Sir, I have read that our SIDDHARSs told that instead of walking in a straightway, if we walk in the shape of 8 (Eight) (In size 6' Breath and 12" Length) will reduce the level of Sugar and make the body fit in 30 days. Is this correct and shall I try it?

Go ahead walking in any way is good walking and turning burns a bit more calories and pressure over pancreas.

Where to inject insulin (Sites) ?

Where to inject insulin (sites)?

Insulin is injected subcutaneously, i. E just below the skin in fatty tissue. If insulin is injected deeper in muscles then it may get absorbed quickly and can lead to low sugars. Insulin should not be given in scars, moles, varicose veins, sites with broken blood vessels etc. As it may alter its absorption. Insulin injection site must be rotated each time to avoid lipodystrophy (at least, take insulin injection an inch apart from the previous site).

Sites where you can take insulin injection:

  1.     Abdomen: this is a preferable site for self-administration since absorption of insulin is quicker and predictable. You can take insulin, at least, two fingers width away from belly button.
  2.     Thigh: this is second best site after abdomen for self-administration of insulin injection. Top and outer aspect of the thigh is preferred. Avoid injecting insulin on the inner side of the thigh.
  3.     Arms: normally when somebody else is administrating insulin to diabetes patient it can be given on outer back aspect of the arm away from shoulder and elbow in fatty tissue.
  4.     Buttocks: upper outer padded part (wallet area) is a preferred spot.

My grandfather is suffering from diabetes is there any way to preventive steps not in form medicines like nutritional.
If diabetes is already diagnosed then there is no question of prevention. Prevention is only possible when diabetes has not yet occured or it is at prediabetes stage. At that time weight control, regular exercise and diet restriction help in prevent progression to diabetes. But once the disease is dignosed treatment with appropriate drugs is the only option in addition to above mentioned measures. Thanks for the question.

Aap ke sugar levels kitne rahte hai? the problem described by you can occur in diabetes if it is uncontrolled. First thing is to bring sugar levels near normal. Weight also has to be in check. Then you can try cap mego - xl once a day for a month. But primary thing is absolute sugar control.

TSH level 4.4 is normal.It is not affecting your menstrual cycle.Not having physical relation will not affect the menstrual cycle.Occasionally irregular cycle can occur in a female.Of recurs consult your gynecologist to rule out problems like PCO.Too much of workout also will delay the period.

I am 64 years old. My uric acid is diagnosed on higher side (9.8) for over last 35 years. If I take two Zyloric of 100 mg in a day, it reduces to around 5. How safe is to take Zyloric on regular basis? I normally give a gap of 4 weeks after about 6 weeks of medicines. Is it advisable to take one tablet of 300 mg every day.

Mr. Lybrate-user, you have not mentioned the blood glucose levels (fasting & pp) and your age. The reason for blood glucose not reducing or not coming to normal may happen due to either inadequate dose of insulin or food intake is more than the actual need. At 51 kg weight, unless you increase daily exercise, caloric intake has to be 51 kgs x 25 cals = 1275 calories. Your present intake appears to be higher and exercise is very much inadequate. You need to exercise at least for 1 hour or more. If you want specific advise please come in a private conversation with all the above details, then I will be able to guide. Thanks.
