My daughter aged 14 years is type 1 diabetic diagnosed recently. She is taking insulin injections 3 to 4 times a day. Her hands and thighs are all full of injections pricks. Swelling has started now on the places where we try to give injections. Kindly suggest.

You can give insulin injection on the abdomen. You have to rotate the site of injection to avoid swelling. Suppose you give today on left top, tomorrow right top, then right down & so on.

Although most doctors recommend synthetic thyroxine, natural extracts containing thyroid hormone derived from the thyroid glands of pigs are available. These products contain both thyroxine and triiodothyronine. Synthetic thyroid medications contain thyroxine only, and the triiodothyronine your body needs is derived from the thyroxine. Extracts are available by prescription only and shouldn't be confused with the glandular concentrates sold in natural foods stores. These products aren't regulated by the Food and Drug Administration, and their potency and purity isn't guaranteed.

What medications are best for the treatment of Sugar? What are their side effects?

What medications are best for the treatment of Sugar? What are their side effects?
Lybrate-user, for treatment of diabetes best is insulin as the disease occurs due to either its deficiency or resistance to its action. However, choice of treatment depends on individual patients need and type of diabetes. T1 dm can only be treated by insulin injections there is no other treatment. T2 dm can be treated by either oral anti diabetes drugs alone or along with insulin. This will depend upon severity and response of the patient. Along with drug treatment regular exercise and diet control are equally important.

Hello Lybrate user according to ayurveda, Hypertension is referred to as Rakta Capa Vriddhi and it sees the vitiation of vata and pitta doshas as the main cause. Home Remedy- Mix 1 teaspoon of onion juice with an equal amount of honey. Take once a day for 1 week. Upon noticing improvement, continue for several more days. Treatment- 1-take sarpgandha vati twice a day. 2-yogendra ras. Akik bhasm works very good in case of hypertension. 3-Take pranacharya no tens capsule twice a day Diet-avoid salty diet. Oily food. Lower your stress. Do pranayama early morning.

Hi, Is there any Permanent Cure for diabetes. In 49 years old suffering since June 2011.

Hi, Is there any Permanent Cure for diabetes. In 49 years old suffering since June 2011.
Hello, There has been no permanent cure found yet for diabetes. But it can be adequately controlled by following a proper diet, exercise and taking your medicines as prescribed. Get your FBG and PPBG and HbA1C checked every 3 months. Get your retinal check, foot checks, kidney function tests, urine albuin creatinine ration and serum lipids checked atleast once a year. These tests will identify any complications of diabetes sooner and if found they can be managed earlier. Hope this helps you Thank you.

Be on strict diabetic diet. Perform regular exercises or go for 1hr walk daily. Get your sugar levels checked every month and visit your doctor at regular intervals for follow up. You can take 1tsf of methi powder mixed with water in the morning on empty stomach. Chew 5-6 neem leaves in the morning. Take bittergourd juice or koolkol juice (0ne glass) on empty stomach in the morning. All these will help to keep your sugar levels under control. Diabetes can only be controlled and cannot be cured. Hence it is not possible to remove it from your body.

Swethaji, Hypothyroidism is to be treated for life time. There is no question of stopping the treatment It has to be continued for life time.Plus you have to avoid soy beans, soy containing products, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, radish, peanuts, mustard and coffee. Consume more of green leafy vegetables and salads, fruits. Use whole grain flour for making chapati and roti. Exercise regularly to avoid weight increase.

A high uric acid level can be caused when your body either produces too much uric acid or your kidneys don't eliminate uric acid rapidly enough. A high uric acid level may cause increasingly frequent attacks of gout, or it may never cause problems. A high uric acid level may also cause some people to develop kidney stones or kidney failure. And some people with a high uric acid level also develop high blood pressure, heart disease or chronic kidney disease, but it's often unclear whether this is a direct cause or merely an early warning sign of these conditions. Factors that may cause a high uric acid level in your blood include: Diuretic medications (water pills),Drinking too much alcohol,Genetics (inherited tendencies),hypothyroidism (underactive thyroid),Immune-suppressing drugs,Niacin, or vitamin B-3, obesity,psoriasis, Purine-rich diet — organ meat, game meat, anchovies, herring, gravy, dried beans, driedpeas, mushrooms and other foods Renal insufficiency — inability of the kidneys to filter waste Tumor lysis syndrome — a rapid release of cells into the blood caused by certain cancers or by chemotherapy for those cancers,Also, you may be monitored for high uric acid levels when undergoing chemotherapy or radiation treatment for cancer. Avoid protein diets, avoid more milk products. bad habits , fast food/fat/oily,salty foods. Coffee, smoking, alcohol intake. Non-veg., take whole grain,oats,green veg.,plenty of water in day time, 1 glass of water at night before bed. Take tab. Zyloric 100 mg once a day. Tab. Ulracet sos for pain in joints.

How to control sugar which I am having from last six months. Its about 320 at present.
Hello, to control blood sugar one has to take appropriate medicine, which can be oral anti diabetic drugs or insulin injections. Plus restricted diet and daily exercise of at least 1 hour, these are needed. Blood sugar of 320 mg is very high. You need to upgrade the treatment. Ideally when in good control fasting sugar should be around 100 mg, pp 150 to 160 mg and hbac% <7. Please understand diabetes is a disease which if not controlled effectively damages eyes, small and large blood vessels, kidneys, nerves, heart and affects lower limbs very badly. Excess blood sugar is definitely dangerous. So please initiate proper treatment and control it.

Mr. lybrate-user, Gutka is bad for everybody, more so for a person with diabetes. Even in normal person it is associated with conditions like fibroscitis, where cheek muscles harden and opening the mouth becomes difficult. Plus there are a large number of oral and tongue cancers reported in people consuming gutka. In a diabetic person generally immune system is a bit vulnerable, so gutka can cause serious damage.
