Mr. Lybrate-user, your thyroid test results show that there is subclinical hypothyroidism present. This does not need any treatment right now, unless there are any symptoms related to. Plus you should avoid soy beans, soy containing products, cabbage, cauliflower, radish, broccoli, peanuts, mustard and coffee. Consume more of green leafy vegetables and salads and fruits. Use whole grain flour for chapati and roti. Plus exercise regularly to avoid weight gain.

It will be much better to first control the TSH and all symptoms before going for another modality of treatment. You are, in the perimenopausal period which is adding to the problems. If you like, please contact me for discussion and advice.

The cause of your boils is ineffective digestion. Take triphala powder 1- 1.5 tsp daily at bedtime for a month. All your boils will reduce. You can continue it if you find it beneficial.

I am diabetic can I use soya crunches in my daily life. If use after workout its or bad.
Mr. lybrate-user, If your day's caloric intake is within the requirement of total calories based on weight, height and extent of workout, then there is no problem at all. As soy crunches give a good variety of proteins and probably least carbs. But it is equally important to keep blood glucose level in strict control with fasting closer to 100 mg, PP 150 to 160 mg & HbA1c%<6.8. Thanks.

My husband is 44 years of age suffering from high blood sugar.I checked today it was 173 before fast and 300 two hours after breakfast.The main concern is frequent urination at times 4-5 times at night due which he is not getting proper sleep for months now.6 months back it was worst as the blood sugar before fast was 240 and after breakfast 360 after which the diabetologist prescribed him Glycomet-GP 1, one tablet daily before breakfast.I can say that there is been an improvement but still he feels dizziness especially after 2 hrs of eating,hence he takes precautions to eat every 2 hours. Please suggest as we have already made many changes in the diet like replaced rice with wheat and decreased sugar and certainly eat healthy food and snacks every 2 hours.Junk foods like samosas and burgers have completely stopped.Still he does not feels 100% healthy. Please help.

Hi, seems your husband needs more of diet changes. Its good that you replaced rice with wheat but wheat is also not good for diabetes. You will have to switch to muultigrain flour. Like mix wheat bran,sometimes barley,sometimes raagi flour or soya flour.It should be rotational. Everyday different mix of flour. If he is overweight then he has to loose wt.Add more of veges ,salads and fruits.Dinner should bebefote7.30pm.Drink less of tea and coffee.Include green tea instead. Have 10leaves of kadipatta ,1 teaspoon of methidana soaked over night in the morning empty stomach.More specific medicines can be had after detailed history.

Agar diabetes ho to for use kaise  hatane ke like kya Karna chahiye  or kya nahi Karna chahiye
Agar confirmed diabetes hai, to jo dava jaruri hai wo leni padati hai. Bina modern medicine (oral or insulin injection) diabetes control may nahi ayega. Usake saath regular exercise aur restricted diet lena bhi jaruri hai.

diabetes mellitus usually does not cause any symptoms, hence many are not able to recognise that they are suffering with it. It may cause excessive urination, excessive hunger, excessive thirst, unexplained tiredness and weight loss. At home one can check blood sugar level with a glucometer, if fasting is >126 mg and after food > 200 mg, then diabetes is confirmed. Diabetes can not be cured, it can only be controlled with drugs, diet and exercise.

Mr. Lybrate-user, first thing is sugar levels should be strictly controlled, fasting should be closer to 100 mg and pp between 150 to 160 mg/100 ml and hba1c%<7. Without this the foot injury will not heal early. Secondly if he not on insulin then should be shifted on to that, plus daily glucose monitoring should be done at home. Injury should be shown to a competent doctor, cleaned with all debris being removed and dressed properly. Proper foot wear should be used. At home or out side he should always use foot wear. No bare foot walking. Please follow these steps that should help.

Mr. Lybrate-user, frozen shoulder is a common complication seen in a diabetes patient. One of the primary need is to have strict blood glucose control, secondly following instructions regarding exercise and getting physiotherapy done. There is no other option. Thanks.

Reactive Hypoglycemia
In some people there will be less glucose in the blood due to hormonal imbalance and eventually if it is not treated or if no precautions are taken, then it may lead to pre diabetic or diabetic case - this condition is called reactive hypoglycemia.

Keep glucose tabs and one two if level goes lower hypoglycemia can be dangerous particularly if level drops below 50 mg or so. Carry some candy or glucose tabs with you always.
