My mother (58+ yrs) is under treatment for Hypothyroidism (Eltroxin 50 mcg), Hypertension (Olmezest 20 mg) & Osteoarthritis (stage-2) of knee joints. Since past couple of months, she faced the problem of seeing every distant object in black color as well as in blurry image. Recently she visited an eye doctor, who suggested this is because of the eye gel getting dried up. She had cataract also, but that's mostly at initial phase. 1) What could have caused this eye gel to be dried ? Is it something serious & related to other medical problems ? 2) They have prescribed 2 eye drops - Aqualube & Nepaflam daily 3-4 times for 3-months. Is it safe to to use Nepaflam for such a long period ?

Dryness is caused by hypothyroidism itself. There is a change in composition of mucous that is secreted by special glands in the conjunctiva tissue of the eye. She has to use lubricating eye drops on a daily basis at a frequency that depends upon the ambient temperature, humidity and wind factor. Generally speaking use drops for comfort and repeat when discomfort starts. Lubricating drops are safe and preservative free formulations are also available. Nepaflam has to be stopped after 3 weeks.

Mr. Lybrate-user, in my opinion honey is not recommended in a diabetes patient, as it is another form of sucrose. It contains 50% fructose + 50% glucose. Plus some vitamins and antioxidants. Suppose if some one still wants to use it, then there has to be a very strict blood sugar control with fasting around 100 mg, pp 150 to 160 mg, hba1c% <6.8. Thanks for the question.

Please try to fight this problem without medicines. Pre.diabetics should not take medicines. Use meds only as a last resort. You must change you food habits and increase your exercise. This will bring down your sugar levels naturally. Pre.diabetes is a warning sign nature has given to you. It will be best for you if you make a resolve to be healthy and fit for life. Follow nature and stay away from medicines and doctors.
