Hi, I am a diabetic patient in its initial stage.
What should I do to prevent it from getting it severe?
Firstly you take your food with 2 to 3 hr intervals, devided into 3 main meals and 3 small meals. Main meals should consist of 1/4 portion of protein and 1/4 portion of carbohydrates and 2 portion of vegetables more or less at the same time of the day to make your biological clock perfect. Avoid high calorie food such as fried things, mango, banana, sapota, juices, sweets. Secondly do regular exercise, yoga or walk. Thirdly always take your medicine in time as advised by your doctor. Keep your self hydrated and take enough sleep.

Mr. Lybrate-user, both sugar levels look good. Testing by glucometer regularly for self monitoring is good enough. Usually it is said glucometer (calpillary blod) reading is slightly higher than venous blood reading by 11%. But now a days all glucometers are calibrated to give readings like the lab ones. Difference may be visible in pp readings if at all. Frequency of testing depends upon severity and drugs used. That is if insulin is used then almost every day testing is required. Sometimes even two or three times a day, to adjust insulin dosage and avoid hyper or hypoglycemia. Those on oral drugs if blood sugar levels are well controlled then testing once in two weeks or so may be required.

Hi there is no way one can keep a cataract small or not allow it to grow. Over next few weeks to months it will develop and then it has to be operated. Restricted diet helps in controlling blood sugar. When blood sugar is control fasting should be closer to 100 mg and pp 150 to 160 mg and hba1c%, 7 if this is achieved, then that is good. Basically avoid sweets, deep fried food, junk foods, pastries and sweetened aerated drinks. Consume more of green leafy vegetables, salads, permitted fruits (100 g a day). Use whole grain products and whole grain flour for roti and chapati. Diet should provide exact calories based on your weight, extent of daily exercise and blood sugar levels. With regards.

Hello it is sign of thyroid disorder to get hair fall, dry skin, weight gain or loss, irritability etc. So, first of all, it's important to control your thyroid illness. Investigate your thyroid level first (serum tsh, t3, t4) first. Also go for other blood test like complete blood count etc. It's better to consult a dermatologist in person to start treatment for hair fall along with thyroid treatment.

There are many lifestyle and dietary guidelines that can be followed to protect against future flares or prevent gout or uric acid problems from occurring in the first instance: maintain a high fluid intake (2-4 liters a day) avoid alcohol maintain a healthy body weight eat a balanced diet limit fish, meat and poultry intake. If attempting to lose weight, avoid low-carbohydrate diets. If carbohydrate intake is insufficient, the body is unable to burn its own fat properly, releasing substances called ketones into the bloodstream. This results in a condition called ketosis that can increase the level of uric acid in the blood. It is most important to avoid foods that are high in purines, to ensure that the levels of uric acid in the blood do not get too high. Here is a list of high-purine foods to be wary of: beef kidneys brains dried beans and peas liver mackerel mushrooms lose some weight by walking or other exercise, avoid meats and get always be on a prescribed diet as prescribed by a registered dietitian. I am a registered dietitian, certified diabetes educator and a doctor, consult privately for detailed treatment plans using diet and medications.

What about your father about diabetes. Diabetes one way has a tendency of running in families among many other causes. We as indians probably by genes have the tendency - the remedy is not in our hands. But most commonly the common form of diabetes ie. Type 2 occurs more commonly due to what is known as insulin resistance this is based on sedentery life style, lack of exercise, junk food, over eating of sweets, obesity and stress. Hence you must know what is healthy life style and adopt it on daily basis. - about diet, exercise, rest relaxation etc. You must check your blood fasting and 1 and 1/2 hours after meals once in 6 months or an year. By any chance your blood sugar level in morning after 8 hours of fasting previous night is between 100 - 125 mg% you may be in impaired fasting glucose. Pp sugar ie. 2 hours after 75 grams of glucose after 8 hours of overnight fasting is 140 mg% to 199mg%, you are in impaired glucose tolerance. Both are prediabetic states. When you have a chance to prevent diabetes or atleast postpone it. For which you have to have ideal body weight, at least 30 minutes of exercise and proper diet control ie no uncontrolled free sugars, junk food, heavy intake oils etc. More of leafy vegetables regular annual check up of hba1c should remain at 6.5. Any parameter going up heralds actual diabetes.

Firstly Diabetes is a disease which can be controlled, not cured. He will need to have a strict diet control along with medication. There are many drugs available which can be given to him. If medicines do not work then Insulin can be tried. Don't loose hope, consult a diabetologist and follow his advice.

high blood pressure combined with diabetes going on for a number of years are invariably dangerous to the kidney. These conditions lead to a chronic kidney damage then to chronic kidney failure. The treatment options are limited. Most important thing is to have strict sugar and bp control. Because if these diseases are ot fully controlled then damage is progressive, can cause complete failure. So make sure that his sugar levels and bp are as normal as possible. Reduce excess salt and protein intake. Drugs like nsaids (pain killers) should be avoided. If need be dialysis should be used to help kidney functioning.

Your sugar is very dangerous < check fbs, 2 hr ppbs and hba1c and let me know. Regarding online consultation there are certain points which all should know and follow. 1) the description of the diseases should be complete in all respects, including any tests done and any medicines already taking. Just saying I have diabetes since 10 years and taking metformin cannot help a discerning doctor a scientific advice. 2) your place and name and mail id and phone number should be in the question. It is necessary at times to know where you stay to give a good advice. (for example if there the climate is warm or cold and many other factors) 3) it is necessary to keep in regular touch for some diseases like diabetes and hypertension. So make it a point to be in touch by asking private questions. And repeat the essential point of the previous question to give a continuing answer. All these are said with intention to give a scientifically correct answer and talk as if in a regular consultation about which I am very keen to. 4) for personalised attention and follow up ask privately and it is better to make online payment if you are asked to by the doctor. It involves his time and dedication to give you expert advice after studying your problem. Ask personally in case of doubts about any medical matter. it is not as easy 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) 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. For sugar 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 privately with all details like your daily eating pattern and medicines you take. I assure you a proper guidance. If you keep in touch.
