Get her investigated for basics. Sugar + salt water does not lead to weakness unless she is diabetic and has high bp. At 48 every woman should get checked for heart because due to time around menopause, there are hormonal changes within the body. Get an ecg, halter, blood tests for cbc, sugar, lipid profile, ultrasound of abdomen. Get back here with reports and her gyne history about periods.

Hi lybrate-user, I hope you're doing. Diabetes is a lifestyle or genetic disease which can lead to several problems if not taken care of. Can I know which type of diabetes you have? Is it Type 1 (INSULIN DEPENDENT - FREQUENT INJECTION) OR TYPE 2 (ORAL MEDICATIONS? Now talking about lifestyle, you need to very careful about what you're putting inside your body. Our body is like a temple, if you take care of it religiously it will give you back positive feedbacks. Think like this. Now I can assure you if you've Type 2 diabetes it can be reversed following a change in your lifestyle in terms of DIET, SLEEP PATTERNS AND EXERCISES. Diet Key Points - 1) Try to eliminate simple carbs like bread, potatoes, pasta etc. 2) Replace carbs with good fats like avocado, macadamia oil, olive oil, desi ghee, eggs, cottage cheese etc. 3) Try to eat moderate amount of protein as it gives you a feeling of satiety and does not have much impact on blood sugar levels. For ex. Eggs, Chicken breast, Cottage cheese, Tofu etc. 4) Try to drink more water and keep yourself hydrated. Every individual needs are different and hence a whole diet plan needs to be customized according to one's lifestyle, blood reports and eating habbits to make sure they stay on the track without any hassle. For any more information or plans regarding diabetes you can connect with me and Ill be glad to help you. Thanks & Regards,

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. I have gone through the details given. I learn that you have T2 DM, and you are on Insulin plus oral drugs. But there is absolutely no mention about blood glucose levels, & HbA1c%, to know whether diabetes is in control. Usually if blood glucose is in control, then proper diet and exercise do help in improving weight. Plus occasionally there may be a need for taking some protein supplements. Unless all the necessary details are given, there is no way to give any suggestions or any advise. Thanks.

Diabetes. Taking Glycomet 500 SR 2 times a day (after breakfast and after dinner) for about 2 years (suggested by doctor). The blood sugar - fasting and pp (after stopping Glycomet on previous day) are as follows: 30-01-2015: Sugar Fasting 85 and PP 138 19-11-2014: Sugar Fasting 101 and PP 176 When the glycomet was continued and blood sugar is tested the results were as follows: 12-7-2014: Fasting 93 and PP 82. How long I should continue glycomet or can I reduce dosage to 1 per day? What are the side effects of glycomet?Age 73 years (Reitred Sr Citizen)

Dear, Diabetes is often called the silent killer. Diabetes, is a metabolic disease in which sugar does not get metabolized properly in the body. This means that the blood sugar levels continue to be high, threatening the normal functioning of the body. According to Ayurveda There are 20 forms of Diabetes : 4 are due to Vata, 6 result from Pitta, and 10 are caused by Kapha. But Diabetes (MADHUMEHA) is.Mainly kapha dosha disease. Poorly managed diabetes can lead to a host of long-term complications like :- Heart attacks, Strokes, Blindness, Nerve damage, Amputation of Limb. Impotency in men.Visit us at www.Malhotraayurveda.Com

lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. I have looked at the details and understand your concern. However, the information is very general. To prescribeany medicine I need to know following details: For diabetes - fasting, PP blood glucose levels, HbA1c%, diet pattern and extent of daily exercise. For thyroid (probably hypothyroidism) TSH level and BP reading. Unless that information is available, no prescription can be given. Plus looking at your weight and height, it is clear that you are close to being in grade 1 obesity with a BMI of 29.74 kgs/M2. Your weight has to be close to 53 kgs. If you are really interested in getting proper treatment please come back with all the above information in a private conversation (paid consultation) so that I can give specific guidance and prescriptions. In this communication we can give only general guidelines and no prescriptions are allowed. Thanks.

I am 58 years old and a diabetic and having hypothyroidism. I am taking metformin and thyroxine. I heard thyroxine reduces the absorption of metformin. Please advise whether I can continue the treatment ?

If your thyroid and sugar both under control, then don't think too much. Thyroxine is to be taken on empty stomach and metformin to be taken with food and both doesn' t have any interaction with each other.

Mr. lybrate-user, If your blood glucose is 340 mg, it is very high. Needs to be brought down urgently. That can only be done by taking appropriate medications regularly plus taking restricted diet and regular exercise. Persistent high blood glucose leads to serious long term complications with multiple organs and systems in the body. These complications can cause blindness, kidney failure, lower limb ulceration, loss of lower limbs and heart attacks. Thanks.
