If the diabetes is not under control and she has long standing diabetes risk of kidney damage is there.she should monitor her blood sugar three monthly along with Hba1c and consult diabetologist for treatment and advice.You can do renal function test like blood urea.creatinine and urine R/E for albumin to find out whether kidney is affected or not.Along with medicine she should go for regular walk,reduce weight if overweight,control diet by avoiding sweets and excess carbohydrates.she should strictly follow diabetic diet after consulting dietician

Dear lybrate-user, while your concern for using insulin is valid, but it seems you are putting him at risk associated with uncontrolled diabetes. You have to understand that at some point oral meds will be insufficient to controll blood sugar hence insulin is needed which is most effective way. Uncontrolled blood sugar can lead to too many longterm complications like stroke, heart attack, loss of vision, leg ulcer etc. My advice would be to follow your physician advice even if it means starting insulin.

Normal thyroid-stimulating hormone level during pregnancy is lower than the normal nonpregnancy level. The new recommendations for tsh levels during pregnancy are the following: first trimester: less than 2.5 with a range of 0.1-2.5 second trimester: 0.2-3.0 third trimester: 0.3-3.0. As your t4 level is normal, no treatment is needed for you regarding thyroid.

I am sure you are on regular treatment for the same, if so, please take the prescribed medicines without fail.

I am 57 years old teeth is paining I can't eat & talk properly my lips become cross I am diabetic past 12 years.

MDS - Periodontics
Dentist, Bhopal
I am 57 years old teeth is paining I can't eat & talk properly my lips become cross I am diabetic past 12 years.
The disease of teeth and gums in which there is bone loss is called periodontitis. It is the sixth complication of diabetes. First consult your physician and check whether you blood sugar is under normal level or not. If sugar is under normal level then start dental treatment. However you can consult a dentist, its better to bring your recent blood sugar investigation, (fasting, pp, glycated hb etc). If your sugar is not under normal values then you will be prescribed some mouthwash and medicines. If there is no emergency then dental treatment can be delayed until your sugar is at normal level.

If your Utica acid level is this much high then take medicine for Utic acid. Search on internet what food you should not take incase of high Uric acid level. Take a pain killer and apply ice on knees three to four times a day.

Yes. Homeopathic remedies for high uric acid provide an excellent cure. Treatment of elevated uric acid levels with homeopathic remedies not only lowers the levels but also treats body’s defective tendency to hold  excess of uric acid. Homeopathic remedies also treat the body’s metabolic process which handles purines (kind of protein which ends up as uric acid after the body processes it. These are the top homeopathic medicines for elevated uric acid levels that I have found to be very effective colchi, ledum, guaicum, benzoic acid, lithium etc Tips for increased uric acid levels and gout Watch your weight. Try to lose weight slowly. Eat fresh fruit, vegetables, whole wheat products and some pulses (high in purine) every day. Enjoy low-fat milk and dairy products daily. Keep an eye on the purine content of food. Avoid offal, shellfish and crustaceans and tinned fish such as sardines in oil. Eat no more than 100g of meat, sausages, fish and poultry a day. Drink alcohol only occasionally, as it affects the elimination of uric acid. Eat low-fat food. The consumption of high-fat foods encourages weight gain. Drink at least two litres of low-calorie fluids a day. Recommended fluids are water, tea and fruit juice. .consult me by clicking on consult option for homoepathic treatment without side effects.

I am suffering from thyroid for last 5 years kindly advice me what to do next taken medicine eltroxin 75.

DHMS (Diploma in Homeopathic Medicine and Surgery)
Homeopath, Ludhiana
I will advise you to go for homoeopathic treatmnt for Thyroid.Although,the path of homoeopathy for your problem iss quiet difficult but very fruitful because you are already taking ELTROXIN for 5 years. Either go on taking just 1 tab eltroxin early morning life long with increased dose at regular intervals along with it side effects or try to adopt a difficult but fruitful path of homoeopathy for next 2-3 years in which no doubt that you will have to regularily take 2 homoeopathic medicines 3 times a day as compared to ELTROXIN( Only once a day nd finish for the day) but with time we will slowly decrease the dose of ELTROXIN( In next 8-12 months of taking homoeopathic treatment you will get rid of ELTROXIN altogether) .And once Eltroxin is out of your life we will start decreasing the dose of homoeopathic medicines.nd in 2-3 years you will be medicine nd Thyroid free. So ass saidearlier either choose the difficult but fruitful part of homoeopathy for 2-3 yearss or just take i tab ELTROXIN life long along with the sideeffects of such mediciness. Choice is yours

There has been no comparison between the two drugs till now. For all practical purposes, they are the same but sitagliptin offers the convenience of once a day dosing.

Kindly get x-ray both foot ap and lateral view send the scan copy of x-ray to me, as per history it is not related to thyroid, or uric acid. It is most likely---spur of calcanium--advised x-ray both calcanium (heal) review after x-ray.
