For type 1 diabetes patient, insulin is the treatment of choice. In type 1 diabetes insulin is not produced at all or produced in very minimal quantity by the pancreas.

My father age is 68 & having sugar empty stomach 160 & after meal 220. He wanted to do cataract operation is it safe? Or suggest me some perfect levels of sugar.

MD - Microbiology

Hi. This is not the right time for planned cataract surgery. His sugars need to be controlled. He might need insulin short dose for reducing the sugars. Once sugars under control go for planned cataract surgery.

If one has diabetes, I have heard that soaking methi seeds in water overnight and then eating in the morning helps in sugar. Is it so?

This measure might help in early Diabetes, but doesn't in Diabetes of long duration. Anyways, you can continue if it is helping as it is relatively harmless.

I was gone through a Heart Checkup. My ECG and Echo with color doppler are normal. Fasting blood sugar is normal. HDL 38 and LDL 176. I am 48 years of age and smoke occasionally with no bp and no diabetic. Dr. advised Crestor 10 Mg bed time and TMT. What is your opinion?

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Mr. lybrate-user, If ECG & Echo are normal and if you have no symptoms related any cardiac problem, TMT is not necessary at all. Taking Atorvastatin 10 mg may be useful to reduce LDL. Thanks.

I am 45 years old working in sales ans Marketing, I am suffering from sugar. May it is 230 to 240 avg. Second my back pain is started from almost one month. For sugar taking glycolate gp2 half daily before meals. And back pain nothing Pl suggest.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Mr. lybrate-user, Looking at details it is clear that your diabetes is uncontrolled. There is no mention of HbA1c%. Ideally well controlled diabetes should have fasting closer to 100 mg, PP 150 to 160 mg, HbA1c%<6.8. So it is clear that present treatment is inadequate, needs to be upgraded. Plus looking at your weight and height, you are overweight with a BMI of 28.62 kgs/M2 (normal <23 kgs). Your ideal body weight should be about 57 kgs. Therefore, weight reduction will definitely help in better blood glucose control. As regards back ache, weight reduction and some specific exercises will help in overcoming that. Thanks.

Why Homeopathy Is A Safer Alternative For Infertility?

MD. CH
Homeopath, Agartala
Why Homeopathy Is A Safer Alternative For Infertility?

Starting a family and being people who you can completely rely on is something that may be a dream that most people nurture and work towards. In the Indian culture, it is seen that children are supposed to serve as the backbone for the parents in their old age and when a couple is able to bear children, they may be able to lead more satisfied lives than at any other point in time. While most couples are blessed with happy families, there are a lot of those couples who may have to rely on medicines and treatments to be able to conceive a child.

With the changing lifestyle and the increasing amount of stress, a lot of couples are not able to conceive naturally. This is when they turn to medical help from professionals who may be able to suggest treatments and counselling. Even though the medications and treatments are sought very popularly, it is also a fact that couples have to go through painful procedures and unfruitful trials before they are able to get positive results, if at all that is possible. Not to mention the expensive treatment costs and the costly medicines that they have to invest in, apart from the mental and emotional trauma that is accompanied with it.

A safer alternative:
One of the safest alternatives to conventional medicine and treatments is to opt for homeopathy. This is a style of treatment that works on the body using natural means such as plants extracts and other natural derivatives, in combination with medicinal properties in healthy portions. With the use of such treatments and medicines, it may be possible for aspirant couples to be able to work on their body systems to make them healthier and more responsive to conceiving a child.

Some of the most important advantages of homeopathic treatment for infertility:

  1. The medicines make sure that they do not put the others aspects of health at jeopardy for the users of homeopathic medicines which means that the medicines do not have highly destructive side effects.
  2. The lack of side effects in the homeopathic medicines for infertility ensure that the couples remain mentally and emotionally strong enough to stick to the resolve of getting treated and that is something that may be helpful in the success of the treatment.
  3. Since the medicines are all organic, most of them are not as expensive as the conventional medicines.
  4. Choosing a safe stream of medication such as homeopathy may also help in ensuring that when the child is conceived, it does not get affected by the harmful medicines that may be administered to the couple.

