Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. It is most important to achieve strict blood glucose control to avoid the complications as well as help improve the condition. Most of the vegetarian food is less in protein. So if takes vegetarian diet regularly then there will be no problem. Avoid eggs, fish, meat and chicken. Thanks.

Hello, Thanks for the query. With TSH at 0.16 mU/L, you need to reduce the dose to 100 mcg per day, then check TSH after 6 to 8 weeks. If TSH remains at around 3 mU/L, then continue the same. If the level is still lower than 1 mU/L then reduce the dose further to 87.5 mcg per day. Thanks.

Are you taking calcium, vitamin d, vitamin b12? get these levels checked and ask your doctor to start you on these too. Thyroid comes because of stress and tension. You can go for counselling to manage depression, stress and anxiety. Please do exercises regularly to reduce pain. Click on private chat to connect with me.

Hi sir, Thanks for your query. Your question is wrong. You are suffering from Type 2 Diabetes. Medicine can be suggested only after we know the blood sugar levels, HbA1c & some other tests. Thanks.

Hello, Looking at your height and weight you have grade 1 obesity with a BMI of 33.75 kgs/M2. This can be a major contributory factor for your future problem. Since you have no diabetes now, it is important for you to cut your weight (ideal weight 55 kgs). By leaving breakfast there is nothing going to happen. Breakfast is said to be the best meal of the day, as keeps ones energy level high through the day. Thanks.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. The dosage of various medicines for glucose control can be adjusted on the basis of patients needs, doctor's advise and also based on dietary intake. Usually Glimepiride is either given once a day or twice in some cases. Metformin can be given 3 times a day again depending upon the need. Voglibose is usually recommended with each meal, that is three times a day. As it is mainly for reducing post food glucose rise. Thanks.

There is no cure for diabetes. It can be controlled only by diet exercise and drugs. Diabetic diet is normal balanced diet what you usually eat at home. Only you have to avoid sugar, junk food, fried food and fruit juices.

Hi Mr. Lybrate-user, taking only medicines is not the solution towards controlling your sugar levels. For controlling your diabetes you have to follow proper diet, do some brisk walk along with medicines. These all 3 will work together and you will get to kwow how fit you can be. Controlling diabetes are important as fluctuations of sugar levels can cause many other problems also like heart problems, kidney disorder, etc. You need to follow a proper diet plan so that your sugar levels will be in normal range. There are some general guidelines you must follow till you consult for your own diet chart. 1. Avoid sugars. 2. Avoid simple carbohydrates like maida and its products, white rice etc 3. Have complex carbohydrates like whole wheat flour chapatis, oats, dalia, brown rice etc. 4. Avoid banana, chiku, mango, grapes. 5. Avoid fruits juices. 6. Avoid potatoes, sweet potato, arbi. 7. Have more salads and other vegetables. 8. Have small and frequent meals.
