The medicine which is prescribed depends on the severity of blood glucose levels along with age and other medical conditions.

Hi wellcome to HCM.
For DM details report and present medicine she is taking is important toknow. But in
general diet control like avoiding sweets, sugar, low calori diet with plenty of green
leafy vegetables salad, avoiding fatty foods, avaoiding cold drinks, ice cream,high
calori fruits etc will help her. daily exercise minimum for 30 to 45 minuites will help
her. For bakache you may give her some pain killer like paracetamol or ibuprofen. Thanks

I m using a Lidoderm patch for (light) shoulder pain. I had a rotator cuff tear surgery in Oct. 2013. At times I get pain in the shoulder (while exercising and/or playing tennis). Is Lidoderm the same as ibuprofen except it is in a patch form? Thanks for replying.

Hi, it has been a week now since I donated blood and there is terrible bruising along the side and right above where they placed the needle. There is also a stiff tightening pain as I move my arm that goes from my elbow up towards my shoulder. I ve taken aspirin and ibuprofen occasionally to try and ease the pain but nothing has helped. I even tried icing it on and off the first few days after, which was recommended by our American Red Cross donation center. Should I be concerned?
