I have thyroid problem, worried as weight not getting reduced. I do rotational shifts, due to this am not having proper diet and exercises. Please suggest a diet for me to reduce weight and am getting stretch marks on my body too.

MBBS, MD - MD- Skin & VD

Diet alone does not help in reducing weight. You may loose half an inch or one kg but not more. You will have to do yoga/gym/pilate or something to burn calories. When you work out and have a proper shape, stretch marks will get lighter. Drink milk, take multi vitamin tablet everyday. Eat something light every two hours before and after meal.

Dear lybrate-user, I understand your worries. Your requirements for medicine is a bit higher for your age and duration of diabetes. Tired or exhausted pancreas unable to secrete insulin in optimum amount along with mental stress and physical inactivity may be contributing to such high sugars. You need to become physically very active, regular with healthy food habits and if possible learn some kind of stress management techniques like aol i. E art of living or vipassana. Also follow up with diabetologist regularly with self monitoring of blood glucose (smbg). If required your doctor may advise insulin for a period. Hope this helps you!

Diabetologist, Mumbai
If it is indeed type-1 diabetes, you will have to continue taking insulin for the rest of your life. However, if you are not comfortable with multiple daily injections, then there are different modes of insulin delivery systems like the insulin pump that you can opt for.

I am a diabetic since 1989. I am under continuous treatment and my blood glucose levels remain under control mostly. But for last two years I have been suffering from acute acidity. Doctor has prescribed omez 20 once daily empty stomach. This medicine has given me relief. Can omez 20 be continued for a long time?

Endocrinologist, Thane
Dear lybrate-user, improve your diet, timing of diet. Avoid smoking and alcohol. Avoid fried items. Don't lie down soon after meals. Have omez only when you get acidity. Long term use of omez may lead to bone thinning or osteoporosis. Check the list of medicines and remove offending agent with help of your doctor. Long standard diabetes leads to gastroparesis or slow move of stomach which leads to acid reflux. Discuss this with your doctor.

Mr. Lybrate-user, you can take green tea, but no honey. Green tea is good as it offers antioxidents. But honey containing fructose is not advisable in a diabetic person.

High level of uric acid in the blood is gout & Gout is a kind of arthritis. Dietary measures to overcome gout: high intake of vitamin C -1500mg/day extra fluid can help flush uric acid crystal out. Cherry juice help you alleviate pain & inflammation omega 3- fish like salmon,or fatty acids in flax seeds or nuts help reduce inflammation follow a diet low in fat,low in protein & high in carbohydrate foods which can consumed moderately: beans,mushrooms,cauliflower,cabbage,banana,grapes foods to be consumed occasionally : roots & tubers,country beans,custard apple,chicko exercise is a must,and losing 20 kg in 2-3 months is very unhealthy. Slow and steady can help you lose weight

World Diabetes Day Special - 15 Ways to Effectively Manage Your Diabetes

MBBS, DNB (General Medicine)

World Diabetes Day Special - 15 Ways to Effectively Manage Your Diabetes

World Diabetes Day is celebrated on 14 November, each year. It is the primary global awareness campaign for diabetes as it is one of the major problem of today's time. With an upsurge in the number of people suffering from diabetes, the sole aim of celebrating this day is to create awareness about this disease and suggest preventive measures to those who have not acquired it and provide tips to manage it to those who are living with it. 

So, here are 15 health tips that will help you manage your diabetes effectively: 

  1. You should quit smoking as it is very bad for diabetic patients. Smoking leads to narrowing of the blood vessels, which reduces proper blood circulation.
  2. You have to track your exercise patterns. Take actual notes about your exercise habits and make necessary changes based on the record.
  3. Eliminate fast food from your diet. Avoid eating out at restaurants and avoid taking extra salt, sugar and calories. You should cook your meals at home with light ingredients and less salt and sugar.
  4. Diabetes severely affects your vision and blindness is and blindness is a serious problem which may occur. Hence, get your vision checked regularly to prevent retinopathy.
  5. Avoid having quick coffees. Fancy cups of coffee are full of sugar, which lead to glucose and insulin fluctuation in your body.
  6. You must stay active and fit. This is the most important lifestyle choice for any diabetic patient. By exercising, you will maintain a good shape, your metabolism gets boosted and the insulin production increases as well.
  7. You should use a pedometer to calculate how much you are moving each day while exercising.
  8. Try to consume fruits and vegetables. By trying new vegetables and fruits, you will be able to keep your blood sugar under check and see how your body reacts.
  9. You must increase your amount of fibre intake. Fibre is important for diabetic patients, which keeps the digestive processes to run smoothly. Your cholesterol level decreases and blood sugar levels may reduce if you take enough fibre.
  10. You should chew gum as it keeps your mouth busy. It makes you crave for less food.
  11. You should eat on smaller plates. This is a psychological trick which makes you consume less amount of food and your sugar and calorie levels are maintained.
  12. Before taking any food item or eating out, gather information about them. Learn about diabetes friendly food options at restaurants and check which products you should avoid buying from the market.
  13. You should get your blood sugar levels checked regularly. You should check it several times a day to learn how your body responds to food.
  14. Circulation problems may cause issues with your feet, which may lead to a lack of sensation, cuts and scrapes. Check your feet regularly to notice changes.
  15. Instead of having 2,3 large meals a day, you should take several small meals throughout the day. This will keep your body’s digestive processes active thereby increasing insulin sensitivity.

I am 27 years old. I am suffering from thyroid and irregular periods. Major problem for me is irregular periods and I'm under weight. I want to put on my weight. Suggest me.

MBBS, DNB - Obstetrics and Gynaecology
Gynaecologist, Mumbai
Continue ur thyroid medication.keep tsh in control.check it 3 months apart for atleast twice. Irregular periods may get corrected when tsh gets corrected. For irregular periods consult a gynaec for low dose oc pills for 3 months. For 5 feet 1 inch the normal range of weight is btw 43.1kgs to 53kgs. It bmi is to be calculated rather than just gaining wt. Hypothyroidism causes weight gain even otherwise. Moreover with age metabolism slows down and at gain may happen. Inspire of all this u may eat dairy products, dry fruits like cashewnuts, healthy meals for 3 times a day.
