Hello, Thanks for the query. Ideally blood glucose should be maintained as close as possible to normal levels. Fasting should be < 100 mg, PP 150 to 160 mg/100 ml & HbA1c% < 6.%. She should take appropriate treatment to maintain glucose levels as mentioned. Apart from giving specific anti-diabetic treatment it is essential to give a properly planned restricted diet that provides exact amount of calories based on ideal body weight, extent of daily exercise and blood glucose levels. It is necessary to see that glucose level does not go too low, (hypoglycemia). Thanks.

Please recheck if you are following a healthy lifestyle and are disciplined in your routine. Please read about Diabetes and it's management through lifestyle changes and proper medical treatment . Learn Yoga as it is gentle and yet very effective in rejuvenating your body and mind naturally. When you balance both these aspects (lifestyle and medications , then you can expect very good results. Homeopathy may be taken for overall well-being (as it corrects the metabolism and helps the body to heal naturally by stimulating the immune system. You can contact me for a private consultation if interested.

Gastrointestinal Complications of Diabetes!

Gastrointestinal Complications of Diabetes!

Diabetes is a systemic disease that affects almost every part of your body. Of these, the digestive system is the most badly affected. While gastrointestinal disorders are commonly experienced by everyone, diabetics have a much higher risk of suffering from indigestion, food poisoning, gallstones and ulcers. Some of the most common gastrointestinal problems experienced by diabetics are:

  1. Gastroparesis: High blood sugar levels can damage the vagus nerve that controls the emptying of the stomach. As a result fo this damage, the muscles of the stomach and intestines do not work optimally leading to a condition known as Gastroparesis. This is a condition where the stomach is not able to empty itself properly and the digestion process is slowed down. Gastroparesis can cause bloating, nausea, pain in the abdomen, heart burn and a loss of appetite. It can also cause undigested food in the stomach to harden and form lumps that block food from moving into the intestines. This disease cannot be cured but can be managed with medication and a special diet.
  2. Ulcers: Stomach ulcers can be described as open sores that develop on the inner lining of the stomach, oesophagus and beginning of the small intestine. These ulcers form as a result of bacterial infections. Diabetes weakens a person’s immune system thus reducing their ability to fight these infections and increasing the risk of developing ulcers. Diabetes also increases the risk of bleeding from these ulcers and secondary infections that may arise from it.
  3. Yeast infections: Diabetics are extremely vulnerable to yeast infections. This is aggravated by fluctuation in blood sugar levels and can extend from the mouth to the oesophagus. Common symptoms of this type of yeast infection are pain in the throat and difficulty swallowing. It may also cause heartburn and intestinal bleeding if left untreated.
  4. Celiac sprue: This condition creates gluten allergies and causes the inflammation and thinning of the small intestine’s mucosa. In some cases, this condition may interfere with the absorption of food and lead to diarrhoea and weight loss.
  5. Diabetic diarrhoea: Patients who have been suffering from diabetes for a few years may experience an increased urge to pass stools frequently. This is usually related to gastric problems in the colon which cause fluids to move at a faster than normal speed through the small bowel and colon. It may also be caused due to the secretion of fluids in the colon and improper absorption of food.

There is no home remedy. Only thing you can do up to certain extent is to postpone overt diabetes by following a healthy lifestyle. Avoid taking sugar jaggery honey sweets excess of sweet fruits like banana mangoes grapes cheekoo etc. Use whole grain flour instead of refined one (maida). Avoid junk food aereted drinks alcohol smoking etc. Exercise regularly. Monitor blood sugar. Start medicine if suggested by your doctor.
