Hi lybrate-user, I first have to warn you that you should not take antibiotics and get blood test done without consulting a doctor--please never do that in furture. Coming to your fever----taking dolo 650 is fine. If still fever add tablet ibuprofen 400 mg thrice daily. Any other problems like cough, cold, throat pain, pain passing urine etc? if none of above then it could just be viral fever--take tablets nd plenty of fluids if any problem as above consult a doctor and donot take antibiotics.

I am mske 45 diabetic since last 10 years. I always feels tired. I am taking diapride m2 twice daily and humalog 70/30 insulin 30 point morning and 20 in evening. My fasting is 170.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Your diabetes is not under control which is why you feel tired. Check your fbs, 2hr ppbs and hba1c from a good lab and inform privately. Now you make humalog 30 units in the night also and take glucomet sr 1 gm twice daily and glimi 2 mg once in the morning and report. Did you mean diapride m2 two tabs in the morning, which is incorrect dosage.(that is 4 mg glimipride and 500 metformin) 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. I assure you a proper guidance. If you keep in touch.

Normal Uric acid levels are 2.4-6.0 mg/dL (female) and 3.4-7.0 mg/dL (male) Some diets that are rich in purine end up causing an increased production of uric acid. In other cases, it may be due to a completely sedentary lifestyle. Less intake of water also may be to blame in some cases as water plays an important role in washing out the excess of the uric acid. Regular usage of some medicines also cause the uric acid levels to rise. Another important factor is being overweight as obese people are much more likely to get gout as compared to those who have normal weight. It is a tragedy of the modern world that the superior advertising and marketing power of the allopathic system of medicine has eclipsed the good and genuine work of Homeopathy. This is largely because Homeopathic system of medicine cannot compete with the money power of Allopathy. Just because allopathy does not have any cure for gout, patients tend to think that there is no cure for gout at all. People are not aware of the great work that Homeopathy can do in the cure of gout. I cannot stress enough here that homeopathic medicines are pretty effective at curing the acute as well as the chronic gout You can easily take an online consultation for further treatment guidance and permanent cure without any side effects

Ayurveda and Gestational Diabetes

BSc

Ayurveda and Gestational Diabetes

Diabetes during pregnancy is known as gestational diabetes. It is interesting to note that the chances of getting gestational diabetes, is one of the most common complication of pregnancy. It has increased by almost 40%. Also, gestational diabetes not only affects the health of the mother, but also the health of the baby. What usually happens with gestational diabetes is that the blood sugar level, of both the mother and the baby go above the normal level.

Ayurveda can help treat this disease. Here are the most common Ayurveda remedies for gestational diabetes.

  1. Gurmaar: Gurmaar, called "The Sugar Killer" is also known as Gymnema sylvestre in medical jargon. Gurmaar also contains gymnemic acid molecules, which are crucial because they have an anti-diabetic effect. They work by combining with glucose molecules, which are in the blood stream. These stop the glucose from entering the bloodstream. 
  2. Karela: Karela is commonly known as bitter gourd and its biological name is Momordica charantia. It has anti-diabetic properties and also contains many other micronutrients, which are crucial in preventing the complications which arise from gestational diabetes.
  3. Vizaysaar: Vizaysaar comes from the bark of a tree whose biological name is Pterocarpus marsupium. It is very useful for diabetes. If you immerse the wood of Vizaysaar in water overnight and then drink it, your blood sugar levels are expected to fall.
  4. Saptrangi: Saptrangi is biologically known as Salacia oblonga. Just like Vizaysaar, it is a tree whose bark is immersed in water and then drunk by the patient suffering from diabetes. You will know that the water is ready for drinking when it turns brown, which usually happens overnight. It is also being studied in Western herbal schools in addition to Ayurveda nowadays.
  5. Tulsi: Tulsi is a holy plant in Hindu mythology and is known as Ocimum sanctum in biological terms. It is worshiped as a holy plant because it has tremendous medicinal properties including treating many types of cancers, cough, cold, sore throat as well as reducing blood sugar.
  6. Ashwagandha: The medical name for ashwagandha is Withania somnifera. It is another great remedy for diabetes.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. When on treatment with levothyroxine TSH should be maintained <3 mU/L to be totally free from all the symptoms of hypothyroidism. Please tell me whether your weight was same before being diagnosed with hypothyroidism? Because at the time of diagnosis TSH was 100 mU/L, means you must have been having the condition for a long time and that has contributed for excess weight gain. Now you have a BMI of 31.66 kgs/M2 (normal <23 kgs). The dosage that you were taking it self appears less that that was needed. Only soy beans and soy containing products need to be avoided. Plus there has to be a restricted diet giving calories based on your ideal body weight (55 kgs). Plus you will have to exercise regularly for at least one hour every day. Dosage of thyroxine has to be properly calculated. Thanks.

Hello I'm a sugar patient, help me how to control My sugar level through home remedies.
Mr Shyam, If you have T2 DM mellitus then it is very essential to take proper drug treatment either with oral anti diabetes drugs or Insulin or both depending on severity of blood sugar levels. Home remedies if used may benefit only as added therapies. So it is necessary to treat firs with proper medicines.
