I am 50-years-old and haven't gone for any check-up that someone at my age should have regularly gone. But since I keep a busy schedule getting not more than six hours of sleep in a day, I feel tired at times. I have also a sweet tooth. But I have never tasted liquor in my life and have never smoked. I have been a veg for the past 15 years. My question is: If I go for a check-up and find out that my sugar levels are high, is there a way I can treat this without going for medicine?

Dear lybrate user, just because you have a'sweet tooth' does not mean you will have diabetes. Diabetes is caused by a number of factors. However in the last 30 years it has gone up globally due to excessive intake of carbohydrates in diet or middle and upper class. All the carbs + sugar you consume contributes towards diabetes. However you must get your complete body tests done and only then you need to worry about how to cure. First at least find out if you have a problem or not. In general you are little overweight. If you drop about 5-8 kgs, your health parameters will definitely improve.

This means that the blood sugar levels continue to be high, threatening the normal functioning of the body.

Dear Mr. Lybrate-user. Once you are diagnosed with diabetes you have to take medicine continously inorder to keep your blood sugar within normal limits. You should also avoid starch rich foods such as rice, potato, etc. You must take homeopathic mother tincture uranium nit q, 60 drops, thrice daily, with water, after meal. In case you don't find the aforesaid medicine in local homeopathic retail medicine shop you can try homeopathic uranium nit 3x tablets (r. S. Bhargava), 4 tablets, thrice daily in empty stomach. This is the best medicine for diabetes in homeopathy.

The treatment of gout is simple. Keep uric acid continuously below 6 to prevent uric acid deposition. Yes diet control helps but, bcoz most gout pts hv a genetic predisposition, diet control will not allow uric acid to be decreased below 6/5 which will control the disease. Most gout pts will require a medicine along with diet control. A common misconception by most doctors is to stop dals, cabbage, spinach etc. But vegetable or plant sources of protein do not convert well to uric acid. If you stop dals and non veg you will hv no source of protein left. If you take your medicine properly, you can even have a bit of non veg too.

Hello sir, I am facing in uric acid problem in leg and joint pain. Give me any advise

Hello sir, I am facing in uric acid problem in leg and joint pain. Give me any advise
A high uric acid level can be caused when your body either produces too much uric acid or your kidneys don't eliminate uric acid rapidly enough. A high uric acid level may cause increasingly frequent attacks of gout, or it may never cause problems. A high uric acid level may also cause some people to develop kidney stones or kidney failure. And some people with a high uric acid level also develop high blood pressure, heart disease or chronic kidney disease, but it's often unclear whether this is a direct cause or merely an early warning sign of these conditions. Factors that may cause a high uric acid level in your blood include: Diuretic medications (water pills),Drinking too much alcohol,Genetics (inherited tendencies),hypothyroidism (underactive thyroid),Immune-suppressing drugs,Niacin, or vitamin B-3, obesity,psoriasis, Purine-rich diet — organ meat, game meat, anchovies, herring, gravy, dried beans, driedpeas, mushrooms and other foods Renal insufficiency — inability of the kidneys to filter waste Tumor lysis syndrome — a rapid release of cells into the blood caused by certain cancers or by chemotherapy for those cancers,Also, you may be monitored for high uric acid levels when undergoing chemotherapy or radiation treatment for cancer. Avoid protein diets, avoid more milk products. bad habits , fast food/fat/oily,salty foods. Coffee, smoking, alcohol intake. Non-veg., take whole grain,oats,green veg.,plenty of water in day time, 1 glass of water at night before bed.

How can I treat uncontrolled diabetes mellitus type 1 preoperatively and also post operatively?
Hello Sir, You can control your blood glucose levels by following a good healthy diet, avoiding high calorie and high sugar food stuffs, limiting the intake of carbohydrates (rice, roti etc.), increasing the consumption of vegetables and taking adequate amounts of protein - dal, non-veg food etc. Kindly get your fasting and post prandial blood glucose tests regularly. Further get your HbA1C checked every 3 months. Your FPG should be less than 110, PPG should be less than 160 and HbA1C should be less than 6.5 % for good control. Kindly see a good diabetologist who can titrate your insulin doses. If you need any more specific information, please consult me privately through Lybrate. I hope this answer has helped you Thank you.

It is unlikely that Amaryl alone will help you control your diabetes. You may increase the dose of Amaryl to 2mg twice daily along with Metformin 500 mg twice daily. After 2-3 weeks, check your blood sugar levels & review. You can increase Metformin upto 1000 mg twice daily. Beware of Hypoglycemia when on Amaryl.

What is initial stage of high blood pressure and blood sugar? And how we protected our self from those diseases?

What is initial stage of high blood pressure and blood sugar? And how we protected our self from those diseases?
Dear lybrate user, the initial stages of type 2 diabetes & blood pressure are known as pre-diabetes and pre-hypertension. The most important fact one needs to keep in mind is that these are predominantly lifestyle disorders hence one needs to lead a healthy lifestyle in order to prevent these. The following tips could be useful: - Sleep well for at least 6-7 hrs everyday - Eat small meals at regular timings everyday, eat well balanced meals. Do not skip your meals. - Avoid eating outside food very frequently (once a week should be fine) - Reduce the amount of salt you take in a day, and preserved/ processed foods (pickles, papad, ready to eat meals, etc) - Avoid too much of coffee, tea, alcohol and stop smoking or taking tobacco - Exercise everyday starting with 20 mins and increasing it to 1 hr (any form like walking, running, swimming, weight training, or even a mix if fine as long as you do it consistently everyday) - Do not take stress about issues, be positive and try to be happy - In case you have a family history, regular check-ups wih your family physician is preferable Though many of these might seem difficult to follow in one go, but slowly you could adopt these measures, which will help you remain healthy and reduce the likelihood of you developing these cardiovascular disorders. Take care!

your condition indicates for sign of thyroid.you can take tab. thyorox 125 mcg. You can take Nutrient-rich foods that improve your health may also benefit your thyroid gland, antioxidant-rich fruits and vegetables more plenty of water: Blueberries, tomatoes, bell peppers, and other foods rich in antioxidants can improve overall health and benefit the thyroid gland. Eating foods high in B vitamins, like whole grains, may also help. Selenium: Tiny amounts of selenium are needed for enzymes that make thyroid hormones to work properly. Eating selenium-rich foods, such as sunflower seeds or Brazil nuts, can be beneficial. Tyrosine: This amino acid is used by the thyroid gland to produce T3 and T4. Taking a supplement may help, avoid alcohl if you take.
