You can have apple, guava and papaya.. Not more than 1 per day.. If your diabetes is well controlled, you can have any fruit in small amount..

Hello, mantoux test is not worth doing now. Sputum for afb may not be positive always, for sputum test to be positive there should be at least 10 to the power 4 organisms to get detected. So we need to go along with ct scan. If you are from metropolitan city you can try to get gene expert test on sputum which is more sensitive than microscopy and gives result in 2 hrs. Other is sputum culture and sputum culture for tuberculosis. Sputum for gram stain we need to give antibiotics and see for response.

Mr. Lybrate-user, I am sure by now you must have learnt about diabetes in detail. It is (t2) caused by either due to deficiency of insulin or resistance to action or both together. Obesity or over weight and inactivity are contributing factors. World over treatment of diabetes (t2) is done by either oral anti-diabetic drugs and/or insulin. There is no other option. As regards prevention, possible only when a person is in a prediabetes state. Once disease has developed then it can only be controlled by drugs as mentioned above. Even though, a lot of claims are made regarding controlling diabetes and even curing it by some alternate medical practices, best control is only possible with modern medicines. Thanks.

What are your fasting, pp sugar levels and hba1c%? if diabetes is in check then such problems normally do not develop. Plus you are obese with a bmi of 35.92kg/m2 (normal <23kg/m2). Unless you work on weight reduction it is difficult to control sugar and consequent problems. On the penis the marks are due to (possibly) fungal infection, take tab gocan 150 once a week for 8 weeks and also apply candid b cream locally twice a day. One way to take care of your excess weight is to consider bariatric surgery. Which will also control diabetes too.

Will a person with type 2 diabetes under control end up with the need for insulin?

MBBS
General Physician, Mumbai
Will a person with type 2 diabetes under control end up with the need for insulin?
Dear lybrateuser, - It will depend on the blood sugar control by diet, exercise & oral medication - if the blood sugar remains within the acceptable limit for the individual then insulin may nit be required - if despite following a healthy lifestyle & taking a combination of oral medicines it rises then insulin is required to bring it under control.

Hello, My mother is having thyroid and blood anemia due to which her HB remains low. She is taking daily one dilzem tablet for heart beat function control and one thyroxine early morning as advice by doctor . Now recently she got some severe teeth pain and dentist advice her for root canal treatment of that teeth. As per HB test conducted today her hemoglobin is only 4.5. Request your advice whether we can go ahead with root canal treatment for teeth or should wait for HB to be little normal. Is there any risk to undergo root canal treatment at present position. Dentist told to consult physician and take advice to go ahead. Hence request your advice. My mother is 52 years old. Thanks!

Lybrate-user, root canal treatment (rct) is a surgical procedure, so it is better that before any such procedure blood picture improves. In fact hb 4.5g/100 ml, is too low. It may need packed cell (rbcs) transfusion. Or else should immediately start on iron preparations either capsules or if needed then injections. Hb g% should come to at least 8 to 10 g/100 ml, then operative procedure may be considered. Whether rct is done or not, she has to start on iron therapy immediately, becaus of very severe anemia. Such a condition will put severe strain on her heart function, thanks.

I am suffering from high sugar.
How to get control and full Treatment. Please help.
If you have diabetes then appropriate treatment has to be initiated to control blood sugar effectively. Because high blood sugar can damage most of the vital organs like eyes (retina), kidneys, small and large blood vessels, heart, lower limbs and nerves. To suggest any treatment I need to know fasting, pp sugar levels, hba1c%, dietary pattern, extent of daily exercise and drugs being taken with dosage. It will be better if you come in a private conversation with all the deatils then I will be able to guide specifically. In this communication we are supposed to give only general guidelines np prescriptions.

Ayurveda,
You are still young, imbalance due to age factor still you take some kind of multivitamin for weakness and try to use joint pain killer (ayurvedic) to reduce pain and take support of calcium, that's it. Hope for your long life.
