The child will have a family history of diabetes.Very difficult to say if the child will be diabetic or not.Regular monitoring of the baby will be required.Your sister also needs to be very closely monitored throughout her pregnancy to keep the sugars under normal control.

It can complicate the pregnancy to some extent. But not much if it kept under control. Please consult a proper homeopathic doctor for this. I would suggest you to go for at least one consultation. Either with me or some other doctor whom you trust. That will be better for you. Still if you have any queries, please feel free to ask me. Take care :)

How to put control our sugar level when insulin is not taken properly in a day or weak.

MBBS, DNB (General Medicine)
Endocrinologist, Delhi
How to put control our sugar level when insulin is not taken properly in a day or weak.
How to control hunger if food is not taken in a day or week. Sorry if I hurt your sentiments. But its just a way to explain this. Just as we can not curb hunger without eating, similarly we can not control sugars without insulin. Please understand and respect your body just as you understand your basic needs. Regards.

You cut down the blood sugar levels in many ways. The first method is with exercise. Make exercise your habit and do it for at least 30 minutes per day. Yoga meditation aerobics walking cycling jogging dancing etc all includes in the category of exercise. Now with the dietary requirements you need to have a good idea that what all foods are essential to you at your this condition. According to me, I suggest my patients a dietary plan. You can also follow the same. *have dinner as early as possible. *restrict intake of rice preparations for dinner. *include fruits into your diet especially pomegranate dates dry grapes juice. *strict stop smoking and alcohol intake. *follow a regular diet weekly. *restrict intake of non veg daily. *have oats with milk daily once. *have food prepared with millets and wheat. If possible you could also follow some natural remedies. Some of them are *intake of gooseberry juice with turmeric powder after your breakfast. *intake of water boiled with the stem of tinospora cordifolia. (instantly decreases the blood sugar levels) *have cucumber juice in empty stomach. Last not least make up your mind. Build confidence and trust in your own actions that you can completely overcome this diabetes. All the best.

My latest blood sugar checked today at home is 114 mg/dl ( by One Touch Glucometer of Johnson & Johnson) and latest TSH level is 1.6 mIU/ml, T3 is 1.2 ng/ml and T4 is 10.0 mcg/dl. Is the blood sugar checked at home with this glucometer are as accurate as lab results? My latest Hb1Ac is 6.1. I got diabetes only a year back and this was not the case in the beginning. I do feel nausea in the morning even if I eat less, don't eat or eat full in the breakfast. I do feel full by just eating quite lesser amount of food than I used to eat before. So, what is the solution of my weariness everyday? Is it food or medicine? I have to take Metformin since it controls my blood sugar very effectively and it is safer drug than other drugs. I am basically Pharmacist and can understand that organs lose it's efficiency day by day in diabetes if not controlled within limits. But as I check my blood sugar every week or two at home, it generally comes within limit of 110 mg/dl with sometimes going out of limit once in a while by 10-20 points if I have eaten some sweets or eaten more carbs or eaten in more quantity. What habits I should follow in order to control blood sugar along with feeling energetic everyday?

Yes you have Diabetes. There is no doubt about it. You have to consult an endocrinologist for a diet chart specifically suited for you and you need to take medicines as per his advice. It is very important for you to get your HbA1c<6.5% as you are young. That would be possible only when your fasting is <100 mg/dl and 2 hour post meal glucose is <140 mg/dl.

I am suffering from sugar and I really want to be diabetes free. What to do to control it with no time to waste?
Real key to control your diabetes is combination of diet, exercise and drugs. Daily waking for 40 to 60 min. Avoiding sweet, white rice, potatoes and fried food, and regular checking of hba1c every 6 months is essential. Your diabetologist will change drugs and dosage frequently to control sugar. Follow his advise. In addition you can take ayurvedic medicines also.

Along with thyroid you may be having chronoic allergic pharyngitis or bronchitis. Do warm saline gargle regularly two to three times daily have homemade freshly prepared lemon juice which is rich in vitamin c thereby incresing your body autoimmunity which prevents infection including viral infection.
