Gestational hypertension leads to 57% increased risk of calcification

Gestational hypertension normally resolves following birth, and blood pressure returns to normal. But women with elevated blood pressure during pregnancy are at higher risk of hypertension, diabetes, and cardiovascular disease later in life. Sabour and colleagues evaluated 491 healthy postmenopausal women selected from participants enrolled in the PROSPECT (Predictors of Response to Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy) study from 1993?1997. Women with a history of gestational hypertension had an almost 60% increased risk of having coronary calcification several decades later compared with women who had normal blood pressure during pregnancy. The relationship held for women who had mild elevations in blood pressure during pregnancy as well as for those who developed preeclampsia ? a more serious complication of pregnancy characterized by very high blood pressure, edema, and risk of organ damage.

In last year my thyroid level has increased upto 10 points I want to control my thyroid level by natural ways, please help.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Meerji, If your TSH level has above 10milli unit/ ml then you have to start the treatment with thyroxine tablets, there is "no natural way" to control raised TSH level. If you do not want to start treatment with thyroxine, then you will suffer with consequences of hypothyroidism. I leave it to your judgement.

If there is confirmed diabetes, the only way to treat it is to take modern medicines - anti diabetes drugs either oral or insulin injections or both depending upon the need. Other medical therapies are at the most can be used as supportive treatments. Along with proper drugs, exercise and diet control are also very important. Plus please understand there is no cure for diabetes. In some ads people claim they cure diabetes, this is totally false. If anyone cures diabetes then he will get nobel prize for that. So do not go by any adds. There are some ayurvedic medicines being advertised none of them have been tried like modern medicines on human beings in double blind trials. Only some animal trials are done. So better not to go by adds. Thanks for the question. Th.

Rebecaji, If you are on treatment for hypothyroidism, and if TSH is around 3 to 4 mU/L, then all the symptoms will be in check. As regards pain in left iliac region, it difficult to say why it is occurring. But if you are consuming a lot of so called chinese food, then it may be the cause, as it has aginomotoo (monosodium glutamate) in considerable quantity. It is better avoid or prepare at home. Thanks.

So what can I do?
Hi, I am a registered dietitian, certified diabetes educator and a doctor (general physician) who will help you in your diabetes problem. Do let me know your hba1c value? also you need to provide me your daily food intake details. There are many lifestyle and dietary guidelines that can be followed: take high fiber prescribed diet which includes soluble fibre like apple, isabgol etc. Get more physical activity by prescription from a registered dietitian eat a balanced diet which includes whole grains and excludes all refined products like maida as prescribed by a registered dietitian, if you're overweight, diabetes prevention may hinge on weight loss. Every pound you lose can improve your health, and you may be surprised by how much. Participants in one large study who lost a modest amount of weight around 7 percent of initial body weight and exercised regularly reduced the risk of developing diabetes by almost 60 percent. I being a registered dietitian and doctor have been successfully helping patients with their diabetes problem. I will also prescribe medicines that will speed up the time to achieve your weight management goals. Do reply back for private consultation.

I'm a type 2 diabetic women. I'm 2 months pregnant. Kya baby ko diabetes ho sakti hai?

Diabetes in the mother does not get transmitted directly to the baby. However, being the child of a diabetic parent, your child will have a higher chance of developing diabetes later in life. In pregnancy, however, one needs to control the sugars very strictly, otherwise the baby can have many problems including congenital anomalies, hypoglycemia, metabolic problems and growth problems etc.

Lybrate-user, the condition being described looks like he had an attack of hypoglycemia. Did you check his blood glucose level then? if blood glucose level goes below 70 mg or lower like <60 mg or even lower, patient may get such attacks. It is important to achieve a strict blood glucose control, but equally important thing is not to allow episodes of hypoglycemia. Severe hypoglycemia can be very dangerous, particularly in elderly persons. If you have a glucometer at home, it is better to check glucose level. If it is low, then it is essential to give glucotabs 2 or 3 tabs cor candy, sugar ar some sweet etc can help. Thanks.

Sir/Madam, This is regarding my mother who was diagnosed with Autoimmune hepatitis on 26th Sep. Her treatment is going very well. On 14th Sep, before her treatment started, her SGPT and SGOT were 616 IU/L and 361 IU/L respectively. Liver biopsy confirmed Autoimmune hepatitis. Her treatment started on 3rd Oct. Doctor started her treatment with Wysolone - 30 mg (1-0-0) for the first 2 months and when her SGPT and SGOT came under 50 IU/L, he switched to Budesonide (6 mg-0-3 mg). My query is regarding the side effects of the steroid use. My mother has been diabetic for the past 5 years for which she took glimestar M1. When the Doctor started her on Wysolone, in less than a week, the side effects started to show. Her blood sugar started to fluctuate uncontrollably. It goes from as high as 500 mg/dl to as low as 55 mg/dl. Doctor put her on Insulin (NovoMix 30 Flexpen). I was advised to constantly monitor her sugar and vary the units of Insulin as per her sugar level and that's what I have been doing ever since the treatment started. This sugar fluctuation thing is very unpredictable, so unpredictable that I have to constantly stay with my mother all the time. We don't even travel anywhere because of it. I have been telling our Doctor to do something about it but he says the same thing every time, control the sugar with Insulin. Is there any other way to minimize her sugar level fluctuation? Can you advice any medicine. Thank you.

, With steroid treatment blood glucose does increase, because corticosteroids are diabetogenic. One of the possible ways is to reduce the dose of steroid to minimum possible, plus use a long acting Insulin like Basalog (Glargine) plus a short acting insulin to control post breakfast & post lunch surges of glucose Thanks.

For diabetes follow a diet low in carbohydrate, low in salt, low in fat and high in fibre. Avoid bakery products. Avoid too much rice and potato. Avoid fried stuff. Avoid chocolate, cakes, ice cream, soft drinks and fruit juices. Eat lots of vegetables. Walk for at least 30 minutes a day for 5 days in a week. Even after following a good diet and exercise, your blood sugar is out of control, then you will require medicine to control your blood sugar.

Thank you for the query. As per the history you have provided, you are hypertensive (BP 130/90 mm of Hg, on Tenormin 25 and Stamlo 5 mg), have hyperlipidemia (raised cholesterol) and non-diabetic. It would be helpful, if you would have posted the reprots of the lipid profile. Itis advisable to maintain your Total cholesterol <200 mg%, LDL <120 mg% and HDL >45 mg%. The Triglyceride level should be <150 mg%. Since you have limited walking capacity, you need to modify on the diet. Reduce the intake of saturated fat (ghee, butter etc) and refined carbohydrate. The Statin (Atorvastatin, Rosuvastatin) group of medications is effective in reducing cholesterol, but should be taken only after consulting your physician. Regards.

1) Whole grains - brown rice, rotis made from whole wheat flour, whole jowar flour and bajra flour, Ragi, Oats 2) Fresh vegetables - they have high fibre content. Also include green leafy vegetables. 3) Fruits - they also have high fibre. Your mother can take apples, pears, Sweet lime (Mosambi), Orange, papaya, guava etc. Mangoes, bananas and grapes have high sugar - hence only consume in less quantity. 4) Protein - pulses, egg, lean meat (fish, chicken), sprouts 5) Milk - low fat milk and dairy products 6) Good fats like Omega 3 and mono unsaturated fats (MUFA) should be consumes. Eg; Canola oil, flax seed oil, nuts etc Take frequent small meals instead of 3 big meals. In between meals she can take snacks of fruits, buttermilk, yoghurt etc.
