What is sugar, why it occur. What is the best medicine and thing to do. Are it occur in childhood.
Dear lybrate user, one of the major nutritional substance required for human body is carbohydrate. We take carbohydrate in the form of rice, wheat, sugar etc. The complex molecules of carbohydrate are broken down into simple glucose molecules during digestion & released in the blood stream to be absorbed by the muscle cells. Muscle cells utilise the glucose molecules to release energy by breaking down those glucose molecules. Insulin hormone plays a vital role in the absorption of the glucose molecules by the muscle cells. In abnormal conditions, either due to less production of insulin or due to resistance to insulin, the process of absorption of glucose by the muscles comes to a stand still. The glucose molecules remains in the bloodstream which results in the increase in the blood sugar level. The failure of utilisation of the glucose molecules by the muscle cells results in production of less energy than normal condition. This is externally manifested as the fatigue & tiredness of the patient. This excess amount of blood sugar compels the kidney to function more than normal level in order to excrete the blood sugar molecules through urine. As a result the patient suffers from frequent urination. This abnormal condition is clinically known as diabetes mellitus. Once a patient is diagnosed with diabetes he has to take regular medicine to keep his blood sugar level within normal limits. Take homoeopathic mother tincture gymnema sylvestra q, 30 drops, thrice daily, after meals, in a cup of water. Also you need to walk at least 1 hour daily without any interval. Also you need to take a low carbohydrate rich diet. Avoid rice, sweet dishes, fruits, cold drinks, fast foods, alcoholic beverages, potato etc.

Hi lybrate-user! with a fasting blood sugar of 82 you seem to be in good control. I would suggest to get your HbA1C done. If its less than 7, then,only life style changes would be required for you. Walking, jogging, swimming and dancing would be helpful as it helps in reducing weight and also increases insulin sensitivity in body (which is a good thing. Try to avoid weight lifting and push ups initially as it may increase your blood pressure. And at last, eat healthy. Avoid high cholesterol food. Take care.

Hi sir, I am a diabetic patient, can I have 3 re times a day using fenugreek seeds?
Mr. lybrate-user, Fenugreek seeds contain a good amount of fiber, which helps in slowing down carbohydrate absorption. So taking thsese seeds is helpful. But whether there is direct reduction in blood glucose and how much, is difficult to say. Thanks.

I am 55 year old I am a diabetic patient for last 10 year. I am facing erection problem can you suggest some remedies.
Mr. Lybrate-user, diabetes mellitus affects small blood vessels, so affects erectile function in many people. Especially if blood sugar is not well controlled. So primary requirement is to have excellent sugar control with fasting closer to 100 mg and pp 150 to 160 mg and hba1c% <7. If this not maintained for long time, then ed is bound to develop. Apart from tight sugar control there are certain drugs called as pde- v inhibitors which have been able to help overcoming this difficulty.

Does Celiac Disease Reduce Fertility?

MRCOG, MD - Obstetrics & Gynaecology, DNB (Obstetrics and Gynecology), MBBS
Gynaecologist, Delhi
Does Celiac Disease Reduce Fertility?

Celiac disease is a condition in which the small intestine becomes sensitive and reactive to gluten, leading to difficulty in digesting food. Gluten is a kind of a protein found in wheat or barley. In reality, if either of the partners is suffering from celiac disease then you are prone to fertility related issues.

Impact of Celiac disease

As compared to men, this disease is more common among women in general. Women suffering from the disease are generally more prone to infertility and other genealogical problems like preterm births and miscarriages. In the case of men, the disease causes the infertility problems including sperm abnormalities such as low count, abnormal shape, reduced function and such others. Additionally, men with the untreated celiac disease might also have reduced levels to testosterone.

Infertility and Celiac disease

Infertility is one of the lesser known effects of the celiac disease, which is relatively uncommon amongst people. The disease causes infertility by affecting the menstrual cycle among women either in a direct or indirect manner. Some of the infertility related problems caused due the disease are listed below.

  • Delayed occurrence of menstruation
  • Early menopause
  • Secondary amenorrhea (a medical condition associated with sudden cessation of menstruation for 6 months or more)
  • Hormonal disruptions and abnormal changes

Diagnosis

Celiac disease is usually diagnosed by its own set of underlying symptoms such as chronic fatigue syndrome, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), iron-deficiency anemia, and such others. Additionally, the condition can be diagnosed if a person is having repeated miscarriages or inability to conceive for unidentified causes.

What can you do about it?

If you experience symptoms of Celiac disease, consult your doctor at the earliest and follow the treatments and preventative measures suggested. Additionally, you can also consult a dietician who will help you to move on to a low grain or no grain diet that would help you further to avoid the disease.

Hi, raising the hemoglobin from 7.5 g/100ml to normal is a bit difficult. Many a time packed cells may have to be given, otherwise start on hematinics daily and those to be taken for over 8 plus months. Plus he should increase the intake of green leafy vegetables daily.

Hi lybrate-user. In Ayurveda, we take it as Madhumeha. Pallitative disease. It cannot be completely cured; but, can be controlled by food and medicine. In rare cases, if it is originated due to any secondary cause or stress or medicine etc, on cure of the main illness or on withdrawal of the medicine, it will be subsided by its own. Ayurvedic treatment concept for diabetes: Depending on the physical constitution or body type (prakriti), or the health status of an individual, ayurvedic classics advocate two different types of therapy schedules for diabetics. They are: Apatarpana – de-nourishment treatment – useful in obese diabetic patients, usually in Kapha body type patients. Santarpana – Nourishing treatment – useful in lean diabetic patients, usually in Vata or Pitta body type patients. As You are already on medication so all of a sudden we can not stop those medication. So, please take dese medication along with those medicine for 1 month. Please check your sugar test after 1 month of medication and share it with us for further modification. Treatment:- 1. Madhu mehari kwatha:-10 ml with warm water after food daily twice. 2. Tab B 34-1 tab twice a day before food. Note:- 1. Healthy diet 2. Physical Exercise 3. Sleep well 4. Avoid smoking and alcohol.

Hi first thing is to control blood sugar effectively, which means maintain fasting around 100 mg, pp 150 to 160 mg and hba1c%<7. If that is achieved, then maintaining a healthy but restricted diet plus exercise will additionally benefit. A diet plan has to be very individual specific, that needs all details as mentioned above plus present diet, extent of daily exercise. In the mean time you should follow: 1) avoid sweets completely, 2) no direct sugar or jaggery, 3) avoid deep fried foods, junk foods, bakery items, pastries, 4) no sweetened aerated drinks, fructose corn syrup containing products and honey. 5) consume more of green leafy vegetables, salads and permitted fruits about 100 g a day. 6) use always whole grain products and whole grain flour, no maida at all. Exercise daily for at least 1 hour, brisk walking is ideal. Plus no alcohol and smoking. If you follow the above modified lifestyle, controlling blood sugar becomes comparatively easier. With regards.

Your chance of having normal baby depends on certain things like controlled thyroid status, detailed usg, regular check up, blood pressure, sugar etc. Vaginal delivery is not always risky if the conditions are well controlled but at this age, you may have prolonged labour.
