Hi, your reports show that your blood sugar levels are gradually increasing and your hba1c is definitely high. Therefore, it confirms that you are diabetic. But right now you need not be on oral hypoglycaemics. Be on strict diabetic diet (avoid direct sugar) and start walking for 1 hour daily for one month and then check your fbs and ppbs along with urine sugar and revert back with the reports. If the values are within normal range, then you can control diabetes with strict diet and exercise for the time being.

Dear lybrate-user, I can understand your confusion. Dates are sweet and high calorie food. In diabetes everything can be eaten but in moderation, calories count per day has to be maintained. The best person to answer your question is a diet specialist. But generally moderation is the key regards.

Please get your hemoglobin checked, because it is possible you may have anaemia, which could be the reason for tiredness. If there is no anaemia detected, then please eat adequate diet with proteins like eggs and a lot green vegetables. You also must be aware that in hypothyroidism one should avoid soya containing products, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, mustard and coffee as these items affect treatment. Please inform the hb level.

Mr Vimmy,How do I know whether your symptoms are of hypothyroidism or not, because no symptoms are mentioned. To know if you have hypothyroidism get the thyroid assay done, results of that will help in deciding. Any good clinical /pathology lab does these tests.

You are having type 1 diabetes and are on the correct regimen of insulin. type 1 diabetics require to compulsorily take insulin thrice a day. although there are insulins avaliable which are effective for the entire day, just taking that one shot wont be enough in your case and you may land up with complications. People who are on one shot of insulin in a day are having a completely different type of diabetes, one in which tablets are also useful.

I am 61 without any family histroy of diabates. During recent blood test, my fasting sugar is 104 and pps is 184. Should I start taking medicine or this can be controlled by diet. Please advise

M B B S, M. D (Internal Medicine)
General Physician, Nellore
At this stage, you can do dieting and exercise regularly for 2 months and repeat then. If still elevated, then need medications along with diet & exercise. Even if controlled then, you should continue diet & exercise and undergo frequent sugar tests every 3 months to see if it is rising or remaining under control.
