Mr. Lybrate-user. You are weighing more for your age and height and may be the reason for early onset of diabetes at an age of 24. Obesity causes insulin resistance, so you need to concentrate more on your weight reduction with some physical activity. In allopathy you need to take meds to control diabetes. To bring sugar levels to normal. 2/3of the sugar levels should be controlled by physical activity and for remaining 1/3 you need to take medication. This usually lessens the long term complications of the diabetes, reduced dose of the drugs and prevent early drug resistance. You need regular physician's care for your present health status. Contact if need further assistance.

Can damage to the organs done because of type 1 dm reversible? like high creatinine, diabetic retinopathy, diabetic nephropathy etc?

Diabetes is not a health concern but a condition where sugar in the blood does not allow the absorption of many nutrients, as a result, many other concerns take place. If you want results then you would have to correct the diet, deal with the deficiencies, and make a healthy diet plan. You can contact separately.

A tsh of 9.38 is high and will make you feel pretty ill but I wouldn't say it is dangerously high so don't worry about it too much there are people who are diagnosed when their tsh is 100 and I've even seen someone post with a tsh of 240. You will be able to lose the weight again once your treatment is optimal but it will be hard work like any diet and exercise routine is. You will have to find a diet that works for you as everyone is different and you may find that the diet that worked in the past doesn't anylonger. Ayurved panchkarm treatment also helpful to reduce loose weight. Arogyavardhini vati -medohar gugglu - dashmool kwath - kanchnar gugglu also helpful.

Hi My height is 5.7 inches and my weight is 107kgs. Over weight. Some one advised to check my thyroid levels. T3 and T4 are normal but TSH is <0.01. I tried to test again, report show the same. Can I know more about this.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Mr. Lybrate-user, thyroid report is fine, except that tsh is a bit low. But that does not appear to be the cause of tour being over weight. In fact you are having grade 2 obesity with a bmi of 36.33 kg/m2 (normal <23 kg/m2). Your ideal body weight should be 70 kgs. This needs to taken care, by regular exercise and diet control it is better if you join a gym, and start exercise under the guidance of a qualified instructor, plus regulate the diet. Aim at reduction of 5 to 8 kg of present weight. That will give a considerable relief.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. TSH 13.39 mU/L is a clear indication of having hypothyroidism. This condition needs to be treated with regular supplementation of levothyroxine that too for lifetime. Thanks.

I am a type 2 diabetic and want to have rice with vegetables in both meals is this ok me?
Hello Sir, I would advise if can substitute atleast one meal with chapatis/roti/phulka etc instead of consuming rice both the times. You can even take millets like Ragi, bajra, oats , quinoa etc. Use whole grains. These all release glucose in your blood slowly rather than the quick release of glucose seen as with white rice. If you unable to change your dietary habits away from rice, try if you can take brown rice/red rice/wild rice instead of white rice. Take plenty of vegetables, atleast half of your plate should be of vegetables. Avoid potatoes, colocasia, yam. You can take carrots, green peas, sweet corn, beet root 1-2 times/week,Rest all vegetables including leafy vegetables are perfectly fine to be taken everyday. Hope this has helped you Thank you

Juices are not good for the diabetic patients as they contain only sugar in form of fructose, they do not contain any fibre. Fruits should be eaten eaten instead of juices but that also be in limited quantity. Over intake of any thing can increase the blood sugar level. All diabetic patients should have complex carbohydrates. so you must consult privately so that you can get a proper diet chart according to the patient need.

Increase thirst, increased frequency of urination are some initial symptoms of diabetes but it can vary from being completely asymptomatic to non specific symptoms like weakness, loss of weight, tingling in feet, dry mouth, blurry vision, burning during urination. You need to follow a healthy lifestyle to prevent such metabolic diseases. Type 1 usually occurs at younger age due to insulin deficiency and treated with insulin injections. It can't be cured completely but you can keep it controlled by taking these precautions.

Obesity - Can It Lead to Diabetes?

MBBS, CCEBDM
Diabetologist, Bangalore
Obesity - Can It Lead to Diabetes?

Diabetes is a complex group of diseases with a variety of causes. People with diabetes have high blood glucose, also called high blood sugar or hyperglycemia.

