What is the symptom of diabetes. And how to control the sugar level in human body?

What is the symptom of diabetes. And how to control the sugar level in human body?
Increased thirst, appetite and urination are the early symptoms. Diabetes, often referred to by doctors as diabetes mellitus, describes a group of metabolic diseases in which the person has high blood glucose (blood sugar), either because insulin production is inadequate, or because the body's cells do not respond properly to insulin, or both. It is a difficult task to control blood sugar in the desired normal range. Whatever we eat is metabolised to sugar in the body to provide energy for our daily activities. For the absolute control, one has to monitor his / her blood sugar at regular intervals (Self-Monitoring of Blood glucose – SMBG). Though difficult, this can be done by a glucometer and keep a record. Get an idea of Fasting sugar (FBS) and 2 hours after food (PPBS), & HbA1C (inform me) and check before dinner and after every major food. The basic idea is to reduce the food intake to 1/3 of what you take now. The dictum of sugar control is diet, exercise, diet + medicine and at later stage medicine+ Insulin will be needed. There are different diet plans of varying calories for each person depending on his activity & life style. For sugar control there is the need for regular advice and follow up. Just one time consultation or advice is not enough to guide a diabetic in scientifically & medically correct manner. For giving you regular follow up you ask me with all details like your daily eating pattern and medicines you take.

Hello sir my name is somya I am 30 year old married female and I have sugar problem last two years what should I do.
Mrs Soumya, To give any suggestions, I need to know some details like : Fasting and PP sugar levels (present), HbA1c%, current treatment, dietary pattern and extent of daily physical activity. It is better if you come in a private conversation with these details,, where I will be able to give specific suggestions. In this communication we are supposed to give only general guidelines like - Avoid sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries, red meat and egg yolk. Consume more of green leafy vegetables, salads and permitted fruits (100 g a day). Exercise at least for 1 h a day. Basically diabetes mellitus treatment needs drugs plus following a modified life style.

Thyroxine does not interfere with being pregnant. Only caution is - thyroid profile should be within normal range during pregnancy to avoid fatal and maternal consequences. So more frequent testing and thyroxine titration required.

I am happy to know that your sugar levels are in control. However, please check hba1c% it should be around 6.5%, which means the control is good. It is important that you also maintain your weight near normal, right now your bmi is 29.77kg/m2 which shows obesity. Obesity also affects diabetes and fertility. Please take care to cut your weight as it is high as your ideal body weight should be 57 kgs. You need to exercise for more than 1 h a day and follow restricted diet avoiding deep fried foods, red meat and high fat containing items.

How many types of diabetes in our body what is the medicine for diabetes patient.
Mr. Lybrate-user, commonly seen diabetes are of two types: t1 dm due to total absence of insulin, where the treatment is only insulin injection for lifetime. T2 dm where there is lack of insulin or resistance to its action or both. This is the most prevalent form this can be treated by oraldrugs and or insulin or both.

Lybrate-userji, first thing is if you have hypothyroidism then it should be properly controlled, with tsh levels maintained between 3 to 4 milli units/l. If that is not achieved then you will have to see that the dose of thyroxine may have to be increased. As regards you question on whether pregnant or not, if in doubt, get a test done. But if you have not been having menstrual periods then it is unlikely to happen. Thanks.

Hello, at the age of 50 with abnormal bleeding pattern one has to rule out precancerous or cancerous conditions. Surgery would be different if there is any such suspicion. So to rule that out it is always better to get endometrial biopsy and papsmear before a major surgery. It is a very simple procedure, need not worry about it. Or there is sn office procedure done as outpatient itself which is further simpler. All the best.

Mr. Lybrate-user, your blood sugar is really in excellent control. At 75 years, adding weight may become a bit difficult. But you might try taking some additional protein powder (ment for diabetes patient). Or increase your intake a bit, but that is likely to increase blood sugar level.

I am 48 years old male. For last few years I had been getting over weight. I am 173 cms tall and weigh 101kg. The weight is mainly on stomach. Now the stomach is so big that size 46 shirts will only fir for me. My chest hands etc are normal. Inspite of no regular drinking for past 2 years the stomach is not reducing. As I have some arthritis heavy joint pains prevent me from normal exercise like walking running etc. I am taking medicine to reduce uric acid. Which little bit over the allowable limit. Now for last 2 years I am not getting proper erection during sexual activity. Kindly help me to attain normalcy. I do not smoke. I have 2 0r 3 peg brandy once or twice a month at weekends. I am a non-veg. I have a borderline bp and cholesterol. Please advise me of how to come out of this situation and lead normal life.

according to my calculations, your bmi (body mass index) is coming to be over 40 kg/m2 which means that you have morbid obesity. In this case, you have to reduce at least 25-30 kgs of weight in order to come within the healthy range. The best option for you would be bariatric surgery (weight loss surgery) which would not only result in long term and effective weight loss but also reduce the risk of obesity related diseases like diabetes, hypertension, etc. The decrease in sexual potency may also be the result of obesity which causes hormonal imbalance in the body which would be corrected after losing adequate weight.

Mr. Lybrate-user, if he has diabetes and high uric acid, both conditions need to be treated with specific drugs. In addition to drugs, diet control and exercise also needed fro controlling blood sugar. As regards high uric acid (no details are given about uric acid level or sugar level and hba1c%), he should avoid high purine containing foods like organ meat, red meat, a number of fishes like sardines, salmon, herring, haddock, shell fish, scallops, mushrooms and mussels. High fat milk products, alcohol and sweetened aerated drinks. Should consume more of green leafy vegetables and whole grain products. Thanks for the question.

Sugar is quite high, haemoglobin is quite low. B 12 is also low and can be the cause of anaemia. You must be on some antiglycaemic drug but dietary control may not be to the mark. Take small frequent meals in place of 2 regular full meals. Exercise regularly to bring down the weight from 81 to 65. Vit. B 12 should be taken by injections till the level reaches normal.
