I am a known diabetic for the past20 years the recent result of hba1 is more than 9 I have burning foot and can' t walk without amcr chappal joe to get permanent relief?

MBBS, MD - Internal Medicine
General Physician, Delhi
Your hba1c levels should ideally be less than 7 but since you have diabetes for 20 yrs even bringing it down to 8 would also be of help. You should be started on sulfonylureas like glimepiride. Diabetic neuropathy is difficult to treat if pregabalin is not effective then you may ask your physician to swith to either gabpentin or amytritiline. But do remember that it may take more than 4 to 6 weeks to start showing its effect.

Hi my mother she is 45 years old for last 1yr she have right hand nerves pains up to neck, what should I do?

Diploma in Acupuncture, Pranic Healing, MD - Acupuncture
Acupuncturist, Bangalore
Try this first. Massage with your thumbs from the mid points of the shoulder blades on both sides towards the lower back of your head up to lower level of the ears. Use oil or water for massage. Do for 5 to 10 times morning and evening. Consult after 5 days. Do not do from top to bottom. Give pressure the dipping point on the portion between the thumb and the index finger on the back of the palm. Press and release for 15 times where the pain is more. This will solve the problem. Further do some wrist rotation exercise. Report after 5 days.
