1 : Natural Ways to Prevent and Treat Headaches

Anyone who's ever had a headache (and that's 90% of the entire population, according to some estimates) knows that they can range from nagging to debilitating. The most common type is a tension headache, a mild, constricting feeling around your head that's often caused by holding your neck in a tight position. Migraines, on the other hand, tend to be both intense and recurring. Medication is one way to treat your discomfort, but there are also plenty of natural ways—like the tricks listed here—that can help you head off the ache.

Following should be done :
1.Eat small, frequent meals
2.Take Rest
3. Ice your forehead
4. Take a hot shower
5. Get a massage
6. Try acupressure
7. Go easy on the alcohol
8. Stay hydrated
9. Maintain a healthy weight
10. Keep stress levels low

2 : I suffer from fatigue, extreme thirst, frequent urination and unexplained weight loss and yet have no diabetes?

 "The World Health Organization (WHO) has said that someone has impaired glucose tolerance if they have:

a fasting blood glucose of less than 7 mmol/L, AND
a blood glucose of 7.8 mmol/L or more but less than 11.1mmol/L after a two-hour oral GTT.

a blood glucose 11.1 mmol/L or more after a two-hour oral glucose tolerance test (GTT)"

3 : Does a high serum insulin level mean you have diabetes?

Best Answer:  High insulin levels could mean hyperinsulinemia. This is connected to metabolic syndrome, insulin resistance, and Type 2 diabetes.

It does not by itself mean that you have diabetes. All it means is that your body produces high amounts of insulin. A healthy pancreas can go on producing high amounts of insulin indefinitely. But in some people, who have a genetic predisposition to diabetes, this high production of insulin will tire out their pancreas and they will go on to develop Type 2 diabetes. It is entirely possible to over produce insulin and never get diabetes.

As to how to reduce insulin levels? Well, all you have to do is cut out foods which stimulate production of insulin. That means all carbohydrates, i.e. ALL bread, grains, cereals, rice, potatoes, corn, pasta, noodles, most fruits, all sugars, and everything made from any of those ingredients.

To give a real life menu example, a meal of tandoori chicken with naan bread and pilau rice will stimulate a high insulin level because of the bread and the rice.

If your goal is to reduce serum insulin, then a better meal choice will be tandoori chicken with onion salad, green salad, chopped tomatoes, and cucumber raita.
