To keep asthma at bay, steroids are required and steroids increases sugar. Avoid oral steroids and have steroid based inhalers do brisk walking for 45 min daily for atleast 5 days a week it will help both in asthma and diabetes.

The toothache you are referring to may be due to a variety of causes, the most common being: 1.Tooth decay 2. Tooth fracture 3. A damaged filling 4. Infected gums The most common cause is a long-standing cavity or tooth decay, which usually requires a root canal treatment (RCT). The same treatment applies to a tooth fracture as well. In case of a damaged filling, there may be two possibilities: either the filling can be removed and replaced with a new one after applying a soothing base material; or if the damaged filling is placed deep near the nerves of the tooth, it may require an RCT. Infected gums usually are treated with deep cleaning/scaling after which there is permanent relief from pain. I suggest that that you consult me privately on Lybrate, so that I can provide more specific answers. You will be able to send across images of your aching tooth/teeth, and looking at them will help me be in a better position to solve your problem.

I can understand with your issue, that you travel a lot and you mostly have outside food, that's the main culprit for your whole issue. Medicine is for those who cannot control their diet, but you wish and are willing I suggest you to like eat plenty of salads like carrot, beetroot and raddish. These will improve your digestive enzymes and you should feel better.

It's difficult to decide the type of diabetes from the info provided. At your age, type 2 or mody are the commonest types. However, type 1 could also occur, though less common. The only way to decide would be to do the following tests: 1) serum c peptide 2) gad-65 antibodies 3) hba1c.

hi, I am a registered dietitian, certified diabetes educator and a doctor (general physician) who will help you in your diabetes problem. Do let me know your hba1c value? also you need to provide me your daily food intake details.

I being a registered dietitian and doctor have been successfully helping patients with their diabetes problem. I will also prescribe medicines that will speed up the time to achieve your weight management goals. Do reply back for private consultation.

This is good but Diabetes affects all organs in the body – Eyes, kidneys, nerves, reproductive system all are affected, In fact, from toe to hair. For diabetic control, patient and doctor should be in constant touch for regular follow up and advice. The common symptoms are:-Both types of diabetes have some of the same tell-tale warning signs. Hunger and fatigue. Your body converts the food you eat into glucose that your cells use for energy. But your cells need insulin to bring the glucose in. If your body doesn't make enough or any insulin, or if your cells resist the insulin your body makes, the glucose can't get into them and you have no energy. This can make you more hungry and tired than usual. Urinating more often and being thirstier. The average person usually has to pee between four and seven times in 24 hours, but people with diabetes may go a lot more. Dry mouth and itchy skin. Because your body is using fluids to make pee, there's less moisture for other things. You could get dehydrated, and your mouth may feel dry. Dry skin can make you itchy. Blurred vision. Changing fluid levels in your body could make the lenses in your eyes swell up. They change shape and lose their ability to focus. Diabetes, often referred to by doctors as diabetes mellitus, describes a group of metabolic diseases in which the person has high blood glucose (blood sugar), either because insulin production is inadequate, or because the body's cells do not respond properly to insulin, or both. It is a difficult task to control blood sugar in the desired normal range. Whatever we eat is metabolised to sugar in the body to provide energy for our daily activities. For the absolute control, one has to monitor his / her blood sugar at regular intervals (Self-Monitoring of Blood glucose – SMBG). Though difficult, this can be done by a glucometer and keep a record. Get an idea of Fasting sugar (FBS) and 2 hours after food (PPBS), & HbA1C (inform me) and check before dinner and after every major food. The basic idea is to reduce the food intake to 1/3 of what you take now. The dictum of sugar control is diet, exercise, diet + medicine and at later stage medicine+ Insulin will be needed. There are different diet plans of varying calories for each person depending on his activity & life style. For diabetes, hypertension (high BP) and many long-term illness control there is the need for regular advice and follow up. Just one time consultation or advice is not enough to guide a diabetic in scientifically & medically correct manner. For giving you regular follow up you ask me with all details like your daily eating pattern and medicines you take. I assure you a proper guidance. If you keep in touch personally.

Im high blood pressure and diabetes patient how I decrease both this by food and exercise?

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology

Im high blood pressure and diabetes patient how I decrease both this by food and exercise?
Mr Debu, For treating both hypertension and diabetes taking prescribed drugs is essential. If you are already on drug treatment, then only the diet control and exercise will provide additional benefit. If you are looking for only diet and exercise without any drug treatment, then i am not sure whether there is any benefit. For hypertension your diet should contain less of salt (not more than 2.3 g a day). Our average diet gives almost 8 to 10 g of salt. (Sodium chloride). This means all food preparations made at home should contain minimal salt, no salt on table, no salt to be added to salads or fruits. No processed foods as all those contain very high quantity of salt. No pickles and papads, no salty substances fried shave or chivada etc. For diabetes your diet should give exact calories based on your Ideal Body Weight, blood sugar levels and extent of daily physical activity.You should avoid sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods and pastries. Refrain from alcohol and smoking, red meat and egg yolk. Plus at lest 1 hour of exercise on all days of the week or at least on 5 days.

I am having a diabetes. What should I do to control this problem? And please give me a diet chart.
Dear lybrate user, *factors that are often responsible for causing diabetes are excessive intake of foods which are difficult to digest, such as fried foods, creams, etc. Lack of exercise, mental stress and strain, excessive sleep, overeating and consequent obesity, excessive intake of sugar and refined carbohydrates, overloading of proteins and fats can also lead to diabetes. Hereditary factors also play role in causing diabetes. *dry the leaves of mango tree and grind to a powder. Mix 1 teaspoon dry powder in a glass of water and drink it daily to reduce high blood sugar levels. *take 2 teaspoons of bitter gourd (karela) juice once a day. One can also increase its use as a cooked vegetable. *start doing some light exercise, such as brisk walking. Build up to a brisk walk of 30-40 minutes in the morning and again in the evening. *avoid sleeping in the daytime *use garlic, onion, bitter gourd, spinach, raw banana, and black plum.

Your fasting blood sugar level seems to be high compared to ppblood sugar. Advice: 1. Low calorie sugar free diet to be followed at all times. 2. Walking half hour every day 3. Drink plenty of water. 4. Sleep well at night, stress to be avoided. 5. This condition to be hyperinsulinemia state, small dose tablets like tab. Metformin 0.5g sr once daily can be taken 6. After following the above advices, check blood sugar after 25days and review with results. Thankyou.
