Hello Sir, Your results show that you are having overt hypothyroidism. You need to go on Thyroid hormone replacement medication. You have to take this tablet once a day on an empty stomach in the morning. You need to get your Thyroid function tests repeated once every 6-8 weeks. . You can consult me privately through Lybrate if you wish. Then I can thoroughly assess you and prescribe the medication. Alternatively see a good endocrinologist. I hope this answer has helped you Thank you.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. The very fact that you have been advised multiple doses of short acting insulin plus a long acting one, means you have fairly high and uncontrolled blood glucose. In such situation Insulin is the only remedy. Lantus is a long acting insulin. It remains in the blood for over 18 to 20 hours and helps maintain a lower level of glucose during 24 hour period. Short acting insulin is given to control after food rise in blood glucose. There are many oral antidiabetic drugs, which are useful in controlling blood glucose but in your case those would not work as your pancreas is unable to produce any insulin. Hence you need supplement on daily basis. Thanks.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. It is very difficult rather impossible to predict life expectancy of any body, including a totally healthy person. It is generally said with diagnosis of diabetes about 10 years of life are reduced. But if one takes excellent care and maintains near normal blood glucose levels then one might expect almost normal life expectancy. However, with diabetes is good control also some of the organs do get damaged, which is not noticeable. So no one can predict. Thanks.

As per your height, your weight should be 60 kgs. You are 40 kgs above your ideal body weight. Diet & exercise have 90 % failure rate. Only thing that will work for you is bariatric (weight loss) surgery.

Hi, thanks for the query. For a diabetic it is best advised to have a diet planned as per the sugar levels, lifestyle and history. Though you can follow some guidelines - have small frequent meals. Do not fast for long hours. Avoid a very heavy meal at one time. Avoid fruit juices, aerated drinks or sugarcane juice, honey, jaggery or sugar. Avoid junk foods. Exercise and stay active. Do not attempt to try out too many remedies as you could go into hypoglycaemia. Sleep well. It's all a matter of discipline.

Mr. Thanks for the query. In uncontrolled diabetes when blood glucose goes up extremely high, then multiple doses of Insulin are required. Some times patients need up to 200 units of insulin. Different types of insulins also have to be used one for prolonged action and one to control after food rise of glucose. So what the doctors in the hospital are doing is quite right. Once glucose levels are brought under control, Insulin dose will be reduced. Thanks.

Hi doctor, can you pls tell me, if I am taking thyronorm 25 every day. What is the right way to take thyronorm 25? I mean empty stomach and with a full glass of water or can be taken with little water for better results? please tell me sir.

B.Sc. - Dietitics / Nutrition
Dietitian/Nutritionist, Mumbai
Hi , the amount of water will not have an impact on the end result' although as perhaps recommended by your doctor, best to have the thyroid medication first thing in the morning on an empty stomach. Work on your lifestyle--eat healthy meals, workout consistently and plug problematic behaviors. Doing this will ensure that your medication strength doesn't have to be increased. In fact, with the assistance and aid of your physician, you could even lower it if you manage to successfully increase your body's thyroid hormone function. Hope this helps. .

Hi my mom is having diabetes. She was on medicine. She was having Glynase -MF 1 and half tablet twice a day. But from last few days she is having a lot urine at night. She is having a loss of weight as well. If there is any cut or injury its taking a lot of time to recover and heal. We did the fasting and blood test. Test results:- Haemoglobin= 11.5 gms% = 78%(By Hellige Method) True Glucose (Fasting):- 260 mgm% We are not sure about the type of diabetes. She is herself a nurse. Help me with a suggestion what should we do? Should we do a C-peptide test first? Before taking any medication. Suggestions please.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Since she has been taking oral anti-diabetic drugs for controlling blood glucose, it has to T2 diabetes. In T1 only Insulin Injection has to be given. No other drug works. She now has an uncontrolled diabetes that is the reason for excess urination at night and weight loss, because more of glucose is being lost in the urine. She needs to achieve a strict blood glucose control with FBG < 100 mg, PP 170 to 180 mg & HbA1c% <7. That means there has to be a change in the current treatment. New drugs have to be added or Insulin may have to be started. There are other options also, but in this communication we are supposed to give general guidelines only. No prescriptions are allowed. If you are keen for improving her blood glucose levels and achieve better control, please come in a private conversation with following details: FBG, PP glucose levels, HbA1c%, dietary pattern extent of exercise or physical activity, lipid profile, BP readings. Based on those details I will be able to guide specifically and help improve the condition. There is no need for C- peptide testing. Thanks.

