Endocrinologist,
At the moment diabetes is incurable. You can keep it under control with exercise ,diet and drugs.Drugs can be avoided if you do strict diet n vigourous exercise.In near future there can be breakthrough with gene theapy or stem cell therapy. At the moment the option is pancreatic transplant which is combersome procedure and is usually done along with kidney transplant.

She has sugar around 110 in the morning. Can she have honey ?
Mr the sugar levels 110 mg fasting is good, but is the person on anti diabetic drugs or a confirmed diabetic? if diabetes is present, then honey is to be avoided, because it is a form of sugar (fructose), increases blood glucose levels quickly.

Hi Lybrate, Jaggery cannot be replacement for sugar in diet. It is sugar only in other form and taste. Needs more quantity than regular crystal sugar. The jaggary contains Iron and B12 vitamin is good for health in normal way. But it has similar effects like sugar in body making one prone to diabetes and obesity. Regards.

Mr. Lybrate-user, it is good to know you exercise regularly to keep fit. However, your blood sugar levels both show impaired glucose tolerance (igt), which also means you are prediabetic. Usually at 150 mg pp level, urine will not have any sugar. Soplease take care and do not allow the sugar levels to go up. Your bmi is 26.71 kg/m2 (normal <23 kg/m2), so there is need for weight reduction. Also get a routine examination done to check if there is any infection. Uti can cause increased frequency and feeling or retention. If there is infection get it treated.

I have a thyroid patient and I have a lot of pain in my joints can you tell me what I have to do it.

BHMS

I have a thyroid patient and I have a lot of pain in my joints can you tell me what I have to do it.
When leg pain occurs after strenuous physical activity, you can simply apply cold compresses. This will help reduce the pain by numbing the affected area and control swelling and inflammation. Wrap a few ice cubes (or a bag of frozen peas) in a thin towel. Apply this pack on the affected area for 10 to 15 minutes, while keeping the leg(s) elevated. Do this a few times a day. Note: Do not apply ice directly on the skin, as it may cause frostbite. 2. Massage -- Massage promotes faster recovery from muscle damage that causes leg pain. 10 minutes of massage therapy attenuates inflammatory signaling after exercise-induced muscle damage. In addition, massage improves blood circulation and helps relieve stress and anxiety. Rub some warm olive, coconut or mustard oil on the affected area. Using gentle yet firm strokes, massage your legs for about 10 minutes. Do this 2 or 3 times daily as needed. You can also use a self-massage device or apply pressure to sore muscles using a tennis ball.

How we can check the disease of diabetes in patient and what are the precaution should be take to free from diabetes.
Mr Sudhir, To find out if a person has diabetes or not following test have to be done : Fasting and PP blood sugar and HbA1c%. If fasting sugar level is above 126 mg / 100 ml and /or PP sugar level is above 200 mg/100 ml and HbA1c% is above 6.5%, then diabetes Mellitus is confirmed. If diabetes is confirmed then one has to take proper medication which will depend upon blood sugar level. The treatment has to be taken for life time. Theres is no other option. Plus diet control and regular exercise also are equally important.

With diet control blood glucose levels will drop. However, with such high hba1c you will need medicines. The dosage of medicine can come down over time. But at present it is imperil ice that you start treatment.

Hello , please follow the doctor prescribed medicine. Which controls the diabetics and will not allow you increase. But along with medication, you need to concentrate on food also. Make sure you food must have high protein, fiber and omega-3 nutrition. For a diabetics, its good to have more protein rather than carbohydrates, which converts into glucose and may have a chance to increase the diabetes. What we suggest is the nutrigemoic protein, who certified, with 9 essential amino acids. This will help you cure your diabetics. But you will definitely have a result, if you can use protein with vitamins and minerals, fiber and omega-3 supplements, we charge you 200/- per private consultation, lets discuss more about health and how to control with the diet. Have a nice day.
