Your father's condition can be classified as pre diabetes also known as impaired glucose tolerance. He is at increased risk of developing frank diabetes. So for now life style modifications like low sugar and fat diet, daily 30-40 minute brisk exercise etc along with blood sugar check up at least every 6 months is recommended. If sugar level does not come down to normal range, prophylactic metformin regimen would be considered. Thank you.

What are symptoms for diabetes? What are the solution for diabetes? Iam also suffer from heavy fever.

What are symptoms for diabetes? What are the solution for diabetes? Iam also suffer from heavy fever.
You are advised to take care about your high fever first. Take bed rest paracetamol tablets for 2 - 3 days. If no relief see your doctor. Symptoms of diabetes are either when one has loss of control over blood sugar level and / or when one has landed with its complications. Many times diabetes is found accidentally as there are no symptoms at all. Generally thirst, hunger, loss of weight, weakness, exhaustion, excess urination, wounds not healing, are common symptoms as of now there is no known scientific cure for diabetes. But it can be kept under control and its complications can be prevented or postponed. Diet, exercise, medications and mental peace under a qualified doctor is a right approach to effectively control diabetes.

Hello sir

Lybrate-user, please clarify whether you want to know how to control weight gain in pregnancy or want to reduce weight even otherwise. Because during pregnancy a gain of 12 to 14 kg weight is natural. Because of uterine size increase, placenta, amniotic fluid, fetus, mothers tissues particularly breast and in general. So weight gain is inevitable and necessary. If you have hypothyroidism and it is not in complete check, then also weight increases. When fully under control tsh should be between 3 to 4 milli units/l. Then only all symptoms are under control. Further, in pregnancy tsh levels should be still lower. Recommended levels are 1st trimester 0.1 to 2 milli units, 2nd trimester 0.3 to 3 milli units & 3rd 0.3 to 3.5 milli units/l. If levels are higher than these then that can lead to improper development of fetus, miscarriages and over all bad out come of pregnancy. If you have any doubts please come back. Thanks.

Mr. lybrate-user, Looking at your weight and height, it is clear that you have grade 1 obesity with a BMI of 31.42 kg/M2. This itself can cause high blood glucose level. Plus the levels mentioned are high, ideally fasting should be around 100 mg, PP 150 to 160 mg & HbA1c%<6.8. So there is a need to bring down the glucose levels. Fenugreek seeds are good, the contain fibers and are helpful in controlling glucose levels. Thanks.

I am suffering with thyroid from 4months. Is it possible to cure thyroid permanently by using ayurvedic medicine.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Mr. Lybrate-user, hypothyroidism is a thyroid hormone deficiency disorder. This hormone is required for development and functioning of brain, plus for all vital metabolic activities of the body. With out which there can be serious metabolic problems. Hence supplement of this hormone is the only treatment. Hence thre is cure for this condition. Taking thyroid hormone in appropriate dose is the only option.

Foot swelling is due to fluid retention in body leads to swelling and pain. Elevate your legs by keeping them on pillows while sleeping. This will reduce your swelling and get yourself tested for kidney function test, serum electrolyte etc.

Diabetic Foot - How It Can Be Prevented & Treated?

MBBS, MS - General Surgery, Fellowship in Vascular Surgery, Ted Rogers Fellowship

Diabetic Foot - How It Can Be Prevented & Treated?

Diabetes alters the metabolism and functioning of almost entire body system. The most important targets are the circulatory and nervous system, leading to peripheral vascular disease and neuropathy. Diabetic foot is the result of a combination of these two factors in the feet – altered/reduced blood flow to the feet combined with reduced sensation.

  1. Neuropathy: When the sugar levels are poorly controlled, then the nerves in the legs are damaged, leading to reduced or absence of sensation. The patient cannot feel pain/heat/cold. Sensory neuropathy causes loss of protective sennsation leaving the foot at risk to repetative unnoticed trauma.
  2. Peripheral vascular disease: The blood vessels which are away from the heart are affected, leading to poor blood flow from the legs to the heart. Proper blood flow is essential for overall health, and when this is affected, the peripheral foot health is affected.

Some of the common foot problems encountered in diabetics are listed below:

  1. Fungal infections: Whether a person wears shoes regularly or not, they become more prone to fungal infections. The nails become discoloured, brittle, and break off. They are difficult to treat and may require oral medications.
  2. Ulcers: Diabetic ulcers are very common. The combined effect of reduced sensation and reduced blood flow leads to ulcers, which are not painful (due to lack of sensation) and therefore are ignored and not treated promptly. They can progress and become severe, even sometimes leading to amputation. Fungal ulcer are most common in between toes and in creases of a diabetic patients
  3. Corns: Diabetics are more prone to develop corns which are thick masses of skin near the bony area of a toe. This could be in areas where the shoes rub against the toes or between the toes where there is a lot of friction. Home care includes smoothing it with a pumice stone. The person should not try to remove them on their own.  Warts, bunions, ingrown toenails, hammertoes, etc., are also very common in diabetics.

