It is cured automatically and is called gestational diabetes. But it can precipitate again and then it will be permanent. You have to be on the toes. Keep on checking after every six months.

Unless the doctor &patient mutually coordinate the management of Type-1 / type-2 diabetes.Patients who are on insulin should be very careful in the diet &medical management,failing which we have to face irreversible serious complications.You wrote urine sugar 284 it could be PPBS.All your complaints are due to diabetic neuropathy. So consult a good diabetologist,show him the previous test reports and details of medicines used,then he can help.Treatment is not over with single visit,you have to visit once in a month and both of you should discuss the prognosis

What is diabetes, how we come to know about it and what precautions should we have to take to control diabetes.
Hello, diabetes is a metabolic disorder affecting carbohydrate, fat and protein metabolism and both small and large blood vessels, with persistent hyperglycemia. In the long run it damages eyes (retina), nerves, kidney, heart and causing problems with lower limbs. It is caused because of either lack of insulin or resistance to its action (t2 dm) or total absence of insulin as in t1 dm. T2 diabetes is a preventable condition, by adapting modified life style one can prevent it. Modified life style means regular exercise, maintaining near normal weight, avoiding smoking and alcohol and eating a healthy diet.

Any blood level above 126 in fasting state is considered to be diabetes. It will be better to repeat the test forom a reliable lab by a proper test (not glucometer testing by finger prick). If results are same, you will need consult a doctor for a comprehensive advice.

Some diseases are hard to cure by default. But we have get some good result in ankylosing sp by ayurveda. We generally prefer panchkarma in such cases. I advice you to do virechana (medicated purgation) n basti (ayurvedic medicated anema course). Only they can help you. After panchkarma starts ayurveda medicine. You can easily get information about basti n virechana.

Mr. lybrate-user, If hypothyroidism is present then taking thyroxine (thyronorm) in adequate dosage is the only option. There is no other permanent treatment. You will have to continue taking that tablet for lifetime. If you have any specific doubts you are welcome to come in a private conversation. Thanks.

You don't have high blood pressure at the moment, but it is slightly above optimal. Single readings are not diagnostic. Optimal BP is <120/80. It would be wise to adopt a healthy lifestyle, such as eating healthily, reduce salt in your diet, exercise, lose weight if overweight, limit alcohol consumption and stop smoking if you smoke. The good thing about exercise is that it reduces the strain on the heart and also raises your HDL (good cholesterol) as well as improving circulation. Now with regards to exercise, the best type of exercise for the heart is aerobic activity which ensures the large groups of muscles in the body get a good work out. Swimming is good, as is brisk walking, dancing and cycling, etc. With regards to diet, as I mentioned before, limit salt consumption and the amount of saturated fats you eat. Also limit the amount of complex carbs you eat. Try and eat 5 portions of fruit and vegetables per day * and also try and eat 3 portions of oily fish per week. Try and avoid frying your food, grill it instead. Switch to olive oil. The key is moderation, you can eat anything you like providing you don't go OTT. * A recent study showed that eating your "5 a day" fruit and vegetables may not cut the cancer risk. Many people have interpreted this study into meaning that eating your "5 a day" fruit and vegetables isn't beneficial at all and that what Doctors and Nurses have been advising patients is incorrect. This isn't accurate. The study just looked at the diet-cancer link (which we already knew wasn't very strong anyway), it didn't look at the other health benefits that eating fruit and vegetables has. But that study has certainly given the alties and their "special cancer curing diet" food for thought! There are various causes of high blood pressure, but proper diet and regular exercise are definitely the biggest part of the equation. “ Actually there are two types, essential and secondary, the latter accounts for about 5% of cases and can be caused by kidney and/or hormone issues. Most people have “essential” hypertension where the cause is less than clear. We know that a poor diet, obesity, excess alcohol, smoking and lack of exercise are major risk factors. Diet and lifestyle changes often helps and is sometimes enough to keep patients off anti-hypertensive medication.

Ways In Which Homeopathy Gets Into Roots To Cure Diabetes

Ways In Which Homeopathy Gets Into Roots To Cure Diabetes

Diabetes is a lifestyle disease that usually occurs when the pancreas do not carry out their functions in a proper manner. This leads to excess absorption of glucose from the food consumed by the patient. There are several types and risk factors attached with this lifestyle disease, and it is known as a long-term condition that cannot be fully cured. With homeopathy, the doctors now have a way wherein the symptoms can be contained even as the sugar levels are well-modulated so that over time, the ailment does not become a particularly debilitating one. Here are the ways in which a homeopathic doctor can help you in doing so, by reaching your very root so as to find a way to manage and treat diabetes in a more effective manner.

Managing Blood Sugar Levels- Solutions like Uranium Nitricum, Phosphoric Acid and Cephalandra Indica can be prescribed by a homeopathic specialist so as to help you in managing the blood sugar levels. These are an excellent standalone source, when it comes to keeping the blood sugar level steady and preventing a sudden spike in the same.

Holistic Approach- While homeopathic medicines are usually based on creating a new lifestyle that may accommodate the changes in one’s body due to the advent of a disease like diabetes, it may also be seen that the approach is usually customized as per the body and system of the individual. Before studying the patient’s physiological symptoms or prescribing a medicine, every homeopathic doctor finds out the actual cause behind the advent of diabetes in that particular patient. In this way, these medicines try to maintain harmony in the body, as they usually promote better management of the symptoms.

Constitutional Treatment- In order to prescribe the right method of medication for you, most homeopathic medical practitioners try and understand how you have been built. These doctors move past symptoms and other signs of diabetes and find out if you have a family history of the condition, and how it may have affected those in your family who have previously suffered or have been suffering from the ailment. Based on this evaluation, they reach the very root of the problem and prescribe the right medication for the same.

Promotive Approach- Type 2 diabetes is a kind of diabetes that can be controlled with the help of some changes in one’s lifestyle. Through homeopathy, the doctor will tend to reach out with this kind of deep-rooted and long-term form of treatment so that the blood sugar levels may be contained in an appropriate way.

How to control sugar how can I control sugar my sugar is 290 with glucose and 238without glucose.
Fasting and post meal blood glucose values seems quite high. Get your HbA1c test done. It is approx average of last 3 months blood sugar level and more reliable. You need to start medication. Please consult any diabetologist with reports.

My blood count of uric acid is 8.0 if it's normal. But i am facing foot pain. How to recover?
Mr. Lybrate-user, uric acid has to be <7 mg/dl to be normal. That may be the reason for pain. You may have to avoid foods containing purines or reduce high protein foods like liver and other organ meats, red meat, certain fishes, like herring, sardines, haddock, salmon, trout, mushrooms, mussels etc. Reduce sweetened aerated drinks, avoid alcohol, high fat milk products. If still uric acid remain high, then specific drug to reduce uric acid may have to be taken. Thanks.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for query. It appears the present dose a bit high. You can cut it to 87.5 mcg per day. On treatment TSH should be around 3 to 4 mU/L, so you can reduce the dose as mentioned and then check TSH after 8 weeks. To see if that has helped. Thanks.
