What symptoms we will feel if blood sugar is going high ?

MBBS, DGO (cal)
General Physician,
You may not feel any symptom till you become sick. Such thing also happens. Usually one start with three combinations of symptoms - polydypsia - increased thirst, polyuria - increased urine volume and number, polyphagia - increased food intake due to increase appetite. And loss of weight. Family history (parents / siblings), obesity, excessive eating, lack of exercise predisposes diabetes.

lybrate-user it depends whether you want to be a professional body builder or it is your own interest. I am asking this because for staying fit and have good muscles is one thing and constantly working on them is different. Serious body building has some challenges and it is a full time thing under constant supervision of three people Gym trainer, Doctor and Dietician. Gym people advise people certain supplements to develop the muscles which is a manipulated combination of proteins by science- this resulted in your high uric acid levels. I do not know how high as you have not mentioned the value. Staying fit and staying muscular are two different things its like you want to be fit like actor Akshay Kumar or muscular like actor Dwayne Johnson. Before going any further keep this thing in mind that the time you are devoting to develop muscles above average will be same to reduce your muscle mass by exercise later when you will not be able to give this much time to gym. I would suggest you see a doctor for your physical examination and required tests and a dietician for appropriate diet. Avoid mutton, whole cereals like sabut urad, sabut masoor etc.

yes, now there is a continuous glucose monitoring device available at various hospitals ,which can directly show the blood glucose levels at frequent intervals. based on that ,you can easily determine whether insulin caused a drop in blood sugar by changing its dosage.

I was prescribed Pre Aldonil 150 in place of Pre Aldonil 75, which I am taking presently. The doctor went abroad soon after advising me this, and is not going to be reachable for a long time. I cannot find 150 in Mumbai market. My chemist suggests I take 2x75 instead if 1x150 once daily. Is it safe for me to accept this suggestion? A quick and clear answer will be much appreciated.

Diabetes can be controlled effectively by lifestyle modifications. Daily brisk walking to jogging/ playing badminton, tennis, football, swimming etc. Eating healthy diet. Junk food and high calorie food must be avoided. Then comes medicines which will control blood sugars further low as needed.

Which food good health which oil we can eat.
Hello, in t2 diabetes treatment is usually begun with oral anti diabetes drugs, like metformin, glimepiride, gliptins and thiozolidinedions etc. Later insulin is used if oral drugs do not work or there very severe diabetes. In t1 insulin is the only treatment. As regards food intake a person with diabetes has to have a balanced diet like all of us. But should avoid simple sugars, sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries, sweetened aerated drinks, fructose corn syrup containing products, high fat cheese, saturated fats, highly processed foods, butter and ghee. Should consume more of green leafy vegetables and salads, fruits and use whole grain products and avoid refined flours. As regards cooking oils a mix of oils should be used.
