Since brandy is not a medicine, it cannot be advised as a good solution for diabetes. It is more of a personal choice . So you can take it if you wish to, but the general rule is to maintain discipline ( also regarding overall lifestyle ) in daily routine. A healthy lifestyle with everyday session of Yoga can be the best option to bounce back to normal health and keep diabetes in good control and avoid all the complications in future.

Addison's Disease - 10 Facts You Must Know!

Addison's Disease - 10 Facts You Must Know!

Addison’s disease is considered to be a life threatening and serious illness. When one suffers from this disease, the amount of hormones like Aldosterone and Cortisol reduces rapidly due to the poor functioning of the Adrenal glands. The hormones that the Adrenal glands produce are necessary for the body to function normally. To better understand what Addison’s disease is all about, below are some basic facts.

  1. Fact 1: Addison’s disease is often confused or linked with adrenal insufficiency. However, Addison’s disease is more of an autoimmune disorder that later leads to adrenal insufficiency, which is a hormone-related imbalance.
  2. Fact 2: Addison’s disease can happen to anyone regardless of their gender or age. However, genetics may also have a role to play here, as those who have someone affected with Addison’s in the family, face greater risks.
  3. Fact 3: While for someone it may take years for totally disrupting the hormone production, for some it may grow worse very quickly. Though it is rare, it is possible.
  4. Fact 4: The symptoms of Addison’s disease often get unnoticed or misinterpreted, as the disease is very uncommon. This is a rare disease that occurs in one in a million.
  5. Fact 5: When suspected of having Addison’s disease, the screening process doesn’t take much time. Generally, a normal blood test showing the amounts of ACTH and cortisol hormone will confirm the diagnosis.
  6. Fact 6: Some very common symptoms of this disease are mild to severe pain in the bones and in the abdomen, weight loss, nausea, forgetfulness, low blood pressure and lack of energy. It is these common symptoms that can point to numerous other conditions that make its diagnosis a tricky one.
  7. Fact-7: Sometimes, Addison's disease may cause the skin tone to become darker due to the hormonal changes. It is probably the only disease that can cause such darkening or skin discolorations of the otherwise normal skin.
  8. Fact 8: People who have Addison’s disease generally become dependent on the daily intake of cortisol medications or steroids. Without Cortisol, the stress hormone, the body may go into serious adrenal crisis.
  9. Fact 9: When overlooked for a long time or not provided with the treatment and medication when needed, Addison's disease may lead to sudden organ failure. Therefore, understanding the symptoms and opting for a blood test is essential if this disease is suspected.
  10. Fact 10: Lastly, Addison's disease can be easily cured and treated by introducing a few serious lifestyle changes and hormonal therapies. Sometimes when oral hormone supplements fail to get properly absorbed, injecting the supplements becomes necessary.

Studies have shown that around 140 people approximately suffers from Addison's disease out of every million. Therefore, knowing the above-mentioned facts becomes necessary for have a clear understanding of the disease which may help in dealing with it in the best way possible. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an Endocrinologist.

Post lunch of 200 is a little high. Cut down alcohol intake to once a month and stick to one peg. Continue with your exercise. Check your hba1c. If that is high you will need small doses of medication.

Mr. Lybrate-user, tagara, is supposed to be helping in calming down the mind and also inducing sleep. It seems to be fairly safe, from various reports that are published. But my advise is better not to go in for any medication for sleep induction. If one exercises regularly for over 1 hour a day, maintains blood glucose levels well with in normal limits, practices pranayam and simple relaxation techniques, then there is no need for such medications. Thanks.

Beer has a lot of sugar, but if your sugar is under control and you can't quit then have it once in 15 days. But then decrease other sugar containing products to compensate.

