I'm diabetes  patient .I've  many  injuries from last year? please help me someone.
Hye, thanks for the query. You need to maintain good blood sugar levels to avoid any complications due to uncontrolled diabetes. For a diabetic it is best advised to have a diet planned as per the sugar levels, lifestyle and history. Though you can follow some guidelines - the sugar levels will fluctuate depending on what you ate or did not eat, stress levels and activity levels. You have to try and manage a balanced carb intake. Have small frequent meals. Do not fast for long hours. You have to eat 3 main and 3 mid meals. Your diet must include whole grains, seasonal fruits, vegetables, small amounts of nuts and dairy and pulses or dals or lean meats like chicken or fish and egg. Starchy vegetables need to be planned into the diet. Avoid a very heavy meal at one time. Avoid fruit juices, aerated drinks or sugarcane juice, honey, jaggery or sugar. Avoid junk foods. Exercise and stay active. Avoid exercise if sugar levels are above 250 mg/dl. Do not attempt to try out too many remedies as you could go into hypoglycaemia. Sleep well. It's all a matter of discipline.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Your thyroid test results are normal. There is no reason to worry. It is important to control your blood glucose effectively with FBG < 100 mg, PP 150 to 160 mg & HbA1c% <6.8. That will help in keeping fit and fine. Thanks.

lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. In your information there is no mention about actual hormone levels including TSH. Unless those details are given, there is no way to give any opinion. Plus also mention about what is the treatment or the drug being taken with dosage. Then only I will be able to guide. Thanks.

How to control thyroid, is there any natural treatment for this. I do not want to use medicine no more.

Mr. If you are referring to hypothyroidism, then please understand it is a condition occurring due to deficiency of thyroxine hormone produced by thyroid gland. This is an important hormone required daily for development and functioning of brain, plus a great number of metabolic activities in the body. So it needs to be made available every day, through a tablet. Hence the treatment has to go on for life time. There is no other option.

Dear lybrate-user, Kidney disease needs special dietary attention to maintain creatinine, potasium, sodium and phosphorus levels. Constipation and loose stools may be due to irritable bowel syndrome. All the issues an be well managed with proper dietary intake. It has to be personalized depending on her condition. I'm a renal dietitian, feel free to approach me for the wholistic diet plan. Warm Regards,

Hello Mam, You both take your medication for thyroid regularly and whenever you want to concieve, just go to a nearby gynecologist and perform some basic tests and thyroid function test too. Till then eat healthy, sleep well and do exercise daily.

If you are not taking any medicine you do not need medicines for this level of blood sugar. Avoid oily and high carb food. Increase some proteins and fiber in your diet.

Hello doctor I had TSH level of 4.93 on 06/02/16 (during my first trimester). I started taking 100 mcg of thyronorm daily since today ie. On 23/10.16 (for about 1 and half months). When should I change my dose? I am worried if my baby is unnecessarily exposed to high dose of thyroxine? Please suggest.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Hello, madam, in pregnancy, tsh level should be maintained around 2 milli units/ml. Taking thyroxine 100mcg, no way burdens the baby. In fact it is recommended that in the first trimester tsh should be <2 milli units, for better fetal growth and maintenance of pregnancy.

I have recently checked g. T. T test with 75gr. Reading values are fasting-100, after takeing glucose, 30 mins-212, 1 hour(60 min)'-162, 1and half hour(90min)-154, 2 hours(120min)-140, 2and half hour(150min)-120. After this reading i am diabetic or non diabetic.

Your one value is a bit high. Others are normal. So it is difficult to comment. You are not a diabetic. It may be an impaired glucose tolerance test. Which indicates early diabetes. But to be very sure repeat the test after 1 month.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. If diabetes is not well controlled then erectile dysfunction is quite likely to occur. So most important is to have a very strict blood glucose control with fasting <100 mg, PP 150 to 160 mg & HbA1c%<6.8. Plus you may consider using drugs like PDE Inhibitors just before (1 hour before) the act. This might help in better erection. Thanks.
