Mr. Lybrate-user, your friend may be having t1 diabetes, which needs insulin injections as treatment, as in t1 dm there is no insulin produced by beta cells of pancreas. So if starts taking that plus proper diet control and some physical exercise, he should be able to improve the health. But treatment is for lifetime.

Mr. Lybrate user, yes, that advise is good to fllow, you need to practce pranayama daily twice[morning night]. There are types of pranayamas, like anuloma, & viloma. Its better to take any yoga therapist/instructor/s help,& also, you better to do few asanas, atleast practicing suryanamaskaras daily minimum 4-5 times also will give good results. Take care. Try to take water atleast 3-4 litres. Irrespective of thirst, daily. Taking 1/2litres [or 1 litre}in morning itself is good cleanser for body.

What is a best treatment for the diabetes patient for diabetes type two, insulin is a best ya other is good medicine?

What is a best treatment for the diabetes patient for diabetes type two, insulin is a best ya other is good medicine?
Mr. Lybrate-user, diabetes mellitus occurs (t2) either due to lack of insulin or resistance to its action or both. In t1 there is total absence of insulin, beta cells of islets of langerhans in pancreas do not secrete any insulin. Since main reason is insulin deficiency, best drug for treatment is insulin. However, in t2 initially metformin is used, which helps in reducing resistance to insulin action and also helps in weight reduction. Then other drugs known as secretogogues (insulin secretion stimulators) are used. If diabetes is very severe with very high blood sugar levels and hba1c% >9, then insulin is preferred. So it depends on individual case and needs of each patient. There are multiple choices now, recent addition to treatment has been sglt-2 inhibitors, which act independent of insulin.

Maybe the dose of antihypertensives needs to be increased or a different class of drugs used or added. The high uric acid levels can also be controlled with either Allopurinol, at doses which are adequate, or with newer drugs which are more effective and safer.

As you know, your diabetes is not under control and its not good for your health. Yes, its better to take insulin to control diabetes when your sugar levels are high with 2 or more oral medicines. And yes, insulin can be discontinued after diabetes is under control, but that should be supervised and decision taken by your treating doctor.

lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. With a HbA1c% of 10.1 you have an uncontrolled diabetes. This can only be controlled by specific drug treatment, diet and exercise. As regards "Coming out of diabetes" or curing it, is rather impossible. Because once diabetes sets in, it remains for lifetime. One can live a good life by controlling the blood glucose levels effectively and postponing its long term complication or may be preventing those. When a person is in pre-diabetic state (FBG 108 mg to 125 mg, PP 141 to 199 mg & HbA1c%:5.9 to 6.4), it is possible to prevent progressing to diabetes or postpone it for a considerable time by adapting a modified lifestyle like: restricted diet, avoiding sweets, deep fried foods, pastries, junk foods, bakery items and colas. Plus consuming more of green leafy vegetables, salads, and fruits. Plus exercising regularly and maintaining near normal body weight and preventing central obesity. But once diabetes develops then it impossible to revert back to normal glucose levels without treatment. So now the only option you have is maintain desired glucose levels (FBG: <100 mg, PP 150 to 160 mg & HbA1c%<6.8) so that all the long term complications of diabetes are either prevented or postponed. So if you are keen please come back in a private conversation with following details: FBG, PP glucose levels, dietary pattern, extent of daily exercise, present drugs with dosage, lipid profile details and BP readings, then I will be able to guide specifically. Or else contact in your area a good diabetologist or physician and initiate the treatment. I hope you understand the seriousness of the situation. Take care. Thanks.

Consult once again with another endocrinologist when in doubt. Even slight increase in tsh levels calls for help. If you don't have symptoms and only blood tests indicate the problem, may be the reason for your doctor's hesitation to start you on unnecessary meds. However, even if you don't have any symptoms, these levels are elevated remarkably. It indicates that the brain is working overtime to push the thyroid gland to function at its normal pace. Imagine the thyroid gland to be a child who has to study and score marks. A hypothyroid gland means the child who is slow and lazy and hence his marks are less. Now imagine the tsh to be the mother who pushes the child and constantly urges him to study, just like tsh would stimulate and urge the thyroid cells to work harder and secrete the desired levels of hormones. The disorder is confirmed when despite how much ever the tsh is high (ie. How much ever the mother pushes and stays awake), the thyroid gland is unable to do anymore and still functioning subnormally (meaning that the child couldn't be any more pushed to secure the marks). What you need to do is understood why child has started becoming dull in his performance only then can you solve this problem completely. This is exactly what homeopathic method thyroid treatment does. If meds are aimed at correcting the thyroid deficiency than merely supplementing, the problem can be fixed from the base. Give it a thought!