For diabetes patient which vegetables, fruits, nuts & cereals are good for eating to maintain blood sugar levels.
Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. A diabetic patient can eat almost all fruits and vegetables. However, banana, mango, grapes and chikkoo have to be restricted. All green leafy vegetables are good. Salads of onion, capsicum, cabbage, cauliflower, cucumber, tomato are excellent. Fruits like papaya, pomegranate, water melon, apple, orange, sweet lime, pear, guava, are good. Nuts like ground nuts, almonds, walnuts are good. Cashews in a very small number. Potato and sweet potato in a restricted quantity as those contain a lot of starch. However, to effectively control blood glucose levels appropriate medication is a must. Thanks.

For diabetes follow a diet low in carbohydrate, low in salt, low in fat and high in fibre. Avoid bakery products. Avoid too much rice and potato. Avoid fried stuff. Avoid chocolate, cakes, ice cream, soft drinks and fruit juices. Eat lots of vegetables. Walk for at least 30 minutes a day for 5 days in a week. Medicine and insulin will work better if you follow diet and exercise. Get your S creatinine level done. As medicine will depend upon your creatinine report.

The difficult part which I see in sorting out your problem is not the diet chart or highly uncontrolled sugars - but the fact that the concerns are yours and not that of your father's! You are disturbed because your father is having such a high sugar and is having such a undisciplined lifestyle but believe me, you will never be able to bring a change in any of these if you are unable to bring a change in the attitude of your father. Firstly he has to realise what high sugars can do to his body. Then he has to accept that he is not immune to such complications and he can also develop such effects on his body as well. And lastly, he has make suitable changes in his routine and diet. By merely handing him over a diet chart- you will achieve nothing. Involve your other family members as well. First change his thoughts then his attitude and the his behaviour!

Why Homeopathy Is A Safer Alternative For Infertility?

MD. CH
Homeopath, Agartala
Why Homeopathy Is A Safer Alternative For Infertility?

Starting a family and being people who you can completely rely on is something that may be a dream that most people nurture and work towards. In the Indian culture, it is seen that children are supposed to serve as the backbone for the parents in their old age and when a couple is able to bear children, they may be able to lead more satisfied lives than at any other point in time. While most couples are blessed with happy families, there are a lot of those couples who may have to rely on medicines and treatments to be able to conceive a child.

With the changing lifestyle and the increasing amount of stress, a lot of couples are not able to conceive naturally. This is when they turn to medical help from professionals who may be able to suggest treatments and counselling. Even though the medications and treatments are sought very popularly, it is also a fact that couples have to go through painful procedures and unfruitful trials before they are able to get positive results, if at all that is possible. Not to mention the expensive treatment costs and the costly medicines that they have to invest in, apart from the mental and emotional trauma that is accompanied with it.

A safer alternative:
One of the safest alternatives to conventional medicine and treatments is to opt for homeopathy. This is a style of treatment that works on the body using natural means such as plants extracts and other natural derivatives, in combination with medicinal properties in healthy portions. With the use of such treatments and medicines, it may be possible for aspirant couples to be able to work on their body systems to make them healthier and more responsive to conceiving a child.

Some of the most important advantages of homeopathic treatment for infertility:

  1. The medicines make sure that they do not put the others aspects of health at jeopardy for the users of homeopathic medicines which means that the medicines do not have highly destructive side effects.
  2. The lack of side effects in the homeopathic medicines for infertility ensure that the couples remain mentally and emotionally strong enough to stick to the resolve of getting treated and that is something that may be helpful in the success of the treatment.
  3. Since the medicines are all organic, most of them are not as expensive as the conventional medicines.
  4. Choosing a safe stream of medication such as homeopathy may also help in ensuring that when the child is conceived, it does not get affected by the harmful medicines that may be administered to the couple.

When the future of your family and health is at stake, it is important that you take well thought out and wise decisions about what kind of treatments you should undergo. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Homeopath.

lybrate-userji, Thanks for the query. Looking at your weight and height yiur BMI is 39.22 kgs, showing almost grade 3 obesity. It is better for you to get your thyroid assay done. Because you may be already having hypothyroidism. Your ideal body weight should be 52 kgs as against you are 91 kgs. Hypothyroidism causes weight gain as one of the main symptoms. Plus also causes menstrual irregularity. So please check your thyroid hormmonal values and come back. Thanks.
