Hi sir, I am 26 years old male. I am a diabetic type 1 patient. Either I could marry? either diabetic causes impotencecy?

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Most men have occasionally experienced some difficulty with their penis becoming hard or staying firm, but this is not erectile dysfunction, which is a concern only if satisfactory sexual performance has been impossible on a persistent number of occasions for some time. Broadly, two forms of erectile dysfunction can affect men's sex lives - the main cause is either medical or psychosocial. Here, psychosocial means psychological effects - including the effects of social relationships - on sexual performance. Of course, medical conditions can also affect psychological wellbeing, and while the main cause of sexual impotence will be medical or psychological, there can be overlap between the two. It is not as easy task to control blood sugar in the desired normal range. Whatever we eat is metabolised to sugar in the body to provide energy for our daily activities. For the absolute control, one has to monitor his / her blood sugar at regular intervals (self-monitoring of blood glucose? smbg). Though difficult, this can be done by a glucometer and keep a record. Get an idea of fasting sugar (fbs) and 2 hours after food (ppbs) and check before dinner and after every major food. The basic idea is to reduce the food intake to 1/3 of what you take now. The dictum of sugar control is diet, exercise, diet + medicine and at later stage medicine+ insulin will be needed.

To avoid any sexual problem or erection problem, you should keep your diabetes under control. If your blood sugar are on higher side for persistent period than the blood supply to the penis is affected which will affect your erection.

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.

Normal fasting sugar and 2 hours after meal should be less than 100 & 140mg respectively. If person is diabetic for good control keep fasting and 2hours between 90-110 & 100-130 respectively. The limits are individualised based on age, other associated diseases and how carefully a patient can manage his diabetes without having low sugar episodes.

Sir please I want to know about diabetes. Is weight decrease related to diabetes?
Diabetes mellitus, or simply diabetes, is a chronic disease that occurs when the pancreas is no longer able to make insulin, or when the body cannot make good use of the insulin it produces. Insulin is a hormone made by the pancreas, that acts like a key to let glucose from the food we eat pass from the blood stream into the cells in the body to produce energy. All carbohydrate foods are broken down into glucose in the blood. Insulin helps glucose get into the cells. Not being able to produce insulin or use it effectively leads to raised glucose levels in the blood (known as hyperglycaemia). Over the long-term high glucose levels are associated with damage to the body and failure of various organs and tissues. There are three main types of diabetes: Type 1 diabetes used to be called juvenile-onset diabetes. It is usually caused by an auto-immune reaction where the body’s defence system attacks the cells that produce insulin. The reason this occurs is not fully understood. People with type 1 diabetes produce very little or no insulin. The disease may affect people of any age, but usually develops in children or young adults. People with this form of diabetes need injections of insulin every day in order to control the levels of glucose in their blood. If people with type 1 diabetes do not have access to insulin, they will die. Type 2 diabetes used to be called non-insulin dependent diabetes or adult-onset diabetes, and accounts for at least 90% of all cases of diabetes. It is characterised by insulin resistance and relative insulin deficiency, either or both of which may be present at the time diabetes is diagnosed. The diagnosis of type 2 diabetes can occur at any age. Type 2 diabetes may remain undetected for many years and the diagnosis is often made when a complication appears or a routine blood or urine glucose test is done. It is often, but not always, associated with overweight or obesity, which itself can cause insulin resistance and lead to high blood glucose levels. People with type 2 diabetes can often initially manage their condition through exercise and diet. However, over time most people will require oral drugs and or insulin. Both type 1 and type 2 diabetes are serious. There is no such thing as mild diabetes. Gestational diabetes (GDM) is a form of diabetes consisting of high blood glucose levels during pregnancy. It develops in one in 25 pregnancies worldwide and is associated with complications to both mother and baby. GDM usually disappears after pregnancy but women with GDM and their children are at an increased risk of developing type 2 diabetes later in life. Approximately half of women with a history of GDM go on to develop type 2 diabetes within five to ten years after delivery.

Lybrate-user, I think you are talking about" hot fomentation" which means applying heat to the affected part by using a rubber bag filled with hot water or using a cloth dipped in hot water. It is definitely useful in relieving stiffness and pain. But it will depend on the cause of low back problem. By and large it is useful.

