Mr. Lybrate-user, if diabetes is diagnosed then appropriate treatment has to be initiated. General weakness is one of the main symptoms if blood sugar is not well controlled. If treatment is adequate then fasting sugar should be around 100 mg and pp 150 to 160 mg/100 ml and hba1c%<7. If this achieved then most symptoms will disappear and he will feel more fit and energetic. Apart from taking prescribed medication, he should take a restricted diet, that provides exact calories based on his ideal body weight, extent of daily exercise and blood sugar levels. It is good to know that he is walking 30 minutes twice a day. That is a must. He should also get his eyes tested to rule out retinal involvement due to diabetes. Thanks for your question.

Normal Blood Sugars. A normal fasting (no food for eight hours) blood sugar level is between 70 and 99 mg/dL. A normal blood sugar level two hours after eating is less than 140 mg/dL. You did not mentioned that this blood sugar level is fasting/ random or after meal I can guide you about your report if you are able to tell me that how many hour before you have taken your meal before giving blood sample

Thank you for writing to us. Please note the following in respect to your queries: vitamin b12 deficiency can happen if you have certain conditions, such as: atrophic gastritis pernicious anemia conditions affecting the small intestine, such as crohn's disease, celiac disease, bacterial growth, or a parasite heavy drinking immune system disorders, such as graves' disease or lupus long-term use of acid-reducing drugs. You can also get vitamin b12 deficiency if you're a vegan (meaning you don't eat any animal products, including meat, milk, cheese, and eggs). Treatment for vitamin b12 deficiency: if you have pernicious anemia or a problem with its absorption, you'll need to replace vitamin b12 by injection initially and then continued injections, high doses of an oral replacement, or nasal therapy for life. If the issue is that you don't eat animal products, you can change your diet to include vitamin b12-fortified grains, a supplement or b12 injections, or a high-dose oral vitamin b12 if you are deficient. Causes of vitamin d deficiency: vitamin d deficiency can occur for a number of reasons: you don't consume the recommended levels of the vitamin over time. Your exposure to sunlight is limited. You have dark skin. Your kidneys cannot convert vitamin d to its active form. Your digestive tract cannot adequately absorb vitamin d. You are obese. Treatment for vitamin d deficiency treatment for vitamin d deficiency involves getting more vitamin d -- through diet and supplements. If you don't spend much time in the sun or always are careful to cover your skin (sunscreen inhibits vitamin d production), you should speak to your doctor about taking a vitamin d supplement, particularly if you have risk factors for vitamin d deficiency. If you still need any help get back to me. Thanks.

Refined Cereals are Worst for Diabetics :

Sweetened breakfast cereals can cause a spike in blood sugar, but the response can vary. "Blood sugar reactions to cereal vary greatly from person to person," Even oatmeal—which is recommended as a good choice by the ADA—can be a problem if it's the sweetened, instant type.

Have this instead: Swap breakfast cereal for a high-protein meal instead, suggests Try an egg white omelet with vegetables and turkey or Canadian bacon with a small slice of low-carb (7 grams) bread. Cholesterol in the yolk may contribute to a higher risk of heart disease and diabetes, which makes egg whites a healthier option. Steel cut and traditional oatmeal, cooked slowly, is a better choice than other types of oatmeal as it is less likely to spike blood sugar. Small portions and adding protein can help.

Hi lybrate-user never take medicine or any fat burner for weight losstips for weight loss eat fresh vegetables daily. Avoid having sugar completely. Eat whole wheat bread instead of white bread; avoid everything made from white flour and make whole wheat bread, chapattis and brown rice a way of life. Do not skip a meal and eat three meals a day. Drink plenty of water to eliminate the toxins from the system. Limit your fat intake to 2-3 teaspoons a day. Increase the fiber intake as it provides a sense of fullness and also prevents hunger pangs. Take antioxidants for protecting the body against the toxins released during weight loss. Exercise catalyzes your efforts to lose weight and even regular walking for thirty minutes can give you the benefits of an aerobics exercise. To improve the metabolism, try increasing the duration, frequency, intensity of your daily workout. Remember that maintaining the ideal weight is a lifetime commitment and not a short-term affair. Firmly believe that the pleasure of being trim and healthy is far better than the pleasure of eating unwisely.

