HI, It is difficult to tell the exact duration. In some , the deposition may occur fast and in some it may be very slow. It also depends of the nature of the food intake. The more the intake of fats, the more faster is its deposition and blockage of the arteries.

Diabetes - The rising epidemic

MBBS, DNB, Diploma Dyslipidemia, CCEBDM, CCMTD

Diabetes - The rising epidemic

India is now in the midst of a diabetes epidemic, with an adult prevalence rate of nine per cent and almost 69 million people living with diabetes. In another 15 years, the figure is expected to rise to 101 million. In all this, more than 90 percent of cases are lifestyle-induced.

Individuals with diabetes do not have any symptoms for long periods of time and may have complications at the time of diagnosis. Common examples such as retinopathy (blindness), nephropathy (kidney disease), neuropathy (nerve damage) and diabetic foot (gangrene and amputations in extreme cases) affect a large proportion of individuals with diabetes. Approximately a third of those with diabetes are known to develop retinopathy. Diabetes is also known to increase the risk of cardiovascular diseases (heart attack and stroke); nearly half of those with diabetes die of heart attack.

A bad lifestyle is what propels this epidemic while an inadequate response from the health system results in debilitating complications. The staggering increase in cases of diabetics and prediabetics has been attributed to lifestyle changes as a result of rapid and unplanned urbanisation, an ageing population, a sedentary lifestyle and increasing consumption of unhealthy food, especially modern processed foods. Lack of opportunistic screening delays diagnosis while poor access to care and medicines, information asymmetry between doctors and patients, and a paucity of well-trained human resource, impede evidence-based management of diabetes.

Health promotion strategies

Prevention remains central in halting the current pace of the diabetes epidemic. Our focus should be on both individual and policy-level interventions. Health promotion strategies should be aimed at maintaining normal body weight by improving physical activity and following a balanced and healthy diet. Evidence from the [INTERNATIONAL] Diabetes Prevention Program (DPP) shows that small reductions in weight by the moderate-intensity activity of at least 150 minutes per week and reduced fat consumption on most days prevented progression to diabetes by 58 percent among those with prediabetes.

In general, brisk walking for at least 30 minutes a day and following a healthy diet every day which has at least 3-5 servings of locally available and inexpensive fruits and vegetables, and less refined sugar and saturated fat can prevent or postpone the occurrence of diabetes. Doing yoga may also help prevent diabetes; in individuals with diabetes, it may even help them have better control of blood sugar. In addition, every adult above 30 years should be screened for diabetes and hypertension during a planned or unplanned visit to a physician or hospital.

Policy measures also call for reinforcement of health systems. Higher taxation on sugar-sweetened beverages and high-fat junk foods and planning urban infrastructure to promote physical activity have become all the more imperative now.

Diabetes is no longer a disease predominantly affecting the rich and is fast spreading to rural communities. The poor are even more vulnerable. Thus, India has a population where the number of people with diabetes has increased substantially over time and is set to continuously grow; a large number of people disabled by complications, and an equivalent number who are unaware of the condition.

Early diagnosis and prevention is the key to controlling the disease and minimise the risk of disability. In this, we need a multi-pronged approach that involves collaboration among national leaders, clinicians, public health researchers and allied health professionals.

I have hypothyroid so I should not eat peanuts but I am missing nutrition values. What is the substitute of peanuts?

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
lybrate-user, If your TSH is very well controlled (3 to 4 mU/L) then occasionally taking peanuts is fine. You can take egg white, dairy products, as a substitute. Other pulses are a comparatively good source of proteins. Most important is to avoid soy beans and soy containing products. Others are not such a problem. Thanks.

Hello doctor, I am 26 year old female. Since two months I m not feeling well. Went to doctor he said I have high bp. But said that he can't prescribe medicine for bp because it's not right to use in this age. I had anxiety problem last month. This month I have no anxiety problem. But the problem is I am unable to burp after having meals. I have undergone sugar, cholesterol, haemoglobin and thyroid tests when doctor asked me to undergo. Except for low haemoglobin and thyroid everything was normal. I am using thyronorm 25 mg tablet now. Haemoglobin is 9.5 the problem is I have to walk everyday for 30 mins. But I am unable to walk because of dizziness. I come back to home within 10 mins. I am also having gas problem. Unable to burp and cannot resist hunger. Sometimes palpitations occurs whenever burp is coming. I m worried about my health doctor. Please tell me whether anything is serious. I want to continue walking for 30 mins and start good exercises. But unable to. Eagerly waiting for your reply.

you should be avoid bad habits . Avoid stress. Some Relax during work. Drink more water, high-carbohydrate foods such as potatoes, rice, pasta and bread. You can take Nutrient-rich foods that improve your health may also benefit your thyroid gland, antioxidant-rich fruits and vegetables more plenty of water: Blueberries, tomatoes, bell peppers, and other foods rich in antioxidants can improve overall health and benefit the thyroid gland. Eating foods high in B vitamins, like whole grains, may also help. Selenium: Tiny amounts of selenium are needed for enzymes that make thyroid hormones to work properly. Eating selenium-rich foods, such as sunflower seeds or Brazil nuts, can be beneficial. Tyrosine: This amino acid is used by the thyroid gland to produce T3 and T4. Taking a supplement may help, avoid oily foods,junk foods, go for walk. Tests every 3 to 6 months.

At the moment there is no cure. If you can afford put her on insulin pump. At least she will be relieved of pricks and diabetes will be controlled more effectively. In future there is hope on stem cell therapy, results uptill now are encouraging.

I am having type 2 diabetes since last 14 years. My latest FBS is 124 and PP2 reading is 165. HBA1C is 7.4. The medication taken by me is Gemer 2 before breakfast and dinner, Tenglyn 20 before breakfast and Pioglit 15 before lunch. I also do 45 minutes of brisk walking and exercise daily. I also have a diet as recommended by a dietician. Please advise as to whether any change in the medication is required to get the target HBA1C of less than 7.0.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Mr. Lybrate-user, looking at the details provided, it is possible to reduce your hba1c% <7, by just increasing your daily exercise by a few minutes and also by adujusting daily intake marginally. There is no need to add any additional drug. You are really maintaining blood sugar levels quite well. Keep it up. With regards.
