Having sugarcane juice will increase your blood sugar. Having it once in a while is ok, provided you check your sugar after having it. If your sugar are very high than you should reduced the quantity of sugarcane juice.

Mr. Lybrate-user, if one has well controlled diabetes then fasting sugar should be closer to 100mg and pp should be 150 to 160 mg/100 ml and hba1c% <7. If you have maintained these readings consistently then diabetes is in control. With that one is able to prevent or postpone the long term complications of diabetes, which are very serious. You have not given all the details to give any suggestions. Plus there is no mention about fasting, pp sugar levels, hba1c%, dietary pattern and extent of daily exercise. Without these details it is difficult to give any suggestions. As regards the combination drug that you are taking, voglibose in that is supposed to be taken with the food. Glimepiride before food and metformin is ideally after food but can be taken earlier too. I prefer to give voglibose separately along with food.

My mother, aged 62, having diabetes since 10 yrs, is taking (dibizide-m 4pills a day) &(zita-met a day) although her dibetes can't be controlled it remains-fasting-180-& post-155. Hope giving advice to control it ?

Dear, a proper measure for knowing and managing mothers diabetes will be to ensure a hba1c below 6.5%. She is on lot of medications already. Regarding diet, we indians have high carbohydrate diet. You have to closely observe your plate and you can come up with a better diet plan for her. To simplify it, identify the items which are carb rich in your plate and try to compensate the same with protein and fibres, for eg cut down a roti and increase sabji, dal or salad. To have a better control you can do a monthly self glucose monitoring 3 times a day and keep a track of your food with it. Check fasting sugar, sugar one hour prior your lunch and 2 hrs post lunch, and note down the details of your breakfast and lunch items. Modify as per my earlier suggestions and within a week you will see your blood sugar level responding. Best of luck.

Hi, You seem to be having mild side effects of Thyronorm. Most of these side effects will settle down within the first week. You can continue to take the tablet for the next week and see if your symptoms settle or not. If your symptoms DO NOT settle down or if your symptoms INCREASE over next couple of days you can stop the tablet and consult your doctor again. Hope this helps you. Thank you.

Sir / Madam, My brother 56 years, He is a diabetic and under guidance and supervision of Dr. Dinesh Neopane, MBBS, MD at Biratnagar (Nepal. However, from past one and half year it is observed that his hemoglobin count gets reduced drastically in short span of time. This issue though has been addressed but we would like to get an expert opinion for better solution. At earlier stage doctor did assumed that it could be due to piles problem and with few units of blood transfusion patient was better. This result though was short lived and after five months again blood transfusion was done. On the recommendation of consulting doctor we met Nephrologist and his views were in sync with family doctor and advice was to continue the same medicine. Later, the patients started feeling week and under consultation of the doctor an injection EPOFIT (erythropoietin) was used twice weekly for six weeks. At that period the patient's hemoglobin count was below 6. Currently report shows that prescribed injection is working fine and patients has show improvement but we family members would like to take an expert review at your recommendation or reference is required as which doctor would be seeking appointment with. Looking forward for your early reply.

Diabetes May Cause Depression, Depression Can Cause Diabetes

MBBS, DNB (General Medicine)
Endocrinologist, Delhi
Diabetes May Cause Depression, Depression Can Cause Diabetes

Diabetes is a state where the body suffers from lack of energy due to poor metabolic state. This is construed as depression in many patients as they already feel lethargic and subdued. The fatigued state of body in diabetes can be alleviated by exercise which raises endorphins - substances which are released in the body especially by exercise - providing us the necessary elation so much necessary for our recovery

Managing diabetes may make a person feel alone and set apart from their friends and family due to the number of dietary restrictions they need to follow. Additionally, if the person has trouble controlling their blood sugar level, it may make him frustrated and anxious. Over time, these negative emotions can build up into depression.

Depression can make a person lose his sense of purpose and can make regular tasks feel like too much to handle. Thus, a depressed person may stop taking care of himself. The lack of energy can lead to a loss of appetite or unhealthy snacking. This can trigger fluctuations in blood sugar levels that worsen diabetes.

Thus, depression and diabetes have a cyclic relationship. The good news is that these two diseases can be treated together and managing one of these diseases can have a positive effect on the other as well.

