Please proceed with your query
Is this XXXXXXX?
I am 35 and do not have any health issue as of now. however my mother is a high diabetic and also have asthama.
I am sorry on that
i regularly check for sugar. What precaution do you suggest me to take from now
Surely I will suggest you on this
May I know your height and weight?
Due to high work pressure and i dont get time to work out though i have all the intension to do that
i am 63 kg with a height of 5.2"
You seem to have a normal weight for your height and age
May I know your hip circumference?
I have a daughter of 8 years. my only exercise is playing with her. i play badminton, i do cycling and also learning XXXXXXX natyam from last 1 1/2 years.
Do you know your waist size in inches?
That is really a nice thing to do
So, you are doing quite a bit of physical activity
Hip may be 35 and waist is about 31 cm
It seems to be quite normal
thats so nice to know.
You just have to follow some simple suggestions
Please continue the same amount of physical activity that you do
please tell me something which i dont have to do everyday
May be you can go brisk walking everyday for 40 min along with all these physical activities that you mentioned
I am sorry, but it will be very good if you do brisk walking everyday
You are doing good by playing badminton
i used to do a lot of walking. but stopped it for last 6 months.
cycling is also very good
You may restart it then
my physical activities are not regular. they may be twice or thrice a week
As compared to the general population I feel that you are more active
dance is just once a week
You are definitely doing good on your physical exertion, twice to thrice is good
That is fine
so, please continue the same
May be adding the walking will help
Also, maintain a good diet
Do not eat food XXXXXXX in starch and carbohydrates like rice, potato
Tubers and roots
You may eat pulses, sprouts, vegetables and fruits
Rice is just about 3/4 times a week
You may need to get your sugar levels done once in a year
That is good
i have started eating fruits offlate at least one fruit a day.
That is a good habit
Basically, you are doing good
As stress is also a risk factor for Diabetes
Just continue your routine and I think you will do great in future too
how can I help you today ?
i have a 7 year old daughter who keeps complaining about stomach ache frequently
How has her weight been ? Has it decreased over time ? or is it stable ?
Does the pain come up, only after meals ?
i also boil ajwain, mustard, coriandar seed in one glass water and give her. she feels much better after that
she is a health child. her weight is about 26 kg
also very active
Does the pain come up, only after meals ?
no fix time for the pain. some times before mean or sometime while eating or even after that
no other issue. some she feels like vomiting. but mostly doesnt
most likely, she may be having issues due to acidity, or indigestion
1 tab after meals
Her weight has been stable or has increased a bit but not decreased
she should increased her water intake
i assume that more often it is gastreo
give her 1 glass of water, to drink, before meals
and then ask her to have her meals
reduce the spice content of the food
sure i will ask her to have water and also give her the tablet.
and avoid too oily foods, junk foods, etc
she eats all that we eat. We do not intake a lot of spice in food and use very minimal oil
increase the vegetable content , like carrots, XXXXXXX veg, , apples,
avoid chips, specially potatoes
she loves all variety of fruits and doesnt eat too much of junk
that is good
try the above means , for some time
that for all you all your suggestions. i will follow them and observe her state for few days.
if it does not help, she may need a Precription medication, to reduce her acid secretion
Thanks for your suggestions doctor.
or medications to reduce the intestinal contractions,
You are very welcome
I will try the method for 10 days or so and in case she still complaints, i will get her checked for acid etc.
sure, that will be fine
Is there anything else u want help with ?
Great then. Thanks for your help. it was very useful
take care and have a good evening
