Im asking this question for my would be husband. He is 31 years old. 6 months before doctors found he is diabetic. Suggested istamet 50/500. He stopped using that tablet after 1 month. He controlled his blood sugar. From last 2 months his sugar level is between 130-150. He has lots of stress about our marriage. Is diabetics affect our sexual life? Which tablet should he taken for diabetics? His mother also a diabetic patient. He is not using any medicines now.

Lybrate-user, if a person has confirmed diabetes and is on treatment, then stopping the treatment is not advisable. The sugar level mentioned (130 to 150 mg) is which one? fasting or pp? because once drug treatment is stopped blood sugar can increase disproportionately. Get his hba1c% checked, it has to aoround 6 to be free from diabetes. (5.9 to 6.4 % is prediabetes, >6.5 % is diabetes). As regards affection of sexual life, yes it can get affected if blood sugar levels are not strictly controlled with appropriate treatment. It is better if consults a proper diabetologist. Thanks.

Mr. Lybrate-user, according to diagnostic criteria if fasting is >126 mg it is considered diabetes. Similarly if pp is>200 mg it is diabetes. Between 141 to 199 mg it is pre diabetic state. So it looks like you are having prediabetes. This can be definitely be controlled by diet and exercise. If you really adapt the modified lifestyle with balanced and restricted diet and regular exercise, refraining form alcohol and smoking, avoiding junk foods and pastries, you can remain free from diabetes for a considerable time. With regards.

In t2 dm there is insulin resistance but there are no antibodies against it. Insulin resistance can be reduced by maintaining near normal body weight and a bmi of 23kg/m2. Exercising for more than 1 h a day is a good method of improving insulin resistance. Drugs like metformin and pioglitazone also help in reducing the resistance.

U should start tab metformin 500 mg daily. It is preventive as well as curative medicine. Sp if your fasting blsugar is = ormore than101mg/dl. Continue exercise minimum 30 min daily//also diet control. This will prevent future complications.

Mr. Lybrate-user, diabetes mellitus is a disease due to either insulin deficiency or resistance to its actio or both, particularly if it is t2 dm. In t1 dm there is no insulin at all. Treatment of diabetes depends on the type of the disease. Another important thing to be remembered is that treatment will continue for life time. There is no cure for the disease. I could not follow your query on" elctronic media" to be attached to the body, there is nothing of that sort at least for now. She will need proper treatment with appropriate drugs, diet control and regular exercise and weight control.

Pay close attention to your food choice. ·        Eat less carbohydrate food sources like chapatti, rice, noodles, pasta, bread etc as they help in gaining weight and storing fat. ·        While having lunch or dinner eat vegetables and dal to fill your stomach rather eating lots of chapattis or rice. ·        Have a healthy breakfast like poha, idli, upma, plain dosa, oats, dalia or khichdi with vegetables. ·        Eat a balance diet including good quality proteins like: fish, lean chicken and eggs. If you are a vegetarian then include skimmed milk, low fat paneer, butter milk, soy bean or soy milk in your diet. ·        Avoid ghee, butter or vanaspati. Prepare your diet with vegetable oil like sunflower, safflower soybean or olive oil. ·        Eat plenty of salads. ·        Eat fresh fruits including apple, orange, pineapple, papaya, sweet lime, berries, guava, watermelon, mask melon etc. ·        Avoid eating outside junk and fried foods like pizza, pasta, roll, burgers, cakes, chocolates and cookies. ·        Have an early dinner. The earlier the better, giving your system more time to digest the food. ·        Avoid cold drinks/alcohol as they add empty calories to your diet. ·        Avoid fat enriched milk products like cheese, sweets, full fat cream etc. ·        Drink 3 liters of water in a day. ·        Try to have less sugar in food and beverages. ·        Try to drink 2 cups of green tea in a day as green tea helps in weight loss by aiding digestion. ·        Avoid red meat like mutton, beef, lamb or pork. ·        Eat sprouts or roasted chana, whenever you feel hungry.

Mr. Lybrate-user, it will be good if you give following details like: fasting, pp sugar levels (current), hba1c%, bp readings, extent of exercise done daily, dietary pattern and medicines being taken with dosage. Only on going through those details there is possibility of giving some opinion or guidance. However, one important thing is to keep yourself engaged in some sort of activity all the while, so that no negative thoughts enter your mind upset you. Plus learn to relax and reduce both physical and mental tensions. Thanks for the question.

