General Physician,
Do your hba1c. Hba1c will show you exact diabetes control. Fasting and post meals sugar will show particular day glucose reading. Fbs and ppbs is trailer of diabetes, hba1c is entire movie. Do your hba1c from srl or metropolis. Start lifestyle modifications and medications.

Mr shivam, the sugar level mentioned (60 mg) is too low, it must be fasting one. At this level patient feels uncomfortable and further drop in level is dangerous. What is the pp level & also his HbA1c%. If fasting also is less then you may have to consult the doctor to see if glimiperide dosage be adjusted. He should be made aware of the hypoglycemia symptoms, should carry gluco tabs all the while, have an identity card mentioning his diabetic condition with all personal details. If you want me to give specific advice please come in a private conversation with all the details, then I can guide with a proper specific prescription.

Douring pregnancy lower limbs do develop some swelling because uterus grows big and put pressure on blood vessels of lower limbs. This is called dependent edema. It disappears invariably post delivery. If one develops hypothyroidism even then swelling of face and lower limbs does occur. Since you are having hypothyroidism, there is a possibility of this complaint. Particularly if tsh levels are not well controlled.

Mr. Lybrate-user, you have to first take appropriate treatment with anti- diabetes drugs, plus restricted diet and regular exercise. As regards giving an exact diet plan, it has to be very individualised. So I need to know sugar levels, hba1c%, present dietary habits and extent of daily exercise being done. Unless those details are there, I may not be able to give any plan. Still a few things you should are: avoid sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries, white bread, other bakery item, sweetened aerated drinks, high fat milk products, fructose corn syrup containing products and highly processed foods. You should consume good deal of green leafy vegetables, salads and permitted fruits (100 g a day). Thanks fooor the question.

HYPOTHYROIDISM




Homeopathic remedies and homeopathy treatment for Hypothyroidism.

Hypothyroidism is a condition in which the body lacks sufficient thyroid hormone. Since the main purpose of thyroid hormone is to “run the body’s metabolism”, it is understandable that people with this condition will have symptoms associated with a slow metabolism.

Hypothyroidism – CAUSE

There are two fairly common causes of hypothyroidism. The first is a result of previous (or currently ongoing) inflammation of the thyroid gland which leaves a large percentage of the cells of the thyroid damaged (or dead) and incapable of producing sufficient hormone. The most common cause of thyroid gland failure is called autoimmune thyroiditis (also called Hashimoto’s thyroiditis), a form of thyroid inflammation caused by the patient’s own immune system. The second major cause is the broad category of “medical treatments”. As noted on a number of our other pages, the treatment of many thyroid conditions warrants surgical removal of a portion or all of the thyroid gland. If the total mass of thyroid producing cells left within the body are not enough to meet the needs of the body, the patient will develop hypothyroidism.
Hypothyroidism – SIGNS AND SYMPTOMS

Fatigue
Weakness
Weight gain or increased difficulty losing weight
Coarse, dry hair
Dry, rough pale skin
Hair loss
Cold intolerance (can’t tolerate the cold like those around you)
Muscle cramps and frequent muscle aches
Constipation
Depression
Irritability
Memory loss
Abnormal menstrual cycles
Decreased libido
Hypothyroidism – HOMEOPATHIC TREATMENT & Medicines

Homeopathy offers good prognosis to cases of hypothyroidism. Medicines like Calcare phos, Calcarea carb, Lapis alb, Iodium, Thyroidinum, Spongia, Lycopus, Calcarea iod etc are often found indicated in cases of hypothyroidism.

Hello, Thanks for your question. I am Dr Akshay from Fortis hospital, New Delhi. I think you are prone to high uric acid levels quiet often. My advise is to make dietary modification which means less amount of red meat and especially rice, but you should go to a dietician and get a diet chart made to be strictly followed till your levels come down to normal values. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance. Thanks & Regards Dr Akshay Kumar Saxena

Ayurveda and Gestational Diabetes

BSc

Ayurveda and Gestational Diabetes

Diabetes during pregnancy is known as gestational diabetes. It is interesting to note that the chances of getting gestational diabetes, is one of the most common complication of pregnancy. It has increased by almost 40%. Also, gestational diabetes not only affects the health of the mother, but also the health of the baby. What usually happens with gestational diabetes is that the blood sugar level, of both the mother and the baby go above the normal level.

Ayurveda can help treat this disease. Here are the most common Ayurveda remedies for gestational diabetes.

  1. Gurmaar: Gurmaar, called "The Sugar Killer" is also known as Gymnema sylvestre in medical jargon. Gurmaar also contains gymnemic acid molecules, which are crucial because they have an anti-diabetic effect. They work by combining with glucose molecules, which are in the blood stream. These stop the glucose from entering the bloodstream. 
  2. Karela: Karela is commonly known as bitter gourd and its biological name is Momordica charantia. It has anti-diabetic properties and also contains many other micronutrients, which are crucial in preventing the complications which arise from gestational diabetes.
  3. Vizaysaar: Vizaysaar comes from the bark of a tree whose biological name is Pterocarpus marsupium. It is very useful for diabetes. If you immerse the wood of Vizaysaar in water overnight and then drink it, your blood sugar levels are expected to fall.
  4. Saptrangi: Saptrangi is biologically known as Salacia oblonga. Just like Vizaysaar, it is a tree whose bark is immersed in water and then drunk by the patient suffering from diabetes. You will know that the water is ready for drinking when it turns brown, which usually happens overnight. It is also being studied in Western herbal schools in addition to Ayurveda nowadays.
  5. Tulsi: Tulsi is a holy plant in Hindu mythology and is known as Ocimum sanctum in biological terms. It is worshiped as a holy plant because it has tremendous medicinal properties including treating many types of cancers, cough, cold, sore throat as well as reducing blood sugar.
  6. Ashwagandha: The medical name for ashwagandha is Withania somnifera. It is another great remedy for diabetes.

Effective Herbal Remedy for Male Infertility!

Low libido in men has become a serious concern nowadays as is evident from the increased demand for male infertility medicines in the market.

Ayurveda can help you get a deeper understanding of these issues regarding male health and also provide a permanent cure with herbs and proper diet guidelines.

No need to worry. This fasting sugar level is not dangerous but at the borderline. No need to start any medicine now. Just stop taking extra sugar in your diet like in milk and tea and prohibit from taking sweets. Report after 20 days with fasting blood sugar levels.

Abhraka Bhasma (Sataputa: Useful in diabetes and excessive urination. This can be used in several diseases with different adjuncts. DOSAGE: 1g = 4 doses. For excessive heat and dry cough, add equal quantity of sithopaladichurna and use one dose both morning and evening with sugar. But personally I feel allopathy mesicines are best for treating diabates.
