No details about the pain. Like exact location type aggravating factors or other complaints. There are wide variety of reasons. He should see a physician for proper clinical examination, investigations if necessary, diagnosis and further treatment. Ordinary Paracetamol 500 mg Tablets gives relief if pains is musculo skeletal.

Today I have test my Blood in fasting and PP Result found 126 in Fasting and PP is 201, shall I continue just by avoid sugar content in food routine use some leaf of Kari leaf, Neem leaf and tulsi leaf, is it right way?

Mrabhay kumar blood suagr level of fasting 126 mg and pp above 200 mg is normally considered as frank diabetes. But it is just at the limit. It would be better if you get hba1c% and if the values exceed 6.5%, then it is frank diabetes. Still if you follow a very strict life style modification like 1) exercise for more than 1 h per day (at least brisk walking for more than 1 h), 2) avoid sugar and sweets and fruits like mango, banana, chikkoos and grapes, 3) consume more whole grain flour breads, complex carbohydrates, 4) consume more green salad and green leafy vegetables, 5) try and maintain your weight near normal (ideal body weight = height in cms - 100 x 0.9 = kgs), 6) avoid deep fried fats, 6) refrain from smoking and alcohol. Your caloric intake should be properly calculated based on weight and level of physical activity. If all these guidelines are meticulously followed then there is a possibility for you to check the condition and remain euglycemic.

I am 16 weeks pregnant and on insulin from the very first day of my pregnancy. I am taking 10 unit in morning and 9 in evening of Human Mixtard 30. My glucose level is 102 in fasting and 115 in PP. Do I need to increase my dose of insulin or it is normal in pregnancy? Also let me know the targeted glucose level during my pregnancy. Before pregnancy I was taking isomate 500 twice after food. After delivery can I come back again in medication or I need to continue insulin rest of my life? please help.

Fasting should be <95 and pp is ok (<120). Please change drug only after consulting doctor. After pregnancy, there is good chance that you will not insulin. Even nowadays, we often continue isomet during pregnancy.

Homeopath,
Dear lybrate user, one of the major nutritional substance required for human body is carbohydrate. We take carbohydrate in the form of rice, wheat, sugar etc. The complex molecules of carbohydrate are broken down into simple glucose molecules during digestion & released in the blood stream to be absorbed by the muscle cells. Muscle cells utilise the glucose molecules to release energy by breaking down those glucose molecules. Insulin hormone plays a vital role in the absorption of the glucose molecules by the muscle cells. In abnormal conditions, either due to less production of insulin or due to resistance to insulin, the process of absorption of glucose by the muscles comes to a stand still. The glucose molecules remains in the bloodstream which results in the increase in the blood sugar level. The failure of utilisation of the glucose molecules by the muscle cells results in production of less energy than normal condition. This is externally manifested as the fatigue & tiredness of the patient. This excess amount of blood sugar compels the kidney to function more than normal level in order to excrete the blood sugar molecules through urine. As a result the patient suffers from frequent urination. This abnormal condition is clinically known as diabetes mellitus. Once a patient is diagnosed with diabetes he has to take regular medicine to keep his blood sugar level within normal limits. However, the patient does not need to take medicine unless his/her post. Prandial blood sugar level reaches 200. If post. Prandial blood sugar level reaches 200 then patient can take homoeopathic mother tincture gymnema sylvestra q, 30 drops, thrice daily, after meals, in a cup of water. Along with intake of medicines the patient need to walk at least 1 hour daily without any interval. In order to decrease the intake of carbohydrate in diet the patient should avoid rice, sweet dishes, fruits, cold drinks, fast foods, alcoholic beverages, potato etc.

I am 65 years old. I am diabetic person. Now taking one tab per day i. E q. Met 250 mg. I am doing exercise and walking. My sugar level fasting 110 and after meals 135 (without taking tab) what type of food and habits I should follow?

