When to take insulin in diabetes

From being diagnosed as a new diabetic to many years later after it the question that haunts diabetics is whether i should take insulin now or in the future. If you are a type diabetic (in young people) you start with insulin right away but if you are diagnosed with late onset diabetes (above 35 years- exceptions apply) you delay it for as long as possible.

The answer to this is simple. You continue on diet, exercise and tablets as long as you can maintain your sugar levels within normal and when inspite of this your blood sugar levels are uncontrolled (consitently above 200 mg/dl) and you are developing complications such as high blood sugar levels, infections (unresolving) or ketoacidosis etc. Obviously the trouble to take insulin is not more than being confined to an ICU bed and hence you will need to start taking insulin once twice or even thrice a day.

One of my friend is suffering from thyroid. What should she do to cure it. Her age is 50.

Mr K D, If you are referring to hypothyroidism, then she has to be treated with thyroxine tablets. Dose will depend on TSH levels and body weight. Plus should exercise regularly for 1 hour a day so as to maintain near normal weight. After starting the treatment periodically tsh levels should be checked in 6 to 8 weeks to see if any change in dosage is needed.

Avoid stress. Some Relax during work. Drink more water, high-carbohydrate foods such as potatoes, rice, pasta and bread. You can take Nutrient-rich foods that improve your health may also benefit your thyroid gland, antioxidant-rich fruits and vegetables more plenty of water: Blueberries, tomatoes, bell peppers, and other foods rich in antioxidants can improve overall health and benefit the thyroid gland. Eating foods high in B vitamins, like whole grains, may also help. Selenium: Tiny amounts of selenium are needed for enzymes that make thyroid hormones to work properly. Eating selenium-rich foods, such as sunflower seeds or Brazil nuts, can be beneficial. Tyrosine: This amino acid is used by the thyroid gland to produce T3 and T4. Taking a supplement may help, avoid oily foods,junk foods, go for walk. Tests every 3 to 6 months.

Tsh 12.93, can it b cured, kya bina dawa k kuchh care exercise wagerah karke Tsh level normal Ho sakta h?

Tsh 12.93, can it b cured, kya bina dawa k kuchh care exercise wagerah karke Tsh level normal Ho sakta h?
Mr. Lybrate-user, tsh level goes up because thyroid gland is not producing enough thyroxine hormone. (there is a deficiency of thyroxine). Once we supplement thyroxine from outside, then tsh levels come down. There is no other way to reduce this. If you do not take the medicine, then there can be serious consequences like swelling of the whole body, excess weight gain, dry skin skin and hair and hair loss, menstrual disturbances, anxiety, depression, difficulty in concentration and in speech. A serious consequence called mixedema may develop. Hence it is necessary to start the treatment and continue it. Thanks.

Sleep related disorder is common in elderly with comorbidities. Good sleep hygiene is advised for the same. Going to bed early, light meals before food, low light, avoiding fatty meal, reading novels, avoiding watching tv in the evening, yoga or relaxation before sleeping are some measures you can try.

I am 56 old male suffering from diabetes pl give me daily chart so that I can leave remaining life comfortably.
Small and frequent meals is advisable. Use complex carbohydrate as the main energy source rather than fat or protein. Avoid ‘filling up’ with fatty foods such as cheese or meat containing high saturated fat levels. Eat fish, especially oily fish, once or twice a week. Use olive oil or rapeseed oil in cooking. Keep sugar to a minimum especially if overweight. Eat five portions of fruit or vegetables daily. Restrict salt, which is often present in processed foods. Avoid junk foods, grapes, potatoes, etc. Regular moderate aerobic physical activity or Brisk walking for at least 30 minutes on 5 days of the week. With above mention advice you will need medication to control your sugar, kindly see a good endocrinologist for further management Hope this guides you.

What are the symptoms of diabetes and how we take insulin IBM sugriv level is 600.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
What are the symptoms of diabetes and how we take insulin IBM sugriv level is 600.
Lybrate-user, diabetes invariably does not produce any symptoms, hence many persons do not come to know that they have diabetes. When fully developed usually observed symptoms include excess thirst, excess hunger, excess urination, unexplained tiredness and weight loss. The second part of the question is not clear. Is it saying sugar levels is 600 mg, so how much insulin one has to take? before deciding on that one has to look at whether the patient has any insulin secretion at all. A c- peptide assay has to be done. 600 mg sugar is very high and it may lead to diabetic ketoacidosis if the patient has t1 dm or may lead to hyper osmolar hypertonic state (in elderly patients). Dose of insulin has to be slowly increased by observing glucose reduction over a period. So difficult to give exact dose. But if some one has such a high level, hospitalisation may needed.

Hi lybrate-user, there can be many causes for poor motility of sperms and some of these can be managed with medications. You need to consult an infertility expert for further treatment. There are methods to take sperms out surgically and these sperms can be used to fertilize your wife's eggs in a laboratory. The fertilized egg can then be transferred into your wife's uterus for pregnancy. Its a treatable condition in most case. Good luck.

Hi , 1.Eat a lot of non-starchy vegetables, beans, and fruits such as apples, pears, peaches, and berries. 2.Even tropical fruits like bananas, mangoes, and papayas tend to have a lower glycemic index than typical desserts 3.Eat grains in the least-processed state possible: “unbroken,” such as whole-kernel bread, brown rice, and whole barley, millet. 4.Limit white potatoes and refined grain products to small side dishes. 5.Limit concentrated sweets—including high-calorie foods with a low glycemic index, such as ice cream—to occasional treats. Eliminate sugar-sweetened drinks. 6.Eat a healthful type of protein at most meals, such as beans, fish, or skinless chicken.Choose foods with healthful fats, such as olive oil, nuts (almonds, walnuts), and avocados. 7.Limit saturated fats from dairy and other animal products. Completely eliminate partially hydrogenated fats (trans fats), which are in fast food and many packaged foods. 8.Have three meals and one or two snacks each day, and don’t skip breakfast. 9.Eat slowly and stop when full