Hi, I am a registered dietitian, certified diabetes educator and a doctor (general physician) who will help you in your diabetes problem. Do let me know your hba1c value? also you need to provide me your daily food intake details.

Hello, Insulin is the best treatment for diabetes. It helps in better blood glucose control. About BGR 34, a so called combination of some herbal medicines based on ancient literature, without any new research. Plus it was tried only on few lab rats, where its efficacy was said to be 67%, which is just like a placebo. No human studies, no clinical trials, so best is to avoid it. Thanks.

Hello lybrate user I will begin this answer by stating that there is no such thing as an uncontrollable sugar. Sometimes it is believed that sugars can be uncontrollable because there is a maximal dose of insulin. But I would like to dispel this doubt and tell you there is no such thing as a maximal dose of insulin and the amount of insulin being given to a patient can be escalated to an optimal level so that the blood sugar target is achieved. Also, the following approach of treat to target in the case of diabetes is very important because if the patient is taking the medicine suboptimally then sugars might be slightly controlled but till the point of time that they're completely controlled a patient cannot draw the benefits out of the treatment. What I basically implying is that in the case of diabetes treatment with uncontrolled sugars is almost as bad as no treatment. Hence from your case as I understand that the patient is already on insulin and the only logical thing to do is to escalate the level of insurance so that the sugars are optimally controlled.

I generally feels pain in the both feet and legs may be due to increased of uric acid. I tested my blood 6 months back, uric acid was increased up to 9 on that time. I take moderate quantity of wine on weekend only. I m 52 years male. Pl advise me.

PDDM, MHA, MBBS

The first thing you should do is to eat foods that are high in fiber, This is because fiber rich foods absorb uric acid from the blood. Your kidneys then'throw' out the excess uric acid. Try to eat Oatmeal, Spinach, cauliflowers and Isabgol in milk if possible.  Please use olive oil to cook your food. Kindly avoid vegetable oils because they become unhealthy when heated twice. This leads to rancid fat in the body. These destroy vitamin E, that in turn controls uric acid levels. Olive oil also curbs uric acid by itself.  Vitamin C chewable tablets taken 500mg daily lower uric acid levels within 4 to 8 weeks.  Try to stop intake of sweets, cakes and pastries. Saturated fats are bad for you.  Many fruits have got potent anti-oxidant properties, like celery seeds, grapes and tomatoes, and these prevent harmful toxins from attacking your organs - releasing uric acid.

lybrate-user, Hypothyroidism if not in conntrol may cause a depressive tenancy as well as anxiety. On treatment TSH should be between 3 to 4 mU/L, to be free from all symptoms. Please check the levels. If high then dosage of thyroxine may have to be increased. Thanks.

Sugar free are not a good option, especially in someone so young. Please avoid sugar free. It is better to avoid sugar all together. If at all you. Have to take, sugar can be taken in small quantities.

I am 28 year old and suffering from hypothyroid since last 6 years, please suggest me somethng.

MBBS, DNB (General Medicine)
Endocrinologist, Delhi
I am 28 year old and suffering from hypothyroid since last 6 years, please suggest me somethng.
Dear lybrate-user, hypothyroidism is the suboptimal functioning of your thyroid gland. The hormone which is produced is in less quantity than what is required by the body. This hormone is very important for the normal functioning of many things-and that is why underfunctioning of this gland leads to far-reaching disturbances in the body. Some of the symptoms that you suffer because of hypothyroidism are increased tiredness, hair fall, constipation, dry skin, decreased libido etc. The simple rule here is that the hormone is deficient or less in quantity. So the simple solution is to supplement this hormone in the body. The the medicine that is given to you in hypothyroidism is actually a supplement of this hormone only. Which basically means that we are replacing the decreased quantity of this hormone by giving it in the form of a tablet. So all you need to do to save yourself from the ill effects of hypothyroidism is to just take one tablet a day that replaces your decreased hormone and keeps you fit and healthy. Regards.
