Best way to keep diabetes in control can you suggest me some treatment related to it.
Hello, Diabetes can be kept in good control by following means: 1) Taking appropriate medication as advised and without missing a dose. 2) Taking a restricted diet, that gives exact calories based on ideal body weight, extent of daily exercise. 3) Avoiding sweets, junk foods, deep fried foods, pastries and bakery items, sweetened aerated drinks (colas), fructose corn syrup containing products 4) Consume more of green leafy vegetables, salads and permitted fruits (100 g a day). There are various drugs available to control blood glucose, selection of a drug depends on various factors. Thanks.

You are mentioning t1 dm and taking treatment with oral drugs, then the condition must be t2dm, because t1 can only be treated with insulin injections. What new product are you referring? can you be specific? if you are talking about sitagliptin or vildagliptin with metformin, this could be quite useful to you too. But please inform me your weight, height, hba1c and blood sugar levels then I can help you.

I have diabetes from age age of 32. Currently age is 47. I am not comfortable with drug called metformin and all other drugs doesn't work for me to control diabetes independently. Doing yoga and pranayam since 5 years has good effect on fitness but no effect in bringing diabetes down. Previously jal-dhoti was bringing diabetes down by 40 points now that also has no effect. Spending 1.30 hours in day behind exercise. Current fasting reading 170-190.

I have high thyroid 18. Besides medicine how can I control it. What would be my diet. Help me.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology

Mr. lybrate-user, If STH is 18 mU/ L then adequate dose of thyroxine has to be taken to supplement the daily need, otherwiae all the symptoms will continue to be present. The exact dose of thyroxine depends on TSH, T4 level, body weight and sex of the person. By taking adequate dose one can control TSH very well. Thanks.

, yes sweetened aerated drinks are considered as unhealthy food. They contain a lot of sugar, which is not good for health. Secondly you are over weight with a bmi of 28.39 kg/m2, your ideal body weight should be about 80 kgs. Both these things are an invitation for diabetes.

lybrate-user, Canyou clarify what you mean by" I decreased intake of sugar & salt" Because if you talk only added sugar or sweets that one eats contains GLUCOSE, then it is wrong. All the food that we consume like wheat flour, jowar flour, bajra flour, rice, potato, bananas, bread, pastries other bakery items etc everything get converted to GLUCOSE in the body after digestion. Secondly actual salt intake should not exceed 2 to 3 grams a day. But every food preparation made at home, processed marketed or packaged food contains a large quantity of Sodium Chloride (table salt). Therefore, one can hardly reduce the intake unless there is very strict diet control with severe calorie restriction. Plus by reducing salt intake blood pressure does not go down. By salt restriction rise in pressure can be reduced. Thanks.

Tsh is 26 against a max. 0f 5. Esr 15 against max. Of 7. These tests were done when complained of ibs. I am taking medicines for thyroid. For ibs what should be done?

MBBS, MD - Internal Medicine
Internal Medicine Specialist, Faridabad
you can take medicines for thyroid..tab. thyronorm 150 mcg before meal.and for ibs you cut out such items as carbonated beverages, vegetables — especially cabbage, broccoli and cauliflower — and raw fruits.Fiber supplements. Taking fiber supplements, such as psyllium (Metamucil) or methylcellulose (Citrucel), with fluids may help control constipation. Fiber obtained from food may cause much more bloating compared with a fiber supplement. If fiber doesn't help symptoms, your doctor may prescribe an osmotic laxative such as milk of magnesia or polyethylene glycol.

Firstly Diabetes is a disease which can be controlled, not cured. He will need to have a strict diet control along with medication. There are many drugs available which can be given to him. If medicines do not work then Insulin can be tried. Don't loose hope, consult a diabetologist and follow his advice.

Mr. Lybrate-user, if she has excellent sugar control then taking a small banana occasionally is ok, but regular consumption is better avoided. To have very good of diabetes fasting sugar level should be closer to 100 mg, pp 150 to 160 mg and hba1c% <7. (ideally <6.8).
