with tsh level of 0.26 milli units/ml, you can definitely plan for pregnancy, because recommended tsh levels during 1st trimester is 0.1 to 2 milli units, 2nd trimester 0.3 to3 milli units and 3rd trimester is 0.3 to 3.5 milli units/ml. Maintaining tsh levels in this range ensures proper conception, development of fetus and successful outcome of pregnancy. If you have questions please do come back. Best of luck.

I m 33 years old suffering from diabetes. please provide me. Proper diet to avoid diabetes.
Hye, 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 - The sugar levels will fluctuate depending on what you ate or did not eat, stress levels and activity levels. You have to try and manage a balanced carb intake. Have small frequent meals. Do not fast for long hours. You have to eat 3 main and 3 mid meals. Your diet must include whole grains, seasonal fruits, vegetables, small amounts of nuts and dairy and pulses or dals or lean meats like chicken or fish and egg. Starchy vegetables need to be planned into the diet. 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. Avoid exercise if sugar levels are above 250mg/dl. Do not attempt to try out too many remedies as you could go into hypoglycaemia. Sleep well.            It's all a matter of discipline.

CONTROLLING BLOOD SUGAR 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 should be under doctor's supervision. 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), & HbA1C (inform) 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 & lifestyle.

You might be having rebound hyperglycaemia in your fasting sample, because with 25 units of actrapid your post meal level is 145 only meaning insulin is effectively controlling it. Possibly after the evening dose of insulin and a longer interval between dinner and lunch, by the early hours of morning your blood sugar might be going below normal without your knowledge while you are asleep. At this the internal mechanisms of body release anti insulin hormones and the morning blood sugar in fasting samples is raised. The doctors even somtimes get misguided by this and further increase the evening dose of insulin insead of reducing it. In your case the evening dose may be reduced by 2 units and afte about 1 week the fasting sample be rechecked. It should show normal or near normal level.

A baby 1 year old is most likely to have type 1 diabetes. If you are concerned about this, talk to the pediatrician. However, in case you are worried only about whether your baby will develop diabetes, here's the answer: yes, your baby has an inherited risk of type 2 diabetes, as both you & your father are diabetics. Bring up your baby in a healthy manner, feeding him/her with fresh fruit, vegetables, fish, etc. Inculcate healthy eating habits now itself. Encourage him/her to be physically active. Begin any form of sport training at the right age & see to it that he/she doesn't become overweight/obese. Keep them away from alcohol, tobacco & habit forming drugs. Thus, the risk can be reduced.
