Dear Doctor, My parents are diabetic. If they feel sweating due to low sugar levels then can we give them hydralyte tablets? Hydralyte tablets are soluble in water and are similar to the electral / glucon C powder administered to patients suffering from nausea or diahorrea.

Dear friend if your parents prespire due to low sugar levels then give them sugar or glucose because that is exactly what will save them. We should try to simplify complicated situations and not try to complicate simple situations. Hope I have driven my point clear to you. Regards.

My random sugar level is 160. I finished lunch at 1.50 pm & blood taken for test at 2.16 pm. Please advise.
Thanks for the query. RBG of 160 mg is high. It points out that there is a problem. But to decide whether one has diabetes or not can only be decided by doing - Fasting, PP and HbA1c%. So please get these tests and then only a correct advise can be given. To confirm diabetes - FBG has to be 126 mg and above, PP 200 mg and above & HbA1c% 6.5 and above. So my suggestion is please get these tests at the earliest and come back with details. Thanks.

Hello, Unfortunately, bananas are made culprits, there is, nothing called 'don't eat'.moderation, portion sizes and timings, matter. Which again depends, on the health condition.

As your all reports are normal you just do maintain proper diet and do regular exercise.These two can reduce your medicinal dose even can reduce insulin taking.Do exercise like yoga,swimming,walking,push ups.You can use fenugreek seeds with 1/2 glass water on an empty stomach in the morning but you have to adjust your medication.Eat small amount of food more frequently.Take food 5-6 times instead of 3 big meals.Take lots of watery and whole fruits,vegetables.Use unrefined foods but not more.Take extra protein.Use healthy fats small amount.Avoid sugar, juice,fast foods,junk foods,processed foods.No underground vegetables,banana,pumpkin.Avoid smoking,alcohol.Drink lots of water specially before meals.Stay stress free and take proper rest.You can use nutritional supplements to control diabetes.

Mr Iqbal, 100 g rice, apple, orange all this OK, provided your blood sugar levels are in control. You are on Insulin 30/70, 18 units twice a day plus is there any other oral anti diabetes drug ? Ayurvedic drugs could be just a supportive therapy. If diabetes is in control then fasting should be closer to 100 mg and PP should be around 150 to 170 mg and HbA1c% should be <7%. If all these values are there then eating fruits that too 1 fruit a day is fine. Rice can be had, but in lesser quantity. Over all caloric intake per day has to be kept in mind. It should not exceed your requirement based on ideal body weight, sugar levels and extent of daily exercise.

My daughter aged 40 had a blood test last week her homocysteine level is 18. 34. What does this indicate? she is diabetic and also has thyroid.

DHMS (Diploma in Homeopathic Medicine and Surgery)
Homeopath, Ludhiana
Abnormally high levels of homocysteine in the serum, above 15 ?mol/l, are a medical condition called hyperhomocysteinemia. This has been claimed to be a significant risk factor for the development of a wide range of diseases, including thrombosis, neuropsychiatric illness, and fractures. It is also found to be associated with microalbuminuria which is a strong indicator of the risk of future cardiovascular disease and renal dysfunction.

You are in subclinical category. You should avoid soy beans, soy containing products, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, radish, mustard, peanuts and coffee. Plus should exercise to avoid weight increase also take iodinated salt and a restricted diet to keep weight in check. In subclinical condition (with tsh levels between 6 to 10 milli units/ ml) unless there are some specific troublesome symptoms treatment with thyroxine is not started. Your weight is t2 kgs, please let me know if it has increased during last few months or it has been like that earlier too.

How is your sugar control. You can definitely go ahead with your surgery provided the sugar control is good. You have to understand that everything is inter related. Bad sugars lead to bad teeth (infection) and bad teeth can lead to bad sugars so check your hba1c and fasting sugars.

Simple Yet Effective Lifestyle Changes to Help You Manage Diabetes!

Simple Yet Effective Lifestyle Changes to Help You Manage Diabetes!

Keeping the blood sugar at the recommended level can be a challenging task at times. While timely medication is a key prerequisite for controlling diabetes, lifestyle changes plays an important role in keeping the blood sugar under control.

