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.

Lybrate-user, he needs to be put on insulin injections right away, under the care of competent diabetologist. Multiple doses in a day will be needed. Plus daily monitoring of blood glucose at home is (smbg) needed. It is serious condition if appropriate care is not taken consequences can be very serious. Please do not waste any time.

Thyroid is a gland which secrets hormones. Either increased or decreased levels are found in diseased condition. Generally fat fertile female of age forty are considered to be prone to this. Your headache may be due to acidity which is disturbing your abdomen. Regularize your diet, sleep and exercise avoid tension. Some simple antacids may help. Regards.

Lybrate-user, some times suddenly different symptoms can be seen, particularly with gastrointestinal tract. Indigestion, nauseating feeling can be seen more often in a few patients of diabetes a condition called gastroparesis may develop which delays stomach emptying and hence appetite may be affected. It is very difficult to conclude what exactly might be the reason. My suggestion is to take a lighter food for next few days or eat small quantity of food per meal and take more frequent meal. Also continue walking for about 45 minutes to 1 hour daily. That will aid digestion. Maintain bp and blood glucose levels with in prescribed limit. Avoid fatty and highly processed foods as well as sweets. Consume more of green leafy vegetables. Maintain your glucose levels with in prescribed limit. Thanks.

Poor vision in his case can be due to the following reasone 1. Due to fluctuating sugar levels vision may be poor 2. Malaria can cause reaction in eye 3. Anti-malarial drugs could also cause toxicity leading to poor vision without a complete examination it is difficult to comment. It is advisable to consult a eye specialist personally.

Tsh is 26 against a max. 0f 5. Esr 15 against max. Of 7. These tests were done when complained of ibs. I am taking medicines for thyroid. For ibs what should be done?

MBBS, MD - Internal Medicine
Internal Medicine Specialist, Faridabad
you can take medicines for thyroid..tab. thyronorm 150 mcg before meal.and for ibs you cut out such items as carbonated beverages, vegetables — especially cabbage, broccoli and cauliflower — and raw fruits.Fiber supplements. Taking fiber supplements, such as psyllium (Metamucil) or methylcellulose (Citrucel), with fluids may help control constipation. Fiber obtained from food may cause much more bloating compared with a fiber supplement. If fiber doesn't help symptoms, your doctor may prescribe an osmotic laxative such as milk of magnesia or polyethylene glycol.

Sugar or more appropriately glucose is the only energy currency of the body. Without glucose, the first cells that get effected in the body are brain cells which cannot withstand the deficiency of glucose for even 15 minutes. We believe that whatever sugar that rises or falls in our blood is related only to the food that we have eaten immediately. This is partially true because our body keeps on storing surplus glucose and also creates its own glucose in the liver, when such a need arises. When we fast, the gates of such glucose stores are opened by the body so that our cells don's die out of starvation. When you took a small meal- it was not just the contribution of that meal but also your glucose stores that made that 124 mg rise!

I am 27 years old and having diabetes range 100-200 can the diabetes be reversed. I jog and walk daily.
Your question is not clear. Please clearly explain what is 'Range 100-200' If we assume that your Fasting Sugar is 100 and PP is 200, then you are in Pre-Diabetic Stage. # You are still in a stage where it can be brought down. # You need to avoid Sugars/Potatoes/White Rice/Biscuits/Pastries etc. # You should also avoid fried foods/pizzas/burgers/fries etc. # You need to get your weight down by about 8 Kgs. # This will control your Sugar levels and prevent you from slipping into full blown diabetes.
