My fasting sugar is 110 Am I diabetic. If I am not diabetic then why is it not normal. Mera mu bahut sukhta hai.

My fasting sugar is 110
Am I diabetic.
If I am not diabetic then why is it not normal.
Mera mu bahut sukhta hai.
Normal fasting blood sugar level is 75-115mg/dl and post prandial (2 hour after breakfast/ meal) is <140 mg/dl. Yours is within normal limit. However do a post prandial blood sugar (2 hours after breakfast) test and consult me for further advice.

Diabetesand triglycerideslevel control is governed by following the right diabetic diet. What to eat and what not to eat is important for diabetes control and diabetes cure or diabetes reversal. Few tips. - one teaspoon of methi seeds soaked overnight in 100 ml of water is very effective in controlling diabetes. - drink tomato juice with salt and pepper every morning on an empty stomach. - intake of 6 almonds (soaked overnight) is also helpful in keeping a check on diabetes. Natural remedies for diabetics. Tender guava leaf juice aloe vera green tea cinnamon black jamun seed extract methi seed powder drumstick leaf powder flaxseed powder amla neem flower tea multi grains wheat germ and bran lemon grass wheat grass quinoa are some of the foods which definitely control diabetes and triglycerides level. Take personalised dietary expert advice. Thank you.

My uncle of age 57 years, height is 5'8" and weight is 156 kg, having diabetes from last 7 years on regular medicine. But now he is feeling blurring in vision, did not feel any warm and cold in his foot. In night frequent urination also. How we can manage this problem, or we should go to the clinic regarding this.

Mr. Lybrate-user, your uncle has very morbid obesity with 52.34 kg/m2 bmi. This one of the major reasons for diabetes being not in control. Secondly if he has developed any problem with vision, a retinal check up has to be done immediately, because severe hyperglycemia can lead to damage to retina. Loss of sensation in feet is also a problem due to diabetic neuropathy. If he can afford it is better if bariatric surgery is done, which will help in reducing weight, will also help in controlling diabetes. Things are serious do not waste time, get the eyes checked urgently.

There is no specific diet for thyroid. To be precise you can avoid broccoli if you are hypothyroid. Take good amount of calcium and iodine.

Hi Diabetes control is not just cutting sugar and sweets its reducing carbohydrates and balancing the diet with extra proteins and lots of fibre. Make sure the blood sugars are within normal range. FBS: 80-120 PPBS: 140-180 Prefer citrus foods and papaya for him as the vitamin C and Vitamin A in it will help in faster healing but in small quantities. Daily dressing is important. If there is any infection, culture of the wound has to be done and treated accordingly.

My sugar level is getting more than normal. What I have to stop eating?

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
Pediatrician,
My sugar level is getting more than normal. What I have to stop eating?
You stop simple sugars like sugar, sweets ans candies. If you tell your fbs, 2hr ppbs and hba1c, I can guide you better, ask personally. Diabetes affects all organs in the body? eyes, kidneys, nerves, reproductive system all are affected, in fact, from toe to hair. For diabetic control, patient and doctor should be n constant touch for regular follow up and advice. It is not as easy task to control blood sugar in the desired normal range. Whatever we eat is metabolised to sugar in the body to provide energy for our daily activities. For the absolute control, one has to monitor his / her blood sugar at regular intervals (self-monitoring of blood glucose? smbg). Though difficult, this can be done by a glucometer and keep a record. Get an idea of fasting sugar (fbs) and 2 hours after food (ppbs) and check before dinner and after every major food. The basic idea is to reduce the food intake to 1/3 of what you take now. The dictum of sugar control is diet, exercise, diet + medicine and at later stage medicine+ insulin will be needed. There are different diet plans of varying calories for each person depending on his activity & life style. For sugar control there is the need for regular advice and follow up. Just one time consultation or advice is not enough to guide a diabetic in scientifically & medically correct manner. For giving you regular follow up you ask me privately with all details like your daily eating pattern and medicines you take. I assure you a proper guidance.

Please tell me what is the treatment for hypothyroid.

MD - Internal Medicine, MBBS
Endocrinologist,
Please tell me what is the treatment for hypothyroid.
in hypothyroid thyroxine medicines used according to level of tsh. 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 alcohl if you take.

Doctor low amh ka matlab kya hai? Eggs ki quality ka kharab hona ya eggs ki quantity kam hona.

DHMS (Diploma in Homeopathic Medicine and Surgery)
Homeopath, Ludhiana
It means that the quantity of your eggs is low. Quality is more determined by age. The lower your AMH and the higher your FSH, the worse it is supposed to be in terms of fertiliity. FSH fluctuates alot so AMH is thought to be more predictable.

Nerve damage? Who's qualified to ...
Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. When diabetes continues for a number of years, even when it is fairly well controlled peripheral neuropathy occurs. This happen due to hyperglycemia, excess glucose molecules affect the functioning of peripheral nerves. It may begin first as sensory effect with altered sensations like numbness, tingling, burning and even pain. Later even motor functions may get affected. Begins usually with toes and feet, legs. May spread to upper limbs also. Strict blood glucose control is helpful. There are some drugs used like vtmin B12, folic acid, lipoleic acid, and other vitamins. Plus drugs like gabapentine and pragabalin are also used for getting pain relief. A diabetologist will definitely be able to help. Thanks.
