Will a person with Type 2 diabetes under control end up with the need for insulin?
Diet, exercise, oral medication are three basic steps to control type 2 diabetes. Depending on availability of free endogenous insulin and control this will work in most of the cases but at times during temporary crisis like surgery, heart attack etc insulin has to be brought in temporarily. When things go out of hand insulin may have to be introduced may not be in all cases.

I understand your sentiments when you say that you want to control your diabetes without medicines. I want to tell you that it is possible. But only for those patients who are at a very early stage of diabetes which means that they have very low sugar derangement which can be handled by exercise and diet alone. Only way to know that is by trying dietary compliance and good exercise regime. After these efforts if your sugar gets in control then you can sure that you can avoid medicines. But remember two things. Checking of sugars should be regular. One time control does not mean consistent control. Second, if your sugars are out of control then don't keep avoiding medicines because your body is facing the bad effects of diabetes already.

Too much cholesterol in the blood can lead to cardiovascular disease. What you eat has a direct impact on your cholesterol level. In fact, a diet rich in fiber and other cholesterol-lowering foods may help lower cholesterol as much as statin medication for some people. Working with a registered dietitian and doctor is the key to develop and maintain a successful health program to manage it. I will inform you on how to make diet, lifestyle changes, make you understand instructions for taking medication because it won't work if you don't take it as directed. Consult privately for a holistic dietary therapy to solve your problems.

Dear patient, most common conditions of sexual activity are pre mature ejaculation, erectile dysfunction & micro penis (small penis). The main symptom of premature ejaculation is an uncontrolled ejaculation either before or shortly after intercourse begins. And erectile dysfunction, or ed, is the inability to achieve or sustain an erection suitable for sexual intercourse. Microopenis is a condition in which penis is much smaller than the normal length, hence no sexual satisfaction. Common causes include, habits, drug addiction, excess of masturbation, poor nutriiton, stress, anxiety. Most successful treatments for all the above mentioned 3 problems, include both correction of life style & diet, and proper consumption of homeo medicines till completion of course. 9 out of 10 cases now, responds well to morkoprad energy pills therapy [commontly known as mep], which is completely natural and safe. Go for this formula based therapy and revert back with result. For any doubts, feel free to ask regarding treatment criteria. Take care.

Hi, I advice her to take a healthy diet with lots of vegetables n salads. If she's overweight than she should try to reduce weight. Stopping medicines for thyroid may not be possible but can be reduced slowly then if possible can be stopped.

Amla can be taken in diabetic kya? And what we should eat in diabetic. please help.
Yes amla can be taken in diabetes- it's a good vit c source but not the one preserved in sugar/jaggery (amla ka murraba). Major dietary advice for diabetes is to avoid high fat content - so don't take any fried stuff. Take foods with low or moderate glycemic index. Glycemic index of any food item is the speed at which your sugar rises in blood after consuming it.
