I have diabetes shall I go for insulin or medicine enough at age 36 ?
It depends on sugar levels and type of diabetes. Exogenous insulin at this age is only required if you are detected lada. Active infection, surgery, very high blood sugars with ketone in urine. Etc. In other normal cases of type 2 diabetes oral medication is sufficient to control sugars.

12 days ago, I discovered my sugar was 127/248 fasting and random. Doctor put me on medication metformin 500 mg. Is it possible to reverse the condition and stop medication?

Once established then diabetes is difficult to reverse. Yes but weight loss, proper diet and regular exercise can help to control blood sugars in initial period without medication. Life style modification is very important.

What is a good diet for a sugar patient? Please help me.
Mr ashok, a person with diabetes has to take a balanced diet which should have carbs, proteins and fats in proper proportion, plus avoid sweets, sugar, junk foods, pastries. Increase the intake of green leafy vegetables, salads and permitted amount of fruits. Caloric intake should be based on weight and sugar levels.

Your tsh value of 3.31 milli units/ml is really the ideal level when on treatment. It means the dose (75 mcg/day) is correct, there is no need to change it. Continue the same. But do check of tsh once in 6 months to see if level is ok.

No need medicines tips for increased uric acid levels and gout watch your weight. Try to lose weight slowly. Eat fresh fruit, vegetables, whole wheat products and some pulses (high in purine) every day. Enjoy low-fat milk and dairy products daily. Keep an eye on the purine content of food. Avoid offal, shellfish and crustaceans and tinned fish such as sardines in oil. Eat no more than 100g of meat, sausages, fish and poultry a day. Drink alcohol only occasionally, as it affects the elimination of uric acid. Eat low-fat food. The consumption of high-fat foods encourages weight gain. Drink at least two litres of low-calorie fluids a day. Recommended fluids are water, tea and fruit juice.

Hello Mr. lybrate-user! Although your blood sugar levels are not alarmingly high, nevertheless high blood sugar levels do have their detrimental effects on the body. The oral cavity (mouth) is not saved either! High blood sugar levels bring down the immunity of the body and minor and small infections also escalate causing a lot of problems. I strongly suggest you to keep your blood sugar levels under control and meet good physician who can help you with that. Oral Health can be kept optimum by timely visits to your dentists and taking his/her recommendations seriously and putting them into practise. A good dentist will always tell you about best practises and tips and tricks about keeping a good oral hygiene. Do not ignore small decays and never ignore gum disease, as these are especially more common in diabetics. Regarding a good toothpaste. Well there is no such thing as the best tooth paste. Any tooth paste is always as good as your brushing habits and techniques. Although I would suggest you to keep away from tooth pastes which have any type of abrasives in it, as long term use of these can be detrimental to the tooth structure. There you go. I hope this was of some help to you. Do take good care of your teeth! Thanks, Cheers.

You are referring to hypothyroidsm I think. In that case based on your tsh levels and body weight, you have to start treatment with thyroxine tablets (thyronorm). This treatment has to be rgularly taken and for lifetime.

Dear lybrate-user, the reports which you have put for your father here, few are normal and few are in prediabetes range. To remove any doubt I would suggest you to get the following tests done 1) HbA1c % 2) Fasting blood glucose (after 12 hour fast overnight) 3) 2 hour post 75 gram gluccon-D blood glucose [take 75 gram glucon D dissolved in a glass of water, and measure blood glucose 2 hours after glucose intake] 4) It is advisable to get a lipid profile done also With these reports please consult an endocrinologist.

For hypothyroidism taking thyroxine tablets is the only remedy, if she is on it that is good. If not then that treatment has to be started right away. In addition she should avoid cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, mustard, all soya containing products and coffee. She should consume more green vegetables, fruits and whole grain flour breads. Iodinated salt should be used. However, taking thyroxine tablets in the recommended dosage is a must.
