1. My Wife aged 59 years having weight of 62 kgs and O blood group, is suffering from left knee pain for the last more than two months. Sever pain for the last one month. She is diabetes with 7.9 average sugar for three months and under medication regularly for the last ten years. She is also taking small doze of Insulin. 2. Local doctors have advised us for TKR. Pending which, an injection called SYNVISC-One could be given for pain relieving to gain time. I wish to know that 1. Whether the above injection will give relief from pain for some time and how long period and side effects for diabetes persons. Whether it is steroid and its cost. Or any other kind of injection/medicines which help us in pain. Please help us.

Synvisc is not a steroid. It's natural sugar for lubrication. Also sometimes other steroidal injections are given. Best is knee replacement. But the hba1c is on the higher side, please keep her sugar in control. Also send me other reports in private chat and I will send a prescription of excellent medicines that will help her immediately. Steroids can't be given in your wife's case because they will increase the sugar levels. So medicine has to be given very carefully. Please consult me for further treatment.

Of course it is a psychological problem. There is a technique called' nuali' in yoga which can strengthen your abdominal muscles thereby strengthen your bladder control. Learn and practice from a qualified yoga teacher, with confidence. You will get positive results.

I am having lots of weight I want to loose my weight and become slimmer and I also want to do thyroid test means t3t4 and tsh if thyroid is there what will be my diet please tell me.

If the weight gain has increased drastically without making any evident change in food and other physical activities. I recommended you to get your thyroid levels checked. Still for basic weight loss to be achieved maintains a balanced diet of not more than 1500 calories per day. 1. Refined sugars in coffee and tea should be completely stopped, shift to multigrain chapatti instead of only wheat based and have more complex crabs in your snacks time like roasted grain and salads. 2.2serving of fruits should be included but keep the serving size maximum to 1 at one time. 3. Include 1-2 portions of proteins in form of tofu, paneer, sprouts and oat meals daily in the evening time to manage the intake of carbohydrates after 7: 30 pm. 4. Maintain a good balanced of carbohydrates, fats and protein to the ratio and include a cardio session of 45 mins daily for at least 5 days a week to maintain a good health overall.

Your sugar levels are marginally raised than target levels (f<140, pp<180) you need to do regular exercise and dietery modification and if it still persists in this range, then addition of another drug required.

I am 57 years old and have been suffering from diabetes for the last decade or so. Despite my adherence to strict diet and exercise regime my HAB1C reading has gone from 7.5 to 8.5 this time around. My tryglyercides have also shot from 153 to 189. Is there any thing which I require to do to bring my blood sugar level and triglycerides to a manageable limit. My BP & cholesterol is normal.

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 long hours. Avoid a very heavy meal at one time. Avoid fruit juices, aerated drinks or sugarcane juice, honey, jaggery or sugar. Avoid junk foods. Sometimes it is possible you are not eating the right foods at the right time. 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.

You take 3 big meals n 2 small meals between 3 big meals. In morning take 1 glass of lukeworm water with 1/2 spoon methidana powder its helps to control blood sugar level. Then walk for 45 min. Tea without sugar with biscuits (digestive marrie / marrie gold) after 1 hr you take breakfast like daliya, oats, upma, sprouts. In midmorning take any fruit except banana, cheeku, grapes. In lunch take 1- 1/2 chapati, dal, salad, vegetables and curd. Then snacks then dinner n don't take rice.

I am 46 years of age. I was suffering with epilepsy and was medicated for that. I am also on respidon 4 mg and flunil 20 mg which is prescribed by the psychiatrist for more than ten years from delhi. As I keep travelling so I don't get time to go to for follow ups sometimes for almost a year or so. Now almost everything is okay except for sleep problem. I am working still I sometimes feel over anxious and restless so I get sometimes sleep problem. I am very sensitive and an introvert I get disturbed easily. I was very slim before the start of medication bit now I am 58 kgs and 5 feet tall. I am very worried about my weight and I walk and do yoga regularly but still I don't seem to lose any weight as I am also suffering from hypothyroid problem almost from last six years now. I want to leave medication for mental illness but I am not confident and I fear that I will not be able to sleep or work if I am without medication. Could you please advice me if it is possible to drop medication and yet live a normal life. I am not married and I do not want to get married either because of my mental illness.

You can live a normal life. If you want to leave your medication you have to talk to your psychiatrist and after his advise you can leave them as he suggested. Don't feel stress. You can do relaxation exercise and meditation to give strength to your soul. If you want to take any further help you can contact us.

Hi doctor Can a diabetic drink ORS in case of excess toilet. Toilet just only water. If he/ she drinks ORS then the sugar level increases or not.

Hello, Yes ORS should be taken , as electrolyte loss prevention is a priority in diarrhoea . Also dehydration in itself can raise sugar levels.

Grr I am diabetic for the last six years. I do not take any medicine. I go to gym on alternative days. Is this sufficient to keep me healthy.

Dear lybrate-user, if your blood sugar level is under controlled with your current lifestyle, there is no need to take any medicines. Diabetes is a lifestyle disease. So the best treatment is to maintain good diet and lifestyle accordingly. Just keep one thing in mind that your should be regularly monitoring your blood sugar. The most reliable test for monitoring is hba1c (shows the average bs for last three months) and if constantly it is maintained at around/ below 6.5, no need to get worried. Also at least once a year get your diabetic profile done from any reliable path lab so that any complication could be checked before time. Along with exercise focus on diet too. Frequent meals (every two hours) in small quantities is basic rule for diabetics. Keep your mind relaxed and cool. Do meditation, pranayam. Hope this would help you out. Thanks.
