Approximately 4-6 gms of sodium is sufficient for your daily needs.This equals about 2 tsps of common salt. 2-3 tsps of sugar can suffice daily, however this should include any sweets, dessert, and your tea, coffee etc. Try to avoid free sugar intake.... instead have dried fruits & fresh fruits.

I am a diabetic patient. My age is 68 years male. Since last several years I was having sugar between 150 to 180 PP. But since last two months, it has suddenly increased to between 260 t0 280. I am taking same medicine regularly since last several years as prescribed by doctor. I am afraid that medicine is not having any effect. Whether I should start insulin injection for some time. I understand that juice of one karela is very beneficial. Someone has told me that karela juice is harmful for eyes. Please give me detailed reply on my e-mail. I will be thankful to you.

My father recently tested sugar and it is 290 in fasting. We consulted a doctor today and he advised to take insulin with power 20 morning and 16 night. My parents are very worried and I have never seen my father so weak before. I am trying hard to make the situation light by smiling and sharing many website notes where it is mentioned that it is curable and nothing to worry. They feel a bit relieved but still something is killing them inside. I am keeping myself strong by saying positive things to them but the truth is I am scared inside. Please suggest me what is the best possible treatment for this disease so that I can see my papa jumping and smiling. I know he is very strong but I also know that he is very worried. Can this be curable? I love them a lot please give me some power so that I can make them much strong and my father can get out of this disease completely.

Diabetes cannot be cured. If managed well enough, it can be curtailed to avoid complications such as kidney failure, amputation, blindness and stroke. Preventing or managing diabetes requires clinical interventions as well as lifestyle changes. Medication is only one small part of managing diabetes. The major changes come from self-care activities. There are five essential self-care behaviours that have good outcomes. 1. Diet – Consume a low-fat, high-fibre diet helps. Eat lot of fruits, vegetables (at least 4-5 helping a day) along with whole meal, cereals and lentils 2. Exercise for at least 30 minutes a day, 5 days a week. 3. Medications – Be compliant with the dosages. 4. Testing - Monitoring blood sugar and screening for complications 5. Psychology – Acceptance, coping and problem solving skills

Mr. Lybrate-user kumar, primarily he should achieve a very strict blood sugar control like fasting around 100 mg, pp 150 to 160 mg, hba1c%<7. Get his feet examined by a competent diabetologist and a podiatrist (diabetic foot specialist). Use soft or specially designed foot wear. Avoid injuris to feet. He should examine his feet every day to see if any additional problems have come up. Secondly if need be get a full assessment for peripheral neuropathy and blood supply to lower limb by a colour doppler test. Neglecting the feet can be very dangerous. Thanks.

I have diagnosed thyroid few days ago. How to prevent from this? What are the symptoms and effect of this?

DRCH, BHMS
Homeopath, Bareilly
Thyroid gland affection manifest in our body mostly in three form- hypothyroidism, hyperthyroidism and goiter. Mostly women in middle age group are affected by hypothyroidism. Symptoms of hypothyroidism are- weight gain and edema, mood disturbances and irritability, lethargy and loss of interest in work, rough hairs and hair fall, heavy menses and cold intolerance. Symptoms of hyperthyroidism- hot body and heat intolerance, loss of weight, increased appetite, excessive sweating and trembling of body. Bulging of eye ball may also present that is called exopthalmous goiter. In simple goiter there is swelling and hypertrophy of thyroid gland which is manifested in the form of big nodule at the anterior part of neck. This is a type of hormonal imbalance in our body. So there is not any specific mode of prevention of it. Yet by healthy food habit and healthy life style we can avoid many diseases. Genetic involvement is also seen in thyroid affection. Take medicine properly as prescribed to you to remain fit.

Sugar-free pills have till date not undergone any major human study trial. By doing human study trial we ascertain the benefits and risks of any agent on scientific basis. So in reality everybody is consuming these sweeteners on the basis of animal trials !

Diabetes - Can It Affect Your Kidneys?

MBBS, CCEBDM

Diabetes - Can It Affect Your Kidneys?

Each tiny action we commit involves the risk of a condition, disease or disorder. For instance, sneezing a bit too hard can rupture an eye vessel, or having your face right up against the wind in a moving bus can expose you to germs. Diabetes is as prevalent as common cold in every household and there is no end to the list of causes that can make you suffer from it. While regular check-ups, medications, insulin shots can help you cope, there are certain measures that if followed, can enable you to avoid the risk of secondary yet fatal diseases. Diabetic nephropathy is one such condition.

When Kidney is affected to the extent that it cannot perform its functions(like excretion of wastes in urine, filtering blood from waste, maintaining electrolyte balance,etc.) properly, it is called as Nephropathy. The reason behind kidney damage could be many, but if diabetes is the prime cause, it is known as diabetic nephropathy in medical terms.

A few features of this disorder are as follows:

  1. The kidneys comprise of several small blood vessels, which perform the function of sifting waste from your blood. Diabetes at an advanced stage can impede smooth functioning of these vessels. As a result, the kidneys malfunction or a person faces kidney failure.
  2. Nephropathy brings along some other health issues as well. A person's blood pressure may increase as a result, thus making him or her prone to heart attacks and strokes. Sharp rise in cholesterol and triglyceride levels has also been noticed.
  3. A doctor will check for the presence of a protein called albumin in the patient's urine to know if you suffer from nephropathy or not. Other tests to determine the functioning of kidneys are - S.Creatinine, eGFR, Albumin/Creatinine Ratio (ACR), 24 Hour Urine Protein, Renal Function Tests, etc. A diabetic person should therefore go in for yearly tests.

In a given situation such as this, dialysis or kidney transplant comes to your aid. Both are done when kidney functions are irreversibly damaged. Dialysis can be of two kinds; Hemodialysis or Peritoneal dialysis. Dialysis (also called as Renal Replacement Therapy) remedies kidney damage and kidney failure by using a machine to extract salts, wastes and other fluids in excess from the blood to let your blood have a healthy composition. Dialysis should only be done under the supervision of an experienced nephrologist for best results. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can ask a free question.

For diabetes follow a diet low in carbohydrate, low in fat and high in fibre. Avoid bakery products. Avoid too much rice and potato. Avoid fried stuff. Avoid chocolate, cakes, ice cream, soft drinks and fruit juices. Eat lots of vegetables. Walk for at least 30 minutes a day for 5 days in a week. Medicine and insulin will work better if you follow diet and exercise.

Mr Mohsin, If your fasting sugar is closer to 100 mg and PP is around 150 to 160 mg / 100 ml, HbA1c<7%, then one can say diabetes is under control. But to keep it under control daily food intake has to be measured along with exercise, diet and drugs. Eating 1 date may be ok not more.
