Fasting glucose<100 mg/dl is defined as normal. So a fasting of 99 mg/dl is definitely borderline. However, do not worry too much. Exercise a lot. Eat healthy.

Mr Satyeshwar, TSH level mentioned (9 milli units / ml) is after taking 50 mcg throxine for some time or is it before starting the treatment? If it is current, that is after taking treatment, then dose of thyroxine needs to be increased. Plus looking at height and weight your BMI is 30.12 kg/M2, which shows grade 1 obesity. Your ideal body weight should be 58 kgs. Hence regular exercise and diet control also required.

Mr. lybrate-user, Your query is very general, so it is difficult give any answer. Because medication is decided on blood glucose levels severity, HbA1c%, patients weight and extent of exercise etc. Unless all the details are made available there is no way I can give any suggestions. About foods one should avoid sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries, bakery items and sweetened aerated drinks. Consume more of green leafy vegetables, salads and permitted fruits. Thanks.

You can star with metformin to begin with 500 mg twice a day then check sugar levels. Also avoid direct sugar and sweets. It is good if you can walk abreast half hour every day.

Thyroid hormone is needed during organogenesis and plays vital role in IQ and brain development. It is advisable to keep TSH below 2.5 before and through out pregnancy for optimal brain development of baby. You may require to increase Thyroxine dose. Get your Free T4 and anti TPO test done and consult any diabetologist or endocrinologist for further management.

Mr. lybrate-user, Do you mean blood glucose veries between 23 mg to 444 mg? Because 23 mg is a very low and dangerous level. That can lead to severe weakness even coma. It will be better if you give following details Fasting, PP current levels, HbA1c%, drugs being taken for diabetes with dosage, dietary pattern and extent of daily exercise. Based on those details I will be able to give some suggestions. Thanks.

Try to conceive after your tsh level normalise. By the time, your periods would also regularise. Abnormalities in thyroid can cause problems with the fetus.

Mr. lybrate-user, If you have acute attack of gout, then you need to control the pain and inflammation with certain antiinflammatory drugs preferably with an injection. Then follow it up with tablets till the severity of acute attack is controlled. This is possible only with visiting your local doctor. Then you may also have to take drugs to reduce uric acid concentration in the blood. Plus avoid high purine (high protein) containing foods like organ meat, red meat, certain sea foods like sardines, salmon, scallops, herrings, haddock, mushrooms and mussels. Also avoid alcohol and aerated drinks (colas). Thanks.

The best treatment of Gout consists of restoring the balance of Vata (Air element) and detoxifying the blood. High protein diet should be avoided in cases of increased uric acid. Mix one teaspoon of apple cider vinegar in a glass of water and drink it two to three times daily. If you find this remedy helpful, you can increase the dosage of apple cider vinegar to up to two tablespoons. Take maha rasnadi kwath 2-2 tsf twice a day. Take maha yograj guggul 1-1 twice a day. Kaishor guggul and chandraprabha vati 1-1 twice a day. Avoid junk food. Fermented food. Spicy food. Tea.coffee. Do pranayama early morning. Avoid alcohol consumption. Consult me in private for more details.

Hello Mr. Lybrate-user, first of all I would like to tell you that don't be disappointed, there are so many people who are living with diabetes life long but it is under controlled with the help of medicine & diet planning. Your hba1c should be in the range of 6-6.5% for good control of diabetes. There are some dietary changes that will help you. Take small & frequent meal. Take more & more green leafy vegetables & salad in your daily meal. Avoid simple sugar & simple carbs in your diet. Avoid oily/ fried / outside food. Take whole wheat products or fiber rich diet like daliya/ oats/ multi grain flour etc. Take 1 cup of green tea in a day. Do regular walk/ exercise/ swimming/ jogging whatever you like atleast for 30 minutes.
