You should be able to distinguish between disappointment and depression. Disappointment also brings on symptoms identical to depression but they are short lived. Your mother troubled with disappointment and therefore all these trouble. Motivate her. Please post a private question to me with every detail. I will help you. Take care.

Skin Problems - Can Diabetes be the Reason Behind It?

Skin Problems - Can Diabetes be the Reason Behind It?

Skin is known as the largest organ in the human body. It covers us from top to toe. A healthy skin can slow down the aging process and prevent skin problems.

Diabetes is a metabolic disorder, chiefly caused by insulin fluctuation in the body. A study shows that, 1 out of 3 people suffering from diabetes are likely to develop a skin condition sooner or later.

Here are skin conditions that affect diabetics:

  1. Fungal infections: People who have diabetes have an increased risk of contracting the fungal infection, especially the one known as Candida Albicans. The fungus tends to create a red, itchy rash, which is surrounded by blisters and scales. These are usually found in warm places of the body like the armpits, or between the fingers of the hand or perhaps even the toes. Common fungal infections in diabetic people include athlete's foot, jock itch and ringworm.
  2. Skin problems related to neuropathy: Diabetes can be the cause of nerve damage in some cases; and neuropathy is a common symptom of diabetes. This type of damage can cause a loss of sensation in a part of the body. On event of an injury, one may not be able to feel it. As a result, an open sore or wound, if left unattended, can develop into an infection.
  3. Bacterial infection: Although anyone can get a bacterial infection, people suffering from diabetes are likelier to contract them. Usual bacterial skin problems that tend to trouble diabetics are boils, lumps near the eyelids, nail infections and carbuncles. Diabetics are also prone to infections deep in the skin and of the underlying tissues. The affected area is usually warm, red and swollen.
  4. Tingling and itching: Among the many causes of itching, diabetes is one. Yeast infection, dry skin and poor circulation are the primary causes of itching among patients of diabetes. Usually, the lower part of the leg tends to itch the most, if poor circulation is to be blamed.
  5. Acanthosis nigricans: Acanthosis nigricans is the condition where diabetics get darkening of skin leading to skin tags around neck and armpits.

With controlled levels of sugar, you can drink mausambi juice. But do not add sugar to it. Use sugar free tabs instead of sugar.

You are more than 10 kg over weight for your height. Reducing your three principle meals that is breakfast, lunch and dinner by 10% each will help you in weight reduction. Dividing your meals in small frequent portion sizes will get your post lunch sugars under control. Reduce your oil consumption not more than 3 teaspoon per day and introduces more fiber in the form of salad, vegetables, dal, sprouts, fruits, soups may help in weight reduction.

How to prevent from diabetes and symptom, please reply.

CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology, MBBS
Endocrinologist,
How to prevent from diabetes and symptom, please reply.
t2dm is considered as a preventable disease and prevention is only possible if one adheres to a strictly modified lifestyle. This means regular exercise for more than 1 h a day, no excess fat intake, particularly avoiding deep fried foods, no sweets and direct sugar, maintaining near normal weight (ideal body weight = height in cms - 100 x 0.9 = kgs), taking a restricted diet in line with daily need in relation to ibw and physical activity. Normally diabetes hardly produces any symptoms, but in case of fully developed situation it may cause excess thirst, excessive urination, excessive hunger and excess eating, with all this person may still loose weight and there may lassitude and tiredness.

Thyroid is a gland which secrets hormones. Either increased or decreased levels are found in diseased condition. Generally fat fertile female of age forty are considered to be prone to this. Your headache may be due to acidity which is disturbing your abdomen. Regularize your diet, sleep and exercise avoid tension. Some simple antacids may help. Regards.

I think you should never give up mentally. Your body can be pushed more than what you are currently doing with it. You can join a Yoga class or get a Yoga instructor to your home. Also go to the park daily in the morning and evening and try to walk for 30 mins. Even if you are using walker, does not matter, but keep your limbs active as much as possible. Use 1 liter water bottle as dumbells to strengthen your arms. Eat whole grain or multigrain atta rotis. Eat fruits like apple, papaya. Eat dals, beans, mushrooms, lobia etc. Aim to live healthy for at least 50 years more. Life is precious! Never give up!

I'm a sugar patient, frequently I'm getting (every month) acidity. How do I get rid of it?

I'm a sugar patient, frequently I'm getting (every month) acidity. How do I get rid of it?
Mr. Lybrate-user, hyperacidity may be occurring either due to food habits, smoking, alcohol, excess tea or coffee. At times remaining on empty stomach for long time also can cause that. To reduce acidity you may take small quantity of food more frequently (every 2 - 3 hrs), total intake not exceed the recommended daily allowance. Plus avoiding all the above mentioned triggers. Exercise also helps in controlling acidity. There are antacids and other drugs which may be useful. Some times a bacterium h pylori could be also responsible. Plus good control of diabetes is also very important.

How is your sugar control. You can definitely go ahead with your surgery provided the sugar control is good. You have to understand that everything is inter related. Bad sugars lead to bad teeth (infection) and bad teeth can lead to bad sugars so check your hba1c and fasting sugars.
