I am a diabetic since last 2 years. I am very worried. I tried ayurvedic medication but nothing worked. Prescribe some medicine for normal daily life.

General Physician, Delhi
You need to get your fasting blood glucose and hba1c checked first, along with your lipid profile. There are a lot of anti-diabetic medicines available in the market and choice of medicine varies from person to person. So get your tests done and visit your physician at the earliest. Life lstyle modification has a great role to play too. Avoid all starchy and sweet things, fatty foods to be avoided too. Quit smoking and alchohol. Exercise daily for at least 40 minutes.

I'm a sugar patient, frequently I'm getting (every month) acidity. How do I get rid of it?
Mr. Lybrate-user, hyperacidity may be occurring either due to food habits, smoking, alcohol, excess tea or coffee. At times remaining on empty stomach for long time also can cause that. To reduce acidity you may take small quantity of food more frequently (every 2 - 3 hrs), total intake not exceed the recommended daily allowance. Plus avoiding all the above mentioned triggers. Exercise also helps in controlling acidity. There are antacids and other drugs which may be useful. Some times a bacterium h pylori could be also responsible. Plus good control of diabetes is also very important.

As per your height, your weight should be 60 kgs. You are 40 kgs above your ideal body weight. Diet & exercise have 90 % failure rate. Only thing that will work for you is bariatric (weight loss) surgery.

I have a diabetic patient since 2012. How can I cure my diabetic without any medicine.
Mr. Lybrate-user, diabetes mellitus is a disease occurring due to either lack of insulin or resistance to its action or both. Hence the treatment is give drugs that stimulate insulin secretion or reduce the resistance to its action by giving oral anti diabetes drugs or use insulin itself. This disease can only be controlled by drug treatment plus diet and exercise. There is no cure even with medicine. You will have to continue the treatment for lifetime. It is good to maintain sugar levels - like fasting closer to 100 mg, pp 150 to 160 mg and hba1c% <7. This helps in either preventing or postponing the long term complications of diabetes. With regards.

Thyroid report is fine continue with medication. There are lot of factors which affect conception other than thyroid, lifestyle, diet, stress are most common among them. And in many cases even if all reports are fine, it may take time in conceiving, more than a year. So she should try for few more months, making lifestyle & diet modifications.

Blood sugar variations are very common. The cause may be 1. Not following proper dietary restrictions. 2. Not taking the medicines /insulin at the time adviced. 3. Any fever, stress, infection. 4. Reaction of other medicines, not applicable in your case as you are taking insulin. You need to consult with an expert and rectify the problem with proper coordination. I have also attached a painless continuous glucose monitoring device and tuned the dose of medicine /insulin and diet, and achieved control in many patients.

Diabetes: Know About It to Better Control It

Diabetes is usually associated with the insulin and glucose absorption of the body. This disease can be of several types and is often referred to as Diabetes Mellitus. It is basically a digestive disorder where the body is not able to transport the glucose absorbed from the food to the cells, due to a lack of proper insulin production. This makes the blood sugar level rise. This is a long term disease that involves metabolism and an imbalance in the blood sugar levels of the body. While type 2 diabetes is the most common with 90% of all cases suffering from this type, type 1 affects roughly 10% of the diabetes patients.

Read on to know more about diabetes so that you can control it better:

Type 1 Diabetes: In this kind of diabetes, the body does not produce sufficient insulin, which makes it produce symptoms like increased thirst, frequent urination, blurry vision due to changes in the lens of the eyes and vomiting as well as deep breathing for patients who have reached a very advanced or severe stage. The best treatment plan for this kind of diabetes includes tweaking one's diet to cut out excess fat, salt and sugar. Further, the patient will have to ensure that the glucose levels are monitored and regulated with insulin injections and regular blood tests.

Type 2 Diabetes: When the cells of the body do not react appropriately to insulin it can lead to malfunction. This is a progressive disease that is known to get worse with the passage of time. Patients suffering from this disease usually have to take insulin tablets on a daily basis. The symptoms include fatigue, blurred vision and excessive hunger. The best treatment is to exercise regularly and follow a healthy diet plan. This disease can also increase the risk of cardiovascular diseases and other serious ailments.

Gestational Diabetes: This kind of diabetes affects expecting mothers. If the pregnant patient has high amount of glucose in the body, there is not enough insulin that can transport all the excess glucose to the cells. This can lead to gestational diabetes. Diet and exercise are the best ways to control this condition. It may also lead to complications for the baby at the time of birth.

Prediabetes: Many patients who are suffering from diabetes type 2 often suffer from a condition called prediabetes where the cells of the body start developing insulin resistance. This phase also implies some amount of damage to the heart and circulatory system.

Treating diabetes on time is a matter of regulating and keeping a check on your blood sugar levels even as you maintain your healthy weight and lifestyle with a good diet and exercise.

Classical Homeopathic remedies for diabetes include Uranium Nitricum, Phosphoric Acid, Syzygium Jambolanum and Cephalandra Indica. These medications are either used stand alone or along with other medications as adjunct. Homeopathic medicines look to cure the inherent disorder, and do not have any side effects, thus are safe for diabetics.

Patients with hypothyroidism suffered from hypovitaminosis d with hypocalcaemia. Moreover, the positive significant correlation between each of serum vit d and calcium with thyroid hormones and that negative significant correlation with tsh levels, suggested that deficiency of serum vit d and calcium levels were significantly associated with degree and severity of the hypothyroidism which encourage the advisability of vit d supplementation. Screening for vitamin d deficiency and serum calcium levels recommended for all hypothyroid patients.

Mr. Lybrate-user, what are present fasting, pp and hba1c% readings? that will give me an idea about what kind of control needs to be established or any additional treatment to be given. Also inform bp readings. Plus looking at your weight and height your bmi is 27.18 kg/m2, signifying over weight. Your ideal body weight should be about 59 kgs. Tis als contributes to improper control due to increased insulin resistance. Weight reduction will also take care of acidity and bp control.

My mother age is 72yrs, she is suffering diabetes since 15 yrs, she is using medicines regularly, last month her fbs is 62, plbs is 103, last month she used gliminyelem2, this month physician wrote to use medicine gliminyle mv1, is it okay to use the gliminyle mv1.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
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.

Mr. Lybrate-user, in my opinion honey is not recommended in a diabetes patient, as it is another form of sucrose. It contains 50% fructose + 50% glucose. Plus some vitamins and antioxidants. Suppose if some one still wants to use it, then there has to be a very strict blood sugar control with fasting around 100 mg, pp 150 to 160 mg, hba1c% <6.8. Thanks for the question.
