Hello, thanks for the query. I have seen the details given. Both fasting and after food glucose levels are high. So you do need treatment for diabetes. However, it is not possible to just say go ahead and take the tablets that you have mentioned to control glucose levels. There is a need to look at your weight, height, extent of daily exercise, hba1c%, lipid profile, dietary habits, bp readings and then can decide about taking medicine/s to control blood glucose and also what other precautions you need to take. So please come back with all the above investigations in a private conversation or consult your local physician to initiate the necessary treatment. In this communication we are supposed to give only general guidelines. No drugs can be prescribed. I hope you understand. Thanks.

Hi. My father is 55 years old. He is a diabetic, having medium to high cholesterol and an avid smoker. Since past few years, he gets triggered in the smallest talk, shouts at others and has become restless. This is completely opposite to what he used to be. I am concern about his mental state. Are these symptoms of adhd? How should he be treated? Also, how to reduce his smoking urges. Nicotex tabs have been tried several times, but all in vain.

Is your blood sugar under control. Follow this 1. Don't take tea empty stomach. Eat something like a banana (if you are not diabetic) or any seasonal fruit or soaked almonds and a glass of water first thing in the morning (within 10 mins of waking up). No only biscuits or rusk will not do. 2. Don't overeat 3. Take your breakfast every day. Don't skip it. U should eat whatever your mother or grandparent eat in bfast. I mean to say whatever is your traditional food. If punjabi eat paratha, if belongs to south then take idli/ dosa etc. 4. Have light meals every 2 hours (in addition to your breakfast, lunch n dinner) e.g. Nariyal paani, chaach, a handful of dry fruits, a handful of peanuts, any fresh n seasonal fruit, a cup of curd/milk etc 5. Finish your dinner at least 2 hours before going to sleep. 6. Maintain active life style7. Avoid fast foods, spicy n fried foods, carbonated beverages 8. Take a lot of green vegetables n fruit. 9. Drink lot of water.10. Everyday preferably sleep on same time exercise in the form of yoga, cycling, swimming, gym etc.Till lock down do suryanamaskar every day. for this homeopathy offers good results. Consult online.

Hello .tell me about his current medicines. I suggest you to start homeopathic treatment for him along with allopathic medicines for fast recovery. Avoid rice. Give priority to foods with a low glycaemic index (e.g. Vegetables, whole wheat pasta/noodles). Avoid fried foods. Limit consumption of foods high in sugar, carbohydrates and fat. Choose lean proteins (eg. Fish, meat, eggs, milk, beans after fully cooked). Eat green, leafy vegetables eat fruits in two or three servings. You can consult me online for best homeopathic treatment.

lybrate-user, thanks for the query. The glucose values mentioned are too high, which means current therapy is inadequate. Therefore we will have to look at all the aspects of the treatment. Which includes dietary habit, caloric intake, weight, height and extent of daily exercise, lipid profile, bp readings plus serum creatinine and urea and hba1c%. I am sure you must be aware that in a well controlled diabetes patient fbg should be < 100 mgor closer to 100 mg, pp should be 150 to 170 mg & hba1c% <6.5 % at your age and for people over 60 years <7%. Therefore, with given information I will not be able advise or give any suggestions. Plus in this communication we are supposed to give only general guidelines, no drugs can be either recommended or prescribed. For that you need to come in a private conversation (paid consultation) with all the above mentioned details, then I will be able to do the needful. Or else please consult your local physician and get the treatment upgraded. I am sure you are aware how important so please take necessary action. Thanks. It is to have a well controlled blood glucose, mainly to remain fit and prevent long term complications associated with diabetes affecting all vital organs and systems.

Along with medicines follow diabetes diet which simply means eating the healthiest foods in moderate amounts and sticking to regular mealtimes.

Apples. Berries. Citrus fruits. Papaya. U should avoid sugar-sweetened beverages. Sugary beverages are the worst drink choice for someone with diabetes. Trans fats sugar, cake, pastries mithai/sweets chocolate fruits like mango, litchi etc. White bread, pasta fruit-flavored yogurt. Sweetened breakfast cereals. Flavored coffee drinks. Honey 1. Don't take tea empty stomach. Eat something like a banana (if you are not diabetic) or soaked almonds or any seasonal fruit. No only biscuits or rusk will not do. 2. Take your breakfast every day. Don't skip it. 3.
