Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. The test is to measure level of insulin secretion and resistance to its action. Not really needed in routine treatment. Most important is your fasting, PP glucose levels & HbA1c% are more relevant for initiating the treatment. Plus diet control plus exercise which play equally importnat role in controlling blood glucose levels. Thanks.

Your husband's bmi is 32.87 kg/m2, thiis is classified as grade 1 obesity. Usually surgery is suggested in morbid obesity (grade 3 +) with a bmi over 40 kg/m2. The surgery is fairly safe, but with this level of obesity he can actually work vigorously and reduce weight with exercise and diet control. Even 5 to 10 % reduction in weight will bring a lot of benefits.

Fasting sugar more than 126 mg confirms you have diabetes. Most common causes anemia is nutritional deficiencies -iron, b12, folic acid group of vitamins supplements may help. In some group of patients internal bleeding from piles or chronic ulcers/ varices are cause of anemia some families have known to have genetic variants hemoglobinopathies /traits positive. If you get your anemia profile done then probably you can get clear picture of type of anemia and treatment required for the same. You should also get your post lunch sugar -so that you can control your diabetes with dietary changes initially.

Using allopathic drugs can be the cause of these symptoms, homoeopathic treatment can give relief from these symptoms and also if you use homoeopathic treatment for long, you may be cured and need no allopathic medicines further.

Hi, You haven't mentioned your body weight and your profession. You are suffering from impaired glucose tolerance. So if you keep your body weight in normal range and eat diet rich in fiber, do regular exercises you may keep your sugar levels in normal range. Its a progressive disease one day things will reach to stage that you will have to take medicine. In case if you are a case of diabetes type one that means you will need insulin to control your sugar. Those patient who are type one diabetes they may loose weight due to deficiency of insulin. Actually your doctor should measure your insulin levels.

Diabetes And Its Symptoms!

Diabetes And Its Symptoms!

At present 3 out of the 5 people are suffering from diabetes and it is the 7th leading cause of death worldwide. Moreover, it is no more restricted just to adults and affects children as well. Diabetes is a metabolic disease resulting in increase in the level of glucose in the body. Glucose is a source of energy for the cells making up the muscles and other tissues in the body. But if the level of glucose goes up, it shows the sign of danger. Diabetes is of 2 types: 

  1. Type 1: body fails to produce insulin.
  2. Type 2: Body fails to produce enough insulin which is required by the body.

There are no definite signs of diabetes. It simply varies from person to person. In many of the cases it goes unnoticed. Such signs are as follows:

  1. Sudden weight loss: You might experience a sudden weight loss of 5 to10 kgs within a month. This happens when sugar metabolism ceases very quickly.  Insufficient insulin prevents the body from taking in glucose in the body cells from the blood to use as energy. In such a scenario the body starts burning fat and muscle for energy. This results in weight loss.
  2. Intense hunger: The cells in your body might not get enough energy either due to absence or improper functioning of insulin in your blood. This makes you hungry quite often.
  3. Excessive urination and thirst: Due to diabetes, the glucose level in the body goes up. The kidneys are overloaded with the burden of working overtime for filtering and absorbing the excess glucose in your body. The excess sugar, which the kidney cannot store is excreted out of your body. This makes you urinate frequently.  Due to frequent urination the body gets dehydrated which makes you feel thirsty more often.
  4. Blurred vision: Due to the high level of glucose in your body tissues gets pulled away from the lens of the eyes. This results in vision issues. If not treated on time, it may even lead to blindness.
  5. Increased fatigue: The cells in your body might not get enough energy either due to absence or improper functioning of insulin in your blood. This makes you restless more often and you may even feel too weak to do your regular activities.

If you notice any of these signs, get the level of sugar in your checked and take the required remedies. It is good to get it treated as early as possible rather than facing immense trouble in future. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a General Physician.

Root canal axis opening can be done to get instantaneous relief from pain, if the tooth is firm with enough tooth structure. High blood sugar levels has got nothing to do with root canal treatment procedures. However it matters for extraction of root stumps. Kindly consult a dentist in person for further suggestion. We need more investigations to decide upon treatment. You may consult me in person. Dental tips: - visit a dentist every six months. Gargle your mouth thoroughly after every meal. Scrub gently to clean your tongue with a tongue cleaner. Floss all your teeth inter dentally & brush twice daily, morning & night, up & down short vertical strokes, with ultra-soft bristles, indicator brush.

