Hi Doc, No family history of having sugar. 1st August of my fasting sugar level came 91. Then I was taking roseday F (anti cholesterol tab) for 20 DAYS and I stopped taking it as I came to know that can cause sugar. I feel dizzy from two weeks so I got done Random blood sugar test which came 85 (post 4 hours of breakfast) I am worried whether I should go for fasting blood sugar test now?

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. The reports about statins causing diabetes are highly exaggerated. There are lacks of patients or should I say crores, taking statins for correcting cholesterol. So there is no worry. Your blood glucose levels are fine. There is no reason to do any further testing. Thanks.

I am 27 year old, recently diagnosed with hypothyroidism 6 months back, currently on 50ug thyronorm for 3 months and now Sep-17 I am 5 weeks pregnant, my TSH value currently is 6.37 and my doctor told to continue with same 50ug only, my doubt is to increase the thyronorm dosage from 50 ug or not as my gynecologist told it's fine usually tsh values will fluctuate and no need to increase dose of 50 ug.

lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Since you are pregnant it is necessary to maintain TSH in the following manner: 1st trimester :0.1 to 2.5 mU/L, 2nd trimester: 0.2 to 2.5 mU/L & 3rd trimster: 0.3 to 3.0 mU/L. These levels are very critical for proper development of fetus and desired outcome of the pregnancy. Hence you have to increase the dose by at least 12.5 mcg to 25 mcg per day, then check TSH after 4 weeks. If the level is within the recommended range for that period of pregnancy, then continue the same dose. If level is higher than the recommended then there has to be a further increase in dosage of levothyroxine by 12.5 mcg. I hope things are clear. It is wrong to say that TSH levels fluctuate. So please increase the dosage. If you have any doubts please come back. Take care. Thanks.

How Can High Diabetes Affect Your Pregnancy?

How Can High Diabetes Affect Your Pregnancy?

Pregnancy brings with it the need to be extra careful about the overall well-being of the mother-to-be. Extreme caution has to be taken in managing health, as antibiotics and a lot of other treatment modalities are best avoided during pregnancy. With diabetes becoming common in the younger ages and women choosing to delay pregnancy, there are multiple women who are diabetic and choose to get pregnant later in life.

With diabetes being a chronic and a lifestyle condition, it definitely has its effects on pregnancy. However, the key is to manage diabetes cautiously in such a way that its effects on pregnancy, both the mother and the developing baby, are minimal. The increased blood sugar levels from the mother pass on to the baby, so keeping a close watch on the blood sugar levels is very important.

  1. The maximum effect of diabetes on the baby is during the first few weeks of pregnancy. It is when the vital organs (brain, heart, lungs and kidneys) are forming, and high blood sugar levels can be harmful. This is slightly tricky as most women realise they could be pregnant only after about 6 weeks. If pregnancy is planned, it is best advisable to keep a check on sugar levels much ahead of the pregnancy.
  2. The baby could be used to high levels of sugar while in the womb, and once delivered, it could have too low sugar levels. This needs to be monitored.
  3. Preeclampsia, which is increased protein in the urine and high blood pressure, can happen during the second trimester. This may require the baby to be delivered prematurely.
  4. Babies born to diabetic mothers are often bigger. The baby’s pancreas is used to higher sugar levels and so the extra sugar gets converted to fat, which is the reason for the bigger babies. This may also necessitate C-sections.
  5. Pregnancy can induce the development of diabetic retinopathy, which may prevent vaginal delivery, as the woman may not be able to exert the required pressure.
  6. Abnormal calcium and magnesium levels, which need to be monitored for a while after birth
  7. Most diabetic women reach full term if the sugar levels have been under good control.

Diabetic pregnant women are high at risk. However, with advanced medical care, these risks and complications are managed very well producing healthy babies from normal deliveries with effectively no harm to the mother’s health. Once a diabetic woman tests positive, it is advisable to seek medical help to plan diet/meal plan, physical activities, exercise regimen, lifestyle changes, and medication dose adjustments. This is not a one-time activity, but needs to be closely monitored with daily blood sugar levels throughout the pregnancy. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an Endocrinologist.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. For checking blood glucose presently it has to be done with either a glucometer or in a clinical laboratory. So far there are no "mobile apps" developed. What you get are all pranks. Hence can not be relied at all. Doctors and labs are available every where in the country. Thanks.

If you want to increase weight then you can include fibres to your diet. U can have oats, wheat flakes, oats cheela, oats idli in your diet. Because of pancreatitis you should not take milk more than 500 ml in a day or less that 500 ml. Do not skip your meals have short and frequent meals. Avoid eating fruits: mango, litchi, banana, cheeku, grapes, juices, aireated drinks etc. Team Nutrihealth.