Following are the tips to control diabetes: 1-losing extra weight: helps lower your blood pressure and cholesterol too. Waist of more than 80 cm in women & 90 cm in man are at risk 2- constant and regular food timings: improves metabolic activity and helps reducing weight. 3- split meals and eat in moderate amount 4- no long gaps and skipping of meals:-never miss out breakfast. 5- no overeating:-never eat in a bulk on one time remember to eat food slowly & chew well. 6- proper exercise and work outs: regular brisk walking for 30 min. Five times a week is best. Cycling, swimming, dancing can also be done. Do not eat right away after a workout. 7-constant and regular timings for medication 8-avoid fried foods, meat, fats and sweets. 9- take high-fibre and complex carbohydrates:-like oats and include high-fiber carbohydrates like wheat bran, flaxseed and methi seeds to your wheat flour. Add whole grain foods in your diet. Avoid white bread, pasta, pizza, candies, and snacks. 10-drink enough fluids:-keep your body well hydrated. 11. Fresh vegetables and fruits. Include sprouts in the diet as they are easily digestible 12- avoid excess salt:-in form of pickles/papads/salads etc. 13-avoid alcohol consumption:-alcohols such as beer and wine contains large amount of calories. 14- dairy products:-dairy products are high on fat. So consume skimmed milk products, low fat cheese, yogurt (curd) etc. Try green tea instead.

In some people there will be less glucose in the blood due to hormonal imbalance and eventually if it is not treated or if no precautions are taken, then it may lead to pre diabetic or diabetic case - this condition is called reactive hypoglycemia.

Sugar - 5 Reasons to Avoid It

M.Phil biotech and PGD Dietitics

Sugar - 5 Reasons to Avoid It

Simple sugar is also known as monosaccharide, is the basic unit of carbohydrates. The simplest forms of sugar are usually colourless and crystalline and exist in forms of glucose, fructose and galactose. Simple sugar is deemed to be a major concern according to all health nutritionists.

Here are five reasons why you should avoid them:

  1. Sugar is the biggest cause of obesity: Sugar present in all kinds of junk food is considered to be the biggest cause of obesity as fructose easily converts into fat inside your body. Consuming too much sugar can put too much pressure on your liver as it is responsible for converting fructose into fat. Large amounts of sugar are directly converted into fat, thus, putting you at a very high risk of becoming obese.
  2. Increases risks of contracting heart diseases: Consuming too much sugar throughout the day causes a hike in your insulin levels which can further affect your nervous system. An excess of sugar in your blood stream also causes your blood pressure to rise which makes you more likely to get a heart stroke. Thus, to avoid cardiac problems at a young age, you must cut down your sugar intake.
  3. Weakens immune system: Sugar is a major reason for inflammation which affects the central immune system adversely. With an excess intake of sugar, the body becomes less effective in dealing with infection and common cold because phagocytes (white blood cells) cannot do their job properly of engulfing dangerous bacteria. Thus, you should aim at boosting your immune system by cutting down on sugar completely.
  4. Sugar can make you age faster: The sugar content in your body creates molecules known as AGEs (Advanced glycation end products) which attack the fibres in elastin and collagen (the building blocks of the cells on your skin). A study also proved that consuming too much sugar can result in acne as the collagen in your skin weakens. Thus, to maintain youthful looking skin for longer, you should remove sugar from your diet completely.
  5. Sugar can be addictive: Most people who consume too much sugar get addicted to it. According to a study, the addiction to sugar is very similar to addiction to tobacco and drugs. You might start craving sugar and depending on it to change your mood more often than required. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.

Hello , don't worry, he will be completely cured. He is already affected with diabetes, pls use the medicine prescribed by doctor. Bad smell in the toilet may come due to heavy medication. Make sure he doesn't drink water before sleep, add fruits and raw vegetables to his diet in the night hours like carrot, apple, beetroot etc. For his weakness, add milk, wheat, soya to his diet. Let me suggest some good natural food supplements from the brand called nurilite.Your father will be cured completely, just take a good care of him. Have a nice day.
