Hello, follow doctor prescription. Ou can control diabetes by having a medication prescribed by doctor. Its a degenerative disease inside from your body.

Get rid of diabetes will take time as this degeneration might happened from a long time, but we only come to know when you have a sympton out of it. Let me know for more info.

Thyroid medicines need to be taken as recommended. Overdosing can be catastrophic. It may lead you to more serious effects than the primary disease itself. This treatment is replacement therapy of deficient hormone in your body. Chances are that you would require this medicine on a very long period basis. You will conceive on the right dose and not on a high dose. Be informed about thyroid better. It helps to be convinced better by your self education.

Your sugars are definitely on a higher side. You have tried exercise and diet modification but no medicine yet. I suggest this is the time to add medicine. Delaying this will postpone your diabetes related complications by significant extent. Any confusion then feel free to revert.

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 - have small frequent meals. Do not fast for long hours. 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. Do not attempt to try out too many remedies as you could go into hypoglycaemia. Sleep well. It's all a matter of discipline.

My father recently tested sugar and it is 290 in fasting. We consulted a doctor today and he advised to take insulin with power 20 morning and 16 night. My parents are very worried and I have never seen my father so weak before. I am trying hard to make the situation light by smiling and sharing many website notes where it is mentioned that it is curable and nothing to worry. They feel a bit relieved but still something is killing them inside. I am keeping myself strong by saying positive things to them but the truth is I am scared inside. Please suggest me what is the best possible treatment for this disease so that I can see my papa jumping and smiling. I know he is very strong but I also know that he is very worried. Can this be curable? I love them a lot please give me some power so that I can make them much strong and my father can get out of this disease completely.

Mr. Lybrate-user, diabetes t2 is a preventable disease, so is high blood pressure. But t1 diabetes is an autoimmune disease and can not be prevented. Following healthy habits, exercising regularly, taking a balanced diet, avoiding junk food, alcohol and smoking can help a person healthy and free from diabetes (t2) and high blood pressure. But no one can remain totally disease free. Human skin colour can not be changed, whatever one might do or apply to it. One should accept the colour god has given. Taking various vitamin supplements without any deficiency is not going to benefit.

Hello, It is not safe for you to give your father alcohol deaddiction medicine. This should be prescribed by the doctor after he has seen your father and examined him. The dose would depend on the amount of alcohol he is consuming, the type of alcohol and since long he is consuming alcohol. Further, some of these medicines may have side effects and it is important for your father/family to be aware of the possible side effects so that you could seek help incase he gets those side effects. Also the doctor can motivate your father to give up alcohol. He may also be given some motivational therapy/behavioural therapy so that he can abstain from alcohol once the course of medicines is completed. So kindly take him to a doctor who deals with deaddictions. Hope this helps you. Wishing you and your family all the best. Thank you.

Does bitter gourd juice good or bad for diabetes?
Although this is not proven scientifically, but bitter gourd being a tikta rasa purifies the liver hence definitely affecting better glucuse digestion so for diabetes 10 ml before food early morning is a good idea.
