Hi, I am 40 years old. My height is 165 cm weight 66 Kg. I am diabetic from last 2 years. My sugar level is 140 fasting. Still I am not taking allopathic medicine only home remedies. When I press my thumb I am feeling little pain in my thumb. When I try to pick something like glass of water, or heavy thing, many times I realize that I am unable to pick weight.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Fasting glucose 140 mg is high, suggesting uncontrolled diabetes. Please inform what is the PP glucose and HbA1c%? That will give a clear idea about how the situation is. Not taking any medicine is inviting problem. Because uncontrolled high blood glucose leads to a multiple long term complications associated with eye (retina), kidneys, peripheral nerves, small and large blood vessels, lower limbs and heart. Hence it absolutely necessary to achieve a strict blood glucose control with fasting < 100 mg, PP 150 to 160 mg & HbA1c% <6.8. It is difficult to say what may be the problem with the thumb. But controlling blood glucose is absolutely essential. Thanks.

Hi Karela juice is a diabetic friendly juice. It has glucose lowering effect and drinking it in excess can cause repeated low blood sugars when taken with diabetic medicines. It mostly causes abdominal pain and diarrhea in some but is not known to cause any kidney damage. In fact it prevents kidney stones and controls blood pressure.

People with diabetes should be particularly cautious when it comes to drinking alcohol because alcohol can make some of the complications of diabetes worse. For starters, alcohol impacts the liver in doing its job of regulating blood sugar. Alcohol can also interact with some medications that are prescribed to people with diabetes. Even if you only rarely drink alcohol, talk with your healthcare provider about it so that he or she knows which medications are best for you.

Here’s what you need to know:

1. Alcohol interacts with diabetes medications.

Alcohol can cause blood glucose levels to rise or fall, depending on how much you drink. Some diabetes pills (including sulfonylureas and meglitinides) also lower blood glucose levels by stimulating the pancreas to make more insulin. Combining the blood-sugar-lowering effects of the medication with alcohol can lead to hypoglycemia or “insulin shock,” which is a medical emergency. 

2. Alcohol prevents your liver from doing its job.

When you drink alcohol, your liver has to work to remove it from your blood instead of working to regulate blood sugar. For this reason, you should never drink alcohol when your blood glucose is already low.

3. Never drink alcohol on an empty stomach.

Food slows down the rate at which alcohol is absorbed into the bloodstream. The Diabetes Teaching Center at the University of California in San Francisco recommends eating a meal or snack containing carbohydrates when you drink alcohol. 

4. Always test blood sugar before having an alcoholic beverage.

Alcohol impairs your liver’s ability to produce glucose, so be sure to know your blood glucose number before you drink an alcoholic beverage.

5. Alcohol can cause hypoglycemia.

Within a few minutes of drinking alcohol, and for up to 12 hours afterward, alcohol can cause your blood glucose level to drop. After consuming alcohol, always check your blood glucose level to make sure it is in the safe zone. If your blood glucose is below 100 mg/dL, eat a snack to bring it up.

6. You can save your life by drinking slowly.

If you weigh 150 pounds, it takes about two hours for your liver to break down one alcoholic beverage.

Drinking too much alcohol can make you feel dizzy, sleepy, and disoriented—the same symptoms as hypoglycemia. Be sure to wear a bracelet that alerts people around you to the fact that you have diabetes, so that if you start to behave like you are intoxicated they know that your symptoms could be caused by hypoglycemia. If you are hypoglycemic, you need food and/or glucose tablets to raise your blood glucose level.

7. You can save your life by knowing your limit.

Your healthcare provider will tell you how much alcohol is safe for you to drink. Depending on your health condition, that may mean no alcohol at all. In some cases women with diabetes may have no more than one alcoholic beverage a day. Men should have no more than two.

1. Maintain your body weight. 2. Do not fast/ don't have a long break in meals. Instead of having three big meals, start 5-6 frequent but small meals. 3. Do regular light exercise along with meditation. 4. Take more sprouts. 5. Instead of pure curd, take diluted curd mixed with cucumber, onion (raayta). 6. Use cow milk and its products. 7. In fruits, you may take papaya, apple, orange, pear, jamun, guava in average quantiy. 8. Soyabean chunks, dal, and atta is good. 9. Sabudana khichri is good in breakfast. 10. Curd made by methi seeds is good (boil the milk with methi seeds and make curd of this).

Mr your sugar levels are not high enough to label you as having diabetes. So medication is not required. You fasting glucose intolerance (fgt). Pp level is with in 140 mg hence normal. What this means is you in a pre diabetic state. Do you have any family history of diabetes? if so then you to take extra care. Your bmi (body mass index) is 25.71 kg/m2 which is signifying over weight. To avoid possibility of developing t2dm exercise daily for more than 1 h every day, avoid direct sweets and sugar, deep fried foods, excess eating. Try and loose at least 6 - 7 kgs weight over next 3 - 4 months. Avoid smoking and alcohol. If you take these precautions you will probably remain free from diabetes.

Mr. lybrate-user, Usually at around your age pimples tend to come more often, due to hormonal changes related to the age. Tht has nothing to do with thyroid function. Hypothyroidism can be prevented if it is due to iodine deficiency, by taking iodine supplemented salt. Pimples tend to subside as one gets a bit older. Thanks.

Mr. lybrate-user, A person with diabetes has to take a balanced diet, which includes carbohydrates, fats and proteins. Rice is one of the carbs, it can be taken by a diabetic person. In south India, where rice is the staple diet (Kerala, TN, & AP, South Karnataka), it is consumed by every one. Foods to be avoided are sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries, bakery items, other maida items, sweetened aerated drinks, sweet corn containing products, highly processed food products and high fat milk products. Total caloric intake has to be based on ideal body weight, extent of daily physical activity and blood glucose levels. Fruits like papaya, water melon, pomegranate, orange, sweet lime, apple, pear and guava can be eaten. Thanks.

lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. If hypothyroidism is treated with correct dose of levothyroxine, then TSh should be around 3 to 4 mU/L, then all the symptoms are in complete control. So please tell me what is the current TSH level. If that is high, then all the symptoms mentioned can be present. So please give that value, then I will be able to guide. Also better to test your Hb %, because if that is low, then also there can be tiredness. Thanks.

Low testosterone levels usually mean low sexual desire. Levels dip as men age; other causes include chronic disease, medications, and other drug use. Other hormones can play a role, too, such aslow levels of thyroid hormone or, rarely, high levels of prolactin, a hormone produced in a gland at the base of the brain. Homoepathic treatment increase sexual desire and cures erectile dysfunction without any side effects.
