Dear Doctor, I am having diabetic and hypertension for the last 12 years. I am 51 years old. I am presently taking the following medicines: Glycomet GP 0.5 mg 2-0-2 Zita 100 mg 1-0-0 Atorva 10 0 -0-1 Olmax 40 1-0-0 Revelol am 5 /50 - 0-0-1 Presently on a recent checking my BP levels and cholestrol levels seems to be fine and normal. BP 90/130 Total Cholestrol : 118, Trigliceride: 127 ,LDL : 60 ,HDL :45. I presume my BP and cholestrol and BP levels are fine with these numbers. My concern is diabetics. Earlier 3 years back my medication was Pioglit 15 , after its so called ban, doctor changed the medicine to Glycomet GP 0.5 mg which i am using for the last three and half years. My fasting & pp sugar initially even after medication happens to be 130 / 170 levels. However during the last 4 months my sugar started shooting up , partly due to official preoccupations. My HbA1c levels are nearing 8 and morning fasting levels ( vary between 170 to 200) depending on the food what i take at night. Doctor asked me to increase the dosage of medicine and now i am using Glycomet GP 0.5 mg 2-0-2 instead of earlier 1-0-1. Zita i am using only 100 mg. I am not seeing any change in sugar levels. I s the combination right ? should i need to change it ? Please guide. Since i have a touring job for 15 days a month, i resort to outside food and i do walking. Please guide.

Most probably the surgery must have been by key hole method giving minimum cuts and trauma. Your doctor has suggested you to eat everything except fats. Trust him. Bad fats are not good for anyone, not even a 10 years old kid. After gall bladder surgery the appetite becomes better as there is no fear of pain after eating. Eat whatever you like but do reduce your weight the healthy way by eating right and exercising according to your constitution and physique. Walking is best exercise which is meditative too. Drink warm liquids more often as gall bladder juice-bile has no reservoir now as gall bladder is removed and bile is flowing constantly in the food pipe. Take warm water with honey, green tea, clear soups, plain warm water more often to wash away the acid and bile juice in stomach. Hope you know about bad fats. Let me repeat-street food and trans fats present in packed foods. But do take good fats like a spoon of pure ghee/butter + katori of assorted nuts everyday. Seasonal vegetables and fruits-lots drink a glass of warm water with fresh lemon juice + spoon of honey on empty stomach in morning-it does burn fats and extra sugars. Say no to empty calories like sugar and sweets, fizzy cold drinks, packed juices. Eat fresh fruits. If worried about heart get basic tests done like ecg, echo, stress test, blood test for sugar & total lipids. Get back here with reports and progress of weight loss. Only 10 kgs need to be shed @ 5 kg /month.

It would be best if you sit down with him and speak your heart out. You need to resolve the situation it can not go on like this forever otherwise one of you will fall apart. Ask him very politely as to what he feels, wishes, what is lacking in the relation. A person gets attracted outside relation usually when something is lacking in one's own relationship you need to build up on that. Ask him what does he want out of the relation, have a open heart to heart conversation. Share your wishes, desires your kid's future. Consult with me for counseling and guidance regarding same. All the best.

5 Causes of Heart Failure

DM - Cardiology, MD-Internal Medicine , MBBS
Cardiologist, Delhi
5 Causes of Heart Failure

Heart failure occurs when the heart fails to pump blood around the body and organs for oxygen and nutrients. As blood moves through the heart and body at a slower rate, pressure in the heart increases. The chambers of the heart stretch to hold more blood to be able to pump through the body. This helps the blood to move but eventually the heart muscle walls weaken, unable to pump blood efficiently. The kidneys, in response cause the body, to retain fluids. The leakage of fluid in the tissues and the organs congests the heart, leading to heart failure.

Any of the following conditions can be responsible for weakening the heart and causing heart failure.

1. Coronary artery disease: this is a disease of the arteries supplying blood and oxygen to the heart that causes decreased blood flow to heart muscle. If the arteries get blocked or narrowed (due to the buildup of fatty deposits), the heart fails to get oxygen and nutrients, which may eventually lead to heart failure.

2. Heart attack: if the artery becomes suddenly blocked or the plaques formed by fatty deposits rupture, it can lead to a heart attack. This happens due to the formation of a blood clot which may block blood flow to an area of heart muscle.

