Hi. An year ago I was diagnosed with hyperthyroidism. So my doctor gave me mibeta sr40 and nemercazole to avoid it. Since after one year my thyroid is under controlled my doc suggested to stop taking thyroid medicine but continue with mibeta sr40. I feel that I should avoid taking mibeta sr40. When I stop taking mibeta sr it increases my body temperature as I feel a lot of heat emanating from my body. Kindly suggest if my thyroid has been cured then why I need to take a beta blocker?

Your doctor may have prescribed Mi beta sr as your pulse rate would have been high and you may be having palpitation that is aware of the heartbeat PLEASE DO TSH on regular basis to keep track of your hyperthyroidism at hyperthyroidism is known to replase.

Diabetes In Pregnancy - Complications Related To It!

Diabetes In Pregnancy - Complications Related To It!

Pregnancy can be a tricky time for most women, although it is not a pathological condition. One must be prepared for pregnancy with the best of health in the pre pregnancy period. This also includes women who are suffering from diabetes. The complications during pregnancy and delivery increase manifold if one has not controlled the glucose and blood sugar levels before getting pregnant. So read on to know more about coping with pregnancy if you happen to have diabetes.

Complications: Pregnancy with diabetes can cause severe complications if the blood sugar levels are not controlled properly before pregnancy. This can cause the diabetes to become even worse in the long run, with the onset of various other related ailments like kidney disease, heart disease, eye problems and more. It can also increase the risk of premature delivery, and too much birth weight of the baby as well as low glucose levels right after the baby’s birth. Further, one can also lose the baby to a miscarriage due to excessively high blood sugar levels. This can also affect the glucose and blood sugar level of the baby as the glucose passes through the body.

Related conditions: If you happen to have high blood sugar levels, then you and your baby can get affected in an adverse way. To begin with, you may come down with severe depression regarding how you will be able to manage your diabetes and pregnancy together, and also due to the implications of the condition after the birth of the baby. It can also cause a condition called Preeclampsia in which the pregnant woman’s blood pressure becomes high and too much protein starts to pass from the urine, which can also result in frequent urination and life threatening defects and problems for you and the baby. In such cases, you will have to be hospitalised and the baby will need to be delivered via a C section or a Caesarean Section.

Planning ahead: If you know that you are trying to conceive, the best way is to be fully prepared well in advance. This includes planning ahead for managing the blood sugar levels and keeping the risk of other ailments at bay. You can start by losing excessive weight and seek treatment to bring down the blood sugar levels. Exercising and watching your diet are also some good ways to ensure that your Type 1 or Type 2 diabetes is in control.

Medical Team: It is pertinent to be in touch with your medical team on a constant basis. This team should include the obstetrician and gynaecologist as well as your regular doctor to whom you can report any changes.
Keep health close to your heart when you are pregnant by taking care of all existing ailments.

I am only a clinician, can help people to control their disease. Research in this field is going on since ages, but there's no cure in site. Diabetes particularly t2 occurs because of either defect in insulin secretion or insulin resistance or both. Increased body weight, inactivity, junk foods. And migration are contributing to the alarming increase in incidence. Because of increased blood glucose and fats insulin producing cells are damaged. This leads to diabetes. One can prevent it by weight control, exercise and balanced diet.

Mr. Lybrate-user, in my opinion honey is not recommended in a diabetes patient, as it is another form of sucrose. It contains 50% fructose + 50% glucose. Plus some vitamins and antioxidants. Suppose if some one still wants to use it, then there has to be a very strict blood sugar control with fasting around 100 mg, pp 150 to 160 mg, hba1c% <6.8. Thanks for the question.
