Treatment for type 2 diabetes includes monitoring your blood sugar levels and using medications or insulin when needed. Doctors also recommend losing weight through diet and exercise. ... If you start eating healthier, get more exercise, and lose weight, you can reduce your symptoms.

Hello sir mere father ko sugar hai or unke foot mai ek jakham hai water se jal gaya tha one month ho gaya hai her din dressing karwate hai jakham sukhne ka naam nahi le raha hum ko kya karna chaiye ?

Regarding online consultation there are certain points which all should know and follow. 1) the description of the diseases should be complete in all respects, including any tests done and any medicines already taking. Just saying I have diabetes since 10 years and taking metformin cannot help a discerning doctor a scientific advice. 2) your place and name and mail id and phone number should be in the question. It is necessary at times to know where you stay to give a good advice. (for example if there the climate is warm or cold and many other factors) 3) it is necessary to keep in regular touch for some diseases like diabetes and hypertension. So make it a point to be in touch by asking private questions. And repeat the essential point of the previous question to give a continuing answer. All these are said with intention to give a scientifically correct answer and talk as if in a regular consultation about which I am very keen to. 4) for personalised attention and follow up ask privately and it is better to make online payment if you are asked to by the doctor. It involves his time and dedication to give you expert advice after studying your problem. Ask personally in case of doubts about any medical matter. it is not as easy task to control blood sugar in the desired normal range. Whatever we eat is metabolised to sugar in the body to provide energy for our daily activities. For the absolute control, one has to monitor his / her blood sugar at regular intervals (self-monitoring of blood glucose? smbg). Though difficult, this can be done by a glucometer and keep a record. Get an idea of fasting sugar (fbs) and 2 hours after food (ppbs) and check before dinner and after every major food. The basic idea is to reduce the food intake to 1/3 of what you take now. The dictum of sugar control is diet, exercise, diet + medicine and at later stage medicine+ insulin will be needed. For sugar control there is the need for regular advice and follow up. Just one time consultation or advice is not enough to guide a diabetic in scientifically & medically correct manner. For giving you regular follow up you ask me privately with all details like your daily eating pattern and medicines you take. I assure you a proper guidance. If you keep in touch.

Being a diabetic, it's important to get your weight under control, for nerve compression you could try non surgical treatment, you need however to be aware that progression of the nerve pressure can result in paralysis of the legs.

Diabetes and its Impact on Your Eyesight

MBBS, MD, FAIIDR
Diabetologist, Vadodara
Diabetes and its Impact on Your Eyesight

If you are diabetic, know that high blood sugar level can take a severe toll on your eyes in the form of blurry vision, cataract, glaucoma and retinopathy, if left unchecked. It can even lead to partial/complete blindness in young adults. Nonetheless, a strict control over your blood sugar count would prove effective in preventing such eye complications in the long run.

How does diabetes affect the eyes?

  1. Blurry Vision: Diabetes can cause swelling of the eye and damage to your vision. In case you are already using glasses, it might bring about fluctuations in your optical power. Once your blood sugar count gets back to the normal level; that is within the range of 70 to 130 milligrams per deciliter, your vision would be normal again; though this might take some time (about 3 months).

  2. Cataract: Eye lens works just like a camera, helping you to focus on a particular object. Cataract is a condition wherein this lens gets clouded with debris. Nevertheless, diabetic patients are more vulnerable to cataracts as compared to others. It has to be removed with a surgery wherein an artificial lens replaces the blurry eye lens.

  3. Glaucoma: Pressure starts building up within the eyes when fluids do not get drained out normally. This damages the nerves and blood vessels, thereby causing vision loss, blurred vision, watery eyes and headaches. Generally, glaucoma can be cured with laser, surgery, eye drops or medicines. Medications do help in alleviating eye pressure, reducing excessive fluid production and facilitating drainage. Having said that, diabetics are likely to develop neovascular glaucoma, a rare complication wherein new blood vessels form on the iris (the ring-shaped colored region in the eye), obstructing the normal fluid flow and further increasing the eye pressure.

  4. Diabetic Retinopathy: The retina is a cluster of cells behind the eyes that absorb light and converts them into images which are then transmitted to the brain through the optic nerve. High blood sugar levels damage the tiny blood vessels of the retina, leading to a condition called Diabetic retinopathy.

The stages of diabetic retinopathy

The retina requires a constant blood supply via a network of small blood vessels. In due course of time, a high blood sugar count might damage those blood vessels; primarily across three stages:

  1. Background Retinopathy: This is a condition wherein tiny lumps develop in your blood vessels, causing slight bleeding that usually does not affect your eye sight.

  2. Pre-proliferative Retinopathy: This is a condition characterized by significant bleeding from the eyes as a result of the blood vessels being severely affected.

  3. Proliferative Retinopathy: Proliferative retinopathy is a condition wherein new blood vessels and scar tissues that bleed easily develop on the retina, leading to vision loss.

Are you at risk?

The risks of Diabetic retinopathy increase if one is suffering from diabetes. Apart from this, certain other factors could also aggravate the chances of this disorder:

  1. Rise or fall in blood sugar

  2. Rise in the blood pressure level

  3. High cholesterol

  4. Pregnancy

  5. Excessive consumption of tobacco

When should you call a doctor?

