It helps in reducing after food rise blood glucose level. However, his treatment for diabetes is not adequate, needs to be changed. In good controlled diabetes hba1c level is around 6.5%

Any elderly (60 years or more) who is a diabetic must have influenza vaccine yearly always in the month of September to October. It takes one month for the vaccine to develop protection. The problem of inflenza is most in cold weather. That is the reason.

Type 2 Diabetes - Symptoms, Causes And Treatment

MBBS, MD - General Medicine, DNB, DM - Endocrinology
Endocrinologist, Gurgaon
Type 2 Diabetes - Symptoms, Causes And Treatment

Glucose is the primary ingredient within the body, which is turned into an energy source. This is what we use when we move, walk or make the slightest movements. To metabolize glucose into energy, our body needs insulin, which is a hormone produced within the pancreas. However, if the body doesn't react to the insulin or the pancreas is unable to produce enough, glucose cannot be converted into energy and thus results in type 2 diabetes.

Symptoms of type 2 diabetes:

  1. Sudden or gradual weight loss despite increased hunger - Many people complain that they feel hungry and eat more, but despite this the tend to lose weight. This occurs as the body cannot metabolize glucose and uses energy reserves from fat or muscles leading to weight loss.
  2. Frequent infections and slow healing - If you are afflicted with type 2 diabetes, then it might affect your immune system and you may be prone to infections. Also, any cuts or bruises on your body will take much longer to heal than normal.
  3. Irritability and fatigue - Another common symptom of type 2 diabetes along with the other symptoms mentioned here is quick irritability and fatigue. This is because most of the body is deprived of sugar and thus lacks the energy needed to function normally. 
  4. Constant thirst and increased urination - If you feel constantly thirsty despite drinking ample water and urinating frequently, this may be a tell tale sign of type 2 diabetes.
  5. Skin darkening in folds and creases of the body - Also known as acanthosis nigricans; this is known darkening of the skin where it also becomes velvety to the touch. It usually develops in the folds of skin in areas, such as the neck and armpits and is a direct result of insulin resistance.

Causes of type 2 diabetes:

Some of the most common causes of type 2 diabetes could be:

  • Being overweight
  • Lack of physical activity
  • Genetic predisposition or family history 
  • If you are more than 45 years of age
  • Hormonal problems such as Polycystic ovarian syndrome

Treatment or management of type 2 diabetes:

In most cases, major lifestyle changes can easily keep the symptoms of type 2 diabetes in check although, in certain cases medications may also be required. Some of the steps necessary are as follows:

  1. Change in diet and healthy eating
  2. Physical activity and exercising
  3. Regular blood sugar monitoring and
  4. Blood sugar medication along with insulin therapy, if necessary

Causes, symptoms and treatment of Infertility

Hi, I am Dr. Jayanti Kamany. I am an IVF Consultant practicing at Srishti Fertility Centre and Women's Clinic in Mumbai. So, today i'll be talking about Infertility. The problem of infertility is on a steep rise. Some of the causes for the rise in inferility are increased age at the time of marriage for women, postponement of child bearing. Even if a women gets married earlier she postpones her child bearing for various purposes like her career.

Increased stress levels today, increased levels of sexually transmitted diseases and of course Tuberculosis, which is a very common disease in our country. So, who is to be blamed for the infertility. We have found that 3 out of 10 couples are battling with this problem of infertility. 30% of the faults is found in the female, another 30% is found in the male partner, again 30% is found in both partners and about 10-15% cannot be explained because inspite of all the tests being normal, there is no problem which can be found and we call it unexplained infertility.

There are two types of infertility:

1. Primary infertility- Primary infertility is when the couple has never conceived

2. Secondary infertility-  Secondary infertility is when the couple had a child but cannot conceive again, or the couple has conceived, has had an abortion but there is no conception again.

When should a couple consult or take treatment for infertility? 

Usually if the ovum is young, if she is below 28 years she can wait for one year after trying to consult an Infertility Specialist. Even after one year if the couple doesn't conceive inspite of having regular sexual intercourse without having birth control measures they should see an Infertility specialist.

