The causes can be many. Firstly i would want u to tell me your creatinine values. Second, are u 100% complaint to ur medicines? If you are then may be we need to find the cause for the high bp. That may involve adding a new drug or adjusting the doses of ur old drugs. Also we need to search if any other causes are there for ur HTN.

First of all, get this test repeated from a different laboratory of good reputation. It may be that this test report may have varied result. Secondly, if your report is this high then your medicine dose need to be adjusted as soon as possible. In this regard, I would further advice to get tested asap and follow up on Lybrate.

Mr. lybrate-user, If one is on treatment for hypothyroidism, then to be in control of all the symptoms including joint and muscle pains, TSH should be maintained between 3 to 4 mU/L. If that is achieved then most of the symptoms are in check. Thanks.

There are many types of insulinis. Most of them are available in pen. If you are type 1, you would benefit from buying a permanent insulin pen. You would only have to change the cartridges when the insulin gets over inside. Most companies have helplines in place to assist taking of the injections.

I am 25 years female. Today I did diabetes test from a pharmacy. My reading was 6.2.I did it because I had high pressure since last few days. Is that reading normal? Do I have any possibility of diabetes?

A1c level of 6.2 indicates that you are at 'Pre-diabetic' stage. It means you are on the borderline. If you take proper precautions now, you can control your sugar level. Your reading of A1c indicates level of glucose in your blood of past 3 months, hence it can't happen due to high pressure in last few days. Diabetes can be controlled/managed by a proper regulated diet and exercise. 1. Eat every two hours mini meals. Don't eat big meals. Take more green vegetables/salads. 2. Eat whole grain food/grains like ragi, wheat, jowar instead of refined grains like maida/ sooji/ white bread etc. 3. Reduce foods with high GI Index like potato, white rice, banana, mango. 4. Avoid all forms of simple sugars like Colas, juices, sweets, cakes, biscuits, pizzas, noodles etc. 5. Eat daily fruits with low/medium GI index like apple, guava, mosambi, orange. 6. Eat lot of proteins like dals, sprouts, egg, chicken etc with every minimeal. 7. Drink lot of water. One glass every hour. 8. Do at least 30-45 mins of exercise everyday. 9. Aim to reduce your weight by at least 5 kgs. This will reduce your sugar levels.

Hi, Blood sugar may fluctuate for many reasons like food, activity etc. Please make sure that your test was done accurately and do a test again after a week. Consult a doctor before making any conclusion, it can be a technical glitch in your report. But if your blood sugar is high don't leave it unattended. Please note that most of the people are diagnosed with diabetes when blood test is done for some other diseases. Diabetes may not show any evident symptoms for a long time but will be putting extra load on vital organs like kidneys, liver etc. It is always better to prevent diseases than curing them later.

My mom is diabetic and she is suffering from nerve damage. She is nearly 80 is there any suggestions.
lybrate-user, Peripheral neuropathy is usually observed in almost every single patient with long term diabetes. In such situation most important is to maintain a strict blood glucose control with fasting blood glucose level closer to 100 mg, PP 160 to 180 mg & HbA1c%<7. Plus patient needs to be put on certain drugs which help in controlling pain and burning sensation. Plus patient should take care that there are no injuries to either toes or feet, as sensation is either altered or less. Therefore the injuries can become very serious problem. Should always wear a comfortable foot wear at home and outside. Thanks.

Will a person with Type 2 diabetes under control end up with the need for insulin?

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Will a person with Type 2 diabetes under control end up with the need for insulin?
lybrate-user, If a person with T2 DM has well controlled blood glucose levels, then there may not be any need for Insulin injections. But invariably when a person has diabetes for many years (20 plus or more), insulin producing cells in pancreas may progressively decrease in number mainly due to aging, then there is a possibility to shift on to insulin. Because oral drugs act by stimulating beta cells to produce insulin or help reducing the resistance to its action. When this happens then glucose control with oral drugs is not adequate. Thanks.

