I'm diabetic. I check my sugar regularly. Keep diet control but don't take medicine. In one month about 5 to 6 times my sugar spikes to 250. It comes to normal in 3-4 hours when I drink 1500 ml water. My only concern is shall I take medicine? My all other tests Renal, liver, lipid are normal. Only I hv gone thin. I'm 47 years old.

Probably your diet is not proper.you need to reschedule your timings and control on the portion size of food.take small frequent meals with a watch on the carbohydrate content of the meal.u need to meet a Dietician for the same. If the diet is unable to control the sugars,then medicine may become necessary

Check your hba1c level. And at this stage, aim for dietary changes and weight loss to bring about a significant change in your levels. Start slowly and gradually. You are already on a high dose of oral medicines.

In general, most cases of fatigue \weakness may be attributed to three areas: lifestyle factors, medical conditions or psychological problems. A thorough assessment is needed in all three factors to get to the actual cause of weakness. I being a both a registered dietitian and doctor have been successfully helping patients with their problems through a holistic approach using customized therapeutic diet and medications.

Right now your levels are very high. Immediately consult your diabetologist for any revision of your medicines. Completely avoid nonveg, rice, a nod fruits in your diet at present.

Tender guava leaf juice aloe vera green tea cinnamon black jamun seed extract methi seed powder drumstick leaf powder flaxseed powder amla neem flower tea multi grains wheat germ and bran lemon grass wheat grass quinoa are some of the foods which definitely control diabetes. Take personalised dietary expert advice. Thank you.

Mr. Lybrate-user, diabetes mellitus is occurring due to either lack of insulin or resistance to its action, so the treatment is to make that hormone available by increasing the secretion from islets of langerhans in pancreas or provide insulin from outside. Insulin is required constantly in the body for glucose, protein and fat metabolism. So it has to be made available daily. Hence there is no cure. It can only be controlled by drugs, diet and exercise.

Parkinsons disease is a neuro degenerative disease. Unfortunately there is no permanent treatment for this condition. For initial symptom relief doctors give anticholinergics, antihistaminics, but latter dopamine agonists or dopamine precursures (levodopa) is needed. I your case, it appears to be an early onset and already advanced case of parkinsonism which is associates with high grade dementia, rigidity, tremour, inability to walk. In this condition levodopa+carbidopa/benserazide-. 4-. 8g/day or ropinirole or pramiprexole might be needed. Along with that, regular physiotherapy will help a bit. Proper nurshing care may be needed. Thank you. Take care.

Dietitian/Nutritionist,
My sugar is high.
So what can I do?
Hi, I am a registered dietitian, certified diabetes educator and a doctor (general physician) who will help you in your diabetes problem. Do let me know your hba1c value? also you need to provide me your daily food intake details. There are many lifestyle and dietary guidelines that can be followed: take high fiber prescribed diet which includes soluble fibre like apple, isabgol etc. Get more physical activity by prescription from a registered dietitian eat a balanced diet which includes whole grains and excludes all refined products like maida as prescribed by a registered dietitian, if you're overweight, diabetes prevention may hinge on weight loss. Every pound you lose can improve your health, and you may be surprised by how much. Participants in one large study who lost a modest amount of weight around 7 percent of initial body weight and exercised regularly reduced the risk of developing diabetes by almost 60 percent. I being a registered dietitian and doctor have been successfully helping patients with their diabetes problem. I will also prescribe medicines that will speed up the time to achieve your weight management goals. Do reply back for private consultation.
