type 1 DM is auto immune and insulin dependent. insulin is the only available management. care should be taken that patient does not dehydrate or fast. take small meals every 2 to 3 hrs to avoid hypoglycemia. drink 3 litres of water minimum. avoid bananas, papaya, mango and other such high sugar content fruits. monitor sugar regularly and keep track that fasting sugar should range between 80 to 130. use insulin meticulously and judiciously.

Thyroid is a butterfly shaped gland in the neck. It makes thyroid hormone. Hypothyroid is a condition when thyroid is working poorly. When you do not have enough of hormone we need to replace it. It is done in the form of tablets. Thyroid medicines are hormonal medicine if you wish you can consult with me regarding further management with your complete medical history and latest blood thyroid reports.

Diabetic patent who is under medication and sugar level is in limits, can use HONEY?

Diabetic patent who is under medication and sugar level is in limits, can use HONEY?
Mr. Lybrate-user, well, if blood sugar levels are in strict control with fasting closer to 100 mg, pp 150 to 160 mg, hba1c%<7, then one may consider taking a spoonful a day. But honey is simply another form of cane sugar, with 50 % fructose & 50% glucose, plus some vitamins and antioxidants. It is bound to increase blood sugar levels almost immediately. Thanks for the question.

Lybrate-user, I understand that you are having pain in lower abdomen, lower back and probably cramps. I did not understand the word" dpo" certain short forms are unclear, better to write in full words. You are thyroxine 125 mcg a day. But you have not mentioned about current or latest tsh levels. Many a times if hypothyroidism is not under control (tsh between 3 to 4 mu/l), various symptoms can keep occurring. Apart from taking prescribed medicine you have to also exercise for 1 hour a day and follow dietary restrictions. It will be better if all the information is given, and you come in a private conversation, then I will be able to guide. Thanks.

SUGAR LEVEL CAN OPTIMIZE EASILY BUT DIFFICULT TO MAINTAIN FOR LONGER PERIOD OF TIME SO DO SUPPORT OF NONPHARMACOLOGICAL TREATMENT LIKE AYURVEDA OR PRANAYAMA YOGA THAT HELPS IN BALANCE IN ENDOCRINE SYSTEM.

Mr. Lybrate-user singh, to increase weight, you need to do two things - 1) increase overall food intake, particularly proteins. 2) exercise to build muscles. For increasing food intake continue what you are doing now, plus take at least 2 -3 eggs a day. Take a good quantity cheese. Increase total vegetable & fruit intake. Regular exercise will increase appetite, plus will help in building good muscle mass and weight. Better to join a gym and do a workout under the guidance of professional instructor.

Hi doctor, my mom is of 65 years age has hyperthyroid and high BP. One of her kidney is not working and it shrinked. Her creatine level is 3 and got highBP recently. I want to know what foods she has to avoid and what foods she has to take to make the creatine levels to come down. Please suggest

MD - Internal Medicine
General Physician, Bangalore
HI See her creatinine level may or may not come down inspite of good diet. What you need to focus is a tight control of her Blood Pressure . If her BP is still high her medications has to be revised so that BP is brought to control. Diet : No extra salt in diet, No Pickle, No Papads, Chips or Salted Biscuits. Avoid Fruits also.

Hi good evening lybrate-user, uric acid level 8.8 means you are suffering with a condition called gout. In which there will be lack of some enzymes which prevents the formation of protein end products the unprocessed products will get deposited in your joints and resulting pain, treatment you have to visit your doctor for anti gout medication and monitor your uric acid levels on regular intervals. Prevention by decreasing the intake of high protein diet like red meat, thank you bikram.

Will diabetes have any impact on our sexual life especially when it is under control.

Will diabetes have any impact on our sexual life especially when it is under control.
Dear lybrate-user, ideally it should not. Since you are already on insulin it means that you are absolutely normal in all other aspects like a non diabetic individual, provided your sugar levels are maintained well. Please start or continue self glucose monitoring and a 3 monthly hba1c record and do not worry.

How To Take Your Thyroid Medication
===============================
If you want to make sure that you are taking your thyroid medication properly, here are some guidelines to help.

Always check the prescription against what you receive. Don't allow generic substitutions.
Most doctors feel that taking thyroid hormone on an empty stomach allows for maximum absorption.
Many practitioners advise that you allow at least one hour before eating, because it allows for maximum absorption.
Be consistent about a high-fiber diet. If you start or stop eating high-fiber, get your thyroid rechecked, because it may change your absorption.
Many experts recommend you take vitamins or supplements with iron at least two to three hours apart from thyroid hormone. Iron can interfere with thyroid hormone absorption if taken too close together.
Be careful about taking calcium and calcium-fortified orange juice at the same time as thyroid hormone. Allow at least 2-3 hours apart, so absorption is not affected.
Don't take antacids within two hours of thyroid hormone. Allow at least 2-3 hours apart, so absorption is not affected.
Watch for interactions with antidepressants & thyroid hormone. Zoloft, Paxil and Prozac can make thyroid meds more or less effective. Talk to your doctor.
Don't stop taking thyroid hormone when you're pregnant or breastfeeding. It's necessary for you and your baby's health. Talk to your doctor about adjusting to the right dosage.
