India is the capital for diabetes mellitus (sugar) in the world. So no need to be shocked or worried about it. It is only a metabilic disorder. If you understand it in a scientific way and modify your lifestyle accordingly, it is no more a problem. The disease can not be cured. But can be kept under control and escape from its ill effects by obeying the following 3 mantras; 1. Proer diet 2. Brisk walking everyday for 50 minutes at a stretch 3. Taking tablets prescribed by a qualified doctor and fllow-up periodically. When compared to the ill effects of uncontrolled blood sugar for a prolonged period, the side-effects of antidiabetic drugs are very very negligible. Moreover, the recent antidiabetic medicines are safer than the older ones. Get an appointment of a diabetologist immediately.

My brother-in-law (age-32) couple of days ago diagnosed with diabetes (RBS above 500 and Hba1C 10) .Now along with medications, he stopped taking white rice and refined flour and started including millets in all the three meals. Is this a good move? And he had kidney stones previously. Now can he take palak and tomato?

Dear lybrate-user Going by your history it looks like you might be having an endometriotic cyst. I would suggest getting a scan done to evaluate the cyst in the ovary. Do get your husband's semen analysis. As far as your pregnancy is concerned You can proceed with taking medication for egg development and then try naturally or get an Intra uterine Insemination (IUI) based on the test results. Good luck.

For hypothyroidism only treatment is to take adequate dose of thyroxine for lifetime. There is no option other than this. If treatment is helping then tsh levels should be around 3 to 4 milli units/ml, that usually helps in controlling all the symptoms and the person lives absolutely normal life.

My T3 and T4 level is 94.12 and 6.20 respectively. TSH level is 4.812. Whether I should take any medicine?

Better you start taking Homeopathic treatment. Because it is the only mode of treatment that will help you to get rid of it. Otherwise in allopathic treatment, it will never end and you need to take life long medicines with increasing dosage after every 2-5 yrs. Now choice is yours. If you have queries, you can please let me know. Take care :)

Do not get worried about the lenght and girth of penis as the sensetive part in female organ is sensetive upto 3-5 cm, it mean that that if length after erection is achieved, then there is nothing to worry. Exercise regularly, eat healthy and balanced diet, and stay positive.

Yoga and diet will definitely help in diabetes. There are some asana and pranayam which will help you to control your blood sugar level, like 1 ardh matsyendrasana 2 purna matsyendrasana 3 vakrasana 4 kapalbhati and many more diet has key role in diabetes. Diabetic diet is different for person to person. It is depend of person lifestyle, his blood sugar level. Medication and many more factor. But here are some common tips 1 eat high fiber food like oats, bran, sprouts, beans 2 avoid eating refine flour and its product 3 eat fresh fruits instead of fruit juice. 4 after taking medicines take your meal within half hour.

Mr. Lybrate-user, to keep diabetes in check first and foremost is to take appropriate drugs as prescribed by your doctor. Secondly regular daily exercise of more than 1 hour is essential. Plus restricted diet that gives exact calories based on ideal body weight, blood sugar levels and extent of daily exercise. Avoid eating sweets, direct sugar or gur, deep fried foods, junk foods and pastries. Consume more of green leafy vegetables, salads and permitted fruits. Refrain from alcohol and smoking.

It is borderline but single reading doesn't have any value. Check hba1c level. R you diabetic and taking medicines or just checked fasting first time and came 115?

Mr. Lybrate-user, if blood sugar level is not well controlled, then it causes damage to small blood vessels, which affects multiple organs including penile muscles leading to erectile dysfunction, so it is essential to control diabetes effectively with fasting sugar level closer to 100 mg and pp 150 to 160 mg and hba1c% < 7. Thanks for the question.

lybrate-user, If proper treatment is going on with adequate dosage of thyroxine then TSH is maintained between 3 to 4 mU/L. In that situation all the symptoms are in check, plus efforts to control weight are also successful. Looking at your weight and height there grade 2 obesity with a BMI of 36.97 kgs/M2. You are carrying 38 kgs extra weight. Please make a serious effort to reduce weight by at least 5 to 8 %. If your baby did not have hypothyroidism at birth, then it is unlikely develop at least for now. Thanks.

These type of misadventures can be really dangerous, leave apart the miracle. God has granted us a beautiful life to live that itself is the biggest miracle, so we should not do things to keep it at risk. I suggest you should advice him not to take such deliberate risk with his health. Human insulin injections are scheduled prescription drugs which should not be taken without advice of a doctor, if anything goes wrong, not only the person using it without prescription, but also the chemist from where he has procured the medicine can be legally prosecuted for the harm to life it may cause.
