Mr. Lybrate-user, if blood sugar is well controlled, you can take it for a considerably long time. However, a periodic check up of blood sugar is always needed. To achiev good control fasting should be close to 100 mg, pp 150 to 160 mg, hba1c<7.%. Thanks for the question.

Lybrate-user, if fasting blood glucose is 126 mg and more, ppbs 200 mg and more and hba1c % 6.5 and more, then it is confirmed diabetes. Only in that case drug treatment is required. So get his current complete blood check up for diabetes. If above criteria are met, then treatment is needed. Otherwise diet control and regular exercise as well as weight control will help. But it appears he is over weight. His ideal body weight should be about 64 kgs. Thanks.

Helenji, If you are saying there is a swelling in the are of thyroid gland, then it may be associated with thyroid gland. It is better if you get a thyroid assay done, that will help in finding out whether there is any problem in your thyroid gland. Later you can post those reports and I will be able to guide.

How to reduce thyroid and how to maintain the thyroid level in body and what are the symptoms of it.

How to reduce thyroid and how to maintain the thyroid level in body and what are the symptoms of it.
Hi  First: medicines are mandatory.  Otherwise ypu might have weight gain, muscle ache, sleep and anxiety issues as well as gynaecological and cardiac issues later. You need to get an USG neck done  and an FNAC USG guided of thyroid gland. FT3/FT4/TSH  If you have already done these tests Share on Lybrate I can help you better. Any history of alcohol  intake /fatty food /sugary food How much exercise do you get done every day? Ideally you should be doing a good mix of cardio, weights and crossfit  exercises to keep you healthy Together  with a balanced diet with optimum  healthy fat protein and carbs.  Avoid  deep fried fatty food and fast food. No soft drinks /sugary drinks. I am outlining  food you should avoid or restrict in Hypothyroidism. It's important  you maintain  your body weight exercise regularly. Weight gain increases thyroid hormone requirements.  Avoid cruciferous   group of veggies  like cabbage and broccoli. Avoid soya bean in all forms. No soya, nugget, chunk, tofu or milk. Limit their intake: Brussels sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower, kale, turnips, and bok choy. Cooking the vegetables can reduce the effect that cruciferous vegetables have on the thyroid gland. Limiting your intake to 5 ounces a day appears to have no adverse effect on thyroid function. Decrease gluten  intake from processed  food. Always try whole grain varieties of cereals which is rich in fibres and help improve  bowels (Take your thyroid replacement  medicine several hours before or several hours after food rich in fibres. Otherwise problem  with absorption  of hormone. 20 to 35 gram of fibres daily from all sources. Avoid excessive fatty (deep fried) and sugary food as hypothyroidism  causes your metabolism  to slow down &weight gain. Avoid highly salted food, chips, pickles, sauces as they Contain  large amount of sodium. Hypothyroidism  puts you at risk of high BP and excess sodium in salt aggravates Coffee  in excess. And coffee with thyroid hormone  replacement  can prevent absorption.  Alcohol. It is toxic to thyroid gland and prevents  hormone production and absorption. The problems of hypothyroidism  gets better with medicines, diet and exercise.  You will start  Better as the levels of your hormone normalises.  Initially  you need to do the TSH test every 6 weeks till normal TSH then every 3 months Diet /EXERCISE/Medicines/Sleep/meditation: 5 pillars of health needed to live the healthiest Hope this helps Take care

My fasting blood sugar is 125 and after food 2 hours 180. Which medicine are best for me.

My fasting blood sugar is 125 and after food 2 hours 180. Which medicine are best for me.
Mr Subhashish, The blood sugar levels mentioned are just below the diagnostic levels. Diabetes is confirmed if fasting is >126 mg/100 ml and PP is >200 mg / ml. If you are not on any medication then these levels are called as a prediabetic condition or Impaired Glucose Tolerance (IGT). If you adapt a strict changed life style can still remain free of diabetes or delay the onset. Regular exercise and proper diet, avoiding alcohol and smoking can be very helpful.

Quadriceps exercises- lie straight, make a towel role and put it under the knee, press the keen against the role, hold it for 20 secs. Repeat 20 times twice a day. This will help relieve some pain. Core strengthening exercise- straight leg raised with toes turned outward, repeat 10 times, twice a day.

Loose your extra weight. Moongdal sprouts are good for diabetes and obesity and thyroid. Take lukewarm water with half spoon methidana powder in the morning. You can take coconut water. Except fruit juice you should eat complete fruit because it contain fibers which is good for a diabetics. Chapattis of bran flour (unrefined) is given to diabetes patients and to increase nutrition value add gram flour. In breakfast -vegetable daliya, poha, upma, oats, cornflacks you can take it. And one cup skim milk without sugar.
