I had a random blood sugar test as a way of preventive measure and the result I got is 75 mg/dl which seems to be normal Should I have it checked in fasting as well. What's the difference between blood sugar test in fasting and random.

dear friend fasting sugar is done after a period of prolonged fast of about 12 hours, while randon sugar is done during any time of the day, the diagnosis of diabetes is based of a fasting and a 2h post 75 gm glucose load BSL. random sugar indicates towards likely hood of sugar abnormality.

lybrate-user, Looking at your weight and height, your BMI is 22.98 kgs/M2, which absolutely fine. However, if belly fat is there, that can be reduced by aerobic exercise and abdominal exercise and also by swimming. There is no mention about blood glucose levels or HbA1c%, so I have no idea about how well is diabetes controlled. As regards treatment of RA affecting the diabetes, it depends on what drugs are being given. Thanks.

Type 1 diabetes can be absent in the family. It usually gets diagnosed during an episode of illness like fever etc. Start diet therapy and exercise. Test serum c-peptide. If it comes out to be low, then she may be requiring lifelong insulin therapy. It may sound very shocking to you, but I assure you it is manageable and there is absolutely no complication of long term insulin therapy. But first test fasting and 2 hour post meal blood glucose, hba1c and c peptide. You can contact me with the reports.

Type II Diabetes is also known as Non-Insulin Dependent Diabetes Mellitus (NIDDM) or Adult-onset Diabetes. Diabetes mellitus is a syndrome characterized by increased level of sugar (glucose) in the blood due to deficiency or inactivity of hormone 'Insulin' that is absolutely necessary to monitor glucose metabolism of body. This is a metabolic disorder that is primarily characterized by insulin resistance, relative insulin deficiency and consecutively hyperglycemia. Diabetes is prevalent worldwide and if not attended properly, it may lead to serious complications.

Causes of Type II Diabetes:

Diabetes basically occurs due to defective insulin secretion combined with defective responsiveness of the body to the insulin (also called Insulin resistance). Due to both these factors, hyperglycemia starts occurring in the body. It is strongly associated with obesity and with increasing age. A strong inheritance pattern has been noted in cases of type 2 diabetes. Sedentary lifestyle, pregnancy, hypertension, cardiovascular diseases, etc pose as risk factors for developing Diabetes.

Type 2 diabetes can begin at any age though it is not very common in childhood. It usually begins with insulin resistance, a condition in which the body does not use insulin properly. At first, the pancreas keeps up with the added demand by producing more insulin but later it loses the ability to secrete enough insulin in response to meals. This ultimately results in Hyperglycemia (high levels of glucose in circulation).

Homeopathic Treatment for Type II Diabetes:

Diabetes is a constitutional disorder as it is an offshoot of constitutional defects (genetic factors, altered immunity) having an impact on the entire constitution of an individual. Hence it calls for an in-depth constitutional approach for its management.

Homeopathy is based on the principle that disease is a total affliction of body. Moreover, homeopathy recognizes importance of the underlying causes such as genetic and inherited factors as the root of any ailment of the body. Homeopathic medicines prescribed on such criteria plays a crucial role in management of many deep-rooted, chronic, difficult diseases; one amongst them being Diabetes.

When we talk about diseases like diabetes, we talk in terms of management rather than cure. Homeopathic treatment along with intake of hypoglycemic drugs and/or insulin can prevent the progress and the complications associated with this condition. Moreover timely administered homeopathic medicines help in maintaining the levels of exogenous insulin and hypoglycemic drugs at minimum possible dosage and in preventing the further progress of the disease. However, it may be noted that there is no substitute to insulin in homeopathy. The role of a healthy diet and exercise cannot be underestimated along with all the above treatment measures.

Hello, Mr. By saying" thyroid problem" are talking about hypothyroidism or hyperthyroidism? both have different ways to treat. Simply saying thyroid problem does not clarify any thing. If possible give your latest thyroid test results, which will help in identifying the exact condition and then treatment can be decided. If hypothyroidism is there it needs to be treated with thyroxine, dose will depend upon body weight and tsh levels etc. So please clarify then I will be able to guide.

You can take 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. 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. Taking a supplement may help, avoid alcohl if you take. go for morning walk, avoid stress. eat fat less foods. for thyroid you can take tab. thyronorm 100mcg. once a day in morning.

Mr. lybrate-user, Diabetes mellitus if T2, then depending upon the severity of insulin deficiency or resistance, treatment can be started either with oral anti-diabetic drugs or Insulin injections or both. Plus regular exercise and diet control are also equally important. As for hernia (if it is inguinal) depending upon the severity of the situation, most often surgery is the option. Thanks.
