Is any cure of diabetes? and how to gain hair if the person is suffering from diabetes?
Diabetes whether t1 or t2 is not curable disease, treatment has to be continued for life time. Hair loss may not be directly linked to diabetes. Improper nutrition is one of the reasons for it. Achieve strict sugar control and eat healthy food apart from trying measures to gain hair.

My wife is having 6 month pregnancy. Her blood sugar levels pp are up to 120. But fasting blood sugar is from 110 to 118. Should she start taking insulin?

No need. Sometimes in pregnancy there is increase in blood sugar level which again gets normalized after delivery. Better to start with homoeopathic medicines as they are with least side effects.

Take diet for hypothyroidism:- high-carbohydrate foods such as potatoes, rice, pasta and bread, Nutrient-rich foods that improve your health may also benefit your thyroid gland, antioxidant-rich fruits and vegetables more plenty of water: Blueberries, tomatoes, bell peppers, and other foods rich in antioxidants can improve overall health and benefit the thyroid gland. Eating foods high in B vitamins, like whole grains, may also help. flax oil, Selenium: Tiny amounts of selenium are needed for enzymes that make thyroid hormones to work properly. Eating selenium-rich foods, such as sunflower seeds or Brazil nuts, can be beneficial. Tyrosine: This amino acid is used by the thyroid gland to produce T3 and T4. Taking a supplement may help, Avoid few foods in hypothroidism i.e. caffeine products tea,coffee, tabcco, alcohol / wine , kale, broccoli, spinach, mustard green, cabbage, turnip, millet, cassava, linseeds, pine nuts, soy products as soy milk, tofu, soybeans, soy souce, also avoid stress.

Diabetes - 5 Ways It Can Be Treated

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology

Diabetes - 5 Ways It Can Be Treated

Diabetes or diabetes mellitus is a collection of disorders that affect the way blood sugar is used by your body. A healthy blood sugar level is very important as it provides energy for the necessary bodily functions. Diabetes results in increased glucose levels in the blood. Diabetes is classified into two types:

  1. Type 1 Diabetes: In this type, the immune system of the body destroys cells that produce insulin, thus resulting in lesser insulin production.

  2. Type 2 Diabetes: In Type 2 diabetes, the body is not able to use the insulin as a result of increased resistance to insulin and definite deficiency in insulin, thus resulting in high blood glucose levels.

Symptoms

The symptoms of diabetes are:

  1. Rapid weight loss.

  2. You may feel thirsty frequently.

  3. Excessive and frequent bouts of hunger.

  4. Presence of ketones (byproduct of muscle and fat breakdown) in the urine.

  5. Vision problems.

  6. Constant fatigue.

  7. Sores take a longer time to heal.

  8. You become vulnerable to various infections because of the weakening of the immune system.

Causes

The causes for Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes are different. In case of type 1 diabetes, the immune system of the body kills cells in the pancreas that produce insulin. This results in shortage of insulin in the body, resulting in high blood sugar levels.

In Type 2 Diabetes, the cells in the body turn resistant to insulin. The exact cause of this is not known, but genetic factors, being overweight, inactivite and other environmental factors can trigger this disorder.

Treatments

The treatment options for diabetes are:

  1. Exercise: Exercise is an effective remedy to lower your blood sugar levels as it helps in transporting sugar into the cells for energy. You can include cardiovascular activities such as running and swimming in your workout regimen.

  2. Insulin Therapy: Insulin therapy involves injecting insulin into the body to reduce blood sugar levels. It can be injected by using an insulin pen or an insulin pump.

  3. Oral Medications: Oral medications may be prescribed to stimulate the pancreas to boost insulin production. Certain medications can also inhibit excess glucose release from the liver.

  4. Pancreas Transplant: In some cases, pancreas transplant is advised to replace the faulty pancreas with a good one that produces insulin in sufficient quantity. Although, it's a rare possibility and does not correct already caused damage to eyes, kidney or nerves.

  5. Diet: Diet is another important aspect of the treatment plan that plays an important role in controlling diabetes. Avoid foods that contain simple sugars as they tend to raise your blood sugar levels. Rather, include complex carbohydrates in your diet such as beans, vegetables and whole grains. Special emphasis should be put on green vegetables. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an endocrinologist.

You don't need to worry about the diabetes unless n untill you get it confirmed. For that get an hba1c report done which will confirm your sugar status and will let you know whether you are in diabetic, pre-diabetic or non-diabetic range. You may get back once the report is done and do let me know if you have any other symptoms apart from frequency of urine and thirst. Thanks.

He could be suffering from low sugar at that time. Consult with your doctor at the earliest for change of medications. Also, check the sugar level at that time with a glucometer. If its less than 70, give him 3 spoons glucose powder in water or a glass of juice.

Hypothyroidism is a condition in which the thyroid gland is under active and does not produce sufficient amounts of thyroid hormones required in the body. The most cause of hypothyroidism is Hashimoto’s thyroiditis. Hashimoto’s thyroiditis is an auto immune disorder in which the antibodies are produced by the immune system against its own tissue, which in turn attacks the thyroid gland resulting in hypothyroidism.Severe Iodine defficiency can also lead to hypothyroidism . Natural Homeopathic remedies for hypothyroidism are highly effective and especially useful for people who want to avoid the side effects of prescription drugs. Top Homeopathic Remedies for Hypothyroidism Calcarea carb , Sepia ,Lycopodium, Graphites and Nux Vomica are the leading homeopathic remedies for hypothyroidism The normal range of TSH levels is 0.4 to 4.0 milli-international units per liter. You can easily take an online consultation for further treatment guidance and permanent cure without any side effects

Dear lybrate-user, the reports which you have put for your father here, few are normal and few are in prediabetes range. To remove any doubt I would suggest you to get the following tests done 1) HbA1c % 2) Fasting blood glucose (after 12 hour fast overnight) 3) 2 hour post 75 gram gluccon-D blood glucose [take 75 gram glucon D dissolved in a glass of water, and measure blood glucose 2 hours after glucose intake] 4) It is advisable to get a lipid profile done also With these reports please consult an endocrinologist.

If you have type1 diabetes, then you need to take insulin life long. However if you are fed up of insulin injections then you could go for an insulin pump. It is an expensive propositionas the device would cost approx 2 lacs & the running cost for the same would come to 5000 to 7000 rs. Every month. If you are fine with it then it will help you.

Yes you can take two 50 mg tabs together. But never break any tab to make it half dose as that would be highly inaccurate dosing then.
