I am 21 year old I m having diabetes since 3 years I intake a insuline 3 tym in a day my question is if I have eaten a more sweet after taking insulin at noon and then my sugar goes at 300 or more. So can I intake again a insuline 4th tym. To control diabetes or take insuline direct a night?

MD , MBBS
General Physician, Aligarh
Dear . let me clarify you that diabetes is a silent killer if not taken precautions. Why the hell are you taking sweets. You are just 21 and you have a life ahead. 3 times insulin itself is 2 much. Haven't you tried medicine. Brother life is precious. Don't play with yourself.

Mr. Lybrate-user, according to diagnostic criteria if fasting is >126 mg it is considered diabetes. Similarly if pp is>200 mg it is diabetes. Between 141 to 199 mg it is pre diabetic state. So it looks like you are having prediabetes. This can be definitely be controlled by diet and exercise. If you really adapt the modified lifestyle with balanced and restricted diet and regular exercise, refraining form alcohol and smoking, avoiding junk foods and pastries, you can remain free from diabetes for a considerable time. With regards.

Can anyone please explain what is the meaning of hba1 level of diabetes patients.
Hba1c is glycosylated hemoglobin which indicates sugar levels over last 3 mths. Whereas fasting, post prandial sugar tests give idea about levels on that particular day only.

My dad - 71 years - he had ptca done in 1997 and was also diagnosed with diabetes. Till aug 2014 it was all working well with minimal drugs - diabetes under control through diet etc and cholesterol levels quite normal. However, last year in aug-14, he had high fever and got unconscious (10-15 minutes)/fallen down on the way to bathroom and fractured his leg. He does not remember what happened. Got admitted and was administered with antibiotics (novosafe). Meanwhile got catheter inserted as he was not able to pass urine and/or move because of fractured leg. Got released from hospital after 6-7 days but soon after two days again got high fever again and fell unconscious again. Gave bit of sugar and took to hospital - he felt much better by the time he reached to hospital and wsa hospitalized. Doctors suspected uti and diagnosed hypoglycemia. After that he had high fever 2 times and novosafe, piptaz courses for 6-7 days each time worked. Doctor suggested urine culture this jan 2015 and" susceptible to colistin" was found. We got 10 day course of colistin followed by 1 month course of niftas. He did not get high fever of 4-5 days after that. However got fever 5-6 times -- 100-101 degree - for a day or two with normal antibiotics gets over. Each time normal urine test showed few puss cells and couple of times off late not even those. Urine test was quite normal. We observed that high fever occurred after some physical exertion earlier 3-4 times but later 5-6 times after colistin course no such co-relation and got urine test done and puss cells were found very low/none. Usg and uriflowmetry was done in may-15 and not found any issues except that prostate slightly enlarged (which was noticed even in usg in aug 14) and for which doctor advised not to do any procedure except have tamdura (1 at bed time for 2 months) and take nurokind (1 every day for two months). Urologist does not think its recurrent uti case at least anymore. Diabetologist does not think its due to diabetes. Heart specialist also thinks nothing wrong there as lipid profile and color doppler showed normal. However, fever has been repeating every 15-20 days though puss cells are not found now. Every time he gets bit unconscious (5-10 minutes) - starts with some fever. Heavy eys. Getting unconscious. Expert suggested to consult now neuro-physician and cardiologist after usg and carotid doppler tests. Also, another expert doctor suggested it may be yers of diabetes causing the same. However, he suggested urine culture with sensitivity analysis including test for suspected fungiurea and atypical mycobacterial uti to rule out its uti. Not sure what to do (tried to keep it as brief and can give more details).

Hello Sir, Madam Please Tell Me How Tow control sugar problem.

Certified Diabetes Educator, Registered Dietitian (RD), PGDD, Bachelor of Unani Medicine and Surgery (B.U.M.S), General Physician
Dietitian/Nutritionist,
Hello Sir, Madam Please Tell Me How Tow control sugar problem.
Do let me know your hba1c value? also you need to provide me your daily food intake details. There are many lifestyle and dietary guidelines that can be followed: take high fiber prescribed diet which includes soluble fibre like apple, isabgol etc. Get more physical activity. eat a balanced diet which includes whole grains and excludes all refined products like maida as prescribed. if you're overweight, diabetes prevention may hinge on weight loss. Every pound you lose can improve your health, and you may be surprised by how much. Participants in one large study who lost a modest amount of weight around 7 percent of initial body weight and exercised regularly reduced the risk of developing diabetes by almost 60 percent.

This will considerably improve your metabolic activity and helps reducing your weight. 3- Split your meals and eating in moderate amount:-Splitting your meals into 3-4 times per day (including snacks)and eating in fair and consistent amount , improves your metabolic rate as the food u take is not concentrated at one time. 4- No long Gaps and skipping of meals:-There should be no long gaps between meals. Never miss out breakfast. 5- No overeating:-Never eat in a bulk on one time .Try to have moderate amount of food each time u eat. It will help maintain your blood sugar at a healthy level and won’t let it to fluctuate. Remember to eat your food slowly, chew well. 6- Proper Exercise and work outs:-Exercise is very important and a fast way to trim down calories, extra weight and controlling glucose level. Brisk walking for 30 min. atleast five times a week is the best and easiest way of exercising. You can also try Cycling, swimming, dancing. Timings for exercise should be fixed and regular. Avoid heavy exercise. Do not eat right away after a workout . 7-constant and regular timings for medication 8-Avoid fried foods and meat: Limit fats and sweets. Rather choose a variety of foods including whole grains, fresh vegetables, salads, fruits, low fat dairy products. 9- Take high-fibre and complex carbohydrates:-like oats as they are easily broken down to basic sugars. Add whole grain foods in your diet. Avoid carbohydrates like white bread, pasta, pizza , candies, and snacks .Instead include high-fiber carbohydrates like wheat bran, flaxseed and methi seeds to your wheat flour. This will increase fibre in your diet. 10-Drink enough fluids:-Keep your body well hydrated. Drink a lot of water that will help flush the toxins off your system. 11.Fresh vegetables and fruits:- gives essential benefits as these contain a lot of vital minerals as well as nutrients .Include sprouts in the diet as they are easily digestible and a rich source of nutrients. 12- Avoid excess salt:-in form of pickles/papads etc. 1 tsp(5 gm)is sufficient for a healthy hypertensive individual. 13-Avoid alcohol consumption:-Alcohols such as beer and wine contains large amount of calories. choose sugar-free drink. 14- dairy products :-Dairy products are high on fat content such as cheese, curd, milk etc. So instead consume skimmed milk products , low fat cheese, yogurt (curd) etc. Do not have more than two cups of tea or coffee every day. Try green tea instead.

I am 58 years old, male, with Schizophrenia since 10 years. At the present moment, I am put on Amisant 200 mg 0-0-1 and Sizopin 100 mg 0-0-1. I intend to replace Amisant with Sizodon plus 0-0-1, because, I have positive symptoms of Schizophrenia, like hallucinations etc, where Amisant is found wanting. I will take this decision only after consulting my psychiatrist, whom I am meeting on Monday next. Kindly remember that I am not taking independent decisions and i am not self-medicating myself. In the mean time, kindly advice whether the combination of Sizodon plus and Sizopin relieve both positive and negative symptoms of Schizophrenia?

Yes it can..see all meds target both positive and negative symptoms..respinse in terms of positive symptoms is better for all of them.Among meds sizopin and amisant are better than others.If you really want to improve negative symptoms you need more than meds and then also some deficits will always remain..Your new combination is fine but remember the combination of amisant and sizopin is among the best for negative symptoms.In the end goal is to take as few meds as possible..
