If her total count is high then probably she has bad infection in her interstitial lung disease (ild. She may need suitable antibiotics and good sugar control. As she is 87 I think better to consult in person with her all reports for better results.

Cause of pain is possible infection and inflammation. While doing sex, friction is not tolerable. For diabetics, infection should be prevented at any cost because healing takes much more time. Control diabetes and infection. Pain will go away as papules subside.

Apply hot fomentation twice daily. Avoid bending in front. Postural correction- sit tall, walk tall. Extension exercises x 15 times x twice daily - lying on tummy, take left arm up for 3 seconds, then bring it down, right arm up for 3 seconds, bring down. Bring right leg up, hold for 3 seconds, bring it down. Then right leg up and hold for 3 seconds and bring it down. Repeat twice a day- 10 times.

lybrate-user, TSH value of 10.55 shows you have overt hypothyroidism and it needs to be treated right away with appropriate dose of thyroxine. There is no other option. Plus you wil have to exercise regularly so that normal weight is maintained. Thanks.

Walk for a kilometer rather than avoiding banana. For diabetic patients fiber and protein rich food is advisable and daily exercise is must. So take care of these things sir.

Mr. Lybrate-user, if blood sugar levels are mentioned, then there is no need for starting any treatment for diabetes, because it is called as pre-diabetes. (fasting above 108 to 125 mg and pp 141 to 199 mg / 100 ml) or also known as impaired glucose tolerance (igt). There is no treatment recommended in this situation. But a strict diet control and regular exercise is a must. Also avoiding alcohol and smoking will help in delaying diabetes. If you have any doubts please do come back. Thanks for the question.
