Diabetes: It Can be the Reason Behind Other Disorders

Diabetes: It Can be the Reason Behind Other Disorders

Are you suffering from diabetes? If yes, then it’s time for you to be extra careful about your health. Diabetes may cause several other diseases as well. You must check your lifestyle and take medical efforts to get rid of diabetes as soon as possible.

You are at risk of developing nerve damages (neuropathy), vascular injuries and other heart diseases, regardless of your age, sex or other external or internal factors. Diabetes patients must strive to maintain fasting blood glucose levels less than 110 mg/dL and hemoglobin HbA1C level less than 7%.  Also, diabetes patients should keep a check on blood pressure and cholesterol levels.

Here’s how diabetes can affect your overall health:

1. Check your heart: There is a correlation between blood pressure, cholesterol levels and diabetes. Researchers have found that high bad cholesterol levels act as a hindrance to insulin regulation. People with diabetes are more likely to develop heart-related diseases. About 60% diabetes patients die due to heart attacks. Diabetes is responsible for hardening of arteries or atherosclerosis. This situation is dangerous and can cause heart attacks, strokes or other chronic diseases.

2. Neuropathy: Diabetes leads to impaired nerve function. This is called neuropathy. This condition is of two types: Peripheral (which affects toes, feet, legs, hand and arms) and Autonomic (which affects digestion, bowel, bladder, heart and sexual activity). Symptoms of neuropathy include tingling, weakness, burning sensation, numbness in the limbs, digestive disorders, infection of the bladder and erectile dysfunction.

3. Nephropathy: Diabetes is responsible for causing damage to the kidneys as well. This is called nephropathy. In this condition, the filters in the kidney or glomeruli get damaged. As a result, there is a leakage of protein in the urine. Consequently, kidneys get damaged. Urine showing small amounts of protein is an indication of kidney damage. About 20-40% patients suffering from diabetes die due to renal failure. The symptoms of renal disorder due to diabetes include itching, fatigue, urine with protein, swelling of feet and ankles and pale skin colour.

4. Foot ulcers and amputations: Diabetes causes non-injury amputations as it affects the nerve in the limbs, especially foot. Usually, minor infections in the foot may lead to ulcers and later require amputation. In rare cases, Charcot joint or Charcot foot may also occur. This is called neuropathic arthropathy. The symptoms include swelling and reddening of the foot. The bones of the affected foot have a tendency to develop cracks, deforming the entire region.

5. Retinopathy: Diabetes leads to blindness in adults. The eye disorder caused due to diabetes is called retinopathy. Patients with diabetes develop cataract easily. The capillaries and blood vessels in the retina get damaged or obstructed, resulting in damage to the entire retina. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.

Multi vitamins re useful in any situation. However, it is more beneficial to rely on natural fresh foods rich in natural easy to absorb and digest vitamins than rely on chemical based un-natural supplements.

I've been thin all my life until I discovered that there are supplements that can increase my weight. I started drinking supplements. I drink three glasses a day. I've gained 20 pounds since, and I'm now at 125 pounds, but I'm still underweight. During the past three months. Please suggest me proper medicine.

Dear lybrate user, firstly remember that supplements which are used for weight enhancement or fat burners which are used for weight loss are all toxic to the liver. They are unnatural synthetic substances which increase bulk by wrong mechanisms. Your body will gain only by what you do naturally. Just hit the gym and increase your muscle mass- bulk will automatically follow.

Please keep your sugar bp & cholestrol under control as it will prevent organ damage due to diabetes. Your pancreas is damaged that is why you have diabetes. Some of the medicines used for treatment can cause regeneratipn of panceatic cells but damage to pancreas can not be reverted to normal

Is hypothyroidism and hashimoto same or different? If different what is difference bt these?
lybrate-user, Hashimoto's Thyroiditis leads to hypothyroidism. Some people may have hypothyroidism directly because of either iodine deficiency or some thing affecting the thyroid function, which causes thyroxine deficiency. HT is an autoimmune disease, which damages thyroid gland and thyroxine producing cells are destroyed leading to hypothyroidism. Ultimately there is hypothyroidism. Treatment is same. Thanks.

Lybrate-user, looking at your weight and height you have grade 1 obesity with a bmi of 33.34 kg/m2. (normal bmi <23 kgs/m2). Weight reduction is possible when you control hypothyroidism effectively with tsh levels being maintained between 3 to 4 milli units/l. Along with that there has to be a strict diet control and regular exercise of at least 1 hour a day. Your ideal body weight should be about 55 kgs. Thanks for the question.

