Symptoms of blood sugar and it's prevention. In case of Low BP. Pl suggest what can I do.
People with diabetes should undergo regular physical examination, which includes consultation with a doctor; fundus examination; electrocardiogram, stress test (treadmill test); foot examination for blood circulation, sensation and vibration perception, ulcer prone areas; along with necessary laboratory investigations. 30% of people with type 2 diabetes can control diabetes by proper diet, regular exercise and yoga alone. In other cases medicines and in some cases, insulin may be required. No restriction in diet is required in diabetes. Patients with diabetes should be advised to take a healthy and balanced diet. Sweet substance and fatty foods such as ice cream, sweets, cakes, biscuits, chocolate, etc. Should be avoided. Green vegetables and salads can be taken freely. Meals should be divided 4 to 6 times a day. Eating fruits are beneficial for diabetes patients. More sweet and ripe fruits like mango, sapodilla, custard apple, banana, etc. Should not be taken, if your diabetes is not under control. Diabetic patients should make regular exercise and physical activity or yoga as a routine part of their life. Generally, exercise should be done early in the morning. One should keep sweet handy during exercise for any emergency conditions like hypoglycemia. Patient education program and counseling is a must for every person with diabetes for total management of diabetes. It helps the patient to comply with drugs and lifestyle modification more effectively. The clinical management of diabetes now has significantly more options than ever before and every year new molecule and technologies are coming in the market for better diabetes management. But, everything will fail if the lifestyle is not adhered. With proper diagnosis and appropriate treatment, one can live long, healthy and cheerful life without developing diabetes complications.

Kindly have small frequent meals at 2-3 hrs intervals 2. Avoid feasting & fasting 3. Exercise daily but not on empty stomach 4. Be physically active all the time 5. Lose some weight.

Dear lybrate user. I understand. the control is pretty easy. You just have to keep the sugar away from your father so that in any way he is unable to get it when you are not present. In your presence you can always tell him that and control the behavior. But I suggest you to just leave him to enjoy. But not to enjoy too much. Take care.

When to See a Fertility Specialist?

MD - Obstetrics & Gynaecolog, MBBS
Gynaecologist, Hyderabad
When to See a Fertility Specialist?

If you’ve been facing problems in conceiving, it may be time to get yourself checked as it’s possible that you may be suffering from certain fertility issues or need professional guidance. A series of tests usually determine the root cause of the problem. These tests can include a physical examination, analysis of semen and blood tests, amongst others. There are certain factors that you and your partner must keep in mind when deciding upon the best time to opt for these tests and get started on an infertility treatment programme.

If you’re a female, it’s time to get yourself examined when:
1. You haven’t been able to conceive for over a year despite trying (when you are under 35)
2. You haven’t been able to conceive after trying for 6 months (above the age of 35)
3. You’ve had 1 or more miscarriages
4. You’ve been ovulating irregularly and your previous drug treatment has failed to correct the problem
5. You suffer from damaged or blocked fallopian tubes and endometriosis (a condition where tissues that cover your uterus also develop outside of the womb, causing pain and bleeding)
6. You have a history of genital infections

If you’re a male, you should consider an infertility treatment if you experience the following:
1. Facing difficulty in sperm ejaculation
2. Suffering from a low sperm count including poor sperm movement or structure (sperm’s shape and size)
3. Having an undescended testicle (a genital abnormality that occurs when the testicle fails to move into its normal position in the scrotum during the first 3 months of your life)

Apart from the above mentioned points, another important factor that you and your partner must decide upon is whether or not you intend to use assisted reproductive procedures, such as ICSI (IntraCytoplasmic Semen Insertion) or in vitro fertilization (IVF) to help in conceiving. While the former sees fertilisation occurring naturally after the eggs and sperm get placed inside one of the two fallopian tubes, the latter deals with the transference of the embryo created in the laboratory into the uterus.

Even though the thought of infertility can be disappointing for you and your partner, early and timely intervention can help in easing up the process of conception and remove obstacles that might hinder your chances of having a baby. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Gynaecologist.

Hi I am 52 years.(male) diabetic patient. Suffering last twenty years. As per blood report doctor advised me to take glimepiride 1 mg before breakfast and metformin 500 after meal two times. After 3 months b. S (f) abnormalyy high (304) and during that time I was suffering from gastric (i think side affect) now medicine totally stop. Doctor advise me to take admission in any hospital. Feeling very weak. What can be done now.

Fellowship in Diabetes Management, MBBS
General Physician,
After 20 yrs of diabetes, your body's own insulin production is very less, and thats why medicines won't help much. Starting once daily basal insulin will improve your condition a lot with weakness going away. Don't be afraid to start insulin, because the injection is painless, and can guarantee you that your condition will improve a lot. No need of admission, consult me online with your reports if necessary.

