The patterns of depressive thinking and drug dependence are strong after so many years. Wait for the result of homeopathic medicines, you can seek a counselor's help (preferably home visit) she may feel good about it. Try giving more time, talking to her assuring her, comforting her.

Having honey Lemon in warm water may make you feel good that you are doing something for your excessive weight but its effect in weight loss is like trying to empty the Olympic size swimming pool with a 10 litre bucket on a rainy day! Such gimmicks don't work but human mind is culturally conditioned to expect miracle. If you are really interested in losing weight, you will have to invest time and energy in developing healthful habits and make significant lifestyle changes. With right kind of guidance you can slowly get knowledge about nutrition, exercise, stress management and sleep hygiene and develop skill to implement that knowledge in your life. My best wishes are for you - whichever path you choose...

You are prediabetic. Please take a herbal medicine nutridiabe - 1 tablet a day for 1 month and then after a gap of 1 month again for 1 month. Repeat like this for atleast one year. This will reduce/postpone your chances of getting diabetes. Nutridiabe is totally herbal medicine and very good for diabetics or for the people who are prone for diabetes in near future. For detailed discussion/suggestions, please send details privately. Thanks.

It is found that bitter gourd, cinnamon, amla juice, fenugreek, jamun are known to be efficient in controlling diabetes. Sprouts, fruits like apples, apricots, beets, berries, carrots, green vegetables, salad, whole grains, oats, channa atta, millets and other high fibre foods are good for diabetics. Paneer, chickpea flour (besan) are good for diabetics. Apart from these have less fatty food. Keep your blood pressure and cholesterol under control. Exercise or go for walk daily. If on antidiabetic medications, take regularly. If on insulin, continue your injections. Monitor hb1ac every 3 monthly. Take less spicy food. Hope this helps you to take care.

Mr. Lybrate-user, uncontrolled diabetes, does affect various organs and a number of functions in our body. Peripheral neuropathy is one of those complications of diabetes. This leads to pain and burning sensation in feet as well as burning sensation. The drug pragabalin is quite effective for reducing the pain. But prime need is strict blood sugar control - fasting closer to 100 mg and pp 150 to 160 mg, hba1c%<7. If this is not achieved other drugs may not show much benefit. So see tha blood sugar levels are controlled better.

My uncle suffering from sugar and level go very down and some time very high what we can do.
Dear lybrate user with the infomation provided it appears that either your uncle is not compliant to the medicines or the medicines are not suiting him. This is more dangerous and bad for a diabetic. It is advisable if you can revert with his sugar values along with medication list for better understanding of his condition.

Blood sugar 130 if its in the fasting state is abnormal, means you have diabetes. But if after meals, then its normal.

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. flax oil, 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.
