Hi, loose your extra weight this will not only lower your blood but also helps lowering your blood pressure cholesterol too. You should go for 30 minutes brisk walk in the morning. Do regular exercise atleast 15 minutes daily. Take lukewarm water with half spoon methidana powder in the morning. Include complex carbohydrates and high fibre food in your diet. Avoid junk food and oily food. Never miss out breakfast. If you are also suffering for high blood pressure then you have to leave pickle, papad and pouring extra salt. Take small and frequent meals.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Beta blockers are used quite often to control hypertension and related cardiac problems in patients with diabetes also. They are fairly safe. Some times hypoglycemic episodes may not be easily recognised. Thanks.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Hypothyroidism is a hormone deficiency disease. In this condition your thyroid gland is not producing enough (nil) thyroxine. This hormone is necessary for day to day functioning of all the metabolic activities in the body. Therefore, it has to be supplemented every day for the rest of life. Hence there is NO CURE. When on treatment with adequate dose of thyroxine, TSH is maintained between 3 to 4 mU/L, at that level all the symptoms will be in check. So if the TSH level is 60 mU/L, means there is uncontrolled hypothyroidism. Thanks.

Hello, Thanks for the query. Diabetes has a familial spread. That means if one oth or both parents have it, then children can get it. But there is no spread from either husband to wife or vis a versa. It is non-communicable disease. Thanks.

To keep asthma at bay, steroids are required and steroids increases sugar. Avoid oral steroids and have steroid based inhalers do brisk walking for 45 min daily for atleast 5 days a week it will help both in asthma and diabetes.

I'm in love with a girl from 6 months. I wanted to marry her also. Suddenly I come to know that she's diabetic. And that too from childhood. My friends and relatives are saying that don't take risk. But I can't leave her because of her problem. What are the problems will I have to face if I marry her?

Hello, Firstly congratulations. Your girlfriend is most likely having Type-1 Diabetes. This starts from childhood normally and patients are on insulin. Diabetic patients can lead a happy, healthy and fruitful life. 1) The most important thing is for the diabetic patient to maintain his blood glucose in the optimal range. HbA1C is a blood test that measures the average blood glucose levels over the last 3 months and the result is given in percentage. As your girlfriend is young she should have her HbA1C less than 6.5-7%. So she should be seeing her diabetologist at least once every 3 months, sooner if her glucose levels fluctuates. 2) She should follow a healthy lifestyle with due importance to diet and exercise. 3) She should also have yearly health checks done- of eyes to check for any signs of retinopathy, kidney function tests (this is by a blood and urine test), routine ECG and foot checks to check for any neuropathy. 4) She can have a normal marital life and there should be no problem in conceiving or delivering children. But she would be monitored closely during pregnancy to make sure that her blood glucose levels do not fluctuate. Your children are unlikely to get Type-1 diabetes. It is actually Type-2 which runs in families more. So, relax and you can go ahead and marry her. Provide all the support that you can to your girlfriend. Diabetics can experience low sugar symptoms or may be frustrated when their sugar level fluctuate. So be patient with her. Lastly there are so many famous people with Type-1 diabetes- Kamal Hasan, Sonam Kapoor (actress- Anil Kapoor's daughter), Wasim Akram (cricketer), Gaurav Kapoor VJ and a host of international actors, actresses and sports players. So, if these people are able to lead such fruitful and healthy lives, so can your girlfriend. I wish you best of luck. Thank you.

If hypothyroidism is in control, weight gain can be controlled. When treatment tsh levels should be between 3 to 4 milli units /l, then all symptoms can be controlled. There is no special diet. Few substances like soy beans, soy containing products, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, radish, peanuts, mustard and coffee should be avoided. Consume more of green leafy vegetables, salads and fruits. Consume whole grain products, use whole grain flour for chapati and roti. Avoid using maida and high fat milk products. Plus exercise daily for 1 hour is necessary to control weight.

Sugar posting 106 & post lunch 117  & hba1c as 4.3% ion exchange reason method.
According to this values- 1- if you were not diagnosed previously as diabetes and under medication.- you don't have diabetes 2- if you are already under treatment then your diabetes cotroll is very good and continue your treatment. 3- you are over weight so start doing exercise and dietry modification to lower your weight. Hope you got your answers.

Take medicine continuously and go for BSL checkup on regular intervals. If values are in normal then nothing to worry to continue the medicine.
