My comprehensive approach for a case such as yours would be to measure all metabolic parameters and optimize them after corelating the findings to your clinical picture. My preference is to switch to compounded Thyroids that contains both T4 and T3 (Thyroxine contains only T4). I would definitely optimize your vit B12 by giving you SUBLINGUAL vit B12. Many of these meds are not available in India in local pharmacies, hence we supply these through our compounding pharmacy.

Mr. Lybrate-user, it would have been better if you had mentioned the actual test results, as that would have given a clear idea. On treatment tsh levels should be between 3 to 4 mu/l, for being free from all symptoms. Further, it is better ifyou get a blood glucose test done. Thanks.

Hello lybrate user, there can be many reasons to it. E. G. You may be spending a lot of time in travelling to office changing modes of transportation e. G bus, rickshaw, taxi and so on. Secondly it may also be due to mental exertion which people experience in office due to work and spend time overthinking. When you overthink your body uses up glucose and this drains the body of the energy. You may replace it temporarily with some sweets and fast food, but still your mind has got into the habit of overthinking and that will not stop. Hence stop overthinking. Relax. Try not to run your imagination. This will help in long run. Or else consult any psychologist for further help.

Hello sir my name is somya I am 30 year old married female and I have sugar problem last two years what should I do.
Mrs Soumya, To give any suggestions, I need to know some details like : Fasting and PP sugar levels (present), HbA1c%, current treatment, dietary pattern and extent of daily physical activity. It is better if you come in a private conversation with these details,, where I will be able to give specific suggestions. In this communication we are supposed to give only general guidelines like - Avoid sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries, red meat and egg yolk. Consume more of green leafy vegetables, salads and permitted fruits (100 g a day). Exercise at least for 1 h a day. Basically diabetes mellitus treatment needs drugs plus following a modified life style.

My mother is a BP & Sugar patient for last 9yrs. Usually her average monthly Sugar check stands at around Fasting 116 & PP 175. But for last 3months her Fasting sugar showing around 150-160 & PP showing around 180-190. Though our regular physician has changed earlier tablets and also increased the doses with the new tablets, but still her fasting sugar level is not coming down. Please suggest us something. Her tablets for sugar are: 1) GLIMEPIRIDE & METFORMIN HYDROCHLORIDE (SR) Brand Name: GLIMESTAR M1.(1tab before breakfast and 1 tab before dinner). 2) VOGLIBOSE TABLETS IP. Brand Name: VOGLIMAC 0.3 (1 tab before breakfast/before lunch & also before dinner).

Mr. Lybrate-user kumar, the present treatment looks quite good. Fasting and pp levels are a bit high, but those can be managed by following a more strict diet and exercise schedule. I feel there is no further need to add any drugs. Her bmi is 27.55 kg/ m2, which shows she is overweight. Her ideal body weight should be 59 kgs. So all her food intake (calories) should be calculated considering that weight and extent of daily physical exercise and blood sugar levels. Even if she reduces 5 to 7 kgs, sugar level and bp will improve. So please look at that aspect rather than just adding one more drug. With regards.

Hello. It is very important for you to take care of your health. As diabetes can harm heart as well as kidneys and other organs. But. In your case reports are good and looks like sitagliptin works well for you. Weight control. Less carbs. More proteins. No soft drinks. No beer. That will help. Never to smoke and to take less oily food. Feel free to consult me if you need on this.

Mr. Lybrate-user, according to diagnostic criteria if fasting is >126 mg it is considered diabetes. Similarly if pp is>200 mg it is diabetes. Between 141 to 199 mg it is pre diabetic state. So it looks like you are having prediabetes. This can be definitely be controlled by diet and exercise. If you really adapt the modified lifestyle with balanced and restricted diet and regular exercise, refraining form alcohol and smoking, avoiding junk foods and pastries, you can remain free from diabetes for a considerable time. With regards.
