My dad - 71 years - he had ptca done in 1997 and was also diagnosed with diabetes. Till aug 2014 it was all working well with minimal drugs - diabetes under control through diet etc and cholesterol levels quite normal. However, last year in aug-14, he had high fever and got unconscious (10-15 minutes)/fallen down on the way to bathroom and fractured his leg. He does not remember what happened. Got admitted and was administered with antibiotics (novosafe). Meanwhile got catheter inserted as he was not able to pass urine and/or move because of fractured leg. Got released from hospital after 6-7 days but soon after two days again got high fever again and fell unconscious again. Gave bit of sugar and took to hospital - he felt much better by the time he reached to hospital and wsa hospitalized. Doctors suspected uti and diagnosed hypoglycemia. After that he had high fever 2 times and novosafe, piptaz courses for 6-7 days each time worked. Doctor suggested urine culture this jan 2015 and" susceptible to colistin" was found. We got 10 day course of colistin followed by 1 month course of niftas. He did not get high fever of 4-5 days after that. However got fever 5-6 times -- 100-101 degree - for a day or two with normal antibiotics gets over. Each time normal urine test showed few puss cells and couple of times off late not even those. Urine test was quite normal. We observed that high fever occurred after some physical exertion earlier 3-4 times but later 5-6 times after colistin course no such co-relation and got urine test done and puss cells were found very low/none. Usg and uriflowmetry was done in may-15 and not found any issues except that prostate slightly enlarged (which was noticed even in usg in aug 14) and for which doctor advised not to do any procedure except have tamdura (1 at bed time for 2 months) and take nurokind (1 every day for two months). Urologist does not think its recurrent uti case at least anymore. Diabetologist does not think its due to diabetes. Heart specialist also thinks nothing wrong there as lipid profile and color doppler showed normal. However, fever has been repeating every 15-20 days though puss cells are not found now. Every time he gets bit unconscious (5-10 minutes) - starts with some fever. Heavy eys. Getting unconscious. Expert suggested to consult now neuro-physician and cardiologist after usg and carotid doppler tests. Also, another expert doctor suggested it may be yers of diabetes causing the same. However, he suggested urine culture with sensitivity analysis including test for suspected fungiurea and atypical mycobacterial uti to rule out its uti. Not sure what to do (tried to keep it as brief and can give more details).

Ways To Manage Type 2 Diabetes!

Ways To Manage Type 2 Diabetes!

Glucose is the primary ingredient within the body, which is turned into an energy source. This is what we use when we move, walk or make the slightest movements. To metabolize glucose into energy, our body needs insulin, which is a hormone produced within the pancreas. However, if the body doesn't react to the insulin or the pancreas is unable to produce enough, glucose cannot be converted into energy and thus results in type 2 diabetes.

Symptoms of type 2 diabetes:

  1. Sudden or gradual weight loss despite increased hunger - Many people complain that they feel hungry and eat more, but despite this the tend to lose weight. This occurs as the body cannot metabolize glucose and uses energy reserves from fat or muscles leading to weight loss.
  2. Frequent infections and slow healing - If you are afflicted with type 2 diabetes, then it might affect your immune system and you may be prone to infections. Also, any cuts or bruises on your body will take much longer to heal than normal.
  3. Irritability and fatigue - Another common symptom of type 2 diabetes along with the other symptoms mentioned here is quick irritability and fatigue. This is because most of the body is deprived of sugar and thus lacks the energy needed to function normally. 
  4. Constant thirst and increased urination - If you feel constantly thirsty despite drinking ample water and urinating frequently, this may be a tell tale sign of type 2 diabetes.
  5. Skin darkening in folds and creases of the body - Also known as acanthosis nigricans; this is known darkening of the skin where it also becomes velvety to the touch. It usually develops in the folds of skin in areas, such as the neck and armpits and is a direct result of insulin resistance.

