In diabetes the most important thing is diet and exercise.These two things can control high sugar levels.So do regular exercise like walking,yoga,sit ups and other free hand exercises.Take balanced diet.Eat small amount of foods more frequently.Take foods 5-6 times instead of 3 big meals.Avoid fast foods,junk foods,processed foods,sugar,sweetened juice,soft drinks,underground vegetables pumpkin,banana.Eat unrefined foods but not more.Take watery vegetables,whole fruits.Take egg white,lean meat,fish,dairy products and other protein sources more to control diabetes.Add small amount of healthy fats.Take walnut,almond,seeds.Drink lots of water specially before meals.Avoid smoking,alcohol.Use nutritional supplement in this regard.Take stress free rest and these will help you.

Along with your mentioned medicine you must start some ayurvedic medicine. We provide you. For your better life and prevention of further damage of organs like kidney; eye only medicines given to you are not sufficient. Also go for regular check up of dm like hba1c every 3 months. We strongly recommend few medicines if you submit your detail history.

I love the concept of healing with food, food as medicine, or as I like to call it, food pharmacology

Turmeric is a plant of the ginger family that is often used in Indian cuisines. This plant has a long history of medicinal use, and  it’s most studied active ingredient has anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, antibacterial and antiviral activity.

Historically, turmeric has been used to treat pain , stomach and liver ailments , many skin conditions like  sores, eczema and skin rashes. 

Excess inflammation is always present in Hashimoto’s thyroiditis (the suffix "itis" denotes inflammation in the thyroid gland .It is most common cause of Hypothyroidism). Turmeric can be helpful in reducing whole body inflammation

Studies of the effect of curcumin, the active ingredient of turmeric on the thyroid gland and autoimmunity have showed encouraging results.

Curcumin showed tumor inhibiting activity in thyroid cancer.

Curcumin was protective against the genetic damage and side effects induced by radioactive iodine that is sometimes used to treat Graves’ disease (hyperthyroidism)

Curcumin has anti-inflammatory benefits that can be helpful in down-regulating autoimmune conditions

While curcumin can also boost glutathione (an antioxidant that's often depleted in Hashimoto's)

Use of turmeric helped in reducing pain , increase in energy , improvement in mood and an improvement in thyroid antibodies 

Daily intake of curcumin in a typical Indian diet may be anti-inflammatory, however, curcumin is cleared from the body within one hour or so
Combining curcumin with piperine, (found in pepper), extends the life of curcumin in the body, helping it to stick around longer. 

I also made Turmeric Tea (recipe below) twice per day

1 teaspoon of turmeric
1 teaspoon of ginger
pinch of pepper
pinch of cinnamon
juice of one lemon
sweetener to taste (Stevia is Dr.Tanvi’s  top recommendations)
1 cup of hot water

Directions: Put all ingredients in cup of your choice, top of with boiling water and mix!

Thank you for Reading it. I hope it will be helpful to you.

My grandfather (65+) was a diabetic patient he had injury in his leg fingers, we contacted doctor and he advised to remove the finger as it Is very bad in condition and we did the same. Now after 10 days of monitoring there is a black skin appearance at his near by leg fingers (doctor saying that is due to blood not reaching those places properly) now doctor says to remove upto leg ankle as blood flow is not proper upto that areas. Is there anyway to save my grandfather.

I am 43 years my thyroid TSH is 150 last year October but again I tested this year August TSH is 117 and I started treatment of tablet 75 mg for 45 days again tested a week back TSH 15 Now what can I do.

MBBS, DNB
Nuclear Medicine Physician, Mumbai
Kindly repeat TSH only after 3 months of changing the dose and that too if you have been taking the medication regularly. If TSH has still not normalized then increase the dose of medication by 12.5 microgram and again repeat test after 3 months.

Mr. K V Sethuraman, Your blood glucose levels are fairly good, within the recommended limits, particularly fasting glucose. What is the HbA1c%, it should be <7. If you have well controlled diabetes, then you can donate the kidney to a needy person.

lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. WHen on treatment with adequate dose of levothyroxine tablets (Eltroxin), TSH should be maintained between 3 to 4 mU/L, for being free from all the symptoms. In your case TSH level is much lower than expected. So you should reduce the dose by 12.5 mcg to 37.5 mcg per day. Then check TSH level after 6 weeks. Thanks.

I am 61 year old type-2 diabetic. My fasting always remains high. My latest glucose fasting is 144, glucose PP is 145 and HbA1C is 7.3 with ayurvedic medicines and physical exercises. Do I need more medicines to bring down my glucose fasting? I understand that a random measurement of up to 180 is considered as pre-diabetic.

Fasting 144 and HbA1c 7.3 suggests established diabetes. At present you can start 20 min walk after dinner which might help in controlling fasting. Later on you may need to start metformin. Please consult any diabetologist before starting medication.

Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. You have got multiple problems for which you actually need to see a general physician. For your spine pain, - to maintain proper posture while working and sleeping - if pain is more then you can take a short course of an anti-inflammatory medication which suits you - physical therapy initially under supervision of a trained physiotherapist and then to continue at home - adequate calcium & vitamin d intake if levels are low in body - ice packs can applied if your pain is acute, then hot fomentation can be done at home - analgesic spray for local application can be used and is easily available. - avoid lifting heavyweight/ acute forward bending in mornings etc in case you are having back pain. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance. You can also discuss your case and treatment plans with me in a greater detail in a private consultation.

CDIABT, MBBS
Endocrinologist, Mumbai
What are the symptoms of diabetes And what should I take medicine for that disease.
Symptoms are increased urination, increased thirst, hunger, weakness, tiredness, weight loss etc. For diabetes follow a diet low in carbohydrate, low in fat and high in fibre. Walking for 30 mins a day for at least 5 days in a week is recommended. Follow a stress free life. Medicine will depend upon blood sugar report.
