My friend have diabetes problem so any medicine he should take?
Diabetes affects all organs in the body ? Eyes, kidneys, nerves, reproductive system all are affected, In fact, from toe to hair. For diabetic control, patient should be under proper guidance for regular follow up and advice. It 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), & HbA1C (inform me) 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. There are different diet plans of varying calories for each person depending on his activity & lifestyle.

What complications are associated with diabetes?

Diabetes is a serious disorder which happens when your body has an unreasonably high level of blood sugar, which further leads to harmful effects. Diabetes has a wide variety of complications associated with it, and they start to build up slowly and gradually. Some of the common complications are:

Retinopathy

In simple words, diabetes leads to eye damage by making the eye exposed and prone to severe eye disorders like cataracts and glaucoma. If you have retinopathy, then you may also have face the consequence loss of vision or permanent blindness.

Skin conditions

During diabetes, your skin health is bound to degrade to a large extent. Your skin will become thin in texture and more prone to cuts and breakages due to internal skin cell damage. Thus, the skin gets more exposed to the bacterial and viral infections and its healing process also slows down as the cell division takes longer than usual.

Nephropathy

Nephropathy refers to kidney damage which is caused due to diabetes. The kidneys act as a filter system to the body and they filter out waste materials from the blood. Diabetes causes damage to the blood vessels of the kidneys which may further result in serious kidney disorders and may increase the risks of a sudden kidney failure.

Cardiovascular diseases

This means that if you are having excessive diabetes, then you are at a risk of having a major heart attack or a heart stroke. Additionally, increased blood sugar levels also lead to other heart-related diseases like chest pain, narrowing of arteries etc.

Neuropathy

It is a complication related to the nervous system of your body. The complication generally occurs in the legs as there is a numbness, burning or tingling sensation in the legs. This happens due to the extra sugar in the body, which damages the walls of the blood vessels. In the worst case scenario, you can lose sensation in the legs.

However, it is always desirable that you go and visit a doctor if the conditions persist for a longer time. Additionally, you can also depend upon some domestic care measures to bring your blood sugar levels under control.

Mr. Lybrate-user, to have a successful pregnancy hypothyroidism has to be under complete control, meaning tsh levels should come down to below 2 milli units / ml. The guidelines say that for conception to occur tsh shouldbe between 0.3 to 2.5 milli units and through out pregnancy also the levels have to be maintained this range for proper fetal development and successful out come of the pregnancy. High tsh levels conception will not take place, fetal development is severely affected, premature birth may take place or miscarriage may occur. Therefor you have to first get the tsh level down to <2 milli units.

Mr Srinivasa Rao, The very fact that sugar (blood glucose) level is going out of control, is a sign of ill health. Because persistent hyperglycemia affects every single vital organ in the body like eyes (retina), small & large blood vessels, kidney, heart, lower limbs, peripheral nerves and lipid metabolism etc. leading to serious long term complications. So my suggestion is please see that blood glucose level is brought under a strict control. There is no other option. Otherwise, suddenly some complication may come up without warning. Thanks.

Swelling feet (oedema) happens because your body is holding on to more fluid than usual. The increased pressure in your leg veins, and pressure from your growing baby on the big veins in your groin, add to the problem. Swelling is common. About half of all pregnant women experience it around their ankles, particularly in the last few months of pregnancy. You may find your fingers, face and lower back become swollen too. The swelling in your legs usually gets worse towards the end of the day, especially if you're on your feet a lot. Gravity makes fluid collect at the lowest point in your body. Hot weather and being tired can also make swelling worse. Follow these tips to get relief 1. While sleeping keep your legs above hip level, you can keep some pillows below your legs 2. Eat a balanced diet with more vegetables, fruits, drink plenty of water 3. Sleep (7-8 hrs) 4. Go for regular exercise 5. Don't stand for long time go for constitutional homoeopathic treatment, since homoeopathic medicines act best during pregnancy, it will not only solve your basic issues but will make your baby also more healthy and immune.
