Hello, My mother is having thyroid and blood anemia due to which her HB remains low. She is taking daily one dilzem tablet for heart beat function control and one thyroxine early morning as advice by doctor . Now recently she got some severe teeth pain and dentist advice her for root canal treatment of that teeth. As per HB test conducted today her hemoglobin is only 4.5. Request your advice whether we can go ahead with root canal treatment for teeth or should wait for HB to be little normal. Is there any risk to undergo root canal treatment at present position. Dentist told to consult physician and take advice to go ahead. Hence request your advice. My mother is 52 years old. Thanks!

Lybrate-user, root canal treatment (rct) is a surgical procedure, so it is better that before any such procedure blood picture improves. In fact hb 4.5g/100 ml, is too low. It may need packed cell (rbcs) transfusion. Or else should immediately start on iron preparations either capsules or if needed then injections. Hb g% should come to at least 8 to 10 g/100 ml, then operative procedure may be considered. Whether rct is done or not, she has to start on iron therapy immediately, becaus of very severe anemia. Such a condition will put severe strain on her heart function, thanks.

Hi- alternative could be proper diet 1000-1200 kal/ day diet. Right medications. Fre hand exercises. But should be practicing as per diabetologist's advice, proper suggestions & of course if these are really fit for you. But still patients can improve like this way as we are noticing.

Get your b. Glucose checked by glucometer at that time when you r feeling tired and weak. Low b. Sugar at that time needs to be ruled out. Get your bp checked too. You need dosage adjustments.

High sugar level is dangerous for all patients, because it affects large and small blood vessels, eyes, heart, kidneys and nerves. Can also lead to ulcers in foot etc. If diabetes is uncontrolled one is inviting all kinds of complications. Alcohol on top of it is further problem as it affects liver too.

Mr. Lybrate-user, blood glucose level of 451 mg is too high. It is better to use insulin injections to control that level. Otherwise there can be very severe complications related various organs. Oral drugs may not be benefiting much. Thanks.

You need to continue medicine for at least 1.5 to 2 yr before we can think of stopping this. Regarding eye you will require clinical examination which will let us know if you require any treatment for same. You can see endocrinologist near you or can show if you r from delhi or around.

Magji, I have gone through the details, every thing looks fine. RBC number is low (3.97 million/cc) Rest of the parameters look normal. But glucose (if fasting) then it is in the pre-diabetes range, similarly HbA1c% 6.5 shows there may be diabetes. So it is better if you get a OGTT done in you local pthology lab. Thanks.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology

I'm 43 years old male diabetic having problem under my foot feeling burning sensation under foot.
Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. If you have been having diabetes for a long time, then there is a possibility of developing peripheral neuropathy, which causes burning pain in the feet as well as tingling and numbness. Because of long standing diabetes that particularly if blood glucose is not well controlled then such symptoms are bound to occur. Ideally in diabetes blood glucose levels should be maiintained in following manner: FBG:<100 mg, PP 150 to 160 mg & HbA1c% <6.8. If one does not achieve these levels consistently then neuropathy is more likely to develop early. Thanks.

I am taking obimet 500 before and after lunch I am 45 of age, I am doing I hour exercise including fast walk and gym, I am eating sugarless food, like vegetables, fish, chapati and small amt. Of rice I taking this food in 4 parts beside that I am unable to control my sugar level but fact is that I have lot of tension from my home side, please suggest me how I control my sugar level?

MBBS, DGO (cal)
General Physician,
To control Blood Sugar four factors are most important. They are: 1) Exercise, 2) Diet, 3) Medicine, 4) Stress Management. I am not convinced about your taking Obimet 500 before and after lunch. Rather Obimet SR 1 G can be taken after BF only. If that is not controlling sugar you may need to add other medicine. Of course it is not clear what exactly you meant by' not controlled BS? There is no food as such which is sugar/CHO-less. Hope you need to talk to your consultant about your diet. Exercise is very much important but don' t over do or make a chaos of exercises in your life. Brisk walking for 5 KM daily shall be enough for you + some fat burning free hand exercises. You ar not that overweight. Your weight is very much near normal. Keep it below this. Stress management is done by meditation.
