Mr. Lybrate-user, if you have diabetes mellitus, then, it is essential to start appropriate treatment. Drugs will depend on the severity of sugar levels and type of diabetes. In addition you will have to take a balanced and restricted diet, that provides exact calories based on your ideal body weight, extent of daily exercise and sugar levels. Plus daily exercise of at least 1 hour. Plus you have to avoid sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries and sweetened aerated drinks. Consume more of green leafy vegetables, salads and permitted fruits about 100 ga day. Avoid alcohol and and smoking.

Dos And Don'ts For Diabetics

MBBS
General Physician, Mumbai
Dos And Don'ts For Diabetics

Diabetes is a disease which makes a person pay a greater amount of attention to himself or herself and his/her lifestyle habits. In order to fight diabetes successfully, some dos and don’ts really need to be followed. Let’s look at a few of them.

It is very important to make sure that a diabetic patient eats food at regular intervals. The risk of not following this is that the sugar level in the blood will drop, which in turn, will lead to a case of low blood sugar. This condition is known as hypoglycemia. This is especially true when it comes to people who have diabetes and are on heavy medication to keep it under control.

Carbohydrates are part and parcel of a balanced diet. Having said that, it is important to keep an eye on the type of carbohydrates which are being consumed. What this means is that simple carbohydrates should make way in the diet of a diabetic person rather than complex carbohydrates. As such, rice, white pasta and similar items should be replaced in the diet with oats and wheat. This can go a long way in helping you fight diabetes.

Exercise is pretty much the closest thing that has been found to the fabled elixir of life! There are plenty of benefits of doing a little bit of exercise on a consistent and daily basis. From cutting the risk of cancer to preserving the youth of the brain for as long as possible, exercise helps the cause.

Fat loss is yet another recommended way to keep a check on diabetes and exercise is the best way to go about it! When it comes to diabetes, patients are often advised to go for regular walks as it helps our body in using insulin, reduces glucose levels and cuts down on a person’s stress.

So, about an hour of walking, at least five days a week can really go a long way in helping a person who has diabetes.

Smoking is a strict no-no if a person is diagnosed with diabetes, as diabetic patients have higher chances of strokes and heart ailments. Also if you are addicted or habituated in drinking soft drinks, sports drinks or any other beverages which are high in sugar, it’s time to say goodbye to them, once you are diagnosed with diabetes.

The adherence to a strict regimen is great, but the usefulness is lowered if a person has binge days where the plan is not stuck to. While breaks from a diet are required; they should be reasonable and as infrequent as possible.

It is unlikely that Amaryl alone will help you control your diabetes. You may increase the dose of Amaryl to 2mg twice daily along with Metformin 500 mg twice daily. After 2-3 weeks, check your blood sugar levels & review. You can increase Metformin upto 1000 mg twice daily. Beware of Hypoglycemia when on Amaryl.

What is the main reason s of adiabatic how can control this. Any tips control diabetic.
Mr Jiju, Diabetes Mellitus is a metabolic disease. Occurs due to either deficiency of Insulin hormone secreted by Islets of Langerhans in Pancreas, or resistance to it's action or both. In T1 DM there is complete lack or absence of Insulin. This causes derangement in carbohydrate, protein and fat metabolism. Specifically seen by increased blood glucose levels. Later it affects every single system in the body causing serious damage. T2 DM even though familial, is still preventable disease, if one follows healthy life style like regular exercise, proper diet, and maintains normal weight.

For diabetic patients sugar may flactuate. Then common problems are head moving head suddenly or abnormalities of brain functiong due to low sugar level in blood & circulations in central nervous systems. So do not worry, take medications, light walking, littile dynamic life stlesbut be aware of every time.

What Can Cause Infertility in Women

MBBS, MS - Obstetrics and Gynaecology
Gynaecologist, Noida
What Can Cause Infertility in Women

Female infertility affects nearly 40 million women world over, as per medical studies. If the female patient is not able to conceive after trying for a period of over six months without the use of any protection or contraception, there are chances that she may be suffering from infertility. This condition must be checked and treated at the earliest. Read on to know more about the various causes behind female infertility.

  1. Fallopian Tubes: When the fallopian tubes undergo any kind of damage, it may lead to infertility for the woman in question. These tubes are used by the eggs as they travel from the ovaries to the uterus. The eggs meet the sperm in order for the baby to be conceived and to develop. Pelvic infections and pelvic surgery can cause scarring and bleeding which can stop the sperm and the egg from meeting. This scarring may also come about as a result of endometriosis.
  2. Hormonal Issues: There are a variety of hormones at play within one's body at any given point of time, and a balance of these hormones is absolutely essential for the various functions of the body to be carried out in a normal manner. When the body does not go through proper hormonal changes that are required for the release of the egg, this can prevent the pregnancy from happening. This can also lead to a thickening of the uterine lining which can stop the egg from travelling from the ovaries.
  3. Cervical Problems: The cervix is one of the most important parts of the female reproductive system. It is a passage that can be found at the lower end of the womb. When there is a condition that may affect the cervix of the female patient, it can also prevent the sperm from travelling through the cervical canal in order to reach the egg. This comes about as a symptom of a cervical problem.
  4. Uterine Problem: One may develop polyps or fibroids within the uterus, thus giving rise to difficulties when it comes to getting pregnant. These growths can usually be found when there are too many cells thriving in the endometrium, which is basically the lining of the uterus.
  5. Unexplained Reasons: There are a number of 'unexplained' reasons that can prevent pregnancy. These reasons plague almost 20% of the couples who are suffering from infertility or the inability to conceive a baby.
  6. Tests: While the diagnosis of the condition can be done with the help of an HSG test using an ultrasound, the doctor can also use this method to check for fallopian tube blockages. A laparoscopy may also be used for diagnosis.

