I am having Type 2 diabetes from the last one year. Sugar consumption is prohibited in diabetic people. Is consumption of jaggery (gud) also prohibited? Fruits also contains sugar. So are fruits also not to be consumed by diabetic people? My feet are getting black patches. Is it because of diabetes?
In continuation to my earlier question I have been asked to mention my sugar level. Last tested one week back the fasting was 131 and the pp was 165. Sugar has been detected a month back. My coloeatrol level was little on higher side. So I have been advised to take Razel A-150 after dinner for 2 months. As I have already mentioned for diabetic I am taking Zita plus. The leg is swelling for past one month.
Do we have any medicine to cure diabetic, Today I have checked my blood in the morning I found 170 in fasting. Please suggest to cure this diabetes.

Diabetic Retinopathy is a complication of the eye that occurs because of diabetes. It is a condition that damages the light-sensitive tissue of the retina. It can start with a medium to low level of problems in vision and can advance to complete blindness. It is mostly witnessed in patients who are suffering from type 1 or type 2 diabetes. An uncontrolled blood sugar and diabetes levels in a patient pose a greater threat of diabetic retinopathy.
What are the symptoms?
Diabetic retinopathy could be devoid of any symptoms in its early stages. However, as the condition progresses, a person might experience the following symptoms:
- Empty or dark areas in the vision
- Blurred vision
- Spots floating in the vision
- Fluctuating vision
- Complete loss of color vision
- Complete vision loss
Possible causes of Diabetic Retinopathy
Too much sugar in the blood vessels can block the blood supply in the retina. In the meanwhile, new blood vessels can form in the eye that does not fully matures and leak easily. Typically, there are two types of diabetic retinopathy:
- Early diabetic retinopathy: This is the type of diabetic retinopathy where the new blood vessels haven’t started growing in the eye yet. This condition is also known as NPDR. In this phase, the walls of the retina blood vessels weaken and numerous tiny bulges extend from the vessel walls. This condition could even leak blood into the retina. The nerve fibers and the macula tend to swell and requires immediate treatment.
- Advanced diabetic retinopathy: This is the most severe and advanced type of diabetic retinopathy and is known as proliferative diabetic retinopathy. This is a condition where the damaged blood cells shut down resulting in the growth of new and abnormal blood vessels. It leaks a jelly like substance and fills the vitreous. Eventually, the scar tissue can detach the eye from the retina. It can also result in a condition known as glaucoma.
What are the risk factors involved?
Patients suffering from diabetes can have diabetic retinopathy. The risk factors further increase in the following condition persists:
- High blood pressure
- Tobacco use
- Diabetes for a long duration.
- High cholesterol
- High or low blood sugar level
Tests and diagnosis:
An ophthalmologist tests the vision, look for cataracts and measure the eye pressure. In addition to this, he looks out for symptoms of abnormal blood vessels, retinal detachment, the growth of scar tissue swelling of the retina etc. A doctor might also prescribe tests such as optical coherence tomography and fluorescein angiography.
For early diabetic retinopathy, a doctor might not take any action but closely monitor the condition. If it aggravates, a doctor starts treatment when he deems fit. For advanced diabetic retinopathy, the doctor might go for focal laser treatment, scatter laser treatment and vitrectomy. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an Ophthalmologist.

Thyroid is a gland which is located in the neck right beneath the Adam’s apple. The hormone produced by it is called thyroxin and this hormone is responsible for controlling the body’s metabolic rate. This gland works as a thermostat for the human body as it controls other hormones which are responsible for burning and using calories.
How does it affect your life?
- Hypothyroidism, also known as the ‘underactive thyroid disease’, is a disorder which causes the thyroid to secrete insufficient hormone, thus causing the body’s metabolic rate to slow down, and in turn affecting the heart rate and body temperature.
- The people who suffer from hypothyroidism often experience weight gain and sensitivity to cold. Weight gain in case of hypothyroidism occurs despite having a low appetite. This is because the calories consumed are not burnt and used appropriately.
- Fatigue is another major issue associated with hypothyroidism. Individuals suffering from hypothyroidism usually become tired after the first half of the day.
- An underactive thyroid also causes drowsiness and depression. These may initially not seem to be major problems but in the long run, both the quality of life and overall health are usually negatively affected by it.
- Thyroid related issues have become more common nowadays. Research shows that an unhealthy lifestyle is one of the major reasons behind this. Sedentary lifestyle involving little physical movement coupled with consumption of an unbalanced diet has led to surge in the number of such cases.
Doctors prescribe medications in case of hypothyroidism. But apart from medicines, simple modifications in lifestyle can go a long way in addressing this disorder. Research shows that consuming a healthy diet rich in iodine and comprising of sea food and green leafy vegetables, can increase the production of thyroxin in the body. Regular exercises must also be coupled along with following a proper diet. If you wish to discuss any specific problem, you can consult a general physician.