Now there are certain conditions where a couple irrespective of the duration of marriage or age should see a doctor immediately. So, what are those conditions? In the female, if she is having any problems regarding her menstrual cycle, suppose her menstrual cycles are irregular or she is getting very scanty bleeding or scantimensis or she has very severe pain during mensis or otherwise if she had a surgery where her one ovary is removed or a problem of polycystic ovarian disease which is very common today the she needs to see a Gynaec immediately. If she has recurrent abortions, that is, she can conceive but cannot carry the pregnancy to 9 months then definitely there is something wrong with her so she has to consult an Infertility specialist.

What are the causes in a male?

A male, if he has had a surgery in the testes or if he has a history of a disease called mumps in his childhood, or if he has a low sperm count or he cannot feel his testis in his scrotum then he needs to see a Fertility specialist.

For further information on this topic of Infertility or if you are planning to conceive, you can consult me on Lybrate.com.

Dear lybrate user, protein is one of the most vital nutritional substances which are required for human body. Almost every high protein diet contains purine. This purine produces uric acid on oxidation. Excess uric acid is accumulated at the joints of human beings as urate salts. This accumulation of urate salts lead to pain & swelling of those affected joints & this condition is clinically known as gout. You should avoid high protein rich diet like mutton, chicken, beef, eggs, sea fish, spinach, garden pea, tomato, lentils etc. Also you need to take homoeopathic mother tincture urtica urens q, 30 drops, thrice daily, after meals, in a cup of water. This medicine will help to dissolve the accumulated excess urate salts from the joints.

I am having a high uric acid problem. What should I do in order to reduce it and control it?

MBBS, MD - Internal Medicine
Internal Medicine Specialist, Faridabad
A high uric acid level can be caused when your body either produces too much uric acid or your kidneys don't eliminate uric acid rapidly enough. A high uric acid level may cause increasingly frequent attacks of gout, or it may never cause problems. A high uric acid level may also cause some people to develop kidney stones or kidney failure. And some people with a high uric acid level also develop high blood pressure, heart disease or chronic kidney disease, but it's often unclear whether this is a direct cause or merely an early warning sign of these conditions. Factors that may cause a high uric acid level in your blood include: Diuretic medications (water pills) Drinking too much alcohol Genetics (inherited tendencies) Hypothyroidism (underactive thyroid) Immune-suppressing drugs Niacin, or vitamin B-3 Obesity Psoriasis Purine-rich diet — organ meat, game meat, anchovies, herring, gravy, dried beans, dried peas, mushrooms and other foods Renal insufficiency — inability of the kidneys to filter waste Tumor lysis syndrome — a rapid release of cells into the blood caused by certain cancers or by chemotherapy for those cancers Also, you may be monitored for high uric acid levels when undergoing chemotherapy or radiation treatment for cancer.

Sir, what are the symptoms of thyroid can you please give me a perfect report on this.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Hi there are no symptoms for thyroid because it is a normal gland present is all of us, producing hormone thyroxine. Deficiency of this hormone causes hypothyroidism and excess causes hyperthyroidism. Of these hypothyroidism is more common. This causes weight gain, slow heart rate, sluggishness, tired feeling, fatigue, joint pains, intolerance to cold, dry skin and hair, hair loss, in ladies there is irregularity of menstrual periods, excess flow, difficulty in speech, inability to concentrate, anxiety and depression etc.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Mr Ramesh, TSH is just below normal, this is because of throxine being taken. The dose appears to be fine if T3 and T4 are also normal. There is no need to do any thing. Continue the same treatment.

lybrate-user, If hypothyroidism is under control then periods usually become normal, provided that is the only cause. Sometimes there may be other hormonal issues also involved, then one needs to investigate further to find out exact cause. If hypothyroidism is in control then TSH should be between 3 to 4 m U/L. If the value is higher than this then irregularity invariably persists. You have not mentioned the current TSH level, which will give an idea about the control of hypothyroidism. Thanks.

Suggest measures to reduce. Blood uric acid level mine is5. 4, is it cause gouty arthritis?

