Sugar or more appropriately glucose is the only energy currency of the body. Without glucose, the first cells that get effected in the body are brain cells which cannot withstand the deficiency of glucose for even 15 minutes. We believe that whatever sugar that rises or falls in our blood is related only to the food that we have eaten immediately. This is partially true because our body keeps on storing surplus glucose and also creates its own glucose in the liver, when such a need arises. When we fast, the gates of such glucose stores are opened by the body so that our cells don's die out of starvation. When you took a small meal- it was not just the contribution of that meal but also your glucose stores that made that 124 mg rise!

Enlarged fatty liver with diabetes and high alcohol consumption will lead to liver failure sooner than you can imagine. So first, get a handle on the situation by cutting your alcohol consumption. Alcohol is going to stress out your liver and its going to become more and more enlarged and then will shrink itself to cirrhosis. You are 36 years- there is still a lot in your hands to change. Sadly, once liver failure will set in- it will be point of no return.

See one thing we don't know generally is, it is not like we see in movies that a single time unprotected sexual intercourse in fertile period of woman makes her pregnant, actually scientifically whole human race have only 20-25% fertility chances to get pregnancy even if both partners are completely normal & had sex every single day of the fertile period. So ideally it is advisable to wait & keep try for 1 year, only after that you should consult about infertility. Even though, meanwhile you can rule out major causes of infertility after 4-6 months like semen analysis of male partner at your convenient pathological lab & sonography of female partner for any anatomical deformity of uterus, pcod or others & also do blood test of female partner like tsh, cbc, urine routine micro, rbs to be sure. Also you should know when to have sex: considering 28 days of average menses cycle with day 1 as first day of last menses period, normally 10th day to 20th day are considered fertile period, every alternate day sex between 10th day to 20th day of cycle is ideal to get pregnancy.

You don't have high blood pressure at the moment, but it is slightly above optimal. Single readings are not diagnostic. Optimal BP is <120/80. It would be wise to adopt a healthy lifestyle, such as eating healthily, reduce salt in your diet, exercise, lose weight if overweight, limit alcohol consumption and stop smoking if you smoke. The good thing about exercise is that it reduces the strain on the heart and also raises your HDL (good cholesterol) as well as improving circulation. Now with regards to exercise, the best type of exercise for the heart is aerobic activity which ensures the large groups of muscles in the body get a good work out. Swimming is good, as is brisk walking, dancing and cycling, etc. With regards to diet, as I mentioned before, limit salt consumption and the amount of saturated fats you eat. Also limit the amount of complex carbs you eat. Try and eat 5 portions of fruit and vegetables per day * and also try and eat 3 portions of oily fish per week. Try and avoid frying your food, grill it instead. Switch to olive oil. The key is moderation, you can eat anything you like providing you don't go OTT. * A recent study showed that eating your "5 a day" fruit and vegetables may not cut the cancer risk. Many people have interpreted this study into meaning that eating your "5 a day" fruit and vegetables isn't beneficial at all and that what Doctors and Nurses have been advising patients is incorrect. This isn't accurate. The study just looked at the diet-cancer link (which we already knew wasn't very strong anyway), it didn't look at the other health benefits that eating fruit and vegetables has. But that study has certainly given the alties and their "special cancer curing diet" food for thought! There are various causes of high blood pressure, but proper diet and regular exercise are definitely the biggest part of the equation. “ Actually there are two types, essential and secondary, the latter accounts for about 5% of cases and can be caused by kidney and/or hormone issues. Most people have “essential” hypertension where the cause is less than clear. We know that a poor diet, obesity, excess alcohol, smoking and lack of exercise are major risk factors. Diet and lifestyle changes often helps and is sometimes enough to keep patients off anti-hypertensive medication.

Increased uric acid level causes Gout. There are many drugs available in market which reduce the uric acid level in blood. But before I go for any drug I would like you to consult your physician as Gout causes very painful and swollen joints which later interfere with your daily activity. Sometimes it may even bring deformity in joints. So I suggest you to get the complete health check up done before you start any medication. Note: health is wealth.

Can you suggest homeopathic medicines to maintain T3, T4, TSH levels within normal limits?

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Can you suggest homeopathic medicines to maintain T3, T4, TSH levels within normal limits?
Mr Anil Sathe, To my knowledge, only medication that helps a person with hypothyroidism is taking thyroxinee tablets, which your wife is doing. By taking appropriate dosage TSH levels can be kept under check (near 3 to 4 milli unit/ml). Thyroxine tablet that is being given is actually T4 hormone, which deficient in hypothyroidism. So apart frm this there is no need for any other medication. Thyroxine (T4 ) is converted to T3 in the cells and tissues where it acts.

Reduce your oil/ghee intake, reduce fried items and non-veg foods. Avoid starchy foods like potato, rice, etc. Increase your fiber intake by increasing your green leafy vegetables. Fish, flax seeds, citrus fruits, sprouts will all help in reducing your cholesterol.

Diabetic Nephropathy - Who is at Risk of Acquiring it?

MBBS, MD - Medicine, DM - Nephrology
Nephrologist, Delhi
Diabetic Nephropathy - Who is at Risk of Acquiring it?

Diabetes is a lifestyle disease that is very prevalent in the current generation. According to a report by the World Health Organisation (WHO), the number of people with diabetes has risen from 108 million in 1980 to 422 million in 2014. The global prevalence of diabetes among adults over 18 years of age has risen from 4.7% to 8.5% from 1980 to 2014. Diabetes should not be taken lightly as it can affect other body organs besides the pancreas, such as the kidneys. Diabetic nephropathy refers to damage to your kidneys caused by diabetes, and may also lead to kidney failure in various cases.

Causes of diabetic nephropathy
Not everyone who suffers from diabetes will suffer from diabetic nephropathy. The main function of the kidneys is to filter waste from your blood. However, this is not always the case. Due to high a concentration of blood sugar caused by diabetes, several blood vessels in the kidney are destroyed, thereby, preventing the kidneys from carrying out its job. Over time, the kidneys may stop working altogether, resulting in kidney failure. If you are diabetic, the probability of you suffering from diabetic nephropathy will increase if you smoke or have high blood pressure or high cholesterol.

Catching it early
Today, diabetic nephropathy is the leading cause of chronic kidney disease in the US and other western countries. Since the symptoms of this condition aren’t visible in its early stages, you need to undergo urine tests on a regular basis. If detected early, the effects of diabetic nephropathy can be reversed. Common symptoms of this disease include the following:

  • Swelling in legs and feet
  • Detection of albumin in urine
  • Decline in glomerular filtration rate (GFR)
  • Elevated arterial blood pressure

What are the treatment options?
Medication to lower the blood pressure is the most commonly prescribed form of treatment suggested by doctors to prevent or slow the damage to your kidneys. There are other lifestyle changes that you may have to undertake in order to keep a check on the condition:

  • Limit sugar intake and keep blood sugar levels within the target range
  • Exercise regularly and work towards keeping your heart healthy
  • Limit protein intake, as it could put extra pressure on your kidneys
  • Limit salt intake to control blood pressure
  • Quit smoking and drinking

Diabetes is an unfortunate condition to have to live with. But don’t let it bog you down! With these simple lifestyle changes and taking care of your general well-being, you can beat the disease and emerge a winner!
