Bad breath or called as" halitosis" there are various reasons for bad breath. First of all update your medical history as the problem could be elsewhere in your body but will be shown as bad breath through your mouth as mouth being the gateway for your complete system. Apart from that there might be local soft or hard deposits on your teeth which can cause bad breath. This might need professional cleaning by the dentist your teeth might be not well aligned, which we call as" crowded" teeth which makes its challenging for you to keep it clean. So consult an orthodontist (specialist for braces) to align your teeth. Your health of the gums might be compromised which also leads to bad breath. Consult a periodontist for gum problems. Your teeth might have cavities where the food can get lodged and might lead to bad breath. Consult your dentist for this. Inspite of regular cleaning and brushing it might be difficult for you to get a fresh breath. As I mentioned above your dentist will tell you exactly the problem areas. Make sure you do your part well. Regular brushing of your teeth twice daily regular flossing of your teeth (which means cleaning between your teeth by means of floss) clean your tongue gently as it can harbour bacteria causing bad breath stay away from tobacco related habits consume a lot of water and stay hydrated. As dry mouth also leads to bad breath. Please do not use mouth washes if not prescribed by your dentist as they have their own side effects which would be a negative to your oral health. Pay a visit to your dentist every 6 months or earlier for routine cleaning as suggested by your dentist. Problems diagnosed and treated earlier needs less attention as well as works out financially easier for you.

Please note the following for your condition: • Avoid big meals late in the evening. You need three to four hours to digest a big meal. • Spicy or sugary food, even at suppertime, is usually a bad idea. Spices can irritate your stomach, and when it tosses and turns, so will you. Having a lot of sugary food—especially chocolate, which contains caffeine—can make you feel jumpy. • Try a soothing aromatic bath before bedtime. Add 5 drops lavender oil and 3 drops ylang-ylang oil to warm bathwater and enjoy a nice soak.

How Diabetes Can Affect Wound Healing?

How Diabetes Can Affect Wound Healing?

Diabetes is a chronic condition where glucose level of your body rises too high. There are two types of diabetes type 1 and type 2. In case of type 1 diabetes, the body fails to produce insulin and people suffering from this condition have to depend on insulin injections for the rest of their life. In case of type 2 diabetes the body produces less amount of insulin which is not enough for the proper functioning of the body. This type of diabetes can be kept under control by following a healthy diet and practicing exercise regularly.

Why diabetic wounds can cause severe problems?
Diabetes can cause a number of complications that makes it harder for certain wounds to heal. These include:

  1. Nerve damage: Until a cut or blister worsens and becomes inflamed, in case of neuropathy, you will not experience the pain. Diabetics often suffer from neuropathy, making it difficult for wounds to heal.
  2. Weak immune system: A minor wound may even get severe and become infected if your immune system fails to exercise its natural defenses.
  3. Narrow arteries: Blocked arteries may cause severe wounds which becomes difficult to heal. Clogged arteries make it difficult for the blood to flow to the affected area which slows the process of wound healing.

Treating a diabetic wound
You can follow the methods mentioned below to avoid getting infected:

  1. Taking care of the wound immediately. If the wound is not cleaned and taken care of, letting bacteria to build up, it can lead to infection.
  2. Avoid using soaps and hydrogen peroxide to irritate the injury. Use antibiotic lotions to prevent infection and use a sterile bandage to keep the affected area covered.
  3. Consult your doctor before any minor problems turn to larger ones
  4. Since the bottom of the foot is a common place for developing blisters and calluses in case of diabetic people, try to keep pressure off the wound as it slowly heals If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an endocrinologist.

Hello, Thanks for the query. Madam, if you are on adequate dosage of levothyroxine then TSH should have been maintained between 3 to 4 mU/L. At that level all the symptoms are usually well in control. Since your TSH is still 9.93 mU/L, the dose is inadequate. Uncontrolled hypothyroidism will give all the symptoms complained. These symtoms will go away only when TSH is brought down to above mentioned level. Thanks.

How can a healthy person get rid of getting diabetes mellitus by taking even correct balanced diet.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology

How can a healthy person get rid of getting diabetes mellitus by taking even correct balanced diet.
Mr. Lybrate-user, t2 dm is a familial disease, meaning if parents have then children are most likely to get it. But even otherwise, one can get it, mainly due to overweight, inactivity and uncontrolled consumption of too much sweets and junk foods. Hence, if one wants to remain free from diabetes, then adapting a modified lifestyle is very essential. Modified life style means: regular exercise for more than 1 h a day, maintaining weight near normal (ideal body weight = height in cms - 100 x 0.9 = kgs), taking a balanced and restricted diet, giving necessary amount of calories based on ibw and amount of daily exercise. Plus stay away from alcohol and smoking.

Mr. Lybrate-user, lemon water is fine, can be taken by a person with diabetes. Adding sugar free powder is also fine. But what is worrying is her blood glucose level of 300 mg, which is definitely very high. When diabetes is in control fbs should be closer to 100 mg, ppbs- 170 to 180 mg & hba1c% <7. So please see that her glucose levels are brought to necessary ones. Thanks.

pp sugar143 means slightly higher than upper limit of 140 mg/100 ml. It means you are in a prediabetic condition. From now on you have to exercise regularly for more than 1 h a day, maintain your weight with in normal limit for height, avoid deep fried foods, restrict sweets, avoid smoking and alcohol and junk food. Then you may be able to remain free of diabetes.

Mr. Lybrate-user, the above values are fairly good, particularly t3 & t4, tsh is marginally high, it falls in to a category as sub- clinical hypothyroidism. At that level no treatment is advocated. Certain precautions like avoiding soy beans, soy containing products, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, radish, peanuts, mustard and coffee. Regular exercise to avoid weight gain and consume more of green leafy vegetables as well as use whole grain flour for chapati nad roti. Avoid maida and products made out of it.

Once diabetes is detected apart from taking proper it is essential to take suitable diet which will depend on weight, level of physical activity and sugar levels. So it is usually a patient specific diet. General things to be kept in mind are use whole grain flour (n0 maida), very little oil, more green salads, less of potatoes, use multiple grains etc.
