You have to use lantus but instead novo rapid, you can use actrapid or insuman rapid, but shift it under strict doctor's monitoring.

Mr. Lybrate-user, if you have confirmed diabetes then the treatment has to continue for life time. Diabetes can only be controlled, there is no cure. Along with drugs, exercise and diet restriction to control weight is also equally important. Check your hba1c%, it should be maintained around <6.8. Thanks for your question.

The Diabetes-Depression Connection

The Diabetes-Depression Connection

According to most experts, Depression and Diabetes have been intricately connected in a vicious cycle. While the prolonged and sustaining nature of diabetes directly makes one vulnerable to the bouts of depression, doctors tend to locate traces of depression in the family history of an individual in order to diagnose the roots of diabetes. It won't be too far-fetched to state that both causes as well as affects the other.

If you have diabetes, either type 1 or type 2, you have an increased risk of developing depression. And if you're depressed, you may have a greater chance of developing type 2 diabetes. The good news is that diabetes and depression can be treated together. And effectively managing one can have a positive effect on the other.

How Diabetes and Depression Correlated?                    
There are myriad ways in which diabetes affects depression and vice versa.

Firstly, tackling such a long drawn disease and its various pitfalls might cause a lot of anxiety to one and lead to depression. Whereas on the other hand, depression reduces the zeal to live and thus results in poor lifestyle choices which in turn causes weight gain, unhealthy food habits, physical inactivity. As we are well aware, all these have the potential to wreak havoc for any patient of diabetes. 

Similarly, diabetes ushers in various other health complications, adversely impacting one's productivity. This may cause depression in a lot of people. 

On the flipside, depression impedes one's ability and enthusiasm to work or communicate, this in turn intervenes with one's monitoring of diabetes. Since these two extremely malevolent diseases have such close connections, medical science recommends ways to grapple with both. The rigors of managing diabetes can be stressful and lead to symptoms of depression.

Diabetes can cause complications and health problems that may worsen symptoms of depression.

Depression affects your ability to perform tasks, communicate and think clearly. This can interfere with your ability to successfully manage diabetes.

Treatment: Depression is just like any other illness, it can be treated. Treatment can lift the depression and improve diabetes control.

Looking after your diabetes will help decrease the risk of getting depression. If you already have depression, good diabetes management will help lessen the negative impacts it can have. Depression is no different to any of the other complication of diabetes. It is a genuine illness for which you need to seek help and support from health professionals.

The treatment for depression and diabetes involves a coordinated approach that monitors both diabetes control and the symptoms of depression. It is about finding the treatment that works best for each person. For example, people with diabetes and mild depression may find that regular physical activity improves depressed moods and also helps control blood glucose levels.

Helping Yourself.

If you suspect you might have depression, take control of your health by:

  • Going to a doctor or other health professional
  • Getting involved in social activities
  • Engaging in regular moderate physical activity
  • Learning about depression and diabetes
  • Very particular about medicines prescribed for Diabetes
  • Eating healthily and including a wide variety of nutritious foods
  • Achieving and maintaining healthy weight
  • Limiting your alcohol intake
  • Getting help, support and encouragement from family and friends
  • Asking your doctor to check your blood pressure, cholesterol and blood glucose levels If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.

Know More About Diabetes

Diabetes patients need regular blood glucose check specially if glucose levels are fluctuating.But practically it is inconvenient to use glucometer every time and everywhere.Pricking multiple times is painful.Sometime glucometer shows error-blood sample is too less,battery is low,glucometer strip is not properly inserted requiring another test adding to frustration and cost of glucose monitoring.There is a solution to it- CGMS (continuous glucose monitoring sensor) technology.Here are FAQ on this technique.

Q- What is CGMS?

Ans- CGMS is a sensor based technique where glucose is checked every 15 minutes by the sensor avoiding multiple needle pricks.

Q-Where is sensor put?

Ans- Sensor is put into skin mostly at back of arm.

Q-Is it painful?

Ans-It is one time prick with automatic machine and pain is less than finger needle prick.

Q-How it works?

Ans-It measures and records glucose data every 15 minutes.That sensor data is captured by Bluetooth technology and studied on mobile like instrument or can be downloaded on computer in the form of graphs.

Q-Can I take bath while sensor is attached on the skin?

Ans- yes it is water proof.

Q-How long it works?

Ans- It works for 2 weeks

Q-Is it costly?

Ans- No.It records more than 1000 reading which if measured by glucometer will cost much more than CGMS.

Ask your diabetologist about it if it suits your requirement.
