You have to start with body detoxification by vaman karma followed by rasayan medicines for 3 months. Both cholesterol & diabetes will come under control, but lifestyle change is a must.

I am 35 years old. My cholesterol and suger level is high. what can i do?

MD - Internal Medicine, MBBS
Endocrinologist,
I am 35 years old. My cholesterol and suger level is high. what can i do?
Hello dear High cholesterol can cause atherosclerotic heart disease or narrowed coronary arteries in the heart can cause the symptoms of angina, when theheart muscle is not provided with enough oxygen to function. Decreased blood supply to the brain may be due to narrowed small arteries in the brain or because the larger carotidarteries in the neck may become blocked. This can result in a transient ischmic attack or stroke. Peripheral artery disease describes gradual narrowing of the arteries that supply the legs. During exercise , if the legs do not get enough blood supply, they can develop pain , called claudication . Other arteries in the body may also be affected by plaque buildup causing them to narrow, including the mesenteric arteries to the intestine and the renal arteries to the kidney. Change life style .do meditation,yoga, Go walk daily, do any one physically activity daily i.e.play any game., Avoid fast foods,oily foods,junk foods,alcohol,smoking,fatty foods, non-veg.,avoid stress,take plenty of water in day time. And 1 glass of water before bed at night. use flax oil, omega-3 fatty meal or cap., take .green veg., whole grain. garlic,. Take anti cholesterol medicines . avoid sweet meal.tea,coffee.

You might be having rebound hyperglycaemia in your fasting sample, because with 25 units of actrapid your post meal level is 145 only meaning insulin is effectively controlling it. Possibly after the evening dose of insulin and a longer interval between dinner and lunch, by the early hours of morning your blood sugar might be going below normal without your knowledge while you are asleep. At this the internal mechanisms of body release anti insulin hormones and the morning blood sugar in fasting samples is raised. The doctors even somtimes get misguided by this and further increase the evening dose of insulin insead of reducing it. In your case the evening dose may be reduced by 2 units and afte about 1 week the fasting sample be rechecked. It should show normal or near normal level.

Hi doctor, can you pls tell me, if I am taking thyronorm 25 every day. What is the right way to take thyronorm 25? I mean empty stomach and with a full glass of water or can be taken with little water for better results? please tell me sir.

B.Sc. - Dietitics / Nutrition
Dietitian/Nutritionist, Mumbai
Hi , the amount of water will not have an impact on the end result' although as perhaps recommended by your doctor, best to have the thyroid medication first thing in the morning on an empty stomach. Work on your lifestyle--eat healthy meals, workout consistently and plug problematic behaviors. Doing this will ensure that your medication strength doesn't have to be increased. In fact, with the assistance and aid of your physician, you could even lower it if you manage to successfully increase your body's thyroid hormone function. Hope this helps. .

I am 49 yr old male dm2 + htn since 10 yrs. Pressure normal 130/ 80 with medication repace 25mg + stamlo (amlodipine) 2.5mg and blood glucose control pp 120 with zoryl 1mg at the time of break fast but fasting readings vary between 6.5 - 7.5. I take metformin extended release 1000mg after supper. But the fasting readings never fall below 6.5. I am sports enthusiast and play badminton thrice a week at expert level. With exercise in the evening the reading tend to rise as my intake goes up. Please advise me any long acting glucose control medicine for 24 hrs control well within 5.8. My hb1ac has always been well below 7.0 mostly remains 6.5. If hb1ac readings are well with in the range can ignore the fasting readings or is it equally important to maintain the fasting reading below 5.8 to prevent cardiac issues later. I also take cholesterol lowering drug fibator - half tab to maintain my ldl well below 80. Should you need any further details please write to me. Last but not the least use of sulfonylurea antidiabetic drug in the morning some cause hypo close to lunch time. I am worried of the side effects of this drug in long term. Kindly advise me alternate if any to this. My staple food is rice with daal, curry and curds. Pure veg

Looking at your details it appears your diabetes is in check. Slight high fasting is no problem. Nowadays hba1c level is looked at as guideline to assess control. You need not change anything. If pp levels go up can add voglibose 0.3 mg three times with each meal. Otherwise you are doing well. While playing if you feel levels are low always carry candy or gluco tabs.

Please take your mother to a Proper Diabetologist or Physician and take Proper Allopathic Medicines. Please don't do all these experiments with other forms of medicines. These days there are lots of different medicines which claim to reduce Diabetes, but there is no scientific evidence to prove thisthis. Also if you want proper advice please mention Fasting - PP Sugar levels and HbA1c test levels when you ask questions. Diabetes can be controlled/managed by a proper regulated diet. 3. Avoid all forms of simple sugars like Colas, juices, sweets, biscuits, cakes etc. 5. Eat every two hours small meals/snacks. Take more green vegetables/salads. 6. Eat lot of proteins like dals, sprouts, egg, chicken etc. 7. Take chapatis made of multigrain atta. 8. Drink lot of water. 9. Take these herbs which are known to improve sugar levels - tulsi, cinnamon, karela, flax seeds. 10. Do at least 30 mins of walk everyday.
