My father is of age 75 years , has fluctuating B.P and blood sugar. He is on medicine. Yesterday , suddenly he went blank, heaviness in head, darkness in sight and as if he lost his memory. His body became heavy. He recovered slowly in a day but today again he is facing the same problem. What can be the problem? Any emergency issue, should we admit him?

Lybrate-user, the condition being described looks like he had an attack of hypoglycemia. Did you check his blood glucose level then? if blood glucose level goes below 70 mg or lower like <60 mg or even lower, patient may get such attacks. It is important to achieve a strict blood glucose control, but equally important thing is not to allow episodes of hypoglycemia. Severe hypoglycemia can be very dangerous, particularly in elderly persons. If you have a glucometer at home, it is better to check glucose level. If it is low, then it is essential to give glucotabs 2 or 3 tabs cor candy, sugar ar some sweet etc can help. Thanks.

Make sure you take thyroid medicine properly and control thyroid level. You need to have a diet and exercise plan based on your BMI, age & weight and sex, presence of any diseases. There are exercises specific for each part of body like hips, thighs or abdomen. There are matters to be discussed privately. Comprehensive exercise& diet plan based on whether vegetarian /non vegetarian can be given if you ask privately. May also need to do some tests. In brief, weight reduction can be achieved only by reducing the intake of food 1/3 of what you take now. And by appropriate exercise plans for each part like belly, thighs, legs etc. To burn off fat. Some tips 1) drink three or four cups of water whenever you feel hungry and just before eating food 2) take boiled or raw vegetable like cucumber, carrot etc. As half of your diet. Then take 1/4 of your total diet as sprouted pulses / proteinaceous food like roti, cooked pulses and remaining with rice or other carbohydrates. Oil or ghee etc. Should be just bare minimum. The most important is to burn off the energy intake by exercises. There is no short cut or medicines without exercise. The food we eat is utilised for our energy needs and the remaining will be stored as fat which leads to obesity. It is better to do some tests. For more detailed and personal advice ask me privately www. Lybrate. Com/drsajeev. It is essential and useful to have a doctor answer your doubts online as it time spent in going to a clinic. Majority of diseases can be treated by online by consultation with an experienced doctor and does not need physical examination. You can ask me privately at this site. Regards.

Advice. Avoid sitting cross legged. Avoid squatting- quadriceps exercises- lie straight, make a towel role and put it under the knee, press the keen against the role, hold it for 20 secs. Repeat 20 times twice a day. This will help relieve some pain. Core strengthening exercise- straight leg raised with toes turned outward, repeat 10 times, twice a day. Hams stretching- lie straight, take the leg up, pull the feet towards yourself, with a elastic tube or normal belt. Repeat 10 times, twice a day. Sports taping- stretch the tape from both ends and apply on the affected area contrast fomentation (hot and cold).

Eating foods high in B vitamins, like whole grains, may also help. flax oil, Selenium: Tiny amounts of selenium are needed for enzymes that make thyroid hormones to work properly. Eating selenium-rich foods, such as sunflower seeds or Brazil nuts, can be beneficial. Tyrosine: This amino acid is used by the thyroid gland to produce T3 and T4.

I am 36 year's old I lost 5 kg's in last one month. When I check for sugar for fasting it shows 160, am I diabetic.

I am 36 year's old I lost 5 kg's in last one month. When I check for sugar for fasting it shows 160, am I diabetic.
Hello. Sometimes even after our sugar is above the normal level which is -70 to 130 before meals, -less then 180 after meals, -and at bedtime 100 to 140. We are not diagnosed with diabetes, and sometimes even a small exceed can cause diabetes, its a very peculiar phenomenon. Firstly it is advisable that you make sure you are having this same diabetic range for at least 2-3 days constantly (while having simple food). If this condition persists then you are surely having the problem of diabetes. Secondly get your thyroid checked due to your weight issues. For your exceeded blood sugar consume fenugreek seeds. Take half spoon fenugreek seeds (methi daana) and soak it overnight in one glass of water consume that water the very next morning empty stomach chewing the remaining fenugreek seeds, do it for at least 3 months. Keep away from processed food, sugars and its products as well as refined/double refined oils. You should even start with a jogging regime, walking at least 5000 steps everyday for your over all fitness and health. Lastly make sure you are maintaining a proper routine cycle as well as food cycle everyday. Thanks.

Although it is good that you have started regular walks, you need to start on allopathic medicines too. Also, check with your doctor about screening for any early complications of diabetes so that they can be controlled at an early stage. You would need a few blood and urine tests and also an eye checkup.

Mr. Lybrate-user, if tsh levels are more than 10 mi u/ml then treatment with thyroxine is required. Since there is no mention about actual levels, it is difficult give any suggestions. Diet is avoid soy beans, soy containing products, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, radish, peanuts, mustard and coffee. Consume more of green leafy vegetables, salads and fruits. Use whole grain flour for chapati and roti. Exercise regularly to control weight.

Is watermelon can be taken in diabetes can sugarfree compound can be taken as substitute.
lybrate-user, Water melon can be consumed by a person with diabetes. But daily intake should not exceed about 100 g, that too with strict blood glucose control. Sugar free tablets can be used as a substitute for sugar. However, none of the sugar substitutes are very safe. Regular use of these compounds tends to increase craving for sweets. Long term usage is also no considered safe enough. Thanks.

Dear, alprax contains alprazolam. It is a short acting medicine that makes one drowsy/sleepy. But when used for a longer time and then suddenly stopped it can lead to rebound sleeplessness. It does have side effects and I would not recommend that you take it continuously. You may gradually try to decrease the dose to half then take it alternate day and then stop it over 2 weeks. Don't stop immediately. There are other safer drugs for insomnia that you can use instead. More than medicines there are other things that you can try to help yourself sleep better. I will be glad to help you out in case you need more information.
