Gestational Diabetes - How It Can Be Treated?

MD - Diabetology, MBBS
Diabetologist, Surat
Gestational Diabetes - How It Can Be Treated?

Women tend to develop high levels of blood sugar during their pregnancy (especially within the 24th and 28th weeks), irrespective of whether they already had suffered from diabetes prior to their pregnancy. However, gestational diabetes, if not taken proper care of, might escalate the risks of developing diabetes in the near future for both the mother and the child, accompanied by complications in pregnancy or labor. Gestational diabetes is usually characterized by mild symptoms such as excessive urge to urinate, excessive thirst, blurred vision and fatigue.

Causes:
Insulin, a hormone produced by the pancreas, allows for the utilization of the glucose for energy. The food consumed is broken down by the digestive tract of the body, converting carbohydrates into glucose before releasing it into the bloodstream. The glucose is then absorbed by the cells to be used as an energy source. Now, at the time of pregnancy, the placenta (organ nourishing the fetus) connecting the baby to the blood supply also produces various other hormones in high levels, for instance, estrogen and human placental lactogen. Most of these hinder the normal functioning of insulin in the cells, hence raising the blood sugar count. With subsequent growth of the baby, the placenta keeps on producing more amounts of such insulin resistant hormones to an extent that they are capable of meddling with the development of the baby.

Treatment:
1. Monitoring the blood sugar count at least four to five times a day and keeping it under control might help to ease the complication.
2. A healthy diet consisting of whole grains, vegetables and fruits in the right proportion and limiting sugar or other highly refined carbs meets the nutrition and fiber requirement of the body. Guard against additional weight gain during pregnancy as that hampers the entire process.
3. Exercise or regular physical activities help to normalize blood sugar level by boosting glucose absorption in the cells. Furthermore, exercises also enhance the sensitivity of the cells towards insulin. This means that only a little amount of insulin production by your body would be enough for the transportation of sugar.
4. Medication, If exercise and diet fall inadequate, insulin injections are often administered to control blood sugar count.
5. Keeping the baby under close observation with the help of repeated ultrasound and other tests to record its growth and development is an essential part of the treatment plan. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a gynaecologist.

Hi I just got to know that I have thyroid. Cn you please help me to understand what I can eat and what can not.

MS - ENT,MBBS
Ear-Nose-Throat (ENT) Specialist, Kolkata
I am outlining  food you should avoid or restrict in Hypothyroidism. It's important  you maintain  your body weight exercise regularly. Weight gain increases thyroid hormone requirements. Avoid cruciferous   group of veggies  like cabbage and broccoli. Avoid soya bean in all forms. No soya, nugget, chunk, tofu or milk. Limit their intake: Brussels sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower, kale, turnips, and bok choy. Cooking the vegetables can reduce the effect that cruciferous vegetables have on the thyroid gland. Limiting your intake to 5 ounces a day appears to have no adverse effect on thyroid function. Decrease gluten  intake from processed  food. Always try whole grain varieties of cereals which is rich in fibres and help improve  bowels (Take your thyroid replacement  medicine several hours before or several hours after food rich in fibres. Otherwise problem  with absorption  of hormone. 20 to 35 gram of fibres daily from all sources. Avoid excessive fatty (deep fried) and sugary food as hypothyroidism  causes your metabolism  to slow down &weight gain. Avoid highly salted food, chips, pickles, sauces as they Contain  large amount of sodium. Hypothyroidism  puts you at risk of high BP and excess sodium in salt aggravates Coffee  in excess. And coffee with thyroid hormone  replacement  can prevent absorption. Alcohol. It is toxic to thyroid gland and prevents  hormone production and absorption. Hope this helps

