You have thyroid problem, that's why your weight is increasing. You can follow balance diet. Avoid rice at night. You consumed 1glass lukewarm water in the morning. Then after go for a brisk walk atleast 45 minutes. Take small and frequent meals. Drink more water. Avoid junk food. And avoid soya product. Spinch, reddish, capsicum use limited amount.

Diabetes, often referred to by doctors as diabetes mellitus, describes a group of metabolic diseases in which the person has high blood glucose (blood sugar), either because insulin production is inadequate, or because the body's cells do not respond properly to insulin, or both. It is a difficult 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 & life style. For diabetes, hypertension (high BP) and many long-term illness control there is the need for regular advice and follow up. Just one time consultation or advice is not enough to guide a diabetic in scientifically & medically correct manner. For giving you regular follow up you ask me with all details like your daily eating pattern and medicines you take. I assure you a proper guidance. If you keep in touch personally.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Your thyroid test results are in the normal range. There is no reason to take any treatment at present. You will have to monitor the levels once is six months to see if there is any major change. At present there is no problem at all. If you have any doubts please comeback. Thanks.

Hi I'm 24 recently diagnosed with type 2 diabetes I checked my blood test of hba1C MY range was 9.7 and very next day again I checked my blood test the fasting sugar levels are 184 and post lunch it was 287 and I approached doctor and he gave me tablet called Glicalz -M I'm taking before 15 mins of my breakfast .and I maintained strict diet and after 10 days I went for blood test again my sugar levels are 120 before breakfast and after breakfast it is 147. Can any one suggest me if I maintain same diet and exercise can I stop taking medicines? Please help me.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. I have gone through the details given. Pre-diabetes is diagnosed when a person has FBG is 108 to 125 mg, PP 141 to 199 mg & HbA1c% 5.9 to 6.4. But these levels are without taking any medication. The levels you are referring are with medication. In your case already diabetes is diagnosed and the levels mentioned have been achieved because of taking medication. The moment you stop treatment blood glucose levels will shoot up. Please understand if a person is in pre-diabetes state, then he can prevent developing diabetes for a considerable time. But once diabetes is diagnosed there is no way of achieving normal glucose levels without proper medication plus diet and exercise. If you have any doubts please come back. Also look at your HbA1c%. Thanks.

Hi. My dad 58 years old diabetic and hypertensive patient. He had thorn prick 6 months back or so. Later the thorn was removed by my mom using a sharp object like pin after heating it. The thorn was removed n he had pain and the area was bit hard few days back. I thought it might be corn so I applied a corn cap by Apollo for it. The hard thing has fallen and area is normal and no pain and area of foot is normal. Later two days back I saw that corn caps are contraindicated in diabetics. I wanted to ask was it grave mistake. Or do I have to observe anything.

lybrate-user, In a person with diabetes, particularly in a middle aged or older person, it very essential to avoid using all such methods like using a pin to remove a thorn, applying a corn cap or poking sharp needle etc. Because there is possibility of affection of blood supply to the lower limb, and also neuropathy, which may have already affected sensory fibers. All these can lead to serious problems causing infection, ulceration and spreading of ulcer or leading up to amputation. So one should never do any such attempts at home. It is better to get his foot properly examined by your local doctor, to see if there is any problem. Thanks.

Mr. Lybrate-user, she has gestational diabetes, hence the doctor has prescribed insulin injections. That is the only option for treating diabetes in pregnancy. Taking insulin is the safest way and only way to treat this condition. If not treated, then fetal development is affected, there may be macrosomia (large baby), miscarriage. So she has to continue the treatment and her blood glucose should be maintained between 90 to 120 mg all throughout the day. Most often post delivery diabetes usually goes away. But there is a possibility of she getting it later.

While having meal, restrict amount of carbohydrates ( rice, sugar, mangoes, banana ) and fat ( oils, butter, mutton) and take plenty of green leafy vegetables. Then recheck your fbs, ppbs and hba1c level after 1 and half month and inform me. Wish you good health. Dr. S. Modak

Include food which are rich in iron in your regular meals. Such foods include: dark green leafy vegetables, dates, jaggery, raisins, nuts, legumes, pulses, etc. Increase your intake of vitamin C rich foods such as berries, sweet lime, orange, etc. Vitamin C help is increasing absorption rate of iron in body.

Mr. Lybrate-user, looking at your weight and height the bmi is 32.19 kgs /m2, showing grade 1 obesity (normal <23 kgs/m2). For better control of blood glucose it is necessary to maintain normal weight. Your ideal body weight (ibw) should be62 kgs. Therefore to control blood glucose level apart from taking insulin and other drugs it essential to reduce weight. That will also help in controlling lipid levels. Any exercise is as good as other. It is better to start with brisk walking for at least 1 hour a day. Later you can upgrade to jogging. You should also do strength building exercise on 2 days a week in addition to aerobic activity. Plus certain yogasanas and pranayam will also be beneficial. Blood sugar control will need insulin, oral drugs plus exercise, weight reduction and diet control. All these factors together will help. Thanks.

Diabetes - How it Impacts Your Eyes?

M.S
Ophthalmologist, Ahmedabad
Diabetes - How it Impacts Your Eyes?

If you are diabetic then it is important that you consult a ophthalmologist for regular check-ups. Diabetes is known to be one of main causes for blindness across all age groups. If you suffer from bouts of blurred vision then it is not likely due to a long term vision problem. It is temporary and usually occurs due to fluctuating blood sugar levels in the body.

How diabetes affects your eyes?
The lens of your eyes can swell if you are a diabetic, and this can impair your ability to see causing blurry vision. In order to rectify this problem, it is important for you to get your blood sugar levels under optimal levels. This entire procedure of reducing blood sugar levels may take three months or more.

Eye problems that are caused by diabetes
The major eye problems that can occur due to diabetes are

  1. Cataract: Cataract occurs when the lens of your eyes become foggy or cloudy. Although cataract mostly occurs to people who are middle aged or above sixty, you can get affected by this disorder at an earlier age if you are diabetic. Also, the deterioration or clouding of the lens progresses at a much faster rate than usual. Cataracts lead to an inability to focus as the retina is covered by cloudy layer.
  2. Glaucoma: This is another disorder that can occur due to diabetes. This is characterized by the buildup of pressure in the eye due to the fluids within it not draining properly. This intense pressure damages the nerves and blood vessels in the eyes, thus impairing your ability to see.
  3. Diabetic Retinopathy: Diabetic retinopathy is a disorder characterized by damage to the vessels in the retina that carry blood. It can occur if you have either of the type 2 or type 1 diabetes. If not treated in time it can lead to blindness.

If you have a history of diabetes or even borderline diabetic tendencies, it is highly advisable to constantly check your blood sugar levels and also get your eye checked at regular intervals, especially if you feel even the minutest vision problems.
