My father has insufficient vision in his eyes, when consult with doctor, he said blood bleed in his eye nerves. He is having sugar and bp.

Hello lybrate-user. Sorry about your father's eye problem. Diabetes and blood pressure are disorders of the blood vessels. They tend to affect most of the organs in the body including the eyes. In the eye, diabetes/ blood pressure may lead to bursting of blood vessels and subsequent bleeding into the eye. This would in turn reduce the vision of the eye. In some cases, it could be improved by surgery or injection in the eye whereas in other cases, it would be irreversible. Thus, the best guide would be a retina specialist. Take the opinion and follow the advice given by the retina specialist. Feel free to contact me for further assistance. Hope my suggestions helped you. Take care-

The diagnosis of Diabetes if based on Fasting Blood Sugar level of 126 mg/dl or more. But this test has to be done on two separate occasions to validate the diagnosis of Diabetes.

TB is an important cause of infertility in India. You must get a thorough gynecological evaluation including USG abdomen, Hysterosalpingography, menstrual blood testing etc. Treatment is same as for pulmonary TB and highly effective.

What are the various tests that a t2 diabetic should do on a regular basis and what is the timeframe to be followed? this is for my mother who is on bedtime tresiba (8 units ave.) and also takes galvusmet 500/50 mg twice daily and amaryl 2mg twice daily.

First thing is to decide whether your sugar levels are controlled (within range) or not. - means that sugar fasting, post prandial should all be within normal range. This needs to be supplemented by hbaic test - done 3 monthly, to check preceding sugar levels. Again a baseline lft, kidney panel are a must and based on abnormal parameters in these tests, further course to be decided.

Which sugar level can affect diabetic complications in long term or short term in diabetic patients.
Fasting sugar level above 126 and PPBS level above 200 And HbA1c level more than 6.5% can lead to long term complications.

Dear lybrate user, one of the major nutritional substance required for human body is carbohydrate. We take carbohydrate in the form of rice, wheat, sugar etc. The complex molecules of carbohydrate are broken down into simple glucose molecules during digestion & released in the blood stream to be absorbed by the muscle cells. Muscle cells utilise the glucose molecules to release energy by breaking down those glucose molecules. Insulin hormone plays a vital role in the absorption of the glucose molecules by the muscle cells. In abnormal conditions, either due to less production of insulin or due to resistance to insulin, the process of absorption of glucose by the muscles comes to a stand still. The glucose molecules remains in the bloodstream which results in the increase in the blood sugar level. The failure of utilisation of the glucose molecules by the muscle cells results in production of less energy than normal condition. This is externally manifested as the fatigue & tiredness of the patient. This excess amount of blood sugar compels the kidney to function more than normal level in order to excrete the blood sugar molecules through urine. As a result the patient suffers from frequent urination. This abnormal condition is clinically known as diabetes mellitus. Once a patient is diagnosed with diabetes he has to take regular medicine to keep his blood sugar level within normal limits. However, the patient does not need to take medicine unless his/her post. Prandial blood sugar level reaches 200. If post. Prandial blood sugar level reaches 200 then patient can take homoeopathic mother tincture gymnema sylvestra q, 30 drops, thrice daily, after meals, in a cup of water. Along with intake of medicines the patient need to walk at least 1 hour daily without any interval. In order to decrease the intake of carbohydrate in diet the patient should avoid rice, sweet dishes, fruits, cold drinks, fast foods, alcoholic beverages, potato etc.

I am 60 yes male. Non diabetic. Dr. prescribed tonacttg tabs 1 per day. By mistake I have taken 1 in morning and 1 at night for 6 months. My sugar level gone up to 300 from 100 in 6 months. Is it due to this over dosage?

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. By taking Atorvastatin 2 tablets a day (20 mg per day), is unlikely to cause any such problem of increase in blood glucose. It is possible that you were earlier in a pre-diabetes state and that condition has now changed to overt diabetes. Please tell me the earlier Fasting, PP levels if you remember. In any case if present level is showing 300 mg, then it needs to be treated. So please check fasting, PP and HbA1c% and come back. Also inform details like your height, dietary pattern, extent of daily exercise. Also check the lipid profile. 300 mg (whether fasting or after food) is a very high glucose level, demanding urgent correction. Thanks.

I want to know that if a person have diabetes sugar then one can eat popcorn and corn?

Corn is a very rich source of starch (carbohydrate) starches raise the level of blood sugar. So it is advisable not to eat corn if diabetic. Once in a while it can come as a treat.
