If her total count is high then probably she has bad infection in her interstitial lung disease (ild. She may need suitable antibiotics and good sugar control. As she is 87 I think better to consult in person with her all reports for better results.

She is a diabetic patient. Sometimes she feel very fatigue. Please give me a suggestion.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Diabetes affects all organs in the body – Eyes, kidneys, nerves, reproductive system all are affected, In fact, from toe to hair. For diabetic control, patient and doctor should be in constant touch for regular follow up and advice. The common symptoms are:-Both types of diabetes have some of the same tell-tale warning signs. Hunger and fatigue. Your body converts the food you eat into glucose that your cells use for energy. But your cells need insulin to bring the glucose in. If your body doesn't make enough or any insulin, or if your cells resist the insulin your body makes, the glucose can't get into them and you have no energy. This can make you more hungry and tired than usual. Urinating more often and being thirstier. The average person usually has to pee between four and seven times in 24 hours, but people with diabetes may go a lot more. Dry mouth and itchy skin. Because your body is using fluids to make pee, there's less moisture for other things. You could get dehydrated, and your mouth may feel dry. Dry skin can make you itchy. Blurred vision. Changing fluid levels in your body could make the lenses in your eyes swell up. They change shape and lose their ability to focus. Diabetes, often referred to by doctors as diabetes mellitus, describes a group of metabolic diseases in which the person has high blood glucose (blood sugar), either because insulin production is inadequate, or because the body's cells do not respond properly to insulin, or both. It is a difficult task to control blood sugar in the desired normal range. Whatever we eat is metabolised to sugar in the body to provide energy for our daily activities. For the absolute control, one has to monitor his / her blood sugar at regular intervals (Self-Monitoring of Blood glucose – SMBG). Though difficult, this can be done by a glucometer and keep a record. Get an idea of Fasting sugar (FBS) and 2 hours after food (PPBS), & HbA1C (inform me) and check before dinner and after every major food. The basic idea is to reduce the food intake to 1/3 of what you take now. The dictum of sugar control is diet, exercise, diet + medicine and at later stage medicine+ Insulin will be needed. There are different diet plans of varying calories for each person depending on his activity & life style. For diabetes, hypertension (high BP) and many long-term illness control there is the need for regular advice and follow up. Just one time consultation or advice is not enough to guide a diabetic in scientifically & medically correct manner. For giving you regular follow up you ask me with all details like your daily eating pattern and medicines you take. I assure you a proper guidance. If you keep in touch personally.

I am 61 years diabetic DM2 using okamet 500 mg metformin and half daonil twice daily since 45 days after reducing daonil full twice daily to control FBs. And Pbs. I am taking COSART H and Selekone xl 50 against cardace 10 mg I was taking with selekone xl 50 earlier. Please advise any bad effects will come in long usage.

MD - Diabetology, Membership of the Royal College of Surgeons (MRCS), MBBS
Endocrinologist, Kochi
Most of these medicines are quite safe in the long term. However, nowadays, we don't prescribe daonil (glyburide) as often as in the earlier days. The reasons being, there are better alternatives available. Daonil, because of its long duration of action, can cause troublesome hypoglycemia that takes a long time to resolve.

What is the difference between actions of metformin and glimepride. Are these to be taken before food or after food and why?

Practical Course in Diabetology, POST GRADUATE COURSE IN DIABETOLOGY, MBBS

Glimipride is secretagog, it increases release of insulin from pancreas where as metformin is antihyperglycemic it facilitate utilisation of sugar in muscle and checks glucose output from liver, improves insulin sensitivity.

My mom has thyroid from last 20 years now she is taking 100 mg thyroxine , what to do.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Mr. Lybrate-user, she has to continue taking thyroxine for life time. Dosage may change depending upon tsh levels. Usually on treatment to achieve good control of hypothyroidism, tsh should be between 3 to 4 milli units/l. If level goes up, then dose may have to be increased. Plus she should exercise regularly so as to avoid weight increase. Also follow all instructions regarding avoiding certain foods. Thanks.

My Mom got sugar and thyroid for last two months. Please suggest me some diet chart.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Mr. Lybrate-user, diet has to be very specific for each patient. To suggest that one needs to know height, weight, fasting & pp blood glucose levels, present treatment with dosage, present dietary pattern and extent of daily exercise. With out these details diet can not be prescribed or suggested. However, she should avoid sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries, white bread, other bakery items, sweetened aerated drinks and fructose corn syrup containing products. She should consume more of green leafy vegetables, permitted fruits (about 100 g a day). She should use whole grain flour for chapati and roti. Because of hypothyroidism she should avoid taking soy beans, soy containing products, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, radish, peanuts, mustard and coffee. Thanks.

Hello doctor my father was suffering sugar problem last two years what should I do his age 53.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Mr. Lybrate-user, I am sure he is already on appropriate treatment, that should be continued. Strive to maintain fasting sugar closer to 100 mg and pp between 150 to 160 mg/100ml.& hba1c%<7. These levels will help in preventing or delaying long term complications of diabetes mellitus. Otherwise, consequences can be fairly bad. Apart from regular medication he should also take a restricted but balanced diet, that gives exact calories matching needs based on ideal body weight, sugar levels and extent of daily physical activity. Daily exercise of 1 hour plus is a must. He should avoid sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods and pastries. Should also refrain from alcohol, sweetened aerated drinks and smoking. Also avoid ghee, butter and high fat milk products like cheese.