Diet and food has very little to do with TSH levels.. Better concentrate on proper treatment.. You may consider taking homoeopathic treatment side by side as it has very good chance to cure it and no need to take medicines life long... But please don't be misguided... it only happens if treatment taken for long time...

I'm 59yrs old having Uric Acid 8.6 Any medicine to be taken and things to be avoided or to be consumed in shape of vegetables nd fruits etc.

DNB
General Physician,
The diet advised very correctly. For medicines, if there r joint pains then only medicines required otherwise dietary measures will suffice. If joint pains r there then take Febutaz/Feburic 40mg at bed time 1 tab for 3 months and recheck uric acid level after that and decide to continue the medicine or not depending upon the results.

Diabetes - How it Impacts Your Eyes?

M.S
Ophthalmologist, Ahmedabad
Diabetes - How it Impacts Your Eyes?

If you are diabetic then it is important that you consult a ophthalmologist for regular check-ups. Diabetes is known to be one of main causes for blindness across all age groups. If you suffer from bouts of blurred vision then it is not likely due to a long term vision problem. It is temporary and usually occurs due to fluctuating blood sugar levels in the body.

How diabetes affects your eyes?
The lens of your eyes can swell if you are a diabetic, and this can impair your ability to see causing blurry vision. In order to rectify this problem, it is important for you to get your blood sugar levels under optimal levels. This entire procedure of reducing blood sugar levels may take three months or more.

Eye problems that are caused by diabetes
The major eye problems that can occur due to diabetes are

  1. Cataract: Cataract occurs when the lens of your eyes become foggy or cloudy. Although cataract mostly occurs to people who are middle aged or above sixty, you can get affected by this disorder at an earlier age if you are diabetic. Also, the deterioration or clouding of the lens progresses at a much faster rate than usual. Cataracts lead to an inability to focus as the retina is covered by cloudy layer.
  2. Glaucoma: This is another disorder that can occur due to diabetes. This is characterized by the buildup of pressure in the eye due to the fluids within it not draining properly. This intense pressure damages the nerves and blood vessels in the eyes, thus impairing your ability to see.
  3. Diabetic Retinopathy: Diabetic retinopathy is a disorder characterized by damage to the vessels in the retina that carry blood. It can occur if you have either of the type 2 or type 1 diabetes. If not treated in time it can lead to blindness.

If you have a history of diabetes or even borderline diabetic tendencies, it is highly advisable to constantly check your blood sugar levels and also get your eye checked at regular intervals, especially if you feel even the minutest vision problems.

Hello, My current uric acid level is high based on blood test. Can anybody advice me on what type of diet to be taken to prevent uric acid levels from rising up. Thanking you.

PDDM, MHA, MBBS

Hello, My current uric acid level is high based on blood test.
Can anybody advice me on what type of diet to be taken...
The first thing you should do is to eat foods that are high in fiber, This is because fiber rich foods absorb uric acid from the blood. Your kidneys then 'throw' out the excess uric acid. Try to eat Oatmeal, Spinach, cauliflowers and Isabgol in milk if possible.  Please use olive oil to cook your food. kindly avoid vegetable oils because they become unhealthy when heated twice. This leads to rancid fat in the body. These destroy vitamin E, that in turn controls uric acid levels. Olive oil also curbs uric acid by itself.  Vitamin C chewable tablets taken 500mg daily lower uric acid levels within 4 to 8 weeks.  Try to stop intake of sweets, cakes and pastries. Saturated fats are bad for you.  Many fruits have got potent anti-oxidant properties, like celery seeds, grapes and tomatoes, and these prevent harmful toxins from attacking your organs - releasing uric acid.
