Diabetics rarely touch levels of 100 as fasting and less than 180 as postprandial, your sugar is under control, no need to increase the dose, but watch our for extra sugars in the food/ fruits.

My uncle of age 57 years, height is 5'8" and weight is 156 kg, having diabetes from last 7 years on regular medicine. But now he is feeling blurring in vision, did not feel any warm and cold in his foot. In night frequent urination also. How we can manage this problem, or we should go to the clinic regarding this.

Mr. Lybrate-user, your uncle has very morbid obesity with 52.34 kg/m2 bmi. This one of the major reasons for diabetes being not in control. Secondly if he has developed any problem with vision, a retinal check up has to be done immediately, because severe hyperglycemia can lead to damage to retina. Loss of sensation in feet is also a problem due to diabetic neuropathy. If he can afford it is better if bariatric surgery is done, which will help in reducing weight, will also help in controlling diabetes. Things are serious do not waste time, get the eyes checked urgently.

Lybrate-user, hashimoto's thyroiditis (ht), which is the autoimmune condition, causing hypothyroidism. Treatment is same like hypothyroidism. With thyroxine tablets. The problems mentioned could be part of the symptoms of ht. However, some times digestive problems may not be connected with that condition. It is better if you increase intake of green leafy vegetables and fruits, that will help in reducing this. Plus hypothyroidism has to be well controlled.

I am 60 years old, diabetic patient since 10 years, please tell diet and exercise for me.
The diet will depend on your weight and sugar levels, both are not mentioned. Any exercise that suits you is fine as long as you do it for more than 1 h every day. Ideally brisk walking 5 - 6 kms a day or light jogging if you can do it. Plus some free hand exercise and stretchings and abdominals are good. If your physical activity is low then your caloric intake has to be 20 kcal/kg/d if moderate exercise - 25 kcal/kg/d, if vigerous 30 kcal/kg/d. One should avoid sweets, deep fried foods, fruits like mango, grapes, banana, chikoos. Take lot of green salads, fruits like apple, guava, pomogranate, pear, orange etc.

Mam, like you so many lady are suffering from like your problem but don't bother. It is curable one by a pronged treatment. At least according to the intensity it may take even a year or more. Without proper treatment this may lead other complications. So, every lady with like your problem should go through proper characterized homeopathic case recording for your individualized treatment else your problem will persist.

You have to follow "life style" changes in you for bettercontrole of sugar. Such as getting up early, take water 1L iter on emty stomach, go for walk for 1 hr , drink green tea light breakfast, light lunch , light dinner, never eat full stomach, go to your doctor with blood sugar reports, so that he can give correct dosage of drugs.

Dear Lybrate user: Being a Diabetic patient, one should take care of the sugar levels for any kind of fluctuations or associated complaints. Make sure to consult your doctor on regular basis for better health and follow-up. If you have stopped the medication then better you take care about your lifestyle and food habits modifications and regularly get check-up.
