Diabetes is a problem with your body that causes blood glucose (sugar) levels to rise higher than normal. This is also called hyperglycemia. Type 2 diabetes is the most common form of diabetes. If you have type 2 diabetes your body does not use insulin properly. This is called insulin resistance. At first, your pancreas makes extra insulin to make up for it. But, over time it isn't able to keep up and can't make enough insulin to keep your blood glucose at normal levels. Wat *you do* most important than medicines to maintain the blood sugar levels normal. After all, you are the one who is affected by diabetes and cares for it every day. Only you know how you feel and what you're willing and able to do. You do the exercise. You make and eat the foods on your meal plan. You take the medicine or inject the insulin. You check your blood sugar (glucose) levels and keep track of the results. And of course, you are the first to notice any problems. Home remedies for controlling blood sugar levels: 1. Chew 7 leaves of neem early in the morning on an empty stomach. 2. Powder of fenugreek seeds, neem leaves, bitter gourd and black cumin all in equal quantities should be taken with warm water twice a day 1 hour before food.

My friend has diabetes since 1 year and he is only 19 years old what can I do to cure his blood sugar?
Do let me know your hba1c value? also you need to provide me your daily food intake details. There are many lifestyle and dietary guidelines that can be followed: take high fiber prescribed diet which includes soluble fibre like apple, isabgol etc. Get more physical activity. eat a balanced diet which includes whole grains and excludes all refined products like maida as prescribed. if you're overweight, diabetes prevention may hinge on weight loss. Every pound you lose can improve your health, and you may be surprised by how much. Participants in one large study who lost a modest amount of weight around 7 percent of initial body weight and exercised regularly reduced the risk of developing diabetes by almost 60 percent.

Dear Doctor, I am having diabetic and hypertension for the last 12 years. I am 51 years old. I am presently taking the following medicines: Glycomet GP 0.5 mg 2-0-2 Zita 100 mg 1-0-0 Atorva 10 0 -0-1 Olmax 40 1-0-0 Revelol am 5 /50 - 0-0-1 Presently on a recent checking my BP levels and cholestrol levels seems to be fine and normal. BP 90/130 Total Cholestrol : 118, Trigliceride: 127 ,LDL : 60 ,HDL :45. I presume my BP and cholestrol and BP levels are fine with these numbers. My concern is diabetics. Earlier 3 years back my medication was Pioglit 15 , after its so called ban, doctor changed the medicine to Glycomet GP 0.5 mg which i am using for the last three and half years. My fasting & pp sugar initially even after medication happens to be 130 / 170 levels. However during the last 4 months my sugar started shooting up , partly due to official preoccupations. My HbA1c levels are nearing 8 and morning fasting levels ( vary between 170 to 200) depending on the food what i take at night. Doctor asked me to increase the dosage of medicine and now i am using Glycomet GP 0.5 mg 2-0-2 instead of earlier 1-0-1. Zita i am using only 100 mg. I am not seeing any change in sugar levels. I s the combination right ? should i need to change it ? Please guide. Since i have a touring job for 15 days a month, i resort to outside food and i do walking. Please guide.

Check your fasting and post prandial sugar levels along with hba1c to asses the exact glucose levels. Your bp readings are also high. Consult a good diabetologist for further treatment.

If your son is a type 1 diabetic, regret to say but insulin is the only choice of drug. He can change the sites of the insulin injections constantly and apply stomach if you? re going to inject into the stomach, stay at least two inches away from the bellybutton and/or any scars you may already have when using the abdomen for injections. -thigh for an injection in your thigh, inject at least four inches or about one hand? s width above the knee and at least four inches down from the top of the leg. Do not inject insulin into your inner thigh because of the large number of blood vessels and nerves in this area. - arm the area between the shoulder and elbow on the outside of the arm is usually fine for injections. Injecting into the arm can be difficult, however, because you often cannot pinch enough of an injection site without the aid of your free hand. One option for injecting into the arm with less pain is to apply pressure to the arm from a fixed surface to create an injection site, and then use your free hand to inject. This injection technique usually provides a painless experience. Also visit the below site for further information. http://www.joslin.org/info/how_to_improve_the_insulin_injection_experience.html

Hello, I have gone through the values mentioned, following are higher than normal: uric acid, total cholesterol, ldl and alt. Others are fine. Toal cholesterol is marginally high but ldl is definitely much higher. Liver enzyme alt is also marginally high. Not much of a problem but if you are alcoholic then it is better to reduce or stop that. Higher uric acid can cause joit pains, otherwise nothing much to worry.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Mr Zishan, If treatment for hypothyroidism has been started then after 6 weeks one should check TSH levels to see if levels have come to normal or if there is any need to increase the dose of thyroxine being taken. This treatment has to continue for life time. There is no way to stop it .

Hello, not necessary, provided diabetes in control. I think your doctor suggested for insulin to balance the sugar levels in body. Don't worry she will be good, please manage a good healthy diet. Like more protein from soya, wheat, and other plant sources. And add fiber and omega-3 food supplements.
