Symptoms of blood sugar and it's prevention. In case of Low BP. Pl suggest what can I do.
People with diabetes should undergo regular physical examination, which includes consultation with a doctor; fundus examination; electrocardiogram, stress test (treadmill test); foot examination for blood circulation, sensation and vibration perception, ulcer prone areas; along with necessary laboratory investigations. 30% of people with type 2 diabetes can control diabetes by proper diet, regular exercise and yoga alone. In other cases medicines and in some cases, insulin may be required. No restriction in diet is required in diabetes. Patients with diabetes should be advised to take a healthy and balanced diet. Sweet substance and fatty foods such as ice cream, sweets, cakes, biscuits, chocolate, etc. Should be avoided. Green vegetables and salads can be taken freely. Meals should be divided 4 to 6 times a day. Eating fruits are beneficial for diabetes patients. More sweet and ripe fruits like mango, sapodilla, custard apple, banana, etc. Should not be taken, if your diabetes is not under control. Diabetic patients should make regular exercise and physical activity or yoga as a routine part of their life. Generally, exercise should be done early in the morning. One should keep sweet handy during exercise for any emergency conditions like hypoglycemia. Patient education program and counseling is a must for every person with diabetes for total management of diabetes. It helps the patient to comply with drugs and lifestyle modification more effectively. The clinical management of diabetes now has significantly more options than ever before and every year new molecule and technologies are coming in the market for better diabetes management. But, everything will fail if the lifestyle is not adhered. With proper diagnosis and appropriate treatment, one can live long, healthy and cheerful life without developing diabetes complications.

Mr Meraj Khan, If you have diabetes then depending on the type T1 or T2 DM and sugar level, treatment will vary. In addition to drugs you will have to take a properly planned diet and exercise regularly for at least 1 hour. If you are looking for specific treatment please come in a private conversation, where I can give specific advice. In this communication we are supposed to give only general guidelines.

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

Certificate in Basic Course on Diabetes Management, CCEBDM Certificate in Diabetes, MBBS
General Physician, Pune
Will a person with Type 2 diabetes under control end up with the need for insulin?
Diet, exercise, oral medication are three basic steps to control type 2 diabetes. Depending on availability of free endogenous insulin and control this will work in most of the cases but at times during temporary crisis like surgery, heart attack etc insulin has to be brought in temporarily. When things go out of hand insulin may have to be introduced may not be in all cases.

Dear Lybrate User, One of the major nutritional substance required for human body is carbohydrate. We take carbohydrate in the form of rice, wheat, sugar etc. The complex molecules of carbohydrate are broken down into simple glucose molecules during digestion & released in the blood stream to be absorbed by the muscle cells. Muscle cells utilise the glucose molecules to release energy by breaking down those glucose molecules. Insulin hormone plays a vital role in the absorption of the glucose molecules by the muscle cells. In abnormal conditions, either due to less production of insulin or due to resistance to insulin, the process of absorption of glucose by the muscles comes to a stand still. The glucose molecules remains in the bloodstream which results in the increase in the blood sugar level. The failure of utilisation of the glucose molecules by the muscle cells results in production of less energy than normal condition. This is externally manifested as the fatigue & tiredness of the patient. This excess amount of blood sugar compels the kidney to function more than normal level in order to excrete the blood sugar molecules through urine. As a result the patient suffers from frequent urination. This abnormal condition is clinically known as DIABETES MELLITUS. Once a patient is diagnosed with Diabetes he has to take regular medicine to keep his blood sugar level within normal limits. However, the patient does not need to take medicine unless his/her Post. Prandial Blood Sugar level reaches 200. If Post. Prandial Blood Sugar level reaches 200 then patient should take the following Homoeopathic medications:- 1)Homeopathic URANIUM NIT 3X TABLETS (R.S. BHARGAVA company). Take one tablet thrice daily, in empty stomach 2) 30 drops of Homeopathic Mother Tincture GYMNEMA SYLVESTRA Q, thrice daily, after meals, in a cup of water Along with intake of medicines the patient need to walk at least 1 hour daily without any interval. In order to decrease the intake of carbohydrate in diet the patient should avoid rice, sweet dishes, fruits, cold drinks, fast foods, alcoholic beverages, potato etc

Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Mr Harendra Kumar, Thyroid is a normal gland present in all of us. It produce a hormone called thyroxine which is essential for brain development, almost every single metabolic activity in the body. Deficiency of thyroxine hormone causes hypothyroidism and excess cause hyperthyroidism. Hypothyroidism is a more common condition. It is recognised by increased level of TSH in blood and reduction in T4 and T3 hormones. A blood test helps us to detect this. Symptoms of hypothyroidism are : Weight gain, intolerance to cold, reduced sweating, slow heart rate, early fatigue and tired feeling, swelling of face and legs, irregularities of menstruation, difficulties in speech, inability to concentrate etc. Solution is to take Thyroxine tablets daily, dose is based on body weight and TSH levels.

