I am a 65 years old female. I am a diabetic patient but the sugar is under control. I suffer from kidney (urine) infection for the past 3 years. Despite several allopatic medicines the infection is not subsiding. The infection is caused by e-coli bacteria. Kindly prescribe the right medicine.

MBBS, DGO (cal)
General Physician,
Diabetics are prone to different systemic and local infection. Female are very prone to urinary tract infection, which turns to be a chronic one due to negligence or ignorance in the part of patient who do not comply with medical advice. Once it become recurring infection it becomes very problematic but not impossible to cure such condition. What you need is to talk to a urologist / nephrologist for following: a) to assess kidney function, b) to find out whether there is any persistent infection and if yes, causative organism and its drug sensitivity. C) then treat the condition with appropriate medicine for at least 2 - 3 weeks. D) and follow-up treatment for a prolonged period, at least for 3 - 6 months (may be more) to prevent infection. E) side by side good blood sugar control is to be achieved. This part is your diabetologist's job. So, hope you could understand. Please do as I said.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Glucose levels mentioned clearly show that current treatment is inadequate. You are mentioning that Cetapin Xr 500 mg is being taken twice a day. But the information given below talks about Tab Glycomet GP 2 forte and Glycomet GP 1 forte. Which info is correct? In any case glucose levels are not in control. What is Hba1c%? There is a need for upgrading the treatment. Ideally fasting glucose should be < 100 mg, PP 150 to 170 mg HbA1c% < 7. So please get in touch with your diabetologist and get the necessary changes for your treatment. In this communication we can only give general guidelines. No drugs can be prescribed. If you are keen on online help, please come in a private conversation with all details, plus dietary pattern, extent of daily exercise, then I will be able to give specific guidance. Looking at your weight and height, the ideal body weight at your age should be 72 kgs. Extra weight also contributes to excess glucose. Thanks.

Mr. lybrate-user, if you take eggs regularly then that is one of the best types of protein that can be taken particularly in diabetes. Most protein supplements contain fair amount of carbs and also fat, but egg white is pure protein (albumen) and is the best type of p Thanks. Rotein containing all the essential amino acids.

Thanks for the query. For a person with diabetes it very important to first and foremost achieve a strict blood glucose control, with FBG <100 mg, PP 159 to 160 mg & HbA1c% <6.8. Then have a very controlled diet that provides calories based on ideal body weight, and extent of exercise. Eggs are a good source of protein and can be taken by a person with diabetes. You can consume the whole egg. There is no need to discard egg yolk. Thanks.

Mr. lybrate-user, thanks for the query. Your blood glucose levels look fairly good. (PP ideally should be <170 mg). What is the HbA1c%? It should be < 6.8. Usually when diabetes continues for a number of years, it does cause peripheral neuropathy. This can lead to burning sensation in the feet or tingling and numbness also. Most important is to maintain a strict blood glucose control and see that no injury occurs to the feet. Because in some people due to severe neuropathy there may be lack of sensation in the feet, and injuries are not noticed. Then there is a serious problem. Presently there is no such issue with you. Do not worry unnecessarily. Thanks.

Living With Diabetes - Diet, Lifestyle and Foot Care Changes You Must Ensure

Living With Diabetes - Diet, Lifestyle and Foot Care Changes You Must Ensure

Diabetes has become a modern lifestyle disease. Younger age groups are affected by it, and with changing lifestyles, it is only poised to get worse. While this may sound scary, the news to cheer about is that it can be controlled to a large extent. By making lifestyle changes, altering diet, and improving foot care, diabetes control can be planned effectively. Both the onset of the disease and disease progression and complications can be controlled to a large extent.

Read on to know some changes in terms of lifestyle, diet and foot care to improve diabetes:

  1. Diet: You are what you eat, so it is advisable that you plan your meal carefully. Eat healthy and you will stay healthy. Include a lot of fiber in the form of whole grains, fresh fruits and vegetables. Reduce oils, sugar, salt, white rice, refined flour, etc. Increase unsaturated fatty acids and reduce saturated fatty acids. Ensure you get the right amount of antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals. Ensure ample hydration for the body. Get into a pattern of eating small, frequent meals and avoid binge eating. This goes a long way in controlling sugar levels in the body.
  2. Lifestyle: Engage in exercise, both to keep your weight under control and to improve the function of insulin. This also helps to keep body fat under control. Talk to your doctor about what routine would work for you. Whether it is jogging, running, cycling, swimming or plain walking, take a pick and regularly do it. Your goal should be to spend 30 to 45 mins every day on brisk walking (at least 5 days a week). This helps the function of insulin and also helps in reducing complications arising from diabetes. If you are a smoker, this is the time to quit – the hazards and the benefits are way too many. A healthy lifestyle with exercise also helps to manage stress, as the exercise helps in stress management and weight management too. Reduced severity of diabetes induces a feeling of well-being too.
  3. Foot care: One of the main complications of diabetes is known as diabetic neuropathy, where the nerves are affected. There is loss of sensation in the extremities and therefore a blister or a corn on the foot can go unnoticed and continue to grow. This may develop into an ulcer, which may then require extensive repair and heal at a slow pace because of diabetes. Diabetic people are advised to watch and wash the feet regularly, dry it nicely, watch between the toes, keep the toenails trimmed, smoothen out the calluses and corns, and use proper footwear. Go for foot exams once in six months or a year. Any small wound should be attended to by the doctor.

These are some simple ways to combat diabetes, which can be planned into your daily routine. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a General Physician.

How is diabetes caused? Is it caused by eating sugar or fat? Can eating several small meals a day trigger diabetes?

How is diabetes caused? Is it caused by eating sugar or fat?
Can eating several small meals a day trigger diabetes?
Diabetes happens because your body is not able to utilise sugar properly. The reason could be a deficiency of Insulin or a resistance of body tissues to the action of Insulin. Usually, both exist in varying degrees. Diabetes does NOT directly happen because of eating sugar or fat. Eating several smaller meals a day is definitely better than 2-3 very large ones. And that alone doesn't cause diabetes.
