lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. For treating diabetes some times multiple drugs have to be used, because blood glucose control is not adequate just one or two drugs. Hence there is no worry, if more drugs are added in the treatment. It is importannt to bring fasting glucose < 100 mg, PP 160 to 180 mg & HbA1c% <7. Thanks.

Each date has 20 calories. Dates have low Glycemic Index hence they can be taken by a diabetic person. Upto 5 per day should be okay. They have good fiber hence will help in digestion.

Usually diabetes medicines don't result in change in urine colour. However, if you are taking vitamins, then it is possible. Please start drinking extra water. If it persists, please check a urine routine.

If your sugars are rising to 250, you are probably diabetic patient .... unless your glucometer was faulty. Please do a fasting and post prandial(PP) blood sugar in the lab along with HbA1c to determine the extent of diabetes.

Banana has so many health benefits even d peel than why is it nt good fr a diabetic I love bananas n I am a diabetic.
Lybrate-user, no one denies the benefits offered by banana. But it get converted to blood glucose very rapidly, therefore raises blood glucose level. If some one eats more bananas every day then hyperglycemia can occur, making it difficult to control diabetes. Hyperglycemia put a load on insulin action. For a diabetic person a small banana eaten once a while may be allowed. But regular usage is not god. It like eating sugar. In diabetes it is always said that eat complex carbohydrates meaning those present in whole grains, unpolished grains and whole grain ata (flour). The reason is starch present is these is converted to glucose after a considerable enzymatic action. Hence glucose level rises slowly. Thanks.

Having diabetes makes high blood pressure and other heart and circulation problems more likely, because diabetes damages arteries and makes them targets for hardening (atherosclerosis). Atherosclerosis can cause high blood pressure, which if not treated, can lead to blood vessel damage, stroke, heart failure, heart attack, or kidney failure. You can consult me in private for detailed treatment which is available in biochemic system of medicine depending upon symptomatically.

For a diabetic it is best advised to have a diet planned as per the sugar levels, lifestyle and history. Though you can follow some guidelines - have small frequent meals. Do not fast for long hours. Avoid a very heavy meal at one time. Avoid fruit juices, aerated drinks or sugarcane juice, honey, jaggery or sugar. Avoid junk foods. Exercise and stay active. Do not attempt to try out too many remedies as you could go into hypoglycaemia. Sleep well. It's all a matter of discipline.

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.

Dear . There s nothing to worry. Just keep a close watch. Include daily exercise of at least half hour in your schedule. Keep check of body weight. Avoid sugar/sweet intake in excesses. Drink plenty of fluids and get your hba1c repeated after 3 months and fasting. Pp sugar after a week. Just let me know the reports. At this time nothing more than this required. One additional drug could be added but only after a repeat b. Sugar f/ pp report.

What are the symptoms of diabetes? Can sidha medical can used for diabetes patient?

BHMS
Homeopath,
What are the symptoms of diabetes? Can sidha medical can used for diabetes patient?
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.

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.
