My sister has increase insulin (2-34) 64 level what effects of it on body.& we have 2 admit my sis in hospital.
increased insulin can lead to hypoglycaemia . it is generally accidental in diabetic pts. it leads to sweating,weakness, anxiety,hunger,blurring of vision,tingling around mouth,disorientation, confusion,seizure, unconsciousness, shock if not treated immediately. treatment is eating something sugary like fruit juice,glucose,biscuits,etc

Please advice whether a sugar patient must have got her sugar within limits just a day before cataract operation.

Male Infertility - Causes and Treatment!

Male Infertility - Causes and Treatment!

We hear it too often, "My husband was diagnosed with Azoospermia,can you help me and what is this?"  This complicated medical condition has a variety of causes and can be challenging to treat. If you are going through the same, pull all your socks up and feel free to consult IVF Specialist 

Causes of male infertility: 

Methods of Diagnosis  

Scrotal     ultrasound. This     test uses high-frequency sound waves to produce images inside the body. A     scrotal ultrasound can help the doctor see if there is a varicocele or     other problems in the testicles and supporting structures. Hormone     testing. Hormones     produced by the pituitary gland, hypothalamus and testicles play a key role in sexual development and sperm production. 

Abnormalities in other hormonal or organ systems might also contribute to infertility. 

A blood test measures the level of testosterone and other hormones. 

Post-ejaculation  urinalysis. Sperm  in your urine can indicate that sperm are traveling backward into the     bladder instead of out your penis during ejaculation (retrograde     ejaculation). 

Genetic tests. When sperm concentration is extremely low, there could be a genetic cause. A  blood test can reveal whether there are subtle changes in the Y chromosome  — signs of a genetic abnormality. Genetic testing might be ordered to  diagnose various congenital or inherited syndromes. 

Testicular biopsy. This test involves removing samples from the testicle with a needle. If the results of the testicular biopsy show that sperm production is normal ,  then the problem is likely caused by a blockage or another problem with sperm transport. However, this test is not commonly used to diagnose the cause of infertility. 

Specialized sperm function tests. A number of tests can be used to check how well the sperm survive after ejaculation, how well they can penetrate an egg, and whether  there's any problem attaching to the egg. Generally, these tests are  rarely performed and often do not significantly change recommendations for treatment. 

Transrectal  ultrasound. A  small, lubricated wand is inserted into the rectum. It allows the doctor to check prostate, and look for blockages of the tubes that carry semen  (ejaculatory ducts and seminal vesicles).

Top 4 Lifestyle Changes For An Effective Management Of Diabetes

Top 4 Lifestyle Changes For An Effective Management Of Diabetes

There are several ways to control your blood sugar levels, like doing simple exercises, following a diabetic diet, etc. However, when your condition goes beyond your control, you may need to embrace some lifestyle changes to manage it well. Lifestyle changes are mostly recommended for those diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes as well as for those living with a higher risk of developing the condition.

1. Involvement in physical activities

Involving yourself in any form of physical activity or exercising for 30 minutes will allow you to manage your blood glucose levels in an efficient way. Physical activities include:

  • Cycling on an even land

  • Fast walking

  • Aerobics

  • Yoga

However, if you feel too tired while practicing the above-mentioned activities, it is better to be safe and discontinue them.

2. Maintaining a healthy weight

Obesity or being overweight is the main cause for the spike of blood sugar levels in your body. Thus, it is vital for you to maintain a healthy weight to bring your blood glucose to a normal level. You can follow a healthy diet plan that contains more protein and fewer carbohydrates. Moreover, eating more calories than those you burn is the main reason for the increase in insulin levels. Consuming a mixture of vegetables and fruits will significantly decrease the danger of diabetes. Avoid eating food items that are rich in hydrogenated fat, sugar, and saturated fat. Moreover, maintaining your BMI from 19 to 30 will allow you to control the condition effectively.

3. Quit all types of alcohol drinks

Usually, alcoholic drinks have the tendency of dehydrating your body. This will boost the levels of blood glucose in your body and will lead to further health complications, such as cardiac arrest or stroke. If you want to drink on special occasions, it is better and safe to know the amount well in advance by consulting your family doctor.

4. Quit your smoking habit

Diabetics are more prone to a variety of health problems, such as eye infection, kidney disease, stroke, blood vessel ailment, foot problems, nerve damage, etc., smoking will further increase the chance of suffering from them. Therefore, quitting your smoking habit will allow you to manage your condition easily.

How to know if you have diabetes? What are the chance of getting it for a 20 year old student?
Hello, Thanks for the query. One can find out about diabetes by doing a fasting and after food blood glucose level and HbA1c%. Thanks.

Hello sir I am 23 old boy. I am diabetic patient. I came to know just 20 days before that my sugar level is 375 after fasting now my sugar level is 180 after fasting. Can it will go permanently or not. How I became the diabetic patient despite I'm very health conscious. Before three month I was not diabetic. Report say.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. I have gone through the details, I understand your concern. Please answer following few questions: Do your parents or any one in the family have diabetes? Have you been loosing weight over last few weeks or months? Is there excess thirst, excess urination and hunger as well as general weakness during last few weeks or months? The blood glucose reduction that you have reported (from 375 mg to 180 mg) has occurred on its own or after taking any medication? What is the present treatment with details of drugs and dosage? It is necessary to know all these details, before one can look at how to control your blood glucose rise. Another important aspect is that if DIABETES is CONFIRMED then treatment has to go on for Life Time. There is no Cure. If you do not take necessary care, then there can be very severe long term consequences related to every single system in the body. So my suggestion is please initiate appropriate treatment with modern anti diabetic drugs and continue the same. Strict blood glucose control is absolutely essential. Fasting should be <100 mg, PP 150 to 160 mg & HbA1c%<6.8. It will be good if you provide all the details and come in a private conversation then I will be able to guide and help treat your condition effectively. Thanks.

There has some hue n cry about pioglitazone two years back but that is politics between pharma companies. MOREOVER Bladder cancer risk is with high dose that is 30 mg or above but it's benefits overweigh risk. In India Doctors are using this salt for 15 years.Nobody has seen any case of bladder cancer. On the contrary cancer is more seen in people who are not diabetics and aren't using pioglitazone. So rest assured you are on right track.Good luck.
