Mr. Lybrate-user, measles is a self limiting disease. Total duration of the disease could be about a week. Pox scars take a little longer o disappear. Spreads through as coughing and sneezing as a droplet. There is no treatment except controlling fever through antipyretic drugs, giving oral rehydration solution to prevent dehydration. So you may give this kind of treatment, which will help in relieving all the symptoms. Vomiting can be controlled by using small amounts of ors solution orally or if need be anti emetic drus can be used. Thanks for the question.

How to reduce the level of thyroid I am 30 yes and suffering from hypo thyroid from last 6 years and I am taking thyronorm 150mcg?

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Sameenaji, Taking Thyroxine tablets in the recommended dosage is only method of controlling hypothyroidism. You should check TSH levels periodically (once in 6 months) to see if the dosage of thyroxine tablet is adequate or needs any change. Plus you should avoid soya beans, soya containing products, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, radish, mustard, peanuts and coffee.\Consume more of green leafy vegetables, salads and fruits. Exercise daily for at least 1 hour a day to maintain weight.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. IA person with diabetes if takes steroids including the ones taken for weight gain, then blood glucose is likely o be affected. To build muscles nutritious food, with adequate proteins and good exercise are more important. Taking androgenic steroids is definitely not good. Thanks.

Mr. Lybrate-user, t1 diabetes has to be treated by insulin injections only. There is no other alternative, insulin injections have to be taken for diabetes control as well as for survival. Along with that you have to take a restricted diet, so that it provides just exact calories, exercise daily for one hour for better glucose utilisation and reducing insulin resistance. T1 diabetes occurs due to destruction of beta cells of islets of langerhans (insulin secreting cells). This is an autoimmune disease.

Mr. Lybrate-user, there are many people with high uric acid, but only a few develop joint related problems. Not that every person with high uric acid has gouty arthritis. So you need not worry. You can still avoid foods which have high purines like: certain fishes, sardines, trout, herring, shell fish, salmon, scallop, mushrooms, mussels. Plus organ meats, red meat in general, alcohol, high sugarated drinks, colas, fructose corn syrup containing products. Can consume milk products, green leafy vegetables, salads, whole grain products, legumes etc.

I have diabetes type 2. I have chest pain sometimes. My cardiologist says it's due to stress. He says I have anxiety as well. Earlier he had prescribed Fluanxol for me. Now he gave Rexipra Fx. But after taking it I experienced that my brain has become total calm n not alert as it used to be before. So I have stopped taking Rexipra Fx and have continued with Fluanxol. Hope this is right. Also please tell me is Fluanxol useful on stress? Thank you very much.

Yes fluonxol is anti anxiety drug but even it is not prefferred much for long term therapy. Rexipra is also not advisable for long term therapy. Imo you should try other stress minimizing therapies like yoga, meditation etc for long term.

Causes and Treatment of Gestational Diabetes

MS - Obstetrics and Gynaecology, MBBS
Gynaecologist, Chennai
Causes and Treatment of Gestational Diabetes

Gestational diabetes is a form of diabetes where the blood sugar levels of the body increase during pregnancy. When you are expecting, your body is more repellent to insulin so that a larger amount of glucose is manufactured for the baby’s nourishment. However, this excess blood glucose can build up within the body which causes gestational diabetes. This can lead to health problems for both the mother and the baby. At the end of the gestational period i.e. once the baby is delivered, blood sugar reduces to normal.

When are you at a risk for gestational diabetes?

  1. Gestational diabetes can also be hereditary. If a family member or a relative has diabetes, you are more likely to develop gestational diabetes.

  2. If you are overweight, you are more susceptible to developing gestational diabetes.

What causes gestational diabetes?

During pregnancy, the placenta connects your baby to the blood supply. This produces other hormones which reduce the levels of insulin. This increases the level of blood sugar in your blood. As your baby develops, your body manufactures more of such hormones which block your insulin levels leading to gestational diabetes. This usually occurs from the 20th week of your pregnancy.

Complications:

  1. Increase in Birth Weight – Extra glucose crosses through the placenta which instigates the baby’s pancreas to manufacture more insulin. This can make your baby very large. Sometimes, it becomes difficult for the baby to pass through the birth canal during childbirth as a result.

  2. Premature Birth and Respiratory Diseases – High blood sugar may increase the risk of an early labor. It may make the baby due before the 37th week of pregnancy. This also makes the baby more susceptible to respiratory disorders.

