I normally check my blood sugar without symptoms by doctor grouse metre it comes 111, what it shows.
It shows a pre-diabetic state. However, there can be 10-15 % variability in the glucometer readings. It would be ideal to check blood sugar both fasting and pp in the lab once a year. Doing an hba1c also helps in diagnosis. Alternatively, you can get a glucose tolerance test done also.

What could be the consequences if a diabetic person of 65 years of age has gone into hypoglycemia indicated by heavy sweating at 3 AM and is not able to get up at 5:30 AM in a routine manner? On waking him up he behaves in an absent-minded person and uncontrolled childish manner. What should be done in such situation?

Too much cholesterol in the blood can lead to cardiovascular disease. What you eat has a direct impact on your cholesterol level. In fact, a diet rich in fiber and other cholesterol-lowering foods may help lower cholesterol as much as statin medication for some people. Working with a registered dietitian and doctor is the key to develop and maintain a successful health program to manage it. I will inform you on how to make diet, lifestyle changes, make you understand instructions for taking medication because it won't work if you don't take it as directed. Consult privately for a holistic dietary therapy to solve your problems.

lybrate-user ji, uric acid is high. It can cause kidney stones or joints pain. You have to change your diet for long time. Uric should be below 5.Don’t start modern medicine. If you want you can take consultation with us. So that I can give you full guidance. Thanks.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. If you have T2 diabetes then it can be controlled quite well with oral hypoglycoemic drugs, in adequate dose, plus restricted diet and regular exercise. If oral drugs become less effective, newer compounds need to be added or in some Insulin injection has to be added to the treatment. So we will have to give a very close look at your current treatment and then decide what can be done to increase the efficacy. So if you are interested then please come in a private conversation with following details like Fbg, PP & HbA1c%, present drugs with dosage, dietary pattern and extent of daily exercise, then based on those details I will be able to guide. Ideally FBG should be <100 mg, PP 150 to 160 mg & Hba1c% <6.8. Thanks.

Hello you have hypothyroidism, hence only treatment is taking thyroxine. Taking that hormone is essential during pregnancy. Without that the fetus will be affected badly. There will be no harm to the baby

Is diabetes is curable disease. I want to get rid of this I am diabetic for last 20 years and on tab metformin 500.

Is diabetes is curable disease. I want to get rid of this I am diabetic for last 20 years and on tab metformin 500.
Yes, type 2 diabetes is definitely a curable disease, especially in the early stages. Ie, during the first 2-3 years. In fact, it can be fully reversed without any surgery. All that the patient needs to do is meticulously control both the body weight & diet. Easy to say, but difficult to do. But definitely possible. However, after 20 years, as in your case, it might be very difficult.

In Type I Diabetes Cetapin will not help. Instead start other tablet or additional ultra long acting insulin.
