You have not mentioned whether you were taking anti-diabetic medication previously. If not, and if your diabetes is now under control by lifestyle modification only, then it is a very good thing. Just keep up your present life style. However, considering that you have hyoertension and hypothyroidism also, it would be advisable to go for regular check ups every 3 months. You have to especially monitor your fasting blood glucose, hba1c, cholesterol, kidney functions and blood pressure. Rest all is good as lomg as you are not having any symptoms. Thanks.

Mr. lybrate-user, It is clear from your blood glucose level that there is diabetes. Once diabetes is present, then treatment with drugs is absolutely essential. Plus diet control and exercise are also needed. Lipid profile also shows high LDL. It is necessary to maintain fasting glucose around 100 mg, PP 150 to 160 mg & HbA1c%<6.8. Otherwise long term complications of diabetes related to various organs are bound to set in more rapidly. Even your weight is more with a BMI of 26.98 kgs/M2. Ideal body weight at your age and height should be 69 kgs. If you are interested in appropriate treatment please come back with following details: current fasting, PP blood glucose level, HbA1c%, present dietary pattern, &extent of daily exercise. Based on those details I will be able to advise necessary treatment. Thankks.

What are the various tests that a t2 diabetic should do on a regular basis and what is the timeframe to be followed? this is for my mother who is on bedtime tresiba (8 units ave.) and also takes galvusmet 500/50 mg twice daily and amaryl 2mg twice daily.

First thing is to decide whether your sugar levels are controlled (within range) or not. - means that sugar fasting, post prandial should all be within normal range. This needs to be supplemented by hbaic test - done 3 monthly, to check preceding sugar levels. Again a baseline lft, kidney panel are a must and based on abnormal parameters in these tests, further course to be decided.

Insulin is best for you after 20 years of diabetes. It has no side effects. Other benefit with insulin is umbrella protection, even if you are not controlled, your organs are protected.

Hello, you first of all start with physical workout and morning walk along with sugar restriction. This will improve the sugar levels. And only one reading is not enough to diagnose you diabetic and start medications. You have to check FASTING , PPBS, HBA1C LEVELS first. Then only can proceed for treatment. At the first stage is lifestyle modifications is must.

Fight Obesity to Prevent Yourself Against Diabetes!

M.D, MBBS
Cosmetic Physician, Mumbai
Fight Obesity to Prevent Yourself Against Diabetes!

Obesity is a disorder which is characterized by accumulation of fat in the body resulting in various health problems. Diabetes is a metabolic disorder that occurs when the sugar in the blood does not get efficiently utilized by the body. This is due to the inability of the body to produce enough insulin to metabolize the sugar. 

Diabetes is classified into two types, Type 1 diabetes wherein the body is unable to produce enough insulin and Type 2 wherein the body develops a resistance to insulin. Diabetes is known to cause diseases such as blindness and kidney problems. The risks of suffering from a stroke and other cardiovascular problems go up significantly if you have been diagnosed with diabetes. 

Weight plays a big role in the development of Type 2 diabetes and so weight loss is recommended. Other factors such as stress, age, pregnancy and medications also contribute to this disorder. Usually, a majority of the people who have been diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes are found to be overweight. Being obese makes it difficult for the body to utilize insulin effectively in order to metabolize blood sugar.

As obesity is closely linked with diabetes, it becomes essential to focus on weight loss as a preventive measure against diabetes. 

  1. Try to exercise on a regular basis. Add cardiovascular exercises to your regimen such as running and swimming as they are very effective in burning fat from your body thus reducing the weight/fat. 
  2. Lifting weights also promotes fat loss by boosting your Resting Metabolic Rate or Basal Metabolic Rate (the body’s rate of burning off calories while you are at rest). 
  3. Follow a well- balanced diet that focuses on low carbohydrate and high protein based meals. 

Apart from these lifestyle changes, focus can be brought on the following techniques also as effective means to shed off the excess fat:

  1. Ultrasonic liposuction: This technique involves using high energy sound waves to eliminate fat from your body. It is a non-invasive procedure that inflicts no trauma on the adjoining tissues in the body and thus providing better weight / inch loss.. 
  2. Mesotherapy: It is a non-surgical treatment that involves injecting medications into fat tissues. These medications target the adipose cells in the body and destroy them. This is a permanent procedure that is very effective in removing stubborn fat from the body and helping further in weight loss. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a cosmetic physician.

6 weeks plus is too early to predict outcome of growth. Thyroid is low on borderline and I would not suggest medicine during early pregnancy. Be sure that baby growth will pick up within few days specially if medical reports are normal you may be given medicines for low thyroid later. Do write back after a month. Eat a low fat but light high protein diet to avoid vomiting.

Mr. lybrate-user, Long standing diabetes invariably causes ED. Particularly if there's persistent hyperglycemia. Therefore, primary need is strict glycemic control, with FBS around 100 mg, PP150 to 160 mg & HbA1c < 6.8℅ . However, damage caused is hardly repaired. Apart from achieving strict control, you may have to use certain drugs like PDE - Inhibitors for temporary relief. Thanks.
