Dear lybrate user, only home remedies may not be sufficient enough to lower your blood sugar level. If home remedies could lower the blood sugar then there won't be such worldwide research on diabetes. Home remedies help to confine your blood sugar level to a certain extent. But if you want to lower your blood sugar level then you will surely need some medicine. Take homoeopathic mother tincture gymnemma sylvestra q, 30 drops, thrice daily, after meals, in a cup of water.

Hi Persistent very high blood sugar values may need short intensive insulin therapy. Bring the blood sugars under good control with insulin and then put them back on oral medications. You must understand that diabetes is a progressive disease and all patients require insulin at some point in life to control diabetes when multiple oral medications do not help.

Hi First of all you seem to be underweight with the details mentioned. Improving your weight and controlling your diabetes helps in sexual enhancement. Exercise regularly and follow a proper diet which includes a lot of fresh vegetables, greens and fruits. Imbalance of electrolytes like your sodium, potassium, chloride can cause stiffening of your toes or cramps in legs. Uncontrolled diabetes damages the nerves. So keep your diabetes under control and you need to get a routine blood investigations to look into your blood count, electrolyte levels and hormone levels.

Mr. lybrate-user, If you have acute attack of gout, then you need to control the pain and inflammation with certain antiinflammatory drugs preferably with an injection. Then follow it up with tablets till the severity of acute attack is controlled. This is possible only with visiting your local doctor. Then you may also have to take drugs to reduce uric acid concentration in the blood. Plus avoid high purine (high protein) containing foods like organ meat, red meat, certain sea foods like sardines, salmon, scallops, herrings, haddock, mushrooms and mussels. Also avoid alcohol and aerated drinks (colas). Thanks.

When on treatment with thyroxine tsh levels should be maintained between 3 to 4 milli units/ml. Once the treatment is started, it is necessary to check tsh level after 6 to 8 weeks. I think you have done it, and still the tsh is showing a higher level. It means current dose is inadequate. If you give details of her tsh level when diagnosis was made along with her height and weight, I can guide in terms of correct dose for her. But even otherwise she needs to increase the dose. Initially tsh needs to be checked every 6 to 8 weeks, till it is brought to desired level as mentioned above. With regards.

Your father's condition can be classified as pre diabetes also known as impaired glucose tolerance. He is at increased risk of developing frank diabetes. So for now life style modifications like low sugar and fat diet, daily 30-40 minute brisk exercise etc along with blood sugar check up at least every 6 months is recommended. If sugar level does not come down to normal range, prophylactic metformin regimen would be considered. Thank you.
