Hi, in t1 diabetes, unless blood sugar is properly monitored and insulin dosage is correctly adjusted, hypoglycemic episodes can occur. You may talk to your physician and see how effectively sugar levels are maintained. This is not a situation which can be addressed by online consultation. It needs a close monitoring between you and your physician. Also you may think of using insulins like glargine or degludec which are peakless.

Hey. Well any injury in diabetics is very difficult to treat. In case of your mother, the injury on her feet should be managed by intravenous antibiotics for 7-10 days. It should be cleaned and dressed daily with antiseptic solutions. Do not wet the area. Try to keep the sugar levels well in control by taking the medicines appropriately and by maintaining diet changes.

Mr Hirdyesh, TSH 9.3 milli units is high, shows you have hypothyroidism. This needs to be treated with thyroxine tablets, dose depends on body weight and TSH levels. In addition you will have to avoid soy beans, soy containing products, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, radish, mustard, peanuts and coffee. Consume more green leafy vegetables, salads, fruits and low fat milk products. Exercise regularly to avoid weight gain

Having diabetes makes high blood pressure and other heart and circulation problems more likely, because diabetes damages arteries and makes them targets for hardening (atherosclerosis). Atherosclerosis can cause high blood pressure, which if not treated, can lead to blood vessel damage, stroke, heart failure, heart attack, or kidney failure. You can consult me in private for detailed treatment which is available in biochemic system of medicine depending upon symptomatically. Eatng lots of garlic. If you cant have it get it homeopathically allium sativum (biochemic) nat phos 30x, avoid all types of fats and red meat. Treatment is available, safe and without side effects in biochemic system of medication. Consult me in private.

As you have dust allergy most probably your irritation is also due to allergy. Anti-allergic eye drops will give you relief from itching but i suggest you consult a pulmonologist who specializes in allergic disorders and get yourself desensitized or start taking anti allergic tablets like montelukast

Can diabetes be cured? If not can it be controlled to a best possible level so as to avoid / minimize the long term complications of the disease? What are the ayurvedic remedies prescribed for the diabetes? It is said that most of the ayurvedic medicines for diabetes contain heavy metal bhasmas -oxides of lead / gold etc.& can damage the liver & kidneys if taken on long term basis-as they get deposited in the tissues. If you feel this is wrong could you give any evidence like research papers etc which say that they do not cause long term damage to the vital organs? What is the role of karela juice; neem patta juice & the methica powder in reduction of the blood sugar levels? What are their dosage & how long they should be taken to get reduction in blood sugar levels & to maintain them properly in tolerable limits. I have personally taken these products foe quite a long time & have not got any appreciable results-why? What is your opinion about BGR34-a product of CSIR & sponsored by govt of india a pure ayurvedic product in tablet form contain vijaysar; duru haridra (turmeric) & gud mar which is supposed to stimulate? Regenerate the beta cells of the pancreas.--they have not given me any results -why? Please note my fasting blood glucose levels are 140mg & post food-2hrs-about 164 to 178mg. I am a tea teetotaler; never took any alcoholic drinks, do not smoke or chew tobacco, not over weight for my height 63kgs / 168cms. Age about 62yrs. Do regular exercise; follow strict diat. Never eat sweets / rice ; active in life work about 8 hrs office work; never sleep in day time ; have about 7hrs sleep at night detected sugar about 6mths ago. I have tried vinegar (sirka) which is supposed to stimulate the pancreas for secreting insulin. None of the remedies are able to reduce my fasting blood sugar levels below 140mg. Could you suggest any ayurvedic medicines which will reduce & maintain the fasting sugar levels of about110 to 120mg.(pl note I am not taking any alopathic medicines for the diabetes) Please give your valuable suggestions & guidance. Withregards.
