I am diabetic 26 years old. Hba1c 7.5 .how long I will use metformin ?will I use it throughout my life?
The treatment of diabetes is not that simple. There are many classes of diabetic drugs. It depends on extent of diabetes and complications to decide medicine for the diabetic person. Dosages are also decided upon depending on your acute and chronic sugar levels, fasting sugar levels, post prandial sugar levels, urine sugar levels, urine microalbumin levels, urea and creatinine levels. So, a complete diabetic profile needs to be done to reach for the best drugs and proper dosages. Here is the list of tests, please get them done and follow up with me. I will do the best and give you a proper treatment. 1. Hba1c. 2. Sugar - fasting and pp. 3. Urine - routine and microscopy. 4. Urine microalbumin. 5. Urea and creatinine. 6. Lipid profile. Follow up with the reports. I will set up a wonderful treatment plan to control your sugar levels. Additionally I will also make a customised dietary plan for you to take care of your sugar levels naturally.

Hi drink some bitter gourd juice on an empty stomach each morning. First remove the seeds of two to three bitter gourds and use a juicer to extract the juice. Add some water and then drink it. Follow this treatment daily in the morning for at least two months. Take pranacharya diabeto and shilajeet capsule twice a day with water. Take vasant kusumakar ras twice a day. Avoid sweets. Take small meals in less time interval. Do pranayama early morning. Avoid alcohol consumption.

Mr. lybrate-user, Diabetes is diagnosed when fasting glucose is 126 mg and above, PP 200 mg and above& HbA1c%6.5% and above. Since your readings are much below the prescribed criteria, there is no diabetes and hence, no treatment is needed. Continue your present life style. Thanks.

lybrate-user, Fasting 189 mg is high. Ideally when in control blood glucose should be: FBG:closer to 100 mg, PP 150 to 160 mg & HbA1c% <6.8. Good blood glucose control depends on - appropriate drug & dose selection, pluse daily regular exercise, weight control and exact quantity of food intake. A doctor can only guide, but it is the patient who has to follow every single instruction meticulously. In your case it is necessary to first target the fasting glucose level and bring it closer to 100 mg, by adjusting night time insulin dosage. Then we will have to look at PP & pre lunch and pre dinner levels. Plus a close look has to be given to diet and extent of exercise. Thanks.

Herbal tea with ginger is beneficial for thyroid functioning. In fact, beverages including coffee, tea, carbonated drinks and alcohols should be avoided by patients afflicted with thyroid disorders. In its place herbal tea may be an alternative option...Application of watercress's paste on the enlarged neck is also an effective remedy....take punarnavadi mandoor and kanchnar guggul 1-1 tab twice a day

The patterns of depressive thinking and drug dependence are strong after so many years. Wait for the result of homeopathic medicines, you can seek a counselor's help (preferably home visit) she may feel good about it. Try giving more time, talking to her assuring her, comforting her.

How to control the d diabetes from high label and what took the food for retained from this.
Mr Narendra Kumar, If diabetes is diagnosed then it is necessary to start treatment with appropriate anti diabetic drugs either oral or Insulin injections or both if needed. Selection of drug will depend upon severity of the condition. I am sure treatment must have been already initiated. In addition to that patient has to take a balanced and restricted diet that gives exact calories based on ideal body weight, sugar levels and extent of daily exercise. Plus consume a good deal of green leafy vegetables and salads. Exercise daily for at least 1 hour, brisk walking is good. Plus avoid sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods and pastries. If you want any specific suggestions or prescription then please come in a private conversation where I can give specific suggestions. In this communication we are supposed to give only geeneral guidelines.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Main reason for blood glucose remaining very high is the medications given are mostly not appropriate or inadequate. Secondly there may be an issue with dietary intake as well as physical activity. When on treatment with correct drugs and dosage FBG should be <100 mg, PP 150 to 160 mg and HbA1c%<6.8. The levels mentioned are too high. These can lead to more severe problems with all other systems as uncontrolled diabetes can hasten the long term complications. Hence, it is essential to achieve strict blood glucose control. Thanks.

Thyroid is a hormonal organ. Hormones are signals in our body which effect various vital processes of the body. You can link them to traffic lights for the smooth and safe flow of traffic in the body. Unfortunately due to several known and unknown reasons, some hormonal organs like thyroid start to underperform or over perform leading to hypo or hyper function respectively. When we prescribe medicine for hypothyroid patients - we just provide supplementation of deficient hormone in the body. Hypothyroidism and Thyroid cancer are two very things and should not be related as such. We currently have no medicine to cure the thyroid gland - we just have medicine to fulfil the hormone that was supposed to be manufactured by the thyroid gland. Since the requirement is daily - that is why the medicine is given daily. Since the requirement is lifelong- thats why the medicine is lifelong!

I have hypothyroid so I should not eat peanuts but I am missing nutrition values. What is the substitute of peanuts?
lybrate-user, If your TSH is very well controlled (3 to 4 mU/L) then occasionally taking peanuts is fine. You can take egg white, dairy products, as a substitute. Other pulses are a comparatively good source of proteins. Most important is to avoid soy beans and soy containing products. Others are not such a problem. Thanks.
