I am 49 years old having diabetes type 2 and hbp for 6 years. Recently (one month back) I undergone with right leg hip ball joint replacement operation. Now my sugar levels FBS: 170 - 180, PPBS: 230-270 in glucose monitor. Our MD doctor suggested taking insulin three times 20-20-18 units. My BP is 130/90 and pulse is always a head of 100. He suggested Losartan potassium 25 mg. Please let me know is this right treatment? What can I do for lowering my pulse rate?

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Please tell me whether you have totally stopped the oral anti-diabetic drugs with starting of Insulin injections? Or are you taking those also? It is essential to maintain FBG < 100 mg, Pp 150 to 160 mg & HbA1c% <6.8 for being free from complications and also to be very healthy and for being healthy. The dose of Losartan 25 mg is fine the BP is not very high. In some persons heart rate may remain a bit high. Regular exercise will help in controlling it. Thanks.

My mother is diabetic patient and she had a history of schizophrenia also. Her schizophrenia is very much vanished but from couple of months there is some new type of sudden disordered behavior observed. She was doing very well and it seems like she had never been suffered from schizophrenia but suddenly a phase arrived in which she use to remain silent and also consume very less food. She stop talking and reply very less for any question. This kind of phase use to came with certain frequency since few months. Can anyone please suggest something better for her. I will be grateful.

Dear lybrate-user, Please let me know your mother's age, the symptoms of schizophrenia and diabetes. The duration of those illnesses and the treatment so far, etc. Only with details, you can get a proper reply. In general, schizophrenia is a life long disorder like diabetes. Both of them will be kept under good control with appropriate drugs and other psychosocial methods. Just if she is doing well or the sugar levels are normal, does not mean that she is not having schizophrenia or diabetes. Both have to kept under control with treatment for life. Otherwise relapses like this happen. Withdrawal is one of the symptoms of schizophrenia relapse. It may not happen as soon as you stop the treatment since many medicines stay in the body for a long time. Get back to your psychiatrist and diabetologist to manage her better.

I want leave sugar permanently. What will be the effect to body. Is there any loss to my body for leaving sugar?

Mr Ramandeep Singh, Sugar is Sucrose which is made up of one molecule of glucose and one of fructose (fruit sugar). This is a carbohydrate. Leaving sugar totally means you will not be consuming only sucrose. However, all the foods that we consume like wheat, jowar, rice, bajra and other millets, pulses, fruits, nuts (most of them) and potato, sweet potato, beet root etc all contain STARCH, which is converted to either maltose, then to 2 molecules of glucose. Similarly milk and milk products contain Lactose, which is also converted to Glucose and galactose. So by stopping taking sugar one can not stop getting glucose. Glucose is an essential energy giving fuel to all the ceelular and metabolic activity in the body. Plus our brain uses only glucose for energy. So it is essential. You can stop eating sugar, that will reduce your glucose intake marginally.

Except for taking medication and working out, what diet control do you reccomend?

Take diet for hypothyroidism:- high-carbohydrate foods such as potatoes, rice, pasta and bread, avoid oily foods,junk foods, go for walk. 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. flax oil, 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 bad habits . Avoid stress. Some Relax during work. Go for walk, Take plenty of water, avoid more protein diet,milk products.

How to Prevent Your Child from Developing Type 2 Diabetes?

How to Prevent Your Child from Developing Type 2 Diabetes?

Type 2 diabetes (T2DM) is a chronic metabolic disorder that prevents the body from processing sugar or glucose. The disorder causes insufficient production of the hormone Insulin (responsible for regulating sugar into the different parts of your body); or the body's failure to respond to the hormone produced. Although no cure is available for T2DM, there are several ways in which you can help prevent Type 2 diabetes in your child. These are:

1. Get your child to indulge in some physical activity - Spending about 60 minutes of the day on physical activity can help your child to ward off Type 2 diabetes. In terms of screen time, it shouldn't be over 2 hours a day. By doing so, he or she ends up building his or her muscles as well as gets rid of extra fat from the body. An active life would also help your child to maintain an optimal body weight with obesity being a cause of this form of diabetes. Whether it's a sport like swimming, cricket or basketball, or even walking and dancing, physical activity in any form can help in preventing your child from developing Type 2 diabetes.

2. Plan a well-balanced diet for your child - Encouraging your child to have healthy foods and making right food choices can also lower his or her chances of getting this metabolic disorder. Foods high in fiber like whole grain cereals and bread, lentils, fruits, and vegetables should be consumed. Similarly, foods low in trans and saturated fats like lean meat, chicken, yogurt and cheese should be included in your child's diet. Processed foods, as well as sugary drinks, should be no-no when it comes to your child's diet.

3. Adopting proper eating habits - It is not only making the right food choices that are important but eating right as well is vital for preventing the onset of diabetes. Having meals with fix portion sizes is a habit that you need to develop in your child. Ideally, half the plate should be filled with vegetables and fruits; a quarter with lean protein like chicken; and the remaining with whole grain. To accompany the meal, make your child have one cup of no-fat or low-fat milk. Desserts like ice cream and cookies should be allowed only once or twice a week.
