I will suggest you to first go for homoeopathic treatment for 2 months and report. Homoeopathic treatment syzygium jambolanum q, cephalandra indica q, gymnema sylvestra q (all 3 sbl lab) 30 ml each. Now mix all the 3 medicines in a 100ml bottle. We get 90 ml of the medicine. Start taking 20 drops of this combination in 20 ml fresh water 3 times a day 15 minutes before meals. Vincetoxicum (adel) 20 drops in 1 glass fresh water early morning empty stomach eat little at a time every 2-3 hourly. Don' t eat too much at a time brisk morning walk for 30 minutes regularly dinner 2 hours before going to sleep 10 minutes evening walk after dinner avoid sweets, mango, grapes, cold drinks in particular.

Mr. Lybrate-user, diabetes mellitus, is a disease occurring due to either lack of insulin or resistance to its action or both. Plus over weight, inactivity and junk foods. This disease can only be controlled by taking regular medicine as prescribed by the doctor, plus dietary control and regular exercise for about an hour, so that normal weight is maintained. As regards the drug mentioned, is an ayurvedic (herbal) combination. Supposed to be helping in controlling diabetes. If you want you may take it. But do not stop your current treatment, otherwise blood sugar control will become haywire. I do not recommend it as a primary treatment of diabetes. World over there is no treatment that can cure diabetes. Thanks for the question.

My aunt suffering from thyroid? Whats it's major cause and what's its precautions? We can cure from that or not?

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Mr. Lybrate-user, by saying" suffering from thyroid" are talking about hypothyroidism? if so then the treatment is to give correct dose of thyroxine tablets daily. Dose will depend upon body weight and tsh levels. Plus patient has to avoid soy beans, soy containing products, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, radish, peanuts, mustard and coffee. Should consume more of green leafy vegetables, salads and fruits. Use whole grain flour for making chapati and roti, avoid refined flour like maida. Plus should exercise daily for at least 1 hour. This is a thyroxine deficiency disorder, hence supplement of that hormone is required daily, so there is no cure. Tablets have to be taken for lifetime.

Hi, I am a 33 year old male with diabetic history which has been under control with insulin. I am having sharp pains in the right side of abdomen and at the back. The pain seems to spike with geavy breathing or instant body movement.

There is evidence that certain dietary supplements and vitamins can help with certain types of pain. Fish oil is often used to reduce pain associated with swelling. Topical capsaicin, derived from chili peppers, may help with arthritis, diabetic nerve pain, and other conditions. There's evidence that glucosamine can help relieve moderate to severe pain from osteoarthritis in the knee. Do reply back for private consultation. And detailed treatment plan.

Hello lybrate-user, metformin will give you gastrointestinal side effects. Diabetic per se will cause you diabetic gastroparesis. Needs some investigations to confirm it consult your physician regarding this.

Which of the oils is best and safety for diabetic patients. Kindly describe the reasons about it.

Which of the oils is best and safety for diabetic patients. Kindly describe the reasons about it.
Blend of Desi ghee and mustard oil or if you can afford olive oil. There is ratio of essential fatty acids which keeps you healthy. There are two important fatty acids omega3 and omega 6 and ideal ratio of them 1: 4. If you take refind oils this ratio goes upto 1: 70 or less. Which produces oxidative stess in body and give rise to heart problem. By consuming desi ghee and mustard oil but in less amount this ratio comes 1: 8 which is close to ideal ratio.

Reckeweg ) 20 drops thrice daily in 20 ml fresh water before meals. Vincteoxinum ( adel ) 20 drops morning empty stomach in a glas of fresh water homoeo med. R very light medicines. You can discontinue any time u see that your blood sugar levels r persistantly normal. Report after 3 months

Dear, your sugars are well controlled with this therapy. Hba1c is also excellently controlled. But I observe that your bmi is slightly higher. In this context piopod 15 may lead to weight gain. Although it's a very good medicine to make insulin act better, weight gain negates it's good effect. You can use other newer drugs with good track records in place of piopod. But if you are comfortable with existing treatment then all the three medicines are available as a single tablet too which can reduce the number of tablets and expenses too. Also amaryl 1 mg may make you feel low on sugar sometimes manifesting as excessive hunger or tremors. So observe sugar levels at home at various different time i. E before lunch, before dinner or randomly at 6 pm. This will help you to detect low sugar if any.

Continue tb. Glycomet, it has no side effects. It will decrease your insulin resistance, and decrease your chances of getting overt diabetes. Lifestyle changes, exercise are very important for decreasing your insulin resistance.
