Well for fully fit and healthy person eating more sweets may not cause any problem. But with family history of diabetes and if one is iver weight and physically inactive excess sugar and too much of sweets can be a problem and may hasten diabetes.

One patient who affected in diabetes since 20 years long, recently one finger pf right leg amputed by doctor. Please tell what will do?

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Regarding online consultation there are certain points which all should know and follow. 1) the description of the diseases should be complete in all respects, including any tests done and any medicines already taking. Just saying I have diabetes since 10 years and taking metformin cannot help a discerning doctor a scientific advice. 2) your place and name and mail id and phone number should be in the question. It is necessary at times to know where you stay to give a good advice. (for example if there the climate is warm or cold and many other factors) 3) it is necessary to keep in regular touch for some diseases like diabetes and hypertension. So make it a point to be in touch by asking private questions. And repeat the essential point of the previous question to give a continuing answer. All these are said with intention to give a scientifically correct answer and talk as if in a regular consultation about which I am very keen to. 4) for personalised attention and follow up ask privately and it is better to make online payment if you are asked to by the doctor. It involves his time and dedication to give you expert advice after studying your problem. Ask personally in case of doubts about any medical matter.

If medicines are required, you should take them. Side effects are minimal. The benefit of keeping your diabetes under control far outweighs any side effects.

I am becoming fat now-a-days .I had fasting blood sugar level of 135 mg/dl today morning. I was diagnosed to be pre-diabetic. Doctor told me to take istamet tablet daily once after breakfast, if not I would become diabetic in 3 years. He told that 70% of people who had this drug were relieved from diabetes. Is it true. Should I continue with this drug? What is your opinion?

Dear lybrate-user, considering your height and weight your bmi looks ok. A fbs (fasting blood sugar) 135 mg% is not prediabetic. It falls in category of diabetes. Never rely only on fbs. Please check plbs (post lunchbs) and three months average hba1c at the onset of treatment. Istamet can't prevent or reverse diabetes.

Hello I want to konw what is the main reason behind sugar what is the treatment for ot how we can prevent from them.

Hello I want to konw what is the main reason behind sugar what is the treatment for ot how we can prevent from them.
Mr. Lybrate-user, diabetes mellitus is occurring either due to lack of insulin or resistance to its action or both in type 2 diabetes. In t1 there total absence of insulin due to destruction of beta cells which produce insulin. The other contributing factors mainly for t2 are overweight, inactivity and junk foods with aerated drinks. Treatment for t1 is taking insulin injections for life time. There is no option. For t2 there are oral antidiabetes drugs and also insulin injections. In addition regular exercise, diet control and maintaining normal weight are equally important. Thanks for the question.

Mr. Lybrate-user, please clarify who is having diabetes? age of the patient and type of diabetes? these details are not clear. Anyway, if some one has diabetes then treatment has to be started with appropriate drugs. Plus diet control and regular exercise also are required. To suggest any treatment there is a need to know fasting, pp sugar level and hba1c%, dietary pattern and extent of exercise being done daily. It will be better if these details are given. Thanks.

Mr Rahul, If blood sugar level is not under control then fungal infections particularly of prepuce can occur fairly frequently. So please see that your blood sugar levels are near normal (fasting about 100 mg and PP about 150 to 160 mg). Then also need to take anti fungal treatment.

Hye, thanks for the query. For a diabetic it is best advised to have a diet planned as per the sugar levels, lifestyle and history. Though you can follow some guidelines - the sugar levels will fluctuate depending on what you ate or did not eat, stress levels and activity levels. You have to try and manage a balanced carb intake. Have small frequent meals. Do not fast for long hours. You have to eat 3 main and 3 mid meals. Your diet must include whole grains, seasonal fruits, vegetables, small amounts of nuts and dairy and pulses or dals or lean meats like chicken or fish and egg. Starchy vegetables need to be planned into the diet. Avoid a very heavy meal at one time. Avoid fruit juices, aerated drinks or sugarcane juice, honey, jaggery or sugar. Avoid junk foods. Exercise and stay active. Avoid exercise if sugar levels are above 250 mg/dl. There are many exercises you can do even in this position. Do not attempt to try out too many remedies as you could go into hypoglycaemia. Sleep well. It's all a matter of discipline.