3. High blood pressure: high blood pressure puts an extra strain on the heart for it to work harder to circulate blood throughout the body. As a result, the heart muscle may become stiff or weak to effectively pump blood.

4. Heart muscle weakness: this condition can have many causes including diseases, infections, drug and alcohol abuse. Genetic factors may also contribute to the weakening of heart muscles.

5. Other diseases: chronic diseases like diabetes, HIV, hyperthyroidism or a buildup of iron or protein can also lead to heart failure.

Plzzzzz help me.
You have to quit cold turkey because the body and mind will torture you endlessly while attempting a reduction in smoking. The tobacco tar in cigarette smoke lines your lung with huge patches that make that portion dysfunctional. Your oxygen carrying capacity is jeopardized, and breathing is impinged on. But don’t be discouraged because it is not too late even now to reverse all the ill-effects of smoking. I don’t know what other organs could be damaged but do go for a thorough medical check-up to assess the effects of your abuse. Regarding improving your lungs, do a lot of aerobic exercise breathing through your nostrils only. Then there are a lot of deep breathing exercises in Yoga which you can learn too. Deep breathing cleanses your system and lungs and restores it to good health. Deep breathing uses the 80% of the lungs which are not normally used in normal breathing and even when exerting yourself. The greatest effect is in the lungs because this substance is processed through the respiratory system directly through the lung surface. When quitting, you must take one day at a time; though you must give up all smoking at once, and promptly. If you look too far ahead you will get discouraged and will give up. If you sit and count the number of days you have given up, that will also focus too much on achievement. You must focus on the here and now, on that day to be precise. After all quitting is not that easy due to many factors. So even if you fail one day, you must try and try again. Very few people succeed in their first attempt. Your persistence will eventually pay off. The urge to discontinue is hampered by many factors but the worst of them is the conditioning. In fact, these conditions can exist all through the day, unlike other addictions. But your desire to want to stop is the most important factor. It is important to find out about the ill-effects of smoking to have a reason that alarms you about continuing the habit. The information is really scary but true and you must remind yourself about this every day. The nicotine in tobacco smoke stimulates the heartbeat to raise the blood pressure in no time at all. So you must avoid it like the plague: it is just very bad medicine for you. In fact, it is highly toxic too. You will need to stop smoking or consuming any tobacco related items with immediate effect. You should start vigorous exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. Do deep breathing exercises every time you feel like smoking (try Yoga), and replace the oral urge with some healthy food substitute to satiate the need. You may also take hard candy or chew gum. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine gums and nicotine patches, for a little while until the smoking drive reduces, substantially. You may also join Smokers Anonymous in your city where the support is really extraordinary for like-minded people who are also in the same situation. Keep yourself occupied or engaged with interesting activities during the times when it is most tempting. Keep the company of non-smokers for some time i.e. at least for the first 21 days. Above all announce it to everyone that you have quit smoking. Here’s a piece of very good advice: even if you accidentally/willfully take a cigarette, it is not the end of the world – you can start the cessation all over again. You must persevere with the best support until you defeat this addiction. Counseling is very useful in the initial stages and when temptations are at their highest. You could also join twitter2quit program and enjoy its success to give up smoking.

Good to know that your reports for heart are normal, blood sugar pp levels are under control. Keep it up reduce anxiety. Change food habits so that there is no need to take ppi s group for acidity (lots of side effects are reported over long term use) drink some warm liquid every 2 hours so that acid in stomach is washed away, does not get chance to get collected. You can take warm water with lemon and honey (calories? cut it in other items) warm clear soup. Green tea with lemon coconut water-fresh. Ginger tea. Dry toast absorbs acid too but look into calories and make adjustments. Good luck.

Mr. M Ramprasad lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. The dawn phenomenon, sometimes called the dawn effect, is an early-morning (usually between 2 a.m. And 8 a.m.) increase in blood sugar (glucose) relevant to people with diabetes.[1] It is different from chronic Somogyi rebound in that dawn phenomenon is not associated with nocturnal hypoglycemia. From above explanation it must be clear to you that your problem is not Dawn effect. Sometimes if night dose is high (whether Insulin or oral drugs) there may be a lower level of glucose in the early morning leading to hypoglycemia. That too is not present. What may be needed is proper adjustment of night dose and food intake. Thanks.