Prevention/Treatment:

  1. The first and most important step is to monitor and regulate the blood sugar levels within ranges ideal for you.
  2. Warm water to be used for washing feet, and then to be dried well, to not leave a moist area between toes
  3. Regular feet care to check for blisters, ulcers, wounds, etc.
  4. Check toenails for overall health
  5. Preferably wear closed toe shoes
  6. Wear stockings or socks and shoes that fit well
  7. Moisturise the skin well to avoid drying
  8. Avoid exposing feet to extreme weather
  9. Quit smoking
  10. Ensure blood flow is maintained by not standing or sitting for prolonged periods and with regular exercise

If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor.

Since diabetes is harmonal disease. Change in any harmone will disturb all harmones so as thyroxine so thyroid disease increases the risk of developing diabetes and vice versa.

I have type 2 Diabetes. Recently diagnosed for glomurenia (membranous).
What should be the future procedure?
in t2 dm kidney does get affected. But a strict blood sugar control will help in maintaining kidneys in good functioning condition for a very long time, that is for whole of life time. The word mentioned by you is (glomurenia membranous) is rather unclear. Diabetes does affect glomerulous, particularly the filtering membrane in it. So it is essential to maintain blood glucose levels as normal as possible. Objective is to achieve fasting glucose close to 100 mg, pp 150 to 160 mg and hba1c%<6.8 at your age. That will help you to keep kidneys in good condition. If glucose levels go high, then damage to kidney is hastened. If you have any doubts please do come back. Thanks for the query.

to reduce creatinine and urea, you will have to consume more of vegetarian diet. Avoid high protein foods like mutton and chicken and fishes. Also avoid strenuous physical activity. Consume green tea, reduce intake of high fat cheese and other milk products. These measures may be helpful in reducing creatinine and to extent urea. For hypertension it is better to use ace inhibitors or arbs, which have a beneficial effect on kidneys.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. With HbA1c% 7.2, you have confirmed diabetes. It needs to be treated with appropriate medication. Plus with your morbid obesity, there is bound to be strong resistance to insulin action, so treatment is essential. However, if you take steps to reduce weight by about 5 to 8% of present, then there is a possibility of blood glucose going down. Plus there has to be a strict control on dietary intake. Thanks.

The Psychological Impact Of Infertility And Its Treatment!

The Psychological Impact Of Infertility And Its Treatment!

Almost every man and woman craves to have a child they can call their own. This makes an inability to procreate one of the most dreaded situations. Infertility can be defined as the inability to conceive a child within 12 months of biologically appropriately timed intercourse. Infertility exacts a huge psychological toll on the person.

  • Infertility often triggers depression in a person. This may be acute and result from specific events such as the holidays, family celebrations of the news of a someone else having conceived a child or could be cyclic and coincide with phases of their fertility cycle. This depression could lead to problems at work and communication with the spouse.
  • Infertility can also make a person feel helpless and affect their self esteem. Infertility accompanied by depression can trigger the feeling of having lost control over one’s life and can make people withdraw into themselves.
  • An infertile person may also often feel guilty and make them blame themselves and their prior actions for the condition. This leads them to question their worthiness of being a good spouse and potential parent. A woman who has suffered from an STD earlier or has undergone an abortion earlier can become obsessed with blaming herself for being infertile. 
  • This affects their daily lives and ability to work. An infertile person may also feel guilty for having robbed their partner of the chance to become a parent. This can put a strain on their relationship and in many cases lead to a broken marriage.
  • When they find themselves unable to conceive a child, a couple may try to time their intercourse with ovulation tools, such as an ovulation thermometer etc. and may try different positions, some of which may be fairly uncomfortable. They may also end up having intercourse more often than desired. In order to prevent sperm from leaking out of the vagina, a woman may also find herself lying in an awkward supine position after intercourse. A combination of all these factors makes the act a chore and with time can lead to a loss of libido.
  • Infertility can also trigger anger against life for having been treated unfairly or towards other parents. This may also be displaced towards their family and friends leading to situations where they feel ostracized and unsupported.
  • When dealing with infertility, it is important to understand that neither partner is to blame. Infertility is a physiological condition and can be treated in most cases. It is important for both partners to support each other during this process and if need be consult a counselor.

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

Continue regular exercise with healthy eating habits even if you don't loose weight. TSH is borderline high, needs to be treated only if you have irregular periods or planning pregnancy. Otherwise repeat TSH after 6 months.
