Herpies is a viral condition, it will take it's course of time. Take medicine as suggested by doctor. See a good Ayurveda doctor. Raktamokshan (blood letting) by leaches is a very effective treatment in Ayurveda for herpies. It will give immidiate relief from severe burning.

Mr. Lybrate-user, with fbs 276 mg & pp 426 mg/100 ml, you have very severe uncontrolled diabetes. You need to start immediate treatment with appropriate anti-diabetes drugs. There is no option. Otherwise you are liable to get any one of the severe long term complications of diabetes. It is also necessary for you get your eyes checked to see if there is any affection to your retina. Your bmi is 28 kgs /m2 (normal <23 kgs/m2), showing over weight. Your ideal body weight should be 70 kgs. Hence your diet should be such tahe provides calories based on ideal body weight, daily exercise and blood glucose levels. When diabetes is in check fbs should be nearer 100 mg, pp 150 to 160 mg/100 ml & hba1c%<6.8. Otherwise there can be serious consequences. If you need specific treatment advise please come in a private conversation, where I will be able to advise specifically. Thanks.

Control diabetes first and with deranged kidney function it is very difficult to titrate insulin dose, as there is a chance of low sugar so it is better to admit him and adjust sugrar level, or by calling sugar report and adjust insulin dose what is his daily urine output? U need a glucometer, start NOVOTAPID 5 UNITS BEFORE MEAL THICE DAILY IF PREMEAL SUGAR >150.

lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. The mentioned report has fasting glucose as normal, but after food is in the pre-diabetes range. Which means unless care is taken she may become diabetic in next few years. F the height and weight mentioned is correct, then she is very obese. That can lead to diabetes. Thanks.

May be not. The present levels are because of control that has been achieved because of diet, medications etc. And may not be long lasting. Your second reading suggests you are in impaired glucose tolerance category at least now. I think you should review the status after about 2-4 weeks of diet control and exercise. Then get your 1. Fasting, and 2 hrs after food and before dinner tests done as also hba1c. Then discuss with your consultant. For introducing medications. I don't think stopping all medicines will work and periodic review and diet anti diabetic mangement will have to be continued.

Why blood sugar control is so important

The average blood sugar rises gradually and as it rises there is damage occurring throughout the body. Out of control blood sugar levels can lead to serious short term problems such as hypoglycemia, hyperglycemia, or diabetic ketoacidosis.

In the long run, uncontrolled blood sugar can also damage the vessels that supply blood to important organs, like the heart, kidneys, eyes, and nerves. This can occur even when you feel OK. That's why it's so important to take action as soon as you're diagnosed with diabetes. Our bodies are amazing, but unfortunately once you have a heart attack or stroke, or your kidneys fail, or you become blind, the damage can't be undone.

The good news is that paying attention to blood sugar control can help keep you healthy and prevent health problems from happening later. Some tips:

Keep your blood glucose within your goal range as much as possible. Work with your diabetes team to develop and maintain a plan.
Take your diabetes medication as prescribed. If you're on insulin, ask to see a diabetes educator to learn how to adjust your dose.
Increase physical activity. If you aren't physically active, talk to your health care provider about suitable activities. If you haven't exercised in awhile, consider beginning with five to ten minutes of daily physical activity and gradually increase your activity to at least 30 minutes of physical activity most days of the week.
Achieve and maintain a healthy weight. Even a 5 percent to 7 percent weight loss will help you better manage your blood glucose.

The quality of your future life depends on the decisions and actions that you take today.

I have thyroid and all time I'm trouble with pain in my body. Can you help me how can I control my thyroid?
I believe its Hypothyroidism. If yes then following physical activities will help you relieve Pain and Control Thyroid: * 20 to 60 minutes of near-daily aerobics — really any exercise that gets your heart pumping — can help speed up your metabolism and counter weight gain, a common hypothyroidism symptom and a contributor to joint pain. * But if you have joint or knee pain, choose low-impact aerobics. Go for the elliptical over the treadmill to avoid pounding knee pain. * A stationary bike at the gym is also easier on the knees. * Swimming is the ideal low-impact aerobic exercise — the water buoys your body and cushions joints.

A high uric acid level can be caused when your body either produces too much uric acid or your kidneys don't eliminate uric acid rapidly enough. A high uric acid level may cause increasingly frequent attacks of gout, or it may never cause problems. A high uric acid level may also cause some people to develop kidney stones or kidney failure. And some people with a high uric acid level also develop high blood pressure, heart disease or chronic kidney disease, but it's often unclear whether this is a direct cause or merely an early warning sign of these conditions. Factors that may cause a high uric acid level in your blood include: Diuretic medications (water pills),Drinking too much alcohol,Genetics (inherited tendencies),hypothyroidism (underactive thyroid),Immune-suppressing drugs,Niacin, or vitamin B-3, obesity,psoriasis, Purine-rich diet — organ meat, game meat, anchovies, herring, gravy, dried beans, driedpeas, mushrooms and other foods Renal insufficiency — inability of the kidneys to filter waste Tumor lysis syndrome — a rapid release of cells into the blood caused by certain cancers or by chemotherapy for those cancers,Also, you may be monitored for high uric acid levels when undergoing chemotherapy or radiation treatment for cancer. Avoid protein diets, avoid more milk products. bad habits , fast food/fat/oily,salty foods. Coffee, smoking, alcohol intake. Non-veg., take whole grain,oats,green veg.,plenty of water in day time, 1 glass of water at night before bed.Take tab. Zyloric 100 mg once a day.Take tab. Bencid 500 mg once a day. Tab. Ulracet sos or tab. Naprosyn 500 mg once a day or sos for pain in joints.

Hello, Madam, the reason for suggesting Insulin treatment is that with oral drugs blood glucose control may not be proper. Ideally when in control FBS should be closer to 100 mg, PP 150 to 160 mg & HbA1c% <6.8. If there is persistent hyperglycemia even with oral drugs, then Insulin is the only option. I am sure you are aware, diabetes occurs mainly due to insulin deficiency plus resistance to its action (T2 DM). In fact safest and most effective drug to treat diabetes is Insulin injections. It helps to achieve excellent blood glucose control. If you have any doubts please do come back. Thanks.
