lybrate-user Anchiyaji, Thanks for the query. The blood glucose levels mentioned are certainly very high. There is an urgent need for initiating anti-diabetic treatment. Plus you will have to start adapting a modified lifestyle. Which means taking a restricted diet, that provides exact calories based on ideal body weight (in your case it has to be about 60 kgs). Plus avoid sweets, junk foods, pastries, bakery items, colas and foods made out of maida. You will also have to do regular exercise for more than 1 hour, brisk walking is the best option. Also it would definitely benefit if you reduce weight by a few kgs. As regards prescribing the drugs, in this communication we are authorized to give only general guidelines, no drugs can be prescribed. So if you come in a private conversation with following details: current FBG, PP levels, HbA1c%, dietary pattern and extent of daily exercise, then I will be able to give specific guidelines. Thanks.

General Physician,
Eat more vegetables and minimum of rice. Wheat, butter sweets etc. Reduce intake to one third of what you eat now. You can read my article on obesity in health tips column in the site, weight gain is the result of sedentary life and overeating do aerobic exercises, jog, skip and run. Eat only half of what you eat now. Avoid or reduce sweets and butter, ghee and food containing these. You need to check for hypothyroid state. Go to lab and test tsh and send me the report in ask privately option.

Please do not get pregnant when your blood sugar levels are uncontrolled. It's always best to first control them, get pregnant & continue to keep them controlled throughout pregnancy. This way, you will decrease the risks to both you & your baby.

My father recently tested sugar and it is 290 in fasting. We consulted a doctor today and he advised to take insulin with power 20 morning and 16 night. My parents are very worried and I have never seen my father so weak before. I am trying hard to make the situation light by smiling and sharing many website notes where it is mentioned that it is curable and nothing to worry. They feel a bit relieved but still something is killing them inside. I am keeping myself strong by saying positive things to them but the truth is I am scared inside. Please suggest me what is the best possible treatment for this disease so that I can see my papa jumping and smiling. I know he is very strong but I also know that he is very worried. Can this be curable? I love them a lot please give me some power so that I can make them much strong and my father can get out of this disease completely.

Diabetes cannot be cured. If managed well enough, it can be curtailed to avoid complications such as kidney failure, amputation, blindness and stroke. 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

Hypothyroidism is a condition which can only be treated by taking tab thyroxine (thyronorm), to begin with start on 50 mcg daily, to be taken early morning on empty stomach and after that for 2 h nothing to be taken. Since you are pregnant medication has to be started right away and to be continued with out break. After 3 - 4 weeks check tsh, t3 & t4 levels.
