Mr. Lybrate-user kumar, primarily he should achieve a very strict blood sugar control like fasting around 100 mg, pp 150 to 160 mg, hba1c%<7. Get his feet examined by a competent diabetologist and a podiatrist (diabetic foot specialist). Use soft or specially designed foot wear. Avoid injuris to feet. He should examine his feet every day to see if any additional problems have come up. Secondly if need be get a full assessment for peripheral neuropathy and blood supply to lower limb by a colour doppler test. Neglecting the feet can be very dangerous. Thanks.

Dear lybrate user, you need counselling along with your medicines for depression. The counselling process will help you to understand and get rid of the root cause of your depression. Antidepressants may affect your sexual desire, and erection. Once, your negative thoughts reduce, you will need lesser medicines and your body will start functioning normally. Then you will have normal sexual desire and you will not have problems with erection. Consult a counsellor at the earliest. Take care.

For the pain you can take an nsaid dicloran 1-0-1. Will need to reduce urica acid send the reports and ask privately. It is not as easy task to control blood sugar in the desired normal range. Whatever we eat is metabolized to sugar in the body to provide energy for our daily activities. For the absolute control, one has to monitor his / her blood sugar at regular intervals (self-monitoring of blood glucose? smbg). Though difficult, this can be done by a glucometer and keep a record. Get an idea of fasting sugar (fbs) and 2 hours after food (ppbs) and check before dinner and after every major food. The basic idea is to reduce the food intake to 1/3 of what you take now. The dictum of sugar control is diet, exercise, diet + medicine and at later stage medicine+ insulin will be needed. For sugar control there is the need for regular advice and follow up. Just one time consultation or advice is not enough to guide a diabetic in scientifically & medically correct manner. For giving you regular follow up you ask me privately with all details like your daily eating pattern and medicines you take. I assure you a proper guidance. If you keep in touch.

pp level of 180 mg is high, fall in pre diabetic stage. You have to continue what you are doing now, plus exercise regularly. Hba1c% of 6.6% shows diabetes level. To be on safer side it is better to consider taking a drug like metformin along with diet, exercise and weight control.

Dear. Adolescent minds are always lazy and wandering. This happens because of their hormonal imbalance. They need constant motivation and appreciation. Parents cannot give the motivation because adolescent people do not accept such motivation. You can learn to appreciate your son even in small positive tasks. Motivation should be given by psychologists like me. You may consult a psychologist online. Take care.

Mr Zishan, If treatment for hypothyroidism has been started then after 6 weeks one should check TSH levels to see if levels have come to normal or if there is any need to increase the dose of thyroxine being taken. This treatment has to continue for life time. There is no way to stop it .

How to control high blood pressure and blood sugar in case of fat body? tell some simple home based methods.
to control high blood pressure and high blood sugar specific drug treatment is essential. Other remedies are additional support. No" simple home remedy" can control these conditions. If some one is over weight, then weight reduction has to be done by exercise and diet restriction, avoiding deep fried foods, junk food, pastries, alcohol, red meat, egg yolk etc.

Rather choose a variety of foods including whole grains, fresh vegetables, salads, fruits, low fat dairy products. 9- Take high-fibre and complex carbohydrates:-like oats as they are easily broken down to basic sugars.

Try green tea instead.

Go for a walk in the morning. Do regular exercise. Take lukewarm water with half spoon methidana powder. Loose your extra weight this will not only lower your blood pressure but also helps lowering your blood pressure and cholesterol too. No long gapes and skipping of meals. Never miss out breakfast. You should avoid fasting and feasting. Timely and balanced diet is as important as regular medicine intake to control diabetes. Complex carbohydrates and fibre should be included in diet.

for controlling high blood sugar one has to take prescribed drugs regularly and follow certain life style changes. 1) exercise regularly for at least 1 h a day, 2) avoid sweets, sugar, deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries, 3) maintain near normal weight for age and height, 4) increase the intake of green vegetables, salads and certain fruits. In addition for high blood pressure restrict salt intake to less than 2g a day. No extra salt while eating. About black spot it is difficult to advise any thing.

She is suffering from low grade urinary infection with acute exacerbation mostly aided due to her diabetic state. You haven't mentioned her blood sugar levels. It may be the problem area. Any such infection. If not controlled efficiently will cause it to spread upwards along the ureters and may reach kidneys causing a critical condition called payelonephritis. If bactrim ds is not giving relief you must urgently consult your physician. He might change the drug according to the culture report done recently. With good control of blood sugar she will recover as I hope.