Hello Dr. my age is 25 and I have thyroid and getting fat continuously. And do not want to take medicine. If you kindly tell any home remedy so that I can overcome from this please.

PDDM, MHA, MBBS
General Physician, Nashik
Pay close attention to your food choice. ·        Eat less carbohydrate food sources like chapatti, rice, noodles, pasta, bread etc as they help in gaining weight and storing fat. ·        While having lunch or dinner eat vegetables and dal to fill your stomach rather eating lots of chapattis or rice. ·        Have a healthy breakfast like poha, idli, upma, plain dosa, oats, dalia or khichdi with vegetables. ·        Eat a balance diet including good quality proteins like: fish, lean chicken and eggs. If you are a vegetarian then include skimmed milk, low fat paneer, butter milk, soy bean or soy milk in your diet. ·        Avoid ghee, butter or vanaspati. Prepare your diet with vegetable oil like sunflower, safflower soybean or olive oil. ·        Eat plenty of salads. ·        Eat fresh fruits including apple, orange, pineapple, papaya, sweet lime, berries, guava, watermelon, mask melon etc. ·        Avoid eating outside junk and fried foods like pizza, pasta, roll, burgers, cakes, chocolates and cookies. ·        Have an early dinner. The earlier the better, giving your system more time to digest the food. ·        Avoid cold drinks/alcohol as they add empty calories to your diet. ·        Avoid fat enriched milk products like cheese, sweets, full fat cream etc. ·        Drink 3 liters of water in a day. ·        Try to have less sugar in food and beverages. ·        Try to drink 2 cups of green tea in a day as green tea helps in weight loss by aiding digestion. ·        Avoid red meat like mutton, beef, lamb or pork. ·        Eat sprouts or roasted chana, whenever you feel hungry.

Mr. lybrate-user, To increase weight, increased food intake should normally help. But if one wants to build a muscular body and increase weight, then exercising regularly under the guidance of a professional trainer is necessary. Plus total protein and fat intake has to go up. Thanks.

What is the reason for increase in blood sugar to 400? My father never had sugar problem. He is 69 now.

Homeopath,
What is the reason for increase in blood sugar to 400? My father never had sugar problem. He is 69 now.
Dear Mr. Lybrate-user, diabetes has various causes. Those may be hereditary inheritance, loss of exercise, too much mental pressure etc. But as you have stated that your blood sugar level is 400, you should be worried more about decreasing it than investigating its cause. Give your father homoeopathic uranium nit 3x tablets (r. S. Bhargava company). Give 1 tablet, thrice daily, in empty stomach.

How do I control diabetes and high blood pressure?  I am a heart patient with severe cholesterol. please help me?
Hi, diabetics often have high bp too unless there is any other underlying cause. First and foremost, your high bp needs to be brought under control. Make sure that you meet your diabetologist/ cardiologist in person asap, so that your high bp/ sugar/ cholesterol levels are brought down with no further delay. He/ she may appropriately advise further diagnostics, if any, and may also require referring you to other specialists including a nephrologist consultation to check upon your kidneys health. Simultaneously, you will have to check your dietary habits, especially cut down on salt, and other high calorie greasy/ oily & fatty foods. Watermelon helps lower bp. Ensure that you streamline your lifestyle, with adequate room for relaxation and de-stressing. Should you be working, you need to see how you can streamline your occupational aspect as well to reduce stress at work. This shall systemically help you keep your bp in control. Being a diabetic, the need to streamline your diet & lifestyle and relaxation/ de-stressing yourself, cannot be under-emphasized. You must ensure consumption of whole grain cereals, fresh milk, fibrous fruits like apples and leafy greens. Especially, cucumber, jamun, bitter gourd, onions, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, lemon etc are beneficial in diabetes. Banana and other high calorie fruits be best avoided. You should take water plentily and exercise (light) for at least 30 - 45 mins daily. Remember walking is the best and safest exercise unless you have other constraints with respect to your health that prohibit you from doing so. Most of the guidelines as mentioned above for diabetes and bp shall help control your cholesterol levels too. Coriander water is known to help bring down cholesterol levels. Additionally, vegetable oils with pufa, amla, cayenne, green tea, fenugreek (methi), isabgol, flaxseed et al help bring down cholesterol levels too. Daily yogasanas, pranayams & meditation also help keep fit from all angles.
