The reports are high as you can very well see. It implies that we have to adjust the medicines to ensure that you achieve the glycemic target of Hba1c <6.5% and fasting <100 mg/dl and 2 hour post meal blood glucose <140 mg/dl. We need to achieve a good control as you are young and we want to prevent long term damage to heart kidneys and nerves.

Dear lybrate user, protein is one of the most vital nutritional substances which are required for human body. Almost every high protein diet contains purine. This purine produces uric acid on oxidation. Excess uric acid is accumulated at the joints of human beings as urate salts. This accumulation of urate salts lead to pain & swelling of those affected joints & this condition is clinically known as gout. You should avoid high protein rich diet like mutton, chicken, beef, eggs, sea fish, spinach, garden pea, tomato, lentils etc. Also you need to take homoeopathic mother tincture urtica urens q, 30 drops, thrice daily, after meals, in a cup of water. This medicine will help to dissolve the accumulated excess urate salts from the joints.

Hello lybrate-user-patients of diabetes very commonly develop neuropathy due to the long-standing nature of the disease. Neuropathy is a disorder in which the nerves start to behave erratically sending signals to the brain without the stimulus when it is called neuropathy with positive symptoms - the symptoms being burning, tingling, pins and needles, tearing in the skin etc or it could be a situation in which the nerves stop sending signals to the brain when it is neuropathy with negative symptoms- the negative symptoms being numbness, lifelessness, emptiness etc. You have a neuropathy with positive symptoms. There are two ways it has to be treated. Firstly we would like to give you relief by giving you some neuropathy medicines. Secondly we would like to give you some medicines so that the progression of this neuropathy stop at your nerves can recover from this trouble. But most importantly in all this process you have to ensure that you take proper medication so that your blood sugar remains normal. Everything hinges upon the fact that your blood sugar is normal. Without a proper control of blood sugar no matter how much you try to cure this neuropathy- things will not improve at the basic level.

Hi , Your sugar is under control. For good control fasting glucose should be less than 110 and 2 hour post prandial glucose should be less than 160. HbA1C should be less than 6.5 for your age.(HbA1C gives the average blood glucose value over the past 3 months. Glucose in your blood is stuck to Haemoglobin produced by the Red blood cells) 1) Blood glucose testing should be done once every 3months when it is under control. This should include Fasting blood glucose, 2 hour post prandial blood glucose and HbA1C. 2) if the diabetes is not under control FBG and PPBG should be done more frequently - once every 3-4 weeks. But HbA1C should be repeated only once every 3 months - it is no use repeating it early as the life span of RBC ( red blood cells) is 3 months. Hope this helps you Thank you.

Fellowship in Diabetes Management, MBBS
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 and sometimes premix insulin aren't sufficient to control diabetes. Consult if you can.

Mr. Lybrate-user kumar, this could be simple viral fever, which is invariably self limiting, does not need any major treatment. What is required is a good rest, good hydration with oral rehydraton solution, about one and half liter a day and some fever reducing tablets. The condition improves in 3 to 4 days.

If you have cough without sputum (sputum is a mixture of saliva and mucus coughed up from the respiratory tract), I would like to advise you to - 1. Take proper rest/ drink lot of fluids and take proper homemade food. 2. Do warm saline gargles 2-3 times a day for 2-3 days, if there is sore throat. 3. Take a cough syrup (grilinctus or banadryl) 10 ml three times a day for 2-3 days. 4. In case you also have headache, body-ache, or fever, take tablet paracetamol 500 mg after taking food. Maximum 3 tablets with gap of 8 hours can be taken in a day. If you have cough with sputum please follow - 1. Take proper rest/ drink hot fluids and take proper homemade food. 2. Take steamy showers, and use a humidifier. A hot shower can help a cough by loosening secretion in the nose. 3. Warm saline gargles 2-3 times a day for 2-3 days, if there is sore throat. 4. Syrup ambrodil - 1 teaspoonful three times a day for 3 days.
