My cousin is 76 years old and a diabetic patient. He is not having sleep in night regularly. someday he gets at 10 pm and someday he gets at 3am. But he sleeps 5-6 hrs. He takes sleeping pills but not regularly. Is not getting sleep regularly is any disease? Or since he sleeps for 6 hrs lately is ok? Is it necessary to consult a Physician? If so who is the best physician? Please suggest. He is in a rural village near Madurai in Tamilnadu.

Mr. Lybrate-user, sometimes when diabetes is not well controlled, there is considerable amount of glucose present in the urine, this also pulls more water in the bladder. Hence, there is a repeated urge to urinate, especially at night and patient has to get up 3 to 4 times, disturbing the sleep. This may result in feeling sleepy during day time. So please see that blood sugar is in good control. Secondly as one gets old, sleep does reduce. A well controlled diabetes patient should have fasting glucose around 100 mg, pp 150 to 160 mg/100ml and hba1c%<7. If that is achieved then sleep disturbance is reduced to a great degree.

hello Anand, contrary to popular belief Diabetes is not always progressive disease. It may be reversed or progress can be stopped. it might have been difficult for you but it is very important to lose weight for you. many of the diabetic medicines unfortunately increases weight. But if you reduce weight by 30 kg, your diabetes will improve and you will need very less medicine. All the problems associated will also go down. there is a general approach and a specific approach as per individual patients metabolic profile. i will give you a general approach to try for 4 weeks. 1. do not eat anything sugary or sweet. 2. eat plenty of salad in lunch and dinner 3. Eat only 3 times per day. 4. do atleast 30 min of exercise every day of any kind. you will need to continously monitor your fasting and post meal sugar and reduce dose as per advise of your treating doctor, once you start losing weight.

Is there any Ayurvedic/herbal/homoeopathic (or any other pathy) treatment available in the world for permanent cure of diabetes? My elder brother's sugar level is 580/450.

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. 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. 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. Your brother can take homoeopathic mother tincture gymnemna sylvestra q, 30 drops, thrice daily, after meals, in a cup of water. Also he needs to walk at least 1 hour daily without any interval. Also he needs to take a low carbohydrate rich diet & avoid rice, sweet dishes, fruits, cold drinks, fast foods, alcoholic beverages, potato etc.

You can control insulin by taking oral anti diabetic drugs like tab glimiperide 2 mg with metformin combination. I am sure you may be already on that treatment. Tab voglibose 0.3 mg with each meal may be reduce after food glucose increase. In addition you have to adhere to suggested life style change, like exercise and lesser eating. Your bmi must be nearer 23 kg per sq meter.

My mother's age is 50 years. She had diabetes from last 3 years, she is using glycomet 500 mg daily twice morning one and evening one. Her latest blood sugar test results are: fasting Blood sugar : 90 mg post lunch Blood sugar: 150 mg. She had rice in the morning and after 4 hours we have taken post lunch sample, without taking any tablet. Without tablet her post lunch sugar level is normal, means we can stop to take tablets? Is her sugar levels come to normal?

Do it after 2-3 days without medicine and see again. If it comes normal do it again after a week and if consistently both the samples, fasting and post meal remain normal, then stop medicine but continue dietary restrictions and exercises. Afterwards do monthly follow up checks and act as per reports.

Hello, I have one important query here and I would really much appreciate if anyone can give me a meaningful suggestion. My Mom is suffering from Diabetes since 26 years and currently she is on insulin. Her Diabetic level used to be high sometimes but now a days the level is decreasing. She does take timely medicines and goes for a regular checkup once in a month but recently the doc advised to take some tests which included some Kidney tests, ECG, Eco cardiology etc. The doc said that her creatinine level is high which needs some Av Fistula to be done. I was little surprised after doing a little research what Fistula is. It seems it's a preparation for Kidney dialysis. She is in Kashmir presently and I really don't think that the medical facility is good there and the doctors too. I was planning to get her here to Delhi for check up and to figure out what needs to be done in order to balance creatinine level. I would request you if you give me a little bit of explanation about the procedure and also suggest me which hospital will be good to visit for the same. I don't want to take any chance. Will appreciate your help. Thanks.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Your information is very general. There are no specific values mentioned to know exactly what is the situation. When diabetes goes on for over 20 plus years, that too if improperly controlled (with high blood glucose levels), then kidneys are affected, that leads to increased level of creatinne. You have not given either blood glucose levels (fasting & PP & HbA1c%), BP readings plus creatinine and urea. If doctor has recommended dialysis means matter is serious enough. Any good hospital in Delhi is good enough as all of them should be having specialists. Thanks.

There are no side effects provided your TSH is kept in the normal range (0.4-4.5 mU/L). Hence keep monitoring your TSH regularly as suggested by your endocrinologist.

8 Surprising Facts About Male Infertility

MD-Ayurveda, Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)
Sexologist, Haldwani
8 Surprising Facts About Male Infertility

From riding bikes to wearing tighty whities and, ironically, using sex toys, there are lots of rumors and myths surrounding male infertility. So you might find the reality a bit shocking (we did!).PS: When you're done reading, show this article to your guy - male infertility is just as likely to be the reason a couple is having trouble conceiving, even though female infertility gets the most lip service.

