Mr. Lybrate-user, yes that is right. To diagnose diabetes either fbs has to be equal to or more than 126 mg & pp equal to or more than 200 mg / 100 ml. So what is your query? values between 108 to 125 mg (impaired fasting glucose), pp 141 to 199 mg (impaired glucose tolerance, igt) which also is called as pre-diabetes. Thanks.

Mr. lybrate-user, Corn flakes are purely refined carbohydrate, hence will get absorbed rapidly and can increase blood glucose rapidly. Since there are plenty of calories in it, weight increase can definitely occur. For a person with diabetes, corn flakes are better avoided. Thanks.

For diabetes follow a diet low in carbohydrate, low in salt, low in fat and high in fibre. Avoid bakery products. Avoid too much rice and potato. Avoid fried stuff. Avoid chocolate, cakes, ice cream, soft drinks and fruit juices. Eat lots of vegetables. Walk for at least 30 minutes a day for 5 days in a week. Medicine and insulin will work better if you follow diet and exercise.

Please control your diet. Avoid all sugars. Cut the salt content. Please do at least 20 min of exercise a day. It can be simple walking or yoga or the playing outdoor games. Do your fasting and pp sugars depending upon which medicines may be prescribed. Most importantly, please keep smiling to keep your stress at bay.

Yes your tsh is higher than the upper limit hence, to meet the thyroxine hormone need of your body those tablets have to be taken and that too for life. Dosage has to decided by the doctor, you may start with 50 mcg per day. Take it on empty stomach and nothing to be taken for 2 hours after that.

Lybrate-userji, tsh level is lower than normal, but does she have any symptoms showing there is excess of thyroxine activity? if so then thyroxine dose can be reduced by about 12.5 mcg, to 87.5 mcg per day and then check tsh level after 4 to 6 weeks. If levels have come up continue the same dose.

Dear Dr. S
My blood glucose is 110 fasting and about 140 random. Please tell me what is safe levels. If I am diabetic...
Mr. lybrate-user, Following are the criteria to decide if some one has normal blood glucose or not: 1) Normal: Fasting 70 to 110 mg, PP <140 mg & HbA1c% <5.9. 2) Pre-diabetes: FBS:108 to 125 mg, PP 141 to 199 mg /100 ml & HbA1c% 5.9 to 6.4.3) Diabetes: FBS: 126 mg and above, PP 200 mg and above, HbA1c% 6.5 and above. If some one is in pre-diabetes stage, then adapting a modified lifestyle will help in keeping blood glucose under control. What it means is to exercise regularly for over 1 hour a day, maintain normal weight and BMI (<23 kgs/M2) and avoid sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries, bakery items and those foods made from maida. Consume good deal of green leafy vegetables, salads and fruits. Use whole grain products. Refrain from alcohol and smoking. By following this one can prevent progression to diabetes or postpone it. Thanks.

Can I know that what is sugar blood pressure and heart attack I can understand this matters please help.

Diploma in Obstetrics & Gynaecology, MBBS
General Physician, Delhi
Can I know that what is sugar blood pressure and heart attack I can understand this matters please help.
Blood has sugar in it to give us energy to live, if it exceeds certain levels, it is diabetes due to type 1 or type 2. Blood pressure is pressure with which blood runs in blood vessels, if it runs too fast because there are obstructions in vessels or there is a kind of kidney disease present, pressure becomes high and it is called high bp, heart attack is when blood supply to heart muscle is affected due to blockages in its blood vessels, heart tissue gets damaged and it is called heart attack.

I am 29 year old and my back is painful in the morning (spine) but after taking bath it reduces pain, year ago my knee and hip was painful doctor told me that your uric acid level is increase he prescribed mi gout check, pan 40 for 4 month but from last 3 months my back is so painful.My uric acid level is increases.

Dietitian/Nutritionist, Mumbai
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.

Ldl >180 suggests high risk for coronary artery disease. Hdl is good cholesterol and <40 also suggests cad risk. I think you should consult any physician for starting statins therapy. Recheck lipid profile after 3 months. Good diet and regular physical exercise will also help in hdl improvement.
