You need to reduce your weight. That will control your sugar levels. However you can still have a child. Diabetes can be controlled/managed by a proper regulated diet. 1. Eat whole grain food/grains instead of refined grains. 2. Avoid foods with high Glycemic Index (GI Index) 3. Avoid all forms of simple sugars like Colas, juices, sweets, biscuits, cakes etc. 4. Eat fruits and foods with low GI index. 5. Eat every two hours small meals/snacks. Take more green vegetables/salads. 6. Eat lot of proteins like dals, sprouts, egg, chicken etc. 7. Take chapatis made of multigrain atta. 8. Drink lot of water. 9. These herbs are known to improve sugar levels - tulsi, cinnamon, karela, flax seeds. 10. Do at least 30 mins of exercise everyday.

Silent Thyroiditis - Symptoms, Diagnosis and Treatment

MBBS, DNB (General Medicine)
Endocrinologist, Delhi
Silent Thyroiditis - Symptoms, Diagnosis and Treatment

The thyroid gland influences almost all the metabolic processes in the human body through the hormones it releases. The swelling or inflammation of this butterfly-shaped gland, when triggered by an immune response is known as Silent Thyroiditis. It can lead to hyperthyroidism i.e. the overproduction of hormones followed by hypothyroidism or insufficient hormone production.

The exact cause of this thyroid disorder is unknown but it is known to affect more women than men. Women who have just delivered a baby are also more vulnerable to this disorder. Some of the probable causes for this condition are autoimmune responses, discontinuation of steroid therapy, removal of the adrenal gland and treatment for cancer. A family history of silent thyroiditis can also increase a person’s risk of suffering from this disease.

In its early stages, the symptoms of this disorder are those of a hyperactive thyroid gland. These symptoms can last for as long as 3 months. In most cases, these symptoms are mild. In some cases, people may not experience these symptoms at all and may only notice symptoms of the second stage of this disorder or hypothyroidism. The most commonly experienced symptoms of this disorder include:

  1. Insomnia or difficulty falling asleep

  2. Tiredness and weakness

  3. Frequent bowel movements

  4. Intolerance towards heat and excessive sweating

  5. Increased appetite

  6. Weight loss

  7. Irregular menstruation: this may be short in the early stages and heavy in later stages

  8. Muscle cramps

  9. Irritability

  10. Nervousness and palpitations

  11. Hair loss and dry skin

Silent Thyroiditis can be diagnosed by a doctor through a physical examination and a few tests. Some of the signs your doctor will look out for are:

  1. An enlarged thyroid gland

  2. Faster heart rate

  3. Involuntary trembling or shaking of hands

In addition to this test results which indicate Silent Thyroiditis are:

  1. A reduced radioactive iodine uptake

  2. Increased levels of T3 and T4 thyroid hormones in the blood

  3. Presence of white blood cells in a thyroid biopsy

An early diagnosis can help make the treatment of this disorder easier. The treatment of this disease is dependent on the symptoms showcased. Beta blockers are commonly prescribed to relieve the excessive sweating and rapid heartbeat.

In most cases, the acute phase of this disorder will end in three months and the condition will resolve itself within a year. Over time, some people may develop hypothyroidism as a result of this condition. Hence, you should get yourself regularly checked up even after the symptoms have disappeared. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an endocrinologist..

lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. To control blood glucose effectively apart from medication (Insulin) patient also has to follow a strict diet control. Avoid sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries, bakery items and food made from maida. Plus match her intake based on ideal body weight, extent of daily exercise and blood glucose levels. Daily exercise of over 1 hour is a must. Unless all these aspects are properly taken care, there is no way of maintaining blood glucose levels in control. Only Insulin will not help. Since there is no mention of her diet and extent of daily exercise, so really no idea whether these aspects are taken care at all. Looking at her weight and height it is clear that she is overweight with a BMI of 27.82 kgs/M2, her ideal body weight should be 57 kgs, hence she has an excess of 12 kgs, which does hinder glucose control. Thanks.

Hello lybrate-user, Hope you are OK. Don't be worried about your problem. It is not only your problem. So many people suffering. Try to enhance your energetic power by taking some drugs of natural origin. Time will solve. Take Thyroid medicine to have normalcy. First of all you take thyroid medicine along with our herbal natural drugs like aswagandha shilajit etc. For better treatment feel free to contact.

Diabesity = Diabetes + Obesity

MS sexuality, M.Phil Clinical Psychology, PhD (behaviour modification), Certified in Treatment of Resistant Depression
Sexologist, Hyderabad
Diabesity = Diabetes + Obesity

Type 2 diabetes is reaching pandemic levels and young-onset type 2 diabetes is becoming increasingly common. Erectile dysfunction (ED) is a common and distressing complication of diabetes. The pathophysiology and management of diabetic ED is significantly different to nondiabetic ED.

Aim
To provide an update on the epidemiology, risk factors, pathophysiology, and management of diabetic ED.
Method
Literature for this review was obtained from Medline and Embase searches and from relevant text books.
Main Outcome Measures
A comprehensive review on epidemiology, risk factors, pathophysiolgy, and management of diabetic Erectile Dysfunction.

Results
Large differences in the reported prevalence of ED from 35% to 90% among diabetic men could be due to differences in methodology and population characteristics. Advancing age, duration of diabetes, poor glycaemic control, hypertension, hyperlipidemia, sedentary lifestyle, smoking, and presence of other diabetic complications have been shown to be associated with diabetic ED in cross-sectional studies. Diabetic ED is multifactorial in aetiology and is more severe and more resistant to treatment compared with nondiabetic ED. Optimized glycaemic control, management of associated comorbidities and lifestyle modifications are essential in all patients. Psychosexual and relationship counseling would be beneficial for men with such coexisting problems. Hypogonadism, commonly found in diabetes, may need identification and treatment. Maximal doses of phosphodiesterase type 5 (PDE5) inhibitors are often needed. Transurethral prostaglandins, intracavenorsal injections, vacuum devices, and penile implants are the available therapeutic options for nonresponders to PDE5 inhibitors and for whom PDE5 inhibitors are contraindicated. Premature ejaculation and reduced libido are conditions commonly associated with diabetic ED and should be identified and treated.

Conclusions
Aetiology of diabetic ED is multifactorial although the relative significance of these factors are not clear. A holistic approach is needed in the management of diabetic ED.

Psychosexual counseling in diabetic patient 
In order to avoid the problems inherent in the assessment of any organic component of impotence, a consecutive series of 20 diabetics were treated with psychotherapy after a detailed assessment of the psychological components of their disability, 13 patients improved in the long term and responders could not be identified from pretreatment characteristics. However, most of the patients had been impotent for several years and their successful adaptation may have limited the success of psychotherapy. There is a need to identify the impotent patient at an early stage in order to offer more effective treatment. This might also avoid the problems of adaptation and the need for detailed investigations of pelvic nervous and vascular function. The management of ED in the diabetic patient may often involve a multidisciplinary approach where psychosexual counselling and specialist Sexologist advice is required in addition to the skills of the diabetologist. Finally, the introduction of the new oral agents have completely revolutionised the management of ED and allowed more individuals to come forward for treatment.
