HIgh Sugar will have increased thirst, frequent urination, appetite and weakness. Low sugar will have sweating and tremor and irritability.Diabetes affects all organs in the body ? Eyes, kidneys, nerves, reproductive system all are affected, In fact, from toe to hair. For diabetic control, patient should be under proper guidance for regular follow up and advice. It is not as easy task to control blood sugar in the desired normal range. Whatever we eat is metabolised to sugar in the body to provide energy for our daily activities. For the absolute control, one has to monitor his / her blood sugar at regular intervals (Self-Monitoring of Blood glucose ? SMBG). Though difficult, this can be done by a glucometer and keep a record. Get an idea of Fasting sugar (FBS) and 2 hours after food (PPBS), & HbA1C (inform me) and check before dinner and after every major food. The basic idea is to reduce the food intake to 1/3 of what you take now. The dictum of sugar control is diet, exercise, diet + medicine and at later stage medicine+ Insulin will be needed. There are different diet plans of varying calories for each person depending on his activity & lifestyle.

How did uric acid gets increased in our body and what are its symptoms & preventive measures?

How did uric acid gets increased in our body and what are its symptoms & preventive measures?
Dear lybrate-uservery good question. You See uric acid is a by product or breaking doennof certain molecules in the body. Especially it is acomponent of break down of cells. Normally our body is a perfect machine which is efficiently able to throw out this uric acid. Uric acid can increase if there is excessive intake of products that produce it like alcohol, spinach, red meat etc. Or if the enzymes that are used to process it are deficient. Or if the kidneys are not working, as uric acid is excreted through kidneys. Acute hyperuricemia can cause severe pain and swelling in a single joint. Most commonly it affects the great toe. Avoiding alcohol, red meat; drinking plenty of water are some of the ways to avoid it. Regards.

Dear, your hypertension and diabetes need to be treated by a physician whom you should meet in person, regularly check your bp and blood glucose level and get medicine from him. Please understand, these are life style diseases. You should change the way you love. Life style changes, behavior modification and exercise should provide you good relief even from anxiety. Anxiety is fear about unknown happening or fear about future. Anxiety about things which we do not know or anxiety about things we are not experienced are common. Please tell me what makes you anxious? past? present? future? career? economic status? health matters? anything else? let me know. Take care?

Please tell me the maximum limit of insulin can be taken as I am taking 27 units at bed time basalog.

Please tell me the maximum limit of insulin can be taken as I am taking 27 units at bed time basalog.
There is no" maximum dose" for insulin. In fact, it is one of the very few drugs that does not have a maximum dose. In other words, as long as you don't have hypoglycemia or other complications (eg: severe kidney disease) and your blood sugars are controlled round the clock, insulin is safe at any dose.

My mother's TSH is 1.98 but T4 is 15.5. What should I do? She takes Thyrox 75 mg daily. She is 64 and diabetic but diabetes is under control.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. With TSH value 1.98 mU/L and T4 15.5 ng, it appears her present dosage is a bit higher than required. Because if T4 levels go up, there can be symptoms of excess thyroxine. So there is a need for dose reduction. You can talk to her physician regarding this. Thanks.

Mr. Lybrate-user, your bp systolic is with in normal range, but diastolic should come down to 80 mm hg. You should continue the same medication, plus restrict salt intake and exercise regularly also learn to relax or meditate as that will help in controlling bp. Your lipids (cholesterol 210 is normal, tgl 190 mg is marginally high), can be controlled by avoiding high fat diet and regular exercise. There is no need for any medication. Blood glucose fasting 122 mg / 100 ml is in a pre-diabetic state. So you need to take precautions so that it does not progress towards diabetes. For that adapt a healthy modified lifestyle, which includes regular exercising for 1 hour or more, maintaining normal weight, avoiding junk foods, pastries and bakery items, sweetened aerated drinks, fructose corn syrup containing foods and high fat milk products. Plus stay away from alcohol and smoking. Thanks.

