Try to gradually reduce the dose and monitor blood sugar/hbA1c 3 monthly. If it remains under control you can discontinue it after consulting Diabetologist/Endocrinologist.

Scientists have observed that aterovastin is of no help. They said taking aterovastin in cholesterol is waste of time even they said it increses the risk of heart attack. Its our fallacy the pherma companies suppresses this kind of research result for their benefits. Soo you come across the truth. Only by proper homeopathic treatment your blood cholesterol and triglycerides will b lower. We have soo mny medicines to lower this thing. U need to avoid the fatty food. Use oil 750 ml per head per month.in which 3 part will b musturd oil 2 part will b rice bran or soya oil. Walk everyday for 40-45 mins briskly it is very much essential. Soo you can contact me through Lybrate for your treatment purposes.

I have diabetes detected 8-9 months ago when it was 300-350 levels. I started treatment and got controlled till the level of 150, however it was not a consistent level. It was fluctuating all the time and shot up with small diet imbalance. Now my H1PAC is 9.5. Medicined has stopped working since last 30-40 days and my blood sugar level is around 200+ fasting and 300-3500 pp. Getting weaker day by day and lost around 6-7 kg in last 30-40 days. Now my age is 31 and weight is only 54 kg. initially doctor confirmed that it is type 2 however he had his doubts also. I do not have any kind of diabetes history in maternal or paternal side even as of now. Please suggest what to do as I am worried. I got married two months ago. Doctor suggested me to take insulin if medicine do not work anymore. Should I take insulin for some time to control the blood sugar level and if yes then how much dose should I take. Also suggest me the process how to inject it and how many times in a day. Also tell me if it is curable going forward. Can I become normal or like normal. Thank you.

Dear patient Treatment of diabetes needs careful monitoring and regular follow up. The technique needs physical demo. The insulin doses needs frequent titration till your sugar levels settle down. For all above you have to consult your nearby diabetologist. For second opinion you may consult me on private chat. Regards.

Increase thirst, increased frequency of urination are some initial symptoms of diabetes but it can vary from being completely asymptomatic to non specific symptoms like weakness, loss of weight, tingling in feet, dry mouth, blurry vision, burning during urination. You need to follow a healthy lifestyle to prevent such metabolic diseases. Type 1 usually occurs at younger age due to insulin deficiency and treated with insulin injections. It can't be cured completely but you can keep it controlled by taking these precautions.

Diabetes, often referred to by doctors as diabetes mellitus, describes a group of metabolic diseases in which the person has high blood glucose (blood sugar), either because insulin production is inadequate, or because the body's cells do not respond properly to insulin, or both. It is a difficult task to control blood sugar in the desired normal range. Whatever we eat is metabolised to sugar in the body to provide energy for our daily activities. For the absolute control, one has to monitor his / her blood sugar at regular intervals (Self-Monitoring of Blood glucose – SMBG). Though difficult, this can be done by a glucometer and keep a record. Get an idea of Fasting sugar (FBS) and 2 hours after food (PPBS), & HbA1C (inform me) and check before dinner and after every major food. The basic idea is to reduce the food intake to 1/3 of what you take now. The dictum of sugar control is diet, exercise, diet + medicine and at later stage medicine+ Insulin will be needed. There are different diet plans of varying calories for each person depending on his activity & life style. For sugar control there is the need for regular advice and follow up. Just one time consultation or advice is not enough to guide a diabetic in scientifically & medically correct manner.

Well in any case the news is not good. PP in all labs is above the limit. Fasting on average is also high. This is classical presentation of Increase level of sugar in blood, aka- Diabetes Mellitus. You shall see a qualified physician around and start your medications at the earliest. The difference is lab reports also varies depending upon what food you had during that same week. Please start the medicine as early as possible. There is nothing to be afraid you will have to take medicine and a simple per day is nothing to have a normal life. Rest your doctor will advise you on examination. You can also follow: 1. Walk for 30 -40 min in morning and evening. 2. Have low quantities of sugar, rice, potato and anything sweet. 3. Take small meals avoid over eating. 4. Try to keep yourself occupied in some work or other, anything of your choice. 5. Have lots of salads comprising of stuffs advised by your doctor.

Thyroid disorders are of 2 types mainly, Hyper and Hypo. As you said the complaints, it corresponds to hypothyroidism condition. In this the blood TFT Tsh hormone will be increased. In Homoeopathic point of view the evolution and suffering symptoms of the individual is essential to prescribe an indicated medicine. So consult a good Homoeopathic physician your near by and get well the complaints of your mother.

Hi, Usually for so many symptoms to occur, the thyroid hormone levels should be quite low. Hence it is unlikely that you have a thyroid problem. Please check your 'Free T3 & Free T4' levels to confirm the same. Thyroid hormone therapy if taken without the presence of hypothyroidism, is actually quite harmful. In addition, similar symptoms can occur simply due to depression & associated disorders. Please check your 'core' body temperature also. Regards.

Hi sir, my wife having thyroid problem what medicine she will take to control. Age 30, planing for child. Kindly guide us.

Mr Ghosh, Thanks for the query. If you are planning for a baby and if hypothyroidism is present, then it is absolutely essential that it is completely brought under control by taking adequate dose of levothyroxine. TSH levels should be maintained below 2 mU/L for conception to occur. Plus throughout the 3 trimesters of pregnancy TSH should be maintained around 2 mU/L. This will ensure proper fetal development and growth. Plus she should avoid soy beans, soy containing products, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, radish, mustard, coffee. Consume more of green leafy vegetables, salads and fruits.Always use whole grain flour for chapati and roti. Avoid pastries and other bakery items, plus foods made out of maida. If you have any doubts please do come back. I will be glad to guide. Thanks

Hello , thyroid usually doesn't cause weight gain more than 6-7 kg, so if weight gain more than that, it is not due to thyroid. Send. Me your last thyroid function test reports and medicines you r taking.

ESR is not any disease which needs treatment. It is only a prognostic sign to ascertain activity of a disease process in the body. When you had typhoid it got raised but after treatment it should come back to normal level.
