Diabetes- Everyone should know about (Dos And Don'ts)

MD - Homeopathy, BHMS

Diabetes- Everyone should know about (Dos And Don'ts)

While india is racing towards the no 1 country having the most number of diabetic patients, though the knowledge regarding the general guidelines about diabetes care, or dos and dont's to follow is lacking on a very large scale patients and that includes the most literate persons also.

There are a few things that matters the most which are as follows:

1) diet: most patients are in knowledge that the diet should be restricted in sweets. But rarely anybody knows that only restriction of food that taste sweet will not do the needed.

The food high in carbohydrates also must be included in the list as carbohydrates are the first line source of the body's energy store to convert them in to sugar.

E. G. Rice, potatos, bananas, or over ripen fruits.

And advice is to take them in minimum quantity instead of completely banning them.

Again how to eat? the advise is to divide your large meals in to smaller meals at the interval of 3-4 hours. Avoid eating too much at a time. Diabetes patients also should not indulge in fasting too much.

2) exercise: now many knows that diabetes is having two types: insulin dependent and insulin independent.

In the first type there is actual lack of effective circulating insulin, while the second types does have most of the time considerable amount of insulin to be used but the effectiveness is reduced. Because of the increased amount of fat deposition around cells. In that case doing prescribed exercise will not only help build the general health but by reducing the fat layer around the cells it helps the insulin to reach its effector cells and do its functions normally. Thats why exercise is one of the crucial key points in the diabetic regime.

3) regular investigation: this a very major dilema in many patients that I have observed throughout my practice. Many of the patients don't go for investigation in the fear that what if the blood sugar level comes abnormal. At that point I could remember a saying" if a cat drinks milk with the eyes closed, it doesn't mean that world does not see it.

If its already abnormal then by going for the investigation will make you aware and you can take proper preventive steps to by pass any complications that might have fall upon you.

So advise isto go for the regular blood sugar checkup at least once every two months for those whose levels remains under the normal range and often if it is uncontrolled.

And one should also think of investigated for hba1c every 3-4 months as it will give general idea of the glycemic control.

4) general prevention of complication and specific cares:

By following the above mentioned points you could easily prevent the major complications. But there are also some specific cares you should not ingnore:

Like get examined for any underlying heart condition, or opthalmic conditions, or the like, or kidney problems, or neurological involvement.

Out of these one that I care the most and patients ingnore the most is foot care: 

Why is this important: as our feet not being a vital organ we usually ignore but it can be a reason for a very major complication and even can be fatal.

How?

Because of diabetes there are very chances that any injury will not heal at a normal pace and if not taken a due care then it can turn into gangrene. Which we all know that leads to amputation and life long being a handicap. 

Because of poor supply and other vascular degeneration it can cause deep vein thrombosis means the veins in you leg gets obstructed by clotts and if such clott dislodges from there and gets in to the circulation then whenever it gets deposited it causes a grave complication like myocardial infarction (heart attack), stroke (paralysis), or other organs can also get affected.

These were some important topics that I thought the general population should know so that they can educate themselves and minimize their emergency visits to the doctors.

Being a homeopath I cannot restrain myself to propogate homeopathy because it is as a true notion that a harmless and gentle treatment, less costly than any other mode of treatment (directly or indirectly), very easy to follow (just few white sugar pills and drops of medicines), prevents the above mentioned complications, and not only that also improves the general health.

There are some homeopathic medicines well proved to be very effective and unquestionable positive effects:

E. G:- syzigium jambolanum, cephalendra, abroma augusta, uranium nitricum, phosphoric acid etc.

Note: above mentioned medicines are very useful and anybody can try but the advise is to consult the specialist as the doses and the repititions needs to be regulated case specifically.

Symptoms and Treatments for Adenoids

MS - ENT , MBBS

Here are some tips and treatments for adenoids

Hi I’m Dr. Vijay Verma. I practice at Three senses ENT Allergy and Dental Clinic. We all know that kids are always suffering from continuous sneezing. There is an obstruction and also discharge and sometimes bleeding from the nose. They have breathing difficulties and I know that in every family kids are suffering from these problems because they are going into daycare and suppose that there are 20 kids and one out of them always has cold. Your kid is always prone but in depth, we ignore these symptoms of ‘Adenoids’.

