Hello, yes homeopathy can work for type 2. Lifestyle changes are equally important to manage diabetes. Regular exercise, small and frequent meals (5-6 meals) instead of 3 big traditional meals are the key things. Focus more on complex carbohydrates such as millets (ragi, jowar, bajra, oats), whole wheat. Avoid eating the bakery and processed food as much as possible.

I am suffering from sugar please tell me some preventions and precaution to take?
Be on a strict diabetic diet. Avoid direct sugars. Use sugar free tablets instead of sugar. Take medicines regularly according to the advice of your doctor, get your blood and urine examined for sugar every month. Use soft mcr chappals while walking. Take utmost care of your foot and eyes, go for an eye checkup once in a year. Go for a walk everyday for about 1hr. All these will help you to keep your sugar level under control.

Lybrate-user, madam, looking at her height and weight it is clear that she has (bmi 51.94kg/m2) morbid obesity, which is the main reason for her problems with joints and joint pain. Unless the weight is reduced joint pain will not go away. She may have to look the option of bariatric surgery, which can help in reduction weight.

HI, It is difficult to tell the exact duration. In some , the deposition may occur fast and in some it may be very slow. It also depends of the nature of the food intake. The more the intake of fats, the more faster is its deposition and blockage of the arteries.

Dear lybrate user, one of the major nutritional substance required for human body is carbohydrate. We take carbohydrate in the form of rice, wheat, sugar etc. The complex molecules of carbohydrate are broken down into simple glucose molecules during digestion & released in the blood stream to be absorbed by the muscle cells. Muscle cells utilise the glucose molecules to release energy by breaking down those glucose molecules. Insulin hormone plays a vital role in the absorption of the glucose molecules by the muscle cells. In abnormal conditions, either due to less production of insulin or due to resistance to insulin, the process of absorption of glucose by the muscles comes to a stand still. The glucose molecules remains in the bloodstream which results in the increase in the blood sugar level. The failure of utilisation of the glucose molecules by the muscle cells results in production of less energy than normal condition. This is externally manifested as the fatigue & tiredness of the patient. This excess amount of blood sugar compels the kidney to function more than normal level in order to excrete the blood sugar molecules through urine. As a result the patient suffers from frequent urination. This abnormal condition is clinically known as diabetes mellitus. Once a patient is diagnosed with diabetes he has to take regular medicine to keep his blood sugar level within normal limits. Your freind needs to take homoeopathic mother tincture gymnema sylvestra q, 30 drops, thrice daily, after meals, in a cup of water. Also he should walk at least 1 hour daily without any interval. Also he should to take a low carbohydrate rich diet. He should avoid rice, sweet dishes, fruits, cold drinks, fast foods, alcoholic beverages, potato etc.

Mr. lybrate-user, If diabetes is diagnosed, the treatment with appropriate drugs has to be started immediately. Diabetes is a condition which can only be controlled very well, there is no cure. Treatment has to be for lifetime. There is no other option. If you want me to guide specifically about which treatment to take and what other precautions to be taken, please come in a private conversation with following details: Fasting, Pp blood glucose levels, HbA1c%, present drugs being taken if any, dietary pattern and extent of daily exercise. Based on those details I will be able to give specific guidelines. Thanks.

Is ime 9 tablets is best for diabetes or specially sugar please give me answer shortly, thank you.
Mr. lybrate-user, The particular tablet which is being advertised heavily in TV, is just a combination of some herbal remedies, based on encient ayurvedic texts. There is very little scientific evidence to support. Unless a patient is on modern medicine to treat diabetes or to control blood glucose, there is no way to control it. The medicine mentioned by you can be at best can be taken as a supportive therapy. I have absolutely no belief on the various claims made. Thanks.
