Hello, Thanks for the query. It is difficult to answer based on one reading given. Because those two levels do not look like the patient has diabetes (unless these are after taking the tablets). I can only answer if you give me the HbA1c% value. Thanks.

I am 25 years old boy I have thyroid problem and I am talking 125 mg of thyroxine tablet. Doctor said you need to take life long I need a permanent treatment.

MBBS
General Physician,
Hello, Thanks for your query on Lybrate As per your clinical history is concerned please follow like this - 1) Do take medications regularly and do a clinical exam every 3 months by your doctor(Endocrinologis)and check your TSH level every 3 months. 2) Do take a multivitamin like (Rejuvit Plus )once a day at bedtime. 3) Do regular exercise 30 mins in a day. Diets required for Hypothyrodism - Some diet suggestions for hypothyroidism include: 1) Foods high in Omega 3 and Omega 6 fatty acids such as leafy green vegetables, salmon, nuts, seeds, and shrimp should be added to your menus. 2) Try to drink plenty of fluids throughout the day. Water and green tea can be sipped on in between meals to prevent dehydration. 3) Take Iodine rich foods such as seaweed and algae should be eaten regularly. Foods such as broccoli, cauliflower, soy, beans, and spinach can actually slow down the functioning of the thyroid so they should be eaten in small quantities. 4) Try to avoid artificial sweeteners, caffeine, dairy and alcohol when on a diet for hypothyroidism. 5) You can do Yoga poses such as the Sun Salutation, the Dead Man's pose, the Wind Relieving pose, Head to Knee Pose, the Fish pose and the breathing techniques are vital for providing energy, improving blood circulation and relaxing the nervous system along with improving the functioning of the thyroid gland. So to do it you need to consult with a yoga instructor. Hope that helps.

How Diabetes Affects the Nervous System

How Diabetes Affects the Nervous System

Diabetic neuropathy is a nerve disorder caused by diabetes. The high blood sugar from diabetes affects the nerves and over time increases a person's risk for nerve damage. Keeping blood sugar levels within the target range recommended by your doctor helps prevent diabetic neuropathy.

Types of Diabetic Neuropathy:
Diabetic neuropathy can be classified as Peripheral, Autonomic, Proximal, or Focal. Each affects different parts of the body in various ways...

Peripheral neuropathy, the most common type of diabetic neuropathy, causes pain or loss of feeling in the toes, feet, legs, and hands.

Autonomic neuropathy affects the nerves that control involuntary body functions such as digestion, bowel and bladder function, sexual response, and perspiration. It can also affect the nerves that serve the heart and control blood pressure, as well as nerves in the lungs and eyes. Autonomic neuropathy can also cause hypoglycemia unawareness, a condition in which people no longer experience the warning symptoms of low blood glucose levels.

Proximal neuropathy causes pain in the thighs, hips, arms, or buttocks and leads to weakness in the legs and hands, resulting in difficulty in walking, standing, picking up objects, buttoning your clothes, etc.

Focal neuropathy results in the sudden weakness of one nerve or a group of nerves, causing muscle weakness or pain. Any nerve in the body can be affected.

How Diabetes Causes Damage to the Nervous System?
There are several factors that are likely to contribute to nerve damage through diabetes...

  • High blood glucose, a condition associated with diabetes, causes chemical changes in nerves. These changes impair the nerves' ability to transmit signals. 
  • High glucose levels affect many metabolic pathways in the nerves, leading to an accumulation of a sugar called sorbitol and depletion of a substance called myoinositol. These changes are the mechanism that causes nerve damage. Nitric oxide dilates blood vessels. In a person with diabetes, low levels of nitric oxide may lead to constriction of blood vessels supplying the nerve, contributing to nerve damage.
  • Presence of mechanical injury like carpal tunnel syndrome in a diabetic patient worsens its symptoms and prognosis
  • inherited traits increase susceptibility to nerve disease
  • lifestyle factors, such as smoking or alcohol use

Symptoms:

  1. Numbness, burning sensations, tingling, or pain in the toes, feet, legs, hands, arms, and fingers
  2. Either hypersensitivity to touch or insensitivity, even to hot and cold temperatures
  3. Weakness in muscles and loss of reflexes
  4. indigestion, nausea, or vomiting
  5. diarrhea or constipation
  6. dizziness or faintness due to a drop in blood pressure after standing or sitting up
  7. problems with urination
  8. Changes in gait and balance
  9. Injuries that are taking longer to heal and are more prone to infections

Prevent Diabetic Nerve Damage:
Keeping your blood sugar levels in your target range, set with your doctor, may help prevent nerve damage from ever developing. The best way to do this is by checking your blood sugar and adjusting your treatment. It is also important to get to and stay at a healthy weight by exercising and eating healthy foods.

If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult the doctor and ask a free question.

I had a diabetes since 2 yrs. Iam taking insulin 30 &14 units in morning and evening respectively. I want to take medicine instead of insulin. Is there any possibility to giveup insulin. Pls suggest me. Shall I go to any ayurvedic or homeopathy.

Mr Naveen, You have been advised to take insulin injection, means the blood sugar levels to begin with must have been very high. Diabetes mellitus is a disease occurring due deficiency of Insulin hormone secreted by Islets of Langerhans in pancreas. So the treatment has to be providing Insulin. In almost every T2 DM patient as the disease progresses, giving Insulin becomes necessary as only oral drugs do not control the disease. To my knowledge there are no real drugs which can control blood sugar levels, still if you are willing to try go ahead.

Dear Lybrate User, Gout is a condition which can be successfully treated by Homeopathy. You no need to worry at all for your complaints. Just take 1.Berberis pentarkan-2 tablets, 3 times a day for 5 days. 2.Benzoic acid-200, 2 drops, 2 times day for 5 days Advice- Limiting alcoholic beverages and drinks sweetened with fruit sugar (fructose). Instead, drink plenty of nonalcoholic beverages, especially water. ·        Limit intake of foods high in purines, such as red meat, organ meats and seafood. ·        Exercising regularly and losing weight. Keeping your body at a healthy weight reduces your risk of gout. ·        Cherries may help prevent gout attacks Consult me for follow up after taking these medicines for 5 days. For further information and details you can consult online. Take Care.
