I am 45 male suffering from high Blood pressure. Presently taking Telma 80H. Also have diabetes problems. Suggest me the best medicine to control my above diseases.

Mr Manoj, Hypertension and diabetes usually are seen together in many persons. Apart from taking appropriate medication, it essential to adapt a modified lifestyle, which means having a balanced and restricted diet, exercising regularly for more than 1 hour a day, avoiding sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods, alcohol and smoking. In case of hypertension salt intake also has to be low(2.3 g/day). From the data it is not clear what is level of blood pressure, which drugs are being taken for treating diabetes and current fasting and PP sugar leves and HbA1c%. Plus also inform you are exercising regularly, as your BMI is 26.19 kgs, which is high. Plus inform about dietary pattern. It will be good if you come in a private conversation with these details, where I will be able to give specific suggestions.

I am 37 year old and diabetic. Sugar is normal. Also taking uric acid tablets. Daily I have too much body pain. Thyroid and calcium test also normal. Please suggest me what is the problem.

Dear lybrate-user your body pain may be due to some causes which has to be found and treatment has to be done. Despite taking treatment for uric acid if you are having body pain the cause has to be found out after going through a holistic study of your case as per homoeopathic method. In homoeopathy we will not be seeing your diabetes and Gout as seperate as both of this along with your body pain is caused by loss of immunomodulation. So in Homoeopathy the cause of this is studied and along with this your genetic make up which makes you prone to disease is studied and a apt remedy which can keep your immunity balanced is given which will cure the condition.

Dear Doctors, I have come across product "GlyxGo" claiming to reverse Type II diabetics. Are their claims proven or described mechanism scientifically correct. Can it be taken along with regular diabetic medicines without any adverse effects? Thanks.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
In order to regulate blood sugar levels, the body secretes a hormone from the pancreas called insulin. This hormone is used to regulate blood sugar levels, working by forcing the liver to convert blood sugar into glycogen, which is then stored in roughly two thirds of the cells of the body.There are a number of medications that are able to modulate blood sugar levels. These solutions are commonly used by diabetic individuals that need to regulate their blood sugar These products you ask are claimed to be herbals and cannot cure diabetes and is scam

I am diabetic and high blood pressure patient From last one year I am unable to sexual relation to my partner Please help.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Mr. Lybrate-user, diabetes mellitus if not controlled properly affects small and large blood vessels. Erectile dysfunction (ed), is a complication due to microvascular affection. It is one of the most common condition reported in dm. If it has developed, it may be very difficult to reverse it. A strict blood sugar control is a must, plus some other medications may have to be used. So first step is try achieve fasting sugar nearer 100 mg and pp around 150 to 160 mg and hba1c <7%.

Have been taking Rosuvastatin for 7 years. And a diabetic. But all in control. But losing libido and erections. Can Statins be the cause. What is the remedy?

MD - Diabetology, Membership of the Royal College of Surgeons (MRCS), MBBS
Endocrinologist, Kochi
Statins are usually NOT known to cause low libido or lack of erections. Age could be a factor in your case. Also, habits such as alcohol intake need to be looked at. However, in most cases, the reasons are psychogenic.

You mean to say that earlier you had no idea about high blood sugar at all? if sugar is 452mg please start treatment right away, preferably with insulin in consultation with your doctor for first few months then can be shifted to oral medication.

I have been suffering sugar since 5 years then suggest me best medicine for sugar.

Certificate in Basic Course on Diabetes Management, CCEBDM Certificate in Diabetes, MBBS
General Physician, Pune
No details of present medications, test reports etc. You must reduce your weight to about 64 Kg. It is not the best medicine but most appropriate and effective medicine is selected by your treating doctor taking into consideration your sugar levels, average sugar levels, HbA1c, weight and other parameters. Regular follow up, monitoring and review is a must.

I got my blood sugar level 206 in fasting. I or my family members do not have diabetes. I have cold from 3 days. Did cold increase my sugar level or I have diabetes.

Hello Sir, It is very likely that you do have Diabetes. But, just based on one blood test report, a doctor should not diagnose Diabetes. Physical stress or mental stress can cause raised blood glucose levels. I would advise you to get your Fasting blood glcuose, your 2 hour post breakfast blood glucose and HbA1C levels checked after you recover from your cold. If these results are elevated, then you are having diabetes. I hope this answer has been helpful to you Kind regards.

Thyroid - Does It Impact Sex Life?

Thyroid - Does It Impact Sex Life?

The thyroid gland is a tiny gland that produces the hormones which affect the body's metabolic process. When these hormones are produced in less or more quantities, it may result in an imbalance of the thyroid gland, leading to a range of thyroid issues including hypothyroidism, hyperthyroidism and others. Overproduction or underproduction of the thyroid hormones can also cause a variety of other symptoms and conditions. While this affects the state of one's general well being, health and weight, it also has an effect on the patient's libido.

Let us learn more about the link between thyroid and sex:

  • Thyroid in Men: Men who are suffering from hyperthyroidism or hypothyroidism as well as related conditions like goitre or Garves Disease, have complained of sex related problems. These problems are known to affect at least 50% to 60% of the patients, as per various medical reports. The sex related issues include premature ejaculation, low sex drive, delayed ejaculation, erectile dysfunction, and others.
  • Thyroid in Women: It has been found that almost 10% of women over the age of 50 suffer from some form or the other of thyroid hormone imbalance. Apart from fatigue, depression and muscle ache as well as weight alteration, depending on the type of thyroid problem, thyroid patients who are women have also experienced problems when it comes to libido. Sexual dysfunction and arousal problems are high on the list of these issues.
  • Hormonal Treatment: One of the most common ways of treating this sex related thyroid problems for thyroid patients is through the use of hormonal therapy. Besides getting the testosterone, estrogen and other androgen levels checked, the patient must also get a full hormonal evaluation along with a check-up of the adrenal function. This can help in pointing any anomalies and the hormones that will require replacement with the help of appropriate medication.
  • Optimal Drug Treatment: A T4 only drug or Levothyroxine can lead to a resolution of sexual problems that one encounters as a part of thyroid problems. There are many doctors who may switch to a T3 drug once the libido is restored and brought back to normal.
  • Supplements: Men may require testosterone supplements, while women may need estrogen or progesterone supplements to tackle the sexual problems in such cases. These can be rendered as a patch or through an injection.
  • Sex Therapy: In many cases, sex therapy considered as a popular and effective form of addressing the problems and helping the patients get around the same. This is especially helpful if depression is one of the symptoms of the thyroid disorder.

A thorough physical check-up also helps in treating such problems for thyroid patients. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Sexologist.
