If a person is suffering from diabetes what health recondition should given to her/him.
Increase thirst, increased frequency of urination are some initial symptoms of diabetes but it can vary from being completely asymptomatic to non specific symptoms like weakness, tingling in feet, dry mouth, blurry vision, burning during urination. You need to follow a healthy lifestyle to prevent such metabolic diseases. Type 1 usually occurs at younger age due to insulin deficiency and treated with insulin injections. Type 2 usually in adults due to insulin resistance and treated with oral medicines. It can't be cured completely but you can keep it controlled by taking these precautions.

One at a time.1) Malaria is a fever and parasite causing it is transmitted through bite of mosquito, there is No human to human transmission. Diabetes is abnormally high levels of sugar in the blood , extra sugar comes out of body through urine and damages the kidneys and other organs including heart and blood vessels. DM is of 3 types , juvenile or type 1- young are affected, Type 2 , elders are affected 3) gestational-pregnant women are affected. Diabetes is due to less insulin produced by an organ called pancreas in the abdomen. Type 1 & 3 are controlled by injections of Insulin only ,All 3 require diet therapy along with medicines . Your 3rd query is about heart attack blockage in artery due to cholesterol something ?? Yes high levels of cholesterol are responsible for causing blockages in blood vessels but this is One of the important causes. Rest of the causes - get back here with your doubts .

Hi drink some bitter gourd juice on an empty stomach each morning. First remove the seeds of two to three bitter gourds and use a juicer to extract the juice. Add some water and then drink it. Follow this treatment daily in the morning for at least two months. Take pranacharya diabeto and shilajeet capsule twice a day with water. Take vasant kusumakar ras twice a day. Avoid sweets. Take small meals in less time interval. Do pranayama early morning. Avoid alcohol consumption.

Why for Type II Diabetics quantum of a insulin to be injected before dinner is much less than before breakfast?

Why for Type II Diabetics quantum of a insulin to be injected before dinner is much less than before breakfast?
As your meals are mostly during day time n so the risk of blood glucose getting high also rises. So morning dose is usually higher. But it depends on person to person.

What is symptoms of diabetes. I think I'm suffering from it. Please give me right symptoms which show this.
invariably diabetes does not produce any symptoms which are easily recognisable, that is one of the reasons why most people miss it. But when fully developed it may cause excess thirst, excess urination, excess hunger, unexplained weight loss and tiredness. On getting the blood test done high blood glucose is seen. Fasting >126 mg, pp >200 mg and hba1c>6.5 % is diagnostic for diabetes.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Diabetes mellitus is the official name of the condition which occurs due to insulin deficiency leading to excess blood glucose. People in general refer it as "sugar problem" Thanks.

Study has revealed that for type 2 diabetes risk, where you live matters

Study has revealed that for type 2 diabetes risk, where you live matters
A new study has revealed that for type 2 diabetes risk, where you live matters.

The university of california san francisco study found that living in a neighborhood with resources to support exercise and with access to healthy food was linked to a lower incidence of type 2 diabetes, medpage today reported. 

Researchers found that 12 percent of the more than 5, 000 people in the study developed diabetes within the average 8.9 years of follow-up, but patients who lived in areas that had access to more physical activity resources and healthy foods had a lower risk of developing diabetes. 

The social environment of a neighborhood was not associated with the incidence of type 2 diabetes, found the researchers, who were led by paul christine. 

Researchers nancy adler and aric prather wrote in an accompanying editorial that they do not yet know what elements of neighborhoods are most essential for generating better health, these researchers provide important clues about which elements have an effect and for whom. 

They noted that the risk for type 2 diabetes mellitus is a combination of both person and place, and the national strategies need to understand and intervene across these levels. 

Christine and colleagues also found that environmental resources mattered differently to those with higher and lower incomes. Poorer patients in areas being viewed as having less social activity and as being more dangerous to go outside in were more likely to develop type 2 diabetes, but overall, neighborhood safety and social cohesion were" largely unassociated" with diabetes. 

The results suggest that modifying specific features of neighborhood environments, including increasing the availability of healthy foods and physical activity resources, may help to mitigate the risk for t2dm, added researchers.

Hi my aunt, got diagnosed with diabetes last saturday and she is having pain in legs from long time so we consult doctor and found sugar level on 355 on saturday and 325 on monday. Could you please suggest what can be done here to bring down the sugar level in body as the doctor to whom we are consulting is just prescribing medicine and there is no significant change in situation so far?

I think your aunt require immediate medical attention. First of all her sugar levels must be kept normal either by insulin or any other medicine prescribed by your doctor. Consult an endocrinologist. In case of severe medical attention, homoeo medicines can be taken as helping medicine. Once you r out of your crital position please try to get rid of the trong allopathic mediciness as soon as possible with side by side taking homoeo medicines.

Hello, yes you don't have thyroid disorder called (euthyroid. But please do complete urine examination in good lab, because the pain in penile region may be either due to urine infection or I think you have some phobia or anxiety or feeling of guilty because you may have practiced masturbation in the past. Please be opened, give your history completely and tell your symptoms openly.

Multi vitamins re useful in any situation. However, it is more beneficial to rely on natural fresh foods rich in natural easy to absorb and digest vitamins than rely on chemical based un-natural supplements.
