Mrabhay kumar blood suagr level of fasting 126 mg and pp above 200 mg is normally considered as frank diabetes. But it is just at the limit. It would be better if you get hba1c% and if the values exceed 6.5%, then it is frank diabetes. Still if you follow a very strict life style modification like 1) exercise for more than 1 h per day (at least brisk walking for more than 1 h), 2) avoid sugar and sweets and fruits like mango, banana, chikkoos and grapes, 3) consume more whole grain flour breads, complex carbohydrates, 4) consume more green salad and green leafy vegetables, 5) try and maintain your weight near normal (ideal body weight = height in cms - 100 x 0.9 = kgs), 6) avoid deep fried fats, 6) refrain from smoking and alcohol. Your caloric intake should be properly calculated based on weight and level of physical activity. If all these guidelines are meticulously followed then there is a possibility for you to check the condition and remain euglycemic.

As a diabetic you should not aim to gain much weight. If still you want, increase proteins in your diet and exercise daily for at least 30 minutes.

Nagamaji, Diabetes mellitus is a disease occurring due to deficiency of insulin or resistance to the action of insulin or both. If a person has been diagnosed to have diabetes, then treatment is a must. Only diet control and exercise are not going to be helpful. In fact drug plus diet and exercise are necessary. A person with diabetes should avoid sweets, direct sugar and jaggery, deep fried foods, junk foods and pastries. Also avoid red meat and egg yolk. Should consume more of green leafy vegetables, salads, permitted fruits (100 g a day). Always use whole grain flour avoid refined foods. Caloric intake should be based on Ideal Body Weight, sugar levels and extent of daily physical exercise. For preventing back ache there are specific exercises for back muscles including some stretching routines or asanas, which should be practiced. Knee pain if it is due to osteoarthritis better to consult an orthopedician.

Sir how can hyper thyroid (THS) can be controlled with out taking medicines. And how can hyper Thyroid can be cured once for all.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Mr Malik, Any disease related to thyroid either hyperthyroidism or hypothyroidism both need to be treated with necessary medicine. Without that there is no way one can control these conditions. Plus these can not be cured, can only be controlled. They remain with us for life time. Some times after a course of antithyroid drug treatment hyperthyroid may completely go away. So my suggestion is to get proper treatment.

Eating foods high in B vitamins, like whole grains, may also help. flax oil, Selenium: Tiny amounts of selenium are needed for enzymes that make thyroid hormones to work properly. Eating selenium-rich foods, such as sunflower seeds or Brazil nuts, can be beneficial. Tyrosine: This amino acid is used by the thyroid gland to produce T3 and T4. Taking a supplement may help, avoid oily foods,junk foods, go for walk. Do Tests every 3 to 6 months. And consult doctor on time.

Avoid milk in tea. No problem in taking 8 cups of tea with reference to your kidneys, but there may be other problems. So try to keep it within 5 cups per day. Don't try to replace water with tea.

Thyroid is an organ which produces hormones. Hormones are internal substances which are produced by the body. They are produced by the signalling mechanism and the only thing that is required for maintaining proper thyroid hormone level is iodine. As per government guidelines, all salt in india is iodised. This is to ensure that people are never iodine deficient. So the only dietary recommendation is to take iodised salt.

Mr. Lybrate-user, looking at the details given show that diabetes is uncontrolled. Needs better control, either through improved treatment and/or diet and exercise. First thing your fasting and pp should be 100 mg and 150 to 160 mg and hba1c% <7. So it is essential to achieve that kind of control, then only all symptoms can be controlled. As regards the precautions: take a balanced diet, providing exact calories based on blood sugar levels, ideal body weight and extent of daily exercise. Plus you should consume more of green leafy vegetables, salads and permitted fruits (100 g a day). Plus exercise daily for at least 1 hour. Avoid alcohol and smoking. In other words you have to follow a modified lifestyle.

Mr. Lybrate-user, if your mother has diabetes then she should be on appropriate drug treatment to control blood sugar effectively. It is essential to achieve strict sugar control to prevent long term complications of diabetes in relation to eyes, peripheral blood vessels, lower limbs, kidney, heart and nerves. As regards the diet she should avoid sweets completely, avoid deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries, sweetened aerated drinks, fructose corn syrup containing products and high fat milk products. She should consume more of green leafy vegetables, salads and permitted fruits about 100 g a day. Total caloric intake has to be based on ideal body weight, blood sugar levels and extent of daily exercise. She should exercise for at least 1 hour a day.
