My hubby have diabetes last 1 month. His weight 95 kg. He want to get surgery for reduced his weight. It's safe or not?

Your husband's bmi is 32.87 kg/m2, thiis is classified as grade 1 obesity. Usually surgery is suggested in morbid obesity (grade 3 +) with a bmi over 40 kg/m2. The surgery is fairly safe, but with this level of obesity he can actually work vigorously and reduce weight with exercise and diet control. Even 5 to 10 % reduction in weight will bring a lot of benefits.

Doctor I am diabetic patient and under medication. Is it possible if I stop medicine and instead take care of my diet habit and go for walking everyday. Thanks.

General Physician,
Its not possible. Because your body doesnt produce enough insulin to keep your blood sugar normal with diet and walking alone.

Hi, I wanted to know if there is any treatment of diabetes mellitus in naturopathy.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
NO and is dangerous unless you control diabetes well. Diabetes, often referred to by doctors as diabetes mellitus, describes a group of metabolic diseases in which the person has high blood glucose (blood sugar), either because insulin production is inadequate, or because the body's cells do not respond properly to insulin, or both. It is a difficult task to control blood sugar in the desired normal range. Whatever we eat is metabolised to sugar in the body to provide energy for our daily activities. For the absolute control, one has to monitor his / her blood sugar at regular intervals (Self-Monitoring of Blood glucose – SMBG). Though difficult, this can be done by a glucometer and keep a record. Get an idea of Fasting sugar (FBS) and 2 hours after food (PPBS), & HbA1C (inform me) and check before dinner and after every major food. The basic idea is to reduce the food intake to 1/3 of what you take now. The dictum of sugar control is diet, exercise, diet + medicine and at later stage medicine+ Insulin will be needed. There are different diet plans of varying calories for each person depending on his activity & life style. For diabetes, hypertension (high BP) and many long-term illness control there is the need for regular advice and follow up. Just one time consultation or advice is not enough to guide a diabetic in scientifically & medically correct manner. For giving you regular follow up you ask me with all details like your daily eating pattern and medicines you take. I assure you a proper guidance... if you keep in touch personally.

Is ime 9 tablets is best for diabetes or specially sugar please give me answer shortly, thank you.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Mr. lybrate-user, The particular tablet which is being advertised heavily in TV, is just a combination of some herbal remedies, based on encient ayurvedic texts. There is very little scientific evidence to support. Unless a patient is on modern medicine to treat diabetes or to control blood glucose, there is no way to control it. The medicine mentioned by you can be at best can be taken as a supportive therapy. I have absolutely no belief on the various claims made. Thanks.

I am using thyroxine since 10 yes after my delivery. Are there any possibilities for me to get pregnant.

DM - Endocrinology, MD Medicine
Endocrinologist, Faridabad
Thyroxine does not interfere with being pregnant. Only caution is - thyroid profile should be within normal range during pregnancy to avoid fatal and maternal consequences. So more frequent testing and thyroxine titration required.