Diabetes is a metabolic derangement in the body under the influence of hormones if biochemical parameters are kept under control on day to day basis then one can live healthy normal life as person with diabetes but not as patient with diabetes.

My mother's age is 50 years. She had diabetes from last 3 years, she is using glycomet 500 mg daily twice morning one and evening one. Her latest blood sugar test results are: fasting Blood sugar : 90 mg post lunch Blood sugar: 150 mg. She had rice in the morning and after 4 hours we have taken post lunch sample, without taking any tablet. Without tablet her post lunch sugar level is normal, means we can stop to take tablets? Is her sugar levels come to normal?

Do it after 2-3 days without medicine and see again. If it comes normal do it again after a week and if consistently both the samples, fasting and post meal remain normal, then stop medicine but continue dietary restrictions and exercises. Afterwards do monthly follow up checks and act as per reports.

Vitiligo is a genetic disorder trigger by indigestion and stressful conditions. There was always confusion in patients mind regarding choosing right treatment approach for vitiligo. Allopathy can give quick results but is not very safe for long term uses if steroids are used. Homeopathic is safe but very slow and in most of cases it can not stop the spread of disease i. E old patches shows some recovery but new white patches continue to come even when we are using homeopathy. If one think about using ayurveda there is no good vaidya who is expertise in vitiligo. At our clinic we have integrated external allopathic applications with internal ayurvedic medication to give fast and long lasting results. Ayurvedic herbal medicines are used to purify blood and stop the spread of disease and external application are capable of quickly start regimentation. With a expertise in treating thousands of patients in past years. Kayakalp global is leading skin clinic in india to treat vitiligo. For detail replies regarding 1. Causes of vitiligo 2. Is it genetic or can it spread to next generation 3. Causes of spread of disease after it remains stable for some years 4. Should we use homeopathy, allopathy or ayurveda. You can contact clinic for details via lybtate. You can send pictures of vitiligo effected parts. We will review your case and will guide you best possible treatment and time frame required.

I have felt always tired even no longer I work. Loss of appetite, is it not the symptoms of diabetes?
Mr Santosh Kumar, Feeling tired without any known reason can be a symptom of diabetes. If you have a family history of T2 DM, it is better to get a blood sugar check up done. That will help in clearing the doubt. Apart from feeling tired other symptoms include excess urination, excess thirst, excess hunger and unexplained weight loss. So please a detailed blood check done.

My wife's clinical report shows T3 as 72 ng/dl, T4 as 8.5 ug/dl and TSH as 7.21 uIU/ml. Do she requires medication?

BHMS
Homeopath, Chennai
My wife's clinical report shows T3 as 72 ng/dl, T4 as 8.5 ug/dl and TSH as 7.21 uIU/ml. Do she requires medication?
Yes she does. Thyroid hormones (t3/t4) are considered master hormones. If the thyroid gland is functioning low then t3 t4 levels drop, and then the brain (pituitary gland) signals the thyroid gland to up its production by secreting increased levels of tsh which is thyroid secreting hormone. And that is why she needs treatment - either thyroid supplements which will make up for the thyroid hormones deficiencies or medicines as in homeopathy that can stimulate the thyroid gland to regain its function. Happy to help!

Lybrate-user, some times suddenly different symptoms can be seen, particularly with gastrointestinal tract. Indigestion, nauseating feeling can be seen more often in a few patients of diabetes a condition called gastroparesis may develop which delays stomach emptying and hence appetite may be affected. It is very difficult to conclude what exactly might be the reason. My suggestion is to take a lighter food for next few days or eat small quantity of food per meal and take more frequent meal. Also continue walking for about 45 minutes to 1 hour daily. That will aid digestion. Maintain bp and blood glucose levels with in prescribed limit. Avoid fatty and highly processed foods as well as sweets. Consume more of green leafy vegetables. Maintain your glucose levels with in prescribed limit. Thanks.

if there is family history there are chances of developing diabetes in future. but it is only age onset provided u maintain good diet and exercise u can delay its onset.
