Hello sir, gaining weight while controlling your blood sugar can be difficult, you have to recognize which foods affect your blood sugar and which do not. For weight gain that also allows consistent blood sugar control, add more healthy fats to your diet . include non starchy carbs in your food like broccoli, cabbage, green veggies, egg plant. Add healthy calories to your diet, include healthy fats like avocado, olives, walnuts, almonds, seeds like flaxseeds,.

Most time (>90%) abortion occurs because child is not formed well. That can not be found with any test or can not be prevented. In today's practice, torch test is not done, as it does not carry any value. You have to wait for another 5 months before you start seeking any medical help. All these tests, does not help patients, only thing it does is, it makes doctor rich.

It is not good to have uncontrolled diabetes and blood pressure. It is better to have medicines and keep them well under control. Please start medications at the earliest. If uncontrolled, these disorders may lead to complications.

Normal values are fasting 70 to 110 and after food 2 hours 70 to 140 mg/dl. But mind it these are statistical and decided by governments and studies show that even below these levels a person may suffer changes like retinopathy. Glucometer test is enough.

Hello you have hypothyroidism, hence only treatment is taking thyroxine. Taking that hormone is essential during pregnancy. Without that the fetus will be affected badly. There will be no harm to the baby

What Are The Common Causes And Symptoms Of Diabetes?

What Are The Common Causes And Symptoms Of Diabetes?

The food we eat contains energy which is stored as glucose in the body. This glucose is then converted into back into energy with the help of a hormone called insulin. A lack of insulin in the body or an inability to use the insulin is known as diabetes. There are two types of diabetes mellitus; type 1 and type 2. These diseases cannot be cured but with medication, correct nutrition and weight management, they can be controlled so as to not affect your quality of life.

Type 1 diabetes is a lifelong condition and usually, begins in childhood. This is an autoimmune condition and makes the pancreas stop producing insulin. Some probable causes of type 1 diabetes are:

  1. Family history of diabetes

  2. Pancreatic diseases

  3. Other infections and diseases that can affect the pancreas.

Between the two, type 2 diabetes is more common. Type 2 diabetes is also known as insulin resistance and can affect a person at any stage in life. However, it is more common amongst men and women above the age of 45. Ethnicity also plays an important role here with African Americans, Latino Americans, Asian Americans and Hispanic people being more vulnerable to this disease. In this case, the body does produce insulin but either this amount is insufficient or the body is resistant to the insulin. Some factors that can trigger this condition are:

  1. Obesity

  2. High blood pressure

  3. Sedentary lifestyle

  4. Polycystic ovary syndrome

  5. Family history of diabetes

  6. Low levels of good cholesterol and high levels of triglycerides

  7. Presence of cells that are resistant to insulin

  8. Prediabetes or glucose intolerance

The most common symptoms of type 1 and type 2 diabetes are:

  1. Increased urination

  2. Excessive thirst and increased appetite

  3. Weight loss

  4. Fatigue

  5. Wounds that are slow to heal

  6. Yeast infections

  7. Numbness and tingling sensations in the toes

  8. Dry skin

  9. Blurred vision

  10. Nausea and vomiting

Another common type of diabetes is known as gestational diabetes Gestational diabetes affects pregnant women. It is caused by the over or under production of insulin by the placenta. Gestational diabetes can affect the health and growth of the baby is not treated in time. This condition usually resolves itself after the baby is delivered but it can put the mother at an increased risk of suffering from type 2 diabetes. Some factors that can trigger this condition are:

  1. Obesity

  2. Glucose intolerance

  3. Family history of diabetes

  4. Pregnancy after the age of 30 

    If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an endocrinologist.

I agree with him. Why? what doubt do you have? in fact, your hba1c is suggesting that you have had far more higher sugar levels since 3 months than what you are mentioning in your reports. Probably, 300 or so.

Hello lybrate-user taking glycophage (metformin) even wen your blood sugar levels are normal is not mandatory. If you have a family history of diabetes or you r over weight, or habit of smoking and alcohol, you need to work out on your diet n activity. Increase your daily walks n avoid lifts. Avoid alcohol, no-veg, fried food, rice. You can start with glycophage if risk factors r there. Regards.

It keeps on changing. Why.
Mr. Lybrate-user, fasting or pp blood glucose levels depend on the intake of food and ability of insulin to help glucose utilisation by cells. So levels will vary depending on our daily food intake. If one eats more, level will go up. 140 mg is high, ideally it should be around 100 mg. Levels may also change if treatment is not adequate. Thanks.
