Addison's Disease - 4 Causes Behind It

Addison's Disease - 4 Causes Behind It

Addison’s disease is a disorder caused due to significant damage in the adrenal cortex (located alongside the adrenal gland’s perimeter that helps mediate stress reaction), which leads to a deficiency in the secretion of the hormones ‘aldosterone’ (that regulates the sodium and potassium level of the body), ‘androgen’ and ‘cortisol’ (which control the body’s reaction in situations of intense pressure) by the adrenal glands.

Causes
There are generally two stages of Addison’s disease. The causes vary according to the stages:

In the primary stage of the disorder, the body’s immune system attacks the adrenal cortex and significantly damages it.

Other significant causes are as follows:

  • This might occur as a result of the development of tumors and cancerous cells in the body
  • Resulting from certain infections
  • Long-term usage of glucocorticoids (inflammation reducing steroids) might result in the primary adrenal insufficiency
  • This might also be caused due to tuberculosis or severe bleeding in the adrenal glands.

Risk Factors

If you’re suffering from any one of the following complications, your chances of contracting Addison’s disease increase significantly:

  • Cancer or if you have undergone any surgery to remove parts of the adrenal gland
  • Tuberculosis or diabetes.
  • Frequent usage of coagulants

Treatments
The treatment of Addison’s disease varies according to the cause of the disorder.
The most common treatments for the disorder include:

  • A prescribed dosage of glucocorticoids might be recommended
  • Replacement of the hormones that the adrenal glands are unable to produce: Cortisone acetate or prednisone might be used in order to replace the ‘cortisol’ hormone.
  • Meditation or other relaxing techniques to ease excessive stress levels or manage any trauma that you have been through.

I am suffering from diabetes presently are under control my question is ,is medicine of diabetes can be stop in future.
Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. If you have T2 diabetes, then you will have to continue taking the medicine to keep blood glucose under control all through the life. There is no cure in diabetes. The day medicine is discontinued, bllod glucose levels will go up and there can be very serious long term complications affecting every single system in the body. As you are saying it is in control, ideally blood glucose should be - fasing <100 mg, PP 150 to 160 mg & HbA1c% <6.8. If this kind of a control is not achieved then there can be a multiple long term complications affecting eyes, nerves, kidney, sexual life, heart and lower limbs. Thanks.

Hi. Last 2 weeks back I randomly checked my blood sugar. It was 478. I than went for a proper blood and urine test and the reading were 473 and 278. Personally I am not a very sugar person. The doctor prescribed diamicron and Metsmall. Initially in the morning with another medication before bed. 9 days down the line the readings were still above 200 average. Now the dosage has been increased to Metsmall after every meal. The doctor said she cannot prescribe further check till the blood sugar stabilizes below 170-160. What is the take on this? Is there a chance of kidney issue or what?

You need to have patience and wait for the body to adjust to the medicines. Please do not simply depend on medications to reduce the sugar levels. You need to change your lifestyle. Adapt a healthy lifestyle. Please exercise everyday for a few minutes to begin with, and slowly increase the duration and intensity. You can also learn Yoga and pranayam which are safe and effective to bring harmony and natural balance in health. Eat only healhty food (avoid all junk food and outside beverages ). Include all types of seasonal fruits and vegetables everyday. Prefer unrefined and organic foods if possible. You can also add Homeopathy which helps the body to improve the metabolism and overall well-being in the long run. You can contact me for further details about Homeopathic consultation and treatment.

Diabetic Retinopathy

Diabetic retinopathy is an eye problem that can be caused by either type 1 or type 2 Diabetes Mellitus. Retinopathy occurs when diabetes damages the tiny blood vessels in the retina. The weakened blood vessels may leak fluid and blood.

Who are at risk for developing diabetic retinopathy?

Those with poorly controlled blood sugar levels are at a high risk of developing diabetic retinopathy. In addition, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, anemia, kidney disease and pregnancy can all place a patient at greater risk of suffering from diabetic eye disease.

How frequently should I get my eye examined?

If you have diabetes, you should get a yearly examination by your ophthalmologist. Once you develop diabetic retinopathy, your ophthalmologist may advise further investigations or treatment. A periodic follow up as advised by your ophthalmologist is mandatory. The frequency of these follow up visits is decided based on the severity of the disease.

What are the symptoms of diabetic retinopathy?

There may be no symptoms in the early stages, especially when the central portion of the retina is not involved. As the retinopathy progresses, you may have:

- Blurred vision.
- Floaters, which can look like black spots, little threads, or cobwebs.
- Bleeding in the eye causing sudden loss of vision.
- Temporary or permanent loss of vision.
- Pain is not a common feature of the disease.

Gestational Diabetes - 3 Associated Complications

Doctor of Medicine, DGO
Gynaecologist,
Gestational Diabetes - 3 Associated Complications

Gestational diabetes is a form of diabetes where the blood sugar levels of the body increase during pregnancy. When you are expecting, your body is more repellent to insulin so that a larger amount of glucose is manufactured for the baby’s nourishment. However, this excess blood glucose can build up within the body which causes gestational diabetes. This can lead to health problems for both the mother and the baby. At the end of the gestational period i.e. once the baby is delivered, blood sugar reduces to normal.

When are you at a risk for gestational diabetes?

  1. Gestational diabetes can also be hereditary. If a family member or a relative has diabetes, you are more likely to develop gestational diabetes.

  2. If you are overweight, you are more susceptible to developing gestational diabetes.

What causes gestational diabetes?

During pregnancy, the placenta connects your baby to the blood supply. This produces other hormones which reduce the levels of insulin. This increases the level of blood sugar in your blood. As your baby develops, your body manufactures more of such hormones which block your insulin levels leading to gestational diabetes. This usually occurs from the 20th week of your pregnancy.

Complications:

  1. Increase in Birth Weight – Extra glucose crosses through the placenta which instigates the baby’s pancreas to manufacture more insulin. This can make your baby very large. Sometimes, it becomes difficult for the baby to pass through the birth canal during childbirth as a result.

  2. Premature Birth and Respiratory Diseases – High blood sugar may increase the risk of an early labor. It may make the baby due before the 37th week of pregnancy. This also makes the baby more susceptible to respiratory disorders.

  3. High Blood Pressure – Gestational diabetes also raises your risks for high blood pressure. This can be fatal for you as well as your baby’s health.

Treatment:

  1. Follow a healthy eating schedule. Limit the amount of carbohydrates and ensure you have a healthy and balanced meal.

  2. Do light exercises regularly during pregnancy. This helps you to control your blood sugar level. Physical activities which require low levels of energy utilization such as swimming and walking will control your blood sugar level without exerting you too much.

  3. Taking insulin shots and medicine for diabetes will also control your blood sugar levels if you have a pre-existing condition. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can ask a free question.