Here are a few ways to treat diabetes and depression:

  1. Regular Exercise: Regular exercise is very beneficial towards treating, both depression and diabetes. Exercise helps regulate blood sugar levels and hence can help control diabetes. It also helps in reducing excess weight, which can enhance your self image and make you feel happier. Simultaneously, it also releases endorphins or the 'feel good' brain chemical. This can help alleviate depression symptoms.
  2. A Balanced Diet: A balanced diet is essential for good health and can help manage, both these disorders. Along with a balanced diet, there is also a need to abstain from snacking between meals. Reducing the amount of sugar in your meals helps stabilize blood sugar level and control fluctuations. Stable blood sugar level keep a person from becoming increasingly anxious and can thus prevent depression.
  3. Restful Sleep: A good night's sleep can treat, both diabetes and depression. If you have proper sleep, you will awake feeling refreshed and energetic. This positive energy balances the negativity of depression, lowers the urge to snack and helps in stabilizing blood sugar level.
  4. Psychotherapy: Psychotherapy or in particular cognitive behavioral therapy has been proven beneficial towards treating depression. This in turn gives a person the motivation needed to manage his diabetes as well.

Mr Ramkrishna, I am sure you are aware that diabetes mellitus and Hypertension are two conditions which can only be controlled. There is no permanent cure or solution. Treatment with specific drugs and suggested life style changes have to be adhered to all the while. Similarly for reducing cholesterol or correcting dyslipidemia appropriate drugs with diet control and exercise also are equally important. To give any suggestions I need to know present fasting and PP sugar levels, HbA1c%, diet pattern, extent of exercise, height and weight. Based on those details I will be able to give some guidelines. It will be better if you come in a private conversation where I will be able to give specific suggestions.

I am 47 years old woman. I am suffering with thyroid, diabetics, bp. Give me few suggestions for all these.
If you are on treatment for all three conditions, then to say you are in control following levels should be achieved: fasting glucose near 100 mg, pp 150 to 160 mg & hba1c%<7. Bp<130/80 mm hg, tsh between 3 to 4 milli units /ml. Plus exercise regularly which is helpful in all three conditions. Diet restriction and salt restriction also is important. Consuming of green leafy vegetables and salads is very necessary.

Dear doctor my mother is thyroid patient and her TSH Level is 6.5 (normal range is. 5-4.7) last checked on 11/3/16 she is taking 50 mcg thyronorm everyday and 100 mcg once in a week. Her age is 52, weight is 53 kg and heightbus 5.1 inches. Kindly suggest the dose she needs to change as after taking medicine her tsh level shoots up? Thanks in advance.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
when on treatment tsh levels should be around 3 to 4 milli units/ml, then only hypothyroidism is said to be in control. Hence 6.5 milli units is a high level. This has to be brought down to above mentioned figure. For that dose of thyroxine has to go up. I think I had asked you to give the tsh levels when the treatment was started or when diagnosis was made. Aslo her t4 levels then as well as body weight. Because it appears initial dosage being given is inadequate. So she needs to take more of thyroxine than the present dose.

What is the difference between both?
Lybrate-user, t1 diabetes is an autoimmune disease, where there are antibodies seen which destroy insulin producing cells, this leads to total deficiency of insulin. Person needs insulin for treatment and for survival. Usually ocurs in much younger age. Earlier called as juvenile diabetes. T2 is due to either lack of insulin or resistance to its action or both. This is seen in people with over weight and who are very inactive. It can be treated by oral anti diabetes drugs alone or even insulin. Some times both are used together. Dietary control and regular exercise also are required for better control. Plus this is seen spreading with in the families. But also is preventable if modified lifestyle is adapted.

Since he has already suffered from pancreatitis and half of the pancreas is already removed, he should stop taking alcohol totally other wise he will have serious problem. Let him attend alcoholic anonymous programme near to your locality, where they conduct various counselling sessions with a group of alcoholic to get rid of alcohol. Many people have benefited by attending the programme. Consult physician for further advice.

Normal thyroid-stimulating hormone level during pregnancy is lower than the normal nonpregnancy level. The new recommendations for tsh levels during pregnancy are the following: first trimester: less than 2.5 with a range of 0.1-2.5 second trimester: 0.2-3.0 third trimester: 0.3-3.0. As your t4 level is normal, no treatment is needed for you regarding thyroid.
