My uncle is 50 years old. He is suffering from knee pain often. And he is having diabetes I think so. What to do?
Core strengthening exercise- straight leg raised with toes turned outward, repeat 10 times, twice a day. Hams stretching- lie straight, take the leg up, pull the feet towards yourself, with a elastic tube or normal belt. Repeat 10 times, twice a day. Quadriceps exercises- lie straight, make a towel role and put it under the knee, press the keen against the role, hold it for 20 secs. Repeat 20 times twice a day. This will help relieve some pain.

Hello- The main reason behind your erectile dysfunction is Diabetes. Diabetes leads to slow blood supply and improper utilization of peripheral blood glucose to the muscles. It leads to undernourishment of the organ hence causes erection loss, lack of libido and ejaculation problem too. Viagra does not going to solve your problem as it is a symptomatic drug for sex and moreover you are a diabetic person. You have to start herbal aphrodisiacs for diabetics along with the diet modification and daily exercise to get back your sexuality. Medicinal effect and your efforts can make you sexually fit.

Hello, There is slight increase in TSH levels which indicate borderline Hypothyroidism. Due to hypothyroidism, the hairloss occurs as well as greying of hair also takes place. So, keep taking medication as per advised by your physician. Medication: For premature greying and hairloss, you can take homoeopathic medicines - Weisbaden 200/ twice daily and Kali Phos. 6x/ once at night only. Take them for 4 weeks, then get back to me.

Diabetes is a disease which remains for life time. There is no cure, only control is possible by taking regualr treatment either with oral anti diabetic drugs or with insulin injections. Apart from taking drugs one has to exercise for at least 1 h a day and eat restricted diet avoiding sweets and deep fried foods. Plus consume good amount of green salads.

I am diabetic patient and insulin dependent. Can I use tablets instead of injection?

I am diabetic patient and insulin dependent. Can I use tablets instead of injection?
Hello, please continue with insulin as doctor prescribed. If there is a possibility, doctor should have suggested the medicine instead. Its good to control your diabetes. But along with medication, you need to concentrate on food also. Make sure you food must have high protein, fiber and omega-3 nutrition. For a diabetics, its good to have more protein rather than carbohydrates, which converts into glucose and may have a chance to increase the diabetes. What we suggest is the nutrigemoic protein, who certified, with 9 essential amino acids. This will help you cure your diabetics in a year time. But you will definitely have a result, if you can use protein with vitamins and minerals, fiber and omega-3 supplements.

Hello iam 22 year old girl and I have a thyroid and I didn't concentrate my studies and I become very lazy. And I tried a home remedy dhaniya ka pani but it didn't work please help me.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

You could feel tiredness and unusual fatigue die to thyroid problems. You need to go for treatment for the thyroid problem anyway. Dhaniya water will not affect this problem. In the meantime do some of these recommendations very faithfully: Daily exercise of at least half an hour is a must. Even if you go to a gym, ask for aerobic and/or callisthenic exercises with whatever else you are doing. A healthy body harbors a healthy mind. With regard to memory, it is very important that your brain and body is ideally rested to be able to recall whatever is required, rather comfortably. Puzzles pose problems to the brain that help it to use new pathways and neurons, which give the brain considerable exercise. It taxes the left brain to use logic to solve the myriad possibilities which other activities do not stimulate. Crosswords are excellent for vocabulary learning and use. Jigsaws and Rubik cube stimulate different permutations to finally settle on the most likely one. Picture completion and anagrams help approach problem solving from several angles. Do Sudoku, and memory co-relation activities and skills. Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber (whole grains, fruits and vegetables), nuts, avocado, eat dark chocolate, consume less of fat and use olive oil instead, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. You need to check out if you are stronger visual or auditory. The visual is a better mode than the auditory. However, if you combine the two modes, you will get the best concentration. Have a special place of learning, which should be well lit, with soft painted walls, well-ventilated, with no distractions. When you get bored, study by writing. If you repeat learning at least five to seven times, you will apparently remember for a longer time. Sit comfortably but do not slouch. The reading material should be of a fairly large print. Study at small intervals of about 40 minutes and then take a break or change the subject. Short-term memory is a faculty of the left brain, and long-term memory is a feature of the right brain. When people are stressed, they tend to favor the right brain and abandon the left brain, where short-term memory resides. So, it is really very simple: deal with the stress and activate left brain functions. Here are a few suggestions to activate left brain function: shut your left nostril and breathe, move your eyes from right to left and vice versa for at least half a minute at a time, and do callisthenic exercises with some form of counting, regularly. There is a new exercise called Super Brain Yoga, which is done by holding the right earlobe with your left thumb and index finger, and the left earlobe with your right hand’s thumb and index finger. In this position you must squat down and rise up and do this for five minutes every day. There are some memory enhancing techniques and study methods that your teacher will be able to guide you with. If your home life is full of distractions and stress, it is likely to affect your memory, adversely. In that case, I suggest that the family goes for counseling too. The following foods do help too: Blueberries, walnuts, turmeric, Spinach, tomatoes, broccoli, acorn squash, green tea, oily fish, boiled egg, turkey, apples, oatmeal, leafy greens, lentils, pumpkin seeds, avocado, cinnamon, thyme, sunflower seeds, and red wine. Avoid sugar and junk food.

It is important to keep HbA1c <7%. This should be tested 3 monthly. If it is less than &% you can try reducing your medicines after consulting the doctor. Yes it is possible for some people to stop medicines if their blood glucose control is good. Fasting glucose should preferably be <110 mg/dl and 2h post meal glucose should be preferably <160 mg/dl.
