Sugar levels are consistently 150 fasting and 250 PP (HBA1C 8.5) Tried Oxra 10 but had to stop due to infection Please advice if insulin is better than strong oral medications. Also confirm if the same nay be discontinued after sugar is under control. I feel medications are causing complications for me also leading to constipation & acidity.

As you know, your diabetes is not under control and its not good for your health. Yes, its better to take insulin to control diabetes when your sugar levels are high with 2 or more oral medicines. And yes, insulin can be discontinued after diabetes is under control, but that should be supervised and decision taken by your treating doctor.

Yes metformin and voglibose be taken at a same time. Both are the diabetic medications,and Voglibose prevents absorption of sugar from foods whereas the metformin controls insulin effects

Diabetic Neuropathy - How Ayurveda Can Help You Manage It?

How to manage diabetic neuropathy naturally?
Diabetic neuropathy is a chronic medical condition that results in nerve damage. This occurs due to the inefficient usage of insulin hormone in the body. More than 60 diabetic patients shows one or the other signs of neuropathy. The latter can aggravate to more complicated problems, if the blood sugar levels are not kept in check. Here is a list of some natural remedies that will help you fight diabetic neuropathy.

  1. Controlling the blood sugar level: It is important to maintain a healthy blood sugar level to prevent any further damage of blood vessels, nerves, skin, eyes and other parts of the body. The best way to keep your blood sugar in check is by maintaining a healthy diet, exercising on a daily basis and living a stress-free life. Frequent blood sugar tests should be conducted to ensure that the readings are within the accepted level.
  2. A proper diet: Diet of a person has a direct effect on the blood sugar levels. Intake of refined carbs and sugar drinks should be strictly avoided to stabilize blood sugar. Fresh fruits and vegetables that are rich in vitamins and fiber, and are antioxidant in nature should be consumed regularly. Other food items such as wild-caught fish, olive oil, nuts, avocado, coconut oil, egg whites (albumen), legumes and stevia greatly help in maintaining blood sugar level.
  3. Exercise and physical activity: A study conducted by the Journal of Diabetes Complications in 2012 reported that daily exercise significantly helps a diabetic neuropathy patient to bring down the blood sugar to a more accepted level. Walking for a span of 30-45 minutes daily, performing mild exercises, cycling and swimming lower the blood sugar level. They also help the body in using the insulin in a much better fashion, reducing cholesterol and improving blood circulation in the body. Additionally, daily exercise strengthens muscles and increases mobility.
  4. Refrain from toxic chemicals: Chemicals such as pesticides, beauty products and unnecessary antibiotics can lead to kidney stone formation for a patient of diabetic neuropathy. Toxic wastes in the blood aggravate the symptoms of diabetes leading to other complications. Consumption of alcohol or any other nicotine-related products should be stopped as well. They tend to damage the nerve and increase the risk of heart attacks and cardiac arrests.
  5. Stress management: Stress is another culprit responsible for enhancing diabetic neuropathy. It not only escalates the blood sugar level, but also increases the chance of cardiac-related diseases such as cardiac arrest and strokes. Exercise, meditation, practicing hobbies, spending time with friends and family are few ways of relieving stress. Studies have shown that alternate treatments such as acupuncture can also relieve you from stress to a great extent. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an Ayurveda.

Lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Dry cough per say has no relationship with diabetes. It is usually associated with either throat irritation, infection or problems related to lungs Please tell me is she on any drug for high BP like Ramipril or Lisinopril? Because these drugs (ACE - I) can produce dry cough as a side effect. In your information there is absolutely no information on blood glucose control - like Fasting, PP glucose levels, & HbA1c%, so no way to comment on that aspect. Thanks.

My parathyroid hormones level is 172.8 what is the solution? Feeling problem in breathing. Please advise.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician, Alappuzha
A higher-than-normal level may occur with: Disorders that increase phosphate or phosphorous levels in the blood, such as chronic kidney disease Failure of the body to respond to PTH (pseudohypoparathyroidism) Lack of calcium, which may be due to not eating enough calcium, not absorbing calcium in the gut, or losing too much calcium in your urine Pregnancy or breastfeeding (uncommon) Swelling in the parathyroid glands, called primary hyperparathyroidism Tumors in the parathyroid gland, called adenomas Vitamin D disorders, including not enough sunlight in older adults and problems absorbing, breaking down, and using vitamin D in the body. Parathyroid crisis must be treated quickly by replacing lost body fluids and removing the overactive parathyroid tissue. Blood tests — Hyperparathyroidism is diagnosed based upon levels of blood calcium and parathyroid hormone (PTH). In most people with hyperparathyroidism, both levels are higher than normal. Medications to treat hyperparathyroidism include the following: Calcimimetics. A calcimimetic is a drug that mimics calcium circulating in the blood. The drug may trick the parathyroid glands into releasing less parathyroid hormone. This drug is sold as cinacalcet (Sensipar).
