  • Om Sai Ram,


    My dear Sai family,

    I am unlike you of the firm belief that Allopathy does not have the answers to all problems.I believe taking Baba's vibhuthi is in itself the cure for all problems.There is also much to be praised about Ayurveda and Homeopathy..I trust in these modalities of therapy as well.
    I am an allopathic doctor with a speciality in Cardiology.If any devotees have any questions or want any clarification, I via media Baba will be humbled in answering your queries.

    With the deepest affection to all my sai bandhus and beyond..

    Dear Saibhandu,

    Kindly suggest based on your experience working with type 2 diabetes, if any.  I Baba's grace, I have been able to take Baba's udi (vibhuthi) with water and also apply it almost every day.  Many thanks in advance.

    Om Sai Ram.

    Dear Sai Bandhu,

    Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus is more to do with insulin resistance ( wherein our cells do not accept the insulin produced ) as it has to gradually decreasing insulin levels.There are many people at different steps of this disorder.The early ones in whom dietary restrictions coupled with exercise is enough to those taking medications.Broadly there are groups of drugs till now.

    1) Sulfonylureas: Daonil(trademark) is an example.They try to stimulate our beta cells of the Islets of Langrehans in the pancreas to secrete more insulin and to some extent facilitate the uptake of glucose by our cells.

    2) Biguanides: These are used extensively and even have some conditions where they are prescribed for non diabetic disease states.

    3) Glitazones: another group that help in insulin secretion and reducing insulin resistance.They do have side effects like water retention and therefore may lead to swelling of the feet etc.One such drug ROSIGLITAZONE ealier used is now banned by the US FDA.There are some cardiovascular side effects too.

    Other products like Acarbose that absorb the glucose in the intestine are also used, they cause bloating and nausea in some.

    4) More recently DPPI have come into the market.They are pretty expensive ( trademark ONGLYZA ).They are being prescribed rampantly as all new drugs do but despite studies and scientific literature they are yet to prove themselves in the long run.

    5) Lastly Insulin, in various forms (re-combinant human DNA) are resorted to if blood sugar levels are not maintained.

    The targets are a completely fasting blood glucose <110mg/dl and a 2 hour post meal blood glucose level<140.HbA1C is a diagnostic tool and reflects general diabetic control over the past 3 months: target < 7.0 at least.

    Apart from these it is important to maintain a healthy dietary and exercise routine (indeed they are the milestones that are the key )Weight reduction to your optimal Body Mass Index (BMI ) is recommended.

    Your consumption of Vibhuthi with a glass of water is preciously important.There is no denying that.Baba is all pervasive and most benevolent to his devotees.However Baba also told us to maintain our body so that our mind and thought remains healthy. Please do check your blood glucose (fasting and post prandial) once a month.If they continue to remain normal it is wonderful.If however they are high then you need to seek a doctors guidance.

    I have been very brief..if you have any specific issues please feel free to ask.Baba bless you with the best of health.Jai Sai Ram

    Om Jai Sai Ram,

    Respected Chettnard ji,

    You have posed a very nice question.I shall attempt by Baba's grace to simplify and give a response that may help you.

    1, Diabetics and Non diabetics alike (both groups):

                Fasting Blood Sugar <  110 mg/dl

                2hours after a meal  <  140 mg/dl            HbA1C: < 6%

    In a a non diabetic this willl clearly reflect normal ranges.
    In diabetics, the above are the optimal targets.


    2. Your spouse is taking METFORMIN twice daily. This is a biguanide, and although does not promote insulin production, manages diabetes by two methods:

    a) It has an action which intrinsically allows weight reduction; namely produces some weight reduction.
    b) It reduces insulin resistance whereby much of the glucose absorbed by our intestines is facilitated easier entry into the cells of the body by a reduction of Insulin resistance ( an important key reason why Type 2 Diabetes devolops ) and therefore the utilization of glucose and it's blood glucose level reduction tends to take place.

    The key is not just medication, but timely regular diet, the 'right diet', weight reduction by exercise such as walking an hour or initially 1/2 hour daily to burn up calories.


    HEALTHY DIETARY HABITS AND DAILY EXERCISE ARE EQUALLY IMPORTANT AND WITH BABA'S BENEVOLENCE AND GRACE EVERYTHING WILL BE NORMAL.

