What age humans are prone to get diabetes?
Diabetes can occur at any age. There are two main types t1 dm which usually starts at a younger age including early childhood. T2dm earlier called late onset diabetes, starts at a later age. Earlier we used to see this condition in persons above 40 yrs. However, now a days it often starts even tean age. T1 is auto immune type disease. T2 is due to over weight, inactivity, junk food and migration. Plus there is family history.

Whis is the better blood sugar test to follow: 1. venous, or2. Capillary. Finger tip using glucometer.
Mr JP Bayer, Both methods of testing blood glucose levels are quite valid and are useful. There is a difference in values for example capillary blood will show about 11% higher glucose because blood on the arterial capillaries has not given it glucose to muscles and tissues for utilisation. Where as venous blood which is going back to the heart after glucose has been used up by tissues and muscles, so value is slightly lower. However, now a days most modern glucometers have been caliberated to give glucose levels as in the venous blood. Major difference may be noticed only post food glucose levels. If one wants to do a self monitoring of glucose levels then glucometer is an excellent option.

Dear Mr. Singh, it's a good gesture on your part to be concerned of your sister's health! as she's got diabetes from the age of 12, it must be type 1 diabetes mostly. Type 1 diabetes means that pancreas is unable to make insulin and hence patient requires to take insulin for the whole life. But at the same time it's very much possible to lead almost normal life and ulmost normal life expectancy. Following are the ways in which you can help her lead a normal life. 1) at home monitoring of blood glucose with a glucose checking machine at home. 2) keeping glucose between 110-160 mg%. As much as possible. 3) avoid low sugar as much as possible. A sugar less than 72 mg% is defined as low sugar. 4) keep checking her for kidney function, hba1c, lipid profile, blood pressure, eye check and foot checkups to diagnose complications and when detected to address it promptly. 5) to take very stringent care during pregnancy. If possible look for newer option of insulin pump should be considered.

In case of diabetes you have to eat nutrient dense food and exercise well. You need a diet which comprises of whole grains like jowar, bajra, wheat, brown rice, pulses like moong, musoor, bengal gram, lots of vegetables, fruits, eggs, fish, chicken, paneer, healthy oil, nuts and seeds. You need to eat them in right proportion. Avoid eating sugar and sweets, refined foods like maida, noodles pasta, white rice and products, bread. Drink a lot of water. Exercise atleast 5 times a week. Do not overeat. Eat 3 proper meals and 2 snacks in between. Stop when your stomach is 80% full. Eat slowly.

Hello sir, hope you are doing good. Pls don't stop bp medication, unless doctor ask you to stop. Diabetes, bp require a long term medication. But this might also lead to your constipation problem. If you have constipation more than occasionally or have severe pain or bleeding, it's important to check-in with your doctor as these symptoms can be a sign of a more serious digestive disorder. However, in most cases constipation is just a sign that your diet needs more fiber. The average adult needs between 25 and 30 grams of fiber a day to ward off constipation, far less than most of us typically eat. To avoid bloating and cramping, you'll want to gradually add fiber to your diet. Badam, orange, apple has more fiber pls eat as raw. Dont make a juice of it. Let me suggest you some best fiber supplement from who certified. This fiber is easily digestible and give a best result you need to take after meals in the afternoon and evening. Just leave a message to me on my private questions. Have a nice day.

Please do not believe all these miracle drugs, which claim magical cures for diabetes. You will waste your money and on top of that health of your mother will deteriorate. Health is precious. However getting back to good health is not costly. It can be done step by step by simplifying diet and having better lifestyle.

Regarding online consultation there are certain points which all should know and follow. 1) the description of the diseases should be complete in all respects, including any tests done and any medicines already taking. Just saying I have diabetes since 10 years and taking metformin cannot help a discerning doctor a scientific advice. 2) your place and name and mail id and phone number should be in the question. It is necessary at times to know where you stay to give a good advice. (for example if there the climate is warm or cold and many other factors) 3) it is necessary to keep in regular touch for some diseases like diabetes and hypertension. So make it a point to be in touch by asking private questions. And repeat the essential point of the previous question to give a continuing answer. All these are said with intention to give a scientifically correct answer and talk as if in a regular consultation about which I am very keen to. 4) for personalised attention and follow up ask privately and it is better to make online payment if you are asked to by the doctor. It involves his time and dedication to give you expert advice after studying your problem. Ask personally in case of doubts about any medical matter.

What is your hba1c value? what medicines currently you are on. Yes type 2 diabetes is hereditary and it can pass on to your daughters as well. Hereditary familial diabetes in lean are mostly of monogenic forms where insulin secretion defect is more than insulin resistance. So secretagouge is necessarily required and such individual need exogenous insulin earlier compared to type 2 patients.

Hi lybrate-user, white discharge befeore&after periods is normal phenomena for any healthy women& even its common during midterm of cycle. Means 2nd&3rd wk after periods also, as then that is ovulation time,&so the dicharge is. Unless its offencive odored, with any itching, rash over extrenal area, staining the linen greenish or yellowish in colour, then we could suspect any infection, then some times both couple should use the medications based on the diagnosis&if any infections I identified. As you are taking more intake of water, then the out floew also will be more. Once you can check by taking less intake or avoiding water intake for few hrs&then observe, still the same frequency is maintaining or not so. Anyway, there are no sugar levels identified in test, you need not worry& at the same time you continue the more intake of water as usual which is good for body ingeneral. **abt conception, iys just 4 months only since married, so, you need not worry abt pregnancy. Plan the intercourse during ovulation period, i. E. From 2nd wk to 3rd wk. More often. If your menstrual cycle is normal, then you need not to worry. But still you are anxious, or after waiting 2 more months, you both try to go for check ups, including harmones[ like thyroid, lsh, etc}& for your husband. Semen analysis.

Dear Lybrate User, *Firstly you take your food with 2 to 3 hr intervals, devided into 3 main meals and 3 small meals. Main meals should consist of 1/4 portion of protein and 1/4 portion of carbohydrates and 2 portion of vegetables more or less at the same time of the day to make your biological clock perfect. Avoid high calorie food such as fried things, mango, banana, sapota, juices, sweets. Secondly do regular exercise, yoga or walk. Thirdly always take your medicine in time as advised by your doctor. Keep your self hydrated and take enough sleep.

For a diabetic it is best advised to have a diet planned as per the sugar levels, lifestyle and history. Though you can follow some guidelines - have small frequent meals. Do not fast for more than 2-3 hours. Avoid a very heavy meal at one time. Avoid fruit juices, aerated drinks or sugarcane juice, honey, jaggery or sugar. Fruits should be had as a mid meal. Avoid junk foods. Exercise and stay active. Do not attempt to try out too many remedies as you could go into hypoglycaemia. Sleep well. It's all a matter of discipline.

Yooji, diet for a diabetes patient is very individualised and specific. It is based on ideal body weight, sugar levels and extent of daily exercises. So unless all the details are given no diet can be prescribed. I need to know fasting and pp sugar levels, hba1c%, dietary pattern lipid profile, extent of daily exercise. It is better if you come in a private conversation with all the details, where I can give a specific plan.
