Dust allergy is partly genetic and partly environmental. Thus it never goes away. With better, less dusty environment  the extent if the problem gets reduced. Medicines help to downregulate the immune response of your body to these environmental allergens. Long term lifestyle  changes with gradually tapering medication  helps to tackle chronic sinus problems.  Start taking Steam inhalation twice a day. *For chronic allergic rhinosinusitis you will need to take a long term course of antibiotics  together  with Nasal sprays. *You will need to avoid dusty environment  and dust mites, animal dander etc. Regular cleaning of AC air filters. Wearing mask while driving 2 wheelers/working in dusty  areas Medical  management  is done for 3 months and then patients  condition is reviewed.  Intermittent treatment is not beneficial  in the long run. Around 30 %of people with allergic rhinitis  will develop Asthma if not treated. But majority of patients with asthma are allergic to dust. Active treatment  of nasal allergy reduces Asthma attacks and medicine requirements. This improve  quality of life.

Since you are overweight, instead of pioglitazone we can start other medication which may help in weight loss.

Hello, Thanks for the query. All the drugs presently used in treating diabetes are quite safe including pioglitazone. In a well controlled person fasting glucose should be < 100 mg or closer to 100 mg, PP 150 to 170 mg & HbA1c% < 6.8%. So please see that these levels are achieved. Thanks.

I have been taking Glitaris M7. 5 (Pioglitazone 7.5 mg) as anti diabetic since more than 10 years. My endocrinologist insists that I should continue with it. I understand that Pioglitazone improves body's ability to use insulin to lower blood sugar. However, I read that Glimepiride also helps tissues respond better to insulin. It means both have similar functions (advantages). My question is, as Pioglitazone has more side effects than similar medicines (ref. Literature), should I switch over to Glimepiride as a substitute to Pioglitazone?

Dear Lybrate user, I understand that you have been doing quite a bit of research on the medications, but I just want to make one correction. You are right about pioglitazone, but not the glimepiride whose main function is to stimulate insulin production from the pancreas and not to reduce insulin resistance. This is done by mostly metformin and pioglitazone. Hence you are taking combination of 2 tablets with similar function. If your sugars are controlled and you are not getting any side-effects to the medications, I don't see any reason you need to think of discontinuing the medication. Having said that pioglitazone can be associated with water retention in the body and weight gain, If you feel that you are putting on weight or having swollen legs, then you might need to consider stopping pioglitazone and think of the alternative.

Hi lybrate-user. Actually metformin is great drug, which actually decreases insulin resistance. May I know why it doesn't suit you? Hope you are following diabetic diet and exercise. Hba1c is not under control. I suggest you to do fbs and ppbs so that we can know which one to target. I often prefer linagliptin instead of teneligliptin as it doesn't have sideedfects .in my patients. Any queries you can contact me.
