My opinion would be to wait. Meanwhile, a salt restricted diet, avoidance of junk food, avoidance of smoking/tobacco, regular exercise and adequate sleep should be ensured. A regular monitoring of blood pressure is essential.

We know oats are diabetic friendly, but when I eat oats with only dal (oats khichri) at night my fasting sugar increase above 200. When I eat rice (2 tea cups) at night with dal, sabji, fish etc my fasting sugar within 140.

No food works in isolation. Also there are many myths surrounding foods. Oats is actually higher in glycemic index and can raise sugar levels. Also your body needs a balance of carbs protein and fats. Eating a restricted meal is not advisable. For better sugar control you need to have a balanced meal of your traditional foods.

I am suffering from diabetics, and I am getting too much leg pain. What might be the reason please.
Diabetes leads to damage on the nerves of the body and due to damage to nerves the sensations for which these nerves are responsible which could be touch, pain, cold, hot etc would get compromised. Pain in legs is one such thing for which diabetics get prone to due to diabetic neuropathy.

Mr. Lybrate-user, the sugar levels are ok, only after food is high. To control these levels, you need to take appropriate anti diabetic drugs, plus control the diet and exercise daily for at least 1 hour a day, brisk walking is good. Food to be taken is like every one of us, but no sweets, no direct sugar or gur, no deep fried foods, no junk foods and pastries. Also avoid sweetened aerated drinks, high fat milk products, red meat, egg yolk. Fish is good, but not fried one. Consume good deal of green leafy vegetables and salads.

Dear . You do have diabetes and since you have not mentioned your age I presume it to be type 2 diabetes. Besides following a diabetic diet you should do 45 min of brisk walking and you need to start on medications.

Diabetes is not a health concern but a condition where sugar in the blood does not allow the absorption of many nutrients, as a result, many other concerns take place. If you want results then you would have to correct the diet, deal with the deficiencies, and make a healthy diet plan. You can contact separately.

Nothing to worry, homoeopathy is the permanent solution for hypothyroidism. Is there any family history of thyroid problems? Better to avoid cabbage and cauliflower along with medicines.

Sir am suffering from blood uric acid. My blood uric acid level is 9. And also drugs like zyloric and febumac are not suiting me. Every time I take d drug I get rashes all over my body and am unable to make a fist even. What other tablet can I take for blood uric acid am suffering from.

Master in Psychology, MD - Ayurveda, Dems, Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)
Ayurveda,
High protein diet or improper excretion due to kidney disease may lead to high uric acid concentration in blood. If allopathic treatment is not suiting u. You must switch over to ayurvedic treatment, which is safe and 100% effectively.
