If diabetes is not well controlled, then a person can loose weight. So please take care and control the blood glucose levels. Fasting should be closer to 100 mg, PP 150 to 160 mg & HbA1c% <6.8. If this not achieved then one gets in to various problems including weight loss. Thanks.

Yes, sugar free tablets are quite safe in limited quantities. You may add them in your coffee/tea/prepared beverages. However, cooking after adding them is NOT always safe... especially, baking. Some of these artficial sweeteners are unstable at high temperatures. Beware.

It could be due to cervical spondylosis this is quite a common condition rule out diabetes & vit. D deficiency or any other metabolic disorder. Sleep on a hard bed with soft bedding on it. Use no pillow under the head. Any way take ibuprofen 200mg od & sos x 5days do neck & back (spine) exercises contact me again if need be. Use of cervical collar will give you relief. It may have to be further investigated. Make sure you are not allergic to any of the medicines you are going to take you will need other supportive medicines also.

Hi onion is very good vegetable to treat sexual impotence. It increases libido and strengthens reproducing organs. White onions are best for this purpose. Take about 5-10 gm root powder of Ladyfinger in a glass of milk. Add 2 tsp of mishri in this milk and drink it. This will prove helpful in improving sexual vigour. Apply pranacharya gopal oil on your penis and give a massage. It will strengthen your nerves and erection power will get better. You can take ayurvedic medicines too along with this.

See some simple solutions are enisted here. You can try them and if you need any further help feel free to contact me. 1. Soak methi leaves overnight and take them in the morning 2. You can take aloe and karela juice in the morning for better results. 3. Try taking cinnamon in green tea for better results. 4. Avid oily and carbohydrate rich food items. I hope this will be helpful for you. Regards, Dr. Surabhi jain.

lybrate-user, If hypothyroidism is present then weight increase is bound to occur unless TSH level is brought down around 3 to 4 mU/L. So first thing is to see that TSH is at desired level. Then efforts to reduce weight are likely to be fruitful. Most important is to have a restricted diet and exercise daily for at least 1 hour. Thanks.

Mr Pritam, At 27 years you have very severe hypertension and it has to be controlled rapidly. The dose of Amlodepine 5 mg, is very low and there may be a need for additional drugs. About fasting blood sugar level of 88 mg, it is absolutely normal. There is no need to worry about that. But you BP needs to be better controlled. It will be better if you come in a private conversation where I can give specific suggestions and even prescription. In this communication we are supposed to give only general guide lines like to control BP you have to reduce daily salt intake to 2.3 g, avoid smoking and alcohol. Practice yogasanas etc.

Hi i Am a 65 year old male with diabetes. Hba1c 7.2% and on max dose of metformin and voglibose. Last blood test showed insufficiency in vitamin d (total) 25 ng/ml ; vitamin b12 192 pg/ml and low testosterone 191.6 ng/ml. Iron and calcium within limits as is cholesterol/ triglycerides. T3/t4/ tsh suggest thyronormalcy. Key difficulty is insufficient and interrupted sleep. 5 hrs per night -this is my major problem. 1. What should I do next since metformin is at max dosage- 2250 per day? no insulin please. Sitagliptin? 2. Is there a natural method of improving testosterone? how far below normal am i? does it need action? thank you,

At 65 yrs, hba1c is fine, but I would recommend to bring to 7, you can start with sitagliptin 100 mg once a day, and continue metformin and voglibose. Take vitamin d3 and vitamin b12 supplements, testerone levels decreases with age, tester one caps can be taken, but under guidance of urologist or sexologist.
