I have a border line sugar (fasting 107) and pre-diabetic condition (blood glucose level 6.3). Increeased cholestrol and triglycerides. Increased thryroid, uti 15-20 pus cells and esr 44. Do I need to start medicine for diabetes?

General Physician (AM)
Alternative Medicine Specialist, Chandigarh
Having diabetes makes high blood pressure and other heart and circulation problems more likely, because diabetes damages arteries and makes them targets for hardening (atherosclerosis). Atherosclerosis can cause high blood pressure, which if not treated, can lead to blood vessel damage, stroke, heart failure, heart attack, or kidney failure. You can consult me in private for detailed treatment which is available in biochemic system of medicine depending upon symptomatically. Eatng lots of garlic. If you cant have it get it homeopathically allium sativum (biochemic) nat phos 30x, avoid all types of fats and red meat.

I am 53 years old male and diabetic (120- 150 range Post Prondial). Taking tablets. Can I consume beer (one bottle) once or twice in a week?

MD - Consultant Physician
General Physician, Mumbai
Your diabetes is under control. Beer will increase your blood sugar but I do not think consuming it once or twice a week is bad for you as long as it does not exceed that and your diabetes and body weight are okay.

My mom has a tumor in her uterus. I admitted her in ESI Joka hospital. All taste have completed but she has sugar so Dr. can't operation yet. Fasting sugar is around 136 and pp is 240 so Dr. give her insulin injections 3 time in a day. I am in great tension about giving her insulin injections. Everyone say that if one time start insulin then she will have to take insulin for life time. Please any Dr. suggest me that insulin is better for her or I should try other treatments for normal sugar.

Dear lybrate-user, Doctor usually start insulin to tackle crisis like trauma, surgery, or emergency caeserian delivery etc. Once that crisis is over, patient can be shifted to oral medicine. So do not worry she can be managed on oral medicine after the surgery. I wish for rapid recovery of your mother. All d best!

Tips to cut down on sugary foods

Tips to cut down on sugary foods

Sugary foods and drinks can cause tooth decay, especially if you eat them between meals. The longer the sugary food is in contact with the teeth, the more damage it can cause. The sugars found naturally in whole fruit are less likely to cause tooth decay because the sugars are contained within the structure of the fruit. Sugars are also added to a wide range of foods, such as sweets, cakes, biscuits, chocolate, and some fizzy drinks and juice drinks. These are the sugary foods that we should cut down on.

Tips to cut down on sugars

For a healthy, balanced diet, cut down on foods and drinks containing added sugars.
Instead of sugary fizzy drinks and juice drinks, go for water or unsweetened fruit juice
Swap cakes or biscuits for a currant bun, scone or some malt loaf with low-fat spread.
If you take sugar in hot drinks or add sugar to your breakfast cereal, gradually reduce the amount until you can cut it out altogether.
Rather than spreading jam, marmalade, syrup, treacle or honey on your toast, try a low-fat spread, sliced banana or low-fat cream cheese instead.
Check nutrition labels to help you pick the foods with less added sugar, or go for the low-sugar version.
Try halving the sugar you use in your recipes - it works for most things except jam and ice cream.
Choose wholegrain breakfast cereals, but not those coated with sugar or honey.

You are having type 1 diabetes and are on the correct regimen of insulin. type 1 diabetics require to compulsorily take insulin thrice a day. although there are insulins avaliable which are effective for the entire day, just taking that one shot wont be enough in your case and you may land up with complications. People who are on one shot of insulin in a day are having a completely different type of diabetes, one in which tablets are also useful.

I am 54 years and diabetic since last 3 months. I take 2 glycomet 250mg, one in the morning and one in the night. I tested my blood sugar afew days ago and fasting is 117 and pp is 127. Glycosylated sugar reading is 6.8 and mean blood glucose is165mg/dl. I feel that this average blood glucose is very high under medication. I walk twice a day for 40 minutes each time. Please could you advice me if dosage needs to be increased?

Your blood sugar levels seems to be quite ok. If you tweak your diet a bit more, you can bring down your hba1c to less than 6.5% which is perfect. Keep up the good work!

You have a bmi of 27.73 kgs/m2, signifying over weight. The efforts to reduce weight will be successful if your tsh levels are between 3 to 4 milli units. So please see that first. Because unless hypothyroidism is fully controlled, weight reduction is not going to happen. Plus you have to take a restricted diet that provides calories based on ideal body weight (60 kgs), extent of daily exercise. You have to do a workout of at least 1 hour a day. Avoid too many carbs, sweets, and increase intake of proteins and low fat foods. That will help. Thanks for the question.

I have diabetes. I am trying to control it but its increasing day by day.What can i do?
Following are the tips to prevent onset/or control diabetes 1-losing extra weight:-is the most significant thing which can make a big difference to your health. It helps lower your blood pressure and cholesterol too. Waist of more than 80 cm in women & 90 cm in man are at risk 2- constant and regular food timings:- it will improve your metabolic activity and helps reducing your weight. 3- split your meals and eating in moderate amount:-splitting your meals into 3-4 times per day (including snacks) and eating in fair amount, improves your metabolic rate as the food you take is not concentrated at one time. 4- no long gaps and skipping of meals:-never miss out breakfast. 5- no overeating:-never eat in a bulk on one time remember to eat your food slowly, chew well. 6- proper exercise and work outs:-exercise is a fast way to trim down calories, extra weight and controlling glucose level. Brisk walking for 30 min. Atleast five times a week is the best. You can also try cycling, swimming, dancing. Timings for exercise should be fixed and regular. Do not eat right away after a workout. 7-constant and regular timings for medication 8-avoid fried foods, meat, fats and sweets. 9- take high-fibre and complex carbohydrates:-like oats. Add whole grain foods in your diet. Avoid white bread, pasta, pizza, candies, and snacks. Instead include high-fiber carbohydrates like wheat bran, flaxseed and methi seeds to your wheat flour. This will increase fibre in your diet. 10-drink enough fluids:-keep your body well hydrated. 11. Fresh vegetables and fruits:- these contain a lot of minerals as well as nutrients. Include sprouts in the diet as they are easily digestible.

Mr. Lybrate-user kumar, primarily he should achieve a very strict blood sugar control like fasting around 100 mg, pp 150 to 160 mg, hba1c%<7. Get his feet examined by a competent diabetologist and a podiatrist (diabetic foot specialist). Use soft or specially designed foot wear. Avoid injuris to feet. He should examine his feet every day to see if any additional problems have come up. Secondly if need be get a full assessment for peripheral neuropathy and blood supply to lower limb by a colour doppler test. Neglecting the feet can be very dangerous. Thanks.

If you are already on oral medicines & your sugar levels are as mentioned, I feel the best option would be insulin. However, if you have been diagnosed with type 2 diabetes just now, you could try tab janumet xr cp 50/1000 once in the morning along with tab voglinorm 0.3 mg thrice daily with meals. Repeat fbs & ppbs after 2 weeks.

It is lower levels of glucose in blood. And exercise in such patients will tend to increase glucose level in blood again..
