My mother is diabetic for last 6 years but this week her sugar level was 485 & she is suffering from cold & cough for last 20 days. Drs have prescribed antibiotics & antidiabetic (glimepiride 4 mg + metformin 1000 mg BD) but still sugar level is 351 and no symptomatic relief in cold & cough, also she is having fever sometimes. She doesn't like food now. Nausea is also happening.

Thank you for the query. As per the details provided, your mother is 51 years of age and a diabetic for 6 years. A sugar level of 485 mg% is definitely undesirable, and in your mother's case it has shot up probably due to her infection (cough +cold). Please get her sugar profile done (fasting and 2 hrs post prandial blood sugar and hba1c). Since she has an infection, it will be difficult to control her sugar without treating the infection. It will be preferable to maintain her sugar between 140-180 mg% at this phase. Since she is having nausea diabetic ketoacidosis (a condition arising due to high sugar levels) must be kept in mind. Glimeperide and metformin are good medications, but since they are long acting drugs, in the background of an infection they may cause hypoglycemia. Sometimes to manage high blood sugar levels, temporarily, short acting insulin may be used. Once the sugar levels are controlled, the oral drugs may be restarted. It is advisable to monitor her sugar levels at home, if possible. In the long term, a 1400 kcal/day, refined carbohydrate and saturated fat restricted diet is preferred. Regards

Treatment is only insulin and strict self monitoring of sugar level. It would be better if we know your blood sugar levels.

My HBa1c is 5.7 which I tested yesterday & it was 6.1 about 4 months before. Fasting sugar ranges b/w 115~120. I have lost 15 kg since last one year. I am taking 500 mg glyciphage twice daily. Also, my stomach is bad (constipation) for 8-9 months. My sleep is also not fully relaxing for many years. But, last one year or so has been really bad interns of weight loss & continuous constipation. I tried homemade remedies but not much relief. Please advice if my sugar medication is the cause of my weight loss & how do I get rid of bad stomach which is troubling me the most. I am thinking of castor oil even to have some relief. Thanks in advance.

Your blood sugar level is high so avoid sweets as more as possible. Take pranacharya diabeto capsule and shilajeet capsule twice a day. Instead of these tablets in my opinion you should go for ayurvedic medicines for sgot & sgpt.

Yes. Homeopathic remedies for high uric acid provide an excellent cure. Treatment of elevated uric acid levels with homeopathic remedies not only lowers the levels but also treats body’s defective tendency to hold  excess of uric acid. Homeopathic remedies also treat the body’s metabolic process which handles purines (kind of protein which ends up as uric acid after the body processes it. These are the top homeopathic medicines for elevated uric acid levels that I have found to be very effective colchi, ledum, guaicum, benzoic acid, lithium etc Tips for increased uric acid levels and gout Watch your weight. Try to lose weight slowly. Eat fresh fruit, vegetables, whole wheat products and some pulses (high in purine) every day. Enjoy low-fat milk and dairy products daily. Keep an eye on the purine content of food. Avoid offal, shellfish and crustaceans and tinned fish such as sardines in oil. Eat no more than 100g of meat, sausages, fish and poultry a day. Drink alcohol only occasionally, as it affects the elimination of uric acid. Eat low-fat food. The consumption of high-fat foods encourages weight gain. Drink at least two litres of low-calorie fluids a day. Recommended fluids are water, tea and fruit juice. .consult me by clicking on consult option for homoepathic treatment without side effects.

