I am 63 years old and I am having sugar for the past 10 years. Needs your suggestion.

First thing a diabetes patient needs to do is lifestyle modification which means doing regular physical exercise, morning walk for at least 30 mins for at least 4 days a week. While having meal, restrict amount of carbohydrates ( rice, sugar, mangoes, banana ) and fat ( oils, butter, mutton) and take plenty of green leafy vegetables. If still your blood sugar is above the target level despite adequate lifestyle modification, you need to take medicines. According to level of blood sugar control, you may need to take more than one diabetes medicines regualrly. Do check your blood pressure, fbs, ppbs, hba1c, urea, creatinine, urine r/e with acr, lipid profile, ecg at 3-4 months interval and report it to your doctor. Never skip your medicines without consultation with your doctor. Stay away from anxiety and stress. Keep your mind refreshed. Always keep a close look at your feet and sole. If you find any ulcers, cuts, numbness immediately consult your doctor. Consult an eye doctor for checking your eyes at least once a year. Hope this helps. Dr. S. Modak.

No it will not cause any problem in your married life. As with any health concern, especially leading up to pregnancy or after conception, discuss all concerns with your healthcare provider. Hypertension (high blood pressure) can cause problems with erection, either directly or as a side effect of medication, as some medications used to treat hypertension in men can lead to decreased fertility. Spironolactone, which is found in several medications for high blood pressure, is believed to interfere with sperm production. Other blood pressure medicines can interfere with the sperm's ability to fertilize an egg. There are a number of things that you can do to help preserve and promote your fertility. Eat a healthy, balanced diet. Take regular exercise. Try to maintain your weight in the ideal range. Don't smoke & quit alcohol consumption. Don't use recreational drugs. Try to reduce stress.

In my view you should have through check up like lft-liver function test, kft- kidney function test, you need surgical or minimal invasive intervention like lithotripsy -using ultrasound shock waves, by which a kidney stone or other calculus is broken into small particles that can be passed out by the body.

My latest blood sugar checked today at home is 114 mg/dl ( by One Touch Glucometer of Johnson & Johnson) and latest TSH level is 1.6 mIU/ml, T3 is 1.2 ng/ml and T4 is 10.0 mcg/dl. Is the blood sugar checked at home with this glucometer are as accurate as lab results? My latest Hb1Ac is 6.1. I got diabetes only a year back and this was not the case in the beginning. I do feel nausea in the morning even if I eat less, don't eat or eat full in the breakfast. I do feel full by just eating quite lesser amount of food than I used to eat before. So, what is the solution of my weariness everyday? Is it food or medicine? I have to take Metformin since it controls my blood sugar very effectively and it is safer drug than other drugs. I am basically Pharmacist and can understand that organs lose it's efficiency day by day in diabetes if not controlled within limits. But as I check my blood sugar every week or two at home, it generally comes within limit of 110 mg/dl with sometimes going out of limit once in a while by 10-20 points if I have eaten some sweets or eaten more carbs or eaten in more quantity. What habits I should follow in order to control blood sugar along with feeling energetic everyday?

Diabetes can also fluctuate everyday. A better parameter is hba1c. Which gives you an average sugar of last 2 months. You should follow a good exercise and diet regimen. You may need allopathy medicines some day.

Dear lybrate user, you should immediately stop the medication for blood pressure. Regarding your problem of diabetes I fear that you may have become insulin dependant diabetic patient. In that case you should go for insulin injection. However, you could try homoeopathic uranium nit q, 30 drops, thrice daily, after meals, in a cup of water for one month. Check your blood sugar level after one month of medication. If you do not observe any decrease in your blood sugar level then you should go for insulin injection.

Your blood sugar levels are not in diabetic range, though fasting readings are mildly high. It should be less than 100. Do not worry, avoid excess sugar and sweats. Do regular exercise, maintain your weight, check your blood sugar regularly.

Yes some women do give up on life at 60 plus. Do tell her that women get a new life after menopause. Regarding diabetes, there are plenty like her showing good control with diet and medicine. Having less teeth is one of the ageing process. Depend on liquid nourishing food and calories or get her a good set of dentures. Heart surgery or procedures are carried out on diabetics with great success. Take her to a heart hospital and let her talk with few recovered patients so that her confidence levels are high before she goes for any procedures. Good luck.

Mr. Lybrate-user, if someone has diabetes then it is essential to get it treated with appro0riate drugs either oral anti diabetes drugs or insulin. Choice of drugs will depend on the age, type of diabetes and severity of the condition. When diabetes is uncontrolled weight loss does occur. Once disease is well controlled, then patient tends to regain the weight in a few months. Thanks.

Mr vivek, may I know why you are interested in shifting to insulin injections? usually in t2 dm people shit to insulin when the sugar control is not good with oral anti diabetic drugs. Hence please give details about current fasting, pp sugar levels and hba1c% and your physical activity. If you feel shifting is needed, it can be done any time and will help in better control.
