I am 42 years old, male, in an active profession. In summers, over th last 4-5 years, iv been getting blisters on my left foot only. It starts with 5-7 blisters, but develops to 15-20. They are all located in the middle of the foot's sole. Not on the heel or th front carpal area. Nothing on fingers. Blood sugar is 90 at fasting. Ht is 183cm.

I would suggest you check your footwear. I have a doubt whether it might be allergic contact dermatitis. Some of the nailheads in your footwear might be exposed and coming in contact with your sole and when mixing with sweat, you might be allergic to the compound. Kindly consult a dermatologist when the lesions appear.

Please see to it that you wear cotton socks. Trim your nails regularly wear sandal with straps comfortable sports shoes of reputed brands dry your feet after a wash or a bath. Take special care of areas in between the toes. (fungal infections are common) any cuts and wounds have to be attended by doctors. Most importantly keep sugars under control.

Hi Type 2 Diabetes CANNOT be cured. Type 1 diabetes can be cured with pancreas transplant. However one needs to carefully weigh the potential benefits and risks involved.

Lybrate-user when you know that it is bad for your health then why do you want to do that. See anything done in moderation is not harmful but excess is definitely harmful. No one can ensure that you will not have diabetes. You have to take care of yourself. Remember an age old saying" it's not like that diabetes runs in family, it is more that no one runs in the family" hope this clears my point. So do exercise daily.

What is the problem in flue and what causes hashimoto's thyroiditis, and what is the best method of treatment?

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology

What is the problem in flue and what causes hashimoto's thyroiditis, and what is the best method of treatment?
Mr. Lybrate-user, influenza (flu), is a self limiting viral infection of upper respiratory tract. It can cause fever, (some times high fever) severe body ache including low back pain and joint pains, upper respiratory symptoms like running nose, sore throat and cough. There is hardly any sputum. Disease runs a short course of 4 to 5 days. But recovery is slow. Hashimoto's thyroiditis is an autoimmune disorder of thyroid gland where there are antibodise produced against thyroid peroxidase enzyme (anti tpo ab). These antibodies destroy thyroxine producing cells in the gland that results in thyroxine deficiency - hypothyroidism. The gland is filled with lymphocytes and may look globular and firm. One of the cause is said to be excess iodine intake through iodinated salt. Treatment is to start thyroxine tablets and take them for life time. This is the commonest cause of hypothyroidism in usa.

Dear your sugars are in the borderline range for diabetes as also your uric acid in the high range. Pl. Consult a diabetologist. You can start glyciphage sr 500 twice a day after breakfast & dinner. Avoid non veg foods, brinjal, cauliflowers, mushrooms, spinach, asparagus, chickoo, custardapple, maida & bakery products, tea, coffe & alcohol. Use elovera cream by glenmark pharma for your hands & feet. It will help you in psoriasis.

You might be having rebound hyperglycaemia in your fasting sample, because with 25 units of actrapid your post meal level is 145 only meaning insulin is effectively controlling it. Possibly after the evening dose of insulin and a longer interval between dinner and lunch, by the early hours of morning your blood sugar might be going below normal without your knowledge while you are asleep. At this the internal mechanisms of body release anti insulin hormones and the morning blood sugar in fasting samples is raised. The doctors even somtimes get misguided by this and further increase the evening dose of insulin insead of reducing it. In your case the evening dose may be reduced by 2 units and afte about 1 week the fasting sample be rechecked. It should show normal or near normal level.

It is wrong to prescribe medicine without examining. Blood glucose, hba1c, lipid profile. Blood urea, serum creatinine. Salt less than 2grams per day. Exercise anti diabetic drugs, antihypertensive drugs, low carb diet. Eg morning 8a. M tea without sugar 9a. M three iddlis with sambar 11a. M whole wheat grain sandwich with cucumber 1p. M one cup rice sambar, vegetables, butter milk 5p. M snacks like sandwiches 9p. M two chapattis with curry take papaya fruit. Avoid mangoes, bananas and suppotas.

Hi, presently you are on triple drug therapy with optimal dose of each medicine. As your sugar after food is 260 it seems that more tighter control of blood glucose levels is needed the exact blood glucose for you may differ according to your age and associated comorbidities. But before increasing your medicines it is necessary to know whether you are taking present medications in correct timings voglibose has to be taken 15 to 20 minutes before food along with medications exercise and diet control will help a lot exercise will reduce overall medicines requirements by decreasing insulin resistance and small but frequent diet will not allow blood glucose to rise up too high!

I am 36 years old and for last five year I have thyroid tsh 40 so can you suggest the medicine? Please advise.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
With such a high level of tsh you still not on treatment is it? please tell me if you are taking thyroxine tablet and what is the dosage. If no treatment is being taken then you have to start on thyroxine tablets. You may begin with 50 mcg per day, to be taken early in the morning on empty stomach and nothing to taken for two hours after that. After 3 to 4 weeks check tsh levels again if still high then increase the dosage.
