I am 29 years old. Today morning I checked my sugar just after waking up and my blood sugar showed 375! I am shocked. I am little over weight and currently from the past few months I am going through office tensions and work. I do not have the urination problem but I am getting irritated in a short while. I am also getting a slight pain near to my liver. The last time I checked was 2 months ago and it was 140. Yesterday I had an unusual diet for dinner at a party which included white rice and other junk food. Please advice. I am not find of sweets and avoid all sorts of chocolates and sugar. The only source of sugar is tea which I consume twice a day. My diet basically includes margarine and white bread for breakfast, 4 chapatis for lunch and generally 3 chapatis for dinner or sometimes white rice. In the evening I tend to have 4 slices of bread with amul lite. Please help. Is it because of the stress and the bad dinner last night or is my sugar gone for a toss. Or, should I test again in a couple of days?

Hello, It is essential for you to start antidiabetes treatment with appropriate drugs rightaway. Otherwise the condition can become worse and may lead to some of the long term complications of diabetes. Hence, please initiate immediate treatment. Plus follow a healthy diet and regular exercise schedule. Ideal body weight should be (height in Cms - 100 + IBW). All your intake should be based on IBW and extent of daily physical activity. All the best.

In diabetes one cannot have sugar or sugar products. But sugar substitute is alright only in the natural form. Which is stevia. Sugar free is not advised as it is synthetic and research has shown side effects. If sweets and ice cream is made with stevia then it is ok for diabetics.

Diabetes - How To Cure?

*मधुमेह के लिए घरेलू उपचार* 
1. औसत आकार का एक टमाटर, एक खीरा और एक करेला को लीजिए। इन तीनों को मिलाकर जूस निकाल लीजिए। इस जूस को हर रोज सुबह-सुबह खाली पेट लीजिए। इससे डायबिटीज में फायदा होता है।
2. डायबिटीज के मरीजों के लिए सौंफ बहुत फायदेमंद होता है। सौंफ खाने से डायबिटीज नियंत्रण में रहता है। हर रोज खाने के बाद सौंफ खाना चाहिए।
3. मधुमेह के रोगियों को जामुन खाना चाहिए। काले जामुन डायबिटीज के मरीजों के लिए अचूक औषधि मानी जाती है। जामुन को काले नमक के साथ खाने से खून में शुगर की मात्रा नियंत्रित होती है।
4. स्टीविया का पौधा मधुमेह रोगियों के लिए बहुत फायदेमंद होता है। स्टीविया बहुत मीठा होता है लेकिन शुगर फ्री होता है। स्टीविया खाने से पैंक्रियाज से इंसुलिन आसानी से मुक्त होता है।
5. डायबिटीज के मरीजों को शतावर का रस और दूध का सेवन करना चाहिए। शतावर का रस और दूध को एक समान मात्रा में लेकर रात में सोने से पहले मधुमेह के रोगियों को सेवन करना चाहिए। इससे मधुमेह नियंत्रण में रहता है।
6. मधुमेह मरीजो को नियमित रूप से नीम के चार से पांच पत्तो का सेवन करना चाहिए।
7. चार चम्मच आंवले का रस, गुड़मार की पत्ती मिलाकर काढ़ बनाकर पीने मधुमेह नियंत्रण में रहता है।
8. गेहूं के पौधों में रोगनाशक गुण होते हैं।

Dear lybrate-user, It is always better to do Free T3 and Free T4 rather than Total. The decision to increase or decrease Thyroid dosage depends not just on the lab report but on the status of symptoms. Other factors relate to status of other metabolic imbalances and the presence or absence of comorbidities. Management of Hypothyroodism should be comprehensive through an elaborate protocol. Prima facie I would say, if your energy leves are good, weight under control and moods quite positive, there is no need to change your present dose of Thyroxine.

All About Type 2 Diabetes

All About Type 2 Diabetes

Glucose is the primary ingredient within the body, which is turned into an energy source. This is what we use when we move, walk or make the slightest movements. To metabolize glucose into energy, our body needs insulin, which is a hormone produced within the pancreas. However, if the body doesn't react to the insulin or the pancreas is unable to produce enough, glucose cannot be converted into energy and thus results in type 2 diabetes.

Symptoms of type 2 diabetes:

  1. Sudden or gradual weight loss despite increased hunger - Many people complain that they feel hungry and eat more, but despite this the tend to lose weight. This occurs as the body cannot metabolize glucose and uses energy reserves from fat or muscles leading to weight loss.
  2. Frequent infections and slow healing - If you are afflicted with type 2 diabetes, then it might affect your immune system and you may be prone to infections. Also, any cuts or bruises on your body will take much longer to heal than normal.
  3. Irritability and fatigue - Another common symptom of type 2 diabetes along with the other symptoms mentioned here is quick irritability and fatigue. This is because most of the body is deprived of sugar and thus lacks the energy needed to function normally. 
  4. Constant thirst and increased urination - If you feel constantly thirsty despite drinking ample water and urinating frequently, this may be a tell tale sign of type 2 diabetes.
  5. Skin darkening in folds and creases of the body - Also known as acanthosis nigricans; this is known darkening of the skin where it also becomes velvety to the touch. It usually develops in the folds of skin in areas, such as the neck and armpits and is a direct result of insulin resistance.

Causes of type 2 diabetes:

Some of the most common causes of type 2 diabetes could be:

  • Being overweight
  • Lack of physical activity
  • Genetic predisposition or family history 
  • If you are more than 45 years of age
  • Hormonal problems such as Polycystic ovarian syndrome

Treatment or management of type 2 diabetes:

In most cases, major lifestyle changes can easily keep the symptoms of type 2 diabetes in check although, in certain cases medications may also be required. Some of the steps necessary are as follows:

  1. Change in diet and healthy eating
  2. Physical activity and exercising
  3. Regular blood sugar monitoring and
  4. Blood sugar medication along with insulin therapy, if necessary

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.

This shows that you are diabetic and need management. First of all avoid high sugar foods, consume fiber rich food. Do exercise 40 to 50 minutes daily. Recheck your sugar after 1 month. If it is still high then you need medicines.
