You are feeling low probably because of high blood sugar and maybe heat exhaustion. Your fasting needs to be atleast under 130 and pp less than 160.

I have junevile Diabetes (type-1) from 12 years. On the end of November 2017's night due to occurrence of hypoglycemia with epilepsy my shoulder got dislocated with minute crack. I undergone shoulder reduction in local hospital but the doctor can't fix the issue. Here I told the doctor I had Diabetes problem and how the shoulder get dislocated. Then I shifted to another hospital there due to some reasons my parents told that the incident happened due to an accident. There I was again undergone shoulder reduction with surgery. K wire was used here. Now I was fine somehow. But upto 60% of my shoulder movements are restricted. My question: Is there any specific treatment for shoulder dislocated due to hypoglycemia? Also how can a diabetic person (type 1) gain weight? HbA1c - 8.3 (currently) HbA1c-7.2 (before 3 months)

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. There's no relationship between hypoglycemia and dislocation of shoulder joint. That is purly due to fall & injury. Further there's no special treatment due to hypoglycemia. As regards the weight gain, a diabetic person can gain weight & build muscles too. But first blood glucose has to be under better control. HbA1c % should be around 6.8% After achieving good control and adding extra proteins to diet one can build muscles. Thanks.

Arhiji, Thanks for the query. To bring down TSH levels to normal it takes at least 6 weeks after starting the treatment with adequate dose of Levothyroxine. When on treatment TSH should be maintained around 3 to 4 mU/L. At that level all the symptoms of hypothyroidism are in check. However, if you want to conceive, then it is essential to maintain TSH level closer to 2 mU/L. Further, during pregnancy TSH should be maintained as follows: 1st Trimester: 0.1 to 2.5 mU/l, 2nd Trimester: 0.2 to 3.0 mU/L & 3rd Trimester: 0.3 to 3.0 mU/l. These levels should be critically adhered to. As lack of thyroxine affects fetal brain development in the first 28 days, later, fetal growth also depends on adequate Thyroxine plus the desired outcome of pregnancy. Thanks.

usually t1 diabetes is not exactly hereditary, meaning if father has t1 dm all children will get it. But the possibility is said to be 1 in 17. (ada data). Apart from genes environment and viral involvement also is said to be the cause. So the chances are very less of the child developing t1 diabetes.

Till such time your food and exercise is controlling your sugars, you need not worry about medicine. Over a period of time, if there is insulin resistance or production of insulin goes down, then medicines may have to be started.

Diabetes Type 2 Treatment And Management Through Ayurveda!

Although this disorder has been present among people since the inception of mankind, the rate of increase among the number of patients in recent years is alarming to say the least. The primary culprits are lifestyle issues such as bad diet, lack of physical exercise and stress. However, some people are genetically predisposed to it as well. Diabetes is a silent killer as complications caused by it are one of the largest killers on the planet.

The Ayurvedic route
Ayurveda has a long history of successfully dealing with this scourge dating back thousands of years. Diabetes is known as ‘Madhumeha’ and is often classified as ‘Maharoga’ as it causes multiple complications. The Ayurvedic route has many facets such as exercises, filtering toxins and balancing the ‘doshas’ through diet and herbs to control the effects of diabetes. Let’s look at some of the remedies for controlling and correcting symptoms of diabetes in Ayurveda.

  • Diet: This is one of the most important changes that you need to make in your life to control symptoms of diabetes. Certain food types are an absolute no-no in Ayurveda if you have diabetes while certain other types of food are encouraged as they help keep it in control.
  • Food types encouraged in Ayurveda: Amla, bitter gourd, fenugreek seeds (methi), spinach, jamun, drumsticks, garlic, turmeric, snake gourd, barley, wheat, tulsi, pepper, soya bean, cucumber and bel (Indian Bael) among others
  • Food types discouraged in Ayurveda: Processed sugar or any food that contains a high amount of it, unrefined sugar in large quantities, sugar cane juice, oil, jaggery, ghee, cakes, alcohol, foods rich in carbohydrates such as rice or rotis in excess quantities, curd, junk and oily foods, butter, cold drinks and sweets among others
  • Home Remedies and herbs: Ayurveda prescribes many forms of juices and concoctions which can be easily prepared at home to control blood sugar levels and also limit the symptoms. Some of the herbs and preparations used in the treatment of diabetes are mentioned below.
    • Bitter gourd juice or Karela taken early in the morning
    • A mixture of aloe vera gel and ground bay leaf (tez patta)
    • Banyan tree bark prepared in boiled water
    • Cinnamon powder boiled in water
    • Neem, turmeric and tulsi preparations
  • Yoga and exercises: Exercising and ensuring that the metabolism is kept active to check blood sugar levels is of utmost importance when you are diabetic. Yoga is one of the best methods to accomplish this. In general, light walking is prescribed but there are certain yoga poses which are especially beneficial for diabetes. Some of these are:
    • Shalabhasana or the locust pose
    • Ardha matsyendrasana or the half spinal twist pose
    • Peacock pose or Mayurasana
    • Katichakrasana or the waist rotating pose
    • Naddishuddhi Pranayama
    • Surya namaskar among others

However, it is important that you are proficient in the easier forms of yoga first and then have proper instruction before you try the harder poses. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!
