Dear Doctor, I had written to you earlier regarding me taking Gluconorm SR for my high Blood/Sugar level. My last two recent readings are 123/177 and 128/203.My doctor had earlier recommended me taking Glucorm after breakfast. Do you think that I should increase the frequency of taking this medicine. I also want to know, when is the best time to Take Glucorm. Should it be after or before meals.

MD - Consultant Physician
General Physician, Mumbai
An increase in the dose of Gluconorm is probably required provided you have been taking care of your diet and exercise. A good way to see if your DM is under control is to do the HBA1C level. Gluconorm can be taken after food.

I have quit smoking but 6 month back than to I can not run for long. Can you suggest any kind of medicines for increasing stamina.

Doctor of Naturopathy & Natural Medicines, DM - Clinical Haematology
Dietitian/Nutritionist, Agra
Lybrate-user if stamina was made through medicines than rich people would have been very fit. The best exercise to built stamina is running, jogging, exercise and good nd healthy diet. Just start running for 10 minutes everyday and cover 1km after 10 days cover 1.5 km in 10 minutes. Then go for 20 minutes then 30 minutes and track your record. But never go for medicine. Involve youself in some sports activities, you are just 24. You can easily do it.

Best ayurveda regime is to undergo panchakarma in a good ayurveda hospital. However till that time please start taking ayurveda med at home advised as per your condition. Mostly raktshodhak, anti- inflammatory and cleansing med orally and locally are advised.
But its really difficult to cure.

Lisping could be due to physiological and psychological reasons. Among the physiological factors are the functioning of the tongue, the vibration of the vocal cords, the cleft of the pallet etc. You need to first identify wether it is a developmental issue by consuling a speech language therapist (slp. Once that is ruled out then you need to address the psychological issues.
