I will suggest you to opt for homoeopathic treatment if you are not taking any medicines presently as these medicines have no sideeffects and will not only regulate your sugar levels but also improve your lifestyle.

What are symptoms of diabetes at age of 40 and how can be cured it without medicines.
Mr Kali Ram, Diabetes Mellitus usually does not produce any symptoms, that is one of the reasons why many people do not notice that they have diabetes. When it is fully developed most often causes excess urination, excess thirst, excess hunger, unexplained weakness and tiredness. It is a condition that occurs due to either lack of Insulin or resistance to its action or both. It can only be controlled, there is no cure.

Vitiligo is a genetic disorder trigger by indigestion and stressful conditions. There was always confusion in patients mind regarding choosing right treatment approach for vitiligo. Allopathy can give quick results but is not very safe for long term uses if steroids are used. Homeopathic is safe but very slow and in most of cases it can not stop the spread of disease i. E old patches shows some recovery but new white patches continue to come even when we are using homeopathy. If one think about using ayurveda there is no good vaidya who is expertise in vitiligo. At our clinic we have integrated external allopathic applications with internal ayurvedic medication to give fast and long lasting results. Ayurvedic herbal medicines are used to purify blood and stop the spread of disease and external application are capable of quickly start regimentation. With a expertise in treating thousands of patients in past years. Kayakalp global is leading skin clinic in india to treat vitiligo. For detail replies regarding 1. Causes of vitiligo 2. Is it genetic or can it spread to next generation 3. Causes of spread of disease after it remains stable for some years 4. Should we use homeopathy, allopathy or ayurveda. You can contact clinic for details via lybtate. You can send pictures of vitiligo effected parts. We will review your case and will guide you best possible treatment and time frame required.

Hi, Wearing the tight jeans or skinny fit jeans and underwear puts pressure on the testicles. And is this may lead to infertility? If so what is the precautions to take care?

Hello- yes wearing tight clothes presses the testicles more towards the skin and due to slightly increased temperature of skin (body) the sperm production process of testicles gets affected leading towards infertility. Testicle need a temperature less thn the body temperature that is the reason why it is situated away from the body in sac called as scrotum.

Being a diabetic, it's important to get your weight under control, for nerve compression you could try non surgical treatment, you need however to be aware that progression of the nerve pressure can result in paralysis of the legs.

I am happy to read that you are doing yoga regularly" sarvangasana" is a specific aasan for thyroid and you must practise it for at least five minutes every day. Constipation is due to thyroid deficiency, when was the last time you got your thyroid checked? please let me know the result, I want to see scanned copy of the report. Report should not be older than one month. Dizziness while walking can be because of low haemoglobin of low vit d3. Please get blood checked for these two and let me know the result.

My husband had monor diabetis but he is constantly losing body mass so wat should we do?

Dietitian/Nutritionist, Mumbai
I am a registered dietitian and doctor who will help you in losing your weight. Let me know your food intake details. The best diet is one which is healthy and well balanced with foods from all the food groups, and one which is varied and that you can stick to weight loss on some diets can be dramatic in the short term, but there's more of a chance of rebound weight gain. Set yourself a realistic target and aim to lose between (0.5-1.0kg) a week I being a registered dietitian strongly accommodate the patients own preferences without the patient feeling that they are on a diet not compromising the weight management goals. Don't fall for self dieting or fad diets availiable online they have harmful effects in the long run, if you lose a lot of weight very quickly, you may not lose as much fat as you would with a more modest rate of weight loss. Instead, you might lose water weight or even lean muscle tissue, since it's hard to burn that many fat calories in a short period. I will need to carry out detailed assessment in your case, after assessing your personal challenges to weight loss, I will recommend a strategy to gradually change habits and attitudes that have sabotaged your past efforts. Reply back for private consultation for a holistic dietary therapy which includes diet, simple workouts and few medications.

