For diabetes and blood pressure follow a diet low in carbohydrate, low in salt, low in fat and high in fibre. Avoid bakery products. Avoid too much rice and potato. Avoid fried stuff. Avoid chocolate, cakes, ice cream, soft drinks and fruit juices. Eat lots of vegetables. Walk for at least 30 minutes a day for 5 days in a week. Medicine and insulin will work better if you follow diet and exercise. Keep your fasting blood sugar between 80-130 and post meal between 100-150. Don't be stressed out as stress is known to increase your erection problem and blood sugar. Try some meditation or yoga.

Hello, Both Honey and table sugar have glucose and fructose. So, there is not much benefit in substituting sugar for honey. Infact honey is far more sweeter than sugar. 1 tea spoon of honey has more number of calories than 1 tea spoon of sugar. So, if you must take honey, then consume it in only very small quantities, and please be aware that it will also raise your blood glucose values. You can eat 2 fruits everyday. You can eat the following fruits - apple, pear, orange, sweet lime, papaya, small bowl of melon or water melon, medium sized banana, pomegranate etc. I would advise you to avoid pineapple, mango, chikoo, custard apple etc. Hope this helps you. Thank you

Hello, Alopecia areata is a type of hair loss that occurs when your immune system mistakenly attacks hair follicles , which is where hair growth begins. Alopecia areata usually begins when clumps of hair fall out, resulting in totally smooth, round hairless patches on the scalp. In some cases the hair may become thinner without noticeable patches of baldness, or it may grow and break off, leaving short stubs (called "exclamation point" hair). In rare cases, complete loss of scalp hair and body hair occurs. The hair loss often comes and goes-hair will grow back over several months in one area but will fall out in another area. You are more likely to have permanent hair loss if you: Have a family history of the condition. Have the condition at a young age (before puberty) or for longer than 1 year. Have another autoimmune disease. Are prone to allergies (atopy). Have extensive hair loss. Have abnormal color, shape, texture, or thickness of the fingernails or toenails. Medication: Take homoeopathic medication which is safe to take and you will start getting the results within few days to few months - Acid Fluor. 200 to be taken twice a day daily for 1month. Revert back for further guidance. d Home Remedies: -Lavender - an essential oil, since it is so powerful, should be diluted into a base oil before being applied, such as almond or coconut oil. Other essential oils, including peppermint, sage, and rosemary oils can also be used on the scalp to stimulate blood flow to the scalp, thereby causing hair follicles to hear or even begin growing hair again. -One of the healthiest ways to reduce the effects of Alopecia areata is to eat as much vitamin C as possible, which is found in citrus fruits and green leafy vegetables. For hypothyroidism: If you are suffering from chronic and high grade thyroid dysfunction or autoimmune thyroid disease, in all these cases whether you take allopathic or homoeopathic or any other mode of treatment, it would maintain your thyroid function. Do practice yoga along with these medicines. Yoga-Poses: Kalapbhati: This is a very effective form of pranayama. Sit down on the floor in a comfortable cross-legged position. Take a deep breath & then exhale quickly, while making a sound. Always remember while doing Kapalbhati – you have to forcefully and quickly exhale, but slowly and deeply inhale. Continue doing this for 10 times & then release. Ujjayi Pranayam: Sit down on the floor in a cross-legged straight position. Inhale slowly and deeply by both the nostrils. Try to make a hissing sound while you are sucking in the air. After that, stretch your inhale time for a while & then exhale as much as you can without giving any kind of pressure to your other body parts. This type of pranayama is very effective for those suffering from bronchitis, asthma & thyroid. Yoga Nidra (Corpse Pose) also works well in both hypo and hyperthyroidism in reducing stress and calming down. Foods to be avoided in Hypothyroidism: hypothyroidism causes skin to become dry. Once it is controlled with tsh levels becoming normal, most symptoms will disappear. Carrots and beet root are fine, can be eaten. Only cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, radish, mustard, peanuts, soy beans and soy containing products and coffee need to be avoided.

Last year I had a chronic yeast infection. A gynie gave me a 'Candiforce' course for 5-6 months. Ever since the infection, my menstruation cycle has shortened and the flow has also significantly reduced. I have started experiencing menstrual cramps along with pain in legs, which were negligible previously. The infection has cropped up once-twice since then. Although now I have stopped sugar/starch intake and I eat home-cooked food only, I want to know why is this still happening and what should I do to restore my health?

Mr. lybrate-user, For effective treatment of diabetes one has to either take oral antidiabetic drugs or Insulin injections or both. Otherwise, no other drugs (ayurvedic. Herbal or homeopathic), really help. Some of them even claim that they can cure diabetes. Which is absolutely false claim. If you are serious in controlling the condition then will have to restart with modern medicine drugs, plus diet control and regular exercise, then only it is possible to control it. In this communication we are supposed to give only general guidelines, but no prescriptions. So it will be better if you come in a private consultation with following details: Fasting & PP blood glucose levels (current), HbA1c%, dietary pattern, extent of daily exercise and details of any drugs being taken with dosage. Based on those details I will be able to guide. Thanks.

Dear lybrate-user! This is not normal. This is what we call brittle diabetes. U have severe fluctuations in blood glucose with episodes of severe hyperglycemia and hypoglycemias. This is not at all good. I would prefer to admit you do a proper glucose charting and adjust your medicines so that this can be stopped and your blood glucose can be stabilized in the normal range of 100-150 mg/dl.
