Chest pain, heart attack, angioplasty and stint. Is this what diabetes about? Sudden onset of severe chest discomfort is uncommon in diabetic patients. Most often, some shortness of breath, abdominal discomfort. Often heart attack is a “Silent Killer” in diabetics. Look at all the major hospitals and over 50% of all the patients getting heart attacks, strokes, kidney failure are diabetic patients. All of them have been poorly managed, whether it is a patient mistake or that of the doctor. It really does not matter. All of these are preventable provided the right treatment and advise was given and the patient regularly managed. Diabetes is a close interaction of the doctor and the patient. It has to be a team effort. More and more patients will end up in hospital if the diabetes which is a disease of blood vessels is managed properly. We need centers of excellence which specialize in the care of the diabetic patients. Let us help you at the Diabetes & Hypertension Center. For more info www.diabeteshypertension.com.

Best Diabetes doctor. Best Kidney specialist. WHAT IS DIABETES? Its full name is Diabetes Mellitus, but it’s generally called Diabetes. It is a medical term for a group of chronic diseases in which the body fails to complete the conversion of certain foods into energy. Normally, during digestion, the body changes sugar, starch, and other foods into a form of sugar called glucose. The blood carries this glucose to the body’s cells, where, with the help of insulin (a hormone produced in the pancreas), it changes into quick energy for immediate use or storage for future needs. This process of turning food into energy is crucial, because the body depends on energy for everything from thinking to physical activity. In Diabetes, the food is turned into glucose readily enough but cannot enter the body’s cells as lack of insulin production or its effect on the cells in the body. The most common forms of Diabetes are Type I and Type II. In Type I, the person’s pancreas does not produce enough insulin so the supply of glucose can be used. As a result, very high blood sugar and other metabolic abnormalities occur. In the absence of insulin, the metabolic abnormality is quite severe. As a result, these people are picked up quite early because of their symptoms. In Type II, the pancreas produces enough insulin, but the body’s cells can’t use it properly. This means that the unused glucose once again causes high blood sugars. Prevalence of Diabetes in The United States There are about 18 million people with Diabetes in the United States; half of them are still not diagnosed. About 90-95% of these people have Type II Diabetes. Diabetes and its complications are the sixth leading cause of death in the United States, outranked by heart disease and cancer. Diabetes is a major cause of blindness in adults, and causes diabetics to suffer heart attacks twice as often as non-diabetics. The life expectancy of those with some form of Diabetes is one/third shorter than the general population. The most important thing is to recognize Diabetes early so the treatment can be started before the disease has had a chance to damage your health.
In the medical treatment of hypertension, there are many factors to take into account before starting treatment. The medical conditions of the patient, Obesity, Life style, diet and ethnic background. Life style modification comprises of low salt, exercise and stress reduction with relaxation exercise with things like Yoga and Meditation. It is very important to watch the salt in the diet. The patient’s sleep is also important. Snoring is associated with obstructive sleep apnea and resistant and severe hypertension. Walking is a great unwinding exercise and decreases the adrenaline associated with high blood pressure. A physician has to take into account the pre morbid condition of the patient. We also have to take into account if the patient has diabetes, obesity, heart disease or kidney disease. This is not a comprehensive advice regarding high blood pressure.

PCOD, PCOS Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome is a common complex metabolic disorderin young females. It is an insulin resistant state that is also responsible for type II diabetes. It is going to be seen more often and often poorly treated by doctors, because it encompasses dermatologic, gynecological, endocrine and psychological problem. Only a physician who can look at it holistically can completely treat PCOD properly. In this condition a garland pattern of cysts develop in the ovary and start producing abnormal hormones. Excessive hair growth on face, chin, lips and other parts of the body is very common. As a result patients end up in waxing parlors and laser clinics. This can be devastating for a young female. All these treatment are not going to be successful, unless the hormonal imbalance is resolved in PCOD. While at the same time male pattern baldness and thinning of hair is very common. Acne is another traumatic experience and sometimes may be very severe. Again they will see a number of dermatologists for acne, but proper treatment of the hormonal imbalance will give very gratifying results. There is also associated black pigmentation on the face, neck, arm pit and other parts of the body. One of the common problems is central obesity associated with menstrual abnormalities in young girls and women. As time goes on this leads to infertility and patients end up in fertility clinics for IPF ( In Vitro fertilization). But only when the metabolic derangement is resolved, fertility is assured even without the expensive procedure of IVF. The irregular bleeding can be very embarrassing and may lead to anxiety and depression. Emotional distress ranging from anxiety to depression is very common. Hence in the treatment of PCOS an experienced physician in this area is crucial for the success of medical treatment. Eventually patients will go on to develop type II diabetes.
