You must be having type 1 DM . I will suggest frequent meals at 2 hr interval with low carbohydrate diet considering you want to gain some weight. You can have fruits excluding high glycemic load fruits like mango, chickoo, banana, custard apple, grapes.

Fasting should be around 100-110 and after meals 140-160; of course your levels are high. You should target hba1c of less than 6.5.

Hypothyroidism does not have any significant effect on salivary secretion. So thedryness experienced is most likely unconnected with hypothyroidism or due to reduced dosage of thyroxine. Since tsh level was 1.1 milli units, doctor might have decided to reduce the dosage. Ideally on treatment tsh should be between 3 to 4 milli units.

You got see a general physician. Most probably you are suffering from diabetes. Your itching is also related to fungal infection which co-occurs with diabetes. At age 19 yrs, high sugar is not welcome, dear Don't worry. Everything can be controlled easily.

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, 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. Type 2 usually in adults due to insulin resistance and treated with oral medicines.

Herbal tea with ginger is beneficial for thyroid functioning. In fact, beverages including coffee, tea, carbonated drinks and alcohols should be avoided by patients afflicted with thyroid disorders. In its place herbal tea may be an alternative option. Take punarnavadi mandoor and kanchnar guggul 1-1 tab twice a day. .take arogyavardhini vati 1-1 tab twice a day with warm water.

This yummy and delicious green vegetable is an excellent source to add heart-healthy fats to your diet. It contains high levels of potassium, folic acid, and vitamin E. One half of an avocado holds 140 calories. Enjoy this veggie by adding it to your salads. You may also grill them on your meats, or even spread on a toast. • Alternatively, mash half a ripe avocado on top of bread and flavor it with some salt and pepper.

Hi , your fbs and ppbs both are high. So I advice for hba1c to know the exact status. Check your medicines do not contain any sort of steroids. Follow diet plan, less carb. Less fat, high fibers diet. Avoid oily, fast and junk food, cold drink and juices, and dairy products also. If hba1c is high drugs are mandatory. Have a regular exercise also.