Reasons To Eat Walnuts Daily

M.Sc. in Dietetics and Food Service Management , Post Graduate Diploma In Computer Application, P.G.Diploma in Clinical Nutrition & Dietetics , B.Sc.Clinical Nutrition & Dietetics
Dietitian/Nutritionist, Mumbai


Walnuts belong to the tree nut family, along with brazil nuts, cashews, hazelnuts, macadamia nuts, pecans, pine nuts, and pistachios. Each has its own unique nutritional profile.

One-quarter cup of walnuts, for instance, provides more than 100 percent of the daily recommended value of plant-based omega-3 fats, along with high amounts of copper, manganese, molybdenum, and biotin. Some of the most exciting research about walnuts includes:

1. Cancer-fighting properties

Walnuts may help reduce not only the risk of prostate cancer, but breast cancer as well. In one study, mice that ate the human equivalent of 2.4 ounces of whole walnuts for 18 weeks had significantly smaller and slower-growing prostate tumors compared to the control group that consumed the same amount of fat but from other sources.

Overall the whole walnut diet reduced prostate cancer growth by 30 to 40 percent. According to another study on mice, the human equivalent of just two handfuls of walnuts a day cut breast cancer risk in half, and slowed tumor growth by 50 percent as well. 1

2. Heart health

Walnuts contain the amino acid l-arginine, which offers multiple vascular benefits to people with heart disease, or those who have increased risk for heart disease due to multiple cardiac risk factors.

If you struggle with herpes, you may want to avoid or limit walnuts, as high levels of arginine can deplete the amino acid lysine, which can trigger herpes recurrences.

Walnuts also contain the plant-based omega-3 fat alpha-linolenic acid (ala), which is anti-inflammatory and may prevent the formation of pathological blood clots. Research shows that people who eat a diet high in ala are less likely to have a fatal heart attack and have a nearly 50 percent lower risk of sudden cardiac death. 2

Eating just four walnuts a day has been shown to significantly raise blood levels of heart-healthy ala, 3 and walnut consumption supports healthful cholesterol levels.

Separate research showed that eating just one ounce of walnuts a day may decrease cardiovascular risk, 4 and among those at high cardiovascular risk, increased frequency of nut consumption significantly lowers the risk of death. 5

3. Rare and powerful antioxidants

Antioxidants are crucial to your health, as they are believed to help control how fast you age by combating free radicals, which are at the heart of age-related deterioration.

Walnuts contain several unique and powerful antioxidants that are available in only a few commonly eaten foods. This includes the quinone juglone, the tannin tellimagrandin, and the flavonol morin. 6

Walnuts contain antioxidants that are so powerful at free-radical scavenging that researchers called them" remarkable" 7 and research has shown that walnut polyphenols may help prevent chemically-induced liver damage. 8

In another study, researchers found that nuts, especially walnuts, have potent antioxidant powers. Walnut polyphenols had the best efficacy among the nuts tested and also the highest lipoprotein-bound antioxidant activity. The researchers concluded: 9

" nuts are high in polyphenol antioxidants which by binding to lipoproteins would inhibit oxidative processes that lead to atherosclerosis in vivo. In human supplementation studies nuts have been shown to improve the lipid profile, increase endothelial function and reduce inflammation, all without causing weight gain"

4. Weight control

Adding healthful amounts of nuts such as walnuts to your diet can help you to maintain your ideal weight over time. In one review of 31 trials, those whose diets included extra nuts or nuts substituted for other foods lost about 1.4 extra pounds and half an inch from their waists. 10 eating walnuts is also associated with increased satiety after just three days. 11

5. Improved reproductive health in men

One of the lesser-known benefits of walnuts is their impact on male fertility. Among men who consume a western-style diet, adding 75 grams (a bit over one-half cup) of walnuts daily significantly improved sperm quality, including vitality, motility, and morphology. 12

6. Brain health

Walnuts contain a number of neuroprotective compounds, including vitamin e, folate, melatonin, omega-3 fats, and antioxidants. Research shows walnut consumption may support brain health, including increasing inferential reasoning in young adults. 13

One study also found that consuming high-antioxidant foods like walnuts" can decrease the enhanced vulnerability to oxidative stress that occurs in aging" increase health span" and also" enhance cognitive and motor function in aging" 14

7. Diabetes

The beneficial dietary fat in walnuts has been shown to improve metabolic parameters in people with type 2 diabetes. Overweight adults with type 2 diabetes who ate one-quarter cup of walnuts daily had significant reductions in fasting insulin levels compared to those who did not, and the benefit was achieved in the first three months. 15.

