Mr. Lybrate-user, your blood glucose levels and hba1c% show there is no diabetes. Bp 140 / 90 is slightly higer than normal. Ideally it should be 120 - 130 / 70 to 80 mm hg. As regards lipids no mention is made about the levels, hence no comment can be made. Ed therefore, is unrelated to any of these problems. If it continues to be there and tends to be more troublesome then better to consult a sexologist. Thanks.

Hi Jobin, I don't want to scare you but diabetic neuropathy should be taken very seriously. Please follow a very strict diet of low sodium and low sugar. So many diabetic diet plans are available. You can follow any. Increase your physical activity. Take Tab Unicorns forte. Once daily for one month. Keep a regular monitoring of your sugar level and if you have any query, do get back.

Looking at the details I suggest you should shift to long acting basal analogue insulin like injection basalog, start with 6 units once a day and increase the dose based on daily blood sugar levels. You will have to do self monitoring of sugar levels. One of the oral medications namely metformin with glimepiride to be continued.

Ayurveda,
You are still young, imbalance due to age factor still you take some kind of multivitamin for weakness and try to use joint pain killer (ayurvedic) to reduce pain and take support of calcium, that's it. Hope for your long life.

Arpitaji, Looking at details given your BMI is only 21.48 kg/ M2, which actually lower than normal (<23 kg/M2). Plus according to your height 160 cms, the ideal body weight should be 60 kgs, where as it is only 55 kgs. So I do not understand why you are saying that the weight is more. Further, if you are on thyroxine treatment then TSH levels should be around 3 milli units/ml. So the dosage of thyroxine is less. It needs to be increased.

Kidney stones treatment depends on the types and size of stone, most kidney stones won't require invasive treatment. You may be able to pass a small stone by: drinking water. Drinking as much as 2 to 3 quarts (1.9 to 2.8 liters) a day may help flush out your urinary system. Unless your doctor tells you otherwise, drink enough fluid mostly water to produce clear or nearly clear urine. Pain relievers. Passing a small stone can cause some discomfort. To relieve mild pain, according to your medical history I may prescribe pain relievers such as ibuprofen, acetaminophen or naproxen sodium. Medical therapy. I am a doctor and renal (kidney) dietitian who will aslo prescribe a customized diet plan and medications to help pass your kidney stone quickly and with less pain. Do reply back for private consultation for a detailed treatment plan including dietary therapy.

Mr. Lybrate-user, fasting 250 mg us very high, signifies there is uncontrolled diabetes. You need to be on appropriate drug treatment either oral or insulin injection, when in control fastin should be 100 mg, pp 150 to 160 mg and hba1c% <7. Plus you have to take restricted diet and do daily one hous exercise.

You can give her Nutrient-rich foods that improve your health may also benefit your thyroid gland, antioxidant-rich fruits and vegetables more plenty of water: Blueberries, tomatoes, bell peppers, and other foods rich in antioxidants can improve overall health and benefit the thyroid gland. Eating foods high in B vitamins, like whole grains, may also help. Selenium: Tiny amounts of selenium are needed for enzymes that make thyroid hormones to work properly. Eating selenium-rich foods, such as sunflower seeds or Brazil nuts, can be beneficial. Tyrosine: This amino acid is used by the thyroid gland to produce T3 and T4. Taking a supplement may help.

I consulted a homoeo doctor and gave me eupatorium perf 1m and silicea6x and I am feeling little better. eupatorium perf only one powder daily for four days and silicea 6x 4 tablets two times daily. Now I am feeling little ok not full and now is the fourth day I am taking eupatorium perf powder.

Please note seriously what I am telling, the diagnosis will itself speak. These are my practical experience which I can say are 100% correct. Before this fever starts about 3--4 days before patient feels headache (mild) and feeling of tiredness which he owes to his busy hectic routine. After 3--4 days there is sudden onset of high temperature accompanied by chills for 15--20 minutes followed by warmth and patient starts throwing all bedsheets and blankets at this time temp is between 102-- 104 degrees which drops after half an hour. Now the temp rises once in 24 hours may be visible or only patient feels this is accompanied by severe headache and body ache this symptom remains for about 1 hour and goes to normal without taking any medicines. This happens daily until proper treatment is given. There is vomitting feeling bitter mouth taste, loss of appetite, and progressive weakness. Above features make the patient normal life miserable. Please note in this urine colour is slight yellow or normal. If the above feature matches with your symptoms than you are having malaria which needs proper treatment at an earliest. As regards homeopathy I have no knowledge. If you wish in allopathy I may tell you. Take tab grandem with tab acilock150 mg twice daily after breakfast and dinner. Take tab cefolac-- o 200 mg + tab flexon twice daily after one hour of above noted medicines. Take tab lumerax 80 mg twice daily with milk. Only for 3 days. Take tab trinerve - lc one at bedtime. If fever sometimes rises you may take tab crocin advance when required. Take all these medicines for 7 days except lumerax (only 3 days) after 7 days let me know response for further advice on lybrate paid consultation service.

Disulfiram tablet is taken for curbing the habit of excessive drinking. This tablet is not a solution to alcohol abuse and as such shouldn't be given for longer periods. Its task is to eliminate the habit of drinking in a conditioned individual by developing averse reactions in his body so that the body starts to avoid alcohol.

Definitely. You can wait to start th allopathic medicines. Just by th diet, exercise n nutrition you can get th desired diabetic control. Instead you can start some ayurvedic medicines containing th very effective herbs like vijaysar, gudmar, karela, neem, jamun, ashavgandha etc.

You will never have complaints with diabetes, until you develop complications, and thats why many diabetes people ignore this disease or don't take it seriously. Diabetes is silent killer, and it kills slowly if not controlled, obviously you should see a doc and start your rx. Do your hba1c.
