Mr. lybrate-user, basically to control blood glucose you need appropriate drug and dosage. Ideally when good control is there FBS should be closer to 100 mg, PP 150 to 160 mg & HbA1c%<6.8. If you have this kind of control then it is good. If not then it is necessary to look at current treatment, dietary practice and extent of daily exercise. If need be some additions may have to be done. As regards IME -9 tablets, there is very little information available. It is a combination of some herbal remedies, based on ancient ayurvedic texts. There is no new research or evidence. No double blind clinical studies are done. Results are based on some lab animal studies. So the choice is yours. Thanks.

Go for Ayurveda treatment. Panchkarma called vamana can give you best results in this situation. Drink lukewarm water always boiled with few seeds of methi or jeera or ajwain. Don't drink normal water n less its intake. Eat light n healthy food lauki tauri parwal tinda karela etc. Avoid fried maida n stale food items .eat barley chapati. Use fresh amla n haldi mix n eat two times a day. Have jamun seed powder 3gm two times a day before food.

May be you need to alter your diet- reduce simple carbohydrates replace it by complex fiber base carbohydrate like fruits, vegetable parathas or fiber base protein like vegetable dals or sprouts. Reduce oil consumption less than 3 teaspoons per day. May weight reduction also help you. If no improvement within 1 month then you may need change of medicine if your hba1c more than 8%

Sugar is a very good medium for the infection to crop up so if the level is on a higher side than even small ailment will take some time to heal.

Hello, if diabetes is diagnosed, is it t1 or t2? because treatment varies in both. T1 will need only insulin injections, t2 can be treated with oral anti-diabetes drugs. Sometimes insulin is used if blood sugar is very high (350 o 400 mg & hba1c%9 plus). Anyway, he needs to be put on appropriate treatment first and blood glucose has to be brought under control. Secondly he should avoid sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries, other bakery items, sweetened aerated drinks (colas), fructose corn syrup containing products, highly processed food products, high fat milk products. Should stay away from smoking and alcohol. Consume more of green leafy vegetables, salads and permitted fruits (100 g a day). Total caloric intake has to be based on ideal body weight, extent of daily exercise and blood glucose levels. If you have any specific doubts please come back. Thanks.

Dear Mr. Singh, it's a good gesture on your part to be concerned of your sister's health! as she's got diabetes from the age of 12, it must be type 1 diabetes mostly. Type 1 diabetes means that pancreas is unable to make insulin and hence patient requires to take insulin for the whole life. But at the same time it's very much possible to lead almost normal life and ulmost normal life expectancy. Following are the ways in which you can help her lead a normal life. 1) at home monitoring of blood glucose with a glucose checking machine at home. 2) keeping glucose between 110-160 mg%. As much as possible. 3) avoid low sugar as much as possible. A sugar less than 72 mg% is defined as low sugar. 4) keep checking her for kidney function, hba1c, lipid profile, blood pressure, eye check and foot checkups to diagnose complications and when detected to address it promptly. 5) to take very stringent care during pregnancy. If possible look for newer option of insulin pump should be considered.

Lybrate-user, as mentioned hypothyroidism treatment has to be for lifetime. There is no option. There are no other remedies. In fact on treatment tsh levels should be around 3 to 4 milli units / ml, then only all the symptoms including hair loss will be under control.

Intra Uterine Insemination (IUI) - When To Go For It?

MD
Gynaecologist, Mumbai
Intra Uterine Insemination (IUI) - When To Go For It?

For the benefit of couples suffering from infertility, modern medical science has introduced several innovative procedures. Some of the popular procedures are In-vitro Fertilization (IVF), Intra Uterine Insemination (IUI), Gamete Intrafallopian Transfer (GIFT), Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI), donor eggs and embryos and so on. In addition to these, there are several drugs and surgical procedures that help the couple in getting rid of infertility. Among all these procedures, IUI has gained popularity in the field of gynaecology and infertility treatment procedures. The IUI treatment is also popularly called as artificial insemination procedure. Although this is a popular procedure, it is appropriate that you should also understand its pros and cons.

IUI procedure in brief:
In simple terms, the IUI procedure involves placing the sperm inside the womb or uterus, which in turn would assist in fertilization of the egg. As a result of this procedure, the sperm reaches the fallopian tube, which enhances the chances or rate of egg fertilisation.

Conditions precedent of IUI Procedure:
Before initiating the IUI procedure, the fast moving eggs are separated from the slow moving eggs. This separation is done in the laboratory. Further, in order to undergo IUI procedure, the women should be less than 40 years of age. On the other hand, apart from healthy fallopian tube, the women should also have higher ovarian reserves. Also, the sperm should have minimum mortality rate. However, IUI procedure is adopted only if the fallopian tube is healthy. IUI procedure is suggested in case the couple is having difficulty in vaginal intercourse, either because of psychosexual reasons or for reasons of physical disability.

The IUI procedure can be performed either with the partner’s egg or with the donor’s egg. Some of the other important aspects of IUI procedure are briefly discussed here:

  1. The IUI procedure is a short duration procedure and it can be completed within a few minutes. This procedure does not cause any discomfort or pain. The procedure does not require any hospitalisation or administration of anesthesia. Further, the procedure also does not cause any side effects. In fact, compared to the IVF procedure, IUI is cost-effective.
  2. In order to enhance the level of success, the gynaecologist may suggest IUI procedure every month. In some cases, the gynaecologist may also prescribe a few medicines to simulate the ovulation procedure. Except this, IUI may not involve extensive medication.

Summary:
You may undergo the IUI procedure under the supervision of sufficiently experienced gynaecologist. Further, you may also ensure the hospital is equipped with modern state of art machineries for carrying out the IUI procedure.

Only exercise is not a option to becoming diabetes it depends on your life style or heridritry or your family history. It depends on your eating habits and time management.
