I am a diabetic since last 4 years and I have started feeling numbness in feet early morning.
Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. In diabetes peripheral neuropathy does develop leading to numbness, burning and tingling sensation. Therefore, it is essential to achieve a strict blood glucose control with fasting glucose < 100 mg, PP 150 to 160 mg & HbA1c% <6.8. Because improperly controlled blood glucose increases neuropathic symptoms. Then if necessary some specific medications to reduce the symptoms of neuropathy are also needed. Thanks.

If child has been diagnosed for autism, they must have surely recommended ZERO screen time. If you stop screen time then only she will start repeating your dialogues. Echolalia is curable. And they surely can be mainstreamed. Just continue with Occupational Therapy.

Piles and fissures mouth bleeding... I am very nervous about operation... Right now I could not walk even sleep is painful...

- use a soft toothbrush -- and brush properly! brush your teeth for at least two minutes twice a day and after meals. Hard brushing can further damage the soft tissues of your mouth. - floss at least once a day and be sure to floss beyond the gum line to remove more plaque. - control bleeding by applying pressure to the area with a cold compress. - rinse with salt water or hydrogen peroxide to keep the area clean. Avoid mouthwashes that contain alcohol, which can dry out your mouth. - stay away from smoking and other tobacco products, which can aggravate bleeding gums. - eat a balanced diet and limit snacking between meals. Carbohydrates and sugars feed dental plaque. - try an oral irrigation device, commonly known as a" water pick, to clear debris from around the gum line. - you may need deep cleaning along with surgical curettage or gum strengthening procedure. Use pepsodent tooth paste & gum paint for 2 to 3 weeks. Advance procedures can be done with laser.

Dear lybrate user you may be suffering from nutritional deficiency. Protiens, carbohydrates, vitamins, fat are basic factors to constitute our body. Take a balanced diet and fresh fruits every day, drink a cup of milk everynight before bed, fresh fruits are rich with vitamins and protiens. Do not forget to drink 3-4ltr of water everyday. Tak proper sleep. Avoid mental and physical stress. Take all the necessary precautions which enhance quality of your life. Massage with little warm ksheerabala taila everyday before bath will help you.

I am a 30 year old male, I experienced a partial seizure 6 years ago and I'm under medication for the same. I was taking Levipil 500 mg tablets twice a day, my doctor has gradually reduced my dosage to Levipil 250 mg once a day. Now my doctor has stopped medicine. What are the possible side effects I may experience after stopping the medicine? I feel dizzy, loss of control and shivering sometimes are they related to the condition of stopping medicine?

If your doctor has decided to stop the drug, it must be after considering your risk is low for recurrence. Normally we don't see any problem after levipil is withdrawn. But report to your doctor once you are facing them.
