I am type dibetic and using huminsilin 30/70 and 40iu per unit. The dose is 25 units twice daily. Is there any pen alternative to this insulin. Is there any drug alternative to it. Kindly advice.

Although there is no alternative to insulin but being a homoeopath I will recommend you a homoeo medicine which you can take alongwith your present treatment and I think u will surely benefit vincetoxinum ( adel ) 10 drops in 1 glass fresh water empty stomach.

You can continue with omega-3 capsules.This problem is not related to diabetes. It could be OA knee which can be confirmed with X-ray of the knee joint.

Dear lybrate-user! simply checking the Blood sugar, we can not stick the label on you as a Diabetic patient. The Following test should be done 1. GTT 2.HBA1c 3. Blood sugar - Fasting and post parndial should be taken (atleast 3 times on various week) to confirm. The sugar level may rise based on the diet you have taken. If any symptoms persist consult nearby Doctor.

Hello lybrate-user, first line of treatment for diabetes is to avoid sugar, sweets, white rice, potato, sweet fruits and avoid sedentary lifestyle. At least 40mints of walk or 30mints exercise is must. If her diabetes is still more after avoiding sweet and doing exercise then she should consult a diabetologist.

I am 42 years old and I am suffering from blood uric acid, breathe problem, weakness then what I should do?

MBBS, MD - Internal Medicine
Internal Medicine Specialist, Faridabad
A high uric acid level can be caused when your body either produces too much uric acid or your kidneys don't eliminate uric acid rapidly enough. A high uric acid level may cause increasingly frequent attacks of gout, or it may never cause problems. A high uric acid level may also cause some people to develop kidney stones or kidney failure. And some people with a high uric acid level also develop high blood pressure, heart disease or chronic kidney disease, but it's often unclear whether this is a direct cause or merely an early warning sign of these conditions. Factors that may cause a high uric acid level in your blood include: Diuretic medications (water pills),Drinking too much alcohol,Genetics (inherited tendencies),hypothyroidism (underactive thyroid),Immune-suppressing drugs,Niacin, or vitamin B-3, obesity,psoriasis, Purine-rich diet — organ meat, game meat, anchovies, herring, gravy, dried beans, driedpeas, mushrooms and other foods Renal insufficiency — inability of the kidneys to filter waste Tumor lysis syndrome — a rapid release of cells into the blood caused by certain cancers or by chemotherapy for those cancers,Also, you may be monitored for high uric acid levels when undergoing chemotherapy or radiation treatment for cancer. Avoid protein diets, avoid more milk products. bad habits , fast food/fat/oily,salty foods. Coffee, smoking, alcohol intake. Non-veg., take whole grain,oats,green veg.,plenty of water in day time, 1 glass of water at night before bed. Take tab. Zyloric 100 mg once a day. Tab. Ulracet sos for pain in joints.

As I can see ua sugar levels r high. You should try to cut carbohydrtes and increase fibre and proteins. Take plenty of vegetables fruits. Itz seen that nondigestible fibre lowers postprandial glucose acc to a reserach. Regarding calories. I think around 2000 kcal wd b appropriate. But d contents matter. Increase fibre I wd say.

My report hlba27 is positive and one Dr. said for recover it wil take 1 year. My issues is my back and thai are paining.
A positive test means HLA-B27 is present. It suggests a greater-than-average risk for developing or having certain autoimmune disorders. An autoimmune disorder is a condition that occurs when the immune system mistakenly attacks and destroys healthy body tissue. An abnormal result may be caused by: ankylosing spondilylitis Arthritis related to crohn's disease or ulcerative colitis Psoriatic arthritis (arthritis associated with psoriasis) reactice arthritis or Reiter's syndrome Sacroiliitis (inflammation of the sacroiliac joint) uveitis If there are symptoms or signs of an autoimmune disease, a positive HLA-B27 test may confirm the diagnosis. However, HLA-B27 is normally found in a small number of Caucasians and does not always mean you have a disease. you can take tab. combiflaim sos.

Diabetic patent who is under medication and sugar level is in limits, can use HONEY?

Diabetic patent who is under medication and sugar level is in limits, can use HONEY?
Mr. Lybrate-user, well, if blood sugar levels are in strict control with fasting closer to 100 mg, pp 150 to 160 mg, hba1c%<7, then one may consider taking a spoonful a day. But honey is simply another form of cane sugar, with 50 % fructose & 50% glucose, plus some vitamins and antioxidants. It is bound to increase blood sugar levels almost immediately. Thanks for the question.

Is it compulsory for everyone to have sugar in a day or can replace it with other options.

Is it compulsory for everyone to have sugar in a day or can replace it with other options.
Mr. Lybrate-user, sugar is a form of carbohydrate known as disaccharride, which two molecules mono saccharride glucose + fructose. All other foods that we eat like rice, roti, chapati, potato, banana, sweet potato, tapioca, other grains (cereals) all contain starch, which on digestion give maltose (disaccharride) then glucose. So whether you eat sugar or not we get enough glucose in our food. There is no compultion mentioned about consuming sugar. Thanks.

Mr. lybrate-user, Following are the criteria to decide whether a person has diabetes or not. 1) Normal: FBS 70 to 110 mg, PP<140 mg/100 ml & HbA1c% <5.9. 2) Pre-diabetes: FBS:108 to 125 mg, PP 141 to 199 mg & HbA1c% 5.9 to 6.4. 3) Diabetes: FBS:126 mg and above, PP 200 mg and above & HbA1c% 6.5 and above. If a person is in prediabetes state, usually no treatment is advised except adapting a modified lifestyle - like - regular exercise, avoid weight increase, avoid sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries and bakery items, sweetened aerated drinks (colas), fructose corn syrup containing products and highly processed foods. There are some studies where Metformin has been used in prediabetes state, particularly in overweight patients. Usually it is not recommended. Thanks.

Hi When the temperature is too low, blood circulation reduces and causes paleness of skin and numbness too. Avoid exposure to cold, keep yourself warm ,do not take tobacco or coffee as nicotine and caffeine decrease blood circulation. Drink lots of water to prevent dehydration. Check your thyroid levels also.

This is not a proper way to start merdicines for these life style diseases. Because sometimes these may be controlled by simply changing life style, diet modification, exercise,yoga etc. So please consult a Physician in your area.
