Hello lybrate-user. Yes, you can take the same dosage for both 40IU and 100IU insulin. However, you need to make sure that you use a 40IU compatible syringe for 40IU insulin and 100IU compatible one for 100IU syringe.

Hi lybrate-user, The dose of Eltroxin you are taking is much more than what you require. Reduce your dosage to 75 mcg and recheck your thyroid function after 6-8 weeks hope this helps.

Hello, I am a Diabetic patient and I would like to know the difference between Insugen 50/50 100iu and Insugen 50/50 40iu? Can I use 40iu instead of 40iu?

Hello lybrate-user. The difference between 40 and 100 IU is the insulin concentration per ml. The higher the number (e.g. 300IU) the higher the concentration. Ie. 1 ml of 40 IU contains 40U, 100IU contains 100U and 300 contains 300U. All you need to do is make sure your insulin delivery system is compatible. You get different syringes for 40 and 100IU insulin. Hope this helps.

Hi lybrate-user, Yes, you can go any time through the day for a walk. But make sure that you give a 2 hour gap after major meals (breakfast/lunch/dinner)

Hi lybrate-user, What your mom is suffering from is called Diabetic Neuropathy. She needs to be on medications like pregabalin or gabapentin for the same. Please note, that the above drugs can cause giddiness/dizziness in some patients.

Hi lybrate-user, there are medications to treat diabetes that can also help reduce your weight to a certain extent. However, they are expensive and they do have some side-effects like nausea and gastritis. Its called GLP-1 RA. They are injectables. I have used it in quite a few patients of mine and most of them have shown great results.

Hello Mr. lybrate-user. Assuming you have diabetes for a while now, like you rightly said, you have diabetic neuropathy. This is a treatable complication of diabetes. However, symptomatic relief varies from patient to patient. Depending on the response, you may require multiple medications to help you. Drugs like pregabalin and gabapentin are used for managing DPN. They however, may cause some giddiness and drowsiness in some patients. It's also best if you wear footwear like sandles or shoes through the day when ever you walk. Hope this helps.

Hi Mr. lybrate-user, With your above results, looks like you have Pre-Diabetes (assuming that you previously were not diagnosed with diabetes and are not on any medications for diabetes). Hence, I'd suggest you to do diet control and regular exercise. Also, keep monitoring your sugars at least once in 6 months (preferably OGTT) Hope this helped.

Hi lybrate-user, Unfortunately your father needs a physical workup before being prescribed medications. There is little we can do on a computer. However, if you would like to know how good is his diabetes control, you can get some blood workup done Fasting Blood sugar; Post Prandial Blood sugar; HbA1c; Renal Function Test; Lipid Profile; PSA; Urine Complete; Microalbumin and an ECG. The above are the most essential investigations. There are plenty more that can be suggested.
