I am 49 yr old male dm2 + htn since 10 yrs. Pressure normal 130/ 80 with medication repace 25mg + stamlo (amlodipine) 2.5mg and blood glucose control pp 120 with zoryl 1mg at the time of break fast but fasting readings vary between 6.5 - 7.5. I take metformin extended release 1000mg after supper. But the fasting readings never fall below 6.5. I am sports enthusiast and play badminton thrice a week at expert level. With exercise in the evening the reading tend to rise as my intake goes up. Please advise me any long acting glucose control medicine for 24 hrs control well within 5.8. My hb1ac has always been well below 7.0 mostly remains 6.5. If hb1ac readings are well with in the range can ignore the fasting readings or is it equally important to maintain the fasting reading below 5.8 to prevent cardiac issues later. I also take cholesterol lowering drug fibator - half tab to maintain my ldl well below 80. Should you need any further details please write to me. Last but not the least use of sulfonylurea antidiabetic drug in the morning some cause hypo close to lunch time. I am worried of the side effects of this drug in long term. Kindly advise me alternate if any to this. My staple food is rice with daal, curry and curds. Pure veg

Looking at your details it appears your diabetes is in check. Slight high fasting is no problem. Nowadays hba1c level is looked at as guideline to assess control. You need not change anything. If pp levels go up can add voglibose 0.3 mg three times with each meal. Otherwise you are doing well. While playing if you feel levels are low always carry candy or gluco tabs.

lybrate-user, I am not aware of any vaccine being developed for treating or preventing diabetes. Normally vaccines are used or developed against infective diseases like - small pox, polio, mumps, measles, hepatitis, HIV etc (all viral infections) or bacterial diseases like pneumonia, TB, typhoid, etc. Diabetes can only be controlled by proper drugs, diet restriction and exercise. Thanks.

It takes around 6 to 8 weeks to reflect change in value of TSH. You can repeat test after 2 months of starting treatment. I think its already more than 2 months so you can go for test now.

I am a hypothyroid patient. I am using thyrox 125 for last one year. Now my tsh is normal i. E. 1.0. But from last one month I am feeling tingling at one side of face and head and my weight also decreased by 5kg in one month. My face and eyes are facing allergy. Lot of tiredness and when I sleep facing tremors. What is this? My physician has prescribed to reduce the dose of thyrox to100mg. Is it due to drug overdose. All my blood tests like blood sugar, kft, lft, lipid profiles r normal.

Hello your new symptoms can't be directly linked to overdose. It would be wise to check thyroid profile always as t3, t4 and tsh. Your current tsh levels are nml and not reduced beyond normal limits to suggest overdose. Many patients continue to develop new symptoms of hypothyroidism despite being on medicine and being in control. The doubt of overdose can be easily cleared by reducing the dose for a couple of weeks and rechecking levels. If your symptoms reduce, voila! if not, it only suggests that though blood reports indicate control, the disorder within the body still continues, causing new symptoms to appear. Hypothyroidism is a disorder where the thyroid cells are secreting lower than nml levels of thyroid hormones ie. T3 and t4. This lowered levels send a signal to the brain causing tsh, the controller of thyroid gland, to increase and stimulate production to meet the demand. Once the demand is met and t3 and t4 levels normalise, tsh will return back to nml. This is how the body repairs automatically when it is healthy. However, when the body's ability fails, this compensatory mechanism too fails and disorder persists. Thyroid replacement therapy, like the one you are on, keeps managing the effects of the internal disorder but doesn't do anything to correct it. And hence the lifelong need of these medicines. Only a medicine that can correct the deeper pathology, as with homeopathy, where the bodys ability to repair is restored, the disorder can be resolved. Give it a thought! meet a qualified homeopathic physician in person if interested. And yes, do not change your current dosage without consulting your doctor.

There has been no comparison between the two drugs till now. For all practical purposes, they are the same but sitagliptin offers the convenience of once a day dosing.

What is symptoms of diabetes. I think I'm suffering from it. Please give me right symptoms which show this.
invariably diabetes does not produce any symptoms which are easily recognisable, that is one of the reasons why most people miss it. But when fully developed it may cause excess thirst, excess urination, excess hunger, unexplained weight loss and tiredness. On getting the blood test done high blood glucose is seen. Fasting >126 mg, pp >200 mg and hba1c>6.5 % is diagnostic for diabetes.
