For diabetes follow a diet low in carbohydrate, low in salt, low in fat and high in fibre. Avoid bakery products. Avoid too much rice and potato. Avoid fried stuff. Avoid chocolate, cakes, ice cream, soft drinks and fruit juices. Eat lots of vegetables. Walk for at least 30 minutes a day for 5 days in a week. Medicine and insulin will work better if you follow diet and exercise. Your wife blood sugar are very high and such high blood sugar increases the risk of complication of diabetes.She needs to increase her insulin dose(and will require to take insulin 3-4 times in a day).

Dear lybrate-user, Glucose is the end product of carbohydrate digestion. Any food that has carbs will finally be broken down to simple sugar glucose for absorption into the body. This glucose gives energy to brain. Hence consumption of complex carbs like whole wheat flour or multigrain flour or oats does give glucose and it is released slowly into the blood stream helping to manage diabetes. Regards

Your bmi is 40. 9, and you are morbidly obese. You have to persist with a low carbohydrate and low fat high protein diet. Stop all cereals, sugar, bakery products and desserts. Take the white of 2 boiled eggs and lots of fruits and green vegetables and salads. If you don' t loose weight soon you will develop high bp also also. You need bariatric surgery as a permanent solution and it will treat your diabetes also. For more details read the health tips I have written on this website or send me a personal question.

If you are effective treatment then tsh should be around 3 to 4 milli units for achieving good control and removal of all symptoms. Looking at your weight and height, right in the beginning you should have started on a higher dose of thyroxine. Now you will have to increase the dose to 87.5 mcg per day. Then check tsh after 6 weeks to see if the levels are down. So please do that from today only. Thanks for the question.

I am 27 years old. I had TSH @ 3.22 range, I am using 25mg tablets at morning every day from two years. How long I could use medicine? Is there any way to reduce completely in?

The answer is homoeopathy. I do not force you for it but I will advise you to give it a try so as to get rid of life long medicines and that too with side effects. Although you nay find it difficult to take regular doses of homoeo medicines daily as compared to one tablet of allopathic medicine that you are taking but the end with homoeopathic medicines is always fruitful, if you get the right treatment in the hands of a right homoeo doctor----------------------

HbA1c is a blood test which gives an idea of blood sugar levels in the patient during last 2-3 months. It is helpful in diagnosing diabetes mellitus and also in planning as well as monitoring the response to the treatment. Other benefit is that it doesn't require fasting. Target of HbA1c is 7 for diabetics.

How to prepare for TSH/Thyroid test? Should Thyroxine be taken prior to the test?
Mr. T lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. There is no special preparation needed for doing thyroid test. Ideally blood should be taken before 10 ma in the morning. There is no need for keeping fasting state. Breakfast can be had. TSH levels are best tested before 10 am, to get accurate values. Thanks.
