I am the patient of the sugar can you please tell me the suggestion how to control the sugar.
Mr Nadir, Blood sugar control or diabetes control, needs specific drugs plus dietary restriction and regular exercise. The drugs will depend on type of diabetes and blood sugar levels. In case of T1 diabetes only Insulin injections are to be taken and for T2 DM either oral or Insulin injections or both may be needed. If you want any specific advice, please come in a private conversation with details like fasting and PP sugar levels, HbA1c%, present drugs with dosage, dietary pattern and extent of daily physical activity.

Is consumption of honey has adverse effects on a diabetes patient. What are the fruits which may be taken by a diabetes patient and in what quantity.

Hello, Both Honey and table sugar have glucose and fructose. So, there is not much benefit in substituting sugar for honey. Infact honey is far more sweeter than sugar. 1 tea spoon of honey has more number of calories than 1 tea spoon of sugar. So, if you must take honey, then consume it in only very small quantities, and please be aware that it will also raise your blood glucose values. You can eat 2 fruits everyday. You can eat the following fruits - apple, pear, orange, sweet lime, papaya, small bowl of melon or water melon, medium sized banana, pomegranate etc. I would advise you to avoid pineapple, mango, chikoo, custard apple etc. Hope this helps you. Thank you

If the creatinine rise is due to diabetic kidney disease it is not completely reversible. She will need to alter her diabetic medicines though.

Mr. lybrate-user, RBS 102 mg is normal blood glucose level. If a persoe does not suffer with diabetes, then in his body Insulin takes care of glucose metabolism effectively. Only thing is one should take a properly balanced diet avoiding too much of sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries, other bakey items and sweetened aerated drinks. Also refrain from alcohol and smoking. Exercise regularly so as to maintain normal weight. Thanks.

Her thyroid level should be under control to feel well being and active. She might be taking medicine for thyroid, so get check her tsh level in every 6 month. She should take nutritious diet and a glass of milk daily. Give her homeopathic medicine to cure her trouble permanently. Give her homeopathic five phos tablet, 4 tab four times daily to provide some strength.

Lybrate-user we suggest that one gets a fairly good readings from home based glucometers. As such there is no comparison between lab and glucometer because there are pit falls associated with both. As you are already on insulin and need to check frequently so using a glucometer is a fairly good idea. Hope this solves your query.

If she is sure about taking the medicines regularly and not having missed her doses, then she will require a slight increase in her dosage. If not, then she could regularise her medicines and repeat the test after around 4 to 6 weeks and then increase the dose if the tsh is still high.
