Your current fbs and plbs are fine however they could be better. Fungal infection tells us that probably your sugar level is not consistently under control and it could be going higher at times. You will need to do a test called hba1c and will maybe require a change in the treatment based on the same. Heel pain could have multiple causes and glaucoma needs to be treated as per an ophthalmologist.

For BP you need tablets and healthy lifestyle like exercise and less salt. 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.

Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. I will have 2 recommendations for you: 1) please get a regular opinion of a diabetologist because one reading does not mean that you are cured of blood sugar problems. 2) as far as your leg pain goes, it can be due to multiple reasons but I can advise you in a better manner if I can see some of your blood test reports like cbc, esr, cro, serum potassium and serum vitamin d levels. Also please tell me whether there is any swelling, or any other s/s of inflammation like redness, local warmth etc? over the involved leg? also if possible please send me a clinical picture of involved leg pointing towards site of pain so that I can see and understand. Till that time you can actually start with ice packs, limb elevation at home and a short course of anti inflammatory medication do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Please clarify what do you mean by "thyroid problem" Because there are two main conditions like hypothyroidism (Under active thyroid gland), secondly Hyperthyroidism (Over active thyroid). Also please inform the hormone levels - T3, T4 & TSH. Thanks.

What are the symptoms diabetes and what are the precautions or cure for diabetes.
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.

Hello lybrate-user mam. If you are not sure about your reports then it's better to repeat the test Also please do HBA1C TEST as well. It gives 3 month average blood sugar values and fluctuations in blood sugar are possible if you eat lot of carbohydrates in your food (chapati n rice n bakery products) n such fluctuations are possible if you are running fever Anyways whatever may be the case don't panic all the conditions can be controlled please provide information regarding your ongoing medicine for diabetes n repeat the test.

Constipation may be due to decreased intake of fluids, fibre,fruits and veggies along with lack of exercise as wellas diabetic gastroparesis. Medication for constipation will cause you to become dependent on it.
