It is good that you are working and doing exercise at your age. Congratulations - snoring is common after 50 years. Associated cold increases it. You can use nasal spray or slightly warm castor oil in both nostrils at bedtime.

A person with diabetes has to take a balanced diet like all others. However, he should avoid direct sugar, honey, sweets and deep fried foods, fruits like mango, grapes, bananas, chikkoos. Take a good amount of green salads and green vegetables. In addition he should exercise regularly for more thane 1 h a day.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Diabetes Management in Ramadan

During Ramadan, diabetics who chose to fast should be educated about how to adjust their medications and be prepared to break the fast if necessary.
During the lunar-based month of Ramadan, Muslims abstain from eating, drinking, smoking, or using oral medications from predawn to sunset.
Followers will typically eat just after sunset and again before dawn.
In general, fasting is not recommended for people with diabetes. The practice increases the risk for both hypoglycemia from lack of food and hyperglycemia resulting from cutting back too far on medication in attempts to avoid hypoglycemia. Hyperglycemia can also occur if patients overeat after sundown.
If the period of fasting is longer and the two meals are eaten close together, this can be tricky.
Islamic law does not require fasting when it would create a physical danger.
Fasting is especially risky for those with type 1 diabetes, for pregnant women, and for children. However, patients with well-controlled type 1 diabetes who use insulin pumps can often accomplish fasting by adjusting their basal infusion rates and monitoring their blood glucose levels frequently.
For patients with type 2 diabetes taking medications other than insulin or sulfonylureas, the risk for hypoglycemia is low. However, because of the prohibition against taking oral medication during daylight hours, patients who usually take metformin 3 times daily should take two-thirds of the dose at the sunset meal and one-third at the predawn meal.
Long-acting sulfonylureas should be avoided.
Once-daily sulfonylureas should be taken at the sunset meal.
For patients taking twice-daily sulfonylureas, the usual dose should be taken at the evening meal and half the usual dose before the predawn meal. One can also skip the predawn dose altogether.
The very short-acting insulin secretagogues repaglinide or nateglinide can be taken before each of the meals.
No adjustments are needed for thiazolidinediones, alpha-glucosidase inhibitors, incretin-based therapies, or bromocriptine.
Basal insulin doses should be reduced by about 30% to 40%. Patients who are on either mixed or intermediate-acting insulins should switch to basal insulin.
The usual dose of rapid-acting insulin should be taken before the sunset meal. The predawn dose of rapid-acting insulin can be cut to half or omitted.
Frequent monitoring is the key. Patients should be advised to break their fast if the blood sugar drops below 70 mg/dL. If it rises above 250 mg/dL ? particularly for patients with type 1 diabetes ? they should also break their fast and take insulin.
Patients should be cautioned against overeating after breaking the fast.
Moderation is the trick. Don't overfill an empty stomach.
Patients should be counseled about avoiding dehydration as much as possible.
Also adjust BP medicines during Ramadan

Lybrate-user, you need to be cautious with your food habits and physical exertion. Playing football might have resulted in some kind of sprain. I would recommend you to consult a doctor for examination of veins and urinary system. It might be a probablity that dosage of your medicine have to revised or some another medicine needs to be added. Hope you a speedy recovery.

Mr. Lybrate-user, diabetes mellitus is a disease occurring due to either deficiency of insulin or resistance to its action (mostly due to excess fat), so the treatment is directed towards increasing the availability of insulin in the body. There are some drugs which increase insulin secretion (oral), but in some patients those do not work. Then insulin is the only option. So it is possible that in your case insulin must be needed that is the reason doctor has prescribed. There is no other option to control diabetes, but along with drugs (insulin) diet control and exercise are a must for proper sugar control.

Mr. Lybrate-user, if a person has diabetes then following things have to be done: 1) take appropriate drugs based on severity of blood glucose level, either oral drugs or insulin injections or both in some cases. 2) follow a strict diet that provide exact calories based the patients need. 3) exercise regularly for at least 1 hour a day so that insulin action is improved, weight is maintained. 4) consume good deal of green leafy vegetables, salads and permitted fruits (about 100 g a day). Drug treatment is only a part of the therapy, patient has to make a strong effort to change his/her lifestyle then only diabetes can be well controlled. Good control is considered when fasting blood glucose is closer to 100 mg, pp between 150 to 160 mg and hba1c%<7. Thanks.

It keeps on changing. Why.
Mr. Lybrate-user, fasting or pp blood glucose levels depend on the intake of food and ability of insulin to help glucose utilisation by cells. So levels will vary depending on our daily food intake. If one eats more, level will go up. 140 mg is high, ideally it should be around 100 mg. Levels may also change if treatment is not adequate. Thanks.

Increased frequency of urination, excessive thirst, increased appetite, decrease in weight, weakness delayed healing of wounds are some of the symptoms of diabetes. Half the cases there are no symptoms at all and diabetes is detected accidentally. Getting fasting and 1 1/2 hours after food sugar reports periodically is the simplest method.
