Please do not stop atormac-tg. Your levels are normal because of the medicine. If you stop the levels will rise up again. I hope this helps.

To control your diabetes the first thing is your willpower you have to fight against it and if you will be serious in it you will definitely win now what you have to do you have to take half tablespoon fenugreek seeds and put it in 75 ml water at night before sleeping now in morning after being fresh drink this water and chew down the fenugreek seeds empty stomach do this regularly for 3 months without fail, if you are not regular then you will not get any benefit for example you consume this for 60 days and then forget to take for 2 days then your improvement will come to zero. Avoid sugar in any form because sugar is polysaccharide and you must b aware polysaccharide sugar is harmful for health you have to eat monosaccharides sugar in the form of glucose sucrose and fructose and that is easily available in natural fresh juices nd fruits and desi jaggery desi mishri nd khand. Continue your habit of walking you should target at least 90 minutes walk everyday.

Sir in my chest some time is paining but I am a smoker as well as I not drink water so much.

Sir in my chest some time is paining but I am a smoker as well as I not drink water so much.
pain is complex phenomenon, so there are many treatment options medications, therapies, and mind-body techniques. Apart from pain killers, there is evidence that certain dietary supplements and vitamins can help with certain types of pain. Fish oil is often used to reduce pain associated with swelling. A therapeutic diet complemented with few medications for pain management can also work wonders. Do reply back for medication prescriptions. Being also a general physician and registered dietitian, I prescribe both evidence based herbal as well as allopathic medicines complementing with dietary guidelines and home remedies carefully personalized for each individual patient.

high cholesterol can cause atherosclerotic heart disease or narrowed coronary arteries in the heart can cause the symptoms of angina, when theheart muscle is not provided with enough oxygen to function. Decreased blood supply to the brain may be due to narrowed small arteries in the brain or because the larger carotidarteries in the neck may become blocked. This can result in a transient ischmic attack or stroke. Peripheral artery disease describes gradual narrowing of the arteries that supply the legs. During exercise , if the legs do not get enough blood supply, they can develop pain , called claudication . Other arteries in the body may also be affected by plaque buildup causing them to narrow, including the mesenteric arteries to the intestine and the renal arteries to the kidney. Avoid fast foods,oily foods,junk foods,alcohol,smoking,fatty foods, non-veg.,avoid stress, take green veg., whole grain.garlic,. Take anti cholesterol medicines . take tab. folic acid-5 once a day for iron.

I am a 50 years old male and have sugar and bp last 4 years what should I do.

CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology, MBBS
Endocrinologist,
I am a 50 years old male and have sugar and bp last 4 years what should I do.
In most of the people diabetes and high bp go hand in hand. Taking proper medication as advised by the doctor is the only remedy. In addition certain other things have to be done like- exercise regularly for more than 1 h a day (brisk walking), restricted dietary intake as advised by physician, for bp avoid extra salt, and pickles & papad. For diabetes you should avoid sweets, direct sugar, deep fried foods, fruits like mangoes, bananas, chikkoos, grapes. Also try and maintain weight near norma for ones height and age.

It is true that levels of oxygen are lower at higher altitudes ,even within aeroplanes but with new technology the oxygen levels within plane are okay. low levels of oxygen do trigger a heart attack. let him carry a small portable oxygen cylinder with him and breathe oxygen within plane without asking the crew for it ,though they do have it as all of us are aware about emergency situations , oxygen masks are dropped but why bother. there should be no difficulty in taking permission but do make everything very clear so that he does not face problems at airport during clearance.
