Lead poisoning occurs when lead is ingested. It can also be caused by breathing in dust that contains lead. You cannot smell or taste lead. It is not visible to the naked eye. Lead used to be common in house paint and gasoline in the United States. These products are not produced with lead any longer. However, lead is still present everywhere. It is especially found in older houses. Common sources of lead include: House paint from before 1978 Toys and household items painted before 1976 Toys made and painted bullets, curtain weights, and fishing sinkers made of lead Pipes and sink faucets, which can contaminate drinking water Soil polluted by car exhaust or chipping house paint Paint sets and art supplies Jewelry, pottery, and lead figures Other types of art hobbies and projects Storage batteries Kohl or kajol eyeliners (used more in other countries) Some traditional ethnic medicines At levels above 80 µg/dL, serious, permanent health damage may occur (extremely dangerous). Between 40 and 80 µg/dL, serious health damage may be occuring, even if there are no symptoms (seriously elevated). Between 25 and 40 µg/dL, regular exposure is occuring. There is some evidence of potential physiologic problems (elevated). Between 10 and 25 µg/dL, lead is building up in the body and some exposure is occurring.

World Diabetes Day Special - 15 Ways to Effectively Manage Your Diabetes

World Diabetes Day Special - 15 Ways to Effectively Manage Your Diabetes

World Diabetes Day is celebrated on 14 November, each year. It is the primary global awareness campaign for diabetes as it is one of the major problem of today's time. With an upsurge in the number of people suffering from diabetes, the sole aim of celebrating this day is to create awareness about this disease and suggest preventive measures to those who have not acquired it and provide tips to manage it to those who are living with it. 

So, here are 15 health tips that will help you manage your diabetes effectively: 

  1. You should quit smoking as it is very bad for diabetic patients. Smoking leads to narrowing of the blood vessels, which reduces proper blood circulation.
  2. You have to track your exercise patterns. Take actual notes about your exercise habits and make necessary changes based on the record.
  3. Eliminate fast food from your diet. Avoid eating out at restaurants and avoid taking extra salt, sugar and calories. You should cook your meals at home with light ingredients and less salt and sugar.
  4. Diabetes severely affects your vision and blindness is and blindness is a serious problem which may occur. Hence, get your vision checked regularly to prevent retinopathy.
  5. Avoid having quick coffees. Fancy cups of coffee are full of sugar, which lead to glucose and insulin fluctuation in your body.
  6. You must stay active and fit. This is the most important lifestyle choice for any diabetic patient. By exercising, you will maintain a good shape, your metabolism gets boosted and the insulin production increases as well.
  7. You should use a pedometer to calculate how much you are moving each day while exercising.
  8. Try to consume fruits and vegetables. By trying new vegetables and fruits, you will be able to keep your blood sugar under check and see how your body reacts.
  9. You must increase your amount of fibre intake. Fibre is important for diabetic patients, which keeps the digestive processes to run smoothly. Your cholesterol level decreases and blood sugar levels may reduce if you take enough fibre.
  10. You should chew gum as it keeps your mouth busy. It makes you crave for less food.
  11. You should eat on smaller plates. This is a psychological trick which makes you consume less amount of food and your sugar and calorie levels are maintained.
  12. Before taking any food item or eating out, gather information about them. Learn about diabetes friendly food options at restaurants and check which products you should avoid buying from the market.
  13. You should get your blood sugar levels checked regularly. You should check it several times a day to learn how your body responds to food.
  14. Circulation problems may cause issues with your feet, which may lead to a lack of sensation, cuts and scrapes. Check your feet regularly to notice changes.
  15. Instead of having 2,3 large meals a day, you should take several small meals throughout the day. This will keep your body’s digestive processes active thereby increasing insulin sensitivity.

I am male 33years diabetic since 1 year sugar is under control weight 70kg. Can I eat 7/6 dates in morning.

I am male 33years diabetic since 1 year sugar is under control weight 70kg. Can I eat 7/6 dates in morning.
Mr Mohsin, If your fasting sugar is closer to 100 mg and PP is around 150 to 160 mg / 100 ml, HbA1c<7%, then one can say diabetes is under control. But to keep it under control daily food intake has to be measured along with exercise, diet and drugs. Eating 1 date may be ok not more.

डायबिटीज को आधुनिक चिकित्‍सा विज्ञान में डायबिटीज मेलिटिस कहते है। ये दोनों शब्‍द की उत्‍पति लैटिन भाषा से हुई हैं। लैटिन में डायबिटीज का अर्थ है प्रवाहित होना और मेलिटिस का शुगर। शुगर प्रवाहित होना डायबिटीज कहलाता है। इसमें रोगी के ब्‍लड में जरूरत से ज्‍यादा शुगर बनने लगती है। किसी एक निश्चित मात्रा तक रक्‍त में शर्करा का होना, शारीरिक क्रिया-कलापों के लिए नितान्‍त आवश्‍यक माना जाता हे। लेकिन किसी भी पदार्थ का आवश्‍यकता से अधिक होना सदा हानिकारक माना गया है। लेकिन कुछ घरेलू उपायों द्वारा ब्‍लड में आवश्‍यकता से अधिक बनने वाले शुगर को नियंत्रित किया जा सकता है।

To break that fatigue it is advisable to drink or eat protein and mineral food which would be a reservoir for you to store the energy. Anaemia always leads to the symptoms of being tired and also having body pain and laxity through out.

Is permanent treatment possible in homeopathy for hypothyroidism that no need to take lifetime medicine?

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Is permanent treatment possible in homeopathy for hypothyroidism that no need to take lifetime medicine?
Mr. Lybrate-user, hypothyroidism is a condition arising due to deficiency of the hormone thyroxine produced by thyroid gland. This hormone is constantly required for development and day to day functioning of brain, plus it is essential for vital metabolic activities in the body. So there a constant need for it. Hence, it has to be supplied from outside and that too for life time. There is no other drug that can replace it. Taking thyroxine hormone is the only treatment. Thanks.

lybrate-user, TSH 1.43 mU/L, is a good level. It means hypothyroidism is well controlled. You please continue the same dose. Check TSH level once in 8 weeks, if level goes further down, then may cut the dose by about 12.5 mcg. Thanks.
