I am 64 yrs old. I taking metformin 500 twice daily since the last nearly two years. Is there any side effects for using it continuously. My sugar level is 113 before and 180 after. Please advise.

Let us keep aside the side effects of metformin for time being. While taking this medicine the sugar level r not still under control and this can prove fatal for your body. So consult your physician and ask him to give some aggressive medicine o that your sugar level fasting is below 110 and pp is below 140, otherwise it can cause some serious damage.

Lybrate-user, he needs to be put on insulin injections right away, under the care of competent diabetologist. Multiple doses in a day will be needed. Plus daily monitoring of blood glucose at home is (smbg) needed. It is serious condition if appropriate care is not taken consequences can be very serious. Please do not waste any time.

My mother is diabetic and needs to be injected insulins. Can anyone suggest someone who could come home and inject her. As I tried but it turns out to be very painful for her.

Dear lybrate-user! We do not get people come to our home to dress us, brush our teeth and for other day to day activities. Hence insulin injection should always be self administered or at most by a family member. An outside person will never do it with heart, plus one will then totally become dependent on an external person, lose all freedom. Trust me it is not a pleasant experience. Your painful experience with injection suggests you have not been trained properly to inject insulin. Please meet an endocrinologist. He/She will be happy to teach you and your mom the correct insulin injection technique. Proper injection is always painless. Apologies for this strong worded response but that is the reality. If you were in Delhi, I would have been more than happy to help.

As to why our waists are thickening preferentially, there is no decisive answer. Dr. Ford and colleagues speculate in their article about a number of potential explanations. I am inclined to think that a shift toward diets featuring ever more high-glycemic starches and added sugars is among the smoking guns. High glycemic diets trigger elevations of insulin, and among its many effects, insulin favors the deposition of calories around the middle.
And at that point, the plot thickens along with our waistlines. The deposition of those excess calories as fat around our middles, and in particular in our livers, leads directly to insulin resistance, and higher levels of insulin still. That, in turn, fosters more accumulation of centrally distributed fat, and a degenerating spiral ensues that leads to diabetes, and nowhere good

What causes hasimoto's thirotidis and what is the best method for treatment? Can iodine help this condition?

PGP In Diabetologist, Fellowship in non-invasive Cardiology, MD - Medicine, MBBS
Endocrinologist, Delhi
dear shashank, Hashimotos Thyroiditis and subsequent Hypothyroidism is a common endocrine disorder . This is an auto immune condition. This means that your body's immune system attacks your own thyroid cells and might eventually destroy the cells. There are many causes which can precipitate this attack like a viral attack, trauma, post partum period, +ve family history, selenium deficiency etc. The treatment of hypothyroidism is thyroid hormone replacement The treatment of Hashimoto's disease without hypothyroidism is only symptomatic. Once your TSH goes above 5 miu/ ml we need to start on treatment please revert back with your thyroid profile

The patient is of Age of 73 years, male, suffering from old age diabetics. In recent blood test, fasting sugar is 230 and PL is 435. The patient is vegetarian, not smoking, not chewing tobacco, no drinks. Any Ayurvedic Tablets / churns you will suggest him to consume?

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Mr. lybrate-user, Even though you have asked for Ayurvedic treatment, I am answering the query. The reason is looking at your Fasting & Pp glucose levels it is clear that diabetes is totally uncontrolled. This is not good at any age, particularly at your age. Only real option for controlling diabetes is available only with modern medicines. So my suggestion is please stick to that, treatment can be improved with newer drugs or if need be Insulin may have to be used. Ideally to be in control fasting glucose has to be closer to 100 mg & PP 160 to 170 mg & HbA1c%<7. Otherwise a number of long term complications related to diabetes will start manifesting. In other medical practices unfortunately there are really no remedies to control diabetes, even though tall claims are made by them. Still you want to go for ayurvedic treatment then choice is entirely yours. Thanks.

Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Mr. Lybrate-user, a diet plan for an individual patient has to be very specific. It will depend upon sugar levels, hba1c%, extent of exercise and ideal body weight plus present dietary pattern. So to suggest a specific plane lot more details are needed. However, following things can be considered: avoid sweets completely, no direct sugar or gur, no deep fried foods, no junk foods and pastries. Avoid aerated sweetened drinks, fructose corn syrup containing products, high fat containing milk products, ghee and butter. Consume more of green leafy vegetables, salads and permitted fruits about 100 g a day. Always use whole grain flour for chapati and roti, no maida. Plus over all caloric intake has to be calculated on her ideal body weight, sugar lvel and extent of daily exercise.

Water + lemon juice is beneficial as a good health drink. It has no effect on weight loss. Drinking a glass of water every hour will keep your stomach full, and body hydrated and keep your digestive system going well.

I am 27 years old. I am suffering from thyroid and irregular periods. Major problem for me is irregular periods and I'm under weight. I want to put on my weight. Suggest me.

MBBS, DNB - Obstetrics and Gynaecology
Gynaecologist, Mumbai
Continue ur thyroid medication.keep tsh in control.check it 3 months apart for atleast twice. Irregular periods may get corrected when tsh gets corrected. For irregular periods consult a gynaec for low dose oc pills for 3 months. For 5 feet 1 inch the normal range of weight is btw 43.1kgs to 53kgs. It bmi is to be calculated rather than just gaining wt. Hypothyroidism causes weight gain even otherwise. Moreover with age metabolism slows down and at gain may happen. Inspire of all this u may eat dairy products, dry fruits like cashewnuts, healthy meals for 3 times a day.

I am very healthy and I am having thyroid too, by taking garcinia cambogia will I reduce and is it safe.

MCH, MS- Surgery, MBBS
Endocrinologist, Guwahati
There are very long term few randomized control studies regarding the safety and efficacy of garcinia cambogia and they have been conducted mostly on a small number of patients. Therefore it cannot be definitely said to be safe. Moreover it is used for weight reduction in obesity, it will not resolve your thyroid problem.

I am having problem of uric acid above 10 in report. And many joints are some time paining what to do? Please advise.

MBBS, MD - Internal Medicine
Internal Medicine Specialist, Faridabad
A high uric acid level can be caused when your body either produces too much uric acid or your kidneys don't eliminate uric acid rapidly enough. A high uric acid level may cause increasingly frequent attacks of gout, or it may never cause problems. A high uric acid level may also cause some people to develop kidney stones or kidney failure. And some people with a high uric acid level also develop high blood pressure, heart disease or chronic kidney disease, but it's often unclear whether this is a direct cause or merely an early warning sign of these conditions. Factors that may cause a high uric acid level in your blood include: Diuretic medications (water pills),Drinking too much alcohol,Genetics (inherited tendencies),hypothyroidism (underactive thyroid),Immune-suppressing drugs,Niacin, or vitamin B-3, obesity,psoriasis, Purine-rich diet — organ meat, game meat, anchovies, herring, gravy, dried beans, driedpeas, mushrooms and other foods Renal insufficiency — inability of the kidneys to filter waste Tumor lysis syndrome — a rapid release of cells into the blood caused by certain cancers or by chemotherapy for those cancers,Also, you may be monitored for high uric acid levels when undergoing chemotherapy or radiation treatment for cancer. Avoid protein diets, avoid more milk products. bad habits , fast food/fat/oily,salty foods. Coffee, smoking, alcohol intake. Non-veg., take whole grain,oats,green veg.,plenty of water in day time, 1 glass of water at night before bed.
