Understand Your Risk for Diabetes!

Understand Your Risk for Diabetes!

Type 1 diabetes is commonly referred to as juvenile diabetes and is mostly witnessed among young people. It can also occur in adults. In this condition, the body doesn’t produce enough insulin or completely stops producing insulin. The immune system, which saves the body from foreign microbes, attacks the cells that are responsible for producing insulin. The treatment methods include taking insulin shots, oral insulin intake, taking healthy diet, increased physical activity and controlling blood pressure and cholesterol levels.

Type 2 diabetes is a condition wherein the body refuses to use insulin in order to carry glucose to each and every cell of the body. The pancreas try to produce more insulin in order to counter the condition but soon give up due to an increased blood pressure. The treatment plan includes medication, making lifestyle changes, and controlling blood-sugar and cholesterol levels.

Gestational diabetes is observed in many pregnant women. The hormones produced during pregnancy can block insulin to be used by the body. While insulin resistance is common during pregnancy, failure of the pancreas to fill in the additional insulin in the body can result in gestational diabetes. Women who are overweight are more likely to develop this condition. Although gestational diabetes goes automatically after the baby is born, it often recurs in the form of type 2 diabetes in a later stage of life.

Risk factors for diabetes

  1. Weight: Being overweight is a primary risk factor for diabetes. An increased amount of adipose tissue increases the risk of insulin resistance by the body. It is therefore essential to shed as much weight as one can to avoid diabetes.
  2. Inactivity: Immobility increases the risk of diabetes in a person. It stacks up glucose in the body, making it difficult for the body to use glucose and convert it into energy. A daily routine which is devoid of physical activity ensures fat storage in the body, which can turn into type 2 diabetes.
  3. Family history: Diabetes, especially type 2, is closely linked with family history. If a person has diabetes, it is very likely that his immediate family or extended family has a history of diabetes.
  4. Ethnicity: African-Americans, people from the Indian subcontinent, Latinos, etc., are more likely to suffer from diabetes compared to their American or European counterparts. Lifestyle and eating habits are the major reasons for diabetes in these races.
  5. Age: Age has a direct correlation with diabetes. The age group of 45–65 is considered to be more diabetes-prone. Inactivity, immobility, and an increase of sugar intake are some of the primary reasons for developing diabetes in this age group.

Surgery For Diabetic Foot - What All Should You Know

Surgery For Diabetic Foot - What All Should You Know

Surgery is an art and surgeons are artists. It is a grueling process and requires extreme dexterity and quite a bit of courage. It is a process where specialized tools are used to remove unwanted tissues, infections or treat an injury or to reshape the human body.

A surgeon is a person who executes the process of surgery. A surgery team is made for these operations which is highly delicate and life risking task. Surgeon’s have their own assistants who assits or helps with the surgical equipments as instructed by the surgeon.

Foot infections are a very common problem in diabetic people. A very miniscule cut can turn into an untreatable infection and can claim a person’s life. A diabetic person loses the ability to repair and thus  the body is unable to repair itself. Prompt medical actions must be taken to treat the affected person and it is an extremely delicate procedure.

TYPES OF SURGERIESBASED ON TIME

  1. BASED ON PURPOSE
  2. TYPE OF PROCEDURE
  3. BY BODY PART
  4. BY EQUIPMENTS USED

Prevention

There are certain prevention methods of diabetic foot like regulating glucose levels, identification of the problem, proper self-care and self-examination. Doing routine examination of the foot is a necessary step and one should apprise one’s doctor of any development of any kind of infections. Wearing proper footwear is another essential.

Wearing improper footwear that cause repeated trauma to the foot may cause infections. The aim of a foot surgery is to control the infection without losing the limb. The skilled and able surgeons do this by removing the pus, removing every affected tissue and by making a healthy wound bed. In the whole process one should keep in mind the functionality of the affected foot. Untreated infections may create pressure points and trigger the infection again.

Classifications of foot infections

  1. A depth of the infection
  2. The severity of the infection
  3. The amount of tissue involved
  4. The anatomic site affected
  5. The causative factors

The treatment of the infections includes detection of the infection and it is considered an infection if the following symptoms are present

Symptoms

Infections may give rise to recalcitrant hyperglycemia and malaise, but systemic inflammatory manifestations may be absent. Patients with a serious conditions, may have an elevated erythrocyte-sedimentation rate or C-reactive protein level. With deep infections bone involvement is a concern. One study suggested that in the presence of an infection, a high specificity and positive predictive value for osteitis when the bone is felt with a sterile metal probe.

Clinical, radiological, and/or scintigraphic signs compatible with osteitis may lead to suspicion, but MRI is the imaging procedure of choice for classifying osteomyelitis from other conditions, like neuroarthropathy. A  study showed that on MRI of the infected foot, the nonenhanced areas represent infected tissue. Lack of enhancement in these areas can mask the presence of abscesses and osteomyelitis. This type of healing process requires time and patience and utmost self care.

How Diabetes Can Lead To Depression?

How Diabetes Can Lead To Depression?

The risk of developing depression is found by the means of various researches to be two to three times higher in individuals suffering from a chronic disease than in normal individuals. Type 1 and type 2 Diabetes are chronic diseases that can prove to be very challenging to manage due to various setbacks and complications that can come in the way. Regular monitoring of the blood sugar levels is essential in managing the blood sugar. Navigation of the health care facilities, side effects caused by medications, and other related health conditions or even diabetic complications can cause an increased risk of developing depression. If left undiagnosed and untreated, depression can give way to a poor lifestyle choice that can further deteriorate the physical health of a person.

