In diabetes fruits like mango, banana, chikkoo and grapes are to be avoided, as they increase blood sugar rapidly. Watermelon, other melons, pomegranate, apple, orange, sweet lime, pear, guava and papaya. In pre diabetes there is such strict restriction, still taking mango milk shake is not advisable. Once a while 1/2 a cup may be taken.

Mr. Lybrate-user, amoxyclav 625 should be taken 3 tablets a day for at least 5 days or longer to get complete relief from any infection including tonsillitis, pharyngitis etc. Another thing to be remembered is that cough usually takes a bit longer to go away. There is no need to change or another antibiotic. Thanks.

Your sugar levels appear in good control with present medication that is on. The pain in heel is possibly a condition called plantar fasciaitis. For this there are few specific exercises which an orthopedician can advise you. Plus apply ice twice a day for about 10 minutes / twice a day. Also use soft foot wear (with cushuned heel) at home and outside.

Hello, Your wife is suffering voiding symptoms- that means she is not able to urinate normally- voiding symptoms usually include hesitancy in initiating flow- the patient takes a couple of minutes to actually start to urinate; she may also complain of intermittency- that is starting and stopping the urine flow; poor stream of urine etc. This could be due to a few reason 1) age related detrusor muscle (muscle of urinary bladder) weakness 2) urethral stricture, urethral wall diverticulitis etc (some obstruction in her urinary pipe), 3) some mass in pelvis 4) consolation etc. So, I would suggest you to consult a good urologist and take his opinion. Hope this helps you. Thank you.

I advice you include diet high in protein (20%of kcals) for the health of diabetics because it supplies the essential amino acids for tissue repair. Pulsese are rich in protein and fibre. Take lukewarm water with half spoon methidana powder. Complex carbohydrates and fibre should be included in diet. You should avoid fasting and feasting. Junk food should be avoided. Timely and balanced diet is as important as regular medicine intake to control diabetes. Except fruit juice you should eat complete fruit because it contain fibers which is good for a diabetic. You should take one glass milk (skim milk) at the night.

If you are in your initial stages, try diet-exercise routine to gain better control of your blood sugars with minimum possible medicines. Also, try losing atleast 10-12 kg of your weight. It will do wonders & there are chances that your medicines might stop for now. I would advise you and your family members to go for genetic tests as you have got the disease at such an early age.

Hi drink some bitter gourd juice on an empty stomach each morning. First remove the seeds of two to three bitter gourds and use a juicer to extract the juice. Add some water and then drink it. Follow this treatment daily in the morning for at least two months. Take pranacharya diabeto and shilajeet capsule twice a day with water. Take vasant kusumakar ras twice a day. Avoid sweets. Take small meals in less time interval. Do pranayama early morning. Avoid alcohol consumption.
