What Are The Common Causes And Symptoms Of Diabetes?

What Are The Common Causes And Symptoms Of Diabetes?

The food we eat contains energy which is stored as glucose in the body. This glucose is then converted into back into energy with the help of a hormone called insulin. A lack of insulin in the body or an inability to use the insulin is known as diabetes. There are two types of diabetes mellitus; type 1 and type 2. These diseases cannot be cured but with medication, correct nutrition and weight management, they can be controlled so as to not affect your quality of life.

Type 1 diabetes is a lifelong condition and usually, begins in childhood. This is an autoimmune condition and makes the pancreas stop producing insulin. Some probable causes of type 1 diabetes are:

  1. Family history of diabetes

  2. Pancreatic diseases

  3. Other infections and diseases that can affect the pancreas.

Between the two, type 2 diabetes is more common. Type 2 diabetes is also known as insulin resistance and can affect a person at any stage in life. However, it is more common amongst men and women above the age of 45. Ethnicity also plays an important role here with African Americans, Latino Americans, Asian Americans and Hispanic people being more vulnerable to this disease. In this case, the body does produce insulin but either this amount is insufficient or the body is resistant to the insulin. Some factors that can trigger this condition are:

  1. Obesity

  2. High blood pressure

  3. Sedentary lifestyle

  4. Polycystic ovary syndrome

  5. Family history of diabetes

  6. Low levels of good cholesterol and high levels of triglycerides

  7. Presence of cells that are resistant to insulin

  8. Prediabetes or glucose intolerance

The most common symptoms of type 1 and type 2 diabetes are:

  1. Increased urination

  2. Excessive thirst and increased appetite

  3. Weight loss

  4. Fatigue

  5. Wounds that are slow to heal

  6. Yeast infections

  7. Numbness and tingling sensations in the toes

  8. Dry skin

  9. Blurred vision

  10. Nausea and vomiting

Another common type of diabetes is known as gestational diabetes Gestational diabetes affects pregnant women. It is caused by the over or under production of insulin by the placenta. Gestational diabetes can affect the health and growth of the baby is not treated in time. This condition usually resolves itself after the baby is delivered but it can put the mother at an increased risk of suffering from type 2 diabetes. Some factors that can trigger this condition are:

  1. Obesity

  2. Glucose intolerance

  3. Family history of diabetes

  4. Pregnancy after the age of 30 

    If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an endocrinologist.

I have diabetes. I purchased nutrichoice oats biscuits . In that it was written that zero sugar added, but when I ate that , I found it sweet, although it was written that zero sugar added and good for diabetic , but then also it was sweet . So I want to know that can I eat that in sugar?

Whenever you buy any packed food always read labels especially the ingredients. They have not added any sugar but they have added some sugar substitute like sucralose, aspartame, etc etc. That is the reason you can feel the sweetness. Do not do any kind of biscuits, they are not good for health as they have maida and trans fat and some have sugar. It is not advisable for diabetic or non diabetic.

Heredity play a role in diabetes. There is no age restriction. It can affect children, young adults also. Reduce your weight to the ideal weight as per your height and avoid excess sugar/ carbohydrate/ high calorie diet.

I am 36 years old I have diabetes since 3 moths I have cut marks on my penis I am facing problems to pull my foreskin back please suggest me medicine for diabetes and my penis.

What are your fasting, pp sugar levels and hba1c%? if diabetes is in check then such problems normally do not develop. Plus you are obese with a bmi of 35.92kg/m2 (normal <23kg/m2). Unless you work on weight reduction it is difficult to control sugar and consequent problems. On the penis the marks are due to (possibly) fungal infection, take tab gocan 150 once a week for 8 weeks and also apply candid b cream locally twice a day. One way to take care of your excess weight is to consider bariatric surgery. Which will also control diabetes too.

My father is a diabetic patient from the past 10 years. He is a heart patient and has Bb also. Now he is taking Glimestar-M2 (metformin hydrochloride with glimepiride 2 mg) for sugar. Though he is doing regular walking and taking proper diet sugar level seem to be uncontrolled. Before food -211 mg after food - 289 mg.

Apart from all lifestyle modifications if the patient is under stress, tension and strain, blood glucose levels will not be under control. So try asking him to meditate, deep breathing exercises etc. Also the result varies from ran to person. Consume Fresubin DM supplement 2 scoops in 200 ml low fat milk at 10 am and 10 pm daily until sugar levels are controlled.

