Will eating dates on regular basis not increase blood sugar level in diabetic patients?

Endocrinologist,
Will eating dates on regular basis not increase blood sugar level in diabetic patients?
lybrate-user, Yes eating dates repeatedly in substantial number will definitely increase blood glucose level. So one can consume just 2 or 3 dates a day, that too when blood glucose is well in check. Thanks.

HI Gas normally enters your digestive tract when you swallow air and when bacteria in your large intestine break down certain undigested foods. Everyone swallows a small amount of air when eating and drinking. You swallow more air when you, chew gum, drink carbonated, or fizzy, drinks, eat or drink too fast, smoke,suck on hard candy, wear loose-fitting dentures. Some conditions can cause you to have more gas than usual or have more symptoms when you have gas. These conditions include the following: Small intestinal bacterial overgrowth, Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) steps to swallow less air. For example, eat more slowly, avoid gum and hard candies, and don’t use a straw. If you smoke, quit smoking. You may try avoiding or limiting, carbonated, or fizzy, drinks, fried and high-fat foods, high-fiber foods for a few weeks and then slowly increasing your daily fiber intake. For any further query and treatment you can contact me through Lybrate.

Sir my friend has a 3rd degree piles. He want to get rid of it. Which is the best way to do it? And if so where in bangalore. He s very scared of operations. please help. Thank you.

BHMS
Homeopath, Faridabad
Hi. Tell him to take homoepathic medication - Aesculus Hipp. 30/ thrice daily and apply Topi-Aesculus cream over the piles for few months. If it’s better, then continue or else will have to go for other options such as rubber band ligation, surgery, cauterization, etc. Management: Soak regularly in a warm bath or sitz bath. Soak your anal area in plain warm water 10 to 15 minutes two to three times a day. A sitz bath fits over the toilet. You can get one at most drugstores. If you are constipated, use a laxative. Keep the anal area clean. Bathe (preferably) or shower daily to cleanse the skin around your anus gently with warm water. Soap isn't necessary and may aggravate the problem. Avoid alcohol based or perfumed wipes. Gently dry the area with a hair dryer after bathing. Don't use dry toilet paper. To help keep the anal area clean after a bowel movement, use moist towelettes or wet toilet paper that doesn't contain perfume or alcohol. Apply cold. Apply ice packs or cold compresses on your anus to relieve swelling. Walking is the best exercise for your whole body as well as the piles as it increases the blood circulation to every part of body. Avoid sitting for long hours together. Include more fibrous food in your diet like fruits, green vegetables, salads. YOGA FOR PILES Pavanmuktasana: Keep your hands by the side of your body in a supine position. While inhaling, raise both your legs to 90 and bend them at the knees. Make a finger-lock with both your hands around them, a little below the knees. While exhaling, bring your thighs close to the chest by contracting the abdominal muscles. Maintain this posture for a few seconds. Then return to the original posture in the reverse order as Ardha Pavan Muktasana. Repeat the asana three to four times. Vajrasana: Keep the soles of the feet on both sides of the anus, i.e., place the thighs on the legs one over the other and the soles on the buttocks. The calves must touch the thighs. The part from the toe to the knee should touch the ground. The whole burden of the body is put on the knees and ankles. The beginning of practice you may feel a slight pain in the knee and ankle-joints but it passes off very quickly. After fixing the feet and the knees, put both the hands straight on the knees. Keep the knees quite close. Sit like this keeping the trunk, neck and head in one straight line. Report me back.

I have cold and cough problem from 3 months and I am taking medicine but no relief. What should i do? Please advise.

I have cold and cough problem from 3 months and I am taking medicine but no relief. What should i do? Please advise.
Firstly there's no lifelong cure for the common cold. Antibiotics are only effective against infections of throat and are of no use against cold viruses. Over-the-counter (otc) cold preparations won't cure a common cold or make it go away any sooner, and most have side effects. A saltwater gargle 1 teaspoon salt and 1/2tsp turmeric dissolved in a glass of warm water can temporarily relieve a sore or scratchy throat. To help relieve nasal congestion, try saline (pure salt water) nasal drops. If you have a throat infection, or a viral cold then I will prescribe appropriate meds based on your detailed assessment. Do reply back for medication prescriptions. Being also a general physician and registered dietitian, I prescribe both evidence based herbal as well as allopathic medicines complementing with dietary guidelines and home remedies carefully personalized for each individual patient.

Complaints of headache, body pain, severe joint pains and painful joint movements may be symptoms of simple viral fever or Chikangunya. This requires good rest, plenty of oral liquid and pain killers like Paracetamol 50 mg 3 times a day. If no relief you should see a doctor for proper clinical examination and Diagnosis.

Since you have already consulted many specialists and found no relief, a detailed analysis of symptoms and investigations will be required. In most of such cases chronic backache is often the culprit and addiction to pain killers is the cause of gastric ulcers and erosions. Back strengthening exercises and plenty of fluids can be helpful for you. The cycle of chronic pain has to be broken witl analgesics and anti-inflammatory agents.
