Hi, I would not like to counsel you without the reports as I need to understand his case better before I can advise further. But seeing that the creatinine is so high, I feel that he needs to be on dialysis and a transplant will do him a world of good, but it has its own risks and complications.

My father felt all the symptoms of diabetes in 2014 and when checked blood sugar fasting it was 269 and pp 440. This was the first time when he came to know. It took him 10-15 days to bring sugar level normal. Since then I.e. More than 3 years it's normal. Fasting remains 85 and pp 105. He started weight lifting, treadmill, biking and elliptical daily in gym from that day and still doing. And he is having all types of foods. My question is can he lift heavy weights. Is he non-diabetic now. Is he a normal man now. His present age is 46. What tests do you recommend for him to certify he is normal and not a diabetic.

Regarding lifting of heavy weights - he should check with the gym trainer. Personally, I do not recommend lifting heavy weights. Although moderate weights to improve muscle strength is good. The most useful test is HbA1C test. If it comes as "non-diabetic" range and he is on anti-diabetic (anti-glycemic) meds then he can be certified as a "Controlled" Diabetic" The nature of certification depends on for what purpose it is required for.

Addison's Disease - What You Should Know About it

Addison's Disease - What You Should Know About it

While cold and cough are common, diseases like Addison’s disease are rare. It is also known as chronic adrenal insufficiency or hypocortisolism as it is a result of insufficient production of hormones like cortisol and aldosterone by the adrenal glands. This disease can affect men and women of any age.

There are two types of Addison’s disease. These are:

  1. Primary adrenal insufficiency: In this case, the adrenal glands themselves have a problem.
  2. Secondary adrenal insufficiency: If the hormone production in the adrenal glands is restricted by a problem that has started somewhere else like the pituitary gland, for example, it is known as secondary adrenal insufficiency.

Primary adrenal insufficiency is more common of the two. This could be triggered as a result of autoimmune diseases or a long lasting infection such as HIV, tuberculosis and some fungal infections. Cancer can also cause this type of Addison’s disease.

Secondary adrenal insufficiency is usually caused by a problem with the pituitary gland or the hypothalamus as they are responsible for the production of hormones that stimulate the adrenal glands. Damage caused to the pituitary gland by tumors or radiation and surgery can also interfere with hormone production. Prolonged and improper use of steroid hormones can also trigger this condition.

Addison’s disease has a very slow progression and its symptoms develop gradually over time. Some of these symptoms are:

  1. Weight loss and loss of appetite
  2. Extreme fatigue
  3. Hyperpigmentation
  4. Low blood pressure
  5. Craving for salt
  6. Nausea and diarrhea
  7. Pain in the abdomen and joint pains
  8. Irritability
  9. Depression
  10. Loss of body hair and sexual dysfunction in women

Treatment for Addison’s disease involves hormone replacement therapy. This aims at correcting the hormone levels in the body. Hormone replacement therapy includes oral corticosteroids and corticosteroid injections. The dosage of these steroids could vary depending on the situation. For example, the doctor may suggest a temporary high dosage when the patient is in a stressful condition. Along with this, sodium is also recommended especially during the summer months and while exercising. This medication must be taken regularly as skipping a single dose can be dangerous.

In some cases this condition can become life threatening. An addisonian crisis causes a drop in blood pressure, sugar and a spike in potassium levels in the body. This requires immediate medical attention and can be treated with intravenous injections of hydrocortisone, saline solution and sugar. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an endocrinologist..

It is not necessary that children will inherit diabetes from parents. If they are healthy and fit nothing will happen to them. It is better they eat bananas than all the junk and toxic food that is available in the market. Let them eat well and be active... they will be fine. And if you also reduce your diet and weight, your symptoms can also come down.
