Hi your hba1c% looks fairly good, it means blood sugar is in good control. However, honey in diabetes is not advisable, particularly if the quantity is more. A few ml is fine. You have not mentioned what is the quantity advised. Your bmi 29.96 kgs/m2 is closer to be grade 1 obesity. Hence, weight reduction is a must. I have no idea about honey and vinegar helping in weight reduction, but proper dietary restriction, taking exact amount of calories based on ideal body weight (67 kgs), plus regular exercise of at least 1 hour a day, cutting down high carb diet will be more beneficial. Once your weight goes down, diabetes control will be much better. Thanks for the question.

Dear Mr. Lybrate-user. Once you are diagnosed with diabetes you have to take medicine continously inorder to keep your blood sugar within normal limits. You should also avoid starch rich foods such as rice, potato, etc. You must take homeopathic mother tincture uranium nit q, 60 drops, thrice daily, with water, after meal. In case you don't find the aforesaid medicine in local homeopathic retail medicine shop you can try homeopathic uranium nit 3x tablets (r. S. Bhargava), 4 tablets, thrice daily in empty stomach. This is the best medicine for diabetes in homeopathy.

Hello sir. My mother is a diabetic patient and she is suffering from it since 2014. She is 45-year-old and she is taking glynase- MF but not getting proper results. Her fasting is 300 and sometimes her heart beats get faster during sleep. Can you suggest me how to deal with it.

Hello, Thanks for the query. If fasting blood glucose is 300 mg, then it is really very badly controlled diabetes. That can lead to a number of serious long term complications related to various vital organs and systems. It is clear that her present treatment is not at all helping her. There has to be an up gradation of therapy with some additional drugs. For suggesting the same I need to know the following: current fasting, PP blood glucose levels, HbA1c%, dietary pattern and extent of daily exercise being done. So please come in a private conversation with all these details, then I will be able to give specific advice and prescriptions. In this communication I am supposed to give only general guidelines, which she will have to follow meticulously. Thanks.

Mr. lybrate-user, It has to be properly investigated to see if goitre is causing hypothyroidism or thyrotoxicity. So by simply mentioning goitre no medicine can be prescribed. Plus in this communication we are supposed to give only general guidelines and no prescriptions. Hence, if you are (your friend) looking for specific treatment advise, then please come back with following details: Thyroid assay results, body weight, height and details of any symptoms experienced. Thanks.

2 types of dates are available in stores. One type is with full juice, the other one is juice extracted and dried type which is a bit hard to remove outer skin. I want to know whether the dried ones give the same benefits like juicy ones as they are too sweet and may not be good for borderline sugar persons.

Hi Dates are sweet, whether it's dry or fresh. Dried dates are deliberately dehydrated to remove their moisture and increase their shelf life. It is rich in calcium, iron and fibre when compared to fresh juicy dates. However it's carbohydrate content is high and hence high in calories. Having 1 or 2 fresh dates once in few days can be beneficial but with a good control of diabetes.

lybrate-user, Thanks for the query, For patients with hypothyroidism only soy beans and soy containing products are to be avoided. All other foods, fruits and seeds are fine. You can definitely take all those things mentioned. Most important is your TSH should be maintained between 3 to 4 mU/L to be free from all the symptoms of hypothyroidism. Thanks.

There is no specific normal or abnormal level of PSA in the blood. In the past, most doctors considered PSA levels of 4.0 ng/mL and lower as normal. Therefore, if a man had a PSA level above 4.0 ng/mL, doctors would often recommend a prostate biopsy to determine whether prostate cancer was present.Thirteen per cent of men over 55 have a PSA level of ≥ 4 ng/ml but this does not automatically mean you have cancer. An elevated level can also be due to other conditions, such as benign enlargement of the prostate (BPH), a urinary tract infection or a prostate infection. But it is advisable to a needle biopsy of prostate

Your sexual problem is because of diabetic neuropathy and irrational combination of antihypertensive drugs.Usually these drugs are not combined n propranolol is contraindicated in diabetes because it disturbs lipid profile and masks symptoms of hypoglycaemia.Consult your treating doctor n get modified your antihypertensive drugs.

LACK OF SLEEP AND TYPE 2 DIABETES.Those who sleep less are at greater risk of developing diabetes.Lack of sleep has been found to elevate free fatty acids in the blood accompanied by prediabetic conditions in healthy adult. There is some connection between lack of sleep,weight gain and diabeties.Lack of sleep,a highly prevelant condition in moderen society ,will reduce fat metabolism,thus increasing free fatty acid in blood and decreasing the ability of insulin to regulate sugar levels.Minimum of 6 hours good sleep is required to prevent this .
