Patient discussion about elder

Q. Here is a challenging question for you. Do you look young or old for your age? Hi,Here is a challenging question for you. Do you look young or old for your age?

A. Unfortunately I look older than my age, people say that I look 22-25. However I'm just 20. I'm not a smoker, I don't drink alcohol every week, so I have no idea. :)

Q. I have a 16 month old, I was just wondering what is a good age to indroduce soda? I have a friend who already indroduced soda to her 2 year old. At the time her child was only 13 months.

A. Why give her that? Even as adults, there's no special benefit from soda (or other carbonated beverages), and as a child the nutritionally-poor soda may make your child feel full so he or she may not want to eat more important food such as vegetables or protein.

Q. My elder sister is 29 years old, 150 cm tall, into her ninth month of pregnancy. she had a sugar test My elder sister is 29 years old, 150 cm tall, into her ninth month of pregnancy. she had a sugar test done during her first trimester, which revealed her blood sugar to be 95 mg/dl. My doctor asked her to go for a 75 g GTT at 6 months and the readings were: fasting sugar - 90 mg/dl, 1hour: 144 mg/dl and 2 hour: 114 mg/dl. At the beginning of pregnancy, her weight was 62 Kg and now she weigh 72Kg. A random sugar test at 32 weeks reported blood sugar to be 105 mg/dl. she continued with her normal food cravings, which were a little high on sugar levels since she mostly enjoyed eating sweets. She wants to know whether or not she suffering from gestational diabetes?

A. Gestational diabetes is also diagnosed based on plasma glucose values measured during the OGTT. Blood glucose levels are checked four times during the test. If your blood glucose levels are above normal at least twice during the test, you have gestational diabetes. Below shows the results for the OGTT for gestational diabetes.

Fasting: 95 mg/dL or higher
At 1 hour: 180 mg/dL or higher
At 2 hours: 155 mg/dL or higher
At 3 hours: 140 mg/dL or higher

So your sister does not have Gestational diabetes.
