Mr Md Shoyeb, A patient with diabetes should take a balanced but restricted diet, matching the caloric needs based on blood sugar levels, ideal body weight and extent of daily exercise. She should avoid sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods,pastries, red meat, egg yolk, high fat cheese. She should walk at least 1 hour a day. All these things should help in controlling diabetes.

It's difficult to decide the type of diabetes from the info provided. At your age, type 2 or mody are the commonest types. However, type 1 could also occur, though less common. The only way to decide would be to do the following tests: 1) serum c peptide 2) gad-65 antibodies 3) hba1c.

I ve diabetic retinopathy is their any other medication than laser. Please tell me.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Lybrate-user, laser is used when there is proliferative retinopathy and bleeding (pre- retinal, or vitreal). Because those newly generated vessels which bleed have to be burned. Once that is done, if needed other treatments also can be used like intra vitreal injections. The treating ophthalmologist is the best judge for treatment choice. It better to follow that, as this is a sight threatening condition. Thanks for the question.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Mr. Lybrate-user, hypothyroidism is a thyroid hormone deficiency disorder. This hormone is required for development and functioning of brain, plus for all vital metabolic activities of the body. With out which there can be serious metabolic problems. Hence supplement of this hormone is the only treatment. Hence thre is cure for this condition. Taking thyroid hormone in appropriate dose is the only option.

Dear Sir /madam I have hypothyroidism problem and I am using medicine for that since last one year but due some unavoidable causes I have not taken medicine for 1weak. Is any new problem will arise. The medicine that I am using is "Thyronorm"(100 mcg) Tablets. With these any side effects will come? If yes please suggest me what to do.

MBBS, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Mumbai
dont worry you can start taking thyronorm 100 mcg again from tomorrow. no side effects . thyronorm is thyroxine suppliment i.e. T4 . in primary hypothyroidism thyroid gland normally unable to produce sufficient quantity for T4 so thyronorm treatment restores normal blood T4 level.

I'm diabetic and my husband too. We don't have kids and we r planning .I read drinking mint tea (mint boiled in water) is good for diabetic .I read some where taking more mint can lead to impotency and sterility. Is it true!

one or two leaves are sufficient to give flavour. Mint in small ammounts is good for everyone but doesnot lower sugar. In large ammount it causes impotency, I donot know.

Mr. Lybrate-user, all the values are high, signifying affection of liver function. Bilirubin level shows jaundice is present. High enzyme values mean liver function is affected. Major precautions to be taken are take a healthy diet, avoid high fatty diet, refrain from alcohol and smoking. Do regular exercise for at least 45 minutes a day. Thanks.

My wife is a diabetes and she is having medicines to keep her sugar level under control. Of late she is complaining that when she passes urine it is not continuous. She takes 3 to 4 minutes, it is not with force. It stops and she passes it with breaks. Pls advise what is causing this and what remedy she has to take to get this over. Thanking you Salim.

Hello, Your wife is suffering voiding symptoms- that means she is not able to urinate normally- voiding symptoms usually include hesitancy in initiating flow- the patient takes a couple of minutes to actually start to urinate; she may also complain of intermittency- that is starting and stopping the urine flow; poor stream of urine etc. This could be due to a few reason 1) age related detrusor muscle (muscle of urinary bladder) weakness 2) urethral stricture, urethral wall diverticulitis etc (some obstruction in her urinary pipe), 3) some mass in pelvis 4) consolation etc. So, I would suggest you to consult a good urologist and take his opinion. Hope this helps you. Thank you.

10 Symptoms That Signal Hypothyroidism. Do You Have Any Of These?

10 Symptoms That Signal Hypothyroidism. Do You Have Any Of These?
10 symptoms that signal hypothyroidism

When your thyroid malfunctions, you may face difficult health issues. Hypothyroidism leads to excessive weight gain and a lot of other medical ailments. It can be identified by a bunch of symptoms which if present, should not be taken lightly.

1) weight gain - if there is sudden and unexpected weight gain, this is the earliest and definite sign of an underactive thyroid gland. This means that there are strong chances of lowered levels of t3 and t4 hormones in the body, leading to slow metabolism in the body. People suffering from hypothyroidism face increased body weight which becomes difficult to lose despite maintaining healthy diet and exercising rigorously.

2) constant fatigue - if you have slept well the night before, yet you are tired and if this is a regular feature, then chances are that your thyroid gland is underactive. Being low in energy, it gets difficult to complete daily chores or exercise.

3) swelling in the neck - another telltale sign would be goiter - an abnormal swelling in the neck. The thyroid gland mainly concentrates iodine from the blood to create both the thyroid hormones. If there is iodine deficiency in the body, this process gets disrupted resulting in hypothyroidism.

4) hair loss - hypothyroidism causes hormonal imbalance which in turn causes hair loss. If there is sudden, unexplainable hair loss, chances of hypothyroidism are high.

5) imbalance in body temperature - if you are suddenly feeling too cold, it is advised to get your thyroid tests done.

6) brittle nails - if your nails have become brittle, get chipped very easily and look weak, this could be an indication of hypothyroidism.

7) mood changes - the weight gained and the excessive fatigue, both trigger massive mood swings which at times, the person has no control over.

8) constipation - the contractions of the digestive tract get weakened due to low levels of thyroid hormones resulting in constipation. Chronic constipation without any apparent reason could be an indicator of hypothyroidism.

9) irregular menses - if your periods are irregular, do not take it lightly. This could be most likely because of hormonal imbalances which are caused by hypothyroidism.

10) slower heart rate - if your heart beats at less than 60 times per minute, it could be because of the interference by thyroid hormones.
