I am sorry to hear about your concern but will be happy to assist you. Diabetes remission is quite a new idea. A lot of research is needed before we fully understand it. We don't have enough evidence that remission is permanent. It needs to be maintained and in many cases, diabetes can come back, which is why it is so important to continue your diabetes appointments while in remission.

How to increase blood flow towards legs. And how to remove blockage on right leg.
I am sorry to hear about your concern but will be happy to assist you. Seniors tend to suffer from poor blood circulation in the legs due to several factors like becoming more sedentary, thickening of the aorta, and decreased sensitivity in baroreceptors. A condition caused by hardened arteries, atherosclerosis is one of the most common causes of poor blood circulation.

My mother’s age is approximately 70 years at present, she is patient of diabetes and high blood. Pressure ever since she was of the age of 45 years (no medication at that time was given to her for b.p and diabetes), but she was diagnosed for both these diseases in year 2011 only, when she felt pain in heart region and in the left hand side in the back. She was diagnosed for two artery blockages i.e for 95% and 60% in angiography. An stunt was put to clear the 95% blockage. The medicine for high b.p, diabetes, and heart started and continued since then only. She is also the patient of weak digestion approximately for the last 25 years. I.e. Her routine motion in the morning does not take place in time. It comes out hard in the beginning and becomes loose at second or third motion, which takes place at very short interval after first motion. For that norflox tz/ lomofen / metronidazole is given to her to stop the loose/ dysenteric motions. This hardening and loosening of motions process continues even now also. (she requires your treatment) she is also the patient of gall bladder stone (approximately 22 mm). Which normally remain silent but she requires your treatment. Since the month of january 2020 she was again having the symptoms of heart attack (diagnosed in trop t test for heart at king george medical college lucknow). Doctors at king george medical college lucknow advised for angiography but due to weak condition of patient we requested to conduct the same after holi festival in march 2020. So to prevent any heart attack risk the medicines were increased by the doctor. I.e. Earlier since the year 2011 (after stunting in artery) she was taking the allopathic medicine for high blood pressure, diabetes and ecosprin for heart. This heavy medication has made her weak further and her eyesight has become very weak i.e almost blurred (she requires your treatment. Here it is pertinent to mention that new lenses have already been put in her eyes after the cataract surgery 10 to 15 years back. Since april 2020 we started homeopathic medicine tonicard, and after seeing your you tube video we also started arnica montana q, crataegus oxyacantha q, terminale arjuna q. All the three mother tinctures, as medicines for her heart blockage disease, so that at the time of her next trip t test she would become free from any heart blockage. She is feeling also better i.e. Less pain in heart region, with these medicines. (she requires your treatment) she is also the patient of trembling hands, i.e. When she holds anything in her hands, her hands start shaking/ trembling and goods fall from her hands. 7 years back her brain mri revealed some blood clotting in her brain, expectedly due to her undiagnosed increased sugar level (due to no medicine) in the age of 45 to 60 years. (she requires your treatment). Kindly provide treatment for her extreme weakness also. Her knees are so week that she can not sit and stand up on her own, so she passes her stool and urine, in almost standing position. (she requires your treatment).

Endovascular VS Vascular Surgery - Know The Difference!

Endovascular VS Vascular Surgery - Know The Difference!
In our bodies, the vascular system is composed of vessels. This system is comprised of a complex network of veins and arteries. The arteries transport oxygenated blood away from the heart and spread it throughout our bodies and veins brings the deoxygenated blood (oxygen-poor) back to the heart for purification. Whenever this complicated process gets disturbed, pain, dysfunction of the system, and other complications may occur.

Most common complications among all are:
1. Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm: This condition is when there is a bulge formed in the weak area of the largest artery in the abdomen and keeps on increasing with each pressure flow of blood from that artery. This condition weakens the artery further and massive internal bleeding may occur.

2. Carotid Artery Disease - Stroke: This condition arises when the main blood vessels flowing blood to the brain develops a plague caused due to hardening of the arteries (atherosclerosis). The continuous increase of plague can cause a stroke.

3. Peripheral Arterial Disease: This condition occurs when the flow of oxygen-rich blood is insufficient to the lower limbs of the body due to hardening of the arteries in that area. This can cause difficulty in walking, foot ulcers, infections and can even lead to amputation.

The complication of these types are corrected by the vascular surgeon with the process is commonly known as vascular surgery. However, this condition is sometimes medically managed by an innovative, less invasive procedure called Endovascular surgery.

Vascular Surgery-
Vascular surgery is generally the traditional surgery that corrects the diseases outside of the heart and the brain. This procedure is more invasive as it involves incisions that are surgical in nature. Vascular surgery comprises of the surgery of the aorta, carotid arteries, and other small diametric arteries. This surgery also involves surgery of veins for treating various conditions such as varicose veins and May-Thurner syndrome.

Endovascular Surgery:
However, this type of surgery is an innovative way to treat medical conditions related to the vascular system. For instance, during the procedure of treating the Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm, it involves making a small cut near the hip area and inserting the endovascular graft through the arteries and is positioned inside the aorta, in a catheter, which is a flexible, long, and narrow tube. The endovascular graft is a tube device made up of special fiber and is framed within stainless steel self-expanding stents. The grafts expand and seal off the aneurysm. This stops the internal bleeding the system and the graft remain in the aorta permanently.

This method has a short recovery time, smaller incisions, less discomfort, less stress on the heart and has fewer risks. This surgery is appropriate for the patient who is at high
risk of complications.

Take Away-
Diseases related to artery and veins are now being treated with various methods such as angiography, stenting, sclerotherapy in various countries. These days vascular surgeons have become proficient with the endovascular surgical methods. Endovascular surgery is durable and less painful and stressful when viewed with the context of vascular surgery. However, the cost of staying longer at the hospitals is somewhat got balanced by the high cost of imaging equipment and other high financial expenses in the endovascular surgery.

Plaque is made up of cholesterol deposits. Plaque buildup causes the inside of the arteries to narrow over time. This process is called atherosclerosis. But we have to look into the details of the problem. Let's have a detailed discussion to ensure proper treatment.
