I used to go to office at 12pm by bike. Office is located 22km away from my home. Now a days I am getting some patches in my hands (no color change and itching). I am sure this is due to sun since it occur where sunlight directly fall. Please suggest me some medicine.

Dear lybrateuser, - The acidity could be due to the masala oats, take a brand without masala, mix it in a bowl of milk & have it , you can add fresh fruits to make it more nutritious.

Is bipolar 3 completely treatable and patient returns to normal routine most of his life?

Fellow Observership, Certificate in Forensic Psychology, MD-Psychiatry, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Akola
Hello, in general bipolar disorder (irrespective of 1, 2, 3) are not completely curable. But with proper course of medicines & lifestyle management, one can lead a very healthy & productive life. In general, we advise 5 years of continued medicines for bipolar disorder. If patient remains symptom free for 5 years, we attempt to reduce & stop medicines. If during this period, symptoms return, then medicines are continued lifelong. Hope this helps. Good luck.

Hello ulcers can be caused due to unbalanced diet, stress, trauma or hormonal imbalance. In your case acidity can be one factor. So get treatment for that, drink lots of water, take some multivitamins and lastly apply oral gel on ulcers for immediate relief take care.

Diabetes affects all organs in the body – Eyes, kidneys, nerves, reproductive system all are affected, In fact, from toe to hair. For diabetic control, patient and doctor should be n constant touch for regular follow up and advice. It is not as easy task to control blood sugar in the desired normal range. Whatever we eat is metabolised to sugar in the body to provide energy for our daily activities. For the absolute control, one has to monitor his / her blood sugar at regular intervals (Self-Monitoring of Blood glucose – SMBG). Though difficult, this can be done by a glucometer and keep a record. Get an idea of Fasting sugar (FBS) and 2 hours after food (PPBS) and check before dinner and after every major food. The basic idea is to reduce the food intake to 1/3 of what you take now. The dictum of sugar control is diet, exercise, diet + medicine and at later stage medicine+ Insulin will be needed. There are different diet plans of varying calories for each person depending on his activity & life style. For sugar control there is the need for regular advice and follow up. Just one time consultation or advice is not enough to guide a diabetic in scientifically & medically correct manner. For giving you regular follow up you ask me privately with all details like your daily eating pattern and medicines you take. I assure you a proper guidance... if you keep in touch. www.lybrate.com/drsajeev
