Yes overweight or obese people have a higher risk of developing diabetes. Most patients do not have any symptoms. However, there may be excessive thirst or urination or recurrent infections. Only way to confirm is checking sugars at least once a year.

Accucheck or any other glucometer has approx 10-15% variation. Also for accucheck glucometer we use capillary blood (arterial blood which has more glucose) and for laboratory blood test we use venous blood (glucose utilized by muscles). So normally glucometer gives approx 15% more value than lab blood test. Frequency of checking blood sugar will depend upon control of diabetes. More uncontrolled diabetes = needs more frequent blood sugar monitoring.

Insulin is only available treatment for type 1 diabetes. Please don't discontinue insulin as that can be life threatening. With proper treatment he can live long healthy life like anyone else. But poor compliance with treatment puts him at risk of serious complications in future. Take care.

If only metformin is taken it should be after food. If sustained release tablet is there then od may ok. If not twice a day is better. Side effects are less if taken after food.

Mr. lybrate-user, To recommend diet to a diabetic person following details are needed: FBS, PP levels, HbA1c%, current treatment, level of daily exercise & present dietary pattern. Without these details it is not possible to suggest a dietary plan. Only certain general recommendations should be kept in mind are: avoid sweets completely, avoid deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries, other bakery items, sweetened aerated drinks (colas), red meat, fructose syrup containing products and highly processed food products. She should consume more of green leafy vegetables, salads and permitted fruits (100 g a day). Always use whole grain flour for roti and chapati. Avoid all items made of maida. Thanks.

Can you please tell me what ketosis diet is. Who it is meant for. How it works. please suggest?

Can you please tell me what ketosis diet is. Who it is meant for. How it works. please suggest?
The ketogenic diet is a high-fat, adequate-protein, low-carbohydrate diet that in medicine is used primarily to treat difficult-to-control (refractory) epilepsy in children. The diet forces the body to burn fats rather than carbohydrates. Normally, the carbohydrates contained in food are converted into glucose, which is then transported around the body and is particularly important in fuelling brain-function. However, if there is very little carbohydrate in the diet, the liver converts fat into fatty acids and ketone bodies. The ketone bodies pass into the brain and replace glucose as an energy source. An elevated level of ketone bodies in the blood, a state known as ketosis, leads to a reduction in the frequency of epileptic seizures. The original therapeutic diet for pediatric epilepsy provides just enough protein for body growth and repair, and sufficient calories to maintain the correct weight for age and height. This classic ketogenic diet contains a 4:1 ratio by weight of fat to combined protein and carbohydrate. This is achieved by excluding high-carbohydrate foods such as starchy fruits and vegetables, bread, pasta, grains and sugar, while increasing the consumption of foods high in fat such as nuts, cream and butter.

Though your sugar can be controlled with additionof more oral drugs but best option is to start insulin injections for short period of 8-12weeks to control symptoms and sugar and later try to revert to oral drugs.

This means that the blood sugar levels continue to be high, threatening the normal functioning of the body.

Naturally sugar is present in many of foods which we have daily not only rice, potato or sweets. Don't require to eliminate any particular food from your diet. Just avoid simple carbs, sweet products, fruits which are high in sugar content. You need a well balanced diet to manage blood sugar level. You may contact me for detailed diet plan.

What are the symptoms of diabetes. And what kind of solution for that we should take.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
What are the symptoms of diabetes. And what kind of solution for that we should take.
Diabetes affects all organs in the body – Eyes, kidneys, nerves, reproductive system all are affected, In fact, from toe to hair. For diabetic control, patient and doctor should be in constant touch for regular follow up and advice. The common symptoms are :-Both types of diabetes have some of the same tell-tale warning signs. Hunger and fatigue. Your body converts the food you eat into glucose that your cells use for energy. But your cells need insulin to bring the glucose in. If your body doesn't make enough or any insulin, or if your cells resist the insulin your body makes, the glucose can't get into them and you have no energy. This can make you more hungry and tired than usual. Urinating more often and being thirstier. The average person usually has to pee between four and seven times in 24 hours, but people with diabetes may go a lot more. Dry mouth and itchy skin. Because your body is using fluids to make pee, there's less moisture for other things. You could get dehydrated, and your mouth may feel dry. Dry skin can make you itchy. Blurred vision. Changing fluid levels in your body could make the lenses in your eyes swell up. They change shape and lose their ability to focus. Diabetes, often referred to by doctors as diabetes mellitus, describes a group of metabolic diseases in which the person has high blood glucose (blood sugar), either because insulin production is inadequate, or because the body's cells do not respond properly to insulin, or both. It is a difficult 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), & HbA1C (inform me) 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. There are different diet plans of varying calories for each person depending on his activity & life style. For diabetes, hypertension (high BP) and many long-term illness 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 with all details like your daily eating pattern and medicines you take. I assure you a proper guidance... if you keep in touch personally.

What you have stated is suggestive of gastro oesophagial regurgitation disorder, or in simple word the secretions from your stomach ascend back in the food pipe called oesophagus in the chest. This secretion is acidic and when it reaches throat, it produces sour taste in mouth and burning sensation. You should eat small meals some 2 hours before going to bed. Raise the head end of your bed by about 4 to 6 inches. You may need some prokinetic and proton pump inhibitor drugs if there is no relief. You may consult privately.

lybrate-user, If hypothyroidism is present then weight increase is bound to occur unless TSH level is brought down around 3 to 4 mU/L. So first thing is to see that TSH is at desired level. Then efforts to reduce weight are likely to be fruitful. Most important is to have a restricted diet and exercise daily for at least 1 hour. Thanks.