My mother is having type 2 diabetes from past 7 years. From last 1 years her fasting glucose is always high (more than 200). She is taking glimepiride 4 mg +metformin 1000 mg BD & vildagliptin OD for last 20 days but still today her Fasting was 240 PP was 262. Now doctor has prescribed insulin 30/70 - 15 units in night. Also glimepiride 4 mg in morning along with Sitagliptin+metformin 500 mg. Also metformin 1000 mg in night. Why her fasting glucose is so much high while PP usually under 200 mg/dl? Is the medication ok?

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. From the given information it is clear that she is already on very high dose of Glimepiride 4 X 2 tabs. Usually there is no benefit in giving such a high dose of glimepiride. Plus she is on Vildagliptin also. It is essential to bring blood glucose level to: FBG <100 mg & PP 150 to 170 mg & HbA1c%<6.8, in order to prevent long term complications of diabetes. Therefore, it is necessary to use Insulin injection like Glargine once a day along with the oral drugs (with a reduction in Glimepiride dose). If you are keen on getting a better control, please come in a private conversation, with following details: current FBG, PP levels, HbA1c%, her dietary pattern and extent of daily exercise. Then I will be able to guide. Please understand it is absolutely essential to reduce the glucose levels. If not with me please do consult your local doctor and take necessary steps. Thanks.

Hi, I am 50 Years old. I have been taking 150 mg thyroid for the last two years, Now my tests show that my Ferritin Level is 1244. Please suggest me some diets (yes and no both).

Although extremely elevated ferritin levels may be associated with rheumatologic diseases, more often they are found in patients with other conditions such as malignancy or infection. In addition, extremely high ferritin levels can be found in patients with seemingly indolent disease or levels of chronic inflammation.

Hello, I am 23 yrs old girl and I am suffering from thyroid disease and my Tsh level is increased by 9, and my weight is increasing day by day. What should I do?

Check your levels of thyroid antibodies. If they are high then you need to start medications for thyroid. What you have is subclinical hypothyroidism. A small dose of thyroid hormone tablet will solve your problems. Your weight loss will be achieved only after correction of tsh levels & following a regular diet & exercise programme.

What are the types of diabetes, What is the severity, whether it gives fatal cause? What are the remedies?
One should know only three types Type I (Insulin Dependent) Type II (Mostly controlled without Insulin) and Gestational (Only during pregnancy and mostly temporary) Although no specific complaints initially Diabetes if not controlled can cause many complications to vital organs and this may result in serious problem. There is no known scientific cure for Diabetes. But must be kept under control which is possible under any good doctor.

Continue thyroxine. Let her practice yogic therapy and relaxation. Avoid controlling her. Ignore, but respect her. She will recover if she concentrates well in her recovery. You join her practice a relaxed lifestyle than tense life.

Hi lybrate-user, I hope you're doing. Diabetes is a lifestyle or genetic disease which can lead to several problems if not taken care of. Can I know which type of diabetes you have? Is it Type 1 (INSULIN DEPENDENT - FREQUENT INJECTION) OR TYPE 2 (ORAL MEDICATIONS? Now talking about lifestyle, you need to very careful about what you're putting inside your body. Our body is like a temple, if you take care of it religiously it will give you back positive feedbacks. Think like this. Now I can assure you if you've Type 2 diabetes it can be reversed following a change in your lifestyle in terms of DIET, SLEEP PATTERNS AND EXERCISES. Diet Key Points - 1) Try to eliminate simple carbs like bread, potatoes, pasta etc. 2) Replace carbs with good fats like avocado, macadamia oil, olive oil, desi ghee, eggs, cottage cheese etc. 3) Try to eat moderate amount of protein as it gives you a feeling of satiety and does not have much impact on blood sugar levels. For ex. Eggs, Chicken breast, Cottage cheese, Tofu etc. 4) Try to drink more water and keep yourself hydrated. Every individual needs are different and hence a whole diet plan needs to be customized according to one's lifestyle, blood reports and eating habbits to make sure they stay on the track without any hassle. For any more information or plans regarding diabetes you can connect with me and Ill be glad to help you. Thanks & Regards,
