Ldl >180 suggests high risk for coronary artery disease. Hdl is good cholesterol and <40 also suggests cad risk. I think you should consult any physician for starting statins therapy. Recheck lipid profile after 3 months. Good diet and regular physical exercise will also help in hdl improvement.

How much sugar level is right at the age of 40 years?
at any age normal sugar level should be 70 - 110 mg / 100 ml fasting and after food it should be < 140 mg/ml. Age has nothing to do for these levels.

Hello Sir, Chicken and fish both are very good sources of protein. I would advise you to take them instead of mutton if possible. Take skinless chicken. Thank you

I am 27 and obese.
Lybrate-userji, t2 diabetes does run in families, passes on to children from parents. So there is a real possibility of you getting it too. However, one good thing about t2 dm is that it is a preventable disease. By that it means that if one maintains a healthy modifies lifestyle, one can remain free from it or postpone it for a number of years. Healthy lifestyle means - exercise regularly, for at least 1 hour a day, take a balanced diet, avoid excess sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries, other bakery items, high milk products, aerated sweetened drinks (colas), fructose corn syrup containing products and highly processed foods. Maintain a normal weight (bmi <23 kg/m2) your present bmi is 27.01 kg/m2, showing definite over weight. That needs to be reduced (ideal body weight + 57 kgs). By following above things you can remain free from diabetes for a considerable number of years. Thanks for the question.

I am a 47 years female with hypothyroidism (Since 10 years), diabetes (since 3 years) and hypertension. hypothyroidism is due to hashimoto where antibodies are present and presently taking Selenium supplement to reduce antibodies. Taking Eltroxin 125 mcg daily as thyroid replacement. My Diabetes is as such well controlled, my last HbA1c was 6.3% which has increased from 6.1% and I found that my PPBS stays higher especially after breakfast. It goes beyond 200 mg/dl. Sometimes even around 290! I have discovered that same thing if I eat in lunch, PPBS is less around 140-150 or sometimes even less than 120 mg/dl. PPBS after dinner is between the two ranges. I.e. Around 160-180. My main question is whether it is advisable to eliminate wheat and rice completely from the diet to reduce PPBS levels? It is difficult to do that since it is our staple diet and is contained in all items. I am taking Metformin 1 g morning and evening and skip taking Metformin when I avoid dinner. I am also taking Diabecon DS tablet which is shown to reduce FBS and PPBS levels considerably because I confirmed it by stopping it for about 10 days, though I was taking Metformin, my FBS and PPBS levels shoots up like anything. Once I started taking Diabecon DS again, both FBS and PPBS levels reduced considerably. My last fasting insulin was 9.93 and fasting glucose 100 mg/dl gave 1.33 as Insulin resistance and 90% Beta cell function by Homa 2 calculator as found on internet which is widely used to measure IR. Now, people who advocate Low Carbohydrate High Fat diet on diabetes forum, says residual circulating insulin should be reduced for which you need to lower your carbohydrate intake. I was told that fasting insulin should be <5 and if Blood sugar control is difficult with this value, it can be <7 but not more than that as more insulin causes more fat storage and ultimately pancreas are whipped to secrete insulin by some drugs. I was taking Glycomet GP-1 forte once in the morning but was getting hypoglycemia since 6 months due to glimepiride in it which was increasing insulin levels, so stopped taking it and now not getting any hype episodes. It is known from various research sites on internet that Gymnema extract (Meshashringi, Gurmar) is very effective in reducing FBS and PPBS levels, but increase insulin levels. So, is it advisable to take Gymnema extract (Ayurvedic medicine) which helps a lot in reducing FBS and PPBS levels? I am taking Arkamin for hypertension once in the morning. So, my question is, is it necessary to reduce carbohydrate intake to 20% which comes to around 100g of carbs each day? People say, since we diabetics cannot process carbs efficiently, we need to reduce it's consumption to around 100g or less for good diabetic control. What should be ideal PPBS level after meals? And What should be fasting insulin level?

CCMTD, CCEBDM, C.Diabetology, American Diabetes Association, DOMS, MBBS
Endocrinologist,
What is the treatment for diabetes?
Hello I am Dr. Tanvi diabetes and thyroid (endocrinologist) specialist from mumbai. Treatment of diabetes depends on many factors. What is the duration of diabetes, type of diabetes, your age, your job profile, other factors like kidney and liver parameters. So treatment of diabetes changes from person to person. The main aim is to control blood sugar (glucose) levels within the normal range, with minimal fluctuations to low or high levels. Type 1 diabetes is treated with: insulin exercise, and a healthy balanced diet type 2 diabetes is treated with lifestyle changes with weight reduction, healthy diet, and exercise, oral medications. If oral medications become ineffective treatment with insulin is started. Gestation diabetes (in pregnant woman) limited oral medicine and insulin is needed. If you wish you can consult with me regarding further management with your complete medical history and latest blood sugar/ glucose reports.

HEALTH TIPS FOR THYROID PATIENTS
Omega -3- fatty acid helps to control the hyper stimulated thyroid gland. Proteins are necessary for the building of muscles and to provide energy for the body. Protein sources also contain L-glutamine which helps in rebuilding the gut and de-inflaming the body.
• Eat cold water fish, flax seed oil and nuts to get the omega-3-fatty acid necessary for the body.
• Include soy, turkey, walnuts, salmon, tuna and trout in your hyperthyroidism diet.

My uric acid level is 6.2 and heels are paining too much. What should I do? any thing to avoid in diet?
Requires detailed examination and investigation. Preliminary investigations suggested: hb, tlc, dlc, esr, blood sugar fasting & pp, uric acid vit d urine r/e x-ray of the affected part. Anyway it may be tried sleep on a hard bed with soft bedding on it. Spring beds, folding beds or thick mattress are harmful use no pillow under the head. Do hot fomantation paracetamol 250mg od & sos x 5days. Caldikind plus 1tab od x10. Do neck, back, knee & general exercises. It may have to be further investigated. Do not ignore it. Let it not become beginning of a bigger problem. Make sure that patient is not allergic to any of the medicines that he/she is going to take. If it does not give relief in 4-5days, inform.

My mother-in-law is diabetic & under medication for the same. A couple of days back around 9am she felt weak & giddy. We asked her to lie down & immediately gave her some sugar to chew. She was not responding to us & was giving blank looks. After some time she got up and started going around normally but the previous 3 hours activity was erased from her mind. What could be the reason? whether we were correct in giving her sugar to eat? any test required?

Hello, diabetic patients are more prone to develop hypoglycaemia (low sugar level). The episode which you have narrated is because of this. You did a great job by giving sugar to your mother-in law at the time. You just saved her. Brain is mainly dependent on sugar. When blood glucose level goes down even for a fraction of seconds, patients will develop dizziness, loss of consciousness, seizure etc. Timely food intake will help to avoid such episodes.For further assistance you can concern me privately.
