Respected Doctor, I am a T2 diabetic patient since the last 10 years and on medication since the last 6 years. I am quite stress-prone. Presently I am taking trajenta duo 1000 after breakfast and Pioglit MF 15/500 after dinner. My HBA1c is 6.7. This has been revolving around 7 since the last couple of years. But whenever I have tested my FBS and PPBS, these have revolving around 14-150 and 170-180 respectively. Please guide me.
My daughter aged five and half years started to vomit anything she ate or drank from 1st June. On 2nd June my wife took her to a General Physician who prescribed Domstal - 5 DT and Ondem. As she showed no improvements, on 2nd June we took her to other doctor and she was prescribed Zyfix 100 LB, Vomikind MD 4 and advised to orally consume Glucose. She showed no improvement and visited the doctor again who advised to continue the same prescription and additionally prescribed Cypon. She showed some improvement but too tired as she had not eaten a proper food. On 7th June, she got rashes on her left upper arm. We again went to the doctor who prescribed citizen and Globet GM. As the rashes started to spread, on 7th June we went to 3rd doctor know to us who did a CBC and advised cepodem, Ondem, Atarax and calosoft Lotion. Her blood report showed the platelet count as 5.42 lakh/cmm and further advised for an abdomen and pelvis scan. The scan report showed everything normal. As the scan report was normal he advised her to admit to hospital. The same day we admitted her to a hospital recommended by the 3rd doctor. They repeated the blood report and was administered saline by 7 PM. By 9 PM my daughter was active, happily ate the food and has not vomited since that day. She had a good sleep and morning too she ate happily and we felt that she is getting better. However the rashes were still there and the doctor in hospital told that she is fine and blood report is normal and the platelet counts (4.79 lakh/cmm) are coming to normal and Reactive protein was 6.3 mg/dl. The saline was stopped in the morning and was discharged by 4 PM the next day. She was advised to continue Atarax and calosoft Lotion. As the rashes were not coming down, the next day (10th June) we took her to a dermatologist and he advised Allercet and Dapsone. She had not been to school these many days. The rashes had almost disappeared by 13th June and we sent her to school on 14th June. By the time she came home, she had rashes till knee complained pain in knee and calf muscle. We did not send her to school the following day and by evening 15th the rashes reduced and we sent her to school on 16th. Again by evening she had rashes and pain. We decided not to send her to school and watch over her condition on weekend. By 18th evening the rashes reduced significantly and we sent her to school on 19th. Rashes re-appeared by 5 pm when she returned home but no pain this time. Also the intensity of rashes is less when compared to other days. Please advise us on her condition and course of action to be taken.
A diet is something which takes a lot of effort and also a person’s will to become a better form of him or herself. After all the thought, persistence and work that goes into the process of planning the diet and the mental fortitude of going for it; can you imagine the disappointment which is inevitable when it fails? If nothing else, there are reasons why this is so!
- It takes time: When it comes to dieting, it is quite unfortunate to see people think of the process as a quick fix in order to meet a body target. It is often the case that these people slip back into their old dietary ways as soon as they can. Going back to eating things which are unhealthy is really bad after going on a diet as the weight of the person then starts to change. A change in mentality is required here as the person who goes on a diet should keep in mind the fact that a diet is something which is a change in lifestyle for the better and not a proverbial shot in the arm.
- Be realistic: Another reason why diets fail is on account of expectations of results which do not seem to be reasonable, by any measure. This happens to be the case in a surprisingly large number of instances. Results when it comes to health and fitness take a pretty long time to show; time which is spent consistently following the correct schedule.
- Don’t lose focus: While most diets are well intentioned, one of the issues when it comes to them is the fact that there is so much preparation behind it that when a person deviates even in a minor manner away from the plan, fatalistic thinking comes in and takes hold. In the end, the net result of all of this is the sad consequence that the diet is let go off. This occurs by the way of the person thinking that since he or she did cheat on the diet once, all is lost. It is to be kept in mind by a person who is in this sort of scenario that the fact that he or she did not follow the diet plan which had been set out but in its stead, completely contradicted it by the way of what was eaten, does not mean that he or she should give up!
Diets require persistence but they provide their benefits which are more than proportional! If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a dietitian-nutritionist.
I have acidity problem, I can't even eat one full bowl of rice, can any one natural remedies for this problem, because I am not interested in English medicines.
But mangoes are king of fruits. Summer is the only season to consume them as they are available. It's stupid to not consume them because of heat. Don't eat in large quantities but mangoes are good for health too.
I cannot focus on studies for more than 6-7 hours a day. I get a severe headache after that. Please help.

Hello doctor, I am 24 years old and for the past one month I am unable to breathe. I can not take a full breathe. Only sometimes I can breathe that is too by opening my mouth. Initially I had burns between my stomach and throat area. When eating something I felt burns. I went to an ENT doctor and he prescribed the following medicines. Ebast m, aciloc rd, abphyline sr 200, odimont lc, omez 20 mg. Now my chest pains sometimes and also some sharp pain on both sides of the chest. Mostly near the heart (left chest). Still I can not breathe fully and feel little burns inside me. Please me know the solution.
Contrary to popular understanding, the effects of CVD are often worse in women than in men:
Younger women who have a heart attack have higher mortality than men of the same age.
Women with diabetes have higher CVD mortality than men with diabetes.
Immediately following stroke, women are more likely to experience serious problems compared to men.
Yet women are more likely than men to be under-diagnosed and under-treated
