HbA1c is a test used to know the actual control of blood sugar over a period of last 3 months, rather than diagnosing Diabetes Mellitus. Levels below 6.5 in patients on anti diabetic treatment are considered to be having satisfactory control. Your sugar level after meals in the 1st report is definitely high and suggestive of hyperglycaemia. In the 2nd report it is important to know the time interval between meals and sampling. If it is at 90 minutes of a full meal then it should be normal. Now choosing 1 of the 2 reports or relying solely on HbA1c is not simple. To decide about DM you can go fora GTT ( glucose tolerance test).

give her tab. thyrox 50 mcg bbf, cap. neurokind plus 1od. after meal. support her . People with hypothyroidism may want to limit their intake of broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower, kale, turnips, and bok choy. Cooking the vegetables can reduce the effect that cruciferous vegetables have on the thyroid gland.

Mr. Lybrate-user, you can take vitamin supplements since your diet may not be adequate. Any vitamin supplement capsule is fine. Daily one would be good enough, like multivitamin combinations. There are a number of brands. Plus it better if you take some liquid tonic about 1/2 hour before food, which will stimulate appetite, a preparation like neogodine elixer 2 tsf 3 times a day. Thanks.

You need to increase thyroxine dose. Normally increament is done with 12.5 to 25 mcg dose. TSH takes around 6-8 weeks to reflect change after thyroxine dose increament. It is advisable to consult your diabetologist or endocrinologist before dose increament.

Mr. Lybrate-user, there could be quite a few reasons for not getting proper blood sugar control including diet regulation, amount of exercise or no exercise and dosage adjustments in relation to food intake. One thing can be done is first try and reduce fasting blood glucose. This can be done by monitoring it daily and reaching a target level of 100 to 110 mg. The night dose of insulin glargine can be increased by 2 units every 2 to 3 days, till fasting target is reached and then maintained. Later you can target pp sugar level. This way you should be able to control sugar level better. Recently there are a few new options also made available which can be considered to reduce the blood glucose. Plus give a close look at your diet control also increase daily extent of exercise. These things will help in reaching desired goals.

She has a thyroid problem and takes thyroxine 25 tablets. Did she continue these tablets.

MBBS, DNB (General Medicine)

Dear lybrate user, whoever has got a problem of thyroid-need to take their medicine regularly and for ever. Thyroid medicines are like supplemental hormone therapy. They're like important salt for the body which is deficient in people who have got thyroid problem. Hence thuroid medicines should be taken unless your doctor advises you to stop it.
