My aunt suffering from thyroid? Whats it's major cause and what's its precautions? We can cure from that or not?

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Mr. Lybrate-user, by saying" suffering from thyroid" are talking about hypothyroidism? if so then the treatment is to give correct dose of thyroxine tablets daily. Dose will depend upon body weight and tsh levels. Plus patient has to avoid soy beans, soy containing products, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, radish, peanuts, mustard and coffee. Should consume more of green leafy vegetables, salads and fruits. Use whole grain flour for making chapati and roti, avoid refined flour like maida. Plus should exercise daily for at least 1 hour. This is a thyroxine deficiency disorder, hence supplement of that hormone is required daily, so there is no cure. Tablets have to be taken for lifetime.

Mr. Lybrate-user govind, there is nothing like stage I or 2 in diabetes. If you are on treatment then fasting should be closer to 100 mg, pp 150 to 160 mg and hba1c% <7. If your current treatment is achieving that, then it is good. Controlling blood sugar near normal is very essential to prevent or delay the onset of long term complications of diabetes.

I am a diabetic and daily taking Zorryl M3 Forte twice, Zeta50 once in morning and lantus insulin upto 40 unit. But even after taking all these medicine and insulin, my sugar level remains in the range of 160-180 in fasting. What else I have to do to maintain it in the range of 110-120. Even when, I take three bread in night along with vegetable, fasting sugar goes upto 180 and when I take only one bread it remains 160 or sometimes comes down to 155 in fasting. But when I take only Salad in dinner, I feel comfortable with sugar level 140 in fasting. Whether a diabetic person can survive with only salad in dinner without any grain food, if possible, please suggest.

For diabetes follow a diet low in carbohydrate, 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. Medicine and insulin will work better if you follow diet and exercise. You can have more of salad and protein and less of carbohydrate in dinner.

Diabetes and Depression

Diabetes and Depression

According to most experts, depression and diabetes have been intricately connected in a vicious cycle. While the prolonged and sustaining nature of diabetes directly makes one vulnerable to the bouts of depression, doctors tend to locate traces of depression in the family history of an individual in order to diagnose the roots of diabetes. It won't be too far-fetched to state that both causes as well as affects the other.

If you have diabetes, either type 1 or type 2, you have an increased risk of developing depression. And if you're depressed, you may have a greater chance of developing type 2 diabetes. The good news is that diabetes and depression can be treated together. And effectively managing one can have a positive effect on the other.

How Diabetes and Depression Correlated?                    
There are myriad ways in which diabetes affects depression and vice versa.

Firstly, tackling such a long drawn disease and its various pitfalls might cause a lot of anxiety to one and lead to depression. Whereas on the other hand, depression reduces the zeal to live and thus results in poor lifestyle choices which in turn causes weight gain, unhealthy food habits, physical inactivity. As we are well aware, all these have the potential to wreak havoc for any patient of diabetes. 

Similarly, diabetes ushers in various other health complications, adversely impacting one's productivity. This may cause depression in a lot of people. 

On the flipside, depression impedes one's ability and enthusiasm to work or communicate, this in turn intervenes with one's monitoring of diabetes. Since these two extremely malevolent diseases have such close connections, medical science recommends ways to grapple with both. The rigors of managing diabetes can be stressful and lead to symptoms of depression.

Diabetes can cause complications and health problems that may worsen symptoms of depression.

Depression affects your ability to perform tasks, communicate and think clearly. This can interfere with your ability to successfully manage diabetes.

Treatment: Depression is just like any other illness, it can be treated. Treatment can lift the depression and improve diabetes control.

Looking after your diabetes will help decrease the risk of getting depression. If you already have depression, good diabetes management will help lessen the negative impacts it can have. Depression is no different to any of the other complication of diabetes. It is a genuine illness for which you need to seek help and support from health professionals.

The treatment for depression and diabetes involves a coordinated approach that monitors both diabetes control and the symptoms of depression. It is about finding the treatment that works best for each person. For example, people with diabetes and mild depression may find that regular physical activity improves depressed moods and also helps control blood glucose levels.

Helping Yourself.

If you suspect you might have depression, take control of your health by:

  • Going to a doctor or other health professional
  • Getting involved in social activities
  • Engaging in regular moderate physical activity
  • Learning about depression and diabetes
  • Very particular about medicines prescribed for Diabetes
  • Eating healthily and including a wide variety of nutritious foods
  • Achieving and maintaining healthy weight
  • Limiting your alcohol intake
  • Getting help, support and encouragement from family and friends
  • Asking your doctor to check your blood pressure, cholesterol and blood glucose levels

Firstly, You need to know that medrol is a steroid and steroids are medicines with lots of side-effects. I am sure that your doctor would have started your mother on steroids because her asthmatic condition would have endangered her life and he would have been left with no choice but to start steroids. I respect his decision and would urge you also to understand the urgencies that we as doctors face to save our patients - sometimes taking calculated risks! As a next step, the doctor would try to taper and stop medrol as soon as possible. Secondly, please remember that in emergency life threatening conditions, insulin is the best choice medicine for all diabetics in the world. I say, categorically "the world" - because if your mother was been treated in USA - ever there the doctors would have given her insulin only! So please don't stop or substitute insulin for the time being. Once your mother is stable - there will be other choices.

Mr. Lybrate-user, hba1c% 6.8 shows good control of blood sugar, so you may continue the present treatment. Plus diet control and exercise also is equally important. There is no need for changing any medication.
