Mr p k mishra, istamet is a good combination in treating t2 diabetes, provided it is bringing your sugar levels to desired values. The combination is as safe as any other oral anti diabetic drug. And about being perfect, well there is no drug which is perfect except probably insulin injections. If your disease is well controlled and hba1c % is around 6.5% then you should continue the same. Along with this exercise and restricted diet are equally important and not to be over looked.

Lybrate-user, it appears your blood sugar levels are well controlled as evident from hba1c%. So you can eat fruits like papaya, orange, sweet lime, apple, guava, water melon, pear and pomegranate. You have avoid mango, banana, chikkoo and grapes. The quantity of fruits has to be limited about 100 g a day. Dates are too sweet, not recommended in diabetes. But 1 or 2 pieces may be taken.

Late night food with more sugar content may give rise to fasting sugar. Take dinner before 8 o'clock and check next morning. Time to give for full digestion.

These reports are normal. Only fasting is little bit high. If you want to confirm, there is 1 more test i. E hba1c which will confirm you that you are diabetic or not or even if you are pre-diabetic. The symptoms of diabetes are:- 1. Increased thirst and hunger 2. Frequent urination 3. Weight loss or gain that has no obvious cause 4. Fatigue 5. Blurred vision 6. Wounds that heal slowly 7. Nausea 8. Skin infections 9. Patches of darker skin in areas of the body that have creases 10. Irritability 11. Breath that has a sweet, fruity, or acetone odor 12. Reduced feeling in your hands or feet.

If you religiously practice 1 ujjai pranayam 2 kapal-bhati pranayam 3 acupressure on thumb mount daily, you will be cured 100% without medication. If your symptoms are severe, visit nearest patanjali kendra for medicine without side-effects. All this is taught daily on astha channel 5.00 to 7.30 am. Very very effective. You will get miraculous results for free and without adverse effects of allopathic medicines and will gain good physical and mental health, increase in your stamina, good concentration, improved memory, etc. It is excellent to drive depression, negative thinking out of your system. Not necessary, you have to be present in front of your tv at 5 am. Begin by switching on your tv just whatever time you get up and start practicing as being taught. Gradually when you regulate your sleeping time, you will be able to get up next morning at 5 and will be able to do complete workout.

Mr. Lybrate-user, diabetes mellitus affects small blood vessels, so affects erectile function in many people. Especially if blood sugar is not well controlled. So primary requirement is to have excellent sugar control with fasting closer to 100 mg and pp 150 to 160 mg and hba1c% <7. If this not maintained for long time, then ed is bound to develop. Apart from tight sugar control there are certain drugs called as pde- v inhibitors which have been able to help overcoming this difficulty.

In my recent blood test, my SGOT and SGPT levels are 50 and 87, and my thyroid test TSH (CLIA) LEVEL is 9.25, which are above normal. Please suggest, what should I do? Is there something really very serious?

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Mr Ashish, The liver enzymes show a marginal increase, where as TSH level is very high, signifying presence of hypothyroidism. This needs immediate treatment with thyroxine tablets. If you are taking alcohol then it is better to stop that habit, which will help reducing liver enzymes. But hypothyroidism needs to treated urgently.

Both white sugar and jaggery are derived from the same source – sugar cane. Sugar crystals have no natural nutrients while jaggery has essential nutrients like magnesium, calcium, phosphorus, potassium, iron, copper and zinc. Jaggery contains the same amount of sugar. Both white sugar and jaggery have a high glycemic index. The absorption of sugar in the body takes place at a faster pace and thus raises blood sugar levels faster whereas Jaggery has sucrose which is a complex sugar and takes time to break down when consumed, but sugar levels go up within a few hours. So its not advised to take jaggery for diabetics. Sugar in all forms should be restricted.

T3 (1.11) and T4 (7.0).The tests were of 6 months back. I am not on any medication. I have read in wikipedia that Hep-B vaccine can be a doubted-causative factor to another auto immune disease called Multiple sclerosis. I am little worried to take vaccine for this reason.

Mr. Lybrate-user, millions of people world over have taken hepatitis b vaccine, there no cases seen of multiple sclerosis after the vaccination. A number of studies have ben conducted to see if there is any linkage between hepatitis b vaccine and auto immune disorder. The results are reassuring, there is no such development. So you can go ahead with the vaccination.

I am 32 years male and since last 5 years I am diabetic and I am insulin dependent but my sugar level is not coming normal inspire of regular walk and work out. Please suggest.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
It is not as easy task to control blood sugar in the desired normal range. Whatever we eat is metabolised to sugar in the body to provide energy for our daily activities. For the absolute control, one has to monitor his / her blood sugar at regular intervals (self-monitoring of blood glucose? smbg). Though difficult, this can be done by a glucometer and keep a record. Get an idea of fasting sugar (fbs) and 2 hours after food (ppbs) and check before dinner and after every major food. The basic idea is to reduce the food intake to 1/3 of what you take now. The dictum of sugar control is diet, exercise, diet + medicine and at later stage medicine+ insulin will be needed. For sugar control there is the need for regular advice and follow up. Just one time consultation or advice is not enough to guide a diabetic in scientifically & medically correct manner. For giving you regular follow up you ask me privately with all details like your daily eating pattern and medicines you take. I assure you a proper guidance. If you keep in touch. Www. Lybrate.

Hello You need not worry. You need to take precautions as you have family history. Low sugar levels can be due to improper meal timing. Take 3 main meals and 2 side meals. Don't skip breakfast. Sleep for 7-9 hours per night. Exercise regularly. Avoid fried foods, sweets, carbonated drinks and processed foods. Include whole grains, sprouts, seasonal fruits and vegetables. Avoid mango, cheeku, banana, arbi and zimikand. Take flaxseed powder 1 tsp with lukewarm water on empty stomach. Take green tea 3-4 cups a day. Drink plenty of water. Thank you

Are Dark Cracks Behind Neck A Sign Of Diabetes?

Are Dark Cracks Behind Neck A Sign Of Diabetes?

Many overweight and obese people have darkened and a rather flaky texture behind neck, darkening in armpits and other parts of body with creases and folds like elbows, knees or knuckles. This is commonly mistaken as smudge of dirt, uncleanliness or lack of hygiene. Some people think that it is due to repeated friction caused by necklace or chains etc. In fact it is a sign of'diabetes' which is already developed or might develop in future.

This darkening is due to excessive cell growth and differentiation of fibroblasts caused by excess of insulin in the body especially in obese individuals and type 2 diabetes patients.

In obese individuals and type 2 diabetes patients excess amount of fat especially abdominal fat (tummy fat) causes resistance to action of insulin secreted by pancreas and tends to hamper its action. In return, body produces more and more insulin from pancreas to keep blood sugar under control. This excess amount of insulin secreted by body promotes this skin cell growth leading to the visible condition called'acanthosis nigricans' in medical terms.

After producing excess amount of insulin pancreas start exhausting, this converts into diabetes. At this stage diabetes can be prevented by simple lifestyle modifications & focussed weight loss.
