Many years he is hypertensive and diabetic? which medicines is he taking for same? last 2 months blood pressure readings and sugar status? hba1c report? serum creatinine is 1.7? it might be due to long standing diabetes. Get done fundus examination by ophthalmologist also to see effect of diabetes on eyes and check urine albumin level too. Revert back with all these and I will advise you what to do to slow progression of this kidney involvement in diabetes and tune up his medications.

My mother has diabetes from last 10 years. please advice how to take care of her.?
Hello , please follow the doctor prescribed medicine. Which controls the diabetics and will not allow to increase. But along with medication, she need to concentrate on food also. Make sure her food must have high protein, fiber and omega-3 nutrition. For a diabetics, its good to have more protein rather than carbohydrates, which converts into glucose and may have a chance to increase the diabetes. What we suggest is the nutrigemoic protein, who certified, with 9 essential amino acids. This will help her to cure diabetics. But you will definitely have a result, if you can use protein with vitamins and minerals, fiber and omega-3 supplements,

How to solve the problem of uric acid and swelling which is caused by eating protein diet?
High uric acid level can be caused when human body either produces too much uric acid or your kidneys do not eliminate uric acid rapidly enough. A high uric acid level may cause increasingly frequent attacks of gout. 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. Factors that may cause a high uric acid level in your blood include: Diuretic medications , Drinking too much alcohol, Genetics disorder , hypothyroidism , Immune-suppressing drugs, Niacin, or vitamin B-3, obesity, psoriasis, Purine-rich diet — organ meat, dried beans, driedpeas, mushrooms and other foods 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. Do test KFT every 6 months to monitor levels of it. Take tab. Zyloric 100 mg once a day. Tab. Ulracet sos for pain in joints .

Dear lybrate-user, improve your diet, timing of diet. Avoid smoking and alcohol. Avoid fried items. Don't lie down soon after meals. Have omez only when you get acidity. Long term use of omez may lead to bone thinning or osteoporosis. Check the list of medicines and remove offending agent with help of your doctor. Long standard diabetes leads to gastroparesis or slow move of stomach which leads to acid reflux. Discuss this with your doctor.

Mr. Lybrate-user, for controlling diabetes effectively you need specific drugs belonging to modern medicine either oral anti - diabetics or insulin injections. The one mentioned by you, is not at all effective. That particular tablet has been only tried on rats in the lab, there too its effectiveness has been about 67%, which as good as a placebo. No human trials are done, there is no safety data on human beings. I will not recommend this tablet to any diabetes patient. When good control is achieves fasting should be closer to 100mg, pp 150 to 160 mg/100ml and hba1c%<6.8. So you need to shift to appropriate treatment right away. Otherwise you are inviting long term serious complications of diabetes related to every single vital organ in the body. Choice is yours.

Have courage. Modern medical science has made great strides in management of diabetes. There is no known scientific cure as on today. But with proper diet as advised by treating doctor, daily light exercise like walking, swimming sports etc and proper medication as advised followed by repeated monitoring, regular review by your doctor will help in good control this way you can avoid or postpone the usual complications of diabetes. Keep increasing your health education and knowledge about diabetes by all possible means. Keep away from short cuts and unscientific remedies. Best wishes.

Hi Sandhya and Vivek, you should avoid pineapple and papaya in pregnancy. Rest of the fruit you can take. Have red coloured dry fruits like fig, almonds ,walnut, kismis. Please continue thyroid medicine. And repeat TSH levels after 1month.

I have a question about my diabetes. I am suffering from hypertension since 6 years & Diabetes from 2.5 years and take tablets for both diseases in morning. For diabetes I take glimepiride 2 mg + Metformin 500 mg prescribed by doctor. My query is dat when I test my pp sugar after 2 hours of meals it comes around 240 but when I again test after 3 hours of meals (1 hour after pp sugar test), it comes around 150. Means the value of pp sugar test which should come after 2 hours of meals generally comes after 3 hours of meals. Is this ok or should I need further tests or medicine changes.

Dear Ashish, I acknowledge and appreciate this keep observation by you. This is what commonly occurs in Type-2 diabetes. This is reflective of the body's inability to handle the high glucose load of the meals taken due to insulin resistance which leads to higher than desired post meal blood glucose levels. Yes we need to adjust your medicines for this as this is not desirable and can lead to end organ damage in the body. As per lybrate policy, I cannot post medicine prescription in public forum, hence pls get back to me privately

Once diabetes is fully developed then drug treatment is absolutely essential. In prediabetes condition it can be controlled by diet and exercise. (pre - diabetes is fasting between 108 to 125 mg/100 ml & pp 141 to 199 mg/100ml. Once fasting crosses 126 mg and pp 200 and above, diabetes is confirmed, in this situation treatment is absolutely necessary. Drinking karela and neem juice has really no bearing on controlling blood sugar.

Dear lybrate user, one of the major nutritional substance required for human body is carbohydrate. We take carbohydrate in the form of rice, wheat, sugar etc. The complex molecules of carbohydrate are broken down into simple glucose molecules during digestion & released in the blood stream to be absorbed by the muscle cells. Insulin hormone plays a vital role in the absorption of the glucose molecules by the muscle cells. In abnormal conditions, either due to less production of insulin or due to resistance to insulin, the process of absorption of glucose by the muscles comes to a stand still. The glucose molecules remains in the bloodstream which results in the increase in the blood sugar level. This abnormal condition is clinically known as diabetes mellitus. Once a patient is diagnosed with diabetes he has to take regular medicine to keep his blood sugar level within normal limits. Take homoeopathic mother tincture gymnemna sylvestra q, 30 drops, thrice daily, after meals, in a cup of water. Also you need to walk at least 1 hour daily without any interval. Also you need to take a low carbohydrate rich diet. Avoid rice, sweet dishes, fruits, cold drinks, fast foods, alcoholic beverages, potato etc.
