I am 48 years old I am suffering for diabetic and blood pressure please Advise medicine.

General Physician (AM)
Alternative Medicine Specialist, Chandigarh
Having diabetes makes high blood pressure and other heart and circulation problems more likely, because diabetes damages arteries and makes them targets for hardening (atherosclerosis). Atherosclerosis can cause high blood pressure, which if not treated, can lead to blood vessel damage, stroke, heart failure, heart attack, or kidney failure. You can consult me in private for detailed treatment which is available in biochemic system of medicine depending upon symptomatically. Eatng lots of garlic. If you cant have it get it homeopathically allium sativum (biochemic) nat phos 30x, avoid all types of fats and red meat.

Is vitiligo (skin problem, white spots) linked to diabetes. If no then what is the cause behind it. How it can be cured.

Is vitiligo (skin problem, white spots) linked to diabetes. If no then what is the cause behind it. How it can be cured.
Hii lybrate-user, 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. Ayurvedic herbal medicines are used to purify blood and stop the spread of disease and external application are capable of quickly start regimentation. 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. Extra use of haldi and vit. C should be avoided in vitiligo. You can send pictures of vitiligo effected parts. We will review your case and will guide you best possible treatment and time frame required.

BP medicines - pulse rate is on lower side , you are taking blood thinners also and a medicine to produce more urine to reduce load on heart due to congestive heart failure , plus you must be taking injection insulin for type 1 diabetes and a restricted diet. Take adequate amounts of potassium present in oranges , lemon , amla and drink more water and juices as allowed in your diet chart. Consult your treating doctor if need be.

Hi doctor, I am suffering from high uric acid 7.2. For this I am taking homeopathic medicine (mother tincture urtica urens). But there is no visible results. Please suggest some good allopathic medicine to reduce my uric acid.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Mr. Lybrate-user, to control uric acid (if raised and having any symptoms like pain in joints or gout), then there is a need for drugs to reduce uric acid or excrete it. Plus there may be a need for pain killers. If there are no symptoms at all and only blood shows raised uric acid, then there is no reason to worry about. You can control intake of foods which are rich in purines like organ meat, red meat, certain sea foods such as herring, trout, haddock, scallops, sardines, salmon, anchovies, mussels, mushrooms and shell fish. Also avoid alcohol and sweetened drinks, high fat milk products. You can consume a good deal of green leafy vegetables, fruits, and eggs, milk products etc. This will help in reducing uric acid.

If it is indeed type-1 diabetes, you will have to continue taking insulin for the rest of your life. However, if you are not comfortable with multiple daily injections, then there are different modes of insulin delivery systems like the insulin pump that you can opt for.

My age is 53 years, In the last two years I lost weight for 10 kgs, And eye sight increased to + 2.5, I am in border line of sugar, BP 140/100, Am I diabetic patient, who have met me after long time they told that I become week and lean, what kind of precautions to be taken ?

FVRS, DNB Ophthalmology, MS Ophthalmology, MBBS, FICO

The +2.50 power that you have is normal for your age. It is called presbyopia and it is due to the notmal weakening of the ciliary muscles which occur with age. No special precautions need be taken as regards to eye, except of course good diabetic control and yearly reguler checkups

Can you please tell me what are the remedy for diabetes.

Certified Diabetes Educator, Registered Dietitian (RD), PGDD, Bachelor of Unani Medicine and Surgery (B.U.M.S), General Physician
Dietitian/Nutritionist,
Can you please tell me what are the remedy for diabetes.
Do let me know your hba1c value? also you need to provide me your daily food intake details. There are many lifestyle and dietary guidelines that can be followed: take high fiber prescribed diet which includes soluble fibre like apple, isabgol etc. Get more physical activity. eat a balanced diet which includes whole grains and excludes all refined products like maida as prescribed. if you're overweight, diabetes prevention may hinge on weight loss. Every pound you lose can improve your health, and you may be surprised by how much. Participants in one large study who lost a modest amount of weight around 7 percent of initial body weight and exercised regularly reduced the risk of developing diabetes by almost 60 percent.
