I am 68 Years male, having diabetes since long back. Use of insulin was started from the year 2003, with 6 units of insulin 3 times daily. Gradually the intake of insulin increased, currently, I am consuming Mixtard 30/70 insulin 3 times a day with 20 units each time. Two years ago I underwent bypass surgery. Recently I have tested sugar levels from a lab (Fasting & after lunch) Reports are 142 Mg% & 242 Mg %.Along with this test, I have done HbA1c test and report is 10.2%, which is considered poor control .For deep monitoring, I have started testing at home at fasting, after breakfast, after lunch & after dinner. Observation is mentioned below. 14.12.2016 - 145, 310, 285, 240 15.12.2016 - 152, 317, 267 16.12.2016 - 129, 232, 207, 305 17.12.2016 - 156, 329, 248, 242 Kindly advise me, how much insulin should I take to keep blood sugar level in a normal range? Should I take rapid-acting insulin once in a day to maintain BSL in a normal range?

Mixtard 30/70 is 12 hr insulin and should be given twice daily. Considering your current reports your post meal sugars are high throughout day. Ideally you should be on basal bolus regimen (glargine as basal and rapid acting insulins like lispro as bolus before each meals) alternatively some OHAs like voglibose or gliptins can be tried for post meal peaks. It is advisable to consult a good diabetologist for managing your sugars as more detail history needed for optimum control.

Homeopathy and Hypothyroidism

B.H. M. S.

Homeopathy and Hypothyroidism

Hypothyroidism refers to the lack of thyroid hormones in your body. Hypothyroidism is caused when the thyroid gland of your body is unable to produce the thyroid hormones like T3 (triiodothyronine) and T4 (thyroxine). Hypothyroidism can occur due to the inflammation of the thyroid gland or as a result of previous thyroid treatments, where a major portion of the thyroid producing cells has been removed. Hypothyroidism is more common in women. But, it can develop in any person irrespective of age or sex.

The symptoms of hypothyroidism are as follows:

  1. Fatigue
  2. Increased feeling of cold
  3. Dryness of skin
  4. Constipation
  5. Depression
  6. Obesity
  7. Increased blood cholesterol level
  8. Your muscles may be become weak and you may suffer from muscle pain
  9. Disruption in menstrual cycle.

Though these are the common symptoms, but it may vary from person to person. Hypothyroidism is a very common problem and homeopathy offers a very safe, painless and effective treatment for hypothyroidism.

The following are few of the homeopathic remedies for hyperthyroidism:

  1. Calcarea Carbonica: This medicine is advised to people suffering from obesity and increased sensitiveness to cold temperature.
  2. Sepia Officinalis: This medicine is suggested to people suffering from irregular menstrual cycle and increased sensitivity to cold.
  3. Nux Vomica: Nux vomica is prescribed when the patient shows symptom of depression.
  4. Lycopodium Clavatum: This medicine is given to people having gastric troubles or encountering excessive hair fall.

Along with these, there are various other medicines such as Iodium, thyroidinum, spongia, lycopus and lapis albus. But it is highly recommended for you to visit a homeopathic physician to receive correct advice before taking any medication by yourself.

Kindly get your TSH levels after taking the medication regularly in the prescribed dose for a minimum period of 3 months. If the TSH is still raised you may need to increase the dose but all this has to be under supervision of expert in thyroid disease since these are hormones and minor alteration in their dose can have impact on overall metabolism of the body. As far as weight issue is there, people with hypothyroidism loose weight at the initiation of therapy since there is water loss from beneath the skin (body swelling becomes less). This may happen for around 6 weeks. Thereafter the weight stabilizes. Any further weight loss if desired is possible only with dietary modification and exercise. Hope this helps.

Is it true whether a person with diabetes Will seize to participate in sex with partner?

Is it true whether a person with diabetes Will seize to participate in sex with partner?
Hi Diabetics can enjoy a healthy and active sexual life with good control of diabetes. Diabetes when not controlled causes sexual dysfunction because of endothelial (inner lining of blood vessels) damage thereby causing damage to the blood vessels and nerves. If sex drive is reduced first we need to look into the control of diabetes and blood pressure. Also look at the medication list as some medications can have a side effect of causing sexual dysfunction. Maintain a healthy diet (lots of fruit, fresh vegetables and nuts) and exercise regularly to have a healthy sexual life.

Is Miller lite beer 2 bottles per day good/bad for a type 2 diabetic. And what would be its effect on human body.

MBBS, MD - Aerospace Medicine, Eular Certification in Rheumatology

Is Miller lite beer 2 bottles per day good/bad for a type 2 diabetic. And what would be its effect on human body.
dear friend A pint of lite beer contains 128 Calories, since these are empty calories which mean they cannot be stored they will take precedence to be metabolized and sugar will be kept on hold, in this manner and along with beer the snacks one consumes adds to the calorie load and causes the calorie imbalance, per say they do not have any direct effect, if you are taking your medications regularly, and keeping your blood sugar under control , your Hb A1 C is in range, food that you take logically does not matter, but if any of the parameters i mentioned afore are off then it will matter, my suggestion will be keep your calorie intake under check and be regular with your followup and medication you can indulge in a beer or to you need any further clarification and want to discuss please ask a private consult where we are connected directly and can discuss more freely

Balanced diet is important, containing carbs, proteins and fat in proper proportion. If you want to develop strong body and muscular one apart from eating well, it is necessary to exercise under the guidance of a competent physical instructor at a gym. Then also include extra proteins (6 - 8 eggs a day), reduce fried foods and increase intake of fruits and dry fruits.
