I am suffering with Diabetics which got it form Pregnancy and not cured still.please help

I am suffering with Diabetics which got it form Pregnancy and not cured still.please help
Dear lybrate user, first of all I would like to correct you when you say that you got diabetes from pregnancy. It is not like that you got diabetes from pregnancy but your diabetes got manifested or reflected when you were pregnant. This is known as gestational diabetes. Some of the patients of gestational diabetes revert back to normal straight after pregnancy is over but some of the patients they remain as diabetics. Diabetes cannot be cured it can only be treated. You should understand that you should treat yourself like any other diabetic patient-take care of your diet exercise and medicines and that is the only thing that is going to help you. Pregnancy is essentially state of stress in human body. Just like other bodily stresses in pregnancy also diabetes surfaces in our body if we have got a predisposition to it. Hope my answer helps you.

Diabetic Nephropathy - How Can It Be Managed?

M.D. Internal Medicine
Endocrinologist, Mumbai
Diabetic Nephropathy - How Can It Be Managed?

Diabetes is not an isolated disease but a syndrome. It brings with it a host of issues, affecting almost all organs, and that is the reason it is a dreaded issue. Diabetes is the result of chronic inflammation and this inflammation gradually spreads to all other organs. One of the main organs adversely affected is the kidneys. The kidneys are essential filtration agents, and impaired kidney function can have a series of bad effects on the body.

The good news is that not everybody with diabetes will have diabetic nephropathy. However, risk factors for developing diabetic nephropathy are:

  1. Severe, uncontrolled diabetes
  2. Family history
  3. Prior kidney disease, even chronic infection
  4. Race or ethnicity (native Americans, African Americans, etc.)
  5. Preexisting hypertension or high cholesterol levels
  6. Obesity

If you have these risk factors, then all efforts should be aimed at keeping blood sugar at highly optimal level. Once it reaches beyond a certain level, it is very difficult to get it under control.

Symptoms

There would be no symptoms in the initial stages

  1. If you suspect that increased sugar levels could be damaging the kidneys, it is imperative to do renal functions annually to test for onset of kidney malfunction
  2. There could be swelling of the feet and ankles
  3. Urine tests may indicate increased levels of protein in the body (serum albumin in particular)

Management

The idea is to arrest or stop damage to the kidneys.

  1. Reduce and maintain blood pressure within the recommended levels. This will depend on the age and overall health status. Using angiotensin converting enzymes or angiotensin receptor blockers is the most effective way to control hypertension and related kidney damage
  2. Keeping blood sugar within the recommended levels helps reduce or stop damage to the blood vessels in the kidneys and thereby, prevent progression
  3. Maintain optimal levels of cholesterol, as this only adds to hypertension, which further worsens kidney function.
  4. Eat a heart-healthy diet and exercise regularly. It is a vicious cycle with components including hypertension, high sugar levels, increased heart disease, which all only continues in a circle nonstop. Breaking this cyclical trend is very important.
  5. Diet should not be too rich in protein, as the kidney function is impaired and may not be able to handle too much protein. Talk to a nutritionist as to how much protein is required and follow it strictly.
  6. Reduce salt levels in the diet, and strictly do not add extra salt onto your plate
  7. If you are a smoker, this is a great reason to quit, as it affects all the above conditions.
  8. Maintain weight under optimal levels.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

My mother in law aging 73 years has bp and diabetes since very long and has been taking medicine regularly for the same. Last week, she started feeling weak and cramps in legs. 8 days ago, she consulted a physician for the same, e checked the bp and it was 238/110. The doctor has given lasix inj immediately and advised to take lots of fluids and there will be frequent urination after the injection. Within 1.5 hrs of taking that injection she started vomiting. It continued for a day and she became very weak though we have been giving her electoral regularly. Her bp was fluctuating from 190 to 220 for 2 days and she collapsed on 3rd day having seizures. We have taken her to the hospital immediately and the next day it was diagnosed as PRES. Sodium levels were dropped to 97. So the have given sodium for 2 days. She is in ICU now, are the vitals are showing good but still she did not get consciousness. She is able to open her eyes from last 2 days but not looking straight at us neither recognizing or responding to anyone. Doctors are saying it will take time to recover but till now there are no signs of improvement what should we do? What is the general recovery time for this case. What are the improvements we can expect and the timelines? what are the other impacts post recovery? please advise, Thanks a lot!

With 10 years of diabetes you should better start a long acting insulin simultaneously with oral medicines. Make a glucose F and PP chart of 5 to 7 days and meet a diabetes Physician personally.

Get doctor consult as soon as possible. Get yourself checked for fasting pp sugar and hba1c. Remember diabetes is a silent killer when not detected. Once detected. You can very easily keep the complications at bay with good glucose control.
