Dear Dr. my Glucose fasting 110 mg/dL andPP 149 mg/dL. Shall I take dates/jam/honey.

Dear Dr. my Glucose fasting 110 mg/dL andPP 149 mg/dL. Shall I take dates/jam/honey.
Mr. lybrate-user, FBS 110 mg & PP149 mg /100 ml, is referred as pre-diabetes level. It means you have a tendency to develop diabetes any time during coming years, unless precautions are taken. A modified lifestyle is needed to be adapted to prevent or postpone developing of diabetes. Which means avoiding sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries and other bakery items sweetened aerated drinks, sweet corn syrup containing food products and high fat milk products. Plus daily exercise of 1 hour and refraining from smoking and alcohol. Thanks.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for your query. If you have FBG of 180 mg, means there diabetes. This needs to be treated. The reason for it lack of insulin production, plus lack of physical activity and if one is over weight, then presence of fat also affects insulin action. You need to get a diabetic profile done which includes fasting, PP blood glucose test, HbA1c%, creatinine, urea and uric acid. Plus also get lipid profile done and come back with all the details, then I will be able to guide in relation to specific treatment. Or you may contact your local doctor there. But it is absolutely essential to start treatment, plus a restricted diet and regular exercise of at least 1 hour a day. Thanks.

Sir, my mom is having diabetes type 2 she is in great depression because of that can you help me to solve her problem.
Dear lybrate-user, nice to see such an young boy trying to get help for mom. Diabetes and depression can co occur. Both need treatment. Most of the time your diabetes doctor can manage the depression also by counselling and if necessary with antidepressant tablets. Only when your mom is suicidal or not responding to usual dose and treatment, he/she will refer to psychiatrist. Please request her to discuss with the doctor freely about her depression. Alternately you can go in during her consultation and tell the doctor about her depression.

I'm loosing wait because m diabetic and using tablets how can I gain mussels and weight again?

I'm loosing wait because m diabetic and using tablets how can I gain mussels and weight again?
Hi lybrate-user to gain weight and balance your diabetes you need to combine a balanced eating pattern with regular physical activity. You should be eating at least 6 small meals a day, rather than sticking to 3 square meals. You could divide it as 3 main meals and 3 snacks. You need to be eating every 2-3 hours. Space out snacks during the day so you don't spoil your appetite. Bread, cereal, rice, whole wheat, dalia and pasta: biscuits, and corn-bread are good sources of carbohydrates. Fruits: dried fruits, fruit nectars, and large quantities of fresh fruits vegetables: include, potatoes, peas, corn in your diet. Meat, poultry, fish, dry beans, eggs, and nuts: beef, pork, lamb, poultry, salmon, omelets, nuts, peanut butter, kidney beans, chickpeas will help you gain weight. Include dairy products like milk, yogurt, and cheese: milk, fruited yogurts, hard cheeses, ice cream, puddings, custards, milkshakes. -nuts and seeds make a healthy option for snacks. -roasted channas and peanuts are good -peanut butter on the sandwiches are a great mid-meal choice. -you must know that cereals actually contain some healthy calories. Stay hydrated: drinking plenty of water and other fluids like juices, milk, soups etc, will work in your favour. Do not drink water before a meal and in between the meal as it may make you lose your appetite, thus calorie intake suffers. Sleep: at least 8 hours of sound sleep is a must. Since your body is actually building up muscles, while you rest. Weight gainers have long term side effects.

How can a healthy person get rid of getting diabetes mellitus by taking even correct balanced diet.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
How can a healthy person get rid of getting diabetes mellitus by taking even correct balanced diet.
Mr. Lybrate-user, t2 dm is a familial disease, meaning if parents have then children are most likely to get it. But even otherwise, one can get it, mainly due to overweight, inactivity and uncontrolled consumption of too much sweets and junk foods. Hence, if one wants to remain free from diabetes, then adapting a modified lifestyle is very essential. Modified life style means: regular exercise for more than 1 h a day, maintaining weight near normal (ideal body weight = height in cms - 100 x 0.9 = kgs), taking a balanced and restricted diet, giving necessary amount of calories based on ibw and amount of daily exercise. Plus stay away from alcohol and smoking.

What causes hashimoto thyroiditis and. What is he best method of treatment? Can iodine helps this condition?

PDDM, MHA, MBBS
General Physician, Nashik
Hashimoto's thyroiditis is an autoimmune disease, a disorder in which the immune system turns against the body's own tissues. In people with hashimoto's, the immune system attacks the thyroid. This can lead to hypothyroidism, a condition in which the thyroid does not make enough hormones for the body's needs. There is no cure for hashimoto's, but replacing hormones with medication can regulate hormone levels and restore your normal metabolism. Yes, iodine may help.

How to control the sugar and how to remove it and it will be necessary to checkup monthly or not?

CDIABT, MBBS
Endocrinologist, Mumbai
How to control the sugar and how to remove it and it will be necessary to checkup monthly or not?
For diabetes follow a diet low in carbohydrate, low in fat and high in fibre. Avoid bakery products. Avoid too much rice and potato. Avoid fried stuff. Avoid chocolate, cakes, ice cream, soft drinks and fruit juices. Eat lots of vegetables. Walk for at least 30 minutes a day for 5 days in a week. Medicine will work better if you follow diet and exercise. Diabetes you cannot remove it, you can only control it. It is always better if you check your blood sugar every month.

Mr. Lybrate-user, it appears the dosage of insulin is not adequate, needs to be uptitrated. This can be done by first targeting fasting sugar level and later pp sugar level. Night time insulin dose can be increased by 2 to 4 units every 3 rd day based on fasting glucose level till target level is achieved, through a system of self monitoring and getting info from your doctor on insulin dose, till a trget level (120 mg fasting) is reached. I do not understand the reason for starting dionil now, because it is not suitable in old age as it can precipitate severe hypoglycemia. Dionil or glimepiride push pancreas beta cells to produce insulin, but if there is no reserve of beta cells then these drugs have no action at all.

Mr. Lybrate-user, if you are maintaining blood sugar levels in good control, then you can definitely start any exercise which you like. Swimming is good, it will help in burning a good amount of calories. Hence, it will also help controlling blood sugar. Exercises like walking, jogging, aerobics and running all are good. But which one to take up depends on ones ability. Thanks.
