Increase in urinary frequency may be due to diabetes mellitus, diabetes insipidus, urinary tract infections, bladder stones or mass etc. Get an usg kubp done to exclude cystitis (bladder infection) or bladder stone. If there is no such symptoms present like burning in urine, fasting blood sugar and post prandial blood sugar should be checked to exclude diabetes if not done recently. Serum sodium, 24hr urine volume and osmolality is checked for excluding diabetes insipidus. Also avoid sweetened drinks, alcohol and excess amount of coffe or tea intake. Water intake should be restricted to 3-4 litres per day. Also inform about any history of trauma or neurological diseases in past. They may cause overactive bladder. Then according to reports furthur treatment can be done.

Sugar or more appropriately glucose is the only energy currency of the body. Without glucose, the first cells that get effected in the body are brain cells which cannot withstand the deficiency of glucose for even 15 minutes. We believe that whatever sugar that rises or falls in our blood is related only to the food that we have eaten immediately. This is partially true because our body keeps on storing surplus glucose and also creates its own glucose in the liver, when such a need arises. When we fast, the gates of such glucose stores are opened by the body so that our cells don's die out of starvation. When you took a small meal- it was not just the contribution of that meal but also your glucose stores that made that 124 mg rise!

Please see that four tablets may be too much, and vicks action 500 is not safe, simply do salt water gurgle instead of vicks action 500.

Sir it has been a long time that u r on medication for diabetes. Now you're catching advanced symptoms of diabetes ie. Diabetic neuropathy where firstly nerve endings in our body are involved ie in hands and feets causing numbness. Sorry sir I cant help u at this position. You have to take guidance of your physician of 20 yrs. Only he can guide u in right direction.

Your chance of having normal baby depends on certain things like controlled thyroid status, detailed usg, regular check up, blood pressure, sugar etc. Vaginal delivery is not always risky if the conditions are well controlled but at this age, you may have prolonged labour.

What are all the reasons for diabetes and how to maintain the sugar level in our body.

PGDD, RD, Bachelor of Home Science
Dietitian/Nutritionist, Mumbai
What are all the reasons for diabetes and how to maintain the sugar level in our body.
Hye, thanks for the query. 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 - the sugar levels will fluctuate depending on what you ate or did not eat, stress levels and activity levels. You have to try and manage a balanced carb intake. Have small frequent meals. Do not fast for long hours. You have to eat 3 main and 3 mid meals. Your diet must include whole grains, seasonal fruits, vegetables, small amounts of nuts and dairy and pulses or dals or lean meats like chicken or fish and egg. Starchy vegetables need to be planned into the diet. Avoid a very heavy meal at one time. Avoid fruit juices, aerated drinks or sugarcane juice, honey, jaggery or sugar. Avoid junk foods. Exercise and stay active. Avoid exercise if sugar levels are above 250mg/dl. Do not attempt to try out too many remedies as you could go into hypoglycaemia. Sleep well. It's all a matter of discipline.

Your fasting and pp sugars are high. You need to take medicines for the same at the earliest. Stop all simple sugars or direct carbohydrates. Exercise in any form but regularly for about half hour at a time. You are still very young. So you should take control of diabetes as soon as possible.

My wife , aged 26 was recently diagonised with Diabeties Type 2. Her family history has diabetes. But never expected that she would get it so soon. Her lifestyle is a normal one. Good sleep, regular home cooked food, rare junk food, no alcohol and physically fit. Almost at the same time of the diagnosis we observed stretch marks on her thighs and shoulders. They were almost overnight. Is this diabetes or anything else that's causing this?

MD - General Medicine, MBBS
General Physician,
Whenever we detect diabetes in young people, it's usually of type 1. Another possibility is an increased steroid levels in the body(called cushing's syndrome) which could explain the stretch marks and diabetes. I recommend you to consult a endocrinologist.

Cyst in thyroid needs further investigation. All cyst do not require removal. So first things first. Get to know the reason of these cysts and there prognosis before getting worried about surgery or treatment.
