If someone suffering diabetes and treatment is going in order to reduce the sugar by providing insulin and other precaution are also taken but the sugar level does not reduces. How to reduce the sugar level?

Hello lybrate user I will begin this answer by stating that there is no such thing as an uncontrollable sugar. Sometimes it is believed that sugars can be uncontrollable because there is a maximal dose of insulin. But I would like to dispel this doubt and tell you there is no such thing as a maximal dose of insulin and the amount of insulin being given to a patient can be escalated to an optimal level so that the blood sugar target is achieved. Also, the following approach of treat to target in the case of diabetes is very important because if the patient is taking the medicine suboptimally then sugars might be slightly controlled but till the point of time that they're completely controlled a patient cannot draw the benefits out of the treatment. What I basically implying is that in the case of diabetes treatment with uncontrolled sugars is almost as bad as no treatment. Hence from your case as I understand that the patient is already on insulin and the only logical thing to do is to escalate the level of insurance so that the sugars are optimally controlled.

Hello, self-care measures can help ease the pain of a migraine headache. Try muscle relaxation exercises. Relaxation techniques may include progressive muscle relaxation, meditation or yoga. Get enough sleep, but don't oversleep. Get an adequate amount of sleep each night. It's best to go to bed and wake up at regular times, as well. If possible, rest in a dark, quiet room when you feel a headache coming on. Place an ice pack wrapped in a cloth on the back of your neck and apply gentle pressure to painful areas on your scalp. Medication: take bakson's mig-aid tablet/ 1 tablet 3 times a day.

I have a small penis. But I can enjoy my masturbation. BT I can't satisfy women with a small cock so what should I do.
A “micropenis” is medically defined. A micropenis: 1. Occurs in approximately 0.6% of men, 2. Has an erect length smaller than 3 inches, for an adult male, 3. Is a fully-functioning penis, In my routine practise I have come across many cases of small Penis and in 80 % cases the reason was the same and that was H/o Masturbation frequently or sexual excesses along with Early ejaculation and erection problems. If yours is also such kind of a case then please feel free to consult me as myself being a homoeopathic physician with a experience of 20 years can assure you that your problem of small penis or any other problem regarding sex will be permanently cured with some very effective homoeopathic treatment and management. You can also purchase my PENIS ENLARGEMENT Package available on Lybrate for far better and effective results which includes ------ 1.

Mr narasimham, I am sure you must learnt by now, that diabetes is a disease that remains with us for life time. It can only be controlled by proper drugs, restricted diet and exercise. There is no other way at least for now world over. So please continue your treatment regularly, that is the only option.

Exercises for Losing Belly Fat Some very simple but effective exercises to lose belly fat: Stretch 1 – Lie down on a floor mat. Position your legs vertically up and stay in this position for 5 to 15 seconds. This can be repeated thrice. Stretch 2 – Lie down on a floor mat. Stretch your legs straight. Place your hands behind your head and lock your fingers. Now raise your torso and bring it towards your knees. Stay in this position for 5 to 10 seconds and slowly return to your lying position. Repeat this for 15 times in sets of 5. Stretch on Chair – Lie down on a floor mat and position yourself with a chair so as to raise your legs on the chair. Your legs should be at 90 degree to the rest of your body. Place your hands behind your head and clasp your fingers. Now lift your torso and rise up as if you want to touch the knees. Continue for 15 minutes and repeat in sets of 3 or 4. Cycling – Lie down on a floor mat. Raise your legs and rotate them as if you are pedalling a cycle vigorously. Repeat the exercise for five minutes in sets of three. Breathing Exercises to Lose Belly Fat Let us briefly understand on how these work. Oxygen acts as fuel for the body. The extra oxygen that you inhale while performing the breathing exercises result in certain chemical reactions that in turn burns up more calories than you actually take in. You lose extra fat. Pavanmuktasan – for practising Pavanmuktasan, take a deep breath as you lie on your back. Bend you left knee, hold your toes and pull it towards your stomach. Simultaneously lift your head and touch your bent knee. Your other leg must be straight. Breathe in and count ten. Return to your original position and breathe out. Repeat the set with your right leg. Bhujangasan – for practising Bhujangasan lie on your stomach and place your hands under your shoulders. Lift your torso backwards using only the back muscles and not your hands. Hold your breath for 5-10 seconds and slowly return to your original position as you breathe out. Dhanurasan – Lie on your stomach and bend your knees. Hold your ankles as you breathe in. Push your body outwards in the shape of a bow and pull your head back as much as possible. Hold this position for 10 seconds and release the posture as you slowly breathe out. Apart from these there are aerobics that also help you to lose belly fat. Regular simple workouts like jogging, walking up and down through the stairs fast also helps to shed those stubborn belly fat. But remember, it is always advisable to seek the advice of a fitness instructor before you decide as exercise regimen for yourself in order to get the maximum results.

Sexual Intercourse: It's Good for Your Health!

Sexual Intercourse: It's Good for Your Health!
The act of procreation is both important and enjoyable, but according to several recent studies, it also has quite a few health benefits. These are 12 reasons why you should be having sexual relations on a more regular basis.

1. Orgasms increase the blood flow to the whole brain, making it a better mental exercise than a crossword puzzle.

2. Intercourse causes the brain to release a steroid called DHEA – a main contributor to staying young. Couples who engage in sexual activities 3 times a week look 10 years younger on average.

3. Intercourse can help relieve period symptoms, thanks to the muscle contractions that occur during an orgasm. Furthermore, researchers from Columbia and Stanford found that women who have relations at least once a week enjoy more predictable cycles.

4. According to Women’s Health Magazine, vaginal stimulation can relieve chronic back pains, leg pains, headaches and migraines.

5. The Lifestyle Mirror recently interviewed Dr. Elizabeth Tanzi, who said that “Regular sex increases blood flow and decreases stress hormones in the body, and those stress hormones wreak havoc on the skin.”

6. Having intercourse in the morning was found to boost both our mood and our immune system.

7. According to the U.S. National Library of Medicine, people who engage in penile-vaginal intercourse enjoy much lower blood pressure.

8. After intercourse, the level of oxytocin (the “love hormone”) in men is elevated. Men with elevated oxytocin levels are less likely to “stray”, which means that having relations literally makes men stay in a relationship.

9. Men who ejaculate more often are less likely to develop prostate cancer.

10. Intercourse boosts the levels of immunoglobulin – an antibody that protects us from the common cold and the flu.

11. Sexual activity burns calories like a moderate exercise session. For every minute spent ‘doing it’, men burn 4 calories and women burn 3.

12. According to Dr. Joseph Mercola, men who have relations on a regular basis are 45% less likely to develop life-threatening heart conditions.

Is there any side effects of taking sugar free pills instead of sugar in daily routine?

Is there any side effects of taking sugar free pills instead of sugar in daily routine?
Sugar-free pills have till date not undergone any major human study trial. By doing human study trial we ascertain the benefits and risks of any agent on scientific basis. So in reality everybody is consuming these sweeteners on the basis of animal trials !