    Healthy body and healthy soul..may Baba bless all your family with both. :)

  • ALLOPATHY HELPLINE ----OM SAI RAM

    Dear Chettnard ji,

    I am sorry that I cannot answer your question regarding the availability of homeopathic or Ayurvedic medication to cure diabetes.Personally speaking taking bitter gourd helps, but that is all possible to means which I have no knowledge of,

    Please try to understand Diabetes is a managable disease it is however not a curable disorder.Your husband is on Glyciphage twice daily.However I repeat, to try and get rid of medication he needs to to do two very important things:

    1.PROPER TIMELY DIABETIC DIET

    2.DAILY EXERCISE IS A MUST.

    HE MUST REDUCE HIS WEIGHT TO WHAT IT SHOULD BE FOR HIS HEIGHT. (BMI)
    IF WE ARE CASUAL ABOUT THIS THEN I AM AFRAID INSULIN RESISTANCE ONLY INCREASES AND THE MEDICATION LIST WILL GO UP.

    He also needs monthly blood sugars in a laboratory of good acreditation to ensure you can track his sugar control.There are adjunctive medication such as anti cholesterol drugs and aspirin he should take, I shall write about the neccesity of these in my next post.

    Baba will ensure your husband's health. His devotion will lead him to the right path.I shall pray for your family and husband in particular.Sai Ram and Baba always bless you.

    Regards,

    Dr.R.Vishwanath

  • ALLOPATHY HELP LINE ------ OM SAI RAM

    Dear Chettnard ji,

    I had mentioned the that I would give up a follow up post regarding further precautions a diabetic should take.Briefly put here are some of them:

    1. It is always important that a diabetic not only maintains his sugar control as tightly as possible.Diabetics have a tendency to increased cholesterol levels as well, and it is mandatory for them to get their FASTING LIPID PROFILE checked.Regardless of the reference ranges given by the laboratory the recommendations are:   Total Cholesterol< 160                             
                                     LDL                 < 100(some recommend < 70 if there are more risk factors.)
                                     HDL                 > 45 (at least above 40)
                                     Triglycerides     < 160

    Not only is a raised LDL and/or Triglycerides harmful, a low HDL is an independant risk factor for cholesterol deposition.It is important to take adjunctive medication : Atorvostatin/Rosuvastatin 10 mg at bed time is a must. If Triglycerides are also elevated then addition of Fenofibrate is neccessary.These drugs are for life time.Have your cholesterol checked initially 6 monthly and then annually.CPK levels and Liver Function tests to see that these are not causing any side effects should be carried out initially

    2. It is also important that Aspirin be taken at a dose of 75 mg(dosage varies depending on the country you reside) as in some countries lower doses of Aspirin are prescribed.This should be taken daily after lunch.The role of Aspirin is very crucial.Acidiity accompanying this medication may be thwarted by other medication, if the acidity is not tolerated.

    3.It is important to get Serum creatinine and a routine urine exam as this will reveal any affectation of the kidneys.If proteins are found then taking a group of drugs such as ACE Inhibitors or ARB ( Angiotension receptor blockers ) retards the progrssion of kidney dysfunction.

    4. It is also important to get : Retinal examination by an Opthalmologist annually.
                                             A comprhensive health check annually.
                                             ( these are usually as a part of diabetic check up in most hospitals)
                                             Cardiac Screen

    5. More importantly remember, remember, remember: DIET, EXERCISE AND WEIGHT REDUCTION.
                                                                           Stop any tobacco consumption.
                                                                           Alcohol is best to be abstained from consumption.
    Some people and there is a lot of controversy that moderation in alcohol consumtion is ok, such as a glass of red wine.However if you take the whole picture then abstinence is best.Baba always advocated the non-consumption of such intoxicating habits.

    Many people will say that all these drugs have side effects and better resort to alternative therapy.Let me assure you that the side effects are far outweighed by the use of these medication and adoption of such life style changes.It is always wiser to listen to a qualified person rather than your neighbour,relative or a close friend.They may mean well but they are not you and it is you who will have to bear the brunt of the disorder.I am not trying to put you into a panic, I assure youl. It is my humble request that you take the appropriate steps now than later.
    Baba is always with you and his love to you and your family will always keep you and your family healthy.He is the Master.

    I am not a Ayurvedic doctor or Homeopathic doctor.I am sure they have their methods and I respect them for that.I have given you a summary of what is practised in the entire world.This is evidence based researched and documented proof. Our love and belief in Baba is also infinite...jai sai ram :) :) :)
