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.

Please follow the instructions and treatment strictly as it is a lifelong condition. However with correct use of insulin the disease can be well managed with minimal organ complications.

Your reports are normal & within the range. Sometimes slight variations do occur between fasting/ post prandial readings dur to technical reasons or blood taken a bit later than 2 hours. Good to know that you have brought levels of choleasterol to normal but this is not be all. Do get total lipid profile & take less sugar and sweets as sugar in fruits give us enough to sustain.

Homoeopathic medicine can cure erectile dysfunction within short duration of time. No side effects in homoeopathic medicines at all. Only two things you should avoid while taking homoeopathic medicines for better results 1. Coffee 2. Soft drinks. Remaining all food you can take. 100% results. There are medicines like argentum nit, kali phos, agnus, nux vom can completely cure erectile dysfunction permanently. For further details you can consult me. Thank you.

DIABETES AND LIFESTYLE CHANGES Diabetic diet is not a matter of deprivation or avoidance but of healthy eating habits. Genetic susceptibility appears to play a powerful role in the occurrence of type 2 DM, but the current epidemic likely reflects marked changes in lifestyle. Decreased physical activity and increased energy consumption have together promoted obesity, which is a strong risk factor for diabetes. Nutrition is an integral component of prevention, delayed onset and management of diabetes. Goals of diabetes management: Provide a nutritionally sound meal Attain and maintain blood glucose levels in the normal range as far as possible To attain and maintain desirable weight To maintain healthy levels of blood fat i. E. Cholestrol and triglycerides To prevent long term complications of diabetes Healthy eating; 60% of the calories should come from carbohydrates 12%-20% from protein 20% -35% from fats Food should be distributed equally throughout the day Choose foods from all food groups in all major meals Choose foods high in fiber as it slows digestion and gives a feeling of satiety Total fat and saturated fat should be limited, some amount of fat is essential for important body functions and it also helps slow gastric emptying. Whole grains should be chosen over refined cereals like sooji, sago, white bread, maida Whole dals have a very low GI index and should be included daily EXERCISE: · Exercise helps diabetics lower blood glucose · It helps the body use insulin better Exercising helps one control weight, develop lean muscle and reduce body fat Maintain adequate level of physical activity so as to achieve fitness and a negative energy balance 30 to 45 min of brisk walk daily is recommended.

What is the symptoms of diabetes and hepatitis C.what medicine will be good for this diseases. Please help me.
Mr. Lybrate-user, diabetes mellitus most often does not produce any symptoms, that is one of the reasons why many people do not realise that they have the disease. When fully developed it may cause excess urination, excess hunger, excess thirst, unexplained weight loss and tiredness. Depending upon the type of diabetes and severity of blood sugar level different drugs are used to treat the patients. In t1 only insulin injections are used. No other drug is useful. In t2 there are many oral anti-diabetes drugs plus insulin injections are used. Hepatitis c is a viral disease, occurs when the virus enters due to either blood transfusion (infected blood), using used needles, unprotected sex with infected person etc. Usual symptoms are fatigue, gastrointestinal upsets, joint pains, loss of appetite, jaundice, dark or yellow urine and bruising or bleeding easily. Treatment is using a number of antiviral drugs. Thanks.

Shaking Hands Can be a Sign of Thyroid Disease

DM - Neurology
Neurologist,
Shaking Hands Can be a Sign of Thyroid Disease

Are you aware that shaking hands can be an early sign of thyroid disease?

Yes, that's right! Even in patients who have a low thyroid function, shaking of hands can appear when the dose of thyroxine becomes too high - and it can be a reliable indicator to titrate the dose (which means, if an increase in dose of thyroxine makes the hands start shaking, then the dose should be reduced). In hyperthyroidism (or excessive thryoxine hormone synthesis states in the body), one of the cardinal symptoms is shaking of the hands.

So how do you know for sure it is due to thyroid hormone excess? And how do you differentiate this from other kinds of tremor?

Mrabhay kumar blood suagr level of fasting 126 mg and pp above 200 mg is normally considered as frank diabetes. But it is just at the limit. It would be better if you get hba1c% and if the values exceed 6.5%, then it is frank diabetes. Still if you follow a very strict life style modification like 1) exercise for more than 1 h per day (at least brisk walking for more than 1 h), 2) avoid sugar and sweets and fruits like mango, banana, chikkoos and grapes, 3) consume more whole grain flour breads, complex carbohydrates, 4) consume more green salad and green leafy vegetables, 5) try and maintain your weight near normal (ideal body weight = height in cms - 100 x 0.9 = kgs), 6) avoid deep fried fats, 6) refrain from smoking and alcohol. Your caloric intake should be properly calculated based on weight and level of physical activity. If all these guidelines are meticulously followed then there is a possibility for you to check the condition and remain euglycemic.

Mr. Lybrate-user, if blood sugar levels are not in control, causing hyperglycemia, then there is considerable loss of glucose through urine. This leads to weight loss. Once blood sugar is well controlled, weight loss can be prevented. Being a diabetic person you have to take a restricted diet, that provide exact calories based on the daily need. Some additional proteins can be considered which along with regular exercise to build muscles and weight. Joining a gym should be beneficial. But blood sugar levels should be fasting about 100 mg and pp 150 to 160 mg and hba1c%<7. With regards.

Hello Mr. lybrate-user Gaining 35kgs is a way too high in past 4 years.. Weight gain is mainly associated with wrong eating habits and a sedentary lifestyle if there are no clinical conditions.. Follow sum simple guidelines >> ■ drink 2 glasses lukewarm water with lemon on an empty stomach. ■have good quality healthy breakfast.. ■ mid morning snack can be any single fruit. ■ again for the lunch you can much on raw salads n vegetable sabzi of your choice (cooked in less oil) with roti. ■ evening snack can be your herbal tea with roasted chana. ■ dinner should be as light as possible (means low calorie) so you can have soups or some kind of chaana chaat or so. See to it that you always have home cooked meals. Limit the portion size of your meals. Avoid fried, junk, sweets. Exercise at least 50mins a day (as per your age a brisk walk is recommended) Also get your TSH levels checked.
