It appears you are suffering from high blood sugar, (diabetes), high bp and dyslipidemia. You seem to also have fatty liver. These conditions must be properly taken care of. You also are obese (bmi 31.227). Please let me know are on any medication now if so what are taking? further how much exercise do you do every day? please furnish this information to help you properly. As regards the food you have to restrict deep fried foods, sweets and even red meat. Total caloric intake also has to be curtailed to reduce excess weight. Avoid tobacco in any form and alcohol completely. I await your information.

What is the difference between type 1 and type 2 diabetes? Which one is curable and which one is incurable?.

MBBS, Diploma in Diabetology, Certificate Course in Gestational Diabetes Mellitus (CCGDM), Post Graduate Course in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Mumbai
What is the difference between type 1 and type 2 diabetes? Which one is curable and which one is incurable?.
Type 1 diabetes is the kind in which the body cannot produce insulin hormone at all and hence daily insulin injections are needed lifelong to control sugar. Missing injections can prove fatal. Type 2 diabetes is the more common form which is mainly due to unhealthy lifestyles in genetically prone people. Lifestyle changes are the mainstay of treatment in this form and the person can be controlled for quite a long duration with tablets. Insulin becomes necessary after the tablets do not work well, which is usually after many years of diagnosis. Neither form is curable, it can only be controlled with medicines.

8 months back my tsh was 7.5 and I was put on thyrox 25 mcg. Now the tsh has shot up to 17.2 and I'm currently taking thyrox 50 mcg. I have been having bradykinesia symptoms for the past 6 months and my doc suspects that it could be PD and put me on rasalect1 mg one per day. I have been given to understand that bradykinesia is a symptom of hypothyroid as well. How do I know whether my bradykinesia symptoms are because of PD or hypothyroid?

Dear user with the limited amount of information available we can very well understand your concern for hypothyroidism and parkinsons disease. Be assured bradykinesia is not a symptom of hypothyroidism rather it causes bradycardia which is slowing of heart rate. Will suggest to get your tsh rechecked within 6 weeks so that if dose modification is needed it can be done. Hope that solves your query. Anything more then feel free to ask.

Hye, thanks for the query. Diabetes is a health condition that affects your body's production of insulin, which is needed to control your blood sugar levels. When you eat, your body begins to store sugar in its cells, but as a diabetic, your body does not produce enough insulin to help control how much sugar is being stored. Spikes in blood sugar levels from eating can cause you to feel fatigued and lethargic, due to excess sugar in your bloodstream and cells. When enough insulin is once again produced to regulate your blood sugar levels, the glucose can be burned off as energy, thereby making you feel less fatigued. For a diabetic it is best advised to have a diet planned as per the sugar levels, lifestyle and history. Though you can follow some guidelines - the sugar levels will fluctuate depending on what you ate or did not eat, stress levels and activity levels. You have to try and manage a balanced carb intake. Have small frequent meals. Do not fast for long hours. You have to eat 3 main and 3 mid meals. Your diet must include whole grains, seasonal fruits, vegetables, small amounts of nuts and dairy and pulses or dals or lean meats like chicken or fish and egg. Starchy vegetables need to be planned into the diet. Avoid a very heavy meal at one time. Avoid fruit juices, aerated drinks or sugarcane juice, honey, jaggery or sugar. Avoid junk foods. Exercise and stay active. Avoid exercise if sugar levels are above 250 mg/dl. Do not attempt to try out too many remedies as you could go into hypoglycaemia. Sleep well. It's all a matter of discipline.

Your blood sugar have to be maintained roughy fasting around 70to 80 at the best 90 mgm/d! and pp around 140mgm/dl and maintain your at according to your height and weight. Have a balanced diet go for morning walk regularly followed by free hand exercise. And your fever may not be related to your rise of sugar level. It may be due to some viral infection have lot of vitamin c which helps your as autoimmune system to prevent infection.

If your TSH starts increasing, then it is advisable to start the treatment. Meanwhile check it every 6 months to see if it is increasing. Also try to avoid any foods with artificial colours, flavours & preservatives, non veg, maida products. Try to keep your bowels clean by consuming lots of fresh fruits and vegetables. Consume non iodised salt or better rock salt. It will help you.

The sugar levels stated in your question are quite stable and if you reduce your weight about 72 kgs and go for regular walking exercises then everything should be under control. You can eat non veg occasionally but without much oils or fats and continue with your low carbohydrate (Sugar, Rice, Potato) diet.
