I am diabetic for 20 years. Insulin dependent, high bp. Under control. Suffering with gastric trouble. How to control gastric trouble. Nexpro L using but no relief. Sugest.

Mr T Subba Rao, are you having T1 or T2 DM? By referring as 'Insulin dependent" you mean, to control sugar levels along with oral drugs Insulin injections are also being used is it? Any way, If your fasting level is closer to 100 mg and PP around 150 to 160 mg and HbA1c% <7, then the disease is in good control. Gastric trouble is very non specific description. Are you having hyperacidity or belching with gaseousness or burning sensation in the epigastric region ? What is the problem? Most often hyperacidity occurs due to a number of reasons like over weight, smoking, alcoholism, eating too much of spicy food, remaining hungry for very long time, irregular food habits etc. To control this you should develop regular food habits, eat a small quantity every 2 to 3 hours, avoid spicy, oily and too sweet foods. Refrain from smoking and alcohol. Remain erect afer food for at least 2 to 3 hours. Avoid taking pain killers and other drugs which initiate gastric secretions. Use antacids if need be.

I leave it to you to take care about your psoriasis from your doctors. I should have been given more details, like your blood sugar readings at morning empty stomach level and 1 1/2 hours after principal morning meal. An initial reading of 200 mg % is taken as of diabetes. You may also get hba1c done. If anything above 7.5 just go to a physician or diabetologist with these reports to get proper health plan. Your main problem appears to be weight. Ideally it should be max 65 kg. You have to control your diet under guidance of dietitian or physician. Eat in time avoid free sugars in form of sweet, fruits. Fried dishes. Take high fibre food like green leafy vegetables, reduce your intake by about 300 cal per day. Regular exercixe like walking, sports, cycling swimming etc. Watch your weight. Get blood sugar done after food on weekly basis and hba1c once in 3 - 6 months. Share it with your doctor regularly and take his advice. I feel you are prediabetic and with above advice can postpone it by long period.

A high uric acid level can be caused when your body either produces too much uric acid or your kidneys don't eliminate uric acid rapidly enough. A high uric acid level may cause increasingly frequent attacks of gout, or it may never cause problems. A high uric acid level may also cause some people to develop kidney stones or kidney failure. And some people with a high uric acid level also develop high blood pressure, heart disease or chronic kidney disease, but it's often unclear whether this is a direct cause or merely an early warning sign of these conditions. Factors that may cause a high uric acid level in your blood include: Diuretic medications (water pills),Drinking too much alcohol,Genetics (inherited tendencies),hypothyroidism (underactive thyroid),Immune-suppressing drugs,Niacin, or vitamin B-3, obesity,psoriasis, Purine-rich diet — organ meat, game meat, anchovies, herring, gravy, dried beans, driedpeas, mushrooms and other foods Renal insufficiency — inability of the kidneys to filter waste Tumor lysis syndrome — a rapid release of cells into the blood caused by certain cancers or by chemotherapy for those cancers,Also, you may be monitored for high uric acid levels when undergoing chemotherapy or radiation treatment for cancer. Avoid protein diets, avoid more milk products. bad habits , fast food/fat/oily,salty foods. Coffee, smoking, alcohol intake. Non-veg., take whole grain,oats,green veg.,plenty of water in day time, 1 glass of water at night before bed. Take tab. Zyloric 100 mg once a day. Take tab. Bencid 500 mg once a day. Tab.

Is coconut oil used for cooking and is good for diabetic patients? Any side effects. Suggest me which oil is best for cooking purposes?

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for your query. Coconut oil contains mainly medium chain fatty acids (MCT), these are good for health. Help reduce cholesterol, provide good energy and nutrition. This is one of the main cooking medium employed in some parts of South India (Kerala). For a diabetic person also it is a good cooking medium. However, no single oil is ideal. So it is advised to use two or three different types of oils. Like sunflower oil, safflower, palm, ground nut and other varieties. Now a days there are some bleneded oils also are available. Thanks.

Mr Rakesh, Thanks for the query. Cycling is a good exercise. But should be carried out for a substantial amount of time like an hour or so. Whether one measures kilo meters or minutes does not matter. It is a good exercise for everyone including diabetic person. Thanks

Hi looking at your height and weight, you are having grade 1 obesity, with bmi of 30.35 kgs/m2. The reason for this could be hypothyroidism, as it increases weight. Unless well controlled efforts to reduce weigh will not be fruitful. As regards the treament with thyroxine, yes it has to be started immediately. Aim is to bring down tsh levels to around 3 to 4 milli units/l. This is a condition occurring due to deficiency of hormone thyroxine produced by thyroid gland. Since that hormone is required daily for multiple metabolic functions and functioning of brain, replacement has to be continued for life time. It is very safe treatment. Thanks for the question.

What diet to be taken for hyperthyroidism. If neomorcozole 10 mg tablet control the above problem. I expected your valuable advise and diet control.

MBBS, FCGP, DRM, FEBNM (Europe)
Nuclear Medicine Physician, Mumbai
Dear Mr. lybrate-user, If your blood thyroid hormone levels are well controlled with 10 mg of Neomercazole, than there is no need for any specific diet. Only if the symptoms recur inspite of Neomercazole, you can consider radioactive iodine as a permanent solution for hyperthyroidism.

Dear lybrate-user, I find it had to believe that your Cousin's doctor is ignorant of her problem. Some drugs used for Diabetes can give gastrointestinal symptons such as vomitting and cause low sugar levels. I am quite sure you doctor is aware of this. I would encourage you to dicuss this aspect in detail with her doctor. If the fasting and PP blood sugar levels are in normal range without antiglycemic drugs the it is quite like you do not need the drugs. Nevertheless, it is quite likely that you could be a pre-diabetic. Your doctor should be able to prescribe lab tests to determine this and treat the same.

Hello, I want to know everything about thyroid. How long one have to take medicine for thyroid? What are the effects of it if you stop taking medicine after some time?

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Hello, if you are talking about hypothyroidism, then the treatment with thyroxine which is hormone replacement therapy, hence has to be continued for whole life. Our thyroid gland produces t4 and t3 (t4 is thyroxine, t3 is triiodothyronine). Iodine required for synthesis of thyroxine. Iodine deficiency can lead to hypothyroidism and goitre. Hypothyroidism causes weight gain, slow heart rate, joint pains, swelling of face and lower limbs, dry skin, dry hair and hair fall, irregular menstruation, excess flow, speech difficulty, inability to concentrate, early tiredness and intolerance to cold. Hypothyroidism is diagnosed on the basis of tsh levels. Also another condition known as hashimoto's thyroiditis also causes hypothyroidism. In both these conditions treatment is taking thyroxine tablets for lifetime. Dose depends upon tsh levels and body weight.
