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?

Mr. lybrate-user, Sugar and jaggery are both made form cane sugar juice. So there is hardly any difference between those two. Jaggeruy is supposed to contain some more minerals and vitamins. But both are sucrose, which is immediately converted to glucose in the body increasing the blood glucose almost instantly. Various types of food that we eat like rice, roti, chapati, potato, sweet potato, corn and many other food stuffs all contain starch, this is ultimately converted to glucose in the intestine. However, it takes over 3 to 4 hours for this process to be completed. So the blood glucose rise is comparatively slow. Even with most fruits the main sugar is fructose, it is different from glucose. Certain fruits are high in sugar like banana, mango, grapes & chikkoo. Those should be eaten very occasionally or just a small piece. Thanks.

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.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the details. As I had written Zita Plus does not cause swelling of feet. It could be due to high BP or kidney involvement. Blood glucose level appears in good control, even though fasting has to be closer to 100 mg. You may have to check kidney functions and also thyroid test. Thanks.

Sir, you need to see a physician, get a few more tests done. Diabetes is not diagnosed with just a single reading of high sugars. Then depending on your blood reports evaluating your blood sugars, since how long they've been high, how your kidneys are functioning, the correct medicine for diabetes if you have it, is prescribed. So do consult a good physician as soon as you can.

Diabetic Retinopathy - What you should know?

MBBS, MS - Ophthalmology
Ophthalmologist, Ghaziabad
Diabetic Retinopathy - What you should know?

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:

  1. 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.
  2. 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:

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.

Treatment:
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.

The usual cause of low back pain is the sedentary lifestyle that we lead these days. There is hardly any movement. We remain seated most of the time and stand for very short periods of time. Unfortunately walking, running and cycling like activities are also not a part of our daily routine. To add to it, our diet consists more and more of junk food. Fresh fruits, vegetables and high fibre foods are consumed less and less. This is a worldwide trend and is seen across all ages and cultures. These daily practices lead to obesity. The increased body weight puts lot of pressure on the spine which has to bear all the extra unwanted weight. The back muscles which are already weak due to lack of exercise and wrong posture are unable to cope with this increased load. This causes pain in the back muscles. When it comes to the medicinal treatment, homeopathic medicines are very helpful. They not only treat the acute stages but are also very helpful in the chronic stage of back pain. It must be said here that homeopathy offers a much better alternative for the permanent cure for low back pain. The focus of the homeopath is not just to relieve the immediate pain but to also eliminate the root cause of the pain. That is precisely why the homeopath asks so many questions which may or may not seem related to your immediate problem. A common cause that is easily overlooked is the presence of stress in an individual. Mental stress can also contribute to low back pain and should be taken into account while taking the details of the patient. This is absolutely necessary if you want a lasting cure You can easily take an online consultation for further treatment guidance.

You can give insulin injection on the abdomen. You have to rotate the site of injection to avoid swelling. Suppose you give today on left top, tomorrow right top, then right down & so on.

Hypothyroidism - How It Affects Your Lifestyle?

MBBS
General Physician, Gurgaon
Hypothyroidism - How It Affects Your Lifestyle?

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.
