Start with 14 units in morning and 10 units in evening 30 before meals, check your sugar yourself daily with gkucometer. Further dose can be adjusted according to blood sugar. If you feel dizzy or drowsy then this dose is too much for you. Decrease two units from this dose then.

Mr. Lybrate-user, to suggest a specific diet, I need to know following details, fbs< pp bs & hba1c%, present diet, extent of exercise, based on those details I can give a diet plan. A person with diabetes has to avoid sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries, other bakery items, sweetened aerated drinks, fructose corn syrup containing products, highly processed foods and high fat milk products. Should consume more of green leafy vegetables, salads and permitted fruits (100 g a day). Use whole grain flour and whole grain products. Thanks.

My sugar lavel is 135/170 and hba1c 6.8 what can i do. Can i start alopathic medicine or ayurvedic ? please advice me.

MD - General Medicine, MBBS
General Physician,
Please specify as what is 135 and 170. If it is the fasting and post meals sugars. Then both are high. Even though the blood sugars are suggestive of diabetes, the blood sugars are not very high. So I would suggest you to take a diabetic diet and a do some light excercise like brisk walking for 30 mins and repeat sugars after 1 month. Diabetic diet is mainly a diet which avoids sugar containg foods and drinks. Reduce the rice intake. Take more of vegetables.

Sleep related disorder is common in elderly with comorbidities. Good sleep hygiene is advised for the same. Going to bed early, light meals before food, low light, avoiding fatty meal, reading novels, avoiding watching tv in the evening, yoga or relaxation before sleeping are some measures you can try.

For diabetes follow a diet low in carbohydrate, low in fat and high in fibre. Walking for 30 mins a day for at least 5 days in a week is recommended. Follow a stress free life. Try meditation or yoga to relieve your stress.

I have a longer menstrual cycle almost 35-40 days cycle. I had my last menstrual period on August 6th. I'm pregnant. So till date the pregnancy should be 11 weeks but in the ultrasound scan it is measuring to be only 6 weeks with a sac and no heartbeat. Adding to this I have hypothyroidism for which I'm taking medication. What could be the reason the pregnancy is measuring less in age please? Or is it normal to people who have irregular or longer cycle of menstruation? I didn't have any cramping or bleeding till now. Kindly suggest on this. I'm worried. Also on 30th September the gestational sac measured 1.4 cm and then on 6th October it measured 1.6 cm. Had my HCG blood test done and it is around 27829.2 mIU/ml which is in the range expected for 6-8 weeks pregnant.

you may show heart beat later since periods were always delayed, accordingly ovulation would have been later than expected 14 th day of cycle reason for small for date fetus another reason can be due to medicines for low thyroid which increases the metabolic rate to the extent that the baby gets affected inversely and stops growing. thyroid medicines should be avoided during first three months and given later with caution depending upon levels of thyroid hormone circulating in the blood good for you that hcg levels are good get tested again rising levels of hcg hormone indicate a growing fetus

Effective Ways Ayurveda Can Help In Treating Infertility!

Are you looking for a treatment measure for infertility in females? You can go for an Ayurvedic treatment, which is completely natural and does not involve the use of any chemical. Infertility refers to the inability of a woman to conceive after having unprotected sex. The principles of Ayurveda states that infertility occurs when a woman’s Shukra dhatu, or the reproductive tissue does not get proper nutrition. This may happen because of improper digestion, and also because of some toxins in the body. Anxiety, insomnia, depression, and spicy food are other causes of infertility in females according to Ayurveda.

Ayurvedic treatment
Ayurveda has a holistic approach towards health and treats the body as a whole, instead of treating a specific ailment. An Ayurvedic doctor needs to be certain about your body type before making a treatment suggestion. Ayurvedic treatment for infertility in women aims at ensuring the proper transformation of food into nutrients, which will move to your shukra dhatu.

The most important Ayurvedic remedies for treating female infertility are as follows:

  1. Swedanam: This method is used by Ayurvedic physicians for inducing sweating in patients who suffer from infertility. This is done with the help of exercises or blankets. It is meant for flushing out toxins from your body.
  2. Vamanam: This is a detoxing Ayurvedic therapy in which vomiting is induced for getting rid of undigested food from the body. In spite of being uncomfortable, this is an ideal detox therapy for infertility management.
  3. Banyan tree bark: The use of dried banyan tree bark powder is recommended by several Ayurvedic physicians for treating infertility problems in females. Remember to add sugar to the banyan bark powder before consuming it.
  4. Ashwagandha churna and kapikacchu: These are popular Ayurvedic medicines, which are used for treating infertility issues in women.
  5. Phala gritam: Consume phala gritam in the form of buttermilk mixed with milk. This medicine effectively treats several functional problems related to female infertility.
  6. Guduchi, triphala churna, and gokshura: These Ayurvedic medicines are used for clearing blockages in your body. This prevents the production of shukra dhatu and helps in the management of female infertility.
  7. Shatavari: This Ayurvedic medicine is designed only for women for the treatment of infertility.
  8. Dietary changes: Ayurveda states that a woman suffering from infertility must follow a strict diet plan. Spicy, oily, and extra salt foods should be strictly avoided. It is recommended for you to consume food items such as almonds, whole grains, fresh vegetables, fresh fruits, and dried fruits.

If you are suffering from infertility and seek Ayurvedic treatment, visit an experienced Ayurvedic practitioner for timely advise. He will be able to diagnose your cause and prescribe remedies based on the diagnosis.

There is something wrong. Probably there is miss dose for few days or not taking medication properly. 150 itself is too much. Please review privately or seek consultation with your endocrinologist near by.
