Hello diabetes is a preventable disease. You can certainly avoid it by following a regulated life style. You have to maintain your weight closer to ideal body weight for size. Bmi should be 23 kg per sq meter. Exercise at least 1 h every day. Avoid excess sweets and deep fried foods. Bmi = weight in kg height in sq meter. Ideal body weight= height in cms - 100. Waist should be below 90 cms.

Hello, If the person has T1 diabetes, then the only treatment is taking Insulin injections for lifetime. There are no oral drugs available. The reason being in these persons there is No Insulin production by Beta ells of pancreas. Since Insulin is needed for glucose, protein and fat metabolism constantly, then it has to be supplemented every day from outside. So it is said in Type 1 DM Insulin is needed for treatment and for survival of the patient. Thanks.

Hello, you need stronger allopathy medicines. Along with the medicines you need stronger diet restrictions and can follow some home remedies as well. Try consuming powder of methi seeds a teaspoon before meals.

symptoms of diabetes are incrased thirst, increased appetite, increased urination , loss of weight, blurring of vision, skin infections, leg cramps andmany more. There are no mentioned stages but for your understanding Stage 1 when it is controlled by diet and exercise. Stage 2 when it is controlled by diet, exercise and drugs. stage 3 when you require insulin to control it without any complications. Stage 4 Insulin and complications are present. There is no way to prevent it except for life style modifications

Dear, psychiatric medications are not meant to get dependent on them. You may have got relief the first time in a month period and that is a good sign that your body had ability to recover fast. May be your anxiety was not complicated by factors which may be present now. This time if your anxiety is not getting controlled, its better either you visit another doctor or simply ask him to change medicines. If he doesn't do that, then its better you should try Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) this time. It is a form of psychotherapy and targets symptoms of anxiety very well. There are several techniques in this form of therapy and step by step, in a short period of time, you may easily regulate your symptoms. That means, CBT is a form of therapy which makes you the master of your symptoms, rather than medicines. Medicinal treatment assumes that all symptoms of anxiety (or any other disorder) are due to changes in brain chemistry but ignores several other psychological factors which can be dealt only with psychotherapy. Your psychiatrist has put you on medical treatment which is generally the first line treatment for any patient but good psychiatrists always ask to get psychotherapy too. Relapse of symptoms that has happened with you may be dealt better with CBT rather than medicines. This time you MUST consider taking CBT from a good psychotherapist. Psychotherapists are Clinical Psychologists who are trained to provide different forms of psychotherapy. As I can read here, you are able to realize that your palpitations are triggered by stress or other things. This awareness is sufficient to work on cognitive and behavioral aspects of your anxiety. If anxiety gets controlled by medicines, its good, but it is always recommended to take CBT.

Hye, thanks for the query. For a diabetic it is best advised to have a diet planned as per the sugar levels, lifestyle and history. Though you can follow some guidelines - the sugar levels will fluctuate depending on what you ate or did not eat, stress levels and activity levels. You have to try and manage a balanced carb intake. Have small frequent meals. Do not fast for long hours. You have to eat 3 main and 3 mid meals. Your diet must include whole grains, seasonal fruits, vegetables, small amounts of nuts and dairy and pulses or dals or lean meats like chicken or fish and egg. Starchy vegetables need to be planned into the diet. Avoid a very heavy meal at one time. Avoid fruit juices, aerated drinks or sugarcane juice, honey, jaggery or sugar. Avoid junk foods. Exercise and stay active. Avoid exercise if sugar levels are above 250 mg/dl. Do not attempt to try out too many remedies as you could go into hypoglycaemia. Sleep well. It's all a matter of discipline.

Thyroid is a gland which secrets hormones. Either increased or decreased levels are found in diseased condition. Generally fat fertile female of age forty are considered to be prone to this. Your headache may be due to acidity which is disturbing your abdomen. Regularize your diet, sleep and exercise avoid tension. Some simple antacids may help. Regards.
