First of all you need to cut the intake of sodium (if you are suffering from high blood pressure cos you have not mentioned whether you are hypotensive or hypertensive) and carbs in your diet. Then include yoga n exercise in your daily regimen. It is helpful for both blood pressure n diabetes. There r many yogasanas the help in stimulating the pancreas to keep the blood glucose levels in control. Cut down the rice intake for dinner n can have in the afternoon. Here are few tips which can help you keep your blood sugar levels at control. 1. Take fenugreek seeds 1 tspn in the morning on empty stomach 30 min before food. 2. Mix equal quantity of turmeric powder n amla powder n take it with warm water in the morning 30 min before breakfast. 3. Take cinnamon tea thats cinnamon soaked in hot water for 10 mind drink this 1 hour before breakfast and dinner.

Risk Factors for Type 2 Diabetes!

Risk Factors for Type 2 Diabetes!

Type 1 diabetes is commonly referred to as juvenile diabetes and is mostly witnessed among children. It can also occur in adults. In this condition, the body doesn’t produce enough insulin or completely stops producing insulin. The immune system, which saves the body from foreign microbes, attacks the cells that are responsible for producing insulin. The treatment methods include taking insulin shots, taking healthy diet and increased physical activity.

Type 2 diabetes is a condition wherein the insulin is produced normally, but the body is not able to use it properly due to insulin resistance. It is the most common form of diabetes. In the earlier stages, patients have high insulin levels and they can be treated with oral glucose-lowering medicines. With time, pancreatic cells get damaged and insulin may be required to control the blood sugar. The treatment plan includes medication, making lifestyle changes, and controlling blood-sugar and cholesterol levels.

Gestational diabetes is diabetes that develops in some women during pregnancy. It usually occurs around 24th week. The hormones produced during pregnancy can block insulin to be used by the body.  These women have normal blood sugar before pregnancy and most of them have normal sugar after delivery also. But they require treatment of diabetes during pregnancy and many of them may become diabetic later in life. If untreated, it can have adverse effects on pregnancy and the baby.

Secondary diabetes – Rarely, diabetes can occur due to some other diseases like cushing’s syndrome, acromegaly, pancreatitis, pancreatic surgery, trauma or some drugs like steroids etc.

Risk factors for type 2 diabetes

  1. Weight: Being overweight is a primary risk factor for diabetes. An increased amount of adipose tissue increases the risk of insulin resistance by the body. It is therefore essential to shed as much weight as one can to avoid diabetes.

  2. Inactivity: Immobility increases the risk of diabetes in a person. It causes insulin resistance, making it difficult for the body to use glucose and convert it into energy. A daily routine which is devoid of physical activity ensures fat storage in the body, which can turn into type 2 diabetes. So, engaging in moderate intensity physical activity for at least 30-45 minutes daily is very helpful.

  3. Family history: Diabetes, especially type 2, is closely linked with family history. If a person has diabetes, it is more likely that his immediate family or extended family has a history of diabetes.

  4. Ethnicity: African-Americans, people from the Indian subcontinent, Latinos, etc., are more likely to suffer from diabetes compared to their American or European counterparts.

  5. Age: Age has a direct correlation with diabetes. The age group of 45–65 is considered to be more diabetes-prone. Inactivity, immobility, and an increase of sugar intake are some of the primary reasons for developing diabetes in this age group.

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

Will a person with type 2 diabetes under control end up with the need for insulin?

Will a person with type 2 diabetes under control end up with the need for insulin?
Nobody can predict this for sure. It depends on genetic factors, duration of diabetes, type of medicines prescribed, dietary factors and exercise compliance. Some people may require insulin within 10 years while some others can be controlled on tablets for even 25 yrs.

My mother is 66 years old and she has diabetes for the last 10 years. My father is 75 years old. Well they are healthy but their blood pressure often decreases. I am 48 years old, weight 68 kg and length 176 centimeters. How to protect myself from the disease I have with my parents.

You have to follow healthy dietary habbits. Maintain a healthy weight, go for exercise. Avoid fried fatty food, junk food, preserved food. Sugar and salt intake sould be moderate. Start taking 1 tsp Amla and 1 tsp alovera juice in a cup of water every early morning as it helps in detoxification of the liver and would help in better nutrient absorption. Do some physical activity. Follow healthy breakfast, have fruits, healthy lunch including high fibre like salads and veggies. Follow green tea twicea day. Follow light dinner. Drink plenty of water.

What are the types of diabetes, What is the severity, whether it gives fatal cause? What are the remedies?
One should know only three types Type I (Insulin Dependent) Type II (Mostly controlled without Insulin) and Gestational (Only during pregnancy and mostly temporary) Although no specific complaints initially Diabetes if not controlled can cause many complications to vital organs and this may result in serious problem. There is no known scientific cure for Diabetes. But must be kept under control which is possible under any good doctor.

