I am losing weight and physically also since last year. I have diabetes since Last five years.
If diabetes is not well controlled, then a person can loose weight. So please take care and control the blood glucose levels. Fasting should be closer to 100 mg, PP 150 to 160 mg & HbA1c% <6.8. If this not achieved then one gets in to various problems including weight loss. Thanks.

I am type 1 insulin dependent diabetic taking injections every day for last 10 years. Recently I read about insulin pens which look less intimidating. How are they different from injections and are they better or worse?

There are many types of insulinis. Most of them are available in pen. If you are type 1, you would benefit from buying a permanent insulin pen. You would only have to change the cartridges when the insulin gets over inside. Most companies have helplines in place to assist taking of the injections.

Mr Meharaj, There is no specific answer for why you have got this condition, as there are many reasons like iodine deficiency, autoimmune disease (Hashimoto's Thyroiditis), Goitre and also genetic factors. But if one has hypothyroidism (high TSH), it has to be treated with supplement of thyroxine tablets. This treatment has to be continued for life time. There are no home remedies, that can help in controlling thyroid deficiency. One thing you can do is avoid soy beans, soy containing products, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, radish, mustard, peanuts and coffee. Consume more of green leafy vegetables and salads, fruits, low fat milk products. Also exercise daily for at least 1 hour a day. These things help additionally. But drug treatment is essential.
