Bhavanaji, T2 DM is a familial disease, it does run in family. If both parents have diabetes then 75 % of children are likely to get it. If one of the parents have it, then 25 % may get it. Fortunately it is a preventable disease. That is if a modified life style is followed like regular exercise for more than 1 hour a day, maintaining normal body weight, take a balanced diet giving matching calories based on ideal body weight and avoid too much of sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods and pastries. Plus should consume a good deal of green leafy vegetables, salads and fruits. Refrain from alcohol and smoking. If this meticulously adhered to, then one can remain free from diabetes.

Pls advise.
Do not worry. That value is also normal. If you have any specific problems like joint pains then can repeat the test. Or else values <6.8 are not a problem.

I want to know about the uric acid increase problems.

MD - Internal Medicine, MBBS
Endocrinologist,
Firstly, we have to understand where uric acid comes from. Animal cells (including human cells) have structures called DNA, which reside with the nucleus of the cell. This DNA is broken down into its constituents, called amino acids, when a cell dies through the action of the immune system. Some of these amino acids are called purines, which in turn are converted into other chemicals. Our body recycles some of these chemicals with those left over proceeding to become uric acid, which is in some ways a waste product that is then excreted by our kidneys into the urine. It is a very complicated process but with this concept in mind you may understand why certain diseases are associated with high levels of uric acid. For example, if a person has a high burden of dying cells, such as occurs in certain cancers or in those undergoing chemotherapy for the treatment of cancer, then more DNA is broken down to purines, resulting in excess uric acid production. Fig 2. Xray of a finger joint with severe destructive gout. Fig 2. Xray of a finger joint with severe destructive gout. Conversely, when the uric acid cannot be efficiently excreted, such as is the case with many kidney diseases or due to many medications that interfere with this process of excretion. This is particularly a concern with diuretics, which remove water from our body at the expense of other products such as uric acid. Rarely, a person is born with a defective step in uric acid metabolism, whereby gout develops at a young age, sometimes associated with a very strong family history of early and aggressive gout. When the uric acid level is high in the circulation it is termed Hyperuricaemia. This situation is also strongly associated with obesity. It is believed that fatty tissue enhances the production of uric acid. Hyperuricaemia is part of the ‘metabolic syndrome’, which is associated with an increased risk of heart attacks and strokes. We also obtain purine amino acids from our diet. It is estimated that 10-15% of our purine load is dietary in origin. Foods that are high in purine include offal, seafood (in particular crustaceans), red meat, and alcohol.

Treating Infertility with Homeopathy

B.H.M.S
Sexologist, Hyderabad
Treating Infertility with Homeopathy

Infertility is a condition, which is diagnosed as the inability of the woman to conceive a child even after a prolonged duration of unprotected intercourse (for about 6 months to 1 year). This condition can affect both the genders. Infertility might cause immense societal embarrassment for the couple and can mar the joys of a relationship. The causes of infertility in male and female are as follows:

  1. In males, infertility might stem from injury to the testicles, erectile problems, premature ejaculation, infections due to sexually transmitted diseases, structural deformation of the testicles, little or irregular sperm count and blockage of the ejaculatory duct.
  2. In females, infertility might develop due to abnormal periods, polycystic ovarian syndrome, diseases which cause inflammation of the pelvis such as gonorrhoea and chlamydia, a disorder in the thyroid glands, blockage of the fallopian tubes and structural deformation of the uterus.
  3. The common reasons of infertility in both men and women can be attributed to increased body weight, old age, excessive consumption of alcohol, diabetes, mental anxiety, side effect of radiation therapy and prescribed medications.

As it is a holistic mode of treatment, Homeopathy can be used to treat infertility as the preparations do not contain any toxin and has zero side effects.
1. In men, if the reason behind infertility is irregular sperm count, then a prescribed dosage of X-Ray might help.
2. If infertility is caused due to erectile problems along with symptoms of severe mental stress, involuntary discharge of semen and lack of sexual desire, a prescribed dosage of Caladium or Selenium might be helpful.
3. If the discharge from the vagina appears to be acidic which gradually destroys the sperms, Borax might be prescribed.
4. If the woman suffers from episodes of irregular, but enduring menstrual periods, a prescribed dosage of Calcarea Carb might be helpful. If the duration of the periods is short, Pulsatilla might also be prescribed.
5. In women, if the symptoms include a lack of sexual desire along with excessive pain in the vagina during sexual intercourse, Sepia might be recommended.

