Now a days, there is no age limit to get diabetes. Usually, it is assumed that the people in our country are affected from 25 years. Always we should keep our lifestyle good. The food we eat should be nutritious and the place where we eat should be hygienic. Always, we should be physically active and at least we have to do meditation for at least 15 to 20 minutes in a day to relax our body and mind.

Mr. lybrate-user, I too have heard and seen the TV advertisement on IME - 9. That can probably be taken as an additional supportive treatment than only drug. I do not think it causes hypoglycemia. One of the patient had written here on this site that he had stopped all modern drugs on the advise of an ayurvedic doctor and was taking only IME - 9 and after 20 days his blood glucose shot up to fasting around 350 and PP 450 mg plus. So I really do not know whether there is any real benefit. Thanks.

I am 64 yrs old. I taking metformin 500 twice daily since the last nearly two years. Is there any side effects for using it continuously. My sugar level is 113 before and 180 after. Please advise.

Let us keep aside the side effects of metformin for time being. While taking this medicine the sugar level r not still under control and this can prove fatal for your body. So consult your physician and ask him to give some aggressive medicine o that your sugar level fasting is below 110 and pp is below 140, otherwise it can cause some serious damage.

Diabetes is a vast subject and normally one diabetic differs from another. The best thing about diabetes is unlike other ailments this if taken care off can be controlled effectively. Diabetes is a problem which requires lot of self-control. Certain foods and lifestyle changes can show long term results on your health. Depending on the type of diabetes you have, your food habits, age and body type your treatment, insulin counts and monitoring should be scheduled. I can help you with carbohydrate counting to correct insulin techniques and monitoring your sugar levels whatever the need be. Diabetics require personalized care when it's about the diet-plans and activities that are needed to be done. A professional advice in this regard is a must in order to manage diabetes effectively. I hold expertise with diabetics as I am a certified diabetes educator apart from being a consultant dietitian. You can consult me privately online for any advice related to diabetes.

Trigger finger means locked movement for all time and surgery must but your stiffness is only in morning time so not trigger finger. Do wax therapy and ultrasonic therapy for 15 days firstly five days avoid movement then start finger movement and avoid guitar and keyboard for few days avoid home remedy.

It depends on sugar levels and type of diabetes. Exogenous insulin at this age is only required if you are detected lada. Active infection, surgery, very high blood sugars with ketone in urine. Etc. In other normal cases of type 2 diabetes oral medication is sufficient to control sugars.
