And can you brief what is my test results.

Firstly, I would recommend free t3 and free t4 levels rather than total. If you are not symptomatic, may not require treatment but periodic assessment is required.

Apart from above medications I think you should take short course of insulin like mixtard 30/70 twice daily with regular physical activity along with proper diabetic diet including timely intake and avoiding oily, fatty and fried items plus avoiding sugary items. Take proper timing of sleep. After reaching optimal level of blood sugar you can gradually taper the insulin and can be stopped provided strict follow up of diet, physical activity, oral drugs. All the best.

Dear lybrate-user! Desi Gud jaggery is as good and bad as simple plain sugar, soft drinks and colas. It has no added benefits which is a myth.

I have diabetes and I am using patanjali aloe vera juice which contains sorbitol so is it safe for me to use it on regular basis or does it affect ny blood sugar.

Lybrate-user, Thanks fr the query. First and foremost is to achieve a strict blood glucose control with fasting < 100 mg & PP 150 to 160 mg & HbA1c% < 6.8. Taking too much of sorbitol does increase glucose level. Thanks.

My body temperature in morning comes to be 36 36.2 or 36.4 celsius. It should be 37 degree celsius. On the contrary my thyroid and liver function test is normal. I experience too much phlegm (mucus) even if I eat simple food like vegetables (cucumber tomato) or paneer or fruits or soup etc.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Body temperature mentioned is fine. There is no problem with temperature being 36 degrees or so. Core (inner) body temperature is always well maintained. As regards eating vegetables and fruits causing the problem mentioned by you, there is no such relationship between these fruits, vegetables and respiratory secretions, unless one is allergic to any of those. Thanks.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Ecosprin is given to reduce aggregation of platelets so that blood flow in the coronary arteries is not affected. So taking ecosprin is advantageous to every person with diabetes as in diabetes along with glucose lipid metabolism is also deranged. Thanks.

Homeopath, Chennai
Homeopathy treats the person as a whole. This means that homeopathic treatment focuses on the patient as a person, as well as his pathological condition. The Homeopathic thyroid treatment medicines are selected after a full individualizing examination and case-analysis, which includes the medical history of the patient, physical and mental constitution etc. A miasmatic tendency (predisposition/susceptibility) is also often taken into account for the treatment of chronic conditions. You can easily take an online consultation for further treatment guidance and permanent cure without any side effects

Pay close attention to your food choice. ·        Eat less carbohydrate food sources like chapatti, rice, noodles, pasta, bread etc as they help in gaining weight and storing fat. ·        While having lunch or dinner eat vegetables and dal to fill your stomach rather eating lots of chapattis or rice. ·        Have a healthy breakfast like poha, idli, upma, plain dosa, oats, dalia or khichdi with vegetables. ·        Eat a balance diet including good quality proteins like: fish, lean chicken and eggs. If you are a vegetarian then include skimmed milk, low fat paneer, butter milk, soy bean or soy milk in your diet. ·        Avoid ghee, butter or vanaspati. Prepare your diet with vegetable oil like sunflower, safflower soybean or olive oil. ·        Eat plenty of salads. ·        Eat fresh fruits including apple, orange, pineapple, papaya, sweet lime, berries, guava, watermelon, mask melon etc. ·        Avoid eating outside junk and fried foods like pizza, pasta, roll, burgers, cakes, chocolates and cookies. ·        Have an early dinner. The earlier the better, giving your system more time to digest the food. ·        Avoid cold drinks/alcohol as they add empty calories to your diet. ·        Avoid fat enriched milk products like cheese, sweets, full fat cream etc. ·        Drink 3 liters of water in a day. ·        Try to have less sugar in food and beverages. ·        Try to drink 2 cups of green tea in a day as green tea helps in weight loss by aiding digestion. ·        Avoid red meat like mutton, beef, lamb or pork. ·        Eat sprouts or roasted chana, whenever you feel hungry.

SKTripathy.
lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Jaggery is made from sugar cane juice like sugar is made. So there is no difference in sugar and jaggery. Both are containing sucrose, hence eating either of these substances is bound to increase blood glucose level. Thanks.
