Mr you have not mentioned whether blood sugar levels are in control, I need to know fasting, pp and hba1c levels and the medication being taken to give a proper advise. Weight loss may occur if diabetes is uncontrolled. Please furnish all the information.

Hi- alternative could be proper diet 1000-1200 kal/ day diet. Right medications. Fre hand exercises. But should be practicing as per diabetologist's advice, proper suggestions & of course if these are really fit for you. But still patients can improve like this way as we are noticing.

Hi, I want to take treatment thyroid which Dr. should I consult gyno Dr. or general physician .Please suggest.

None of them, Get to know the correct tests to do as well as the treatment protocols. You might not get the right information from your treating doctor if he is not aware of the pitfalls of the testing and treatment protocols. That is the reason world wide hypothyroid patients are on life long medications with the the autoimmune component not addressed correctly One has to do the right tests 7 of them and not the only TSH. FreeT4 and Free T3 Which is the common tests done by even endocrinologists all over the world. The remaining 4 tests need to be done and what patients are prescribed is the synthetic. T4 Thyroxine known by brands like Thyronorm./ Synthroid /Eltroxin are not the correct drugs Because T4 is not the active hormone which is what most of the drs prescribe T3 is the active hormone. T4 has to get converted to T3 in the presence of a healthy liver and adequate levels of nutrients like, Iodine,Zinc, B12 etc if your body lacks any of these nutrients and if you have a unhealthy liver your body is not able to convert T4 to T3 and you will be on life long medication The lesson everybody should learn is to not blindly believe the drs. You get educated and empower yourself Do your homework properly and you have to take personal responsibility for your own health. So go to the Right doctor Get the Right tests and get the Right Advice Make your thyroid work for you and not against you. Get a consult after sharing name and phone number and Get educated and not medicated.

Pain behind the heel is usually due to Achille's Tendinitis (inflammation of the Achille's tendon). It can easily be treated with rest, the right footwear and simple pain relieving medicines. I guess you didn't sustain any injury to the region.

Hello, I have one important query here and I would really much appreciate if anyone can give me a meaningful suggestion. My Mom is suffering from Diabetes since 26 years and currently she is on insulin. Her Diabetic level used to be high sometimes but now a days the level is decreasing. She does take timely medicines and goes for a regular checkup once in a month but recently the doc advised to take some tests which included some Kidney tests, ECG, Eco cardiology etc. The doc said that her creatinine level is high which needs some Av Fistula to be done. I was little surprised after doing a little research what Fistula is. It seems it's a preparation for Kidney dialysis. She is in Kashmir presently and I really don't think that the medical facility is good there and the doctors too. I was planning to get her here to Delhi for check up and to figure out what needs to be done in order to balance creatinine level. I would request you if you give me a little bit of explanation about the procedure and also suggest me which hospital will be good to visit for the same. I don't want to take any chance. Will appreciate your help. Thanks.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Your information is very general. There are no specific values mentioned to know exactly what is the situation. When diabetes goes on for over 20 plus years, that too if improperly controlled (with high blood glucose levels), then kidneys are affected, that leads to increased level of creatinne. You have not given either blood glucose levels (fasting & PP & HbA1c%), BP readings plus creatinine and urea. If doctor has recommended dialysis means matter is serious enough. Any good hospital in Delhi is good enough as all of them should be having specialists. Thanks.

Hi, presently you are on triple drug therapy with optimal dose of each medicine. As your sugar after food is 260 it seems that more tighter control of blood glucose levels is needed the exact blood glucose for you may differ according to your age and associated comorbidities. But before increasing your medicines it is necessary to know whether you are taking present medications in correct timings voglibose has to be taken 15 to 20 minutes before food along with medications exercise and diet control will help a lot exercise will reduce overall medicines requirements by decreasing insulin resistance and small but frequent diet will not allow blood glucose to rise up too high!

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. The fasting and PP glucose levels mentioned are high, particularly fasting is too high. This suggests your present treatment is not adequate. It has to be upgraded. When on appropriate treatment with good blood glucose control the glucose levels should be: FBG: < 100 mg, PP 150 t0 160 mg and HbA1c% <6.8. That helps one remain very healthy and free from the long term complications of diabetes. Therefore, there is need for giving a re-look at your current treatment, dietary control and daily amount of exercise. Thanks.

Pain in throat may be due to Allergy cum infection in throat. Through examination of throat is required. If required after taking throat swab for culture and sensitivity, accordingly antibiotics and Antihistamincs, Analgesics can be given.
