Hello, Yes she can develop diabetes, just a few signs excessive thirst, hunger,tiredness, frequent urination and sometimes associated with unexplained weight loss are some common symptoms. However it is better to confirm by a sugar test after the approval of endocrinologist.

She doesn't need insulin at this stage. To control the blood sugar, she should avoid much sweets in food. Lower the amount of sugar in tea and other food items. Also, rice should be avoided. Eat more jamuns. They help in controlling diabetes.

I am type 1 insulin dependent diabetic taking injections every day for last 10 years. Recently I read about insulin pens which look less intimidating. How are they different from injections and are they better or worse?

There are many types of insulinis. Most of them are available in pen. If you are type 1, you would benefit from buying a permanent insulin pen. You would only have to change the cartridges when the insulin gets over inside. Most companies have helplines in place to assist taking of the injections.

For pregnancy to take place you require a normal ovulation ,regular cycles and normal sperm function of the male partner I hope all that has been tested Your Thyroid function as per the reports should not interfere in ovulation The TSH is low you should reduce the dose of Thyroxine in consultation with your physician / Endocrinologist.

Mr Paul, Erectile dysfunction is a common complication of long standing diabetes. One of the most important need is to have excellent blood sugar control (fasting <100 mg and PP<160 mg) and HbA1c%<6.8. Because if you have not been having strict control of blood sugars then micro vascular damage causes ED. So please give all the details like above and come in a private conversation where I will be able to give specific suggestions. In this communication we are supposed to give only gernrral guide lines.

Foods That Can Be Used To Reduce Blood Sugar Level

Foods That Can Be Used To Reduce Blood Sugar Level

High blood sugar occurs when the insulin in the body fails to metabolize the sugar from the food, which raises the amount of glucose in your blood. It is a metabolic disorder which can be managed effectively with the help of lifestyle modifications such as exercise and food. This article is going to focus on the foods that you can eat to lower your blood sugar levels.

Here are 9 foods that you can use to reduce blood sugar levels:

Cinnamon: cinnamon is a herb which is very effective in getting your blood sugar down to manageable levels. You can simply sprinkle cinnamon on your food before eating it.

Fenugreek (methi): fenugreek is a common spice which is used in almost all indian cuisines. It has a number of health benefits, one of which is reducing blood sugar levels. Soaking fenugreek in water and then drinking it the next day is a very effective remedy in combating sugar problems.

Garlic: not just for sending away the vampires, it is also very effective in blood sugar control. Extracts of garlic have been shown to increase insulin in the body which is required to metabolize the sugar in the body.

Heart healthy fats: heart healthy fat based foods such as nuts and seeds are good for increasing the good cholesterol levels (hdl) in the body. Avocadoes contain nutrients which lower the risks of various diseases such as diabetes. In a nutshell, these fats make the cells of the body less resistant to insulin.

Blueberries: blueberries contain anthocyanin (water soluble pigments) which is very good for your health. They also contain fiber in large amounts which make you feel fuller faster. This fruit has also been shown to improve insulin sensitivity in the body.

Vinegar: vinegar is an age old remedy to control blood sugar levels; it contains acetic acid which causes a reduction in certain harmful enzymes in the stomach. Vinegar is also known to prevent blood sugar spikes when consumed with food.

Complex carbohydrates: complex carbohydrates raise your blood sugar but not like its cousin, simple carbohydrates. Simple carbohydrates cause an immediate spike in your blood sugar levels where as complex carbs provide a steady stream of energy. So drop that packet of refined flour and get that whole wheat variant.

Cherries: cherries, especially tart cherries and dark sweet cherries, are full of anthrocyanins. Insulin resistance prevents insulin from working properly to control blood sugar in normal ranges. Eating a diet high in anthrocyanins can mean improved use of insulin and lower blood sugars.

Nuts: people who eat nuts regularly have lower rates of heart disease than people who don't eat them.

The situation needs detailed discussion. Valproate can cause problems with development of the baby. But not always valproate will cause problems. On the other hand uncontrolled epilepsy is more dangerous for you and your baby. Majority of the valproate related problems can be diagnosed in ultrasound. But some problems can develop at relatively late age of the baby. Please start folic acid and discuss the issue in a meeting with neurologist, gynaecologist and your family being present.
