Thanks.
Mr. lybrate-user, In diabetes honey is not advised as it only sucrose like cane sugar. But a small quantity just about a few ml may be taken. It has no great advantages. Thanks.

All medicines which you are taking have very little effect on libido .Your problem can be due to diabetic neuropathy or low testosterone level that is male menopause.

Mr anoop frequent urination can happen either due to uncontrolled diabetes or most often urinary tract infection. Apart from these there are many other reasons also. So it would be difficult to diagnose. I suggest get a routine urine examination done like microscopy, presence of pus cell and bacteria etc. Plus if your blood sugar levels are in proper control then frequent urination is not likely.

You are aware that hypothyroidism can only be treated by taking hormone thyroxine in prescribed dosage. Therefore, you will have to continue taking thyroxine tablets, prescribed by your doctor. Please understand there is no cure for this condition. Treatment is for life time. Plus you will have to avoid eating cauliflower, cabbage, broccoli, mustard and soya containing products. Also better to avoid coffee. You can consume other vegetables, onions, garlic, tomato and always use whole grain flour made breads.

Diabetes, often referred to by doctors as diabetes mellitus, describes a group of metabolic diseases in which the person has high blood glucose (blood sugar), either because insulin production is inadequate, or because the body's cells do not respond properly to insulin, or both. It is a difficult 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), & HbA1C (inform me) 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. There are different diet plans of varying calories for each person depending on his activity & life style. For diabetes, hypertension (high BP) and many long-term illness control there is the need for regular advice and follow up. Just one time consultation or advice is not enough to guide a diabetic in scientifically & medically correct manner. For giving you regular follow up you ask me with all details like your daily eating pattern and medicines you take. I assure you a proper guidance... if you keep in touch personally.

General Physician,
My father who is about 55 age suffering with diabetes. So please tell what to do to help him ?
Consult a senior and experienced doctor who treat such cases. A diabetologist / endocrinologist is the first preference. Follow his advices. Weight control, regular exercise, dietary (calorie) management, required medicine and regular monitoring for earliest sign of any complication and followup is essential part of management of diabetes. So please do not take it lightly. Do not run after hearsays and un authenticated advices.

Suffering from type 2 diabetes and mild blood pressure. Also rheumatic arteritis.Please tell.
Hi I am sure you must be on treatment for all these conditions. It very essential to achieve good glycemic control, otherwise it can lead to various problems (long term complications) associated with diabetes. Even rheumatoid arthritis like diabetes is a disease that can only be controlled. Apart from drugs treatment it is necessary to be physically active to keep healthy and fit. Exercise will also help in reducing blood sugar. Thanks for the question.

When a sugar patient should resort to insulin. How safe it is ?

MBBS & Post Graduate course in Diabetology
Endocrinologist,
If the oral drugs are not beneficial or if the sugar levels are extra ordinarily high or during surgeries of diabetic patient, it is suggested to go with insulin. It is safe as it is approved by regulatory authorities only thing to be kept in mind is to prevent over dose/under dose/hypoglycemia complications etc
