Hi, I am suffering from diabetic. What can I do to for normal sugar range? last 18 years my sugar level is between 200 to 300.

Hello 200 to 300 mg sugar is high, this can cause a lot if diabetes related completions such as affecting eyes, kidneys, nerves etc. So it is essential to have tighter control. You may havevto shift to insulin injection which can bring sugar levels closer to target.

RBS 135 mg is high. During pregnancy you should maintain blood glucose between 90 to 120 mg always. So it is necessary to get the glucose level down to that. If not on treatment, please initiate. Only Insulin has to be taken. Also get OGTT done to confirm whether there's diabetes. Thanks.

Chapattis can help in controlling diabetes or not? I show most old man eat Chapattis for diabetes issue.

Chapattis can help in controlling diabetes or not? I show most old man eat Chapattis for diabetes issue.
Mr. Lybrate-user, chapatis are like roti and rice, as all these foods contain starch. Starch is converted to glucose in the intestine. Hence, eating more chapatis is definitely not beneficial or advisable. Wheat flour from which chapatis are made is containing mainly starch. 100 g of whole wheat flour gives 407 calories, about 87 g of carbohydrate, 16 g of proteins and 2 g of fats. Hence, taking more wheat flour as chapatis is definitely ideal for controlling diabetes. It can be a part of the total food. As far as I know, hardly anyone will depend on chapati only for sugar control.

I have type 2 Diabetes. Recently diagnosed for glomurenia (membranous). What should be the future procedure?

I have type 2 Diabetes. Recently diagnosed for glomurenia (membranous).
What should be the future procedure?
in t2 dm kidney does get affected. But a strict blood sugar control will help in maintaining kidneys in good functioning condition for a very long time, that is for whole of life time. The word mentioned by you is (glomurenia membranous) is rather unclear. Diabetes does affect glomerulous, particularly the filtering membrane in it. So it is essential to maintain blood glucose levels as normal as possible. Objective is to achieve fasting glucose close to 100 mg, pp 150 to 160 mg and hba1c%<6.8 at your age. That will help you to keep kidneys in good condition. If glucose levels go high, then damage to kidney is hastened. If you have any doubts please do come back. Thanks for the query.

The best treatment of Gout consists of restoring the balance of Vata (Air element) and detoxifying the blood. High protein diet should be avoided in cases of increased uric acid. Mix one teaspoon of apple cider vinegar in a glass of water and drink it two to three times daily. If you find this remedy helpful, you can increase the dosage of apple cider vinegar to up to two tablespoons. Take maha rasnadi kwath 2-2 tsf twice a day. Take maha yograj guggul 1-1 twice a day. Kaishor guggul and chandraprabha vati 1-1 twice a day. Avoid junk food. Fermented food. Spicy food. Tea.coffee. Do pranayama early morning. Avoid alcohol consumption.

Identify the dipping portion on the back of your knee folding. Press this dip with both middle fingers and hold your knee with your thumbs for support. Please swing 20 times morning and evenings. This will relieve your problem. Press the point on the web between 2nd and 3rd finger from toe in the foot 20 times by pressing and releasing with a blunt edge of a pen. Further rotate your foot clockwise and anticlockwise 10 times. Massage your leg with both hands. Pl consult after a week.

I want to know if I can control my sugar level with exercise I have fracture in my right leg 6 month back can not walk smoothly still. What type of exercise I can do.

MD - Internal Medicine

Hi, thanks for posting your query. Well yes you can control your sugars with exercise. But know one thing you are on quiet a high dose medication for diabetes so don't except that only with exercise you can control blood sugars and avoid taking medication. With exercise you requirement for medication comes down and still you will require some medication. Best exercise are brisk walking and jogging but since you have limitations doing it, you can try cycling or stepper exercise. Also to some extent upper body exercise like weight lifting etc.

As a nutritiion expert, I suggest some good nutritional food and supplements. Which helps to control and cure the diabetes. 1. Do regularly walk during morning hours. 2. Try to avoid white rice and heavy carbohydrates. 3. Mole powder food, wheat will keep you active without adding any carbohydrates. 4. Drink more water in a day. 2 to 3 liters. 5. Add more fruits into your diet, fruits will give vitamins and minerals which keeps the body active for long hours. 6. Add protein sources like wheat, soya, egg whites. 7. Add fish into her diet. Twice a week.

I have hyperactive thyroid disease and thyroiditis. Is this diseases dangerous for life.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Hyperthyroidism and thyroiditis are comparatively easily manageable conditions, provided proper medications are taken as advised. If there is very high level of T4 & T3 and low TSH then one has to take anti-thyroid drugs, which will help in controlling hyperactivity, sometimes for a long time or in some cases for a shorter duration. Based on the results further treatments can be taken. Thanks.
