Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. For T1 DM only effective drug is Insulin. No other drug is used or recommended. There is a mention of eltroxin tablet in the medicines being taken, that means you also have hypothyroidism. If that is not well controlled weight can go up. You are overweight with a BMI of 28.33 kgs/M2. Please check TSH value, it has to be maintained <3 mU/L for being free from symptoms of hypothyroidism. If that is properly controlled then weight reduction can be possible. Thanks.

massage of hairs/scalp offers better blood circulation to the scalp which provide proper nutrition to that part. this leads to healthy skin and growth of new hairs on scalp. massage the scalp in circular motion at night and wash in the morning. You can use olive oil or any oil for this .

Mr. lybrate-user, Thaks for the query. It is good to know that blood glucose level is well in control. As regards numbness and heaviness in right hand, it could be due to (peripheral neuropathy, which does develop once diabetes goes on for a long period (over months to years). This happens even when glucose control is very good. I am sure you are aware good control means maintaining FBG < 100 mg & PP 150 to 160 mg & HbA1c% <6.8 Most important is to achieve very strict glucose control plus certain medications like methylcobalamine, and some combinations are useful. Plus gabapentine or pragabalin could be used. As regards BP 150/90 mm Hg, is high needs some antihypertensive.In this commiunication we are supposed to give only general guidelines, no prescriptions are allowed. That can be done only in private conversation. Thanks.

Greying of hair is a normal aging process which starts around 30 years of age. If happening before this age, it is called premature greying. The hairs which have already turned white cannot be turned back to black. But you can delay the process of greying of hair by some lifestyle modifications. Take adequate sleep and drink lots of water, eat lots of fruits and green leafy vegetables. Few multivitamin tablets can also be prescribed for the same. There is also one lotion which is supposed to work. You can contact me with photos for detailed​ prescription.,

Hi !Samantha, Laser is the best and only permanent solution for unwanted hair. Lasers in Beuty Clinics can never give you results. E + Laser treatment done by a qualified and experienced doctor can give you very good results. Except for this there is no other treatment that can remove your hair permanently, and they may lead to frustration because they are not successful.

First of all I would say, this is atrocious. Beating a 4 year old child, atleast 25 slaps at a time. This person needs help psychologically to deal with single parenthood. And also looks like the child is in danger. Please take her to an expert who can work with her and help the child as well. Contact us for further help.

How Does High Fiber Diet Affect Your Heart?

MBBS, MD , DM Cardiology
Cardiologist, Bhopal
How Does High Fiber Diet Affect Your Heart?

Most people associate fibre to be good for the digestive system. It helps to add roughage and therefore helps in avoiding constipation. When we dig deeper, the fibre seems to do good not just to the stomach but to the heart as well. Those who are prone to develop heart disease should make an attempt to include more fibre in their diet and reap the rich benefits it offers.

There are two classifications of fibres

  1. Dietary
  2. Functional 

Dietary are found in diet products and functional being added fibre through various food supplements. Soluble and insoluble fibre, based on their solubility in water. Most foods contain some amounts of both. The insoluble one has more digestive benefits, as it adds to the roughage. Both types have cardiac benefits.

Read on to know some of the cardiac benefits of fibres.

  1. Reduces cholesterol: There is good cholesterol which is essential for the body, and there is bad cholesterol causes heart disease. What fibres do is reduce the amount of bad and overall cholesterol in circulation. The fibre binds to the cholesterol and removes it from the body, which otherwise would get into circulation and lead to plaque formation and heart disease.
  2. Reduces blood pressure: Because the cholesterol does not circulate in the blood stream, the blood is not as viscous and therefore the vessels exert much less pressure to allow for free flow. A diet change to whole grains can show a marked difference in people with hypertension.
  3. Weight management: Eating fibre means more bulk and fewer calories so that a person feels full after eating smaller amounts. This is a great way to lose weight and bring preexisting heart disease under control.
  4. Stroke prevention: The circulating cholesterol usually gets sluggish and settles down along the walls of the blood vessels. This attracts more cholesterol, which eventually forms what is knowns as plaque. When this plaque attains a considerable size, it gets dislodged, circulates in the blood stream, and can reach any of the vital organs. When it reaches the heart or brain, it can lead to heart attack or stroke. By removing the cholesterol which leads to all these complications, fibre reduces the incidence of stroke and heart attacks.
  5. Management of diabetes: Blood pressure, increased weight, and heart disease all are predisposing factors and have common contributing factors as does diabetes. Controlling all these helps in prolonging the onset of diabetes and reducing its severity too.

High-fiber diet mainly reduces cholesterol which helps in multiple ways to maintain not just a healthy body but also improves the overall quality of life. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Cardiologist.

Hey I want to know abt fat burners do they work does it have any side effects on health.
Hye, Thanks for the query. Firstly it is important to understand that weight /fat loss involves sensible eating and exercise. All the so called fat burners will only give you muscle and bone loss. The fats will remain as it is.