Incredible Pineapple Benefits

Incredible Pineapple Benefits

Health benefits of pineapple

1. An anti-inflammatory agent

Pineapple hails from the bromeliaceae family, after which one of its most important health promoting compounds, the enzyme bromelain, was named. The complex mixture of its substances can act as a pain reliever, blood thinner and anti-coagulant, as well as an anti-inflammatory agent. Long story in short, it is nature's aspirin.

2. Cure for constipation

This miraculous fruit aids in the natural digestion process. The high quantity of fiber helps in the formation of stool and its quick movement though the tract, while the enzyme bromelain is known to help in the breakdown of protein. Pineapple juice, in particular, serves as a great laxative that cures constipation.

3. Helps in burning fat

even though it contains sugar (extremely beneficial for growing kids), the amount is not so overwhelming. Plus, the amount of fat is negligible as well, making it a go-to-snack for the ones trying to shed kilos. The soluble fiber content contributes to a delayed digestive process, which helps to control hunger pangs and indirectly accounts for a boost in metabolism and calorie burn" says bangalore-based nutritionist. Dr. Anju sood.

4.Good for the eyes

Pineapple is a rich source of vitamin c, anti-oxidants and minerals like manganese and potassium. It helps fight against cell damage and reduces the risk of macular degeneration, an eye disease that affects older people. It is also a good source of beta carotene, essential for eye health.

5. Regulates blood pressure and hypertension

Medical studies have established that a cup of pineapple contains (low amount) 1 mg of sodium and (high amount) 195 mg of potassium, which is vital for bringing down the blood pressure to a state of normalcy. Potassium is an essential mineral which helps in regulating blood pressure in the body.

6. Counters infertility

If you are a woman struggling to conceive, pineapple can help. The presence of a considerable amount of folic acid makes this possible.

7. Vitamin powerhouse

Pineapples pack a tremendous nutritional punch, containing vitamins a, c, e, and k, minerals like potassium and calcium, electrolytes and phyto-nutrients like carotene. They are a rich source of anti-oxidants, which fight against free radicals in the body, preventing cell damage. These anti-oxidants can protect you from diseases like atherosclerosis, heart diseases, arthritis and various cancers. Vitamin a and vitamin c are a boon for the skin as well" we usually recommend two servings of any fruit a day, and pineapple can certainly be one of them on a daily basis. 100 gm of the fruit is sufficient, provided it is consumed during the first half of the day" adds Dr. Sood

Is thyroid and diabetics interrelated? TSH IS >150 WHEREAS T3 AND t4 ARE 0.27 and 23.8 what is the treatment suggested?

Is thyroid and diabetics interrelated? TSH IS >150 WHEREAS T3 AND t4 ARE 0.27 and 23.8 what is the treatment suggested?
Thanks for the query. Diabetes and hypothyroidism are not inter related. They are separate diseases. TSH >150 mU/L is too high. This means there is severe hypothyroidism. Immediate treatment with levothyroxine is needed. Dosage has to be decided based on patients weight, height, TSH level and T4 levels. Plus patient has to avoid soy beans, soy containing products, increase the intake of green leafy vegetables and fruits, exercise daily so as to maintain near normal weight. Thanks.

Can diabetes thyroid bp that I am suffering from be cured to get a normal pregnancy? Will all these affect my pregnancy?
lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. I have seen the details and understand the concern. If blood glucose is well controlled (between 90 to 120 mg through out the day) preferably with Insulin, TSH <2 mU/L and BP well controlled, then it is possible to get pregnant and have a healthy baby. But throughout the gestational period you have to manage all the three conditions very well. There is no CURE for any one of these. Thanks.

What causes Hashimoto's thyroiditis, and what is the best method of treatment? Can iodine help this condition?

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Mr. Lybrate-user, hashimoto's thyroiditis (ht), is an autoimmune disease, where our own immune cells produce antibodies against thyroid secreting cells destroying the the hormone secreting cells leading to hypothyroidism. There are antibodies seen against thyroid peroxidase enzyme. (anti tpo abs). Plus there is infiltration of lymphocytes in thyroid cells, making the gland firm and globulated. One of the causes for ht is supposed to be excess iodine intake due to iodinated salt. Treatment is to supplement thyroxine hormone regularly. This is the main cause of thyroid deficiency in usa. Iodine has no role in the treatment of ht.

Good that you are trying to control your thyroid level. U can still try to lower it by achieving healthy and balanced lifestyle. Try to include some physical activity in your day. Try to schedule your food, sleep and exercise. This will.
