Dear Lybrate user, I will suggest you to take alkaline diet - drinks lots of coconut water,barley water, wheat grass juice,aloe vera juice. You should drink almond oil 1tsp in hot milk every day. twice a week drinking 1 tsp of turmeric powder in milk or yellow capsule. You should avoid all yeast based products like cakes,pasteries,pattiesand pizza,heavy and frozen food etc.Avoid all cold drinks,curd,yakurt just a week before your menses. The below mentioned combination helps to get rid of PCOD completely after few months usage. Take Kanchnar gugglu 2 twice daily Take chandraprabha vati 2 twice daily Furocyst 1 cap twice daily Chaseberry 1 cap thrice daily Pustiyanuga choornam 1 tsp thrice daily Karppavani elagam 5 GM's twice daily after food.

Can a Diabetic person eat Banana every day? Will it not increase the sugar levels in the body?
being a diabetologist this is the most common question people ask..answer is yes but you have to decide the portion size.extra small banana i.e 6 inch or less contain 18.5 gm of carbohydrate.medium (7-8inch) 27 gm of carbohydrate and large banana (8-9) 31 gm of carbohydrate....the portion size depends on how your blood sugar responds to eating banana or other fruits..good luck

General Physician,
Eat more vegetables and minimum of rice. Wheat, butter sweets etc. Reduce intake to one third of what you eat now. You can read my article on obesity in health tips column in the site, weight gain is the result of sedentary life and overeating do aerobic exercises, jog, skip and run. Eat only half of what you eat now. Avoid or reduce sweets and butter, ghee and food containing these. You need to check for hypothyroid state. Go to lab and test tsh and send me the report in ask privately option.

I am 68 years old male my blood sugar is 160 fasting. Lam taking xila- m its okay or not ?

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
It is not as easy task to control blood sugar in the desired normal range. Whatever we eat is metabolised to sugar in the body to provide energy for our daily activities. For the absolute control, one has to monitor his / her blood sugar at regular intervals (self-monitoring of blood glucose? smbg). Though difficult, this can be done by a glucometer and keep a record. Get an idea of fasting sugar (fbs) and 2 hours after food (ppbs) and check before dinner and after every major food. The basic idea is to reduce the food intake to 1/3 of what you take now. The dictum of sugar control is diet, exercise, diet + medicine and at later stage medicine+ insulin will be needed. For sugar control there is the need for regular advice and follow up. Just one time consultation or advice is not enough to guide a diabetic in scientifically & medically correct manner. For giving you regular follow up you ask me privately with all details like your daily eating pattern and medicines you take. I assure you a proper guidance. If you keep in touch.

What is the difference between type 1 and type 2 diabetes? Which one is curable and which one is incurable?.

MBBS, Diploma in Diabetology, Certificate Course in Gestational Diabetes Mellitus (CCGDM), Post Graduate Course in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Mumbai
What is the difference between type 1 and type 2 diabetes? Which one is curable and which one is incurable?.
Type 1 diabetes is the kind in which the body cannot produce insulin hormone at all and hence daily insulin injections are needed lifelong to control sugar. Missing injections can prove fatal. Type 2 diabetes is the more common form which is mainly due to unhealthy lifestyles in genetically prone people. Lifestyle changes are the mainstay of treatment in this form and the person can be controlled for quite a long duration with tablets. Insulin becomes necessary after the tablets do not work well, which is usually after many years of diagnosis. Neither form is curable, it can only be controlled with medicines.

Take diet for hypothyroidism:- high-carbohydrate foods such as potatoes, rice, pasta and bread, Nutrient-rich foods that improve your health may also benefit your thyroid gland, antioxidant-rich fruits and vegetables more plenty of water: Blueberries, tomatoes, bell peppers, and other foods rich in antioxidants can improve overall health and benefit the thyroid gland. 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 few foods in hypothroidism i.e. caffeine products tea,coffee, tabcco, alcohol / wine , kale, broccoli, spinach, mustard green, cabbage, turnip, millet, cassava, linseeds, pine nuts, soy products as soy milk, tofu, soybeans, soy souce, also avoid stress.

Hello, Its always better to avoid, but if at all it should not go beyond 2 drinks per week...thats max.. Diabetes is all about metabolic problems and alcohol further slows down metabolism. Which is surely for good for the glucose uptake.
