Eosinophil count is increased which shows she is having allergy. All of the allergies, what is done, is avoid direct contact with the allergen. As a routine doctors do prescribe antihistamincs and/or steroids in the form of oral, local. And injectable medicines. Allergy tests are avaible and after finding the specific antigen, desensitization also can be done. Thyroid if increased, or decreased will have different treatments. Hope you are helped regads.

I have used thyroid medicine 50 mg. After 2 months my tests are normal. Shall I stop medicine or continue how much mg medicine.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
I am sure the doctor who prescribed the thyroxine tablets must have told that that treatment for hypothyroidism is a life long one. If tsh levels have returned to normal, means your current treatment is effective and needs to be continued. On treatment tsh levels should remain between 3 to 4 milli units. Then only all the symptoms are well controlled. So please do not stop the medication. It has to continue for life time.

Mr. lybrate-user, If one is on treatment for hypothyroidism, then to be in control of all the symptoms including joint and muscle pains, TSH should be maintained between 3 to 4 mU/L. If that is achieved then most of the symptoms are in check. Thanks.

I am a diabetic patient for last 13 years I am taking regular medicine for that not insulin my fasting report is 229 one week before suggest what remedies I have to take?

PGDD, RD, Bachelor of Home Science
Dietitian/Nutritionist, Mumbai
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 - have small frequent meals. Do not fast for more than 2-3 hours. Avoid a very heavy meal at one time. Avoid fruit juices, aerated drinks or sugarcane juice, honey, jaggery or sugar. Fruits should be had as a mid meal. Avoid junk foods. Exercise and stay active. Do not attempt to try out too many remedies as you could go into hypoglycaemia. Sleep well. It's all a matter of discipline.

My mom has a sugar and heart disease what she can do for control his sugar and what she can eat.
First thing for your mom is finding a good doctor in your city. Second thing is to seek his advise every 2-3 months. Keep on checking blood sugar every month. Exercise, diet and drugs in that order of importance will keep the sugar and heart disease under control. Diabetes cannot be cured.

Preventing or managing diabetes requires clinical interventions as well as lifestyle changes. Medication is only one small part of managing diabetes. The major changes come from self-care activities. There are five essential self-care behaviours that have good outcomes. 1. Diet – Consume a low-fat, high-fibre diet helps. Eat lot of fruits, vegetables (at least 4-5 helping a day) along with whole meal, cereals and lentils 2. Exercise for at least 30 minutes a day, 5 days a week. 3. Medications – Be compliant with the dosages. 4. Testing - Monitoring blood sugar and screening for complications 5. Psychology – Acceptance, coping and problem solving skills

Please clarify whether honey can be taken by a diabetic and exactly what is the difference between type 1 & type 2 diabeties?

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Type 1 is the absence of pancreatic function as in children and type 2 is reduction in pancreatic function as in adults. Regarding honey sugar control is the biggest concern, it is not as easy task to control blood sugar in the desired normal range. Whatever we eat is metabolised to sugar in the body to provide energy for our daily activities. For the absolute control, one has to monitor his / her blood sugar at regular intervals (self-monitoring of blood glucose? smbg). Though difficult, this can be done by a glucometer and keep a record. Get an idea of fasting sugar (fbs) and 2 hours after food (ppbs) and check before dinner and after every major food. The basic idea is to reduce the food intake to 1/3 of what you take now. The dictum of sugar control is diet, exercise, diet + medicine and at later stage medicine+ insulin will be needed. For sugar control there is the need for regular advice and follow up. Just one time consultation or advice is not enough to guide a diabetic in scientifically & medically correct manner. For giving you regular follow up you ask me privately with all details like your daily eating pattern and medicines you take. I assure you a proper guidance. If you keep in touch.

Your thyroid needs iodine to work well, get enough from iodized table salt, fish, shrimp, and seaweeds. Thyroid needs magnesium also - spinach, lettuce, and other leafy greens are great sources of magnesium. Also cashews, almonds, and pumpkin seeds are another excellent source of magnesium.
