To get pregnant you need to have fallopian tubes patent which is checked by hsg test and semen should be adequate quality which is checked by semen analysis. These both tests are done before the treatment of any infertile couple. Once the above tests are normal, then treatment with clomiphene citrate is started with monitoring of egg. You need to consult a good gynecologist who would start proper treatment for u.

Which of the oils is best and safety for diabetic patients. Kindly describe the reasons about it.
Blend of Desi ghee and mustard oil or if you can afford olive oil. There is ratio of essential fatty acids which keeps you healthy. There are two important fatty acids omega3 and omega 6 and ideal ratio of them 1: 4. If you take refind oils this ratio goes upto 1: 70 or less. Which produces oxidative stess in body and give rise to heart problem. By consuming desi ghee and mustard oil but in less amount this ratio comes 1: 8 which is close to ideal ratio.

Control your pp and sugar by balanced diet. Take low carbohydrate, high protein, moderate fat, high fibrous diet. Take small and frequent meals. Take your dinner before 2 to 3 hours from your sleep. Walk at least for half an hour after dinner and also in the morning for an hour. Always keep your hands clean and do not leave them wet.

Mr. Lybrate-user, if you have diabetes mellitus, then, it is essential to start appropriate treatment. Drugs will depend on the severity of sugar levels and type of diabetes. In addition you will have to take a balanced and restricted diet, that provides exact calories based on your ideal body weight, extent of daily exercise and sugar levels. Plus daily exercise of at least 1 hour. Plus you have to avoid sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries and sweetened aerated drinks. Consume more of green leafy vegetables, salads and permitted fruits about 100 ga day. Avoid alcohol and and smoking.

Diabetes Related Diseases You Should Know

Diabetes Related Diseases You Should Know

Diabetes is an acute ailment that can badly affect your heart, eyes, nerves, kidneys and feet. Therefore, it is important to understand how these organs and components are connected and how diabetes affects them. This will help you to follow your treatment procedure more thoroughly and improve your health condition more effectively.

Beginning of Health Ailments from Diabetes-

When diabetes in a person is not properly regulated and maintained, the blood sugar levels rise up and this syndrome is called 'hyperglycaemia' or high blood sugar. The way sugar particles stick to each other when they are left uncovered for some time, blood vessels within human body also get stuck with sugar in the blood and make it difficult for blood circulation. Over time, this causes a severe damage to blood vessels connected to kidneys, heart, lungs, eyes and nerves.

Diabetes affecting all the major parts of the body-

Having uncontrolled blood sugar for a prolonged period of time can damage the tiny vessels around the eye causing vision troubles and eventual blindness. High levels of blood sugar in the blood vessels that supplies oxygen to the brain, and heart can develop a fat deposit around them leading to stroke and heart attack. Nerves in the human body serve the function of messengers that carry impulses from different body parts to the brain and vice versa. Having high blood sugar levels can damage blood vessels that carry oxygen and blood to all parts of the body. With the passage of time, nerves can get choked, and they may stop sending pain impulses to the brain.

Diabetes or high blood sugar levels can be detrimental for your feet as well. It mostly harms feet in two possible ways- firstly, it can damage the nerves and their functionality which, in turn would stand in the way of feeling pain as well as other problems occurring in your feet.

Secondly, diabetes leads to poor blood circulation, which makes it nearly impossible for sores and infection around the feet to heal. Once the healing process stops, it can even pave the way for amputation.

Lastly, diabetes is equally detrimental for kidneys, which are the filters of the human body. Kidneys are filled with miniature blood vessels, and high blood sugar can lead to clogged vessels, which disturb blood circulation. Once the kidney does not get ample oxygen and blood, lesser amounts of fluids are taken off the body that may subsequently lead to kidney failure.

Therefore, it is time to build awareness and lead a healthier lifestyle to keep diabetes under control, and a good physician will be able to guide you better on this. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

I am suffering from diabetes last few months. I am first release it last year. After 2 months it became normal range. This year after eating plenty of mangoes the blood sugar increase to 554 (pp) and 417 (fasting). Then the doctor prescribed me Tab Exermet GM forte 2 (2+1000) and Tab Tenepride M 500 (20+500) one tablet every day in the morning and in the evening respectively on 17/09/2017. After one month my blood sugar levels come down to 71.5 (fasting) and 98.2 (pp). Then my doctor prescribed me Tab Exermet GM forte 1 (1+1000) and Tab Tenepride (20) one tablet every day in the morning and in the evening respectively on 10/10/2017. After continuing this medicine my blood sugar levels is 103.6 (pp) and 78.4 (fasting) on dated 25/10/2017. Then my question is may I continuing the medicine or stop it or power of medicine reduce?

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. It is good to know that with regular medication you have been able to control diabetes very well. Apart from taking necessary medication it is equally important to take a properly planned diet and exercise regularly so that your blood glucose levels remain in good control. Present levels look very good. Just check HbA1c% also. That will give an idea of long term control. Current treatment looks to be working very well. Thanks.
