Dear Lybrate User, It appears that your mom is worried about her physical health. It also appears to me that she is having lots of stress. It is possible that she has certain things on her mind which are very disturbing and she is unable to share it with anyone. This is probably causing her anger. If possible, help her in expressing her feelings. Try to see the world from her view point, try to understand her situations. Express your own concerns and tell her that you love her a lot. Also tell her that she is valuable. All she needs is love and care and it is to be expressed verbally. You may also take her to a Counsellor, where she will get an outlet to express her feelings and the counselling process will help her to understand what is happening to her and how to cope up with her difficulties. All the best.

To control your diabetes the first thing is your willpower you have to fight against it and if you will be serious in it you will definitely win now what you have to do you have to take half tablespoon fenugreek seeds and put it in 75 ml water at night before sleeping now in morning after being fresh drink this water and chew down the fenugreek seeds empty stomach do this regularly for 3 months without fail, if you are not regular then you will not get any benefit for example you consume this for 60 days and then forget to take for 2 days then your improvement will come to zero. Avoid sugar in any form because sugar is polysaccharide and you must b aware polysaccharide sugar is harmful for health you have to eat monosaccharides sugar in the form of glucose sucrose and fructose and that is easily available in natural fresh juices nd fruits and desi jaggery desi mishri nd khand. Continue your habit of walking you should target at least 90 minutes walk everyday.

Living Well With Type 2 Diabetes

General Physician, Mumbai
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.

First ensure that your sugar and bp are under control. Your bmi is 24 and you can do body strengthen ing exercises but before that consult your physician as you have blood pressure also as heavy exercises are not good for some patients of blood pressure.

It is certainly not harmful. The point is whether it is useful. Just doing multiple tests per day (you did not mention whether you are doing it every day) does not help you. Keep a diary and share the readings with your doctor to analyse it give instructions. Do it again when and how frequently it should be done for your diabetes management. He is the best judge. As your, level variations can properly be analysed and measures recommended by a qualified and experienced doctor.

Hello sir

Lybrate-user, please clarify whether you want to know how to control weight gain in pregnancy or want to reduce weight even otherwise. Because during pregnancy a gain of 12 to 14 kg weight is natural. Because of uterine size increase, placenta, amniotic fluid, fetus, mothers tissues particularly breast and in general. So weight gain is inevitable and necessary. If you have hypothyroidism and it is not in complete check, then also weight increases. When fully under control tsh should be between 3 to 4 milli units/l. Then only all symptoms are under control. Further, in pregnancy tsh levels should be still lower. Recommended levels are 1st trimester 0.1 to 2 milli units, 2nd trimester 0.3 to 3 milli units & 3rd 0.3 to 3.5 milli units/l. If levels are higher than these then that can lead to improper development of fetus, miscarriages and over all bad out come of pregnancy. If you have any doubts please come back. Thanks.

To keep asthma at bay, steroids are required and steroids increases sugar. Avoid oral steroids and have steroid based inhalers do brisk walking for 45 min daily for atleast 5 days a week it will help both in asthma and diabetes.

Mr. Lybrate-user, diabetes can only be treated by either oral anti-diabetic drugs or insulin injections or both. Plus diet restriction and regular exercise. Unfortunately there are no other drugs in any branch of medicine which control blood sugar. So my suggestion is to continue present treatment. I have seen patients in my practice who stopped modern medicine and started other therapies and have come back with exceptionally high blood sugar. Now the choice is yours.

Usually diabetes medicines don't result in change in urine colour. However, if you are taking vitamins, then it is possible. Please start drinking extra water. If it persists, please check a urine routine.

Hello your sugar levels seem to be normal particularly the pp level. Are you taking any treatment for this condition? if you are on treatment then eating mango on regular basis is out of question. You may eat one piece or so.
