PICA can cause deficiencies of iron and minerals. Trace minerals are important for fertility. You need to consult a doctor and do some behavioral therapies to reduce your problem.

Mr. Lybrate-user, both sugar levels look good. Testing by glucometer regularly for self monitoring is good enough. Usually it is said glucometer (calpillary blod) reading is slightly higher than venous blood reading by 11%. But now a days all glucometers are calibrated to give readings like the lab ones. Difference may be visible in pp readings if at all. Frequency of testing depends upon severity and drugs used. That is if insulin is used then almost every day testing is required. Sometimes even two or three times a day, to adjust insulin dosage and avoid hyper or hypoglycemia. Those on oral drugs if blood sugar levels are well controlled then testing once in two weeks or so may be required.

Hi mam, I have hypothyroidism tsh level is 7.54. I heard from many people in pregnancy if have thyroid means. Will get abnormal baby. Is this true? Please tell me.

Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. With TSH 7.54 mU/L, you have sub-clinical hypothyroidism. This usually does not need any treatment. However, if you want to become pregnant then TSH level needs to be brought down to 2 to 3 mU/L. During pregnancy recommended levels are: 1st trimester: 0.1 to 2.5 mU/L, 2nd trimester: 0.2 to 3 mU/L & 3rd trimester: 0.3 to 3 mU/L. If levels are mot maintained in this range, then fetal development is affected plus pregnancy outcome is also not as desired. At present TSH level (7.54 mU/L) unless there are troublesome symptoms associated with hypothyroidism there is no need for treatment. Thanks.

I am 27 years old. Yesterday I went to take blood test. I ate fully and drink mosamni juice before 10-15 minutes of testing. The blood sugar result is 324. What can I do.

This is clear cut diabetes. You need to get hba1c test done to know exact status of your diabetes and need to go on diet and exercise and based on hba1c medication also. You can consult me privately with test report.

Diabetes and Wound Healing: Why Is It Slower?

Diabetes and Wound Healing: Why Is It Slower?

Diabetes is a chronic condition where glucose level of your body rises too high. There are two types of diabetes type 1 and type 2. In case of type 1 diabetes, the body fails to produce insulin and people suffering from this condition have to depend on insulin injections for the rest of their life. In case of type 2 diabetes the body produces less amount of insulin which is not enough for the proper functioning of the body. This type of diabetes can be kept under control by following a healthy diet and practicing exercise regularly.

Why diabetic wounds can cause severe problems?
Diabetes can cause a number of complications that makes it harder for certain wounds to heal. These include:

  1. Nerve damage: Until a cut or blister worsens and becomes inflamed, in case of neuropathy, you will not experience the pain. Diabetics often suffer from neuropathy, making it difficult for wounds to heal.
  2. Weak immune system: A minor wound may even get severe and become infected if your immune system fails to exercise its natural defenses.
  3. Narrow arteries: Blocked arteries may cause severe wounds which becomes difficult to heal. Clogged arteries make it difficult for the blood to flow to the affected area which slows the process of wound healing.

Treating a diabetic wound
You can follow the methods mentioned below to avoid getting infected:

  1. Taking care of the wound immediately. If the wound is not cleaned and taken care of, letting bacteria to build up, it can lead to infection.
  2. Avoid using soaps and hydrogen peroxide to irritate the injury. Use antibiotic lotions to prevent infection and use a sterile bandage to keep the affected area covered.
  3. Consult your doctor before any minor problems turn to larger ones
  4. Since the bottom of the foot is a common place for developing blisters and calluses in case of diabetic people, try to keep pressure off the wound as it slowly heals

Sugary Foods

Fruit Juice

Dried Fruit

White Rice, Bread, and Flour

Full-Fat Dairy

Fatty Cuts of Meat

Packaged Snacks and Baked Goods

Fried Foods

Hi Apple cider vinegar has lot of good effects on the body. It reduces weight, lowers cholesterol thereby reducing risk of heart disease and also has glucose lowering effect hence reduces blood sugar. 2 tsps of apple cider vinegar at bedtime reduces fasting blood sugar. Watch for low blood sugars.

Hi, Lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Your creatinine level is very high, with this your estimated GFR (glomerular filtration rate) has gone down to 24.6 ml /Sq Meter of body surface area. This suggests there is already a chronic kidney affection. Therefore, you need to achieve a strict glucose control with fasting below 100 mg or closer to 100 mg, PP 160 to 170 mg and HbA1c% <7. As regards the reports I have no idea about those. Because I am answering your query for the first time. Thanks.
