Hi, My Father in law was recently admitted to a hospital in bangalore with a chief complaint of sweating, vomiting & dizziness. He was subjected to a batter of tests and his cardiac system was declared normal. The only problem was with his blood sugar which at the time of admission they found was 291. over a period of 24 hours it stayed around 200 after giving insulin. however his glycosylated hemoglobin test came out normal. he was asked to take glycomet twice daily. 1 week down, RBS & PPBS was repeated. RBS was in normal range & PPBS was slightly high. however the doctor increased the dose of glycomet to thrice a day. and he has also been prescribed Vertin, Clopilet, Atorva and Prolomet. I understand prolomet is for hypertension. His BP is borderline high. He is not convinced about increasing his dosage. As a result of this, we want a second opinion. what do u suggest?

However, yesterday I had a higher reading of 150/105 and earlier tonight my blood pressure spiked to 140/115 but has now dropped back down to 135/90. I was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes at age 25 with a fasting blood sugar of 185. Now my blood sugar is in close to normal levels and is treated with Metformin and diet. My A1C is also in normal ranges. I was diagnosed with high cholesterol at age 26. At diagnosis, my total cholesterol was 310. Now it is down to 210 with medication and diet. At diagnois, my LDL cholesterol was 220 and has now dropped to 135 with medications.

Hello. My husband is in post pancreatitis stage and is home leading a normal life . The cause of this illness remains a mystery to the doctors that attended to him as he does not drink alcohol and gall stones were also ruled out. My question is, what kind of foods shld he be eating? I don t want to know about diets that help lose your belly, I want to know about nutrition. What my husband does is if he gets an ache and upset tummy, he reviews what he ate over the last few meals and assumes a certain food caused and just says he wont eat it again, and this goes on til the next tummy ache. He does still take creon and he is not a diabetic at this stage based on tests that have been done. We are based in Cairns Aussie. Any advice or education on these issues wld be most appreciated. Regards Ruth Young
