Diet and exercise is mainstay of management. You can add gliptins to take care of your high sugars. They are weight neutral. Delays gastic emptying, preserves beta cells.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. The glucose levels mentioned are definitely high. It appears that present (new) treatment is not suiting you. Since no details are mentioned in terms of drugs and dosage, it is difficult to comment. If the previous treatment was giving good results with better glucose control, what was the reason for changing? You should tell the doctor that you were better of with earlier treatment and hence, he should revert you to that. Find out what he says. Or else if you want my advise and treatment please come back with following details: current fasting and PP, glucose levels, HbA1c%, drugs being taken with dosage, dietary pattern and extent of daily exercise. Based on those I will be able to give specific guidance or even shift you to earlier treatment. Choice is yours. Thanks.

You can take Nutrient-rich foods that improve your health may also benefit your thyroid gland, antioxidant-rich fruits and vegetables more plenty of water: Blueberries, tomatoes, bell peppers, and other foods rich in antioxidants can improve overall health and benefit the thyroid gland. Eating foods high in B vitamins, like whole grains, may also help. Selenium: Tiny amounts of selenium are needed for enzymes that make thyroid hormones to work properly. Eating selenium-rich foods, such as sunflower seeds or Brazil nuts, can be beneficial. Tyrosine: This amino acid is used by the thyroid gland to produce T3 and T4. Taking a supplement may help, avoid oily foods,junk foods, go for walk. Tests every 3 to 6 months.i.e. t3,t4,tsh, also do vit.D. and vit. B., s.calcium.

Is there any permanent cure of diabetes? we have tried ayurveda & homeopathic but in vain. The best alternative available at present is insulin - which is not a permanent solution.

Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS), MD - Ayurveda

Dear diabetes is defined as deficiency of available insulin or insulin resistance. So ideally insulin is the only solution for diabetes. Having said so the entire gamut of drugs involved in modern medicines include drugs which interfere with glucose absorption, reduction of insulin resistance, triggering insulin release and increasing insulin receptors on target site. So the management of diabetes as per modern science revolves in and around insulin. Now ayurvedic medicine looks at diabetes as a systemic disorder which has to do something with the basic fat metabolism. The disease if chronic is considered as manageable as per ayurveda but not curable. We need to understand the actual patho physiology in the patient and then can offer a solution.

Dear lybrate-user, There is no harm in taking whey protein or protein supplements to gain muscle. But it depends on quality and quantity of strength trainning. Protein is very essential to keep the sugar levels under control. Do go for a personalized diet plan for best results. Warm Regards,

He has high diabetes. And had gone 3 times in vt condition. And had a ptc. And now he is feeling regularly a breathless. What's your suggestion?

MBBS
General Physician, Ahmedabad
Actually you have not mentioned age of the patient,duration of diabetes,hypertension,and any other complication.Patient must be investigated for cardiac status,any renal complication also.2D echo is must to rule out cardiac failure.Xray chest for lungs and bronchial tree and cardiomegaly.Hypertension will cause heart complication.So in short,go for complete cardiac work up.
