Mr. Lybrate-user, diabetes can only be treated by either oral anti-diabetic drugs or insulin injections or both. Plus diet restriction and regular exercise. Unfortunately there are no other drugs in any branch of medicine which control blood sugar. So my suggestion is to continue present treatment. I have seen patients in my practice who stopped modern medicine and started other therapies and have come back with exceptionally high blood sugar. Now the choice is yours.

Mr. Lybrate-user, what is the query? you seem to have asthmatic condition probably due to allergy. The remedy for such a condition is to take prescribed drugs regularly, avoid exposure to known allergen and avoid excess physical strain as that also is likely to precipitate an attack. I have noticed in a few of my patients practicing pranayam (breathing exercises) regularly does help in overcoming the severity of the condition. The seven pranayams: bhastrika, kapalbhati, bahya, agnisar, anulom vilom, bhramari and udgit (om). Thse are really helpful.

I am causes diabetes last 4 month 165 take food I didn't take any medicine so what can I do.
Hye, thanks for the query. For a diabetic it is best advised to have a diet planned as per the sugar levels, lifestyle and history. Though you can follow some guidelines - the sugar levels will fluctuate depending on what you ate or did not eat, stress levels and activity levels. You have to try and manage a balanced carb intake. Have small frequent meals. Do not fast for long hours. You have to eat 3 main and 3 mid meals. Your diet must include whole grains, seasonal fruits, vegetables, small amounts of nuts and dairy and pulses or dals or lean meats like chicken or fish and egg. Starchy vegetables need to be planned into the diet. Avoid a very heavy meal at one time. Avoid fruit juices, aerated drinks or sugarcane juice, honey, jaggery or sugar. Avoid junk foods. Exercise and stay active. Avoid exercise if sugar levels are above 250 mg/dl. Do not attempt to try out too many remedies as you could go into hypoglycaemia. Sleep well. It's all a matter of discipline.

I am 25 years female, got thyroid 2 years back. Doctors said it's an pregnancy thyroid, and I had asked to take tablets regularly. Recently my TSH level got increased to 6.6 and weight increased to 110 kgs. Now I'm worried whether it will affect my baby because I'm feeding him.

lybrate-user, If proper treatment is going on with adequate dosage of thyroxine then TSH is maintained between 3 to 4 mU/L. In that situation all the symptoms are in check, plus efforts to control weight are also successful. Looking at your weight and height there grade 2 obesity with a BMI of 36.97 kgs/M2. You are carrying 38 kgs extra weight. Please make a serious effort to reduce weight by at least 5 to 8 %. If your baby did not have hypothyroidism at birth, then it is unlikely develop at least for now. Thanks.

After taking Fenofibrate for longer period say 6 months my creatinine level is going up in every check up. to 1.3 from 0.06. Is this side effect? Whether to discouninue Fenofibrate? Please answer. Best Regards

MD - Consultant Physician
General Physician, Mumbai
You have type 1 DM. I do not know your age and the duration of your diabetes. The s. creatinine of 0.06 mg is abnormally low. Is the report right? The s. creatinine of 1.3 is not necessarily high. One needs to take the age and body weight into consideration and then calculate the creatinine clearance. That gives a more accurate picture of the kidney function. Fenofibrate is unlikely to be the cause for the rising s. creatinine.

Drink more water, high-carbohydrate foods such as potatoes, rice, pasta and bread. You can take Nutrient-rich foods that improve your health may also benefit your thyroid gland, antioxidant-rich fruits and vegetables more plenty of water: Blueberries, tomatoes, bell peppers, and other foods rich in antioxidants can improve overall health and benefit the thyroid gland. Eating foods high in B vitamins, like whole grains, may also help. Selenium: Tiny amounts of selenium are needed for enzymes that make thyroid hormones to work properly. Eating selenium-rich foods, such as sunflower seeds or Brazil nuts, can be beneficial. Tyrosine: This amino acid is used by the thyroid gland to produce T3 and T4. Taking a supplement may help, repeat your tests from leading lab. you can continue your tab. elroxine 100 mcg.

Take homeopathic medicine acid phos 1m/single dose (5 drops in little water) and revert after 2 weeks. Apply jaborandi hair oil. Also use arnica shampoo. Drink 8-10 glasses of water daily. Eat healthy and balanced food like pulses, green leafy vegetables, fresh fruits and nuts etc. Add more vitamin rich food to your diet. Avoid stress and anger by meditation. Cut down the use of hair spray, hair gel. Take sound/good sleep. Avoid too much exposure of your hair to sunlight/ hair styling tools, as they damage hair and cause split ends.

