I am 48 years old. I am taking Istamet (50/500) tab twice daily since last 3 years for my sugar problem. Is this medicine safe and perfect? I want to be assured.

Mr p k mishra, istamet is a good combination in treating t2 diabetes, provided it is bringing your sugar levels to desired values. The combination is as safe as any other oral anti diabetic drug. And about being perfect, well there is no drug which is perfect except probably insulin injections. If your disease is well controlled and hba1c % is around 6.5% then you should continue the same. Along with this exercise and restricted diet are equally important and not to be over looked.

Meet your Endocrinologist to assess as he has seen and advised earlier. You have to be monitored, weight and symptoms and ofcourse Thyroid Harmone estimation. Avoid self medication. All the best. God bless you.

Dear lybrate user with the limited amount of information provided it appears that your mother is suffering from diabetes. It could had been better had you provided us with latest fasting sugars, hba1c levels and any other recent relevant investigations along with the complete medication list if she is taking any. For the successful treatment of diabetes it is advised if you can start exercising on a regular basis preferably 30-45 minutes, diet modifications with low carbohydrate and high fibre diet along with medications as advised. Hope that solves your query. Anything more then please feel free to revert.

Hi lybrate user firstly, start doing surya namaskar in morning and start eating triphla chooran (natural medicine) in morning empty stomach with luke warm water. Start a fruit dieting every alternative day, means you have to eat fruits every alternative days & normal fruit every other alternative days. Avoid late night dinners and try to eat nothing after sunset. Sit in vajrasana after every meal you eat for 10 minutes. Walk atleast 30 min in morning.

Causes, Risk and Treatment of Infertility

MS - Obstetrics and Gynaecology, MBBS, Post Doctoral Fellowship in Reproductive Medicine, Fellowship in Minimal Access Surgery
Gynaecologist, Pune
Causes, Risk and Treatment of Infertility

Infertility is a condition where a couple, trying to conceive in a natural way is not able to do so even after one year of trying. It is also a matter of worry for patients who are over the age of 35 years and those who are not able to conceive naturally even after 12 months of trying constantly. So here are the causes, risks and treatment for this condition.

Causes

There are many causes of infertility. It may be down to a condition present in one or both partners. As per a medical study, 20% of the cases of infertility are due to males, while 40% to 50% cases are due to problems in the female partner. 30% of the cases suffer from infertility due to problems in both males and females. 

Ovulation and fertilisation are the main elements of the conception process and any condition in the female or male can upset either function, which can make it difficult to conceive. While abnormal sperm production and transport may be a common condition that leads to infertility in males, other factors like side effects of cancer treatments and too much exposure to toxins and chemicals can also play an important role in this regard. 

For females, the causes of infertility may range from ovulation disorders, uterine and fibroid tumours, uterine and cervical anomalies, damage to or blockage of the fallopian tubes, endometriosis, primary ovarian insufficiency and pelvic adhesions. Also, factors like thyroid, cancer and medication leading to temporary infertility may be at play. 

Risks: 

There are a number of factors that put a male or a female at risk of infertility. Being in your mid 30s usually has an adverse effect on the ovulation and production of well functioning sperm. Further, smoking and tobacco are among the main causes of infertility in either partner. Excessive alcohol consumption may also lead to this problem. Being overweight or underweight can also make a person infertile. Further, not getting enough exercise and routine activities out of your day, can lead to this condition as well. 

Treatment: 

Male patients can go through a treatment for any existing infections, hormonal injections and medication, surgical options like vasectomy reversal and ART or assistive reproductive technology. Female patients can turn to medication that will stimulate ovulation, Intrauterine Insemination, and surgical processes to correct a uterine septum and remove endometrial polyps, or even a hysteroscopy surgery. 
If these methods fail, the patient or the couple can always turn to methods like In Vitro Fertilisation. For other mild reasons, lifestyle changes along with a stress free environment can help in increasing the chances of conception.

Mr Somnath, There are a few things you can do : 1) Diet control has to be very strict, total intake has to be regulated so that exact caloric need is met, and no extra food is taken in. 2) Patient has to exercise daily for at least 1 hour, brisk walking is best. 3) Avoid sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods and pastries. Also avoid sweetened aerated drinks, fruit juices(packed), ghee, butter and high fat cheese. 4) She has to consume green leafy vegetables, salads and permitted fruits (100 g a day). 5) Monitor her fasting, PP and at times predinner sugar levels to adjust Insulin dosage. The above routine has to be strictly followed. If you need any specific advice please come in a private conversation with details like fasting and PP levels, HbA1c%, type of insulin taken with dosage, dietary pattern and extent of daily exercises. Then I will be able to guide specifically. All the best.

What time to take diabetes medicine in the day? Is diabetics totally cure by medicine?
Hello, time should be given by the doctor, based on the tablet and your health condition. No, diabetics is just controlled by medicine, that is the reason, doctors suggest life long medication. But if you have proper nutritional values in your diet along with medication, slowly your sugar levels will come down, then doctor minimize the dosage, and slowly you can completely cure from diabetes.

Which of the oils is best and safety for diabetic patients. Kindly describe the reasons about it.

Which of the oils is best and safety for diabetic patients. Kindly describe the reasons about it.
Blend of Desi ghee and mustard oil or if you can afford olive oil. There is ratio of essential fatty acids which keeps you healthy. There are two important fatty acids omega3 and omega 6 and ideal ratio of them 1: 4. If you take refind oils this ratio goes upto 1: 70 or less. Which produces oxidative stess in body and give rise to heart problem. By consuming desi ghee and mustard oil but in less amount this ratio comes 1: 8 which is close to ideal ratio.

MBBS, DNB

Kindly continue the same dose of levothyroxine. DONOT REDUCE THE DOSE. The requirement of medication would increase during pregnancy. Hence repeat the test when pregnancy is detected. Keep taking the medicine during the pregnancy especially during first 13 weeks when fetuses thyroid is yet to begin functioning and its need for levothyroxine are met through the mother. Regards.

Normal values are fasting 70 to 110 and after food 2 hours 70 to 140 mg/dl. But mind it these are statistical and decided by governments and studies show that even below these levels a person may suffer changes like retinopathy. Glucometer test is enough.
