I am pre diabetic. My blood sugar level is fasting 125 and pp 162. What precautions should i take?

PGDHM, PGCDM, MD - Internal Medicine, MBBS
General Physician, Ahmedabad
Hello You are Pre Diabetic, and you have both Impaired fasting glycemia and impaired glucose tolerance. You need to take all dietary precautions and life style modifications in same way as Diabetics dose, Evidences suggest that almost 50 % of Pre Diabetics get converted to Diabetics over 5 years duration so you need to recheck Blood sugar levels regularly while observing all life style modification and closely monitor the fluctuations. Thanks Dr Joozer Rangwala

Hi I'm Irshad want to know how I control my sugar level bcoz I have diabetic patient.
I recommend to control your sugar level 1) have regular meals. Divide your meals into 5 to 6 times. 2) one teaspoon of methi seeds soaked overnight in 100 ml of water is very effective in controlling diabetes 3) good fats such as omega-3 and monounsaturated fats (mufa) should be consumed as they are good for the body. 4) diet should be high in fiber. Let whole grain cereals & flour, salad vegetables, green leafy vegetables & fruits be an integral part of your meals.

Mother is 45 years old. And have diabetes. What to eat to cure it? please advise.
If diabetes is diagnosed then she has to take specific treatment based on her blood sugar levels. There is no cure, medicine has to be taken for life time. For further guide lines please tell me her weight, height, waist circumference and blood sugar levels fasting and pp and hba1c % and any medication if being taken.

Mr. Lybrate-user, amoxyclav 625 should be taken 3 tablets a day for at least 5 days or longer to get complete relief from any infection including tonsillitis, pharyngitis etc. Another thing to be remembered is that cough usually takes a bit longer to go away. There is no need to change or another antibiotic. Thanks.

89 mg / 100 ml is a normal sugar level. This does not give any idea why should there be all those symptoms as mentioned. Please mention following details: fasting. Pp sugar levels (current), hba1c%, weight, height, drugs being taken with dosage. Level of physical activity, dietary pattern and any other disease along with diabetes.

Infertility in Men and Women - Is Homeopathy Equipped to Treat it?

Infertility in Men and Women - Is Homeopathy Equipped to Treat it?

Infertility refers to the inability to conceive after having sex without protection. The biological inability of a man or a woman to contribute to conception and carry a full-term pregnancy may also be referred to as infertility. Among the various treatments for infertility, homeopathy accounts for being an effective one in both men and women.

Homeopathic medicines for infertility in women

  1. Homeopathic medicines for infertility because of acid vaginal charges: Borax and Natrum Phos are considered to be the best homeopathic medicines for infertility in women because of acid vaginal charges. These medicines are used when the vaginal discharges are destructive, acrid and kills sperms. Borax is used when the discharge is like egg white, copious and warm and it helps in easy conception. Natrum Phos is used when the discharge is acrid, creamy or honey colored.
  2. Homeopathic medicines for infertility because of prolonged and profuse periods: Calcarea Carb and Aletris Farionosa are used in case of too much prolonged, too profuse menstrual periods and periods which occur before time. Early mensus are experienced by patients. Anemia, leucorrhea, fatigues, tiredness and weakness may be experienced with menorragia.

Homeopathic medicines for infertility in men:

  1. Homeopathic medicines for infertility in men with erectile dysfunction: There are several effective homeopathic medicines for this purpose. Agnus Castus is used when a man’s sexual desire and physical ability is low and the genitals stay relaxed, cold and flaccid. Caladium is best when infertility or impotency occurs due to mental depression. In this case, the genitals stay relaxed and weak erection is observed. Selenium is another efficient homeopathic medicine for erectile dysfunction in cases of slow and weak erections. Involuntary semen discharge may also be experienced.
  2. Homeopathic medicines for infertility in men with low sperm count: X-ray is the most effective homeopathic medicine for treating low sperm count in men. Sperm count gets increased and both the quantity and quality of sperm are enhanced.
  3. Homeopathic medicines for infertility in men with orchitis: Conium is an ideal homeopathic medicine for treating infertility in men with orchitis. The testicles are swollen, enlarged and become hard. Conium also helps when a patient has a history of suppressed sexual desire.

Homeopathy is the most natural treatment for fertility in men and women, with no side effects on the body. Homeopathic medicine works with following rule of the nature's law of cure and these medicines work naturally without producing any harm to the body. You should consult a homeopathic practitioner before taking any homeopathic remedy for infertility.

Hi, several strategies for better sugar control. Some of them below: 1. Small, frequent meals through the day 2. Physical activity 180 minutes/week 3. Break the pattern of stuffing and starving and eat each meal only till you feel comfortably full as opposed to completely stuffed hope this helps.

Dear, unfortunately, there is no method to remove the stone. However, diabetes can be well controlled with appropriate medications. Pl. Follow up regularly with your diabetologist who can help you to control your blood sugars. Also try to incorporate coconut oil in your diet as it is a medium chain triglyceride which will benefit in your condition.

Please suggest diet chart (for Indian) to maintain sugar level normal for a sugar patient of 57 years old.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology

Please suggest diet chart (for Indian) to maintain sugar level normal for a sugar patient of 57 years old.
Mr., to suggest a dietary plan, all the information like fasting, pp sugar levels hba1c%, extent of daily exercise is needed. Because diet has to be based on blood sugar levels, ideal body weight, and amount of daily exercise and present dietary habits. However, avoid sweets completely, avoid deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries, other bakery items, sweetened aerated drinks (colas), sweet corn syrup containing products, highly processed foods and high fat containing milk products. Consume more of green leafy vegetables, salads and permitted fruits (100 g a day). Use whole grain products, avoid refined flour like maida and foods made out of it. Total caloric intake should e about 1700 calories per day. Thanks for the question.
