Ways To Help You Manage Diabetic Hypertension!

Ways To Help You Manage Diabetic Hypertension!

Hypertension is commonly witnessed among patients suffering from type 2 diabetes as compared to those who do not have diabetes. Studies have revealed that arterial hypertension among patients suffering from type 2 diabetes is in the vicinity of 40-50 percent. What’s more, a patient suffering from hypertension and diabetes has an increased risk factor for certain other diseases such as left ventricular hypertrophy, dyslipidemia, elevated fibrinogen and hyperuricemia.

The measurement practice:
It is important to measure blood pressure in a person who is suffering from type 2 diabetes with or without hypertension and renal diseases. Blood pressure measurement should be repeated within a month, if the measurement is 150/190 mm Hg. BP should be measured within a couple, of months if BP is greater than 140/80 mm of Hg.

Lifestyle practices:
If a person is consistently suffering from type 2 diabetes and has a BP range of 140/80, the following life style practices should be maintained always:

  1. A daily exercise schedule: Hypertension coupled with diabetes can be a dangerous combination. To ensure that a person remains healthy it is imperative to maintain a daily exercise schedule for at least half an hour. Exercise consumes extra calories and helps a person maintain a steady blood-sugar level.
  2. Food habits: Food habit is yet another important criterion to maintain good health for a person suffering from diabetic hypertension. Avoiding starch, glucose, and food with high carbs should be a mandate. Refraining from processed food with a high density of condensed fat, sugar and oil will go a long way in maintaining good health. Consulting a nutritionist is the best way to go.
  3. Stress is yet another factor that drives diabetic hypertension: A person suffering from regular stress has a greater tendency to fall prey to cardiovascular and renal diseases. The only way to stay away from stress is to ensure that good lifestyle choice are made. A stress -free life can pay rich dividends to a person suffering from diabetic hypertension.

Drug treatment:
A doctor’s first line of treatment hovers around ACE inhibitors. A pregnant woman suffering from diabetic hypertension is typically prescribed a calcium blocker. This is an antihypertensive drug that helps to stabilize the pregnancy and keep complications at bay. For a person who is resisting to ACE Inhibitor, a doctor might subscribe angiotensin 2 receptor. If the BP is not reduced after the first line of treatment, a doctor adds a thiazide-related diuretic along with the ACE inhibitor to expedite the treatment process.

Even after a triple therapy if a person continues to suffer from high blood pressure, a doctor might prescribe an alpha-blocker, potassium blocker or a beta blocker.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

The reason is your tablet. Glyson mf. Another reason may be your irregular meal timings. You can be started with metformin 500 twice daily. Please consult your nearby diabetologist doctor as early as possible and do not indulge in self medication.

What should a person eat or not eat in case of having diabetes. What should be done to cure it.
Eat less caloric food than you spend. Do proper exercises. Use herbal combos of high quality and proper ratio. Instead of 100 items available which are general, go for individual your body nature based (prakruti anusar) formula from us. This powder may be taken irrespective of whether you take other med or not. See for 2 months.

IUI - 4 Reasons To Go For It

IUI - 4 Reasons To Go For It

Intrauterine insemination or IUI is a form of artificial insemination that involves the sperm being placed inside the uterus of a woman for bringing about fertilization. The aim of this procedure is to enhance the number of sperms that successfully reach the fallopian tubes and fertilize an egg, thereby increasing your chances of getting pregnant. Depending on the cause of your infertility, the procedure can be synchronized with fertility drugs or your ovulation cycle.

When should you go for IUI?

While reduced sperm mobility or a low sperm count may be the reason this procedure is opted for, there are certain conditions that may cause you and your partner to opt for IUI:

  • If the cause of your infertility doesn't have any medical explanation
  • Problems with ejaculation affecting the release of semen
  • Problems associated with cervical mucus can hinder the journey of the sperm from the vagina to the fallopian tubes
  • Scarring of the cervix due to past surgical procedures, rendering the sperm unable to enter the uterus

At the same time, the procedure is not recommended for women who suffer from:

  • A disease of the fallopian tubes
  • Past episodes of pelvic infections
  • Mild to severe endometriosis (a condition wherein the womb's lining grows outside it)

What happens after IUI?

The procedure takes up only a few minutes of your time and causes very little discomfort. Following the procedure, you'll be told to lie on your back for a short period of time, after which you can get back to your normal routine the same day. You can expect instances of light spotting, which will go away after two days. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Gynaecologist.

Dear Doctor .I need an advice regarding my sugar management as below -- I was noticed with PP sugar of 206 in Jan 2014 and fasting at 120. My HBa1c parameter was at 6.5. I was given Sugamet MC for almost nine months and testing was done every three months. Now -- 1.With sugamet MC 500 once a day my HBa1c is 5.6 and also the fasting sugar and PP sugar is with in normal book limits. 2.I stopped sugamet mc 500 3 months back. Now my parameters are as below -- HBa1c parameter is 6.0. Fasting sugar is 111 and PP sugar is 160 My question is --- 1.When I am in normal limits (ofcourse its near the upper limit) without medicine. Should I still take the medicine? 2.Is taking metformin preventive in nature? I mean taking Sugamet mc 500 still will prevent my sugar metabolism from worsening further? I am a regular exerciser. I spend one hour in a gym doing muscle and weight training exercises. Alternate days I go for fast walk for 2kms with stretching exercises. Its my regular routine. Diet Control ----I am on a strict diet regime. Artificial sugar in any form is out of my food list for past one year. Be it tea/coffee/milk/icecreams/sweets /cold drinks/ sharbats etc. I am consuming minimum qty of potatots and other vegetables etc which are forbidden to control sugar level. I am trying to live by book. I take oats / almonds and nuts as me breakfast before exercise. After coming from gym I take whey protein shake. Then I take my lunch at 11:30-12:00. I take mild snacks at around 5:00 p.M. Dinner is around 9:00 p.M. And Ofcourse half an hour walk after dinner daily. I am a strict vegetarian. Pls advise if I shd continue with medicine or not. Regards

Dear , bipolar affective disorder, or manic-depressive illness (mdi), is a common, severe, and persistent mental illness. This condition is a serious lifelong struggle and challenge. The treatment of bipolar affective disorder is directly related to the phase of the episode (ie, depression or mania) and the severity of that phase, and it may involve a combination of psychotherapy and medication. I request you to know more about your disorder, understand it and please do not panic. I know several people who manages their bpad effectively. Management is as good as cure. I repeat, do not panic. You will be able to manage your problem with psychotherapy and medicines. Take care.

Dear lybrateuser, - Your problem could be due to a bony growth in the heel known as spur - avoid standing for long, wear a sport shoe with proper fitting & cushion sole for proper padding effect while walking - dip foot in warm water 2-3 times a day for 10 min - do x- ray foot to know the exact cause, consult a doctor.

Please advice me whether Glyxgo tablets are beneficial for Type -2 Diabetes? L.K.Sahoo mob: 9437920027.

Please advice me whether Glyxgo tablets are beneficial for Type -2 Diabetes?
L.K.Sahoo mob: 9437920027.
Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. The said tablets are of hardly any use. There are a lot of unsubstantiated claims made. There are no clinical studies conducted to support the claims made. For controlling diabetes effectively only modern medicines along with diet control and exercise is the only option. Do not waste your time, money & efforts, thanks.
