Whether insulin is better than oral medicine for diabetic patients?

Diploma in Diabetology, MBBS
Endocrinologist,
Ideally, insulin is found in our body. So it is better than the oral drugs. But the pain of taking multiple insulin injections throughout the day along with multiple pricks for monitoring blood sugar makes oral medicines the 1st choice of treatment. Also, when oral meds cannot control blood sugar, insulin the only choice available then.

My m In-law have a v low level of hemoglobin. 6. She is a diabetic also. How to improve hemoglobin level?

Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)

My m In-law have a v low level of hemoglobin. 6. She is a diabetic also. How to improve hemoglobin level?
Diet- 1. According to Ayurveda, the body comes down with anemia (low hemoglobin) when the Pitta is disturbed (combination of fire and water / related with digestion). The best way to cure pitta is to clear out the intestines. There are a few ways to do this: running down a glass of milk with water, boiling it and drinking it lukewarm before going to sleep or coconut juice on an empty stomach are very good. 2. Fresh juice of wheat grass twice daily is very beneficial. 3. Fresh carrot and red beetroot can be sliced and taken with lemon juice on it. 4. Take 100 ml of spinach juice for 4 weeks. 5. Just two grams daily of black seed could result in reduced fasting blood sugar levels, along with decreased insulin resistance, and increased beta-cell function in the pancreas. Do not's- Fried food and sour food like dry cottage cheese shouldn’t be consumed. Avoid tea and coffee. Tea and coffee shouldn’t be taken during meals and intake must be reduced as they decrease the absorption of iron. Note- Vitamin C increases the absorption of iron. So if you are taking any medicines for increasing hemoglobin take it with lemon water. Add lemon in spinach juice, spinach sabji, beetroot juice etc. Yoga- Sarvangasana, SuryaNamaskar, Anulom-Vilom.

Thank you.
Whenever beta cells of the pancreas are damaged it can lead to high sugar levels and few symptoms of diabetes are - increase in appetite, urine output, thirst, decrease in weight etc and in a known case of diabetic we need to control sugar levels with medication, aerobic exercise and following a diabetic diet.

Mr. lybrate-user Dey, From the details given these are some conclusions: 1) Fasting and PP glucose levels are high. Idealy FBG should be closer to 100 mg, PP 150 to 160 mg. HbA1c% is good. It means you have to be careful in your daily food intake. 2 )TSH is normal. 3) Rest of the parameters (LFT, lipids & blood picture) are normal. 4) Grade fatty liver is not very significant. But if you indulge in alcohol then stopping it is ideal. 5) BP is high, it should be 130/80 mm Hg. Thanks.

Mr. Lybrate-user, please get her retina checked for diabetic retinopathy in a good eye hospital and initiate the treatment. Plus her blood sugar also should be very well controlled. She needs immediate retinal examination. I hope you understand. Take care.

My wife suffering from thyroid since last 3 yrs. Feeling tired many times and gaining weight. What should I do.

M.sc Food & Nutrition
Dietitian/Nutritionist, Mumbai
My wife suffering from thyroid since last 3 yrs. Feeling tired many times and gaining weight. What should I do.
Being a dietitian my views: there is no single diet chart for everyone. To plan a specific diet we do collect lot of information like height, weight, food frequency, digestive history, medical history, likes, dislike, lifestyle, eating habits. Remember one thing to follow a diet it should be personalized according to person's body type and not generalized. Starting with there is no pills or powder or shake which can help you to lose weight in a healthy way. To lose weight eat an hour within walking up and dinner at least 2 hours before you sleep. Avoiding eating anything after dinner. Breakfast should be your king size have good complex carbohydrates and protein rich. Eat every 2 hours small frequent meal do help in weight loss. And do not overeat. One can come to ideal body weight with few lifestyle modification. Have green tea only 2 cups a day. For exercise I would say diet plays 80 % role and exercise plays 20 % role in losing weight. Personal advise on gym. You should not make your body habituated with machines rather do simple walk or surya namaskar or planks. So only with healthy eating one can lose weight.

Most of times cold is viral and doesn' t require any specific medication. Usually it disappears in 5. 7 days but times it persists for longtime. If you have already taken antibiotic course then do not take any medicine and try some home made remedies.

Mr. lybrate-user, Your query is very general, so it is difficult to give any answer. It will be good if you give following details: 1) Her thyroid test details like T3, T4 & TSH levels. Plus if anti - TPO antibodies test has been done. 2) What are the tests suggested, Plus what are symptoms she is complaining of. Looking at those details I will be able to guide. Thanks.
