Dear lybrate-user, Following are the treatment goals. Fasting blood sugar- between 70 and 130 mg/dl Post parandial blood sugar- less than 180 mg/dl Hba1c – less than 7. So yes, your sugar levels do seem tobe fine.

As per your reports you are a poorly controlled diabetic and hypothyroid patient. You need to be on strict diabetic diet, reduce your weight by regular exercise to around 75 kg that is your ideal weight accoding to your height and visit your physician for addition of diabetes medication and change in dose of thyronorm.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. When on treatment with levothyroxine TSH should be maintained <3 mU/L to be totally free from all the symptoms of hypothyroidism. Please tell me whether your weight was same before being diagnosed with hypothyroidism? Because at the time of diagnosis TSH was 100 mU/L, means you must have been having the condition for a long time and that has contributed for excess weight gain. Now you have a BMI of 31.66 kgs/M2 (normal <23 kgs). The dosage that you were taking it self appears less that that was needed. Only soy beans and soy containing products need to be avoided. Plus there has to be a restricted diet giving calories based on your ideal body weight (55 kgs). Plus you will have to exercise regularly for at least one hour every day. Dosage of thyroxine has to be properly calculated. Thanks.

Hi looking at your height and weight, you are having grade 1 obesity, with bmi of 30.35 kgs/m2. The reason for this could be hypothyroidism, as it increases weight. Unless well controlled efforts to reduce weigh will not be fruitful. As regards the treament with thyroxine, yes it has to be started immediately. Aim is to bring down tsh levels to around 3 to 4 milli units/l. This is a condition occurring due to deficiency of hormone thyroxine produced by thyroid gland. Since that hormone is required daily for multiple metabolic functions and functioning of brain, replacement has to be continued for life time. It is very safe treatment. Thanks for the question.

YOu have to check your diabetes status now and inform me. 5 Ways to Fight Depression If you feel depressed, it's best to do something about it — depression doesn't just go away on its own. In addition to getting help from a doctor or therapist, here are 5 things you can do to feel better. 1.Exercise. Take a 15- to 30-minute brisk walk every day — or dance, jog, or bike if you prefer. People who are depressed may not feel much like being active. In addition to getting aerobic exercise, some yoga poses can help relieve feelings of depression. Two other aspects of yoga — breathing exercises and meditation — can also help people with depression feel better. 2.Nurture yourself with good nutrition. Depression can affect appetite. One person may not feel like eating at all, but another might overeat. Proper nutrition can influence a person's mood and energy. So eat plenty of fruits and vegetables and get regular meals (even if you don't feel hungry, try to eat something light, like a piece of fruit, to keep you going). 3.Identify troubles, but don't dwell on them. Try to identify any situations that have contributed to your depression. When you know what's got you feeling blue and why, talk about it with a caring friend. Talking is a way to release the feelings and to receive some understanding. 4. Express yourself. With depression, a person's creativity and sense of fun may seem blocked. Exercise your imagination (painting, drawing, doodling, sewing, writing, dancing, composing music, etc.) and you not only get those creative juices flowing, you also loosen up some positive emotions. Take time to play with a friend or a pet, or do something fun for yourself. Find something to laugh about — a funny movie, perhaps. Laughter helps lighten your mood. 5.Try to notice good things. Depression affects a person's thoughts, making everything seem dismal, negative, and hopeless. If depression has you noticing only the negative, make an effort to notice the good things in life. Try to notice one thing, then try to think of one more. Consider your strengths, gifts, or blessings. Most of all, don't forget to be patient with yourself. Depression takes time to heal. If you are happy with these answers please click on "useful” link so that I can know my efforts are not wasted. If you want more clarifications please ask me directly and not in open questions session.

Planning a Baby

Planning a Baby

Becoming a parent is the most cherishing moment in a couple's life, hence it is important to ensure that both the mother and the baby are healthy. In today's world lot of factors like environmental, socio-economic, lifestyle associated, and addictions such as smoking and alcohol affect the health of both men and women. If the parents have ill health or unhealthy lifestyle practices, the same can complicate matters and also cause infertility.

Prenatal Counseling: Today's life, especially in the metro cities, is fast and becoming more stressful. Pregnancy is a period when the health of the baby is directly dependent on the health of the mother and father. Also during the early phase of pregnancy the development of a baby inside the womb is very rapid and is the base for its future. Preconception counseling helps parents to understand and identify the different factors affecting the growth of the baby along with the modifications or complete illumination of these factors (if possible) to maintain the healthy development of the baby and the health of the mother as well.

Hence preconception counseling is a good initiative towards a healthy outcome. It not only guides the parent about the healthy lifestyle but also helps to find out the genetic factors causing any malformation or medical conditions, affecting the baby- the mother- the whole family through an emotional, psychological, social and economic point of view. It helps the parents to understand the condition, its future consequences so that they are able to take informed decisions.

The Prenatal Counseling Guides About:

  • The right height and weight as per the BMI. This highlights the right attributes needed for conception
  • Blood pressure to check any abnormality
  • Medical history - whether they have had any medical treatment for any particular disease. If yes, then what are the medications? They check whether these are safe medications for pregnancy or not. The doctors then alter them accordingly to avoid any harmful effect on pregnancy.
  • Abdominal & pelvic examination to rule out any abnormality
  • Rubella screening- It is important to have a vaccine. As Rubella causes abortions or congenital birth defects in baby.
  • Varicella screening to assess any chances of future abnormalities
  • Depression screening as its medication are harmful for the baby & also if mother is not prepared for pregnancy then the outcome is usually affected.
  • Blood tests like urine analysis, complete blood count, sugar, blood group & tests for -STDS (HIV, VDRL), Hepatitis B, thyroid dysfunction
  • The importance of well-balanced nutritional diet and how to opt it
  • The change or modification in the lifestyle to reduce stress
  • Exercise and its benefits
  • Any family history of any disease like Haemophilia and the steps towards it
  • Quitting alcohol and smoking as they have adverse effects on the growth and development of baby
  • Any kind of drug addiction having ill effect on the health of both mother and baby

Thus prenatal counseling in planning a baby is a step towards ensuring a healthy outcome.

He should have sugar free diet, also avoid honey and jagary (Gur. He should avoid sweets and sweet fruits like grapes, banana,mangoes and cheeku. Other fruits should not be taken in large amount as they will increase glucose as well as potassium level which are not good for a diabetic patient whose kidneys are affected.
