I am suffering from diabetes for last 2 month please give me some treatment about this deasies.
The right thing for you is visit a doctor in person. There are many options to control and manage diabetes. Before you start on any treatment, correct your diet and lifestyle. Take up activity, yoga or any kind of exercise. Take time for yourself and find out what could have triggered your diabetes. In 99% of cases, some stressful event triggers onset of diabetes in a person. It is true for any disease for that matter and it has been proved each and every time in our clinics. Resolve that problem if you can. After having tried and tested various combinations of the above, if yet your sugar levels ars high, you can try homeopathy. We have been able to reverse the symptoms and reports and patients have gone back to no medicines - both allopathy and homeopathy. Give it a thought!

Early Morning: Green tea ( sugar less) Breakfast: non fried preparations/ whole wheat bread/ vegetable poha, upma, etc. / idli sambhar etc. Mid-Morning: Fruits ( avoid the carbohydrate rich fruits like grapes, banana, custard apple and watermelon) Lunch: 2 dry chapatti + sabji 1 katori + dal or skimmed curd – 1 katori + salad 1 katori Evening Snacks: Tea / Coffee sugarless + high fiber bis.

lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. The glucose levels mentioned (Fasting 220 mg & PP 340 mg) are very high. These can lead to serious complications of diabetes like neuropathy, kidney damage, problems with retina, peripheral blood vessels leading to affection of blood supply to lower limbs. It is clear that present medication is not adequate at all. There has to be re-look at the total treatment, plus your diet and extent of daily exercise. Plus looking at your weight and height with a BMI of 31.14 kgs/M2 you are having grade 1 obesity. Which is a major contributor for improper glucose control. Your ideal body weight should be 63 kgs, hence there is an extra 27 kg load. Another aspect which needs to be closely looked at is what is your "normal diet" also exercise. Therefore, if you are keen enough, please come in a private conversation (paid consultation) with following details: current fasting, PP glucose levels, HbA1c%, lipid profile, extent of daily exercise, dietary pattern and BP readings. Then I will be able to give specific guidance and even prescribe the drugs that may be needed. In this communication we are supposed to give only general guidelines, no prescriptions are allowed. If not then please contact a good diabetologist locally and get things under control. It is essential. Ideally fasting should be < 100 mg, PP 160 to 170 mg & HbA1c% <7. Thanks.

Hi drink some bitter gourd juice on an empty stomach each morning. First remove the seeds of two to three bitter gourds and use a juicer to extract the juice. Add some water and then drink it. Follow this treatment daily in the morning for at least two months. Take pranacharya diabeto and shilajeet capsule twice a day with water. Take vasant kusumakar ras twice a day. Avoid sweets. Take small meals in less time interval. Do pranayama early morning. Avoid alcohol consumption.

Abhraka Bhasma (Sataputa: Useful in diabetes and excessive urination. This can be used in several diseases with different adjuncts. DOSAGE: 1g = 4 doses. For excessive heat and dry cough, add equal quantity of sithopaladichurna and use one dose both morning and evening with sugar. But personally I feel allopathy mesicines are best for treating diabates.

Mr. Lybrate-user, your blood sugar values particularly the fasting is much high. Pp value is not that bad, but better to be closer to 150 to 160 mg. Most importantly hba1c% should be <7. Achieving these values is possible by following things: appropriate drugs and dosage adjustment, dietary restriction and regular exercise so as to maintain near normal weight. (ideal body weight = height in cms- 100 x 0.9 = kgs). Plus avoiding sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries, sweetened aerated drinks, high fat milk products and fructose corn syrup containing products as well as highly processed products. Also refrain from alcohol and smoking. Consume more of green leafy vegetables and salads and permitted fruits about 100 g a day. Daily exercise of at least 1 hour is a must.

Mr. lybrate-user K, Thanks for the query. Diabetes develops because a person has either less secretion of insulin or there is resistance to its action or both the conditions are present. Once diagnosed (with Fasting 126 mg and above, PP 200 mg and above & HbA1c% 6.5 and above), it can only be controlled by proper medication, diet and exercise. Plus maintaining near normal weight is also very essential. To control diabetes it is essential to adapt a modified lifestyle. Which means taking restricted diet, that gives exact amount of calories needed based on ideal body weight, extent of daily exercise, blood glucose levels. Refraining form alcohol and smoking. As regards efficacy of other alternative therapies being effective in controlling diabetes, well, there is no clinical evidence of it. Unfortunately lot of tall claims are made by some saying diabetes can be cured, which is totally untrue. If you still want to try then it is your choice. Thanks.

Unexplained Infertility - What Is It?

MBBS, MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology, DNB (Obstetrics and Gynecology), Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (MRCOG)

Unexplained Infertility - What Is It?

They say you need to have intercourse only once to get pregnant. However, this isn’t always the case. Many couples struggle for months and years trying to conceive a baby. The inability to get pregnant despite having unprotected sexual intercourse for over a year is defined as infertility. Infertility in women may be caused by a number of factors. This includes PCOS, ovulation disorders, side effects of medication, radiation etc.

However, in some cases, the cause of infertility may be difficult to pinpoint. In such cases, the patient may be diagnosed with unexplained infertility.

  • Unexplained infertility can be very frustrating as all your and your partner’s test results are normal. However, it is important to remember that modern medicine can only test for certain fertility factors. For example, there is no way to test the quality of an egg being released by the ovaries. Some of the other probable causes for unexplained infertility include nutritional deficiencies, low levels of cervical mucus, thyroid issues, hormonal imbalances, long-term use of medication etc.
  • Unexplained infertility is common amongst all infertility cases. In fact, according to some studies, it accounts for almost 50% of all infertility cases. Certain factors can increase the risk of unexplained infertility. Women over the age of 35 years are more susceptible to this type of infertility. Mild endometriosis could also contribute towards this condition. Stress is another factor that could influence unexplained infertility. In the case of unexplained infertility, conceiving a baby without treatment has a very low probability.
  • IVF or In Vitro Fertilization is the most common form of treatment for this type of infertility. Hormone treatment is the first stage of IVF. This causes the ovaries to produce multiple eggs instead of one egg. This medication is given in the form of injections. Just before these eggs are released from the ovaries, your doctor will harvest them. At the same time, the sperm will be collected from the male partner. These sperm cells will then be introduced to the harvested eggs in a laboratory so that the eggs may be fertilized. The fertilized eggs may be kept under observation for up to 5 days. Once the embryos are ready, one or more embryos will be transferred to the woman’s uterus. In most cases, up to three embryos are implanted. When it comes to unexplained infertility, IVF has a relatively high success rate. In case the IVF is not successful, you may choose to restart the process. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Gynaecologist.

Mr Jackey There is no evidence showing tea drinking leads to diabetes or aggravates it. In fact there are reports showing drinking bck tea 3 cups a day does help in reducing blood glucose. Particularly drinking decaffinated tea reduces diabetes risk by as much as 25%.
