Dear lybrate user, one of the major nutritional substance required for human body is carbohydrate. We take carbohydrate in the form of rice, wheat, sugar etc. The complex molecules of carbohydrate are broken down into simple glucose molecules during digestion & released in the blood stream to be absorbed by the muscle cells. Muscle cells utilise the glucose molecules to release energy by breaking down those glucose molecules. Insulin hormone plays a vital role in the absorption of the glucose molecules by the muscle cells. In abnormal conditions, either due to less production of insulin or due to resistance to insulin, the process of absorption of glucose by the muscles comes to a stand still. The glucose molecules remains in the bloodstream which results in the increase in the blood sugar level. The failure of utilisation of the glucose molecules by the muscle cells results in production of less energy than normal condition. This is externally manifested as the fatigue & tiredness of the patient. This excess amount of blood sugar compels the kidney to function more than normal level in order to excrete the blood sugar molecules through urine. As a result the patient suffers from frequent urination. This abnormal condition is clinically known as diabetes mellitus. Once a patient is diagnosed with diabetes he has to take regular medicine to keep his blood sugar level within normal limits. Take homoeopathic mother tincture gymnema sylvestra q, 30 drops, thrice daily, after meals, in a cup of water. Along with intake of medicines you need to walk at least 1 hour daily without any interval. In order to decrease the intake of carbohydrate in your diet you should avoid rice, sweet dishes, fruits, cold drinks, fast foods, alcoholic beverages, potato etc.

I am taking 100 thyroxin. For thyroid. Can I stop taking ? Thanks.

PGDHM, PGCDM, MD - Internal Medicine, MBBS
General Physician,
Hello Hypothyroid is a disease which is due to deficiency / less secreation of thyroid hormones from the gland. We supplement the same hormone from outside in terms of tablets which you are taking so do not discontinue the medicine , keep taking it as ongoing and check TSH level regularly, if there is any fluctuations in TSH level, your dosage of Thyroxin needs to be readjasted and modified. Thanks Dr J Rangwala

Hi I hope she has got her iron studies test done to confirm that she has iron deficiency anaemia. If yes, then she needs to have lots of green leafy vegetables, pulses like rajma, peas, beans, pistachios (in limited quantity). Your mother needs diabetic dose adjustment or change as her blood sugar are uncontrolled. Regular walking for atleast 20 min a day is important.

I am a diabetic since last 6 years. I am too fat. I tried many medication but nothing worked. Prescribe some medicine for normal daily life.

I gather that you want help for managing obesity. First thing you need to ensure is that your blood sugar remains under check. Eat lots of fibres, avoid fatty food. Exercise daily. If you are morbidly obese, ypu may go for bariatric surgery to reduce weight.

Mr. lybrate-user, Diabetes affects small and large blood vessels. Affection to small blood vessels causes multiple problems including erectile dysfunction. This can happen even with well controlled glucose levels. But if persistent hyperglycemia is there then ED is bound to occur. Hence, primary need is to achieve strict blood glucose control and secondly if there is need certain drugs may be needed to over come the problem of ED. Thanks.

Fluctuating blood sugar touching 450 is definitely diabetes. Routine symptoms may come late in many patients. Mostly complications speak loudly. Get an average blood sugar done ie glycated haemoglobin. Rule out complications so far by getting done kidney functions liver functions lipids profile ecg eye check up ie fundus exam microalbuminuria please do not live in false impression that you are disease free.

Her blood sugar is high and she needs medication. If she does not get relief with oral tablets she has to take insulin after advice of doctor. She should avoid sweets and excess carbohydrate
