Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Diabetes mellitus does lead to erectile dysfunction, even when blood glucose control is good. If the control is bad then the affection is much earlier. Hence primary need is to have a strict blood glucose control. First and foremost id to control your blood glucose levels, fasting should be closer to 100 mg, PP :150 to 160 mg & HbA1c%<6.8. Then you may consider using PDE-V inhibitor jsut before the expected sexual contact. Thanks.

This is a case of diabetes mellitus type 2, due to deficiency of insulin production probably. Insulin is a hormone which helps to metabolize sugar in our blood. Fasting blood sugar may remain normal sometimes, which does not mean that she cannot be diabetic. In your case, it is postprandial hyperglycemia which is also a feature of diabetes mellitus type 2. So, consult any endocrinologist or diabetologist very urgently. If she is left untreated at this moment, than her blood sugar may rise more. High blood sugar is very harmful heart, brain, kidney, nerves and eyes. So, maintain diabetic diet from now onward.

Every fruit contains natural sugaar in themm.the quantity of fruit and the form in which it is consumed affects your blood sugar.for ex Apple is low in sugars but when you have it in juice form ,it raises the sugar at a fast pace. Other fruits like banana,chickoo,mango when consumed have to be exchanged for the roti or rice taken in that particular meal. Remember to include seasonal fruits but within the allowances

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. With TSH level of 38mU/L, it is clear that her hypothyroidism is totally uncontrolled. Because of that all the symptoms are seen. TSH level has to be maintained between 3 to 4 mU/L, to be free from all the symptoms of hypothyroidism. Present dosage of throxine is not adequate, needs to be increased. Since her weight and height are not mentioned, difficult calculate the dosage. Thanks.

Hello, both the sugar levels are slightly on the higher side suggestive of igt - impaired glucose tolerance. Kindly tell me what is your height and weight. So initially we need to start with dietary modifications and repeat sugars after 1 month if they come down its fine. If sugars are persistently elevated and your bmi is high then some medications need to be started do hba1c blood test. This will show wat is our blood sugar status in previous six months, if this is elevated it will confirm diabetes. Diet: stop sweets, no potato, no beetroot. Daily 30 min walking or jogging, no grapes, banana and watermelon, rice once a day.

Follow a proper diet & exercise regimen. If you have type 1 diabetes, then you need to be on insulin life long. If you have type 2 diabetes, then probably you can be off medications.

Diabetes can occur during pregnancy called as gestational diabetes. There is no way that diabetes can come to you from your husband. If at all it is transferred from your parents to you. If diabetes is confirmed then it is necessary to control the sugar urgently by taking insulin injections only. Blood sugar should be maintained between 90 to 120 mg. This is necessary for proper development of fetus and positive outcome of pregnancy.

Herbal tea with ginger is beneficial for thyroid functioning. In fact, beverages including coffee, tea, carbonated drinks and alcohols should be avoided by patients afflicted with thyroid disorders. In its place herbal tea may be an alternative option. Application of watercress's paste on the enlarged neck is also an effective remedy.

Reduce your weight by 25 to 30 kg if possible by strict diet and exercise. Your medicine list shows you are hypertensive as well so it is better for your heart to do that. You should have a low carbohydrate diet (avoiding potatoes, rice, direct sugar etc) and eat a lot of salads for fiber and filling effect. Eat frequent small meals in place of 2 full meals