Beat Infertility

Masters in Human Nutrition and Nutraceuticals
Dietitian/Nutritionist, Madurai
Beat Infertility

Infertility is the term usually described to a condition when a “woman” who is unable to conceive even after 6 months of unprotected sex. Its usually a self diagnosable condition which is treated by medical professional. A woman should seek a medical treatment when she is 35 or above by trying more than 6 months of unprotected sex. There are several treatments like “invitro” fertilization that provides good results for the infertile couples.
The main cause may include irregular periods, thyroid problems, diabetes, or hormonal imbalances. 

As a dietitian, I would extend my hands and request you all people reading this to join my hands and lets begin to beat infertility through dietary modifications and lifestyle pattern changes.

 Here are the foods to be avoided while you are trying to conceive.

Red meat since it possess high ammonia, that would interfere in the implantation of uterus. Its high acidic content, reduces the sperm cell count and lead to infertile condition.

Avoid trans fats in baked foods, processed foods, fried foods, in simple avoid eating out. Have a healthy foods prepared in home with less oils. The consumption may decrease your insulin and so makes you diabetic.

Avoid refined sugars instead take honey, jaggery, for sweetness. 

It’s good to avoid non organic chicken that may produce imbalance in your hormones and thus leading to infertility. 

Complete avoidance of alcohol

So, its not about the complete avoidance, you can have it occasionally. So be chill that you wont be pushed to that extreme of total abstinence to these foods. But there are some foods that I would prefer you to consume often or even daily. Here is the list

Beans, the vegetable with full of vitamins and minerals, provides you all healthy beneficiaries, as it aids in the digestion, keeps your body toxic free, so that the sperms that enters have a healthy atmosphere for development. 

Leafy vegetables the essential food in all healthy diet plan, since it contains folate the vitamin, that is required for improving ovulation. 

Pumpkin, specially its seeds, for the iron it provides.

Take complex carbs like whole wheat, brown rice, etc. As it may protect you from getting diabetes.

Olive oil possessing good amount of monounsaturated oil, helps in lowering the inflammation if there is any.

Treating Infertility Caused by PCOS With IVF

MBBS, DGO, MD, Fellowship in Gynae Oncology
Gynaecologist, Delhi
Treating Infertility Caused by PCOS With IVF

PCOS is an abbreviation for Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome. It is a problem that is caused in women when their hormones are out of balance. It affects menstrual periods and can even hinder conception when aggravated to an advanced stage. Many women having PCOS develop small cysts on their ovaries. These cysts might not be harmful, but they lead to hormonal imbalances. 

Common symptoms include:

  1. Gain of weight or Weight loss problems
  2. Acne
  3. Excess hair on body and face
  4. Irregularities in periods
  5. Fertility problems
  6. Depression

It is possible for most women with PCOS who fail to attain pregnancy easily to use other treatments to get pregnant. Using In vitro fertilization (IVF) is one such mode of treatment. The procedure is helpful if done within the age of forty. You should undergo IVF only in a high quality clinic under the supervision of an experienced doctor.

There is a considerable amount of risk of having a higher order multiple pregnancy due to treatment of PCOS infertility using injectable gonadotrophins. Recent developments have allowed the patients to maintain high rates of pregnancy while simultaneously controlling the risk of multiple pregnancy. A variant of the standard IVF treatment known as Blastocyst embryo transfer is useful in the control of multiple birth rates. Generally, success rates for IVF treatment in cases where infertility is caused due to PCOS is quite high.

IVF Protocols for PCOS
There are two simulation protocols that are commonly used with PCOS:

  1. Ganirelix with Lupron trigger protocol: Used to avoid ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome.
  2. PCOS down-regulation protocol

This protocol combines:

  1. Oral Contraceptive Pills
  2. Metformin

A calendar is followed for the down regulation protocol for PCOS. Before starting with Lupron, a dosage ( 500 mg, 3 times a day) of metformin is followed daily. After this, oral contraceptive pills are prescribed for around 21 days. Lupron coincides with the last 3 pills of birth control. 

Lupron is a subcutaneous injection of a medicine that is taken once daily. Simulation of the ovaries is initiated after 6 or 7 days without using pills. It is very important with polycystic ovary that the dose of FSH hormone is properly controlled and that the ovarian response is cautiously monitored. Over response to the treatment can cause ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome. This should be avoided.
