Dear lybrateuser, -Since your mother is a diabetic avoid giving her glucose or sugar as it will disturb the blood sugar balance, glucose can be given only if signs & symptoms of low blood sugar occur -if you want to give then give her vegetable juice, lime juice(no sugar, use sugar free),low fat milk, soup -check blood sugar & give her proper diet including fruits, vegetables, wholegrains, low fat milk & milk products, lean meats, nuts -keep meal timings fixed, give a variety of food items, should take medicine on time, also do exercise like walking, should not feel tired, 7-8 glasses of water in a day.

Nothing better than your native diet and restrict food items which contain high calory and have high glycemic index, sugar,jaggery, honey,sweets, sweet fruits etc. Prefer food with low glycemic index and which have high fibre. Exercise regularly.

Dear lybrate user, you should immediately stop the medication for blood pressure. Regarding your problem of diabetes I fear that you may have become insulin dependant diabetic patient. In that case you should go for insulin injection. However, you could try homoeopathic uranium nit q, 30 drops, thrice daily, after meals, in a cup of water for one month. Check your blood sugar level after one month of medication. If you do not observe any decrease in your blood sugar level then you should go for insulin injection.

Mr. Lybrate-user chandra, the blood sugar levels mentioned are fairly good, particularly fasting. Pp should come down a bit more for good control. From now on you have to see that blood sugar levels are maintained with in expected levels (fasting near 100 mg and pp 150 to 160 mg). Take prescribed medication regularly, without missing a dose. Exercise daily for at least 1 hour and strive to maintain near normal weight. Take a restricted diet giving exact calories based on ideal body weight (60 kgs). You a bmi of 34.375 kg/m2 which signifies you have grade 1 obesity. Reducing weight it self will help in better blood sugar control. Diabetes is condition that will remain for life time and keeping it under control is essential to prevent or postpone long term complication.

take medicines to reduced thyroid.Standard treatment for hypothyroidism involves daily use of the synthetic thyroid hormone levothyroxine (Levothroid, Synthroid, others). This oral medication restores adequate hormone levels, reversing the signs and symptoms of hypothyroidism. One to two weeks after starting treatment, you'll notice that you're feeling less fatigued. The medication also gradually lowers cholesterol levels elevated by the disease and may reverse any weight gain. Treatment with levothyroxine is usually lifelong, but because the dosage you need may change, your doctor is likely to check your TSH level every year. Determining proper dosage may take time To determine the right dosage of levothyroxine initially, your doctor generally checks your level of TSH after two to three months. Excessive amounts of the hormone can cause side effects, such as: Increased appetite Insomnia Heart palpitations Shakiness If you have coronary artery disease or severe hypothyroidism, your doctor may start treatment with a smaller amount of medication and gradually increase the dosage. Progressive hormone replacement allows your heart to adjust to the increase in metabolism. Levothyroxine causes virtually no side effects when used in the appropriate dose and is relatively inexpensive. If you change brands, let your doctor know to ensure you're still receiving the right dosage. Also, don't skip doses or stop taking the drug because you're feeling better. If you do, the symptoms of hypothyroidism will gradually return. Proper absorption of levothyroxine Certain medications, supplements and even some foods may affect your ability to absorb levothyroxine. Talk to your doctor if you eat large amounts of soy products or a high-fiber diet or you take other medications, such as: Iron supplements Cholestyramine Aluminum hydroxide, which is found in some antacids Calcium supplements If you have subclinical hypothyroidism, discuss treatment with your doctor. For a relatively mild increase in TSH, you probably won't benefit from thyroid hormone therapy, and treatment could even be harmful. On the other hand, for a higher TSH level, thyroid hormones may improve your cholesterol level, the pumping ability of your heart and your energy level.
