Mr. lybrate-user, Increasing he dose does not affect kidneys. But if blood glucose is not well controlled then high glucose in blood does affect kidney function. So it is essential to maintain near normal glucose level. Thanks.

I want leave sugar permanently. What will be the effect to body. Is there any loss to my body for leaving sugar?

Mr Ramandeep Singh, Sugar is Sucrose which is made up of one molecule of glucose and one of fructose (fruit sugar). This is a carbohydrate. Leaving sugar totally means you will not be consuming only sucrose. However, all the foods that we consume like wheat, jowar, rice, bajra and other millets, pulses, fruits, nuts (most of them) and potato, sweet potato, beet root etc all contain STARCH, which is converted to either maltose, then to 2 molecules of glucose. Similarly milk and milk products contain Lactose, which is also converted to Glucose and galactose. So by stopping taking sugar one can not stop getting glucose. Glucose is an essential energy giving fuel to all the ceelular and metabolic activity in the body. Plus our brain uses only glucose for energy. So it is essential. You can stop eating sugar, that will reduce your glucose intake marginally.

Mr. Lybrate-user, it is best to avoid sugar totally for a diabetes patient. Taking sugar substitutes also in not good. Recent studies have shown that all the sugar substitutes are unsafe. They increase craving for sugar, plus also have side effects of their own. So it is always good to avoid them totally.

I understand that there is some hesitation for medication. Try 1g cinnamon every day and 2 tsp methi along with breakfast and lunch. Take only salad at night no other food. Walk 45 min covering 4 km. Chances of your blood glucose levels is there.

Nagamaji, Diabetes mellitus is a disease occurring due to deficiency of insulin or resistance to the action of insulin or both. If a person has been diagnosed to have diabetes, then treatment is a must. Only diet control and exercise are not going to be helpful. In fact drug plus diet and exercise are necessary. A person with diabetes should avoid sweets, direct sugar and jaggery, deep fried foods, junk foods and pastries. Also avoid red meat and egg yolk. Should consume more of green leafy vegetables, salads, permitted fruits (100 g a day). Always use whole grain flour avoid refined foods. Caloric intake should be based on Ideal Body Weight, sugar levels and extent of daily physical exercise. For preventing back ache there are specific exercises for back muscles including some stretching routines or asanas, which should be practiced. Knee pain if it is due to osteoarthritis better to consult an orthopedician.

Hi, it is clear that your diabetes is totally uncontrolled. Well controlled diabetes should have fasting blood glucose near 100 mg, pp 150 to 160 mg/100 ml & hba1c% <7. Looking at your information treatment needs to be properly adjusted so that blood glucose is brought to desired level.

Which medicine I use for uric acid. My mom uric acid is 5.5 normal is 5.0 so what I do.
Increased Uric acid in blood is usually due to metabolic disorder, especially in protein. There are lot of medicines for decreasing the level of Uric acid in blood from Homoeopathy. Apart from such treatment, your constitutional medicine will do good as to correct it. And foods that are complex protein and meat should be avoided. Naturally all berry fruits are good for decreasing uric acid in blood. E.g - strawberry, mulberry. Etc.

At our company, we do have several clients come in with a thyroid disorder which we successfully rectify with lifestyle intervention and behavioral modification.
