Avoid sitting cross legged. Avoid squatting- quadriceps exercises- lie straight, make a towel role and put it under the knee, press the keen against the role, hold it for 20 secs. Repeat 20 times twice a day. This will help relieve some pain. Core strengthening exercise- straight leg raised with toes turned outward, repeat 10 times, twice a day. Hams stretching- lie straight, take the leg up, pull the feet towards yourself, with a elastic tube or normal belt. Repeat 10 times, twice a day. Sports taping- stretch the tape from both ends and apply on the affected area contrast fomentation (hot and cold).

What are the main symptoms of diabetes and how it can be cured and what exercise useful to cure it.
Mr Azad, There are mainly 2 types of diabetes T1 and T2. Most common variety is T2 DM, occurring due to deficiency of Insulin , secreted by beta cells of pancreas or resistance to its action or both. Plus being over weight and inactivity contribute to it. Usually does not cause any symptoms, hence many persons do not come to know they have diabetes. When fully developed may cause excess urination, excess hunger, excess thirst, unexplained tiredness and weight loss. This disease can only be controlled by taking proper drugs or insulin injections. There is no cure for it. Treatment has to be for lifetime. Person has to adapt a modified lifestyle like : taking restricted diet matching ideal body weight, exercising regularly, avoiding too much of sweets, junk foods, pastries, alcohol and smoking. Exercising 1 hour a day, consuming more of green leafy vegetables and salads.

Hello Sir, You are doing an excellent job by walking. Any sort of physical activity is advisible in diabetic patients. Ideally a diabetic patient should 45 min of moderate exercise - like brisk walking, jogging, cycling, swimming etc. Exercise can be done at any time. So you can continue your evening walks. Hope this helps you. Thank you.

Hi Anam Numbness of your hands could be related to thyroid problem. There might also be deficiency of vitamin B-12. You should start exercising daily for 30 minutes. simple aerobics will be enough. Start taking calcium, vitamin-D and Vitamin B-12 supplements. One tablet of calcium daily and One for Vitamin B-12 daily For vit.-D take cholecalciferol sachet weekly for 6 weeks. This solution is for now but it wont be permanent. For a permanent solution your thyroid problem needs to be treated and that is POSSIBLE with HOMOEOPATHIC medicines; you will be cured and there wont be any need of taking thyronorm. Your migraine will also get cured. For this a proper consultation is required so that your case can be analysed and treatment given accordingly. For this you can consult any good homoeopath or me as you are in Delhi only. Otherwise you can make good use of Lybrate.

Dear Lybrate User, One of the major nutritional substance required for human body is carbohydrate. We take carbohydrate in the form of rice, wheat, sugar etc. The complex molecules of carbohydrate are broken down into simple glucose molecules during digestion & released in the blood stream to be absorbed by the muscle cells. Muscle cells utilise the glucose molecules to release energy by breaking down those glucose molecules. Insulin hormone plays a vital role in the absorption of the glucose molecules by the muscle cells. In abnormal conditions, either due to less production of insulin or due to resistance to insulin, the process of absorption of glucose by the muscles comes to a stand still. The glucose molecules remains in the bloodstream which results in the increase in the blood sugar level. The failure of utilisation of the glucose molecules by the muscle cells results in production of less energy than normal condition. This is externally manifested as the fatigue & tiredness of the patient. This excess amount of blood sugar compels the kidney to function more than normal level in order to excrete the blood sugar molecules through urine. As a result the patient suffers from frequent urination. This abnormal condition is clinically known as DIABETES MELLITUS. Once a patient is diagnosed with Diabetes he has to take regular medicine to keep his blood sugar level within normal limits. However, the patient does not need to take medicine unless his/her Post. Prandial Blood Sugar level reaches 200. If Post. Prandial Blood Sugar level reaches 200 then patient can take Homoeopathic Mother Tincture GYMNEMA SYLVESTRA Q, 30 drops, thrice daily, after meals, in a cup of water. Along with intake of medicines the patient need to walk at least 1 hour daily without any interval. In order to decrease the intake of carbohydrate in diet the patient should avoid rice, sweet dishes, fruits, cold drinks, fast foods, alcoholic beverages, potato etc

My aunt suffering from thyroid? Whats it's major cause and what's its precautions? We can cure from that or not?

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Mr. Lybrate-user, by saying" suffering from thyroid" are talking about hypothyroidism? if so then the treatment is to give correct dose of thyroxine tablets daily. Dose will depend upon body weight and tsh levels. Plus patient has to avoid soy beans, soy containing products, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, radish, peanuts, mustard and coffee. Should consume more of green leafy vegetables, salads and fruits. Use whole grain flour for making chapati and roti, avoid refined flour like maida. Plus should exercise daily for at least 1 hour. This is a thyroxine deficiency disorder, hence supplement of that hormone is required daily, so there is no cure. Tablets have to be taken for lifetime.

lybrate-user, Hypothyroidism means our thyroid gland starts producing less and less of hormone thyroxine. This hormone is essential for development and day to day functioning of brain, plus takes part in multiple metabolic reactions in the body. Therefore, it deficiency causes multiple problems like - weight gain, slow heart rate, intolerance to cold, dry skin, dry hair, hair fall, irregular menstruation, excess flow, infertility, abortions, miscarriages, anxiety and depressive tendency, joint and muscle pains etc. To find out if one has hypothyroidism a thyroid assay has to be done. If hypothyroidism is detected, thyroxine supplement has to be taken for lifetime. Thanks.

I am a diabetic since 18 years aged 57 years. At present I am taking metride 2mg (glimpride 2mg metformin 500mg) before breakfast, Janumet before lunch (sitagliptin 50mg metformin 500mg) and metride 1mg ((glimpride 1mg metformin 500mg) before dinner. My question is whether same salt of other reputed manufacturer can be substituted with above medicines, because some times cost is about half of the medicine, If no, what can be the possible impact of changing the medicines without doctors advice.

Yes, you can change the medicines with suitable substitutes if the cost difference is huge. But, simply put the cost is often decided by various factors including quality. After all you cannot compare a sony tv and micromax tv both same size but cost is half. The bottom line is, that you sugars should be in target. Just taking medicines for the sake of taking some treatment won't help you to prevent the complications of diabetes, a dreaded disease. So, try them out for a month or two, if the results are same, continue it, if not, then please get back to the original drugs.

Hye, Thanks for the query. Weight is very dependent not only on metabolism but genetics as well. Just taking supplements will not help if your diet is not good. Also even if you are diagnosed to be having hyperthyroidism, your diet is plays a very important role in maintaining health. So start by improving your diet first. Gaining weight requires you to eat more calories than you burn. Although fried or sugary foods are calorie dense, eating them exclusively won’t provide enough nutrition to keep you energetic and healthy. Eating several meals and snacks throughout the day and including nutritious, calorie-dense food will help you gain weight healthfully. Weight gain depends primarily on your genetics, age, weight and activity level. To gain weight, you need to eat more calories than you burn. If you’re not used to eating large quantities of food at one time, you may find it difficult to fit all of your calories into three meals per day. Eating nutritious, calorie-dense foods every two to three hours will help you get your calories in without making you overly full and sluggish. If you tend to forget to eat or are always on the go, bring calorie-dense snacks such as eggs, mixed nuts, fruits and dairy. Nutritious, calorie-dense foods provide essential vitamins and minerals, which promote good health and energy. Adding ghee and cream to foods adds additional calories for very little extra physical bulk. Fruit juice, masala milk provides crucial nutrients. Meal-replacement shakes and protein powder sound like good options but also remember that unless your diet is not planned sadly they won't help.