Causes of type 2 diabetes:

Some of the most common causes of type 2 diabetes could be:

  • Being overweight
  • Lack of physical activity
  • Genetic predisposition or family history 
  • If you are more than 45 years of age
  • Hormonal problems such as Polycystic ovarian syndrome

Treatment or management of type 2 diabetes:

In most cases, major lifestyle changes can easily keep the symptoms of type 2 diabetes in check although, in certain cases medications may also be required. Some of the steps necessary are as follows:

  1. Change in diet and healthy eating
  2. Physical activity and exercising
  3. Regular blood sugar monitoring and
  4. Blood sugar medication along with insulin therapy, if necessary

My daughter is diagnosed with thyroid, she is 13 years old and is down syndrome, normal range is .3 - 5.5 and the report says 48.09, we consulted the pediatrician and he recommended the medicine Eltroxin tablet - 50 mg. Is this medicine ok or you recommended any other?

Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. If hypothyroidism is diagnosed with TSH value of 48.09 mU/L, then treatment has to be with levothyroxine. Dosage is calculated on the basis of patient's weight, T4 & TSH values. It is better to begin with 50 mcg per day, then test TSH after 6 weeks and lf level is more than 3 to 4 mU/L then dose has to be increased. If you have any doubts please come back, thanks.

Please note seriously what I am telling, the diagnosis will itself speak. These are my practical experience which I can say are 100% correct. Before this fever starts about 3--4 days before patient feels headache (mild) and feeling of tiredness which he owes to his busy hectic routine. After 3--4 days there is sudden onset of high temperature accompanied by chills for 15--20 minutes followed by warmth and patient starts throwing all bedsheets and blankets at this time temp is between 102-- 104 degrees which drops after half an hour. Now the temp rises once in 24 hours may be visible or only patient feels this is accompanied by severe headache and body ache this symptom remains for about 1 hour and goes to normal without taking any medicines. This happens daily until proper treatment is given. There is vomitting feeling bitter mouth taste, loss of appetite, and progressive weakness. Above features make the patient normal life miserable. Please note in this urine colour is slight yellow or normal. If the above feature matches with your symptoms than you are having malaria which needs proper treatment at an earliest. As regards homeopathy I have no knowledge. If you wish in allopathy I may tell you. Take tab grandem with tab acilock150 mg twice daily after breakfast and dinner. Take tab cefolac-- o 200 mg + tab flexon twice daily after one hour of above noted medicines. Take tab lumerax 80 mg twice daily with milk. Only for 3 days. Take tab trinerve - lc one at bedtime. If fever sometimes rises you may take tab crocin advance when required. Take all these medicines for 7 days except lumerax (only 3 days) after 7 days let me know response for further advice on lybrate paid consultation service.

lybrate-user there are many causes for your problem. Firstly I advise you to stop using all sorts of synthetic shampoos. You can use any HERBAL shampoo and plain Coconut hair oil. You can go in for HOMEOPATHIC ARNICA HAIR oil. Try this for a couple of weeks and consult me on my Private questions for Homeopathic treatment whics is safest and effective for such problems. GOOD DAY.

Mr wasim khan, looking at your weight and height, your bmi is 22.87 kg/m2 which is just normal. It is really excellent to have this kind of weight and height. I do not see any reason why one should think of increasing the weight. If your diabetes is under check, then this weight is fine. Please mention your fasting, pp levels and hba1c%, so that I may be able to guide.

Dear lybrate-user, many people with type I or type ii diabetes, who have meticulously followed the doctor's instructions about medication, lifestyle, food and exercise and periodic medical check-up have a satisfying sexual lives. Those who have not been so disciplined are likely to face sexual problems early, because" uncontrolled or inadequately controlled" diabetes would lead in the long run to neurogenic erectile dysfunction. So remember to keep diabetes under control, not just for the sake of sexual well-being, but for the general health and well-being too, which is far more important. 02. Yes, the children of type I diabetics have chances of inheriting it from parents. According to Dr. Warram, if the father is under 25 when diagnosed of type I diabetes, the chances of his children inheriting it are about 1 in 10 (10%). If the mother is diabetic at about the same age, the chances are 1 in 25 (4%).

Dear lybrate user, life is precious. If you lose a job you can get another. But if you lose health, then nothing will come back. Even the busiest person on earth can find 30 mins in morning for exercise. You can control weight by diet control but exercise adds to that effort and prolongs a persons life. Please consult a dietician who can help your father with a proper diet plan plus exercise plan.
