Normally fasting blood sugar is upto 100 mg - 118 mg. After food 126 to 140 mg% is generally ok. Regularly have blood sugar at early morning fasting, 2 hours after morning principal meal and just before dinner inform your doctor about these readings if they are too less or too high than range given above. Get average sugar levels estimated by hba1c once in 3-6 months which should be around 6.5 and less than 7 keep it at these levels.

There are many medications oral drugs and insulin to control diabetes. There is no medication to prevent diabetes or time limit for wellness. That is obtained by healthy diet, exercise and monitoring blood glucose. Medication. The treatment is individualised.

Diabetes and its Management with the Help of Ayurveda

Diabetes and its Management with the Help of Ayurveda

When the sugar concentration in the blood increases suddenly and unreasonably, the resulting condition is known as diabetes. Sugar or glucose is generally used in order to provide much needed energy to our bodies. But when the pancreas dysfunctions, it leads to a problem in the insulin production. As a result, glucose or sugar gets directly absorbed into the blood, instead of getting absorbed by insulin. And this leads to the condition of diabetes.

As an ancient science based on lifestyle related treatment methods that include herbs, massages and life changing tweaks, Ayurveda also provides various methods of managing this ailment. Here's how!

  1. Bitter Gourd: Known as an ingredient that is rich in antioxidants, this can be consumed to take care of diabetes. You will need to first remove the peel of at least four to five bitter gourds before crushing them to create a paste. This paste has to be put through a sieve so that the juice of the gourds can be extracted. You will then have to drink this juice every morning, on an empty stomach.
  2. Cinnamon: From treating coughs and colds to diabetes and other serious ailments, this is a wonder spice that can be found in most Indian kitchens. You can start by boiling a litre of water and letting it simmer on the gas for about twenty minutes. Thereafter, you can add three teaspoons of cinnamon powder to this simmering water. Strain this mixture and drink the entire batch every day to clear out the toxins.
  3. Fenugreek Seeds: For this, you will need to take about four to five tablespoons of fenugreek seeds. These will have to be soaked in a glass of water or about 250ml of water, overnight. In the morning, the softened seeds will need to be crushed before the mixture is strained. The water that escapes should be collected and ingested every day for a period of two months.
  4. Turmeric: Turmeric is a powerful and well known ingredient that is used for curing and managing many ailments. You will need to mix about half a teaspoon of turmeric powder with one teaspoon of amla powder as well as half a tablespoon of methi seeds or fenugreek seeds powder. This concoction will have to mixed in half a glass of water and taken daily on an empty stomach. This can be used by patients suffering from heart ailments as well.
  5. Diet: Cereals like ragi, corn, kulit, green millet, and barley are known to beneficial for patients suffering from diabetes. Leafy greens are also a must for such patients along with protein-rich foods like soya beans.

She doesn't need insulin at this stage. To control the blood sugar, she should avoid much sweets in food. Lower the amount of sugar in tea and other food items. Also, rice should be avoided. Eat more jamuns. They help in controlling diabetes.

Hello, TSH level seems to be fairly low. If you are not having any symptoms, then you may continue the same dose. Then check TSh after another 8 weeks later, if it is still very low, then dose may be reduced by about a small fraction. Thanks.

The dose of Thyroid meds depends upon your Lab parameters (Free T3, FreeT4, TSH, etc) and on symptoms. I would recommend a detailed consultation and comprehensive work up if you want optimal results.
