its not a question of what he feels about his sugar . get his hba1c levels done .this will tell regarding his blood sugar levels over a span of 3 months. if this level falls in range of good control then you can think of gradually reducing the dose with regular blood tests to check his response

Will a person with Type 2 diabetes under control end up with the need for insulin?

Will a person with Type 2 diabetes under control end up with the need for insulin?
Hello, diabetes mellitus (t2) occurs either due to deficiency of insulin or resistance to its action or both. Further in a person who is likely to develop diabetes beta cell (cells producing insulin) function starts going down even before actual disease develops. When diabetes is detected, beta cell function invariably comes to 50% of normal. If blood glucose in not well controlled then insulin producing cells are damaged more severely due to glucotoxicity (excess blood glucose). In any case there is progressive reduction in number of beta cells in a diabetic person hence invariably after many years of having diabetes oral drugs become ineffective, hence, patient has to be shifted on to insulin. Very few few patients may remain on only oral drugs for life time. Thanks.

Deciding to treat diabetes based on glucometer readings alone is not right. You should do a proper FBS, 2 hour PPBS and HbA1c in a lab and only then, such a decision should be taken.

Mr. lybrate-user, If diabetes is diagnosed, the treatment with appropriate drugs has to be started immediately. Diabetes is a condition which can only be controlled very well, there is no cure. Treatment has to be for lifetime. There is no other option. If you want me to guide specifically about which treatment to take and what other precautions to be taken, please come in a private conversation with following details: Fasting, Pp blood glucose levels, HbA1c%, present drugs being taken if any, dietary pattern and extent of daily exercise. Based on those details I will be able to give specific guidelines. Thanks.

dear sir thyroxine takes in hypothyroidism for life time. but dose may be adjust by tests every 3 to 6 months. 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,

Hi Yes it is safe. But check your kidney and liver function frequently as the dose needs to be adjusted if there is any derangement in the kidney and liver function test.

I am diabetic. I use to take 10iu daily before break fast. My fasting sugar level is some what normal. But pp level is beyond my control even after taking mixtard insulin. How can I control that.

MD - Pulmonary Medicine, MBBS

Hello, taking right dose of insulin is the best way to control fasting and pp sugar. Even if after taking insulin, pp sugar goes high, you can try tab. Vobit 0.2mg one after food twice daily to control pp sugar. Check fasting sugar after seven days to find control.

Drugs like glimepiride, gliclazide, glinides etc are given before food about 30 to 40 minute earlier. Because they stimulate insulin secretion. So when food reached the gut, adequate insulin should be available. Metformin is usually given after food as in some taking it before food may cause gastrointestinal symptoms. But in combination mostly it is given before food. Voglibose and acarbose are given with food as they inhibit enzymes which convert disaccharides to glucose and delay the absorption. This dosing time is not related anything else. Usually after food it takes about 2 to 3 hours for glucose levels to come down. After about 8 to 10 hours glucose level is lowest.

Dear patient this is actually a nutritional suppplement and vitamin used to treat or prevent the medical conditions that can occur if you are deficient in these vital nutrients.  Thus, the effects of long-term use have not been studied, however, they are generally considered safe, as long as you are not taking extremely high doses.  Regards.

2 years back it was detected that I do have hypothyroidism. I continued ayurvedice treatment for almost 2 years however I have discontinued the treatment as the medicine was making me very lethargic and was also affecting my decision making skills. Is there a way I can control thyroid without medicine ?

Hello if one has hypothyroidism only treatment is taking thyroid hormone tables. There's no ayurvedic treatment. If you want to live normal then no option but to take tab thyronorm dosage will depend on your tsh levels.

Avoid high protein diet. Walk or jogg for 30-40 mins everyday. Or you can go to gym. Gout is a metabolic disorder where purin deposited in the joints and inflammation occur. Soo the pain. You need proper homeopathic treatment for cure. Zyloric can lower your uric acid level bt the disorder remains same. Soo only by proper homeopathic treatment you will surely b cure of this disease. You can contact me through lybrate.
