How can we cure diabetes and what type of medicines should a diabetes patient use ayurvedic or which is referred by a doctor? The advertisement which had been telecasted on TV which referred medicine for diabetes. Is it really works?

If there is confirmed diabetes, the only way to treat it is to take modern medicines - anti diabetes drugs either oral or insulin injections or both depending upon the need. Other medical therapies are at the most can be used as supportive treatments. Along with proper drugs, exercise and diet control are also very important. Plus please understand there is no cure for diabetes. In some ads people claim they cure diabetes, this is totally false. If anyone cures diabetes then he will get nobel prize for that. So do not go by any adds. There are some ayurvedic medicines being advertised none of them have been tried like modern medicines on human beings in double blind trials. Only some animal trials are done. So better not to go by adds. Thanks for the question. Th.

I have been taking the following drugs for the last 4 years without any change: for diabetes: galvusmet 50/500 twice daily. Glimepride 2 mg twice daily. For high bp: olmat am 20 once a day. I regularly check my blood sugar and bp at home. My total cholesterol is under control. Mt hba1c reading last checked in nov 2014 was 7 (good control). I go for regular walking and jogging for at least 45 minutes 5 days a week. I am slightly overweight 83 kgs. I wish to know should I continue with the above medicines further or I need to change them, and if yes, what medicines should I take ?

It seems u r quite conscious for your health and taking medicines regularly and everything pretty under control. Still send me your last hba1c report, last 2 fbs pp2bs report, lipid profile report. As u r having diabetes and hypertension for 12 yrs, check your serum creatinine level and urine albumin level also, get an ecg and get fundus examination by ophthalmologist. Your wright is static or increased recently? any symptoms like east fatiguability, cold intolerance etc? and continue diet and exercise.

My blood sugar level is very high. How can I reduce it in a week. Pls give me some tips.
Mr. Lybrate-user, high blood sugar can be reduced by appropriate drugs, diet restriction and daily exercise. If you take drugs prescribed as advised then sugar levels do come down fairly rapidly. But to maintain those, medicine/s should be taken regularly, plus dietary control has to be strictly observed.

I have gout. Uric acid is 7.5 mg/dl. Please tell me what precautions I need to take.

BHMS
Homeopath, Faridabad
Hi, Gout (also known as podagra when it involves the big toe) is usually characterized by recurrent attacks of inflammatory arthritis—a red, tender, hot, and swollen joint. Pain typically comes on rapidly in less than twelve hours. The joint at the base of the big toe is affected in about half of cases. It may also result in tophi, kidney stones, or urate nephropathy. Prevention: Both lifestyle changes and medications can decrease uric acid levels. Dietary and lifestyle choices that are effective include reducing intake of food such as meat and seafood, consuming adequate vitamin C, limiting alcohol and fructose consumption, and avoiding obesity. Coffee, but not tea, consumption is associated with a lower risk of gout. Medication: Take homoeooapthic medicine – Colchicum 30/ 3 times a day daily for 1 month, report back to me.

Hello, If hypothyroidism is not in control (high TSH levels, then efforts to reduce weight are not fruitful. In fact hypothyroidism leads to weight gain. So firts thing is to bring it under very good control with TSH level maintained between 3 to 4 mU/L. If this is achieved, then efforts to control weight through regular exercise and diet restriction will be beneficial. Taking green tea by itself will not give any benefit unless diet is controlled with calorie restriction and regular exercise. Thanks.

What should be the diet for a diabetic patient 60 yes female. Can she take rice in lunch and dinner?

What should be the diet for a diabetic patient 60 yes female. Can she take rice in lunch and dinner?
Diabetes is a disease of carbohydrates metabolism. So one has to be very cautious in eating carbohydrate diet. Rice elevates blood sugar quickly. Hence plain rise is not advisable. But if it is made of brown rice with fibres like vegetables or split green lentils, then it is allowed in medium proportions. Basically she has to avoid white rice, potatoes, fried food and sweets.

At this point of time, diabetes is one of the most chronic, fastest growing lifestyle disease in the world. Also known as diabetes mellitus, the condition is basically a metabolic disorder, wherein the human body cannot store and use fuel for the energy. This fuel or glucose is the one that powers all our bodily organs and ensures that we have the energy to carry out activities throughout the day.

And while diabetes is a popular medical condition, a lot of people don't have much information about it. Although, they know the major types of diabetes, they have no clue about the difference between them. Here we outline type I vs type ii diabetes-

***type I diabetes- formerly known as juvenile onset or insulin dependent diabetes, type I diabetes is the one in which your body's immune system destroys all kinds of cells that release insulin. Over a period of time, this results in elimination of insulin production from the body, because of which the cells cannot absorb glucose or sugar and produce energy. Type I diabetes have episodes of low blood sugar level and it cannot be problem. Symptoms usually start from childhood or young adulthood.

***type ii diabetes- the adult onset or non-insulin dependent diabetes can develop at any age, particularly after the 30s, although the cases of same are rising rapidly among children. This type of diabetes involves production of insulin, but not in a right way, a condition known as insulin resistance. For this kind of diabetes, the person usually might not have symptoms before the diagnoses and there are rarely any episodes of low sugar level. It can be easily prevented or delayed by following a healthy lifestyle and indulging in regular exercising.

If you have any of the above symptoms or have more questions related to diabetes, click on consult privately to ask me.
