lybrate-user, Subclinical hypothyroidism or clinical hypothyroidism, basically mean the thyroid gland is not producing adequate quantity of thyroxine. This is an essential hormone for development and day to day functioning of brain, as well as multiple vital metabolic reactions constantly going on in the body. Therefore, thyroxine supplement is essential. Once the condition occurs, it will stay for lifetime. There is no cure. Thanks.

Skin infection is quite common in diabetic patients. Control hyperglycemia. Prevent lower limb from any kind of injury. If cellulitis has occurred again start antibiotics after consulting.

My father is 63 years old. He is a diabetic since last 20 years. Currently he is taking Starvog 0.2 Mg (thrice in a day with meal), Glycomet 500 mg (thrice in a day with meal) and absolute DM capsule at night. But his diabetes is fasting 245 and PP 280. Should we change medicine or should we start insulin. We can not afford more than 1000- 1200 Rs per month medicine. So please help over here.

Dear, if your father is willing to take some ayurvedic herbal medicines, he may start this home remedy, along with your current medicines: gurmar churna 50 gms + jamun guthli churna 50 gms + amla churna 50 gms+ neem leaves churna 25 gms + bel churna 25gms. Mix all thoroughly and ask him to take one teaspoon two times a day before meals. He has to follow strict diet along with relaxed mind. May start doing some meditation. Ask him to take frequent but small meals repeatedly every 2 - 2.5 hrly. This will surely help him. Live healthy think healthy

Reactive Hypoglycemia
In some people there will be less glucose in the blood due to hormonal imbalance and eventually if it is not treated or if no precautions are taken, then it may lead to pre diabetic or diabetic case - this condition is called reactive hypoglycemia.

My wife has hoarseness in voice. And very near I found a small bulge in her neck. My mother-in-law while carrying had an operation for thyroid nodule. She does have any breathing trouble nor any difficulty in swallowing. There was some irregular periods over the last 2 months otherwise she is fine. So could my wife be having the same thyroid nodule which her mother had? Should I be concerned and consult with any particular doctor?

I have heard that norms of 100-140 figures were designed by vested intrests some time in 1891. They have lost relevence today. Is it so. Most of the persons who consider themselves as diabetic, dont have to face any adverse effect on health. Please tell me the norms in my case. I am 55 yr old married man, with an active life.

May I know what is your source of information? Usually, such statements are made by irrational, unscientific alarmists who do not have anything better to do. Is your source a verified, peer reviewed source in modern allopathic medicine? or is it some other branch of medicine or baba or swami?

Mr. Lybrate-user, it is good to know you exercise regularly to keep fit. However, your blood sugar levels both show impaired glucose tolerance (igt), which also means you are prediabetic. Usually at 150 mg pp level, urine will not have any sugar. Soplease take care and do not allow the sugar levels to go up. Your bmi is 26.71 kg/m2 (normal <23 kg/m2), so there is need for weight reduction. Also get a routine examination done to check if there is any infection. Uti can cause increased frequency and feeling or retention. If there is infection get it treated.

I am 43 year old male, I am suffering diabetics since last 23 year. What kinds of physical exercises suitable for me.
The effectiveness of Ayurvedic medicine in treating diabetes is well documented. The efficacy of herbs widely recommended in Ayurvedic texts for normalizing the blood sugar level has been validated in several clinical trials. In Ayurveda, diabetes mellitus is known as Madhu meha. Owing to the adverse effect of high blood sugar on nearly every vital organ of the body, diabetes is referred to as ?maharoga? or the major disease in Ayurveda.Ayurvedic medicine for diabetes contain herbs that help to lower the blood sugar level by regulating metabolism of carbohydrates, regulating sugar absorption, stimulating insulin secretion and improving sensitivity to the hormone insulin. Gymnema Sylvestre (Gurmar) Gymnema sylvestre is an effective hypoglycemic component in Ayurvedic medicines for diabetes. The common name of the herb is Gurmar, which means the sugar crusher. The efficacy of Gymnema sylvestre leaves in reducing the blood sugar level has been demonstrated in experimental and clinical studies. Treatment with the herb helps to lower the fasting blood sugar level. By assisting regeneration of the residual pancreatic beta cells, it reduces dependence on insulin medications. Coccinia Indica Coccinia indica is a powerful anti-diabetic agent. By regulating breakdown of starch, it helps to prevent sudden surge of blood sugar after consuming carbohydrates. It could also protect the vital organs from the adverse effect of high blood sugar level.
