I am hypothyroid patient, I am taking thyroxine 200 now. Is there any side effect to take this medicine to me?

I am  hypothyroid patient, I am taking thyroxine 200 now. Is there any side effect to take this medicine to me?
Mr. Lybrate-user, if you feeling fine with that dose and if tsh levels are within normal (desired) limit, then there is absolutely no problem. Thyroxine is actually similar to the natural hormone produced by thyroid gland. So most often it is very well tolerated. Some times side effects may be seen, early in treatment. But majority of patients do not experience any problems. Thanks.

Where to inject insulin (Sites) ?

Where to inject insulin (sites)?

Insulin is injected subcutaneously, i. E just below the skin in fatty tissue. If insulin is injected deeper in muscles then it may get absorbed quickly and can lead to low sugars. Insulin should not be given in scars, moles, varicose veins, sites with broken blood vessels etc. As it may alter its absorption. Insulin injection site must be rotated each time to avoid lipodystrophy (at least, take insulin injection an inch apart from the previous site).

Sites where you can take insulin injection:

  1.     Abdomen: this is a preferable site for self-administration since absorption of insulin is quicker and predictable. You can take insulin, at least, two fingers width away from belly button.
  2.     Thigh: this is second best site after abdomen for self-administration of insulin injection. Top and outer aspect of the thigh is preferred. Avoid injecting insulin on the inner side of the thigh.
  3.     Arms: normally when somebody else is administrating insulin to diabetes patient it can be given on outer back aspect of the arm away from shoulder and elbow in fatty tissue.
  4.     Buttocks: upper outer padded part (wallet area) is a preferred spot.

You are not diabetic, neither your blood sugar levels are normal. You are prediabetic on way to develop diabetes if strict, disciplined measures are not taken immediately. Weight control, regular exercise & diet can help. Try brisk walks 40 mins. A day for 5 days a week. Plus avoid sweets, sugar.Eat 5-times at regular 3 hrly intervals small meals with enough leafy vegetables. (A dietician can help you ).Repeat FBS, PPBS & also get your Hb1C & lipid profile done after 3 weeks. If these reports are normal you can continue the same. HbAIC should be 6.7% or less. Repeat these tests every 3 months. You may need medications if your blood sugar levels do not reach normal levels. The lipid levels may also need to be normalized if high. Hope this helps. Take care.

Anitaji, Primarily, diabetes needs to be in excellent control, with fasting close to 100 mg and PP around 150 to 160 mg and HbA1c%<7. Achieving this will help in relieving symptoms like burning and other symptoms. There are certain drugs used to help reduce the intensity of it,.

Basic things which are necessary for Diabetes Person. Diabetes is around 350-400, which is not coming down.
Mr. Lybrate-user the blood sugar levels mentioned are very high, need to be urgently brought closer to normal with appropriate treatment. It appears present treatment is not at all helping. Leaving sugar levels so high is an invitation to ; ong term complications of diabetes - like retinopathy and blindness, kidney damage, neuropathy, problems with lower limb blood supply and ulceration etc. As regards your question on" basic things necessary for a person with diabetes" it is rather unclear what exactly you are looking for. Still following few things I am giving which one needs to do. 1) take prescribed medications properly without missinga dose. 2) aim at achieving fasting level of 100 mg and pp 150 to 160 mg and hba1c% <7.3) 3) exercise regularly for at least 1 hour a day, to maintain normal weight and spend extra glucose. 4) avoid sweets, sugar and gur, deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries, sweetened aerated drinks, fructose corn syrup containing products. 5) avoid alcohol and smoking. 6) keep a track of blood sugar and hba1c% regularly. 7) get eyes checked for ruling out retinal involvement. As mentioned above you need to bring sugar levels much lower. May be treatment change is needed.

Stop eating too much of onion or garlic. You can take bath with an anti dandruff shampoo. Rub it twice in your armpits & other skin folds. It will help you.

Nutrient-rich foods that improve your health may also benefit your thyroid gland, antioxidant-rich fruits and vegetables more plenty of water: Blueberries, tomatoes, bell peppers, and other foods rich in antioxidants can improve overall health and benefit the thyroid gland. Eating foods high in B vitamins, like whole grains, may also help. flax oil, Selenium: Tiny amounts of selenium are needed for enzymes that make thyroid hormones to work properly.

Have courage. Modern medical science has made great strides in management of diabetes. There is no known scientific cure as on today. But with proper diet as advised by treating doctor, daily light exercise like walking, swimming sports etc and proper medication as advised followed by repeated monitoring, regular review by your doctor will help in good control this way you can avoid or postpone the usual complications of diabetes. Keep increasing your health education and knowledge about diabetes by all possible means. Keep away from short cuts and unscientific remedies. Best wishes.

how to reduce diabetic eye pressure

MBBS, MD - Internal Medicine
Internal Medicine Specialist, Faridabad
how to reduce diabetic eye pressure
Diabetes causes vascular damage throughout the body. Because the blood vessels within the eye are so tiny, any damage at all can have a tremendous impact on eye health.

One of the most prevalent of the diabetes-related eye diseases is glaucoma. In fact, people with diabetes are between 40% and 50% more likely to develop glaucoma than non-diabetics.

Glaucoma causes the pressure within the eye to increase gradually, damaging the optic nerve and leading to partial or complete vision loss. The exact mechanisms for this are unknown. While there are several types of glaucoma, the most common form is open-angle glaucoma.
Open-angle glaucoma

The eye is full of fluid which continually refreshes. Normally, fluid drains at a point in the eye where the iris and the cornea meet. If this opening becomes even partially blocked the fluid drains out of the eye too slowly, even as new fluid is added. This backup of fluid causes an increase in pressure within the eye, damaging the optic nerve.

Open-angle glaucoma does not cause any symptoms until the disease is well-advanced. By that time, vision is impacted, with loss of peripheral vision first, advancing to tunnel vision and then total vision loss as the disease progresses.
Treatment

The goal of treatment is to lower intraocular pressure. This can be approached one of three ways: lower eye pressure, improve drainage of fluid from the eye or decrease the volume of fluid produced within the eye.

There are a variety of eye drops that may be prescribed.

Prostaglandins (xalatan, lumigan) and cholingeric agents (isopto carbine and isopto carbachol) act to increase outflow of fluid from within the eye.

Beta blockers (betimol, timoptic, betoptic) and carbonic anhydrase inhibitors (trusopt, azopt) reduce the production of fluid within the eye.

Alpha-adrenergic agonists (iopidine, alphagan) both lessen fluid production and increase fluid outflow.

Physicians may prescribe a combination of the above.

Oral medications may also be prescribed, if eye drops alone are not sufficient. These are usually in the form of a carbonic anhydrase inhibitor.

If medications are not sufficient to halt progression of the disease, then surgery might be necessary.

Drainage implants might be inserted within the eyes to facilitate drainage.

Laser surgery, known as laser trabeculoplasty, can be done to open clogged drainage canals.

Filtering surgery, known as trabeculectomy, removes a small piece of tissue from the location of the drainage canals, widening the opening and improving drainage.

The best possible treatment for glaucoma is prevention. Everyone above 40 years of age should have an eye exam at least every three years. Diabetics should have a dilated examination of their eyes annually.

Well-controlled blood sugar level are another preventive measure that will lessen the odds of developing glaucoma.
