Mr. Lybrate-user, looking at your weight and height the bmi is 20.41 kgs/m2 which is close tto being grade 1 obesity. This itself can tiredness and fatigue. Plus it can precipitate or aggravate diabetes. Also will effort to control blood sugar. There is no mention about current blood sugar levels (fasting and pp) and hba1c%. Plus extent of daily exercise that may be done. Also get your thyroid test done and report the same.

Are there any long-term effects associated with taking ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder) medications? If so, what are they and what medications are implicated? What exactly is a spine block injection? Will it work long-term for low back pain due to disc problems? What causes Hashimoto's thyroiditis, and what is the best method of treatment? Can iodine help this condition?

Dear Mr. Lybrate-user, namaskar, you must ask the first question to a psychiatrist. Spine block injections are used to treat such discs which are not so bad in the mri but still causing problem to the patient. Or where the patient does not accept surgery despite an indication in the mri. This is a palliative measure to alleviate pain temporarily. For few weeks to few months. Can not be predicted by the doctor. The hashimoto's disease is treated by endocrinologists. He will be able to answer your question properly. Take care.

Mr tapash kumar, try and increase fiber content in your diet by consuming more salads, flax seeds (25 g, roasted) or fenugreek seeds (roasted or powdered). Fruits which are permitted like papaya, apple (with skin), pear and guava. Drink enough water. Normally these measures help in overcoming constipation. If nothing works then the laxatives which you are already taking.

It is VERY difficult for a diabetic since 10 years, to reduce his blood sugar levels by diet control alone. I strongly recommend that you take medicines too, under a doctor's supervision.

Dear lybrate user, protein is one of the most vital nutritional substances which are required for human body. Almost every high protein diet contains purine. This purine produces uric acid on oxidation. Excess uric acid is accumulated at the joints of human beings as urate salts. This accumulation of urate salts lead to pain & swelling of those affected joints & this condition is clinically known as gout. You should avoid high protein rich diet like mutton, chicken, beef, eggs, sea fish, spinach, garden pea, tomato, lentils etc. Also you need to take homoeopathic mother tincture urtica urens q, 30 drops, thrice daily, after meals, in a cup of water. This medicine will help to dissolve the accumulated excess urate salts from the joints.

I am a diabetic patient and on oral medicine . My Hb1Ac is 8 and for the last 6 months , I am feeling numbness on my right thigh and sometimes feeling of inflammation and the other time piercing of needles. Taking gabapentin 100 but no positive result.

Hb1Ac =8 means your blood sugars are not under good control Diabetes is managed on three parallel guidelines. 1.Diet planning and control in consultation with the dietician 2.Timely and regular use of prescribed medicines 3.Regular brisk morning walk for 45mts for 6 days a week if any of the three is deviated the blood sugars will increase, so find out the root cause

Hello- Erectile dysfunction (ED) affects as many as 30 million men in India. Almost half of men over age 75 experience ED, according to the National Institutes of Health. ED is commonly called “impotence.” It’s a condition in which a man can’t achieve or maintain an erection during sexual performance. Symptoms may also include reduced sexual desire or libido. A)Natural home remedy using drumstick flowers Boil a handful of drumstick flowers in 1 glass of milk Drink it when lukewarm Sip it every day for 1-2 months This is a good tonic to overcome sexual debility. B) Natural home remedy using ginger and honey Crush ginger to a paste Take 2 tsp of this ginger paste Add 2 tsp of honey Mix well Have this 3 times a day.

I am a diabetic n taking medicine for this but how do I know that it is type one or type 2 diabetes. ?

I am a diabetic n taking medicine for this but how do I know that it is type one or type 2 diabetes. ?
Hi Mahendra, The basic difference between type 1 and type 2 diabetes is that in type 1 diabetes there is no insulin production be the beta cells of the pancreas and it is necessary to take insulin externally to utilize glucose, that is why it is also called Insulin dependent diabetes. While in type 2 diabetes there is defect in insulin functioning or/and insulin secretion, depending upon various conditions type 2 diabetes can be managed well with following proper diet, exercise and medication. Though in some cases patient with type 2 diabetes may also require insulin. Type 2 diabetes is majorly caused by poor lifestyle, excess body and is also hereditary while type 1 diabetes occur due to destruction of beta cells which is a auto immune defect. As per your description it seems that yours is type 2 diabetes.

Single figures of any investigations report do not always give diagnosis of a disease. Signs and symptoms, history, physical examination other investigations support for diagnosis. Do not take tension. You are very normal dear. Regards.

Lybrate-user, please check blood glucose - fbs, pp & hba1c%, that will give an idea about diabetes status. Usually we do not advise any one to stop anti-diabetes treatment. Recurrence of abscess may be due to repeated infection of hair follicles, this can happen in diabetes. Invariably in well controlled diabetic patient these infections are well controlled. After checking above mentioned details please come back with details in a private conversation, where I will be able to help. Thanks.

Hello, biscuits are really not a healthy food. If you need fiber use vegetables, fruits, flax seeds, fenugreek seeds and whole grain products. There is hardly a need for instant energy, if your diet is balanced and healthy. Thanks for the question.
