So for early control of blood sugar your have to start allopathic medicines with diet control and yoga and pranayama. Along with allopathic medicines your may go for homoeopathy or ayurveda. With the time you can subside your allopathic medicines as soon as your blood sugar start reducing.

My husband is a diabetic for the last 17 years. How can he control his sugar apart from taking medicines?

My husband is a diabetic for the last 17 years. How can he control his sugar apart from taking medicines?
If you have type 2 diabetes and your blood sugar levels are racing up and down like a roller coaster, it's time to get off the ride. Big swings in your blood sugar can make you feel lousy. But even if you aren't aware of them, they can still increase your risk for a number of serious health problems. By making simple but specific adjustments to your lifestyle and diet, you can gain better blood-sugar control. Your body uses the sugar, also known as glucose, in the foods you eat for energy. Think of it as a fuel that keeps your body moving throughout the day. Blood sugar highs and lows

I am suffering from type ii diabetes. I walk for half an hour everyday. Is it enough or should I undertake some more exercises like yoga, etc.

Lybrate-user, half an hour walking is bare minimum, that is required. However, if you can do exercise for 1 hour a day, that will benefit in achieving better control of blood glucose. Simple brisk walking is as good as any other exercise. If want to start yogic asanas, that is good, but in addition to walking. Plus maintain a strict dietary control. Thanks.

I have sugar disease, what tablets to be taken to control blood sugar levels please tell me.

I have sugar disease, what tablets to be taken to control blood sugar levels please tell me.
Mr. Lybrate-user, you are already taking glimepiride and metformin for controlling blood sugar. That is the right treatment. If your treatment is appropriate then fasting sugar should be closer to 100 mg and pp 150 to 160 mg and hba1c% <7. Apart from drugs diet control and exercise are equally important to control blood sugar.

GLOW-AID FAIRNESS CREAM (ADVEN) Apply in circular fashion in morning nd at night BLOOME-203 SOAP (BIOFORCE) Wassh face with this face wash before applying GLOW-AID cream SUNCARE CREAM (BAKSON) Apply 30 minutes before going outsside nd again reapply after 3-4 hrss after washing with soap----------- A quick and easy solution is lemon juice. Lemons have vitamin C that can lighten dark spots on your face. It’s easy to apply. 1.Put some fresh lemon juice on a cotton ball and rub it directly on the affected skin area. 2.Allow it to dry and then wash it off with plain water. 3.Continue applying this dark spot removal home remedy for at least two weeks to get the desired result. If you have delicate or sensitive skin, you can dilute the lemon juice with plain water, rosewater, or honey. You can also use lime juice to get rid of black spots, applying it in the same manner as described above.

Is walking helpful for diabetes patients in winter where temperature dips to zero degree.
Preferably a diabetic patient should avoid exposure to freezing cold area.He may go for a walk with adequate warm clothing and woollen socks.For a diabetic protecting feet against cold is very important because they are more susceptible to frost bite leading to gangrene of toes

I am 50 years, and weight is 85 kgs and my sugar levels are post lunch 269 to get under control what is the best way?

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology

I am 50 years, and weight is 85 kgs and my sugar levels are post lunch 269 to get under control what is the best way?
Hello, blood sugar level of 289 mg pp is fairly high. It can be brought under control by following ways: 1) strict diet control, taking exact calories based on ideal body weight, 2) exercising regularly more than 1 hour a day and 3) appropriate medications. Plus it appears you are over weight (85 kgs), hence weight reduction itself will help in reducing blood sugar. Present medications may not adequate or need adjustment in dosing. Similarly other two aspects like diet and exercise need to be seriously looked at.

Mr. lybrate-user, Gout occurs because of deposition of uric acid crystals in and around the joint space. So there are drugs given which help excrete uric acid plus NSAIDs to control acute pain and inflammation. As a precaution following food s should be avoided: red meat, organ meat, certain sea foods like scallops, sardines, salmon, haddock, herring, mushrooms. Mussels and alcohol and sweetened aerated drinks. Thanks.
