M.D.( Pediatrics), DCH
Pediatrician,
See the standard ref. For normal values for that lab, and look if they are low or not for your daughter. But once started you have to give lifelong. If still confused, visit paediatric endocrinologist. It is worth, you are dealing with a illness for rest of life.

There is no magic medicine for Diabetes. Though some herbs etc claim to control this, there is no data to prove these claims. Today in the name of Organic/Natural/Ayurveda etc. People are selling all sorts of stuff. With no research/tests/ certification. While such juices may have general health benefits. Its better to continue you proper medicine side by side.

Mr. Lybrate-user, diabetes mellitus if not controlled properly affects small and large blood vessels. Erectile dysfunction (ed), is a complication due to microvascular affection. It is one of the most common condition reported in dm. If it has developed, it may be very difficult to reverse it. A strict blood sugar control is a must, plus some other medications may have to be used. So first step is try achieve fasting sugar nearer 100 mg and pp around 150 to 160 mg and hba1c <7%.

Mr. lybrate-user, Looking at details it is clear that your diabetes is uncontrolled. There is no mention of HbA1c%. Ideally well controlled diabetes should have fasting closer to 100 mg, PP 150 to 160 mg, HbA1c%<6.8. So it is clear that present treatment is inadequate, needs to be upgraded. Plus looking at your weight and height, you are overweight with a BMI of 28.62 kgs/M2 (normal <23 kgs). Your ideal body weight should be about 57 kgs. Therefore, weight reduction will definitely help in better blood glucose control. As regards back ache, weight reduction and some specific exercises will help in overcoming that. Thanks.

First thing you should do is to get rid off anxiety and stress as those are main offenders in many. You can try any of the following methods. You can do squeeze and stop technique. You can stimulate your partner to maximum before getting yourself stimulated. You can deviate your thought to something nonsexual when you about to near ejaculation. You can put on a condom or condom with anesthetic which will decrease the excessive stimulation on penis and there by prevent premature ejaculation. Hope this may help you. Let me know if you have any further query.

Loose your extra weight this will not only lower your blood but also helps lowering your blood pressure, cholesterol too. Split your meals into 6 times per day and eating fair and consistent amount. No long gapes and skipping of meals. Never miss out breakfast. No overeating. Timely and balanced diet is as important as regular medicine intake to control diabetes. Complex carbohydrates and fibre should be included in diet. Do regular exercise atleast 15 minutes.

Doctor, am suffering from thyroid for the past six years. Now am taking tablet thyronorm 75 mcg for the past more than one year and I test thyroid every six months. This Sunday I tested my thyroid at Lister Lab and the results are as below: T3-2.15,T4-0.91,TSH-7.24. TSH obviously has gone up. Kindly advice if I need to change my medication. Thanks and regards Meenu Krishna.

CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology, MBBS
Endocrinologist,
To keep hypothyroidism in check, TSH should be maintained between 3 to 4 mU/L. Then all the symptoms are also in control. Since TSH level is 7.24 mU/L, there is a need to increase the dosage of thyroxine to at least 87.5 mcg, then check TSH after 6 weeks, to see if desired levels are achieved, if not then dose may have to be increased to 100 mcg. Thanks.
