Foot Care & Eye Care In Diabetes

MBBS
General Physician, Mumbai
Foot Care & Eye Care In Diabetes

Diabetes can wreak havoc on the eye and the foot. Proper care is necessary in order to refrain from any serious consequences. It can damage the blood vessels and the nerves of the feet resulting in numbness and permanent disability. Some of the alarming foot symptoms include bruises, cuts, cracked skin and hard spots. Some of the common measures that need to be taken for foot include checking the temperature sensation of the foot by immersing it in hot water, drying the feet gently in between the toes and using agents such as lotion, lanolin, and petroleum jelly.

  • Some of the other preventive measure includes cutting the nails when they are young and straight to ensure no injury to the foot takes place. It should be ensured the toe is not touched by the nail of the toe. A pumice stone can be used to get rid of the corns immediately after a bath. No medicated pads or sharp razors should be utilised to cut corns. The feet should be soaked in warm water before trimming nails.
  • A shoe should be put on at all times to save the feet. The shoe sole should be thoroughly checked for foreign objects such as stones and nails to ensure that the foot is not hurt. Tight shoes should be strictly avoided in order to refrain from soreness and blisters. Dry and clean socks should be put up to ensure the foot is clean. For people living in cold area, wearing thick socks should be practised. This will help the foot protect from cold. Finally, a doctor should be called in case there are any visible signs of swelling, redness, cracks, pain or sensation of burning.
  • Too much blood sugar can cause harm to the eye in four ways: It can cause damage to the retina, lens, optic nerve and vitreous gel. There could be serious repercussions of diabetes to the eye including low vision and complete loss of vision. Diabetes blocks the retina and is capable of cutting off the total supply of oxygen.
  • Some of the common symptoms of retina related problems include double vision, a pressure in one eye, problems in corner vision, flashing lights, pain in the eye, blank spots etc. A simple check up by an oculist can reveal any eye problems related to diabetes.
  • An ophthalmologist can treat the diabetes-related eye problem by medicine that blocks the protein responsible for fluid leakage and blood vessel growth. He can also go for laser treatment to treat macular edema. Even scatter laser treatments are also used for this purpose. If all else fails a doctor chooses to perform a procedure known as vitrectomy. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a General Physician.

Ayurveda - The Most Efficient Treatment for Diabetic Patients!

Ayurveda - The Most Efficient Treatment for Diabetic Patients!

With the increasing number of the diabetes patients in India, our country is moving towards the title of world diabetes capital. Due to a change in lifestyle and food habits health of the people are deteriorating day by day. The unhealthy body reduces the lifespan as well. Ayurvedic treatment is the amazing solution of the cure of this life threatening disease.

Diabetes is a health issue which is caused due to the increased level of blood sugar level in the body. The digestive system of the body breaks food we eat into sugar which is called glucose and sent to all the cells throughout the body. The cells convert the glucose into energy with the help of a special hormone known as Insulin. When body reduces the capacity to maintain the blood sugar level due to lack of insulin in the body then this condition is called diabetes.

The simple Ayurvedic remedies for diabetes which show amazing results in the treatment of the disease.

  1. Bitter goard: This is considered as the most effective remedy in the treatment of diabetes. Consuming bitter gourd juice in empty stomach every morning reduces blood sugar level of the body.
  2. Jamun seeds: The powder of Jamun seed of the leaves of Jamun tree both is used as remedies for diabetes. Chewing Jamun leaves prevents the production of sugar and keeps sugar level of the body maintained.
  3. Cinnamon powder: Cinnamon is also one of the best remedies for diabetes. It improves the functioning of the pancreas and this would increase the production of insulin in the body.
  4. Triphala: This is the mixture of three different herbs, this ingredients are useful for the decrease of the sugar level in the blood. Some of the drug formations used to cure diabetes are :
    1. Asanad tablets
    2. Trivangabhasma
    3. Chadrabrabha
    4. Vasantkusumakar
    5. Shilajitvaji

Diabetes is just not caused due to the lowering of insulin. It is mostly caused due to the lack of proper maintenance of the body. Sufferers should take care of their health by following the healthy lifestyle with the balanced diet, stress management and exercise with the natural herbs prescribed by some expert Ayurveda physicians.

Ignoring Sugar Completely - This Is What Will Happen To Your Body!

Ignoring Sugar Completely - This Is What Will Happen To Your Body!

