So far in the world there is cure discovered for diabetes. However, you may come across claims made by either ayurvedic or homeopathic practitioners, that in their practice diabetes can be cured. Unfortunately these are only unsubstantiated claims. If anyone claims he can cure or has a cure, he would be eligible for nobel prize. Anyway, best thing is taking appropriate modern medicine, taking a balanced restricted diet and exercising regularly for at least 1 hour a day and maintaining normal weight, these are the measures which help in controlling diabetes. Thanks.

Hi, it is clear that your diabetes is totally uncontrolled. Well controlled diabetes should have fasting blood glucose near 100 mg, pp 150 to 160 mg/100 ml & hba1c% <7. Looking at your information treatment needs to be properly adjusted so that blood glucose is brought to desired level.

Recommended dose of whisky is 60 to 90 ml. More than this increase risk of hypoglycemia when you will be prescribed other anti diabetic drugs in later years of life.

Hi, My husband is 32 year old and he has hypothyroidism. Kindly suggest how to control it.
Lybrate-user, if hypothyroidism is confirmed, then treatment with thyroxine tablets has to be initiated, which will control all the symptoms. Dose has to be decided on the basis of body weight, t4 & tsh levels. Plus soy beans, soy containing products, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, radish, peanuts and coffee have to be avoided. Tablet should be taken early morning and nothing to be taken for one and half to two hours after that. Should consume more of green leafy vegetables, salads and fruits. Also only use whole grain flour for chapati & roti. Np maida and food made out of it. Should exercise for at least 1 h a day. Thanks.

Mr. Lybrate-user, with 116 kg weight you have a grade 3 obesity, that is the major problem. It is possible that uncontrolled hypothyroidism may have been the reason for triggering and increasing obesity. But now your primary objective is tackle obesity. For that hypothyroidims has to be strictly controlled with tsh levels should be maintained between 3 to 4 milli units / l. Then there has to be strict dietary control to be observed and regular exercise regimen. You should aim at cutting about 8 to 10 % of present weight. It is possible, only if you are prepared mentally. Thanks.

My wife is pregnant from 14 days and she suffered from thyroid and she take thyroid medicine. Is it safe to take thyroid medicine in pregnancy.

Yes, it's safe. In fact, it's unsafe not to take thyroid medication during pregnancy if you need it. Whether you have hypothyroidism (an underactive thyroid) or the much less common hyperthyroidism (an overactive thyroid), you'll probably need to take medication and be closely monitored. The most common reason expecting moms take thyroid medicine is to treat hypothyroidism – when your thyroid gland doesn't produce enough thyroid hormone. You have to take medicine and maintain it normal. During pregnancy, the thyroid gland needs to produce about 40 percent more thyroid hormone for both you and your developing baby. Women who don't receive enough thyroid hormone during pregnancy are at greater risk of complications, Hypothyroidism, an underactive thyroid, increases the risk of pregnancy complications, such as miscarriage, still birth, infertility, maternal anemia, pre-eclampsia, placental abruption, postpartum hemorrhage, premature delivery, low birth weight and deficits in intellectual development in infants. So its mandate to take medication and maintain it normal. My advice is to continue medicine and consult doctor regularly for normal pregnancy.

We have specialized tablets to control hair fall. These tablets clear blocks at the root of hair follicles thereby giving them proper protein and nutrition and hence hair becomes thick and strong and follicles that are devoid of hair acquire nutrition and grow hairs in them. At the same time, medicine retards destruction of estrogen, thereby reducing hair fall. Above all else, medicine strengthen liver so that absorption of calcium and phosphorus from food increases. This is how it is complete hair care system. Regards

Excessive thirst, excessive urination, increased appetite, loss of weight, blurring of vision and skin infections are few of symptoms of diabetes. There is no cure for diabetes. You can only control it by diet, exercise and drugs.

My father has diabetes how can he lower his blood sugar level?

Dietitian/Nutritionist,
My father has diabetes how can he lower his blood sugar level?
Diabetes is an imbalance of carbohydrate metabolism. Blood sugar depends on what you eat, at what time n in how much quantity. So a controlled n calculated carbohydrate intake is utmost important. So is d type of carbohydrate. Ie simple or complex. Exercise improves d functioning capacity of insulin. So regular physical activity, advised by your dr, in accordance to the cardiac status etc, is a must. But simple things like avoiding to sit / lie down immediately post meals, n having a stroll post meals go a long way to control post meal blood sugars. Stay healthy, stay blessed.