Mr. Lybrate-user, you are probably talking about poly cystic ovaries. (pcod). This condition can be treated with drugs. Surgery is hardly needed. It is not a completely curable condition. Various methods are available, like life style change, particularly exercise and weight reduction. Medications to regulate menstrual cycle etc. Surgery is not an option. Thanks.

I have blood sugar tested on 08-03-2015 Fasting - 139 and post fasting - 253 . This is first time. 3 months before I had checked that fasting was 114. Please suggest.

TO call any one as diabetic , your fasting sugar values should be more than 126 on at least two different occasions. ( Why ? - because fasting levels show much variations) Plus do you have any symptoms ? (like increase urination, increased thirst , etc) . Also an HbAic test would really help in this case. Currently a value in excess of 6.5 % is considered as diabetes.

SAY 'NO' TO DIABETES

SAY 'NO' TO DIABETES

Tip 1: Get more physical activity
There are many benefits to regular physical activity. Exercise can help you:
• Lose weight
• Lower your blood sugar
• Boost your sensitivity to insulin — which helps keep your blood sugar within a normal range
Research shows that both aerobic exercise and resistance training can help control diabetes, but the greater benefit comes from a fitness program that includes both.
Tip 2: Get plenty of fiber
It's rough, it's tough — and it may help you:
• Reduce your risk of diabetes by improving your blood sugar control
• Lower your risk of heart disease
• Promote weight loss by helping you feel full
Foods high in fiber include fruits, vegetables, beans, whole grains, nuts and seeds.
Tip 3: Go for whole grains
Although it's not clear why, whole grains may reduce your risk of diabetes and help maintain blood sugar levels. Try to make at least half your grains whole grains. Many foods made from whole grains come ready to eat, including various breads, pasta products and many cereals. Look for the word "whole" on the package and among the first few items in the ingredient list.
Tip 4: Lose extra weight
If you're overweight, diabetes prevention may hinge on weight loss. Every pound you lose can improve your health, and you may be surprised by how much. Participants in one large study who lost a modest amount of weight — around 7 percent of initial body weight — and exercised regularly reduced the risk of developing diabetes by almost 60 percent.
Tip 5: Skip fad diets and just make healthier choices
Low-carb diets, the glycemic index diet or other fad diets may help you lose weight at first, but their effectiveness at preventing diabetes isn't known nor are their long-term effects. And by excluding or strictly limiting a particular food group, you may be giving up essential nutrients. Instead, think variety and portion control as part of an overall healthy-eating plan.

I am suffering from hypothyroidism. I am trying to loose weight from past 7 months, but lost only 4-5 kgs. Due to this I don't feel motivated. Even if I sleep in proper time, I am not able to wake up early in the morning or before 8 AM. I feel depressed all the time. My husband comes home at around 9 pm and I am alone throughout the day. I feel very lonely and sad. What should I do?

Hello Lybrate user. Don't decide anything whether you are in depression or not. Please take help of any professional and let him/her decide your condition. If you need my help you can contact me online also. Why do you taking so pressure to wake up 8 or after 8 ,infact you are creating such pressure on yourself. If you want to wake up early then slowly it can be possible. Infact you are thinking so much not only regarding one thing but related to many things such as to weight loss, wake up timing, loneliness etc and these different types of thoughts which is running in the back of your mind is creating unnecessary pressure on you. No doubt these thoughts becomes endless and goes on and on. And many times it creates sadness lonliness everything. But its not like that you can't control this. No need to take such loads, some times we need to live without fear rules everything. Everything is within you happiness sadness ,then why to choose sadness, lonliness.is it something that someone has applied sadness lonliness depression on you --its no. It is only you who has created this ,think about the time when you were happy ,that time also some part of sadness was within you but your happiness dominated everything ,so its not so difficult to choose this happiness over your lonliness and sadness. Once you will adapt these things you will start to live every second of life. Make yourself busy as much as you can ,make some friend ,join any hobby classes ,in short make yourself busy as much as you can. You can't control other things around you for example timings or work culture of any one's job infact it is not even required ,there will be many things around us which will make us uncomfortable or uneasy and no one can control that but we can control ourself and can become friend of ownself. Any counsellor can help you lot in this. Take care.

Thyroid diseases and Diabetes are quite closely related to each other. All diabetics, especially Type 1 diabetics, should undergo screening for thyroid diseases as adviced by their Diabetologists. As thyroid diseases are more common in women, all female diabetics should definitely get screened too.
