Dear Lybrateuser, - As you have sugar problem you have to take certain dietary precautions: - have more of fibre containing foods, vegetables, fruits (avoid banana, mangoes, chickoo) citrus fruits, whole grains like whole wheat, brown rice, oats, corn, low fat milk & milk products, lean meats like seafood - have 5-6 small meals rather than three large meals which include snacks, do not skip meals, have meals on time, take a walk for 10-15 min after meals especially dinner to stabilize your sugar - avoid fried, processed & junk food - do regular exercise like brisk walking, jogging, swimming for 10-15 min, also do moderate weight lifting for 5-10 min at least twice a week, try to include yoga & deep breathing in your morning schedule to keep fit - take a dieticians help for accurate dietary requirement.

The sugar levels usually are low at fasting even in diabetic patient because after 8 to 10 hrs after meal glucose is bound to be low, after food if your control is good then pp level should be closer to 140 mg/100ml. However the levels mentioned by you are high because the treatment is not adequate. In a well controlled patient rbs could be about 120 - 130 mg/100ml you need to take some additional drugs to control sugar level. Please tell me some more details like weight, height, waist circumference, hba1c % and time spent on exercise daily. Then I can suggest some changes for you.

Infertility - Common Myths & Facts You Must Know!

Infertility - Common Myths & Facts You Must Know!

Do you believe in all the facts about infertility which you hear around you, and which a lot of people believe in? Infertility is the inability of a woman to conceive after having unprotected sex. There are various assumptions and perceptions of people regarding fertility, and many of them are not true. It is important for you to clear such myths and get the facts right.

Here is a list of the most common myths and facts associated with infertility in females:
1. Myth: A woman’s menstrual cycle lasts for 28 days.
Fact: A normal menstrual cycle lasts between 21 to 36 days. 28 days is an approximate estimate.

2. Myth: A woman can become pregnant only on day one of her cycle.
Fact: After the egg gets released, it is available for around 12 to 24 hours. However, a woman can get pregnant five days prior to and two days after the ovulation by having sexual intercourse.

3. Myth: Stress is a factor that leads to infertility.
Fact: Stress has nothing to do with causing infertility. Stress can only lead to some delay in ovulation by suppressing hormones.

3. Myth: Sperm can live for a few hours only.
Fact: Sperm can live for 5 to 6 days in fertile cervical liquid.

4. Myth: A woman must wait for three months for conceiving after stopping the use of birth control pills.
Fact: Birth control pills reduce hormone levels and cause suppressed ovulation. After having the pills, the hormone levels become normal instantly and ovulation is ought to begin during the next menstrual cycle.

5. Myth: Infertility is caused by females primarily.
Fact: According to studies, infertility problems occur in both men and women at an equal rate. 20% of infertility problems occur because of issues faced by both.

6. Myth: Ovulation takes place on the 14th day of the menstrual cycle.
Fact: This is not true, and for counting ovulation you should count 14 days backwards from the last day of your last menstrual cycle.

7. Myth: Having daily sex increases the chance of conception.
Fact: Having sex every other day during ovulation, especially between the 12th and the 16th day of a woman’s menstrual cycle is sufficient as sperm lives more than two days.

8. Myth: Fertility problems start showing at 35.
Fact: A woman reaches her peak fertility stage during her 20’s. Fertility keeps on changing all throughout her life. While some women remain fertile until their late 30’s, some experience problems at an early age. The chances of conceiving decline after attaining the age of 35.

Another common belief is that single embryo transfer lowers the success rate of pregnancy. This is baseless, as women have limited eggs. When they run out of eggs, menopause occurs. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Gynaecologist.

I am 47 years old, having diabetes since 2008. I am taking Tryglinaze-2 once in a day and half at night. I take Janumet rarely. My diabetes is mostly above 200 (PP). My weight is 72 kg. Kindly guide accordingly.

Janumet contains sitagliptin and metformin. This tablets basically helps to control post meal high sugars. I think you just need to take it regularly. You can continue triglynase 2 as before.

If you are not able to go for a walk daily, then stay active in some form or other like climbing stairs at your home. Secondly, for leg pain dip your legs in warm water daily before going to bed, it improves blood circulation.

Doctor I am diabetic patient and under medication. Is it possible if I stop medicine and instead take care of my diet habit and go for walking everyday. Thanks.

Its not possible. Because your body doesnt produce enough insulin to keep your blood sugar normal with diet and walking alone.

Govt is promoting IME-9 tablets for diabetics. Is this drug a complementary to drugs like Metformin etc. Can it be consumed simultaneously with other allopathic drugs. Can it cause hypoglycemia.

Mr. lybrate-user, I too have heard and seen the TV advertisement on IME - 9. That can probably be taken as an additional supportive treatment than only drug. I do not think it causes hypoglycemia. One of the patient had written here on this site that he had stopped all modern drugs on the advise of an ayurvedic doctor and was taking only IME - 9 and after 20 days his blood glucose shot up to fasting around 350 and PP 450 mg plus. So I really do not know whether there is any real benefit. Thanks.
