You are not responding to medicines you are taking. May be you need insulin. Or something is really wrong with your diet. Your weight also needs to be in normal range.

Do your hba1c. Hba1c will show you exact diabetes control. Fasting and post meals sugar will show particular day glucose reading. Fbs and ppbs is trailer of diabetes, hba1c is entire movie. Do your hba1c from srl or metropolis.

Dear lybrate user, I am very sorry to hear about your loss. Losing your dad at this age and in a road accident must have been very traumatic for you. You and your mother are going through a very difficult phase in your life. Your dad's tragic and sudden death has affected you both, but in different ways. There is loss support and sudden increase in the responsibilities for you both. This might be causing a huge burden on you both and you might be feeling insecure and lost. At this difficult time when you are emotionally stressed out, it will be difficult for you to live life normally. You may need some more time to come out of this grief. It is advisable to share your sad feelings with each other and/or with your respective friends and relatives. You both need to talk about your pain with someone. It will relieve you of some pain and sadness. I hope your mother is on medication for bp. I would suggest that you both take an appointment with a counsellor, who will help you in this difficult situation so that eventually you both can move on with life. Take care.

Weight gain precedes the onset of diabetes

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Weight gain precedes the onset of diabetes
Weight gain after age 18 years in women and after age 20 years in men also increases the risk of type 2 diabetes.

The Nurses’ Health Study, compared women with stable weight (those who gained or lost <5 kg) after the age of 18 years to women who gained weight. Those who had gained 5–8 kg had a relative risk of diabetes of 1.9; this risk increased to 2.7 for women who gained 8–11 kg.
Similar findings were noted in men in the Health Professionals Study.

Thus, the excess risk for diabetes with even modest weight gain is substantial.

Weight gain precedes the onset of diabetes. Among Pima Indians (a group with a particularly high incidence of type 2 Diabetes), body weight gradually increased 30 kg (from 60 kg to 90 kg) in the years preceding the diagnosis of diabetes.

hyperthyroidism is a condition which can only be controlled by taking drugs as you are doing, or thyroidectomy (removal of thyroid) may have to be undertaken. Or by using radio active iodine the gland's activity is curtailed. Once that is done you will have to take thyroxine tablets to replace the hormone. There are no medications to curtail the glandular activity than methods mentioned above.

Mr. Lybrate-user. Diabetes is occurring either due to lack of insulin or resistance to its action, mainly because of being over weight and secondly due inactivity and junk foods. This true incase of t2 dm. In t1 insulin producing beta cells in pancreas are destroyed due antibodies. T1 is an autoimmune disease. These are two main types of diabetes. In both types insulin has to be provided (t1 by injections of insulin) in t2 stimulating insulin secretion. Since this hormone is required every single moment in our body, there is no way of curing the condition. It can only be controlled. Similarly in high bp also there are multiple triggers involved, each can not exactly identified and removed. So cure is not possible. Here too over weight, obesity, inactivity, high fat, excess salt plus various other triggers are active, and the process continues for lifetime, hence only control is possible. Similarly there a host of diseases where ther is no cure available in spite of great advances in medicine. I understand your concern, but that is the fact. May some time later science will be able to find a cure for all diseases, let us hope. Thanks.

You need to confirm your low cortisol levels with an overnight dexamethasone suppression test or a 24 hr urinary cortisol or a midnight salivary cortisol levels. If it is really low, then it has to be worked up properly to find out the cause & treated accordingly.

What does Type I Diabetes mean? What does Type II Diabetes mean? What is the difference between both?

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
What does Type I Diabetes mean?
What does Type II Diabetes mean?
What is the difference between both?
Lybrate-user, t1 diabetes is an autoimmune disease, where there are antibodies seen which destroy insulin producing cells, this leads to total deficiency of insulin. Person needs insulin for treatment and for survival. Usually ocurs in much younger age. Earlier called as juvenile diabetes. T2 is due to either lack of insulin or resistance to its action or both. This is seen in people with over weight and who are very inactive. It can be treated by oral anti diabetes drugs alone or even insulin. Some times both are used together. Dietary control and regular exercise also are required for better control. Plus this is seen spreading with in the families. But also is preventable if modified lifestyle is adapted.

CHEW MORE, EAT LESS: Studies show that the longer time you spend chewing, the lesser calories you consume. Chewing for longer prevents over-eating, by giving the brain more time to receive signals from the stomach that it is full. It is not only great for digesting, but it also helps in limiting your portion size. Try chewing your food 35 to 50 times per mouthful. DON' T SKIP BREAKFAST: No matter how late you are running to work, avoid missing breakfast. There is a reason why it is called the most important meal of the day. Your body (rather your brain) expects to be refueled a few times each day, so when you skip breakfast, you feel so hungry that when lunch time comes, you overeat or maybe choose foods items that are not the healthiest choices. Missing breakfast slows down your metabolism. More importantly, always eat your breakfast, within an hour of waking up, as your body has gone without food the entire night. CONCENTRATE ON YOUR FOOD: How many times has your mother reprimanded you to not talk, read or watch TV while eating food? Not without a reason. When you are multitasking during meal times, your brain isn' t focussing on the amount of food that you are consuming and you are more prone to piling on pounds. This doesn' t mean that you cannot enjoy a meal with your friends. You can do so, but just pay attention to what you are putting in your mouth! DON' T OVERCOOK YOUR MEALS: Overcooking food kills or reduces the number of nutrients your meal contains, and when you don' t get enough nutrients, you don' t feel satisfied and soon start to get junk food cravings. To combat this, try eating more raw foods like sushi and salads. Steam, bake, blanch or grill vegetables and grill or bake meat and fish. Avoid microwaving. FRUITS BEFORE MEALS: It is advisable to eat fruits at least 30 minutes before any heavy meal. This way, the fruits will digest quickly. Eating fruits on an empty stomach detoxifies your system and supplies you with a great deal of energy for losing weight. HAVE SMALLER MEALS, MORE OFTEN: Ideally, you should eat five to six times per day, with a two to three hour break between each meal or snack. Eating more frequently gets your metabolism going and keeps it working at an elevated level continuously throughout the day. But don' t use this rule as an excuse to overeat. AVOID EATING AFTER 8 PM: It' s good to eat your last meal before eight in the evening. This way you don' t land up binging on a snack before dinner time. If you find it hard to resist, have some herbal tea or brush your teeth after dinner immediately to switch your mind off from the idea of eating. THINK AND DRINK: While everyone knows it' s necessary to drink at least eight to 10 glasses of water, very few know when one should consume it. When you drink is as important as what you drink. If you drink water in-between meals, the liquid slows down digestion, diluting the acid in your stomach and so the nutrients from the food that you eat are not well absorbed. To avoid this try to drink water 15 minutes before or after a meal, and if you really need to drink while you eat, limit yourself to small sips only. Consult privately for personalised management.
