What's the treatment for diabetic neuropathy in the lower limbs. Is there a way to reverse diabetic neuropathy.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Mr Amod, Diabetic neuropathy occurring in lower limbs can not be reversed, as damage to the nerve endings due hyperglycaemia is permanent. But further deterioration can be prevented by strict blood sugar control, and symptoms of neuropathy can be relieved by using certain drugs. It will be better if you give details like current fasting and PP sugar levels, HbA1c% and drugs being taken with dosage and come in a private conversation then i can give specific suggestions.

What is the best medicine for diabetes for 15 years child. Present he is using insulin 30/70.

MSc

Diabetes is a vast subject and normally one diabetic differs from another. The best thing about diabetes is unlike other ailments this if taken care off can be controlled effectively. Diabetes is a problem which requires lot of self-control. Certain foods and lifestyle changes can show long term results on your health. Depending on the type of diabetes you have, your food habits, age and body type your treatment, insulin counts and monitoring should be scheduled. I can help you with carbohydrate counting to correct insulin techniques and monitoring your sugar levels whatever the need be. Diabetics require personalized care when it's about the diet-plans and activities that are needed to be done. A professional advice in this regard is a must in order to manage diabetes effectively. I hold expertise with diabetics as I am a certified diabetes educator apart from being a consultant dietitian. You can consult me privately online for any advice related to diabetes.

Hello, along with your recent medication, take Sygyzium 1X , 2 tabs twice dailt before meals , morning and night. 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.

You can consume it in any form ( use the traditional ways of cooking ). But eat in moderation depending on your need ( calories require ). If it is made with sugar in it then you may take a few spoons only. Keep your blood sugar under check by following a healthy lifestyle.

Dear lybrate-user, you probably have pcod (polycystic ovarian disease) and along with diabetes it results in metabolic syndrome. Treat your diabetes very stringently by loosing weight, consuming healthy diet and taking proper medications which may include insulin as it is the only drug allowed for child bearing age girls who are desirous to get pregnant. Before conception your hba1c must be less than 6. Sugar before food less than 93 and after food 2 hours not more than 120.

Avoid tea/coffee alcohol, smoking spicy food. Life style changes and food habbits can solve your problem easily. Chew your food properly. Avoid outside food. Walk about 3-5 kms daily. There should be gap of 2hrs after dinner and sleep. Small and frequent meals is of help. Keep your blood sugar controlled. Raise your bed about 4" from headend side. Get your gastroendoscopy done. Consult doctor, meanwhile take nexpro-l 1 tab daily.

Refined Cereals are Worst for Diabetics :

Sweetened breakfast cereals can cause a spike in blood sugar, but the response can vary. "Blood sugar reactions to cereal vary greatly from person to person," Even oatmeal—which is recommended as a good choice by the ADA—can be a problem if it's the sweetened, instant type.

Have this instead: Swap breakfast cereal for a high-protein meal instead, suggests Try an egg white omelet with vegetables and turkey or Canadian bacon with a small slice of low-carb (7 grams) bread. Cholesterol in the yolk may contribute to a higher risk of heart disease and diabetes, which makes egg whites a healthier option. Steel cut and traditional oatmeal, cooked slowly, is a better choice than other types of oatmeal as it is less likely to spike blood sugar. Small portions and adding protein can help.

Sir/Madam I am Married, I have hypothyroidism, my previous reading was 8.5MicroIU/ml, I have consulted physician he has increased my dosage to 50mcg, previously I was taking 25mcg. Now recently I have checked tsh level is 0.19MicroIU/ml (Normal Range Mentioned-0.30-5.5) I was shocked to see my report, it has almost gone below the normal, T3-122ng/dl (60-200) and T4-12.4microg/dl (4.5-12.0. So my question is, is it normal to have such levels what should I do now? What could be the cause, still I have not get my period. Kindly suggest?

