I am having diabetic (type2) since 18 years and BP since 12 years. I am under insulin and medication for both. The sensation in the foot is slightly reduced and as advised by doctor, I am using MCR footwear within house also. Last week, I had to visit a temple where I walked without footwear for about 100 feet, but with socks. Though I was very carefully walking, but some objects like stone or like that must pressed without my knowledge, though no injury but I am having leg pain till waist (left leg). But I am doing my regular activities like walking, driving, but with pain. Is there any treatment is required . Normally I am avoiding the places where I need to go barefoot. But this time it was a important family function & not having any choice. Please advise me sir.

Footcare is no doubt very important for diabetic patients. Since you r chronically diabetic & hypertensive, u r prone for peripheral neuropathy wherein u get all these symptoms. I advise you to use the following oils from Arya Vaidya Sala Kottakkal, for regular external application:- Prabhanjana vimardanam + valiya narayana thailam ( mix both the oils , warm it & apply in both the legs in upward direction , for 10 minutes, leave it on for 1 hour and wash it off with warm water, daily once or twice).

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. When food is taken, it takes about 1.5 to 2 hours for that food to be broken down to glucose. That is why PP blood glucose level is asked to be taken after 2 hours. So it will be higher than that shown just after half an hour. The mentioned levels are too high, can cause serious problems. Thanks.

Can I get cured from hypothyroidism by other forms of medicine neglecting allopathy? I don't have it in my family. I got it after consumption of tabs to kill gut parasites. I had continuous diarrhea for 3 months, then after three months I put on 20 kilos face swollen allergy and diagnosed with hypothyroidism. My family members aged 89 living no signs of this disease in anyone. I think thyroid got attacked by my system after diarrhea since my diet is more of wheat.

Hypothyroidism now a days is more an iodine deficiency disease, but it has become an autoimmune disease. In homoeopathy we give the medicine which makes the body generator, an adequate thyroid level, so that gradually body resume it's original functionality which is visible through the thyroid level test time to time, and gradually you can get rid of your altroxin as well, and may be after sometime you can stop homoeopathy medicine as your thyroid level remains normal afterwards. Avoid cabbage, cauliflower, soya in food.

Problems---1. Ht block, 2. Dilated aorta, high blood sugar associated. These are dangerous combination. They have released block by putting stents, but dilated aorta will give you trouble if you work hard. Only sedentary work is permitted along with full change of life style including intake of food & liquids. Sugar must be controlled with proper medicine other wise that will lead to reat catastrophy.

Homeopath, Hyderabad
In general, thyroid means it either be hypo or hyper. But mostly we see hypo only in people, people who have thyroid dysfunctioning are need to take care of diet, they should consume proper levels of iodine in their diet. They should follow particular exercises. Consumption of coffee, tea should be minimised& regular exercises should be followed to maintain the proper wt/ht ratio. Regular tests for tsh is mandatory to follow up the progress. Intake of calcium& d vitamin supplements {preferably in food source] is mandatory.

Mr Rajesh, If she has hypothyroidism then it should be controlled by taking thyroxine tablets in proper dosage and that too for life time. The dose depends on body weight and TSH level. If she wants to become pregnant, then it more important that TSH level has to be brought down to just around 2 milli units/ ml. This is the only way.

Mr. Lybrate-user, it is better to consult a competent surgeon, based on his opinion, further treatment can be done. If the enlarged spleen is affecting stomach functioning, he would be the better expert to advise. Do not delay. In the mean time also take care to maintain his blood glucose strictly. Thanks.

Herbal tea with ginger is beneficial for thyroid functioning. In fact, beverages including coffee, tea, carbonated drinks and alcohols should be avoided by patients afflicted with thyroid disorders. In its place herbal tea may be an alternative option. Application of watercress's paste on the enlarged neck is also an effective remedy.

Lybrate-user, looking at the test results given following are high - triglycerides, ggt and tsh. This means you have hypothyroidism (tsh 20.5mu/l), which needs immediate treatment. Secondly high triglycerides (tgl) also needs to be checked. Ideally tgl should be less than 150 mg. High ggt value points to a problem with liver, particularly with alcohol drinking. Thanks.

As to why our waists are thickening preferentially, there is no decisive answer. Dr. Ford and colleagues speculate in their article about a number of potential explanations. I am inclined to think that a shift toward diets featuring ever more high-glycemic starches and added sugars is among the smoking guns. High glycemic diets trigger elevations of insulin, and among its many effects, insulin favors the deposition of calories around the middle.
And at that point, the plot thickens along with our waistlines. The deposition of those excess calories as fat around our middles, and in particular in our livers, leads directly to insulin resistance, and higher levels of insulin still. That, in turn, fosters more accumulation of centrally distributed fat, and a degenerating spiral ensues that leads to diabetes, and nowhere good

Diabetic patient should aovid sugar, jaggery (gur, honey.He should aoid sweet fruits like banana, mangoe,grapes, cheekoo,dates etc. High fibre diet whih includes lots of vegetables and salad are good. Meals should be small and frequent. Bread/chapati made of whole grain floor are better than refined (Maida).

Hello, biscuits are really not a healthy food. If you need fiber use vegetables, fruits, flax seeds, fenugreek seeds and whole grain products. There is hardly a need for instant energy, if your diet is balanced and healthy. Thanks for the question.

lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. The mentioned blood glucose level is absolutely normal. Pre-diabetic range is FBG 108 to 125 mg, PP 141 to 199 mg & HbA1c% 5.9 to 6.4. Since you are not in that category, there is no reason to worry. However, you have maintain normal weight, take properly balanced diet and exercise regularly to avoid getting diabetes. Diabetes can come even without any family history, particularly if the patient overweight or obese plus being inactive that is not doing any exercise. Hence, please be active and control your weight. Thanks.

combination of the above medicines is ok, and they are essential for your well being. Precaution is only diet and enviroment. you should have good ventilation in the house. prevent musty and dark areas in your house. you need to take good protinous and nutritious diet. though you are diabetic and under food restriction you need to take nutritious diet for recovery from tb, so except sugar and sweets, take sufficient quatity of food what ever that is cooked in the house add some proteins like milk, non veg, eggs etc., and basing on the sugar levels increase the dosage to diabetic medicines. Have some physical activity like walking and yoga etc.,for tb apart from medicines diet is an important factor.
