Poly Cystic Ovarian Disease (PCOD)

MBBS, DGO
Gynaecologist, Delhi
Poly Cystic Ovarian Disease (PCOD)

A rising number of teenage girls in the country are getting affected with Poly Cystic Ovarian Disease or PCOD. Though an advanced menarche has become very rampant these days, there are many young women who are suffering from a delay in menarche which in turn is leading to PCOD as opined by gynaecologists. Obesity and sedentary lifestyle among young people have caused a rapid doubling of PCOD cases in the past five to eight years.

Occurrence and Symptoms:

Gynaecologists report that they get at least 15 fresh instances of PCOD cases, and a considerable number of teenagers aged 16-17 are not getting their menarche. Such patients are recommended to take a strictly balanced diet which will help them to lose weight. Initially, their mothers think that they would experience their menarche in proper time, but some girls are diagnosed with PCOD when taken to a family gynaecologist. Even worse, they could never imagine that their obesity can pave the way for such a grave health issue. PCOD can cause numerous other problems like delayed and irregular menses, rapid weight gain and tremendous difficulty in losing weight, developing acne and blocked skin pores.

Furthermore, it leads to thinning of hair and excessive growth of hair on chest, back and face. Infertility, continual miscarriage, high blood pressure and high blood sugar are also common with PCOD.

Help yourself with the right diet:

There is no proven evidence regarding the cause of PCOD though gynaecologists are of the opinion that some females possess a predisposition to this disease, and it may run hereditarily in the family. You can alleviate your PCOD symptoms to a considerable extent by regulating your diet properly.

Have loads of fruits and green leafy vegetables and try to abstain from dairy products as many experts believe that dairy products are a direct cause of an increase in insulin levels, which can aggravate skin troubles along with other PCOD symptoms. Avoiding red meat and eating lean meat instead will help the condition and reduce the chances of infertility. It is always recommended to avoid hydrogenated and saturated fats, which are normally found in animal and dairy-based food. Try to put a stop to cheese, cottage cheese, clarified butter, pork, lamb, beef, etc. and certain baked products like cookies, cakes and fudges as they will trigger a rise in your blood sugar and cholesterol levels.

PCOD is such a condition which you can never afford to overlook. If you had been facing any of the common symptoms, then it is probably time to pay a visit to a responsive gynaecologist.

Mr Sanjeet, If you have been diagnosed to have diabetes mellitus (T2), then only way to remain fit and healthy is to take prescribed medication regularly, without missing the dose, take a planned restricted diet, that gives exact calories based on your ideal body weight, sugar levels and extent of physical exercise. Avoid sweets, direct sugar and jaggery, deep fried foods, junk foods and pastries. Consume more of green leafy vegetables and salads, permitted fruits (100 g a day). Refrain from alcohol and smoking. This changed life style has to be adapted for your life. The disease does not go away, you have to learn to live with it.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. There is no single oil that is either best or safest. It has to be a combination of 2 o 3 different oils. Now a days there are blended oils available. However, minimal oil usage is ideal. Thanks.

lybrate-user, Both Glycomet 500 mg and 500 mg SR tablets contain same medication Metformin 500 mg. The difference is SR has a formulation which releases the drug over 6 to 8 hours. One of the advantage claimed is SR tends to be better tolerated. Some patients complain of gastrointestinal side effects, then SR is advised. As regards drug action both are same. Thanks.

Tingling burning numbness in feet are signs of neuropathy. Gradully it may lead to loss temp sensation, vibration and touch sensations. Claw fingers gradully appears as neuropathy progresses. Calosities, bunions appears as pressure points of feet changes. Calosities may lead to neuropathic ulceration. Ecosprin is blood thinner. Normally diabetics have extensive atherosclerosis and arteriosclerosis which diminish blood flow to feet. Diabetes patients have more viscous blood due to high sugars. Thick blood is more prone to get clotted. Keeping sugar levels under control and regular physical activity will help.

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.

Lybrate-userji, for a patient with diabetes, it ideal to maintain blood sugar - fasting around 100 mg, pp 150 to 160 mg and hba1c% <7. To achieve this following steps need to be taken: 1) take prescribed medications regularly without missinga singel dose, 2) take balanced but restricted diet based on ideal body weight, extent of daily physical activity and sugar levels. 3) to exercise daily for about 1 hour, so as to maintain normal weight, increase glucose utilisation and reduce insulin resistance. 4) to consume more of green leafy vegetables and salads, also permitted fruits (100 g a day). 5) refrain from alcohol and smoking, 6) avoid sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries and sweetened aerated drinks (colas), highly processed foods, bakery items and high fat milk products. Thaks for the question.

Mr. lybrate-user, Only appropriate treatment for diabetes is available with modern medical treatment. Other practices at best can be just supportive therapies. Unfortunately a lot of false claims are made about those drugs controlling and even curing diabetes, but without any evidence. In the world there is no other treatment for diabetes than modern medicine. If you still want to try go ahead. Thanks.

uric acid is produced when the body breaks down a chemical called purine. Purine occurs naturally in your body, but it's also found in certain foods. Uric acid is eliminated from the body in urine. A gout diet may help decrease uric acid levels in the blood. While a gout diet is not a cure, it may lower the risk of recurring painful gout attacks and slow the progression of joint damage. Medication also is needed to manage pain and to lower levels of uric acid. Purpose a little history uric acid: manage high uric acid with nutrition saturated fat, trans fat, sugar and alcohol all these affect your triglycerides, a type of fat that can clog your arteries and increase your risk for heart attacks and strokes. Uric acid: manage high uric acid with nutrition high-fructose corn syrup this is a type of sweetener in soft drinks and other processed foods that can elevate your levels of triglyceride and uric acid - a chemical associated with diabetes, gout, alcoholism, kidney disease and other health problems. Uric acid: manage high uric acid with nutrition drink plenty of fluids to help flush uric acid from your body drink a minimum of 3 and 1/2 liters of water daily. Water is a medium that aids the kidney to'strain' the impurities from your body. Uric acid: manage high uric acid with nutrition also avoid high-protein weight-loss diets which can cause you to produce too much uric acid (hyperuricemia). Uric acid: manage high uric acid with nutrition limit meat, poultry and fish - animal proteins are high in purine and this will result in high uric acid levels in the body uric acid: manage high uric acid with nutrition t limit or avoid alcohol alcohol interferes with the elimination of uric acid from your body. Drinking beer in particular has been linked to gout attacks. If you are prone to uric acid attacks, limit alcohol consumption to one drink three times a week. Uric acid: manage high uric acid with nutrition t choose complex carbohydrates eat more whole grains, fruits and vegetables and fewer refined carbohydrates such as white bread, cakes and candy. Because foods rich in complex carbohydrates promote feelings of fullness, and prevent overeating and are useful in maintaining a healthy weight.

Hi, presently you are on triple drug therapy with optimal dose of each medicine. As your sugar after food is 260 it seems that more tighter control of blood glucose levels is needed the exact blood glucose for you may differ according to your age and associated comorbidities. But before increasing your medicines it is necessary to know whether you are taking present medications in correct timings voglibose has to be taken 15 to 20 minutes before food along with medications exercise and diet control will help a lot exercise will reduce overall medicines requirements by decreasing insulin resistance and small but frequent diet will not allow blood glucose to rise up too high!

Diabetics rarely touch levels of 100 as fasting and less than 180 as postprandial, your sugar is under control, no need to increase the dose, but watch our for extra sugars in the food/ fruits.
