My father in law is diabetic from the last 35 years. His is type 1. He was able to manage his sugar levels well but from the last three years his sugar levels fluctuate a lot. We have kept an acu-check at home and he checks sugar level twice a day before taking insulin but still he faces hypoglycemia often. He doesn't experience anything till it drops to 35. No doctor advise is helping at this point in time because of no sanity in pattern. His sugar is above 500 from the last two days even after taking 18 units of homologue insulin. Is there any good doctor whom we should consult or if there is any Ayurveda or homeopathic treatment that may help?

I am 48 years female with hashimoto Hypothyroidism since 12 years, hypertension and diabetes since 3 years. Taking Eltroxin 125 mcg as hormone replacement, Arkamin for BP and Metformin SR 1 g each morning and evening. Now, recently I had a bulging in stomach. I doubted an infection so got all blood work done for Hepatitis panel which came negative. I got ultrasound of abdomen/pelvis done which shows mild hepatomegaly and diffuse fatty liver. Now, since yesterday, I am not able to urinate by itself naturally. So, I took Lasix 40 once in morning as it is a diuretic and I am urinating but not like normally I do. Now, what might be the reason for this? What should I do?

I am not sure who got you hooked onto sleeping pills. On a longer run they will shrink your brain, resulting in early onset dementia, personality changes, memory changes, even withdrawal seizures. Kindly consult a psychiatrist, get your sleep evaluated, and he will gradually wane you off the sleeping pills and give pills which promote sleep by acting on the cause of sleep disturbance, he may also educate you on sleep hyigiene.

My father is suffering from uric acid problems, can I give him one glass milk daily?

My father is suffering from uric acid problems, can I give him one glass milk daily?
Water flushes out toxins including excess uric acid from the body. Have at least 10- 12 glasses of water daily. Cherries also neutralize the acids and help prevent inflammation and pain. 200 gms per day is very effective in bringing down uric acid. Malic acid in apple neutralizes uric acid and thus provides relief to the sufferers. You should consume one apple daily after a meal. The citric acid found in lime is a solvent of the uric acid .The juice of half a lime squeezed into a glass of water should be taken twice daily. The citric acid found in lime is a solvent of the uric acid .The juice of half a lime squeezed into a glass of water should be taken twice daily. Drink apple cider vinegar. Add 3 teaspoons of vinegar to 8 ounces of water and have it 2-3 times every day to treat uric acid. Consume green tea on a regular basis to control hyperuricemia (high uric acid levels) and lower your risk of developing gout.

You don't need to worry about the diabetes unless n untill you get it confirmed. For that get an hba1c report done which will confirm your sugar status and will let you know whether you are in diabetic, pre-diabetic or non-diabetic range. You may get back once the report is done and do let me know if you have any other symptoms apart from frequency of urine and thirst. Thanks.

Please control her carbohydrates and divide it equally throughout the day! which essentially means rice/ chapati/ cereals to be in moderation and for bp you need to control her salt. Apart from that she can have dhaniya powder with 1 glass lukewarm water in the morning, that will help her control her bp. If you wish to consult me personally, please reach out through lybrate. All the best.

I understand your concern about your grand mother. As thyroid is a lifestyle disease, we can not achieve great results without changing our lifestyle. She need a medicine which gives her power which is lost because of this disease. So we need to analyse her situation properly. In homeopathy we give personalize touch to the treatment. We do not give same medicines to all thyroid patients. So please consult a skilled homeopath. She will be definitely benefited without any side effects.

Mr. Lybrate-user, the sugar levels are ok, only after food is high. To control these levels, you need to take appropriate anti diabetic drugs, plus control the diet and exercise daily for at least 1 hour a day, brisk walking is good. Food to be taken is like every one of us, but no sweets, no direct sugar or gur, no deep fried foods, no junk foods and pastries. Also avoid sweetened aerated drinks, high fat milk products, red meat, egg yolk. Fish is good, but not fried one. Consume good deal of green leafy vegetables and salads.

Lybrate-user, to suggest any treatment first you should inform follwing thing: curren fasting and pp levels, hba1c%, dietary habits and extent of daily exercise being done and present treatment with dosage. Based on those details I can give suggestions. It is better if you come in a private conversation. For ideal sugar control fasting sugar should be around 100 mg, pp 150 to 160 mg and hba1c%<7. Thanks for the question.

Diabetes and How Homeopathy can Help Manage it?

MD - Homeopathy, Doctor of Homeopathic Medicine (H.M.D., BHMS
Homeopath, Delhi
Diabetes and How Homeopathy can Help Manage it?

Diabetes is basically a disorder of the metabolism causing excessive thirst and the production of large amounts of urine. To further elaborate one need to understand the role of insulin in the body. While eating, the body turns food into sugar or glucose. At that time pancreas is supposed to produce the right amount of insulin to move the glucose from our blood into our cells. In diabetics, the pancreas either produces little or no insulin, or the body cells do not respond to the insulin that is produced. Due to this, glucose levels rise in the blood, floods into the urine and passes out of the body, making the body lose its main source of fuel. Diabetes is of many types, but the most common is Type 1 and Type 2.

How to treat Diabetes:

Controlling blood sugar level is the major goal of diabetes treatment, in order to prevent complications of the disease. Treatment may be in Allopathy or Homeopathy, conventional medicine often uses insulin itself in the treatment of diabetes. Since this is kind of replacement, so diabetes becomes a life-long disease. Homeopathy can be used effectively in the treatment. Let’s see how diabetes can be worked with Homeopathy.

Diabetes & Homeopathy

In homeopathy, the main focus is on functioning of the pancreas in efficient insulin production. There are specific medicines which are used effectively in the treatment of all the stages of the diseases.

Homeopathic treatment can help improve the general health of a person with diabetes:

  1. If a person with diabetes is in good health, his or her insulin requirements will be steady and the blood glucose well controlled at the same time.

  2. If the general health is poor, it can be very difficult to achieve good control.  

Homeopaths resort to different approaches towards diabetes Management of Blood Sugar. First is when the blood sugar level is very high, the priority is to control it and there are homeopathic remedies that could reduce the sugar. The commonly used remedies are Uranium Nitricum, Phosphoric Acid etc. These are classical homeopathic remedies.

Depending on the level of the blood sugar and the requirement of the patient, doses are given with doctor’s consultation. It’s a holistic approach in medicine. This treats the patient taking into consideration the mental, emotional and physical peculiarities of the person who is affected with this state. In this, it is considered that the disease is a mere deviation in life force and hence all the efforts are to correct this disorder. The treatment will be to bring into balance the various systems involved in diabetes, for example, pancreas, hormones, and your immune system. Treatment will again be different if you have other ailments along with diabetes.

Homeopathy regards health as a state of balancing the equilibrium of the life force. Whatever treatment is taken it’s always advisable to be in regular touch with the doctor and keep sharing the health status with the doctor.

If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a homeopathy and ask a free question.
