In a known case of diabetic we need to control sugar levels with medication, aerobic exercise and following a diabetic diet and if there are no collaterals and if the person is symptomatic than we have to go for bypass surgery.

You have not mentioned your height. For diabetes you need to avoid sugar, jaggery and honey. In fruits you need to restrict banana, chickoo, mango, sitaphal, watermelon, sugarcane, muskmelon, grapes etc. Yo0u need to avoid deep fried foods like farsan and namkeen etc. In vegetables you need to restrict potato, sweet potato, yam, beetroot and carrot etc. Try to consume more of salad, Vegetables and whole grains. Eat small and frequent meals. Do not consume any of your meal heavy. Start taking fenugreek seeds whole or powder in the morning as it will help you keeping your sugar up to normal. Do more of yoga, breathing exercises and weight loss exercises under expert's observation. Your HBA1C should be 5 or below.

Mr Paul, Erectile dysfunction is a common complication of long standing diabetes. One of the most important need is to have excellent blood sugar control (fasting <100 mg and PP<160 mg) and HbA1c%<6.8. Because if you have not been having strict control of blood sugars then micro vascular damage causes ED. So please give all the details like above and come in a private conversation where I will be able to give specific suggestions. In this communication we are supposed to give only gernrral guide lines.

I am 64 years old. I am having diabetes and also spondylitis. Does slow walking really reduces Sugar?

I am 64 years old. I am having diabetes and also spondylitis. Does slow walking really reduces Sugar?
It's not about walking slow or brisk. Brisk walking is necessary to reduce weight and also to keep sugar levels under control. But it is also important to walk according to your age and energy. Walking accordingly can serve the purpose and walking more than your strength can result in complications. So decide the pace of your walk according to your age and energy. Meanwhile bring changes in your diet, follow home remedies to maintain your blood sugar level.

She is 24 year and she has thyroid can she get pregnant but she has an normal thyroid.
Dear Lybrate user, You have mentioned that she has thyroid at the beginning of your statement and that she has normal thyroid at the end. If she has thyroid, then she should be put on appropriate treatment and then investigated whether she can get pregnant. Most of the ladies with thyroid problem conceive.
