I have hypo thyroid (past 7 years), since 2 weeks I am having joint pains. Is that related and what should I do?
I am 65 years old and suffering from diabetes since 20 yrs. Recently I was admitted to hospital with my sugar levels 400. There I was diagnosis with BP.
It is told that a person with diabetes should avoid potatoes. Want to know if sweet potato can be taken instead.
My wife aged 52 years is suffering from hbp since 1988 and from dm since 2008. Her sugar is uncontrolled at present. All sorts of tablets and insulin given to her does not show any result. Earlier she was taking basalog injection 20 units at bed time alongwith trejenta=duo 8. 5/1000 and gemer forte tablets. At present she is taking novo-mix 30 insulin 24 units before breakfast and 16 units before dinner. She is also taking tab-glucobay-m 25/500. For hbp she is taking olsartan-h-40 and cd-pin in morning and met-xl-50 in evening. Her weight is 49 kgs. There is no family history for hbp or dm. Her latest reports are fbs-278 and pp2bs-380. Hba1c 12. 7. Doctors say that she is having insulin-toxicity. Diet is being followed strictly. Even though we are not getting any positive results. We are confused and worried where to go and what to do. If you can advice in the case, it will be a great help. Thanks.
My blood glucose fluctuates from 140 n goes up to 300-400 so my doc prescribed on insulin and now its 140-250 highest but today evening I checked my sugar on empty stomach. Its was 87 .is this normal or not? Pls help. Thankyou.
At present 3 out of the 5 people are suffering from diabetes and it is the 7th leading cause of death worldwide. Moreover, it is no more restricted just to adults and affects children as well. Diabetes is a metabolic disease resulting in increase in the level of glucose in the body. Glucose is a source of energy for the cells making up the muscles and other tissues in the body. But if the level of glucose goes up, it shows the sign of danger. Diabetes is of 2 types:
- Type 1: Body fails to produce insulin.
- Type 2: Body fails to produce enough insulin which is required by the body.
There are no definite signs of diabetes. It simply varies from person to person. In many of the cases it goes unnoticed. Such signs are as follows:
- Sudden weight loss: You might experience a sudden weight loss of 5 to 10 kgs within a month. This happens when sugar metabolism ceases very quickly. Insufficient insulin prevents the body from taking in glucose in the body cells from the blood to use as energy. In such a scenario the body starts burning fat and muscle for energy. This results in weight loss.
- Intense hunger: The cells in your body might not get enough energy either due to absence or improper functioning of insulin in your blood. This makes you hungry quite often.
- Excessive urination and thirst: Due to diabetes, the glucose level in the body goes up. The kidneys are overloaded with the burden of working overtime for filtering and absorbing the excess glucose in your body. The excess sugar, which the kidney cannot store is excreted out of your body. This makes you urinate frequently. Due to frequent urination the body gets dehydrated which makes you feel thirsty more often.
- Blurred vision: Due to the high level of glucose in your body tissues gets pulled away from the lens of the eyes. This results in vision issues. If not treated on time, it may even lead to blindness.
- Increased fatigue: The cells in your body might not get enough energy either due to absence or improper functioning of insulin in your blood. This makes you restless more often and you may even feel too weak to do your regular activities.
If you notice any of these signs, get the level of sugar in your checked and take the required remedies. It is good to get it treated as early as possible rather than facing immense trouble in future. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a endocrinologist and ask a free question.
