What are the precautions for type 2 diabetes patients. Appreciate if you can explain in detail as your convenience. P...
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 and doctor should be n constant touch 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 & life style. For sugar 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 privately with all details like your daily eating pattern and medicines you take.

How could we diagnosis sugar that is wat we call diabetes at its early early stage?

How could we diagnosis sugar that is wat we call diabetes at its early early stage?
Hello lybrate-user, for early diagnosis of sugar you can undergo a simple random blood sugar level test. If it comes on a higher level then to confirm whether you really suffer from diabetes, you can do a glucose tolerance test (gtt). It's a definitive or a confirmatory test of whether a person is suffering from diabetes or not. I hope you are satisfied by my reply. Feel free to enquire if you have any query.

Hello, My mother is a diabetic patient from 15 years though her sugar is under control but her Uric Acid is very high and because of that she can't walk as her legs have swelling and paining. Kindly suggest a specialist for uric acid treatment.

Normal Uric acid levels are 2.4-6.0 mg/dL (female) and 3.4-7.0 mg/dL (male) Some diets that are rich in purine end up causing an increased production of uric acid. In other cases, it may be due to a completely sedentary lifestyle. Less intake of water also may be to blame in some cases as water plays an important role in washing out the excess of the uric acid. Regular usage of some medicines also cause the uric acid levels to rise. Another important factor is being overweight as obese people are much more likely to get gout as compared to those who have normal weight. It is a tragedy of the modern world that the superior advertising and marketing power of the allopathic system of medicine has eclipsed the good and genuine work of Homeopathy. This is largely because Homeopathic system of medicine cannot compete with the money power of Allopathy. Just because allopathy does not have any cure for gout, patients tend to think that there is no cure for gout at all. People are not aware of the great work that Homeopathy can do in the cure of gout. I cannot stress enough here that homeopathic medicines are pretty effective at curing the acute as well as the chronic gout A homoeopathic constitutional treatment will give you a permanent cure naturally You can easily take an online consultation for further treatment guidance and permanent cure without any side effect Medicines will reach you via courier services.

Doctor informed me that the reason for diabetes is low Insulin production. What's the reason for this type behaviour of insulin and once insulin production become inadequate, which solution trigger it to start reproduction of insulin naturally again?

Thanks for the query. You are right about low insulin production in diabetes. There are usually two main types of diabetes - T1 DM where there is totally No Insulin production. This happens due to destruction of beta cells present in pancreas, due to an autoimmune process. Type 2, which more common variery is due either to lack of insulin or increased resistance to its action, mainly due to increased fat and inactivity. When T2 diabetes is detected by that time almost 50% of beta cells are dead. So there is hardly any chance for revival of insulin production returning to normal. Plus excess blood glucose and high fat further damage insulin producing cells. However, strict blood glucose control, proper diet and regular exercise and maintaining normal weight does improve some insulin production. Thanks.

lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Voglbose is given to reduce post prandial (after food) glucose rise. Glucose may be high or normal before food, but with intake of dinner or lunch blood glucose levels are bound to go up, hence Voglbose is given to delay the conversion of disaccharides to. Glucose and delay the absorption. Another aspect Voglbose is usually recommended with every meal, that 3 times a day. Lastly repeted dose or medicine changing is not at all recommended. Thanks.

1. Diabetes can be controlled/managed by a proper regulated diet and exercise. 2. Avoid 3 big meals. Instead take small mini meals every 2/3 hours. 3. Take some protiens plus green vegetables/salad with every minimeal. 4. Avoid white foods like white rice, noodles, pizza, burger, white rotis. 5. Instead take whole grain foods like brown rice, multigrain atta, millets etc. 6. Avoid all forms of simple sugars/carbs like Colas, juices, sweets, cakes, biscuits etc. 7. Eat fruits with low/medium GI index like apple, guava, mosambi, orange. 8. Do at least 30-45 mins of exercise everyday. Walk for 10 mins after every meal. 9. These steps can help reduce sugar levels.

There is no need to take any medicine at this stage. Avoid excessive sweets and sugar intake and exercise regularly and get your blood sugar fasting pp and HbA1c after 1 month.
