These reports are normal. Only fasting is little bit high. If you want to confirm, there is 1 more test i. E hba1c which will confirm you that you are diabetic or not or even if you are pre-diabetic. The symptoms of diabetes are:- 1. Increased thirst and hunger 2. Frequent urination 3. Weight loss or gain that has no obvious cause 4. Fatigue 5. Blurred vision 6. Wounds that heal slowly 7. Nausea 8. Skin infections 9. Patches of darker skin in areas of the body that have creases 10. Irritability 11. Breath that has a sweet, fruity, or acetone odor 12.

Lybrate-user, first thing is to control hypothyroidism with appropriate treatment and bring tsh levels between 3 to 4 units /ml. If this is not achieved, then efforts to reduce weight will not be successful. You are over weight in fact you have grade 1 obesity with 31.06 kg / m2 bmi, so please see that tsh levels are brought to that level and then only you can try reducing weight. It is possible to cut up 2 kg per month provided strict diet control and exrcise schedule is adapted and adhered to.

Hi my friend are is 28. He's suffering from recurring hypoglycaemia from past 3 months. Docs did c peptide and serum insulin during the episode of hypoglycaemia. C peptide level is 0.46 serum insulin > 300 docs are suspecting my friend had taken insulin. But I'm sure he didn't. So is there any other causes that makes c peptide level low and insulin levels high. Can some one please help me.

An insulinoma causes the pancreas to release too much insulin, which causes blood sugar levels to drop (hypoglycemia). A person with an insulinoma will have a high level of C-peptide in the blood when they have a high level of insulin.

Mr. lybrate-user, Diabetes can be well controlled either with oral modern medicines or Insulin injections. The drug mentioned by you, is being advertised a lot. But there absolutely no proper clinical evidence. There are no double blind clinical trials. Lot of claims are made, without no real clinching evidence. It may at best be sued as a supportive therapy. Thanks.

Be on strict diabetic diet. Perform regular exercises or go for 1hr walk daily. Get your sugar levels checked every month and visit your doctor at regular intervals for follow up. You can take 1tsf of methi powder mixed with water in the morning on empty stomach. Chew 5-6 neem leaves in the morning. Take bittergourd juice or koolkol juice (0ne glass) on empty stomach in the morning. All these will help to keep your sugar levels under control.

I am 60 years old man. I want to ask how keep control over bp and sugar without having medicines.
Mr. Lybrate-user, if one does not have high bp or hyperglycemia (diabetes), then simple change in lifestyle helps one in keeping bp and blood sugar in control. Modified lifestyle means - regular exercise preferably 1 hour a day (even though 30 minutes is said to be enough), maintaining near normal eight (bmi <23 kgs/m2), taking healthy diet with great deal of green leafy vegetables and salads, eating 2 to 3 servings of fruits a day, using whole grain food products, avoiding refined flours like maida and items made of refined flours like pasta, bread, bakery items, sweets, aerated sweetened drinks (colas), junk foods and pastries. Also refrain from alcohol and smoking. But if diabetes has actually developed similarly if high bp has already set in then drugs are needed along with above mentioned life style modification.
