Black tea is perfectly fine. Go ahead. Better consult a doctor regarding medicines. Monitor your sugar levels regularly if it goes down then its okay. Else you will have to take medicines. Currently you are beyond the diabetes borderline. If you eat proper diet and remain fit, you can bring it down.

You can star with metformin to begin with 500 mg twice a day then check sugar levels. Also avoid direct sugar and sweets. It is good if you can walk abreast half hour every day.

As you know, your diabetes is not under control and its not good for your health. Yes, its better to take insulin to control diabetes when your sugar levels are high with 2 or more oral medicines. And yes, insulin can be discontinued after diabetes is under control, but that should be supervised and decision taken by your treating doctor.

I want to know the symptoms and diagnosis for hyperthyroidism. What kind of food items should be eat.

DHMS (Diploma in Homeopathic Medicine and Surgery)
Homeopath, Ludhiana
Some of the common symptoms of hyperthyroidism are: •Sweating profusely •Intolerance to heat •Increased bowel movements •Slight tremor in the limbs •Rapid heart rate •Unexplained weight loss •Excessive fatigue •Concentration problem •Irregular menstrual cycle •It can lead to irregular heart rhythms and even heart failure in the elderly. •Untreated hyperthyroidism may result in condition called thyroid storm, where a person can suffer from high blood pressure, fever leading to a heart failure. •In Graves’ disease, there may be eye changes and skin changes in addition to the other symptoms.---------- The diagnosis can be made from the symptoms that the patient experiences and a confirmation can be made by diagnostic tests-------------- There’s no such thing as a hyperthyroidism diet, but what you eat matters. Hyperthyroidism—when your thyroid gland produces too much thyroid hormone—can’t be prevented or treated though diet alone. It’s often treated with prescription medication, so see your doctor immediately if you have hyperthyroidism symptoms. But by eating certain foods, you can limit some mild hyperthyroidism symptoms what foods should you eat? 1.From strawberries to blueberries to raspberries—the choice is yours. Berries pack a powerful punch because they’re bursting with antioxidants, which keep your immune system strong. Eat a serving of berries every day. 2.Broccoli is part of the goitrogen family—foods that can decrease the amount of thyroid hormone your thyroid gland produces. Foods that belong to this group are known as “cruciferous” foods. Not a broccoli fan? Other cruciferous veggies include cauliflower, kale, and cabbage. Eat one or more servings of these veggies a day. 3.Salmon contains vitamin D—an essential nutrient that works with calcium to prevent bone loss. Salmon also carries a megadose of omega-3 fatty acids that keep you healthy. Your body doesn’t naturally produce these fatty acids, so you have to get them from food. If you’re not into fish, get your vitamin D from eggs and mushrooms and your omega-3s from walnuts, olive oil, and flaxseed oil. Eats foods with these nutrients daily. 4.Turkey is an excellent source of protein—important because your body needs protein for energy and to build and maintain muscle. Weight loss is a common hyperthyroidism symptom, so eating enough protein can help ensure you stay at a healthy weight. Don’t eat meat? No problem—you can get protein from beans and nuts. Just try to eat protein at every meal. 5.Untreated hyperthyroidism can eventually weaken your bones and may lead to osteoporosis. To prevent this, get 3 servings a day of calcium from yogurt or other dairy foods, such as cheese and milk.

Hi, Frequency of urination is due to a few reasons 1) Diabetes mellitus 2) Diabetes insipidus 3) Irritable /overactive bladder 4) urine infection 5) drinking coffee and tea (they are diuretics) 6) drinking lots of fluids I am not sure if you are experiencing any other symptoms like increased thirst, increased hunger, losing weight, burning sensation when urinating, fever, Lower abdominal pain etc. You could get a fasting and post prandial blood glucose done to rule out diabetes. A complete urine examination with microscopy will rule out any urine infection. It would also help if you could consult a physician or urologist to diagnose your problem and who can provide appropriate treatment. Thank you.

From the limited info you have given, your wife seems to have late onset type 1 diabetes. If her blood sugars are well controlled, HbA1c is below 7% and she is not gaining weight, Insulin is perfectly OK. But beware of hypoglycemia. For more info on this condition, read my "Health Tips" section.

I want to know Some tips for sugar patient that how to maintain sugar and proper diet.
Mr. Lybrate-user, a person with diabetes mellitus should take a balanced but restricted diet, that provides exact amount of calories based on ideal body weight, extent of time spent on exercise daily and severity of blood sugar. He should avoid sweets, sweetened aerated drinks, deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries and foods containing fructose corn syrup, highly processed foods and high fat containing milk products. Consume more of green leafy vegetables and salads. Consume more of fiber containing foods like fax seeds. Use whole grain products, avoid refined flour like maida. Daily physical exercise of over 1 hour is necessary, to avoid weight increase. Exrcise also helps insulin action and reduced resistance to its action.

First of all, there is nothing to be scared of insulin. It is very safe and definitely not addictive. The diabetes can be managed with different medicines depending upon the doses you are taking now.

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... if you keep in touch. www.lybrate.com/drsajeev

Hello, both the sugar levels are slightly on the higher side suggestive of igt - impaired glucose tolerance. Kindly tell me what is your height and weight. So initially we need to start with dietary modifications and repeat sugars after 1 month if they come down its fine. If sugars are persistently elevated and your bmi is high then some medications need to be started do hba1c blood test. This will show wat is our blood sugar status in previous six months, if this is elevated it will confirm diabetes. Diet: stop sweets, no potato, no beetroot. Daily 30 min walking or jogging, no grapes, banana and watermelon, rice once a day.
