Diabetic macular oedema ( DME ) is severe form of Diabetic Retinopathy affecting vision.
DME can occur in any stage of diabetes.
Thus, the importance of regular eye check-up for diabetic patients is must. At least once in a year get your eyes fully tested.
Most of the people are unaware of this complication. And many times when I ask my patient about eye test I get answers like , "I got my eye glasses power checked and changed or I don't have cataract. "
Eye check-up for diabetic person is checking the back part of the eye which is called as Retina.
Once DME is diagnosed, immediate treatment is necessary to ensure better outcomes and prevent vision loss.

Diabetic macular oedema (DME) can be treated using laser therapy and/or intravitreal injections with vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) inhibitor injections.


Anti-VEGFs are able to reduce oedema, macula thickening and vascular permeability
They are the treatment of choice for DME because they can improve the patient’s vision ,produce good results and have a low risk of complications.

3 anti-VEGFs are available in market. bevacizumab and ranibizumab, aflibercept .

In some patients, there may be a need for a combination therapy of both laser treatment and intravitreal anti-VEGF injections. DME treatment needs to be personalised to cater to each patient’s conditions. This applies to the frequency of intravitreal anti-VEGF injections, with the injections given as per the patient’s condition instead of following a strict routine frequency protocol.

According to me Thyroid can be one of many reasons to get irregular period... As far as thyroid medication it needs to be continued for life long in most cases.. For scanty periods first you should do is get investigated specifically for USG abdomen. As an alternative treatment homeopathy works best and has permanent solution without any side effects... For that many details required... Consult with proper details...

Diabetes - How it Affects Your Skin?

MBBS, DNB (General Medicine)
Endocrinologist, Delhi
Diabetes - How it Affects Your Skin?

Diabetes is a serious disease, but if properly managed is not life threatening. Diabetes can be explained as the body’s inability to regulate insulin production. This leads to fluctuations in blood sugar levels. This disease affects every part of the body including the skin. For some people, a rash is among the first few symptoms of diabetes. Most diabetic patients suffer from a skin condition at some point or the other. Here are a few common skin ailments that affect diabetic patients.

  1. Bacterial infections: A weakened immune system makes diabetics more vulnerable to bacterial infections than normal. These bacterial infections can be typically seen in the form of styles on the eyelid, boils, carbuncles and nail infections. They usually make the skin around the infected area red, inflamed and painful. Most skin bacterial skin ailments can be treated with antibiotic creams and pills.
  2. Fungal infections: One of the most common fungal infections that diabetic patients suffer from is known as Candida albicans. This ailment is characterised by a red, itchy rash that is surrounded by small blisters. It is caused by yeast-like fungus and usually found in moist areas like the armpits or between the toes. Other fungal infections that affect diabetic patients include ringworm, jock itch, athlete’s foot and vaginal yeast infections.
  3. Itchy skin: Diabetics often suffer from itchiness that could be triggered by yeast infections, dry skin and poor circulation. People with poor circulation will find their calves and feet to be the itchiest part of the body, While poor circulation and yeast infections may need medical attention, dry skin can be easily treated by keeping the skin internally and externally hydrated along with the use of a mild moisturising soap.
  4. Vitiligo: This is a skin condition where the melanin producing cells in the skin are destroyed. This leads to a patchy appearance that can be typically seen on the hands, face and chest. Vitiligo is considered to be an autoimmune disease like diabetes and has no known cause or cure. Sunscreen is a must for diabetic patients suffering from vitiligo as the unpigmented skin has no protection from UV radiation.
  5. Diabetic blisters: Patients with severe diabetes may also suffer from diabetic blisters. These blisters usually occur on the extremities of the body and resemble blisters caused by burns. They are usually pain-free and heal on their own.
  6. Disseminated granuloma annular: This condition is characterised by a ring or arc shaped areas on the skin. They can usually be seen on the fingers and ears but may also occur in the chest and abdomen. This rash may be reddish or skin coloured. Medical treatment is not generally required for this condition. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an endocrinologist.

I am advised one dietician to take vinegar and honey with water daily morning to get reduced my over weight (93 kgs) and to feel good. Whether honey can be taken being diabetic.

Hi your hba1c% looks fairly good, it means blood sugar is in good control. However, honey in diabetes is not advisable, particularly if the quantity is more. A few ml is fine. You have not mentioned what is the quantity advised. Your bmi 29.96 kgs/m2 is closer to be grade 1 obesity. Hence, weight reduction is a must. I have no idea about honey and vinegar helping in weight reduction, but proper dietary restriction, taking exact amount of calories based on ideal body weight (67 kgs), plus regular exercise of at least 1 hour a day, cutting down high carb diet will be more beneficial. Once your weight goes down, diabetes control will be much better. Thanks for the question.

Agnesji, I am not aware if hypothyroidism increases blood pressure. Your blood pressure particularly systolic seems to be varying quite a bit, it is not good. Appropriate medication should settle it. Ideally on treatment bp should 130 / 80 mm hg, altering present drugs or adding some new compound should be able to help in reducing the systolic pressure. You also control hypothyroidism effectively (maintaining tsh between 3 to 4 milli units/ml). That will help in over all well being.
