Mr. Lybrate-user, diabetes mellitus (t2) occurs either due to deficiency of insulin or resistance to its action or both. Plus overweight and inactivity contribute in increasing and maintaining high blood glucose level. Hence, treatment is directed towards increasing insulin level by giving certain drugs that stimulate secretion. Secondly certain other drugs are used to reduce resistance. All these are oral preparations. Some times hyperglycemia is very severe, then insulin injections have to be used, along with oral drugs. As regards other medical practices, there are really no drugs available which can stimulate insulin secretion or replace insulin itself. Those drugs can be used as supportive medicines. I have answered even though you wanted an ayurvedic specialist to give the answer, because I felt certain facts should be brought to your notice. Plus modern anti diabetes drugs are quite safe. Thanks.

Strict adherence to suggested diet and exercise regimen is absolutely necessary. Insulin dosage may have to titrate up wards by checking sugar levels daily.

I am diabetic type-2 for last 6-7 years plus had cardiac arrest in Jan 2015. I take my cardiac related medication regularly and medication for diabetes; while my blood sugar level fluctuates rather wildly. I walk more than 8000 steps every morning for almost one hour get back home have coffee without sugar (for last 12-15 years) with two biscuits (Marie), followed by breakfast {Idly 3/4 or Dosa 2 or Upma 2 scoops or 2/3 slices of wheat bread with one egg} I have a small sized mug of porridge around 10/11am followed by lunch at 1pm {Rice (2/3 laddles) or chapati (2), subzi two scoops, liquid curry 2 scoops & yogurt 2 scoops}. Some days only there is evening coffee or tea w/o sugar and some biscuits 2nos or poha dry}. Dinner is almost same (if rice for lunch then wheat for dinner}. There is a lot of physical activity done around house plus climbing from GF to FF to roof top. Presently medication is; (a) PRAX A 75 (0-1-0), (b) Istavel 100mg (1-0-0) (c) Cardivas CR 10 (1-0-0),(d) A to Z (1-0-0) {Multi vitamin tablets} (e) Rozavel F (0-0-1), (f) Diamicron Mr. 30mg (0-0-1) Walking is no problem except need to do a slower start than what was done earlier feeling is pleasant pain & tiredness very brief which is naturally cooled off sitting shade on terrace reading morning newspapers. I can easily walk same distance in evening. Sugar level is fluctuating sometimes as low as 88/120 to as high as 150/210? How do I ensure it remains steady and thro what control? Diet? Please advice.

You are perfectly following a diabetic diet and the sugar levels you mentioned are minor fluctuations and need not require extra medication

You need to get your fasting blood glucose and hba1c checked first, along with your lipid profile. There are a lot of anti-diabetic medicines available in the market and choice of medicine varies from person to person. So get your tests done and visit your physician at the earliest. Life lstyle modification has a great role to play too. Avoid all starchy and sweet things, fatty foods to be avoided too. Quit smoking and alchohol. Exercise daily for at least 40 minutes.

Hello, I am giving you Management of Diabetes that include Diet, physical exercise, and medications 1.Food if you have diabetes, you need to know how foods affect your blood sugar levels. It's not only the type of food you eat but also how much you eat and the combinations of food types you eat. Learn about carbohydrate counting and portion sizes. A key to many diabetes management plans is learning how to count carbohydrates. Carbohydrates are the foods that often have the biggest impact on your blood sugar levels. Use measuring cups or a scale to ensure proper portion size and an accurate carbohydrate count. Make every meal well-balanced every meal to have a good mix of starches, fruits and vegetables, proteins, and fats. Some carbohydrates, such as fruits, vegetables and whole grains, are better for you than are others. These foods are low in carbohydrates and contain fiber that helps keep your blood sugar levels more stable. Coordinate your meals and medications. Too little food in proportion to your diabetes medications — especially insulin — may result in dangerously low blood sugar (hypoglycemia). Too much food may cause your blood sugar level to climb too high (hyperglycemia). Avoid sugar-sweetened beverages. Sugar-sweetened beverages The exception is if you are experiencing a low blood sugar level. Sugar-sweetened beverages, such as soda, juice and sports drinks, can be used as an effective treatment for quickly raising blood sugar that is too low. Exercise Physical activity is another important part of your diabetes management plan. When you exercise, your muscles use sugar (glucose) for energy. Regular physical activity also helps your body use insulin more efficiently. These factors work together to lower your blood sugar level. In general, most adults should exercise at least 30 minutes a day on most days of the week. Keep an exercise schedule. Talk to your doctor about the best time of day for you to exercise so that your workout routine is coordinated with your meal and medication schedules. Check your blood sugar level. Check your blood sugar level before, during and after exercise. Medication Insulin and other diabetes medications are designed to lower your blood sugar levels when diet and exercise alone aren't sufficient for managing diabetes.

