Sir, I am 52 years old suffering from diabetics & hypertension, using medication fir both. But bp not getting controlled, for bp I am using ctdl 12.5l 50 & amolkind5mg. Please advise.

Having diabetes makes high blood pressure and other heart and circulation problems more likely, because diabetes damages arteries and makes them targets for hardening (atherosclerosis). Atherosclerosis can cause high blood pressure, which if not treated, can lead to blood vessel damage, stroke, heart failure, heart attack, or kidney failure. You can consult me in private for detailed treatment which is available in biochemic system of medicine depending upon symptomatically. Eatng lots of garlic. If you cant have it get it homeopathically allium sativum (biochemic) nat phos 30x, avoid all types of fats and red meat.

Mr. Lybrate-user, uncontrolled diabetes, does affect various organs and a number of functions in our body. Peripheral neuropathy is one of those complications of diabetes. This leads to pain and burning sensation in feet as well as burning sensation. The drug pragabalin is quite effective for reducing the pain. But prime need is strict blood sugar control - fasting closer to 100 mg and pp 150 to 160 mg, hba1c%<7. If this is not achieved other drugs may not show much benefit. So see tha blood sugar levels are controlled better.

See one thing we don't know generally is, it is not like we see in movies that a single time unprotected sexual intercourse in fertile period of woman makes her pregnant, actually scientifically whole human race have only 20-25% fertility chances to get pregnancy even if both partners are completely normal & had sex every single day of the fertile period. So ideally it is advisable to wait & keep try for 1 year, only after that you should consult about infertility. Even though, meanwhile you can rule out major causes of infertility after 4-6 months like semen analysis of male partner at your convenient pathological lab & sonography of female partner for any anatomical deformity of uterus, pcod or others & also do blood test of female partner like tsh, cbc, urine routine micro, rbs to be sure. Also you should know when to have sex: considering 28 days of average menses cycle with day 1 as first day of last menses period, normally 10th day to 20th day are considered fertile period, every alternate day sex between 10th day to 20th day of cycle is ideal to get pregnancy.

Hello, if diabetes is in control, then fasting should be closer to 100 mg and pp 150 to 160 mg and hba1c% <6.8. If you are fit and sugar levels are normal there is no need to feel any of these symptoms. If possible you should move away from the chair after each 30 minute period for about 2 - 3 minutes, that should reduce the strain. Stand up or just walk a few steps. Learn relaxing techniques and use them at the end of the day so as to relieve all the stress.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. No one predict whether your TSH will go up in future or not. At present it is absolutely normal. Only way to prevent becoming hypothyroid is to take regular iodinated salt. No other precaution is needed. Thanks.

Mr. lybrate-user, Hypothyroidism is a deficiency disorder, where thyroid gland produces less or nil thyroxine. Thyroxine is an essential hormone required for day to day functioning and development of brain, plus involved in a variety of vital metabolic reactions in the body hence required every moment in the body. Therefore, it has to be supplemented every day for the lifetime. So treatment will be for whole life. Thanks.

If you manage your diet well and eat proteins like egg, fish, chicken or paneer or beans, then your protein requirements will be taken care off. With every meal eat a little bit of protein. Lower the amount of starches from your meals and add healthy oils like ghee, cold pressed coconut oil, cold pressed til oil. If at all you want to supplement then you can use whey protein powder.

TSH 13.39 is definitely high and suggestive of hypothyroidism means your thyroid gland is not making thyroid hormone as per your bodi's requirement, which is required for proper metabolism. Hence you have to take it in the form of medicine. If you are suspecious of report you can get it repeat and if still high consult a physician. It is not life threatening if take thyroid medicine as per requirement which is judge by regular estimation of TSH.

Diabetes - How It Affects a Woman's Health?

Diabetes - How It Affects a Woman's Health?

Are you a woman suffering from diabetes? Diabetes is a group of metabolic diseases in which your blood sugar levels shoot up because of problems in the processing and production of insulin. Diabetes occurs in both men and women. However, there are some primary differences and contrasts between diabetes in men and in women.

Symptoms
The symptoms of diabetes in women are almost the same as those in men, except for some unique symptoms pertaining only to women, which include the following:

  1. Development of oral and vaginal yeast infections, along with vaginal thrush
  2. Urinary infections
  3. Sexual dysfunction
  4. Development of polycystic ovary syndrome

The common, general symptoms found in both men and women include a frequent urge for urination, enhanced hunger and thirst, fatigue, blurry vision, and sudden gain or loss of weight without obvious causes. Skin infections, irritability, nausea, darkening of skin in patches, a reduced feeling in the hands and feet are other general symptoms.

Diabetes and pregnancy
Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes

If you are pregnant and have diabetes, you should consult your doctor to know about the best ways of managing your health, and the health of your baby. It is important to track down your blood glucose levels before and during your pregnancy. While you are pregnant, glucose and ketones reach your baby via the placenta, and the baby utilizes this as energy. As such, too high glucose levels may leave your baby at risk.

Gestational diabetes
This form of diabetes occurs in 9% of pregnancies in which the pregnancy hormones interfere with how insulin works. This results in the body making more insulin. In some women, the insulin produced is not enough and therefore, gestational diabetes develops.
Risk factors

Women are more prone to diabetes when the following factors are present:

  1. If you are above the age of 45
  2. If you are obese and have a family history of diabetes
  3. If you gave birth to a baby who weighed more than nine pounds
  4. If you have hypertension or high blood pressure, and high cholesterol
  5. If you are not into any form of exercise
  6. If you suffer from other health conditions, which are linked with insulin problems like PCOS or polycystic ovarian syndrome, or are having a history of stroke and heart diseases

There are certain prominent differences between diabetes occurring in men and women. Women receive less aggressive treatment for other conditions associated with diabetes. The complications caused in women because of diabetes are more challenging to diagnose properly. Moreover, the hormones and inflammation also work differently in the case of women. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Gynaecologist.
