Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. I have gone through the details given. I do see you really have a problem, which is directly related to drinking alcohol (whether beer or otherwise) and consumption of pan packets. Secondly there is no mention about your blood glucose control. No fasting, PP glucose levels and HbA1c% as well as no mention of current treatment (quantitity & type of Insulin being taken as you have T1 DM). Plus you are also stating there is some problem with liver which I am sure is a direct consequence of excess alcohol consumption. However, all the information is very general. There are no specifics like liver function test reports, blood glucose levels, LFT values, drugs being taken with dosage. All these are required for making any meaningful suggestion or for giving an advise. However, othing is sure and that is you will have to STOP alcohol (in whatever form) totally. Similarly pan and tobacco products too have to be stopped. Blood glucose has to be controlled effectively. (fasting < 100 mg, PP 150 to 160 mg & HbA1c% <6.8). Exercise regularly and take balanced and healthy diet. If you want any specific advise please come in a private conversation (paid consultation) with all the above mentioned relevant details then I will be able to do the needful. Thanks.

Mr. lybrate-user, It is clear from your blood glucose level that there is diabetes. Once diabetes is present, then treatment with drugs is absolutely essential. Plus diet control and exercise are also needed. Lipid profile also shows high LDL. It is necessary to maintain fasting glucose around 100 mg, PP 150 to 160 mg & HbA1c%<6.8. Otherwise long term complications of diabetes related to various organs are bound to set in more rapidly. Even your weight is more with a BMI of 26.98 kgs/M2. Ideal body weight at your age and height should be 69 kgs. If you are interested in appropriate treatment please come back with following details: current fasting, PP blood glucose level, HbA1c%, present dietary pattern, &extent of daily exercise. Based on those details I will be able to advise necessary treatment. Thankks.

Dear Lybrateuser, - Your blood sugar levels & Hb1ac levels are very high, consult your treating physician as you may require change of dose or medication - also consult a dietician for your exact dietary requirements as a proper diet will help in regulating blood sugar levels - also do regular exercises walking, yoga to control the blood sugar level - check blood sugar levels as advised & take medicines on time.

Diabetic Nephropathy - Who is at Risk of Acquiring it?

Diabetic Nephropathy - Who is at Risk of Acquiring it?

Diabetes is a lifestyle disease that is very prevalent in the current generation. According to a report by the World Health Organisation (WHO), the number of people with diabetes has risen from 108 million in 1980 to 422 million in 2014. The global prevalence of diabetes among adults over 18 years of age has risen from 4.7% to 8.5% from 1980 to 2014. Diabetes should not be taken lightly as it can affect other body organs besides the pancreas, such as the kidneys. Diabetic nephropathy refers to damage to your kidneys caused by diabetes, and may also lead to kidney failure in various cases.

Causes of diabetic nephropathy
Not everyone who suffers from diabetes will suffer from diabetic nephropathy. The main function of the kidneys is to filter waste from your blood. However, this is not always the case. Due to high a concentration of blood sugar caused by diabetes, several blood vessels in the kidney are destroyed, thereby, preventing the kidneys from carrying out its job. Over time, the kidneys may stop working altogether, resulting in kidney failure. If you are diabetic, the probability of you suffering from diabetic nephropathy will increase if you smoke or have high blood pressure or high cholesterol.

Catching it early
Today, diabetic nephropathy is the leading cause of chronic kidney disease in the US and other western countries. Since the symptoms of this condition aren’t visible in its early stages, you need to undergo urine tests on a regular basis. If detected early, the effects of diabetic nephropathy can be reversed. Common symptoms of this disease include the following:

  • Swelling in legs and feet
  • Detection of albumin in urine
  • Decline in glomerular filtration rate (GFR)
  • Elevated arterial blood pressure

What are the treatment options?
Medication to lower the blood pressure is the most commonly prescribed form of treatment suggested by doctors to prevent or slow the damage to your kidneys. There are other lifestyle changes that you may have to undertake in order to keep a check on the condition:

  • Limit sugar intake and keep blood sugar levels within the target range
  • Exercise regularly and work towards keeping your heart healthy
  • Limit protein intake, as it could put extra pressure on your kidneys
  • Limit salt intake to control blood pressure
  • Quit smoking and drinking

Diabetes is an unfortunate condition to have to live with. But don’t let it bog you down! With these simple lifestyle changes and taking care of your general well-being, you can beat the disease and emerge a winner!

