Mr. lybrate-user, 340 mg of blood glucose is very high level and it is dangerous too. If not well treated can lead to severe complications of diabetes. Tablet Jalra (Vildagliptin 50 mg) is a good drug used to treat diabetes Type 2. Normally it is very well tolerated. As regards the second name mentioned, I am not aware as to what is (or are) the ingredients. It will be good if you give following details like fasting, PP glucose levels, HbA1c%, dietary pattern & extent of daily exercise, plus weight and height. Then I will be able to guide. Thanks.

So, after long analyzing I was decided to do nose operation to straighten nose and it was successful last year. But, the problem is still peopled give bad expression but with tiny amount when compare to previous one. Due to this I was alone in my room, not going to outside just college to home.Please tell.

Diabetes and insulin at young age is depressing. See some juvenile diabetics and their life style in real life or net groups, you will feel you are not alone. They have achieved so much living with diabetes. You need not achieve like them. But you will not be worried about other's facial expression and feel bad. You can not live alone. The earlier you get adjusted to others expression, the better it is for you. You have to go out and mix up with all sorts of people. Start with known classmates and cousins with whom you are comfortable. Slowly expand to others. Best of luck.

Diabetes - The rising epidemic

MBBS, DNB, Diploma Dyslipidemia, CCEBDM, CCMTD

Diabetes - The rising epidemic

India is now in the midst of a diabetes epidemic, with an adult prevalence rate of nine per cent and almost 69 million people living with diabetes. In another 15 years, the figure is expected to rise to 101 million. In all this, more than 90 percent of cases are lifestyle-induced.

Individuals with diabetes do not have any symptoms for long periods of time and may have complications at the time of diagnosis. Common examples such as retinopathy (blindness), nephropathy (kidney disease), neuropathy (nerve damage) and diabetic foot (gangrene and amputations in extreme cases) affect a large proportion of individuals with diabetes. Approximately a third of those with diabetes are known to develop retinopathy. Diabetes is also known to increase the risk of cardiovascular diseases (heart attack and stroke); nearly half of those with diabetes die of heart attack.

A bad lifestyle is what propels this epidemic while an inadequate response from the health system results in debilitating complications. The staggering increase in cases of diabetics and prediabetics has been attributed to lifestyle changes as a result of rapid and unplanned urbanisation, an ageing population, a sedentary lifestyle and increasing consumption of unhealthy food, especially modern processed foods. Lack of opportunistic screening delays diagnosis while poor access to care and medicines, information asymmetry between doctors and patients, and a paucity of well-trained human resource, impede evidence-based management of diabetes.

Health promotion strategies

Prevention remains central in halting the current pace of the diabetes epidemic. Our focus should be on both individual and policy-level interventions. Health promotion strategies should be aimed at maintaining normal body weight by improving physical activity and following a balanced and healthy diet. Evidence from the [INTERNATIONAL] Diabetes Prevention Program (DPP) shows that small reductions in weight by the moderate-intensity activity of at least 150 minutes per week and reduced fat consumption on most days prevented progression to diabetes by 58 percent among those with prediabetes.

In general, brisk walking for at least 30 minutes a day and following a healthy diet every day which has at least 3-5 servings of locally available and inexpensive fruits and vegetables, and less refined sugar and saturated fat can prevent or postpone the occurrence of diabetes. Doing yoga may also help prevent diabetes; in individuals with diabetes, it may even help them have better control of blood sugar. In addition, every adult above 30 years should be screened for diabetes and hypertension during a planned or unplanned visit to a physician or hospital.

Policy measures also call for reinforcement of health systems. Higher taxation on sugar-sweetened beverages and high-fat junk foods and planning urban infrastructure to promote physical activity have become all the more imperative now.

Diabetes is no longer a disease predominantly affecting the rich and is fast spreading to rural communities. The poor are even more vulnerable. Thus, India has a population where the number of people with diabetes has increased substantially over time and is set to continuously grow; a large number of people disabled by complications, and an equivalent number who are unaware of the condition.

Early diagnosis and prevention is the key to controlling the disease and minimise the risk of disability. In this, we need a multi-pronged approach that involves collaboration among national leaders, clinicians, public health researchers and allied health professionals.

If TSH is 8.10 mU/L and there is significant weight gain, then it is better to start treatment with thyroxine tablets. It is necessary to bring down TSH value to 3 to 4 mU/L, then only all the symptoms are in check. Plus efforts to control weight will also be fruitful only when TSH is as mentioned above. Thanks.

I love the concept of healing with food, food as medicine, or as I like to call it, food pharmacology

Turmeric is a plant of the ginger family that is often used in Indian cuisines. This plant has a long history of medicinal use, and  it’s most studied active ingredient has anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, antibacterial and antiviral activity.

Historically, turmeric has been used to treat pain , stomach and liver ailments , many skin conditions like  sores, eczema and skin rashes. 

Excess inflammation is always present in Hashimoto’s thyroiditis (the suffix "itis" denotes inflammation in the thyroid gland .It is most common cause of Hypothyroidism). Turmeric can be helpful in reducing whole body inflammation

Studies of the effect of curcumin, the active ingredient of turmeric on the thyroid gland and autoimmunity have showed encouraging results.

Curcumin showed tumor inhibiting activity in thyroid cancer.

Curcumin was protective against the genetic damage and side effects induced by radioactive iodine that is sometimes used to treat Graves’ disease (hyperthyroidism)

Curcumin has anti-inflammatory benefits that can be helpful in down-regulating autoimmune conditions

While curcumin can also boost glutathione (an antioxidant that's often depleted in Hashimoto's)

Use of turmeric helped in reducing pain , increase in energy , improvement in mood and an improvement in thyroid antibodies 

Daily intake of curcumin in a typical Indian diet may be anti-inflammatory, however, curcumin is cleared from the body within one hour or so
Combining curcumin with piperine, (found in pepper), extends the life of curcumin in the body, helping it to stick around longer. 

I also made Turmeric Tea (recipe below) twice per day

1 teaspoon of turmeric
1 teaspoon of ginger
pinch of pepper
pinch of cinnamon
juice of one lemon
sweetener to taste (Stevia is Dr.Tanvi’s  top recommendations)
1 cup of hot water

Directions: Put all ingredients in cup of your choice, top of with boiling water and mix!

Thank you for Reading it. I hope it will be helpful to you.

Enlarged fatty liver with diabetes and high alcohol consumption will lead to liver failure sooner than you can imagine. So first, get a handle on the situation by cutting your alcohol consumption. Alcohol is going to stress out your liver and its going to become more and more enlarged and then will shrink itself to cirrhosis. You are 36 years- there is still a lot in your hands to change. Sadly, once liver failure will set in- it will be point of no return.

Use of stimulant decreases the symptoms to a much good effect and if we don't give stimulant medication there will be more of conduct disorder and progress in disease and for side effects we have to monitor the person and advice them accordingly and spine block injection is effective for six months.

rSugars fluctuate depending on the diet,activity, medicine and the stress hormones released in the body. The way your body metabolises your sugar depends on the internal environment .so,it's actually not feasible to check sugars frequently. So,hba1c gives fairly average sugars over a period of 3 months. So,5.5 is good control, u need not worry but follow a balanced diet to me antain the same

Hello firstly is he on medications? in diabetes because of increased sugar in urine more water is lost. This causes dryness in mouth and extra thirst. Only treatment is taking proper drugs and controlling sugar levels. If you inform the fasting and after food levels I can advise.
