Mr. lybrate-user, The particular tablet which is being advertised heavily in TV, is just a combination of some herbal remedies, based on encient ayurvedic texts. There is very little scientific evidence to support. Unless a patient is on modern medicine to treat diabetes or to control blood glucose, there is no way to control it. The medicine mentioned by you can be at best can be taken as a supportive therapy. I have absolutely no belief on the various claims made. Thanks.

I am 18 years old and my belly is growing very fastly now a days. I can't able to diet because of my low hemoglobin count and I am thyroid patient. If I start dieting, I start feeling very weakness and can't able to do things properly and get tired very early. Please suggest me some healthy and helpful tips.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
taking a planned diet that provides necessary calories is not going to give any weakness. To correct low hemoglobin level, there are iron and vitamin combinations available. Looking at your bmi (22.79 kg/m2), is fairly normal. I suggest, start some specific abdominal exercises which help in tightening abdominal muscle and also may help fat reduction. Plus your tsh levels should be between 3 to 4 mi u/ml then only all other efforts will be helpful.

I am 46 old Male guy working as Engineer. Recently I did blood test due to the numbness in foot bottom. With fasting my sugar was 130 and after fast break it was 180. I am a pure vegetarian, no hobbits like Cigarette, alcohol etc. Even my hereditary no body was diabetic. I know to improve my diet and lifestyle. Apart from it, I wish to know which ayurvedic (home made or readily available in market as medicine) to be used to improve my insulin and bring back my sugar level to below normal. Do the needful With Regards

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology

Mr. Lybrate-user, fasting above 126 mg is diagnostic of diabetes. Similarly after food >200 mg. Your pp level is less than 200 mg. So better get hba1c% checked, if that is above 6.5%, then diabetes confirmed. If diabetes is confirmed, then there is no other option than taking appropriate anti diabetes medicine, to control blood sugar level. Unfortunately there are no home remedies or other treatments available to treat diabetes. Lifestyle changes will also be needed. You will have to stop taking sweets, avoid deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries and other bakery items like white bread, no sweetened aerated drinks, avoid fructose corn syrup containing products, highly processed food products. Consume more of green leafy vegetables, salads and permitted fruits. Avoid alcohol and smoking totally. T2 diabetes does have familial spread, but can come without that too. Over weight and inactivity and junk food are main contributors. Thanks.

safe from thyroid point of view as it is known and treated. But not safe as your weight is high and it is likely to cause problems like high BP and diabetes during pregnancy.

My Mom got sugar and thyroid for last two months. Please suggest me some diet chart.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Mr. Lybrate-user, diet has to be very specific for each patient. To suggest that one needs to know height, weight, fasting & pp blood glucose levels, present treatment with dosage, present dietary pattern and extent of daily exercise. With out these details diet can not be prescribed or suggested. However, she should avoid sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries, white bread, other bakery items, sweetened aerated drinks and fructose corn syrup containing products. She should consume more of green leafy vegetables, permitted fruits (about 100 g a day). She should use whole grain flour for chapati and roti. Because of hypothyroidism she should avoid taking soy beans, soy containing products, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, radish, peanuts, mustard and coffee. Thanks.

I am 23 year old female suffering from hypothyroidism. These days my my belly became too large and also facing stomach problem like to go for washroom 4 to 5 times and feeling heavy stomach after taking food. And I am taking my medicine regularly in empty stomach. What to do to reduce it ?

MBBS, MD Obs & Gynae, FNB Reproductive Medicine

if thyroid levels are normal after treatment weight gain is usually not because of it. may be due to lack of exercise and faulty diet habits. going to washroom again and again is a sign of urine infection for which u need tests of urine and treatment.

Hello. I am 40 years old women from the last 5 year I got a sugar and bp I am taking medicine frm last 4 year but now my bp is getting down every day and my sugar level also increase at450 to normal my sugar and bp tell me something plz.

BHMS
Homeopath,
Dear lybrate user, you should immediately stop the medication for blood pressure. Regarding your problem of diabetes I fear that you may have become insulin dependant diabetic patient. In that case you should go for insulin injection. However, you could try homoeopathic uranium nit q, 30 drops, thrice daily, after meals, in a cup of water for one month. Check your blood sugar level after one month of medication. If you do not observe any decrease in your blood sugar level then you should go for insulin injection.

We are in one year relationship bt we have no child. Dctr says my husband"s sone problems his seminal test is negative means report is no sperm.So please say what are we doning?

Even if no sperm, we can give treatment. "No sperm" is not a rare disease and many men with such condition has fathered a baby. Sometimes, actually he is producing sperms but these are not coming in semen. SO, ask your husband to consult a doctor along with you. And don't allow him to get upset. Hope is always there. All the best.

6 Best Home Remedies To Treat Diabetes!

6 Best Home Remedies To Treat Diabetes!

Diabetes is a chronic metabolic disorder that results in higher level of blood sugar in the body. It is assuming epidemic proportions and India has become the new diabetic capital with more than 50 million diabetic people. The main problem with diabetes is that it does not completely go away and there is a whole myriad of issues that it brings along with it. Heart attack, stroke, eyesight problems, delayed wound healing, nerve damage and impotence. Therefore, diabetes and by that we mainly mean blood sugar level has to be managed so that there is a delay in onset of the associated conditions and/or reduced in severity.

