Mr. Lybrate-user, if there are no symptoms then no need to take any treatment. But you can take certain precautions like avoiding organ meat, aerated sweetened drink, alcohol, sweet corn syrup, high fat foods, certain fishes like sardines, trout, herring, salmon, mussels, mushroom etc. Consume more of green leafy vegetables, fruits, milk and milk products and low fat cheese. By adapting these things uric acid level can be reduced.

I am suffering from diabetes which medicines you like to advice for reverse diabetes ?

MBBS, Diploma in Diabetology, DDM, CCACCD

Allopathy does not have any medicines for reversal of diabetes. However, i would like to caution you against falling into any trap for ayurved "babas" who give "bhasm / powder / bitter pills" for reversal of diabetes. These contain heavy metals and steroids which destroy your kidneys and give you life-long dialysis. If you take your prescribed medicines on time. Follow a regular diet and exercise schedule. Get your blood tests done as advised. And never miss any follow-up with the doctor. Diabetes will be easily manageable :)

How to prevent blood pressure and sugar?
The way to remain free from high blood pressure and diabetes (t2), is to adapt a modified life style. Which includes: 1) regular exercise and practicing pranayam & yogasanas, 2) avoid smoking and alcohol, 3) avoid deep fried foods and too much of sweets, 4) intake of table salt to be restricted to 2g a day, 5) consume more green salad and fruits and breads made of whole grain flour. If family history is there more care has to be taken.

Mr Ganesh Kumar, since you have T1 DM, I am sure you are on Insulin injections. By now you must have learnt that Insulin injections is the treatment for T1 DM. In addition to that you have to take a properly planned diet that provides exact calories based on your wight, physical activity (daily exercise) and blood sugar levels. Plus you will have to avoid sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods and pastries. Also refrain from smoking and alcohol. Do regular exercise for at least 1 hour a day. In short you have to adapt a modified lifestyle.Plus do self monitoring of blood glucose wit the help of a glucometer at home. This is essential to keep a track of your glucose levels in order to avoid severe hypoglycemia.
