Mr. Lybrate-user, diabetes is a non-communicable disease, it does not spread by eating used food or water (jhootha khana ya pani lenese). This ia condition due to deficiency of insulin or resistance to its action or both. If your uncle has it, it is possible that it may spread to his children. Plus your uncle being a close relative of yours, you or your brother may get it because of spread in the family due to heredity.

Common Insulin Alternatives

DDF, FCCP, MD , MBBS
General Physician, Delhi
Common Insulin Alternatives

Insulin is the most common treatment prescribed for people affected with diabetes. Diabetes is condition where high amounts of glucose prevail in the blood for an extended period of time. However, there are some drugs that offer an alternative to insulin in treating diabetes, which are:

  1. Liraglutide: Liraglutide is a glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) drug that causes the body to release greater amounts of insulin so as to facilitate the movement of glucose from the blood to the cells. People with type 2 diabetes generally use this treatment. It slows the digestion process and can cause symptoms of headache and nausea. 
  2. Pramlintide: It's an artificially produced version of amylin. It is taken by both type 1 and type 2 diabetic patients, facilitates slower digestion of food and therefore, controls release of sugar in the blood. It can cause tiredness and nausea.
  3. Dulaglutide:This treatment is for people affected with type 2 diabetes and it is administered once a week. It causes more insulin to be released and pass the glucose to the cells. It can cause loss of appetite, nausea and abdominal cramps as side effects.
  4. Albiglutide: This treatment facilitates pancreas to release insulin and limits the glucagon hormone production. It is used by type 2 diabetes patients who have not taken well to other treatments. The side effects are skin reaction, respiratory tract infection and nausea.
  5. Exenatide: It is a drug that causes pancreas to release insulin that facilitates movement of glucose to cells. It is a treatment for type 2 diabetes and it restricts release of glucagon in the body. The possible side effects are acidity, constipation and vomiting.

you have fatigue..pl. take multivitamin diet or drink plenty of water. take high-carbohydrate foods such as potatoes, rice, pasta and bread. You can take Nutrient-rich foods that improve your health may also benefit your thyroid gland, antioxidant-rich fruits and vegetables more plenty of water: Blueberries, tomatoes, bell peppers, and other foods rich in antioxidants can improve overall health and benefit the thyroid gland. Eating foods high in B vitamins, like whole grains, may also help. Selenium: Tiny amounts of selenium are needed for enzymes that make thyroid hormones to work properly. Eating selenium-rich foods, such as sunflower seeds or Brazil nuts, can be beneficial. Tyrosine: This amino acid is used by the thyroid gland to produce T3 and T4. Taking a supplement may help,

Hi, I wish your father a speedy recovery first of all. Its the hormonal response through which he doesn't feel like to eat. My suggestion would be give him the food which he used to like in his childhood and he likes now. Talking about diabetes, if its type 1 you need to make sure he's eating proper dinner and breakfast like scrambled eggs with 1 multigrain chappati etc and for breakfast ragi dosa with coconut chutney etc. Also educate him that if he doesn't eat he will not recover fast. For recovery make sure he takes all his vitamins and eat food like eggs, chicken, fish, tofu, soya, paneer, sweet potatoes, black beans, quinoa, oats, olive oil, desi ghee etc. Please make sure you take care of these things as the person who's suffering never takes care of himself so you should be the one who should be looking after it. There are many plans for a diabetic person and for a speedy recovery, if you need any assistance do not hesitate to get in touch with and ill be glad to assist you.

Dstill ear lybrate-user, it is difficult to give you specific advice without seeing your semen report, but eating more of fresh fruits and vegetables, not having too much coffee or smoking helps. Also keep fit by exercises.

Mr. Lybrate-user, a person with diabetes is not supposed to drink sugarcane juice. Because it is sucrose, which will increase blood glucose level almost immediately. So no sugar cane juice.

My mother is having diebities since last 10 years at an average level of 200 to 280 (fasting) now our family doctor had suggest to stat give insulin (lantus soloster) now the sugar level is from 100 to 140. Now I wanted to know that does this insulin has any side effects or not. And if yes what are they. And for how long will I have to continue this insulin treatments, is there any chances that insulin will be stop in future. Currently my mother's age is 50 years and also having asthama problem and unit of insulin is given from 8unit to 18 units. (2 unit is increased as sugar level rises above 110, and accordingly decrease if sugar level comes below 110 (fasting)). Is it true that once you stat giving insulin, it will have to continue whole life, it can't be stop, as other tablets will now be less effective. My mother is taking tablets 1) glix m. 3 times a day 2) pioz 15. Once daily 3) telecast a once daily 4) faracort 400. Twice daily 5) tiova. Twice daily please help me, I am confused.

consider this...your mothers body has stopped producing insulin ..thereby resulting in diabetes..u supply it externally as injections to fulfill that deficiency..whats the harm in it? we should be thankful that we live in an era where insulin is available ..otherwise in past there was lot of mortality due to diabetes....start insulin straightaway without any doubts

If you are in your initial stages, try diet-exercise routine to gain better control of your blood sugars with minimum possible medicines. Also, try losing atleast 10-12 kg of your weight. It will do wonders & there are chances that your medicines might stop for now. I would advise you and your family members to go for genetic tests as you have got the disease at such an early age.
