Hello, It is difficult give the dosage based on the information given. If you are on Glargine 40 units at night, then oral antidiabetes drugs plus another combination like Wosulin 30/70 (it is 30 /70 not 30/50), it is a bit odd. Because you are already on a long acting compound. So ideally there should be a short acting one to check post breakfast and post lunch surge. Another aspect the mentioned glucose levels are not too high, therefore Glargine and oral drugs should be enough to give a better control Ideally fasting target should be closer to 100 mg & PP 150 to 160 mg. Plus HbA1c% <6.8. Thanks.

Mr. Lybrate-user, it is difficult to predict whether sub clinical hypothyroidism will revert to normally thyroid. But most often subclinical hypothyroidism does become an overt hypothyroidism in about fem months to a year or so.

For all your problems your short time sugar levels should be within normal range like in different time of day on getting up after food and during sleeping hours. For which consultation and advice with your doctor, repeated follow up, monitoring,proper medication, diet and exercise is a must. Once the readings are proper long term control like HbA1c should be examined to find good control. Erectile Dysfunction sometimes is a complication of uncontrolled and long duration diabetes and may be corrected by a diabetologist or a urologist. Consult them for this problem Viagra has to be taken only on advice of your physician which may help in sexual performance but has no role in having a baby.

Hi when we have hypo thyrodism can we have spinach in our diet? As it is rich in protein?
Lybrate-user, spinach is not very rich in protein, a small cup of spinach gives about 1 g of protein. Raw vegetables contain fiber, vitamins (b complex, vit c etc) and some protein and fat. Water content is very high. In hypothyroidism it can be consumed. Thanks.

What would happen if we intake expire diabetes medicines. (Not for me. Is about man aged 52)
Hello, No one should take medicines past expiry. Just like you will not consume food past expiry. Two things may happen - either the drug becomes ineffective and will not work, or the drug changes into something more toxic and may cause harm. I hope this answer has helped you Thank you.

Can a diabetic person take dates? Dates are known to give many benefits to human body but are these good enough for a diabetic person?

Khajur (Dates) help control sugar cravings, and they are low on the glycemic index. The carbohydrates in dates provide instant energy, and the high fiber contained in dates is good for digestion. Dates are loaded with anti-oxidants and are fat free and cholesterol free, which is good for any health-conscious individual, not just diabetics. Researches show that a soluble fibre is present in dates. This soluble fibre decreases the absorption of cholesterol by the body cells. Glucose is absorbed by the small intestine. Thus it is concluded that the level of blood sugar is not increased if a diabetic consumes dates within a prescribed limit. Your feedback matters. Thank-you.

Artificial Insemination - Are there Any Risks Associated with it

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology, MBBS
Gynaecologist, Delhi
Artificial Insemination - Are there Any Risks Associated with it

These days, infertility is a rising problem. The branch of gynaecology has successfully discovered a variety of procedures, which are helpful in conceiving in an artificial manner. These are known as Artificial Reproductive Techniques (ARTs). Artificial insemination is one of them. It is often termed as intrauterine insemination, which is used as an effective treatment of infertility worldwide.

This process helps the couple in conceiving by inserting the sperm directly into the womb of the woman.  These days, most of the couples who are unable to conceive prefer to go through this process rather than going for adoption. One of the major reasons behind the immense popularity of this treatment procedure is its good success record.

There are several risks associated with this process that one should know before opting for this procedure for having a baby of their own.

  1. Multiple births because of fertility medication: When the process of artificial insemination is carried out by using the fertility medication, there are immense chances that the mother gives birth to more than one child at a time. It can be twins or even triplets. The problem associated with multiple births is that it might contribute to complications like miscarriage or premature delivery. In case of multiple births, babies are usually not healthy and they are more prone to die in the first week of birth, which is very unfortunate for the parents. Gestational diabetes is also one of the consequences that can affect the mother during pregnancy.

  2. Ovarian Hyperstimulation Syndrome: It is not a common issue, but potentially a very serious complication. In some cases, the ovaries of a woman get swollen because of the fertility medication given during the artificial insemination process. Swelling causes symptoms like nausea, abdominal cramps, vomiting and bloating. Usually, the symptoms of OHSS include shortness of breath and chest pain that occur four to five days after the use of fertility medication. One should immediately contact the doctor, in case they notice similar kinds of symptoms during their fertility treatment.

In most of the cases when the doctor is unable to figure out the reason behind the infertility of a couple, the only alternative they suggest is the process of artificial insemination. Artificial insemination is quite an affordable and non-invasive method fertility treatment, which is preferred by thousands of couples every year. There are certain risks in this medical process and it is recommended to consult an expert gynaecologist.

TSH can vary between early morning and evening values. Even in the normal range that varies among the laboratories higher normal value is 25 times the lower normal value. So please do not be bothered about these variations. Having said that it seems that you may need thyroid medication after thorough clinical evaluation by an Endocrinologist. You can meet DM Endocrinology doctor for the initial evaluation. The idea is to adjust the dose of medication that is best for you.

I'm diabetes patient .I've many injuries from last year? please help me someone.

I'm diabetes  patient .I've  many  injuries from last year? please help me someone.
Hye, thanks for the query. You need to maintain good blood sugar levels to avoid any complications due to uncontrolled diabetes. For a diabetic it is best advised to have a diet planned as per the sugar levels, lifestyle and history. Though you can follow some guidelines - the sugar levels will fluctuate depending on what you ate or did not eat, stress levels and activity levels. You have to try and manage a balanced carb intake. Have small frequent meals. Do not fast for long hours. You have to eat 3 main and 3 mid meals. Your diet must include whole grains, seasonal fruits, vegetables, small amounts of nuts and dairy and pulses or dals or lean meats like chicken or fish and egg. Starchy vegetables need to be planned into the diet. Avoid a very heavy meal at one time. Avoid fruit juices, aerated drinks or sugarcane juice, honey, jaggery or sugar. Avoid junk foods. Exercise and stay active. Avoid exercise if sugar levels are above 250 mg/dl. Do not attempt to try out too many remedies as you could go into hypoglycaemia. Sleep well. It's all a matter of discipline.

I am suffering from sugar diabetes from 2 years my health is very Dow. And blood pressure fluctuates low please help me.
Hello, Thanks for the query. Diabetes can be very effectively controlled with appropriate treatment with drugs, plus diet control and regular exercise. Since you have diabetes for over 2 years, I am sure there must be regular treatment going on. In that case we will have to look at the present treatment, plus your diet and extent of exercise. As there is absolutely no information given about blood glucose levels (fasting, Pp & HbA1c%), plus current treatment, dietary pattern extent of exercise etc. There is no way to help. So please come back with the relevant information in a private conversation, then I will be able to guide specifically. Thanks.
