If you have diabetes, make sure you take care of your mouth. People with diabetes are at risk for mouth infections, especially periodontal (gum) disease. Periodontal disease can damage the gum and bone that hold your teeth in place and may lead to painful chewing problems. Some people with serious gum disease lose their teeth.

due thyroid irregular period may occurs .for it you can take..tab. ovral-L X 21 DAYS..WAIT FOR 7 DAYS AND START AGAIN FROM 6 TH DAY OF MENSES..TILL 3 CYCLE OF MENSES.. SYP. AMYCORDIAL 15 ML TDS AFTER MEAL..REGULAR FOR 3 CYCLE OF MENSES.Lifestyle changes. Some women have changes in their period because they exercise too much. Reducing the frequency and intensity of your workouts may help your period return to normal. Stress leads to many body changes, including irregular periods. Relaxation techniques and counseling may be helpful. Extreme changes in your weight can affect your periods. Weight gain can interfere with the body's ability to ovulate, which controls your menstrual cycle. Losing weight may help resolve irregular periods. Extreme sudden weight loss can also lead to infrequent or irregular periods. Hormone therapy (HT). An irregular menstrual cycle is often due to a lack or imbalance of certain hormones in the body. Birth control pills (oral contraceptives) often containing the hormones estrogen and progesterone are commonly prescribed to help control irregular periods. A hormone medication called progestin can also help trigger periods in women who do not get them. Other hormone treatments may be prescribed to women with irregular periods who are having difficulty getting pregnant. Surgery. Sometimes, scarring or structural problems in the uterus (womb) or fallopian tubes may lead to irregular periods. Surgery may be done to correct any structural problems or birth defects, particularly in women who want to have children. It may also be done to remove severe scar tissue (adhesions) in the reproductive tract.

My sugar level is getting more than normal. What I have to stop eating?

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
Pediatrician,
My sugar level is getting more than normal. What I have to stop eating?
You stop simple sugars like sugar, sweets ans candies. If you tell your fbs, 2hr ppbs and hba1c, I can guide you better, ask personally. Diabetes affects all organs in the body? eyes, kidneys, nerves, reproductive system all are affected, in fact, from toe to hair. For diabetic control, patient and doctor should be n constant touch for regular follow up and advice. It is not as easy task to control blood sugar in the desired normal range. Whatever we eat is metabolised to sugar in the body to provide energy for our daily activities. For the absolute control, one has to monitor his / her blood sugar at regular intervals (self-monitoring of blood glucose? smbg). Though difficult, this can be done by a glucometer and keep a record. Get an idea of fasting sugar (fbs) and 2 hours after food (ppbs) and check before dinner and after every major food. The basic idea is to reduce the food intake to 1/3 of what you take now. The dictum of sugar control is diet, exercise, diet + medicine and at later stage medicine+ insulin will be needed. There are different diet plans of varying calories for each person depending on his activity & life style. For sugar control there is the need for regular advice and follow up. Just one time consultation or advice is not enough to guide a diabetic in scientifically & medically correct manner. For giving you regular follow up you ask me privately with all details like your daily eating pattern and medicines you take. I assure you a proper guidance.

