Hello, you can control diabetes by having a medication prescribed by doctor. Its a degenerative disease inside from your body. But to completely get rid of diabetes, you should have a better control on your food habits. Along with your medication, if you take a proper diet of proteins, amino acids, vitamins and minerals these will work on your body hormonal balancing system once your harmon are working in a balancing way, slowing your degenerative diseases will be repaired and medication dosage will come down. Eventually you can continue diet without medication. Preparing your diet and nutrition chart doesn't much time, maximum half day. Let me know if I can help you with best nutrition. Get rid of diabetes will take time as this degeneration might happened from a long time, but we only come to know when you have a sympton out of it. Let me know for more info.

My daughter is getting head sweat, when checked her vitamin d it is deficient also she is getting hair loss in patches on her head. Her vitamin d level is 15.5 but should be 30 to 100. And her T3 is 1.76 and T4 is 7.15. And TSH is 1.39. So is this hair loss because of heat sweat and vitamin d deficiency?

Hair loss is not due to vitamind low levels or increase in sweat but it seems to be due to fungal infection of the hair follicles as baldness is in patches.

What is your weight, bmi and waist circumference? bmi should be 23 kms per sq meter& waist should be below 90 cms. What is activity level? do you walk for over an h every day? if you maintain your weight and waist and exercise level that will help in reduction of sugar. Please remember every food that we eat (carbs) gets converted to glucose. You have to consume prescribed amount food only. Oil intake should be just half kg per month. No deep fried foods.

General Physician,
Diabetes affects all organs in the body? eyes, kidneys, nerves, reproductive system all are affected, infact, from from toe to hair. It is not as easy task to control blood sugar in the desired normal range. Whatever we eat is metabolised to sugar in the body to provide energy for our daily activities. For the absolute control, one has to monitor his / her blood sugar at regular intervals (self-monitoring of blood glucose? smbg). Though difficult, this can be done by a glucometer and keep a record. Get an idea of fasting sugar (fbs) and 2 hours after food (ppbs) and check before dinner and after every major food. The basic idea is to reduce the food intake to 1/3 of what you take now. The dictum of sugar control is diet, exercise, diet + medicine and at later stage medicine+ insulin will be needed.

Dry skin - Apply coconut oil + camphor (Kapoor) Hairfall - Start taking black til (Seasam) with a glass of lukewarm milk early morning. avoid pickles, spices, oily, greesy food items. Start avle ka murabba. Also have a high protien rich diet e.g. Pulses, Dry fruits, Black gram, Ground nut etc. also oil ur hair with good herbal oil and wash with herbal shamppoo - avoid shampoos with high acid contents. As far as Ayurveda's therapy is concerned - start with Shirodhara with herbal oil and Nasyam therapy for atleast 15 days. This will greatly help. Do gentle massage with herbal hair oil daily night for 15 minutes. Although some herbal medicines might also help you but after proper history taking. For that u may consult me privately over Lyberate. Please update with ur valuable feedback.

What is the prevention of getting sugar! And if it comes what is the diet should be taken.
Mr. Lybrate-user, diabetes is a codition occurring due to either lack of insulin or resistance to its action or both. There are two main types t1 where there is no insulin secretion, patients need insulin injections for treatment and for survival. This starts in invariably in early age. T2 dm seen in adults and older persons. This can be treated by oral drugs and / or insulin injections or both. This is a preventive disease if one adapts a modified life style with regular exercise, weight control, taking balanced diet and avoiding sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods and pastries. Also avoid sweetened aerated drinks, fructose corn syrup containing producs, alcohol and smoking. There is no special diet, one has to take a restricted and planned diet.

Is Diamicron Mr. 15 mg (Gliclazide) sage for long term diabetes medication?
Yes it is safe but any insulin secreatagouge will lead to weight gain. So I preferred any sulfonylurea with a combination of metformin if it is fisible considering other comorbidities.
