My age is 31 I have detected a sugar level 240 mg before meal I want to ask you can I donate the blood to others?
Mr. lybrate-user, You can donate blood as long as your blood glucose levels are normal. That is fasting closer to 100 mg, PP 150 to 160 mg HbA1c%<6.8. Thanks.

Mr. lybrate-user, 48 mg / 100 ml glucose is seriously low level. It can cause severe damage including unconsciousness. When glucose level starts going below 70 mg, it starts producing hypoglycemic symptos. One should not allow the level to go down like that. Please look at your total treatment and fasting, Pp levels and HbA1c5. Thanks.

Mr. Lybrate-user, your blood glucose levels and hba1c% show there is no diabetes. Bp 140 / 90 is slightly higer than normal. Ideally it should be 120 - 130 / 70 to 80 mm hg. As regards lipids no mention is made about the levels, hence no comment can be made. Ed therefore, is unrelated to any of these problems. If it continues to be there and tends to be more troublesome then better to consult a sexologist. Thanks.

Does dark chocolate affect the sugar level content of the body or for diabetic patients?

Does dark chocolate affect the sugar level content of the body or for diabetic patients?
Dark chocolate without sugar is very bitter, but has benefits as it contains flavonoids and other anti oxidants. About 20 g a day does help insulin sensitivity. But eating large quantity adds to blood sugar level.

My daughter 16 Yrs age has Diabetic type-1 she is taking insulin 4 times a day but still her sugar level is very high. She is taking Human Actrapid 11 units before breakfast, 8 units before lunch, 6 units before dinner and at 10 o clock she take Lantus 16 units. Can we change the insulin from Human Actrapid to Human Mixtard 50/50 to 3 times before meal. Please advise.

lybrate-user, Treatment of T1 diabetes should always be done with close supervision from your local diabetologist, as increase in Insulin dosage or alteration of dosage can lead to hypoglycemic situation. Hence, it is essential to consult the local expert as he or she will be easily available in the event of certain problems. Insulin Actrapid helps to control post prandial glucose rise and since it is a short acting compound control is better. Using a Mixtard 50/50, may be at times disadvantageous. Best is to consult your physician or diabetologist. Thanks.

Alpanaji, if you have diabetes and if it is not in control, you may have to get up on a number occasions at night, which does disturb the sleep. So please let me know if blood sugar levels are in control or not? fasting should be 100 mg or there about, pp 150 to 160 mg and hba1c%<7. This plus regular exercise daily for 1 hour will definitely help you get good sleep. Taking drugs to induce sleep is never a good option.

Yes, definitely. Type 2 diabetes can be inherited. But you can do a lot to prevent, or at least delay getting it. Lose weight (if you are overweight/ obese), exercise regularly & eat healthy.

If you have blood sugars in the range of 350-500 then you should not leave insulin injections. In fact your insulin dosage or type of insulin needs to be changed. Some times oral diabetic drugs can also be added. Some times diet/exercise failure /stress/infection/ thyroid dysfunction in the body does not allow your sugars to come under control.

5 Ways To Beat Diabetes

PGDCC (Cardiology ), CCEBDM (Diabetes), CCGDM (Gestational Diabetes), CCMTD (Thyroid), MBBS
Cardiologist, Udaipur
5 Ways To Beat Diabetes

India has the largest number of diabetics in the world. Around 6.2 crore people in India suffer from diabetes. Many patients with diabetes in India are still undiagnosed. More than 95% of these patients have type 2 diabetes. Type 2 diabetes results from the body's ineffective use of insulin. It is usually diagnosed in the age group of 35-45. It can be prevented by healthy diet and exercise.

The patients who are diagnosed with diabetes and even those who do not have the disease can benefit by following these 5 effective ways to beat diabetes.

1. Make healthy food choices

Taking care of your diet is one of an essential components to manage and prevent diabetes.

-switch to oils with a high volume of monounsaturated fats and polyunsaturated fats like olive oil, canola oil, soybean oil or rice bran oil. Limit intake to one tablespoon a day.

-restrict intake of foods that have a high glycemic index like white bread, white rice, fatty foods, and soda.

-consume foods with a low glycemic index like multigrain aata, whole grains, daals, most fruits, non-starchy vegetables and carrots.

-limit consumption of fast food. Studies show that young adults who ate fast food more than twice a week developed insulin resistance (a diabetes risk factor) at twice the rate of people who weren't fast food junkies.

2. Watch your weight

Losing weight can help to regulate blood sugar levels.

-if you have type 2 diabetes, losing just 4-6 kgs can lower your glucose levels.

-the way fat is distributed in the body can also impact diabetes risk and management.

-people who have abdominal adiposity (fat around the belly) are more prone to type 2 diabetes than those with fat mostly in the thighs, hips, and buttocks.

3. Exercise regularly

Regular exercise can lower blood glucose and possibly reduce the amount of medication you need to treat diabetes, or even eliminate the need for medication.

-get your doctor's approval before starting an exercise program.

-even if you do not lose any weight, exercise can help keep type 2 diabetes under control.

-start slowly with a low-impact exercise such as walking, swimming or jogging.

-exercise, at least, three times a week for about 30 to 45 minutes.

-warm up for 5 minutes before starting to exercise and cool down for 5 minutes after exercise.

-always carry a source of carbohydrate with you so you'll be ready to treat low blood glucose.

4. Manage stress better

Stress can make blood sugar levels harder to control.

-engage in any relaxation technique to ward off stress.

-the best techniques include yoga, meditation, deep breathing exercises.

-you may join a yoga club nearby or else take out 10-15 minutes every day to sit quietly with yourself and practice meditation.

5. Go for regular health check-ups

Diabetes requires lifelong commitment towards following a healthy lifestyle, taking medicines on time and getting regular checkups to detect any complications.

-check your blood sugar levels at home at least once a week.

-get your hba1c levels checked at least twice a year. 

-in addition, make sure that your eyes, kidneys, heart, and skin are in optimal health.

-visit an eye specialist once a year to detect any signs of eye damage (diabetic retinopathy).

-get your kidney function tests done at least 2 times a year.

-inspect your feet regularly for any signs of numbness, pain or growth that may lead to ulceration and complications.

What are the symptoms of sugar if a person suffering from this disease and ealear prevention from it.

BHMS
Homeopath,
What are the symptoms of sugar if a person suffering from this disease and ealear prevention from it.
Dear lybrate user, one of the major nutritional substance required for human body is carbohydrate. We take carbohydrate in the form of rice, wheat, sugar etc. The complex molecules of carbohydrate are broken down into simple glucose molecules during digestion & released in the blood stream to be absorbed by the muscle cells. Insulin hormone plays a vital role in the absorption of the glucose molecules by the muscle cells. In abnormal conditions, either due to less production of insulin or due to resistance to insulin, the process of absorption of glucose by the muscles comes to a stand still. The glucose molecules remains in the blood stream which results in the increase in the blood sugar level. This abnormal condition is clinically known as diabetes mellitus. Once you are diagnosed with diabetes you have to take regular medicine to keep your blood sugar level within normal limits. Take homoeopathic mother tincture gymnemna sylvestra q, 30 drops, thrice daily after meals, in a cup of water. Also you need to walk at least 1 hour daily without any interval. Also you need to take a low carbohydrate rich diet.

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.
