Hello sir, I am 47 years female and I have sugar last 2 years what should I do? Please tell me.
tips to control diabetes 1-Losing Extra Weight:-helps lowering blood pressure and cholesterol too. For woman: waist of 80 cm or more & for man: waist of 90 cm or more are at risk 2- Constant and regular food timings :-improves metabolic activity and helps in reducing weight. 3- Split your meals and eating in moderate amount:-, improves your metabolic rate as the food u take is not concentrated at one time. 4- No long Gaps and skipping of meals:-. Never miss out breakfast. 5- No overeating:-Never eat in a bulk on one time .Eat your food slowly, chew well. 6- Proper Exercise and work outs:- Brisk walking for 30 min. atleast five times a week is the best and easiest way of exercising. You can also try Cycling, swimming, dancing. Timings for exercise should be fixed and regular. Avoid heavy exercise. Do not eat right away after a workout . 7-constant and regular timings for medication 8-Avoid fried foods and meat: Limit fats and sweets. Rather choose a variety of foods including whole grains, fresh vegetables, salads, fruits, low fat dairy products. 9- Take high-fibre and complex carbohydrates:-like oats as they are easily broken down to basic sugars. Add whole grain foods in your diet. Avoid carbohydrates like white bread, pasta, pizza , candies, and snacks .Instead include high-fiber carbohydrates like wheat bran, flaxseed and methi seeds to your wheat flour. This will increase fibre in your diet.

Sir my daddy is 76 years and he does not have BP nor Sugar. He is healthy aged man. But in June he suffered paralytic stroke and has a clot in his brain he was in Apollo hospital for 3 days and then discharged so our doctors for 2 months gave him medicines like Ecosprin 150 mg, Remetor 40 mg, Pantocid 40 and Thyronorm 12. 5 mcg. After 2 months Doctor changed my daddy's tablets he asked to stop using all the above medicines and just use Rosufit CV 10 mg everyday after lunch. Now after 1 month today when I went for regular check Doctor said my daddy BP was 120/84 and his pulse says frequent Ectopic. Even after discharge in june from hospital they placed Holter for 24 hrs and even that reading also said SV Ectopic beats 13, And 24 hrs holter analysis shows frequent VPC'S in the form of BIGEMINY NOTED, No runs of VS/SVT MAXIMUM HEART RATE 114 BPM, OCCASIONAL BRADYCARDIA MINIMUM HEART RATE 54 BPM, NO SIGNIFICANT PAUSE. Sir this above reading was in the month of June not todays. But today Doctor when he was holding my daddy hand to check his pulse he said Pulse frequent ectopic. And it's due to his old age and again changed the medicine from Rosufit CV to Rosuvas Gold. Sir I'm really worried because since June after he suffered paralytic stroke every month medicines are changing and I'm scared and worried. Sir as thyroid is borderline he is still advised to take thyronorm 12. 5 mcg and as it is just borderline and is that effecting his pulse? His thyroid is TSH is 5.07. Please tell me is there anything serious with my daddy's heath. Any serious heart or other problem will come or what? Not understanding just suffering. Please help. Thanking you.

Nothing much to worry. At his age, ectopics are quite common. The stroke could have been caused because of ectopics, as they alter hemodynamics of the blood vessels supplying the brain. Thus, the clot & paralytic stroke. Glad to learn he is recovering. He will be fine on these medications. Relax.