It is a known fact that the human body requires natural sugar for it to have energy and benefit the body but, when examined, It was found that we consume more of refined sugar. Foods that we buy from markets or shops outside contains large quantities of this refined component but once we know what happens to our body and choose to stop eating sugar completely, those mouth-watering savories will no longer allure us.

Read on to know what happens to your body when you ignore sugar completely-

  1. Glow with the healthy glossy skin: Those pastry donuts and sweets will tempt you for sure, but once you cut them of blatantly, you are bound to notice a vibrant glow on your skin. This is because sugar tends to disrupt the elastin content and intervenes with collagen buildup.
  2. High on energy: Excess sugar consumption tends to make you feel fatigued and sluggish. So ignoring it can give you the power you deserve. Also, it does reduce your chances of having diabetes to almost half.
  3. Vibrant Mood: It might seem paradoxical, but it is true. Having chocolates or sweets can make us feel happy, but the feeling is temporary. On the longer and more permanent page, once you overcome the craving phase you will notice a change in your mood. Excess sugar intake can cause a short circuit in the brain giving rise to anxiety disorders and even schizophrenia. Sugar inhibits the secretion of dopamine transporter as well.
  4. More Active: Sugar has a relation with joint pain. It tends to increase inflammation and joint pain making the autoimmune disorder even worse. The more sugar content there is in your body, the more will be insulin levels. This increased insulin is the key cause of pain and inflammation. Stopping sugar completely will get you rid of this completely. You feel much more active and healthy.
  5. Quality Sleep: If you cut down sugar intake you can have a better sleep. This is because cutting of sugar has link-ups to getting relief from insomnia.
  6. Balanced weight: When you cut down sugar intake, you consume a lot less calorie thus making your system free of harmful substances and toxins. Sugary foods contain carbohydrates and fat contents that make your body obese and tired. Removing sugar will help you gain a balanced weight and make you fat-free which in its course is a relief as you shun of majority risks of having ailments related to weight issues.

Quitting sugar completely can be a real-time pain as it is almost a primeval addiction more like smoking but once it is shunned of you can experience and feel the bliss that you will be going through. Make your life healthy! If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Dietitian/Nutritionist.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Fasting glucose 140 mg is high, suggesting uncontrolled diabetes. Please inform what is the PP glucose and HbA1c%? That will give a clear idea about how the situation is. Not taking any medicine is inviting problem. Because uncontrolled high blood glucose leads to a multiple long term complications associated with eye (retina), kidneys, peripheral nerves, small and large blood vessels, lower limbs and heart. Hence it absolutely necessary to achieve a strict blood glucose control with fasting < 100 mg, PP 150 to 160 mg & HbA1c% <6.8. It is difficult to say what may be the problem with the thumb. But controlling blood glucose is absolutely essential. Thanks.

Mr. lybrate-user, If blood glucose levels go hay wire, then repeat infections tend o occur. Therefore, it is absolutely essential to maintain blood glucose levels in good control. Fasting should be closer to 100 mg, PP 160 to 180 mg & HbA1c% <7. If the control is not please se that it is regained with appropriate changes in the treatment. Thanks.

Mr. Lybrate-user, if you have diabetes, then first thing is to take appropriate treatment with suitable drugs. Then take a balanced and restricted diet that provides exact calories matching ideal body weight, blood sugar levels and extent of exercise done daily. Plus avoid sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries and sweetened aerated drinks. Also avoid alcohol and smoking. Consume more of green leafy vegetables and salads.

Mr. Sitapati lybrate-user, There are a lot of benefits claimed about honey and lemon juice. It is very difficult to scientifically substantiate all those. Basically lemon juice has a fair amount of vitamin C, plus honey is basically similar to sugar, with some antioxidant properties. If one wants this can be had. In case of a diabetic person quantity honey has to be very limited because it is just sugar. Thanks.

Hello, If a person develops hypothyroidism then weight gain is very common, particularly if it is uncontrolled. If efforts to reduce weight should succeed then TSH levels should be maintained between 3 to 4 mU/L. Plus there has to be a strict diet control, with food intake giving calories based on ideal body weight (Height in Cms - 100 = IBW). IBW X20 = calories per day. Plus daily exercise of at least 1 hour is needed. The tablet being taken to reduce weight is unlikely to help. High uric acid is seen in many people, but only a few there is a problem related to joint pains. Thanks.
