Lybrate-user, with bilirubin 1.7 mg/dl, there is presence of jaundice. It is not such a serious condition. He should continue taking normal food. Since he is also has diabetes, the precautions being taken in diabetes are good enough. He should avoid sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries, bakery items, items made out of maida, sweetened aerated drinks (colas), sweet corn syrup containing products, highly processed food products, red meat, high fat containing milk products. Should consume more of green leafy vegetables, salads and permitted fruits. Refrain totally from alcohol and smoking. Total diet should provide exact calories needed on the basis of his ideal body weight, exercise done daily and blood sugar levels. Thanks.

Mr. Lybrate-user, there needs to be proper titration of blood glucose levels and insulin dosage plus dietary intake. First fasting glucose should be concentrated and brought under strict control, by adjusting insulin dosage at night. Later day time or pre lunch and post lunch blood glucose can be corrected by making necessary adjustment of insulin dose. Plus your diet has to be looked at and also the amount of exercise undertaken daily. Thanks.

lybrate-user, Some times in a normal person after food glucose level may be lower. This happens because there is adequate insulin. But if repeated episodes of hypoglycemia are occurring, then you may have to get an Insulin assay done to see if there is excess insulin secretion. If there is no symptom then one need not worry. Thanks.

Mr. lybrate-user, Unless hypothyroidism is well controlled with TSH level brought around 3 to 4 mU/L, all the symptoms will not be in check. So you will have to check TSH levels after 6 weeks and if still high, then dose of thyroxine will have to be increased. It I appears that starting dose given is too low. It should have been over 100 mcg. Thanks.

Mr. Lybrate-user, if you have diabetes, then first thing is to get your blood sugar level under excellent control - fasting closer to 100 mg, pp 150 to 160 mg and hba1c%<7. Because hyperglycemia causes damage to kidney leading to increase microalbumin uria and later albumin uria. A properly balanced diet is required, avoiding sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries, bakery items, sweetened aerated drinks and high fat milk products. Consume a good deal of green leafy vegetables, salads and permitted fruits. Most important is strict blood sugar control. Thanks.
