Your bp is high, sugar is in normal range and total cholesterol is high but get lipid profile done, get bp monitored and treated accordingly, reduce salt and sugar to bare minimum as fruits and vegetables give us enough of essential salts, minerals and vitamins. No added salt or packed food as salt is a preservative. Avoid excess salt as it leads to water retention and higher bp, but there is no need to take bland salt free diet, some additive to give taste is allowed. Take sendha namak as sodium is less in it compared to table salt.

Is there a permanent cure for Diabetics. I heard if the liver is made healthy and detoxified by use of IGF then Diabetics is permanently cured.

Aloe Vera juice is very effective to stop hair loss. Pure aloe gel can be applied directly to the scalp. This is helpful for preventing hair loss due to irritated, dry or infected scalp. Aloe Vera balances the pH level of scalp. After massaging the head with aloe gel, wait for few hours and then wash the hair with lukewarm water. You should do this twice a week for best results.

FOOT CARE IS MOST IMPORTANT PART OF DIABETIC PEOPLE.

I always tell my patients to take care of the feet as they care about their face. Following tips should be practised regularly.

1.Inspect your feet daily. if your eyesight is poor than tell someone else to do it for you.

What should I look for ??
Inspect for:Skin or nail problems: Look for cuts, scrapes, redness, drainage, swelling, bad odor, rash, discoloration, loss of hair on toes, injuries, or nail changes (deformed, striped, yellowed or discolored, thickened, or not growing).
check if your foot is swollen, red, hot, or has changed in size, shape, or direction.

2.Don’t ignore leg pain. 
Pain in the leg that occurs at night or with a little activity could mean you have a blocked artery. Speak to your Diabetologist doctor immediately.

3.Nail cutting. 
If you have any nail problems, hard nails, or reduced feeling in your feet, your toenails should be properly trimmed

4.No“bathroom surgery.” 
Never trim calluses or corns yourself, and don’t use over-the-counter medicated pads.

5.Keep floors free of sharp objects. Make sure there are no needles, insulin syringes, or other sharp objects on the floor.

6.Don’t go barefoot. Wear shoes, indoors and outdoors.

7.Check shoes and socks before putting them on for any pointed foreign object like stone or nail.

Make sure your socks aren’t very tight which can restrict blood flow.

8.Have your circulation and sense of feeling tested.  Doctor will do it for you.

A) diabetes is a pancreatic disease which happens because of damage to beta cells and hence according to me stem cell treatment will not cure diabetes b) sugar plant leaves do not contain sugar and hence it can be used in your diet.

I am suffering from diabetes and I am having high B.P since 2009.

Diploma in Nutrition

I am suffering from diabetes and I am having high B.P since 2009.
Hello , Please follow the doctor prescribed medicine. Which controls the diabetics and will not allow you increase. But along with medication, you need to concentrate on food also. Make sure you food must have high protein, fiber and omega-3 nutrition. For a diabetics, its good to have more protein rather than carbohydrates, which converts into glucose and may have a chance to increase the diabetes. What we suggest is the nutrigemoic protein, who certified, with 9 essential amino acids. This will help you cure your diabetics. But you will definitely have a result, if you can use protein with vitamins and minerals, fiber and omega-3 supplements,

Hello, your sugar level are under control as. Of now but you need to check hba1c every 3 months and if any symptoms of diabetes like increased urine, increased appetite, weight loss, increased thirst etc. In between, check fbs-pp2bs levels that time. Regarding bp, it is also under control with medicine so continue it and measure bp every month regularly. And I would like to know your baseline tests like creatinine, urine albumin, lipid profile. & ecg, 2d echo.
