Every diabetic should get heart, eyes, kidneys tested regularly. Good to know that heart tests are normal. Do not give sleeping tablets which can be addictive like alprazolam. Give her a tablet of valium 5 mg but do tell your doctor about it,

To achieve better sugar control you have to do self monitoring of blood glucose and set up a system of sending sms message to your doctor on daily basis and decide on a target fasting / pp blood sugarleve and up titrate insulin dosage every alternate day by 2 units till target level is reached. Then the same can be continued.

seeing the shape of the tablet in toilet is no indicaion that the whole tablet has come out. what happens is in the case of slow release or long acting tablets/capsules the shell is made in such a way where the medicine is released slowly at the intestines and doesnot get dissoloved in the gastric juices. that shell which comes out along with motion is some times seen as the tablet. if the drug has not gone in to your blood then there will not be any controle on the blood sugar. when you get your blood sugar tested there will be desired levels of the sugar in blood. so donot worry and continue the usage of the tablet.

Hi I am 30 year old maile and I am suffering from diabetese from 3 year, please suggest me.

PGDD, RD, Bachelor of Home Science
Dietitian/Nutritionist, Mumbai
for a diabetic it is best advised to have a diet planned as per the sugar levels, lifestyle and history. Though you can follow some guidelines - have small frequent meals. Do not fast for more than 2-3 hours. Avoid a very heavy meal at one time. Avoid fruit juices, aerated drinks or sugarcane juice, honey, jaggery or sugar. Fruits should be had as a mid meal. Avoid junk foods. Exercise and stay active. Do not attempt to try out too many remedies as you could go into hypoglycaemia. Sleep well. It's all a matter of discipline.

Madam, with random blood sugar level of 250 mg, your present treatment is definitely not adequate, you need to look at increasing the dosage or adding a newer drug. Plus consider restricted diet and regular exercise. As regards other branches of medical practices for treating a severe diabetes, there is not going to be any benefit. Those drugs can be used only once a good sugar control is achieved, justas additional supportive therapy. In the world today other than oral antidiabetic drugs and insulin there is virtually no treatment available. So please look at these facts. Further choice is yours. With regards.

Mr. Lybrate-user, there could be quite a few reasons for not getting proper blood sugar control including diet regulation, amount of exercise or no exercise and dosage adjustments in relation to food intake. One thing can be done is first try and reduce fasting blood glucose. This can be done by monitoring it daily and reaching a target level of 100 to 110 mg. The night dose of insulin glargine can be increased by 2 units every 2 to 3 days, till fasting target is reached and then maintained. Later you can target pp sugar level. This way you should be able to control sugar level better. Recently there are a few new options also made available which can be considered to reduce the blood glucose. Plus give a close look at your diet control also increase daily extent of exercise. These things will help in reaching desired goals.

Herbal tea with ginger is beneficial for thyroid functioning. In fact, beverages including coffee, tea, carbonated drinks and alcohols should be avoided by patients afflicted with thyroid disorders. In its place herbal tea may be an alternative option...Application of watercress's paste on the enlarged neck is also an effective remedy....take punarnavadi mandoor and kanchnar guggul 1-1 tab twice a day
