Hi, I am 42 years old, I take blood pressure medicines since last 8-9 years. Just before 2 years, I was detected with diabetes Type -2, initially I was on insulin and later on, I did diet control, so doctor says, I no longer need medication. But, I still go for blood test on monthly basis. I still follow a strict diet control, but since last 2-3 times, my sugar level has been increasing i. E. Before lunch, it was 145 (approx) and post lunch it was 200 (approx). I still go for ayurvedic medicine, strict diet control, yoga and light exercise on daily basis. Please advise.

If your sugar level comes to normal limits, it does not mean that you should stop the medicines. You will still require a small dose of medicines to prevent the sugar from rising back. Ofcourse, your diet and exercise control is very important and should be continued so that the dose of medications that you require will be minimum.

First control your blood sugar levels. Second exercise and physiotherapy will help you for frozen shoulder.

My sugar at fasting before homeopathy was 108. After starting homeopathy, it has risen to 128. Can this because of this treatment? Because the tabs are made with drops of alcohol and are sweet too. I am following strict diet control and avoiding sugar related products.

Diabetes can also fluctuate everyday. A better parameter is hba1c. Which gives you an average sugar of last 2 months. You should follow a good exercise and diet regimen. You may need allopathy medicines some day.

if you have been diagnosed to have diabetes then, treatment with anti diabetic drugs is a must. Along with that you have to exercise daily for 1 h and take a planned diet based on weight and sugar levels. Avoid sweets, direct sugar, deep fried foods, junk food, pastries. Consume more green leafy vegetables and salads. Plus also avoid smoking and alcohol.

Your fasting and pp level are normal. However your hba1c is on a lower side. Did you had a low sugar (less than 70mg/dl) in last 3 months. If yes than your medication needs to be changed as low sugar in a heart patient is dangerous. I will advised you to check your sugar before breakfast, before lunch, before dinner, 2 hours after breakfast, 2 hours after lunch, 2 hours after dinner and at 3 am. Whenever you feel dizziness, hunger, sweating or palpitation than check your blood sugar at that time.

Thank you for the query. The tsh level should preferably be maintained below 10 (normal range 0.5-4 miu/l). Despite taking l-thyroxine supplements if your tsh is being maintained at 23, it implies that the control is inadequate. Please get a complete thyroid profile done (tsh, ft3 and ft4) and consult your physician/or any doctor in this forum for dose adjustment of medications. I would advice you to get a lipid profile done as dyslipidemia may be associated with hypothyroidism.

You seem ok with these med. Except occasional spurts in sugar levels. I would sincerely advise you to get support of some herbal combo along with these med. If you get response in few weeks, you may continue. Uncontrolled and sustained dm will effect your helath by way of neuropathy and retinopathy and other problems. Your diabetologist must have cautioned you.
