Lybrate-user, I think I answered a similar query by you. However, I am clarifying the doubt further. Following are the criteria for diagnosing diabetes: 1) normal: fbs 70 to 110 mg, ppbs- <140 mg/100 ml, hba1c% <5.9. 2) pre-diabetes: fbs: 108 to 125 mg, pp 141 to 199 mg, hba1c% 5.9 to 6.4. 3) diabetes: fbs 126 mg and above, pp200 mg and above, hba1c%6.5 and above. So it appears you are not having frank diabetes, but likely to develop it in the near future. Your ideal body weight should be about 50 kgs (height in cms - 100 x 0.9= ideal body weight). Current bmi28.75 kgs/m2 shows over weight. Hence, if you reduce weight by even 5 to 8%, sugar levels will return to normal and chances of becoming diabetic will recede. If you have any doubts please come back in a private conversation. Thanks.

Mr Anurag, If you have high TSH values, which means presence of hypothyroidism. In this condition there a deficiency of hormone thyroxine secreted by thyroid gland. Thyroxine is an important hormone, required for brain development and functioning, plus essential for every single metabolic activity that goes on in the body. So in this situation we have to supply thyroxine from outside, hence treatment with Thyroxine tablet has to be continued for life time. If you stop it, then all the symptoms of hypothyroidism will come back plus it can lead to serous consequences. Along with medication you have to avoid soyabeans and soya containing products, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, radish, mustard, peanuts and coffee. Consume more green leafy vegetables, fruits, sea foods, low fat milk products. Use whole grain flour for making chapati and roti. But please do not think of stopping thyroxine tablets.

General Physician,
Looks like you are having diabetes mellitus. Get an HBA1c to confirm. And take the report to a physician, who could start you on medications. Till then avoid sugars contains food and drinks and do light excercise like walking.

My friend has diabetes since 1 year and he is only 19 years old what can I do to cure his blood sugar?

My friend has diabetes since 1 year and he is only 19 years old what can I do to cure his blood sugar?
Do let me know your hba1c value? also you need to provide me your daily food intake details. There are many lifestyle and dietary guidelines that can be followed: take high fiber prescribed diet which includes soluble fibre like apple, isabgol etc. Get more physical activity. eat a balanced diet which includes whole grains and excludes all refined products like maida as prescribed. if you're overweight, diabetes prevention may hinge on weight loss. Every pound you lose can improve your health, and you may be surprised by how much. Participants in one large study who lost a modest amount of weight around 7 percent of initial body weight and exercised regularly reduced the risk of developing diabetes by almost 60 percent.

I have put about 10 kg extra in past 2 years. I have pimples and scars on my face. Also dandruff. I don't know whether the heavy hair fall is due to dandruff or over heat in my body or other problems. My menstrual period was delayed 10 days in one month. In all the other months it is normal only. I want to know that whether these all are the symptoms of thyroid. Please give me some advice.

Yes these symptoms may be due to hormonal disturbances like thyroid. But you have to confirm it by laboratory investigation. It wd be appropriate to consult your physician first.

You have mentioned that only a month back treatment for hypothyroidism has been started. Then you need to wait for a period of at least 4 to six weeks for tsh levels to come to normal. On treatment tsh should revert to 3 to 4 milli units for control of all symptoms, plus efforts to reduce weight to show any result. If tsh levels remain high then diet and exercise will not benefit.
