I am diabetic what is the best remedy to cure the disease.

DHMS (Diploma in Homeopathic Medicine and Surgery)
Homeopath,
There is no any medicine for cure of diabetes but best medicine for control of sugar levels is your own mind and a good daily routine. In Spite of taking medicines your sugar levels r high. For this I will suggest you to start taking homoeopathic treatment along with. If these medicines click you then it will not only control your sugar levels but also enhances the quality of your life and you will feel more energetic. Diabonil (sbl) 20 drops in 20 ml fresh water 15 minutes before meal uranium nitricum 1x (wilmar schawe india) 2 tab twice daily direct in mouth and chew eat little at a time every 2-3 hourly. Don? t eat too much at a time brisk morning walk for 30 minutes regularly dinner 2 hours before going to sleep 10 minutes evening walk after dinner avoid sweets, mango, grapes, cold drinks in particular.

I am 58 years old and a diabetic and having hypothyroidism. I am taking metformin and thyroxine. I heard thyroxine reduces the absorption of metformin. Please advise whether I can continue the treatment ?

Critical Care Training, MD - Internal Medicine, MBBS
General Physician, Delhi
If your thyroid and sugar both under control, then don't think too much. Thyroxine is to be taken on empty stomach and metformin to be taken with food and both doesn' t have any interaction with each other.

I heard 2 cases recently where I was told by the patients themselves that they were non-vegetarian earlier. By this reason or that, they stopped it and followed strict veg diet. Meanwhile they developed Diabetes. When they consulted physicians, they were asked about earlier lifestyle and current lifestyle, the physicians asked them to resume non-vegetarian diet as the body was adjusted to non-veg diet and in its absence insulin insufficiency prevailed even though they had started taking alternate protein rich diet.

Mr. Lybrate-user, I am not aware of anything like that can happen. Change from non-vegetarian to vegetarian food causes any alteration in insulin secretion. This is most unlikely to happen. In fact many people are changing over to vegetarian diet as it is supposed to be better, but for proteins. I have not come across anything of that in any studies. Thanks.

Hello dear High triglycerides and 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. Change life style .do meditation,yoga, Go walk daily, do any one physically activity daily i.e.play any game., Avoid fast foods,oily foods,junk foods,alcohol,smoking,fatty foods, non-veg.,avoid stress,take plenty of water in day time. And 1 glass of water before bed at night. use flax oil, omega-3 fatty meal or cap., take .green veg., whole grain. Garlic,. Cod liver oil. Take anti cholesterol medicines . tab. zyloric 100 mg once a day for uric acid.

What is type 1 & type 2 diabetes what are the sugar reading for the same?

M.Sc -Food and Nutrition, B.Sc. - Dietitics / Nutrition
Dietitian/Nutritionist,
Hi , sugar or glucose readings for both are same. Se type 1 diabetes occurs when pancreas which is gland in a human body do not secreted insulin, so that the sugar level rises because of insulin which carrier of glucose which do not reaches glucose to cell and in type 2 diabetes pancreas could not secreted insulin enough amount or insulin get resist due to accumulation of fat in cell wall so insulin not able to reach glucose into cell, so then glucose rises in blood stream. Both are different. If you have any further queries, kindly consult via private questions. Best wishes

It is certainly not harmful. The point is whether it is useful. Just doing multiple tests per day (you did not mention whether you are doing it every day) does not help you. Keep a diary and share the readings with your doctor to analyse it give instructions. Do it again when and how frequently it should be done for your diabetes management. He is the best judge. As your, level variations can properly be analysed and measures recommended by a qualified and experienced doctor.

Hi , your fbs and ppbs both are high. So I advice for hba1c to know the exact status. Check your medicines do not contain any sort of steroids. Follow diet plan, less carb. Less fat, high fibers diet. Avoid oily, fast and junk food, cold drink and juices, and dairy products also. If hba1c is high drugs are mandatory. Have a regular exercise also.
