Lybrate-user, looking at the test results given following are high - triglycerides, ggt and tsh. This means you have hypothyroidism (tsh 20.5mu/l), which needs immediate treatment. Secondly high triglycerides (tgl) also needs to be checked. Ideally tgl should be less than 150 mg. High ggt value points to a problem with liver, particularly with alcohol drinking. Thanks.

Being alert and going for the regular follow up is the way forward. The results depend on many factors like diabetes control, how the BP is stabilized, the response of the body to the medicines etc. Being disciplined with daily routine can bring about positive changes. Eat healthy food (with calorie control) with fresh vegetables and fruits. Take the help of a dietician who can help you with a variety of food choices. Exercise every (doing Yoga every day can be very beneficial ). Once the diabetes is well controlled, the other complaints also subside upto some extent. You can also take Homeopathy along with the regular medicines as it is safe and gentle. Homeopathy improves the immune system and helps in natural balance (natural healing is stimulated) and therefore contribute to the general well being. You can contact me for a private consultation if interested.

You are saying you have hypothyroidism and sugar problem but it appears you are taking only eltroxin tablets for correction of hypothyroidism. What about diabetes treatment? diabetes rarely produces any noticeable symptoms until it becomes really severe. Hypothyroidism is unlikely to add to diabetic symptoms. Basically feeling weak, tired and lethargic are the symptoms one notices.

Diabetes - 9 Self Management Tips

Are you suffering from diabetes and are looking for ideal at home management remedies? Diabetes is a health condition, which occurs when the blood sugar level of the body rises. There are several ways following which you will be successfully able to manage your diabetes. They are as follows:

  1. Exercise regularly and track your workout patterns. Exercise is the most important lifestyle choice for a diabetic patient, which allows you to maintain a good shape. It boosts your body's metabolism rate and insulin uptake process. By taking notes on your exercising habits, you will be able to make timely and required changes. 
  2. Stop consuming fast food. Try to abstain from eating outside food and reduce your intake of sugar, salt and high calorie food. Meal should be prepared at home using light ingredients and less amount of salt and sugar.
  3. Quit smoking as it is very harmful, especially if you are a diabetic. Smoking narrows your blood vessels, as a result of which, your blood circulation gets disrupted.
  4. Increase your fiber intake. Fiber is beneficial for all diabetic patients and helps in smooth functioning of your digestive processes. It also help in reducing your cholesterol and blood sugar levels.
  5. Take care and pay attention to your feet properly. You should wash your feet in lukewarm water regularly and dry them gently. You should moisturize your feet with a lotion. Check on your feet for cuts, sores, redness, swelling and blisters and consult a doctor in case of an unusual foot sore.
  6. Get your eyes checked frequently as diabetes affects your vision in serious ways, which may also lead to blindness. Regular eye checkups will help you to prevent retinopathy.
  7. Take proper care of your teeth which includes brushing and flossing at least two times every day. This is because diabetes makes you prone to several serious gum infections. Go for regular dental checkups if you have type 1 or type 2 diabetes and in case you observe swollen, red gums, consult your doctor immediately.
  8. Avoid stress and adapt ways to eliminate stress. Your body hormones, which are produced in relation to intense stress, prevent insulin from working efficiently, which increases your blood sugar levels and stress levels further. Relaxation techniques are effective for dealing with stress. 
  9. Opt for several small meals instead of a few large meals every day. This helps in keeping your digestive processes active, which in turn increase insulin sensitivity.

The best way to increase HDL cholesterol which is a good cholesterol is to walk daily and exercise. The good thing is that his bad cholesterol (LDL) is also low. Hence not to worry too much.
