I had been tested for vitamin d and Tsh levels approx 3months back. My vitamin d levels were less than 10 and Tsh levels were 5 (normal range as per lab: 4.9) Since then I have been suffering from muscle pain and cramps during mensuration. This time I faced a lot of neck pain during mensuration. Notes: I have taken vitamin d supplements but no medicine for thyroid.

Ayurveda, Ambala
* Neck pain occurs due to wrong posture or due to strain on your neck muscle . Check your posture , do not bend your neck excessively and when you work on your laptop or computer after half hour of working move your neck slowly in clockwise and anticlockwise direction . * Do neck massage with lukewarm mustard oil . * Do not take pillow of high hight during sleeping Or avoid to take pillow . * In diet vegetable protein of cereal , B complex supplements and half teaspoon of haldi in a cup of milk for seven days will give you enough relief.

Recently I had my blood test which showed elevated FASTING plasma glucose 108 mg/dL. I never had sugar earlier nor it runs in my family. Past 1 year I had it checked 3 times and results were 85, 87, 87 mg/dL respectively. But now it's showing 108. Also my post prandial plasma glucose (2 hours) is 112 mg/dL. And result is negative. How come I have 108 fasting sugar with such low post prandial sugar? Is it a lab investigation error?

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Some times there could be a slight variation in glucose levels. Even 106 mg, does not show that there is diabetes. Your PP is excellent. There is no reason to worry. You may do next check if needed after a year or so. Thanks.

Dear patient, I suggest you some natural antioxidant with Vitamin C combined diet like.. green tea with lemon juice , Sprouts with slice of ginger and lemon, Lemon juice with lukewarm water that will help you weight reduction and protection from skin damage. But green tea and lemon water not to take at empty stomach. Avoid oily food, spicy foods,jam jelly,ghee, honey, salt, sweets, fried foods, junk foods. Green vegetables, fresh fruits, Skin less fish, chicken add in your diet chart. Do not be at fasting more than 3 hours take low amount of food at regular interval.Do brisk walk for 45 min in a day at any time. Thanks..

Fruit salad and blood sugar estimation by glucometer do not mix.
Eating fruits with fingers and doing blood sugar by glucometer without washing fingers with soap and water can give high blood sugar just by sugar sticking to fingers.Even cleaning finger tips with alcohol swab will not help.If eaten fruit with fingers,then wash your hand first before doing blood sugar by glucometer.

Your treatment is not adequate. You need more medicines. Also avoid direct sugars and oily food. Use fiber rich food. Medicines can be advised only after detailed work up like kidney, liver functions and lipid levels.

Dear lybrate-user, I can feel your anxiety and concern. Having multiple disorders require many medicines to be prescribed for each of the disorder. Diabetes can cause erectile dysfunction and many medicines can also lead to erector dysfunction. Also stress and depression associated with chronic multiple disease can contribute or cause erectile problems. It'll be prudent on your part to consult the doctor personally after letting him know proper history. This way he can help you better.

Urine pregnancy test determines the pregnancy. If you want to know definitely if she is pregnant you can even do a beta hcg test. For diabetes it is better to do blood sugar test than urine sugar test.

How can we control sugar our self. Regarding sweats and munching items. Pleas advise.
Preventing or managing diabetes requires clinical interventions as well as lifestyle changes. Medication is only one small part of managing diabetes. The major changes come from self-care activities. There are five essential self-care behaviours that have good outcomes. 1. Diet – Consume a low-fat, high-fibre diet helps. Eat lot of fruits, vegetables (at least 4-5 helping a day) along with whole meal, cereals and lentils 2. Exercise for at least 30 minutes a day, 5 days a week. 3. Medications – Be compliant with the dosages. 4. Testing - Monitoring blood sugar and screening for complications 5. Psychology – Acceptance, coping and problem solving skills