I am 64 yrs old. I taking metformin 500 twice daily since the last nearly two years. Is there any side effects for using it continuously. My sugar level is 113 before and 180 after. Please advise.

Let us keep aside the side effects of metformin for time being. While taking this medicine the sugar level r not still under control and this can prove fatal for your body. So consult your physician and ask him to give some aggressive medicine o that your sugar level fasting is below 110 and pp is below 140, otherwise it can cause some serious damage.

Hi I am 30 years of age. Recently diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. Started insulin dose daily. Is there any way to get over it completely. I don't want to use insulin for whole life.

Considering your age of 30 years type one diabetes is unlikely. However if you go through complete evaluation than the diagnosis can be confirmed. If you do not have type one diabetes than other medicines can be tried.

Homoeopathic medicine can cure erectile dysfunction within short duration of time. No side effects in homoeopathic medicines at all. Only two things you should avoid while taking homoeopathic medicines for better results 1. Coffee 2. Soft drinks. Remaining all food you can take. 100% results. There are medicines like argentum nit, kali phos, agnus, nux vom can completely cure erectile dysfunction permanently. For further details you can consult me. Thank you.

Thank you for the query. As per the symptoms you have provided, your wife is probably suffering from a condition called diabetic neuropathy. It is a condition which causes nerve damage in diabetics. High blood sugar can injure nerve fibers throughout the body, but diabetic neuropathy commonly damages nerves in the legs and feet. This leads to tingling/numbness, burning sensation and pain in the feet and hands (gloves and stockings distribution). A nerve conduction velocity test confirms the diagnosis. Usually vitamin b12 supplements help. A number of other medications like gabapentin, duloxetine, pregabali are available for this condition, but they should not be given without consulting your physician, as they may cause sleepiness. Glycomet has metformin, which itself can lead to vitamin b12 deficiency. It is important that your wife takes adequate foot care, and note for any corns/callous or minor injuries, which need to be dealt with early in diabetics. Regards.

Cell Phone in Pocket - Did You Know It Can Reduce Male Fertility?

MD-Ayurveda, Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)
Sexologist, Haldwani
Cell Phone in Pocket - Did You Know It Can Reduce Male Fertility?

Can you imagine your life without your cell phone? Difficult isn’t it, but did you know that these devices could be harming your sexual health? Most people keep their cell phones in their jeans or trouser pockets or clipped to a belt on their waist. While this does make the phone easily accessible, it also affects male fertility.

There are two main aspects to male fertility; the motility and viability of sperm cells. Motility refers to the sperm cell’s ability to swim through body fluids and fertilise the egg. Viability refers to the number of living vs non-living sperm cells and sperm cell abnormalities.

Cell phones are constantly working even when we’re not talking into them. They constantly send out and receive electromagnetic frequency radiation to keep your social media accounts updated. Given the close proximity of the cell phone and your body, this energy may be absorbed by your genitals. As a result, the sperm cells may change shape and lose their ability to attach themselves to an egg. The structural abnormality may impede the sperm’s ability to swim and thus reduce motility. Semen exposed to this type of radiation also has a high level of free radicals.

In order to produce sperm, the testicles maintain a specific temperature that is ideal for sperm health. Smartphones typically also have a higher temperature than that of the room you are in. Thus, when you keep your cell phone in your pant pockets, they increase your skin temperature in the groin by approximately 2 degrees as well as the temperature within your testicles. This slows down the production of sperm cells and can even kill them thus, reducing sperm cell viability.

In the ideal world, a cell phone should only be carried in a bag, but almost all men may cringe at the thought of carrying a bag. Hence, take your phone out of your pocket whenever possible, for example while driving, at a restaurant etc. The use of Ayurvedic aphrodisiacs can also lower the harmful effects of cell phones. The dried roots of asparagus or safed musli can help increase sperm count and rejuvenate a man’s libido. Ashwagandha, shilajit and kawach are also very effective Ayurvedic herbs to treat male infertility. Increasing your intake of food rich in vitamin C and E can also help deal with the stress in sperm caused by phone radiation. The use of these herbs has negligible side effects and hence can be safely used by men of all ages. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Sexologist.