Even doctors are ignorant of genital tb causing infertility

Having the highest number of population aff ected by tuberculosis, india also has the highest incidence of genital tuberculosis. The number of indian women suffering from the condition is particularly high.

Nagpur: having the highest number of population affected by tuberculosis, india also has the highest incidence of genital tuberculosis. The number of indian women suffering from the condition is particularly high. It is among the most common causes of infertility, yet not many doctors consider the possibility of genital tuberculosis while treating infertility.

According to some estimates, around 40% indians are infected with tb bacteria. Most of these are latent cases, wherein the sufferer doesn't show symptoms of the disease but can still spread the disease. Genital tb is found to affect around 1% women in india. Ways to manage the condition were discussed during the conference masterclass infertility organized in the city recently.

"the percentage of infertility in the country increases due to genital tb. Among those seeking treatment for infertility, 10-19% of females are affected by it. However, since the condition doesn't have any noticeable symptoms it remains undetected in most patients and infertility caused by it gets categorized as something else" said senior gynaecologist from the city Dr. Sushma deshmukh. She added that the lack of symptoms means that doctors often don't address genital tb as a reason causing infertility.

"the biggest problem is that very few bacteria can cause the disease. This low number makes most tests made to diagnose the disease unsuccessful. This is why it is recommended that bacteria culture, a molecular biology test for ccr and histopathology on the lining of the uterus must be done together" said bangalore-based gynaecologist Dr. Reeta biliangadi. The positive outcome of all these tests, along with observation of clinical signs indicates that the patient is suffering from genital tb.

Among the warning signs of the condition that doctors and the patients must look for include menstrual problems, constant pain in lower abdomen and white discharge" the condition generally flares up during menstruation in the adolescent age. If detected at this time, the damage to the reproductive organs like uterus and fallopian tubes can be minimized. If not, the damage can worsen with time, making it practically impossible for the woman to conceive naturally" said Dr. Biliangadi.

As the fallopian tubes get affected in all cases of the disease, chances of natural conception among the patients are less than 20%, added Dr. Deshmukh.

"despite the availability of tests to detect genital tb, less than 40% patients with it get the chance to go through the tests" she said.


Affect on reproductive health of patient

It starts by affecting the process of releasing the egg into the uterus, which also leads to menstruation

It destroys endometrium or the lining of the uterus where eggs get implanted. This makes natural conception difficult

Leads to obstruction of fallopian tubes, or gradual destruction of the tubes

Increases the possibility of diseases like fibroids.

Reduce your weight by 25 to 30 kg if possible by strict diet and exercise. Your medicine list shows you are hypertensive as well so it is better for your heart to do that. You should have a low carbohydrate diet (avoiding potatoes, rice, direct sugar etc) and eat a lot of salads for fiber and filling effect. Eat frequent small meals in place of 2 full meals

How to make conceive with pcos and hyperthyroidism.
Pcos is more commonly associated with hypothyroidism and can lead to subfertility. Optimising the thyroid levels is the starting point. It is a good idea to take t3 supplements (from a compounding pharmacy) in addition to the conventional eltroxin/thyronorm. Insulin resistance need to be looked for and treated. Thyroid anti bodies need to be checked and addressed. Diet, exercise, lifestyle changes to facilitate weight reduction will help. In addition to hormonal issues one should rule out tubal block by consilting a gynacologist.

First of all we need to check your sugar levels by doing different tests of your blood. Based on the levels of sugar we have to decide whether you need to take drugs or insulin or whether your case can be manged by lifestyle modifications such as diet and exercise. It may be possible to control type 2 diabtes wihout drugs in some cases but you have to be investigated to know if thats possible for you.
