I am recently diagnosed sugar and using meteor in 1g daily one. I would like use IME-9. Kindly suggest dosage.
I would advice you to continue with meteor. Metformin is the first drug of choice in any new diabetic. It has many advantages. It also reduces insulin resistance and provides slowing of disease progression.

Madam, I am a vegetarian, nonalcoholic, but since 2009 a diabetic as per doctor advise, I have been taking glimisave 1mg since 2009 till last 3 months months back, and during my sickness checkup with manipal hospital, I was asked to take M1 instead of img glimisave by Dr. Pankaj. Which I am taking regularly once a day in the morning one hour before bf/lunch - I take lunch in the morning as is my habit since birth. I am 57 now. Can you guide me if I can go into ayurveda products for control, elimination of diabetics now, which I am to believe is more better than alopathic intake.

Dear lybrate user, you should immediately stop the medication for blood pressure. Regarding your problem of diabetes I fear that you may have become insulin dependant diabetic patient. In that case you should go for insulin injection. However, you could try homoeopathic uranium nit q, 30 drops, thrice daily, after meals, in a cup of water for one month. Check your blood sugar level after one month of medication. If you do not observe any decrease in your blood sugar level then you should go for insulin injection.

First of all, there is nothing to be scared of insulin. It is very safe and definitely not addictive. The diabetes can be managed with different medicines depending upon the doses you are taking now.

Mr. Lybrate-useryou have not given the status of the sugar levels and whether taking insulin or not. Leg pains maybe due to diabetic neuropathy and fever due to some infection. Consult a physician and do fasting, postprandial sugar levels and hba1c. Modify the drugs according to report and proper treatment for fever and infection. Contact if need further assistance.

Homeopath,
Sir very good morning sir my father have sugar so please Tell me what to eating so please Tell me sir.
Dear lybrate user, one of the major nutritional substance required for human body is carbohydrate. We take carbohydrate in the form of rice, wheat, sugar etc. The complex molecules of carbohydrate are broken down into simple glucose molecules during digestion & released in the blood stream to be absorbed by the muscle cells. Insulin hormone plays a vital role in the absorption of the glucose molecules by the muscle cells. In abnormal conditions, either due to less production of insulin or due to resistance to insulin, the process of absorption of glucose by the muscles comes to a stand still. The glucose molecules remains in the blood stream which results in the increase in the blood sugar level. This abnormal condition is clinically known as diabetes mellitus. Once a patient is diagnosed with diabetes he has to take regular medicine to keep his blood sugar level within normal limits. Take homoeopathic mother tincture gymnemna sylvestra q, 30 drops, thrice daily, after meals, in a cup of water. Also you need to walk at least 1 hour daily without any interval. Also you need to take a low carbohydrate rich diet.

You need to give him a balanced and easily digestible diet to support the action of medicines. His diet is not balanced that's why his body constituents are breaking down causing rise in blood sugar. Consult with a Dietician to know what to eat, how, when and how much.

How Diabetes Affects Kidneys: Diabetic Nephropathy Dialysis

How Diabetes Affects Kidneys: Diabetic Nephropathy Dialysis

Each tiny action we commit involves the risk of a condition, disease or disorder. For instance, sneezing a bit too hard can rupture an eye vessel, or having your face right up against the wind in a moving bus can expose you to germs. Diabetes is as prevalent as common cold in every household and there is no end to the list of causes that can make you suffer from it. While regular check-ups, medications, insulin shots can help you cope, there are certain measures that if followed, can enable you to avoid the risk of secondary yet fatal diseases. Diabetic nephropathy is one such condition.

When Kidney is affected to the extent that it cannot perform its functions(like excretion of wastes in urine, filtering blood from waste, maintaining electrolyte balance,etc.) properly, it is called as Nephropathy. The reason behind kidney damage could be many, but if diabetes is the prime cause, it is known as diabetic nephropathy in medical terms.

A few features of this disorder are as follows:

  1. The kidneys comprise of several small blood vessels, which perform the function of sifting waste from your blood. Diabetes at an advanced stage can impede smooth functioning of these vessels. As a result, the kidneys malfunction or a person faces kidney failure.
  2. Nephropathy brings along some other health issues as well. A person's blood pressure may increase as a result, thus making him or her prone to heart attacks and strokes. Sharp rise in cholesterol and triglyceride levels has also been noticed.
  3. A doctor will check for the presence of a protein called albumin in the patient's urine to know if you suffer from nephropathy or not. Other tests to determine the functioning of kidneys are - S.Creatinine, eGFR, Albumin/Creatinine Ratio (ACR), 24 Hour Urine Protein, Renal Function Tests, etc. A diabetic person should therefore go in for yearly tests.

In a given situation such as this, dialysis or kidney transplant comes to your aid. Both are done when kidney functions are irreversibly damaged. Dialysis can be of two kinds; Hemodialysis or Peritoneal dialysis. Dialysis (also called as Renal Replacement Therapy) remedies kidney damage and kidney failure by using a machine to extract salts, wastes and other fluids in excess from the blood to let your blood have a healthy composition. Dialysis should only be done under the supervision of an experienced nephrologist for best results.
