Hi, Both my parents have diabetes. Mom takes Gluconorm G2 (Metformin+ Glimepiride) Dad takes Volibo M0. 2 (Metformin+ Voglibose) Both have a 500 mg+0.2 mg combination. What's the difference between them? Are they interchangeable?

Hi,

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for your query. The drugs mentioned Glimepiride and Voglibose are different in their action. Metformin is supposed to reduce or delay glucose absorption and hence slows down blood glucose rise after taking food. Plus it also reduces insulin resistance hence helps blood glucose control. There are other beneficial effects like helps slight weight reduction. Glimepiride is a sulphonylurea compound, it stimulates insulin secretion by the beta cells of pancreas, thus increases insulin availability and controls blood glucose level. Its action is very powerful. At times it can cause low blood glucose level also. Voglibose is called a alpha glucosidase inhibitor, reducing conversion of disaccharrides (sucrose) to glucose. It is a milder drug. Therefore, these are interchangeable drugs. However, what is most important is that blood glucose should be well controlled with fasting glucose closer to 100 mg, PP 160 to 170 mg & HbA1c%<7. Then only all the long term complications of diabetes can be either delayed or prevented. Thanks,

I am 21 year old I m having diabetes since 3 years I intake a insuline 3 tym in a day my question is if I have eaten a more sweet after taking insulin at noon and then my sugar goes at 300 or more. So can I intake again a insuline 4th tym. To control diabetes or take insuline direct a night?

Dear . let me clarify you that diabetes is a silent killer if not taken precautions. Why the hell are you taking sweets. You are just 21 and you have a life ahead. 3 times insulin itself is 2 much. Haven't you tried medicine. Brother life is precious. Don't play with yourself.

Combat Diabetes with These Ayurvedic Remedies

Diabetes is a condition wherein the sugar levels in your blood increases significantly. This happens when the sugar you consume from food is not efficiently processed by the body thus, raising your blood sugar levels. An excess concentration of sugar in the blood can make you prone to various health complications.

Symptoms
The symptoms of diabetes include frequent urge to urinate, increased thirst, increased hunger and rapid weight loss, combined with fatigue and irritability. Diabetes can also cause problems in the eyes, such as blurred vision as well as make you prone to cataracts and even glaucoma (in very rare cases). With diabetes, any injury or body sore tends to take a lot of time to heal.

Causes
Diabetes is a disorder that occurs due to impaired insulin functioning. Insulin is a hormone that is produced by pancreas, which is located right below the stomach. Diabetes, when occurs as a result of insufficient production of insulin by the pancreas, is known as Type 1 Diabetes. In this type, the immune cells in the body attack the cells in the pancreas, which produce insulin, thus discouraging insulin secretion.
Another kind is the Type 2 diabetes, which occurs when the cells in the body become insulin resistant. Most cases of diabetes are of this particular type, as one of the major reasons behind this is following an erratic lifestyle devoid of healthy habits.

Gestational diabetes is the third type, although it isn’t very common. During pregnancy, the various hormones that are secreted in the body can play spoilsport with the functioning of the pancreas, thus the production of insulin. This leads to a drastic rise in blood sugar levels.

Ayurvedic treatment

  1. Eat healthy: Eating healthy assumes the maximum importance; you need to eat healthy in order to control diabetes effectively. Include plenty of fruits and vegetables in the diet, but make sure to pick foods that contain little sugar. Fruits such as bananas and grapes are not the best options for a diabetic. Rather, one should consider cucumber and bitter gourd in such circumstances.
  2. Exercise regularly: Regular exercise can keep your body weight at optimal levels which goes a long way in preventing and controlling symptoms of diabetes. Besides being good for your heart, cardiovascular exercises such as running bring down the excess glucose levels in the blood.
  3. Limit stress: Stress is very harmful for the body as it reduces your immunity against diseases and infections. Leading a stressful life can make you prone to a variety of disorders, diabetes being one of them. Relaxation techniques such as meditation and yoga can help one deal with stress effectively. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an ayurveda.

If external application of ointment gives you relief then it may be a case of chest muscle strain. So there is no health risk. But you should be working towards reducing your cholesterol. At this age, high cholesterol can be harmful to the heart. Go for a ecg and a echo. Consult a physician to rule out any cardiac ailments.

lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. I think I have answered another of your queries recently. If the so called lump is present show it to an endocrinologist to check if it is related to thyroid gland and if he suggests any investigations like ultra sono graphy of the region and thyroid test get those done. Let the whole thing be clarified. Stop worrying unnecessarily. Thanks.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Your information is very general, so difficult to comment. There is no mention whether she has hypo or hyperthyroidism. It is better if full details are mentioned. Please understand whichever thyroid condition it may be, treatment has to be continued for lifetime. Particularly in hypothyroidism she has to take prescribed amount of levothyroxine tablets daily without fail for her lifetime. If dosage is frequently altered or drug is stopped in between, then TSH levels will go up. All the symptoms reappear. Plus all the instructions regarding taking of the tablet that is - early morning on empty stomach, nothing there after for 1 to 1 and half hour, should be followed. She has to restrict her diet. Avoid soy beans, soy containing products and use whole grain flour for roti and chapati. Stop taking foods made from maida. If you have any doubts please come back. It is better if you come in a private conversation with all details like TSH, T4 & T3 levels and current dosage, her weight and height and symptoms if any, then I will be able to guide specifically and help in controlling the condition. Thanks.

In hypothyroidism:-- where there is deficiency of thyroxine hormone leading to sluggishness, tired feeling, weight increase, slow heart beats, intolerance to cold, swelling of legs, feet and face, difficulty in concentrating and at times in speech.

Eating foods high in B vitamins, like whole grains, may also help. flax oil, Selenium: Tiny amounts of selenium are needed for enzymes that make thyroid hormones to work properly. Eating selenium-rich foods, such as sunflower seeds or Brazil nuts, can be beneficial. Tyrosine: This amino acid is used by the thyroid gland to produce T3 and T4. Taking a supplement may help, avoid oily foods,junk foods, go for walk. Do Tests every 3 to 6 months. And consut doctor on time.

Hello, Thanks for the query. Dosage of thyroxine is calculated on the basis of patients height, weight, T4 & TSH levels, plus age. With adequate dodge, TSH is usually maintained between 3 to 4 mU/L to be free from all the symptoms of hypothyroidism. So there is a need for increasing the dosage. But to say what should be the dose, other details are required. Thanks.

You have very good sugar control as suggested by values provided by you. Please check hba1c level also. Looking at your profile, you seems to be overweight. So before lowering the dosage, you should first try to lose your weight, which may be helpful in long term to reduce your medications.
