I am a 54 years old male working as a clerk with bsnl. My parents are diabetic and takes insulin two times a day. I am regularly walking for an hour not taking any sweets and taking zoryil m1 11/2 tab morning and 1 tab at night. But still my fasting sugar is 242 today how can I control my sugar level I am not having bp or cholestrol. I am 6.1" tall and my weight 90kg.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
It is not as easy 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) 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. For sugar 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 privately with all details like your daily eating pattern and medicines you take. I assure you a proper guidance. If you keep in touch.

if blood sugar level shows confirmed diabetes then treatment with drugs is absolutely necessary. Plus dietary restriction and regular exercise for more than 1 hour is a must. Another important aspect is to avoid becoming over weight, have a waist circumference of no more than 90 cms, bmi <23kg/m2. Your bmi is 29.29 is closer to grade 1 obesity, can be a major contributor for becoming diabetic. Your ideal body weight should be 54 kgs. Diabetes is occurring due to deficiency of insulin an important hormone necessary for carbohydrate, fat and protein metabolism. Lack of it or resistance to its action is the main reason for t2 dm. So this needs to be made available daily hence treatment has to go on for life time.

MrSatish Kumar, To give any suggestions I need to know her weight, (kgs), height, waist circumference, fasting and PP sugar levels (current), HbA1c%, dietary pattern and extent of exercise done daily. Based on these details I will be able to guide. It is better if you come in a private conversation where I will be able to give specific guidelines. In the mean time she should avoid sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods and pastries. Consume more of green leafy vegetables and salads, use whole grain flour for making roti and chapati, (no maida). Exercise daily for at least 1 hour that will help in reducing insulin resistance and improve it's action, plus increase glucose utilisation.

Diabetes is a condition where the body cannot breakdown excess sugar in the body resulting in high blood sugar levels which is harmful to a lot of organs. Medicine depends upon your presenting symptoms/age/co-morbidities/etc. A stress free life with a healthy diet and daily exercise schedule will help you prevent it for as long as possible.

lybrate-user, eight reduction and tiredness can occur in diabetes if blood glucose is not under control. You have not mentioned her current fasting, PP glucose levels and HbA1c%, so there is no way to know how good the control is. Weight loss also does occur in hyperthyroidism along with other symptoms like tiredness, irritability, difficulty in sleeping, increased heart rate & palpitations, loss of appetite or increase in appetite, light menstrual periods, mental disturbance, muscle weakness, nervousness, shortness of breath etc. So pleas come back with present blood glucose levels & HbA1c%, that will help in giving suggestions. Thanks.

If my sugar level is 230 before fasting then what medicine to take it to control.

If my sugar level is 230 before fasting then what medicine to take it to control.
Sugar control is not just based on the numerical value of sugar level that the patient has- it sugar treatment was that easy then instead of doctors a mobile app would have told you the medicine!!! Your Sugar level of 250mg/dl is very high and as such needs holistic approach of diet-medicines-exercise for its control.

Mr. Lybrate-user, diabetes mellitus is a disease due to either insulin deficiency or resistance to its actio or both, particularly if it is t2 dm. In t1 dm there is no insulin at all. Treatment of diabetes depends on the type of the disease. Another important thing to be remembered is that treatment will continue for life time. There is no cure for the disease. I could not follow your query on" elctronic media" to be attached to the body, there is nothing of that sort at least for now. She will need proper treatment with appropriate drugs, diet control and regular exercise and weight control.

Yes if you have type 2 diabetes and your blood sugar levels are racing up and down like a roller coaster, it's time to get off the ride. Big swings in your blood sugar can make you feel lousy. But even if you aren't aware of them, they can still increase your risk for a number of serious health problems. By making simple but specific adjustments to your lifestyle and diet, you can gain better blood-sugar control. Your body uses the sugar, also known as glucose, in the foods you eat for energy. Think of it as a fuel that keeps your body moving throughout the day. Blood sugar highs and lows

you should be avoid bad habits . Avoid stress. Some Relax during work. Drink more water, high-carbohydrate foods such as potatoes, rice, pasta and bread. You can take Nutrient-rich foods that improve your health may also benefit your thyroid gland, antioxidant-rich fruits and vegetables more plenty of water: Blueberries, tomatoes, bell peppers, and other foods rich in antioxidants can improve overall health and benefit the thyroid gland. Eating foods high in B vitamins, like whole grains, may also help. Selenium: Tiny amounts of selenium are needed for enzymes that make thyroid hormones to work properly. Eating selenium-rich foods, such as sunflower seeds or Brazil nuts, can be beneficial. Tyrosine: This amino acid is used by the thyroid gland to produce T3 and T4. Taking a supplement may help, avoid oily foods,junk foods, go for walk. Tests every 3 to 6 months. for uric acid you can take tab. zyloric 100 mg once a day.

She is suffering from thyroid last 3 year. It's present Thyroid level is 8.23. Pls suggest daily life style.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Mr. Lybrate-user, a person with hypothyroidism, first and foremost should control the tsh levels to near normal. 8.23 milli units/ml, is showing that she is not in control. When on treatment tsh should be around 3 to 4 milli units / ml. Secondly patient should exercise regularly to avoid weight gain or reduce excess weight. Your wife has a bmi of 25.1 kg/m2 which means over weight. Her ideal body weight should be 52 kgs. So she has to work on reducing the weight. Patient with hypothyroidism should avoid soy beans. Soy containing products, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, radish, peanuts, mustard and coffee. Should consume more of green leafy vegetables, salads and fruits. Should use whole grain flour for making roti or chapati. Also avoid high fat milk products like cheese.

Mr Ujwal, According to my knowledge, diabetes mellitus can only be controlled by modern medicines either oral or Insulin injections. Because it occurs due to deficiency of Insulin hormone. Oral drugs stimulate Beta cell of Iselets of Langerhans in pancreas and Insulin injections provide ready hormone. No other medications do this.