Hello. It seems she had accelerated hypertension because of which she was hospitalised. To control accelerated bp, give injectables including diuretics, which cause reduction in bp soon and frequent urination. On discharge injectable drugs are shifted to oral. Do check her bp at home even, because diuretics tend to cause dehydration and fall in blood preesure more during summers. If this is so, do consult your physician. Some orthopedic medicines include analgesics which cause gastritis, do take it after meals and antacids along.

Hello, looking at your wife's height and weight, it clear that she has a bmi of 30.35 kgs/m2, showing grade 1 obesity. For good blood glucose control weight reduction is essential. Her ideal body weight should be 67 kgs, she is over weight by 18 kgs. This definitely hampers blood glucose control. Secondly, we may have do a proper titration of insulin dosage in relation to blood glucose levels. Plus there may be a need for introducing an additional drug or a long acting insulin. Plus she has to seriously look at her diet and exercise so that weight reduction is done. All these things together will definitely help in better control of blood glucose levels. Initially we should target her fasting glucose level, bring it down to 100 - 110 mg/ 100 ml. Then target pp level. Thanks.

Mr. Lybrate-user, diabetes can only be treated by either oral anti-diabetic drugs or insulin injections or both. Plus diet restriction and regular exercise. Unfortunately there are no other drugs in any branch of medicine which control blood sugar. So my suggestion is to continue present treatment. I have seen patients in my practice who stopped modern medicine and started other therapies and have come back with exceptionally high blood sugar. Now the choice is yours.

What are the effects of taking synthetic thyroxine? If it remains within the zone ,does it have bad effects?
Synthetic thyroxine is given to supplement the endogenous thyroxine and does not have any side effects. Side effects from the other components in the medicine have been reported but are practically inconsequential in clinical practice.

Hello, if she has diabetes then through out pregnancy blood glucose levels should be between 90 to 120 mg. This is all through the day. Otherwise pregnancy out come is affected. Can lead to miscarriages, large baby etc. She has to be on insulin with very strict glucose control. However t 3 & t4 being high tsh low is fine. It would have been better if actual levels were mentioned. Thanks. Most important is strict blood glucose control.

Please get your hemoglobin checked, because it is possible you may have anaemia, which could be the reason for tiredness. If there is no anaemia detected, then please eat adequate diet with proteins like eggs and a lot green vegetables. You also must be aware that in hypothyroidism one should avoid soya containing products, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, mustard and coffee as these items affect treatment. Please inform the hb level.

Causes of Infertility & Risks Involved

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology, MBBS, DGO
Gynaecologist, Mumbai
Causes of Infertility & Risks Involved

Infertility is a condition where a couple, trying to conceive in a natural way is not able to do so even after one year of trying. So here are the causes and risks for this condition.

Causes: There are many causes of infertility. It may be due to a condition present in one or both partners. As per a medical study, 20% of the cases of infertility are due to males, while 40% to 50% cases are due to problems in the female partner. 30% of the cases suffer from infertility due to problems in both males and females. Ovulation and fertilisation are the main elements of the conception process and any condition in the female or male can upset either function, which can make it difficult to conceive.

While abnormal sperm production and transport may be a common condition that leads to infertility in males, other factors like side effects of cancer treatments and too much exposure to toxins and chemicals can also play an important role in this regard. For females, the causes of infertility may range from ovulation disorders, uterine and fibroid tumours, uterine and cervical anomalies.

Risks: There are a number of factors that put a male or a female at risk of infertility. Being in your mid 30s usually has an adverse effect on the ovulation and production of well functioning sperm. Further, smoking and tobacco are among the main causes of infertility in either partner.

Excessive alcohol consumption may also lead to this problem. Being overweight or underweight can also make a person infertile. Further, not getting enough exercise and routine activities out of your day, can lead to this condition as well. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Gynaecologist.
