How Sugar problem controlled and what kinds of precautions are taken in sugar problem?
Hi Type 1 diabetes can be controlled with insulin alone. Type 2 Diabetes can be controlled with exercise, proper diet and oral medications. Precautions to prevent complications in diabetes are: 1. Regular exercise and small frequent meals. 2 Regular follow up with diabetologist. 3. HbA1C every 3 months to make sure diabetes is under control, once it's within the target repeat every 6 months 4. Annual eye check up. 5. Annual blood and urine tests to look at the kidney function, liver function, heart, cholesterol and many others. 6. Drink plenty of water. 7. Sleep well. 8.

You don't need to worry about fertility at this stage. Just stay relaxed and enjoy your wedded life. Try naturally for at least one year and in all probability you will conceive. In case you don't conceive after one year of regular unprotected intercourse, then you both should seek an expert advice. Till then, don't worry and stay positive. All the best.

What is the mail symptom of thyroid desires. Since I have had thyroid in childhood.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology

What is the mail symptom of thyroid desires. Since I have had thyroid in childhood.
Mr. Lybrate-user, it would have been better if you had mentioned what was the condition that you had as a child. Because thyroid is an endocrine gland present in all of us. It produces hormone thyroxine, which is essential for development and functioning of brain, for a large number of metabolic activities in the body. Deficiency of that hormone causes hypothyroidism and excess causes hyperthyroidism. So it is unclear by saying" I have had thyroid" hypothyroidism causes swelling of face & lower limbs, slow heart rate, tiredness, early fatigue, dry hair, dry skin and hair fall, difficulty in speech, inability to concentrate, weight gain, in females irregularity of menstrual cycle, excess flow, plus anxiet and depression. If untreated can cause serious consequences. Hyperthyroidism causes loss of weight, increased heart rate, palpitation, protruding eyes, anxiety, agitation, sexual disturbances etc.

Is there any permanent treatment of blood sugar ?

Endocrinologist,
Is there any permanent treatment of blood sugar ?
there is no permanent cure for diabetes. This disease can only be controlled by regular treatment either with oral anti diabetics or with insulin injections. Diet and exercise are supportive therapies.

My grand father is a diabetes patient and he wants to make a operation of his eyes how should he prevent from diabetes.
He can go ahead with his eye surgery. The eye surgeon will take adequate measures to prevent complications. From your side, make sure he is taking all diabetes medications on time, controls his diet well, takes up exercise (mostly walking) as advised, so that his sugars and all health parameters are maintained normally.

You will have to take antidiabetic medications lifelong. It needs continous monitoring and most importantly you need to follow diabetic diet and exercise daily for at least 30 minutes. Its not mandatory that you will require insulin.

Hypothyroidism causes weight gain, slow heart rate, swelling of face and lower limbs, intolerance to cold, dry hair, dry skin, hair fall, fatigue, tired feeling, irregular menstrual periods, excess flow, anxiety and depression and if uncontrolled then may cause mixedema. Since it is a deficiency disorder, hormone supplement is needed for lifetime.

Foods That Can Be Used To Reduce Blood Sugar Level

Foods That Can Be Used To Reduce Blood Sugar Level

High blood sugar occurs when the insulin in the body fails to metabolize the sugar from the food, which raises the amount of glucose in your blood. It is a metabolic disorder which can be managed effectively with the help of lifestyle modifications such as exercise and food. This article is going to focus on the foods that you can eat to lower your blood sugar levels.

Here are 9 foods that you can use to reduce blood sugar levels:

Cinnamon: cinnamon is a herb which is very effective in getting your blood sugar down to manageable levels. You can simply sprinkle cinnamon on your food before eating it.

Fenugreek (methi): fenugreek is a common spice which is used in almost all indian cuisines. It has a number of health benefits, one of which is reducing blood sugar levels. Soaking fenugreek in water and then drinking it the next day is a very effective remedy in combating sugar problems.

Garlic: not just for sending away the vampires, it is also very effective in blood sugar control. Extracts of garlic have been shown to increase insulin in the body which is required to metabolize the sugar in the body.

Heart healthy fats: heart healthy fat based foods such as nuts and seeds are good for increasing the good cholesterol levels (hdl) in the body. Avocadoes contain nutrients which lower the risks of various diseases such as diabetes. In a nutshell, these fats make the cells of the body less resistant to insulin.

Blueberries: blueberries contain anthocyanin (water soluble pigments) which is very good for your health. They also contain fiber in large amounts which make you feel fuller faster. This fruit has also been shown to improve insulin sensitivity in the body.

Vinegar: vinegar is an age old remedy to control blood sugar levels; it contains acetic acid which causes a reduction in certain harmful enzymes in the stomach. Vinegar is also known to prevent blood sugar spikes when consumed with food.

Complex carbohydrates: complex carbohydrates raise your blood sugar but not like its cousin, simple carbohydrates. Simple carbohydrates cause an immediate spike in your blood sugar levels where as complex carbs provide a steady stream of energy. So drop that packet of refined flour and get that whole wheat variant.

Cherries: cherries, especially tart cherries and dark sweet cherries, are full of anthrocyanins. Insulin resistance prevents insulin from working properly to control blood sugar in normal ranges. Eating a diet high in anthrocyanins can mean improved use of insulin and lower blood sugars.

Nuts: people who eat nuts regularly have lower rates of heart disease than people who don't eat them.

Ask your local doctor. He may advise you to reduce the dosages. But I feel you BP has not come down enough to warrant a reduction in dosages. If you can reduce your weight to about 59 kgs that may be the time you can think of reducing medication. But do so only after your Doctor agrees to it.

My height is 5feet 5.5 inches and weight 77 Kgs. I have no extra flesh except at belly. My BP level is also well under control. Earlier my HbA1c was 6.9. I donot know why the belly fat is going up with my best care. Some people tell me it is because of Metformin which I am taking. Please advise what care i should take to reduce the belly fat. Further what care I can take to reduce my HbA1c reading. My creatine level of kidney is also at 1.3 the last limit.

I am pretty sure the people who tell you that your belly fat is because of metformin are either not doctors or self declared degree less doctors. Metformin is the basic medicine which helps to decrease the belly fat and BMI of a diabetic its a wonderful drug and you are taking minimal amount only which is moderate dose. Gliclazide may increase your belly fat as it is insulin secreting drugs and insulin is a anabolic hormone and puts weight on you. i suggest change your medication. You can easily increase metformin to a maximum of 2 grams in divided dose. For further consultation kindly come in private question section.

For diabetes follow a diet low in carbohydrate, low in fat and high in fibre. Avoid bakery products. Avoid too much rice and potato. Avoid fried stuff. Avoid chocolate, cakes, ice cream, soft drinks and fruit juices. Eat lots of vegetables. Walk for at least 30 minutes a day for 5 days in a week. Medicine and insulin will work better if you follow diet and exercise. Medicine will depend upon your blood sugar reports.
