Endocrinologist, Dharwad
Mr Somashekar, Thyroid is the gland present in every one, it produces hormone thyroxine which is necessary from development of brain, plus all the important metabolic activities in the body. Deficiency of this hormone causes hypothyroidism and excess causes hyperthyroidism. Commonly seen problem is hypothyroidism. This causes weight gain, cold intolerance, swelling of face, and lower limbs, difficulty in speech, inability to concentrate, hair fall, dry skin, psychological problems. Replacement with thyroxine hormone is the only treatment.

Hi, Eat small frequent meals. Take a fruit or a glass's of milk at 11 am so that you don't go for low sugar at 12noon. Time your food every two hours. Eat little by little. Include protein rich snack like Sprouts, boiled grams, grilled Paneer (made from skim milk), grilled mushrooms, roasted legumes. Regards

Yes, you need to take treament. Please visit a doctor and go for a medical check up. Please understand that if you follow a healthy lifestyle and maintain the sugar levels in good control then you can lead a very normal life without worrying about any complications. Please read more about Diabetes and it's management from the internet and adapt all the good habits. Please go for regular tests and follow up with the doctor who can personally check your health and advise accordingly. Learn yoga and pranayam which can help you stay fit and energetic. Also do exercise everday day (you can do a variety of exercise - plan how to be physically fit ). Please revert after that for further clarification (also do HbA1c and other tests advised by the doctor ).

It would be advisable to always go for physical examination with a doctor so that her health can be assessed in real time. (based on the clinical findings of the doctor, complaints, medical history, family history and other reports ). This physical examination will ensure that nothing significant (observation of facts) is lost.

Hello Sir, Your blood glucose levels are borderline high. With appropriate medication and proper diet and exercise I am fairly certain that the glucose would come down to normal range. Reducing your weight will help you a lot too to reduce your blood glucose levels. The diet that will help you both with weight loss and blood glucose control is as follows: - eat plenty of vegetables either as salads or in curry form (made with less oil or fat). Avoid potatoes, colocasia, yam etc. Limit your carbohydrates intake- like rice, roti, chapati etc. Use whole grains wherever possible like bajra, Raghu, different types of mullets, whole wheat Upma etc. Take a small bowl of dal everyday. You can eat 2 fruits (avoid mango, jack fruit, sapota etc). Can drink glass of milk, take curds/buttermilk. Avoid sweets, cakes, biscuits, junk food etc. Exercise at least 45 min/day, includes brisk walking, cycling, jogging, swimming etc. I cannot advise you which medication to take in open forum due to Lybrate rules. You can consult me privately for that as private consultation. Or you could see a good diabetologist where you live. I hope this has helped you Thank you.
