Diabetes is most commonly attributed to high blood glucose , either because of inadequate insulin production , or because the body's cells do not respond properly to insulin. Prevention is better than cure - there are few things which can be controlled before it becomes a problem.

What Are The Causes of Growth Hormone Deficiency?

Hello everyone ! I'm doctor arun kumar singh practicing endocrinology at metro heart institute Faridabad and also in Delhi. So, today I'm going to talk about growth hormone deficiency. First, what is growth hormone? So as its name suggests it is a hormone which secreted by master endocrine gland "Pituitary gland" and it is very essential for normal development and growth of human being and also other animals. Apart from its effects on normal growth it also has an important role in our metabolisms like regulating the metabolism of lipids, proteins and carbohydrates and it's essential for normal development of our muscles and bones and required for normal functioning of almost all organs in our body.

So what is growth hormone deficiency?

This is clinical situation when pituitary gland is not making enough of growth hormones which is required for normal development process and this clinical entity usually present in childhood because that is the time when it is most needed and without growth hormone even if all systems are functioning normally and child is getting good nutrients but he face to gain his normal height as he should gain as per his genetic potential.
So growth hormone is very important during our phase of growth that is childhood early infancy to the PSF adolescence.
So what are symptoms of growth hormone deficiency? So the most common symptom the common symptom is the child is not growing and he is shorter than almost all other children who are of same age group and sometimes these children are even shorter than their younger siblings. So that is very serious and it clearly indicates there is something wrong with the child and these children should be investigated through a growth hormone deficiency. Generally, if there is no other medical problem, these children appear healthy, they look younger for their age, and they don't have any other symptoms. So that's why the condition is neglected and they are brought to the hospital at late age i-e 15 years, 16 years and 20 years and they are diagnosed late so they don't get the benefit of effective therapy.
If its treatment at the early age then the result is very good and they can achieve there genetically determined height. But if there is delaying diagnosis and treatment is started very late then they don't get the maximum benefit of growth hormone therapy.

Why growth hormone deficiencies occur?
So there are few causes i-e it is synthesized and secreted by endocrine gland pituitary, so any development affecting pituitary gland or any head injury, trauma, radiation or surgery of the brain can cause growth hormone deficiency and there is very effective and easily available treatment and these children can grow tall and they can achieve normal height with growth hormone replacement.So that is all about growth hormone deficiency. So if you have any queries or any more question you can always contact me on Lybrate.com or in my clinic.

Thank you!

INSULIN - Myths and Facts!

INSULIN - Myths and Facts!

Insulin is the most effective treatment option to control diabetes but many misconceptions about insulin stop patient to use it timely, which puts them at risk of harmful effects of high blood sugar levels. Here are few misconceptions and facts about insulin...

Myth 1. Insulin is used in only late stage of diabetes.

Fact - Insulin can be used at any stage of diabetes. whenever blood sugars are very high i.e. > 300 mg/dl, insulin should be used to control diabetes rapidly. Insulin is advised to people with newly diagnosed diabetes as first treatment option if blood sugars are more than 300 mg/dl.

Myth 2. Once patient starts using insulin, he has to use it for lifetime.

Fact - Many times use of insulin is for short duration of time. use of insulin is not habit forming. insulin is used temporarily for many patients when they have infections, during surgery, during critical illness etc.

Myth 3. Insulin is harmful to kidneys and other organs.

Fact - Insulin in not harmful to any organ. in fact timely use of insulin can help people to control their diabetes and save them from ill effects of diabetes like heart attack, paralysis, kidney failure, diabetic retinopathy, foot problems etc.

Myth 4. Use of insulin is very complex procedure and it can NOT be managed at home.

Fact - With help of newer devices like insulin pens and ultra fine needles, self injection of insulin has become very easy with little training by medical personnel. Even children with type 1 diabetes are able to inject insulin themselves. If you have any more questions, you are welcome to contact me. USE INSULIN, DEFEAT DIABETES.

