I am 59 years old and diabetic since last 2 years, my blood sugar readings are 241 BBF & 289 PD, I have tried alopathy as well as Ayurved, but the readings are not coming down even after following the recommended medication, exercise and diet plans. What could be going wrong? I work in a highly challenging and high pressure environment and have also have to commute in crowded trains. Please advise.

There is no reason why your blood sugar cannot be controlled. You've been having DM since just 2 years. There needs to be a concerted attempt to adjust your diet, exercise and take the right medicines. You should consult your physician regularly.

Dear lybrate-user, You need to take a break from these supplements and switch to high nutritional value natural foods. Some treatment/medication to bring cholesterol may be needed (count not known) before you rely on natural foods to keep that under check. Stress (of food and work equally) can cause oxidative free radical increase that causes fatigue. This can be treated once counts are known. Regards.

Avoid outside spicy and fried 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. Tab nexpro-l 1 tab empty stomach.

While writing my hand shakes, the situation becomes worse when somebody ask me to write and see what I am writing, the heartbeat also increases and I starts feeling nervousness. Pl advice treatment.

General Physician, Trivandrum
1. Sleep well and regular. Irregular sleep can have some serious consequences. It affects both our physical health and also contributes to anxiety and stress. Anxiety as such also leads to disruptions in sleep. When feeling anxious, always try to get a full 7 to 9 hours of uninterrupted sleep and it can work wonders to improve your condition. 2. Always keep smiling. Take a quick break in between your hectic work to get some laughs with your friends. Laughter can reduce depression and anxiety and has proven benefits. 3. Tidy up your living space or workspace. Keep your things clean and clutter-free. That helps us think clear and thus reducing levels of anxiety. 4. Say thank you often. Expressing your thanks for something helps reduce anxiety. 5. Eat smart. Eating more of foods which are rich in vitamin B and omega-3 fatty acids and also healthy whole grain carbs. Vitamin B contributes to good mental health. While omega 3 fatty acids help with both depression and anxiety. Whole grain foods boost serotonin and helps us remain poised. Eating high-sugar content food and processed foods can increase levels of anxiety. 6. Learn to breathe well and relax. Short, shallow breaths arise when you are tensed. So consciously breathing deeply, plus increasing the duration and depth of breathing helps relax the body and mind to a great extent. 7. Meditate. Meditation has so many positive effects on stress, mood, and anxiety. Club meditation with positive thinking to improve your general well-being and overall health. Yoga is also very effective to take off stress from the body and mind by deep relaxation and breathing techniques. 8. Chill and be silent. Reduce the noise and clutter talk that contributes to anxiety. Find time for yourself and be alone to muse upon your own matters without anyone disturbing you. 9. Worry. Yes, we can cause ourselves to freak out, but only for a certain amount of time. When something weighs heavily on your mind, or you believe something terrible is most definitely going to occur, commit to only creating that worry for 20 minutes. Think of all the possible outcomes of the scenario, figure out some game plans, and then quit thinking about it after 20 minutes go by. Have a friend call after the allotted time has passed to avoid the temptation of going over the time limit. Or schedule some of that playtime right afterward. 10. Plan for the future but do not worry about it. Make time tables and to-do lists so that you will not be worried about finishing stuff and so that you can increase your productivity. 11. Be positive. When you feel anxious, train your mind to think and feel positive and give reinforcement to yourself that you can handle any situation. This will significantly reduce your stress and anxiety symptoms. 12. Smell relaxing stuff. Go out to your garden. Smell a fresh rose. Take a deep breathe and allow the relaxation to course through your whole body. You can also use relaxing aroma therapy and use it indoors. 13. Go out and spend time with your friends and family. Spend time with your pets Social support reduces anxiety and stress to such a great extent that it is almost always bearable. So next time you get on your nerves, go out with your friends, chat with them, watch a movie, spend some time watching the waves in the beach with your partner, talk to your siblings. If you have tried all these and still have problems, please consult me for prescription medication.

Hello lybrate-user. First thing is to b self confident. As you are preparing for a competitive exam since 2 years. That shows your passion. I appreaciate you for not dropping the same even after 2 years of your preparations. So keep moving. Dnt bother about what others are telling, you are the person to decide your future. Convince your parents & siblings for the same. Be strong. Find time to engage in some other activities rather than studies, like listening music, gardening, cooking etc. Have faith in almighty. Do your prayers for atleast 15 minutes. Do pranayama, breathing exercise, meditation at early hours. It will help you to be fresh in whole day. Try hard, dream high. Success will be yours. Wishing you all the very best. Wishes & prayers. Take care.

It depends why the hypertension is there. A smal amount of alcohol might give the utmost relaxation which is very beneficial in combating hypertension. The patient can ofcourse follow a healthy restricted sodium diet and exercise.

Yoga, meditation, focus on work, eating healthy and exercise moderately, reading, writing, watching good programmes with less violence and hobbies help a person cope with anxiety, palpitations without pills. Get heart tested for basic tests like ecg, echo, stress test and blood tests for sugar and total lipids.

I have been struggling from heart burning from 1 year, so many time I have consulted but no use. What should I do?

BAMS, MD Ayurveda
Sexologist, Lonavala
Basil is also a good home remedy for chest pain. The magnesium in basil promotes blood flow by aiding the heart and blood vessels to relax. Plus, the antioxidant vitamin A in basil prevents the buildup of cholesterol in the blood vessel walls. During chest pain, chew 8 to 10 fresh basil leaves or drink a cup of basil tea to get relief. To prevent chest pain and improve the condition of your heart, take 1 teaspoon of fresh basil juice along with 1 teaspoon of honey daily on an empty stomach.

Hi ladies please can anyone reassure me? I have had mild heart palpitations for nearly 2 days now and am worrying myself to a frenzy. It all started after a strong coffee yesterday morning (i do not usually drink strong coffee) and since then Ive had a flutter every few minutes or so? I drank loads.

Diploma in Obstetrics & Gynaecology, MBBS
General Physician, Delhi
Caffeine in coffee does cause palpitations and you have been taking lots for past 2 days for reasons known to you only, knowing well that this is the reason for palpitations. No more coffee or cola or tea that has caffeine in it. Take lots of water to flush out remains. Take a tablet of metoprolol 50 mg twice daily for 2 days but no sleeping pills, the moment you feel calm, go to hospital to get basic heart tests done. If you feel any other associated symptom like chest pain, blackouts or vomiting, go to hospital as emergency.

I am 30years old male, 62kg, 156cms. My BP 135/80, is it high bp and how to control it for normal range, please suggest me.

MBBS, MD-General Medicine, DM - Cardiology
Cardiologist, Secunderabad
Hi, lybrate-user. Your bp is in the pre hypertensive stage. Some call it high normal bp also. Although you do not need medicine at this stage, but maintaining healthy lifestyle may help you reduce your bp. Which means you should exercise at least 30 minutes of moderate intesity either aerobics or light wt training, eat healthy diet containing less fats, salt and sugars and more of veg and fruits, avoid smoking, reduce stress and sleep adequately.