I am pregnant and diabetic too. I just want a proper diet chart according to time.
You may be able to control gestational diabetes by eating well and exercising regularly. This means you won't need to take medication. Sugar (glucose) is one of your body's main sources of energy. Your body uses a hormone called insulin to control the amount of sugar in your blood and to turn it into fuel. But pregnancy hormones reduce the effect of insulin, so your body has to make more to be able to use any sugar in your blood. If you have gestational diabetes, your body isn't producing enough insulin. As a result, your blood sugar levels can get very high and that can lead to problems for your baby. It's possible to keep your blood sugar levels under control by changing what you eat and combining your new healthy diet with regular exercise. In fact, up to 90 per cent of women with gestational diabetes control it this way. DIET There are two types of carbohydrate that give you energy when you eat them. They are: complex carbohydrates, or starch simple carbohydrates, or sugars Sometimes, complex carbohydrates are described as good carbs, and simple carbohydrates as bad. But this doesn't give the whole picture. Simple carbohydrates include added sugars, such as table sugar and honey, as well as natural sugars, found in fruit and milk. Eating plenty of fruit and some dairy products is a healthy thing to do. So when people call simple sugars bad carbs, they are talking about added sugars. If you have gestational diabetes and you have too many foods and drinks high in added sugars, it can upset your blood glucose control. It's not healthy for people without diabetes, either. At least half the energy in our diets should come from carbohydrate, mostly as starchy carbohydrates. Starchy carbohydrates are: bread rice pasta grains potatoes Try to have wholegrain varieties where possible. They provide extra fibre, which is important for your digestion. If you have gestational diabetes, the types of food and drink you'll be advised to have are no different from the type of healthy diet everyone should have. Your food should be high in complex carbohydrates and low in saturated fat. You should not have added sugars, although you won't have to cut them out completely. It's best if you eat fruit, milk and yoghurts as part of a mixed meal. Your body will then absorb the simple sugars in the juice or dairy food more slowly. That's because the sugars are mixed with other food elements, such as fibre and protein. AND USE LOW GLYCEMIC INDEX FOODS LIKE pasta made with durum wheat flour apples, oranges, pears, peaches beans and lentils sweetcorn porridge Eat plenty of high-fibre foods. These foods tend to have a low GI. This may help to keep your blood sugar levels from going too high after meals. High-fibre foods include: fresh fruit and vegetables wholegrain breads and cereals dried peas, beans and pulses.

I am 23 years old. My height is 6 feet. What should be the blood sugar. What is the reason of hair falling.
Regardless of your age, sex, body measurements - the blood sugar value considered normal are equal for all humans. Fasting blood sugar should never be greater than 126 mg/dl - beyond that is diabetes. If it is greater than 110 mg/dl - that makes it pre-diabetes. Your hair fall can be due to common factors like vitamin deficiencies, thyroid etc. You need to get it checked.

I am having gestational diabetes, sugar is high, please suggest diet plan for sugar control.
Hi First of all congratulations for your little one. Check your blood sugars atleast once a day. Your fasting blood sugar should be between 70-90 mg/dl and after meals it should be 110-140 mg/dl. Have small meals every 2-3 hrs. Eat high protein diet like lots of sprouts, paneer, channa. Avoid carbohydrates like rice based food, pastas, biscuits. Drink lots of water and eat in lots of salads. Don't take fruit juices, eat the fruit. Drink atleast 2 glasses of milk a day. Since your blood sugar is high, do not control it by starving or dieting too much, this can affect your little ones health. Eat adequately but eat the right food. If there is a need for insulin go with it, do not hesitate as insulin is very safe. Lastly exercise regularly.

My mother has thyroid issues. She takes eltroxin for 7 years. Recently she felt irregular pain in her lower abdomen. After her USG it was found that her uterus is but bulky. And it has a 1.9x 1.1 cm tumor / fibroid in it. Her hemoglobin count is 8.9. In her periods she has pain and excessive blood issues. We consulted one of very renowned doctor in Kolkata he suggested not to operate that now. Also he has prescribed these medicine below. Neopride total Depsonil pm 75 mg Pause mf Oleanz rt 20 After searching net I found these are mainly anti depression medicines. My mother is near to menopause I feel. These medicine are related to this age issues or doctor thinks she had depression issues. On added note my mother has nervous break down issues. She sweats much. She has insomnia. I want to know are these tendency of psychopath nature? Please suggest.

Mr. Lybrate-user, as a lady nears menopause certain psychological disturbances do occur. But these are temporary. Excessive sweating known as" hot flushes" is quite common during this period. This may remain till menopause is attained or even longer in some women. These are usually minor problems, need not lead to any serious psychiatric issues. As regards her tumor in uterus you may take a second opinion from another gynecologist. But her hemoglobin which is low needs to be treated with hematinic drugs.

I am a diabetic patient for last 13 years I am taking regular medicine for that not insulin my fasting report is 229 one week before suggest what remedies I have to take?

PGDD, RD, Bachelor of Home Science
Dietitian/Nutritionist, Mumbai
For a diabetic it is best advised to have a diet planned as per the sugar levels, lifestyle and history. Though you can follow some guidelines - have small frequent meals. Do not fast for more than 2-3 hours. Avoid a very heavy meal at one time. Avoid fruit juices, aerated drinks or sugarcane juice, honey, jaggery or sugar. Fruits should be had as a mid meal. Avoid junk foods. Exercise and stay active. Do not attempt to try out too many remedies as you could go into hypoglycaemia. Sleep well. It's all a matter of discipline.