MBBS, M.MED, DFM, FID, CCEBDM, ACMDC, CCMTD
Diabetologist, Hyderabad
Suggest measures to reduce. Blood uric acid level mine is5. 4, is it cause gouty arthritis?
Gout, a painful form of arthritis, occurs when high levels of uric acid in the blood cause crystals to form and accumulate around a joint. Uric acid is produced when the body breaks down a chemical called purine. Purine occurs naturally in your body, but it's also found in certain foods. Uric acid is eliminated from the body in urine. A gout diet may help decrease uric acid levels in the blood. While a gout diet is not a cure, it may lower the risk of recurring painful gout attacks and slow the progression of joint damage. Medication also is needed to manage pain and to lower levels of uric acid. Purpose Diet details The general principles of a gout diet are essentially the same as recommendations for a balanced, healthy diet: Weight loss. Being overweight increases the risk of developing gout, and losing weight lowers the risk of gout. Research suggests that reducing the number of calories and losing weight — even without a purine-restricted diet — lowers uric acid levels and reduces the number of gout attacks. Losing weight also lessens the overall stress on joints. Complex carbs. Eat more fruits, vegetables and whole grains, which provide complex carbohydrates. Avoid foods such as white bread, cakes, candy, sugar-sweetened beverages and products with high-fructose corn syrup. Water. Keep yourself hydrated by drinking water. An increase in water consumption has been linked to fewer gout attacks. Aim for eight to 16 glasses of fluids a day with at least half of that as water. A glass is 8 ounces (237 milliliters). Talk to your doctor about appropriate fluid intake goals for you. Fats. Cut back on saturated fats from red meats, fatty poultry and high-fat dairy products. Proteins. Limit daily proteins from lean meat, fish and poultry to 4 to 6 ounces (113 to 170 grams). Add protein to your diet with low-fat or fat-free dairy products, such as low-fat yogurt or skim milk, which are associated with reduced uric acid levels. Recommendations for specific foods or supplements include the following: High-purine vegetables. Studies have shown that vegetables high in purines do not increase the risk of gout or recurring gout attacks. A healthy diet based on lots of fruits and vegetables can include high-purine vegetables, such as asparagus, spinach, peas, cauliflower or mushrooms. You can also eat beans or lentils, which are moderately high in purines but are also a good source of protein. Organ and glandular meats. Avoid meats such as liver, kidney and sweetbreads, which have high purine levels and contribute to high blood levels of uric acid. Selected seafood. Avoid the following types of seafood, which are higher in purines than others: anchovies, herring, sardines, mussels, scallops, trout, haddock, mackerel and tuna. Alcohol. The metabolism of alcohol in your body is thought to increase uric acid production, and alcohol contributes to dehydration. Beer is associated with an increased risk of gout and recurring attacks, as are distilled liquors to some extent. The effect of wine is not as well-understood. If you drink alcohol, talk to your doctor about what is appropriate for you. Vitamin C. Vitamin C may help lower uric acid levels. Talk to your doctor about whether a 500-milligram vitamin C supplement fits into your diet and medication plan. Coffee. Some research suggests that moderate coffee consumption may be associated with a reduced risk of gout, particularly with regular caffeinated coffee. Drinking coffee may not be appropriate for other medical conditions. Talk to your doctor about how much coffee is right for you. Cherries. There is some evidence that eating cherries is associated with a reduced risk of gout attacks. A sample menu Here's a look at what you might eat during a typical day on a gout diet: Breakfast Whole-grain, unsweetened cereal with skim or low-fat milk 1 cup fresh strawberries Coffee Water Lunch Roasted chicken breast slices (2 ounces) on a whole-grain roll with mustard Mixed green salad with balsamic vinegar and olive oil dressing Skim or low-fat milk Water Afternoon snack 1 cup fresh cherries Water Dinner Roasted salmon (3-4 ounces) Roasted or steamed green beans 1/2 cup whole-grain pasta with olive oil and lemon pepper Water Low-fat yogurt 1 cup fresh melon Caffeine-free beverage, such as herbal tea Dos and do nots Uric acid: Manage high uric acid with nutrition tip #1 High-fibre foods According to the University of Maryland Medical Center, adding foods high in dietary fibre may help lower uric acid levels in your blood. Dietary fibre