Dear patient, it is a good news that your levels under control but the recent report shows less than the normal range. Now you need to take 50 mcg one day and 25 mcg another day so that you can alternate taking these medicines and once again you need to check your thyroid levels, take care.

My TSH is 4.8 microIU/ml and T4 and T3 is normal. And Vit B12 is 196 pg/mL and vit D level is 5.9 Do I need Further more investigations. What is the reason for these low levels and what should be my treatment line.

Thank you for writing to us. Please note the following in respect to your queries: vitamin b12 deficiency can happen if you have certain conditions, such as: atrophic gastritis pernicious anemia conditions affecting the small intestine, such as crohn's disease, celiac disease, bacterial growth, or a parasite heavy drinking immune system disorders, such as graves' disease or lupus long-term use of acid-reducing drugs. You can also get vitamin b12 deficiency if you're a vegan (meaning you don't eat any animal products, including meat, milk, cheese, and eggs). Treatment for vitamin b12 deficiency: if you have pernicious anemia or a problem with its absorption, you'll need to replace vitamin b12 by injection initially and then continued injections, high doses of an oral replacement, or nasal therapy for life. If the issue is that you don't eat animal products, you can change your diet to include vitamin b12-fortified grains, a supplement or b12 injections, or a high-dose oral vitamin b12 if you are deficient. Causes of vitamin d deficiency: vitamin d deficiency can occur for a number of reasons: you don't consume the recommended levels of the vitamin over time. Your exposure to sunlight is limited. You have dark skin. Your kidneys cannot convert vitamin d to its active form. Your digestive tract cannot adequately absorb vitamin d. You are obese. Treatment for vitamin d deficiency treatment for vitamin d deficiency involves getting more vitamin d -- through diet and supplements. If you don't spend much time in the sun or always are careful to cover your skin (sunscreen inhibits vitamin d production), you should speak to your doctor about taking a vitamin d supplement, particularly if you have risk factors for vitamin d deficiency. If you still need any help get back to me. Thanks.

My wife age is 26 years and an year back when she consulted a skin doctor for hair fall, we realized that she was hypothyroid and her TSH level was 8.5 at that time and she has multiple other vitamin deficiencies and started treatment for all these and 6 months back even PCOD problem started and we have started treatment for this as well from a gynecologist and the thyroid treatment is being taken from an endocrinologist She was initially given thyroxine dose of 50 mg and for first 6 months thyroid was in control, but from last 4 months, her thyroid levels were moving up and down, not sure if this is because of PCOD treatment being taken in parallel or because of hormonal changes 2 Months back her thyroid levels went negative (hyperthyroid) and doctor suggested to decrease the thyroxine dose from 50 to 25 mg and because the dose has been reduced, menstrual problems started and from last 2 months she hasn't got her period and spotting is appearing almost every alternate day and when we got tested the thyroid level yesterday, now the TSH level has bumped up to 18 and free T4 was around 0.62 and now the doctor was suggesting to increase the dose to 62 mg and come and meet after a couple of months. Now we are completely frustrated because how can we get to know whether thyroid values are increasing or decreasing, so that accordingly dose can be adjusted before it has gotten worse, she is doing yoga every day, she quit coffee / tea, she is eating leafy vegetables every alternate day, she is taking thyroxine medicine on time every day, her weight is according to her weight (5-5 height and 60 kg weight, she doesn't eat non veg and doesn't smoke or drink. She is very disturbed and often crying as we want to try for a baby when the health condition is stabilised, but because of this thyroid she has become weak and lost interest on her. When thyroid was not detected, the only problem she has was hair fall and as soon as we started medication, PCOD problem started, irregular menstrual problem started started etc etc, I still wonder that we shouldn't have started external medication and instead would have focused on curing it naturally by exercising and by following a healthy diet, I strongly feel, since we started medication, it was used to external medication and stopped it's functioning. Now we want to give homeopathy a try, is it wise to do so or how should we go forward?
