Hello, Looking at weight and height this person has grade 1 obesity with a BMI of 32.74 kgs/M2. This itself is the major contributor for increased blood glucose. His ideal body weight should be 67 kgs, he carries an excess weight of 25 kgs. By brining down the weight to near normal blood glucose will come down. Fasting 127 mgg & 137 mg suggests there is diabetes. Check the HbA1c%, that will give a clear idea. SGPT is more, so alcohol has to be stopped. Taking even occasionally is also not advised. Diet should be restricted to provide calories based on ideal body weight (67 X 20 =1340 calories/day). Thanks.

Hi, Frequency of urination is due to a few reasons 1) Diabetes mellitus 2) Diabetes insipidus 3) Irritable /overactive bladder 4) urine infection 5) drinking coffee and tea (they are diuretics) 6) drinking lots of fluids I am not sure if you are experiencing any other symptoms like increased thirst, increased hunger, losing weight, burning sensation when urinating, fever, Lower abdominal pain etc. You could get a fasting and post prandial blood glucose done to rule out diabetes. A complete urine examination with microscopy will rule out any urine infection. It would also help if you could consult a physician or urologist to diagnose your problem and who can provide appropriate treatment. Thank you.

You are saying you have hypothyroidism and sugar problem but it appears you are taking only eltroxin tablets for correction of hypothyroidism. What about diabetes treatment? diabetes rarely produces any noticeable symptoms until it becomes really severe. Hypothyroidism is unlikely to add to diabetic symptoms. Basically feeling weak, tired and lethargic are the symptoms one notices.

Please suggest diet chart (for Indian) to maintain sugar level normal for a sugar patient of 57 years old.
Mr., to suggest a dietary plan, all the information like fasting, pp sugar levels hba1c%, extent of daily exercise is needed. Because diet has to be based on blood sugar levels, ideal body weight, and amount of daily exercise and present dietary habits. However, avoid sweets completely, avoid deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries, other bakery items, sweetened aerated drinks (colas), sweet corn syrup containing products, highly processed foods and high fat containing milk products. Consume more of green leafy vegetables, salads and permitted fruits (100 g a day). Use whole grain products, avoid refined flour like maida and foods made out of it. Total caloric intake should e about 1700 calories per day. Thanks for the question.

I want to know that if a person have diabetes sugar then one can eat popcorn and corn?
Corn is a very rich source of starch (carbohydrate) starches raise the level of blood sugar. So it is advisable not to eat corn if diabetic. Once in a while it can come as a treat.

This is a case of diabetes mellitus type 2, due to deficiency of insulin production probably. Insulin is a hormone which helps to metabolize sugar in our blood. Fasting blood sugar may remain normal sometimes, which does not mean that she cannot be diabetic. In your case, it is postprandial hyperglycemia which is also a feature of diabetes mellitus type 2. So, consult any endocrinologist or diabetologist very urgently. If she is left untreated at this moment, than her blood sugar may rise more. High blood sugar is very harmful heart, brain, kidney, nerves and eyes. So, maintain diabetic diet from now onward.

Alpanaji, if you have diabetes and if it is not in control, you may have to get up on a number occasions at night, which does disturb the sleep. So please let me know if blood sugar levels are in control or not? fasting should be 100 mg or there about, pp 150 to 160 mg and hba1c%<7. This plus regular exercise daily for 1 hour will definitely help you get good sleep. Taking drugs to induce sleep is never a good option.
