Mr. Lybrate-user, it may be possible that due to diabetes he may be having fungal infection and that could be the cause of itching. Does he have any skin lesions like red papules (small pin head size swellings red in colour). If so then he may need anti fungal treatment plus anti itching drugs. Plus he should have good blood sugar control.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. If you have fasting blood glucose 200 mg and HbA1c% 9, then your diabetes is totally uncontrolled. Ideally fasting glucose should be < 100 mg, PP 150 to 160 mg & HbA1c% <6.8. It appears you need to change or up grade the present medication in order to control blood glucose and reduce possibility of developing long term complications associated a almost every single system. Another thing I notice is that your BMI is 26.78 kgs/M2 (normal <23 kgs/M2), showing over weight, which also is a contributory factor for high blood glucose. In this communication we are only allowed to give general guidelines but no prescriptions. Therefore, it is better if you come in a private conversation with all the necessary details, then I will be able to guide. Thanks.

Any rice can be taken. Brown rice is considered good due to its natural state ( un-polished ). It can be taken everyday. Only avoid processed and packaged food items. It is important to understand the concept of a balanced diet and have wholesome food and seasonal vegetables and fruits. It is based on the calorie count of each food item and the total calorie requirement for each individual. A dietician can help you in this regard ( after taking into consideration the activity level and health status ). If you are fit and healthy then badminton can be a great exercise. Please go for regular health check up and follow up properly.

Dear , bipolar affective disorder, or manic-depressive illness (mdi), is a common, severe, and persistent mental illness. This condition is a serious lifelong struggle and challenge. The treatment of bipolar affective disorder is directly related to the phase of the episode (ie, depression or mania) and the severity of that phase, and it may involve a combination of psychotherapy and medication. I request you to know more about your disorder, understand it and please do not panic. I know several people who manages their bpad effectively. Management is as good as cure. I repeat, do not panic. You will be able to manage your problem with psychotherapy and medicines. Take care.

Your current fbs and plbs are fine however they could be better. Fungal infection tells us that probably your sugar level is not consistently under control and it could be going higher at times. You will need to do a test called hba1c and will maybe require a change in the treatment based on the same. Heel pain could have multiple causes and glaucoma needs to be treated as per an ophthalmologist.

What you have stated is suggestive of gastro oesophagial regurgitation disorder, or in simple word the secretions from your stomach ascend back in the food pipe called oesophagus in the chest. This secretion is acidic and when it reaches throat, it produces sour taste in mouth and burning sensation. You should eat small meals some 2 hours before going to bed. Raise the head end of your bed by about 4 to 6 inches. You may need some prokinetic and proton pump inhibitor drugs if there is no relief. You may consult privately.

Hello, If weight gain is occurring inspite of treatment for hypothyroidism with levothyroxine means dosage not adequate. While on treatment TSH should be maintained between 3 to 4 mU/L, to be free from all the symptoms and succeed in weight reduction. You have not mentioned either the dosage being taken or the TSH level. Uncontrolled hypothyroidism can also cause muscle and joint painstoo. So please check TSH levels and see that those are maintained in the range mentioned above. Thanks.
