Treatment for hypothyroidism is giving thyroxine tablets. And dose are according to level of thyroid for life time. Avoid bad habits . Avoid stress. Some Relax during work.

Hyperglycemia is another term for high blood sugar. It is normal to have a spike in blood sugar after a meal, but chronically high blood sugar causes severe health issues. When we consume healthy sources of carbohydrates with plenty of good fat and protein, the glucose from the meal enters our blood in a slowly, and the pancreas responds by secreting a measured amount of insulin. Insulin shuttles the right amount of glucose into the cells and it is used for energy. There is not excess insulin running around in the blood stream to promote inflammation. We avoid “sugar highs” and “sugar lows” with balanced blood sugar throughout the day. We can easily go 3 hours or more between eating without experiencing sugar cravings or feeling shaky, irritable or tired. Since blood sugar imbalances perpetuate inflammation, stable blood sugar reduces inflammation and helps balance hormones. Because stable blood sugar means no sugar or carb cravings, even stubborn weight starts to melt away with balanced blood sugar levels.

If your blood glucose is well controlled, with fasting closer to 100 mg, PP 150 to 160 mg & HbA1c%<6.8, then you can take some nuts (which one not specified). Most important is to have a strict blood glucose control. Thanks.

You are definitely diabetic and it may not any symptoms initially. You need treatment .Diabetes affects all organs in the body – Eyes, kidneys, nerves, reproductive system all are affected, In fact, from toe to hair. For diabetic control, patient and doctor should be in constant touch for regular follow up and advice. The common symptoms are :-Both types of diabetes have some of the same tell-tale warning signs. Hunger and fatigue. Your body converts the food you eat into glucose that your cells use for energy. But your cells need insulin to bring the glucose in. If your body doesn't make enough or any insulin, or if your cells resist the insulin your body makes, the glucose can't get into them and you have no energy. This can make you more hungry and tired than usual. Urinating more often and being thirstier. The average person usually has to pee between four and seven times in 24 hours, but people with diabetes may go a lot more. Dry mouth and itchy skin. Because your body is using fluids to make pee, there's less moisture for other things. You could get dehydrated, and your mouth may feel dry. Dry skin can make you itchy. Blurred vision. Changing fluid levels in your body could make the lenses in your eyes swell up. They change shape and lose their ability to focus. Diabetes, often referred to by doctors as diabetes mellitus, describes a group of metabolic diseases in which the person has high blood glucose (blood sugar), either because insulin production is inadequate, or because the body's cells do not respond properly to insulin, or both. It is a difficult task to control blood sugar in the desired normal range. Whatever we eat is metabolised to sugar in the body to provide energy for our daily activities. For the absolute control, one has to monitor his / her blood sugar at regular intervals (Self-Monitoring of Blood glucose – SMBG). Though difficult, this can be done by a glucometer and keep a record. Get an idea of Fasting sugar (FBS) and 2 hours after food (PPBS), & HbA1C (inform me) and check before dinner and after every major food. The basic idea is to reduce the food intake to 1/3 of what you take now. The dictum of sugar control is diet, exercise, diet + medicine and at later stage medicine+ Insulin will be needed. There are different diet plans of varying calories for each person depending on his activity & life style. For diabetes, hypertension (high BP) and many long-term illness control there is the need for regular advice and follow up. Just one time consultation or advice is not enough to guide a diabetic in scientifically & medically correct manner. For giving you regular follow up you ask me with all details like your daily eating pattern and medicines you take. I assure you a proper guidance. If you keep in touch personally.

It is better for diabetics to avoid sugar/ honey/ jaggery/ sabudana as these are source of empty calories, cause spike in blood glucose levels & lead to obesity. sweets/ chocolates/ cold drinks/ ice cream should also be avoided. In case of sweet cravings it is better to include a piece of sweet fruit like banana/ mango/ grapes/ watermelon/ jackfruit/ dates. You may also have artificial sweetener (stevia) if still sugar taste is needed.

What happened if patients of diabetes is not taking tha medicines since 1 year.
Hi, actually it depends on status of diabetes, age of the patient, other disease if is there. If patient will not taking medicines for one year than, glucose will rise and all the complication will set. Patient may develop hyperglycemia and dka and even coma also. So it is very dangerous if glucose will rise much more. Even heart and kidney complication also will get earlier. Other main complication of infection also can occur any where in body. So never take chance.

For decades I was a rice eater and since two months, I have switched over to wheat rava[coarse] eaten in the same way as rice with sambar, rasam and buttermilk. Besides my morning breakfast comprises oats mixed with 1 to 1.5 tsp of jaggery and milk. I have stopped eating ghee, oily products except small qty. Oil used in making curry, sambar and rasam, outside foods, etc. Am I still open to risk of contracting diabetes and/or other health disorders? is jaggery better than sugar? please advice. Thanks doctor.

You don't need to switch over to a routine that is different from what you have grown up eating. Avoiding rice and ghee and your traditional breakfast foods is not the way to good health. The reason for your health being affected is not your traditional foods but the lack of discipline, stress, inactivity and intake of junk and packeted foods. Rice is easy to digest than wheat or other cereals and your body us used to it so go for your traditional unpolished rice in moderation and even ghee is good for health because fat is needed by your body even to manage sugar levels. Organic jaggery is fine to take. So don't demonise the traditional foods and stick to it. Try to look into other aspects of your lifestyle in order to maintain good health and avoid lifestyle disorders.
