Lybrate-userji, if vitamin d deficiency is there, then treatment has to be taken for a longer time with a higher dose. There are sachets of vitamin d3, to be taken once a week for 8 weeks, later once a month for a few months. Calcium supplements may also be taken. Thanks.

Lybrate-user with the limited information provided it appears that your mother is getting corns which are an initial phase of diabetic complications. It will be advisable if you can tell her to soak her feet in luke warm water regularly, make sure the water is not very warm as diabetics usually loose temprature sensation in their feet. Meet a podiatrist/diabetic foot expert for better care of her feet. We expect her sugars are fairly in control. Any case for a good control of diabetes regular exercise, controlled diet and medication as advised is the key to treatment.

Mr. lybrate-user, Your blood glucose is absolutely normal nothing to worry. But looking at your height and weight it is clear that you have grade 1 obesity with a BMI 30.41 kgs/M2. Your ideal body weight has to be 55 kgs. Therefore, if you do not want diabetes to come, then it is absolutely essential to take a restricted diet, avoid sweets, junk food, pastries, bakery items, sweetened aerated drinks (colas), fructose corn syrup containing products and also avoid smoking and alcohol. Thanks.

Lybrate-user, fasting blood glucose level of 247 mg/100 ml is too high. That means after food it will go close to 350 to 400 mg/100 ml. This high level of glucose leads to excess of glucose being excreted from the urine, leading to a great degree of weight loss, tiredness, lethargy, no energy to do work and a host of other symptoms. It will also affect her eyes (retina), small blood vessels, nerves, kidney and heart. So rapid blood glucose control is the only option. She has to be put on appropriate medication and blood glucose levels should be brought down to fasting closer to 100 mg, pp 150 to 160 mg & hba1c%<7. Otherwise situation can be dangerous. Please initiate proper treatment, plus diet control and some physical exercise. Thanks.

Mr. lybrate-user Kumar, Bajra roti is just as good as jowar roti. There is hardly any difference. Both contain mainly starch. It can be eaten for any of the day's meal. All dry fruits are good enough. But almonds and walnuts (akrod) are supposed to be much better. One can eat 5 to 8 almonds and a few walnuts in the morning. Other dry fruits can be eaten occasionally. There is nothing like great benefit in dry fruits. Thanks.

Diet restriction, daily exercise like walking for 40 min and various medicines - oral - according to your levels of fbs and ppbs with hba1c is ideal remedy. There is no treatment to cure permanently but one can control level of diabetes mellitus. Consult doctor at your city in person.

I am sure you are thyroxine tablets for hypothyroidism, once that is controlled it is possible for you to do regular workouts and reduce weight. Firs target on loosing 2 kgs per month, which is possible by reducing the food intake by about 20% and continuing your gym workout. If you feel hungry, take calorie free foods like tomato, dilute butter milk, clear soups etc. Check tsh levels every 6 - 8 weeks to stabilse the dose of thyroxine.

Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. I will have 2 recommendations for you: 1) please get a regular opinion of a diabetologist because one reading does not mean that you are cured of blood sugar problems. 2) as far as your leg pain goes, it can be due to multiple reasons but I can advise you in a better manner if I can see some of your blood test reports like cbc, esr, cro, serum potassium and serum vitamin d levels. Also please tell me whether there is any swelling, or any other s/s of inflammation like redness, local warmth etc? over the involved leg? also if possible please send me a clinical picture of involved leg pointing towards site of pain so that I can see and understand. Till that time you can actually start with ice packs, limb elevation at home and a short course of anti inflammatory medication do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance.

Thyroid hormone is needed during organogenesis and plays vital role in IQ and brain development. It is advisable to keep TSH below 2.5 before and through out pregnancy for optimal brain development of baby. You may require to increase Thyroxine dose. Get your Free T4 and anti TPO test done and consult any diabetologist or endocrinologist for further management.
