You are feeling low probably because of high blood sugar and maybe heat exhaustion. Your fasting needs to be atleast under 130 and pp less than 160.

I am 28 years old and suffering from high sugar, not taking any medication for the same and not following any specific diet as well, what are the consequences and what should I do?

MBBS
Pediatrician, Calicut
You may be suffering from Type 1 Diabetes or MODY(Maturity onset diabetes of Young). I think you are also over weight and may be due to this diabetes. Long standing high blood sugar and its fluctuations is highly dangerous. It can damage your kidney, vision, cause atherosclerosis, non healing ulcers and the list is so long. So you consult a nearby Endocrinologist or a physician and start bringing down your sugar values.

Hello lybrate user once diabetes diagnosed you should restrict sugar in diet. Avoid all deeply fried foods, zunk foods. Eat in moderate chapati, rice, bread, meat, eggs, fish, chiken, cheese, butter and milk products. Avoid sweets, icecreams, chocolates. Eat plenty of salads, green leafy vegetables, fruits except banana n mango. Take clear soups, butter milk, pulses, beans. Take small meals four times a day. Practice aerobic exercises or brisk walk, pranayam and yoga.

I am 74 years. I had long history of uncontrooled diabetes and it is under control with allopathic medication for 2 years. I am unable to slep at night due to tingling in both legs-caugh and thighs. When I have gas due to constipation even during day I have the tingling pain in both legs. I feel comfort when I massage in back of hip at sciatic nerve centre. I need advise how to have naturopathic or alternate medicine cure. I am afraid of neuro surgeons as the medication will spoil my health.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
You apparently have peripheral neuropathy due to diabetes. There are good vitamin tablets which will control your tinging. Obviously naturopathy will not help. Diabetes affects food toe to head all or organs. Read my article in health tips. Take neurobion forte tab 1-0-1 and dulcolax for constipation. 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 assure you a proper guidance. If you keep in touch.

What is sugar, why it occur. What is the best medicine and thing to do. Are it occur in childhood.

BHMS
Homeopath,
What is sugar, why it occur. What is the best medicine and thing to do. Are it occur in childhood.
Dear lybrate user, one of the major nutritional substance required for human body is carbohydrate. We take carbohydrate in the form of rice, wheat, sugar etc. The complex molecules of carbohydrate are broken down into simple glucose molecules during digestion & released in the blood stream to be absorbed by the muscle cells. Muscle cells utilise the glucose molecules to release energy by breaking down those glucose molecules. Insulin hormone plays a vital role in the absorption of the glucose molecules by the muscle cells. In abnormal conditions, either due to less production of insulin or due to resistance to insulin, the process of absorption of glucose by the muscles comes to a stand still. The glucose molecules remains in the bloodstream which results in the increase in the blood sugar level. The failure of utilisation of the glucose molecules by the muscle cells results in production of less energy than normal condition. This is externally manifested as the fatigue & tiredness of the patient. This excess amount of blood sugar compels the kidney to function more than normal level in order to excrete the blood sugar molecules through urine. As a result the patient suffers from frequent urination. This abnormal condition is clinically known as diabetes mellitus. Once a patient is diagnosed with diabetes he has to take regular medicine to keep his blood sugar level within normal limits. Take homoeopathic mother tincture gymnema sylvestra q, 30 drops, thrice daily, after meals, in a cup of water. Also you need to walk at least 1 hour daily without any interval. Also you need to take a low carbohydrate rich diet. Avoid rice, sweet dishes, fruits, cold drinks, fast foods, alcoholic beverages, potato etc.

Mr. Lybrate-user, t2 diabetes when goes on over 10 -15 years does tend to cause a number of long term complications. These tend to occur early if blood glucose control is not good. Persistent high blood glucose damages peripheral nerve endings leading to altered sensation and a patient feels tingling, numbness and burning sensation in the lower limbs, more so in feet. One of the primary requirement is to maintain a strict blood glucose control with fbs closer to 100 mg, pp 160 to 180 mg & hba1c% <7. There are various medicines used to improve this condition like vitamin b12, lipoleic acid, folic acid combinations and drugs like gabapentine and pragabalin. Thanks.

He is 30 years and is suffering from uric acid problem since 1 year. Sometimes his ankle pains. So tell me how to get rid of this and also foods to be avoided and which is beneficial to reduce the acid.

BHMS
Homeopath,
Dear lybrate user, protein is one of the most vital nutritional substances which are required for human body. Almost every high protein diet contains purine. This purine produces uric acid on oxidation. Excess uric acid is accumulated at the joints of human beings as urate salts. This accumulation of urate salts lead to pain & swelling of those affected joints & this condition is clinically known as gout. You should avoid high protein rich diet like mutton, chicken, beef, eggs, sea fish, spinach, garden pea, tomato, lentils etc. Also you need to take homoeopathic mother tincture urtica urens q, 30 drops, thrice daily, after meals, in a cup of water. This medicine will help to dissolve the accumulated excess urate salts from the joints.

Yes worm infestation is a common problem in children. I would suggest the following: 1. Repeat deworming dose every 2-3 weeks for 4-6 courses 2. Personal hygiene measures eg. Daily bathing, clean & soft towel, clean & loose clothes, clean socks (even if shoes are not worn), clean toys as the child has a tendency to put toys in the mouth, brushing of teeth, hand washing / sanitizer use & so on 3. Good nutritious food 4. In view of the itching, massage of the skin in general & area around the anus in particular, with oil / cream of your choice will be helpful 5. Periodic check by your paediatrician for this as well as immunizations and preventive & promotive health is a good idea.
