It will be difficult to tell you what is the exact cause of this problem without evaluating and investigating her in person. Her increased urination could be due to some urinary infection, My suggestion is consult a internal medicine specialist locally so that they can advise tests after evaluating her and direct you further. SHE MAY NEED THE FOLLOWING INVESTIGATIONS cbc-diff, urine r/m, urine culture, ultrasound whole abdomen, ecg, echo, hba1c.

Mr. Lybrate-user, fasting above 126 mg is diagnostic of diabetes. Similarly after food >200 mg. Your pp level is less than 200 mg. So better get hba1c% checked, if that is above 6.5%, then diabetes confirmed. If diabetes is confirmed, then there is no other option than taking appropriate anti diabetes medicine, to control blood sugar level. Unfortunately there are no home remedies or other treatments available to treat diabetes. Lifestyle changes will also be needed. You will have to stop taking sweets, avoid deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries and other bakery items like white bread, no sweetened aerated drinks, avoid fructose corn syrup containing products, highly processed food products. Consume more of green leafy vegetables, salads and permitted fruits. Avoid alcohol and smoking totally. T2 diabetes does have familial spread, but can come without that too. Over weight and inactivity and junk food are main contributors. Thanks.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. I can only comment after looking at following details :fasting, PP glucose levels and HbA1c%. Because without knowing those details there is no way to give an opinion. Thanks.

Syedji, If patient has diabetes then immediate treatment initiation is a must. To bring diabetes in control patient should maintain fasting sugar nearer 100 mg and PP around 150 to 160 mg and HbA1c<7%. This can be achieved by proper drug treatment, diet control and exercise. plus time to time blood sugar check up also needs to be done like initially once a week or once in 15 days. If you are looking foe specific guidance it will be better if you come ina private conversation, where I can be very specific.

How much gap should be? To take Eltroxin after meal.
After meal how many hours I can take Eltroxin.
The best time to take Eltroxin is to take it immediately upon awakening. Alternatively, you may take it half hour before meals or one hour after. Whatever you do, try to stick to one routine. This will ensure consistancy in absorption and bioavailability.

Diabetes - A Major Risk Factor for Kidney Disease!

MBBS, MD - Internal Medicine, DM - Nephrology

Diabetes - A Major Risk Factor for Kidney Disease!

Diabetes is a disorder that is characterized by an inability of the pancreas to produce enough insulin or effectively utilize the insulin produced by the body. Insulin is the hormone that is produced by the pancreas to metabolize sugar in the body, the sugar that is present in the food that you consume.

Diabetes is commonly classified into two types: Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes.

In Type 1 diabetes, the cells in the pancreas do not produce insulin in the required amounts; this disorder usually tends to occur in children. Type 2 diabetes generally occurs in people who are above 40 years of age; this type is characterized by an inability of the body to efficiently utilize the insulin produced by the pancreas.

How can diabetes affect your kidneys?

Too much glucose, also called sugar, in your blood from diabetes damages your kidneys’ filters. If the filters are damaged, a protein called albumin, which you need to stay healthy, leaks out of your blood and into your urine. Damaged kidneys do not do a good job of filtering wastes and extra fluid from your blood. The wastes and extra fluid build up in your blood and make you sick.

Diabetes is a leading cause of kidney disease. Diabetic kidney disease is the medical term for kidney disease caused by diabetes. Diabetic kidney disease affects both kidneys at the same time.

Signs of Kidney Disease in Patients with Diabetes

  1. Albumin/protein in the urine
  2. High blood pressure
  3. Ankle and leg swelling, leg cramps
  4. Going to the bathroom more often at night
  5. High levels of BUN and creatinine in blood
  6. Less need for insulin or antidiabetic medications
  7. Morning sickness, nausea and vomiting
  8. Weakness, paleness and anemia
  9. Itching

What are the possible complications?

  1. End-stage kidney failure: If this occurs then you would need kidney dialysis or a kidney transplant.
  2. Cardiovascular diseases: Diabetics have an increased risk of developing cardiovascular diseases, such as heart disease, stroke and peripheral arterial disease. If you have diabetes and diabetic kidney disease, your risk of developing cardiovascular diseases is increased further. 
  3. High blood pressure: Kidney disease has a tendency to increase blood pressure. In addition, increased blood pressure has a tendency to make kidney disease worse. Treatment of high blood pressure is one of the main treatments of diabetic kidney disease.

What to do?

  1. It is essential to get your urine checked at least once every year to detect signs of kidney damage.
  2. Some other symptoms that you may experience are swelling in the ankles, weight gain and a rise in your blood pressure.
  3. The first step to treat kidney damage caused by diabetes is to get your blood sugar levels under control.
  4. You should also avoid consuming medications that can cause damage to the kidneys.
  5. A kidney transplant or dialysis may be advised if the damage to kidneys is significant. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Nephrologist.

Hello I am sure you are aware of importance of having proper weight. So it is necessary for you to exercise more preferably brisk walking for more than one hour a day. Simultaneously cut down your calories by 500 per day. You have work towards bringing your bmi nearer 23 kg per sq meter. This will help you reduce swelling and improve fitness.
