Menstrual period is a state of physical stress. The symptom gets pronounced during this phase. Usually before, during and after periods it is been observed that women complaints of mood swings, skin rash, gastric upsets etc. Women are more prone to these complaints if she has a positive family history. But we need a detailed case history for prescribing an appropriate homoeopathic medicine. As far as diabetes is concerned, it is a metabolic disorder which results in increased blood sugar level due to relative or absolute deficiency of insulin. It is more common in those individuals who have a family history of diabetes. We would require certain details to understand the extent and severity of your problem.

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.

Hello, take sygyzium 1x, 2 tabs twice dailt before meals, morning and night. 1. Take karela jamun ras from swadeshi brand. 2. Powdered cinnamon has the ability to lower blood sugar levels by stimulating insulin activity. It contains bioactive components that can help prevent and fight diabetes. 3. Soak two tablespoons of fenugreek seeds in water overnight. Drink the water along with the seeds in the morning on an empty stomach. Follow this remedy without fail for a few months to bring down your glucose level. Another option is to eat two tablespoons of powdered fenugreek seeds daily with milk. Cut down your sugar and salt intake.

General Physician,
You have impaired glucose test. You check your thyroid profile also. Placenta is not too risky as per the report. It is not as easy 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) 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.

Pediatrician,
See the standard ref. For normal values for that lab, and look if they are low or not for your daughter. But once started you have to give lifelong. If still confused, visit paediatric endocrinologist. It is worth, you are dealing with a illness for rest of life.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. If diabetes is not well controlled then erectile dysfunction is quite likely to occur. So most important is to have a very strict blood glucose control with fasting <100 mg, PP 150 to 160 mg & HbA1c%<6.8. Plus you may consider using drugs like PDE Inhibitors just before (1 hour before) the act. This might help in better erection. Thanks.

I have heard that norms of 100-140 figures were designed by vested intrests some time in 1891. They have lost relevence today. Is it so. Most of the persons who consider themselves as diabetic, dont have to face any adverse effect on health. Please tell me the norms in my case. I am 55 yr old married man, with an active life.

May I know what is your source of information? Usually, such statements are made by irrational, unscientific alarmists who do not have anything better to do. Is your source a verified, peer reviewed source in modern allopathic medicine? or is it some other branch of medicine or baba or swami?

Mr. lybrate-user, Warm water, lemon with honey is recommended by some as a treatment for reducing weight. As a doctor I am not able to explain how or why it works. Honey is same as either sugar or jaggery, containing sucrose, plus it is having some vitamins and antioxidants. Can be used as a substitute to sugar. Thanks.

lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Looking at your weight and height it is very obvious that you have grade 2 obesity with a BMI of 37.5 kgs/M2 (normal <23 kgs). This could be due to hypothyroidism plus you might have been over weight earlier also. Now if you want to reduce weight, then strict TSH control is very essential. It should be between 3 to 4 mU/L, then only efforts to reduce weight will be giving results. Plus all the symptoms related to hypothyroidism will be in check. Since you have not mentioned anything about current TSH levels, it is difficult to comment. Thanks.
