Is your diabetes under control? If not, get that controlled. Your burning feet may be due to diabetic neuropathy, which effects the nerves of the feet first. Apart from good diabetes control, there are medicine which are quite useful for treating diabetic neuropathy. You should consult your physician.

Is there any particular way to taking insulin for diabetes. Are there any complications if not taken correctly.

Is there any particular way to taking insulin for diabetes. Are there any complications if not taken correctly.
Mr. Lybrate-user, insulin injections are usually taken with the help of special syringe ment for that. It has very thin needle. The injection has to be taken below the skin, in the subcutaneous layer. (in between skin and muscle). Now a day there are specially designed pens which give correct preset doses, with almost painless prick. The sites also are explained to the patient- like on the abdomen, around the umbilicus, on the lateral (outer) aspect of the thigh and on upper arm. It is always advised to shift the injection site, otherwise there may be local irritation & inflammation. Sometimes local subcutaneous fat may be affected called as lipolysis. But usually problems are very limited, particularly if correct technique is followed. Thanks.

Hello. I'm a thyroid patient from last 5 yrs. My thyroid was always in control. I took 25 mcg tablet. But frm last year it was high so I took 50 mcg. Again I went for a test. It's normal now. Should I continue with 50 mcg? And frm few days my bp is 140/90. Is it due to thyroid. I'm 23 years old. Pls help me I'm really really worried. Thank you.

Hello, Dosage of thyroxine should not be frequently changed on your own. Since you have not mentioned TSH level, it is difficult to comment. When on treatment TSH should be between 3 to 4 mU/L, then only all the symptoms are in check. BP 140/90 mm Hg is high for your age. If it remains at the same level then you need to take treatment for that. Plus reduce salt intake. Thanks.

I am a type 2 diabetic. For the last 10 yrs. Was on glycomet gp1 forte + valibo 0.3 till now. Another specialist has advised to use trajenta duo 2.5/500 + diamicron xr 60 mg. Is the to new medicine safer to use?

It is safe. The new medicine does not cause low sugar levels but it potentiates the effect of the other medicine. Hence, you should be careful to avoid low sugar levels.

Dear lybrate user. I understand. the control is pretty easy. You just have to keep the sugar away from your father so that in any way he is unable to get it when you are not present. In your presence you can always tell him that and control the behavior. But I suggest you to just leave him to enjoy. But not to enjoy too much. Take care.

I am 25 years old boy I have thyroid problem and I am talking 125 mg of thyroxine tablet. Doctor said you need to take life long I need a permanent treatment.

MBBS
General Physician,
Hello, Thanks for your query on Lybrate As per your clinical history is concerned please follow like this - 1) Do take medications regularly and do a clinical exam every 3 months by your doctor(Endocrinologis)and check your TSH level every 3 months. 2) Do take a multivitamin like (Rejuvit Plus )once a day at bedtime. 3) Do regular exercise 30 mins in a day. Diets required for Hypothyrodism - Some diet suggestions for hypothyroidism include: 1) Foods high in Omega 3 and Omega 6 fatty acids such as leafy green vegetables, salmon, nuts, seeds, and shrimp should be added to your menus. 2) Try to drink plenty of fluids throughout the day. Water and green tea can be sipped on in between meals to prevent dehydration. 3) Take Iodine rich foods such as seaweed and algae should be eaten regularly. Foods such as broccoli, cauliflower, soy, beans, and spinach can actually slow down the functioning of the thyroid so they should be eaten in small quantities. 4) Try to avoid artificial sweeteners, caffeine, dairy and alcohol when on a diet for hypothyroidism. 5) You can do Yoga poses such as the Sun Salutation, the Dead Man's pose, the Wind Relieving pose, Head to Knee Pose, the Fish pose and the breathing techniques are vital for providing energy, improving blood circulation and relaxing the nervous system along with improving the functioning of the thyroid gland. So to do it you need to consult with a yoga instructor. Hope that helps.

I am 26 year old I had cardiac problem now my t3 = 1.17 T4=8.70 TSH=9.14 sugest me what I do now?

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. I have gone through the details, with TSH 9.14 mU/L you have subclinical hypothyroidism. Usually no treatment is advocated till TSH crosses 10 mU/L. But if there are any of the troublesome symptoms present then treatment is considered. Please also clarify what do you mean by :cardiac problem" Thanks.

Hi! My Mother was suffering last 6-7 years in Thyroid and migraine problem, I was try lots of medicine and checkup but still not improve so please kindly suggest for better option or Doctor as soon as possible.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. For hypothyroidism there is only one medication and that is adequate dose of Levothyroxine to be taken daily early morning on empty stomach. If TSH is maintained between 3 to 4 mU/L then most of the symptoms of hypothyroidism are in check. As regards migrane it is a difficult condition to treat. Multiple remedies have to be tried, plus precaution should be taken to avoid known triggers. Thanks.