may help absorb uric acid in your bloodstream, allowing it to be eliminated from your body through your kidneys. Increase the consumption of dietary soluble fibres such as Isabgol, Oats, Spinach, Broccoli to name few. Uric acid: Manage high uric acid with nutrition tip #2 Cold-pressed olive oil Use cold-pressed olive oil in cooking instead of shortening, butter or vegetable oils. Oils that have been subjected to heat or processing turn rancid quickly. Rancid fats destroy vitamin E in your body - this vitamin is necessary for controlling uric acid levels. Olive oil helps you avoid the production of excess uric acid, which is associated with the consumption of rancid fats. Uric acid: Manage high uric acid with nutrition tip #3 Take in a healthy dose of vitamin C To help reduce the amount of uric acid in your system, regularly taking 500 milligrams of vitamin C will decrease your uric acid levels in a month or two. Uric acid: Manage high uric acid with nutrition tip #4 Avoid bakery products Avoid cakes, pastries, cookies and other sugary delights which are rich in saturated fats and trans fats. Uric acid: Manage high uric acid with nutrition tip #5 Celery seed extract This is also a popular natural remedy for gout and uric acid problems. The seeds of the celery plant have long been used to treat gout, rheumatism and arthritis. Celery possesses sedative, antioxidant and mild diuretic action and is considered a urinary antiseptic. In rare cases, this herb is also used to treat sleeplessness, anxiety and nervous breakdown. Although the seeds of this plant are often used in herbal supplements, the roots may also be used. Uric acid: Manage high uric acid with nutrition tip #6 Antioxidant-rich foods Fruits and vegetables such as red bell peppers, tomatoes, blueberries, broccoli and grapes are rich sources of antioxidant vitamins. Antioxidants which are vitamins that prevent free radical molecules from attacking your organ and muscle tissue cells may help lower uric acid levels. Uric acid: Manage high uric acid with nutrition tip #7 Cherries Cherries contain chemical compounds that may help neutralise uric acid allowing your body to eliminate this acid as waste. Some researchers recommend consuming 30 to 40 cherries every four hours during an attack. Uric acid: Manage high uric acid with nutrition tip #8 Apple cider vinegar It is believed that raw, apple cider vinegar can help alleviate high uric acid levels by changing the pH values of your blood. But it has to be raw, un-distilled, un-pasteurised apple cider vinegar; the kind you get from your local health food store. Dr. Sharad advices a simple home remedy" Add 2 teaspoons of vinegar to a large glass of water and stir thoroughly. Drink a glass between 2 and 3 times every day. You can also use it topically: half a cup added to three cups of hot water and soak the affected area for 30 minutes. Reheat and repeat as necessary. Uric acid: Manage high uric acid with nutrition tip #9 Saturated fat, trans fat, sugar and alcohol All these affect your triglycerides, a type of fat that can clog your arteries and increase your risk for heart attacks and strokes. Uric acid: Manage high uric acid with nutrition tip #10 High-fructose corn syrup This is a type of sweetener in soft drinks and other processed foods that can elevate your levels of triglyceride and uric acid - a chemical associated with diabetes, gout, alcoholism, kidney disease and other health problems. Uric acid: Manage high uric acid with nutrition tip #11 Drink plenty of fluids to help flush uric acid from your body Drink a minimum of 3 and 1/2 liters of water daily. Water is a medium that aids the kidney to'strain' the impurities from your body. Uric acid: Manage high uric acid with nutrition tip #12 Also avoid high-protein weight-loss diets which can cause you to produce too much uric acid (hyperuricemia). Uric acid: Manage high uric acid with nutrition tip #13 Limit meat, poultry and fish - animal proteins are high in purine and this will result in high uric acid levels in the body Uric acid: Manage high uric acid with nutrition tip #14 Limit or avoid alcohol Alcohol interferes with the elimination of uric acid from your body. Drinking beer in particular has been linked to gout attacks. If you are prone to uric acid attacks, limit alcohol consumption to one drink three times a week. Uric acid: Manage high uric acid with nutrition tip #15 Choose complex carbohydrates Eat more whole grains, fruits and vegetables and fewer refined carbohydrates such as white bread, cakes and candy. Because foods rich in complex carbohydrates promote feelings of fullness, and prevent overeating and are useful in maintaining a healthy weight.