Bikes aren't bad for below

You've probably heard the rumors that bikes can do damage to his nether regions, but there's actually not much truth to this one. One small study from Austria found that male mountain bikers may experience more infertility from scrotal damage caused by jolting over rough terrain - but the study only looked at men who logged at least 3,000 miles a year (that's an average of two-plus hours a day, six days a week), which is pretty extreme. Plus, the study concluded that the bike's narrow, racing-type seats were to blame and that using newer, wider seats with cutout holes was a safe solution. The study's limited findings have been widely criticized in the medical community, and according to Karen Boyle, MD, FACS, director of Reproductive Medicine and Surgery, Sexuality and Aesthetics at Chesapeake Urology Associates and clinical instructor of urology at George Washington University School of Medicine, there is no strong data to support the idea that cycling is bad for fertility. So even if your partner is the Lance Armstrong of mountain biking, you don't need to ban bikes. In fact, cycling is a great form of exercise, and staying healthy and fit is key for fertility.

Saunas and hot tubs are trouble

While many men like to follow their workout with a relaxing hot tub or sauna session, if you're trying for a baby, ask your man to skip both, says Boyle. Exposure to the high temperatures in saunas and hot tubs can heat things up down there, and if the temperature of the testicles gets too high, it can kill sperm and interfere with sperm production, potentially resulting in low sperm count and motility (read: There won't be so many of those swimmers, and they won't move so well). The damage isn't permanent, though, so tell your guy he can go back to his regular routine as soon as you see a positive on that pregnancy test.

Boxers are best

The answer to the boxers vs. briefs debate? Well, if you're trying to conceive, it actually doesn't matter. 'Men should wear whatever they feel most comfortable in,' insists Boyle, who says there's no conclusive evidence to support the idea that tight underwear or pants could do damage by squishing a guy's man parts or increasing scrotal temperature.

Laptops can burn more than just your lap

Considering laptops can get hot enough to burn their legs, guys might want to keep them away from the crown jewels too. There's evidence that just like in hot tubs and saunas, the heat from a laptop can raise the scrotal temperature, which, again, may interfere with sperm production. While not all experts agree that laptops can cause infertility, Boyle says that if you're trying to conceive, you may want to keep the laptop on a table or desk just to be safe.

Cell phones can cause interference

Lately, cell phones have gotten a bad rap, as some experts have linked them to a range of problems, including brain tumors, cancer, and infertility. So what's the deal? Well, we still don't fully know what the electromagnetic radiation in the form of radio waves that cell phones emit is doing to our bodies. But some studies have shown that it can lead to higher levels of free radicals in sperm samples, possibly decreasing the quality of those swimmers. 'While better studies are still needed,' says Boyle, 'the current data on infertility [and cell phones] is concerning enough to me that I suggest men keep cell phones out of their pockets and off their belts.' Hmm...maybe it's time men start embracing the man purse.

Age is a factor

While women are constantly being warned about the difficulty of conceiving as they get older, it turns out that even though men can (and regularly do) father children well after crossing the senior citizen mark, male fertility does decline with age. According to Joseph A. Hill, MD, president and CEO of The Fertility Centers of New England, sperm production decreases in men after age 40 and, certainly, after the big 5-0. Still, unlike women, who undergo menopause, men can conceivably conceive well after that (ahem, Rod Stewart).

Stress plays a major role in fertility

While you might not be surprised that your lifestyle plays a role in fertility, you might not realize how large a role stress plays in both male and female fertility problems. For guys, stress can lead to impotence, erectile dysfunction and even shut down the hypothalamic-pituitary-testicular axis (a fancy term for the group of glands that play a critical role in developing and regulating your reproductive system) - all of which can interfere with fertility. While it's next to impossible to avoid stress completely, it's important for both of you to work on managing your stress, especially if you're finding the whole getting pregnant thing...well, pretty damn stressful. So regularly do stress-reducing activities together, like going for walks, exercising, meditating or just sharing some laughs.

Expanding waistlines won't help you expand your family

Both of you should watch your weight if starting a family is part of the plan. So if you're trying to get in better shape to prep your body for baby, get your partner on board too. Adopting a healthy lifestyle will certainly boost your chances of conceiving. Plus, obesity in men is associated with decreased sperm count and quality, and excessive weight may also be associated with misshapen sperm, which can interfere with the sperm's ability to reach and penetrate the egg.

You must be aware diabetes and hypertension are diseases which can only be controlled by proper medication, diet and exercise, there is cure for both these. Acidity and gas trouble are related conditions, you are aware of some foods increasing acidity as well as gaseousness. It is essential that those foods are avoided. To reduce acidity you should eat at specific intervals, avoid high spicy and oily foods. Also reduce tea/coffee and aerated drinks, practice some aasanas such as pawan muktasan, manduk asana, these should help.

I am 37 year old. Had a history of gestational diabetes 7 years back when I was pregnant. No diabetes please after that. Just recently found out that fast level of sugar was 126 please and please was under normal range. Diet control and walk has brought my fasting level to 114. I want to ask if I plan for second child. I might put on weight. Will I get diabetes again. Can I prevent it ?

Yes you might get diabetes during 2nd pregnancy again. Continue the diet and exercise and have frequent sugar check ups during your pregnancy. It is not a contraindication for pregnancy. But note that the diagnosis of diabetes during pregnancy is slightly different. Even after delivery, you should continue checking every year even if sugars are normal. You are likely to develop diabetes on a permanent basis whether you have a 2nd pregnancy or not. The appearance of diabetes has nothing to do with gaining weight during pregnancy. It is a hormonal effect.
