In t2 dm there is insulin resistance but there are no antibodies against it. Insulin resistance can be reduced by maintaining near normal body weight and a bmi of 23kg/m2. Exercising for more than 1 h a day is a good method of improving insulin resistance. Drugs like metformin and pioglitazone also help in reducing the resistance.

I am suffering from diabetics, and I am getting too much leg pain. What might be the reason please.
Diabetes leads to damage on the nerves of the body and due to damage to nerves the sensations for which these nerves are responsible which could be touch, pain, cold, hot etc would get compromised. Pain in legs is one such thing for which diabetics get prone to due to diabetic neuropathy.

Mr. lybrate-user, If diabetes is present for long time (a few years), and if not well controlled then it affects peripheral nerves causing numbness and pain. This usually happens in feet and toes. Sometimes there may be burning sensation also. Strict blood glucose control is the first requirement and some vitamin preparations may help. Thanks.

Dos And Don'ts For Diabetics

MBBS
General Physician, Mumbai
Dos And Don'ts For Diabetics

Diabetes is a disease which makes a person pay a greater amount of attention to himself or herself and his/her lifestyle habits. In order to fight diabetes successfully, some dos and don’ts really need to be followed. Let’s look at a few of them.

It is very important to make sure that a diabetic patient eats food at regular intervals. The risk of not following this is that the sugar level in the blood will drop, which in turn, will lead to a case of low blood sugar. This condition is known as hypoglycemia. This is especially true when it comes to people who have diabetes and are on heavy medication to keep it under control.

Carbohydrates are part and parcel of a balanced diet. Having said that, it is important to keep an eye on the type of carbohydrates which are being consumed. What this means is that simple carbohydrates should make way in the diet of a diabetic person rather than complex carbohydrates. As such, rice, white pasta and similar items should be replaced in the diet with oats and wheat. This can go a long way in helping you fight diabetes.

Exercise is pretty much the closest thing that has been found to the fabled elixir of life! There are plenty of benefits of doing a little bit of exercise on a consistent and daily basis. From cutting the risk of cancer to preserving the youth of the brain for as long as possible, exercise helps the cause.

Fat loss is yet another recommended way to keep a check on diabetes and exercise is the best way to go about it! When it comes to diabetes, patients are often advised to go for regular walks as it helps our body in using insulin, reduces glucose levels and cuts down on a person’s stress.

So, about an hour of walking, at least five days a week can really go a long way in helping a person who has diabetes.

Smoking is a strict no-no if a person is diagnosed with diabetes, as diabetic patients have higher chances of strokes and heart ailments. Also if you are addicted or habituated in drinking soft drinks, sports drinks or any other beverages which are high in sugar, it’s time to say goodbye to them, once you are diagnosed with diabetes.

The adherence to a strict regimen is great, but the usefulness is lowered if a person has binge days where the plan is not stuck to. While breaks from a diet are required; they should be reasonable and as infrequent as possible.

Have cervical and lumbar pain, give some advice for type 2 diabetes and pain and stiffness in leg.
Hello, as regards diabetes it is essential to control blood sugar as close as possible to normal. Fasting should be around 100 mg, pp should be 150 to 160 mg and hba1c% <7 (ideally <6.8%). About cervical and lumbar pain it is better to consult an orthopedician and get it assessed/ if certain physiotherapy is suggested then that should be followed. Most often certain exercises do help in improving those conditions. Even effectively controlling diabetes also improves those conditions considerably.

There has been no comparison between the two drugs till now. For all practical purposes, they are the same but sitagliptin offers the convenience of once a day dosing.

No instant medication as you think is there and controlling diabetes is long term procedure. 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.

Thanks for the question. Aapne jo blood glucose levels bataye hai, woh bahut hi jyada hai. Isase bahut serious bemariya ho sakati hai. (complications of diabetes). To control that level of blood glucose only Insulin Injection along with oral drugs is the requirement. Only on oral medication it is difficult to control. Plus she has to take a very strict restricted diet. 1) No sweets, no deep fried foods, no red meat. 2) No pastries, and bakery items, no sweetened aerated drinks (colas). Plus no items made of maida. 4) She should consume more of green leafy vegetables and salads and some fruits. (about 100 g a day). Blood glucose should be fasting: 100 mg and PP 160 to 170 mg and HbA1c%<7. If you are really willing to get proper treatment please come in a private conversation with all details like her weight, height, diet pattern HbA1c% and extent of daily exercise, then I will be able to help. Or else consult a local doctor and start Insulin injections along with oral drugs. Thanks.

Can Genital Tract Infections Lead to Infertility?

DGO, MBBS
Gynaecologist, Delhi
Can Genital Tract Infections Lead to Infertility?

Disregarding genital tract infections and issues including the symptoms of the same can lead to problems when it comes to fertility. It may also cause problems in your sexual life. Genital problems can also lead to infertility. These days, infertility is a noteworthy and very important occurrence that plagues many couples.

Common Infections: A large portion of these genital tract diseases occurs because of infections. Salpingitis happens in close to 15% of ladies in their reproductive age and 2.5% of all ladies get to be infertile as an aftereffect of salpingitis by age 35. Many times, symptoms of conditions and STDs like Chlamydia  trachomatis trachomatis are usually nonexistent. The real rate of ladies with upper genital tract infections is presumably underestimated.

Infection and Infertility: Infectious agents can hinder different vital human functions, including reproduction. Bacteria, fungi, infections and viruses can meddle with the reproductive capacity in both genders. Diseases of male genito-urinary tract represent around 15% of the instance of male infertility. Diseases can influence distinctive areas of the male regenerative tract, for example, the testis, epididymis and male sex organs and glands. Urogenital diseases at various levels of their advancement, development and transport can affect the sperms themselves in this manner. Among the most widely recognized microorganisms required for sexually transmitted diseases, meddling with male fertility are Chlamydia trachomatis and Neisseria gonorrhea.

Symptoms: If the following symptoms of a genital tract infection are ignored, it can definitely lead to the person being infertile in some stage of life or immediately. These are as follows:

The signs and symptoms in males are

  1. Changes in the way you discharge
  2. Bleeding while urinating or discharge
  3. Thick white, yellow or green release from the tip of the penis along with pain in urethra or pain while urinating
  4. A hard but painless sore on the penis along with swelling of the lymph hubs in the crotch
  5. Pain or uneasiness while urinating or discharge from the urethra
  6. Difficult or irritated red spots and small blisters on the penis
  7. Chestnut bits on the hair around the penis
  8. Gentle delicacy around one of the testicles
  9. Delicate swelling in the scrotum on one or both sides
  10. Extreme pain after injury to your penis

The signs and symptoms in women are as follows:

  1. Irregular vaginal discharge with a pungent smell
  2. Burning sensation while urinating
  3. Tingling or itching in the outer area of vagina
  4. Uneasiness and pain during sex
  5. Sore vagina
  6. Foamy greenish-yellow discharge with a foul smell
  7. Light bleeding after intercourse
  8. Warts in the vagina

Regular check-ups and visits to the gynecologist are very essential. One should always keep the partner updated about their sexual health problems to practice a healthy and honest relationship and to avoid further contagious infections from occurring.
