What are the effects of taking synthetic thyroxine? If it remains within the zone ,does it have bad effects?
Synthetic thyroxine is given to supplement the endogenous thyroxine and does not have any side effects. Side effects from the other components in the medicine have been reported but are practically inconsequential in clinical practice.

Mr. Lybrate-user, since you have hypertension and diabetes, it is essential that both these conditions are well in control. Plus you should do regular exercise so as to keep both upper and lower back muscles well toned and relaxed. There are specific exercises for upper and lower back muscles, which should help in overcoming the stiffness in these muscles. Your weight is shown as 91 kgs, but height is not mentioned. It appears you are having excess weight, which can be a mean reason for stiffness in the back.

My father has detected high sugar level. What diet should he take at initial stage?
Once diabetes is detected apart from taking proper it is essential to take suitable diet which will depend on weight, level of physical activity and sugar levels. So it is usually a patient specific diet. General things to be kept in mind are use whole grain flour (n0 maida), very little oil, more green salads, less of potatoes, use multiple grains etc.

I am very very big lover of sweets but the main problem which come between us is diabetes. How can I Control it.
Sweets are unhealthy even for a non-diabetic person as sugar gives empty calories, increases weight & makes you addictive. You need to control your temptation to have sweets by- 1. Having enough protein & fibre in your meals 2. Having small frequent meals at regular intervals 3. Taking a piece of sweet fruit when craving for sweet occurs- ex: mango/ dates/ jackfruit/ watermelon/ banana. 4. Weighing the disadvantages & advantages of having sweets & explaining yourself.

Mr. lybrate-user, The drug mentioned can be given to her, as an additional compound and to help improve blood glucose control. If it helps it good enough. But do not stop the current treatment. Because for controlling diabetes modern medicines are the only option. If it is plain Glycomet, then it helps in reducing Insulin resistance and delays carbohydrate absorption and helps reduce blood glucose level and improves insulin action. Thanks.

For diabetes follow a diet low in carbohydrate, low in fat and high in fibre. Avoid bakery products. Avoid too much rice and potato. Avoid fried stuff. Avoid chocolate, cakes, ice cream, soft drinks and fruit juices. Eat lots of vegetables. Walk for at least 30 minutes a day for 5 days in a week. Keep your diabetes under control to improve your sexual problem. Consult your doctor if problem still persists.

I am an old man of 69 years. I have high B.P for 20 years but am keeping it under control, using right medicines as advised by the doctor. I also have been diabetic for 6 years and keeping it well with in limits. I have a great urge for sex right from my adolescence and I used to have excellent sexual potency that very few can have. But, unfortunately due to having been divorced, I haven't had sex with any woman for nearly 11 years. Though I burn with a great desire to have sex, I am afraid, I may not be so active as I was earlier due to my fear that my penis is flaccid and that there is no proper erection, when the desire for sex rises in me (I get tempted, even looking at any young and sexy woman, at this age too). I would like to know if there are any medicines or surgeries that can make my penis strong and stiff when aroused and whether I can get back my original potency at this age. Can I also have the sustaining power of retaining the erection for long ,as I used to have earlier? The bottom line is that I am going to marry an orphan, younger to me by 35 years. I don't want to be a failure and have my new wife find ways to betray me due to lack of sexual satisfaction from me. Please advise me.

General Physician,
My diabetes pps comes to 184 is this high? Pl guide what to do. I am taking gemer-2 (two times)
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.

Hello Sir, Your blood glucose levels are borderline high. With appropriate medication and proper diet and exercise I am fairly certain that the glucose would come down to normal range. Reducing your weight will help you a lot too to reduce your blood glucose levels. The diet that will help you both with weight loss and blood glucose control is as follows: - eat plenty of vegetables either as salads or in curry form (made with less oil or fat). Avoid potatoes, colocasia, yam etc. Limit your carbohydrates intake- like rice, roti, chapati etc. Use whole grains wherever possible like bajra, Raghu, different types of mullets, whole wheat Upma etc. Take a small bowl of dal everyday. You can eat 2 fruits (avoid mango, jack fruit, sapota etc). Can drink glass of milk, take curds/buttermilk. Avoid sweets, cakes, biscuits, junk food etc. Exercise at least 45 min/day, includes brisk walking, cycling, jogging, swimming etc. I cannot advise you which medication to take in open forum due to Lybrate rules. You can consult me privately for that as private consultation. Or you could see a good diabetologist where you live. I hope this has helped you Thank you.

Dear lybrate user the main symptoms of diabetes is large quantity of urine and frequent urine. There will be a feel of sweet coating over tongue. The life span of diabetic patient depends upon the maintainance of his diet and life style and the severity of the disease.
