My sugar levels are changing drastically. Can you please suggest any permanent solution without taking medicines.

Mr. Lybrate-user, for hyperglycemia control only remedy is taking appropriate medication, there is no other option. Without taking oral anti diabetic drugs or insulin injections it not possible to control raised blood sugar. In addition you have grade 1 obesity, which also contributes to increasing blood sugar. Weight reduction, restricted diet and exercise with anti diabetes drugs is the way to go about.

My father have a sugar problem and his age is 54 year. What can I do sir for my father.?

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Mr. Lybrate-user, if diabetes is present then appropriate treatment has to be given for life time. Plus his eyes should be checked to see if there is any retinal involvement. This is a test or eye examination done by specialist by dilating the pupil. You have to get him proper treatment and see that he follows it. Plus he should exercise daily for at least 1 hour and take a restricted diet. Should avoid sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries and sweetened aerated drinks. Should maintain fasting around 100 ms, pp 150 to 160 mg and hba1c% <7. Thanks for the question.

I m suffering from diabetes so I want a medicine which gives me rest and my life is going well.

Mr Rahul, May I know the age, as mentioned is 6 years. If you are having diabetes, then controlling blood sugar levels to near normal levels is is very important, from the point of view of reducing long term complications. There are many medicines which are useful in controlling sugar levels, but can only be recommended when all the information is made available like fasting, PP sugar levels (current), HbA1c%, dietary pattern and extent of daily exercise. It will be better if you come in a private conversation then I will be able to guide specifically. In this communication we are supposed to give only general guidelines and no prescriptions. The guidelines like avoid sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods and pastries. Refrain from alcohol and smoking. Consume more of green leafy vegetables and salads. Exercise daily for at least 1 hour. etc.

Dear lybrate user! do not worry about the knee problem, first of all reduce your weight, and do quadriceps exercise, and take more calcium supplements like milk. And for diabetes reduce your food intake, walk for 3o minutes daily take homoeopathy medicine

I am a 47 years old female. I am a Type I diabetic since last 20 years. I am taking insulin and sugar is under control. Lately I am developing cramps in my hand finger tips which aggravated in sleeping position. What is this problem called and how can this be treated.

Basic Life Support (B.L.S), Doctor of Medicine
General Physician,
Can't say for sure but could be due to neuropathy due to diabetes or any other cause. Kindly elaborate on your symptoms. Include vit b12 rich food in your diet. (like meat fish) or take over the counter available suppliments. Include exercise in your routine. Focusing on your back also. But never involving too much bending and lifting weights together. These are few things coming to my mind with your limited history. You can get back to me if you want more information on d same.

My wife aged 47 is hypothyroidism &amp; is under medication thyronorm 75mg since last 7 years &amp; she has put in lot of weight. Please suggest home/biochemic medicine.

MBBS, DNB (General Medicine)
Endocrinologist, Delhi
The idea here is to ascertain whether your wife has benefitted by the 75 mcg dose or not. This can only be established by testing atleast at 6weeks interval initially to know whether thyroid is under control or not. Tsh test is recommended before further advise.

Hi I have just got my blood test done my uric acid is high. Please tell me how to control it and what are the dos and do nots and what to eat and what not. Please help.

PDDM, MHA, MBBS
General Physician, Nashik
The first thing you should do is to eat foods that are high in fiber, This is because fiber rich foods absorb uric acid from the blood. Your kidneys then 'throw' out the excess uric acid. Try to eat Oatmeal, Spinach, cauliflowers and Isabgol in milk if possible.  Please use olive oil to cook your food. kindly avoid vegetable oils because they become unhealthy when heated twice. This leads to rancid fat in the body. These destroy vitamin E, that in turn controls uric acid levels. Olive oil also curbs uric acid by itself.  Vitamin C chewable tablets taken 500mg daily lower uric acid levels within 4 to 8 weeks.  Try to stop intake of sweets, cakes and pastries. Saturated fats are bad for you.  Many fruits have got potent anti-oxidant properties, like celery seeds, grapes and tomatoes, and these prevent harmful toxins from attacking your organs - releasing uric acid.

I like sweets wery much Please tell me How to maintain sugar level from the younger age?

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Mr. Lybrate-user, there is nothing wrong in liking sweets and even eating them. Diabetes does not coe because of eating sweets, but due to deficiency of insulin or resistance to its action or both, particularly in t2 diabetes. T1 diabetes occurs in those whose pancreas (beta cells) do not produce any insulin. One needs to be more careful if parent have t2 dm, as chances of getting diabetes increase very much. Few things need to be done to prevent getting t2 dm like: regular exercise daily for more than 1 hour, maintaining normal weight, consuming healthy diet, more green leafy vegetables, salads and fruits. Avoiding deep fried foods, junk foods, aerated sweetened drinks, fructose corn syrup containing products, highly processed foods, high fat milk products. Also refraining from alcohol and smoking. Basically maintaing a healthy lifestyle is necessary.

I am 61 diabetic for the last 27 years and on insulin for the last15 years. I have a problem in my right foot. Doctor called it charkoot foot. Is there any treatment for it?

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Most foot problems that people with diabetes face arise from two serious complications of the disease: nerve damage and poor circulation. One of the more critical foot problems these complications can cause is charcot arthropathy, which can deform the shape of the foot and lead to disability. 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.

How should Fasting Blood Sugar (FBS) and 2 hour Post Prandial Blood Sugar (PPBS) testing be done properly? Not many are aware of this. Details:
The term Fasting means "no caloric intake for atleast 8-10 hours. This means you should not take any food or drink that contains calories during the 8-10 hours before testing. Thus, plain water is the only thing that can be taken. Usually, FBS is done early in the morning. If you take medicines then, continue taking them as usual. If you exercise daily, do so. But do NOT exercise only for that day alone. It can be dangerous and also will give a wrong report.
Once your blood sample is taken, have your regular breakfast. Note the time of starting breakfast. PPBS is to be taken exactly 2 hours from this time.And NOT 2 hours after finishing.
Some people believe that the food you had for dinner the previous night will affect your FBS the next morning. This is wrong.
