Your age is mentioned as 14 yrs and 5 months. Is it correct? since when you have diabetes? are on insulin injection if so which is it and the dosage? there are mainly two types of diabetes t1 where only insulin injections have to be given and this usually occurs in very young age. Can occur at alittle older age but rare. In this condition beta cells are not producing any insulin. T2 is seen commonly and occurs at a later age. In this sugar can be controlled by oral anti diabetics and in some insulin may be needed. Since you are so young, please tell me if insulin assay has been done meaning have checked c-peptide level in your blood? that will tell if any insulin is produced at all. Also tell me your weight and height. Then I will be able to guide.

Mr Nadir, Blood sugar control or diabetes control, needs specific drugs plus dietary restriction and regular exercise. The drugs will depend on type of diabetes and blood sugar levels. In case of T1 diabetes only Insulin injections are to be taken and for T2 DM either oral or Insulin injections or both may be needed. If you want any specific advice, please come in a private conversation with details like fasting and PP sugar levels, HbA1c%, present drugs with dosage, dietary pattern and extent of daily physical activity.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Hello intact slimming pills are not much help. You have to reduce your dietary intake by 15 to 20 per cent daily, then increase your exercise to about one and half hour at least 5 to 6 days a week. Totally avoid deep fried foods and direct sweets. Target a reduction of 2 kg per month. Then you may be able achieve it.

Dear lybrate user, one of the major nutritional substance required for human body is carbohydrate. We take carbohydrate in the form of rice, wheat, sugar etc. The complex molecules of carbohydrate are broken down into simple glucose molecules during digestion & released in the blood stream to be absorbed by the muscle cells. Muscle cells utilise the glucose molecules to release energy by breaking down those glucose molecules. Insulin hormone plays a vital role in the absorption of the glucose molecules by the muscle cells. In abnormal conditions, either due to less production of insulin or due to resistance to insulin, the process of absorption of glucose by the muscles comes to a stand still. The glucose molecules remains in the bloodstream which results in the increase in the blood sugar level. The failure of utilisation of the glucose molecules by the muscle cells results in production of less energy than normal condition. This is externally manifested as the fatigue & tiredness of the patient. This excess amount of blood sugar compels the kidney to function more than normal level in order to excrete the blood sugar molecules through urine. As a result the patient suffers from frequent urination. This abnormal condition is clinically known as diabetes mellitus. Once a patient is diagnosed with diabetes he has to take regular medicine to keep his blood sugar level within normal limits. Your freind needs to take homoeopathic mother tincture gymnema sylvestra q, 30 drops, thrice daily, after meals, in a cup of water. Also he should walk at least 1 hour daily without any interval. Also he should to take a low carbohydrate rich diet. He should avoid rice, sweet dishes, fruits, cold drinks, fast foods, alcoholic beverages, potato etc.

Vaginal Discharge - Can IUDs Cause It?

MBBS, DNB - Obstetrics and Gynaecology
Gynaecologist, Mumbai
Vaginal Discharge - Can IUDs Cause It?

There are certain glands in the vaginal walls and uterine cervix of a woman, which cleanse the vagina by producing a small amount of fluid. This clear or milky white coloured vaginal discharge is normal for a healthy woman if it doesn’t smell unpleasant. But if you observe that the colour, consistency, odour or amount of your vaginal discharge differs from usual, it may indicate an infection or a disease.

Here are 6 common factors behind abnormal vaginal discharge.

1. Bacterial vaginosis
Bacterial vaginosis is a medical condition characterised by agray discharge, which has a lingering fish-like odour. Moreover, if you experience irritation and burning sensation in the vagina, which is increased by intercourse, it’s a strong indication of bacterial vaginosis.

2. Yeast Infection
It often happens that your vaginal area’s natural bacterial balance is disturbed due to certain factors such as use of antibiotics, decreased immunity, stress, uncontrolled diabetes or consumption of excessive sugary foods. This results in yeast overgrowth in the vagina, known as simply yeast infection or candidiasis. It’s characterised by a thick and whitish-grey discharge from the vagina.

3. Gonorrhoea
Caused by the bacteria Neisseria Gonorrhoea, this sexually transmitted disease (STD) is an infection, which causes vaginal discharge of an intense odour. Other symptoms of this disease include feeling of pain while urinating, chills, fever and irregular discharge of menstrual fluids. If left untreated, gonorrhoea can transform into a pelvic inflammatory disease and can even lead to infertility.

4. Genital Herpes
Genital herpes, a sexually transmitted disease (STD) that leads to formation of small watery blisters on the vaginal area, and causes irritation, itching and pain while having intercourse or urinating, may also be the cause of a vaginal discharge of watery texture.

5. Atrophic Vaginitis
After menopause, there’s a considerable decrease in oestrogen levels of the body along with the occurrence of changes in tissues of the vaginal cavity. This medical condition, known as atrophic vaginitis, can lead to a watery vaginal discharge, which can sometimes get bloody. Some other symptoms of this disease are vaginal inflammation and thinning or atrophy of tissues.

6. Infected IUD
In some situations, it may happen that the intrauterine device (IUD- a form of contraceptive) inserted in the body of a woman can get infected. This results in a purulent discharge (pus) from the vagina. Getting the IUD removed as soon as possible is the best thing to be done in this situation.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

My father is 65yrs old. He is sugar patiant. We done angiography from brahamananda hospital in jharkhand & found 3 blockage. Dr. Perwez alam suggest operation (by pass surgery). But we are not sure that it is good for dad or not. Please advice me what we do ?

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology

Hello, if the blocks are severe it is necessary to get operated. 65 years is not very old age and with proper control of blood sugar particularly just before operative procedure, during operation and after surgery for a days. The concerned doctors will ensure that. Hence it is better to under go surgery.

You might be prediabetic, did you get the urine sugar test done in the lab too. If not get a fasting urine sugar done. It might be renal glucosuria or a reduced in the glucose threshold for the kidneys. Please also get a serum creatinine, and blood urea done done too. Do not worry let us analyze it properly.

Well in any case the news is not good. PP in all labs is above the limit. Fasting on average is also high. This is classical presentation of Increase level of sugar in blood, aka- Diabetes Mellitus. You shall see a qualified physician around and start your medications at the earliest. The difference is lab reports also varies depending upon what food you had during that same week. Please start the medicine as early as possible. There is nothing to be afraid you will have to take medicine and a simple per day is nothing to have a normal life. Rest your doctor will advise you on examination. You can also follow: 1. Walk for 30 -40 min in morning and evening. 2. Have low quantities of sugar, rice, potato and anything sweet. 3. Take small meals avoid over eating. 4. Try to keep yourself occupied in some work or other, anything of your choice. 5. Have lots of salads comprising of stuffs advised by your doctor.
