I am a type 2 diabetic. For the last 10 yrs. Was on glycomet gp1 forte + valibo 0.3 till now. Another specialist has advised to use trajenta duo 2.5/500 + diamicron xr 60 mg. Is the to new medicine safer to use?

It is safe. The new medicine does not cause low sugar levels but it potentiates the effect of the other medicine. Hence, you should be careful to avoid low sugar levels.

Is chewing tobacco injurious for diabetic patient?

Is chewing tobacco injurious for diabetic patient?
Chewing tobacco is not only injurious to diabetic patient but for healthy persons also. I think there is no single benefit of tabacco chewing. For diabetic patient it may be more harmful. Tobacco chewing may cause fibrosis and slowly it may lead to cancer in the oral cavity.

I am an obese diabetic person. Can I start my day with lukewarm lemon honey water? My fasting sugar is 160.
According to Ayurveda mixing of honey with earn or hot stuffs is a contraindicated combination.. Such foods can give rise to severe metabolic dysfunction .. It is a misconception to take honey with warm water for weight loss .. Hence it is advised to avoid use of such combination and drink water to ur body's need and don't over load

Please see to it that you wear cotton socks. Trim your nails regularly wear sandal with straps comfortable sports shoes of reputed brands dry your feet after a wash or a bath. Take special care of areas in between the toes. (fungal infections are common) any cuts and wounds have to be attended by doctors. Most importantly keep sugars under control.

Hi Managing diabetes with insulin needs some education regarding how to adjust the insulin dose, about the type of insulin your taking, how to manage when the blood sugars are low or high and diet as well. You need a consultation to discuss the same. As of now it looks like her insulin dose is high. Please do not stop the insulin as the blood sugars are settling and if stopped can shoot up the blood sugars. The dose has to be adjusted gradually and may be stopped if she has repeated low blood sugars.

Dear Lybrate User, Protein is one of the most vital nutritional substances which are required for human body. Almost every high protein diet contains purine. This purine produces uric acid on oxidation. Excess uric acid is accumulated at the joints of human beings as urate salts. This accumulation of urate salts lead to pain & swelling of those affected joints & this condition is clinically known as gout. You should avoid high protein rich diet like mutton, chicken, beef, eggs, sea fish, spinach, garden pea, tomato, lentils etc. Also you need to take Homoeopathic Mother Tincture URTICA URENS Q, 30 drops, thrice daily, after meals, in a cup of water. This medicine will help to dissolve the accumulated excess urate salts from the joints.

Dear lybrate-user, its good to hear that your sugar levels are under control. As you might be aware that diabetes is a progressive disease. It affects gradually all the vital organs of our body if not kept under control in form of micro and macro vascular complications. As your urine - routine test shows presense of protein (known as proteinuria) and you said that your s. Creatinine was also high, I would suggest you to get a usg abdomen & pelvis done to know the cause of the same. Even it would be better if your lab reports can be reviewed as the necessary treatment can be initiated for the same. Thanks.

What food should be avoided in thyroid problem. please answer.

MD - Internal Medicine, MBBS
Endocrinologist,
What food should be avoided in thyroid problem. please answer.
Foods to Avoid Many common foods and supplements contain compounds that interfere with thyroid functions. In general, it’s best to avoid the following foods and supplements: Soy: Studies suggest that phytoestrogens in soybeans and soy-rich foods may inhibit the activity of an enzyme that makes the thyroid hormones. One study found that women who consumed soy supplements were three times more likely to develop hypothyroidism. Iodine-rich foods: Some forms of hypothyroidism are caused by a lack of sufficient iodine. In such cases, using iodized salt or iodine-enriched foods can be beneficial. But eating too much iodine can have the opposite effect and suppress thyroid gland activity. Check with your doctor before taking supplements. Iron and calcium supplements: Taking iron or calcium supplements can also change the effectiveness of many thyroid medications. High-fiber foods: Although a high-fiber diet is usually recommended, too much fiber may interfere with the absorption of thyroid medicines. Certain vegetables: Cruciferous vegetables that are rich in fiber like broccoli, cabbage, spinach, kale, and Brussels sprouts can inhibit thyroid drug absorption. Reducing the amounts of such produce in your diet may help. Caffeine, tobacco, and alcohol can also influence the effectiveness of thyroid medicine. Ask your doctor for tips on how to regulate or reduce your consumption.

Diabetic Diet Myths and Facts

Post Graduate Diploma in Holistic Healthcare, PG Diploma Clinical research, Diploma in Medical Writing, MSc Biotechnology
Dietitian/Nutritionist, Bangalore
Diabetic Diet Myths and Facts
MYTH: A high-protein diet is best.
Fact: Studies have shown that eating too much protein, especially animal protein, may actually cause insulin resistance, a key factor in diabetes. A healthy diet includes protein, carbohydrates, and fats. Our bodies need all three to function properly. The key is a balanced diet.

MYTH: You have to cut way down on carbs.
Fact: Again, the key is to eat a balanced diet. The serving size and the type of carbohydrates you eat are especially important. Focus on whole grain carbs since they are a good source of fiber and they are digested slowly, keeping blood sugar levels more even.

MYTH: You’ll no longer be able to eat normally. You need special diabetic meals.
Fact: The principles of healthy eating are the same—whether or not you’re trying to prevent or control diabetes. Expensive diabetic foods generally offer no special benefit. You can easily eat with your family and friends if you eat in moderation.

Sometimes people who are under weight gluformin (metformin) is not good choice if sugars are not under control or hba1c is persistently high. You should try and strictly follow diabetic diet (without direct sugar on day to day basis, oil restricted to 3 tsp daily- high fiber inform of vegetables fruits and sprouts) and regular minimum 45minutes exercise/walking/sports activity.
