Is your diabetes under control? If not, get that controlled. Your burning feet may be due to diabetic neuropathy, which effects the nerves of the feet first. Apart from good diabetes control, there are medicine which are quite useful for treating diabetic neuropathy. You should consult your physician.

I am a diabetes patient. My PP is 410. I am suffering from cough and cold. Can anybody suggest a medicine for me.
Mr. Lybrate-user, your cough can be easily managed with some specific antibiotics and cough syrup, but most important is to control diabetes effectively, because 410 mg blood glucose is one of the main reasons for inviting infections and aggravating those. Plus at such a young age it absolutely essential for you achieve a very strict glucose control. Fasting should be around 100 mg and pp 150 to 160 mg/100 ml. Hba1c%<6.8. So please take care of that. It may be necessary to upgrade current treatment, with some additional drugs. It will be good if you come with all the details as mentioned above plus dietary pattern and extent of daily exercise. Thanks.

My wife, 50 yrs having thyroid for the past 15 yrs. This blood test taken on 05-11-2015. The results are as follows. Free t3 = 3.52 pg/ml, free t4 = 2.14 ng/dl, tsh 3rd generation (hs tsh) = less than 0.005 miu/ml. Based on these results doctors advise her to reduce tab. Eltroxin to 150 microgram. But while taking for 10 days or so, the face and chest started swelling and even unable to wear the blouse. But on increasing to 200 microgram, the swelling disappeared. But doctors are threatening that organs will fail, if she takes more eltroxin than required. Please help to reduce the swelling and medicine intake. Intake of less than 200 microgram, even 175 microgram gives her the above problem.what is needed to be done?

Hello! diabetes can not be cured but can be well managed by a good diet chart. Ake small meals in every 3-4 hr. Regular interval. Avoid sweet n sugar also honey n jaggery, fried foods, ready to eat foods, preserved foods n simple carb like maida. Take whole grain cereals in limitation, lot of veggies, 150-200gm fruit (not juice. Go for a dietitian. Don't skip breakfast n take a small portion of milk or product or any whole grain cereal before bed time. Do 30min of exercise a day. It will help you for managing fasting sugar level.

Dear Sir,
I am suffering from Diabetes from last 5-6 years, but about 3-4 months I feeling very weakness, nervousness.
Jamun is a very good ayurvedic source to keep diabetes in check and so is methi dana and bitter gourd. 1. Mix ½ tsp Turmeric Powder + 1 tsp Amla Powder + ½ tbsp Methi Seeds Powder in half glass of water and take daily in the morning on empty stomach. You can also grow methi sprouts and eat them. 2. Remove the skin and seeds of 4-5 bitter gourds. Crush them to a make a paste. Press this paste on a sieve an extract the juice. Drink this juice on an empty stomach every morning. 3. Boil 1 L of water. Let it simmer for 20 min on low flame. While simmering, add 3 tsp of cinnamon powder. Strain the mixture. Drink entire amount of this water everyday. 4. Take a tablespoon of jamun powder everyday.

Thanks for the question in our country tuberculosis is a common cause for pericardial effusion. As per the reports that you have provided your father's pericardiocentesis was done and fluid analysis was suggestive of tuberculosis (with high ada). The treatment he has been put on is fine. Presently, he is on rcinex and benadon, hence I presume that his initial intensive phase of anti-tubercular drugs is over. The management duration is usually 6-9 months in respondent cases. You can get a check xray chest done to note for the current status. I would advise you to continue with your present doctor since the treatment provided is as per guidelines of management. Regards.

Your bmi is 31.54 kg/m2 showing grade 1 obesity. I am not aware what all the measures you have done to reduce weight. Please give details of thyroid test report, let me see that. Secondly your diet has to be based on (for caloric value) on ideal body weight that is 60 kgs, since you want to cut weight your total intake has to be very well regulated. That means daily calories should be restricted to a maximum of 1200 to 1300 kcal/day. Plus you will have to exercise for at least 1 hour. Brisk walking, aerobic exercise, jogging, skipping and swimming are to be undertaken. This has to continue for at least over a period of 3 to 4 years with same intensity. You should aim at a reduction of 5 to 8 % of present weight, initially.

Ayurvedic medicines together with allopathic medicines can sometimes cause drug interactions. Hence allopathic doctors usually do not know about the content of ayurvedic medicines, it will be very difficult to find out what kind of interactions are there. It could be very harmful for the body. It is better you stick to one of them.

Press your finger on the shin of your leg on the swelling for about 15 seconds. If there is a pit formation after you lift your finger, it is pitting oedema due to fluid collection. As you have already got your kft, lft done and these are normal, your salt intake may be more which may need restriction. Further if your serum proteins and hemoglobin levels are not checked, do it as hypopriteinaemia and anaemia are also a cause of body swelling. You may also need to check your cortisol levelif needed.
