Mr. lybrate-user, You have not mentioned the blood glucose levels and HbA1c%, to give any comment. Secondly with a grade 3 obesity there is no way of controlling blood glucose without any medication. But if you reduce weight by 5 to 8 % then most probably blood glucose will also come down. Thanks.

How to solve infertility problems ?

DNB (Obst and Gynae), MS (Obst and Gynae- Gold Medalist), MBBS (Gold Medalist, Hons)
Gynaecologist,
The solution is simple. Both you and your partner should consult the doctor and go for basic tests. Further treatment depends on the test results. For the time being, I'l suggest you to have regular intercourse between 12th and 16th days of the menstrual period. Don't worry. All the best.

It is very difficult to give a clear answer why it happened. But it appears the earlier treatment of giving two sulfonylureas (SU) together was a wrong approach. Ideally one of the SUs is given along with metformin most often. Secondly diabetes itself damages glomerular filtering membrane in the kidney, this leads deterioration of kidney function. That leads to increase in creatinine level, protein excretion etc. In such situation Insulin is the best medication for blood glucose control. Ideally fasting glucose should be closer to 100 mg, PP 160 to 170 mg & HbA1c%<7, then only all the long term complications of diabetes can either be postponed or prevented. Thanks.

Mr. Lybrate-user, hypothyroidism slows down metabolic activity and weight gain starts occuring. So it is very essential to maintain tsh levels around 3 to 4 milli units/l, if efforts to reduce weight have to be successful. If she has started taking 50 mcg per day, then tsh should be checked after 6 weeks, if the level remains higher than recommended then further increase may be required. Plus patient also should take the tablets early morning on empty stomach and nothing should be taken for next one and half hour to two hours. Plus should avoid soy beans, soy containing products, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, radish, mustard, peanuts and coffee. Consume good deal of green leafy vegetables, salads and fruits. Always use whole grain flour for chapati and roti. Do not use refined flour like maida. Exercise daily for at least one hour. Thanks.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology

I am 24 years old. I would like to know the reasons diabetics. And also diet for diabetic patients.
Mr. Lybrate-user, the reasons why diabetes develops are multiple. In t1 diabetes there a complete loss of insulin secreting beta cells, due to production of antibodies. T1 is an auto immune disease. T2 is occuring either due to lack of insulin or increase resistance to its action. It is a familial disease, spreads in families. Other contributing factors are over weight or obesity, inactivity, junk foods, aerated sweetened drinks. Diet for a person with diabetes has to be very specifically designed. However, certain precautions to be taken with regard to diet are: avoid sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries and other bakery items, sweetened aerated drinks and high fat milk products. Consume more of green leafy vegetables and salads, permitted fruits about a 100 g a day. Also take high fiber containing foods like whole grain products. Take total calories based on your ideal body weight, extent of exercise and blood sugar levels. Thanks for the question.

Hi lybrate-user tips for weight loss eat fresh vegetables daily. Avoid having sugar completely. Eat whole wheat bread instead of white bread; avoid everything made from white flour and make whole wheat bread, chapattis and brown rice a way of life. Do not skip a meal and eat three meals a day. Drink plenty of water to eliminate the toxins from the system. Limit your fat intake to 2-3 teaspoons a day. Increase the fiber intake as it provides a sense of fullness and also prevents hunger pangs. Take antioxidants for protecting the body against the toxins released during weight loss. Exercise catalyzes your efforts to lose weight and even regular walking for thirty minutes can give you the benefits of an aerobics exercise. To improve the metabolism, try increasing the duration, frequency, intensity of your daily workout. Remember that maintaining the ideal weight is a lifetime commitment and not a short-term affair. Firmly believe that the pleasure of being trim and healthy is far better than the pleasure of eating unwisely.

Hello, you can control diabetes by having a medication prescribed by doctor. Its a degenerative disease inside from your body. But to completely get rid of diabetes, you should have a better control on your food habits. Along with your medication, if you take a proper diet of proteins, amino acids, vitamins and minerals these will work on your body hormonal balancing system once your harmon are working in a balancing way, slowing your degenerative diseases will be repaired and medication dosage will come down. Eventually you can continue diet without medication. Preparing your diet and nutrition chart doesn't much time, maximum half day. Let me know if I can help you with best nutrition. Get rid of diabetes will take time as this degeneration might happened from a long time, but we only come to know when you have a sympton out of it. Let me know for more info.

Do thyroid in male age 25 causes frequent urination and what are the symptoms, natural remedies.
Mr. Lybrate-user, usually hypothyroidism does not increase urination. This symptom is more often seen when there is urinary tract infection or a person has diabetes. Symptoms of hypothyroidism are: weight gain, slow heart rate, intolerance to cold, swelling of face and lower limbs, early fatigue, constant tired feeling, sleepy feeling, joint pains, dry skin, dry hair and hair fall, anxiety, depression, in females menstrual irregularities, excess flow, difficulty in conception. There are no natural remedies. Only treatment option is to supplement thyroxine hormone as this is a deficiency disorder. Thanks.
