Mr. Lybrate-user, your glucose levels show a pre diabetes situation. No treatment is needed with drugs. A modified lifestyle is the requirement. Daily 1 hour exercise, maintaining normal weight and taking a balanced diet is needed. Avoid sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries & other bakery items, sweetened aerated drinks (colas), fructose corn syrup containing products, highly processed foods & high fat milk products. Consume more of green leafy vegetables, salads. & fruits. Use whole grain flour for chapati & roti. T.

Thyroid diseases and Diabetes are quite closely related to each other. All diabetics, especially Type 1 diabetics, should undergo screening for thyroid diseases as adviced by their Diabetologists. As thyroid diseases are more common in women, all female diabetics should definitely get screened too.

Thank you for the query. From your question I gather that you are already on glycomet trio (2 mg/500 mg/0.3 mg) thrice a day. This implies that you are on quite a high dose of oral anti diabetic agents. However, your sugar levels tend to remain high. I would like to enquire about your hbaic as that will give a better picture about your control. At this stage I would advice you to modify your diet (1400-1500 kcal) per day and opt for a exercise regimen (30 min per day for 5 days a week). Please get your eyes and renal functions checked. I would also advise you to monitor your blood sugar levels at home with a glucometer if possible.

You are taking trimetazine which is typically given in the management of angina or ischemic heart disease. Either your af is due to an ischemic episode some time back or due to thyroid. Please consult with all your reports as well as medications and ecg with ii long lead. Atrial fibrillation has some other problems too mainly pertaining to clots getting formed in the atria. Ideally there are drugs available for the management of the af which can be given and there are some minimal invasive surgical procedures too. Best of luck.

Lead poisoning occurs when lead is ingested. It can also be caused by breathing in dust that contains lead. You cannot smell or taste lead. It is not visible to the naked eye. Lead used to be common in house paint and gasoline in the United States. These products are not produced with lead any longer. However, lead is still present everywhere. It is especially found in older houses. Common sources of lead include: House paint from before 1978 Toys and household items painted before 1976 Toys made and painted bullets, curtain weights, and fishing sinkers made of lead Pipes and sink faucets, which can contaminate drinking water Soil polluted by car exhaust or chipping house paint Paint sets and art supplies Jewelry, pottery, and lead figures Other types of art hobbies and projects Storage batteries Kohl or kajol eyeliners (used more in other countries) Some traditional ethnic medicines At levels above 80 µg/dL, serious, permanent health damage may occur (extremely dangerous). Between 40 and 80 µg/dL, serious health damage may be occuring, even if there are no symptoms (seriously elevated). Between 25 and 40 µg/dL, regular exposure is occuring. There is some evidence of potential physiologic problems (elevated). Between 10 and 25 µg/dL, lead is building up in the body and some exposure is occurring.

I have a diabetic problem so how I control without insulin and how to cure the diabetic?
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.

Hi, There is no cure for diabetes. But with proper diet control, exercise and medications it can be adequately controlled. Diet: avoid all sugary, high calorie and high fat stuff. Take plenty of vegetables and at least 2 fruits (avoid mango, chikoo, jack fruit etc) / day. Limit your carbohydrates intake to 1/4 th of your plate - carbohydrates include rice/ roti/ chapati etc. Include whole grain foods in your diet. Take protein in the form of dal/eggs or non veg. Weight loss will help with better Diabetes control Exercise: at least 45 min of brisk walking, running, swimming, cycling etc Medication: take the medicines as prescribed by your doctor Hope this helps you. Thank you.

Hello, Your query does not give any relevant details about the person who is having diabetes according to you. If any suggestion is to be made, then I need to know following things: Patients age, weight, height, blood glucose levels fasting, PP & HbA1c%, lipid profile, present treatment with dosage, dietary pattern and extent of daily exercise being done daily. So if you are looking for proper advise and treatment come back with these details preferably in a private conversation then I will be able to guide. Thanks.

Hello. My father is 50 years old he is suffering from diabetics he is having 427 so what food we give and how can we control.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Is he on treatment for diabetes? if so what are the drugs? it appears his present treatment is not adequate. I suggest to shift on basal insulin like injection basalog to begin with 6 units once in the morning, do sugar checkup at home daily and if not at desired level increase insulin by 2 units every alternate day. Preferably with guidance from your doctor. About the food first check his daily caloric need based on ideal body weigh in kgs x 25 calories per day. Ideal body weight is height in centimeters - 100x 0.9 he has to eat only that much per day and walk 1 h every day. Avoid direct sweets, deep fried foods, excess salt and fruits like mango, chikkoos, grapes & banana.

I'm 26 yr old married female. I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism and hirsutism when I was 20 years. Doctor said there is nothing that he can do about hirsutism, however I have been taking thyronorm/thyroxin tablets (25mcg) daily in the morning 1-2 hours before breakfast. The levels are within the normal range. But I am unable to lose weight (because of lack of physical activity and sedentary lifestyle). For how should I continue the medication? and is there any cure for hirsutism? thank you.
