Mr Nasir, If you are suffering with diabetes, and it has been confirmed then there no chance it will disappear. So I am unable to understand what you are saying. Please send following details : Fasting and after food blood sugar levels (present), HbA1c%, weight, height and waist circumference, extent of daily exercise, dietary pattern plus your BP reading. It will be good if you come in a private conversation with all the information, where I will be able to give specific guidance. In controlling diabetes restricted diet and exercise are very important, but drug treatment is absolutely essential. Without that it is impossible to control blood sugar level.

I suffer from thyroid and I am Over weight. Can you please suggest me to reduce it. Please.
Losing weight and keeping it off, is not an easy task and often we are frustrated by failed attempts at doing so. The cause of such failure, mostly, is not making the attempt in a comprehensive and disciplined manner. A comprehensive lifestyle modification program for weight loss not only helps you lose weight but also leads to significant betterment of blood sugar, lipids, bp levels etc. And thus reduces your health risks of diabetes and cvd but also make you feel more in control of your life. Therefore, if you have not been able to lose weight on your own, should consider getting into one of these. The components of such a program should be the following: diet modification and calorie restriction: the diet plan you should follow should be driven by the following principles: it should be aligned to your eating preferences in terms of food and frequency of eating, as much as possible ; no diet plan (low fat or low carb, 4-5 meals a day or more or less frequent meals etc.) has been prov.

You can take Nutrient-rich foods that improve your health may also benefit your thyroid gland, antioxidant-rich fruits and vegetables more plenty of water: Blueberries, tomatoes, bell peppers, and other foods rich in antioxidants can improve overall health and benefit the thyroid gland. Eating foods high in B vitamins, like whole grains, may also help. Selenium: Tiny amounts of selenium are needed for enzymes that make thyroid hormones to work properly. Eating selenium-rich foods, such as sunflower seeds or Brazil nuts, can be beneficial. Tyrosine: This amino acid is used by the thyroid gland to produce T3 and T4. Taking a supplement may help, avoid alcohl if you take.

lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. If you have been having uncontrolled diabetes, then there are bound to be multiple problems associated with it. You have not mentioned whether you have T1 or T2 diabetes. If T1, then only insulin injections can help. If blood glucose levels are not well controlled then conception may or may not occur. Plus if it does occur, then strict blood glucose control will only ensure a proper completion of pregnancy and delivery of healthy baby. Otherwise there can be serious problems. Thanks.

Mr. Lybrate-user, hypothyroidism is a condition that can only be only controlled with adequate dosage of thyroxine. But there is no cure. Once it is diagnosed then it remains with a person for lifetime. On treatment tsh level should be maintained between 3 to 4 milli units / l. Then only all symptoms are in check. Thanks for the question.

Preserving Your Fertility

MBBS, MS - Obstetrics and Gynaecology
IVF Specialist, Delhi

Hi I am Dr. Parul Katiyar. I am a senior IVF specialist in Max Hospital Delhi and in Max Gurgaon. So my interest is basically into preserving fertility and this is what i will be talking of in today’s discussion.

So what is fertility preservation? Fertility preservation is a process of preserving one’s eggs, sperms or any other reproductive tissue, which can be used for child bearing later on in life. It is a very important tool for preserving fertility for individual’s or persons where in child bearing is not likely to happen in near future however they would like to preserve their option of having a biological child in future. People who benefit from fertility preservation are people suffering from cancer because treatment for cancer is toxic to the eggs and sperms and therefore may lead to a permanent damage in one’s reproductive organs. Such people once they are cured would like to have their own biological child and therefore if they undertake fertility preservation before embarking for a cancer therapy, it is very useful for them. It is also helpful for women who want to delay their child bearing because of social reasons, career prospects or because they have not been able to find out the right partner as of now.

Women undergo biological aging and as the age advances the chance or the probability of becoming pregnant with one’s eggs will decline. Therefore, a woman who has frozen her eggs would be able to use those eggs later in life once she is ready to have her own child. People suffering from certain genetic diseases and immune disorders like LUPUS will also benefit from fertility preservation because genetic diseases may lead to a decline in one’s fertility at an accelerated rate and treatment of lupus and other immune disorders may again be toxic to one’s reproductive organs.

How do we preserve fertility? The various tools that are being used to preserve fertility in men are, most importantly, is the sperm cryopreservation or Sperm freezing. In this procedure what happens is that the man will have to ejaculate and produce a sperm sample in a laboratory and that sample is then processed and frozen in liquid nitrogen at -190 degree centigrade and preserved for whatever time they want to keep it. Freezing the sperms or any reproductive tissue has come out in a big way and it is very safe and with very good outcomes whenever those sperm samples or reproductive tissues are thought back and used for fertility.

The other important tool that is used in men is called Gonadal sparing, where in in individuals who need radiation therapy, the radiation is directed in such a manner that the organs that produce the sperm i.e. the testicles are spared in such a manner that there is testicular sparing, and therefore the spermatogenesis is not as badly effected as it would be if we do not take care of that. The tools for preserving fertility in women are first, embryo cryo-preservation; this is one of the most standardized technique for preserving one’s fertility.

In embryo cryopreservation, we inject the women with hormones so that they are able to produce multiple eggs and then those eggs are extracted and then fertilized with husband’s or partner’s sperm and then these embryos are cryo-preserved. However, in women who do not have a partner, they can undergo an oocyte cryopreservation as well. In oocyte cryopreservation, the same process is followed; however, as there is no partner, the eggs are frozen without even fertilization, which has become one of the most successful therapies for women who are undergoing cancer therapy at a young age or women who are not ready to have a child. Another technique that is being used is ovarian cryo-preservation or ovarian tissue cryo- preservation. The purpose of ovarian tissue cryo-preservation is that the entire ovary is taken out and then it is cut into slices and that ovarian cortical l tissue is then frozen in liquid nitrogen so that it can be re-implanted into the body of the women once she is ready to have the baby.

