Homeopath 's  Response
welcome to the healthcare nagic forum,diabetes is not a curable diases but can be very well controlled with homeopathy medicines,and your father will need to have his allopathy medicines continue and its doses can be redused when we have a fairly well control sugar levels,you haven't mentioned his current blood sugar levels and the symptoms he is getting ,which signifies the progression of the disease.

defenately with homeopathy your father will have a better control on the sugar levels .

Homeopath Dr. Swati Ramkumar's  Response
Diabetes is a metabolic disease characterized by hyperglycemia. Studies have proved that, patients taking only allopathic medicines showed blood sugar level control of 47 % while patients on combination of both homeopathy and allopathy showed control of 97 % along with significant drop in the complications.
Also with allopathic medicines, the dosage of hypoglcemic agents keeps on increasing with different combinations. Homeopathy when used in combination with allopathy , definitely helps in better control of the sugar levels and minimizes complication. It is not advisable to discontinue any medicines to begin with. As the homeopathic treatment proceeds, the dosage can be reduced after regular Blood sugar levels monitoring!!!
I would suggest a visit to an experienced homeopath for a detailed case history and treatment.

Hi,Dr saiyad,
If homeopathy work in diabetes why are you asking to continue alopathy medicine,dose can be reduced while continue the alopathy treatment too.
I believe if you totally stop alopathy medicine and only homeopathy medicine.
You can not do this because you afraid of severe diabetic complications threatening to life.
ok and bye.

Once the allopathic medidicine is started then to discontinue it you have to remain under observation and tapper off the dose. In ayurveda seeds of fenugreek 1 tsf crushed and soaked over night and taken early morning controls blood sugar. Many combination for cure are now in market. Neem Cap. brings the level to normal. There are many compounds but can be prescribed after knowing total history.
