My mother has been suffering from diabetes for the past 15 years. She has to take insulin and medicines everyday as prescribed by doctor. Because of which her blood sugar level goes below normal on certain occasions. But today, it dropped to 37 mg/dl, which has never happened before. She was feeling very weak for sometime and took some glucose after that. Please Doctor, let me know what should be done to avoid such situations in future.

If she is not taking food at the proper time after taking insulin also one reason, apart from that if she is taking more dose she can have hypoglycaemia. In such a case you check blood sugars before breakfast and before lunch and before dinner for one or two days and you can find out which time sugar is high and which time it is very normal or low, accordingly you can increase or decrease the dosage of insulin. So keep in mind and also always keep some easily digestible food, if you get low sugar symptoms you can take some amount of food, you can prevent hypo. All the best.

Taking proteins depend upon your exercise level. Just by taking whey, one does not gain muscles. Also if you are a beginner, you should focus on basics. After one has achieved a basic level of fitness, they should start supplements to reach next level.

Effective Tips To Reduce Obesity!

MAMC, MRCPCH, MD - Paediatrics, MBBS
Pediatrician, Noida
Effective Tips To Reduce Obesity!

Obesity is the condition wherein a person has an excessive body weight as a result of genetic or lifestyle-related factors. This condition if not taken seriously can be life-threatening as obese people are at risk of developing chronic conditions like diabetes, cholesterol, blood pressure, and may also lead to a heart attack. Hence it is crucial to undergo weight reduction.

Calculate the weight you need to lose
Before you begin to practice effective steps for losing weight consider the amount of weight you need to shed. You should first measure your current weight and then calculate your body mass index (BMI) to find the amount of deviation from the recommended range. Then consider the difference between your current and ideal weight as your target weight.

Tips For Losing Weight

1. Eat Right

  • Consult a nutritional expert- It all starts with the right diet. An Individual’s eating habits contribute significantly to his weight. If you are obese or overweight, then you should consult a health expert and have him prepare the appropriate diet based on your weight and body type.
  • Balanced diet- Make sure you have lean meats, fruits, and green leafy vegetables as part of your diet. Also, cut down on the amount of food you consume and your intake of sugar, salt, and fats gradually. Also, water is the best medicine since it flushes all the toxins out of your body. Make it a point to drink around 2 litres of water on a daily basis. It will help clean your system and also keep you feeling full and hydrated.
  • Regular meal time- Another effective tip is to eat regularly. If you skip meals, then your body starts storing excess fat to act as a reserve. If you eat regular meals in small portions, you not only slow down the fat storing process but also reduce the quantity of food you consume.
  • Healthy options- Moreover, switch immediately to the modern-day marvel that is green tea. This seems to be very effective as of late and is helping obese people greatly since it is rich in antioxidants. If you do not prefer green tea, then aloe vera juice is an even better alternative.

2. Exercise
An obese person needs to exercise regularly. If you find it difficult to do exercise, take baby steps. Start with easy sitting and lying exercises. Go out into the open such as a garden and perform these exercises early in the morning for just 10 minutes. As you build your stamina, increase the intensity gradually.

3. Manage stress
Shed some of that stress in your life as stress and weight are directly correlated. Lose out on stress, and you will also lose those extra pounds.

4. Don’t neglect sleep
Six to eight hours of sleep is essential for a healthy being. Insufficient sleep results in increased levels of cortisol. Cortisol is associated with weight gain.Hence, it becomes crucial to rest enough.

Make sure you seek advice from your doctor and implement the necessary lifestyle changes to accomplish weight reduction effectively.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Diabetes and Depression: Coping With The Two Conditions

MBBS
Diabetologist, Jabalpur
Diabetes and Depression: Coping With The Two Conditions

According to most experts, depression and diabetes have been intricately connected in a vicious cycle. While the prolonged and sustaining nature of diabetes directly makes one vulnerable to the bouts of depression, doctors tend to locate traces of depression in the family history of an individual in order to diagnose the roots of diabetes. It won't be too far-fetched to state that both causes as well as affects the other.

If you have diabetes, either type 1 or type 2, you have an increased risk of developing depression. And if you're depressed, you may have a greater chance of developing type 2 diabetes. The good news is that diabetes and depression can be treated together. And effectively managing one can have a positive effect on the other.

How Diabetes and Depression Correlated?                    
There are myriad ways in which diabetes affects depression and vice versa.

Firstly, tackling such a long drawn disease and its various pitfalls might cause a lot of anxiety to one and lead to depression. Whereas on the other hand, depression reduces the zeal to live and thus results in poor lifestyle choices which in turn causes weight gain, unhealthy food habits, physical inactivity. As we are well aware, all these have the potential to wreak havoc for any patient of diabetes. 

Similarly, diabetes ushers in various other health complications, adversely impacting one's productivity. This may cause depression in a lot of people. 

On the flipside, depression impedes one's ability and enthusiasm to work or communicate, this in turn intervenes with one's monitoring of diabetes. Since these two extremely malevolent diseases have such close connections, medical science recommends ways to grapple with both. The rigors of managing diabetes can be stressful and lead to symptoms of depression.

