please let me know the current sugar levels as well as hba1c% and what medication he is on. Is the wound infected? if so it must thoroughly cleaned and broad spectrum antibiotics like moxikind - cv 625 tablets to be taken three times a day for 6 days. Most important is strict control of blood sugar.

I am 46 years old I am diabetic since last 5 years I am taking the medicines daily my question:- I want to know the what all things I need to avoid as a precautions, in taking food, fruits, juices, non veg, etc.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Controlling blood sugar it is not as easy task to control blood sugar in the desired normal range. What are the medicines you take? whatever we eat is metabolised to sugar in the body to provide energy for our daily activities. For the absolute control, one has to monitor his / her blood sugar at regular intervals (self-monitoring of blood glucose? smbg). Though difficult, this can be done by a glucometer and keep a record. Get an idea of fasting sugar (fbs) and 2 hours after food (ppbs) and check before dinner and after every major food. The basic idea is to reduce the food intake to 1/3 of what you take now. The dictum of sugar control is diet, exercise, diet + medicine and at later stage medicine+ insulin will be needed. For sugar control there is the need for regular advice and follow up. Just one time consultation or advice is not enough to guide a diabetic in scientifically & medically correct manner. For giving you regular follow up you ask me privately with all details like your daily eating pattern and medicines you take. I assure you a proper guidance. If you keep in touch.

What is the best solution of diabetes and what precaution should be taken for this please tell me any good solution.
Mr. Lybrate-user, diabetes mellitus is a disease occurring due to either lack of insulin or resistance to its action or both as in t2 dm or total absence of insulin as in t1 dm. T1 is usually seen in younger age, starting with early childhood on wards. Here the only treatment is insulin injections, there is no other option. Plus diet control and exercise. In t2 there are a number of drugs used apart from insulin injections, plus the modified life style. The exact" solution" will depend upon type of diabets one has. Whatever may be the option it will have to be continued for life time.

I am a 64 years old male. Had my CABG 2 years back with my saphaneous vein removed from right leg for the procedure (plus the LIMA, it was a 2 vessel CAD). Since last 1 year, my right feet and ankle are swelling up (at times) and more importantly, severe pain is troubling me frequently (but not always) in the inner soft padding of the heel. Uric acid in blood test showed 5. 6. Ortho says the problem is due to excessive uric acid and there is no cure. Cardio says the uric acid is within control. Consult an ortho. What should I do?

This condition can be due to uric acid problem (called gout). Not all patients with symptomatic gout will have a high uric acid level. So serum uric acid is not a good indicator of you symptoms. Although gout has no permanent cure, it is treatable with a long lasting relief. Plantar fasciitis is another condition which can cause heel pain.

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.i.e. t3,t4,tsh, also do vit.D. and vit. B., s.calcium. you can take tab. dolo sos for pain.

Hi Your RBS value is diabetic value. However with one value we cannot decide if you are a Diabetic. Get your 3 month average blood sugar test, HbA1C. This will confirm if your a diabetic or pre diabetic.

MBBS, MD - Internal Medicine
Internal Medicine Specialist, Faridabad
High uric acid level can be caused when human body either produces too much uric acid or your kidneys do not eliminate uric acid rapidly enough. A high uric acid level may cause increasingly frequent attacks of gout. A high uric acid level may also cause some people to develop kidney stones or kidney failure. And some people with a high uric acid level also develop high blood pressure, heart disease or chronic kidney disease. Factors that may cause a high uric acid level in your blood include: Diuretic medications , Drinking too much alcohol, Genetics disorder , hypothyroidism , Immune-suppressing drugs, Niacin, or vitamin B-3, obesity, psoriasis, Purine-rich diet — organ meat, dried beans, driedpeas, mushrooms and other foods Avoid protein diets, avoid more milk products. bad habits , fast food/fat/oily,salty foods. Coffee, smoking, alcohol intake. Non-veg., take whole grain,oats,green veg.,plenty of water in day time, 1 glass of water at night before bed. Do test KFT every 6 months to monitor levels of it. Take tab. Zyloric 100 mg once a day. Tab. Ulracet sos for pain in joints .

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. I am speaking from the world wide data on the disease and its treatment. Hypothroidism is a deficiency disease. Thyroxie hormone which is produced by our thyroid gland is not being produced either enough or nil. This leads pititary to produce more of TSH to try and stimulate thyroid gland. But it is unable to produce. So in hypothyroidism you get high TSh value and low T4 and T3 hormones. Both these are essential for day to day functioning of our body. So they need to be supplemented from outside. If not done then the person will have swelling of face, legs and feet, weight gain, intolerance to cold, slow heart rate, muscle and joint pains, irregular menstruation in females, plus infertility, anxiety, depression, dry skin, dry hair and hair fall. If still no treatment is given there can be serious complications called as myxedema coma. In chidren hypothyroidism leads to lack of intelligence an less IQ. The only treatment world wide is taking adequate dose of levothyroxine which is a synthetic form of hormone. Unfortunately there is no cure for this condition like for diabetes. But if yu do not want to believe, it is fine. There is no need to get confused. Follow one of the line of thinking. If you want to believe Ayurvedic doctors and stop the medication and try out that medicine, please do. Good luck to you. Thanks.

The pathogenesis of type 2 diabetes is related to lifestyle factors like obesity, physical inactivity, diet and other familial and genetic factors; recent studies have also highlighted the role of oxidative stress and inflammatory cytokines like IL-6 and TNF-α in the development of obesity, insulin resistance (IR) and damage to pancreatic β-cells in diabetes.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Since your BP is very high, it has to be treated, particularly considering your young age. Do No t Neglect. As regards blood glucose, there is no detail given, so difficult to comment. I hope you are controlling the same very effectively. Ideally FBG should be <100 mg, PP 150 to 160 mg & HbA1c% <6.8. So please see that these targets are achieved. If you have any doubts please do come back. Thanks.

I am a diabetic patient and my last bilirubin is 3.1. Now please tell me what I do?
Mr. Lybrate-user kumar, first and foremost is to control blood sugar effectively. Fasting should be closer to 100 mg, pp 150 to 160 mg and hba1c% 6.8. Then exercise regularly, reduce deep fried foods, take low fat milk products, avoid organ meats, red meat, fishes can be a good choice. Take low fat milk, more of curds and butter milk. Take fiber rich creals. This will help in reducing bilirubin levels. Plus refrain from alcohol completely.

lybrate-user, If your height is 165 cms, then 62 kgs weight is not high. I do not see any increase in it. Anyway, if you are on treatment for hypothyroidism, then TSH should be maintained between 3 to 4 mU/L, for achieving good control. If that is not done, then all the symptoms related to hypothyroidism are likely to be back, or may not go away. So please check TSH levels and make sure those are maintained as mentioned above. Then efforts to reduce weight will be successful. Thanks.
