My fasting blood sugar is 89. Is it normal?

DNB (General Medicine), MBBS
Cardiologist,
My fasting blood sugar is 89. Is it normal?
Fasting blood sugar level higher than 126mg/dl is criteria to diagnose diabetes. Singular level higher than 126 doesn't qualify anyone as diabetic. Need to have second check of fasting blood sugar or corroborative high levels of random or glycosylated hemoglobin. You are safe at 89:-)

Probably not. However, in rare cases, multiple d&c can cause scarring at the top of the cervix or inside the uterus. It is indeed likely that following an abortion the main risk to fertility is the development of pelvic inflammatory disease (pid), which is an inflammation uterus, fallopian tubes and ovaries. Any use of instruments on the cervix, such as during a d&c, can lead to a greater spread of these organisms and, therefore, the risk of pid.

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.i.e. t3,t4,tsh, also do vit.D. and vit. B., s.calcium. you can take tab. dolo sos for pain.

I have hypothyroidism. Should I take daily away multivitamin supplements daily? will it be helpful?
treatment for hypothyroidism is taking adquate dose of thyroxine tablets. Multivitamins are really not required unless there is a specific dietary deficiency. Taking extra vitamins does not really benefit.

Hi Your HbA1C is good but if there is any recurrent episodes of low blood sugars and tiredness, I would recommend you to reduce the medicine dose and mainatin a HbA1C of 6.5% - 7.0%. Your change of medicine and dose can be decided after a chat regarding your diet and exercise routine, daily monitoring of blood sugars as prescriptions cannot be given here.

Dear Lybrate User, *Firstly you take your food with 2 to 3 hr intervals, devided into 3 main meals and 3 small meals. Main meals should consist of 1/4 portion of protein and 1/4 portion of carbohydrates and 2 portion of vegetables more or less at the same time of the day to make your biological clock perfect. Avoid high calorie food such as fried things, mango, banana, sapota, juices, sweets. Secondly do regular exercise, yoga or walk. Thirdly always take your medicine in time as advised by your doctor. Keep your self hydrated and take enough sleep. *Control it by some changes in diet and life style. She should take a morning walk daily. Avoid highly refined carbohydrate like white bread and pasta etc and focus on high fiber complex carbohydrate also known as slow release carbohydrate like brown rice, sweet potato, yam, whole wheat bread, oats peas, green leafy vegetable, fat free low sugar yogurt etc

Mr Chitrakant, Alcohol for a diabetes patient is not good in any quantity. Some people may say it is good in moderate quantity, is just a myth. Precautions include : 1) Taking a restricted diet, giving exact calories based on ideal body weight, blood sugar levels and extent of daily physical activity. 2) avoid sweets, direct sugar and jaggery, deep fried foods, junk foods and pastries. 3) Consume more of green leafy vegetables, salads and permitted fruits (100 g a day). 3) Exercise regularly for at least 1 h our a day, brisk walking is good. Other exercises like jogging and running or surya namaskar , asanas etc. 4) Take medications regularly without missing the dose 5) Work on maintaining a normal weight, as over weight is dangerous in diabetes. 6) Refrain from alcohol and smoking.

She is suffering from low grade urinary infection with acute exacerbation mostly aided due to her diabetic state. You haven't mentioned her blood sugar levels. It may be the problem area. Any such infection. If not controlled efficiently will cause it to spread upwards along the ureters and may reach kidneys causing a critical condition called payelonephritis. If bactrim ds is not giving relief you must urgently consult your physician. He might change the drug according to the culture report done recently. With good control of blood sugar she will recover as I hope.
