Donald asks…

Not Menopause…..?

Here are my symptoms: 51 years old, went through menopause 4 years ago. Get hot flash after lunch only. Comes and goes in about 10 minutes, Then I get EXTREMELY tired, until I get off of work. Also, my vision on the computer gets bad….I can’t keep my eyes open and I have that sick tired feeling. I am some overweight, but have started walking to get the extra weight off. Could I be borderline diabetic? Or is there something else going on? I also have horrible acid reflux, but I credit that to my weight. My stomach feels swollen all the time. As many other Americans I can’t afford health care and I am trying to manage this with exercise. Maybe there is an herbal treatment I can try? Please help! Thank you…….

answers:

You really do need to see a doctor to determine if you are insulin resistant- type 2 diabetic. It takes lab testing to make that diagnosis, and there are no herbal treatments available for it. The reflux could be aggivated by weight or diet, both of which do have some things you can do to help. Starting the diet and exercise was an excellent first step. Next, you need to cut out the fried, fatty, or sugary items- and eat multiple small meals instead of the usual three per day. You can also try the OTC medications to help decrease acid production, and something like liquid Maalox to soothe things when you do reflux. Your lunch may be aggrivating the problem if you are borderline diabetic- as the spike in blood sugar would explain your problems. For that you really do need to see the doctor. With diet, exercise and medication you could see your symptoms disappear. And with the diet and exercise, along with weight reduction, you could at some point manage to control the diabetes with diet alone- saving on the cost of the medication. The sooner you get diabetes under control, the more likely that is- and even so, the medication is still cheaper than insulin and the associated supplies that would require. In the meantime, watch the lunch foods. Go for whole grains and veggies, and eat lighter as well. Swap to a sugar replacement, skip desserts and stick to fruit. In spite of not having health insurance, you really do need to see a doctor though. Trying to self treat, with the various herbal remedies is not a good idea really. First you have to know what ails you, then you know what options you have.

William asks…

H-PYLORI…..I have been diagnosed with this..BUT..I cannot take the options for treatment…PLEASE?

DOES ANYONE KNOW ANOTHER FORM OF MAYBE HERBAL OR ANYTHING….

PLEASE I ALSO SUFFER FROM ACID REFLUX
THE ANTIBIOTICS ARE TOO HARSH FOR ME….I BECAME VERY ILL.

answers:

There is nothing natural that will cure this problem. If you want your stomach problems cured, you need to take antibiotics. There are options and you need to be talking with your physician about what options you have. And, once the H-pylori is treated, your acid reflux may also go away.
