My daughter aged 14 years is type 1 diabetic diagnosed recently. She is taking insulin injections 3 to 4 times a day. Her hands and thighs are all full of injections pricks. Swelling has started now on the places where we try to give injections. Kindly suggest.

Pediatrician, Tumkur
You can give insulin injection on the abdomen. You have to rotate the site of injection to avoid swelling. Suppose you give today on left top, tomorrow right top, then right down & so on.

As to why our waists are thickening preferentially, there is no decisive answer. Dr. Ford and colleagues speculate in their article about a number of potential explanations. I am inclined to think that a shift toward diets featuring ever more high-glycemic starches and added sugars is among the smoking guns. High glycemic diets trigger elevations of insulin, and among its many effects, insulin favors the deposition of calories around the middle.
And at that point, the plot thickens along with our waistlines. The deposition of those excess calories as fat around our middles, and in particular in our livers, leads directly to insulin resistance, and higher levels of insulin still. That, in turn, fosters more accumulation of centrally distributed fat, and a degenerating spiral ensues that leads to diabetes, and nowhere good

I am thyroid patient since 2006 and taking 25 mg tab tyhronorms daily is there any possibility to reduce that ?

Homoeopathy is the only possibility in which you can get rid of your athyronorm but the path is difficult but fruitful. Firstly we will totally eliminate this tablet from your life in 6-8 months and thereafter we will give medicines for permanent cure of your problem.

Try to conceive after your tsh level normalise. By the time, your periods would also regularise. Abnormalities in thyroid can cause problems with the fetus.

Cholesterol level should be measured at least once every five years in everyone over age 20. The screening test that is usually performed is a blood test called a lipid profile. Experts recommend that men ages 35 and older and women ages 45 and older be more frequently screened for lipid disorders. The lipoprotein profile includes: Total cholesetrol LDL (low-density lipoprotein CHOLESETROL also called "bad"CHOLESTETROL HDL (high-density lipoprotein cholesterol, also called "good" cholesterol) TRIGLYCERIDES (fats carried in the BLOOD from the food we eat. Excess calories, alcohol, or sugar in the body are converted into TRIGLYCERIDES and stored in fat cells throughout the body. High triglycerides and cholesterol can cause atherosclerotic heart disease or narrowed coronary arteries in the heart can cause the symptoms of angina, when theheart muscle is not provided with enough oxygen to function. Decreased blood supply to the brain may be due to narrowed small arteries in the brain or because the larger carotidarteries in the neck may become blocked. This can result in a transient ischmic attack or stroke. Peripheral artery disease describes gradual narrowing of the arteries that supply the legs. During exercise , if the legs do not get enough blood supply, they can develop pain , called claudication . Other arteries in the body may also be affected by plaque buildup causing them to narrow, including the mesenteric arteries to the intestine and the renal arteries to the kidney. Change life style .do meditation,yoga, Go walk daily, do any one physically activity daily i.e.play any game., Avoid fast foods,oily foods,junk foods,alcohol,smoking,fatty foods, non-veg.,avoid stress,take plenty of water in day time. And 1 glass of water before bed at night. use flax oil, omega-3 fatty meal or cap., take .green veg., whole grain. GARLIC,. Cod liver oil. Take anti cholesterol medicines . Cap. Ecosprin gold-10 at night daily. caciral sachet once a week up to 6 weeks.

Mr. lybrate-user, Diabetes mellitus occurs either due to deficiency of insulin or resistance to its action or both. Hence, the most suitable medicine for diabetes is insulin itself. Hence there is no question of that causing any bad effect on the body. In T1 DM only insulin is given as the treatment for lifetime. Thanks.

I am very healthy and I am having thyroid too, by taking garcinia cambogia will I reduce and is it safe.

MCH, MS- Surgery, MBBS
Endocrinologist, Guwahati
There are very long term few randomized control studies regarding the safety and efficacy of garcinia cambogia and they have been conducted mostly on a small number of patients. Therefore it cannot be definitely said to be safe. Moreover it is used for weight reduction in obesity, it will not resolve your thyroid problem.

Mr. Lybrate-user, if diabetes is diagnosed then appropriate treatment has to be initiated. General weakness is one of the main symptoms if blood sugar is not well controlled. If treatment is adequate then fasting sugar should be around 100 mg and pp 150 to 160 mg/100 ml and hba1c%<7. If this achieved then most symptoms will disappear and he will feel more fit and energetic. Apart from taking prescribed medication, he should take a restricted diet, that provides exact calories based on his ideal body weight, extent of daily exercise and blood sugar levels. It is good to know that he is walking 30 minutes twice a day. That is a must. He should also get his eyes tested to rule out retinal involvement due to diabetes. Thanks for your question.
