Hello doctor my father was suffering sugar problem last two years what should I do his age 53.

Mr. Lybrate-user, I am sure he is already on appropriate treatment, that should be continued. Strive to maintain fasting sugar closer to 100 mg and pp between 150 to 160 mg/100ml.& hba1c%<7. These levels will help in preventing or delaying long term complications of diabetes mellitus. Otherwise, consequences can be fairly bad. Apart from regular medication he should also take a restricted but balanced diet, that gives exact calories matching needs based on ideal body weight, sugar levels and extent of daily physical activity. Daily exercise of 1 hour plus is a must. He should avoid sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods and pastries. Should also refrain from alcohol, sweetened aerated drinks and smoking. Also avoid ghee, butter and high fat milk products like cheese.

Is there any test to be done to confirm type one or type 2 diabetes. My diabetologist is confusing me a lot on that and charging very high every time I visit his clinic.

MBBS

For type-1 diabetes diagnosis- blood test for auto antibody which destroys beta cell of pancreas, presence of ketone in blood for type @ diabetes do blood sugar (fasting and post prandial testing,), hba1c (glycosulated hemoglobin) testing consult diabetologist/physician with report for advice and treatment.

She is diabetic patient using tablets sugar undercontrol but oftentimes loosemoition any solution for stopping.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology

Mr. Lybrate-user, in diabetes some times gastrointestinal symptoms keep occurring. Patient may get frequent or loose motions or constipation on and often. This can not easily prevented. But proper diet, regular bowel habits and regular exercise can help. Sometimes uncontrolled hyperglycemia also affects gastrointestinal function and normal peristalsis. When blood glucose is in control fbs should be closer to 100 mg, pp 150 to 160 mg & hba1c% <6.8. Occasionally drugs may be useful like loparamide to stop loose motions. Thanks.

Do regular exercise or yoga to get rid of tension. Tension also increases weight in some cases as people go for binge eating during tension .get your thyroid test done to clear any doubt.

I am diabetic from last 5 yrs. My fasting result is between 100-118 average and pp is 150-200 average. I am taking jalra m 50/1000 in the morning after breakfast and 50/500 after dinner. I suffer a lots from uric acid and leg pain. And so recently my physician have prescribed me furic 40. Please provide me a international prescribed proper diet. At one time I was taking insulin human mixtard 30/70 as I was suffering from infection in my operated knee as the blood level was high for one month. There is myth that taking sugar control pills lead to kidney damage in future. Is it true? And taking insulin prevents kidney damage. please clarify.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Mr. Lybrate-user mustafa, the glucose levels mentioned look fairly good. Ideally fasting should be closer to 100 mg (as it is now), pp should be 150 to 160 mg and hba1c%<7 (ideally <6.8%). Your sugar control can be improved by diet and exercise to the required ideal level. As regards the exact diet, it has to be very specific and individualised, based on present dietary practice, sugar levels, extent of daily exercise and present dietary pattern. So I prescribe the same if you supply all those details. In the mean time I am giving general guide lines as to which foods to be taken or avoided. Avoid sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries, sweetened aerated drinks, red meat, high fat milk products, fructose corn syrup containing products and highly processed foods. Refrain from alcohol and smoking completely. Consume more of green leafy vegetables & salads, permitted fruits (100 g a day). Use whole grain products and whole grain flour for chapati and roti, no maida. Your diet should give calories based on ideal body weight, exercise and sugar levels. Regards.

I have undergone blood sugar test and fbs is 190 and my. Ppbs showing 223 mg/dl. My age is 24 year. What would be the treatment option. And my parents are diabetic.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Your blood sugar levels clearly show that you have developed t2dm, at a much earlier age. It would be better if you start treatment with insulin for first few months and control it better, later you can be shifted on to oral anti diabetics. The reason I am saying this is the glucotoxicity that harms the beta cells of pancreas can be better controlled and there is good possibility that beta cell activity revives rapidly with this treatment. Later insulin can be withdrawn and oral drugs can be substituted. Because of your younger age you have to be very careful in getting the sugar levels in good control. For any help you are welcome to ask me.

I tested my diabetes it was 220 after lunch. Can I take sugar free table for sweetness in sweet dishes.

MD - Diabetology, Membership of the Royal College of Surgeons (MRCS), MBBS
Endocrinologist, Kochi
Yes, sugar free tablets are quite safe in limited quantities. You may add them in your coffee/tea/prepared beverages. However, cooking after adding them is NOT always safe... especially, baking. Some of these artficial sweeteners are unstable at high temperatures. Beware.

I'm from Andhra Pradesh and very much interested in rice consumption both in my lunch and dinner. Can I continue the same food or change my diet? I'm now nearing 60 years. Please advise me.

You should go for walk in the morning. Do little bit exercise. Diet should be based on ideal body weight, sugar level, extent of daily physical exercise, and you should avoid sweet, sugar, deepfried foods, junk foods, pastries, acrtated drink, fructose corn syrup containing products, highly processed foods, complex carbohydrates and fibre should be included in diet. You should avoid fasting and feasting. Use sufficient amount of ginger, onion, garlic, coriander, lemon, greenchilli, black paper, fenugreekseeds, cinnamon, bay leaves, in food iteams. Except fruit juice you should eat complete fruit because it contain fibers which is good for a diabetic.

I am using thyronorm 125 mg one tablet every day since 2011. Right now all things are going well. My question is whether I have to continue or what to do please suggest.

MBBS, DNB (General Medicine)
Endocrinologist, Delhi
If your tsh is within range after taking 100 mcg of thyronorm every day then that's all that you need to continuously do. Thyroid hormone deficiency is tackled by proving this hormone in tablet form to the patient every day. Since you are already controlled with a set dose - you just have to continue this good habit.

I am a diabetic since 20 years. My sugar control is OK 160. Since 1 year I am also suffering with neuropathy means burning sensation in the foot. Whom should I consult weather podiatrist or neuro physician? Help me advise. Using pregabalin tablets also.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. For diabetic neuropathy, your physician who is helping ic controlling blood glucose is good enough. If you are already on Pragabalin, then that happens to be the medicine most often used to reduce neuropatic pain. Most important is to have an excellent blood glucose control with fasting <100 mg, PP 150 to 160 mg & HbA1c%<7. If you want any help I may be able do the same if you come in a private consultation. Thanks.
