Mr. Lybrate-user, diabetes mellitus if not well controlled, affects small and large blood vessels, leading to problems with multiple organs like eyes (retina) kidney and microvasculature of penis. The last effect does lead to erection dysfunction affecting sexual life. So it is essential to achieve a strict blood glucose control all the while. Maintaining fasting level around 100 mg, pp between 150 to 160 mg and hba1c% <6.8 is necessary, to delay or prevent long term complications. To achieve a strict sugar control following things are needed: appropriate drug treatment, regular exercise for at least 1 hour a day, maintaining near normal weight and strict diet control. You already have a bmi of almost 27 kgs/m2, (normal <23 kgs/m2). Your ideal body weight should be 70 kgs. Being over weight affects blood sugar control as excess fat increases insulin resistance.

10 Symptoms That Signal Hypothyroidism. Do You Have Any Of These?

10 Symptoms That Signal Hypothyroidism. Do You Have Any Of These?
10 symptoms that signal hypothyroidism

When your thyroid malfunctions, you may face difficult health issues. Hypothyroidism leads to excessive weight gain and a lot of other medical ailments. It can be identified by a bunch of symptoms which if present, should not be taken lightly.

1) weight gain - if there is sudden and unexpected weight gain, this is the earliest and definite sign of an underactive thyroid gland. This means that there are strong chances of lowered levels of t3 and t4 hormones in the body, leading to slow metabolism in the body. People suffering from hypothyroidism face increased body weight which becomes difficult to lose despite maintaining healthy diet and exercising rigorously.

2) constant fatigue - if you have slept well the night before, yet you are tired and if this is a regular feature, then chances are that your thyroid gland is underactive. Being low in energy, it gets difficult to complete daily chores or exercise.

3) swelling in the neck - another telltale sign would be goiter - an abnormal swelling in the neck. The thyroid gland mainly concentrates iodine from the blood to create both the thyroid hormones. If there is iodine deficiency in the body, this process gets disrupted resulting in hypothyroidism.

4) hair loss - hypothyroidism causes hormonal imbalance which in turn causes hair loss. If there is sudden, unexplainable hair loss, chances of hypothyroidism are high.

5) imbalance in body temperature - if you are suddenly feeling too cold, it is advised to get your thyroid tests done.

6) brittle nails - if your nails have become brittle, get chipped very easily and look weak, this could be an indication of hypothyroidism.

7) mood changes - the weight gained and the excessive fatigue, both trigger massive mood swings which at times, the person has no control over.

8) constipation - the contractions of the digestive tract get weakened due to low levels of thyroid hormones resulting in constipation. Chronic constipation without any apparent reason could be an indicator of hypothyroidism.

9) irregular menses - if your periods are irregular, do not take it lightly. This could be most likely because of hormonal imbalances which are caused by hypothyroidism.

10) slower heart rate - if your heart beats at less than 60 times per minute, it could be because of the interference by thyroid hormones.

Definitely. You can wait to start th allopathic medicines. Just by th diet, exercise n nutrition you can get th desired diabetic control. Instead you can start some ayurvedic medicines containing th very effective herbs like vijaysar, gudmar, karela, neem, jamun, ashavgandha etc.

I am 58 years old and diabetic. Can I take lemon with warm water. I am already thin and dont want to reduce weight. Please suggest immediately.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
You can take lemon water without sugar. It is not as easy task to control blood sugar in the desired normal range. Whatever we eat is metabolised to sugar in the body to provide energy for our daily activities. For the absolute control, one has to monitor his / her blood sugar at regular intervals (self-monitoring of blood glucose? smbg). Though difficult, this can be done by a glucometer and keep a record. Get an idea of fasting sugar (fbs) and 2 hours after food (ppbs) and check before dinner and after every major food. The basic idea is to reduce the food intake to 1/3 of what you take now. The dictum of sugar control is diet, exercise, diet + medicine and at later stage medicine+ insulin will be needed. For sugar control there is the need for regular advice and follow up. Just one time consultation or advice is not enough to guide a diabetic in scientifically & medically correct manner. For giving you regular follow up you ask me privately with all details like your daily eating pattern and medicines you take. I assure you a proper guidance. If you keep in touch. Www. Lybrate.

I am hypothyroid and daily taking 100 mcg eltroxin since 10 years .Is there any side effects, please suggest.
lybrate-user, If you are tolerating the drug, then there is absolutely no problem. It is just like the natural hormone secreted by thyroid gland. In hypothyroidism there is almost nil production of this hormone, so it has to be supplemented daily for lifetime. When you are on treatment it is essential that TSH should be maintained between 3 to 4 mU/L, then only all the symptoms are well controlled. So please do check TSH level periodically. Thanks.

Increased frequency of urine, though a common problem in diabetes, is not specific of it. There are many other causes of increased urine frequency urinary tract infection, cystitis, or recent change in whether is also one cause!

The med will go on for ever and neuropathy, retinopathy may also develop. I would recommend not to stop your physician's med at once. However the supportive herbal remedy may be started parallel to presencent rx. Response will determine further action. It will definitely help, if not cure 100%

Diabetes cannot be cured. If managed well enough, it can be curtailed to avoid complications such as kidney failure, amputation, blindness and stroke. Preventing or managing diabetes requires clinical interventions as well as lifestyle changes. Medication is only one small part of managing diabetes. The major changes come from self-care activities. There are five essential self-care behaviours that have good outcomes. 1.Diet – Consume a low-fat, high-fibre diet helps. Eat lot of fruits, vegetables (at least 4-5 helping a day) along with whole meal, cereals and lentils 2.Exercise for at least 30 minutes a day, 5 days a week. 3.Medications – Be compliant with the dosages. 4.Testing - Monitoring blood sugar and screening for complications 5.Psychology – Acceptance, coping and problem solving skills.

Dear lybrate-user, It is always better to do Free T3 and Free T4 rather than Total. The decision to increase or decrease Thyroid dosage depends not just on the lab report but on the status of symptoms. Other factors relate to status of other metabolic imbalances and the presence or absence of comorbidities. Management of Hypothyroodism should be comprehensive through an elaborate protocol. Prima facie I would say, if your energy leves are good, weight under control and moods quite positive, there is no need to change your present dose of Thyroxine.

Hello , please follow the doctor prescribed medicine. Which controls the diabetics and will not allow you increase. But along with medication, you need to concentrate on food also. Make sure you food must have high protein, fiber and omega-3 nutrition. For a diabetics, its good to have more protein rather than carbohydrates, which converts into glucose and may have a chance to increase the diabetes. What we suggest is the nutrigemoic protein, who certified, with 9 essential amino acids. This will help you cure your diabetics. But you will definitely have a result, if you can use protein with vitamins and minerals, fiber and omega-3 supplements, we charge you 200/- per private consultation, lets discuss more about health and how to control with the diet. Have a nice day.

if your pp sugar level is 300 mg/100 ml, then diabetes is not in control. You need to add some more drugs with the advise from your doctor. What is the hba1c%, is it below 7%? also how active you are, because exercise ad weight reduction helps in better control of blood sugar.