If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a specilized gynaecologist and ask a free question.

Thanks
Preet.
lybrate-user, Hypothyroidism if not well controlled with proper dosage of Thyroxine is bound to affect menstrual cycle and cause weight gain. Only option is to see that adequate dose of thyroxine is taken and TSH is maintained between 3 to 4 mU/L, then only all the symptoms will be in control and efforts to reduce weight also are likely to be successful. Hence, make sure that TSH levels are as mentioned. Thanks.

Mr. Lybrate-user, if you have confirmed diabetes then appropriate treatment with anti diabetes drugs is needed. If diabetes is in control then fasting sugar should be closer 100 mg, pp 150 to 160 mg & hba1c should be <6.8%. If these levels are not achieved then you are inviting severe long term complications of diabetes. Taking milk is good but sugar control and overall diet restrictions must be adhered tp.

Mr. Lybrate-user, pain in the legs, and back can be due to inactivity, stiffness or she may have joint related problems. First thing is her diabetes should be in good control, meaning fasting sugar around 100 mg, pp 150 to 160 mg and hba1c% <7. She should get her uric acid levels checked, as high uric acid level can lead to joint pains. It is better if she does regular exercises to strngthen the muscle and ligaments. Bending and stretching exercises can be helpful. Also check her b12 and vitamin d levels. Occasional pain killers may be used.

Gestational Diabetes - How It Can Be Treated?

MD - Diabetology, MBBS
Diabetologist, Surat
Gestational Diabetes - How It Can Be Treated?

Women tend to develop high levels of blood sugar during their pregnancy (especially within the 24th and 28th weeks), irrespective of whether they already had suffered from diabetes prior to their pregnancy. However, gestational diabetes, if not taken proper care of, might escalate the risks of developing diabetes in the near future for both the mother and the child, accompanied by complications in pregnancy or labor. Gestational diabetes is usually characterized by mild symptoms such as excessive urge to urinate, excessive thirst, blurred vision and fatigue.

Causes:
Insulin, a hormone produced by the pancreas, allows for the utilization of the glucose for energy. The food consumed is broken down by the digestive tract of the body, converting carbohydrates into glucose before releasing it into the bloodstream. The glucose is then absorbed by the cells to be used as an energy source. Now, at the time of pregnancy, the placenta (organ nourishing the fetus) connecting the baby to the blood supply also produces various other hormones in high levels, for instance, estrogen and human placental lactogen. Most of these hinder the normal functioning of insulin in the cells, hence raising the blood sugar count. With subsequent growth of the baby, the placenta keeps on producing more amounts of such insulin resistant hormones to an extent that they are capable of meddling with the development of the baby.

Treatment:
1. Monitoring the blood sugar count at least four to five times a day and keeping it under control might help to ease the complication.
2. A healthy diet consisting of whole grains, vegetables and fruits in the right proportion and limiting sugar or other highly refined carbs meets the nutrition and fiber requirement of the body. Guard against additional weight gain during pregnancy as that hampers the entire process.
3. Exercise or regular physical activities help to normalize blood sugar level by boosting glucose absorption in the cells. Furthermore, exercises also enhance the sensitivity of the cells towards insulin. This means that only a little amount of insulin production by your body would be enough for the transportation of sugar.
4. Medication, If exercise and diet fall inadequate, insulin injections are often administered to control blood sugar count.
5. Keeping the baby under close observation with the help of repeated ultrasound and other tests to record its growth and development is an essential part of the treatment plan. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a gynaecologist.

You have a bmi of 27.73 kgs/m2, signifying over weight. The efforts to reduce weight will be successful if your tsh levels are between 3 to 4 milli units. So please see that first. Because unless hypothyroidism is fully controlled, weight reduction is not going to happen. Plus you have to take a restricted diet that provides calories based on ideal body weight (60 kgs), extent of daily exercise. You have to do a workout of at least 1 hour a day. Avoid too many carbs, sweets, and increase intake of proteins and low fat foods. That will help. Thanks for the question.

Mr. lybrate-user, It is good to know that you are having good blood glucose control. It is very important to maintain blood glucose level in the following fashion: FBS closer to 100 mg, PP 150 to 160 mg & HbA1c% <6.8, then one can prevent or postpone the long term complications of diabetes. Since you have been having diabetes for over 12 years it is better to get your eyes checked to rule out any involvement of retina, as diabetes tends to affect retinal blood vessels. Thanks.
