Along with your mentioned medicine you must start some ayurvedic medicine. We provide you. For your better life and prevention of further damage of organs like kidney; eye only medicines given to you are not sufficient. Also go for regular check up of dm like hba1c every 3 months. We strongly recommend few medicines if you submit your detail history.

Mr. Lybrate-user, please understand clearly that diabetes once diagnosed is not curable. Because it is a disease caused either because of deficiency of insulin or resistance to its action or both. So unless drugs which help in producing insulin (oral anti diabetic - modern medicines) or insulin injections are given there is no way of controlling diabetes. So called cures are a falls propaganda. World over a lot of research is going on to find out a cure for this disease, but so far no success. If some one has made such a drug he/ she would be eligible for nobel prize. There are close to 7 crore diabetes mellitus patients in india. Had there been cure possible then things would have been totally different. Thanks.

I have hypo thyroid, gout and palpitations.Please tell.
In hypothyroidism hair fall is a common occurrence. It is usually the last symptom to be corrected after hypothyroidism is fully controlled. When tsh levels are between 3 to 4 milli units, then it is considered as good control. So please check tsh levels and see that those are brought to the expected value. Gout and palpitations are unconnected to hypothyroidism.

I don't know what medicines are you taking? how old is your diabetes? but if you want to control sugar with diet only then you should have one chapatti in breakfast, one fruit mid morning, 2 chapattis in lunch, one katori dal, one katori vegetable, one cup tea plus 2_3 marrie biscuits and 2 chapatti along with dal and veg in dinner. But alone this won't control, you will have to walk one hour morning and one hour evening. About other answers about diabetes is, if you don't control it, you can suffer from complications like heart disease, kidney disease, eye disease and nerves disease, which once occur then there is noug treatment. So control your diabetes with diet or drugs or exercise or all of three.

You need to increase medication for post meal sugar control. Alfa glucosidase inhibitors class of drugs like voglibose etc helps to control post meal sugars. Consult any diabetologist for adding them. Consume more complex carbohydrates and fibre in your diet so post meal sugar peaks will be less.

Can I take metride (2/500mg) in place of amaryl m (2/500mg)? I am a 62 yrs old diabetic person.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
If the combination is glimepirde 2 mg & metformin 500 you can definitely take it. Amoral is too expensive. Tab k -glim m2 (blue cross lab) is only 26 plus for 10 tabs you take any one of these instead of amaryl.

MBBS, MD - Internal Medicine
Internal Medicine Specialist, Faridabad
Go for tests first - lft,vit.B12,cbc, You can take Nutrient-rich foods that improve your health may also benefit your thyroid gland, antioxidant-rich fruits and vegetables more plenty of water: Blueberries, tomatoes, bell peppers, and other foods rich in antioxidants can improve overall health and benefit the thyroid gland. Eating foods high in B vitamins, like whole grains, may also help. Selenium: Tiny amounts of selenium are needed for enzymes that make thyroid hormones to work properly. Eating selenium-rich foods, such as sunflower seeds or Brazil nuts, can be beneficial. Tyrosine: This amino acid is used by the thyroid gland to produce T3 and T4. Taking a supplement may help, avoid alcohl if you take. pl. tell us reports of your thyroid .

I am diabetic from last 5 year's, now day's I get water from my left ear and my legs are also paining almost every evening. I am currently on medication, glycnorm m 40 tab twice a day. Please provide some solution, my age is 36. Or else please suggest.

Hello have you shown your problem to any ent surgeon because watering from ear looks unrelated to diabetes. Secondly I would like to know your fasting and after food blood sugar level plus hba1c level to guide properly. At your age it is essential to have a very tight blood sugar control, almost like a non diabetic. Please give above detail. Also I want to know your bmp and waist circumference. Plus your physical activity level. Also your lipid profile.