Mr. Lybrate-user, usually insulin injection is prescribed when blood glucose is not well controlled with oral drugs. So it is rather difficult to shift totally on to oral anti diabetic drugs. We may have to look at the total treatment, diet, exercise and fasting, pp glucose levels and hba1c%. Thanks.

Diabetes - Ayurvedic Treatment For It!

Diabetes - Ayurvedic Treatment For It!

Diabetes is a metabolic disorder which is characterized by high blood sugar levels in the body. This occurs when the glucose in the body is not converted into energy due to the impaired functioning of insulin in the body. Insulin is a hormone in the body produced by the pancreas which processes sugar in the body. Impaired functioning of the insulin leads to a rise in blood sugar levels, thus leading to diabetes.

Symptoms-

The symptoms of diabetes differ from person to person, depending on how high one’s blood sugar levels are. Diabetes exhibits various symptoms such as frequent urges to urinate, extreme hunger, rapid weight loss and irritability. Fatigue, blurred-vision and increased thirst are some other common symptoms as well. Diabetes also slows down the healing process of any sore or injury in the body.

Causes-

The cause of diabetes is linked to improper functioning of insulin. There are four types of diabetes and each comes with its own set of causes:

Type 1 Diabetes-

In Type 1 diabetes, the immune system of the body starts to attack the healthy pancreatic cells which produce insulin. This reduces the insulin production in the body, causing a rise in the blood sugar levels.

Type 2 Diabetes and Pre-diabetes-

The causes for Pre-diabetes and Type 2 diabetes are very similar. In both the cases, the body starts becoming resistant to insulin, and the normal production of insulin cannot make up for this. This leads to accumulation of sugar in the blood, leading to diabetes.

Gestational Diabetes-

During pregnancy, a woman’s body produces hormones which play a major role in sustaining the pregnancy to a full term. However, these hormones tend to affect the functioning of insulin, leading to a rise in blood sugar.

Ayurvedic Treatment For Balancing Blood Sugar Level-

Ayurvedic treatments to regulate blood sugar aim to get your blood sugar levels under control and improve your overall health. As they are made from natural ingredients, these remedies do not have any side-effects unlike conventional treatments. The Ayurvedic remedies are:

  1. Diet: Maintaining a healthy diet is very important to get blood sugar under control. Avoid eating simple sugars as they spike blood sugar levels; instead of opting for fiber and complex carbohydrates such as whole grains and vegetables.

  2. Exercise: Regular exercise helps in keeping blood sugar in check, as it burns calories. You can opt for cardiovascular or weight training to burn calories and keep your metabolic rate elevated. A high metabolic rate means good amount of calories burned by the body at rest.

  3. Herbs: There are certain herbs that you can consume (in different forms) to control diabetes. Herbs such as ‘neem’ and ‘fenugreek’ (methi) seeds, if incorporated in the daily diet in prescribed dosages, can be beneficial in getting your blood sugar in check. Turmeric is another herb which has anti-inflammatory properties that can treat this condition by reducing body resistance to insulin and increasing insulin production by the pancreas. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an ayurveda and ask a free question.

Hi, I wish your father a speedy recovery first of all. Its the hormonal response through which he doesn't feel like to eat. My suggestion would be give him the food which he used to like in his childhood and he likes now. Talking about diabetes, if its type 1 you need to make sure he's eating proper dinner and breakfast like scrambled eggs with 1 multigrain chappati etc and for breakfast ragi dosa with coconut chutney etc. Also educate him that if he doesn't eat he will not recover fast. For recovery make sure he takes all his vitamins and eat food like eggs, chicken, fish, tofu, soya, paneer, sweet potatoes, black beans, quinoa, oats, olive oil, desi ghee etc. Please make sure you take care of these things as the person who's suffering never takes care of himself so you should be the one who should be looking after it. There are many plans for a diabetic person and for a speedy recovery, if you need any assistance do not hesitate to get in touch with and ill be glad to assist you.