Adenoids are nothing but just like tonsils but are present behind your nose. When they get enlarged they tend to cause nasal obstruction to the child. This infection always gives rise to continuous nasal irritation. Children tend to sneeze which causes nasal discharge. When these adenoids fall back inside your throat it causes sore throat and causes continuous cough for the child plus when they sleep, they are unable to take proper amounts of oxygen and if that is happening, they cannot grow properly

.And this one thing is always missed, so one should consult an ENT specialist for these problems of Adenoids because after 12 years although they regress in size, the changes which they lead to are permanent. They can protrude the tooth out, so sooner or later you will need to visit your dentist; a lifelong problem. There is also a possible accumulation behind the ear drum so the kid starts to have various problems with listening. All these are associated to Adenoids, so they start in childhood but leave permanent changes. So I would suggest you to visit your doctor as soon as possible if you notice that your child is having continuous sneezing, nasal discharge or sore throat.

For adenoids, there are two types of treatment:

(a) The therapy of Spray or

(b) Surgery, so it depends on the size of the adenoids.

Depending on that, it is medically treated or surgically treated. Usually all of us are scared of surgeries but now the tools have become very safe. It is either done with a microdebrider or a coblator which makes it a bloodless surgery and also one which is not a painful surgery; it would lead to your kids being happy.

I would also advise you to visit me via Lybrate.

If your child's age is between 9-12 years and his/her front teeth or jaws are looking forwardly placed then consult orthodontist as soon as possible as this is the proper age to treat your child by modifying jaw growth if there is any imbalance between upper n lower jaw.

Hi lybrate-user, babies skin are very sensitive. But no matter how well you are getting time for yourself, you will always put your baby first. Even when you are thinking of ways to get a fairer and glowing skin, you will want to look for ways to get your baby’s skin fairer and softer! Here are a few home remedies for you: 1. Nice & Warm Oil Massage - You must have been told by your mother or grandmother a hundred times that massaging your newborn with a hot oil is good for his bones and muscles to get them stronger. But what they didn’t tell you is that the hot oil massage also improves the complexion of your baby. It adds another protective layer of moisture on their skin and this results in mild pinkish glow and blossom. 2. Using An Optimum Water Temperature For Bathing - As much as it essential for the adults to take care of the water temperature they are bathing with, it is even more important that you keep an optimum water temperature for your baby’s bath. Otherwise, too hot or cold water will dry out your young one’s sensitive skin and make it appear dull and dark. 3. Soft Baby Scrub - Don’t worry, we won’t ask you to use your everyday scrub on your delicate baby. Instead, you can prepare a baby scrub using baby oil, chickpea flour, milk, rose water, and an evenly grounded gram pulse. Gently scrub away the impurities and this will also improve the blood circulation in your baby’s body, that will lead to a fairer complexion ultimately. 4. Mild Baby Friendly Body Pack - Your young one’s body is totally new to the environmental factors, with more sensitive skin than any adult. Fostering the little one’s skin with a mild body pack will nurture their skin and give them an evenly fair skin tone. Mix sandalwood, milk, saffron and turmeric to make a smooth paste and apply it on your baby’s body. Leave it on for 10 minutes and wash off with lukewarm water. This will not only make him fairer but will also protect him from various skin infections. Do this once in a week. 5. Complete Moisturization - The most important and essential step in the baby skin care routine is the moisturization. You can apply a good and mild baby skin-friendly moisturizer once a day. 6. Give A Regulated Sunbath - We understand that protecting your little one from the harsh rays of the sun is essential, but some natural vitamin D is necessary for the skin to stay bright and healthy as well. Use a pram or shed to protect your baby from the impact of direct sunlight. 7. Fresh Fruit Juices - Fruit juices are a great option for babies above 3 months. Feeding your baby a fresh juice of grapes will help increase the sheen of the epidermis and fruits like oranges & apples will improve your baby’s overall health. Hope this helps. Good Luck.

Most likely he may be sleeping for long hours in day so he is alert in night. Keep him busy in play or activities & avoid sleep more than 1 hour in day.

Hi doctors, My little baby has completed 7 months and now 8 month is running. I've started to give him little bit solid food along with the cow milk. But some of my Superiors are not allowing me to give him solid food. The are telling that it's not the proper time. After 1 year I should start the solid food. Explain me why should I start solid food after 6 months so that I can convince them by showing your explanation. Moreover tell me too much cow milk is beneficial for my baby? Thanks.

Weaning towards solid foods is individualistic. Semisolids are gradually introduced from 6 month onward or once the baby starts showing swallowing actions. One needs to check how comfortable is baby in swallowing. Food in semisolid form like chapati dipped and soften in dal or soup is recommended, soft small cut fruit is ok. Try foods that baby can eat comfortable. Avoid crispy and hard foods as they having risk of choking the baby.
