Diabetes. My question is what should I do for prevention?
Hi, Diabetes-2 is a lifestyle related problem, so making a few lifestyle changes can lower the chances of developing type 2 diabetes. -Excess weight is the single most important cause of type 2 diabetes, so control or reduce your weight if you are overweight! -Avoid sedentary lifestyle and start get moving. Brisk walking for a half hour every day reduces the risk of developing type 2 diabetes. -Modify your diet: *Choose whole grains and whole grain products over highly processed carbohydrates. The bran and fiber in whole grains make it more difficult for digestive enzymes to break down the starches into glucose. *Avoid sugary beverages which have a high glycemic load, and drinking more of this sugary stuff is associated with increased risk of diabetes. *Choose good fats instead of bad fats. Good fats found in liquid vegetable oils, nuts, and seeds. Trans fats or bad fats are found in many margarines, packaged baked goods, fried foods, fast or junk foods. *Limit intake of red meat and processed meats. Nuts, seeds, beans, tofu, or poultry are much more healthful protein choices. -Quit smoking. -Moderate alcohol consumption decreases the risk of type 2 diabetes. -Avoid taking unnecessary stress or tension! And keep an optimistic attitude in life!

Are You A Diabetic and Facing Erectile Dysfunction? Know How To Overcome It

Are You A Diabetic and Facing Erectile Dysfunction? Know How To Overcome It

Erectile dysfunction is a disorder where the person affected is unable to maintain or achieve an erection during sexual intercourse. As diabetes is a disorder that affects blood supply to organs, so the ability to achieve or maintain erections are impaired, as erections are dependent on proper blood supply to the penis. Fortunately, there are treatments for these symptoms and they are:

  1. Injection therapy and oral medications: Some medications are directly injected to the penis in order to facilitate erection, while certain other oral drugs are administered to treat symptoms of erectile dysfunction which have a higher success rate in treating people who are diabetic than those who are not.
  2. Regular exercise and a healthy diet: Exercising on a regular basis combined with a healthy diet can reduce the symptoms of both diabetes as well as erectile dysfunction.
  3. Reviewing medications: Some medications used to treat blood pressure and depression can often cause erectile dysfunction. So, the medications should be reviewed by a doctor and, if necessary, should be changed.
  4. Usage of vacuum constriction devices: These devices are used to create a pump in the penis which facilitate the ability to maintain an erection and engage in sexual intercourse. It is reported to work in 80% of the cases.
  5. Penile implants: It is a surgical procedure where a penis implant is used to treat this disorder.
  6. Intraurethral therapy: In this treatment, the medicine is placed in the urethra of the penis in the form of suppository by an applicator. These medicines improve blood flow and thus facilitate a normal erection.

pulmocare is a protein supplement ,like any other protein powder. It cannot give strength to your lungs. It is recommended only for those people who have poor appetite and food (protein ) intake. try having balanced diet with milk,dal,soyabean, eggs etc. It is not sugar free, and not recommended for diabetic patients. do regular exercise and pranayam to improve lung power.

As par bmi calculated in your case your bmi is coming to 31. That means you are falling in the category of obese. Obesity gives rise to several health problems and diabetes is one of them. It also causes a less appreciated condition called sleep apnoea syndrome. If you are snoring too much and loud. And you have significant daytime somnolence (feeling sleepy during day. If your bystanders watch that you stop breathing for long pause. Then struggle and wake up briefly and then again fall into sleep with loud snoring. You are perhaps having this syndrome. Once it is suspected. First thing will be a proper diagnosis by a chest physician (preferably) who will carry pit a sleep test. This simple test will diagnose your problem in a day. Accordingly you will be suggested treatment. In sleep apnoea. The treatment is very effective. Your daily use of revoltril will no more be a necessity. I wish you also take care of your excess weight issue more seriously and put more endeavour to bring it down to normal level. Once you achieve that. Your diabetes and blood pressure will also come under better control and you may need to takei less medicines.

Anyone with high blood sugar will pass sugar in his urine. Average blood sugar of 200-250 is not good and puts on risk of complications. You can discuss problem with your treating physician or consult privately with me online.

What causes Hashimoto's thyroiditis, and what is the best method of treatment? Can iodine help this condition?

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Mr. Lybrate-user, hashimoto's disease (ht), is an autoimmune disease where there are antibodies prepared against thyroxine secreting cells, this leads to deficiency of thyroxine hormone and hypothyroidism. There is lymphocytic infiltration of thyroid gland, it becomes firm and lobulated. There are anti bodies against thyroid peroxidase enzyme (anti tpo ab). One of the causes for ht is said to be excess iodine intake through iodinated salt. Most of the patients with ht are likely to have other autoimmune diseases like t1 dm, rheumatoid arthritis etc. Treatment is with thyroxine tablets, iodine has no role in this disease.

Dear Lybrate user, You have mentioned that she has thyroid at the beginning of your statement and that she has normal thyroid at the end. If she has thyroid, then she should be put on appropriate treatment and then investigated whether she can get pregnant. Most of the ladies with thyroid problem conceive.