Here is a list of simple yet effective ways of managing diabetes.

  1. Food
    • Portion size and carbohydrate count: Carbohydrates are the single most important food element that impacts the level of blood sugar in body. People taking insulin shots should ensure that the portion size of carbohydrates does not exceed the recommended level. Maintaining a diary to keep a check on the carbohydrate count can help in this case.
    • Balanced diet: For people suffering from diabetes, it is necessary to have a good mix of fruits, vegetables, fat, starch and protein in each meal. Carbohydrates should be consumed in the form of fruits and whole grains. A doctor advice in this matter can be of great help.
    • Avoid sweetened beverages: Sweetened beverages with high sucrose and fructose content have high-calorie content that can directly impact the blood-sugar level. Refraining from these sweetened drinks is a must for diabetes patients.
  2. Exercise
    • Make an exercise plan: Exercising for half hour on a daily basis is highly beneficial for diabetes patients. It makes sense to consult a doctor about the type of exercise that can be done regularly. The right mix of aerobic, cardio and muscle exercise should do the trick.
    • Stay hydrated: Staying hydrated is very important during exercise. Dehydration can bring down the blood-sugar level drastically.
    • Be prepared: Carrying a small dose of glucose or a snack can come in handy. In case the blood-sugar level drops to an alarming level while exercising, the glucose will ensure that it brings it back to normal quickly.
  3. Alcohol
    • Follow the doctor’s instruction: Alcohol is known to cause a lot of complications for diabetic patients. For people whose diabetes is under control, make sure that the doctor gives his go ahead for alcohol consumption.
    • Drink carefully: If you get a doctors nod to drink make sure that dry wines and light beer are consumed. These drinks tend to have lesser calories and carbohydrates. Their impact on the blood-sugar level, therefore, becomes minimal.
  4. Stress
    • Pattern: Stress greatly increases the blood-sugar level. While it is difficult to be stress-free, try to look for a pattern by checking the blood-sugar level after prolonged stress. This will help to identify a pattern which can then be addressed with methods such as yoga, hobby practicing, laughter therapy, etc.
    • Get help: Stress management is not an easy task. If stress cannot be controlled with a conventional approached, it makes sense to get professional help to reduce stress.

Does Celiac Disease Reduce Fertility?

MRCOG, MD - Obstetrics & Gynaecology, DNB (Obstetrics and Gynecology), MBBS
Gynaecologist, Delhi
Does Celiac Disease Reduce Fertility?

Celiac disease is a condition in which the small intestine becomes sensitive and reactive to gluten, leading to difficulty in digesting food. Gluten is a kind of a protein found in wheat or barley. In reality, if either of the partners is suffering from celiac disease then you are prone to fertility related issues.

Impact of Celiac disease

As compared to men, this disease is more common among women in general. Women suffering from the disease are generally more prone to infertility and other genealogical problems like preterm births and miscarriages. In the case of men, the disease causes the infertility problems including sperm abnormalities such as low count, abnormal shape, reduced function and such others. Additionally, men with the untreated celiac disease might also have reduced levels to testosterone.

Infertility and Celiac disease

Infertility is one of the lesser known effects of the celiac disease, which is relatively uncommon amongst people. The disease causes infertility by affecting the menstrual cycle among women either in a direct or indirect manner. Some of the infertility related problems caused due the disease are listed below.

  • Delayed occurrence of menstruation
  • Early menopause
  • Secondary amenorrhea (a medical condition associated with sudden cessation of menstruation for 6 months or more)
  • Hormonal disruptions and abnormal changes

Diagnosis

Celiac disease is usually diagnosed by its own set of underlying symptoms such as chronic fatigue syndrome, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), iron-deficiency anemia, and such others. Additionally, the condition can be diagnosed if a person is having repeated miscarriages or inability to conceive for unidentified causes.

What can you do about it?

If you experience symptoms of Celiac disease, consult your doctor at the earliest and follow the treatments and preventative measures suggested. Additionally, you can also consult a dietician who will help you to move on to a low grain or no grain diet that would help you further to avoid the disease.
