I am a known diabetic for the past20 years the recent result of hba1 is more than 9 I have burning foot and can' t walk without amcr chappal joe to get permanent relief?

MBBS, MD - Internal Medicine
General Physician, Delhi
Your hba1c levels should ideally be less than 7 but since you have diabetes for 20 yrs even bringing it down to 8 would also be of help. You should be started on sulfonylureas like glimepiride. Diabetic neuropathy is difficult to treat if pregabalin is not effective then you may ask your physician to swith to either gabpentin or amytritiline. But do remember that it may take more than 4 to 6 weeks to start showing its effect.

lybrate-user, A strict diet can be beneficial only when blood glucose is fairly well in control with appropriate drugs. From the information it is clear that current treatment is not at all helpful to you. Ideally when in control fasting glucose should be closer to 100 mg, PP 150 to 160 mg & HbA1c%<6.8. If these levels are not achieved and maintained, then one is inviting serious long term complications related to multiple organs in the body. There needs to be a total relook at the present treatment. Thanks.

I, aged 66 years, diabetic and also postural hypertension feeling giddiness most of the time, although, on medicines prescribed by a recognised military hospital.Feeling fast loosing energy, tiredness all the time, panting, already angiography done a year ago with 40% blockage, little over weight.Cant I be treated permanently for diabetes?

MBBS, DGO (cal)
General Physician,
In the treatment of diabetes there no concept of temporary or permanent. You shall have to monitor and continue treatment. Angio report is not at all bad. Brisk walking and medical supervision can take care of it. Better loose those extra Kgs by walking briskly daily. Exercise shall increase your energy and fitness level. Take some fresh fruit regularly, which are not very sweet. Can take a apple a day. It contain high fibre. Only liquid fibre containing fruit so far I know. Papya is good. Nuts are good for you - contains lots of antioxidants. Increase your protein intake either from animal or vegetable source depending on your dietary habit. Sleep tight for at least 8 hours at night. For your Postural Hypotension, Only follow these. Your above practice shall bring down the problem though. 1) Don't start walking after rising from horizontal position. Sit for a minute if no black out start walking. 2) Don't stand in a place for long time or take care while rise from squatting position suddenly. 3) If any time you have a black-out bend forward or sit and bend down your head at or at lower level to heart. And wait till black-out is cleared. It shall take a few seconds. I shall appreciate your feedback.

Blood Pressure Medicines!

MBBS, Dip.Cardiology, Fellowship in Clinical Cardiology(FICC), Fellowship in Echocardiology
Cardiologist, Ghaziabad
Blood Pressure Medicines!

High blood pressure, also called hypertension, usually has no symptoms. But it can cause serious problems such as stroke, heart failureheart attack and kidney failure. If you cannot control your high blood pressure through lifestyle changes such as losing weight and reducing sodium in your diet, you may need medicines.

Blood pressure medicines work in different ways to lower blood pressure. Some remove extra fluid and salt from the body. Others slow down the heartbeat or relax and widen blood vessels. Often, two or more medicines work better than one.

FDA has approved many medications to treat high blood pressure, including

  • Diuretics, or “water pills,” which help the kidneys flush extra water and salt from your body and decrease blood volume
  • Angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors and Angiotensin II receptor blockers (ARBs), reduce blood pressure by relaxing blood vessels
  • Beta blockers, which also cause the heart to beat with less force
  • Drugs that directly relax the blood vessels. These include calcium channel blockers (CCBs) and other direct dilators (relaxers) of blood vessels
  • Alpha blockers, which reduce nerve impulses that tighten blood vessels
  • Nervous system inhibitors, which control nerve impulses from the brain to relax blood vessels

Many people with high blood pressure may need more than one medication to reach their goal blood pressure. Your health care provider can tell you if you should be on medication and, if so, which drug(s) may be best for you.

Hi! Good evening sir / madam suffering from thyroid problem this week I tested TSH value 7.70 so which tablet I have to use? How much mg tablet?

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Mr Mohiuddin, Thanks for the query. I think this question is with regard to your wife, if so you should have provided her height and weight. That would have given some idea as to whether she is overweight or obese. Giving your details has no meaning. TSH 7.7 mU/L is above normal, but falls in the subclinical stage. That normally is not treated unless there are specific symptoms related to hypothyroidism. Thanks.

high blood pressure combined with diabetes going on for a number of years are invariably dangerous to the kidney. These conditions lead to a chronic kidney damage then to chronic kidney failure. The treatment options are limited. Most important thing is to have strict sugar and bp control. Because if these diseases are ot fully controlled then damage is progressive, can cause complete failure. So make sure that his sugar levels and bp are as normal as possible. Reduce excess salt and protein intake. Drugs like nsaids (pain killers) should be avoided. If need be dialysis should be used to help kidney functioning.

2) what are the symptoms of thyroid. Pls help?
1) there can be many reasons for your back pain most common can be work over load or strain. Exact reason can be known only after knowing the nature and extent of your pain. The best treatment till that is rest, avoid straineous activities and do light exercises under supervision. 2) thyroid can be hyper or hypo and symptoms differ accordingly.
