My knowledge, there is no medicine in the world so far to cure diabetes. If the claim made is true then diabetes would not have spread as it is now. In india itself there are close 7 crore diabetes patients. T2 diabetes is a condition which can be prevented at the pre diabetic stage, by regular exercise, maintaining normal weight, avoiding too much of sugar and sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods and pastries.

I have hypothyroidism take medicine 100 electrocine I have no childrens thats effected 4 pregnancy.Please tell.
Hi, if you are on treatment for hypothyroidism, then tsh levels should be around 3 to 4 milli units / l and if you want to get conception then tsh levels should be 0.1 to 2.0 milli units/l and through out pregnancy again the levels have to be around 2 milli units only. If tsh levels go higher, fetal growth is affected, miscarriages may occur, over all pregnancy out comes are bad. So please keep that in mind and then plan for pregnancy. Thanks for the question.

Mr. Lybrate-user, the glucose values mentioned show (after food) show that you have impaired glucose tolerance (igt), it is also called as prediabetes. No treatment with drugs is advised, however, a modified lifestyle adaptation is needed to prevent it from progressing to full fledged diabetes. This includes daily exercise of more than 1 hour a day, taking a restricted diet that gives exact calories based on ideal body weight, and extent of daily exercise. Consuming more of green leafy vegetables, salads, fruits. Avoiding sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods, and pastries. Also refrain from aerated sweetened drinks, fructose corn syrup containing products, highly processed foods, high fat milk products. Keep a periodic check of blood sugar.

Mr. lybrate-user, Warm water, lemon with honey is recommended by some as a treatment for reducing weight. As a doctor I am not able to explain how or why it works. Honey is same as either sugar or jaggery, containing sucrose, plus it is having some vitamins and antioxidants. Can be used as a substitute to sugar. Thanks.

Hello, It is absolutely important to keep blood glucose in strict control with fasting close to 100 mg, PP 170 to 180 mg and HbA1c% <7. Otherwise wounds on the foot will not heal rapidly. Which can lead to further problem. It is essential he is put on Insulin injection and a constant monitoring of glucose is done at home. Now if infection is there it necessary to visit a podiatrist (diabetes foot specialist). It is a seroius matter. Thanks.
