Hi. Your husband is carrying about 15 Kgs of extra weight on his body that will put pressure on all his internal organs. Extra weight also causes increase in Diabetes problem. Reduction in weight by even 5 Kgs can significantly reduce pressure on the organs. Next Issue is. Diabetes is not simply a 'Sugar' Problem. It is a problem of excess Carbohydrates. That includes excess of rice, roti, maida, sugar, sweets, juices, colas, potatoes etc Any excess carbohydrate/sugar stuff makes Diabetes worse. The solution is to have complex carbs like corn, multigrain atta, raagi, fibrous fruits like Apple, Papaya, Mausambi. You have to avoid over-sweet fruits like. Mango, banana, dates, chikoo etc. You have to completely cut down all Pure maida stuff like bhatura, samosa, white bread etc. Also he can take about 10-15 Almonds/cashew per day. Add some protiens in every meal like dals, matar, paneer, mushrooms, soya bean, eggs etc. He needs to do at least 60 minutes of active exercise everyday. Health is wealth. Take care of it now. Prevention is better than cure. If things don't improve visit a local dietician who can help him with a diet + exercise plan. Healthy living is the best investment with great results.

Mr. lybrate-user, If you have acute attack of gout, then you need to control the pain and inflammation with certain antiinflammatory drugs preferably with an injection. Then follow it up with tablets till the severity of acute attack is controlled. This is possible only with visiting your local doctor. Then you may also have to take drugs to reduce uric acid concentration in the blood. Plus avoid high purine (high protein) containing foods like organ meat, red meat, certain sea foods like sardines, salmon, scallops, herrings, haddock, mushrooms and mussels. Also avoid alcohol and aerated drinks (colas). Thanks.

Respected sir My mom is a patient of TSH thyroid and her thyroid is continuously increasing and my mom is following all doctor instructions correctly There are running 125 mg thyroid tablet until 3 month.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. It would have been better if you had mentioned the actual TSH level and other thyroid hormones. That would have given a clear idea. When one is under treatment for hypothyroidism taking adequate dosage of levothyroxine, then TSH is maintained around 3 to 4 mU/L, at that level all the symptoms are well in check. So please come back with proper details. Plus she should follow the instrctions regarding taking of the tablets on empty stomach early morning and nothing to be taken for next 1 to 1 and half hour. Thanks.

Diabetes mellitus is not a single disease entity, but includees a variety of metabolic dissorders associated with relative deficiency of insulin action an increase of blood glucose in many cases there is tendency to ketoacidosis, the most important immediate danger, an increased liablitiy to angiopathy that provides the most serious long term risk.

 Aetiology:- knowledge is far from complete, but two factors of imporyance have been recognized; over nutrition some form of hereditsry tendency. The importance of over nutritiion is shown by the fact the over the age of 40 some 80% of patients developing diabrtrs are, or have been, considerably obese. It is of interest that the food rationing of both world wars was associated with a temporary fall in the incidence of diabetes.

 * new classification use type 1, 2 diabetes
 * type 1 diabetes mallitus it is immune mediated in 90% idiopathic in less than 10%. In is also called juvenile onset diabetes mellitus as it affects 11 to 14 yrs. Old children.

 The insulin production in hampered so they require exogenous insulin.
 Type 2 diabetes mellitus the tissues where insulin acts become insensitive.

Clinical diabetes mellitus
 Primary stage
 * precinical
Secondary stage
 * diabetic gtt, but, asymptomartic.
 * symptomatic; full blown s/s.
 * with complications.

Pathology

 Factors possibly responsible for development of diabetes mellitus include. Deficiency of insulin antagonists.
 Excessive neogucogenesis.

Dear lybrateuser, -Since your mother is a diabetic avoid giving her glucose or sugar as it will disturb the blood sugar balance, glucose can be given only if signs & symptoms of low blood sugar occur -if you want to give then give her vegetable juice, lime juice(no sugar, use sugar free),low fat milk, soup -check blood sugar & give her proper diet including fruits, vegetables, wholegrains, low fat milk & milk products, lean meats, nuts -keep meal timings fixed, give a variety of food items, should take medicine on time, also do exercise like walking, should not feel tired, 7-8 glasses of water in a day.

Hi my mom is having diabetes. She was on medicine. She was having Glynase -MF 1 and half tablet twice a day. But from last few days she is having a lot urine at night. She is having a loss of weight as well. If there is any cut or injury its taking a lot of time to recover and heal. We did the fasting and blood test. Test results:- Haemoglobin= 11.5 gms% = 78%(By Hellige Method) True Glucose (Fasting):- 260 mgm% We are not sure about the type of diabetes. She is herself a nurse. Help me with a suggestion what should we do? Should we do a C-peptide test first? Before taking any medication. Suggestions please.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Since she has been taking oral anti-diabetic drugs for controlling blood glucose, it has to T2 diabetes. In T1 only Insulin Injection has to be given. No other drug works. She now has an uncontrolled diabetes that is the reason for excess urination at night and weight loss, because more of glucose is being lost in the urine. She needs to achieve a strict blood glucose control with FBG < 100 mg, PP 170 to 180 mg & HbA1c% <7. That means there has to be a change in the current treatment. New drugs have to be added or Insulin may have to be started. There are other options also, but in this communication we are supposed to give general guidelines only. No prescriptions are allowed. If you are keen for improving her blood glucose levels and achieve better control, please come in a private conversation with following details: FBG, PP glucose levels, HbA1c%, dietary pattern extent of exercise or physical activity, lipid profile, BP readings. Based on those details I will be able to guide specifically and help improve the condition. There is no need for C- peptide testing. Thanks.
