Treatment of new case of TB requires a 6 months treatment consisting of 4 drugs for 2 months and two drugs for another 4 months. Treatment can be prolonged if needed. Treatment need a consistency and proper dosing of the drugs.

Any type of cough for more than 2 weeks can be TB. Go for sputum testing free at RNTCP labs before your lungs are damaged and you have spread it to your dear ones.

Honeyji, if hypothyroidism has been diagnosed then only treatment is to continue taking thyroxine tablets as you have been advised. This treatment is for life time. Normally there is no pain involved in this condition. It is better if you meet your doctor and sort it out. But treatment has to be continued without a break. Plus also avoid cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, radish, mustard, peanuts, soya and soya containing products and coffee. Consume good deal of green vegetables, fruits, use whole grain flour for making chapatis and rotis.

What should I do if I am having a sugar ?
If one has high blood sugar then proper treatment must be started with appropriate drugs, either oral or insulin injections. In addition a modified life style should be followed, which includes restricted diet, regular exercises, no smoking and alcohol. Maintaining normal weight is very essential. Practicing yogasanas is a good option.

How to cure the diabetes.

Diploma in Nutrition
Dietitian/Nutritionist,
How to cure the diabetes.
Hello , hope you are doing good, pls follow the doctor prescribed medicine. Which controls the diabetics and will not allow you increase. But along with medication, you need to concentrate on food also. Make sure you food must have high protein, fiber and omega-3 nutrition. For a diabetics, its good to have more protein rather than carbohydrates, which converts into glucose and may have a chance to increase the diabetes. What we suggest is the nutrigemoic protein, who certified, with 9 essential amino acids. This will help you cure your diabetics. But you will definitely have a result, if you can use protein with vitamins and minerals, fiber and omega-3 supplements,

Mr. Lybrate-user, to effectively control diabetes first and foremost is to take appropriate drugs, as prescribed by the doctor with out missinga dose. Exercise regularly for 1 hour a day so as to maintain weight and improve insulin action, reduce resistance to its action. Plus take a restricted diet based on ideal body weight, blood sugar levels, and extent of daily exercise. Thses things together will help in controlling diabetes. All the best.

Papillary carcinoma is very curable. If there are secondaries after total thyroidectomy you need to undergo functional neck dissection followed by radio iodine ablation therapy. You need to be under constant follow. Results are excellent and you can expect normal life span.

Is Diabetes Curable?

LCPS, BAM&S
General Physician, Pune
Is Diabetes Curable?

More young people are detected with diabetes than aged people, nowadays. Stress of work, irregular lifestyle and uncontrolled eating are the reasons of diabetes. Diabetes is incurable. Repeat, diabetes is incurable. But, it can be kept under control. There is no cure for diabetes in any pathy. So stop visiting different pathy clinics, vaids, homeopathy clinics or any magic remedy centres to get cured.


To keep diabetes under control follow these simple tricks. 
1. Eat six times a day, eat little every time. 
2. Walk for 60 minutes every single day, rain or sun. 
3. Avoid or eat least possible rice, sweet, fried food, potatoes. 
4. Take drugs. 
5. Sleep early, sleep well. 
6. Avoid stress, relax, laugh, play, listen to music and enjoy picnics. 
7. Check your hba1c every 3 months and adjust your medication under the guidance of a good doctor.


Allopathy and Ayurveda both have very good medicines that will keep your sugar down. Ayurvedic drugs are free of side effects whereas allopathic drugs have to be constantly monitored for side effects. But in any case both the types of drugs are to be taken lifelong.


As long as sugar levels are under control, diabetics have nothing to fear about. They can lead a normal life, have good longevity, can enjoy all pleasures of life including sex, travel, sports. Restrictions on eatings can be compromised once in a while when sugar levels are under control.


Quarterly check-ups of sugar and general health check up once in two years will ensure that life is going well for you.

Ma'am, I have type 2 diabetes and my father too. Will that affect to my 1 year baby? What precaution do I take for my baby? Is that required to do blood test of my baby?

A baby 1 year old is most likely to have type 1 diabetes. If you are concerned about this, talk to the pediatrician. However, in case you are worried only about whether your baby will develop diabetes, here's the answer: yes, your baby has an inherited risk of type 2 diabetes, as both you & your father are diabetics. Bring up your baby in a healthy manner, feeding him/her with fresh fruit, vegetables, fish, etc. Inculcate healthy eating habits now itself. Encourage him/her to be physically active. Begin any form of sport training at the right age & see to it that he/she doesn't become overweight/obese. Keep them away from alcohol, tobacco & habit forming drugs. Thus, the risk can be reduced.
