Question: Hello Docter,

I have Type2 Diabetes and currently use Glycomet GP1 ; Ecosprin AV75 ; Multi Vitamin-Mecofol Plus.

Right now my sugar level is - FPS - 135 ; Post Lunch 225

I plan for my second child hence I consulted Urologist /Infertility Specialist and was advised to use medications/supplements as below
coenzyme Q and other vitamin supplements like Maxoza L for 3 months. Dose can be 2 times a day.

Does these vitamin supplements affect my diabetes in any way ? Can I stop using the Multi Vitamin-Mecofol Plus which currently I am using once i start using the other supplements - coenzyme Q and Maxoza L ?

Regards,


doctor

Brief Answer:
Multivitamin supplement wont affect diabetes control.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thanks for your question.
Noted your concern.

As such multivitamin supplement wont affect diabetes control but it may help in prevention of diabetes related complications like neuropathy.

One can stop Mecofol Plus once you start Coenzyme Q and Maxoza L.

Mecofol Plus contains Mecobalamin, Alpha Lipoic Acid, Pyridoxine, Folic Acid.
And Maxoza L contains L carnitine with amino acids and multivitamins.

I may suggest consult your diabetologist as there is need for better blood sugar control.

Hope this helps you.

Regards,
Dr Abhay Mali.

I was diagnosed with having a small stroke. MRI confirmed a CT scan results from an ER visit July 2013. I am a 47 female, was diagnosed with Lupus sle as well as rheumatoid arthritis last march I do take methotrexate injections once a week, plaquenil, folic acid, iron, magnesium, and baby aspirin. I do not see my neurologist until mid May, and I know I have enough on my unhealthy plate so to speak as it is ...I have had these symptoms since last Jan 2012 they have come and gone over periods of time. My Dr will def remember us discussing this because Ive asked him to clarify what to look for in regards stroke symptoms. Is it the entire one side of body ? or a part of one side whether it s a limb, limbs weakness? , or side of face, weakness pins needles numbness ? Because I ve felt this for quite sometime but I have to say it s constant now. I feel pins, needles and numbness around left eye, hairline toy cheekbone for days at a time and now the past few weeks it s been constant! What symptoms that are newest to me are this hear sensation that radiates across my scalp. Just keeps going back and forth. .and when it s all over after about two days literally it has left me with a migraine. Lastly, I ve never experienced this hip & leg pain also on right side along with these spasms that awakens me in the middle of the night where I can t even move or stretch out my leg to get up to go to the bathroom which is why I am trying to get up in the first place. Some new symptoms and some old but def much longer time periods I feel them then last year. I can best describe the leg pain in the middle of night as excruciating stabbing deep muscle pain along with these pins, needles, & chills in my legs. My question is could something else be going on ? Because I know my lupus dr will say these aren t lupus symptoms!

Hello Dr, Iam a 53-year old woman. My skin is comparatively very dry. Since my teenage I am having some itching and irritation at different parts of my feet and elbows and on right knee. I approached many skin specialists, and tried many ointments. They all give temporary cure. A few weeks back, I consulted with a skin specialist and he recommended to take a biopsy to distinguish whether it is eczema or psoriasis; it is confirmed as psoriasis. I did my LFT and having no problem, sonography of my stomach was also conducted, and having no problem.. Now the doctor prescribed Oncortex 7.5 (once in a week for 3 weeks) and Tablet Folic acid 5 mg twice in a week. When I checked Oncortex in the web, i happened to see its side effects. So slightly confused whether to take or not. I need your advice. My dr also said to consult with him after 3 weeks. Hope nothing will happened to me harmful. I have blood pressure and cholesterol, taking medicines for them regularly. Moreover, I am taking tablets for once in a month for Vit B12 deficiency.
