How to control high sugar level of my niece ankansha, 13 yrs. Old old. Her super lebless is 300 to 400. Kindly suggest me.

Sorry to hear this. Hope ankansha is comfortable. From her age (13), I assume she is atype 1 diabetic. If so, insulin is the only safe (& effective) option for her. Often, type 1 diabetics will have to take multiple shots of insulin daily to get good control & prevent complications. Consult a diabetologist who is familiar with managing type 1 diabetes.

MBBS, DGO (cal)
General Physician,
Answer to your questions are not so easy that can be given in few words. Your Diabetologist and Cardiologist are best persons who can give you effective advice. Possibly your diet is to be adjusted by a dietitian under supervision of your Diabetologist. You might need more calorie but avoiding increase of CHO and Fat component of your diet. Your protein quantity may have to be increased, of course if your Kidney function is alright. For Exercise, Brisk walking (at your highest comfortable speed) daily, 6 days a week is required. Duration is minimum 30 minutes if you are not overweight. If you feel tired you take a break to begin with. But complete 30 minutes walking. Yes use walking shoe while you walk.

If hyper thyroidism detected in first 3 months of pregnancy the first choice is ptu but subsequent 6 months pregnancy nmz (neomercazole) can be safely taken under close supervision of doctor as frequent 4-6 weekly thyroid testing needed so auto avoid under or overdosing.

I am 37 year old. Had a history of gestational diabetes 7 years back when I was pregnant. No diabetes please after that. Just recently found out that fast level of sugar was 126 please and please was under normal range. Diet control and walk has brought my fasting level to 114. I want to ask if I plan for second child. I might put on weight. Will I get diabetes again. Can I prevent it ?

M B B S, M. D (Internal Medicine)
General Physician, Nellore
Yes you might get diabetes during 2nd pregnancy again. Continue the diet and exercise and have frequent sugar check ups during your pregnancy. It is not a contraindication for pregnancy. But note that the diagnosis of diabetes during pregnancy is slightly different. Even after delivery, you should continue checking every year even if sugars are normal. You are likely to develop diabetes on a permanent basis whether you have a 2nd pregnancy or not. The appearance of diabetes has nothing to do with gaining weight during pregnancy. It is a hormonal effect.

Which is the best medicine for Diabetes. And tell me the name of strong pain killer tablet.
These medications help lower blood glucose by assisting the body with breaking down starchy foods and table sugar. For the best results, they’re taken before meals. Options include: Acarbose (Precose) Miglitol (Glyset) Biguanides & Morphine is the strongest.

Fasting 140-160 is high and you might need to increase your medication. Get your hba1c report done. It is last 3 months sugar average and more reliable test. Hair loss could be due to several other reasons and not related to diabetes.

In addition take the prescribe medicine regularly.

Mr Amit, To reduce uric acid level avoid organ meat, certain fishes like anchovies, herring, sardines, mussles, scallops, touts etc. and alcohol. Avoid vegetables like cauliflower, spinach, asparagus, mushroom and peas. You can consume been and lentils. Use milk and milk products. Avoid saturated fats and exercise so that weight is maintained.

For diabetes follow a diet low in carbohydrate, low in fat and high in fibre. Walking for 30 mins a day for at least 5 days in a week is recommended. Your prescription need a change as your sugar level are very high.

Is Diabetes curable ?

MD - Consultant Physician
General Physician,
Diabetes can be brought under control by adequate exercise, diet and by maintaining one's body weight. If a person has borderline diabetes or if the diabetes has been precipitated by some stress or infection, then these measures can bring the blood sugar under control without medications. But in most patients, it is not curable, at least at present. Maybe later.

Some days only there is evening coffee or tea w/o sugar and some biscuits 2nos or poha dry}. Dinner is almost same (if rice for lunch then wheat for dinner}. There is a lot of physical activity done around house plus climbing from GF to FF to roof top. Presently medication is; (a) PRAX A 75 (0-1-0), (b) Istavel 100mg (1-0-0) (c) Cardivas CR 10 (1-0-0),(d) A to Z (1-0-0) {Multi vitamin tablets} (e) Rozavel F (0-0-1), (f) Diamicron Mr. 30mg (0-0-1) Walking is no problem except need to do a slower start than what was done earlier feeling is pleasant pain & tiredness very brief which is naturally cooled off sitting shade on terrace reading morning newspapers. I can easily walk same distance in evening. Sugar level is fluctuating sometimes as low as 88/120 to as high as 150/210? How do I ensure it remains steady and thro what control? Diet? Please advice.

Hello, Do not stop with the medicines. Replace banana shake with oats porridge and check. I do think banana shake can five you a problem, unless you add extra sugar to it.

Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. There are actually many causes of pain around the ankle region, so it could be due to due to some injury, inflammation, infection etc. First priority is to keep your sugar levels within normal values by regular intake of medications. I will advise you on certain blood investigations which you should do empty stomach and send me the reports: cbc, esr, crp, serum uric acid, serum electrolytes, serum vitamin d & b12 levels done. Send me your reports so that I can see and advise you accordingly. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance.
