I am 29 years male and I have tsh value 8.85 which is higher than normal value (0.35-5.50). But my t3 and t4 values are normal. And there is swelling under eyes. I have taken lots of medicines as well as eye drops suggested by eye doctors. But the swelling is still there and it look like permanent under eye bags. Is there a correlation between these two symptoms? Which doctor should I contact eye doctor or skin or physician?

Mr. Lybrate-user, pp ka matalab hai post prandial (after food). Usually break fast ya lunch lene ke 2 ghante baad blood sugar ko dekha jata hai. Fasting ka matalab hai kareeb 8 se 10 ghante ka samay beetana chahiye khane ke baad. Random blood sugar ka matalb din me kabhibh chek karana. Fasting agar >126 mg /100, ya pp >200 mg /ml ya rbs >140 mg ka matalab - us aadami ko diabetes hai.

Hello, he should take proper care of his blood sugar so that it is maintained within normal limits. That will help in preventing unnecessary load on the kidney. Strict sugar control, diet control and salt restriction and controlling bp are important. No one can predict about how long one lives.

You did not mention that this value if fasting/ random/ after meal Normal Blood Sugars. A normal fasting (no food for eight hours) blood sugar level is between 70 and 99 mg/dL. A normal blood sugar level two hours after eating is less than 140 mg/dL

Avoid outside spicy and fried food. Walk about 3-5 kms daily. There should be gap of 2hrs after dinner and sleep. Small and frequent meals is of help. Keep your blood sugar controlled. Raise your bed about 4" from headend side. Get your gastroendoscopy done. Tab nexpro-l 1 tab empty stomach.

What are the symptoms of diabetes And how to take healthy food for muscular body?

What are the symptoms of diabetes
And how to take healthy food for muscular body?
Increase thirst, increased frequency of urination are some initial symptoms of diabetes but it can vary from being completely asymptomatic to non specific symptoms like weakness, tingling in feet, dry mouth, blurry vision, burning during urination. You need to follow a healthy lifestyle to prevent such metabolic diseases. Type 1 usually occurs at younger age due to insulin deficiency and treated with insulin injections. Type 2 usually in adults due to insulin resistance and treated with oral medicines. It can't be cured completely but you can keep it controlled by taking these precautions. Increasing the intake of protein in your diet along with regular exercise is the way to acquire a muscular physique.

Syedji, If patient has diabetes then immediate treatment initiation is a must. To bring diabetes in control patient should maintain fasting sugar nearer 100 mg and PP around 150 to 160 mg and HbA1c<7%. This can be achieved by proper drug treatment, diet control and exercise. plus time to time blood sugar check up also needs to be done like initially once a week or once in 15 days. If you are looking foe specific guidance it will be better if you come ina private conversation, where I can be very specific.

Your blood sugar levels r normal. No need to worry but sgpt is increased means that yr liver is not properly functioning. So 1. Avoid overeating 2. Avoid excessive milk products like cheese, butter and ghee 3. Avoid fast food, spicy and fried food 4. Avoid alcohol if you you're taking 5. Avoid non veg 6. Take nutritious homemade diet.

Thyroid problem can affect both mother and child badly. But if thyroid is controlled, there is nothing much to worry. So, ensure that your thyroid is normal before conception.

Dear since you have diabetes you need exercises to keep fit and control your sugar. Since you have knee pain best exercise for your problem is cycling. Do buy a stationary bicycle and exercise for at least 20-30 minutes daily and then twice a day.

That depends on how many insulin units your grandpa is taking currently! Insulin prescription is never an absolute prescription which is only and completely linked to sugar values. Let me explain you by example. You and your friend ran the same distance when exercising in the morning. Would it be correct to say that you both will have the exactly same amount of food- No, obviously not because you both will be of different built. Similarly, the treatment of diabetes is individualised for a person and not customised based on reports. Since your grandpa's sugar is uncontrolled we need to increase his insulin dose but by how much - that can only be decided by his current treatment order.

Towel hamstring stretch lie on the back, supporting the thigh with the hand or with a towel wrapped around it. Slowly straighten the knee until a stretch is felt in the back of the thigh, trying to get the bottom of the foot to face the ceiling, one leg at a time. Hold the position initially for 10 seconds, and gradually work up to 20 to 30 seconds.

Liver enzymes are normal, c reactive protein is high -it can be due to infection/inflammation anywhere in the body, need not be due to heart or only due to heart in absence of specific symptoms of other organs, apo-1 is normal it is a fat+protein combo in blood that is water soluble and keeps circulating in the blood, in a way it reflects the good cholesterol which should be at a higher level to prevent blockages in the blood vessels, apo-b is very high -means it is a precursor of bad cholesterol in the blood that is responsible for blockages and plaque formation. Your dm-2 is under control with medication. You have to bring down apo-b by cutting down bad fats like transfats, oily food, etc which I am sure you are doing to control your dm. By increasing good cholesterol precursors like apo-1 & other apos except b (remember b for bad) your chances of getting bad fats on higher levels will get reduced. Take water with a spoon of honey (allowed for dm) with juice of a lemon every morning on empty stomach -it does burn bad fats, eat a spoon of good fats like desighee/ butter + a katori of assorted nuts every day (allowed for dm) cut down extra carbs in place of good calories gained.

Dear , Creatinine levels can be changed with proper water metabolism and does not necessarily need medicine support all the time. Neprosave is too strong a medicine. First of all, you need to reduce your weight by atleast 35 kgs to be able to reduce the burden on all you body organs. Any amount of medicine will help reduce the symptom, but a proper lifestyle, weight, proper regulated food are essential to maintain proper health. Regards.
