I am 45 year old diabetic patent I want knowledge for latest come medicine BGR 34 for me.

Mr Sushil Kumar, BGR - 34, tablets, is a combination of some herbal extracts, supposed to be working on diabetes mellitus. But the researchers themselves have said that it has not been tried in human beings, there are no clinical trials to show its benefits in controlling blood sugar in humans. According the details available, it has been tried only on rats, there too it has shown 67% efficacy, which is same as placebos. So there is no question of this drug being effective in treating diabetes in humans. Rest I leave it to your judgement.

Please tell me the symptoms of sugar. Also tell me the precautions of sugar. And medicine of sugar.

MBBS, MRCGP ( UK), Diploma in Diabetes (UK), DFSRH (UK), DRCOG (UK)

Hello Sir, By sugar, I presume you mean diabetes. Type-2 diabetes in about 50 percent of people is asymptomatic- that means they do not have any symptoms. It is found out incidentally by doing blood glucose test for some other reason. In about 50 percent, the patients have symptoms like loss of weight, increased hunger and thirst, increased urination, tiredness, skin problems etc. To prevent getting diabetes you need to consume a good healthy and well balanced diet with plenty of vegetables. Avoid/restrict processed food and food made of maida, avoid junk food and deep fried items. Restrict or avoid sweets/chocolate, cakes etc. Take at least 2 fruits everyday. Take adequate quantities of protein-dal/eggs/non-veg. Take normal quantities (at least 1/3 of your plate) of carbohydrates like rice, roti etc. Take milk, buttermilk etc. Do at least 45 min of exercise everyday-running, cycling, swimming etc Do not become overweight or obese. If you have diabetes I would suggest to see a doctor as self-medication is dangerous. I hope this helps you Thank you.

What should I eat as a good diet as I have suffered from high blood pressure and diabetes?

BHMS
Homeopath,
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 bloodstream 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. Avoid rice, sweet dishes, fruits, cold drinks, fast foods, alcoholic beverages, potato etc.

I am suffering from diabetes which medicines you like to advice for reverse diabetes ?

MBBS, Diploma in Diabetology, DDM, CCACCD

Allopathy does not have any medicines for reversal of diabetes. However, i would like to caution you against falling into any trap for ayurved "babas" who give "bhasm / powder / bitter pills" for reversal of diabetes. These contain heavy metals and steroids which destroy your kidneys and give you life-long dialysis. If you take your prescribed medicines on time. Follow a regular diet and exercise schedule. Get your blood tests done as advised. And never miss any follow-up with the doctor. Diabetes will be easily manageable :)

Obesity - Can It Lead to Diabetes?

MBBS, CCEBDM
Diabetologist, Bangalore
Obesity - Can It Lead to Diabetes?

Diabetes is a complex group of diseases with a variety of causes. People with diabetes have high blood glucose, also called high blood sugar or hyperglycemia.

Diabetes is a disorder of metabolism, the way the body uses digested food for energy. The digestive tract breaks down carbohydrates, sugars and starches found in many foods, into glucose, a form of sugar that enters the bloodstream. Diabetes develops when the body doesn't make enough insulin or is not able to use insulin effectively, or both.

The two main types of diabetes are:

Type 1 Diabetes: Type 1 diabetes typically occurs in children and young adults, though it can appear at any age. In the past, type 1 diabetes was called juvenile diabetes or insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus.

Heredity plays an important part in determining who is likely to develop type 1 diabetes. Genes are passed down from biological parent to child.

Type 2 Diabetes: Type 2 diabetes develops most often in middle-aged and older people who are also overweight or obese. The disease, once rare in youth, is becoming more common in overweight and obese children and adolescents. Type 2 diabetes is caused by a combination of factors, including insulin resistance, a condition in which the body's muscle, fat, and liver cells do not use insulin effectively.

