yes but if you are not diabetic then nothing to worry about. it is always better to consume fresh fruit instead of juice as it lacks fiber.

Very heavy knee pains and unable to sit BP is normal but some times high Sugar levels are high and taking tablets.

BPTh/BPT, MPTh/MPT
Physiotherapist, Noida
Knee advice. Avoid sitting cross legged. Avoid squatting- quadriceps exercises- lie straight, make a towel role and put it under the knee, press the keen against the role, hold it for 20 secs. Repeat 20 times twice a day. This will help relieve some pain. Core strengthening exercise- straight leg raised with toes turned outward, repeat 10 times, twice a day. Hams stretching- lie straight, take the leg up, pull the feet towards yourself, with a elastic tube or normal belt. Repeat 10 times, twice a day. Sports taping- stretch the tape from both ends and apply on the affected area contrast fomentation (hot and cold).

Mr. lybrate-user, Diabetes is well controlled mainly because of drugs that you are taking. Therefore, the present treatment has to be continued along with that you will have to exercise regularly, plus take a properly planned and restricted diet that provides exact amount of calories based on ideal body weight (65 kgs), extent of daily exercise and sugar levels. Thanks.

Is running (jogging) or walking fit for diabetic patient? I am a diabetic patient. Please advice.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. For a person with diabetes (whether T1 or T2), physical exercise is a must. At your age, running, jogging as well as walking all are good. The difference being running is a high impact exercise, can burn good number of calories. Looking at your weight and height it is clear that you are having grade 1 obesity with a BMI of 30.44 kgs/M2 (normal <23 kgs). Therefore, it is good if you take up running at least 3 to4 days a week and walking on other days. Your ideal body weight should be 70 kgs. Weight reduction itself will help in better blood glucose control. If you have any doubts please do come back. Thanks.

Your fbs is quite normal. The slightly high ppbs could be because of various reasons. Some of the common ones are: 1) the food you eat; both quality & quantity matter 2) over how much time you have it 3) what you have along with it 4) exercise 5) time of taking meds try to find out which of these matter to you & the solution becomes easier.

hypothyroidism is the deficiency of the thyroid glands to produce thyroid hormone. it is a disease which is often incurable ,as there are no means to regenerate the depleting gland . but there are oral thyroid medicines available which can make up for the deficiency. so, please continue with your medicine and check your thyroid profile at regular intervals.

Unless you give reports no treatment can be prescribed. Diet control and exercise are main treatment followed by tablets or injections depending upon patients condition. Diabetes is not curable but can be easily controlled so that a person can lead a good healthy ljfe.

Infertility in Women - A Major Cause of Concern Today!

MBBS, MD
Gynaecologist, Delhi
Infertility in Women - A Major Cause of Concern Today!

Infertility refers to being able to get pregnant after one year of trying. Women who can get pregnant but are unable to stay pregnant are also termed as infertile. Ovulatory disorders are one of the most common reasons why women are unable to conceive and is presen in 30% of women suffering from infertility.

  1. Hormonal problems: Ovulation is linked with a complex balance of hormones and any disruption in the process can hinder ovulation. The disruption includes the fact that the ovaries are not producing normal follicles in which the eggs can mature. Ovulation is rare if the eggs are immature and there are no chances of fertilization. Polycystic ovary syndrome is the most common disorder responsible for infertility. Malfunction of the hypothalamus leading to failure in triggering hormonal stimulus to ovaries for egg maturation leading to immature eggs and ovarian failure. Malfunction of the pituitary gland leading to imbalance in hormonal secretion thus causing disturbance in ovulation. This can occur due to physical injury, a tumour or a chemical imbalance in the pituitary.

  2. Scarred ovaries: Ovulation failure can also be due to a physical damage to the ovaries. Invasive surgeries involving ovarian cysts leads to damaging or scarring of capsule of the ovary to become due to which follicles cannot mature leading to disruption of ovulation.

  3. Premature menopause: Early menopause or premature menopause before the normal age means that the natural supply of eggs has been depleted. This is most common in extremely athletic women with a history of low body weight and extensive exercise.

  4. Follicle problems: Infertility is also caused due to non-ruptured follicle syndrome in which women who produce a normal follicle, with an egg inside of it, every month but the follicle fails to rupture. This leads to disruption of ovulation as the egg remains inside the ovary.

  5. Others: Treating female infertility by chemotherapy is next to premature ovarian failure by loss of primordial follicles. Sexually transmitted infections are a leading cause of infertility. Tobacco smoking is detrimental to the ovaries and the amount of damage is dependent upon the amount and length of time of exposure of smoke in the environment. Nicotine in cigarettes interfere with the body’s ability to create oestrogen, a hormone that regulates ovulation. In addition, blocked fallopian tubes due to pelvic inflammatory disease or surgery for an ectopic pregnancy also causes infertility. Infertility can also be due to physical problems with the uterus or fibroids of uterus where non-cancerous clumps of tissue and muscle on the walls of the uterus. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a gynaecologist.

If the gangrene happens in the leg N th patient had the diabetic also What treatment like v had to do.

MBBS
General Physician, Kolkata
Hey. Well if the patient is diabetic and he is having gangrene in his leg, then there is less chance that he would be benefited by using intravenous antibiotics and regular dressings. Mostly, an amputation is done, so that the infection does not spread to other parts of leg. If you are having this problem, then please visit a surgeon near you, so that he can do the needful at the earliest. Please do not ignore this. I hope you understand. Take good care.

Hye. Thankyou for the query. Your condition needs a personalised diet consultation. General diet advice will not work. Diet has to be based on his blood sugar levels, food intake and insulin type and dose.

Diabetes can be controlled/managed by a proper regulated diet and exercise. Eat every two hours mini meals. Don't eat big meals. Take more green vegetables/salads.

Can you kindly explain to me how a person becomes resistant to insulin and what are the remedies if any .

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Mr. Lybrate-user, insulin resistance id mainly caused by increasing body fat. Hence, being over weight or being obese is one of the main causes. A lot of fat collects around organs inside the abdomen, (around liver, kidney and gut) this affects insulin action. Once that happens glucose level tends to go up. Resultant hyperglycemia causes glucotoxicity and further increases insulin resistance. Therefore, weight reduction, diet control and regular exercise (exercise helps muscles to use more glucose, helps reduction of blood glucose), are specifically helpful. That is why inan obese or over weight person weight reduction by even 5 to 8% produces significant blood glucose reduction as it improves insulin action. Thanks.
