My wife is diebetic since 40 years, bp/sugar is under controle. But she has too much pain and swelling in both knees. She walks within the house only. Knees can not be replaced as she has multiple blocks & heart does not permit that.

It depends on d set up. In our set up I have replaced both knee with multiple valvular cardiac disease n also in patients wit optd for bypass surgery also. Think positive . If she will not walk. Then cardiac function will also compromised. Even newer drugs n anesthesia permits any high risk pt. Optd comfortably.

If your sugars are rising to 250, you are probably diabetic patient .... unless your glucometer was faulty. Please do a fasting and post prandial(PP) blood sugar in the lab along with HbA1c to determine the extent of diabetes.

Hello lybrate user as you asked about your problems related to diabetes and bp as well as gastric discomfort, I would like to advise you that your metabolism isn't pretty and toxins are accumulated in the form of acid and gaseous flatulence with upcoming acidic belching and cause of gaseous pressure to upward on your chest and heart. It gives you heart pain and sometimes located at your under chest. You have low hb about 7% so it is very low. You had not mentioned about your sugar levels as fasting and pp. You should have consult with ayurveda doctor who will help you for your problems.

CAN INSULIN RESISTANCE BE REVERSED? When I went for a regular check my gp saw the thickening on neck area and ordered a fasting insulin test it was 26. I haven't gone back to him yet. By googling this I have seen insulin resistance as the cause and also if I go without a meal for 6 hours I get sweaty and tired and crave food. My fasting bg is 78 and pp is 129.

Hello Mr. lybrate-user, Dark discoloration and thickening of skin are signs of insulin resistance and it is known as acanthosis nigricans. This can be reversed by following healthy lifestyle. You should do regular physical activities and also try to follow balanced meal. Try to avoid more of simple carbs such as sugar, cold drinks, sweets and refined wheat products as these can ellevate sugar spikes and will further lead to more insulin resistance. This condition if not addressed can lead to Diabetes. To avoid complications you should also keep screening your blood glucose profile regularly. Take care!
