What are the causes of diabetes. Is it hereditary? What are the chances of it being inherited from parents?

What are the causes of diabetes. Is it hereditary? What are the chances of it being inherited from parents?
Type 1 diabetes occurs sporadically and usually occurs at younger age due to insulin deficiency and treated with insulin injections. Type 2 can be hereditary if your parents are disbetic and it occurs usually in adults due to insulin resistance and treated with oral medicines. There is 50% risk if both your parents are diabetic. It can't be cured completely but you can keep it controlled by taking dietary precautions n regular exercise along wid medications.

Lybrate-user, if any one has hypothyroidism, then only way to treat it is to take thyroxine hormone as a replacement. The condition occurs due to deficiency of thyroxine hormone produced by thyroid gland. This hormone is required for development and functioning of brain on day to day basis. Plus it is necessary for multiple metabolic activities in the body. If not provided (as tablets of thyroxine) then considerable problems occur including weight gain, slow heart rate, tired feeling, early fatigue, lack of interest, dry hair, dry skin and hair fall, difficulty in speech, inability to concentrate, swelling of face and lower limbs, irregular periods and excess flow, irritability, anxiety and depression. Only remedy for this is taking thyroixine tablets for life time. There are no other options. Choice is yours. Thanks.

Weight gain precedes the onset of diabetes

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Weight gain precedes the onset of diabetes
Weight gain after age 18 years in women and after age 20 years in men also increases the risk of type 2 diabetes.

The Nurses’ Health Study, compared women with stable weight (those who gained or lost <5 kg) after the age of 18 years to women who gained weight. Those who had gained 5–8 kg had a relative risk of diabetes of 1.9; this risk increased to 2.7 for women who gained 8–11 kg.
Similar findings were noted in men in the Health Professionals Study.

Thus, the excess risk for diabetes with even modest weight gain is substantial.

Weight gain precedes the onset of diabetes. Among Pima Indians (a group with a particularly high incidence of type 2 Diabetes), body weight gradually increased 30 kg (from 60 kg to 90 kg) in the years preceding the diagnosis of diabetes.

For diabetes follow a diet low in carbohydrate, low in fat and high in fibre. Walking for 30 mins a day for at least 5 days in a week is recommended. Follow a stress free life. Medication will depend upon your blood sugar value.

High creatinine levels of 10. Average creatinine in the last 5 months has been 3. Recurring urine infections have pushed the creatinine to this level now. Phosphorus 9.9. History of diabetes for last 15 years. However average urine output daily is 1000 ml on a fluid intake of average 1300 ml. My question is if urine output is good, is dialysis needed? I think with proper hydration we should be able to bring her creatinine levels down. Is it possible that she has such high creatinine now because of lasix 2 tabs twice daily for 1 week that caused dehydration? Is peritoneal dialysis possible and effective at this age considering she is 94 now? Should we even look at Peritoneal dialysis as she is very weak now.

what is eGFR. and blood urea and BP?high creatinine is due to diabetic nephropathy. in this case kidney are not able to filter out waste from the body adequately due to probably kidney disease due to diabetes. u can do peritoneal dialysis at home after adequate training and taking precautions against infection. it may take up to 10 day( time to heal the catheter insertion site) after the insertion of catheter to start peritoneal dialysis. readjustment of doses of medicine for diabetes will be required. good luck

Limit fat to 25%-35% of your total daily calories. Get no more than 7% of your daily calories from saturated fat, 10% or less from polyunsaturated fats, and up to 20% from monounsaturated fats (like plant oils or nuts). Keep carbs to 50%-60% of your daily calories. Aim for 20-30 grams of fiber each day. Allow 15% to 20% of your daily calories for protein. Cap cholesterol at less than 200 milligrams per day.

Hello, if you have hypothyroidism and if it is not in control, then weakness and tired feeling through out the day and even sleepy feeling can occur. When in excellent control tsh level will be between 3 to 4 mu/l. It is better if you give full details like earlier thyroid test results, current tsh levels and whether you exercise daily or not. Plus whether you are following all the guidelines about dosing and food restriction. Thanks.

I have hyperthyroid from 6 months and taking thyronorm 50 mcg. Now my TSH levels are normal. I'm drinking milk and eating eggs for strong bones and for stamina is it ok to drink milk and eat eggs when TSH are normal?

BHMS
Homeopath, Secunderabad
You can eat any food. Please maintain an ideal weight according to your height. The BMI should be in the normal range. So you should eat all healthy food and not just focus on milk and eggs. A balanced diet is ideal. Include more fruits and vegetables everyday as they contain fresh vitamins and other nutrients which can be easily absorbed. With proper nutritional support and exercise the bones become naturally strong. Exercise everyday along with some basic yoga and pranayama to overcome your thyroid problem in a very natural way. Take rest for 6-8 hrs and avoid all bad habits. Repeat the tests again after 4-5 months. You can also take the help of Homeopathy if there is not much improvement. You can contact me for a private consultation and further guidance.