When the future of your family and health is at stake, it is important that you take well thought out and wise decisions about what kind of treatments you should undergo. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Homeopath.

I am suffering from diabetes. It is increasing suddenly. What to do to control it.

MD- Ayurvedic Pathology
Ayurveda, Amritsar
Please add jou or barley flour in your diet and ragi flour. Roast this flour and mix 1/4th of it in normal wheat flour. Prepare chapaties with it and eat it daily. Eat more of fiber containing food like green leafy vegies, more of fresh seasonal fruits, drink less water with meals instead take sips of water while eating food and don? t drink before and after. Take 1 teaspoon of fenugreek seed powder (methi dana powder) with water daily will control diabetes and its complications. You can also chew 4-5 leaves of curry patta daily as it will reduce your blood pressure, protects liver and works as antioxidants along with increasing hb which will overcome you weakness. Do this for some time & you will feel the difference. Ayurveda is known as the best science to help you control your diabetes in a natural, safer & better way with no known side effects. For more info share your blood sugar level reports and other medication details if you are taking any to understand your case better

Because of hypothyroidism missing periods and gaining weight. Please any suggestions Thanks Preet.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
lybrate-user, Hypothyroidism if not well controlled with proper dosage of Thyroxine is bound to affect menstrual cycle and cause weight gain. Only option is to see that adequate dose of thyroxine is taken and TSH is maintained between 3 to 4 mU/L, then only all the symptoms will be in control and efforts to reduce weight also are likely to be successful. Hence, make sure that TSH levels are as mentioned. Thanks.

I am 19 years old and I have major diseases in my body like Cholesterol, hypothyroid, high pressure sweating problem. So my question is how can I get rid of this diseases.

Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS), MD - Ayurveda
Ayurveda, Bhavnagar
You firstly stop causative factors from your life style. Like drinking too much cold water, eat too much sweets, day sleep, water after meal, lack of exercise, curd, menda etc. I will need your detail history. Till you can follow this * start drinking hot water * stop day sleep * start any exercise in morning, like suryanamaskar, walking, joging, sports * drink juice of turmeric n ginger with honey * take jau barley, instead of ghenhu wheat. * use cow ghee n milk only * boild rise in open pot, don't use cocker. Withdraw water if rice.

I am 41 years old. Kindly tell me is obemac is safe to use. Or it has some side effects? I am a hyper thyroid patient. please suggest soon.

PDDM, MHA, MBBS
General Physician, Nashik
Thanks for the query. Obemac is a fat burner. But, most fat burners in my experience have majorly not worked. Most people take it as a “trial and error” product meaning that they only find out that most often it's not really effective after trying it. Keep in mind that obemac is not recommended for people with cardiac problems. Most people claim to have experience little or no difference at all after using a fat burner. Like any fat burner there are chances of side effects. Give your body a chance to lose weight by natural and healthy ways. That's more lasting.

Yes definitely. Your sugar levels are way above normal. You will gradually start experiencing ill- effects of such high sugar, as almost all your body organs will be affected. Please consult a endocrinologist urgently.

Pls give me answer to this am eating dates daily it will causes diabetes or any other problems.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Mr., Thanks for the query. Diabetes is caused by deficiency of insulin secretion plus resistance to its action. Resistance occurs due to excess fat (being over weight or obese). Other contributing factors are inactivity, taking junk foods, pastries, bakery items and foods made out of maida. Plus excess consumption of sweetened aerated drinks like colas. There is also positive family history which contributes to a great extent. Eating healthy food is never a problem. Dates eating (unless one consumes too many) is unlikely to be causing any problem. It will not lead to diabetes. Thanks.
