Last week I got a call from one of my patients, who conceived after long period of infertility. She called me to remind me that, that very days was the birthday of her son, that is the wealth that she gained after long battle. And even the son tried to talk to me over phone with his soft voice. And this success is really rewarding for any Infertility Specialists.

Now, the inability to conceive- INFERTILITY, the problem is prevalent in our society and is increasing. But majority of common people don't have clear idea about the concept of fertility and the problems. Ability to have pregnancy depends on many factors both in male and female. Even in a normal couple (where both husband and wife are totally normal), there is chance of pregnancy if they practise regular intercourse in a particular time of the menstrual cycle (around ovulation). And even with that, the best chance is only 15-20%. But within one year of regular trying, 80% of couples manage to conceive. And out the rest 20%, 10 will conceive within next one year and the rest 5 in 3rd year. So, ultimately 5% of couple will have difficulty in conception.

So, we advise, if you tried regularly for one year and there is no pregnancy, don't get depressed. It may be due to some defects in husband, wife or both; or may be due to chance factor. But we have to make sure that there is no defect in any of the partners. If there is any defect, we will treat that. If no defect is found, then we have to increase the chance.

So, infertility treatment is actually based on stepwise manner. We initially advise some tests and then advise a treatment. If that treatment fails, we move to next treatment.

So, all the time, you have to keep patience. Eventually, majority of the couples will conceive. Don't give up hope. You have to win the race ultimately

lybrate-user, I have gone through the query and understand your concern. However, the claims made by some of the so called therapies that by taking those diabetes can be cured is is not true. This is a condition due either deficiency of insulin or due to resistance to the action of insulin. So only option or treatment is to either provide insulin, or increase its secretion or reduce the resistance to its action. Based on these premises modern treatment treats diabetes effectively. According to me the treatment mentioned has no possibility of reducing blood glucose leave alone curing it. Thanks.

Mr. lybrate-user, Even though you have asked for Ayurvedic treatment, I am answering the query. The reason is looking at your Fasting & Pp glucose levels it is clear that diabetes is totally uncontrolled. This is not good at any age, particularly at your age. Only real option for controlling diabetes is available only with modern medicines. So my suggestion is please stick to that, treatment can be improved with newer drugs or if need be Insulin may have to be used. Ideally to be in control fasting glucose has to be closer to 100 mg & PP 160 to 170 mg & HbA1c%<7. Otherwise a number of long term complications related to diabetes will start manifesting. In other medical practices unfortunately there are really no remedies to control diabetes, even though tall claims are made by them. Still you want to go for ayurvedic treatment then choice is entirely yours. Thanks.

Your diabetes is poorly controlled. You need to control it first. Second maintenance of good hygiene is very important. You can consult with me regarding further management.

My father tested fasting sugar and its result is 130. Is it dangerous or not? What type of precautions take?

Yes if you have type 2 diabetes and your blood sugar levels are racing up and down like a roller coaster, it's time to get off the ride. Big swings in your blood sugar can make you feel lousy. But even if you aren't aware of them, they can still increase your risk for a number of serious health problems. By making simple but specific adjustments to your lifestyle and diet, you can gain better blood-sugar control. Your body uses the sugar, also known as glucose, in the foods you eat for energy. Think of it as a fuel that keeps your body moving throughout the day. Blood sugar highs and lows

Diabetic Macular Edema - Know More About It!

Diabetic Macular Edema - Know More About It!

 Diabetic Macular Edema (DME) is an accumulation of fluid in the macula(part of the retina that controls our most detailed vision abilities)due to leaking blood vessels. DME develops in eyes wth diabetic retinopathy. Diabetic retinopathy is a disease that damages the blood vessels in the retina, resulting in vision impairment. Left untreated, these blood vessels begin to build up pressure in the eye and leak fluid, causing DME.

DME is associated with: 

  1. Those who have had diabetes for an extended amount of time
  2. Severe hypertension (high blood pressure)
  3. Fluid retention
  4. Hypoalbuminemia (low levels of protein in body fluids)
  5. Hyperlipidemia (high levels of fats in the blood)

Symptoms: Common symptoms of DME are

  1. Blurry vision
  2. Floaters
  3. Double vision
  4. Eventually blindness if it goes untreated

Who is at risk of diabetic macular oedema:

About 1 in 3 people with diabetes develop macular Eedema. People with type 1 and type 2 diabetes are at a higher risk of getting diabetic macular oedema. Also other risk factors are:

  1. Poor control of blood sugars
  2. High blood pressure
  3. High cholesterol level
  4. Pregnancy
  5. In smokers

How is diabetic macular oedema detected:
Diabetic macular oedema can be detected during regular visits to the doctor. Patients with diabetes should be offered screening tests. Digital photographs of the patients can be taken as they show the early signs of diabetic macular oedema, though changes in vision might not be noticed at this time.

What happens when you attend the medical retina clinic:
When you go for an eye checkup you will undergo a comprehensive examination which includes:

  1. Visual acuity test: This is a sight test which measures how well you can see the different distances
  2. Eye pressure test: This test is done to measure the pressure of the eyes and usually drops which numb the eyes are used when this test is conducted
  3. Dilated eye examination: In this the drops are placed in the eye to dilate the pupils and then the back of the eye is examined.
  4. Fluorescein angiography: This is a diagnostic test in which an injection of fluorescein dye is given in the hand and then the photographs are taken.
  5. Optical coherence tomography: This is done to measure the retinal swelling

How to reduce the risks of diabetic macula oedema:
The risk of diabetic macula oedema can be reduced by quitting smoking, and to make sure that blood sugar and cholesterol levels are under control. This is achieved by regularly measuring the cholesterol and blood sugar levels. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an ophthalmologist.
