Sir very good morning sir please tell me my mom have sugar so please tell me what do it eating so please tell me sir.
Mr. Lybrate-user, if your mother has diabetes then she should be on appropriate drug treatment to control blood sugar effectively. It is essential to achieve strict sugar control to prevent long term complications of diabetes in relation to eyes, peripheral blood vessels, lower limbs, kidney, heart and nerves. As regards the diet she should avoid sweets completely, avoid deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries, sweetened aerated drinks, fructose corn syrup containing products and high fat milk products. She should consume more of green leafy vegetables, salads and permitted fruits about 100 g a day. Total caloric intake has to be based on ideal body weight, blood sugar levels and extent of daily exercise. She should exercise for at least 1 hour a day.

My dad has sugar problem and also creation problem is der any solution for that at home and he frequently feels hungry.
if diabetes is well controlled all the symptoms like feeling more hungry or irritated can be reduced. A well controlled patient of diabetes should have fasting sugar closer to 100 mg, pp 150 to 160 mg/100 ml and hba1c% <7. If his diabetes is in control (with sugar as above), then all symptoms will be in check. Apart from appropriate drugs he should take a balanced but restricted diet and exercise daily for at least 1 hour. With best regards.

You can't directly stop medicine bcz already your body used to for medicine first you cut down dose that you can take 50 mcg. Observe yourself, is your body responding or not. If you r not getting any symptoms then you can take 50 mcg dose for a month do your report if the level are coming normal then you can again cut down to 25 mcg you should decrease your dose gradually to avoid sudden change.

But she should check her thyroid levels once in 6 months. Also avoid soy beans, soy containing products, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, radish, peanuts, mustard and coffee. Should consume more of green leafy vegetables and fruits. Use whole grain flour for chapati and roti. Exercise daily to avoid weight gain.

He also needs to do regular physical exercise, at least 8 hrs. Of sleep, drink enough fluid and avoid empty calorie foods and drinks. Please consult with a Dietician to know the proper diet menu for him.

Infertility - Is it only a Problem for Women?

Infertility - Is it only a Problem for Women?

Infertility is a medical condition in which the patient fails to conceive after one year of having unprotected sex. It is advisable that women who are above 35 years of age and often experience irregular menstrual cycles should consult a doctor on being unable to conceive within six months.

Is infertility a common issue?
Infertility has become a common problem for the new age women. Sedentary lifestyle and stress are believed to hamper the fertility of women nowadays. According to a report, about 6 percent women in US in the age group 15-44 years are infertile.

Infertility: It’s not just a woman’s problem
Infertility is not an issue with only women. Both, men and women can be infertile or are responsible for the condition. The process of reproduction requires mutual co-operation from both sexes. Therefore, they can together contribute towards infertility as well. It is wrong to blame the woman only. According to the 2002 National Survey of Family Growth data, it has been found that about 7.5 % men in the age group of 18-45 years (who have has sexual exposure) visited infertility clinics at least once in their lifetime. Of these men, about 18% were affected with male-related infertility issues.

Infertility in men: Men can suffer from infertility due to various factors. The infertility can be detected by analysis of the semen. A doctor can evaluate the concentration of the semen or determine the sperm count, the mobility of the sperm and its shape or morphology. These are important for fertility. Semen analysis can be hampered due to the following conditions:
1. Varioceles - The veins on the man’s testicles are unnaturally large and leads to overheating of the sperms
2. Diseases like diabetes, cystic fibrosis, trauma and infection.
3. Unhealthy lifestyle
4. Environmental toxins

Infertility in women: Women must have proper functioning of the reproductive organs to become fertile. The fallopian tubes, ovaries and uterus must be physically and physiologically fit for getting pregnant. A woman may get infertile due to following reasons:
1. Irregular periods that suggests the woman is not ovulating properly.
2. Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS)
3. Functional hypothalamic amenorrhea (FHA) or excessive physical or emotional stress causing missed periods
4. Diminished ovarian reserve (DOR) or inability of the ovary to produce sufficient eggs
5. Premature ovarian insufficiency: The ovary stops functioning properly before 40 years of age
6. Blocked, swollen or open fallopian tubes
7. Menopause 

If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a gynaecologist.

Mai diabetic hu fasting mai 180 rehta hai after meal 280. Medicine glynase mf le rha hu but koi fayda nahi kya karu.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
It is not as easy task to control blood sugar in the desired normal range. Whatever we eat is metabolized to sugar in the body to provide energy for our daily activities. For the absolute control, one has to monitor his / her blood sugar at regular intervals (self-monitoring of blood glucose? smbg). Though difficult, this can be done by a glucometer and keep a record. Get an idea of fasting sugar (fbs) and 2 hours after food (ppbs) and check before dinner and after every major food. The basic idea is to reduce the food intake to 1/3 of what you take now. The dictum of sugar control is diet, exercise, diet + medicine and at later stage medicine+ insulin will be needed. For sugar control there is the need for regular advice and follow up. Just one time consultation or advice is not enough to guide a diabetic in scientifically & medically correct manner. For giving you regular follow up you ask me privately with all details like your daily eating pattern and medicines you take. I assure you a proper guidance. If you keep in touch.

Treating Infertility Caused by PCOS With IVF

Treating Infertility Caused by PCOS With IVF

PCOS is an abbreviation for Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome. It is a problem that is caused in women when their hormones are out of balance. It affects menstrual periods and can even hinder conception when aggravated to an advanced stage. Many women having PCOS develop small cysts on their ovaries. These cysts might not be harmful, but they lead to hormonal imbalances. 

Common symptoms include:

  1. Gain of weight or Weight loss problems
  2. Acne
  3. Excess hair on body and face
  4. Irregularities in periods
  5. Fertility problems
  6. Depression

It is possible for most women with PCOS who fail to attain pregnancy easily to use other treatments to get pregnant. Using In vitro fertilization (IVF) is one such mode of treatment. The procedure is helpful if done within the age of forty. You should undergo IVF only in a high quality clinic under the supervision of an experienced doctor.

There is a considerable amount of risk of having a higher order multiple pregnancy due to treatment of PCOS infertility using injectable gonadotrophins. Recent developments have allowed the patients to maintain high rates of pregnancy while simultaneously controlling the risk of multiple pregnancy. A variant of the standard IVF treatment known as Blastocyst embryo transfer is useful in the control of multiple birth rates. Generally, success rates for IVF treatment in cases where infertility is caused due to PCOS is quite high.

IVF Protocols for PCOS
There are two simulation protocols that are commonly used with PCOS:

  1. Ganirelix with Lupron trigger protocol: Used to avoid ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome.
  2. PCOS down-regulation protocol

This protocol combines:

  1. Oral Contraceptive Pills
  2. Metformin

A calendar is followed for the down regulation protocol for PCOS. Before starting with Lupron, a dosage ( 500 mg, 3 times a day) of metformin is followed daily. After this, oral contraceptive pills are prescribed for around 21 days. Lupron coincides with the last 3 pills of birth control. 

Lupron is a subcutaneous injection of a medicine that is taken once daily. Simulation of the ovaries is initiated after 6 or 7 days without using pills. It is very important with polycystic ovary that the dose of FSH hormone is properly controlled and that the ovarian response is cautiously monitored. Over response to the treatment can cause ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome. This should be avoided.

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.