Various risk factors that are associated with diabetes and depression are as follows-

  • lack of physical activity
  • poor social environment
  • poverty
  • stress during pregnancy

Depression in diabetes can occur simultaneously due to a variety of factors. These include the psychological and psychosocial impact of the disease on an individual, a potential common genetic susceptibility and certain common pathophysiological abnormalities that involve neuro-immunological and neuro-endocrinal pathways, as well as microvascular brain lesions due to diabetes mellitus. However, issues concerning pathogenesis and causality of this high co-occurrence are not fully determined yet. Still, the presence of depression in patients with diabetes mellitus is of vast importance, as it is usually associated with poor disease control, adverse health outcomes and quality of life impairment.

When an individual is suffering from diabetes, the awareness of risks of developing depression is essential. It has been widely researched and found that these two conditions can occur simultaneously, where depression is usually undiagnosed. Diabetes, specifically type 2, and depression affect each other in a bi-directional manner, which means that each of the disease can prove as a risk factor for the other. In a state of depression, it is common for a person to consume high calorie foods and also to lead a sedentary lifestyle. This tendency can prove to be a risk factor for developing type 2 diabetes.

If an individual already has type 2 diabetes, the stress experienced during the management of disease can cause depression. Type 1 diabetes develops as result of the defect of pancreas in production of insulin.

People with type 1 diabetes can also develop depressive symptoms due to difficulties in the management of the disease. If the symptoms of depression develop in the patient already suffering from diabetes, management of diabetes also becomes difficult. This can lead to cause various diabetes related complications and also decrease the life expectancy.

Various signs that can be observed in a state of depression are as follows:

  1. Complete lack of interest in doing any activity
  2. Irritation or mood swings
  3. Depressed mood
  4. Disturbed sleep pattern
  5. Changes in the appetite
  6. Constant feeling of despair
  7. Guilt Fatigue, weakness
  8. Difficulty in concentration, transient memory loss
  9. Suicidal tendency

There is a certain risk observed between the consumption of antidepressant medicines and development of diabetes. It has been researched and concluded that consuming antidepressants should always be on physician recommendation, with a prior advice on the risks of developing diabetes. It has also been found that the people with type 2 diabetes, who are using insulin regularly, are at higher risk for developing depression as compared to the people on non-insulin medications or following only diet or lifestyle modification habits. An additional stress experienced in managing diabetes and accessing the health care services can cause such complication in insulin users.

Common treatment protocol for depression includes psychotherapy or the cognitive behavioral therapy. It helps people to correct destructive thought patterns and behaviors that tend to increase the depressive symptoms. Other interventions like a structured problem solving approach, motivational interviewing, and interpersonal approach towards the patient is also effective in management. Certain medications can also help in mood-lifting and the management of symptoms of depression.

In diabetics, the treatment options that are available in addition to the standard medical healthcare provision includes self-management training sessions that help the people to increase healthy habits and improve control on their blood sugar levels. Diabetes as well as depression can improve with complete focus on lifestyle changes, like proper diet management and exercising regularly.

What causes hashimoto thyroiditis, and what is the best method of treatment? Can iodine help this condition?

MD - General Medicine, MBBS Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery
Endocrinologist, Indore
Hashimoto's disease is a condition in which your immune system attacks your thyroid, a small gland at the base of your neck below your Adam's apple. The thyroid gland is part of your endocrine system, which produces hormones that coordinate many of your body's functions. Inflammation from Hashimoto's disease, also known as chronic lymphocytic thyroiditis, often leads to an underactive thyroid gland (hypothyroidism). Hashimoto's disease is the most common cause of hypothyroidism in the United States. It primarily affects middle-aged women but also can occur in men and women of any age and in children. Doctors test your thyroid function to help detect Hashimoto's disease. Treatment of Hashimoto's disease with thyroid hormone replacement usually is simple and effective.

It seems you are mixing many personal things with the medical problem (diabetes) and getting depressed unnecessarily! Take a break and please learn more about Diabetes from the internet so that there is clarity of thought. Please understand that it is not really a dangerous disease as you think (or imagine!). All you have to do is to go to a doctor for a medical examination (so that you can be physically examined and advised some more tests to assess your overall health ). It is essential that you take the doctors help to diagnose and get it treated appropriately. Never attempt to treat yourself. There is of course a lot of scope to change your health status by simply following healthy lifestyle. (read about lifestyle changes for diabetes people and try to adapt the good habits with sincerity ). Soon you will feel better and will be able to handle it more easily without any mental stress. Always go for regular health check up and do the tests as advised by the doctor. This will ensure that you can lead a very normal life like any other normal person. You can also go for counselling (or talk to someone close to you to resolve all the conflicts in your mind) and learn to handle your thoughts and emotions with a very practical approach. Learn yoga and pranayam (learn it from an expert) which can not only rejuvenate your body but also hormonise the internal organs and help faster recovery.

Is rice bran oil good for bp 160/100?
What alternatives used for salt?
For sugar I found honey.
Type of oil has nothing to do with BP. There is no alternative for salt. You should take low salt diet. Honey is no alternative to sugar. If you are diabetic yould not take sugar, honey,jaggery (gur) in any form.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Please clarify following: Since when you have hypothyroidism? What were the TSH, T3 & T4 levels when the diagnosis was made? What is the present or lates TSH level? Apart from weight gain what other symptoms do you have? ED is unlikely to be due to hypothyroidism. Have checked blood glucose levels? If yes what are the fasting & PP glucose levels? What was your weight when there was no hypothyroidism? Your present BMI is 25.73 kgs/Sq meter (normal < 23 kgs /Sq meter). Do you take a restricted die, that gives exact amount of calories as needed based on your ideal body weight? What is the extent of daily exercise being done daily? Please come back with all the above clarifications. Thanks.
