Dear lybrate user with the limited amount of information provided we assume that as you are a diabetic you are concerned about tooth issues. It could had been better had you provided us with your fasting and hba1c levels for better understanding of your condition. Tooth decay is a common problem in diabetics due to unmanaged sugars and this should be regularly taken care of. Ideally diabetics should get their tooth inspected every 6 months and any infection should be taken care of at the earliest. Good that you are already consulting a dental surgeon and he has advised you wisely, please go ahead as advised by him. Take care that your sugars should be well in control before the procedure. Hope that solves your query. Anything more then please feel free to revert.

You can do a sonography of the abdomen along with kidney, & urinary bladder to find out the cause. If your room is very cold in the night, then also you may need to visit the toilet often.

Go for walk daily . Avoid stress. Some Relax during work. Drink more water, high-carbohydrate foods such as potatoes, rice, pasta and bread. You can take Nutrient-rich foods that improve your health may also benefit your thyroid gland, antioxidant-rich fruits and vegetables more plenty of water: Blueberries, tomatoes, bell peppers, and other foods rich in antioxidants can improve overall health and benefit the thyroid gland. Eating foods high in B vitamins, like whole grains, may also help. Selenium: Tiny amounts of selenium are needed for enzymes that make thyroid hormones to work properly. Eating selenium-rich foods, such as sunflower seeds or Brazil nuts, can be beneficial. Tyrosine: This amino acid is used by the thyroid gland to produce T3 and T4. Taking a supplement may help,

Mr. Lybrate-user, if you have confirmed diabetes then the treatment has to continue for life time. Diabetes can only be controlled, there is no cure. Along with drugs, exercise and diet restriction to control weight is also equally important. Check your hba1c%, it should be maintained around <6.8. Thanks for your question.

Mr. Lybrate-user, your blood glucose level is high particularly pp. But this can be corrected by diet and exercise rather than any new drug addition, if you reduce present intake by about 10 to 15%, consume more of green leafy vegetable and fiber containing product, plus exercise regularly then you can bring down the sugar level closer to the target of fasting 100mg and pp <170 mg.

Piles is unrelated to infertility problems. Piles needs separate attention and consider taking plenty water, laxatives and ointments. Sometimes you may need surgery. Urine discharge may be due to infection and infertility may also be due to infection. For that, you must consult your doctor and get a semen analysis done and then find the cause of the problem. If cause is found, the treatment is easier.

Coconut oil is high in saturated fats. So not to eb used on a regular basis. Instaed an oil combination of mustard oil, sesame seed/rice bran oil is helpful in achieveing the desired fatty acid ratio. 1. Have small frequent meals at 2-3 hrs interval instead of 3-4 large meals only 2. Drink 2-3 litres water daily 3. Avoid table salt, junk, fried, processed, preserved, sugary foods & drinks, alcohol. 4. Replace simple carbs (sugar, jaggery, honey, maida, sago, cornflour, arrowroot flour, potato, biscuit, cake, white rice, white bread) with complex carbs (whole fruits, vegetables, salads, whole grains-atta, dalia, suji, oats, millets, barley, brown rice, atta bread, quinoa, whole legumes-sprouts, soyabean, pseudo cereals-rajgira, makhana, & nuts, oilseeds). 5. Avoid skipping meals 6. Have early & light dinner. 7. Sleep & wake up early. Have a sound sleep 8. Brisk walk daily for 1 hr. 9. Walk/ cycle instead of taking transport, take stairs instead of lift/ escalator. 10. Cut down on total oil consumption. 11. Avoid sleeping in afternoon 12. Take 15 mins light walk post main meals. Avoid sitting for an hr at a stretch continuously. 13. If you can not do without white rice in meals, then make it once a day & reduce the quantity. Use a combination of other cereals in same meal-ex: multigrain atta roti/ bajra roti. Include salads/stew & vegetables in large quantity in all main meals. Have low fat curd, sprouts/soyabean/nutrella, /fish/chicken/egg (not fried) in the same meal. This way you can bring down the GI of the meal. 14. Have a coconut water (w/o cream) daily. 15. Replace cooking salt with rock salt & cut salt in cooking to half. Use lemon, vinegar, herbs to enhance the flavor of your foods instead.

My question was how to improve my haemoglobin level which is around 9 since a few years. The answer I got has nothing to do with haemoglobin but only regarding diabetes, which is well under control.

Mr. Lybrate-user, diabetes hardly produces any symptoms, that is why most people do not recognise it. When it does cause symptoms those are excess urination, excess hunger, excess thirst, unexplained weight loss and tiredness. This disease can only be controlled by proper treatment, which has to continue for lifetime. Plus diet control and exercise are also important. Diet has to be very individualised based on ideal body weight, extent of exercise and blood sugar levels. A diabetic patient should avoid sweets completely, avoid deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries, sweetened aerated drinks and high fat milk products. Consume more of green leafy vegetables and salads. Caloric intake has to be restricted.