Diabetes is a disorder of metabolism, the way the body uses digested food for energy. The digestive tract breaks down carbohydrates, sugars and starches found in many foods, into glucose, a form of sugar that enters the bloodstream. Diabetes develops when the body doesn't make enough insulin or is not able to use insulin effectively, or both.

The two main types of diabetes are:

Type 1 Diabetes: Type 1 diabetes typically occurs in children and young adults, though it can appear at any age. In the past, type 1 diabetes was called juvenile diabetes or insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus.

Heredity plays an important part in determining who is likely to develop type 1 diabetes. Genes are passed down from biological parent to child.

Type 2 Diabetes: Type 2 diabetes develops most often in middle-aged and older people who are also overweight or obese. The disease, once rare in youth, is becoming more common in overweight and obese children and adolescents. Type 2 diabetes is caused by a combination of factors, including insulin resistance, a condition in which the body's muscle, fat, and liver cells do not use insulin effectively.

Physical Inactivity, Obesity, and Diabetes: Physical inactivity and obesity are strongly associated with the development of type 2 diabetes. People who are genetically susceptible to type 2 diabetes are more vulnerable when these risk factors are present. About 80 percent of people with type 2 diabetes are overweight or obese.

An imbalance between caloric intake and physical activity can lead to obesity, which causes insulin resistance and is common in people with type 2 diabetes. Central obesity, in which a person has excess abdominal fat, is a major risk factor not only for insulin resistance and type 2 diabetes but also for heart and blood vessel disease, also called cardiovascular diseases (CVD). This excess belly fat produces hormones and other substances that can cause harmful, chronic effects in the body such as damage to blood vessels.

So, measuring your waist is a quick way of assessing your diabetes risk. This is a measure of abdominal obesity, which is a particularly high-risk form of obesity. Women have a higher risk of developing type 2 diabetes if their waist measures 80cm (31.5 inches) or more. Asian men with a waist size of 89cm (35 inches) or more have a higher risk, as do white or black men with a waist size of 94cm (37 inches) or more.

Simple Steps to Lower Your Risk: Making a few lifestyle changes can dramatically lower the chances of developing type 2 diabetes. The same changes can also lower the chances of developing heart disease and other life taking cancers.

  1. Control Your Weight: Being overweight increases the chances of developing type 2 diabetes seven-fold. Being obese makes you 20 to 40 times more likely to develop diabetes than someone with a healthy weight. Losing weight can help if your weight is above the healthy-weight range. Check your BMI. Losing 7 to 10 percent of your current weight can cut your chances of developing type 2 diabetes in half.
  2. Get Moving and Turn Off the Television: Inactivity promotes type 2 diabetes. Working your muscles more often and making them work harder improves their ability to use insulin and absorb glucose. This puts less stress on your insulin-making cells.
  3. Tune Up Your Diet: Four dietary changes can have a big impact on the risk of type 2 diabetes-

Choose whole grains and wholegrain products over highly processed carbohydrates.

  • Skip the sugary drinks, and choose water, coffee, or tea instead.
  • Choose good fats instead of bad fats.
  • Limit red meat and avoid processed meat; choose nuts, whole grains, poultry, or fish instead.

If you are already suffering from diabetes, then do take a walk everyday and adopt healthy eating habits. Along with that relieve your stress and take proper doses of insulin or medications as prescribed by your doctor. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor.

I am aged 52 and I am diagnosed with hypothyroidism 14 years back. Using Eltroxin 125 mg. Some suggest it should be taken empty stomach while some other say it can be taken even after having coffee like beverages but not after breakfast. What is correct? Further I don't find much difference in the medication. I find same even if I don't use medicine for months. What is the actual consequences of hypothyroidism. Does it affect on behavior any way as some opine. I find myself normal and work strenuously. I feel Whatever tiredness or intolerance I exhibit is due to work pressure, while many others don't take that much responsibility and pain and stay cool. Irregularities and poor work environment also frustrates me. Though I will give no let up in my performance, I exhibit my frustration. Which people don't like. Is it due to hypothyroidism or genuine?

Thyroid medications should always be taken empty stomach, atleast 45 min to 1 hour before any food as it is a highly sensitive medicine. No doubts or confusion regarding this. You should preiodically monitor your TSH which should be kept in normal range. Untreated hypothyroidism can cause fluid retention in body, weakness fatigue cholesterol problems and even cardiac problems.
