It is correct to count blood sugar post breakfast instead of meal. Will the count differ variably?

Mr. Lybrate-user, usually fasting sugar level is done after at least 8 hours after food (dinner), then again for convenience sake after food (after breakfast) is checked. If post lunch blood glucose is checked it may vary depending upon the size of meal. If your lunch is bigger in quantity than breakfast then blood glucose level will be more. The idea of taking after breakfast is to get an idea of post food level to decide the treatment.

Feeling weak is a symptom of thyroid as the metabolism is very disturbed. Besides the medicine she is taking, its important that she takes a healthy diet and try to lose weight if she is over weight. Walk should be a part of daily routine and lifestyle change should be targeted on.

What are the symptoms of diabetes melitus & High blood pressure? Please help me. Give suggestion.

What are the symptoms of diabetes melitus & High blood pressure? Please help me. Give suggestion.
Diabetes mellitus most often produces very few recognisable symptoms, hence most people fail to identify that they have diabetes. But when fully grown it may produce following symptoms: excess urination, especially getting up at night to pass urine 2 or 3 times, which disturbs sleep, excess thirst, excess hunger, unexplained weight loss and tiredness. Blood sugar level in such situations shows hyperglycemia. High bp also very rarely causes any recognisable symptoms. Hence, mostly it is found out only on checking at clinic. Occasionally one may feel dizziness. Earlier there was feeling that high bp causes headache and nose bleeds. But this can happen in hypertensive crisis, since these conditions are familial, it better for a person to get blood sugar and bp check up done regularly, particularly after 30 to 40 years. Both these conditions can be prevented by regular exercise, weight maintenance, proper diet. In case of bp salt restriction is very essential. But if one has already developed both these conditions then appropriate drug treatment is a must, in addition to adapting a modified lifestyle.

Hi there is no way one can keep a cataract small or not allow it to grow. Over next few weeks to months it will develop and then it has to be operated. Restricted diet helps in controlling blood sugar. When blood sugar is control fasting should be closer to 100 mg and pp 150 to 160 mg and hba1c%, 7 if this is achieved, then that is good. Basically avoid sweets, deep fried food, junk foods, pastries and sweetened aerated drinks. Consume more of green leafy vegetables, salads, permitted fruits (100 g a day). Use whole grain products and whole grain flour for roti and chapati. Diet should provide exact calories based on your weight, extent of daily exercise and blood sugar levels. With regards.

Mr. lybrate-user Babu, Thanks for the query. Looking at your weight and height, it is clear that with a BMI of 34.6 kgs/M2, you have almost grade 2 obesity. Your ideal weight should e 70 kgs. There is no mention about the current TSH level to know if hypothyroidism is in control or not. When on treatment with adequate dose of thyroxine TSH should be maintained < 3 mU/L. So please check the same and if it is high then dose may have to be increased. If TSH is high then all the symptoms of hypothyroidism reappear including weight gain. As regards Vit D3, it is low, you will need supplements of that. Thanks.

Brazil nuts are high in calories due to the amount of fat that they contain so it is consumed in small amounts only. It has.omega-3 fats, unsaturated fats, vitamin E and fiber so its heart-healthy .
