Hi, I am a diabetic patient in its initial stage.
What should I do to prevent it from getting it severe?
Firstly you take your food with 2 to 3 hr intervals, devided into 3 main meals and 3 small meals. Main meals should consist of 1/4 portion of protein and 1/4 portion of carbohydrates and 2 portion of vegetables more or less at the same time of the day to make your biological clock perfect. Avoid high calorie food such as fried things, mango, banana, sapota, juices, sweets. Secondly do regular exercise, yoga or walk. Thirdly always take your medicine in time as advised by your doctor. Keep your self hydrated and take enough sleep.

You are more prone to get diabetes since you have a strong family history. But you can prevent or at least delay its onset by maintaining a healthy diet and lifestyle practices. So just review your weight and check if it is within the safe limits for your height. Ayurveda has the best of lifestyle guidelines which will surely help you.

There are 2 issues here. Either your Thyroid tablet dose is inadequate or if you are taking your Thyroid & calcium tablets together then it will reduce the effect of your Thyroid tablet. Make sure that your calcium is taken in the afternoon or evening so that it does not interfere with your Thyroid tablet absorption. This is also the case with iron. So make sure that all these tablets are taken at different times to avoid any interference in absorption.

General Physician,
Control of Diabetes is a is therapy done by a combined and serious team consisting of The Patient and the physician. Physician advises. Unless the recipient, I mean the patient seriously asks Physician is also can not give you the fullest. Its a psychological bond which is above all a professional advice only. Your uncontrolled diabetes may due to either your non compliance to the advice of physician or incompetent advice of the physician. I have no reason to believe the second part of the statement. I may believe at this juncture to stick to the following part and retest your BS fter 15 days. If you see any improvement, go back to your doctor and listen list him and follow his advice. If he is not giving your satisfactory attention, I know you know what to do. A patent always choose he physician not the physician choose his patient. He may love him with empathy. 1) Brisk Walking 5 Km daily - whether over weight or not, of course if it is not contraindicated by your treating physician. 2) Keep your Body Mass Index within 24 Kg / Meter Square of your body surface area, that is your healthy weight - by exercise and dietary management. 3) Diets - STOP the following - Sweet, Sugar, Potato, Fried substances, Starchy foods, Sweet drinks, Canned juices, Ice creams, Processed juice of any type. Butter, Cheese Avoid rice (if at all never more than one leveled Tea Plateful / day) Normal or high protein. Low fat. High fibre - Leafy vegetables + Vegetables (particularly less starchy and coloured one, which contains more antioxidants) 4) Meditation for 20 mins daily Hope its OK for the time being.

Diabulimia - Should You Be Worried About It?

Diabulimia - Should You Be Worried About It?

Diabulimia is an eating disorder often associated with Type-1 Diabetes. Also referred to as ED-DMT1, not many people are aware of this non-clinical term. It is a well known fact that many people with Type-1 diabetes require the daily administration of insulin. In the case of Diabulimia, a person having Type-1 diabetes purposely manipulates with the insulin dosage in an endeavour to lose weight. In some extreme cases, a person may completely avoid the use of insulin.

You need no rocket science to understand the impact diabulimia will have on a diabetic patient (Type-1) who is entirely dependent on insulin. Some of the lethal consequences of diabulimia include

  1. Yeast infections: Manipulating with the appropriate dosage of insulin can trigger an abnormal rise in the blood glucose level (Hyperglycemia), some of which gets eliminated out through the urine, thereby enabling a person to lose weight. However, the high glucose level is just the ideal and favorable condition for yeast growth. The hyperglycemic condition will result in increased yeast infections. The infection can be very uncomfortable and annoying. In fact, there will be repeated yeast infections until the blood glucose level comes down to the normal range.
  2. Ketoacidosis: As already mentioned, diabulimia devoids the body of insulin. As a result, glucose is unable to enter the body cells (glucose is an important fuel for the muscles and the other cells and tissues of the body). In its absence, the body starts looking for alternate sources. Gradually the body starts breaking down fats to get the desired energy. Increased breakdown of fats results in accumulation of ketone bodies in the bloodstream, a condition medically termed as Ketoacidosis or Diabetic Ketoacidosis. The condition if left untreated can be harmful triggering Cerebral Edema (a condition characterized by a swelling of the brain), Hypokalemia (low potassium level) or even Hypoglycemia.
  3. Diabetic retinopathy: Hyperglycemia can spell doom for your eyes. The accumulation and buildup of high levels of glucose in the eyes often damage the retinal blood vessels, a condition known as Diabetic Retinopathy. There may not be any early signs associated with the condition. However, diabetic retinopathy can give rise to many serious complications such as Glaucoma (characterized by severe damage to the optic nerve), Vitreous Hemorrhage (the blood leaks into the areas adjacent to the vitreous humor of the eye), or even Blindness. There may also be a Retinal Detachment.
  4. Renal failure: One of the common and harmful consequences of diabulimia is the kidney failure. Increased concentration of glucose in the kidneys often damages the filtration units of the kidneys called the Glomeruli (increased glucose blocks the capillaries of the kidney) leading to kidney damage and failure.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!
