Mr. Lybrate-user, if diabetes is well controlled then invariably the person feels fine, all symptoms are in control. Please give me the details like fasting, pp sugar levels, hba1c%, present drugs with dosage, diet pattern and extent of daily exercise that he does. In diabetes apart from taking correct drugs it is very essential to have a restricted diet that provides exact calories based on ideal body weight and regular exercise of at least 1 hour a day is a must. This helps in reducing resistance to insulin and improves its action and gives a feeling of well being. If you have any doubts please come in a private conversation, where I will be able to guide better.

Me having high uric acid which has resulted sever pain in legs with swollen feet and unable to walk. Request suggest ...
Tips for increased uric acid levels and gout • Watch your weight. Try to lose weight slowly. • Eat fresh fruit, vegetables, whole wheat products and some pulses (high in purine) every day. • Enjoy low-fat milk and dairy products daily. • Keep an eye on the purine content of food. Avoid offal, shellfish and crustaceans and tinned fish such as sardines in oil. • Eat no more than 100g of meat, sausages, fish and poultry a day. • Drink alcohol only occasionally, as it affects the elimination of uric acid. • Eat low-fat food. The consumption of high-fat foods encourages weight gain. • Drink at least two litres of low-calorie fluids a day. Recommended fluids are water, tea and fruit juice. Please consult a qualified dietician for more details regarding your diet plan. They will be able to clarify any questions you have and healthily and effectively reduce your values Homoeopathic medicine URTICA URENS Q ( Dr Reckeweg) Drink 15 drops in 20 ml fresh water 3 times daily for 2 months and consult me thereafter with latest blood reports regarding URIC ACID.

Diabetics and exercise.
Do exercise 1-3 hours after meal when blood sugar level are on higher side and less chances of hypoglycaemia.
Avoid exercise if blood sugar more than 250 mg
If over weight and diabetics,then consult doctor first before taking any fitness regimen/go far stress test.
Carry sugar tab.With you.
Carry a card showing you are diabetic and what medicine and your contact add.
You are more likely to have hypoglycaemia if on insulin

Mr. lybrate-user, Your blood glucose levels show that you are in pre-diabetes stage. At this stage, there is no treatment required. What is needed is adapting a changed lifestyle as being done by you. You will have to exercise daily so that weight is maintained near 70 kgs, waist line should be <85 cms. Take healthy balanced diet. Avoid sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries and other bakery items, sweetened aerated drinks, fructose corn syrup containing food products and highly processed foods. Consume good deal of green leafy vegetables, salads and fruits. Avoid items made of maida and other refined flours. Refrain from smoking and alcohol. Thanks.

I am 42 years old. Taking thyrox 25 since last 4 yrs. Everyafter 6 months I am testing blood. T3, T4 was normal but TSH was little more than normal. But last tm it was 8.92.so I took thyrox 50. After 3 months, nw I chest it is showing little less than the normal level. Should I stop it or continue with thyrox 25. Pl.suggest.?

Jayashriji, Ideally when you are on treatment for hypothyroidism with adequate dosage of thyroxine then TSH should be maintained around 3 to 4 mU/L, then most of the symptoms are well in control. If the TSH levels go up, then the symptoms invariably reappear. Changing the dosage on your own is not good. It is better to take your doctor's opinion. Further there is no mention of current TSH level to give any opinion.Thanks

Avoid beetroot in that and have that before 3 hrs of bed. Also start taking honey and lemon water to start your day. Follow a low calorie and 60gms protein diet chart. Also start taking a plate of salad before 20 mins of your lunch. Consult privately for detailed diet chart with me.