For your age excessive urination could be due to 1. Drinking lot of water/ excess tea/ coffee/alcohol 2. Urinary tract/bladder infection 3. Bladder stone causing a blockage in ureter/bladder, stone in urinary tract, cystitis, interstitial nephritis 5. Diabetes mellitus/diabetes inspidus, hypertension, 6. Stress/anxiety/nervousness, 7. Do urine re/me, blood sugar testing, take usg kub, and consult urologist for advice.

Top Five Tips From The Dentist For Diabetics

Top Five Tips From The Dentist For Diabetics
Among the many health risks of diabetes is a decline in oral health that makes patients more vulnerable to gum disease. According to dental professionals, this happens because diabetes slows the body's circulation, making the gums more susceptible to infection. The metabolic disorder also increases glucose (sugar) levels in saliva, which fuels the growth of dental plaque that attacks the teeth and gums. To protect against the disorder, follow these simple tips.

1. Visit your dentist regularly.

Because diabetics are at a much higher risk of gum disease than the average patient, you should never miss a dental appointment. In fact, you should schedule regular checkups two to four times a year. With professional cleanings and regular examinations, common mouth conditions, such as ulcers, dry mouth, and infections can be controlled. To prevent bouts of low blood sugar, it may be a good idea to eat before you see your dentist. It is also crucial that you inform him or her of any oral problems you may be having -- no matter how minor they may seem.

2. Follow a strict oral hygiene regimen.

All diabetics should and really must brush and floss daily, preferably after every meal. This will help remove the plaque that can cause gum disease, thereby lowering your risk for mouth ulcers and infections. It is recommended that you complete your oral hygiene routine at least three times a day. Because your risk of oral infection is elevated, it is important to avoid aggressive brushing that can cause cuts and sores. You may even want to use a soft-bristled brush or an electric model for a safer, more comfortable brushing experience.

3. Control your blood sugar.

As we mentioned, sugar stimulates plaque growth, which causes tooth decay and gum disease. Because diabetics have more glucose (sugar) in their blood, they also tend to have a lot more plaque on their teeth. But if you can keep your blood sugar low, you can reduce your risk of periodontal disease.

4. Don't smoke.

In a perfect world, nobody would smoke -- especially people with diabetes. The unhealthy activity causes a laundry list of serious complications, including oral infections and periodontal diseases. According to dental professionals, smoking can more than double your risk of cavities and infections.

5. Clean your dentures.

If you have diabetes and you wear false teeth, you are more prone to developing oral thrush -- a fungal infection of the mouth. Typically caused by denture irritation or wear, thrush can be prevented with regular cleaning. It is also recommended that you remove your dentures in between meals to give any irritated tissue the opportunity to heal. Your dentist might also advise you to limit your sugar intake when your mouth is bothered or raw.

Hi, Sugars have a strong correlation with stress. Sugars may go high or low when a diabetic patient stresses out also similar issues arise if a patient had infection.

Dear Rajiv , After going through your reports it seems the diabetes has attacked to kidney.the creatinine level is high, the uric acid is high.rest of reports seems normal. long standing diabetes definitely attacks your whole body slowly but if diabetes is in control you can avoid consequences. I will advise you to see me after doing two blood investigation 1. FBS, PPBS 2. HbA1c You must be familiar with both of these investigation. first one will show us current status of diabetes and second will show past 3 months status.

I am 26 yrs old. I have thyroid and continuously gaining weight, inches. Not able to continue exercise routine. Please suggest want to do to reduce weight. I get tired easily. Feel stressed, frustrated. Please help me in getting rid of all these things.

Diploma in Diabetology, MBBS

Dear, please check your tsh levels. Ideally it should fall between 1 & 2. If not, then you need to get your medication doses altered. Check again after 6 weeks of altering the dose. The only way to lose the gained weight is to follow a proper diet and exercise regime. Thyroid is a lifelong illness, so take your medications properly and you should be fine.
