For diabetes follow a diet low in carbohydrate, low in fat and high in fibre. Walking for 30 mins a day for at least 5 days in a week is recommended. Follow a stress free life. Medication will depend upon your blood sugar value.

lybrate-user, If hypothyroidism is in control (TSH between 3 to 4 mU/L), then efforts to control weight can be successful. Only way to reduce weight is exercise and take a restricted diet. Your caloric intake has to be based on ideal body weight (60 kgs X 25 calories = 1500 cals, since you want to reduce weight, then the intake has to be cut by another 500 cals per day. So daily food intake should give only 1000 calories. Plus at least 45 minutes of walking also is required. Without this there is no other way to reduce weight. Thanks.

Hello Ms. lybrate-user Can you just provide some details that what is your sugar level - random, fasting & PP. One thing I want to tell you that diabetes is only a lifestyle hazard, you can treat your diabetes by just following a well structured diet. Any medicines will never cure your diabetes. Infact we have plenty of examples who have cured their diabetes by just following a good diet plan and too in a very short period of time. So I would suggest you to treat your diabetic condition with diet only instead of medicines. Hope you got your answer. If you have any query then you can text me anytime. Best Of Luck.

If there is no burning or fever then less chances of uti. Drink more water. Sometimes it could be due to vitamin b complex suppliments.

Increase thirst, increased frequency of urination are some initial symptoms of diabetes but it can vary from being completely asymptomatic to non specific symptoms like weakness, loss of weight, tingling in feet, dry mouth, blurry vision, burning during urination. You need to follow a healthy lifestyle to prevent such metabolic diseases. Type 1 usually occurs at younger age due to insulin deficiency and treated with insulin injections. It can't be cured completely but you can keep it controlled by taking these precautions.

What is the use of paracetamol? What is the symptoms of diabetes? What tablet we have to use in headache.

What is the use of paracetamol? What is the symptoms of diabetes? What tablet we have to use in headache.
Mr. Lybrate-user, paracetamol is an antipyretic and analgesic, meaning it reduces fever and pain like headache, body ache etc. Diabetes usually does not produce any symptoms, that is why many people do not come to know about its presence. When fully developed may cause excessive urination, excessive hunger, excessive thirst, unexplained weight loss and tiredness. For controlling headache painkillers can be used.

Get your fasting and post prandial blood sugar levels done. If they are within the acceptable range, you dont need to worry about the disease. If they are high, consult a physician near you for complete evaluatuion of your symptoms.

Mr. Lybrate-user, hypothyroidism has to be treated for life time. You will have to continue these tablets for whole life. There is no option.