Physical Inactivity, Obesity, and Diabetes: Physical inactivity and obesity are strongly associated with the development of type 2 diabetes. People who are genetically susceptible to type 2 diabetes are more vulnerable when these risk factors are present. About 80 percent of people with type 2 diabetes are overweight or obese.

An imbalance between caloric intake and physical activity can lead to obesity, which causes insulin resistance and is common in people with type 2 diabetes. Central obesity, in which a person has excess abdominal fat, is a major risk factor not only for insulin resistance and type 2 diabetes but also for heart and blood vessel disease, also called cardiovascular diseases (CVD). This excess belly fat produces hormones and other substances that can cause harmful, chronic effects in the body such as damage to blood vessels.

So, measuring your waist is a quick way of assessing your diabetes risk. This is a measure of abdominal obesity, which is a particularly high-risk form of obesity. Women have a higher risk of developing type 2 diabetes if their waist measures 80cm (31.5 inches) or more. Asian men with a waist size of 89cm (35 inches) or more have a higher risk, as do white or black men with a waist size of 94cm (37 inches) or more.

Simple Steps to Lower Your Risk: Making a few lifestyle changes can dramatically lower the chances of developing type 2 diabetes. The same changes can also lower the chances of developing heart disease and other life taking cancers.

  1. Control Your Weight: Being overweight increases the chances of developing type 2 diabetes seven-fold. Being obese makes you 20 to 40 times more likely to develop diabetes than someone with a healthy weight. Losing weight can help if your weight is above the healthy-weight range. Check your BMI. Losing 7 to 10 percent of your current weight can cut your chances of developing type 2 diabetes in half.
  2. Get Moving and Turn Off the Television: Inactivity promotes type 2 diabetes. Working your muscles more often and making them work harder improves their ability to use insulin and absorb glucose. This puts less stress on your insulin-making cells.
  3. Tune Up Your Diet: Four dietary changes can have a big impact on the risk of type 2 diabetes-

Choose whole grains and wholegrain products over highly processed carbohydrates.

  • Skip the sugary drinks, and choose water, coffee, or tea instead.
  • Choose good fats instead of bad fats.
  • Limit red meat and avoid processed meat; choose nuts, whole grains, poultry, or fish instead.

If you are already suffering from diabetes, then do take a walk everyday and adopt healthy eating habits. Along with that relieve your stress and take proper doses of insulin or medications as prescribed by your doctor. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor.

Check for uric acid levels. Diabetes control is governed by following the right diabetic diet. What to eat and what not to eat is important for diabetes control and diabetes cure or diabetes reversal. Few tips... - One teaspoon of methi seeds soaked overnight in 100 ml of water is very effective in controlling diabetes. - Drink tomato juice with salt and pepper every morning on an empty stomach. - Intake of 6 almonds (soaked overnight) is also helpful in keeping a check on diabetes. Natural remedies for diabetics... Tender guava leaf juice Aloe Vera Green tea Cinnamon Black jamun seed extract Methi seed powder Drumstick leaf powder Flaxseed powder Amla Neem flower tea Multi grains Wheat germ and bran Lemon grass Wheat grass Quinoa Are some of the foods which definitely control diabetes. Take personalised dietary expert advice. Thank you.

Is there any permanent solutions to thyroid problem rather than taking medicine whole life?

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Unfortunately for hypothyroidism only treatment is taking thyroxine tablets for life. This is because hypothyroidism is a condition where thyroid gland does not produce adequate amount of the hormone thyroxine. This hormone is required for maintaining normal metabolic activities in our body. Absence creates serious problems.

Hello sir I am suffering from diabetes from last few years. My age is 26. And now my diabetic level is around 180. What should I do to decrease my diabetic level. Please give me suggestions to decrease my diabetic level. It is a hereditary disease. My father and mother are also having this.

Lybrate-user it will be advisable if you can revert with the list of medicines, your last hba1c levels. You have to understand that to keep diabetes under control regular exercise, diet modification and proper medication is key to treatment. There is some element of genetic transfer of this but still with a good life style we can control this.
