Questions and answers for endocrinology

Hello. After covid, my blood sugar has been around 10 for more than a month. The diet did not help to a decrease sugar. I really would not like to take pills all the time. Can I expect that dietary sugar will start to decrease after all? What next steps would you recommend me to take?
Answer: 05.07.2021

Hello. In the postcovid period, an increase in blood sugar up to 12 mmol/l is possible, especially if hormones were used in the treatment, followed by the expected decrease to normal. It is recommended to follow a diet with blood sugar control before meals and 2 hours after. But it is advisable to consult with endocrinologist, undergo follow-up examination (tests, ultrasonography), so as not to miss severe endocrine disorders and the development of their complications, since Covid affects the entire endocrine profile.

Hello! My daughter was diagnosed with adrenal hyperplasia five years ago at the age of 14.5 years. Since then, she has been taking hormonal contraceptives for treatment. Our current doctor refuses to cancel the drugs, saying that she will have to take it all her life. Please tell me if it is possible to refuse from taking drugs with this diagnosis? What negative health consequences this can entail?
Answer: 05.07.2021

Hello. The duration of hormone therapy and its need depends on how the disease began, the severity of the manifestations and the treatment goals (for example, the patient's desire to become pregnant). Additional examination is necessary: ultrasonography of pelvic organs on a certain day of the cycle and several adrenal hormones in dynamics. Transfer from oral contraceptives to other drugs or even their cancellation is not excluded. But this can be done only after patient intake and having all the necessary additional examinations, since abrupt withdrawal of oral contraceptives can lead to the bleeding development.

Hello. This may be a sign of other endocrine organ failure. For an accurate diagnosis, additional examination of pituitary and adrenal glands in terms of hormonal state is necessary.
