Mr Waseem, T1 diabetes can only be treated with Insulin injections only. There is no other drug. Plus good diet control and exercise can help. There are no other drugs for T1 diabetes.

Lybrate-user, your thyroid hormone levels and tsh are fairly normal. Therefore thyronorm 25 mcg per day appears to be helping you. You are having grade 1 obesity with 30.35 kgs/bmi (normal <23 kg/m2). That may be one of the reasons for cholesterol being high. To reduce that you will have to control your diet, avoid deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries, bakery items and items made of maida or with other refined flours. Daily 1 hour's walking is essential for reducing the weight. Your ideal body weight should be 61 kgs, hence your diet should be calculated to give calories based on that weight. That will help in weight reduction as well as normalising cholesterol. Thanks.

Mr. lybrate-user, Blood glucose level of 256 mg is very high. It has to be brought down as early as possible with appropriate medication. To be in control fasting should be closer to 100 mg, PP should be 150 to 160 mg mg & HbA1c% <6.8. If this is not done, then you are inviting severe long term complications of diabetes related multiple vital organs. Plus looking at your weight and height it clear that you are obese with a BMI of over 30 kgs/M2. This has to be brought down to 23 kgs/M2. A person with diabetes can eat following fruits like papaya, apple, orange, sweet lime, water melon, guava, pear & pomegranate but only about 100 g a day, that too when blood glucose is well controlled. Thanks.

Uric acid builds up when the body makes too much of it or fails to excrete it. It is a waste product resulting from the metabolism of food. The level of uric acid in your blood can become elevated if your body produces too much or if it doesn't efficiently dispose of it. It is very important to keep your diet in check to avoid food that increases the Uric Acid content in the body. Symptoms of uric acid · Excruciating pain in the foot or big toe. · Difficulty walking. · Waking up from sleep due to foot pain. · Occasionally feeling pain in the knee and ankle. · Limited ability to move. · Persistent itching around the big toe joint. · Gritty accumulations of uric acid crystals called tophi that appear on the joints near the elbows, knees, fingers and toes. Foods You Should Eat If You Are A High Uric Acid Patient Diet Tips for High Uric Acid Patients • Lower fat intake as excess fat reduces normal excretion of uric acid. • Liberal fluid intake to keep the urine dilute. • Restriction or elimination of alcohol. Rajmah Via Shutterstock What to avoid • Shell fishes, red meat, minced meat, meat extracts, organ meats, fishes (sardine, roe, makeral). • Whole pulses (masur, rajmah, chana, chole etc.). Other dals are allowed. • Vegetables and fruits - green peas, spinach, french beans, brinjal, cauliflower, mushroom, chickoo, custard apple. Diet rules • Use less salt while cooking. Avoid adding salt while cooking rice or in chapatti dough. • Use adjuncts like tomato, vinegar, cocum, amchur, lime juice, curd, pepper powder to make the food cooked with less salt palatable. • Remove the salt shaker from the table. • Avoid salted nuts/biscuits, papads, pickles, chutneys. • Avoid excess consumption of processed and preserved foods; eg. Bakery products. • Caution - Do not overdo on salt substitutes as that might cause an electrolyte imbalance. Tomatoes Recommended Foods 1. Fresh cherries, strawberries, blueberries and other red-blue berries. 2. Bananas. 3. Celery. 4. Tomatoes. 5. Vegetables including cabbage and parsley. 6. Foods high in bromelain (pineapple). 7. Foods high in vitamin C (red cabbage, red bell peppers, tangerines, mandarins, oranges, potatoes) 8. Low-fat dairy products. 9. Complex carbohydrates (breads, cereals). 10. Chocolate, cocoa. 11. Coffee, tea.">Hello- Diet Tips for High Uric Acid Patients • Lower fat intake as excess fat reduces normal excretion of uric acid. • Liberal fluid intake to keep the urine dilute. • Restriction or elimination of alcohol.

How Sugar problem controlled and what kinds of precautions are taken in sugar problem?
Hi Type 1 diabetes can be controlled with insulin alone. Type 2 Diabetes can be controlled with exercise, proper diet and oral medications. Precautions to prevent complications in diabetes are: 1. Regular exercise and small frequent meals. 2 Regular follow up with diabetologist. 3. HbA1C every 3 months to make sure diabetes is under control, once it's within the target repeat every 6 months 4. Annual eye check up. 5. Annual blood and urine tests to look at the kidney function, liver function, heart, cholesterol and many others. 6. Drink plenty of water. 7. Sleep well. 8.

lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. When on treatment ideally TSH should be maintained around 3 to 4 mU/L, to be free from all the symptoms of hypothyroidism. So if the TSH level is 5.4 mU/L, then there is a need for increasing the dose by about 12.5 mcg and check TSH after 6 to 8 weeks to see if the desired level is reached. Thanks.

Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Mr. Lybrate-user, if it hypothyroidism, then treatment with thyroxine in adequate dose is the main treatment. It is essential achieve very good control and reduce tsh level to 3 to 4 mlunits/l, then all the symptoms will be in check. He should avoid soy beans, soy containing products, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, radish, mustard, pea nuts, coffee. Use whole grain flour for chapati & roti, should avoid maida and other refined flour and items made out of those. Should avoid bakery items and high fat milk products. Should exercise regularly for at least 1 hour, essential for maintaining normal weight. Thanks.
