Dear doctor, i am diabetic and my ppps is 187.0 mg/dl. Now i am taking metsmal 1000. Please advise.
Blood sugar level (pp 187 mg/100 ml) is fairly ok. However, to bring it down further you have to exercise for more than 1 hour every day, follow the dietary advise meticulously, avoid sweets, direct sugar, fruits like mango, chikkoos, grapes, bananas and aoid smoking and alcohol. If you follow the changed life style meticulously, sugar levels can be brought down further.

Hello dear High cholesterol can cause atherosclerotic heart disease or narrowed coronary arteries in the heart can cause the symptoms of angina, when theheart muscle is not provided with enough oxygen to function. Decreased blood supply to the brain may be due to narrowed small arteries in the brain or because the larger carotidarteries in the neck may become blocked. This can result in a transient ischmic attack or stroke. Peripheral artery disease describes gradual narrowing of the arteries that supply the legs. During exercise , if the legs do not get enough blood supply, they can develop pain , called claudication . Other arteries in the body may also be affected by plaque buildup causing them to narrow, including the mesenteric arteries to the intestine and the renal arteries to the kidney. Change life style .do meditation,yoga, Go walk daily, do any one physically activity daily i.e.play any game., Avoid fast foods,oily foods,junk foods,alcohol,smoking,fatty foods, non-veg.,avoid stress, use flax oil, omega-3 fatty meal or cap., take .green veg., whole grain. garlic,.

Hello, It is not safe for you to give your father alcohol deaddiction medicine. This should be prescribed by the doctor after he has seen your father and examined him. The dose would depend on the amount of alcohol he is consuming, the type of alcohol and since long he is consuming alcohol. Further, some of these medicines may have side effects and it is important for your father/family to be aware of the possible side effects so that you could seek help incase he gets those side effects. Also the doctor can motivate your father to give up alcohol. He may also be given some motivational therapy/behavioural therapy so that he can abstain from alcohol once the course of medicines is completed. So kindly take him to a doctor who deals with deaddictions. Hope this helps you. Wishing you and your family all the best. Thank you.

From last 2 years my sugar level was 130 and now it is 150-160. what medicine should I have? Please help me.
Dear kindly specify whether these are fasting sugar values or post meals. As fasting 150 is very high and if post meals it falls in prediabetic range. Depending on that, tablet metformin would have to be started alongwith exercise and weight reduction.

DIABETIC? 6 ONLY Lifestyle Changes to Live Like You Never Were!

DIABETIC? 6 ONLY Lifestyle Changes to Live Like You Never Were!
6 Essential lifestyle changes every diabetic patient must make

Diabetes is very restrictive - living with the disease however does not imply that you stop enjoying. By bringing about certain changes in your lifestyle, you can still live your life to the fullest. For better management of your disease, these are some of the changes that you can make to improve your blood sugar levels and keep your condition under control.

1. Stay fit with physical activity
The first lifestyle change you can make is to increase your level of physical activity. This can help you in burning extra calories, thereby keeping your blood sugar levels in check. Spending 30 minutes a day exercising is ideal.
If you’re not fond of exercising or don’t have the time for it, even performing simple activities like walking, vacuuming or doing your laundry can help to lower glucose levels while burning calories.

2. Maintain a healthy BMI
Likewise, try to lose those extra kilos that may be weighing you down and increasing your sugar levels. You don’t have to lose all the weight in one go, you can do so little by little. To lose weight gradually and consequently achieve a healthy BMI, you must have more of fruit and vegetables and less of sugary items and processed food along with exercising regularly.

3. Make the right food choices
When it comes to food, you should consume whole grain foods instead of refined carbohydrate alternatives. Make every meal a balanced one with starches, fats and proteins included in the right amount. Furthermore, avoid beverages that come with high sucrose or fructose content, as they don’t offer much in terms of nutrition, and instead just add to your calorie count. Some of the foods you can include in your diet are bitter gourd, cinnamon, green tea, amla, jamun etc.

