Hba1c above 6.4 is diabetes. You have family history as well. With diet restrictions and regular exercise like 40 min daily walking you can able to control your blood sugar. Repeat test again after 3 months if it is high start with low dose metformin.

I'M 23. I read that pcos causes diabetes? I had a scan in sept 2015 that showed polycystic appearing ovaries. I have been having problems like period cycle lasting 3 days instead of normal 5 days since 2 cycles. Bitter sour taste in mouth. Acne on forehead since a month (I never had acne problems even as a teenager). Etc. My thyroid test (done in Aug 2015) is normal. So could diabetes be the cause of my problem?

Hello, pcos is seen more often in over weight or obese females. Obesity and inactivity also are responsible for causing diabetes t2 in many individuals. Pcos does not lead to diabetes. If you have any doubt get fasting and after food sugar testing done to find out.

I am diabetic. A1c as 7.5. 65 yrs. My Alkaline Phosphate is high. Please advise impact of High Alkaline Phosphate.

I am diabetic. A1c as 7.5. 65 yrs. My Alkaline Phosphate is high.
Please advise impact of High Alkaline Phosphate.
Alkaline phosphatase is an enzyme found throughout the body. However, it tends to be most concentrated in the liver, the bile ducts, bones and placenta. Diseases that damage and destroy the cells of these organs lead to the release of alkaline phosphatase into the blood, which raises the blood level of alkaline phosphatase. Total ALP elevation due to the hepatic fraction is a sensitive indicator of intra- or extrahepatic cholestasis. ALP measurement at up to 2 times ULN is found in hepatitis and heavy alcohol consumption. Marked ALP elevation is usually noted with extrahepatic biliary obstruction, primary biliary cirrhosis, and infiltrative processes such as neoplasm. Less dramatic ALP elevation can be seen in infectious mononucleosis, bile duct obstruction, hepatitis, heavy alcohol consumption, and fatty liver.

Mr. Lybrate-user, I think earlier question is also your only about low lipids. In that you had not mentioned about hypothyroidism. This is the main reason for weight gain and probably affecting lipids along with statin. At tsh 11.6 you have hypothyroidism, which needs to be treated right away. With regards.

Dear, you do not need to take any medicines at this point. Do regular physical exercise, morning walk for at least 30 mins for at least 4 days a week. While having meal, restrict amount of carbohydrates ( rice, sugar, mangoes, banana ) and fat ( oils, butter, mutton) and take plenty of green leafy vegetables. Then recheck your fbs, ppbs and hba1c level after 1 and half month and inform me. Wish you good health. Dr. S. Modak

lybrate-user, If hypothyroidism is in control (TSH between 3 to 4 mU/L), then efforts to control weight can be successful. Only way to reduce weight is exercise and take a restricted diet. Your caloric intake has to be based on ideal body weight (60 kgs X 25 calories = 1500 cals, since you want to reduce weight, then the intake has to be cut by another 500 cals per day. So daily food intake should give only 1000 calories. Plus at least 45 minutes of walking also is required. Without this there is no other way to reduce weight. Thanks.

The symptoms that you are experiencing is not related to Thyroid problem. Cough after exercise can be due to what we call as air way hypersensitivity. 2nd possibility is that you may be having higher blood pressure. 3 rd you may need a thorough cardiac evaluation in particular TMT. Take care.

I am having joint pains, my uric acid level is high. How to cure and control uric acid level.
High uric acid alone is usually not the only reason for multiple joint pains. Conversely, 90% of multiple joint pains are not because of high uric acid levels.

, If hypothyroidism is well controlled with TSH levels between 3 to 4 mU/L, then efforts to reduce weight are successful. So please look at the TSH level and not as desired, then thyroxine dose may have to be increased. Plus you will have to control dietary intake based on ideal body weight and exercise daily for at least 1 hour. Thanks.

Mr. lybrate-user, Diabetes is well controlled mainly because of drugs that you are taking. Therefore, the present treatment has to be continued along with that you will have to exercise regularly, plus take a properly planned and restricted diet that provides exact amount of calories based on ideal body weight (65 kgs), extent of daily exercise and sugar levels. Thanks.
