Hello, Mentioned blood glucose levels are within normal range. In a normal person there is nothing like low glucose level. That can happen if a person has insulinoma, an excess insulin producing timor. Looking at your weight and height it is clear that you are having grade 1 obesity witha BMI of 30.06 kgs /M2 (normal <23 kgs/M2). Thanks.

Apart from all lifestyle modifications if the patient is under stress, tension and strain, blood glucose levels will not be under control. So try asking him to meditate, deep breathing exercises etc. Also the result varies from ran to person. Consume Fresubin DM supplement 2 scoops in 200 ml low fat milk at 10 am and 10 pm daily until sugar levels are controlled.

A high uric acid level is considered a risk factor for developing diabetes. In addition, you have blood sugar levels in the pre-diabetic range. Continue glyciphage (metformin). You might need to add febuxostat. Get your diabetologist's advice. By the way, how is your kidney function?

Patients with increased uric acid and no symptoms usually do not require therapy until they develop kidney stones or joint problems, the possibility of which is low if you are asymptotic with such high uric acid. You will have to follow a lifestyle where you should avoid alcohol, peas, beans, rajma chola. Many times excess and strenuous exercise may lead to increased uric acid levels. Avoid that. Take plenty water and get physician consultation at least 6 monthly.

Intra Uterine Insemination (IUI) - When To Go For It?

MD
Gynaecologist, Mumbai
Intra Uterine Insemination (IUI) - When To Go For It?

For the benefit of couples suffering from infertility, modern medical science has introduced several innovative procedures. Some of the popular procedures are In-vitro Fertilization (IVF), Intra Uterine Insemination (IUI), Gamete Intrafallopian Transfer (GIFT), Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI), donor eggs and embryos and so on. In addition to these, there are several drugs and surgical procedures that help the couple in getting rid of infertility. Among all these procedures, IUI has gained popularity in the field of gynaecology and infertility treatment procedures. The IUI treatment is also popularly called as artificial insemination procedure. Although this is a popular procedure, it is appropriate that you should also understand its pros and cons.

IUI procedure in brief:
In simple terms, the IUI procedure involves placing the sperm inside the womb or uterus, which in turn would assist in fertilization of the egg. As a result of this procedure, the sperm reaches the fallopian tube, which enhances the chances or rate of egg fertilisation.

Conditions precedent of IUI Procedure:
Before initiating the IUI procedure, the fast moving eggs are separated from the slow moving eggs. This separation is done in the laboratory. Further, in order to undergo IUI procedure, the women should be less than 40 years of age. On the other hand, apart from healthy fallopian tube, the women should also have higher ovarian reserves. Also, the sperm should have minimum mortality rate. However, IUI procedure is adopted only if the fallopian tube is healthy. IUI procedure is suggested in case the couple is having difficulty in vaginal intercourse, either because of psychosexual reasons or for reasons of physical disability.

The IUI procedure can be performed either with the partner’s egg or with the donor’s egg. Some of the other important aspects of IUI procedure are briefly discussed here:

  1. The IUI procedure is a short duration procedure and it can be completed within a few minutes. This procedure does not cause any discomfort or pain. The procedure does not require any hospitalisation or administration of anesthesia. Further, the procedure also does not cause any side effects. In fact, compared to the IVF procedure, IUI is cost-effective.
  2. In order to enhance the level of success, the gynaecologist may suggest IUI procedure every month. In some cases, the gynaecologist may also prescribe a few medicines to simulate the ovulation procedure. Except this, IUI may not involve extensive medication.

Summary:
You may undergo the IUI procedure under the supervision of sufficiently experienced gynaecologist. Further, you may also ensure the hospital is equipped with modern state of art machineries for carrying out the IUI procedure.

Lybrate-user, as mentioned hypothyroidism treatment has to be for lifetime. There is no option. There are no other remedies. In fact on treatment tsh levels should be around 3 to 4 milli units / ml, then only all the symptoms including hair loss will be under control.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. It is good to know that with regular medication you have been able to control diabetes very well. Apart from taking necessary medication it is equally important to take a properly planned diet and exercise regularly so that your blood glucose levels remain in good control. Present levels look very good. Just check HbA1c% also. That will give an idea of long term control. Current treatment looks to be working very well. Thanks.

Suffering From Type 2 Diabetes - 10 Tips For Staying Healthy!

Suffering From Type 2 Diabetes - 10 Tips For Staying Healthy!

Type 2 diabetes is commonly seen in adults, but nowadays its prevalence is rapidly increasing in young adults and even teenagers. It is a chronic disorder that adversely affects the way your body processes and metabolizes the glucose (blood sugar). 

In Type 2 Diabetes, your body either resist the effects of insulin, a hormone that controls the sugar flow into the cells or does not produce adequate insulin to maintain a normal glucose level. Incorporating a healthy living, with the focus being on eating healthy and exercising regularly (for about 30-45 minutes) can help keep Diabetes Type 2 in check.

  1. Take small and frequent meals i.e. 4-6 times a day spread across regular time intervals. Also, carry a quick fix of carbs that can come to aid when the sugar levels drop. 
  2. Foods rich in fiber and complex carbohydrates, such as bread, vegetables, fruits and whole grain cereals should be at the top of the priority food list. Stay away from fatty or fried food. 
  3. Keep a check on your glucose level regularly at home with the help of a blood glucose meter. 
  4. A three monthly HBA1C test (three-month average blood sugar) can help to know overall blood sugar control. 
  5. Limit consumption of alcohol and completely cut down on tobacco. 
  6. Get up from your couch and hit the nearest jog course or do the exercise of your choice. There is no substitute to physical activities if you are on your way to control Diabetes; be if any type. 
  7. Assess cholesterol and blood pressure count periodically. 
  8. Because of nerve damage and poor blood circulation, your foot may have to bear the brunt of this disorder as well. Take good care of your feet. Check your feet for swelling, red spots and blisters; wear special shoes with a soft pair of socks that can keep your feet dry. Get your feet examine by special instruments for blood circulation and sensation in feet. 
  9. Diabetes damages oral health as well. Visit a dentist for a gum and tooth checkup at least a couple of times in a year. 
  10. Get your kidneys and retina tested as diabetes may weaken the blood vessels of these areas. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can ask a free question.

Hi, Can a nodule in the thyroid gland, lead to thyroid problems and can it lead to weight gain.

Hi, Can a nodule in the thyroid gland, lead to thyroid problems and can it lead to weight gain.
lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. A thyroid nodule can be of many different types. So it is difficult to say whether it can cause hypothyroidism or not. If it is a large nodule may lead to goiter and hypothyroidism. Most important is test the hormone levels and also monitor the nodule periodically for any change in size and its nature. Thanks.

I am 61 diabetic for the last 27 years and on insulin for the last15 years. I have a problem in my right foot. Doctor called it charkoot foot. Is there any treatment for it?

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Most foot problems that people with diabetes face arise from two serious complications of the disease: nerve damage and poor circulation. One of the more critical foot problems these complications can cause is charcot arthropathy, which can deform the shape of the foot and lead to disability. Is not as easy 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) 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. For sugar 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 privately with all details like your daily eating pattern and medicines you take. I assure you a proper guidance. If you keep in touch.
