These are normal reports. Nothing to be done. Hypoglycemia can occur due to binge drinking or taking hypoglycemic medicines by mistake. If it occurs frequently then it has to be investigated.

If depression is the main problem you should continue to be under the care of a psychiatrist regularly. Apart from medication you should have healthy life style, regular exercise like walking, relaxing techniques like deep breathing, pranayaam, etc and counselling by psychologist to get at the root of problem

Hi
This is   male 26 years old one year back sugar attacked me recently my sugar level is 168.
If the sugar level you have mentioned is without any medicine and the sample was drawn within one and half hour after meals, it is a little above the normal. If you are taking some anti diabetic drug then it is really high despite medication. Have small frequent meals. Stop direct sugar and high carbohydrate ingredients in your diet. Do regular exercises.

I am 50 year old male with thyroid levels asunder as on 2 april 2015:- t3 - 1.90 mg/ml t4 - 11.87 mg/dl tsh - 0.010 mu/ml I have been advised neomercazole (carbazimine) 5 mg. But for the last 3 months I also have severe itchy patches (thickened and scaly dark skin) in the groin area of the thigh but not on genitals, which causes a lot of itch and scratching. Smaller patches have also appeared on my neck and chin, red and itchy. Please diagnose and advise.

Dear this itchy patches may be because of some fungal infection. You can try applying candid cream twice a day and apply some talcum powder to keep the area dry. If it does not help, then you hv to visit the doctor personally.

When a sugar patient should resort to insulin. How safe it is ?

MBBS & Post Graduate course in Diabetology
Endocrinologist,
If the oral drugs are not beneficial or if the sugar levels are extra ordinarily high or during surgeries of diabetic patient, it is suggested to go with insulin. It is safe as it is approved by regulatory authorities only thing to be kept in mind is to prevent over dose/under dose/hypoglycemia complications etc

Is hypothyroidism and hashimoto same or different? If different what is difference bt these?

Is hypothyroidism and hashimoto same or different? If different what is difference bt these?
lybrate-user, Hashimoto's Thyroiditis leads to hypothyroidism. Some people may have hypothyroidism directly because of either iodine deficiency or some thing affecting the thyroid function, which causes thyroxine deficiency. HT is an autoimmune disease, which damages thyroid gland and thyroxine producing cells are destroyed leading to hypothyroidism. Ultimately there is hypothyroidism. Treatment is same. Thanks.

I am having bad body odour from 7 years. I have hyperthyroidism from more than 13 years for which I am taking medicine and recently tested, reports are normal. I could not understand what could be than. I have iron and vitamin d deficiency. Are these the causes for that. Please help me.

It could be because of excessive sweating. Deficiency of iron and vitamin d3 does not cause bad odour. Maintain personal hygiene. Consult skin specialist for further advice.

My mother is suffering from uric acid problem. Can you please tell me how to get rid off by this. Using home remedies.

General Physician,
My mother is suffering from uric acid problem. Can you please tell me how to get rid off by this. Using home remedies.
You should tell the uric acid level to guide you completely. Apple cider vinegar, cherries, lemon juice, olive oil and drinking plenty of water helps optimize uric acid filtering. It helps dilute the uric acid and stimulates the kidneys to eliminate excess amounts from the body through urine.

Mr Dharambir, If you have diabetes mellitus, (T2), then only remedy is to take regular medication, restricted diet, avoid sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods and pastries and exercise regularly. There is no cure for diabetes.

He have the starting stage of diabetes how we can cure?

Diploma in Nutrition
Dietitian/Nutritionist,
He have the starting stage of diabetes how we can cure?
Hell, please follow the doctor prescribed medicine. Which controls the diabetics and will not allow you increase. But along with medication, you need to concentrate on food also. Make sure you food must have high protein, fiber and omega-3 nutrition. For a diabetics, its good to have more protein rather than carbohydrates, which converts into glucose and may have a chance to increase the diabetes. What we suggest is the nutrigemoic protein, who certified, with 9 essential amino acids. This will help you cure your diabetics in a year time. But you will definitely have a result, if you can use protein with vitamins and minerals, fiber and omega-3 supplements,.

How to control sugar level if fasting sugar is 119.Please suggest

CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology, MBBS
Endocrinologist,
Blood sugar level 119 mg /100 ml suggests you may be prediabetic. If fasting is above 126 mg and after food is above 200 mg then it is considered as diabetes. Between 101 to 125 mg fasting is considered as fasting impaired glucose tolerance. In such situation it is better to have a modified life style meaning doing regular exercises, maintaining bmi (body mass index) closer to 23kg persquare meter. (your present bmi is 22.8 kg/sq m.) to avoid developing diabetes remain active, eat moderately and maintain your as it is now.

Can diabetes patient can eat banana, if eat what type of banana can eat, what is the quantity can eat, if eat before ...
Banana is not to be eaten by a diabetes patient. Because it is high in sugar, gets converted to glucose very rapidly. All types of bananas are to be avoided. If your blood sugar level is very strictly controlled with fasting around 100 mg, pp 150 to 160 mg/100 ml & hba1c%<6.8, then may be very occasionally one small banana may be taken. But best is to avoid. Thanks.
