Mr. Lybrate-user, one can eat papaya, water melon, apple, orange, sweet lime, guava, pear, pomegranate and other melons. But only about 100 g a day, that too with excellent blood sugar control. Dry fruits can be taken but with a restricted quantity.

Hi my mom is having diabetes. She was on medicine. She was having Glynase -MF 1 and half tablet twice a day. But from last few days she is having a lot urine at night. She is having a loss of weight as well. If there is any cut or injury its taking a lot of time to recover and heal. We did the fasting and blood test. Test results:- Haemoglobin= 11.5 gms% = 78%(By Hellige Method) True Glucose (Fasting):- 260 mgm% We are not sure about the type of diabetes. She is herself a nurse. Help me with a suggestion what should we do? Should we do a C-peptide test first? Before taking any medication. Suggestions please.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Since she has been taking oral anti-diabetic drugs for controlling blood glucose, it has to T2 diabetes. In T1 only Insulin Injection has to be given. No other drug works. She now has an uncontrolled diabetes that is the reason for excess urination at night and weight loss, because more of glucose is being lost in the urine. She needs to achieve a strict blood glucose control with FBG < 100 mg, PP 170 to 180 mg & HbA1c% <7. That means there has to be a change in the current treatment. New drugs have to be added or Insulin may have to be started. There are other options also, but in this communication we are supposed to give general guidelines only. No prescriptions are allowed. If you are keen for improving her blood glucose levels and achieve better control, please come in a private conversation with following details: FBG, PP glucose levels, HbA1c%, dietary pattern extent of exercise or physical activity, lipid profile, BP readings. Based on those details I will be able to guide specifically and help improve the condition. There is no need for C- peptide testing. Thanks.

Recently I got thyroid tested for myself and my T3 AND T4 level were found normal./ In range. However, my TSH level is beyond the max. Level. I.e normal range is (0 to 4.5) and my TSH is 9.2 My doctor has prescribed me thyronorm (50 mg) for 3 months, and asked me to get retested after 3 months. My query is - Should I start taking medicines as I have read at many places that 1) immediately medicines should not be taken. 2) once medicine is started, It has to be continued lifelong. Please suggest whether I should start medication or not?

TSH 9.2 mU/L, is high but considered as subclinical hypothyroidism, usually no treatment is advocated at this stage. However, if a person has troublesome symptoms related to hypothyroidism then treatment is initiated in order to control the symptoms. If no symptoms are present then person is asked to repeat the thyroid test after 6 months and if the TSH goes beyond 10 mU/L, then treatment is advocated. Thanks.

lybrate-user, You have a BMI of 27.18 kgs/M2, which does show being over weight. TSH 0.6 mU/L mentioned is it present one? If that is correct, then your efforts to reduce weight should be successful. You may have to do more vigorous work outs, plus give a very close look at your diet. The diet has to be on the basis of ideal body weight (47 kgs) and to be adhered to very strictly. If you have any doubts please come back. Thanks.

It is difficult to judge as it is too general a symptom. If you feel better after change in diet and minor adjustments then do not worry. Please do go for a routine check up with a doctor and check for blood sugar and certain other tests like CBC, ESR, Thyroid tests, urine routine etc. Let the doctor take a detailed case history and advise accordingly. You can revert with the reports for further clarification.

Hello, Sleeping immediately after the meals is anyway not good for anyone, specially for diabetes. You need to keep atleast 2 hours gap between meals and sleep time.

Diabetes Foot Care - When you have diabetes, proper foot care is very important. Poor foot care may lead to amputation of a foot or leg.

As a person with diabetes, you are more vulnerable to foot problems, because diabetes can damage your nerves and reduce blood flow to your feet. The American Diabetes Association estimates that one in five people with diabetes who seek hospital care do so for foot problems. By taking proper care of your feet, most serious health problems associated with diabetes can be prevented. Your doctor will check your feet each year for any problems.

Here are some diabetes foot care tips to follow.

//Wash and dry your feet daily - Use mild soaps, use warm water, pat your skin dry; do not rub. Thoroughly dry your feet. After washing, use lotion on your feet to prevent cracking. Do not put lotion between your toes.

//Examine your feet each day - Check the tops and bottoms of your feet. Have someone else look at your feet if you cannot see them. Check for dry, cracked skin. Look for blisters, cuts, scratches, or other sores. Check for redness, increased warmth, or tenderness when touching any area of your feet. Check for ingrown toenails, corns, and calluses. If you get a blister or sore from your shoes, do not" pop" it. Apply a bandage and wear a different pair of shoes.

Weight and height always have a degree of genetic component. Moreover, insulin therapy leads to weight gain. If your sugar Evels are nicely controlled, you can plan a gym workout amd exercises to build muscles. But it need to be in collaboration with your doctor and dietician as exercise tend to lower the requirement of insulin and you will need to readjust ypur insulin dosage.
