My uncal have diabetic. 400 above so he have also pain from back to legs so tell any best Dr. In new delhi.
If he has not started treatment for diabetes, then he should consult a diabetologist urgently as blood sugar value of 400 mg is too high and risky. As regards the back pain he may see an orthopedician.

If i am  diagnosed with pre-diabetes can you eat right and exercise enough for it to go away?
Eating right and exercise along with positive life style changes is fundamental to management of pre-diabetes, but may not be enough. A more comprehesive approach involves specific treatment to improve insulin sensitivity and balancing of metabolic parameters that includes homones and vitamin optimization.

Hello, yes you don't have thyroid disorder called (euthyroid. But please do complete urine examination in good lab, because the pain in penile region may be either due to urine infection or I think you have some phobia or anxiety or feeling of guilty because you may have practiced masturbation in the past. Please be opened, give your history completely and tell your symptoms openly.

In female normally after age of 18 yrs bone ends get close. So height cannot be increased. Take healthy diet and regular exercise and stay healthy. You can take homoeopathic treatment for hypothyroid which will be overall beneficial.

I am 18 years old and I am suffering from diabetes. Is there any possibility to completely cure diabetes in this age.
Hi, There has been no successful treatment found yet to completely cure a patient of Diabetes. But with good diet, exercise and medication it can be controlled optimally. Good diabetic control leads to less complications of heart, nerves, eyes, kidneys etc. In your case, you are suffering with Type 1 diabetes. Your pancreas are not producing insulin. Hence only option is to give insulin from outside. Stopping your insulin injections will lead to devastating effects, so please continue with your insulin injections and be brave to face the challenges of your condition. I wish you good luck Thank you.

Hi, I am a registered dietitian, certified diabetes educator and a doctor (general physician) who will help you in your diabetes problem. Do let me know your hba1c value? also you need to provide me your daily food intake details. There are many lifestyle and dietary guidelines that can be followed: take high fiber prescribed diet which includes soluble fibre like apple, isabgol etc. Get more physical activity by prescription from a registered dietitian maintain a healthy body weight eat a balanced diet which includes whole grains and excludes all refined products like maida as prescribed by a registered dietitian, if you're overweight, diabetes prevention may hinge on weight loss. Every pound you lose can improve your health, and you may be surprised by how much. Participants in one large study who lost a modest amount of weight around 7 percent of initial body weight and exercised regularly reduced the risk of developing diabetes by almost 60 percent. I being a registered dietitian and doctor have been successfully helping patients with their diabetes problem. I will also prescribe medicines that will speed up the time to achieve your weight management goals. Do reply back for private consultation.

How to prevent and decrease acids in stomach? And How to prevent Acidic nature in blood for diabetics?

BHOM, MD - Alternate Medicine, Diploma in Weight Loss, Diploma in Nutrition
Dietitian/Nutritionist, Delhi
How to prevent and decrease acids in stomach? And How to prevent Acidic nature in blood for diabetics?
Our stomach itself produces HCl which helps in digestion and breaking of food. But when too much of acid is produced then it creates problems. Acid increases due to acidic foods, alcohol, dehydration, stress. You can have cold milk, buttermilk, coconut water or some herbs such as ajwain, jeera, tulsi or pudina. You can have antacid tablets, milk of magnesia, eno. Severe acidity may lead to ulcers also. To decrease acid drink a glass of water first thing in the morning. Eat lots of non-citrus fruits such as apple, banana, water melon and fresh vegetables such as beans, legumes. Include yogurt in your diet. Avoid spicy and oily foods.

Mr Jasbir, Having infection of foot or toes is not good, it must be immediately treated. Investigations suggested may have to be done to see the damage. It is better you consult diabetologist locally and a competent surgeon. If neglected can lead to loss of foot or a leg. DO not neglect. Struct sugar control is also a must.

Anyway it may be tried sleep on a hard bed with soft bedding on it. Spring beds, folding beds or thick mattress are harmful use no pillow under the head. Do hot fomantation paracetamol 250mg od & sos x 5days. Caldikind plus 1tab od x10. Do neck, back, knee & general exercises. It may have to be further investigated. Do not ignore it. Let it not become beginning of a bigger problem. Make sure that patient is not allergic to any of the medicines that he/she is going to take. If it does not give relief in 4-5days, inform.
