The target level of blood sugar of diabetic patient is FBS 70 to 130 mg/dl, PPBS < 180 mg/dl & HBA1C <7%.Your blood sugar is mild high. You may control it, by diet, exercise or higher dose of Gemer or change your medicine such as metformin 500 mg .Metformin is the first choice of diabetic patient, it does not cause hypoglycemia.

If your diet and sugar levels are controlled, you can eat 1 fruit (in number) daily or have juice of it, with exception of grapes, mangoes and sugarcane juice. Apple, orange, pomegrenade, lime, can be used regularly.

Sir my mom suffer from diabetes and always remain in doubt what to eat and what not. It would be a great help if you tell me the food items which she should take and which shouldn't.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Diabetes, often referred to by doctors as diabetes mellitus, describes a group of metabolic diseases in which the person has high blood glucose (blood sugar), either because insulin production is inadequate, or because the body's cells do not respond properly to insulin, or both. It is a difficult 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), & HbA1C (inform me) 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. There are different diet plans of varying calories for each person depending on his activity & life style. For diabetes, hypertension (high BP) and many long-term illness 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 with all details like your daily eating pattern and medicines you take. I assure you a proper guidance. If you keep in touch personally.

I used to take eltroxin25 since march 2015 andf now my thyroid level is good shall I discontinue eltroxin or suggest me any other since after starting im feeling very hungry and my weight has also increased.

Mr. lybrate-user, Hypothyroidism is a hormone deficiency disorder, hence there has to be a constant supplement of that hormone for lifetime. Therefore, treatment will have to go on for lifetime. If one is on treatment, then ideally TSH levels should be maintained between 3 to 4 mU/L, to be free from all the symptoms. Weight gain is in fact a common manifestation of hypothyroidism. So check TSH level and if it is higher than above mentioned, then there needs to be an increase in the dosage of thyroxine. Thanks.

I wants to lose weight of 15 kg I am hypothyroidism patient having tsh 3.32 taking 75 mm tablets daily.

PDDM, MHA, MBBS
General Physician, Nashik
Pay close attention to your food choice. ·        Eat less carbohydrate food sources like chapatti, rice, noodles, pasta, bread etc as they help in gaining weight and storing fat. ·        While having lunch or dinner eat vegetables and dal to fill your stomach rather eating lots of chapattis or rice. ·        Have a healthy breakfast like poha, idli, upma, plain dosa, oats, dalia or khichdi with vegetables. ·        Eat a balance diet including good quality proteins like: fish, lean chicken and eggs. If you are a vegetarian then include skimmed milk, low fat paneer, butter milk, soy bean or soy milk in your diet. ·        Avoid ghee, butter or vanaspati. Prepare your diet with vegetable oil like sunflower, safflower soybean or olive oil. ·        Eat plenty of salads. ·        Eat fresh fruits including apple, orange, pineapple, papaya, sweet lime, berries, guava, watermelon, mask melon etc. ·        Avoid eating outside junk and fried foods like pizza, pasta, roll, burgers, cakes, chocolates and cookies. ·        Have an early dinner. The earlier the better, giving your system more time to digest the food. ·        Avoid cold drinks/alcohol as they add empty calories to your diet. ·        Avoid fat enriched milk products like cheese, sweets, full fat cream etc. ·        Drink 3 liters of water in a day. ·        Try to have less sugar in food and beverages. ·        Try to drink 2 cups of green tea in a day as green tea helps in weight loss by aiding digestion. ·        Avoid red meat like mutton, beef, lamb or pork. ·        Eat sprouts or roasted chana, whenever you feel hungry.

I want to ask is it necessary to take thyroid medication if my t3 and t4 are normal but tsh is raised from normal range. Kindly tell me.

MBBS, DNB (General Medicine)
Endocrinologist, Delhi
T3 and t4 may remain normal. Tsh being high indicates a signal that your thyroid gland is under stress. Especially so if your tsh is beyond 10. Free t3 and free t4 have higher significance in this regard then just total t3 and total t4. It is highly recommended that you keep on taking the medicines if you're already taking or you get tested for anti tpo to get the full picture before we start medicines.

This shows that you are diabetic and need management. First of all avoid high sugar foods, consume fiber rich food. Do exercise 40 to 50 minutes daily. Recheck your sugar after 1 month. If it is still high then you need medicines.

You have a high bmi. Though your sugars appear fine but would still like to see your hba1c along with your blood pressure. High bmi definitely makes you prone for metabolic complications like hypertension and other cardiovascular diseases along with both micro and macro vascular complications of diabetes. Best will be to exercise regularly, maintain a balanced diet and take proper medicines. Hope that solves your query.
