Hello XXXXXX and thanks for posting the query
There are a numerous causes for dizziness/vertigo especially in diabetic patients. To give you the specific cause of dizziness. I what to know some more detail:
1. What is your sugar status at present? HbA1C or Fasting blood sugar report?
2. Any history of Cervical spondylosis?
3. Any inflammation or infection or ringing sensation in ear?
4. Any previous head trauma?

Some of the causes that are likely to be present in you are:
1. The commonest cause of dizziness is Cervical Spondylosis and can be easily treated by certain precaution.
2. You are getting your symptoms raised after exertion like massage and more importantly you are diabetic, so we have to keep in mind the arteriosclerosis vascular disease. Due to this the blood flow to the brain decreases for a period of time and causes dizziness. It may be causes due to anxiety or stress.
3. Postural Dizziness or vertigo is the other cause you have to be investigated.

All depends on your history, that what is causing the dizziness. Feel free to consult your doctor for the above said reasons and get it cured by removing the cause.
Hope this will help you. Write back if you have any other related query.

Hello Doctor,

1. What is your sugar status at present? HbA1C or Fasting blood sugar report?

My FBS was around 200. Since one week I reduced the qty of foods, which contains sugar. Now it is showing 130 around.

2. Any history of Cervical spondylosis?

Tested but No.
3. Any inflammation or infection or ringing sensation in ear?

NO

4. Any previous head trauma?

No.

It was never happening before. But it STARTED IMMEDIATELY AFTER MASSAGE, WITH IN ONE MINUTES.

Can I do some regular exercise like yoga, pranayamma, thread mill- light joging, etc... May will increase dizziness....

Any Natural treatment to cure this deceases.
Give me an advice to reduce Sugar, as it increasing by using RICE and Rice produce.
Now after this sickness started, my BP increase showing 90-130, 100-150, ext by fluctuating. Using "Cardace" 2.5 mg daily one.

Expecting your advice

Hello XXXXXX and thanks for writing again
Spot sugar testing cannot give us any idea about your blood sugar control. Get your HbA1C done every 3 months. It gives us the blood sugar status of last 12 weeks. And we can adjust the dose and diet as per the report.
Diabetes is a silent killer and gives rise to a number of diseases. As per your dizziness is concern it stop doing massage and start yoga, brisk walking or tread mill. If you feel dizziness again on exertion than you must do you carotid artery Doppler test. Please consult your doctor for that.
To control you blood sugar level follows some instructions:
1. Avoid all sugary, fatty, oily and junk foods.
2. Use sugar free products and baked food as much as you can.
3. Reduce your weight if you are overweight.
4. Check your Lipid profile once in 6 months and keep it within limit.
5. Check your HbA1c once in 3 month.
6. Use 100% fat free rice. It will not increase your rice.
7. Use olive oil or mustard oil for frying vegetables or just boil them.
8. Can take all fruits except Mango, Banana and chiku.
These all instructions also help you in reducing you Blood pressure. You have a lot of scope of increasing the medication for blood pressure. Keep a check on it and review your medication if needed. Restrict sodium diet for better blood pressure control.
The natural treatments for controlling your symptoms are Yoga, Meditation, regular exercise and other therapy in Ayurveda like panchkarma. Consult an Ayurvedic specialist for that.
Hope you got your answer to all your queries. Write back if you have other related query.
