Diabetes is a condition where the body cannot breakdown excess sugar in the body resulting in high blood sugar levels which is harmful to a lot of organs. Medicine depends upon your presenting symptoms/age/co-morbidities/etc. A stress free life with a healthy diet and daily exercise schedule will help you prevent it for as long as possible.

Dear lybrate user we can very well address your concern regarding your wife's hypothyroidism. It could had been better had you provided us with her latest tsh reports for better understanding of the situation. Try to understand that this is due to deficiency of thyroid hormone because of underfunctioning gland. The treatment of which is hormone replacement which you are doing in the form of tab thyroxine. Will suggest to keep monitoring her tsh levels on a regular basis and not to go for any other alternative therapy. Hope this helps and solves your query. Anything more then please feel free to revert.

There is no improvement may mean that your blood sugars are not under control. Abdominal upset may direct restriction in the use of metformin. Please AVOID HONEY . Your Complete examination is required before starting of medicines. Continue blood thinners and anti cholesterol tablets. Get a Diabetologist consultation as early as possible

To control & maintain Blood pressure to normal these are best methods to follow:.• Do physical exercise like jogging, running or brisk walk for atleast 20-30 minutes. • Maintain your cholesterol level to normal & eat least amount of butter, cream or fatty things. • Eat less amount of pickle, salt and fast food as they contain high sodium levels. • Avoid drinking alcohol and smoking. • Take less amount of caffine containing coffee, tea or cold drinks because caffine causes increase BP. • Drink 8 to 10 glass of water daily • Take 6 to 8 hrs of sleep daily. Do not take too much stress. • Do long breathing pranayams (Anulom- Vilom, Bhramari) daily for 10 - 15 minutes. It will reduce your stress level in your body. • Eat healthy diet such as green leafy vegetables, fruits. • Take 5 ml of GULAB Jal added in a glass of water daily once a day.

In ayurveda its called kashtsaadhya. You have to continue taking medicine to manage levels of sugar. The only difference between ayurvedic herbs and allopathic is that with former you will not get any side effects like neuropathy, retinopathy etc and if acquired already, it will start receding in 6-8 weeks. But you can't stop allopathy atonce. May gradually increase herbals and reduce allopathic. Initially parallels will have to be taken. Constant monitoring will educate you at what level balance of ayurveda or allopathy is to be kept. You will be the best judge. Parallel treatment with ayurveda will not harm you. No interaction ever. May be if it suits you, you may continue only herbals rest of your life with betterment. But it is easier said than done. Do patiently and adopt pranayam too.

Loose your extra weight. Moongdal sprouts are good for diabetes and obesity and thyroid. Take lukewarm water with half spoon methidana powder in the morning. You can take coconut water. Except fruit juice you should eat complete fruit because it contain fibers which is good for a diabetics. Chapattis of bran flour (unrefined) is given to diabetes patients and to increase nutrition value add gram flour. In breakfast -vegetable daliya, poha, upma, oats, cornflacks you can take it. And one cup skim milk without sugar.

Mr Selvamani, If you have confirmed T2 DM, then there is no way that can be controlled without medicine. In prediabetic condition one can control that without medicine and postpone getting diabetes. But once a person gets it then drug treatment is essential. Plus you have to exercise daily for at least 1 hour and take a restricted diet that provides exact calories based on ideal body weight. You should avoid sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries, sweetened aerated drinks, canned fruit juices, ghee, butter and high fat cheese. Consume more of green leafy vegetables and salads. This routine will help in better control of blood sugar.
