I am a diabetic from last 6 years please tell me good medicine for the same.

CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology, MBBS
Endocrinologist,
I am a diabetic from last 6 years please tell me good medicine for the same.
There are a number of good mediciines for controlling diabetes, the choice of the drug will depend on your sugar levels, weight and physical activity. If levels are moderately high only one drug like metformin alone would be enough. So if you want to know exact treatment please provide all the details like fasting and pp sugar levels, hba1c%, weight, height, waist circumference, level of physical activity and type of diet and come in a private conversation, where I will be able to give a specific advise or prescription. In this communication we are supposed toonly give general guide lines.

Hi , Your sugar is under control. For good control fasting glucose should be less than 110 and 2 hour post prandial glucose should be less than 160. HbA1C should be less than 6.5 for your age.(HbA1C gives the average blood glucose value over the past 3 months. Glucose in your blood is stuck to Haemoglobin produced by the Red blood cells) 1) Blood glucose testing should be done once every 3months when it is under control. This should include Fasting blood glucose, 2 hour post prandial blood glucose and HbA1C. 2) if the diabetes is not under control FBG and PPBG should be done more frequently - once every 3-4 weeks. But HbA1C should be repeated only once every 3 months - it is no use repeating it early as the life span of RBC ( red blood cells) is 3 months. Hope this helps you Thank you.

Do not take medicine of ayurvedic and homoepathic together. Home Remedies of Acidity: Avoid all types of fast food, non-vegetarian food and oily/spicy food. Take as much fruit as possible. This will help to increase alkaline in the body, neutralizing the acidity affects. Banana, Water Melon and cucumber are few recommended fruits which are proved helpful in acidity. Drink sufficient water (At least 3 ltr). Take water more frequently. Almond helps in quick control over heart burn. Whenever you feel like heart burn, take few pieces of Almonds. Jaggery (gur) is a proven home remedy for acidity. Put one piece in mouth and suck it slowly. Green coconut water is very helpful in acidity. Sleep sufficient. Do not work till late night. Fresh mint juice helps in reducing the side effects of acidity. You can have a glass of mint juice after food for a fast relief. Take a small piece of raw garlic; this is a very good digestive element. But don’t take overdose, or else it will have negative effect on acidity.

Hi, Usually for so many symptoms to occur, the thyroid hormone levels should be quite low. Hence it is unlikely that you have a thyroid problem. Please check your 'Free T3 & Free T4' levels to confirm the same. Thyroid hormone therapy if taken without the presence of hypothyroidism, is actually quite harmful. In addition, similar symptoms can occur simply due to depression & associated disorders. Please check your 'core' body temperature also. Regards.

Mr. lybrate-user, Since your diabetes is in good control, and apparently you have no erectile dysfunction, then you can definitely try for another baby. Your diabetes does not affect your wife. As regards the baby, in the later part of life there is a possibility of kids getting diabetes. But a healthy lifestyle is maintained that can be prevented. Thanks.

1. avoid caffeine found in coffee,tea , chocolate,cola,and some pain relievers.[four to six hours before bedtime.] 2. quiet, dark, and cool environment can help promote sound sleep. . [Use heavy curtains, or an eye mask to block light, and also keeping computers, TVs, and other work materials out of the room will help promote mental bonding between your bedroom and sleep] 3. Avoid stressful, stimulating activities like doing work, discussing emotional issues. Physically and psychologically stressful activities can cause the body to secrete the stress hormone cortisol, which is associated with increasing alertness.