  1. When you experience spots in your vision

  2. In case of blurred and fluctuating vision

  3. Impaired color vision

  4. Sudden loss of vision

  5. Redness and pain in the eyes

These signs serve as an early wake up call. However, it’s not mandatory for these signs to indicate towards diabetic retinopathy.

How to protect your eyes from diabetes and keep them healthy?

  1. Get your eyes checked periodically and try and maintain a steady blood sugar count.

  2. Take the prescribed medicines on time.

  3. Try to achieve and then maintain optimal weight levels.

  4. Avoid a sedentary lifestyle and engage in some sort of physical activity.

  5. Control your cholesterol levels by picking the right kind of foods.

  6. Abstain from smoking and limit alcohol consumption.

  7. Opt for a healthy diet comprising of green and leafy vegetables, oily fish, tuna, salmon; protein rich foods such as beans, nuts and eggs; citrus fruits such as oranges; pork and oysters. 

    If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.

The higher your blood sugar levels, the more hemoglobin you'll have with sugar attached. An A1C level of 6.5 percent or higher on two separate tests indicates you have diabetes. A result between 5.7 and 6.4 percent is considered prediabetes, which indicates a high risk of developing diabetes.

T3: 90 T4: 6.2 TSH: 6.43 Age 76 Male, Married should I take medicine for this hypothyroidism?

should I take medicine for this hypothyroidism?
Professor V lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. TSH 6.43 mU/L is considered as sub-clinical hypothyroidism. No treatment is advocated at this level. Another important aspect is at the age of 76 years, a slightly higher TSH actually is considered good enough. SO there is no need for any treatment. You may check the TSH levels once in six months or so to see if there is any further increase. Thanks.

4 Ways Sugar Impacts Sex Life

Sexologist Clinic

4 Ways Sugar Impacts Sex Life

Sugar is an important source of calories in the body as it can provide immediate energy to the body after consumption. Sugar being a simple carbohydrate is digested quickly and released into the bloodstream to be used as energy. However, too much sugar in the bloodstream at once can cause a host of disorders in the body including affecting one's sex life. Outlined below are the ways how sugar adversely affects sex life-

1. Impairs the gene that regulates sex hormones - Glucose and fructose are synthesized in the liver, where the excess is converted into fat. When fat synthesis rate goes up in the body, it affects SHBG (sex hormone binding globulin) gene in the body. This gene is responsible for regulating the levels of testosterone and estrogen in the body. Hence, in this case, the affected person becomes highly susceptible to infertility.
2. Lowers testosterone levels - Indulging in a diet that consists of too much sugar affects insulin resistance. Due to this, testosterone levels drop in both men and women. This causes disorders related to sexual function such as erectile dysfunction and also reduces sex drive.

3. Fatigue and reduced energy levels - Foods high in sugar cause temporary spikes in blood sugar which in turn results in fatigue, thus reducing sex drive. It also decreases levels of Orexin, a neurotransmitter that regulates feelings of arousal in the body, causing fatigue and lethargy.
4. Increases stressIncreased stress levels as a result of sugar consumption occur when high insulin levels cause the body to produce cortisol, a stress hormone. Too much cortisol in the body decreases libido. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Sexologist.

On Which Type Of Diabetes Metabolic Surgery Work On

Hi!

This is Dr. Tulip. I am a Bariatric and Laparoscopic Surgeon practicing at Dr. Tulip Hospital, 4th block, Koramangala.

We all know that once a diabetic , always a diabetic. But now we have something called as metabolic surgery by which one can be totally free from Diabetes. I mean you can stop your diabetic medications and still your sugar can be in normal limits. You don't need to take any oral diabetic medications and you need not take any insulin. But is this surgery helpful for all types of diabetics? No, we need to be a little careful and a little choosy about this. This surgery is good for, it helps Type 2 diabetics.

Type 2 Diabetics are those people who develop diabetes after the age of 30. They don't have a family history like their parents, grandparents would have had diabetes but those people who develop diabetes in childhood or in their teens less than 30 years are most likely to be Type 1 diabetics wherein the body is not secreting any insulin, the pancreas is not having any insulin to secrete, wherein the surgery the metabolic surgery will not help. Now, is every type 2 diabetic eligible for this surgery? Yes , but we also need to see the amount of pancreatic reserve that is present in that patient. For example, if the patient is suffering from diabetes for 4 to 5 years, the reserve will be much better.

But if they're suffering from diabetes from 15 to 25 years, then the reserve will be a little less and hence the results may not be very good. But all said and done, the results will definitely better. Now, how do we check the pancreatic reserve? There is a blood test which is called as the C-peptide. When we assess this value, if it is more than one, that means the pancreas has a good reserve and the results would be very good. Now how early do we expect the person to be free from diabetes after the surgery?

Even as early as 24 hours after the surgery, the person can be free from diabetes. Now, in some cases where the pancreatic Reserve is not very good then the patient might have to take one tablet, one oral hypoglycemic, maybe for a month or two and then the person can get totally out of diabetes.

Hello, Thanks for the query. Usually Neomercazole tablets are given for 12 to 18 months, to bring down the overactivity of thyroid gland. It is better if you continue for a few more months till TSH come up a bit more. Then you might discontinue the drug. But thyroid testing has to be done once in six months to see if there is no excess activity. Thanks.
