62 years old male from Delhi asked
Is it good to consume Fenugreek whole for cure of diabetes With it be helpful to take Karela juice (a spoon) everyday in morning for diabetes control Shall it be taken whole year in every season.
Fenugreek or karela juice can not assure you a cure for diabetes, but just a little bit benefit only that too for some people and not for all. As the Diabetes is a metabolic disorder affecting multisystem, kindly get treated with Medicines instead of those Home remedies. You sholdnt endanger your life with those. Homoepathy can cure type 2 Diabtes mellitus completely in a period of six months to one year. Consult a homoepath soon.

Is it good to consume FENUGREEK Whole to treat diabetes. Can Karela juice in morning is beneficial for Diabetic. Can these both be taken entire year (summer and winter)

Yes, you should take both. You can take karela juice empty stomach in early morning and overnight soaked fenugreek seed can take before 20 minute of your meal.

I am prediabetes. My fasting sugar is between 110 to 140. My hba1c is 6.2. I walk 6 days a week for 1 hour. Do I need to start medication.
You are on Borderline. You don't need any medicine. You can do natural healing by controlled diet and regular exercise. Avoid medicines as far as possible. Take more grains like raagi and bajra/ brown rice / oats / multi grain Atta. Take less maida/ White rice /sugars / potatoes. Nature has best solutions. All the best.

Hello Sir, I just read your query. As he has been suffering with frequent motions and cereals are not digesting, then give him foods which are easy to digest and will help him in getting rid of loose stool too. *First of all add curd to his diet as it is a rich source of probiotics. Probiotics are intestinal friendly bacteria which help to maintain normal environment of intestine and also helps in maintaining intestinal motility, as a result will control his motions. * Give him apples, bananas, pomegranate, khichdi, yellow moong dal and more of semi solid diet for some time as all these things help in binding stool and are easily digestible too. * Give him boiled water only. * I hope you find my answer helpful. For more queries you can consult me. Thank you.

Its quite surprising that with a report of 97/193 some one has prescribed Diabetic medicines for you. Kindly repeat all your tests again from a different lab. Take your reports to a different doctor. Diabetes medicines should not be taken in this manner. They can create problems in case your body doesn't need them. Better to be sure.

65 years old male from Delhi asked
My father is having gol bladder stone, many of them, he is also suffering from diabetes for the last 13 years and had a bypass surgery done 7 years back, so is it advisable to get a micro surgery done to remove the stone, pls advice.
Hello, Thanks for the query. If his blood glucose is well controlled with fasting<100 mg, PP 160 to 180 mg & HbA1c% <7, then getting a surgery done is fine. The surgeon would be the best judge to give an appropriate advise on the spot. Thanks.
61 years old male from Kochi asked
Hi, my age is 62 years old. I had been diagnosed with type II diabetes and the medicines I have been taking are as follows:- Metformin 1000 mg 1xod Metformin 500 mg 1xhs glimepiride 2 mg 1xbd clopid 75 mg 1xod atorvastatin 20 mg 1xhs The above medicines have been taken regularly for past three months. Now I have taken the blood test two days ago. The result is as follows:- FBS 149 PPBS 235 HbA1c 6.0 Serum urea 24 mg/dl serum creatinine 0.89 serum Uric acid 5.3 Liver Function Test Total Bilirubin 0.78 SGOT 50 SGPT 58 LIPID Profile Total cholesterol 135 Triglycerides 121 HDL 46 LDL 65 I request a diagnosis of my status of health. I go for swimming once in a while and find no problem in swimming for about 700 metres in about one hour (that is 14 lengths in a lap of 50 metres each) I am muscular and have a athletic body and have no other symptoms. I love drinking alcohol and have about three pegs of 60 ml each every night most days. Should I stop drinking. I can muster enough will if the kind doctor says so. Thanking you in anticipation.
Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for your query. I have gone through all the details given including lab values. All the values seem to be well within normal limits, except SGOT & SGPT. Both are slightly high, signifying some affection of liver functions. It points to one thing clearly that is to reduce alcohol intake. It should be preferably one or two days in a week plus much lesser in quantity. Thanks.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Following are the criteria to decide if one is normal or otherwise: 1) Normal: Fasting Glucose: 70 to 110 mg, PP:<140 mg & HbA1c% <5.9 2) Pre-diabetes: FBG: 108 to125 mg, PP: 141 to199 mg, & HbA1c% 5.9 to 6.4. 3) Diabetes: FBG: 126 mg and above, PP: 200 mg and above, HbA1c%:6.5 and above. Your blood glucose levels are absolutely normal. Thanks.
26 years old male from Erode asked
My grandfather (65+) was a diabetic patient he had injury in his leg fingers, we contacted doctor and he advised to remove the finger as it Is very bad in condition and we did the same. Now after 10 days of monitoring there is a black skin appearance at his near by leg fingers (doctor saying that is due to blood not reaching those places properly) now doctor says to remove upto leg ankle as blood flow is not proper upto that areas. Is there anyway to save my grandfather.

wat you have is impaired glucose tolerance. if you control your diet by avoiding sugary items, canned foods, excess salt in diet you can maintain balanced blood sugar levels. You need to cut down on carbohydrates, include soups, sprouts, oats, dryfruits and high fibre diet. Go for regular walk, start exercises, yoga, meditation, drink 2-3 litres water per day. Check your blood sugar levels regularly to keep a watch.

No details of present medications, test reports etc. You must reduce your weight to about 64 Kg. It is not the best medicine but most appropriate and effective medicine is selected by your treating doctor taking into consideration your sugar levels, average sugar levels, HbA1c, weight and other parameters. Regular follow up, monitoring and review is a must.

I am using DNS Dutch Mass (mass gainer). It seems very much sweet! Will it lead to diabetes? I am in a dilemma!
Mr. S lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. The product mentioned has a good amount of carbs and proteins. It might help in building muscle mass provided you do regular exercise for over 1 hour plus. Just taking a supplement is not going to add muscle mass. If you are only looking at good protein supplements then eggs 2 to 3 a day are the best. Along with good exercise schedule one can build a good muscle mass. Thanks.
