You need to treat your thyroid. Homeopathy helps to cure it. Avoid cabbage soyabeans broccoli. Brisk walk 45 min or aerobics would be good.

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.

Myths and Facts about Diabetes and Insulin

MBBS, DNB (General Medicine)
Endocrinologist, Delhi

Hello everyone, I am Dr Hanish Gupta. I am an expert in Diabetes and cardio vascular diseases. I am working in various major Hospitals in Delhi. Today I am delighted to be with you to discuss about Diabetes and Insulin.

Lot of our patients is using Insulin as a medicine for diabetes. And they are always under an impression that the Insulin is not a very good choice, that has been made by their doctor for the treatment. The first thing that crops their mind is that, Insulin once started will always going to be a drug of choice for them. But believe me, it is not so. Insulin can be started at any stage of the diseases and it can be continued/ discontinued at your doctor's impression for your disease process. Meaningby. Insulin is not only a best medication for you just because it is the most natural thing available in your body, but because of the fat that Insulin is the most easy prescription that a patient can get.

I will explain you why..

Lot of people belive that by giving Insulin as a medication which is used with an injection, they are doing something un natural. But that is not the case. Diabetes is not basically a sugar problem, rather it is a problem for Insulin. It is a problem of imbalance of Insulin in the body. There is sugar in the body that needs to enter the muscles, but it is not able to enter the muscles, primarily because Insulin is not available in the body. And that is why, whenever a diabetics comes to a doctor, the choice of medicines that runs across the minds of a doctor, is Insulin. Doctors believe that it is easy to take medicines by mouth rather than taking by injections. And that is the primary reason that Insulin is not prescribed to everyone.

There is a myth that is attached to Insulin that Insulin is a medicines which is prescribed to failure patients. Patients who cannot do anythinga and those which are at last stage of the disease are prescribed Insulin. But belive me, Insulin is not such a medicines which can only be prescribed to the patients on last stage or the failure patients. Insulin infact, can be prescribed at any stage of diabetes. And it can be discontinues also at any stage of the diabetes. There are some patients who have been taking Insulin from number of years but because their diabetes get controlled due to good amount of exercises and good amount of diabetic control, their Insulin is stopped. And they coninues to have a very healthy and a very natural life onwards. Just taking medication. There is also one thing that Insulin causes highest amount of hypoglycemia, meaningby which the lowering of blood sugar. I believe, that patients dont take Insulin that they believe that their sugar level rae going to be so low that there will be no sutainance of life.

But that is the problem, that is more prominent with cases of oral medicines taken. Infact, oral medicines cause Hypoglycemia upto a very prolonged period, upto a matter of 48 hours. But in Insulin, when there is a lowering of blood sugar or Hypoglycemia, tat lasts only a matter of 4-6 hours. Because the action of Insulin is such that it stops acting after it is eliminated from the body after 6 hours. But as far as the oral medication concern, they continue to be in the body for a long period of time, they also keeps on continuing and the Hypoglycemia also continues.

So friends, that is all for now. I hope that I have been able to dispell some of your doubts on Diabetes and Insulin. And I hope to get in touch with you through Lybrate very soon, through audio or text consult, which ever is your choice.

And you are free to take offline appointments also by visiting my profile on Lybrate.com.

Thanks alot, be healthy and be disease free.

Sir, you need to see a physician, get a few more tests done. Diabetes is not diagnosed with just a single reading of high sugars. Then depending on your blood reports evaluating your blood sugars, since how long they've been high, how your kidneys are functioning, the correct medicine for diabetes if you have it, is prescribed. So do consult a good physician as soon as you can.

Diabetes mellitus is a group of metabolic diseases characterized by high blood sugar (glucose) levels that result from defects in insulin secretion, or its action, or both. Normally, blood glucose levels are tightly controlled by insulin, a hormone produced by the pancreas.in diet whole grains, fruits, veggies, beans, and nuts. People with type 2 diabetes who eat a high-fiber diet can improve their blood sugar and cholesterol levels. Fiber supplements can also help you get the daily fiber you need. Get regular exercise. Eat a healthy diet. Get enough sleep at night. Lower your stress as much as you can. Don't smoke or drink too much alcohol. Track your blood sugar levels. For any further query feel free to contact me through Lybrate.

Mr. Lybrate-user, since you have hypertension and diabetes, it is essential that both these conditions are well in control. Plus you should do regular exercise so as to keep both upper and lower back muscles well toned and relaxed. There are specific exercises for upper and lower back muscles, which should help in overcoming the stiffness in these muscles. Your weight is shown as 91 kgs, but height is not mentioned. It appears you are having excess weight, which can be a mean reason for stiffness in the back.

Diabetes is not a health concern but a condition where sugar in the blood does not allow the absorption of many nutrients, as a result, many other concerns take place. If you want results then you would have to correct the diet, deal with the deficiencies, and make a healthy diet plan. You can contact separately.

If you have type 2 diabetes and your blood sugar levels are racing up and down like a roller coaster, it's time to get off the ride. Big swings in your blood sugar can make you feel lousy. But even if you aren't aware of them, they can still increase your risk for a number of serious health problems. By making simple but specific adjustments to your lifestyle and diet, you can gain better blood-sugar control. Your body uses the sugar, also known as glucose, in the foods you eat for energy. Think of it as a fuel that keeps your body moving throughout the day. Blood sugar highs and lows

Hi! Good evening sir / madam suffering from thyroid problem this week I tested TSH value 7.70 so which tablet I have to use? How much mg tablet?

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Mr Mohiuddin, Thanks for the query. I think this question is with regard to your wife, if so you should have provided her height and weight. That would have given some idea as to whether she is overweight or obese. Giving your details has no meaning. TSH 7.7 mU/L is above normal, but falls in the subclinical stage. That normally is not treated unless there are specific symptoms related to hypothyroidism. Thanks.
