The reports are high as you can very well see. It implies that we have to adjust the medicines to ensure that you achieve the glycemic target of Hba1c <6.5% and fasting <100 mg/dl and 2 hour post meal blood glucose <140 mg/dl. We need to achieve a good control as you are young and we want to prevent long term damage to heart kidneys and nerves.

lybrate-user, eight reduction and tiredness can occur in diabetes if blood glucose is not under control. You have not mentioned her current fasting, PP glucose levels and HbA1c%, so there is no way to know how good the control is. Weight loss also does occur in hyperthyroidism along with other symptoms like tiredness, irritability, difficulty in sleeping, increased heart rate & palpitations, loss of appetite or increase in appetite, light menstrual periods, mental disturbance, muscle weakness, nervousness, shortness of breath etc. So pleas come back with present blood glucose levels & HbA1c%, that will help in giving suggestions. Thanks.

You must start exercise with proper guidance. Your food must be low in calorie. Like more leafy vegetables and low fat diet. Eat with smaller dishes. Use less amount of soft drinks or juices. Better to eat high fibre diet.

Mr. Lybrate-user, diabetes mellitus is occurring either due to lack of insulin or resistance to its action or both. (t2 dm). Since insulin is needed for daily for glucose, protein and fat metabolism, if it is lacking or there resistance to its action, then it has to be made available with help of various drugs. If not then there is persistent high blood sugar. High blood sugar affects small & large blood vessels, nerve fibers and almost every vital organ in the body. Untreated or uncontrolled diabetes causes blindness, chronic kidney failure leading to total failure, peripheral neuropathy, affection to feet, non- healing ulcers on foot, lower limb, can lead to loss of limb. In india 1 lac limbs are cut due to diabetic gangrene. Severe burning sensation and tingling and numbness may occur in the lower limbs. Silent heart attacks are common. So we need to treat diabetes for life long.

Hi Lybrate, Jaggery cannot be replacement for sugar in diet. It is sugar only in other form and taste. Needs more quantity than regular crystal sugar. The jaggary contains Iron and B12 vitamin is good for health in normal way. But it has similar effects like sugar in body making one prone to diabetes and obesity. Regards.

Thyroid disorders are supposed to chronic problems which may last throughout life. But the good thing is management is easy once the diagnosis is made properly & medication like eltroxin/thyrox are cheap too. Only things you have to do is follow lifestyle modification instructions given by your physician, do routine investigations of serum t3, t4 & tsh (at least every 3 months) and stick to the dose adjustment protocol of the drug. Thank you.

Dear lybrate-user diabetes is not cureable but can be easily controlled. Diet management and exercise are corner stones if treatment followed by oral drugs and insulin alone or in combination with oral drugs. You have. Mentioned the dtugs and dose being taken. If you have reduced your weight by diet and exercise and the dose being taken was very small only in that case you can reduce or stop medicines under physicians supervision. Ideally you should never stop medicines unless adviced. In few days your sugar will rise and consult your physician.

Hello, on that time to satisfy your craving you should eat sweet fruits like mango, banana, chiku, watermelon. Polycystic ovary syndrome (pcos) occurs when very small cysts (small, fluid-filled sacs) develop in the ovaries. The usual symptoms of pcos are light periods or no periods at all. This is because, in women with pcos, ovulation (the release of an egg) may not take place as often as normal. You should opt homoeopathic treatment, it has cure for pcos. Treatment is based on totality of symptoms and constitution. It takes time but resolve the disease by root. In pcos first we target to get your periods back to normal. Take fucus vesic. Q, 15 drops with water twice daily.

Hi Recurrent low sugars can be because of high insulin dose. Especially with long acting insulin it takes time to increase blood sugars. If she has these problems again and again please consult for insulin dose change. And for now she may require intravenous glucose and.close monitoring of blood sugars.
