It depends. If the pancreas is still able to produce insulin and there is obesity alongside, medicines are given in conjunction with insulin.

Dear lybrate-user, diabetes is a multi factorial disorder. That means that more than one factor is responsible for developing diabetes. Many people have history of diabetes in parents or siblings but not all of them develop diabetes. Genes when combine with mental stress, sedentary lifestyle, improper diet, smoking and alcohol addiction lead to diabetes. Now prevention of diabetes is by preventing each factor. Exercise regularly, meditate as and when possible, have balanced healthy diet and avoid smoking and alcohol! prevention is better as there's no cure for diabetes till date! hope this helps you!

Please understand that Thyroid medicines are for life. There is no permanent cure available for this problem. She will have to take these medicines forever. Just ask her to treat these pills as friends for life. Just like taking roti and dal. These medicine also can be taken. Her weight is also high. She needs to reduce it else her sugar levels will go out of control. Follow these rules for diabetic diet. 1. Eat every two hours mini meals. Don't eat big meals. Take more green vegetables/salads. 2. Eat whole grain food/grains like ragi, wheat, jowar instead of refined grains like maida/ sooji/ white bread etc. 3. Reduce foods with high GI Index like potato, white rice, banana, mango. 4. Avoid all forms of simple sugars like Colas, juices, sweets, cakes, biscuits, pizzas, noodles etc. 5. Eat daily fruits with low/medium GI index like apple, guava, mosambi, orange. 6. Eat lot of proteins like dals, sprouts, egg, chicken etc with every minimeal. 7. Drink lot of water. One glass every hour. 8. Do at least 30-45 mins of exercise everyday.

Take medicine to maintain thyroid test in normal range. Ask a doctor for required dose. Keep repeat testing every three months or so. Reduce fat and sugar consumption. Eat more vegetables and fruits. Eat 200 gms of salad half hour before every main meal. Eat less chapaties and rice and more of dal, soya badi. With this your weight will reduce. It will be better if remain in constant touch.
