There is no need for any medicine you must time yourself for going to the washroom it might have become a compulsive habit for you use the washroom initially every two hrs before watch and slowly increase the time gap if your investigations show everything normal then you sure can manage it on your own.

Dear sir my sugar level. Is very high please give me a your valuable suggestions what I can do.
Diet exercise and regular medication is key to control sugars. Get your fasting, pp and hba1c test done.

My mother is diabetic for last 6 years but this week her sugar level was 485 & she is suffering from cold & cough for last 20 days. Drs have prescribed antibiotics & antidiabetic (glimepiride 4 mg + metformin 1000 mg BD) but still sugar level is 351 and no symptomatic relief in cold & cough, also she is having fever sometimes. She doesn't like food now. Nausea is also happening.

Thank you for the query. As per the details provided, your mother is 51 years of age and a diabetic for 6 years. A sugar level of 485 mg% is definitely undesirable, and in your mother's case it has shot up probably due to her infection (cough +cold). Please get her sugar profile done (fasting and 2 hrs post prandial blood sugar and hba1c). Since she has an infection, it will be difficult to control her sugar without treating the infection. It will be preferable to maintain her sugar between 140-180 mg% at this phase. Since she is having nausea diabetic ketoacidosis (a condition arising due to high sugar levels) must be kept in mind. Glimeperide and metformin are good medications, but since they are long acting drugs, in the background of an infection they may cause hypoglycemia. Sometimes to manage high blood sugar levels, temporarily, short acting insulin may be used. Once the sugar levels are controlled, the oral drugs may be restarted. It is advisable to monitor her sugar levels at home, if possible. In the long term, a 1400 kcal/day, refined carbohydrate and saturated fat restricted diet is preferred. Regards

Hi, It is not advisable to stop blood pressure and diabetes medication . You relative's BP and diabetes is under control due to medicines. If they are stopped BP and blood glucose will raise. Very high blood pressure can lead to stroke. High blood glucose can lead to osmotic symptoms and your relative can fall ill. There definitely will be other alternatives to the medicines that he is taking . Ask him to consult a good doctor as soon as possible. Hope this helps you. Thank you

You need to start ayurvedic medicine along with your allopthic medicine to control blood sugar. Plus you need to change your food habits. For a start reduce the qty. Of water you drink in 24 hrs to a max of 1 ltr. Have water in sips & not in gulps. Sugar is a disease of water metabolism. Ayurveda treats it differently. Please consult privately for detailed prescription of ayurvedic medicine & food system.

They are never a good idea as dates are rich in fructose and sucrose which increase blood glucose values rapidly

Gestational hypertension leads to 57% increased risk of calcification

Gestational hypertension normally resolves following birth, and blood pressure returns to normal. But women with elevated blood pressure during pregnancy are at higher risk of hypertension, diabetes, and cardiovascular disease later in life. Sabour and colleagues evaluated 491 healthy postmenopausal women selected from participants enrolled in the PROSPECT (Predictors of Response to Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy) study from 1993?1997. Women with a history of gestational hypertension had an almost 60% increased risk of having coronary calcification several decades later compared with women who had normal blood pressure during pregnancy. The relationship held for women who had mild elevations in blood pressure during pregnancy as well as for those who developed preeclampsia ? a more serious complication of pregnancy characterized by very high blood pressure, edema, and risk of organ damage.

Will a person with Type 2 diabetes under control end up with the need for insulin?
Yes, it is possible. If the diabetes cannot be controlled with medicines, then insulin is necessary. But if it under control, then it is okay. Regular exercises especially walking helps to keep diabetes under control.

This shows that you are diabetic and need management. First of all avoid high sugar foods, consume fiber rich food. Do exercise 40 to 50 minutes daily. Recheck your sugar after 1 month. If it is still high then you need medicines.

Mr. Lybrate-user, in case of high uric acid in blood some persons get gouty arthritis, which invariably affects foot and great toe to begin with. Get your blood checked for uric acid, if it is high (above 7 mg), then what your doctor has said is right. It can be treated by different drugs called as uricosuric agents and/or nsaids. Plus you will have to avoid high purine (a type of protein) containing foods, particularly red meat, organ meet, certain fish like sardines, trout, scallops, salmon, herring and mushrooms, mussels etc. Also avoid alcohol and high fat cheese.

For a diabetic it is best advised to have a diet planned as per the sugar levels, lifestyle and history. Though you can follow some guidelines - have small frequent meals. Do not fast for more than 2-3 hours. Avoid a very heavy meal at one time. Avoid fruit juices, aerated drinks or sugarcane juice, honey, jaggery or sugar. Fruits should be had as a mid meal. Avoid junk foods. Exercise and stay active. Do not attempt to try out too many remedies as you could go into hypoglycaemia. Sleep well. It's all a matter of discipline.

I am a 65 years old Male from Kolkata. Since 1985, I am on Eltroxin (Thyroxine Sodium Tablets IP) for many years when I was determined a high level hypothyroid patient. Since last few years, my thyroid level is exhibiting normal parameters as below: THYROID PROFILE TEST: Value As on 28-11-2013 - T3 94 ng/dl / T4 8.9? g/dl/ TSH 2.07? IU/ml Value As on 16-08-2015 - T3 82 ng/dl / T4 7.8? g/dl/ TSH 2.39? IU/ml. I was advised by one physician to continue with 100 mcg as maintenance therapy. I request you to kindly let me know whether it is still necessary to take tablets when T3, T4 & TSH is under control.

Dear it is important to keep the levels of tsh under control. Ideally betn 1-2. You havent mentioned your current dose of eltro xin. If you need to increase the dose then do it gradually as increasing the dose rapidly can cause problems because of your age.

Yes he can have fruits such as pomegranate, dates palm, pappaya, orange. Foods prepared of wheat & millets are more good. Intake of oats prepared with milk once daily is very good. Having dinner by 7-8 can help to control fbs. Then with ayurvedic sugar medicines, I can provide you it. I prepare ayurvedic medicines at my home for my patients. If possible I will courier you the medicines to your address. Or else you can have powder of fenugreek seeds daily 2 tablespoon mixed with water. By doing all this gradually his pancreas will come to normal. Also I suggest the practice of yoga nd meditation esply suryanamaskar.

There has some hue n cry about pioglitazone two years back but that is politics between pharma companies. MOREOVER Bladder cancer risk is with high dose that is 30 mg or above but it's benefits overweigh risk. In India Doctors are using this salt for 15 years.Nobody has seen any case of bladder cancer. On the contrary cancer is more seen in people who are not diabetics and aren't using pioglitazone. So rest assured you are on right track.Good luck.
