Hello, Thanks for the query. Blood glucose fasting 123 mg, means you are in the pre-diabetic stage. It means if you take adequate care, adapt a changed lifestyle, maintain normal body weight and BMI, exercise regularly, avoid sweets, junk foods, pastries and bakery itmes, colas and deep fried foods, then you can prevent or postpone progressing to wards developing diabetes. Your BMI is 26.51 kgs/M2 (normal <23 kgs). Your ideal body weight should be 56 kgs. It means diet control and regular exercise are needs of the day. Thanks.

Mr. lybrate-user, If hypothyroidism is present then taking thyroxine (thyronorm) in adequate dosage is the only option. There is no other permanent treatment. You will have to continue taking that tablet for lifetime. If you have any specific doubts you are welcome to come in a private conversation. Thanks.

Please do not stop your medicines on your own. It may be harmful. Please discuss this with your endocrinoogist. You can get your anti TPO antibody titer done. If it is positive, chances of stopping medicines are reduced.

I am a 61 year old male and being treated for diabetes foe the last 20 years with allopathic medicines. My blood glucose level is around 200 and now creatinine is 1.55. Is it ok to continue with allopathic medicines or to switch to alternate systems of medicine to prevent damage to kidneys? Please advise.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Mr. lybrate-user, Kidneys are affected not by the anti-diabetes drugs but by diabetes itself. Diabetes damages small and large blood vessels. Small blood vessel damage results in retinal damage, kidney (filtering membrane damage) affection and erectile dysfunction. Persistent high blood glucose is the main reason for kidney damage and not the drugs. If you shift to alternate medicines which have absolutely no treatment for diabetes then there can be further high glucose levels leading to more severe complications. Choice is yours. Thanks.

Diabetes - Types and Tips to Control Your Blood Sugar Level

Diabetes - Types and Tips to Control Your Blood Sugar Level

Diabetes might not be the end of the road for you. While it is a chronic disorder, there are a number of steps you can take to minimize its effects. Before that you should know what diabetes is and its various types.

What is diabetes?

Diabetes is a metabolic disorder where the sugar in your blood is not metabolized by the body. This leads to a situation wherein sugar accumulates in your blood; this condition is known as high blood sugar. Now this can happen in two ways:

  1. Type 1 Diabetes: In this type, the beta cells of the pancreas that produce insulin (hormone that metabolizes sugar) are destroyed by the immune system of the body. This leads to reduction in insulin levels, causing blood sugar to shoot up.

  2. Type 2 Diabetes: Type 2 diabetes is a condition wherein the body cannot effectively utilize the insulin to metabolize sugar. This again leads to accumulation of sugar in the blood.

Apart from these two types, there is a third type that is known as ‘gestational diabetes’. Gestational diabetes occurs during pregnancy wherein the body produces hormones that inhibit insulin.

Now that you know the various types of diabetes, it is time to focus on the preventive measures. The various tips for high blood sugar level are:

  1. Steer Clear of Sugar: Think of sugar as your enemy, as it is something that you have to stay away from. Sugar will only add to the high blood sugar content that you are already diagnosed with.

  2. Welcome whole grains with open arms: Refined grains are a big no; that means no more of those delicious white bread sandwiches. Instead, opt for whole grains such as brown bread, brown rice and oats. Refined grains come under simple carbohydrates that cause your blood sugar levels to shoot up.

  3. Avoid over consumption of fruits: While fruits are healthy, they do contain fructose which is again, a form of sugar. So, yes eat them but limit their consumption to one serving a day.

  4. High time you realize nothing substitutes exercise: Regular exercise can help you burn calories and also keep your blood sugar levels low. It allows you to maintain healthy weight levels and improves your overall wellbeing.

  5. Take no stress: Stress has been shown to increase blood sugar, so if you are feeling stressed and can’t seem to get out of with, take steps to deal with it. Practice relaxation techniques such as meditation that can help you reduce stress and improve focus. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.

Hello firs you have to cut your weight by 25 kgs. Otherwise treatment may not help much. Blood sugar has to be checked every week. Hba1c once in 3 to 4 months. Lipid profile once in six months. Try and maintain sugar levels as close to normal as possible.

Hello lybrate user, type 1 diabetes usually symptoms begin as polyuria, polydispsia and polyphagia with associated weight loss in a young person 15-20 yrs. Any intercurrent illness may precipitate diabetic ketoacidosis during which they develop severe abdominal pain, vomitings. Most of the people come for evaluation of weight loss.