Diabetes is a condition wherein the endocrine function of the pancreas has reduced. That is insulin secretion is reduced. So maintaining a good control is about substituting the deficient insulin, controlling and regulating diet to avoid glucose overload - whether the insulin will feel overwhelmed and lastly keep up body activity to avoid excess storage of extra glucose. But thats all about maintaining - that problem is consistently present and so is your treatment. Coming out of treatment regimen - however - possible only if the original cause of the problem rectified - i. E. Insulin secretion maintained or increased. Hence, medicines can be tapered and may be finally stopped if the pancreas is able to resume secretion of insulin at normal ranges

At the time of hypoglycemic symptoms measure your sugar levels by a glucometer and we can decrease the dosages and also get your blood checked for HbA1c

Please use -- natural aphrodisiacs which can improve your libido and prevent premature ejaculation. This would include carrots, fennel seeds, celery, bananas, garlic, onion, ginger, shellfish, lettuce etc. - including these foods in your daily diet will ensure that you remain free from sexual problems, including premature ejaculation. Also take a dose of acid phos 1m/single dose and revert after 2 weeks. Stop taking agnus castus and damiaplant if this is not helping you.

A person becoming "hyper and angry" has no direct relationship to either high blood pressure or thyroid related disease. It is just the nature of the person. Only thing one has to do is make him/her learn to relax and avoid reacting immediately. If she is on treatment for hypothyroidism then TSH should be maintained between 3 to 4 mU/L, then only all the symptoms are in check. Similarly BP should be maintained 120 -130 / 70 - 80 mm Hg. Since no current readings have been mentioned, the above levels are suggested. Thanks.

General tiredness and unhealthy feeling may be due to various factors. Uncontrolled bp and/or diabetes, underlying complications for example blockages in heart, another condition like hypothyroidism or simply lack of fitness. You need to consult any physician and find out the exact cause. It may not be possible to advise online in such cases.

What causes Hashimoto's thyroiditis, and what is the best method of treatment? Can iodine help this condition?

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Hashimoto's thyroiditis (ht), is an autoimmune disease, causing lymphocytic infiltration of thyroid gland plus there are anti bodies produced by our own immune cells against thyroid peroxidase (anti tpo abs). These antibodies destroy thyroxine secreting cells in the gland, leading to hypothyroidism. The causes are not clear, genetic predisposition, viral infections and even taking excess iodinated salt have been thought to be the reasons. In usa this is the main cause of hypothyroidism, more common in women, the patient with ht usually have other members of the family having some or the other autoimmune disease or himself or herself may have another autoimmune disorder like rheumatoid arthritis or t1 diabetes. Treatment is to give thyroxine replacement for life time. Iodine has no role in the treatment.

Mr. Lybrate-user, you may just stop the anti hypertensives for a week or 4 - 5 days and check the bp. Has she had any diarrrhoea or any other dehydration problem recently. Please check bp after totally stopping the drugs (for hypertension). Plus let her take adequate fluid intake with electrolytes.

It is not necessary that children will inherit diabetes from parents. If they are healthy and fit nothing will happen to them. It is better they eat bananas than all the junk and toxic food that is available in the market. Let them eat well and be active... they will be fine. And if you also reduce your diet and weight, your symptoms can also come down.

Is black tea with lemon good for diabetics?

PGDD, RD
Dietitian/Nutritionist,
Tea is fine if not taken to suppress appetite or to wake up or to lose weight. No food benefits in isolation. So if your lifestyle and eating habits are good then in moderation it's fine.

It appears that you are having both t2dm and hypothyroidism. Please understand both these conditions can be controlled only by taking regular medications. For diabetes one has to take oral anti- diabetic drugs or insulin injections and for hypothyroidism thyroxine tablets for the whole life. There is no escape from this. As regards food in case of diabetes you have to avoid direct sugar & sweets, plus deep fried foods and fruits like mangoes, bananas, chikoos & grapes. And maintain your weight near normal for your height which is a bmi of 23 kgs/ m2 yours is 25.16 kgs/m2. Plus no smoking and alcohol. This life style has to be followed strictly.
