Mr. lybrate-user, Do you mean blood glucose veries between 23 mg to 444 mg? Because 23 mg is a very low and dangerous level. That can lead to severe weakness even coma. It will be better if you give following details Fasting, PP current levels, HbA1c%, drugs being taken for diabetes with dosage, dietary pattern and extent of daily exercise. Based on those details I will be able to give some suggestions. Thanks.

I am 38 years old and have hb of 9.2% I am suffering from thyroid for which I take medicines regularly. When I was 12 years I had hb of 5% then after having 5 years of medical treatment doctors couldn't found the reason for anemia I went through all test but after bone marrow doctors told I had deficiency of b12, folate and iron, but why this deficiency occurred they couldn't found out. As my age increased my hb levels were restored when I was 28 my hb was 14% without any medicine now for the past 2 years it was between 10 to 11 % and now I have 9.2% I don't want to take alopathy medicine. You have any idea for homeopathy medicine which can increase my hb level to normalcy kindly help.

the reasons for your less hb levels dhould b excluded first. Try to rise iron content related food in your menu. Like carrots, dates, green leafy veg, milk, fruits of all seasonal. If you take ptoper homeo t/t under guidance of an expert, it vl b fine. Take ferrum phos 6x daily 5 tabs twice a day n also, take 5 phos syrup r tabs 4-4 daily.

Mr. Lybrate-user, there is no special method or treatment to come out of that addiction. You have to just stop using it. It will be tough for some nights to get sleep. Looking at your height and weight it is clear that you have grade 3 obesity. It is better if you exercise regularly over 1 hour a day, that physical strain will make you tired and possibly quality of sleep will improve even without any drug. Thanks.

My wife has hoarseness in voice. And very near I found a small bulge in her neck. My mother-in-law while carrying had an operation for thyroid nodule. She does have any breathing trouble nor any difficulty in swallowing. There was some irregular periods over the last 2 months otherwise she is fine. So could my wife be having the same thyroid nodule which her mother had? Should I be concerned and consult with any particular doctor?

Hello sir, Please tell me Symptoms of high and low blood pressure and symptoms of sugar high and low level.
High blood pressure (hypertension): it is silent disease. In some cases it may cause headache. We should measure b.p.of all persons time to time. Low blood pressure (hypotension) it is not a disease. It may due to over use of hypertensive drugs or after surgery .chakkar aana may be main symptom. High blood sugar = polyphagia, polydipsia ,polyuria and weakness weight of loss. Low blood sugar = chakkar aana and unconciousness.

Hey. Well if the patient is diabetic and he is having gangrene in his leg, then there is less chance that he would be benefited by using intravenous antibiotics and regular dressings. Mostly, an amputation is done, so that the infection does not spread to other parts of leg. If you are having this problem, then please visit a surgeon near you, so that he can do the needful at the earliest. Please do not ignore this. I hope you understand. Take good care.

Thank you for the query. Prior to starting your medication (stamlo 2.5 mg) your bp was 150/90 mm of hg. The present control of bp is probably due to your medication. If you stop it there may be a sudden shoot up. It is important to reduce your oral salt intake. Please consult your physician before taking any decision to stop the drug. Even if the medicine is stopped, your bp must be monitored to look for any rise. Regards.

diabetes cannot be cured ..it can only be controlled...take medicines regularly and follow following tips: Following are the tips to prevent onset/or control diabetes 1-Losing Extra Weight:-The most significant thing which can make a big difference to your health is to lose your extra weight. This will not only lower your blood pressure but also helps lowering your cholesterol too. For woman: waist of 80 cm or more & for man: waist of 90 cm or more are at risk 2- Constant and regular food timings :-the timings at which you have your meals should be set fixed and at regular intervals each day. This will considerably improve your metabolic activity and helps reducing your weight. 3- Split your meals and eating in moderate amount:-Splitting your meals into 3-4 times per day (including snacks)and eating in fair and consistent amount , improves your metabolic rate as the food u take is not concentrated at one time. 4- No long Gaps and skipping of meals:-There should be no long gaps between meals. Never miss out breakfast. 5- No overeating:-Never eat in a bulk on one time .Try to have moderate amount of food each time u eat. It will help maintain your blood sugar at a healthy level and won’t let it to fluctuate. Remember to eat your food slowly, chew well. 6- Proper Exercise and work outs:-Exercise is very important and a fast way to trim down calories, extra weight and controlling glucose level. Brisk walking for 30 min. atleast five times a week is the best and easiest way of exercising. You can also try Cycling, swimming, dancing. Timings for exercise should be fixed and regular. Avoid heavy exercise. Do not eat right away after a workout . 7-constant and regular timings for medication 8-Avoid fried foods and meat: Limit fats and sweets. Rather choose a variety of foods including whole grains, fresh vegetables, salads, fruits, low fat dairy products. 9- Take high-fibre and complex carbohydrates:-like oats as they are easily broken down to basic sugars. Add whole grain foods in your diet. Avoid carbohydrates like white bread, pasta, pizza , candies, and snacks .Instead include high-fiber carbohydrates like wheat bran, flaxseed and methi seeds to your wheat flour. This will increase fibre in your diet. 10-Drink enough fluids:-Keep your body well hydrated. Drink a lot of water that will help flush the toxins off your system. 11.Fresh vegetables and fruits:- gives essential benefits as these contain a lot of vital minerals as well as nutrients .Include sprouts in the diet as they are easily digestible and a rich source of nutrients. 12- Avoid excess salt:-in form of pickles/papads etc. 1 tsp(5 gm)is sufficient for a healthy hypertensive individual. 13-Avoid alcohol consumption:-Alcohols such as beer and wine contains large amount of calories. choose sugar-free drink. 14- dairy products :-Dairy products are high on fat content such as cheese, curd, milk etc. So instead consume skimmed milk products , low fat cheese, yogurt (curd) etc. Do not have more than two cups of tea or coffee every day. Try green tea instead.
