Please let me know whether blood pp and fasting test is sufficient for blood sugar treatment?

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Hello to begin the treatment these two values may be enough. But it is necessary to see hba1c, blood creatinine and lipid profile to assess the situation more appropriately. Regular fasting and after food blood sugar checks will help you for controlling the diabetes.

I am 24 years old student. In past 3 years am affected with type 1 diabetics regularly am using 90 units of insulin (actrapid, insulatard) how to control and cure my problem pls explain briefly.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Mr. Lybrate-user, t1 diabetes has to be treated by insulin injections only. There is no other alternative, insulin injections have to be taken for diabetes control as well as for survival. Along with that you have to take a restricted diet, so that it provides just exact calories, exercise daily for one hour for better glucose utilisation and reducing insulin resistance. T1 diabetes occurs due to destruction of beta cells of islets of langerhans (insulin secreting cells). This is an autoimmune disease.

Gum infection in diabetics patients is common. To reduce it, first control your blood sugar levels. Brush twice a day with soft bristle brush n use a mouthwash. Do salt water gargle twice daily. Massage your gums with gumex gum paint.

My father has been diagnosed with diabetes. It has been 5-6 years since. But he is just not getting totally free from this disease we are taking every precaution that we can. Doing whatever the doctor is according to the diet chart. If you could suggest something regarding treatment or diet it would be very much appreciated.

Firstly Diabetes is a disease which can be controlled, not cured. He will need to have a strict diet control along with medication. There are many drugs available which can be given to him. If medicines do not work then Insulin can be tried. Don't loose hope, consult a diabetologist and follow his advice.

In hypothyroidism:-- where there is deficiency of thyroxine hormone leading to sluggishness, tired feeling, weight increase, slow heart beats, intolerance to cold, swelling of legs, feet and face, difficulty in concentrating and at times in speech. Treatment for hypothyroidism is giving thyroxine tablets. And dose are according to level of thyroid for life time. Avoid bad habits . Avoid stress. Some Relax during work. Go for walk, Take plenty of water, high-carbohydrate foods such as potatoes, rice, pasta and bread. Nutrient-rich foods that improve your health may also benefit your thyroid gland, antioxidant-rich fruits and vegetables more plenty of water: Blueberries, tomatoes, bell peppers, and other foods rich in antioxidants can improve overall health and benefit the thyroid gland. Eating foods high in B vitamins, like whole grains, may also help. flax oil, Selenium: Tiny amounts of selenium are needed for enzymes that make thyroid hormones to work properly. Eating selenium-rich foods, such as sunflower seeds or Brazil nuts, can be beneficial. Tyrosine: This amino acid is used by the thyroid gland to produce T3 and T4.

Osteoarthritis is an irreversible process. Long term medication is not advised. Life style modification (avoiding squatting, cross leg sitting, stair climbing) and use of cane helps. Give here paracetamol for pain and start vitamin d therapy. Hope this helps.

I am very very big lover of sweets but the main problem which come between us is diabetes. How can I Control it.

B.Sc.- Food & Nutrition, M.Sc- Food Science & Nutrition, NET (LS)
Dietitian/Nutritionist, Kolkata
Sweets are unhealthy even for a non-diabetic person as sugar gives empty calories, increases weight & makes you addictive. You need to control your temptation to have sweets by- 1. Having enough protein & fibre in your meals 2. Having small frequent meals at regular intervals 3. Taking a piece of sweet fruit when craving for sweet occurs- ex: mango/ dates/ jackfruit/ watermelon/ banana. 4. Weighing the disadvantages & advantages of having sweets & explaining yourself.

Mr. lybrate-user, Please understand for diabetes only treatment option available is in modern medicine, either oral anti-diabetes tablets and/or Insulin injections. So please shift back to appropriate drugs as earlier. However, it is essential to look at what dosage of the tablets or Insulin has to be given. Plus please check HbA1c% and come back in a private conversation, where I will be able to guide specifically. As in this communication I am supposed to give only general guidelines. Thanks.

Hi , here are some things you need to ask yourself: 1. How frequently do you eat meals? are there long gaps in between your meals? 2. How often do you exercise? how often does your body get movement? 3. How often do you find yourself feeling stressed out? 4. What is your sleep quality like? 5. Are you eating junk and processed foods? an insight into these would then enable us to understand strategies that ought to be implied for successful, long-term blood sugar control. Hope this helps.

Dear doctor, My blood sugar is 111 (fasting) & 154 (random). It is possible that once I maintain my blood sugar in normal range, it will remain normal? Or I have regularly control it?

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Mr. lybrate-user, When blood glucose is checked either fasting, after food or random, it only reflects that day's glucose level. One can not guarantee that same levels will be maintained every day, because our eating is different every day. The day you eat more, it will go up. If you take more sweets level will shoot up. To maintain well controlled levels, one has to have a restricted and planned diet, exercise regularly and maintain normal weight. Thanks.

How safe is invokana 100mg for a diabetic with sugar values 120-130 on fasting and 250-270 on pp? do you suggest external insulin?

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Invokana is very new drug in india, its safety in clinical studies is good, however, we are yet to use it regularly. It has definite advantages some of the existing treatments. Taking insulin injections is in fact really good for you as it can bring sugar levels rapidly under control.