5 Signs of Growth Hormone Deficiency

5 Signs of Growth Hormone Deficiency

Growth hormone is one of the many hormones secreted by master endocrine gland i.e. pituitary gland. As its name suggests, growth hormone has a central role in the overall growth of human being. It plays a much more important role during childhood than adulthood. Growth hormone also controls our metabolism. Deficiency of growth hormone results in poor growth (short height) during childhood and also disorders of metabolism.

Growth hormone deficiency can be caused by abnormal development of pituitary gland, head injury, intra cranial tumors etc. or it can be idiopathic (reason not known). It is very important to identify the problem as early as possible because results are very good when treatment is started early. And also, because growth hormone deficiency can be caused by serious underlying disorders, for example - intracranial tumors. Following are few hints to possible diagnosis of growth hormone deficiency.

  1. If your child shows any of these signs, take him/her to an endocrinologist (hormone specialist) for assessment of his/her growth
  2. If your child is frequently mistaken for being much younger for his/her age.
  3. If your child is being teased or bullied by his/her friends due to short height.
  4. If your child is fitting into same clothes or shoes for more than 2 years.
  5. If your child is much shorter than children of same age and sex. If your child is growing less than 4 cm in a year.

Role Of Insulin Pump In Diabetes Management!

MD - General Medicine, DM - Endocrinology, MBBS

Role Of Insulin Pump In Diabetes Management!

Diabetes is very common metabolic disorders. It is estimated that at least 6o to 70 milloin Indians are affected by diabetes. One third to half of the urban Indian adults have diabetes or pre-diabetes. Diabetes is the most common reason for heart attack, kidney failure, blindness etc. in our country. With right management and tight control of diabetes, many of these complications can be avoided. All patients with type 1 diabetes and large number of patients with type 2 diabetes require multiple daily injections of insulin to control their diabetes. 

Insulin pumps can be used for these patients to minimize fluctuations in blood glucose levels, to reduce the risk of hypoglycemia and to avoid multiple daily injections. Insulin pump is a small device which is worn and carried by patient everywhere. It is connected to subcutaneous tissue with tubing and very thin catheter. It has a reservoir which is filled with insulin to be infused continuously for 24 x 7. Insulin pumps can be programmed to inject a different dose of insulin every hour depending on patient’s need. 

With an insulin pump, the patient does not need to inject insulin multiple times but he has just to just give a command to pump and it delivers ordered a dose of insulin immediately in a painless way.

Benefits of insulin pump in diabetes therapy:

  1. No need to inject insulin multiple times daily. 
  2. Insulin dose can be adjusted for each hour of day as per patient needs. 
  3. Fluctuations in blood glucose levels can be minimized. 
  4. It provides flexibility in lifestyle. Bolus insulin can be delivered after snacks also for better control of diabetes. 
  5. Risk of hypoglycemia (low blood sugar) is minimized. 
  6. Newer models of insulin pumps can predict impending hypoglycemia and terminate insulin infusion automatically for short period of time.
  7. Newer pumps can do continuous blood glucose monitoring as well and alarm patient when blood glucose levels are below or above set limits. 

Drawbacks of insulin pump 

  1. It’s costly. Basic pumps cost approximately 2.5 Lakh INR. 
  2. Though very small and portable, device has to be carried by patient everywhere. 
  3. Patient should be able to understand how to operate pump. 

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

With healthy lifestyle mild diabetes can be controlled without medicines but there are no medicines to cure diabetes. Commonly used medicines to treat diabetes either increase insulin hormone or they make insulin more efficient. Your mother's blood sugar levels are very high, she should be started on medicines with positive changes in lifestyle to prevent damage to various organs by high blood sugar levels.

Diabetes is metabolic disorder of glucose not lactose or fructose. So we don't measure their levels in Diabetes. Consuming fruits does not decrease glucose levels but eating different fruits daily in moderate quantities is advisable.

As you know it's poorly controlled and uncontrolled diabetes will harm her kidneys on the top of iga nephropathy. I recommend to start insulin for her with oral medicines. It's very highly unlikely to control her diabetes without insulin. Don't waste precious time.
