To keep asthma at bay, steroids are required and steroids increases sugar. Avoid oral steroids and have steroid based inhalers do brisk walking for 45 min daily for atleast 5 days a week it will help both in asthma and diabetes.

try to eat foods that take longer to absorb, like whole grains, fibre rich foods. Avoid simple foods like watermelon, kharbooza etc. which give quick energy rush. During breastfeeding the body sugar goes low so it is natural to feel hungry faster

Eating too much sugar could be the one of causes for diabetes? Should I stop eating sweets? There are lots of rumors I don't know what is true but what I heard is that" the person who has diabetes shouldn't eat sugar but eating too much sugar has nothing to do with diabetes" what is true?

Hi, Both the statements are true. A diabetic person should avoid sweets and sugar, as they will easily be absorbed and will instant rise the blood sugar levels. For a normal person: Too much of sugar will also be absorbed easily by the body, the excess sugar in the body will be converted to fats and stored in the body leading to weight gain. Weight gain is one of the major reason for diabetes. Hence limit your sugars. Regards,

My wife is diebetic since 40 years, bp/sugar is under controle. But she has too much pain and swelling in both knees. She walks within the house only. Knees can not be replaced as she has multiple blocks & heart does not permit that.

It depends on d set up. In our set up I have replaced both knee with multiple valvular cardiac disease n also in patients wit optd for bypass surgery also. Think positive . If she will not walk. Then cardiac function will also compromised. Even newer drugs n anesthesia permits any high risk pt. Optd comfortably.

Mr. Lybrate-user, lemon water is fine, can be taken by a person with diabetes. Adding sugar free powder is also fine. But what is worrying is her blood glucose level of 300 mg, which is definitely very high. When diabetes is in control fbs should be closer to 100 mg, ppbs- 170 to 180 mg & hba1c% <7. So please see that her glucose levels are brought to necessary ones. Thanks.

Cupping therapy in High blood pressure

MD (U), Bachelor of Unani Medicine and Surgery (B.U.M.S)
Unani Specialist, Delhi
Cupping therapy in High blood pressure
Hypertension is very common, that needs a lifelong management once diagnosed. All adults should know their blood pressure; regular monitoring can reduce the risk of having heart disease, stroke, kidney failure and blood vessel problems. Though anti-hypertensive medications and lifestyle changes are effective to bring down the blood pressure, some natural remedies help control the blood pressure more efficiently.
Cupping is an ancient treatment remedy that has been used for many centuries in many parts of the world for high blood pressure (hypertension) treatment. In the middle east, wet cupping" hijama" is still a popular treatment. Wet cupping is the process of using a vacuum at different points on the body in order to gather the blood in that area. Then apply few superficial incisions (small, light scratches using a razor) on those areas, followed by repeating the vacuum on the same areas in order to remove'harmful' blood which lies just beneath the surface of the skin.

Hi. You have described your case very well, thank you for that. As you have mentioned, your hba1c was very well controlled at 6.7 last year. You need to check in again now. If it again shows that your diabetes is very well controlled, then there is no such need of changing a very well suited insulin regiment and experiment with a newer one. Thank you. Take care.