I that of taking Purim tablets from Himalaya drugs to cleanse/purify my blood. I have a history of little uric acid as ll. I cannot take too many medicine as I keep travelling. Can anybody prescribe me one single medicine which has various benefit along with my current problems and also I have little low libido. I prefer Ayurveda or homeopathy medicine. I use to take homeopathy medicine for boosting my sexual desires but the doctor never use to share his tonic information. He use to collect 500rs for 30 ml tonic and he use to mix 2-3 variety of tonic in one 30 ml bottle, which actually worked. I had very long duration and enjoyed lot with the medicine. But uric acid use to shoot up by that medicine. I want medicine which can balance my uric acid as ll as maintain my man hood life. Dear, doctors, I am 35 years old guy. Kindly prescribe me a single medicine at least for blood purifying and uric acid, also the dosage and how long should I take for permanent cure. Blood purifying I want to clear the toxins from my body. Thanks and appreciate for the patience that you see to my question .regards :shankar.

Mr. lybrate-user, Since you have belief only on Ayurveda and homeopathy it is good enough. But according to modern science, our blood is never spoiled or has any toxic substances to purify it. This is purely an Ayurvedic concept, the basis of which is difficult to understand. Because if our blood gets affected, as we know, a person can not survive. You also mentioned about some medicine given by the doctor (tonic), which would improve your libido etc. Since he does not disclose what ingredients it contains, how would one know if he has not mixed some modern medicine (allopathic) compounds in it. In modern medicine e there is npo secret, everything is clearly mentioned. To reduce uric acid one has to restrict red meat, organ meat, certain sea foods, and fishes. Avoid alcohol, sweetened aerated drinks. Reduce high fat foods. Thanks.

Hello, Its always better to avoid, but if at all it should not go beyond 2 drinks per week...thats max.. Diabetes is all about metabolic problems and alcohol further slows down metabolism. Which is surely for good for the glucose uptake.

Hello, biscuits are really not a healthy food. If you need fiber use vegetables, fruits, flax seeds, fenugreek seeds and whole grain products. There is hardly a need for instant energy, if your diet is balanced and healthy. Thanks for the question.

Diabetes affects all organs in the body ? Eyes, kidneys, nerves, reproductive system all are affected, In fact, from toe to hair. For diabetic control, patient should be under proper guidance for regular follow up and advice. It is not as easy task to control blood sugar in the desired normal range. Whatever we eat is metabolised to sugar in the body to provide energy for our daily activities. For the absolute control, one has to monitor his / her blood sugar at regular intervals (Self-Monitoring of Blood glucose ? SMBG). Though difficult, this can be done by a glucometer and keep a record. Get an idea of Fasting sugar (FBS) and 2 hours after food (PPBS), & HbA1C (inform me) and check before dinner and after every major food. The basic idea is to reduce the food intake to 1/3 of what you take now. The dictum of sugar control is diet, exercise, diet + medicine and at later stage medicine+ Insulin will be needed. There are different diet plans of varying calories for each person depending on his activity & lifestyle.

A high uric acid level can be caused when your body either produces too much uric acid or your kidneys don't eliminate uric acid rapidly enough. A high uric acid level may cause increasingly frequent attacks of gout, or it may never cause problems. A high uric acid level may also cause some people to develop kidney stones or kidney failure. And some people with a high uric acid level also develop high blood pressure, heart disease or chronic kidney disease, but it's often unclear whether this is a direct cause or merely an early warning sign of these conditions. Factors that may cause a high uric acid level in your blood include: Diuretic medications (water pills),Drinking too much alcohol,Genetics (inherited tendencies),hypothyroidism (underactive thyroid),Immune-suppressing drugs,Niacin, or vitamin B-3, obesity,psoriasis, Purine-rich diet — organ meat, game meat, anchovies, herring, gravy, dried beans, driedpeas, mushrooms and other foods Renal insufficiency — inability of the kidneys to filter waste Tumor lysis syndrome — a rapid release of cells into the blood caused by certain cancers or by chemotherapy for those cancers,Also, you may be monitored for high uric acid levels when undergoing chemotherapy or radiation treatment for cancer. Avoid protein diets, avoid more milk products. bad habits , fast food/fat/oily,salty foods. Coffee, smoking, alcohol intake. Non-veg., take whole grain,oats,green veg.,plenty of water in day time, 1 glass of water at night before bed. Take tab. Zyloric 100 mg once a day. Tab. Ulracet sos for pain in joints.