The moment we get diagnosed with diabetes, our minds cringe in fear by the thought of all the restraint on our life, especially diet, which would be imposed on us for a lifetime, taking away the joy from celebrations and fun eat out sessions etc. Diet management is of utmost importance in diabetes not only to control blood sugar levels but also to keep other risks such as body weight and heart risk factors at bay. People with HbA1c levels mild to moderately elevated (<7.5%) at diagnosis, may be advised to take a diet and lifestyle modification trial before they are put on any drugs and some of these people will be able to control their diabetes/pre-diabetes for a significant amount of time without drugs. Even for people on drugs or insulin diet and lifestyle management is equally important. But, the evidence based medical advice, on diet for diabetics, is not that restrictive and allows a lot of room for having fun with food! All the expert agencies on diabetes in the world, such as ADA, AACE, IDF and our own ICMR, have published guidelines on managing your diet in diabetes, which we at FWI analyzed to formulate our advice for diabetics, which you will find below: The three most important considerations in diet management in diabetic people are: Managing the carbohydrate intake to control blood sugar Managing the overall calorie intake to lose weight or to maintain a healthy weight Keeping the intake bad fats and salt in check to reduce the risk of CVD 1. Managing the carbohydrate intake to control blood sugar Diabetes is a primarily a disease of insulin resistance or insulin deficiency, in which the physiological action of insulin, that of helping in uptake of blood glucose by body cells and thereby keeping the blood sugar levels in control, is less than adequate. All dietary carbohydrates are broken down by our digestive system into glucose, which then is added to the blood. Therefore, the most important consideration to prevent or delay complications of diabetes is keeping the blood sugar levels in control Diabetics have to know their carb containing food very well and monitor their carb intake on regular basis, but they are not required to give up totally on sugar, rice or sweets, contrary to what is the general notion! Same amount of carbs whether as whole grains or table sugar, will raise the Post Prandial (two hours post meal) blood sugar to nearly the same level, so substituting regular roti with say a laddoo, once in a while is OK, provided you make sure that laddoo gives the same amount of carbs as the rotis you have given up and your overall calorie intake in the meal is constant as well. This you can manage by portion size control and carb counting But having laddoos instead of roti regularly is not a good idea because good sources of carbohydrates such as whole grains have proteins, dietary fiber, vitamins and minerals in addition, whereas bad sources such as table sugar or laddoo will not have these and will give you empty calories. Also, these sweets will be more calorie-dense (1 tablespoon sugar gives 60 calories whereas one roti gives nearly 80 calories) and will not be very filling! So, if you want to have simple sugar or sweets occasionally, make sure that you replace the healthy carbs with these sweets, such that same amount of calories and carbs are provided by them and don’t just add sweets to your regular meal Remember, quantity control and moderation are absolutely imperative! 2. Managing the overall calorie intake to lose or maintain a healthy weight Losing excess body weight helps in patients with diabetes in several ways. Besides this will help you in controlling your risk of heart diseases and a host of other diseases at the same time! In diabetes, even losing 3-5% of your existing body weight will result in better blood sugar levels, but losing up to 10% results in better blood lipid profile and reduced risk of heart disease To know more, go to ‘weight loss for diabetics’ and read your way into fitness! 3. Keeping the intake of ‘bad’ fats and salt in check to reduce the risk of CVD The complications of CVD, include heart attack, stroke (brain attack), foot gangrene etc. All complications of CVD, which is the biggest cause of death in diabetics Therefore, dietary modifications to manage risk factors for CVD are very important in diabetics. These modifications include controlling the intake of salt and ‘bad’ fats in your diet, and the recommended levels of intake are lower than those in general population Diabetics in general are often advised even by their doctors and dieticians, some times, to consume ‘low fat’ diet to manage their heart risk. But In India, where average intake of carbs is much higher than recommended intake of fat, for most people, such an advice is not only erroneous, it is harmful! (Read: Indian diet: ‘pro’s and ‘con’s, to know more) Instead what is needed is to replace the ‘bad’ fats, present in high quantities in vanaspati (found in snack items and restaurant/ fast food meals etc.), full cream milk, butter, ghee and red meat (but not mutton: read more), with vegetable oils (such as olive, canola, rice bran etc. But not coconut and palm oil)

I am 47 years old woman. I am suffering with thyroid, diabetics, bp. Give me few suggestions for all these.
If you are on treatment for all three conditions, then to say you are in control following levels should be achieved: fasting glucose near 100 mg, pp 150 to 160 mg & hba1c%<7. Bp<130/80 mm hg, tsh between 3 to 4 milli units /ml. Plus exercise regularly which is helpful in all three conditions. Diet restriction and salt restriction also is important. Consuming of green leafy vegetables and salads is very necessary.

Tips for increased uric acid levels and gout

DNHE, Fellowship in Cardiac Rehabilitation, BHMS
Homeopath,
Tips for increased uric acid levels and gout
Watch your weight. If you are obese then try to lose weight by regular exercise.

Eat fresh fruit, vegetables, whole wheat products and some pulses (high in purine) every day.

Enjoy low-fat milk and dairy products daily.

Keep an eye on the purine content of food. Avoid offal, shellfish and crustaceans and tinned fish such as sardines in oil.

Uric acid diet should be relatively high in carbohydrates, moderate in protein and low in fat. Complex carbohydrates like whole grain cereals, fruits and vegetables contain fiber that can help in proper digestion of the foods and assimilation of the nutrients.

Eat no more than 100 gm of meat, sausages, fish and poultry a day.

Say no to alcohol and sweetened cold drinks.

Fresh fruits like apples, bananas, oranges and lime are beneficial. Black cherries are considered to be beneficial in reducing uric acid levels.

Drink at least two liters of low-calorie fluids a day. Recommended fluids are water, tea and fruit juice.

Please note that normal uric acid levels in our body.

Men 3.5 to 7.0 mg/dl
Women 2.5 to 5.7 mg/dl
