Yes hba1c of less than 7 is advisable according to ada criteria. Hba1c is average test for last 3 months blood sugar control and more reliable test. Get it checked. More tighter control in elderly risks frequent hypoglycemia episodes so tighter control without hypoglycemia is to be targetted.

4 Tips to Keep Diabetes at Bay

MD - Internal Medicine, MBBS
Internal Medicine Specialist, Delhi
4 Tips to Keep Diabetes at Bay

Diabetes is also known as diabetes mellitus, is a group of metabolic diseases, which raises the glucose level in the blood. If suffering from diabetes, parts of your body might get affected with other diseases as well, like bad eyesight, etc. 

Diabetes is of 3 types:

  1. Type 1 Diabetes: where your body stops insulin production.
  2. Type 2 Diabetes: where your body does not produce enough insulin to function on or where the cells of your body do not react toward the insulin produced
  3. Gestational Diabetes: This is the diabetes you or your partner may suffer from during pregnancy.

Suffering from diabetes can make your lifestyle extremely difficult as you will have to go through a lot of restrictions. In order to avoid diabetes and its various outcomes, here are some tips you can follow:

  1. Keep your weight in control: Make sure you are of the right weight according to your height. If you are more than what you should weigh, and you are creeping towards obesity, you have a high chance of succumbing to diabetes. If you are already obese, start working towards losing weight. Even if you lose 5% of your weight, you will slash the risk of having diabetes by 70%. 
  2. Walk: No exercise is better and easier than walking. Try walking as much as you can. Walking will help you reduce the risk of getting affected with diabetes. If you walk for around 35 minutes every day, you are cutting down the risk of diabetes by almost 30%. Walking, being an exercise, helps your body use the insulin produced in your body more efficiently. 
  3. Drink coffee: Coffee, unlike common belief of being harmful, is actually very beneficial when it comes to keeping diabetes at bay. Coffee contains caffeine, which is believed to improve metabolism. Coffee also has potassium, magnesium and various antioxidants which enable the cells to absorb glucose. Drinking coffee regularly might lower the risk of diabetes by 29%.
  4. Get proper rest at night: If you sleep for less than 6 hours every night, then the risk of you suffering from diabetes is doubled. But that doesn't mean you are supposed to oversleep. If you sleep more than 8 hours, the risk of being affected with it rises to almost 75%. Hence sleep at least for 6 to 8 hours each night for a healthy life sans diabetes.

Dear lybrateuser, -there is always a chance to get the disease if the parent has it but it can be avoided if you lead a healthy life including proper diet & exercise -have a diet rich in fruits (avoid banana, chickoo, mango, as they are high in sugars) & vegetables, more of green leafy ones -avoid fried, processed & junk food, use cooking oil sparingly about 1 teaspoonful per day, also restrict full fat dairy products, red meat -do regular exercise for 30-40 min like walking, jogging, cycling, swimming, play outdoor games, also include moderate weight lifting in your exercise regimen as muscles help burn sugar faster & keep blood sugar under control -to reduce stress do yoga & meditation for 5-10 min daily -keep a check on your weight, bp, blood sugar, cholesterol at least once in two years to prevent the disorder in future -get your vision checked as diabetes affects vision if sugar is high.

Hello Sir, I have been suffering from severe ache in left heel. I couldn't walk for a few steps when I get out from bed in the morning. I have been taking pain killers and applying volini, hot and cold packs. But the ache is aggravating rather than diminishing. I do suspect either Plantar or Heel spur. please guide me further. Does diabetes have such symptoms only in one leg?

Try few home remedies for heel pain rest - avoid running or standing for long periods, or walking on hard surfaces. Avoid activities that may stress the heels. Ice - place an ice-pack on the affected area for about 15 minutes. Do not place bare ice directly onto skin. Footwear - proper-fitting shoes that provide good support are crucial. Athletes should be particularly fussy about the shoes they use when practicing or competing - sports shoes need to be replaced at specific intervals (ask your trainer). Foot supports - wedges and heel cups can help relieve symptoms. If these doesn't help please see a physiotherapist who can teach you exercises which stretch the plantar fascia and achilles tendon, as well as strengthening the lower leg muscles, resulting in better stabilization of the ankle and heel. You may also be taught how to apply athletic taping, which gives the bottom of the foot better support. Prevention of heel pain involves reducing the stress on that part of the body. Tips include: barefeet - when on hard ground make sure you are wearing shoes. Bodyweight - if you are overweight there is more stress on the heels when you walk or run. Try to lose weight. Footwear - footwear that has material which can absorb some of the stress placed on the heel may help protect it. Examples include heel pads. Make sure your shoes fit properly and do not have worn down heels or soles. If you notice a link between a particular pair of shoes and heel pain, stop wearing them. Rest - if you are especially susceptible to heel pain, try to spend more time resting and less time on your feet. It is best to discuss this point with a specialized health care professional. Sports - warm up properly before engaging in activities that may place lots of stress on the heels. Make sure you have proper sports shoes for your task. Best wishes.

Sugar levels are consistently 150 fasting and 250 PP (HBA1C 8.5) Tried Oxra 10 but had to stop due to infection Please advice if insulin is better than strong oral medications. Also confirm if the same nay be discontinued after sugar is under control. I feel medications are causing complications for me also leading to constipation & acidity.

As you know, your diabetes is not under control and its not good for your health. Yes, its better to take insulin to control diabetes when your sugar levels are high with 2 or more oral medicines. And yes, insulin can be discontinued after diabetes is under control, but that should be supervised and decision taken by your treating doctor.

Hello, Go for protein powder without added sugar. Baby weight has to be monitored through serial scans because in diabetes, Macrosomia is quite common. Monitor your blood sugar levels and go for regular antenatal care.

Eosinophil count is increased which shows she is having allergy. All of the allergies, what is done, is avoid direct contact with the allergen. As a routine doctors do prescribe antihistamincs and/or steroids in the form of oral, local. And injectable medicines. Allergy tests are avaible and after finding the specific antigen, desensitization also can be done. Thyroid if increased, or decreased will have different treatments. Hope you are helped regads.
