I am 5'3" and 116 pounds. When I eat I seem to get full very fast. It doesn't take much food to make me feel full but I still have the desire to eat. I get bloated almost every single time I eat. I eat a wide variety of foods and I try to eat healthy as much as I can. But why am I feeling so full so fast? And is there anything I can do to prevent or ease the bloatedness?

Lybrate-user, my suggestion is if you do some yogasanas pertaining to abdomen like pawan muktasana, mandukasana and abdominal exercises plus regular brisk walking for over 1 hour a day, this problem can be overcome. If need be you may take some digestive enzymes. Thanks.

Mr. lybrate-user, If you have diabetes it is absolutely essential to get blood glucose under strict control with fasting closer to 100 mg, PP 150 to 160 mg and HbA1c% <6.8. If these levels are achieved, then your general health will remain in very good shape. Apart from taking appropriate treatment you will have to exercise regularly for at least 1 hour a day plus take a balanced and restricted diet. Avoid sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries, bakery items, foods made out of maida, sweetened aerated drinks, sweet corn syrup containing products and highly processed packaged foods. Consume more of green leafy vegetables and salads. Fruits like water melon, orange, sweet lime, pomegranate, papaya, apple, pear and guava can be taken. But with good glucose control and only about 100 g a day.

Mr. lybrate-user, Ther is no permanent solution for gout or raised uric acid. If there is severe pain and arthritis then specific drugs may have to be taken. Plus following foods should be avoided: organ meat, red meat, certain sea foods like sardines, scallop, herring, haddock, salmon, trout, mussels and mushrooms. Thanks.

Building Muscle with Diabetes Weight training can help increase your metabolism Weight training can help increase your metabolism Having diabetes won't stop you from building muscle. However, it's wise to follow a few precautions when it comes to gaining muscle. There are many different types of exercise and one of the most popular is strength or power training, which is very effective for building strong bones and muscles. Strong muscles collect oxygen and nutrients from the blood much more efficiently than weak ones, meaning that any physical activity you do will require less cardiac work and put less strain on your heart. As well as being good for the heart, they also improve weight control and help the body remain sensitive to the hormone insulin, which is vital for keeping blood sugar levels in check and preventing or controlling Here are some tips on how you can build strong, lean muscle, without affecting your diabetes: Load up on protein Protein intake is vital for building muscle. However, your body constantly drains its protein reserves for other uses such as producing hormones, resulting in less protein available for muscle building. To counteract this, you need to build and store new proteins faster than your body breaks down old proteins. You should look to consume about 1 gram of protein per pound of body weight, which is roughly the maximum amount your body can use in a day. Good sources of protein include: Chicken Tuna Eggs, milk and cottage cheese Protein shakes (see below for more about shakes) Remember, the more protein your body stores (protein synthesis), the larger your muscles grow. Have a protein shake before your workout Protein shakes are very effective for improving strength. While many trainers have a post-workout shake, research has shown that drinking a shake containing at least 6 grams of amino acids - the muscle-building blocks of protein - and 35 grams of carbohydrates 30-60 minutes before exercising increases your protein synthesis more than drinking the same shake after training. "Since exercise increases bloodflow to your working tissues, drinking a carbohydrate-protein mixture before your workout may lead to greater uptake of the amino acids in your muscles, says Kevin Tipton, PhD, an exercise and nutrition researcher at the University of Texas. Good quality whey-protein powders usually contain at least 30 grams of protein per serving, as well as a healthy supply of vitamins and minerals. Other liquid supplements such as weight-gain powders can also provide a lot of high quality protein and nutrients in each serving, but they also tend to be extremely high in calories, carbohydrates and sugar. While this is sufficient for most weight lifters, it is not ideal for those with conditions such as type 2 diabetes, for whom weight loss may be a key goal. Work your biggest muscles If you're new to weight lifting or strength training, just about any workout will be intense enough to increase protein synthesis and build muscle. On the Forum Protein Shake/Supplement for Muscle Building Building toned muscles with type 1? Building muscle Muscle and strength building However, if you're experienced with weights, you'll see the biggest and fastest results by focusing on the large muscle groups, like the back, legs and chest. The best exercises for these body parts are squats, dead-lifts, bench press, leg press, pull-ups, bent-over rows, shoulder press and dips. Add two or three sets of 8 or 12 repetitions to your workout, with about 60 seconds' rest between sets. Eat a high-quality meal after training Post-workout meals or snacks should be high in carbohydrates and protein. Carbohydrates are needed to fuel exercise. As well as being a vital energy source they also play a role in the release of insulin, which regulates levels of blood sugar and is also the body’s most potent anabolic hormone. However, people with diabetes are generally advised to limit their carb intake to keep their blood sugar levels under control as their bodies struggle to produce insulin or don’t use the insulin produced effectively. The problem with this though is that a lack of stored carbs can result in the body using protein for energy production, thus leaving less protein for building muscle. The key is to cut out bad carbs such as. Refined, processed carbohydrates found in white bread, potatoes, pasta and rice from your diet and replace them with good, unprocessed carbs from fruit and vegetables, beans, nuts, seeds and whole-grain versions of bread, pasta and rice. Foods with good carbs generally have a lower glycemic index (GI), which means they tend to break down slowly to form glucose. Low GI foods also have a high nutritional value and provide prolonged release of energy. Drink plenty of water Adequate water consumption is one of the most overlooked factors in exercise. Water comprises up to 70% of the human body and if you're dehydrated, your muscle size suffers as well. The other way of looking at it is that one pound of muscle can hold up to three pounds of water. Rest Rest is another hugely overlooked factor in building strong, lean muscle. The simple fact is that after an intense workout, the body needs the proper nutrients and recovery time to grow bigger and stronger. In fact, your muscles grow when you're resting, not when you're working out. If you’re a beginner, do a full-body workout followed by a day of rest. Alternatively look at setting aside at least 3 days of rest each week. Consume good fats A common misconception among the general public is that all types of fat are bad for you. While saturated fats and trans fats (i.e. Bad fats) increase cholesterol and your risk of certain diseases, monounsaturated fats and polyunsaturated fats can have the opposite effect and benefit your overall physical and mental health. They are also important for muscle growth. Good sources of healthy fats such as omega-3 fatty acids include: Fish - salmon, tuna, mackerel, herring, trout and sardines Avocados Olives and olive oil Nuts - almonds, hazelnuts, pecans, walnuts, cashews and macadamia nuts Peanut butter Tofu Sunflower, sesame, and pumpkin seeds, and flaxseed.