  3. High Blood Pressure – Gestational diabetes also raises your risks for high blood pressure. This can be fatal for you as well as your baby’s health.

Treatment:

  1. Follow a healthy eating schedule. Limit the amount of carbohydrates and ensure you have a healthy and balanced meal.

  2. Do light exercises regularly during pregnancy. This helps you to control your blood sugar level. Physical activities which require low levels of energy utilization such as swimming and walking will control your blood sugar level without exerting you too much.

  3. Taking insulin shots and medicine for diabetes will also control your blood sugar levels if you have a pre-existing condition.

Taking medicines is not enough. Is your diabetes (blood sugar) in control? what is your hba1c level? localized itching is often caused by uncontrolled diabetes. It can be caused by a yeast (fungal) infection, dry skin, or poor circulation. When poor circulation is the cause of itching, the itchiest areas may be the lower parts of the legs. You may be able to treat itching yourself. First, control your blood sugar levels. Second, limit your showers or baths to no more than 10 minutes, pat dry, and moisturize while your skin is still damp.

Ayurvedic Medications For Diabetes

Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)

Ayurvedic Medications For Diabetes

Diabetes or madhumeha, is a serious disease that affects many people worldwide today. Diabetes, which is referred to as maha-roga is the excess of glucose in blood. As a result, you cannot consume sweetened food, get excess urges to drink water or urinate. However, Ayurveda has the most effective solutions to control diabetes naturally.

Read on to know what best natural medications are there to cure diabetes.

  1. Gymnema Sylvestre or Gurmar: It is one of the most effective remedies to diabetes. It is a hypoglycemic component, which makes it ideal for treating diabetes. It helps in reducing dependency on insulin by regeneration of residual beta cells of the pancreas.
  2. Coccinia indica: It is another herb, which regulates diabetes very well. This plant contains components, which after consumption of carbohydrates, prevent the sudden increase in blood glucose level. It can also prevent any adverse effect on other organs of the body due to diabetes. It is found to reduce oxidative stress amongst diabetes patients by surging the vitamin C levels in the plasma, and also prevents the fluctuations in fatty acid levels amongst diabetes patients.
  3. Azadirachta Indica or neem: It is one of the most common household antiseptics and a wonderful cure for diabetes. It enables high glucose tolerance, and also prevents diabetic neuropathy, which may cause severe fatalities.
  4. Morus Indica or Mulberry: It is a food that is experimentally proven to reduce diabetes. Daily consumption of mulberry leaves for 15 days at a stretch are beneficial in limiting approximately 38% of diabetes cases among its consumers. It also protects you against oxidative stress by building the antioxidant defense system of the body and is also known to correct any lipid profile abnormality. It also delays the possibility of the appearance of cataract as a result of diabetes.
  5. Momordica Charantia or bitter gourd: It is another common remedy found in most Indian households. Even though it is extremely bitter in taste, its medicinal properties are exemplary, and are extensively used in Ayurvedic medicines. It also targets the beta cells of the pancreas to help boost up insulin secretion by increasing their number. Bitter gourd also helps to release more insulin by way of regeneration of the pancreas.
  6. Eugenia Jambolana or Indian Jamun: This Ayurvedic cure reduces blood sugar level and increases the release of insulin. The extract of "jamun" seeds help in healing of wounds quicker, usually impaired by diabetes.
  7. Trigonella Foenum or methi: It is another household ingredient that serves medicinal purposes in case of diabetes patients. Even 1gm of fenugreek seeds could reduce diabetes sharply in a short span of 2 months. This benefit is because of the presence of diosgenin, a compound with hypoglycemic properties.

However, all these medicinal plants should be consumed under proper guidance from professional practitioners only.

Mr. Lybrate-user, if he has diabetes mellitus, then treatment has to be taken daily for life time. Hum har rose khate hai, uska glucose banata hai, us glucose ko khoon se nikal kar shareer ke alag bahgome bhejane ke liye insulin ki jaroorat hoti hai. Diabetes ki dava yeh insulin tayar karane ke liye madad karati hai, ya insulin hi diya jata hai. Jab khana rose chahiye to dava ki bhi jaroorat hai. Ye silsila jeevan bhar chalata rahega. Dava na lenese taklif badhegi, dava se nahi.
