Thank you for the query. As per the details provided, your mother is 51 years of age and a diabetic for 6 years. A sugar level of 485 mg% is definitely undesirable, and in your mother's case it has shot up probably due to her infection (cough +cold). Please get her sugar profile done (fasting and 2 hrs post prandial blood sugar and hba1c). Since she has an infection, it will be difficult to control her sugar without treating the infection. It will be preferable to maintain her sugar between 140-180 mg% at this phase. Since she is having nausea diabetic ketoacidosis (a condition arising due to high sugar levels) must be kept in mind. Glimeperide and metformin are good medications, but since they are long acting drugs, in the background of an infection they may cause hypoglycemia. Sometimes to manage high blood sugar levels, temporarily, short acting insulin may be used. Once the sugar levels are controlled, the oral drugs may be restarted. It is advisable to monitor her sugar levels at home, if possible. In the long term, a 1400 kcal/day, refined carbohydrate and saturated fat restricted diet is preferred. Regards

Since when are you noticing this change? It appears you have developed diabetes, mostly T2. Please get a HbA1c% test done, which will give an idea about whether this phenomenon has been there for a long time. Looking at your height and weight you have a BMI of 25.45 kgs/M2, showing a mild overweight. You need to exercise regularly and also reduce weight to about 66 kgs. There is a need to take antidiabetic drug treatment. In this communication we are supposed to give only general guidelines, no prescriptions are to be given. So please come in a private conversation with all the details. Thanks.

Mr. lybrate-user, There is brand by name "Mixtard 30/70 InnoLet 3 ml injection. Usually concerned company persons do visit and explain how to use the Insulin Pens. So while buying it from the local chemist ask him to send the particular company representative to demonstrate the usage. The cartridges are 3 ml while vial is bigger. So please get all the details before switching over. Pens are definitely much easier to use. Thanks.

Hi if one has diabetes, then first thing is to start treatment with appropriate drugs, which may be oral anti diabetics or insulin or both together depending on the need and severity of blood sugar levels. Then the person has to take restricted but balanced diet, that provides exact amount of calories based on ideal body weight, blood sugar levels and extent of daily exercise. Plus daily one hour exercise is also a must. As regards the foods to be avoided: - avoid sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries, high fat milk products, highly processed food products, sweetened aerated drinks and fructose corn syrup containing products. Consume more of green leafy vegetables. Salads, permitted fruits (about 100 g a day). Use whole grain products avoid refined flour like maida. Refrain from alcohol and smoking. In other words adapt a modified life style.

Diabetes - How Can You Control its Affect on Your Eyes?

MBBS, MS - Ophthalmology
Ophthalmologist
Ask Free Question
Diabetes is a scourge that has been spreading like wildfire across the globe. It is one of the major public health concerns of the modern era. Diabetes not only causes damage to your internal organs but will also take a toll on your eyes if left unchecked. Retinopathy, glaucoma, cataracts and blurry vision are common phenomena accompanying diabetes.

You may not notice it at first. Symptoms can include:

Blurry or double vision

Rings, flashing lights, or blank spots

Dark or floating spots

Pain or pressure in one or both of your eyes

Trouble seeing things out of the corners of your eyes

Thus Comprehensive Dilated Eye Exam plays an important role to detect it.

Here are some common Diabetic Eye Problems:

Blurry Vision: Do things turn blurry for you at times? Well it is not your glasses which are at fault but your high blood sugar count swelling up the lens within your eye and changing your ability to see. In order to correct your vision, you need to try bringing your sugar level back to the optimal range, which is 70 to 130 milligrams per deciliter. Do call on a doctor if the situation persists or deteriorates further.

Cataracts: Your eye lens is just like a camera that enables you to see through it by focusing on a particular object. If you have cataract, your otherwise clear lens gets shrouded a layer making it opaque and cloudy. You tend to face difficulties in the form of glares, blurred or clouded vision, and blind spots among other problems. Diabetics are prone to acquiring cataract much earlier than others, with the condition worsening subsequently. They are removed via surgery where your doctor substitutes your hazy lens with a new artificial one.

Glaucoma: You eye transmits images to your brain through the optic nerve. Pressure may build up within the optic nerve resulting in damage and ultimately causing total or partial blindness. This is a fairly common disorder with diabetics and a large number of cases pertaining to blindness due to diabetes are caused by this. Usually, glaucoma can be treated with laser, surgery, eye drops or medicines. It is important to visit a doctor as it can help stop the progression of the disorder much earlier.

Diabetic Retinopathy: The retina is a cluster of cells behind your eyes that absorbs light and converts them into images that are sent to the brain via your optic nerve. High blood sugar count can actually wreak havoc on the tiny blood vessels within your retina giving rise to diabetic retinopathy. Symptoms may include blurry vision, seeing spots, blind spots and difficulty in low light or night time. Retinopathy can cause you to progressively go blind and thus it is imperative that you go for periodic check-ups and keep your diabetes under control.

Control and Prevention

If you have diabetes, you are not doomed to develop diabetic eye disease. Although you are at risk, you have the ability to control your diabetes so your vision is not compromised. Controlling diabetes requires you to monitor your blood sugar levels regularly. Follow some steps to help you control and preserve your vision:

Taking your Medicines regularly as prescribed by your doctor. Skipping of medication may leads to irregular control and is more hazardous.

Eating Right food is essential when trying to prevent or control diabetes. Eat a diet that is high in nutrients, low in fat and moderate in calories. A high-fiber diet with low glycaemic index foods (slow-release carbohydrates) will keep blood sugar steady and make you feel full. Although you do not need to eliminate sugar completely, you must limit sugar to a small serving. The good news is that as you cut sweets, your cravings will change and you will naturally desire more healthy foods.

Keep your A1C level under 7%: A1C is a test you have during a visit to your endocrinologist to determine how well-controlled your diabetes has been during the previous 2-3 months. Keeping your blood glucose in this target range means less damage to the delicate blood vessels around your eyes.

Control blood pressure and Cholesterol Levels: People with diabetes have a greater chance of having high blood pressure and Cholesterol, which can cause eye blood vessel damage.

Regular Physical Exercise can help you control your blood sugar, increase fitness and reduce your risk for heart disease and nerve damage. You must track your blood sugar before, during and after exercise to prevent hypoglycaemia.

Annual comprehensive eye exams: If you are pre-diabetic or diabetic, it is even more important to have Complete Dilated eye exam to initially get baseline recordings of the eye conditions and then regular yearly follow-up visits to monitor changes in your vision. If you notice blurred vision and you have had diabetes for a length of time, it might be a signal you need to keep tighter control of your glucose levels.
