Hai. I am having type 2 diabetes for past 2 months. My age is 22. Is there any possibility to get pregnant.
If you are keen having a child, then it is possible. Only thing is before you decide on getting conceived you will have to achieve very strict blood sugar control. Hence before conceiving start on insulin injection and continue on the same through out the pregnancy. Also get your eyes examined for retinal involvement before and during pregnancy. It is absolutely essential. During pregnancy blood sugar levels have to be maintained between 90 to 120 mg through out the day. So you will have to be under the care of en expert diabetologist along with your gynecologist.

Hello sir, Please tell me is there any treatment for reduced erection due to diabetes .

Hello sir, Please tell me is there any treatment for reduced erection due to diabetes .
Try kegel exercises this is a great way of strengthening your pelvic muscles and gain strength for sex. It is like going to the gym, but for sex. Let me tell you how to do kegel exercises. You have to practice it first. When you urinate, try to stop the flow of urine without your hands, just by contracting your muscles. The muscles you contract then are the pelvic muscles that are used during sex. Do not do this while urinating again, you can do this while you are sitting or standing, while working or doing other things. Once you know how to contract them try doing this a few times every day and this will strengthen them. Aim for at least three sets of 10 repetitions a day. You should see results in a few week.

Dear Lybrate User, Protein is one of the most vital nutritional substances which are required for human body. Almost every high protein diet contains purine. This purine produces uric acid on oxidation. Excess uric acid is accumulated at the joints of human beings as urate salts. This accumulation of urate salts lead to pain & swelling of those affected joints & this condition is clinically known as gout. You should avoid high protein rich diet like mutton, chicken, beef, eggs, sea fish, spinach, garden pea, tomato, lentils etc. Also you need to take Homoeopathic Mother Tincture URTICA URENS Q, 30 drops, thrice daily, after meals, in a cup of water. This medicine will help to dissolve the accumulated excess urate salts from the joints.

Ms. Lybrate-user diabetic is a systemic disease which can affect each and every cell / part of your body depending upon the genetic predisposition i. E. What you have acquired from your parent that is genetic predisposition and rest is your approach / attitude towards life -- give me the full detale like tendency for gas formation linked to eatable things, stress, sleep, life style and what way they are disturbing you like heavyness abd with burps/gastric reflux or pain abdomen or irregular bowl moments like constipation or recurrent stomach upset along with the status of your body in general like your menstruation, white discharge, lack of energy pains any where etc. Along with symptoms of skin - what triggers your itching like heat, waering synthetics, or even stress well every thing is interlinked in homoeopathy as we consider the body as a single unit instead of diving in to different parts -- so donot hesitate in narrating / sharing all these things of you and your husband to get those treated differently as medicines vary from person to person and even for a single disease.

Hello, there are mainly 2 types of diabetes are present. T1 dm where there is no insulin produced in the body, these patients need for treatment and survival only insulin injection. T2 dm where there is lack of insulin or/and there may be resistance to its action. This is commonest variety with 90 to 95% patients belonging to this category. It runs in the families. Can be treated by oral drugs and / or insulin. Fasting sugar >126 mg and pp 200 mg and above is diagnosed as diabetes. This needs treatment. Reducing hyperglycemia is a must to prevent or delay the long term complications of diabetes. Drugs, controlled diet and weight reduction and exercise are part of the treatment.

The majority of health research is stacked against sugar-sweetened soda.

Mr. Lybrate-user, yes you are right, sweetened aerated drinks are one of the major problems leading to overweight and related conditions like diabetes. Similarly junk food and pastries and highly processed food, fructose corn syrup containing products also are the ones causing various health related issues in today's younger population. Adding to thjis is the inactivity. So we need to motivate younger generation to move away from these harmful foods and hit the ground for exercise.

I am 30 year old man I am a uric acid problem for which I am getting right leg and backpain.

