Hi doctors: my daughter's age is 10 years and she is having type-1 diabetes from last two years. She is completely on external insulin four times a day. Is this disease is curable? if yes then what is the solution. Kindly guide me.

At the moment there is no cure. If you can afford put her on insulin pump. At least she will be relieved of pricks and diabetes will be controlled more effectively. In future there is hope on stem cell therapy, results uptill now are encouraging.

Dear lybrate user, one of the major nutritional substance required for human body is carbohydrate. We take carbohydrate in the form of rice, wheat, sugar etc. The complex molecules of carbohydrate are broken down into simple glucose molecules during digestion & released in the blood stream to be absorbed by the muscle cells. Muscle cells utilise the glucose molecules to release energy by breaking down those glucose molecules. Insulin hormone plays a vital role in the absorption of the glucose molecules by the muscle cells. In abnormal conditions, either due to less production of insulin or due to resistance to insulin, the process of absorption of glucose by the muscles comes to a stand still. The glucose molecules remains in the bloodstream which results in the increase in the blood sugar level. The failure of utilisation of the glucose molecules by the muscle cells results in production of less energy than normal condition. This is externally manifested as the fatigue & tiredness of the patient. This excess amount of blood sugar compels the kidney to function more than normal level in order to excrete the blood sugar molecules through urine. As a result the patient suffers from frequent urination. This abnormal condition is clinically known as diabetes mellitus. Once a patient is diagnosed with diabetes he has to take regular medicine to keep his blood sugar level within normal limits. Take homoeopathic mother tincture gymnema sylvestra q, 30 drops, thrice daily, after meals, in a cup of water. Also you need to walk at least 1 hour daily without any interval. Also you need to take a low carbohydrate rich diet. Avoid rice, sweet dishes, fruits, cold drinks, fast foods, alcoholic beverages, potato etc.

Are there any long-term effects associated with taking ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder) medications? If so, what are they and what medications are implicated? What exactly is a spine block injection? Will it work long-term for low back pain due to disc problems? What causes Hashimoto's thyroiditis, and what is the best method of treatment? Can iodine help this condition?

Use of stimulant decreases the symptoms to a much good effect and if we don't give stimulant medication there will be more of conduct disorder and progress in disease and for side effects we have to monitor the person and advice them accordingly and spine block injection is effective for six months.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. I have seen the details given. Fasting glucose 111 mg is in the pre-diabetes category. (Normal 70 to 100 mg). Cholesterol & Uric acid are high. To provide a diet plan I need to know your present dietary habits, extent of exercise and height. Following are a few suggestions: Avoid sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries, bakery items and foods made from maida. Increase the intake of green leafy vegetables, salads, fruits. Use whole grain flour for chapati and roti. Avoid alcohol and smoking. Exercise daily for over 1 hour and keep your BMI close to 23 kgs/M2. Thanks.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. The test is to measure level of insulin secretion and resistance to its action. Not really needed in routine treatment. Most important is your fasting, PP glucose levels & HbA1c% are more relevant for initiating the treatment. Plus diet control plus exercise which play equally importnat role in controlling blood glucose levels. Thanks.

About 25% of people with Type 1 diabetes and 80% of people with Type 2 diabetes have high blood pressure. Having diabetes raises your risk of heart disease, stroke, kidney disease and other health problems. Having high blood pressure also raises this risk. If you have diabetes and high blood pressure together, this raises your risk of health problems even more. If you have diabetes, your doctor will want to be sure that your blood pressure is very well controlled. This means that they will probably want your blood pressure to be below 130 over 80. People with diabetes and high blood pressure are sometimes given the blood pressure medicines known as ACE inhibitors or angiotensin receptor blockers, because they are thought to help protect the kidneys. However, other blood pressure medicines can also be used However, you can help to lower your risk of diabetes by following a healthy lifestyle - for example, by stopping smoking, by eating a healthy diet and keeping to a healthy weight, and by getting more active.
