A diabetic person also need to attend counselling session along with their medications. Her symptoms are part of the illness. Besides this, it must be difficult for you to manage with your mother's doubting nature. It may not be possible to control everything but only those things that are under your control. Some things you may have to live with and in this case you need to know how to manage and cope with it. Counselling will help you to find this balance and tools to manage your issues in the best way. If you have any queries about this please contact me on private chat.

Simple cysts generally dissolves by itself or by medication, so no need to worry about that. But since you have thyroid also,if its not controlled this may also cause scanty or irregular menses. These are the reasons which is why you might not be producing good quality eggs, so get an AMH test of you done . According to the report proceed further.

Hum log mix is analog and definitely better than mixtard which is human insulin. With analogue you won' t gain weight n there are very less chances of hypoglycemia moreover analogue can injected immediately before meals. What I suggest you is to make cetapin twice a day, weight for a month n the if not controlled increase the dose of insulin.

Dear lybrate-user, I understand your concern for your mother's health. First of all I'm not suggesting insulin for your mother but please understand that insulin isn't our enemy! It is the most time tested medical molecule in market for last hundred years and it has save millions of people from premature deaths due to diabetes. Having said that a doctor can help you by titrating all existing oral drugs as well as adding new molecules in treatment can help your mom achieve better blood sugar levels without insulin. Regards.

I am a diabetic n taking medicine for this but how do I know that it is type one or type 2 diabetes. ?
Hi Mahendra, The basic difference between type 1 and type 2 diabetes is that in type 1 diabetes there is no insulin production be the beta cells of the pancreas and it is necessary to take insulin externally to utilize glucose, that is why it is also called Insulin dependent diabetes. While in type 2 diabetes there is defect in insulin functioning or/and insulin secretion, depending upon various conditions type 2 diabetes can be managed well with following proper diet, exercise and medication. Though in some cases patient with type 2 diabetes may also require insulin. Type 2 diabetes is majorly caused by poor lifestyle, excess body and is also hereditary while type 1 diabetes occur due to destruction of beta cells which is a auto immune defect. As per your description it seems that yours is type 2 diabetes.

Ayurveda and Blood Sugar Imbalance

Ayurveda and Blood Sugar Imbalance

Ayurveda, the traditional way of healing is known to be a crucial and effectual therapy for a lot of ailments. Since the primitive ages, mankind has been approaching Ayurveda for remedial purposes and in most instances have reaped fruitful results. Ayurveda seeks to heal diseases using natural herbs that are said to resonate well with the four elemental constituents of beings, i.e air, water, earth and fire. Ayurveda uses myriad herbs and natural ingredients in a unique proportion to impart physical as well as spiritual wellness. One of the most common and yet fairly formidable disease plaguing modern lives is diabetes, induced by imbalance in the blood sugar levels in the human body. 

Ayurveda recommends the use of a few select herbs to control and alleviate the blood sugar imbalance.

  1. Gymnema Leaf: Indigenously called gurmar, Gymnema leaves regulate the insulin level in our body. It not only prevents absorption of sugar in the intestine, but also stimulates cell growth in the pancreas. As a consequence, the insulin levels in the body is maintained and the blood sugar problems get neutralized.
  2. Cinnamon: Cinnamon is replete with polyphenols that trigger off a healthy count of insulin secretion. Cinnamon has other beneficial properties as well. Whether consumed as tea or sprinkled on food as a flavor, Cinnamon can be instrumental in combatting blood sugar imbalance.
  3. Fenugreek seeds: A common find in most Indian kitchens, Fenugreek seeds are well known for their health advantages.  Its pungent sweet flavor adds to the taste of many dishes. But most importantly, fenugreek seeds extensively keep the blood sugar level in control. 
  4. Basil Leaf: Basil leaves are one of the most commonly used natural remedies for a wide range of diseases. The basil extracts are used in various food items and are extremely effective in curbing the excessive presence of blood sugar in the body. In general as well, basil leaves regulate the metabolism to a large extent.
  5. Coccinia Indica: This herb protects the vital organs from any damage caused due to diabetes. It stabilizes the breakdown of starch in the body.
  6. Azadirachta Indica: Common known as Neem, this herb is perhaps an indomitable medicine for increasing glucose tolerance. Neem is also used in allopathic medication on account of its various healing qualities.
