Have courage. Modern medical science has made great strides in management of diabetes. There is no known scientific cure as on today. But with proper diet as advised by treating doctor, daily light exercise like walking, swimming sports etc and proper medication as advised followed by repeated monitoring, regular review by your doctor will help in good control this way you can avoid or postpone the usual complications of diabetes. Keep increasing your health education and knowledge about diabetes by all possible means. Keep away from short cuts and unscientific remedies. Best wishes.

Avoid sitting cross legged. Avoid squatting- quadriceps exercises- lie straight, make a towel role and put it under the knee, press the keen against the role, hold it for 20 secs. Repeat 20 times twice a day. This will help relieve some pain. Core strengthening exercise- straight leg raised with toes turned outward, repeat 10 times, twice a day.

Hello doctor. My dad is a diabetic patient can he drink red wine? please suggest me.
Hi. Thanks for the query. There are no benefits of drinking wine. The specific nutrient benefit can be got from other healthy foods a s well. Remember you can end up with troubled blood sugar levels if not taken in the right amounts. Even if had it has to be planned into a diabetic diet. Will not advise random intake.

If the medicines you take for controlling your diabetes are working, then your blood sugar levels will always be in range. That is the most accurate way of knowing

My doctor says my dose is high because insulin resistance. My body creates anti bodies to destroy the insulin.

In t2dm there are no antibodies produced against insulin, it is the insulin resistance that is the culprit along with improper production of insulin by beta cells of pancreas. You might a drug like metformin 500 mg twice a day in addition to insulin which would reduce insulin resistance and help insulin action. Plus your strict diet and exercising for more than 1 h a day should continue.

Addison's Disease - 4 Causes Behind It

Diploma in Diabetology, P.G. Diploma in Health Science (Diabetology), Certificate Course in Evidence based Diabetes Management -, MBBS
Endocrinologist, Thane
Addison's Disease - 4 Causes Behind It

Addison’s disease is a disorder caused due to significant damage in the adrenal cortex (located alongside the adrenal gland’s perimeter that helps mediate stress reaction), which leads to a deficiency in the secretion of the hormones ‘aldosterone’ (that regulates the sodium and potassium level of the body), ‘androgen’ and ‘cortisol’ (which control the body’s reaction in situations of intense pressure) by the adrenal glands.

Causes
There are generally two stages of Addison’s disease. The causes vary according to the stages:

In the primary stage of the disorder, the body’s immune system attacks the adrenal cortex and significantly damages it.

Other significant causes are as follows:

  • This might occur as a result of the development of tumors and cancerous cells in the body
  • Resulting from certain infections
  • Long-term usage of glucocorticoids (inflammation reducing steroids) might result in the primary adrenal insufficiency
  • This might also be caused due to tuberculosis or severe bleeding in the adrenal glands.

Risk Factors

If you’re suffering from any one of the following complications, your chances of contracting Addison’s disease increase significantly:

  • Cancer or if you have undergone any surgery to remove parts of the adrenal gland
  • Tuberculosis or diabetes.
  • Frequent usage of coagulants

Treatments
The treatment of Addison’s disease varies according to the cause of the disorder.
The most common treatments for the disorder include:

  • A prescribed dosage of glucocorticoids might be recommended
  • Replacement of the hormones that the adrenal glands are unable to produce: Cortisone acetate or prednisone might be used in order to replace the ‘cortisol’ hormone.
  • Meditation or other relaxing techniques to ease excessive stress levels or manage any trauma that you have been through.

I have diabetics and cholesterol so how do I keep my self feet and healthy? What should I eat?
Mr. Lybrate-user, if you have confirmed diabetes then it is essential to start appropriate treatment with suitable drugs. Plus take a balanced but restricted diet, that gives exact calories based on ideal body weight, blood sugar levels and extent of daily exercise. As regards eating following points should be kept in mind: avoid sweets completely, avoid deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries, sweetened aerated drinks, high fat milk products and highly processed food products. Exercise daily for at least 1 hour, that will increase your fitness and give better sugar control. When in good control fasting sugar should be around 100 mg and pp 150 to 160 mg and hba1c% <7. If you achieve this you will definitely feel healthy and fit. With regards.
