The reported blood sugar levels are good. Ideally when in control fasting should be around 100 mg and pp between 150 to 160 mg and hba1c%<7. Hence there is no need for adding any drug or increasing the dose. Cocentrate on exercise and restricted diet, that should help.

Lybrate-userji, looking at the blood sugar report, it is clear that she has very high levels, (t2 diabetes). Needs to be treated with appropriate drugs, diet control and daily exercise. The problem must have been there for over a few months, that is why sugar levels are so high. Along with the treatment for diabetes, please get her eyes checked for ruling out any possibility of diabetic retinopathy. Go to any good eye specialist and get retinal examination done within next few days. If you want me advise on specific drug treatment and other details, then please come in a private conversation where I can guide specifically including giving prescriptions for the same. In this communication we are supposed to give only general advise. Also see that she avoids sweets completely, reduces intake of deep fried foods, avoids junk foods, pastries, white bread and other bakery items. She should consume more of green leafy vegetables, salads and permitted fruits about 100 g a day. Should walk for 1 hour every day. Thanks for the question.

My TSH Level is 8.16 please suggest am worried and stressed please help I don't wana be on medicine for a lifetime.
lybrate-user, Hypothyroidism is a thyroid hormone deficiency disorder. Since this hormone is required for development and day to day functioning of brain, plus essential for multiple metabolic reactions in the body. Therefore, it has to be made available every day, through supplement. Hence the treatment has to be for lifetime. There is no option. If one does not take treatment then consequences can be very serious. Thanks.

My Father is suffering from High Sugar and High BP after the treatment of 2 year in this field so please suggest me how.
Once the fasting blood sugar is more then 126 mg/dl and pp blood sugar is more then 200 mg/dl, patient is diabetic and diabetes can be controlled only by medication and can't be cured. The same os with blood pressure once it crosses the prehypertensive state B.P>140/90 medicines can control it but can not revert it back to normal.

Hello sir. This mistake is done by all diabetic patients. Taking sweets without no control. Ok.just leave that n better do not repeat this. To tackle this. Be on a strict diet cut down all carbs, sweets, sugars in your meal pattern. Go for a regular walking for about 45 mins daily without any compromise. Take more veg salads. This should be continued for 3 months no excuses in the following. Then go for a blood test mainly fasting, pp, and HBA1C. If then also it still the high v can think of changing the dosage of tablet but till tat follow a strict diet. It vl take tym to reach the lower levrl tat you had before. Do not lose hope. Follow a strict diet. If you want a personalised diet plan based on your likes n dislikes in food kindly book an appointment woth me. Thank you.
