@sikhar I hope you will be able to reverse your high glucose levels to normal levels. Apart from medication, I would like to suggest following a healthy lifestyle as this is more of a lifestyle disease. Few changes like regularise sleep patterns, lite aerobic exercises, and stress management with a strict low carb zero sugar diet is what make you achieve normal sugar levels more easily.

RE: Male Contraceptive Pill Appears Feasible in Very Early Trials
@trina There is a huge unmet need in terms of male contraceptive methods. There is still a long way to go on this research path. While the phase 1 studies have shown tolerability, the biology involved in suppressing sperm production suggests that men would need to take these pills daily for about 3 months at the very beginning of contraceptive treatment, until adequate sperm suppression is achieved to prevent pregnancy.
Berries, Red Wine Linked to Lower Mortality in Parkinson's Disease
Berries, red wine, and other foods rich in flavonoids are associated with a lower risk for death in patients with Parkinson's disease (PD), new research suggests. In a prospective analysis of more than 1200 participants with an eventual PD diagnosis, those who ate three or more servings of flavonoid-rich foods a week had a 70% lower mortality vs those consuming one or fewer servings of such foods per month.
RE: AI System Helps Spot Signs of Heart Transplant Rejection
@gilli Endomyocardial biopsy screening is the standard of care for detecting cardiac allograft rejection, but manual interpretation of surveillance endomyocardial biopsies remains a challenge, the authors note. Experts often disagree on whether or not the patient is rejecting the allograft and on the degree of severity of rejection when present. Overestimation of rejection can lead to patient anxiety, overtreatment and unnecessary follow-up biopsies, whereas underestimation can lead to delays in treatment and worse outcomes.
RE: Infectious Disease Is an Increasing Threat From Climate Change
@gilli Sea level rise, more frequent and severe hurricanes, storm surges, and extreme precipitation all can lead to contaminated water and destruction of essential infrastructure. In addition to drowning and injuries from the storms themselves, these changes have mental health consequences, and can lead to gastrointestinal and other illnesses, including water-borne infectious disease. The distribution and prevalence of vector-borne diseases also will shift with changes in temperature, precipitation, and other weather patterns.
RE: Aerobic Training Boosts the Power of Antihypertensive Drugs
@iraban Hypertension ranks as the leading preventable cause of premature death, affecting some 30% of the adult population worldwide, and costing an estimated $370 billion per year. In addition, there is a tendency to reduce blood pressure only by means of blood pressure-lowering drugs rather than using scientific, evidence-based lifestyle interventions.
'Move More, Sit Less' Counseling Can Change Habits in Diabetes!
Among sedentary patients with type 2 diabetes, those who received regular counseling sessions from an exercise specialist who advised them how to move more and sit less over the course of 3 years made lasting improvements in these health habits, compared with those who only received advice about physical activity from their physicians once a year.
'Dose-Response' Between Exercise and Improvement in Diabetes
The more patients with type 2 diabetes exercise, the greater their drop in A1c, according to a new post-hoc analysis of data collected during 6 months of supervised exercise. This dose–response relationship between exercise and reductions in A1c held firm for those who did aerobic training or a mixture of aerobic and resistance exercises (combined), but not for those who only did resistance exercises.
Infection after ear piercing, how to treat this?
Hello, how to treat infection after ear piercing? Getting your ears pierced is usually a simple, safe procedure. But a new piercing is an open wound that requires care and good hygiene.

Is HbA1c a better test for diabetics?
Hello, Is HbA1c a better test for diabetics? For people without diabetes, the normal range for the hemoglobin A1c level is between 4% and 5.6%. Hemoglobin A1c levels between 5.7% and 6.4% mean you have prediabetes and a higher chance of getting diabetes. Please explain this elaborately. I need to understand this.