Following are the recommendations for your mother :- Pay close attention to your food choice. ·        Eat less carbohydrate food sources like chapatti, rice, noodles, pasta, bread etc as they help in gaining weight and storing fat. ·        While having lunch or dinner eat vegetables and dal to fill your stomach rather eating lots of chapattis or rice. ·        Have a healthy breakfast like poha, idli, upma, plain dosa, oats, dalia or khichdi with vegetables. ·        Eat a balance diet including good quality proteins like: fish, lean chicken and eggs. If you are a vegetarian then include skimmed milk, low fat paneer, butter milk, soy bean or soy milk in your diet. ·        Avoid ghee, butter or vanaspati. Prepare your diet with vegetable oil like sunflower, safflower soybean or olive oil. ·        Eat plenty of salads. ·        Eat fresh fruits including apple, orange, pineapple, papaya, sweet lime, berries, guava, watermelon, mask melon etc. ·        Avoid eating outside junk and fried foods like pizza, pasta, roll, burgers, cakes, chocolates and cookies. ·        Have an early dinner. The earlier the better, giving your system more time to digest the food. ·        Avoid cold drinks/alcohol as they add empty calories to your diet. ·        Avoid fat enriched milk products like cheese, sweets, full fat cream etc. ·        Drink 3 liters of water in a day. ·        Try to have less sugar in food and beverages. ·        Try to drink 2 cups of green tea in a day as green tea helps in weight loss by aiding digestion. ·        Avoid red meat like mutton, beef, lamb or pork. ·        Eat sprouts or roasted chana, whenever you feel hungry.

Mr. lybrate-user, Honey contains sucrose which is same as sugar. If person with diabetes takes it then it is like eating sugar. There will be a rapid increase in the blood glucose level, depending on how much honey is taken. Plus I have no idea as what advantage honey has in "ulcer like condition" Hence I am of te opinion it should be avoided. Thanks.

Mr. Lybrate-user s r k, to suggest specific diet I need to know some more details like fasting and pp sugar levels, hba1c%, dietary pattern, extent of daily exercise and drugs with dosage. Plus your tsh value (15.3 milli units/ml) is also high, this needs to be brought down to around 3 to 4 milli units / ml when you are on treatment for hypothyroid. As a rule a person with diabetes should avoid sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods and pastries. Also should refrain from alcohol and smoking. Consume more of green leafy vegetables, salads and permitted fruits about 100 g a day. Total calories to be taken should match your body weight, exercise level and sugar levels. Plus you should take 4 to 5 meals in a day, with each being smaller in quantity so that there is no excess glucose rise.

Dear lybrate-user! green tea is a normal diet supplement. It has no nutritional benefits. Its believed to have some antioxidants. It is not an approved treatment or cure for blood pressure, diabetes and gall stones. Hence you may choose to drink green tea how many times in a day as you may feel like. But pls do not use it as a substitute for anti blood pressure and blood glucose medications. It will cause problems then. Best wishes.

Dear I suppose you meant constipation as your problem. That can be because of antibiatic medicine. Was any new medicine introduced of late? also sedentary lifestyle, poor fiber intake and inadequate fluids can harden stools. Try to walk more with more water and fibrous diet along with review of prescription will help.

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.

It is VERY difficult for a diabetic since 10 years, to reduce his blood sugar levels by diet control alone. I strongly recommend that you take medicines too, under a doctor's supervision.

You can take 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. 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. Tests every 3 to 6 months.i.e. t3,t4,tsh, also do vit.D. and vit. B., s.calcium.

There is evidence that certain dietary supplements and vitamins can help with certain types of pain. Fish oil is often used to reduce pain associated with swelling. Topical capsaicin, derived from chili peppers, may help with arthritis, diabetic nerve pain, and other conditions. There's evidence that glucosamine can help relieve moderate to severe pain from osteoarthritis in the knee. Do reply back for private consultation. And detailed treatment plan.

Hello Your HbA1C value is very good. Which means your blood sugar is under good control because your taking the tablet. If you stop it, blood sugars will increase. Maybe after 3 months if your HbA1C reduces further, instead of stopping the medicine, dosage should be reduced.

Lybrate-user, if you are on treatmnent with thyroxine tablets, then tsh should be between 3 to 4 milli units/l for complete symptoms control. In hypothyroidism there is no cure. Treatment has to go on for life time. If tsh levels are not maintained as mentioned above then efforts to reduce weight will not be benefiial. So first get that right. Thanks for the question.

She has a thyroid problem and takes thyroxine 25 tablets. Did she continue these tablets.

MBBS, DNB (General Medicine)

Dear lybrate user, whoever has got a problem of thyroid-need to take their medicine regularly and for ever. Thyroid medicines are like supplemental hormone therapy. They're like important salt for the body which is deficient in people who have got thyroid problem. Hence thuroid medicines should be taken unless your doctor advises you to stop it.