Is banana, grapes are good for diabetes.
No avoid them in case of uncontrolled diabetes. These fruits are high in sugar. Diabetes is a vast subject and normally one diabetic differs from another. The best thing about diabetes is unlike other ailments this if taken care off can be controlled effectively. Diabetes is a problem which requires lot of self-control. Certain foods and lifestyle changes can show long term results on your health. Depending on the type of diabetes you have, your food habits, age and body type your treatment, insulin counts and monitoring should be scheduled. I can help you with carbohydrate counting to correct insulin techniques and monitoring your sugar levels whatever the need be. Diabetics require personalized care when it's about the diet-plans and activities that are needed to be done. A professional advice in this regard is a must in order to manage diabetes effectively. I hold expertise with diabetics as I am a certified diabetes educator apart from being a consultant dietitian. You can consult me privately online for any advice related to diabetes.

I have a diabetes. Pls suggest me what to eat or not give me advice to prevent from it.
Mr. Lybrate-user, prevention of diabetes is possible when diabetes has not developed. Once it has been diagnosed, then it can only be controlled with appropriate treatment. So if you already have diabetes then take care and control sugar levels as normal as possible. To achieve good control fasting should be closer to 100 mg, pp 150 to 160 mg and hba1c%<6.8. Diet has to be every individual specific, depending upon blood sugar level, hba1c%, extent of daily exercise and weight of the patient. Your diet should provide exact calories based on the details mentioned above. In the mean time, avoid sweets completely, also direct sugar and gur, no deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries, sweetened aerated drinks, high fat milk products, sweet corn syrup containing products and highly processed food products. Consume more of green leafy vegetables, salads, permitted fruits (100 g a day). Use whole grain flour, for chapati and rot. Do not use refined flour like maida. Avoid alcohol and smoking, adapting this modified lifestyle will help in controlling blood sugar better.

Hello, Diabetes means high blood sugar. So if you mother is having low blood sugar, that means she has been started on some oral tablets or insulin that could be reducing the blood sugar to quite low levels. Also vomitings and lack of appetite can be due to medication that has been started. Please consult your diabetologist so that he can alter the medication dose. Hope this has helped you Thank you.

Will a person with Type 2 diabetes under control end up with the need for insulin?
Yes, it is possible. If the diabetes cannot be controlled with medicines, then insulin is necessary. But if it under control, then it is okay. Regular exercises especially walking helps to keep diabetes under control.

I am suffering from sugar so should I have to do and what type of medicine should I take please help me.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
I am suffering from sugar so should I have to do and what type of medicine should I take please help me.
Diabetes, often referred to by doctors as diabetes mellitus, describes a group of metabolic diseases in which the person has high blood glucose (blood sugar), either because insulin production is inadequate, or because the body's cells do not respond properly to insulin, or both. It is a difficult task to control blood sugar in the desired normal range. Whatever we eat is metabolised to sugar in the body to provide energy for our daily activities. For the absolute control, one has to monitor his / her blood sugar at regular intervals (Self-Monitoring of Blood glucose – SMBG). Though difficult, this can be done by a glucometer and keep a record. Get an idea of Fasting sugar (FBS) and 2 hours after food (PPBS), & HbA1C (inform me) and check before dinner and after every major food. The basic idea is to reduce the food intake to 1/3 of what you take now. The dictum of sugar control is diet, exercise, diet + medicine and at later stage medicine+ Insulin will be needed. There are different diet plans of varying calories for each person depending on his activity & life style. For diabetes, hypertension (high BP) and many long-term illness control there is the need for regular advice and follow up. Just one time consultation or advice is not enough to guide a diabetic in scientifically & medically correct manner. For giving you regular follow up you ask me with all details like your daily eating pattern and medicines you take. I assure you a proper guidance. If you keep in touch personally.

Treatment of rectal cancer is surgery. Well, patient has to be fit for it. If there are associated medical problems they need to be corrected/controlled before going ahead with surgery. So it is better for your mother to take treated at a multi-speciality / medical college hospital for a well coordinated management. Thanks.
