Hello, Thyroid test should have been done before getting pregnant, According to American Thyroid Association ideally TSH levels should be below 2 mU/L before getting pregnant. During pregnancy levels should be maintained as follows: 1st trimester 0.1 to 2 mU/L, 2nd Trimester 0.3 to 3 mU/L & 3rd 0.3 to 3.1 mU/L. This is absolutely essential because fetal development is affected if the level is higher. The current level is very high. Your gynecologist should have mentioned this to in her briefing. Anyway, if you are not on thyroxine, please start treatment right away. Thanks.

It depends on the cause of his sugar rise. If your doctor feels that it is a temporary issue, then he may stop it after a few days. Eg. In case of infections, or if he has been irregular with medicines or diet, or its very high just at the time of diagnosis. However, sometimes in spite of taking all medicines regularly and following all precautions, the sugar level rises gradually when the duration of diabetes has been long. In such cases, insulin needs to be started and is permanent, although with dosage adjustments.

Diabetic Macular Edema - Know More About It!

DOMS, MBBS

Diabetic Macular Edema - Know More About It!

 Diabetic Macular Edema (DME) is an accumulation of fluid in the macula(part of the retina that controls our most detailed vision abilities)due to leaking blood vessels. DME develops in eyes wth diabetic retinopathy. Diabetic retinopathy is a disease that damages the blood vessels in the retina, resulting in vision impairment. Left untreated, these blood vessels begin to build up pressure in the eye and leak fluid, causing DME.

DME is associated with: 

  1. Those who have had diabetes for an extended amount of time
  2. Severe hypertension (high blood pressure)
  3. Fluid retention
  4. Hypoalbuminemia (low levels of protein in body fluids)
  5. Hyperlipidemia (high levels of fats in the blood)

Symptoms: Common symptoms of DME are

  1. Blurry vision
  2. Floaters
  3. Double vision
  4. Eventually blindness if it goes untreated

Who is at risk of diabetic macular oedema:

About 1 in 3 people with diabetes develop macular Eedema. People with type 1 and type 2 diabetes are at a higher risk of getting diabetic macular oedema. Also other risk factors are:

  1. Poor control of blood sugars
  2. High blood pressure
  3. High cholesterol level
  4. Pregnancy
  5. In smokers

How is diabetic macular oedema detected:
Diabetic macular oedema can be detected during regular visits to the doctor. Patients with diabetes should be offered screening tests. Digital photographs of the patients can be taken as they show the early signs of diabetic macular oedema, though changes in vision might not be noticed at this time.

What happens when you attend the medical retina clinic:
When you go for an eye checkup you will undergo a comprehensive examination which includes:

  1. Visual acuity test: This is a sight test which measures how well you can see the different distances
  2. Eye pressure test: This test is done to measure the pressure of the eyes and usually drops which numb the eyes are used when this test is conducted
  3. Dilated eye examination: In this the drops are placed in the eye to dilate the pupils and then the back of the eye is examined.
  4. Fluorescein angiography: This is a diagnostic test in which an injection of fluorescein dye is given in the hand and then the photographs are taken.
  5. Optical coherence tomography: This is done to measure the retinal swelling

How to reduce the risks of diabetic macula oedema:
The risk of diabetic macula oedema can be reduced by quitting smoking, and to make sure that blood sugar and cholesterol levels are under control. This is achieved by regularly measuring the cholesterol and blood sugar levels. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an ophthalmologist.

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) 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. I assure you a proper guidance... if you keep in touch. www.lybrate.com/drsajeev

Sir, it is unlikely because of medicines. It is due to your skin dryness. You can start applying Venusia Max cream twice a day for full body. Dont use soap everyday while bathing. When you want to apply soap, you can apply Zyndet bar. Please dont use scrub or loofah during bath and when you wear any wollen clothing, use a layer of cotton clothing in between

Thank you for writing to us. Please note the following in respect to your queries: vitamin b12 deficiency can happen if you have certain conditions, such as: atrophic gastritis pernicious anemia conditions affecting the small intestine, such as crohn's disease, celiac disease, bacterial growth, or a parasite heavy drinking immune system disorders, such as graves' disease or lupus long-term use of acid-reducing drugs. You can also get vitamin b12 deficiency if you're a vegan (meaning you don't eat any animal products, including meat, milk, cheese, and eggs). Treatment for vitamin b12 deficiency: if you have pernicious anemia or a problem with its absorption, you'll need to replace vitamin b12 by injection initially and then continued injections, high doses of an oral replacement, or nasal therapy for life. If the issue is that you don't eat animal products, you can change your diet to include vitamin b12-fortified grains, a supplement or b12 injections, or a high-dose oral vitamin b12 if you are deficient. Causes of vitamin d deficiency: vitamin d deficiency can occur for a number of reasons: you don't consume the recommended levels of the vitamin over time. Your exposure to sunlight is limited. You have dark skin. Your kidneys cannot convert vitamin d to its active form. Your digestive tract cannot adequately absorb vitamin d. You are obese. Treatment for vitamin d deficiency treatment for vitamin d deficiency involves getting more vitamin d -- through diet and supplements. If you don't spend much time in the sun or always are careful to cover your skin (sunscreen inhibits vitamin d production), you should speak to your doctor about taking a vitamin d supplement, particularly if you have risk factors for vitamin d deficiency. If you still need any help get back to me. Thanks.