Diabetes can cause complications and health problems that may worsen symptoms of depression.

Depression affects your ability to perform tasks, communicate and think clearly. This can interfere with your ability to successfully manage diabetes.

Treatment: Depression is just like any other illness, it can be treated. Treatment can lift the depression and improve diabetes control.

Looking after your diabetes will help decrease the risk of getting depression. If you already have depression, good diabetes management will help lessen the negative impacts it can have. Depression is no different to any of the other complication of diabetes. It is a genuine illness for which you need to seek help and support from health professionals.

The treatment for depression and diabetes involves a coordinated approach that monitors both diabetes control and the symptoms of depression. It is about finding the treatment that works best for each person. For example, people with diabetes and mild depression may find that regular physical activity improves depressed moods and also helps control blood glucose levels.

Helping Yourself.

If you suspect you might have depression, take control of your health by:

  • Going to a doctor or other health professional
  • Getting involved in social activities
  • Engaging in regular moderate physical activity
  • Learning about depression and diabetes
  • Very particular about medicines prescribed for Diabetes
  • Eating healthily and including a wide variety of nutritious foods
  • Achieving and maintaining healthy weight
  • Limiting your alcohol intake
  • Getting help, support and encouragement from family and friends
  • Asking your doctor to check your blood pressure, cholesterol and blood glucose levels

Urinary Tract Infection

MS - General Surgery, MCh Urology
Urologist, Hyderabad
Urinary Tract Infection

OVERVIEW

Urinary Tract Infections are common infections, affect men and women of all ages, and vary dramatically in their presentation and sequelae.

Urinary Tract Infections are a common cause of morbidity and can lead to significant mortality.

WHAT IS AN UTI?

A UTI is an infection involving any part of the Urinary Tract such as the Urethra, Urinary Bladder and the Kidneys.

UTI is an inflammatory response of the urothelium (lining of the urinary tract) to bacterial invasion.

INCIDENCE AND EPIDEMIOLOGY

Women are most at risk for a UTI. Nearly half of all women (50%) will experience a UTI during their lifetime.

WHY?

Women have a short urethra which makes it easier for the bacteria to enter the bladder and cause infections. Also the urethra is in close proximity to the anal canal, which is the source of these organisms.

What causes the UTI`s?

The most common causative organisms of UTI`s are bacteria from the bowel such as E.coli, proteus, pseudomonas etc.

Once the bacteria enter the urethra, they travel upwards causing infection in the bladder and sometimes other parts of the urinary tract.

Sexual intercourse is commonly associated with UTI`s in women. During intercourse, the bacteria in the vaginal area are sometimes transferred into the urethra by the motion of the penis.

Using spermicides or a diaphragm also can cause more frequent UTI`S , due to increased binding of the organisms to the lining of the urethra.

Menopause also increases the risk of getting a UTI. During menopause, the level of estrogen decreases which causes changes in the periurethral tissues that can lead to a UTI.

In men, urethritis is usually the result of bacteria acquired during sexual contact.

SYMPTOMS AND SIGNS OF A UTI

  1. A strong persistent urge to urinate.
  2. A burning sensation during or after urination.
  3. Passing frequent, small amounts of urine.
  4. Blood in the urine (Hematuria) / Cloudy Urine / Foul smelling urine.
  5. Pain in the lower abdomen and the pelvis.
  6. Penile discharge in men.
  7. Pain in the flank region/ back, fever , nausea and vomiting, fatigue  (Infection of the kidneys)

HOW ARE UTI`S DIAGNOSED?

The Urologist will take a proper history and examine the patient and order some basic investigations like Urine Analysis and Urine Culture and sensitivity. UTI`S in males require more detailed investigations like the Ultrasound of the Abdomen to elucidate the cause of UTI.

TREATMENT

Based on the severity of the symptoms, the urologist may prescribe antibiotics empirically based on the common sensitivity patterns. The antibiotic may be changed based on the Urine C/S report , which usually takes around 48 hours time. You may also be prescribed a medicine that will relax the bladder while the antibiotic starts to work.

Patients must make sure they take the complete course of treatment as directed and to return back if the symptoms are not relieved.

Patients are also advised to drink plenty of oral fluids, which help in flushing out the bacteria from the urinary tract. Patients are also asked to avoid coffee, alcohol, and soft drinks containing caffeine until the infection is cleared because these can irritate the bladder and cause worsening of symptoms.

Kidney Infections (Pyelonephritis) usually require hospitalization and more intensive management.

PREVENTION OF UTI`S

  1. Drink plenty of oral fluids to flush out the bacteria
  2. Do NOT hold the urine for long periods of time. Urinate when you feel
  3. Wipe from front to back after a bowel movement.
  4. Urinate before and after sexual contact emptying the bladder completely each time.
  5. Avoid using spermicides/ diaphragms , in case of recurrent UTI`s
  6. Avoid use of feminine “hygeiene” products like douches and sprays, which could upset the delicate bacterial balance of the genital region.