Hello , please follow the doctor prescribed medicine. Which controls the diabetics and will not allow you increase. 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. But you will definitely have a result, if you can use protein with vitamins and minerals, fiber and omega-3 supplements.

Today I known my sugar in blood RBS: 102 mg/dl. This is normal or not? How to reduce the sugar in body. Please give any solution.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Mr. lybrate-user, RBS 102 mg is normal blood glucose level. If a persoe does not suffer with diabetes, then in his body Insulin takes care of glucose metabolism effectively. Only thing is one should take a properly balanced diet avoiding too much of sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries, other bakey items and sweetened aerated drinks. Also refrain from alcohol and smoking. Exercise regularly so as to maintain normal weight. Thanks.

I gather that you want help for managing obesity. First thing you need to ensure is that your blood sugar remains under check. Eat lots of fibres, avoid fatty food. Exercise daily. If you are morbidly obese, ypu may go for bariatric surgery to reduce weight.

I have hypothyroidism since 8 to 10 years. There was no proper remedy was given for that, and the leptin rate was also high. The body parts do not work, and no sensation, dysentery, and some other.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Mr. Lybrate-user, with 116 kg weight you have a grade 3 obesity, that is the major problem. It is possible that uncontrolled hypothyroidism may have been the reason for triggering and increasing obesity. But now your primary objective is tackle obesity. For that hypothyroidims has to be strictly controlled with tsh levels should be maintained between 3 to 4 milli units / l. Then there has to be strict dietary control to be observed and regular exercise regimen. You should aim at cutting about 8 to 10 % of present weight. It is possible, only if you are prepared mentally. Thanks.

I am 60 years old having diabetes using Glycomet GP2, Pioz 15 one daily. Now Sugar under control Fasting 120, For BP 160/80 I was using Benitec 40 Half Tablet. Under control 130/80 and I stopped genetic 40 and now again after 6 months my BP is 160/80. I am getting high constipation, Gas problem and some times breathlessness. What should I do?

Diploma in Nutrition
Dietitian/Nutritionist, Secunderabad
Hello sir, hope you are doing good. Pls don't stop bp medication, unless doctor ask you to stop. Diabetes, bp require a long term medication. But this might also lead to your constipation problem. If you have constipation more than occasionally or have severe pain or bleeding, it's important to check-in with your doctor as these symptoms can be a sign of a more serious digestive disorder. However, in most cases constipation is just a sign that your diet needs more fiber. The average adult needs between 25 and 30 grams of fiber a day to ward off constipation, far less than most of us typically eat. To avoid bloating and cramping, you'll want to gradually add fiber to your diet. Badam, orange, apple has more fiber pls eat as raw. Dont make a juice of it. Let me suggest you some best fiber supplement from who certified. This fiber is easily digestible and give a best result you need to take after meals in the afternoon and evening. Just leave a message to me on my private questions. Have a nice day.

MY Wife aged 62 years is suffering from allergic sneezing and running nose very often. Anti histamines only gives temporary relief. How to stop this? She is taking medicine for sugar. Pl. Advise.

Possibly there is allergy. Antihistamines work only temporarily. She may have to find cause like dust, fumes, smoke, pollen, Poly fibres . etc. and avoid. Otherwise there may be a structural defect inside nose for which she should see ENT specialist. Naturopathy like instilling saline water and breathing exercises in Yoga like Pranaayam, Kapalbahti, Anulom Viloma Deep breathing may help

My aunt has diabetes from past four years and now sugar is not in control but she is maintaining perfect care about his health even though sugar levels are increasing.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Mr Srinivasa Rao, The very fact that sugar (blood glucose) level is going out of control, is a sign of ill health. Because persistent hyperglycemia affects every single vital organ in the body like eyes (retina), small & large blood vessels, kidney, heart, lower limbs, peripheral nerves and lipid metabolism etc. leading to serious long term complications. So my suggestion is please see that blood glucose level is brought under a strict control. There is no other option. Otherwise, suddenly some complication may come up without warning. Thanks.
