Hello, if your mother has Type 1 Diabetes then there are good chances of the inheritance, you may catch it in the early age. If your mother is having type 2 Diabetes then there are chances of the inheritance but you can save yourself with the modification of your life style. If you are following a good lifestyle then the chances of getting Diabetes are very lessen.

Mr. lybrate-user, RBS 102 mg is normal blood glucose level. If a persoe does not suffer with diabetes, then in his body Insulin takes care of glucose metabolism effectively. Only thing is one should take a properly balanced diet avoiding too much of sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries, other bakey items and sweetened aerated drinks. Also refrain from alcohol and smoking. Exercise regularly so as to maintain normal weight. Thanks.

Diabetes in Pregnant women

Diabetes in Pregnant women

The incidence of gestational diabetes is on the rise. At present 10 to 17 percent of pregnant women are developing diabetes during pregnancy. The chances of this are more if the woman is obese or if she had gestational diabetes in her previous pregnancy or a big baby earlier or if there is a family history mother father or siblings of diabetes.

This can be prevented to a great extent if a woman has a healthy lifestyle. Exercising regularly and maintaining body weight before and during pregnancy will minimise the risks of having diabetes in pregnancy.

Treating Diabetes With Ayurveda

Treating Diabetes With Ayurveda

Diabetes is an abnormal condition where the sugar-level in humans are higher than usual. Ayurveda can be used efficiently in treating this condition. Madhumeha is the Ayurvedic term for diabetes. In Indian terms, diabetes is known to the common man as Prameha, which is said to be divided into 3 major types – Kapha, Pitta and Vata. Lack of exercise and intake of food having excess of snigdha, ushna and guru types are said to be the chief cause of prameha.

Along with drugs and medications, Ayurveda stresses on the importance of a balanced diet and exercise. The management modules that can be categorized are:

  1. Vyaayam (Exercise)
  2. Panchakarma (Procedures for Bio-purification)
  3. Pathya (Regulation in diet)
  4. The use of therapy (Medications)

The individual’s constitution highly affects the ayurvedic treatment of prameha. Some of them are:

  1. Obstruction in srothus
  2. Ahara and Vihara
  3. Dosha predominance of disease
  4. Hereditary factors
  5. The prakrithi of the patient
  6. Manasika Prakrithi
  7. Dooshya vitiation

Management of diabetes can be done using a variety of herbs. Some of them are:

  1. Vjaysar
  2. Eugenia jambolana (Jamun beej churna)
  3. Pterocarpus marsupium (Vijaysar churna)
  4. Ficus bengalensis (Nyagrodha twaka churna – banyan tree bark)
  5. Shilajeet
  6. Momordica chirantia Karvellaka (Karella – Bitter Gourd)
  7. Kirat tikata (Chirayata)
  8. Emblica officinalis (Amla)

It is possible that certain patients are unable to respond to insulin or hypoglemic medicines. In this case, an ayurvedic physician may prescribe some ayurvedic drugs such as:

  1. Dhatri Nisha
  2. Chandraprabha vati
  3. Vasant kusumakar rasa

Diabetes is not just a lack of insulin. It is the most probable cause is plain poor maintenance of your body. Its cure will need to include all of these things discussed. By doing all, diet, herbs, exercise and stress management, you can certainly take care of your Diabetes.

You should get yourself tested for diabetes. This includes a simple test of fasting blood glucose and a pp blood glucose (ie 1&1/2 to 2 hours after meal). If you do have diabetes, it is better to take medicines than develop complications. The dosage of medicines can be reduced with good healthy lifestyle.

Please use -- natural aphrodisiacs which can improve your libido and prevent premature ejaculation. This would include carrots, fennel seeds, celery, bananas, garlic, onion, ginger, shellfish, lettuce etc. - including these foods in your daily diet will ensure that you remain free from sexual problems, including premature ejaculation. Also take a dose of acid phos 1m/single dose and revert after 2 weeks. Stop taking agnus castus and damiaplant if this is not helping you.

I have blood sugar 130-170. Of late I have developed rashes in the body from scratching. In my thigh the spread is bigger. If it is due to sugar how many sugar patients get it. Remedy and reason please. Also my knee pains while climbing.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
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. 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.

Hello Mr. Lybrate-user. Your creatinine clearance is 51.5 ml/min according to the information provided by you. 50 ml/min is borderline and you need to take care of it. You have not mentioned whether you have any other co morbidities like diabetes and hypertension etc. If do then you must keep them in control to reduce the damage to the kidneys. You have to avoid red meat completely. But can have sea food as suggested by your physician. You need to do regular exercise control your weight. A simple walking for 30 mins morning and evening is sufficient. Check your creatinine and urea levels regularly and don't hesitate to consult physician immediately. Contact if need further assistance.
