If you feel hypoglycemia than to have 4 teaspoon sugar immediately with water. Reduced your medicine dose. Increase your small frequent meal in every 2 hour. When you go to bed than to have 1glass tonnes milk with 2 to 4 marie or salty biscuits this will help or prevent coma at night.

Hello lybrate user Symptoms of diabetes include, increased frequency of urination, increased thirst, incresed appetite, weight loss,tingling sensation of legs, generalized weakness etc. Not all symptoms may be there. If in doubt better get your fasting blood sugars and post lunch blood sugars tested. Take care.

Diabetic control is very difficult and you need to take strict measures and add or change the drugs. Diabetes, often referred to by doctors as diabetes mellitus, describes a group of metabolic diseases in which the person has high blood glucose (blood sugar), either because insulin production is inadequate, or because the body's cells do not respond properly to insulin, or both. It is a difficult 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 me) 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 diabetes, hypertension (high BP) and many long-term illness 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 with all details like your daily eating pattern and medicines you take. I assure you a proper guidance. If you keep in touch personally.

Hai sir. My wife is suffering from hyperthyroidism she is 38 kgs. How she can gain the weight.

PDDM, MHA, MBBS
General Physician, Nashik
Follow the following tips:- · Pay attention to your health and food intake. · To increase your appetite, have a glass of lime water or 1 cardamom (elaichi) before your meal. · Have minimum 4 meals in a day. · Drink 1 glass of milk twice a day. · Try to enjoy your meals and gradually increase the quantity you eat every time. · A balance diet should have all essential nutrients in it. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. It should include combination of Both Carbohydrates and Proteins for e.g. Oats with Milk or Poha/ Upma with a glass of milk. If you do not like milk have 1-2 egg whites in the morning along with your breakfast. · You need to focus on your protein intake: Increase your protein intake e.g. Milk, dairy products- cheese, paneer, lentils (dals), nuts (soya, peanuts, dry fruits ), pulses e.g. Rajma, chole, kidney beans etc. Sprouts. If you are a non-vegetarian, then you can have proteins by also eating eggs, chicken, fish. Make sure you are including at least 2 serving of any of these in your daily meal. · Lunch and dinner again should be a combination of Proteins, Carbohydrates and Fats which could have dal, roti, sabji/chicken, salad. · Please do have minimum 4 almonds or a small bowl of peanuts every day. · Please ensure that you drink at least 3 litres of water every day.

Do not worry. That value is also normal. If you have any specific problems like joint pains then can repeat the test. Or else values <6.8 are not a problem.

Hello, If a person develops hypothyroidism then weight gain is very common, particularly if it is uncontrolled. If efforts to reduce weight should succeed then TSH levels should be maintained between 3 to 4 mU/L. Plus there has to be a strict diet control, with food intake giving calories based on ideal body weight (Height in Cms - 100 = IBW). IBW X20 = calories per day. Plus daily exercise of at least 1 hour is needed. The tablet being taken to reduce weight is unlikely to help. High uric acid is seen in many people, but only a few there is a problem related to joint pains. Thanks.

Mr Vinay, By consuming sweets or sugar a person does not get diabetes. However, if you have a family history of diabetes and have excess weight, central obesity (waist more than 90 cms), having an inactive lifestyle, also habituated to alcohol or smoking, then there is a possibility of getting diabetes type 2. So if you any of the above things it is better to be cautious. To keep free from T2DM, adapt a healthy lifestyle.
