Yes it is possible. You need to consult an endocrinologist who will bring your blood sugars to optimal levels pre-conception with regular monitoring daily blood sugar levels and also HbA1c.

Hi! My dad is 63 years old. So this problem started last August, when we noticed that he is having some speech issue. It was like as if he is eating something and talking, when actually his mouth was completely empty. Then the frequency of this slurring increased in some weeks/months (can not recall). When we met our doctor, he advised to get an MRI done. On getting the MRI he concluded that it is because of diabetes and blood pressure that some muscles of the tongue are weak. Since november, my dad is controlling diabetes and blood pressure and has also lost 10 kgs (he was overweight, with strict diet and exercise he has lost 10 kgs and now weighs 80 kgs) So, the slurring problem increased and now its not slurring but lisping. We also noticed that his tongue is not able to touch the roof of the mouth. And there is always some burning sensation on some part of the tongue. We met a few renowned doctors but nothing was concluded. We met a neurologist, who recommended the following tests. MRI, diffused and contrast RNT THYROID ECHO ULTRASOUND OF THE NECK. All the above tests were normal. On meeting our neurologist the last time, he has given the following conclusions. He said - His tongue muscles are weak, And blood supply to the blood is not appropriate. And has given us some medicines. Although on his prescription he has written the following. D/d Multi infarct state e bulbar palsy Bulbar palsy onset AHC He has also written follow up to see for evolution/ evaluation of AHC disease. As you can see what he said and what he wrote was completely different. My question is I did my research on Ahc and bulbar palsy, yes it is very scary but some symptoms are not matching with the symptoms of Ahc and bulbar palsy. He also said - there is no test to conclude this disease, if nothing happens after having the given medicines. We will conclude that he is suffering from Ahc and bulbar palsy. Symptoms that differ His walking is perfect - daily walks for more than 7 kms His muscles are strong No problem with swallowing Please help me out in this.

Dear lybrate user, you can try consulting a dentist who hs done masters in oral medicine and radiology or in oral pathology. With aging tongue muscles tend to become weak n also mouth gets dry making them difficult to speak properly or swallow. Moistness of mouth also plays a role in speech. Wen a person loses mutiple teeth, the space available for tongue increases n tongue seems to noticably increase in size in older patients. This again causes difficulty in speech. With aging, weak muscle n nerves coupled with slight increased side tongue n absence of muliplt teeth or complete absence of teeth may cause incomplete control over tongue. Taste buds greatly reduce in number with aging causing bald tongue. Nutritional deficiency esp iron deficiency can cause bald tongue n inflamation easily.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. To check thyroid functions there is no specific time required. Also there is no need to go fasting. But it si better to get it checked before 10 am. Thanks.

Mr Satish, I am sure you must be already on treatment for both these conditions. If treatment is appropriate then blood sugar should be : Fasting closer to 100 mg and PP between 150 to 160 mg and HbA1c% <7. Similarly BP should be 130/80 mm of Hg or lower. Apart from drugs, you should exercise daily for 1 hour plus, take a restricted diet avoiding sweets, sugar and jaggery. Plus avoid junk foods, deep fried foods and pastries. consume more of green leafy vegetabbles and fruits. Also restrict salt intake to about 2.5 g a day.

Normal sgpt level ranges from 7 to 56 units. High levels of sgpt in the blood may indicate liver problems and damage, but they may also be elevated due to strenuous activity. Please do the following 1. Stop drinking alcohol 2. Reduce salt intake 3. Eat fresh friuts and vegetables 4. Exercise daily 5. Quit smoking 6. Stop taking medicataion not prescribed by doctor 7. Get few more blood test and consult doctor for proper treatment of what is causing these condition. High triglycerides can also be manged by changing your life style by the above advise and losing weight, if not reduced consult to get treatment for high triglyceride level. Take care.

Hello You need not worry. You need to take precautions as you have family history. Low sugar levels can be due to improper meal timing. Take 3 main meals and 2 side meals. Don't skip breakfast. Sleep for 7-9 hours per night. Exercise regularly. Avoid fried foods, sweets, carbonated drinks and processed foods. Include whole grains, sprouts, seasonal fruits and vegetables. Avoid mango, cheeku, banana, arbi and zimikand. Take flaxseed powder 1 tsp with lukewarm water on empty stomach. Take green tea 3-4 cups a day. Drink plenty of water. Thank you

Possibility is that her sugar's are grossly out of control so she is feeling weak or may be medicines are not suitable to her. Get her all investigations like cbc-esr/bsf/bspp/urine r/lipid profile/sgot/sgpt/s. Alkline phosphtase/hba1c.

Hi, My wife is 64 yrs. She is diabetic for the past 15 years and sugar is under control. She also takes one tablet (Telma) for BP. We monitor her BP and sugar regularly. While taking BP readings sometimes the monitor indicates" irregular heart beat detected" Please tell us what exactly it means/indicates.

Thanks for the query. I have gone through the details given. Your overall information is very general. There is no mention of actual readings of any of the parameters, like blood glucose (fasting, PP & HbA1c%), BP readings and pulse rate. Without those details it is difficult to comment. If she has any symptoms related heart other than irregular beats, better to get an ECG as well as an echo cardiogram done. You have mentioned diabetes is in control, but no details are there. It essential to maintain FBG<100 mg. PP 160 to 170 mg & HbA1c%<7. Thanks.