So these are various techniques, it’s an ever evolving field and we will have more and more of fertility preservation techniques that will come and help people conceive at a later stage in life. It is very aware that all of us make ourselves aware. As this is a very interesting field and has got a huge scope for a lot of people, it is very aware that all of us make ourselves aware of such technologies that exists.

Any woman or a man who is wanting to preserve their fertility can consult me, I am available at Max Hospital on all days and you can contact my on Lybrate, you can contact me through an SMS, you can chat, you can video call or you can even visit me at my clinic at Max hospital.

I am 61 year old type-2 diabetic. My fasting always remains high. My latest glucose fasting is 144, glucose PP is 145 and HbA1C is 7.3 with ayurvedic medicines and physical exercises. Do I need more medicines to bring down my glucose fasting? I understand that a random measurement of up to 180 is considered as pre-diabetic.

Fasting 144 and HbA1c 7.3 suggests established diabetes. At present you can start 20 min walk after dinner which might help in controlling fasting. Later on you may need to start metformin. Please consult any diabetologist before starting medication.

Diabetes control can only be achieved with the combination of diet, exercise and medicines, and not either alone. Go for a walk in the morning. Do regular exercise. Take lukewarm water with half spoon methi dana powder. Lose your extra weight this will not only lower your blood pressure but also helps lowering your cholesterol too. No skipping of meals. Never miss out breakfast. You should avoid fasting and feasting. Timely and balanced diet is as important as regular medicine intake to control diabetes. Complex carbohydrates and fibre should be included in diet.

Sab se zyada bechida sawaal jo mai logon se sunta hu jo vastavik mein ek simple sawaal hai wo ye hai k kya diabetes mujhe hai bhi ya nahi. Har insaan janna chahta hai k diabetes ya mudhume jaisi bimaari usey grasth kar rahi hai ya nahi. Well iska jawab aap ek simple blood test k dwara kisi bhi laboratory mein test karwa paa sakte hai. Agar aap ki fasting blood sugar 126 se zyada hai wo bhi 2 awsaro par na ki ek awsar par to aap ko diabetes ka mareez ghosith kiya jayega.

Aur isi uplaksh mein ek aur, isi samdhar mein ek aur test hota hai jo ki hai glycocelated Haemoglobin jise aasan bhasa mein HB-A1C test kaha jaata hai. Is test dwara aap ke 3 mahine k blood sugar ki ausaad pata lagayi ja sakti hai. Is test ka humein result percentage mein milta hai. Agar ye test 6.4% se zyada kisi bhi mareez mein paya jaata hai to use bhi diabetes ka mareez ghosith kia jaa sakta hai. Dosto diabetes itni bhi bechida bemari nahi hai jitna isko banaya jaata hai. Diabetes ko pata lagane k liye kewal ye 2 test mehetwapoorna bhi hai aur purna taur pe poore bhi hai jiske dwara aap diabetes k baare mein pata bhi laga sakte hai. Kuch aisi baate aur bhi hai jo mai aap ke saath discuss karna chahta hun.

Well, agar aap ke parivar me koi aisa sadasya hai jise diabetes hai ya aap ki umar 40yrs se zyada ho chuki hai ya aap ko sudden unexplained weight loss hai ya aap wazan me zyada hai ya aisa hai ki kuch dino se aap ko kuch zarurat se zyada bhukh lagne lagi hai ya zarurat se zyada peshaab aane lag gay ahai to aap ko diabetes ka test karana aniwarya hai. To dosto in vishesh baaton ka agar aap dhyaan rakhege to aapno ko aur aapne parijano ko diabetes jaisi bimaari se bacha sakte hai. Mere se sampark karne k liye aap kabhi bhi Delhi me mere clinic ka address Librate dwara paa sakte hai. Dhanyawad. Hello friends.

Well it is possible to prevent diabetes if all precautions are taken before it makes appearance. But once it is diagnosed it becomes very tough to avoid medications. You have mentioned the blood sugar levels, if they are too high or less. You can give a trial of three months by extensive exercise, strict diet (meeting correct caloric need daily) avoiding sweets, deep fried foods, including green salads in diet. Check sugar regularly almost alternate day. Try it out.

lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. The products mentioned are having mainly carbohydrates and considerable amount of sugar, hence not advisable for a person with diabetes. There are some protein powders available specially made for diabetes patients, those can be considered. However, first and foremeost is achieve a strict blood glucose control with fasting glucose < 100 mg, PP 160 to 170 mg & HbA1c% <7. With that kind of control patient feels fairly energetic. Plus diet should include good deal of green leafy vegetables and fruits. Thanks.

Having an hba1c between 8-9 shows that you are uncontrolled inspite of treatment and indicates that you are open to the complications of diabetes due to this uncontrolled state. Hba1c is an average of blood glucose over a span of 3 months. As hba1c starts to increase from 7.3 % onward the contribution of sugar disequilibrium is mostly contributed by raised fasting glucose rather than post meals blood glucose. If I ask you to check your sugars regularly- you will find your fasting glucose much raised than your post meals glucose. Hence you require change in the medicines that focus more on your fasting glucose and that will bring your hba1c down to the target of 7%.