Mr. Lybrate-user, hypothyroidism is not a curable condition. It can only be controlled by regular treatment. Tsh levels must be maintained between 3 to 4 milli units/ml for relief from all symptoms including weight gain. Vit d supplements can help correct that deficiency. But for hypothyroidism treatment has to be for lifetime. Thanks.

Alcohol is a direct source of increasing blood sugars. That is it easily gets digested and increases the blood sugar levels in the body. Therefore alcohol intake further only worsens the blood sugar levels in diabetic patients. It would be better to avoid alcohol intake to help managing sugars and therefore prevent the development of any diabetic complications further.

Dear doctor, i am diabetic and my ppps is 187.0 mg/dl. Now i am taking metsmal 1000. Please advise.
Blood sugar level (pp 187 mg/100 ml) is fairly ok. However, to bring it down further you have to exercise for more than 1 hour every day, follow the dietary advise meticulously, avoid sweets, direct sugar, fruits like mango, chikkoos, grapes, bananas and aoid smoking and alcohol. If you follow the changed life style meticulously, sugar levels can be brought down further.

Khusiji, You have grade 1 obesity with a BMI of 33.71 kgs/M2, meaning you are having almost 27 kgs extra weight. If hypothyroidism is not in control, then weight reduction is difficult. When on treatment TSH should be between 3 to 4 mU/L, to be free from all symptoms. So please check the level and if it is high then Thyroxine dosage may have to be increased. Then check TSH after 6 weeks, to see if desired levels are achieved. Thanks.

Quest" What is the initial symptoms of diabetes? How can be people be alerted from such type of diseases.
Mr Faisal, Diabetes mellitus, generally does not produce any symptoms, that is why many people do not come to know that they have a problem. However, when disease develops fully it may cause excess urination. excess thirst, excess hunger, unexplained tiredness, weight loss. Initiation of proper treatment invariably corrects all the symptoms. To know whether one has diabetes is to check blood sugar levels periodically, once in 6 months to one year. Particularly if parents have T2 DM, then all the children must do a periodic check up.

Hi at tsh level of 6.91 milli units/ml, no treatment is advised. Hormone replacement is suggested only once tsh levels cross 10 milli units. Hypothyroidism is a condition occurring due to thyroxine hormone deficiency. This hormone is needed for brain development and normal functioning. Plus it is required for multiple metabolic functions in the body. If that is not made available, then there can be very serious consequences like myxedema. Plus in females when tsh levels are high, conceiving is not possible, fetal development is affected, brain development of fetus is affected, miscarriages occur. So please decide for your self what you want to do. In the world tody, with out taking thyroxine tablets there is no treatment for hypothyroidism.
