THE SYMPTOMS OF TYPE 2 DIABETES

General Physician (AM)
Alternative Medicine Specialist, Chandigarh
THE SYMPTOMS OF TYPE 2 DIABETES
The symptoms of diabetes include feeling very thirsty, passing more urine than usual and feeling tired all the time.
The symptoms occur because some or all of the glucose stays in your blood and isn’t used as fuel for energy.
Your body will try to get rid of the excess glucose in your urine.
The main symptoms include:
urinating more often than usual, particularly at night

feeling very thirsty

feeling very tired

unexplained weight loss

itching around the penis or vagina, or frequent episodes of thrush

cuts or wounds that heal slowly

blurred vision (caused by the lens of the eye becoming dry)

The signs and symptoms of type 2 diabetes aren't always as obvious, and it's often diagnosed during a routine check-up.
This is because the symptoms are often mild and develop gradually over a number of years.
This means that you may have type 2 diabetes for many years without realising it.
Early diagnosis and treatment for type 2 diabetes is very important because it may reduce your risk of developing complications later on.
Visit your GP as soon as possible if you think you may have diabetes.

I had detected hyper thyroid in Aug 2015, t3-300 and tsh was 0.01. I was suggested to take neomercozile 20 mg for 30 days and then increase dose to 30 mg for next 30 days and 40 mg for 1 year. After 30 days I felt some changes so I did checkup and found that t3, t4 within range but tsh -32, someone suggested to stop pills immediately and I did the same. Few months back I again checked, tsh came down to 5.5, but last month its 8.5. What to do?

I think you were having thyroiditis when you were checked initially. During the thyroid damage & inflammation, a lot of thyroid hormone is released at once into the body. So, the reports suggest hyperthyroidism and so, you were treated with the correct medicine. But, I would have followed up with thyroid tests every 2 months because once, thyroiditis resolves and thyroid gland is damaged as a result, patient goes into hypothyroidism which is what your reports are suggesting after you stopped the medications. For TSH level of 8.5, if you do not have any symptoms, you need not take medications. It is called SUBCLINICAL HYPOTHYROIDISM. Repeat the tests every 3 months and if TSH level is still rising, then consult a physician or a medical endocrinologist for appropriate treatment and advise.

I m suffering from thyroid from two years. I m putting on my weight, what should I do.

I m suffering from thyroid from two years. I m putting on my weight, what should I do.
It is always challenging to lose weight with thyroid disorder. Most people who are fat are made to feel that it is because you lack will power, you are lethargic and a weak person. But that is definitely not true. It is your your hormones which have made you fat and keeping you fat. Unless we make correct diagnosis and and create a diet and lifestyle plan to correct that hormonal abnormalities you will not be able to lose weight for long term. Most diet fails because they are low calorie and low fat. Instead of correcting metabolism, they make you feel low energy or makes you feel excessively hungry. To achieve weightloss - think long term. Weight loss achieved over short term, always comes back. There is a general approach and a specific approach as per individual patients metabolic profile. Try this general approach (see below) for 4 weeks. If this works then continue. If this is not enough then revert for further assessment and customised approach. With customised lifestyle modification approaches, people over 100-150 kg are also losing weight for long term. 1. Do not eat anything sugary or sweet. Zero sweetness in diet. 2. Eat plenty of salad in lunch and dinner along with other foods. 3. Do not drink any liquid calorie like cola or fruit juices. 4. Go for brisk walks or jogging for 45 minutes every day. Best wishes.

Your sugar level is slightly higher, so try to keep it under check. Exact location you need to mention. Back pain can be due to various reasons, with age there are some degenerative changes, so better to get x-ray done for knowing the status of your spine, in the meanwhile you can do some hot fomentation then apply some pain relief gel like volini etc. Also you seem to be 10 kg overweight so try to lose that, and learn some back exercises by a physiotherapist to strengthen you core muscles.

Hi
This is   male 26 years old one year back sugar attacked me recently my sugar level is 168.
If the sugar level you have mentioned is without any medicine and the sample was drawn within one and half hour after meals, it is a little above the normal. If you are taking some anti diabetic drug then it is really high despite medication. Have small frequent meals. Stop direct sugar and high carbohydrate ingredients in your diet. Do regular exercises.

Hello, for controlling bp try to avoid processed foods and salt intake. Can also use low sodium salt. Also for sugar or diabetes problem, atleast walking is important. Meals should be taken at regular intervals or gaps of 2-3 hours. Water intake should also be checked. Do not stress. Try to avoid any kind of alcoholic beverages. Still if required, can have 30 ml red wine once a while.

Yes you need to tale multivitamin .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.

How to gain weight in type one diabetics. My height is 5 feet 2 inch. What type of food should i choose that should not affect my blood sugar ?

Vaidya Visharad
Ayurveda, Narnaul
Dear,People who are underweight and do not have fat deposits on their body may not be getting enough calories to fuel their body. This could have a direct impact on all of their organs and may eventually lead to a variety of health problems.There are ways to get into the shape we desire and to gain weight fast. This would require understanding the reason for low weight and maintaining a diet for weight gain. In weight loss, the simple formula is to burn more calories than you consume, but to gain weight you have to also find out if there is something in your body that is preventing you from getting to the weight that you desire.

Mr. Lybrate-user, looking at your weight and height the bmi is 32.19 kgs /m2, showing grade 1 obesity (normal <23 kgs/m2). For better control of blood glucose it is necessary to maintain normal weight. Your ideal body weight (ibw) should be62 kgs. Therefore to control blood glucose level apart from taking insulin and other drugs it essential to reduce weight. That will also help in controlling lipid levels. Any exercise is as good as other. It is better to start with brisk walking for at least 1 hour a day. Later you can upgrade to jogging. You should also do strength building exercise on 2 days a week in addition to aerobic activity. Plus certain yogasanas and pranayam will also be beneficial. Blood sugar control will need insulin, oral drugs plus exercise, weight reduction and diet control. All these factors together will help. Thanks.

Your technique may need modification. Pinch the skin, introduce the needle perpendicularly, not at an angle. After you have injected the insulin, count to 10 to allow some time. Then remove the needle and do nothing to the injection site. You can always use pen device to ensure consisted delivery of insulin with negligible discomfort.
