I am 58 years old, male, with Schizophrenia since 10 years. At the present moment, I am put on Amisant 200 mg 0-0-1 and Sizopin 100 mg 0-0-1. I intend to replace Amisant with Sizodon plus 0-0-1, because, I have positive symptoms of Schizophrenia, like hallucinations etc, where Amisant is found wanting. I will take this decision only after consulting my psychiatrist, whom I am meeting on Monday next. Kindly remember that I am not taking independent decisions and i am not self-medicating myself. In the mean time, kindly advice whether the combination of Sizodon plus and Sizopin relieve both positive and negative symptoms of Schizophrenia?

Yes it can..see all meds target both positive and negative symptoms..respinse in terms of positive symptoms is better for all of them.Among meds sizopin and amisant are better than others.If you really want to improve negative symptoms you need more than meds and then also some deficits will always remain..Your new combination is fine but remember the combination of amisant and sizopin is among the best for negative symptoms.In the end goal is to take as few meds as possible..

Mr. Lybrate-user, if blood sugar levels are not in control, causing hyperglycemia, then there is considerable loss of glucose through urine. This leads to weight loss. Once blood sugar is well controlled, weight loss can be prevented. Being a diabetic person you have to take a restricted diet, that provide exact calories based on the daily need. Some additional proteins can be considered which along with regular exercise to build muscles and weight. Joining a gym should be beneficial. But blood sugar levels should be fasting about 100 mg and pp 150 to 160 mg and hba1c%<7. With regards.

Type 1 and Type 2 Diabetes - Symptoms + Treatment

MBBS, MD - Medicine, ACLS, POST GRADUATE COURSE IN RHEUMATOLOGY

Type 1 and Type 2 Diabetes - Symptoms + Treatment

There are a number of lifestyle ailments that plague people around the world. Cardiovascular diseases, high cholesterol, hypertension and diabetes are just a few of them. Diabetes means your blood sugar level, called glucose, is too high. Blood glucose is the main kind of sugar found in your blood and is supposed to be your main source of energy. Glucose originates from the food that you eat and is additionally made in your liver and muscles. Your blood supplies glucose to the rest of your body's cells to use as a source of energy.

Your pancreas are situated between your stomach and spine. It assists with absorption of glucose from food and discharges a hormone called insulin, into your blood. Insulin helps your blood transport glucose to all your body's cells. In some cases your body doesn't make enough insulin or the insulin doesn't work the way it ought to. Glucose then stays in your blood and doesn't reach your cells.

The signs and symptoms of diabetes are as follows:

  1. Being extremely thirsty

  2. Urinating regularly

  3. Feeling hungry

  4. Feeling tired

  5. Getting thinner without attempting

  6. Wounds that mend gradually

  7. Dry, bothersome skin

  8. Feeling of pins and needles in your feet

  9. Losing sensation in your feet

  10. Hazy vision

Type 1 diabetes is found mostly in youngsters. In type 1 diabetes, your body does not make insulin or enough insulin because of the the body's vulnerable immune system. It protects you from contamination by getting rid of bacteria, infections, and other destructive substances.

Treatment for type 1 Diabetes:

  1. Taking regular injections of insulin

  2. Medicines as prescribed by the specialist

  3. Healthy food choices

  4. Being physically active

  5. Controlling your circulatory strain levels. Circulatory strain is the pressure of blood flow inside your veins.

  6. Controlling cholesterol levels

Type 2 diabetes can influence individuals at any age. It is known to affect moderately aged and elderly individuals. People who are overweight and inert are more prone to type 2 Diabetes.

Type 2 diabetes normally starts with insulin resistance, a condition that happens when fat, muscle and liver cells do not utilise insulin to supply glucose to the body's cells to draw energy. Accordingly, the body needs more insulin to help glucose enter the cells. At such an instance, the pancreas start producing more insulin. Over the long haul, the pancreas do not make enough insulin when glucose levels increase, for example, after meals. If your pancreas can no more make enough insulin, you should treat your type 2 diabetes.

Treatment for type 2 Diabetes:

  1. Utilising diabetes prescriptions

  2. Settling on solid food decisions

  3. Being physically active

  4. Controlling your circulatory strain levels

  5. Controlling your cholesterol levels

  6. Weight loss is the most important if you are overweight. Avoid junk food and sugar, exercise regularly and take medicines on-time. 

  7. Regular follow-up to a physician is important

    If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.

Hello, firstly get her to see a gynaec right away to confirm the pregnancy. Who wud then refer her to any endocrinologist for her sugars and thyroid levels. She wud probably be asked to stop sitagliptin as itz unsafe in pregnancy but please do this only after seeing the doctor as he wud put you on alternative meds. Her thyroid wud be checked again. But please visit the doctors as therez a risk to the baby also with this sugar level and meds.

I'm 43 years old male diabetic having problem under my foot feeling burning sensation under foot.
Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. If you have been having diabetes for a long time, then there is a possibility of developing peripheral neuropathy, which causes burning pain in the feet as well as tingling and numbness. Because of long standing diabetes that particularly if blood glucose is not well controlled then such symptoms are bound to occur. Ideally in diabetes blood glucose levels should be maiintained in following manner: FBG:<100 mg, PP 150 to 160 mg & HbA1c% <6.8. If one does not achieve these levels consistently then neuropathy is more likely to develop early. Thanks.

Mr. Lybrate-user, your present bmi is 25.94 kgs/m2 which is showing you are just over weight. Your ideal body weight should be 77 kgs, which means there is just 5 kgs extra weight. You can definitely control your weight by strictly planning the diet and exercise schedule. If you give me your exact diet from morning till dinner of a routine day, plus of a holiday and your exercise routine.

Hypothyroidism is condition which needs to be treated for life time with thyroxine tablets, as mentioned by you. This is a hormone deficiency condition, can only be treated by replacing that hormone from outside. Foods to avoid include soya and soya containing products, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, mustard and coffee. Consume more green vegetables (other than mentioned), fruits, use whole grain flour for breads (rotis), use more of onions garlic.
