Blood Sugar/ Diabetes is not caused only by sugar but by Excessive Carbohydrates. You need to control/reduce intake of all forms of Carbohydrates like White Rice, White Bread, Maida, Noodles, Buns, Pizzas, Samosas, Potatoes, Bananas, Mangoes etc. ---- Also cut down Colas, Juices, Sweet Tea, Sweets, Cakes, Biscuits etc. Your weight is also a little high and you need to reduce about 5 kgs from your weight and the Sugar will also get controlled that way. Avoid taking Panto medicine on a regular basis. Try to drink more water and eat less fried / spicy stuff. Right now you are on the borderline. Take proper precautions. Get your sugar test done everymonth. Do proper exercise and you will be fine.

Thyroid medicines need to be taken as recommended. Overdosing can be catastrophic. It may lead you to more serious effects than the primary disease itself. This treatment is replacement therapy of deficient hormone in your body. Chances are that you would require this medicine on a very long period basis. You will conceive on the right dose and not on a high dose. Be informed about thyroid better. It helps to be convinced better by your self education.

To control hypothyroidism thyroxine is required. However, guidelines usually say to start treatment when tsh levels cross 10 milli units, as between 5.5 to about 9.9 milli units it is considered as subclinical hypothyroidism. Unless a person has definite symptoms of thyroid deficiency treatment is not started with thyroxine. Even if it is given a lower dose is recommended. To begin with 100 mcg dosage was a bit too high. That is the reason your tsh levels have gone down to 0.082 milli units / ml. Even now the dose of 75 mcg is high. With treatment tsh should be in the range of 3 to 4 milli units / ml so you may reduce the dose.

diet for a diabetic patient is usually specific for each individual patient. It is based on his or her weight, sugar levels and extent of physical activity. However, few tips are as follows: avoid sweets, direct sugar, deep fried foods, fruits like mangoes, chikkoos and grapes. Take a good quantity of green salads. Also avoid ghee and butter and high fat cheese.

What is the right time and way to take Almond, walnut for Dr. citizens. I am on order line of diabetes.
Though certain nuts and oil seeds are healthy for diabetics depending on their glycemic index and micronutrient density, they are calorie dense too. Therefore they should be included under HEALHTY snacking and inbetween meals rather than with meals to break the calories and distribute them evenly throughout the day.

Things To Know About Gestational Diabestes

Things To Know About Gestational Diabestes

Pregnancy is a time when women need to be in the best of their health. Yet, there are various kinds of conditions and ailments that a pregnant woman can suffer from. One of them is gestational diabetes mellitus. Gestational diabetes is a type of diabetes mellitus that usually afflicts pregnant women who are suffering from high glucose levels in their blood. Let us get to know more about this condition.

Timing: Gestational diabetes strikes an expecting mother around the third trimester. This is usually the time when pregnant women exhibit levels that are higher than normal. This may be due to the fact that the placental lactogen can block the action of the insulin receptors, leading to a spike in blood sugar levels. 

Past History of Diabetes: Women who have not previously witnessed a rise in their blood sugar levels or any previous diagnosis of diabetes can also end up contracting gestational diabetes during their pregnancy due to an ineffective insulin response of the body and its chemicals. Also, after suffering from gestational diabetes, women are at a higher risk of suffering from Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus, thereafter. 

Untreated Gestational Diabetes: The children born to mothers, who were not treated properly for gestational diabetes, are usually at risk of various other ailments. These children may be prone to complications during delivery. After birth, they are prone to various issues like low blood sugar levels as well as jaundice. These children may not be able to enjoy a normal delivery, and may have to be delivered via Caesarean Section, and even face premature delivery. 

Food: It is important to monitor the blood sugar levels in gestational diabetes. One of the best ways to do this is to follow a proper diet plan. The food in the diet of these expecting mothers should include dietary fibres, carbohydrates and other nutrients like protein, calcium and iron. It is important to break the meals down into smaller portions or mini meals so that the insulin inhibitors can do their work more effectively, even as the body and the baby remain nourished. 

Exercise: While most forms of exercise are discouraged during pregnancy, it is always a good idea to remain fit by doing your chores and walking. Pre-natal yoga can also help by introducing certain yogic poses that are good for expecting mothers. Gestational diabetes can also be tackled with the help of exercises like walking. 
Gestational diabetes must be treated on time, and properly, so as to avoid complications for the baby and mother during and after birth.

My brother's wife is cancer cured - left breast, more than 8 years. She is healthy now, working as well. I would like to know whether her daughter, 26, is taking medication for thyroid, may have this disease on hereditary basis, in future.

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
See, to ascertain whether it was genetically related she has to check her BRCA genes, usually BRCA 1and 2both are checked and if positive then chances of inherited breast cancers are high. Anyhow, it may be slightly psychologically troublesome as not all cases will develop cancer and there may be other risk factors aswell. She should still go for regular breast self examination on monthly basis, five days after periods are over and can go for mammography after may be 10years as she is only 26.

Douring pregnancy lower limbs do develop some swelling because uterus grows big and put pressure on blood vessels of lower limbs. This is called dependent edema. It disappears invariably post delivery. If one develops hypothyroidism even then swelling of face and lower limbs does occur. Since you are having hypothyroidism, there is a possibility of this complaint. Particularly if tsh levels are not well controlled.

I am 58 years old and a diabetic and having hypothyroidism. I am taking metformin and thyroxine. I heard thyroxine reduces the absorption of metformin. Please advise whether I can continue the treatment ?

Critical Care Training, MD - Internal Medicine, MBBS

If your thyroid and sugar both under control, then don't think too much. Thyroxine is to be taken on empty stomach and metformin to be taken with food and both doesn' t have any interaction with each other.
