I am becoming fat now-a-days .I had fasting blood sugar level of 135 mg/dl today morning. I was diagnosed to be pre-diabetic. Doctor told me to take istamet tablet daily once after breakfast, if not I would become diabetic in 3 years. He told that 70% of people who had this drug were relieved from diabetes. Is it true. Should I continue with this drug? What is your opinion?

Dear lybrate-user, considering your height and weight your bmi looks ok. A fbs (fasting blood sugar) 135 mg% is not prediabetic. It falls in category of diabetes. Never rely only on fbs. Please check plbs (post lunchbs) and three months average hba1c at the onset of treatment. Istamet can't prevent or reverse diabetes.

Dear have you been taking opinion from your doctor. I would say this can also be due to increased sugar levels and weight. Please ensure you are eating something healthy and do at least 30-40 minutes of exercise. You are just 45 and I think there is a long way to go. Do not worry, stay positive and start taking action on how to correct. Please get in touch in case you need further assistance. Thanks

Hello- Use of condom is absolutely safe for pregnancy and for genital health so there is absolutely no harm in continuing that. Use of coconut oil for lubrication is also good however take precaution that the oil should not be contaminated with a dirty finger or a dirty surrounding.

I am having gestational diabetes, sugar is high, please suggest diet plan for sugar control.

Diabetologist, Bangalore
I am having gestational diabetes, sugar is high, please suggest diet plan for sugar control.
Hi First of all congratulations for your little one. Check your blood sugars atleast once a day. Your fasting blood sugar should be between 70-90 mg/dl and after meals it should be 110-140 mg/dl. Have small meals every 2-3 hrs. Eat high protein diet like lots of sprouts, paneer, channa. Avoid carbohydrates like rice based food, pastas, biscuits. Drink lots of water and eat in lots of salads. Don't take fruit juices, eat the fruit. Drink atleast 2 glasses of milk a day. Since your blood sugar is high, do not control it by starving or dieting too much, this can affect your little ones health. Eat adequately but eat the right food. If there is a need for insulin go with it, do not hesitate as insulin is very safe. Lastly exercise regularly.

Mr. Lybrate-user, the sugar levels mentioned (145 - 100 mg), are those fasting or pp? further it is not clear when you say 145 to 100 mg. Better to mention exact fasting, pp levels and hba1c%. That will give a clear idea of severity of diabetes. In diabetes a person should avoid sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries, other bakery items, items made out of maida and other refined flour. Consume more of green leafy vegetables, salads and permitted fruits. Always use whole grain flour for chapati and roti. For achieving good control fasting glucose should be closer to 100 mg, pp 150 to 160 mg/100 ml & hba1c% <7. Thanks.

I am having thyroid issues and I am not undergoing any medication. I want to reduce weight. But people used to say that for individuals with such conditions, losing weight is a tough task. Is that true? Is the medication necessary for thyroid? How to loose fat?

Not at all. It's all in the mind whether you really want to reduce weight the natural way and strive hard for it. Focus on your diet: you really need to focus on your diet. When losing weight, many people feel that it is okay to eat what you want and then workout a lot. This is completely incorrect. The secret behind getting fit lies 80 percent in your diet, while the rest 20 percent lies in working out. This is an integral part in losing weight at home and being able to sustain it. Some of the famous weight loss foods. Green tea soya cinnamon multi grains wheat bran wheat grass lemon grass flaxseed pumpkin seeds sunflower seeds leeks lettuce broccoli olive oil quinoa aloe vera. Combine your diet with good physical activity. As you exercise, calories are burned and your body fat percentage decreases. So, exercising not only helps you lose belly fat, it also sheds fat from other areas. Running and walking are two of the best fat-burning exercises. Plus, the only equipment you need is a good pair of shoes. Between the two, running burns more calories, but walking really isn't too far behind. Take personalised expert dietary advice. Thanku.

Hair fall, dandruff and tendency for gray hair are dependent on several factors. From stress anaemia to thyroid we have good treatment in homeopathy without causing any side effects. Homoeo medicines are given internally to restore healthy growth of hair and prevent hair fall. Precautions for care of your hair -take nutritious healthy high protin food -have regular vigorous physical exercise so that blood circulation reaches hair follicles and nourishes the hair. -avoid mental stress and smoking and such unhealthy habits. -use warm or cold water for bath and not very hot water. - hard water is harmful. Boiling and cooling will reduce hardness. - when the hair is wet, it is weaker and don't rub too much with towel. - use wide toothed comb so that there is no pulling pressure on the hair.

Mr. Lybrate-user, the sugar levels are ok, only after food is high. To control these levels, you need to take appropriate anti diabetic drugs, plus control the diet and exercise daily for at least 1 hour a day, brisk walking is good. Food to be taken is like every one of us, but no sweets, no direct sugar or gur, no deep fried foods, no junk foods and pastries. Also avoid sweetened aerated drinks, high fat milk products, red meat, egg yolk. Fish is good, but not fried one. Consume good deal of green leafy vegetables and salads.

It might be a temporary symptom, so don't worry. Get back to your doctor, (it may me due to uncontrolled diabetes, peripheral neuropthy.) be regular in taking your medications and add some physical activity so that your sugar control balances efficiently. See that you eat something before and after the activity. Increase your activity level in a graded manner according to your convenience.

Hiiii it is really good that sugar is under control. Main reason of dietetic is. Sugar is nt properly digested in the body so it stay remains in the blood. Most of the tym week digestion is followed by diabetes and obesity. Thanku.

I would need to know what your body mass index is. That is calculated using your height in cm and weight in kg. Also, the type of work you do, your physical activity and medications being taken.

From the report provided, you are not a diabetic (assuming that you don't take any meds for diabetes). Howver, if you want to make it double sure, get hba1c done.