MBBS, MD - Internal Medicine
Internal Medicine Specialist, Faridabad
A high uric acid level can be caused when your body either produces too much uric acid or your kidneys don't eliminate uric acid rapidly enough. A high uric acid level may cause increasingly frequent attacks of gout, or it may never cause problems. A high uric acid level may also cause some people to develop kidney stones or kidney failure. And some people with a high uric acid level also develop high blood pressure, heart disease or chronic kidney disease, but it's often unclear whether this is a direct cause or merely an early warning sign of these conditions. Factors that may cause a high uric acid level in your blood include: Diuretic medications (water pills),Drinking too much alcohol,Genetics (inherited tendencies),hypothyroidism (underactive thyroid),Immune-suppressing drugs,Niacin, or vitamin B-3, obesity,psoriasis, Purine-rich diet — organ meat, game meat, anchovies, herring, gravy, dried beans, driedpeas, mushrooms and other foods Renal insufficiency — inability of the kidneys to filter waste Tumor lysis syndrome — a rapid release of cells into the blood caused by certain cancers or by chemotherapy for those cancers,Also, you may be monitored for high uric acid levels when undergoing chemotherapy or radiation treatment for cancer. Avoid protein diets, avoid more milk products. bad habits , fast food/fat/oily,salty foods. Coffee, smoking, alcohol intake. Non-veg., take whole grain,oats,green veg.,plenty of water in day time, 1 glass of water at night before bed. Take tab. Zyloric 100 mg once a day. Tab. Ulracet sos for pain in joints.

I have thyroid what are the easy methods to reduce it?

CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology, MBBS
Endocrinologist,
You mean it is hypothyroidism, which is lack of thyroxine secretion. Treatment for this condition is taking the thyroxine hormone. The dosage will depend upon the tsh level. I am sure doctor must have already mentioned about it.

Fertility Enhancing diet-

• Essential Fatty Acids

EFA are essential for getting pregnant. Omega 3 fat is necessary to maintain the balanced production of hormone-like substances called prostaglandins. They can also increase blood flow to reproductive organs, increase cervical mucus, and promote ovulation.

1 tsp. of fish oil per day is recommended for women consuming animal products while 1 tbsp. of flax oil per day is recommended for women not consuming animal products.

• Vitamin B12

Many women who are not able to conceive are deficient in Vitamin B12. B12 will help to balance hormone imbalances, essential for cell formation, aids in nutrient absorption and metabolism as well as overall digestion.

It is also important for the nervous system, blood supply, and the development of red blood cells.Women who are trying to get pregnant and have a B12 deficiency may not be ovulating and may have abnormal estrogen levels which can affect implantation of a fertilized egg.

B12 deficiency has also been linked to cell abnormalities of the reproductive tract which may even be diagnosed as cervical dysplasia. Vitamin B12 is found in the gut of animals and, therefore, cannot be obtained through plants. Women following a vegan or vegetarian diet are often low in B12 and should use supplements. Women trying to get pregnant, and pregnant women throughout their pregnancy should be consuming 2.6 mcg of B12 per day.
Beside taking supplements, if you’re trying to conceive, you should increase intake of beef, poultry, fish, fortified dairy or nondairy products as well as booster foods such as nutritional yeast. B12 shots are also effective.

• Protein

If you’re trying to get pregnant, you should be increasing the protein intake to about 25% of what you have previously been eating. High-quality protein with all amino acids is the best option, high-quality animal protein is also sources of other important nutrients such as iron, and B-vitamins.

• Folic Acid

Folic acid is one of the best-known vitamins to aid in pregnancy. It is essential for preventing neural tube defects, congenital heart defects, cleft lips, limb defects, as well as urinary tract defects in the baby.

Deficiency in folic acid can also increase infertility and cause pre-term labor. Folic acid can be found in liver, lentils, beans, black beans, asparagus, spinach, and broccoli. If you’re taking a supplement, then it should be should be between 600-120mcg per day.

Is diabetes curable?

Fellowship in Diabetes Management, MBBS
General Physician,
Nope. It is not curable, infact its progressive disease. It can controlled with medicines, diet, and lifestyle modifications. Do not fall prey to some who states that they can cure diabetes, and then start on alternative therapy. It could be dangerous.

My cousin suffers from thyroid problem from past 1 year. please how to cure this one she is using tablets but no use.

CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology, MBBS
Endocrinologist,
Hi lybrate-user, If hypothyroidism is present, then only treatment option is taking Thyroxine tablets for lifetime. There is no cure. This is a hormone deficiency disorder. Thyroxine hormone produced by thyroid gland is needed for development and day to day functioning of brain, plus for every single vital metabolic reaction that takes place in the body. So it is needed every single day. Since in hypothyroidism there is deficiency of this hormone, it has to be supplemented daily for lifetime. There is no cure for it. Thanks.