The doctor opined it as Subclinical Hypothyroidism (beginning) and recommended Thyroxine Supplement.(Thyronorm 25 mcg) and advised to see him after 3 months of taking medicine and repeat tests. As a precautionary measure AFTER 28 DAYS ONLY I DID a REPEAT TEST FOR TSH ONLY in the same laboratory AND SURPRISINGLY TSH WAS FOUND TO BE ONLY 0.07 (Normal Range-0.34-5.60) the Normal Range Varied in the Two Cases and the Laboratory explained A) First TSH Test Was done as per cubic E411 Method and B) Second TSH Test was done as per Access 2 Method I again went to the doctor concerned and he advised to STOP THYRONORM I am extremely worried due to the fact that normally ONY AFTER TAKING MEDICINE FOR 28 DAYS ONLY HOW THE TSH FIGURE CAME DOWN SO ABNORMALLY AND MEDICINE WAS STOPPED ,ALTHOUGH PEOPLE SAY THAT ONCE STARTED THYROID MEDICATION WILL CONTINUE WHAT PRECAUTIONARY MEASURES CAN BE TAKEN NOW TO AVOID PROBLEM. SHE HAD NO PROBLEM /SYMPTOM WHEN THE MEDICINE WAS STARTED AND NOW ALSO SHE HAS NO PROBLEM When Routine Tests were done Lipid Profile checked, ALL OK, Complete Blood Count ALL OK. ECG ,Echo Cardiogram ALL OK. Urine Routine Test ALL OK Only thing is She is prediabetes and is suffering from Chronic Urticaria (Skin Itchiness. Doctors including Skin Specialists consulted and Everybody Opined Chronic Urticaria May Not be Curable, It may Go On Its Own.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Usually in subclinical hypothyroidism no treatment is advocated, unlee there are troubling or disturbing symptoms related to hypothyroidism. So in first place there should have been no thyroxine given. Since she was given 25 mcg, the TSH has gone down below normal. So the doctor has asked you to stop it. My subscription is stop treating now, then check TSH after 8 weeks. Then inform, if the level goes above 10 mU/L, then only treatment is needed. Otherwise nothing is needed. If you have any doubts please come in a private conversation. Thanks.

This much of sugars can be controlled by 3 ways 1) life style modifications I mean she needs to do 30 min of exercise regularly like swimming, brisk walking etc this will decrease insulin resistance 2) she should eat diabetic diet 3) change of medicine I thing she should add newer drugs called gliptins to it just a single tab will take her sugars normal.

Treatment for hypothyroidism is giving thyroxine tablets. And dose are according to level of thyroid for life time. Avoid bad habits . Avoid stress. Some Relax during work. Go for walk, Take plenty of water, high-carbohydrate foods such as potatoes, rice, pasta and bread. Nutrient-rich foods that improve your health may also benefit your thyroid gland, antioxidant-rich fruits and vegetables more plenty of water: Blueberries, tomatoes, bell peppers, and other foods rich in antioxidants can improve overall health and benefit the thyroid gland. Eating foods high in B vitamins, like whole grains, may also help. flax oil, Selenium: Tiny amounts of selenium are needed for enzymes that make thyroid hormones to work properly. Eating selenium-rich foods, such as sunflower seeds or Brazil nuts, can be beneficial. Tyrosine: This amino acid is used by the thyroid gland to produce T3 and T4. Taking a supplement may help, avoid oily foods,junk foods, go for walk. Do Tests every 3 to 6 months. And consult doctor on time.

Hello lybrate-user, as you are patient of thyroid and obesity which are depends on each other vis versa. You need to reduce your weight. As per your height your weight should be in between 48 kg to 52 kg. So that your thyroid gland will work properly and there will be cure of both disorders. Start with morning brisk walk for at least 35 minutes. You can reduce your weight without surgery, without crush diet, without gym, without yoga.

Which yoga poses are completely remove diabetes and blood sugar from human body. Suggest yoga name please.
Mr. Thanks for the query. To my knowledge there is no yogasana which can "remove" or cure diabetes. Manduk asana supposed to be helpful. Diabetes is a hormone (insulin) deficiency disease, hence one has to either take insulin injections or take drugs that increase insulin secretion and also that reduce insulin resistance. Teratment is for life time. Thanks.
