Sir/madam my mom have diabetes she is loosing her weight more frequently. So what to do in order to increase her weight.
Mr. lybrate-user, If blood glucose is not well controlled then it is possible that patient may be loosing weight. So please ensure that blood glucose levels are well controlled. Ideally FBS should be closer to 100 mg, PP 150 to 160 mg & HbA1c% <7. If this is done weight loss can be controlled. So treatment has to be be properly done. Thanks.

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.

My comprehensive approach for a case such as yours would be to measure all metabolic parameters and optimize them after corelating the findings to your clinical picture. My preference is to switch to compounded Thyroids that contains both T4 and T3 (Thyroxine contains only T4). I would definitely optimize your vit B12 by giving you SUBLINGUAL vit B12. Many of these meds are not available in India in local pharmacies, hence we supply these through our compounding pharmacy.

Vyashnaviji, if a lady has diabetes then chances of getting vaginal candidiasis are very high, the reason is high blood glucose leads to excretion of glucose in urine and that promotes vaginal fungal infection (caused by candida albicans) leading to white discharge.

lybrate-user, You will have to continue taking the same dose of thyroxine for some more time. Then check TSH after 6 to 8 weeks, if level is lower than the present then a small reduction in dose can be done. But the treatment has to continue for lifetime. Thanks.

Endocrinologist,
What should be done to control blood sugar level of body ?
If a person does not have diabetes (still not confirmed), but has high sugar levels then he has to follow a modified lifestyle. Meaning exercise for more than 1 h a day, avoid sweets, direct sugar, deep fried foods, fruits like mango, grapes, chikkoos and banana. Also avoid smoking and alcohol. Maintain weight near normal for his height and age.

Dear worried lybrate-user, diabetes isn't contagious at all. So don't hesitate in becoming intimate with your husband who'll be well controlled in a short time. Just see to that he hasn't got infection on penis which very common when sugar is high. It is called balanopostheitis. Ignore the name! make him exercise, give him moral support and educate yourself by accompanying him to doctor and clearing your doubts. Regards.
