When 24-year-old Erin learned that she had type 2 diabetes she simply could not believe it was true. This could never happen to her, she felt. The diagnosis must be wrong. During the next few weeks Erin was prescribed appropriate treatment, and given advice on self-managing her condition, to control symptoms and reduce the risk of long-term problems. But before too long it became clear that Erin was continuing to suffer symptoms. Her diabetes was clearly not under control.

Erin was eventually referred to our clinic, where we discovered why the standard therapeutic approach was not working for her. Deep down, she still did not believe that she had diabetes. When faced with pressures in her daily life – Erin had recently moved to another country to take up a demanding job – she would feel overwhelmed and simply stop managing her diabetes, which seemed much less important than the immediate issues facing her. We helped Erin to recognize and understand this pattern of behavior, and to learn to cope with her disease. She has now finally accepted that she has diabetes, and understands clearly that she can benefit by taking responsibility for her treatment, complying with instructions and adopting a healthy lifestyle.

Erin's case is by no means unique. Studies suggest that less than 50 percent of patients with a chronic disease follow their management plans correctly, for a wide variety of reasons. Many people with diabetes, for example, do not adhere to their prescribed diet or take their prescribed medication, resulting in poor metabolic control and a high risk of developing long-term complications.


Two major external factors influence the course of diabetes in an individual patient. Healthcare professionals control one of these when they establish a management plan, involving specific treatments, lifestyle modifications and regular assessment. The other factor, controlled by patients, is their ability to self-manage the disease, adapting the plan according to daily circumstances.

Few people – if any – will have this ability when diagnosed, and it is the responsibility of health professionals to help patients develop the necessary knowledge and skills. Patient education is widely recognized as vital for effective long-term care. However, its implementation is often inadequate, and too often it involves little more than putting information in front of the patient. Key issues for the patient, such as understanding the implications of the disease and learning how to incorporate its management into their day-to-day life, are sometimes not addressed.

My father is diabetic since last 30 years & high blood pressure issue since last 20 years. Now from last 3-4 months he is suffering from kidney infection s.creatinine not going below 2.60. Please advise what kind of treatment we should follow to control s.creatinine.

M.D. Internal Medicine
Endocrinologist, Mumbai
Usually when kidney gets affected one needs to find out the cause- whether it is due to diabetes ,or infection, kidney stone or drugs or any other cause. Detailed renal function with ultra sonography of abdomen and pelvis is recommended. Ophthalmic evaluation to rule out diabetic retinopathy will be helpful in diagnosing whether renal involvement is because of uncontrolled diabetes or not. If kidney infection is the cause of increasing S. Creatinine then kidney friendly antibiotics have to be given as per culture reports. It is always safer and better to control blood sugars with insulin therapy as many anti diabetic drugs can not be continued when S. Creatinine is above 1.5 mg.

Hello Doctor I am 48 years old. I have BP 130/90 so I am using mild dose tablets only (ie) 2.5 mg. Amlip. But two weeks back I got my BP check up on 25/03/17 It was 140/90. The doctor asked me to take 5 mg daily. He is BHMS. From that day onwards I was taking 5 mg. Suddenly yesterday I saw my legs got swelled as in pregnancy time. I don't know why? Suggest me and clarify.

M.D. Internal Medicine
Endocrinologist, Mumbai
Some times Amlip can cause leg odema. You can go back to your earlier 2.5 mg dosage and see BP pattern. If swelling disappears then continue T. Amlip and we can add some other small dose anti HT depending upon BP if required and later on discontinue T. Amlip. If leg swelling does not disappear after reducing T. Amlip then you may need to do blood and urine test like CBC, urine R, screat, S. Protein ,TSH to rule out kidney, thyroid or anemia problem.

Dear doctors. Can a pridibatic person drink a cup of red wine once a week. Is glucerna. Shake good for pridibatic person. please suggest coz I want to gain about 15 pounds more that I lost recently after getting diagnosed as pridibatic. please suggest. Thanx.

M.D. Internal Medicine
Endocrinologist, Mumbai
Prediabetes is condition when your Hba1C is more than 5.7 but less than 6.4% .Normally you should not have weight loss in this condition but if you have you have to look for other medical conditions like, thyroid dysfunction, tuberculosis. You can drink small quantity of red wine once a week. Glucerna shake can be taken by prediabetic but if you already have weight loss then first diagnose the cause reason for same with help of doctors.

Is it ok if we cut on sugar completely. My glucose level fasting was 91 I do not take sugar any more as my mom is a diabetic and I am scared about the hereditary.

M.D. Internal Medicine
Endocrinologist, Mumbai
Post lunch less than 140 mg and hba1c less than 5.7 % rules out diabetes. Hba1c between 5.7 % and less than 6.4% confirms prediabetes and hba1cmore than 6.4 confirms diabetes. Low fat, low carbohydrate, high protein, high fiber diet with regular 45 minuets walking/exercise/sports activity may help preventing diabetes. Avoid direct sugar or jeggary in day to day diet.

I'm 50 years old woman. I'm suffering from gastric trouble. Even little food makes me feel full. Sometimes I have left hand pain also. Always some disturbance and irritability in stomach. Is that good to use triphala in this condition. Will it increase gas and bloating? I have 140 blood sugar level? Will it increase chances of diabetes? I have hypothyroidism also. Suggest me the uses of triphala, a ayurvedic medicine. Can I take that?

M.D. Internal Medicine
Endocrinologist, Mumbai
Cold milk or butter milk or anta- acids may help in relieving acidity. But some times at the age of 50 it is essential to rule out cardiac pain with ecg and if doubt with stress test you may need proper bsf/pp/hba1c test to rule out diabetes. Some patients may require ogd scopy.

Doctor say that insulin do not leave when is life if diabetes 350 to 500 not a proper position low or high in one hour low next hour high doctor not give a proper solution he says am not understand what is this?

M.D. Internal Medicine
Endocrinologist, Mumbai
If you have blood sugars in the range of 350-500 then you should not leave insulin injections. In fact your insulin dosage or type of insulin needs to be changed. Some times oral diabetic drugs can also be added. Some times diet/exercise failure /stress/infection/ thyroid dysfunction in the body does not allow your sugars to come under control.

I have a problem in my low level of hemoglobin. It was just only 6 gms. Please help to increase it. What should I do and also increase my diabetes problem. Today we have take first time test for FBS. IT COMES 130 fasting sugar.

M.D. Internal Medicine
Endocrinologist, Mumbai
Fasting sugar more than 126 mg confirms you have diabetes. Most common causes anemia is nutritional deficiencies -iron, b12, folic acid group of vitamins supplements may help. In some group of patients internal bleeding from piles or chronic ulcers/ varices are cause of anemia some families have known to have genetic variants hemoglobinopathies /traits positive. If you get your anemia profile done then probably you can get clear picture of type of anemia and treatment required for the same. You should also get your post lunch sugar -so that you can control your diabetes with dietary changes initially.

My friend has diabetes, and recently he has lost a lot of weight. I think he looks too think and am concerned about his health. Is this type of weight loss normal for a diabetic?

M.D. Internal Medicine
Endocrinologist, Mumbai
Weight loss in diabetes usually signifies uncontrolled diabetes. He probably needs to change/or adjust his anti diabetic medicine dosages he may improve faster with short course of insulin therapy (if he is not taking). Some times associated illness like hyperthyroidism, tuberculosis, hiv, cancer could also be responsible for weight loss. He may need investigation for same if no improvement in weight after diabetes control. He may improve faster if changes his diet to high protein, nutritionally rich diet if his all other reports are normal and he can improve to normal weight suitable for his height.