Ayurveda refers to diabetes as Prameha (excessive urination) and Madhumeha (sugary urine) and has identified close to 20 forms of the disease. According to Ayurvedic belief, each disease is caused due to imbalance in kapha, pitta, and vata doshas and diabetes is caused by all these, predominantly by kapha. With any stream of medicine, management of diabetes involves two tracks – one is lifestyle changes and the second is medications.

Lifestyle changes include the following:

  1. Diet: Reduce the amount of rice, sugar, potato, sweet fruits, maida, deep fried foods, and red meat. Protein-rich foods like lentils, soya, green leafy vegetables and fish should be increased. Diet plan should change to small, frequent meals instead of binge eating.

  2. Exercise: Include 30 minutes of regular exercise into your daily routine if you have a diabetic predisposition.

  3. Others: Avoid smoking and alcohol, ensure sufficient sleep, avoid sleeping during day time, improved foot and eye care, periodically check sugar levels and manage stress levels.

Medication

Ayurveda has a whole lot of home remedies which have proven to be very effective against diabetes:

  1. Jambhul: Eugenia Jambolana whether eaten raw or juice extract has been shown to have beneficial effects in managing sugar levels and cholesterol.
  2. Gymnema sylvestre: Used to manage diabetes for over 2000 years, it reduces sugar cravings and is being touted as the future for diabetes treatment.

  3. Bitter gourd (Momordica charantia): It has 3 components that give it strong antidiabetic properties. The charantin reduces blood sugar levels; the polypeptide has insulin-like effects; and lectin that again has hypoglycemic effects.

  4. Bel (Aegle marmelos): Also known as wood apple, leaves of the plant are shown to have antidiabetic properties. 5 to 10 leaves can be chewed on a daily basis to help control blood sugar levels.

  5. Fenugreek (Trigonella foenum graecum): Consuming 10 g of fenugreek seeds soaked in water increases the amount of insulin produced, thereby increasing sugar breakdown.

  6. Neem: Chewing about 4 to 5 leaves in the morning on an empty stomach helps to control blood sugar levels. Alternately, neem leaves powder is available which can be dissolved in water and consumed.

My friend has diabetes and is feeling very sick nowadays I am really afraid of his health. I just want to ask if I could get any solution over his problem?

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Mr. Lybrate-user, your friend may be having t1 diabetes, which needs insulin injections as treatment, as in t1 dm there is no insulin produced by beta cells of pancreas. So if starts taking that plus proper diet control and some physical exercise, he should be able to improve the health. But treatment is for lifetime.

Sir / Madam, My brother 56 years, He is a diabetic and under guidance and supervision of Dr. Dinesh Neopane, MBBS, MD at Biratnagar (Nepal. However, from past one and half year it is observed that his hemoglobin count gets reduced drastically in short span of time. This issue though has been addressed but we would like to get an expert opinion for better solution. At earlier stage doctor did assumed that it could be due to piles problem and with few units of blood transfusion patient was better. This result though was short lived and after five months again blood transfusion was done. On the recommendation of consulting doctor we met Nephrologist and his views were in sync with family doctor and advice was to continue the same medicine. Later, the patients started feeling week and under consultation of the doctor an injection EPOFIT (erythropoietin) was used twice weekly for six weeks. At that period the patient's hemoglobin count was below 6. Currently report shows that prescribed injection is working fine and patients has show improvement but we family members would like to take an expert review at your recommendation or reference is required as which doctor would be seeking appointment with. Looking forward for your early reply.

What are the results of kidney function test means urea and creatinine. You know erythropoietn is prepared by kidney and in kidney failure this substance deficit. So we have to give from outside. You can discuss further on line.

What is the reason for increase in blood sugar to 400? My father never had sugar problem. He is 69 now.

BHMS
Homeopath,
Dear Mr. Lybrate-user, diabetes has various causes. Those may be hereditary inheritance, loss of exercise, too much mental pressure etc. But as you have stated that your blood sugar level is 400, you should be worried more about decreasing it than investigating its cause. Give your father homoeopathic uranium nit 3x tablets (r. S. Bhargava company). Give 1 tablet, thrice daily, in empty stomach.

My father is 58 years old now, has sugar also but in control 105 before lunch and 130 after lunch. He don't take his meal properly means in adequate manner. He has also pain in his right shoulder patella, he was fallen down while walking because increase in speed. May I know how to tackle this.

MD - General Medicine, Diploma in Diabetology
General Physician,
In diabetes, with the progression of disease, diabetic neuropathy will develop which will manifest as pain, burning sensation in different part of the body mainly in hands and feet. In your father case there is history of fall so it may be due to fall but fall while walking can be due to diabetic neuropathy. Your father needs to follow a life style which is recommended for people with diabetes like proper meals having more of fiber. No sugar. Regular exercise. Regular follow up with doctor. Diabetes damages health silently in the beginning.
