Dear lybrate-user, Your dad was dependent on alcohol. It is usual for him to get withdrawal symptoms when he stops all of a sudden. He needs to be admitted and given plenty of Thiamine as injection or in drip and tablets. He needs tablet lorazepam every 2-3 hours depending on his withdrawal symptoms measured on a special scale in the ward. Uncomplicated withdrawal will subside with this treatment in 2-3 days. Complication can occur as fits, delirium, neuropathy etc. Those need more treatment. Just admit him to hospital nearby and they will take care.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. With appropriate treatment blood glucose levels should be well controlled, like fasting < 100 mg, PP 150 to 160 mg & HbA1c% <6.8. Since your glucose levels are not in control, means present treatment is not enough. One is drugs being taken should be improved and second is look at your diet & regular exercise. If you are interested in proper treatment then please come back with all the above mentioned details in a private conversation (paid consultation), then I will be able to give specific guidelines and even prescription. In this communication we are supposed to give only general guidelines, no prescriptions are allowed. Thanks.

Your weight for the height is high, you should focus on reducing your weight. Start with walking and exercising, that will help increase the hdl which is the good cholesterol, and it will also help reduce ldl which is bad cholesterol that results into blockage of arteries. Get your blood pressure and sugar checked regularly. You might need some medicines in order to keep the sugar and bp in check.

I am 42 years old all body weakness no mind any work. have cholesterol and diabetes. Please help.
High cholesterol can cause atherosclerotic heart disease or narrowed coronary arteries in the heart can cause the symptoms of angina, when theheart muscle is not provided with enough oxygen to function. Decreased blood supply to the brain may be due to narrowed small arteries in the brain or because the larger carotidarteries in the neck may become blocked. This can result in a transient ischmic attack or stroke. Peripheral artery disease describes gradual narrowing of the arteries that supply the legs. During exercise , if the legs do not get enough blood supply, they can develop pain , called claudication . Other arteries in the body may also be affected by plaque buildup causing them to narrow, including the mesenteric arteries to the intestine and the renal arteries to the kidney. Avoid fast foods,oily foods,junk foods,alcohol,smoking,fatty foods, non-veg.,avoid stress, take green veg., whole grain.garlic,. Take anti cholesterol medicines .

Diabetes During Pregnancy - Know The Best Ways To Control It!

Diabetes During Pregnancy - Know The Best Ways To Control It!

Pregnancy brings with it a set of challenges, and for a diabetic woman, these only increase further. Earlier, the risks of dealing with pregnancy and diabetes as a combination were too high. However, over the last few decades, things have changed. The age at which women are choosing to have a baby has gone up. On the other hand, the age of onset of diabetes has come down drastically.
These days, there are many diabetic women who go through pregnancy smoothly without major complications. Of course, there is extra care and precaution required, but it is not something that cannot be planned and managed well between the doctor and the mother-to-be.

The following are some rough guidelines for a pregnant diabetic woman.
Potential complications

  1. It increases the risk of polycystic ovaries, thereby making it difficult to conceive.
  2. Fluctuating sugar levels can be a reason for not being able to conceive, as the body does not see itself as healthy.
  3. It increased the chances of miscarriage.
  4. There are higher chances of birth defects in the developing baby due to very high sugar levels in the first trimester.

Preparation
If you are planning for a pregnancy, meet with your doctor to review your sugar levels. Chalk out a plan with your doctor, taking into account your diet and nutrition, exercise, lifestyle, and medications.

  1. Diet: Ensure you cautiously decide what and how to eat ahead of your pregnancy. Moving away from refined carbohydrates and processed foods towards wholesome food items like whole grains, fresh fruits and vegetables will make a difference.
  2. Exercise: Build an exercise routine to suit your body and keep yourself active. It is very important to stay active so that diabetes is under control.
  3. Lifestyle: Quit smoking and reduce alcohol use. This helps in managing stress also, which can help keep diabetes under check.
  4. Medications: Check with your doctor on the medicines you are taking and if dose adjustments are required to get sugar levels under control, plan them out.

During pregnancy, constant monitoring and vigilance is required to ensure diabetes is under control.

  1. Let your gynecologist know about your condition (stable/fluctuating), and if you are doubtful about them being able to handle your condition, do not hesitate to change.
  2. Many consider switching to oral medications as the risk of transmission to the baby is less and the control over sugar levels is better.
  3. Constant monitoring for daily blood sugars is essential.
  4. A regular, healthy lifestyle in terms of eating and sleeping should help keep the sugars under check.
  5. Constant monitoring of the baby is essential to ensure its normal growth with no developmental defects. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Gynaecologist.

Yes quality of life will improve for sure. He will be off the hd but he needs to continue immunosupressants like steroids and calcineurin inhibitors. He might be off insulin depending upon his daily insulin requirements.

If you are not taking any medicine you do not need medicines for this level of blood sugar. Avoid oily and high carb food. Increase some proteins and fiber in your diet.

Mr. S lybrate-user Rao, Thanks for the query. This is a kind of motion sickness. It is seen many individuals. If this occurs regularly then before taking a jorney one should use an antiemetic drug. That will invariably control it. High BP and /or diabetes per say do not affect. However, achieving good BP reduction and blood glucose control is also important. BP should be preferably 120 to 130 / 70 to 80 mm Hg & blood glucose should be Fasting<100 mg, PP 150 to 160 mg & HbA1c%<6.8. Another important point with you is your excess weight. You will have to consider reducing it to maintain a good health. Thanks.

Mr. lybrate-user, If your day's caloric intake is within the requirement of total calories based on weight, height and extent of workout, then there is no problem at all. As soy crunches give a good variety of proteins and probably least carbs. But it is equally important to keep blood glucose level in strict control with fasting closer to 100 mg, PP 150 to 160 mg & HbA1c%<6.8. Thanks.
