To treat diabetes, it is essential to take anti diabetes medicines. Karela juice has literally no role in reducing sugar level, whatever quantity one may drink. It may be used as a supportive therapy. Thanks.

If someone' s family has a history of diabetic disease.Does avoiding sugar intake at early age helps in controlling the disease?

DHMS (Diploma in Homeopathic Medicine and Surgery)
Homeopath, Ludhiana
I don't think so. No doubt that hereditary factor plays an important part in diabetes but avoiding sugar doesn't guarantee that u will be less prone to diabetes. Leading a stress free life, exercising regularly and taking a nutritious life can help you in this aspect rather than consuming less sugar.

Why ativan is being taken at 11 pm? so naturally she will get sleep around 3 am. Why so late going to bed? as that is your main concern. You have to change the daily routine. She should have dinner around 7 - 7.30 pm and take ativan tab and go to bed around 9 - 9.30 pm for the medicine to be effective. To achive this she has to stop watching tv by 8 pm and read some books or magazines or meditate and maintain general relaxed mood. To do that other family members have to cooperate to maintain the peaceful atmosphere and help her in maintaing the timings. Do not get on to the bed until bed time. As she is practicing meditation, have it in the evening also and learn and practice" bhraamari" yoga practice morning and evening which will help her to fall asleep. For all this the other family members have to cooperate in closing the tv and maintaining silence. Change will not come in a single day, but by persistance she can have good sleep.

Along with this weight gain, swelling of face & lower limbs, irregular menstruation, excess flow, early fatigue, tiredness, intolerance to cold, anxiety, inability to concentrate, muscle and joint pains, dry skin and slow heart rate are the symptoms of hypothyroidism. To control hypothyroidism thyroxine tablets have to be taken daily, dose will depend upon body weight, tsh level and t4 level. Plus regular exercise is needed to avoid weight gain. Certain foods like soy beans, soy containing products, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, radish, peanuts, mustard and coffee to be avoided. Also avoid refined flour like maida and bakery items. Consume more of green leafy vegetables and fruits. Thanks.

No there shouldn't be any problem. Try and optimise your blood sugar. Siblings have a tendency of diabetes if parents are diabetic later in life. Hence a healthy lifestyle is always advised.

Mr. Lybrate-user, it appears you have fairly severe hypothyroidism. You have not mentioned what is the t4 and t3 level. Other parameters look with in the range. To treat hypothyroidism you have to start on thyroxine tablets. 10 mcg is too low a dose. It has to be begin with 50 to 75 mcg, then check tsh level after 6 weeks and then if level has come down to the expected extent continue the same dose. Thanks.
