lybrate-user, Diabetes even if not in very good control is unlikely to cause an increase in menstrual cycle. It is better if you get a thyroid assay done and see if there is any problem with it. Plus it is good to consult a local gynecologist. Thanks.

How to balance weight in case of high diabetes. Please give me some tips to stabilise sugar in my body.
It's really important to track all your activities. It can be challenging, but you won't realize how effective it is unless you give it a try. The information about trends in your activities will help you get motivated and achieve your goals: 1. Organize you activity list. Write down (or type it if you use a software on PC or smartphone) all your daily routine. 2. Record events for each activity. For example you have an activity titled 'Chocolate bars'. Each time you eat a bar, you add an event. 3. Watch your progress and trends, draw conclusions, stay motivated There is a plenty of ways to keep track of stats. You can use sheets on your fridge, you can use notebooks, PC or Mac software or apps for smartphone, like iKeepStats for instance.

Obesity - Can It Lead to Diabetes?

MBBS, CCEBDM

Obesity - Can It Lead to Diabetes?

Diabetes is a complex group of diseases with a variety of causes. People with diabetes have high blood glucose, also called high blood sugar or hyperglycemia.

Diabetes is a disorder of metabolism, the way the body uses digested food for energy. The digestive tract breaks down carbohydrates, sugars and starches found in many foods, into glucose, a form of sugar that enters the bloodstream. Diabetes develops when the body doesn't make enough insulin or is not able to use insulin effectively, or both.

The two main types of diabetes are:

Type 1 Diabetes: Type 1 diabetes typically occurs in children and young adults, though it can appear at any age. In the past, type 1 diabetes was called juvenile diabetes or insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus.

Heredity plays an important part in determining who is likely to develop type 1 diabetes. Genes are passed down from biological parent to child.

Type 2 Diabetes: Type 2 diabetes develops most often in middle-aged and older people who are also overweight or obese. The disease, once rare in youth, is becoming more common in overweight and obese children and adolescents. Type 2 diabetes is caused by a combination of factors, including insulin resistance, a condition in which the body's muscle, fat, and liver cells do not use insulin effectively.

Physical Inactivity, Obesity, and Diabetes: Physical inactivity and obesity are strongly associated with the development of type 2 diabetes. People who are genetically susceptible to type 2 diabetes are more vulnerable when these risk factors are present. About 80 percent of people with type 2 diabetes are overweight or obese.

An imbalance between caloric intake and physical activity can lead to obesity, which causes insulin resistance and is common in people with type 2 diabetes. Central obesity, in which a person has excess abdominal fat, is a major risk factor not only for insulin resistance and type 2 diabetes but also for heart and blood vessel disease, also called cardiovascular diseases (CVD). This excess belly fat produces hormones and other substances that can cause harmful, chronic effects in the body such as damage to blood vessels.

So, measuring your waist is a quick way of assessing your diabetes risk. This is a measure of abdominal obesity, which is a particularly high-risk form of obesity. Women have a higher risk of developing type 2 diabetes if their waist measures 80cm (31.5 inches) or more. Asian men with a waist size of 89cm (35 inches) or more have a higher risk, as do white or black men with a waist size of 94cm (37 inches) or more.

Simple Steps to Lower Your Risk: Making a few lifestyle changes can dramatically lower the chances of developing type 2 diabetes. The same changes can also lower the chances of developing heart disease and other life taking cancers.

  1. Control Your Weight: Being overweight increases the chances of developing type 2 diabetes seven-fold. Being obese makes you 20 to 40 times more likely to develop diabetes than someone with a healthy weight. Losing weight can help if your weight is above the healthy-weight range. Check your BMI. Losing 7 to 10 percent of your current weight can cut your chances of developing type 2 diabetes in half.
  2. Get Moving and Turn Off the Television: Inactivity promotes type 2 diabetes. Working your muscles more often and making them work harder improves their ability to use insulin and absorb glucose. This puts less stress on your insulin-making cells.
  3. Tune Up Your Diet: Four dietary changes can have a big impact on the risk of type 2 diabetes-

Choose whole grains and wholegrain products over highly processed carbohydrates.

  • Skip the sugary drinks, and choose water, coffee, or tea instead.
  • Choose good fats instead of bad fats.
  • Limit red meat and avoid processed meat; choose nuts, whole grains, poultry, or fish instead.

If you are already suffering from diabetes, then do take a walk everyday and adopt healthy eating habits. Along with that relieve your stress and take proper doses of insulin or medications as prescribed by your doctor. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor.

Dear Doctor My wife suffering Thyroid problem and her TSH is 7.29 and rest T3= 89. What should we do?

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Hello, TSH 7.29 mU/L, is a sub-clinical state. Normally no treatment is advocated, unless there are troublesome symptoms which can be attributed to hypothyroidism. Since, there is no mention about any symptoms like weight gain, irregular menstruation, slow heart rate, dry skin and hair loss etc. I can not give any specific advice. Thanks.

What is Diabetes? 

Diabetes is not a disease. It is a lifestyle disease or a metabolism disease. In this diabetes, patient does not produce or use proper Insulin to convert Glucose into Sugar.

  • Type 1 Diabetes
  • Type 2 Diabetes

Type 1 diabetes occur in Childhood only. It is also known as Insulin dependent diabetes. In this the patient does not produce Insulin or use Insulin, so artificial Insulin is given to the patient.

Hi Your blood sugars are marginally on the higher side. Normal blood sugar values: FBS: 80-120 mg/dl After measl: 140-180 mg/dl I want you to follow a strict diet pattern like: Eat small meals every 2-3 hours. Avoid eating too much carbohydrates for breakfast and dinner. Have an early dinner. Do not have fruits in excess and have them only as snack. Eat lot of proteins, avoid junk food, fried foods, sugary foods, fruit juices. Exercise regularly. These if followed will reduce your blood sugar without the need for increasing your mediciations.

Is cheese good for diabetic patient. What is the benifit in consuming cheese. Which kind of cheese is really good?

M.Sc - Dietitics / Nutrition
Dietitian/Nutritionist, Bangalore
Cheese has a very low glycemic index and has minimal impact on blood sugar values in a person with diabetes. It is a great option for a snack and pairs well with carbohydrate containing foods to blunt their ability to raise blood sugar. But choose low-fat varieties.

Dear lybrate-user, Your life history that you briefly mentioned is interesting. I can understand the frustrations in life due which you try to be everywhere, do everything at the cost of your health and eventually look for competitive appreciation which in your case is not favored. But don't worry! Life is all about learning and teaching. These failures help you to win the race for tomorrow. This is the time you prioritize what you are looking for. This is the time for you to focus on what you like the most and do that. This is the time for you to loudly express your feelings and smile till your ears. I can help you break the inhibitions which are preventing you from doing this. This will not be as simple as we say it, but IT IS POSSIBLE. The only thing I expect from you is toTRUST me.
