I am suffering from Erection problem. And if it happens sometime diffuse quickly. I want to come out of this problem as soon as possible. Also I am diabetic.

CDIABT, MBBS
Endocrinologist, Mumbai
For diabetes follow a diet low in carbohydrate, low in fat and high in fibre. Avoid bakery products. Avoid too much rice and potato. Avoid fried stuff. Avoid chocolate, cakes, ice cream, soft drinks and fruit juices. Eat lots of vegetables. Walk for at least 30 minutes a day for 5 days in a week. Medicine and insulin will work better if you follow diet and exercise.You should keep your blood sugar under control to improve your ejection problem

Dear sir, I am happy you are concerned about the neuropathy. With determination and physiotherapy you can overcome most of the symptoms. Please visit a neurologist for advice regarding you neuropathy. A diabetologist will also help you to have optimum control of your sugars. The neuropathy is of no consequence to normal life. Just live life to the fullest. Happy to be of assistance, yours truly, Dr. Benedict.

Hello, controlling of hypothyroidism in turn tsh levels is very important. For conception to occur and pregnancy to be successfully completed tsh has to below 3 milli units. Recommended levels are 1st trimester 0.1 to 2 milli units. 2nd trimester 0.3 to 3 milli units & 3rd trimester 0.3 to 3.5 milli units/l. Even for conception to occur levels have to be below 2 millii units/l. The fluctuations have to be avoided. If you have any doubts please come in a conversation with latest thyroid test details, then I will be able to guide better. Thanks.

I am 62 years old my fasting blood sugar 120 post lunch 180 I am using melmet s/r 1000mg half morning half ager noon and 1000mg night is it correct dose? I am cabg please reply.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
You take 1000 mg both times and add glimi 1 mg in the morning and inform privately. Watch for hypoglycemia and carry some sugar /glucose in case of hypoglycemia. It is not as easy task to control blood sugar in the desired normal range. Whatever we eat is metabolised to sugar in the body to provide energy for our daily activities. For the absolute control, one has to monitor his / her blood sugar at regular intervals (self-monitoring of blood glucose? smbg). Though difficult, this can be done by a glucometer and keep a record. Get an idea of fasting sugar (fbs) and 2 hours after food (ppbs) and check before dinner and after every major food. The basic idea is to reduce the food intake to 1/3 of what you take now. The dictum of sugar control is diet, exercise, diet + medicine and at later stage medicine+ insulin will be needed. For sugar control there is the need for regular advice and follow up. Just one time consultation or advice is not enough to guide a diabetic in scientifically & medically correct manner. For giving you regular follow up you ask me privately with all details like your daily eating pattern and medicines you take.

I have Thyroid from last 3 years & my weight is going up. M taking thyroid tab 100 power. Please help with proper Diet & please tell me the tablet which I am taking is effective or not? If not then help me with the permanent cure medicine & diet.

BHMS
Homeopath, Ahmedabad
Hello lybrate-user, the tablet you are taking which takes care of thyroxin hormone for your body but thyroid gland is not performing. It has been seen that though the blood report shows normal but patient feels the same symptoms. Your weight is going up it means you still need to control your thyroid dysfunction and I think homeopathic treatment helps in such cases as thyroiditis is an auto-immune disorder and homeopathy works wonderfully. You will get permanant cure as we have done it with homeopathy. Please feel free to approach for further details.

Because I have a type1 diabetes on insulin since 21years. And my sugar level are getting more less about fbs 20-30 I had decreased my night dose of insulin to 10u. If hypoglycemic condition occurs continuously is it effect for my mental ill.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Hi, in t1 diabetes, unless blood sugar is properly monitored and insulin dosage is correctly adjusted, hypoglycemic episodes can occur. You may talk to your physician and see how effectively sugar levels are maintained. This is not a situation which can be addressed by online consultation. It needs a close monitoring between you and your physician. Also you may think of using insulins like glargine or degludec which are peakless.

Are there any long-term effects associated with taking ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder) medications? If so, what are they and what medications are implicated? What exactly is a spine block injection? Will it work long-term for low back pain due to disc problems? What causes Hashimoto's thyroiditis, and what is the best method of treatment? Can iodine help this condition?

BHMS
Homeopath, Sindhudurg
A spine block or an epidural injection usually does not give good result or long standing relief in discogenic low back ache. Moreover we need to look at the type of disc prolapse n accordingly there are multiple treatments. Yes adhd medicine have side effects.. Hashimoto thyroiditis or chronic lymphocytic thyroiditis is an autoimmune disease in which the thyroid gland is attacked by a variety of cell- and antibody-mediated immune processes, causing primary hypothyroidism.

MBBS

A) diabetes is a pancreatic disease which happens because of damage to beta cells and hence according to me stem cell treatment will not cure diabetes b) sugar plant leaves do not contain sugar and hence it can be used in your diet.

Green tea has health benefits. It is thermogenic so helps in fat loss and is an antioxidant so helps the body nourish with phytonutrients and helps enhance performance. Green tea can be taken with breakfast, mid meals and even after meals. So you can have at least 2 cups of green tea every day. But with that you also have to eat clean and exercise well to see health benefits and lose body fats.
