Dear friend, many of newly detected diabetics have sugars in range of 500-600 mg%. So you're not the odd man out although it's not good to see such high sugar readings. Please understand. That when sugar touches pancreas, insulin is released which takes sugar into the cell for energy production but with very high sugar pancreas becomes numb and doesn't release insulin in response to food. Under such condition pancreas doesn't respond to oral medications and hence insulin usage for initial one month or so helps immensely. Please follow your doctors advice without anxiety. Insulin is the safest and best drug provided dose is adjusted judiciously and diligently. Hope this helps.

Yes hba1c of less than 7 is advisable according to ada criteria. Hba1c is average test for last 3 months blood sugar control and more reliable test. Get it checked. More tighter control in elderly risks frequent hypoglycemia episodes so tighter control without hypoglycemia is to be targetted.

Most of the time, a high uric acid level occurs when your kidneys don't eliminate uric acid efficiently. Things that may cause this slow-down in the removal of uric acid include rich foods, being overweight, having diabetes, taking certain diuretics (sometimes called water pills) and drinking too much alcohol. Avoid meats such as liver, kidney and sweetbreads, which have high purine levels and contribute to high blood levels of uric acid. Selected seafood. Avoid the following types of seafood, which are higher in purines than others: anchovies, herring, sardines, mussels, scallops, trout, haddock, mackerel and tuna. Alcohol

Mr. Lybrate-user, first thing is his blood sugar should be well in control with fasting sugar near 100 mg, pp should be 150 to 160 mg and hba1c% <7. Agar unaka sugar level aisa hai to accha hai. Because if you want to feed him anything extra that will affect blood sugar badly. You might think of giving egg white regularly and some protein powders without carbohydrate.

From last 2 years my sugar level was 130 and now it is 150-160. what medicine should I have? Please help me.

Dear kindly specify whether these are fasting sugar values or post meals. As fasting 150 is very high and if post meals it falls in prediabetic range. Depending on that, tablet metformin would have to be started alongwith exercise and weight reduction.

lybrate-user, TSH value of 10.55 shows you have overt hypothyroidism and it needs to be treated right away with appropriate dose of thyroxine. There is no other option. Plus you wil have to exercise regularly so that normal weight is maintained. Thanks.

The most important thing is in diabetes is diet and exercise.These two things will help you to lower blood sugar levels and to reduce medicinal dose.So do regular exercise.Take small amount of foods.Eat 5-6 times instead of 3 big meals.Avoid fast foods junk foods,processed foods.No sugar,sweetened juice,cola,soft drinks.No underground vegetables,banana,pumpkin.Take lots of watery and whole fruits,vegetables.Use unrefined foods.Take more protein which will help to improve insulin sensitivity.Use healthy fats small amount.Drink lots of water specially before meals.Avoid smoking,alcohol.Use nutritional supplement to manage your diabetes.you can use fenugreek seeds with1/2 glass water on an empty stomach in the morning.Adjust your medication with diet.Stay stress free and take proper rest.These will be helpful.
