My mother is diabetic for last 6 years but this week her sugar level was 485 & she is suffering from cold & cough for last 20 days. Drs have prescribed antibiotics & antidiabetic (glimepiride 4 mg + metformin 1000 mg BD) but still sugar level is 351 and no symptomatic relief in cold & cough, also she is having fever sometimes. She doesn't like food now. Nausea is also happening.

Thank you for the query. As per the details provided, your mother is 51 years of age and a diabetic for 6 years. A sugar level of 485 mg% is definitely undesirable, and in your mother's case it has shot up probably due to her infection (cough +cold). Please get her sugar profile done (fasting and 2 hrs post prandial blood sugar and hba1c). Since she has an infection, it will be difficult to control her sugar without treating the infection. It will be preferable to maintain her sugar between 140-180 mg% at this phase. Since she is having nausea diabetic ketoacidosis (a condition arising due to high sugar levels) must be kept in mind. Glimeperide and metformin are good medications, but since they are long acting drugs, in the background of an infection they may cause hypoglycemia. Sometimes to manage high blood sugar levels, temporarily, short acting insulin may be used. Once the sugar levels are controlled, the oral drugs may be restarted. It is advisable to monitor her sugar levels at home, if possible. In the long term, a 1400 kcal/day, refined carbohydrate and saturated fat restricted diet is preferred. Regards

Both the disorders may not cause such a complaint normally. There can be any number of different possibilities like soft tissue pain or related to rib cage. See a general physician for direct clinical examination, investigations if at all diagnosis and advice.

I am 41 years old I have heavy diabetic for the past 5 years. And I have taking insulin for past 4 years. But I cant reduce the insulin level. What should I do for the same ?

PGDD, RD, Bachelor of Home Science
Dietitian/Nutritionist, Mumbai
For a diabetic it is best advised to have a diet planned as per the sugar levels, lifestyle and history. Though you can follow some guidelines - have small frequent meals. Do not fast for more than 2-3 hours. Avoid a very heavy meal at one time. Avoid fruit juices, aerated drinks or sugarcane juice, honey, jaggery or sugar. Fruits should be had as a mid meal. Avoid junk foods. Exercise and stay active. Do not attempt to try out too many remedies as you could go into hypoglycaemia. Sleep well. It's all a matter of discipline.

Can't say for sure but could be due to neuropathy due to diabetes or any other cause. Kindly elaborate on your symptoms. Include vit b12 rich food in your diet. (like meat fish) or take over the counter available suppliments. Include exercise in your routine. Focusing on your back also. But never involving too much bending and lifting weights together. These are few things coming to my mind with your limited history. You can get back to me if you want more information on d same.

Mr Manjunath, Along with taking appropriate medicines are exercising regularly for more than 1 hour a day? That is vey important as it increases Insulin action and helps reduce resistance to its action. Plus taking a balanced and restricted diet providing exact calories based on Ideal Body Weight, blood sugar levels and extent of daily exercise. These measure are also equally essential. Plus there may be a need to have a re look at present treatment and additional therapy may be needed.

It can be fungal infection Tinea Versicolor or Tinea cruris . If diabetes is not in control there are chances of related to diabetes.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 should be under proper guidance for regular follow up and advice. 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), & 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 & lifestyle.
