Fasting 140-160 is high and you might need to increase your medication. Get your hba1c report done. It is last 3 months sugar average and more reliable test. Hair loss could be due to several other reasons and not related to diabetes.

You can take Nutrient-rich foods that improve your health may also benefit your thyroid gland, antioxidant-rich fruits and vegetables more plenty of water: Blueberries, tomatoes, bell peppers, and other foods rich in antioxidants can improve overall health and benefit the thyroid gland. Eating foods high in B vitamins, like whole grains, may also help. Selenium: Tiny amounts of selenium are needed for enzymes that make thyroid hormones to work properly. Eating selenium-rich foods, such as sunflower seeds or Brazil nuts, can be beneficial. Tyrosine: This amino acid is used by the thyroid gland to produce T3 and T4. Taking a supplement may help,

Mr. Lybrate-user, tagara, is supposed to be helping in calming down the mind and also inducing sleep. It seems to be fairly safe, from various reports that are published. But my advise is better not to go in for any medication for sleep induction. If one exercises regularly for over 1 hour a day, maintains blood glucose levels well with in normal limits, practices pranayam and simple relaxation techniques, then there is no need for such medications. Thanks.

Mr Vishwanathan, She does not have hypothyroidism now. She may be having subclinical hypothyroidism. There is no need for any treatment now. She should exercise regularly to maintain normal weight, avoid soy beans, soy containing products, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, radish, peanuts, mustard and coffee. Use whole grain flour for making roti and chapati. Consume good deal of green leafy vegetables and fruits. Avoid high fat foods. This should help her. Get TSH levels checked after 6 months.

Is contraceptive pills reduce the ova formation? Long time intake reduces fertility about 20-25 years.

MD-Ayurveda, Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)
Sexologist, Haldwani
Hello- a woman becomes pregnant when an egg released from her ovary (the organ that holds her eggs) is fertilized by a man's sperm. The fertilized egg attaches to the inside of a woman's womb (uterus), where it receives nourishment and develops into a baby. Hormones in the woman's body control the release of the egg from the ovary -- called ovulation -- and prepare the body to accept the fertilized egg. Related content slideshow your birth control options start hormonal contraceptives (the pill, the patch, and the vaginal ring) all contain a small amount of man-made estrogen and progestin hormones. These hormones work to inhibit the body's natural cyclical hormones to prevent pregnancy. Pregnancy is prevented by a combination of factors. The hormonal contraceptive usually stops the body from ovulating. Hormonal contraceptives also change the cervical mucus to make it difficult for the sperm to go through the cervix and find an egg. Hormonal contraceptives can also prevent pregnancy by changing the lining of the womb so it's unlikely the fertilized egg will be implanted. Another option for hormonal contraceptives is the extended-cycle pill, such as seasonale, which was the first one to be approved. Seasonale contains the same hormones as other birth control pills, but the hormones are taken in a longer cycle. That reduces the number of menstrual periods from 13 periods a year to only four a year. That means a woman who takes this pill will menstruate only once each season. Seasonale contains the same combination of two hormones that are commonly used in other hormonal contraceptives. But the pill is taken continuously for 12 weeks followed by one week of inactive pills, which results in a menstrual cycle. Other extended-cycle pills, such as seasonique and loseasonique use a different configuration of hormones. Both of these pills use estrogen in the final week, with loseasonique providing a lower dose option.

Mr. lybrate-user, The drug mentioned can be given to her, as an additional compound and to help improve blood glucose control. If it helps it good enough. But do not stop the current treatment. Because for controlling diabetes modern medicines are the only option. If it is plain Glycomet, then it helps in reducing Insulin resistance and delays carbohydrate absorption and helps reduce blood glucose level and improves insulin action. Thanks.

Mr. Lybrate-user, it is good to know you exercise regularly to keep fit. However, your blood sugar levels both show impaired glucose tolerance (igt), which also means you are prediabetic. Usually at 150 mg pp level, urine will not have any sugar. Soplease take care and do not allow the sugar levels to go up. Your bmi is 26.71 kg/m2 (normal <23 kg/m2), so there is need for weight reduction. Also get a routine examination done to check if there is any infection. Uti can cause increased frequency and feeling or retention. If there is infection get it treated.
