Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. The drug given is known as SGLT -2 Inhibitor, which blocks this receptor in the renal tubules and prevents reabsorption of glucose. Because of that excess glucose in blood is excreted or sent out. This is a newer method in treating uncontrolled diabetes. This helps in better control of blood glucose levels. Plus helps in reducing excess weight (in case patient is overweight). Using this drug helps reduce Insulin dosage (if patient is on insulin). There is no load on the kidney. Thanks.

Living Well With Type 2 Diabetes

Living Well With Type 2 Diabetes

Diabetes is a disease that affects the way your body deals with glucose in the blood and the glucose absorbed from the food you ingest. Diabetes is generally of two basic types - Type 1 and Type 2. Apart from these two types, there are other kinds as well including gestational diabetes that some women suffer from during their pregnancy. Type 2 Diabetes is a condition where the cells of the body do not make proper use of the insulin being produced by the pancreas.

Living with this kind of a condition may seem debilitating at first, but here are a few things you can do to make life easier despite Type 2 Diabetes.

  • Weight: Being overweight is one the foremost side effects and sometimes, even cause of Type 2 Diabetes. To make your life easier, you can lose weight so that the complications involved are that much less. Diet and exercise are key for appropriate weight loss. Watch your diet so that you can eliminate high cholesterol as well. This can ensure that unnecessary amount of fat does not stick to your muscles and organs, which in turn will fuel better functioning of the same.
  • Health Care Providers: Being fit with Type 2 Diabetes does not merely mean staying within your normal weight range. It also means taking care of your medication and insulin doses so that you can function in a more normal way. Make your family and friends your support system as you go about life so that people can help you and recognize symptoms when something goes wrong. Be in constant touch with your health care providers and the general physician you see so that they are in the loop and you know exactly what to do in case there is an emergency.
  • Exercise: Being active is a great way to keep your blood sugar level low even as you ensure that you heart is in good condition. This will further eliminate the risk of heart disease, hypertension and high cholesterol. Sweating it out also helps the insulin work in a better manner within your body.
  • Balance: While you may be asked to remove sugar from your diet, there is no need to stay away from proper meals. You can have a fiber rich diet that also has plenty of fruits and vegetables so that you get your due nutrition to maintain a fit body.

Watching your lifestyle is the main thing you need to do if you are suffering from Type 2 Diabetes.

Kindly know me what I should do now to keep myself free from insulin over the period of time in a long run? or is it better to continue with my present medicines throughout my life?

You need to continue your medicines always. Regarding pain and stifness - these are degenerative problems which will be more in diabetic patient. You should check your vitamin -d level. And get your bone density checked. Some time this kind of pain may be due to vitamin -d deficiency. Please take lots of vitamins. You at be having diabetic neuropathy.

Hello lybrate-user. Sorry about your father's eye problem. Diabetes and blood pressure are disorders of the blood vessels. They tend to affect most of the organs in the body including the eyes. In the eye, diabetes/ blood pressure may lead to bursting of blood vessels and subsequent bleeding into the eye. This would in turn reduce the vision of the eye. In some cases, it could be improved by surgery or injection in the eye whereas in other cases, it would be irreversible. Thus, the best guide would be a retina specialist. Take the opinion and follow the advice given by the retina specialist. Feel free to contact me for further assistance. Hope my suggestions helped you. Take care-

lybrate-user, Thanks for the query Your information is very scanty. There is only mention about having diabetes, but no details about blood glucose levels & HbA1c%.Plus no other info on BP, lipid profile etc, so it is difficult to give any opinion why there is choking sensation. Please get a detailed blood check up, plus ECG and then come back. Thanks.
