Mr. Lybrate-user, diabetes mellitus affects small blood vessels, so affects erectile function in many people. Especially if blood sugar is not well controlled. So primary requirement is to have excellent sugar control with fasting closer to 100 mg and pp 150 to 160 mg and hba1c% <7. If this not maintained for long time, then ed is bound to develop. Apart from tight sugar control there are certain drugs called as pde- v inhibitors which have been able to help overcoming this difficulty.

If you are indeed a type 2 diabetic, then there are more tablets available that could be used. However, some persons who are initially thought to be type 2 diabetics are infact having other types of diabetes which might require insulin. If you are the latter type, then only insulin n might not suffice.

Hi, If thyroid gland size is increasing, it may be due to goitre formation. So it is necessary to get a thyroid assay done. The result will help in a correct diagnosis of the condition. It can be Hashimoto's Thyroiditis, a simple goitre or thyrotoxicosis. Only assay will help in finding out First get the thyroid assay done and come back with the results then only I will be able to guide. Thanks.

Mr. lybrate-user, Diabetes affects small blood and large vessels, even when well controlled. If persistent hyperglycemia is present then the damage is faster and more severe. Due this the penile tissue responsible for stiffening is affected leading to ED. This is one of the most common complications of diabetes. So the primary need is to achieve very strict blood glucose control like FBS closer to 100 mg, PP 150 to 160 mg & HbA1c%<6.8. But the damage already occurred may not be corrected. Thanks.

Hi looking at your medications for controlling blood sugar there are enough oral anti daibetics. If still control is not achieved, then it is better to switch or add insulin to the therapy. That will help you to attain much better control of diabetes.

Mr. Lybrate-user, sugar substitutes like saccharine, aspartame and sucralose (splenda), all these are equally bad. The recent studies on sucralose confirm that it affects intestinal bacteria, reduces them by 50 % and leads to various problems. The earlier ones like aspartame is also not safe. Whether cancers are caused or not is a different matter, but better to avoid them. These lead to weight gain and contribute metabolic syndrome. Please make habit to avoid artficial sweeteners completely. Thanks.

Top Five Tips From The Dentist For Diabetics

Among the many health risks of diabetes is a decline in oral health that makes patients more vulnerable to gum disease. According to dental professionals, this happens because diabetes slows the body's circulation, making the gums more susceptible to infection. The metabolic disorder also increases glucose (sugar) levels in saliva, which fuels the growth of dental plaque that attacks the teeth and gums. To protect against the disorder, follow these simple tips.

1. Visit your dentist regularly.

Because diabetics are at a much higher risk of gum disease than the average patient, you should never miss a dental appointment. In fact, you should schedule regular checkups two to four times a year. With professional cleanings and regular examinations, common mouth conditions, such as ulcers, dry mouth, and infections can be controlled. To prevent bouts of low blood sugar, it may be a good idea to eat before you see your dentist. It is also crucial that you inform him or her of any oral problems you may be having -- no matter how minor they may seem.

2. Follow a strict oral hygiene regimen.

All diabetics should and really must brush and floss daily, preferably after every meal. This will help remove the plaque that can cause gum disease, thereby lowering your risk for mouth ulcers and infections. It is recommended that you complete your oral hygiene routine at least three times a day. Because your risk of oral infection is elevated, it is important to avoid aggressive brushing that can cause cuts and sores. You may even want to use a soft-bristled brush or an electric model for a safer, more comfortable brushing experience.

3. Control your blood sugar.

As we mentioned, sugar stimulates plaque growth, which causes tooth decay and gum disease. Because diabetics have more glucose (sugar) in their blood, they also tend to have a lot more plaque on their teeth. But if you can keep your blood sugar low, you can reduce your risk of periodontal disease.

4. Don't smoke.

In a perfect world, nobody would smoke -- especially people with diabetes. The unhealthy activity causes a laundry list of serious complications, including oral infections and periodontal diseases. According to dental professionals, smoking can more than double your risk of cavities and infections.

5. Clean your dentures.

If you have diabetes and you wear false teeth, you are more prone to developing oral thrush -- a fungal infection of the mouth. Typically caused by denture irritation or wear, thrush can be prevented with regular cleaning. It is also recommended that you remove your dentures in between meals to give any irritated tissue the opportunity to heal. Your dentist might also advise you to limit your sugar intake when your mouth is bothered or raw.

Mention some foods to control type2 diabetes.
For a diabetic it is best advised to have a diet planned as per the sugar levels, lifestyle and history. Though you can follow some guidelines - have small frequent meals. Do not fast for long hours. Avoid a very heavy meal at one time. Avoid fruit juices, aerated drinks or sugarcane juice, honey, jaggery or sugar. Avoid junk foods. Exercise and stay active. Do not attempt to try out too many remedies as you could go into hypoglycaemia. Sleep well. It's all a matter of discipline.