My son is 3 years 11 months old, and have been suffering from high diabetes 600+, though no member in our family or my wife's have diabetes. Doctor's saying his body is not generating insulin and he will have to keep taking insulin 2 times a day daily lifelong. Is there any cure, please advice.

It's juvenile diabetes. If insulin not formed or if formed but inactive then to maintain the sugar level one has to take the medications.

You should not start medicines at the first instance. Try to cut down weight if overweight. Do regular exercise. Avoid oily and carbohydrate rich food. Repeat blood sugar after 1 month.

Hi doctor I am a diabetic, take medicines for it and do exercise too. But now I don't want to take medicines because of side effect threat. Please tell me an exercise which is helpful to prevent diabetes.

MBBS, MD
Endocrinologist, Delhi
All types of exercises like walking, yoga etc if done in moderation, are good for diabetes but avoiding medicine if not suggested by a qualified doctor is not a good idea. I agree with you that medicines have side effects but if you take them under supervision they can be recognized and medicine may be changed accordingly.

Hi doc have tested my blood sugar today the result has been good fasting sugar has gone down to 115 nd PP is 215. How do I control after eating as I just had 2 eggs with bread sandwiches. Medication im taking is Glycomet Gp2 500 mg twice before meals nd tab januvia 100 mg bedtime. Please advice.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Mr Ankur, Thanks for the query. Good control is considered when FBG is <100 mg, PP is 150 to 160 mg & HbA1c%<6.8. (which is not mentioned). Your levels are still high. To bring down to desired values, you will have to give careful look at your diet and exercise. Bread (bakery items ) should be totally avoided. You may have to increase the intake of green leafy vegetables and salads. Plus take exact amount of calories based on your weight and physical activity. Thanks.

I am 58 and last year diagnosed to be diabetic. I am taking Glycomet GP 0.5 and Felicitations OD, both one tab daily. Should I take these medicines for whole life or should I stop these after sugar level is maintained under control limits? Almost daily I go on walk and take almost controlled diet.

It is important to keep HbA1c <7%. This should be tested 3 monthly. If it is less than &% you can try reducing your medicines after consulting the doctor. Yes it is possible for some people to stop medicines if their blood glucose control is good. Fasting glucose should preferably be <110 mg/dl and 2h post meal glucose should be preferably <160 mg/dl.

I am suffering from Uric acid from last 15 months. Please guide me how to cure. Now present result as per report is 7.1 mg %.

PDDM, MHA, MBBS
General Physician, Nashik
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 500 mg 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.

My mom aged 50 years has high TSH levels=9.4. She has been taking THYROX-50 for sometime. Sometimes, mainly during night, she feels uneasy, she feels as if she can't breathe. Her feet get cold. We usually give her a massage of oil to her feet, cover her legs with a bedsheets and speed up the ceiling fan to its full extent. This generally calms her down. We also apply Navratna oil to her hair and give her electrolytes to drink, which makes her stable. So what exactly is happening to mom? Even the doctors she has consulted are not able to exactly identify her condition. So please suggest me some remedies.

according to tsh 9.4 give her tab. thyrox 100 mcg. and give her diet in hypothyroidism:- high-carbohydrate foods such as potatoes, rice, pasta and bread, 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. flax oil, 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 few foods in hypothroidism i.e. caffeine products tea,coffee, tabcco, alcohol / wine , kale, broccoli, spinach, mustard green, cabbage, turnip, millet, cassava, linseeds, pine nuts, soy products as soy milk, tofu, soybeans, soy souce, also avoid stress. Take Some Relax during work. Proper follow up you can feel better and control weight also.

Critical Care Training, MD - Internal Medicine, MBBS
General Physician, Delhi
Hello, if u remove thyroid then u will have to take it for life time, if u have hypothyroidism and taking thyronorm, u have to check s. Tsh monthly initially then 3 monthly and then 6 monthly and then annually if s. Tsh is stabilized at fixed dose of thyronorm. Dose can be decreased depending on tsh level but can not be omitted unless maintained on minimim dose.

Hello, Although you are more prone to catching infections but there should be a possible cause of repeated penis infections. Take Echinaecea 1x, 2 tablets once daily after lunch for 1 month to clear off the infection.
