Mr. Lybrate-user, some times if blood sugar is not well controlled, one may get a problem called gastroparesis, where there may be repeated nausea and vomiting, hearburn, early fullness. First and foremost is to have excellent blood sugar control - fasting around 100 mg, pp 150 to 160 mg, hba1c%<6.8. Better to shift to insulin if sugar control is not properly achieved. Plus take small quantity of meals more number of times (6 meals a day), with total intake being well controlled.

Menstrual period is a state of physical stress. The symptom gets pronounced during this phase. Usually before, during and after periods it is been observed that women complaints of mood swings, skin rash, gastric upsets etc. Women are more prone to these complaints if she has a positive family history. But we need a detailed case history for prescribing an appropriate homoeopathic medicine. As far as diabetes is concerned, it is a metabolic disorder which results in increased blood sugar level due to relative or absolute deficiency of insulin. It is more common in those individuals who have a family history of diabetes. We would require certain details to understand the extent and severity of your problem.

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.

Artificial sweeteners are a group of chemicls each having a different problem. nut the bottom line is this that they are chemicals. Now a days natural sugar by itself is being considered as poison. Any thing in excess is not good. if you are a diabetic you should count your calories. More cups of tea means notonly more sugar but more calories.

Hi, Type-2 Diabetes is a lifestyle related problem, so making a few lifestyle changes can lower the chances of developing type 2 diabetes. -Excess weight is the single most important cause of type 2 diabetes, so control or reduce your weight if you are overweight! -Avoid sedentary lifestyle and start get moving. Brisk walking for a half hour every day reduces the risk of developing type 2 diabetes. -Modify your diet: *Choose whole grains and whole grain products over highly processed carbohydrates. The bran and fiber in whole grains make it more difficult for digestive enzymes to break down the starches into glucose. *Avoid sugary beverages which have a high glycemic load, and drinking more of this sugary stuff is associated with increased risk of diabetes. *Choose good fats instead of bad fats. Good fats found in liquid vegetable oils, nuts, and seeds. Trans fats or bad fats are found in many margarines, packaged baked goods, fried foods, fast or junk foods. *Limit intake of red meat and processed meats. Nuts, seeds, beans, tofu, or poultry are much more healthful protein choices. -Quit smoking. -Moderate alcohol consumption decreases the risk of type 2 diabetes. -Avoid taking unnecessary stress or tension! And keep an optimistic attitude in life! Medication: Take homoeopathic SBL’s Diaboherb medicine/ 3 times a day daily. Home Remedies: Dry the leaves of mango tree and grind to a powder. Mix 1 teaspoon dry powder in a glass of water and drink it daily to reduce high blood sugar levels. Take 2 teaspoons of bitter gourd (karela) juice once a day. One can also increase its use as a cooked vegetable. Take 1 teaspoon of Indian gooseberry (amla) juice mixed with 1 teaspoon of bitter gourd juice twice a day.

You have very good sugar control as suggested by values provided by you. Please check hba1c level also. Looking at your profile, you seems to be overweight. So before lowering the dosage, you should first try to lose your weight, which may be helpful in long term to reduce your medications.

Sorry to learn that you became a diabetic in spite of your healthy lifestyle. In most people, diabetes occurs as a combination of hereditary factors, life style, diet & over weight. There's nothing you can do about heredity, right? Thus, in spite of a healthy life style, your genes got you diabetes! Unfortunately, diabetes is NOT permanently curable. If you diabetologist's medicines, your lifestyle & diet have got your sugars well controlled, please continue. In the meanwhile, get evaluated for problems involving your eyes, heart, kidneys & feet. Please do NOT go for so-called herbal medicines sold thru TV shows.
