Hi, I am suffering with thyroid problem with last seven years, Please suggest me to control the thyroid in limit. And last month it is 26. Or Any tips regarding the taking foods.

Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Mr. lybrate-user, The level mentioned (26) is I think TSH is it true? If correct, then it shows totally uncontrolled hypothyroidism. When on treatment TSH should be between 3 to 4 mU/L, then only all the symptoms are in check. It appears the current treatment is grossly inadequate. First and foremost is treatment has to be upgraded. Thanks.

good evening, in t1 diabetes insulin is the only treatment because in those patients pancreas does not produce insulin at all. In t2 diabetes if oral drugs are not able to give adequate sugar control then insulin injections are given. Insulin is given whenever there is need for it. Age is no concern. To my knowledge ayurvedic medicines really do not help in controlling blood sugar. In case of bp they might help.

Please do not worry. You left smoking before 6 months. Therefore, the present problem do not have any connection with quitting smoking. Diabetics could be one reason. Please consult your diabetologist. Take care.

Quest" What is the initial symptoms of diabetes? How can be people be alerted from such type of diseases.
Mr Sonu, Diabetes mellitus usually does not produce any symptoms, that is the reason many people do not come to know that they have diabetes. When fully developed it can cause excess urination, excess hunger, excess thirst, unexplained weight loss and tiredness. Only way detect diabetes is to do a blood sugar level check.

Hello, If one has diabetes then it is preferable to avoid either sugar or sugar free tablets along with tea, coffe or milk. The sugar substtutes are not really safe. Their intake increases craving for sugar. They may not giving calories, but can be harmful. Thanks.

Sweet potato is also starch rich. So should not be taken. You can take small quantity of potato occasionally after boiling.

Lybrate-user, Corn flakes are good for breakfast for a non-diabetic person, as they give a lot of simple carbs. Hence, not suitable for you. May you might think of taking them once a while. Thanks.

Dear let me know your latest sugars. It is very rare to have low blood sugars with only one tablet of glyciphage. Have small frequent meals every 3 hrs. Why dont you try cycling. It ia a very good exercise. Also you need to understand that energy expenditure should be more than energy intake for a successful weight loss. Please consult a dietician for a lesser calorie diet which does not cause weakness.

Hi , 1.Eat a lot of non-starchy vegetables, beans, and fruits such as apples, pears, peaches, and berries. 2.Even tropical fruits like bananas, mangoes, and papayas tend to have a lower glycemic index than typical desserts 3.Eat grains in the least-processed state possible: “unbroken,” such as whole-kernel bread, brown rice, and whole barley, millet. 4.Limit white potatoes and refined grain products to small side dishes. 5.Limit concentrated sweets—including high-calorie foods with a low glycemic index, such as ice cream—to occasional treats. Eliminate sugar-sweetened drinks. 6.Eat a healthful type of protein at most meals, such as beans, fish, or skinless chicken.Choose foods with healthful fats, such as olive oil, nuts (almonds, walnuts), and avocados. 7.Limit saturated fats from dairy and other animal products. Completely eliminate partially hydrogenated fats (trans fats), which are in fast food and many packaged foods. 8.Have three meals and one or two snacks each day, and don’t skip breakfast. 9.Eat slowly and stop when full

With blood sugar levels of 200 to 300 mg, she has a uncontrolled diabetes. This needs to be rapidly controlled with appropriate treatment with anti diabetic drugs either oral or with insulin injections. Uncontrolled diabetes affectsall vital organs like eyes (retina), kidneys, small and large blood vessels, heart and nervous system. So please initiate correct treatment immediately and bring sugar levels down to _ fasting closer to 100 mg and pp around 150 to 160mg and hba1c%<7. This is a must. Plus she should take a restricted diet and exercise daily. Avoid sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries. Consume more of green leafy vegetables and salads. Use whole grain flour for chapati and roti. No maida. If you want specific suggestions please come in a private conversation where I can be specific.

you are over weight, with bmi 27.81kg/m2, this is one of the reasons for improper control of blood sugar. But still 183 mg/100 ml, is not that bad. If you are really serious on reducing weight then exercising is a must. How to take out time is your decision. One way is to have a tread mill machine at home and exercise. Please let me know the hba1c%, which gives an idea about long term sugar control.
