Mr. lybrate-user, Your query is very general, so it is difficult give any answer. Because medication is decided on blood glucose levels severity, HbA1c%, patients weight and extent of exercise etc. Unless all the details are made available there is no way I can give any suggestions. About foods one should avoid sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries, bakery items and sweetened aerated drinks. Consume more of green leafy vegetables, salads and permitted fruits. Thanks.

Mr. Lybrate-user, hypothyroidism is a condition which has to be treated for life time. So you will have to continue the same treatment. When treatment is adequate tsh levels should be around 3 to 4 milli units/ml. With regards.

Hello doctor .if creatinine level rises to 1.8 what does it signs and how to reduce creatinine and uric acid in blood.
I recommend the following 1. Find out how much of protein you are losing in the urine. Protein in urine rises the creatinine. tablets like ace/arb can reduce protein in urine 2. Avoid red meat 3. Avoid weight lifting exercises 4. Tab nephrosave twice daily has given good results in my patients 5. Most importantly make sure bp is within 130/70 at all times

What are the causes of diabetes. Is it hereditary? What are the chances of it being inherited from parents?

MBBS, MD - Medicine
General Physician, Delhi
What are the causes of diabetes. Is it hereditary? What are the chances of it being inherited from parents?
Type 1 diabetes occurs sporadically and usually occurs at younger age due to insulin deficiency and treated with insulin injections. Type 2 can be hereditary if your parents are disbetic and it occurs usually in adults due to insulin resistance and treated with oral medicines. There is 50% risk if both your parents are diabetic. It can't be cured completely but you can keep it controlled by taking dietary precautions n regular exercise along wid medications.

You must stop eating direct sugar and high carb high calorie diet. The prescribed anti diabetic medicines must be taken regularly. Take small frequent meals in place of 2 full meals. Eat green vegetables and beet root to improve your hemoglobin. Do walking exercises regularly.

How To Take Your Thyroid Medication
===============================
If you want to make sure that you are taking your thyroid medication properly, here are some guidelines to help.

Always check the prescription against what you receive. Don't allow generic substitutions.
Most doctors feel that taking thyroid hormone on an empty stomach allows for maximum absorption.
Many practitioners advise that you allow at least one hour before eating, because it allows for maximum absorption.
Be consistent about a high-fiber diet. If you start or stop eating high-fiber, get your thyroid rechecked, because it may change your absorption.
Many experts recommend you take vitamins or supplements with iron at least two to three hours apart from thyroid hormone. Iron can interfere with thyroid hormone absorption if taken too close together.
Be careful about taking calcium and calcium-fortified orange juice at the same time as thyroid hormone. Allow at least 2-3 hours apart, so absorption is not affected.
Don't take antacids within two hours of thyroid hormone. Allow at least 2-3 hours apart, so absorption is not affected.
Watch for interactions with antidepressants & thyroid hormone. Zoloft, Paxil and Prozac can make thyroid meds more or less effective. Talk to your doctor.
Don't stop taking thyroid hormone when you're pregnant or breastfeeding. It's necessary for you and your baby's health. Talk to your doctor about adjusting to the right dosage.

My sugar levels are 100-120 and 140 I am 45 .am I diabetic .if any medicine required.
wat you have is impaired glucose tolerance. if you control your diet by avoiding sugary items, canned foods, excess salt in diet you can maintain balanced blood sugar levels. You need to cut down on carbohydrates, include soups, sprouts, oats, dryfruits and high fibre diet. Go for regular walk, start exercises, yoga, meditation, drink 2-3 litres water per day. Check your blood sugar levels regularly to keep a watch.

Health tips for patients of diabetes mellitus

MBBS, MD - Community Medicine
General Physician, Ghaziabad
Health tips for patients of diabetes mellitus
Health tips for patients of diabetes mellitus. I wont write long list of do's and dont's. Its simple things which you can follow in your everyday life.

1. Avoid eating following food items. Potato, rice, corn, corn flakes, market made cereal, muesli (contains added sugar), oily stuff such as parantha, poori & pakode.

2. Take a brisk walk for at least 30 kin per day preferably in morning. Brisk walking means at a pace when you start getting tired and sweaty.

3. Weight reduction is very important. Of you r overweight join some cardio program or swimming or jogging or walking to reduce weight

4. Take small meals frequently. Instead of having large meals at long intervals.

5. Ideally blood sugar should be checked daily but thats not possible in our scenario so once a week or twice a month is f9.

6. Get your eyes checked regularly for signs of diabetic retinopathy. Visit ophthalmologist as soon as you are diagnosed with type diabetes. You will be shocked to know that a large number of diabetics are diagnosed by their ophthalmologists

7. Diabetes have an effect on kidneys and nerves also so get renal function test every 6 monthly or so.

8. Foot care is very imp in diabetes because even a trivial injury in. Leg can become gangrene. Use silicone sole footwear available at medical shops. Never go outside with bare foot.

10. Regular medicine intake is very imp

11. Lastly diabetes is a lifestyle disorder. Sedentary lifestyle makes things worse and result into syndrome x which apart from diabetes also includes increased lipids in blood and hypertension. Adopt an active life style.

Please see that four tablets may be too much, and vicks action 500 is not safe, simply do salt water gurgle instead of vicks action 500.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Based on the details mentioned it looks like her blood glucose level is not in good control. It is better if her HbA1c% is checked, which gives an idea about long term control. Usually in patients with long standing diabetes in later years, treatment with Insulin becomes a necessity. Because oral drugs do not give necessary response. My suggestion is please comeback with following details: Fasting, PP glucose levels, HbA1c%, dietary pattern extent of daily exercise and dosage of current medication, preferably in a private conversation (paid consultation, where I will be able to guide specifically plus prescribe the required drugs including Insulin if needed. Thanks.
