Hello, take syzygium 1x, 2 tabs, twice daily, before meals. 1. Take karela jamun ras from swadeshi brand. 2. Powdered cinnamon has the ability to lower blood sugar levels by stimulating insulin activity. It contains bioactive components that can help prevent and fight diabetes. 3. Soak two tablespoons of fenugreek seeds in water overnight. Drink the water along with the seeds in the morning on an empty stomach. Follow this remedy without fail for a few months to bring down your glucose level. Another option is to eat two tablespoons of powdered fenugreek seeds daily with milk.

Being discipline in daily routine is a good habit which will support the body to work at its best. Avoid outside food (junk /processed food/ beverages) or restrict it to occasional events. Drink enough water (at least 8-10 glasses of water) and do not overeat. A healthy lifestyle is the basic foundation for living healthy. She can learn yoga which is holistic in its approach towards health. Read more about Daibetes and it's mangament and empower your mother with knowledge so that she can take precautions and inform immediately if any thing goes wrong.

how to reduce diabetic eye pressure

MBBS, MD - Internal Medicine
Internal Medicine Specialist, Faridabad
how to reduce diabetic eye pressure
Diabetes causes vascular damage throughout the body. Because the blood vessels within the eye are so tiny, any damage at all can have a tremendous impact on eye health.

One of the most prevalent of the diabetes-related eye diseases is glaucoma. In fact, people with diabetes are between 40% and 50% more likely to develop glaucoma than non-diabetics.

Glaucoma causes the pressure within the eye to increase gradually, damaging the optic nerve and leading to partial or complete vision loss. The exact mechanisms for this are unknown. While there are several types of glaucoma, the most common form is open-angle glaucoma.
Open-angle glaucoma

The eye is full of fluid which continually refreshes. Normally, fluid drains at a point in the eye where the iris and the cornea meet. If this opening becomes even partially blocked the fluid drains out of the eye too slowly, even as new fluid is added. This backup of fluid causes an increase in pressure within the eye, damaging the optic nerve.

Open-angle glaucoma does not cause any symptoms until the disease is well-advanced. By that time, vision is impacted, with loss of peripheral vision first, advancing to tunnel vision and then total vision loss as the disease progresses.
Treatment

The goal of treatment is to lower intraocular pressure. This can be approached one of three ways: lower eye pressure, improve drainage of fluid from the eye or decrease the volume of fluid produced within the eye.

There are a variety of eye drops that may be prescribed.

Prostaglandins (xalatan, lumigan) and cholingeric agents (isopto carbine and isopto carbachol) act to increase outflow of fluid from within the eye.

Beta blockers (betimol, timoptic, betoptic) and carbonic anhydrase inhibitors (trusopt, azopt) reduce the production of fluid within the eye.

Alpha-adrenergic agonists (iopidine, alphagan) both lessen fluid production and increase fluid outflow.

Physicians may prescribe a combination of the above.

Oral medications may also be prescribed, if eye drops alone are not sufficient. These are usually in the form of a carbonic anhydrase inhibitor.

If medications are not sufficient to halt progression of the disease, then surgery might be necessary.

Drainage implants might be inserted within the eyes to facilitate drainage.

Laser surgery, known as laser trabeculoplasty, can be done to open clogged drainage canals.

Filtering surgery, known as trabeculectomy, removes a small piece of tissue from the location of the drainage canals, widening the opening and improving drainage.

The best possible treatment for glaucoma is prevention. Everyone above 40 years of age should have an eye exam at least every three years. Diabetics should have a dilated examination of their eyes annually.

Well-controlled blood sugar level are another preventive measure that will lessen the odds of developing glaucoma.

If the diabetes is not under control and she has long standing diabetes risk of kidney damage is there.she should monitor her blood sugar three monthly along with Hba1c and consult diabetologist for treatment and advice.You can do renal function test like blood urea.creatinine and urine R/E for albumin to find out whether kidney is affected or not.Along with medicine she should go for regular walk,reduce weight if overweight,control diet by avoiding sweets and excess carbohydrates.she should strictly follow diabetic diet after consulting dietician

Whether sago can be taken by diabetic person also? Without any problem of blood sugar?

Whether sago can be taken by diabetic person also? Without any problem of blood sugar?
Sago is a carb just like rice, roti, poha, dalit, khichdi. You need to exchange sago with roti or any other source mentioned, in the same amount so as to get the same carb value. Eg 1 roti = 1 bowl dalia= 1 bowl sago =1 medium sized katori of cooked rice. So sago is safe.

My creatinine is 1.9. How I control that level. I'm diabetic. And also have taken cardiac medicines.
Hey take a proper balanced diet at regular intervals. Stop taking any protein supplements if taking any. Try taking chamomile tea, add cinnamon to your foods, keep low fat, moderate protein moderate carbs. Eat fibrous foods to control sugar, reduce sea foods consumption very high in proteins. Donot have processed foods high in msg and potassium. Avoid strenous exercises. You can take a further consulation for a diet plan from me.
