Hi , Your sugar is under control. For good control fasting glucose should be less than 110 and 2 hour post prandial glucose should be less than 160. HbA1C should be less than 6.5 for your age.(HbA1C gives the average blood glucose value over the past 3 months. Glucose in your blood is stuck to Haemoglobin produced by the Red blood cells) 1) Blood glucose testing should be done once every 3months when it is under control. This should include Fasting blood glucose, 2 hour post prandial blood glucose and HbA1C. 2) if the diabetes is not under control FBG and PPBG should be done more frequently - once every 3-4 weeks. But HbA1C should be repeated only once every 3 months - it is no use repeating it early as the life span of RBC ( red blood cells) is 3 months. Hope this helps you Thank you.

Lybrate-user, diabetes is a lifestyle disorder where balancing your diet along with good physical activity is a must. Eat at regular intervals of 2-3 hrs and practise 15-20 mins of yoga to reduce stress.

I have used thyroid medicine 50 mg. After 2 months my tests are normal. Shall I stop medicine or continue how much mg medicine.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
I am sure the doctor who prescribed the thyroxine tablets must have told that that treatment for hypothyroidism is a life long one. If tsh levels have returned to normal, means your current treatment is effective and needs to be continued. On treatment tsh levels should remain between 3 to 4 milli units. Then only all the symptoms are well controlled. So please do not stop the medication. It has to continue for life time.

Protect your hands. Protection is key. Wear rubber or latex gloves when you're exposed to irritants. Choose ones that are lined with cotton. The key is to wash gently. Opt for warm water -- hot water strips the skin of its natural, protecting oils. The tops of dry hands are especially parched. Some dermatologists suggest scrubbing just your palms when washing if your hands are particularly dry. Petroleum jelly (petrolatum), mineral oil, and lanolin, all of which trap water in the skin

Well with diabetes with long duration and with hba1c of 7.5 is good. But still the more you approach to make hba1c < 7, the pp blood sugar is responsible for hba1c in between 7-8 %. And thats what we are seeing, you pp is raised. My suggestion is take ppg 0.3 or stabose 0.3 thrice a day, immediately after meals.

Arpitaji, If you are on treatment with thyroxine tablets then ideally TSH value should be between 3 to 4 milli units / ml. A value of 7.1 means inadequate treatment. As regards the food you should whole grain flour for making chapati and roti, no refined flour (maida). Avoid soy beans, soy containing products, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, radish, mustard, peanuts and coffee. Consume more of green leafy vegetables, salads and fruits. Avoid high fat cheese, ghee and butter.

There is no permanent end to the hypothyroidism. She has to take medicene through out. In diet there are restrictions like cauliflower or broccoli, but don't matter much. Take the medicene and eat everything and enjoy life.

Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Nidhiji, What is the TSH level? If the level is above 10 milli units/ml, then it is confirmed hypothyroidism, if level is between 5 to 10 milli units/ml then it is subclinical condition. Plus do you experience any symptoms related to it? Please answer these queries. If confirmed hypothyroidism is there then treatment with thyroxine has to be started. Dosage will depend upon your body weight and TSH levels.

Can a diabetics person consume Dates, and if yes then what is the consumption per day?
Hello, Dates are a good source of fibre, energy, antioxidants minerals and vitamins. But it has glucose in considerable amounts too. Hence if you consume too many of them it would raise your blood glucose levels. I would suggest you can take about 3 medium sized dates in a day. Thank you.

I am 45 year old and my uric acid 8. 52. What should I eat and not eat and what precaution I should take.

There are many lifestyle and dietary guidelines that can be followed to protect against future flares or prevent gout or uric acid problems from occurring in the first instance: Maintain a high fluid intake (2-4 liters a day) Avoid alcohol Maintain a healthy body weight Eat a balanced diet Limit fish, meat and poultry intake. If attempting to lose weight, avoid low-carbohydrate diets. If carbohydrate intake is insufficient, the body is unable to burn its own fat properly, releasing substances called ketones into the bloodstream. This results in a condition called ketosis that can increase the level of uric acid in the blood. It is most important to avoid foods that are high in purines, to ensure that the levels of uric acid in the blood do not get too high. Here is a list of high-purine foods to be wary of: Beef kidneys Brains Dried beans and peas Liver Mackerel Mushrooms Lose some weight by walking or other exercise, avoid meats and get always be on a prescribed diet as prescribed by a registered dietitian. I am a registered dietitian, certified diabetes educator and a doctor, consult privately for detailed treatment plans using diet and medications.
