My mother is 60 years old and she is diabetic patient from last 5 years taking medicine. What worries her lot is the burning sensation in both the feet especially at night. It becomes very difficult to bring in control as whole night she can't sleep for that reason. Kindly suggest appropriate remedies.

gfr 53 is low, means kidneys are affected due to long term diabetes. Apart from gliclazide what other medications are you taking? how are sugar levelsand hba1c%. If diabetes is in check nephropathy can also be controlled. Do you have high blood pressure, if so what are the drugs for that? few precautions restrict salt intake and do not eat more proteins. Please inform me otherdetails.

Is there any difference to have blood sugar test at home through a glucometer device rather than testing at a professional lab. Also, which company's glucometer device is the most accurate one. Thank you Sir/Madam.

If there are 2-3 patients in home or if someone is on Insulin then only buy glucometer but if your sugar is under control then checking it in lab once a 2mths is good for you instead of frequently n unnecessarily checking on glucometer. Regards.

Mr. Lybrate-user, if you do not have diabetes, but if family history of diabetes is there, then you need to take precautions so as to avoid developing diabetes in future. One to avoid that is by adapting modified life style- which means taking a balanced diet, avoiding sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries, other bakery items, sweetened aerated drinks (colas), avoiding highly processed food products, fructose corn syrup containing products, high fat containing milk products and red meat. Consume a good deal of green leafy vegetables and salads. Use whole grain food products than refined foods. Also refrain from alcohol and smoking. Regular exercise of at least 1 hour so as to maintain normal weight, (your bmi is 24.91 kgs/m2). If this is done then diabetes can be prevented or onset can be delayed. Thanks.

Does he have any other medical problems. Isolated reduction of EF in such young people is rare until he has cardiomyopathy. This is again secondary to many systemic disease or primary or due to other diseases of the heart. More information Will be required before any thing can be said.

If using standard glucometer and one follows the proper procedure advised like storage, expiry, pricking technique, periodical test for control (standardisation) expiry norm self monitoring glucometer is accurate and reliable. By personal experience I found much better than old laboratory colorimetry method. Some books may differ.

Hi I'm 24 recently diagnosed with type 2 diabetes I checked my blood test of hba1C MY range was 9.7 and very next day again I checked my blood test the fasting sugar levels are 184 and post lunch it was 287 and I approached doctor and he gave me tablet called Glicalz -M I'm taking before 15 mins of my breakfast .and I maintained strict diet and after 10 days I went for blood test again my sugar levels are 120 before breakfast and after breakfast it is 147. Can any one suggest me if I maintain same diet and exercise can I stop taking medicines? Please help me. Because what I read is 120 before breakfast and 147 after breakfast is called prediabetes So prediabetes can be overcome with change in diet and regular exercise so please help me can I stop taking Glicalz-m.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. I have gone through the details given. Pre-diabetes is diagnosed when a person has FBG is 108 to 125 mg, PP 141 to 199 mg & HbA1c% 5.9 to 6.4. But these levels are without taking any medication. The levels you are referring are with medication. In your case already diabetes is diagnosed and the levels mentioned have been achieved because of taking medication. The moment you stop treatment blood glucose levels will shoot up. Please understand if a person is in pre-diabetes state, then he can prevent developing diabetes for a considerable time. But once diabetes is diagnosed there is no way of achieving normal glucose levels without proper medication plus diet and exercise. If you have any doubts please come back. Also look at your HbA1c%. Thanks.

I am mske 45 diabetic since last 10 years. I always feels tired. I am taking diapride m2 twice daily and humalog 70/30 insulin 30 point morning and 20 in evening. My fasting is 170.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Your diabetes is not under control which is why you feel tired. Check your fbs, 2hr ppbs and hba1c from a good lab and inform privately. Now you make humalog 30 units in the night also and take glucomet sr 1 gm twice daily and glimi 2 mg once in the morning and report. Did you mean diapride m2 two tabs in the morning, which is incorrect dosage.(that is 4 mg glimipride and 500 metformin) it is not as easy task to control blood sugar in the desired normal range. Whatever we eat is metabolised to sugar in the body to provide energy for our daily activities. For the absolute control, one has to monitor his / her blood sugar at regular intervals (self-monitoring of blood glucose? smbg). Though difficult, this can be done by a glucometer and keep a record. Get an idea of fasting sugar (fbs) and 2 hours after food (ppbs) and check before dinner and after every major food. The basic idea is to reduce the food intake to 1/3 of what you take now. The dictum of sugar control is diet, exercise, diet + medicine and at later stage medicine+ insulin will be needed. For sugar control there is the need for regular advice and follow up. Just one time consultation or advice is not enough to guide a diabetic in scientifically & medically correct manner. For giving you regular follow up you ask me privately with all details like your daily eating pattern and medicines you take. I assure you a proper guidance. If you keep in touch.

lybrate-user, During pregnancy, there is some extra 25% urine production, plus pressure of growing fetus on the bladder does lead to frequent urination. It is fairly normal. Plus as the fetus grows its movements are bound to be felt frequently. Thanks.

No, they are lifestyle diseases and cannot be cured. They are the silent killers and the biggest epidemic mankind is facing. They can be controlled within the target through dietary changes and exercise. If, those measures are not enough, medicines should be taken. Please revert back with details of your condition and all relevant information like tests and medicine you are taking.

There is no magic medicine for Diabetes. Though some herbs etc claim to control this, there is no data to prove these claims. Today in the name of Organic/Natural/Ayurveda etc. People are selling all sorts of stuff. With no research/tests/ certification. While such juices may have general health benefits. Its better to continue you proper medicine side by side.

Add sinnamon, black berry seeds powder and sweet potato. These are all natural sugar reducing agents. But you may add some more allopathic or ayurvedic drugs if natural drugs are not sufficient to control it. Also control diet of carbohydrates and fats and walk for an hour daily.
