Good to see that u r determined enough to overcome your problem. Monitor your blood sugar levels and regulate them at upto 110 fasting and upto 140 pp. If yr level r above this at a regular basis then it can effect other organs of yr system. Ibeing a homoeopath I will suggest you very good homoeo medicines without any side effects. Take these medicines to maintain yr blood sugar levels. Syzizium jambolanum q ( dr. Reckeweg ) 20 drops thrice daily in 20 ml fresh water before meals. Vincteoxinum ( adel ) 20 drops morning empty stomach in a glas of fresh water homoeo med. R very light medicines. You can discontinue any time u see that your blood sugar levels r persistantly normal. Report after 3 months

Looking at the details I suggest you should shift to long acting basal analogue insulin like injection basalog, start with 6 units once a day and increase the dose based on daily blood sugar levels. You will have to do self monitoring of sugar levels. One of the oral medications namely metformin with glimepiride to be continued.

You are not getting enough thyronorm and that is why your tsh is elevated. Please increase your thyronorm dose to 75 microgram. Also take it first thing in am and do not eat for 1/2 hour after taking the medicine. Have your tsh checked in 6 weeks. This should take care of most of your symptoms. Let us see how you do on this.

Dear patient, most common conditions of sexual activity are pre mature ejaculation, erectile dysfunction & micro penis (small penis). The main symptom of premature ejaculation is an uncontrolled ejaculation either before or shortly after intercourse begins. And erectile dysfunction, or ed, is the inability to achieve or sustain an erection suitable for sexual intercourse. Microopenis is a condition in which penis is much smaller than the normal length, hence no sexual satisfaction. Common causes include, habits, drug addiction, excess of masturbation, poor nutriiton, stress, anxiety. Most successful treatments for all the above mentioned 3 problems, include both correction of life style & diet, and proper consumption of homeo medicines till completion of course. 9 out of 10 cases now, responds well to morkoprad energy pills therapy [commontly known as mep], which is completely natural and safe. Go for this formula based therapy and revert back with result. For any doubts, feel free to ask regarding treatment criteria. Take care.

The best thing that you need to do is to go for vaman karma next month. Talk to a panchakarma expert. This will detoxify the body & lead to a decrease in sugar levels.

I am diabetic can I drink alcohol and what is the effect of spread cheese in diabetic.
Mr. Lybrate-user, our advise is to refrain from alcohol, as it gives empty calories, affects gastric mucosa badly, reduces hypoglycemic awareness and damages liver. Alcohol even in small quantity is not recommended. Cheese spread may be taken occasionally, provided blood sugar is very well controlled.

First thing you should do is to get rid off anxiety and stress as those are main offenders in many. You can try any of the following methods. You can do squeeze and stop technique. You can stimulate your partner to maximum before getting yourself stimulated. You can deviate your thought to something nonsexual when you about to near ejaculation. You can put on a condom or condom with anesthetic which will decrease the excessive stimulation on penis and there by prevent premature ejaculation. Hope this may help you. Let me know if you have any further query.
