YOur pancreas is getting weaker which is the cause of sugar. Can you send me your FBS, 2Hr PPBS & HbA1C to me privatelyDiabetes affects all organs in the body ? Eyes, kidneys, nerves, reproductive system all are affected, In fact, from toe to hair. For diabetic control, patient and doctor should be n constant touch for regular follow up and advice. It is not as easy task to control blood sugar in the desired normal range. Whatever we eat is metabolised to sugar in the body to provide energy for our daily activities. For the absolute control, one has to monitor his / her blood sugar at regular intervals (Self-Monitoring of Blood glucose ? SMBG). Though difficult, this can be done by a glucometer and keep a record. Get an idea of Fasting sugar (FBS) and 2 hours after food (PPBS),& HbA1C ( inform me ) and check before dinner and after every major food. The basic idea is to reduce the food intake to 1/3 of what you take now. The dictum of sugar control is diet, exercise, diet + medicine and at later stage medicine+ Insulin will be needed. There are different diet plans of varying calories for each person depending on his activity & life style. For sugar control there is the need for regular advice and follow up. Just one time consultation or advice is not enough to guide a diabetic in scientifically & medically correct manner. For giving you regular follow up you ask me privately with all details like your daily eating pattern and medicines you take. I assure you a proper guidance.

Hba1c 7.8% is a manifestation of poor contol you need it below 7 (6.5-7.0) try daily 45 minute strenous/ breathless type exercise small frequent diet and each meal contains 1/4 rice/roti 1/4 dal, fish 2/4 vegetable check fasti g and pp after 2 months if still uncontrolled neeed medication medication need to control, when your own system fail as you aging own system became less and less capable of control sugar.

The causes can be many. Firstly i would want u to tell me your creatinine values. Second, are u 100% complaint to ur medicines? If you are then may be we need to find the cause for the high bp. That may involve adding a new drug or adjusting the doses of ur old drugs. Also we need to search if any other causes are there for ur HTN.

lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. During pregnancy it is absolutely essential to maintain TSH levels if the following manner: 1st trimester: 0.1 to 2.5 mU/L, 2nd trimester: 0.3 to 3 mU/L & 3rd Trimester: 0.3 to 3.1 mU/L. Your present level is bit too high. It is better to increase Levothyroxine tablets from 62.5 to 87.5 (by 25 mcg per day) and check TSH after 4 to 6 weeks. For proper fetal development and desired outcome of pregnancy TSH should be maintained in the above range. If you have any doubts please do come back. Thanks.

D) avoid sweetened fruit like banana, mango, litchi, chickoo, grape etc. Can have fruits like guava, pineapple, papaya, orange, mousambi, strawberry, watermelon, pomegranate, a handful of walnut daily (akhrot) e) avoid white/polished rice, take unpolished rice like brown rice/wheat/jowar/ragi, moong and chana dal. F) avoid ghee/ butter./coconut oil/excess salt intake like papad/pickle. G) avoid red meat. Take fish/chicken. H) avoid alcohol and carbonated drinks like soft drink 4.

Mr. Lybrate-user, if you are controlling blood sugar well it is really good. Good control means fasting closer to 100 mg, pp 150 to 160 mg and hba1c%<6.8. Secondly slightly higher blood sugar level or even much higher level is hardly producing any day to day changes in symptoms. Blurring of vision can occur particularly if hypoglycemia (<70 mg/100ml) is seen. I suggest get your retinal examination done by visiting a good ophthalmologist. Thanks for the question.
