You are suffering this because diabetes has taken a toll on your immunity. You need to strengthen your immunity and have better control over blood sugar. Ayurvedic tablets can do that without any side effects. Kindly let me know your age, height and weight so as to arrive at perfect prescription. Regards Dr. Omkar shahapurkar

Mr. lybrate-user, For diabetes only known medicines are from modern medicines. Others are claimed to be beneficial, but not proven clinically. May be helpful as an additional therapy. Hence, if strict control of blood glucose has to be achieved then appropriate medication in correct dose is a must. Plus diet and exercise also play equally important role. Thanks.

I'm about to have my first Intrauterine insemination (IUI) on coming Monday. Doctor told me to get it done under general anaesthesia. But today she told me to get done under IV sedation. I don't understand anything. What is the difference between GA & IV sedation? Will I feel any pain & discomfort under IV sedation? Please reply me and clear my fear.

Hi lybrate-user Under GA you will completely loose consciousness. Under IV sedation your pain sensation is reduced by 50-70% based on the medications given. IUI is a fairly painless procedure. 85% of the women don't require any sedation. So not to worry.

Diabetes can occur at any age. There are two main types t1 dm which usually starts at a younger age including early childhood. T2dm earlier called late onset diabetes, starts at a later age. Earlier we used to see this condition in persons above 40 yrs. However, now a days it often starts even tean age. T1 is auto immune type disease.

You take 3 big meals n 2 small meals between 3 big meals. In morning take 1 glass of lukeworm water with 1/2 spoon methidana powder its helps to control blood sugar level. Then walk for 45 min. Tea without sugar with biscuits (digestive marrie / marrie gold) after 1 hr you take breakfast like daliya, oats, upma, sprouts. In midmorning take any fruit except banana, cheeku, grapes. In lunch take 1- 1/2 chapati, dal, salad, vegetables and curd. Then snacks then dinner n don't take rice.

My father have diabetes in 2 year what should I do?

Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)
Ayurveda,
My father have diabetes in 2 year what should I do?
Without knowing complete medical history and current status of disease, its unfair to comment. Common thing is do walks/ yoga, pranayam and meditation and take herbal support in addition to current med. If response is good, may switch to alternative pathy. Any pathy you take, generally may go for life. Herbal will be without side effect.

Mr. lybrate-user, If you have not yet started treatment for diabetes, then please start immediately. There is no option. Along with drugs, take a planned restricted diet and exercise regularly for 1 hour a day. Diabetes is confirmed when FBS >126 mg, or PP >200 mg and HbA1c%>6.5. Thanks.

Mr. Lybrate-user, when a person has diabetes, he/she has to take proper medicine to control blood sugar first. Then exercise and restricted diet are also equally important in helping better blood sugar control. Only exercise will not be able to reduce blood sugar. Only treatment available for diabetes is either oral anti diabetic drugs (modern medicine) or insulin injection. Other than these, there is no way to control diabetes.

Mr. Lybrate-user, it shows that diabetes is not in control, there is no mention about hba1c%, which gives an idea about last three months blood sugar control. It is essential to achieve better sugar control because high sugar level affects every single vital organ and damages it. You should also get the eves checked to see if there is retinal involvement. Your current treatment is not helping in proper control, it needs to be improved, either additional drug increasing dosage. Plus a good look has to be given towards diet and exercise. With regards.

7 Skin Problems Diabetes Gives You

7 Skin Problems Diabetes Gives You

7 Diabetes Related Skin Problems

Diabetes is a metabolic disorder, chiefly caused by insulin fluctuation in the body. A study shows that, 1 out of 3 people suffering from diabetes are likely to develop a skin condition sooner or later; and in some cases, these skin problems serve as symptoms of diabetes. Although these skin problems can be cured easily if treated early, proper care must be administered at all times. Here are 7 skin conditions that affect diabetics:

1. Bacterial infection

Although anyone can get a bacterial infection, people suffering from diabetes are likelier to contract them. Usual bacterial skin problems that tend to trouble diabetics are boils, lumps near the eyelids, nail infections and carbuncles. Diabetics are also prone to infections deep in the skin and of the underlying tissues. The affected area is usually warm, red and swollen.

2. Fungal infections

People who have diabetes have an increased risk of contracting the fungal infection, especially the one known as candida Albicans. The fungus tends to create a red, itchy rash, which is surrounded by blisters and scales. These are usually found in warm places of the body like the armpits, or between the fingers of the hand or perhaps even the toes. Common fungal infections in diabetic people include athlete's foot, jock itch and ringworm.

3. Tingling and itching

Among the many causes of itching, diabetes is one. Yeast infection, dry skin and poor circulation are the primary causes of itching among patients of diabetes. Usually, the lower part of the leg tends to itch the most, if poor circulation is to be blamed.

4. Skin problems related to neuropathy

Diabetes can be the cause of nerve damage in some cases; and neuropathy is a common symptom of diabetes. This type of damage can cause a loss of sensation in a part of the body. On event of an injury, one may not be able to feel it. As a result, an open sore or wound, if left unattended, can develop into an infection.

5. Digital sclerosis

Digital sclerosis, a condition marked by tight, waxy, thick skin that develops on the back of the hand, is common among people who have type 1 diabetes. In this condition, the joints of the fingers get stiff and, thus, lose their mobility and elasticity. Skin of the toes, forehead and knees may also get affected.

6) Xerosis

Xerosis is another common skin condition that accompanies diabetes. In this condition, the skin becomes very dry and itchy.

7) Acanthosis nigricans

Acanthosis nigricans is the condition where diabetics get darkening of skin leading to skin tags around neck and armpits.

I am 41 years old. Kindly tell me is obemac is safe to use. Or it has some side effects? I am a hyper thyroid patient. please suggest soon.

PDDM, MHA, MBBS
General Physician, Nashik
Thanks for the query. Obemac is a fat burner. But, most fat burners in my experience have majorly not worked. Most people take it as a “trial and error” product meaning that they only find out that most often it's not really effective after trying it. Keep in mind that obemac is not recommended for people with cardiac problems. Most people claim to have experience little or no difference at all after using a fat burner. Like any fat burner there are chances of side effects. Give your body a chance to lose weight by natural and healthy ways. That's more lasting.
