Sir very good morning sir my father have sugar so please Tell me what to eating so please Tell me sir.
Dear lybrate user, one of the major nutritional substance required for human body is carbohydrate. We take carbohydrate in the form of rice, wheat, sugar etc. The complex molecules of carbohydrate are broken down into simple glucose molecules during digestion & released in the blood stream to be absorbed by the muscle cells. Insulin hormone plays a vital role in the absorption of the glucose molecules by the muscle cells. In abnormal conditions, either due to less production of insulin or due to resistance to insulin, the process of absorption of glucose by the muscles comes to a stand still. The glucose molecules remains in the blood stream which results in the increase in the blood sugar level. This abnormal condition is clinically known as diabetes mellitus. Once a patient is diagnosed with diabetes he has to take regular medicine to keep his blood sugar level within normal limits. Take homoeopathic mother tincture gymnemna sylvestra q, 30 drops, thrice daily, after meals, in a cup of water. Also you need to walk at least 1 hour daily without any interval. Also you need to take a low carbohydrate rich diet.

I am 52 year old person with diabetes and hyper tension. Due sudden death of my father in May, 2015, I also developed symptoms of Chest pain with irritation occasionally. I consulted a senior Cardiologist in Kanpur where at present I am residing. He has undergone at least 06-07 times ECG. Every time it was a normal ECG. But still, I develops chest pain with irritation. The Cardiologist also advised to under CT Angiography test. It was quite normal. Even then some times I develops some Chest pain with irritation without any respiratory problems. Now the same Cardiologist is advising me to undergo Coronary Angiography for further confirmation. My 2D echo test on heart is normal on two occasions. Please advice what to do now and where and whom I should consult.

Follow your cardiologist's advise. And start appropriate drug therapy. In the meanwhile start working on losing at least 20 kg of extra weight by intensive lifestyle modification approach. To achieve weightloss - think long term. Weight loss achieved over short term, always comes back. There is a general approach and a specific approach as per individual patients metabolic profile. Try this general approach for 4 weeks. If this works then continue. If this is not enough then revert for further assessment and customised approach. With customised lifestyle modification approaches, people over 100-150 kg are also losing weight for long term. 1. Do not eat anything sugary or sweet. Zero sweetness in diet. 2. Eat plenty of salad in lunch and dinner along with other foods. 3. Do not drink any liquid calorie like cola or fruit juices. 4. Go for brisk walks or jogging for 45 minutes every day.

I use to take thyrox 50 for my overactive thyroid. Now my tsh is 4.33, should I continue taking the medicine?

I use to take thyrox 50 for my overactive thyroid. Now my tsh is 4.33, should I continue taking the medicine?
Lybrate-user, your tsh level of 4.03 milli units/l is good, shows hypothyroidism is in good control. There is no need to reduce the dose, because on treatment to achieve good control tsh should be between 3 to 4 milli units. In addition continue to follow a proper restricted diet avoiding foods that affect thyroxine action ; like soy beans, soy containing products and cabbage, cauliflower, radish, broccoli, peanuts, mustard and coffee. Plus use whole grain flours for roti and chapati. Consume good deal of green leafy vegetables and fruits. Always use iodinated salt. Check tsh values once in 6 months or so. Thanks.

What are the advantages of doing jogging and skipping? Can it be done at anytime by anyone without considering their age and the underlying bone and muscular disorders. Is this indicative to thyroid dysfunction people? kindly explain.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Mr. Lybrate-user, jogging and skipping both are good exercise. The advantage of doing those is one burns more calories per unit of time compared to walking. Both these are considered as high impact activity, so if any person has preexisting cardiac problem then such exercises are not advised. Age is no barrier. I am my self running 70 now, I run12 to 15 kms 2 or 3 times a week and skip quite a lot (about 1200 to 1600, in batches of 200 each time). Always one should start slow and then scale up. On doing regular exercise bones do become strong.

My friend having a problem of thyroid (goitre) So kindly provide the medicine for the same.

CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology, MBBS
Endocrinologist,
Mr. lybrate-user, It has to be properly investigated to see if goitre is causing hypothyroidism or thyrotoxicity. So by simply mentioning goitre no medicine can be prescribed. Plus in this communication we are supposed to give only general guidelines and no prescriptions. Hence, if you are (your friend) looking for specific treatment advise, then please come back with following details: Thyroid assay results, body weight, height and details of any symptoms experienced. Thanks.

I am a diabetic I have one question if medication cant controll using insulin is better? if so why?

MD-Ayurveda, Basic Life Support (B.L.S), Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)
Ayurveda, Ahmednagar
Medicine works mostly on your pancreas to stimulate insulin naturally present in your body hence no need to supply from outside in early stage of dm for first few years. But when your pancreatic cells get exaust n cannot work properly your doctor will prescribe you insulin. So no one is better or bad its just a matter of time when to shift you from medication into insulin. Lots of factors like your age. Your hba1c profile etc matters for that. We have best ayurvedic medicine for you contact if possible.

The only and best method to control blood glucose is taking modern meicines either oral or insulin injections or both. The drug mentioned by you is probaly only a supportive medicine. Ayurvedic drugs do not go through through clinical trial studies.. So my advise is stick to present treatment. It can be adjusted for better control. If you want any help please come with specific details like fasting, pp blood glucose levels, hba1c%, dietary pattern and extent of daily exercise then I can guide.

Hi Blood sugars in diabetics are always checked with intake of medicines to make sure the medicines are helping them in controlling their diabetes and also it helps in deciding the dose. If you check it without taking medicines it will definitely show high values as you are a diabetic. So always check your blood sugars without stopping your diabetes medicines.
