Hello- follow these points for blood sugar control- a) avoid day sleep. B) avoid over eating, non-vegetarian diet, rice, potato and dairy products. C) take evening meals before 7 pm. D) walk at least 100 yards or sit in vajrasana position after meals. E) go for morning walk or kapal bhati pranayam early morning. F) physical exertion and increase sweating will help in diabetes. G) avoid small meals like break fast and supper, instead go for two heavy meals. H) amla, turmeric and shilajeet are beneficial in diabetes control and to reduce diabetic complications. No pork is not safe as it contains eggs of worms which can develop worm infestation in your brain and thus causing epilepsy (cystisarcosis).

Hello, Its always better to avoid, but if at all it should not go beyond 2 drinks per week...thats max.. Diabetes is all about metabolic problems and alcohol further slows down metabolism. Which is surely for good for the glucose uptake.

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.