4. Have a fixed quantity of food
Apart from knowing the right foods to eat and the balance that you need to maintain between the different types, it is also important to know about portion sizes and carbohydrate count. This is because among the different food classes, it’s chiefly carbohydrates that influence your blood glucose levels. So, you need to keep track of the amount of carbohydrates that you’ve consumed in order to arrive at the right insulin dosage.
In addition to keeping count of your carbohydrate consumption, understanding the right portion sizes for the different types of food is also extremely vital for better management of your ailment. Measuring cups and spoons should be employed to arrive at the right quantities of food.

5. Eat your meals at fixed timings
As a diabetic, you should not go longer than 5 hours without eating as it can cause your blood sugar levels to fall dramatically, making you feel weak and faint. Instead you should have your meals at fixed hours, spacing them out at regular intervals. This will ensure your blood sugar levels are always at an optimum point.

6. Control your stress
Stress is a risk factor for Type 2 diabetes. When you’re under stress, your body produces stress hormones (cortisol) that can cause your blood sugar levels (and even blood pressure)to rise. So, preventing or controlling stress becomes necessary to keep your diabetes under control.
Let not your diabetes get in the way of enjoying life!

Hello, if diabetes is diagnosed, is it t1 or t2? because treatment varies in both. T1 will need only insulin injections, t2 can be treated with oral anti-diabetes drugs. Sometimes insulin is used if blood sugar is very high (350 o 400 mg & hba1c%9 plus). Anyway, he needs to be put on appropriate treatment first and blood glucose has to be brought under control. Secondly he should avoid sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries, other bakery items, sweetened aerated drinks (colas), fructose corn syrup containing products, highly processed food products, high fat milk products. Should stay away from smoking and alcohol. Consume more of green leafy vegetables, salads and permitted fruits (100 g a day). Total caloric intake has to be based on ideal body weight, extent of daily exercise and blood glucose levels. If you have any specific doubts please come back. Thanks.

Hello! fenugreek seed is good for diabetic. But one need to know one single food can't manage glucose level. Diabetes can be well managed by a good diet chart. Take small meals in every 3-4 hr. Regular interval. Avoid sweet n sugar also honey n jaggery, fried foods, ready to eat foods, preserved foods n simple carb like maida. Take whole grain cereals in limitation, lot of veggies, 150-200gm fruit (not juice. Don't skip breakfast n take a small portion of milk or product or any whole grain cereal before bed time. Do 30 min of exercise a day. Best to visit a dietician with all reports for personalized diet plan.

If you haven't tried exercise and strict diet control as yet then be assured that both these measures can control your diabetes. Sadly, though these approaches are the best way to control diabetes but are also the toughest to practise. Its a myth that diabetes medicines once started cant be stopped. Infact its the patient ongoing test reports and conditions which define the need for medicines.

Hello respected doctors. I am girl age 21 m suffering from thyroid frm lst 3 yrs. Now my thyroid level is 19. Um facing many problems like hair fall weakness weight loss I am just 44. Give me some valuable treatment for hairfall n for weight gain. Also describe which oil n shampoo can I use. My hair is dandruff free. Thank you.

Hello, I would better recommend you for homoeopathic treatment for thyroid. It because since your age is small, and you having those pills from so young age is not worth. Homoeopathy will help you to reduce it and bring back your normal thyroid profile. And once it becomes normal, no need for any extra oils and shampoo for hair. But till then you use tresemme shampoo and conditioner. Those products are good and reliable too. Take care.:)

Hi, presently you are on triple drug therapy with optimal dose of each medicine. As your sugar after food is 260 it seems that more tighter control of blood glucose levels is needed the exact blood glucose for you may differ according to your age and associated comorbidities. But before increasing your medicines it is necessary to know whether you are taking present medications in correct timings voglibose has to be taken 15 to 20 minutes before food along with medications exercise and diet control will help a lot exercise will reduce overall medicines requirements by decreasing insulin resistance and small but frequent diet will not allow blood glucose to rise up too high!
