It is under fair control. No immediate risk but try to keep it under 140. That would be my aim since you are still young. Are you on medications?

Hello, the sugar readings you have are definitely not good for your kidney. Based on your weight and other parameters, exact kidney function can be assessed. The damage to a diabetic kidney is slow and often missed by patient & doctor alike, so am glad you are aware of the risks. The current medications will help with preserving kidney function, though strict BP control would be required along with some dietary adjustments. Regards.

1. avoid caffeine found in coffee,tea , chocolate,cola,and some pain relievers.[four to six hours before bedtime.] 2. quiet, dark, and cool environment can help promote sound sleep. . [Use heavy curtains, or an eye mask to block light, and also keeping computers, TVs, and other work materials out of the room will help promote mental bonding between your bedroom and sleep] 3. Avoid stressful, stimulating activities like doing work, discussing emotional issues. Physically and psychologically stressful activities can cause the body to secrete the stress hormone cortisol, which is associated with increasing alertness.

Your fasting and pp sugars are high. You need to take medicines for the same at the earliest. Stop all simple sugars or direct carbohydrates. Exercise in any form but regularly for about half hour at a time. You are still very young. So you should take control of diabetes as soon as possible.

What causes Hashimoto's thyroiditis, and what is the best method of treatment? Can iodine help this condition?

DHMS (Diploma in Homeopathic Medicine and Surgery)
Homeopath, Ludhiana
Hashimoto's thyroiditis (HT) is a condition caused by inflammation of the thyroid gland. It is an autoimmune disease, which means that the body inappropriately attacks the thyroid gland - as if it was foreign tissue. The underlying cause of the autoimmune process remains unknown. Hashimoto's thyroiditis tends to occur in families. It can be associated with other autoimmune conditions such as type 1 diabetes or celiac disease. Hashimoto's thyroiditis is 5 to 10 times more common in women than in men and most often starts in adulthood. Blood drawn from people with Hashimoto's thyroiditis typically reveals an increased number of antibodies against thyroid-specific proteins, including thyroperoxidase and thyroglobulin. T- lymphocytes, a type of cell involved in the inflammation process, invade the thyroid gland cause silent, painless inflammation that destroys it; ultimately, the individual produces little or no thyroid hormone and becomes hypothyroid.----------------During the early stage of thyroiditis, the levels of thyroid hormones (T3 and T4) may be normal. With chronic hypothyroidism, the thyroid hormone levels fall, and the level of thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) becomes high. The most useful assay for determining thyroid status is measurement of TSH in the blood. As mentioned earlier, TSH is secreted by the pituitary gland. As the level of thyroid hormone falls, the pituitary gland responds by releasing more thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH). The increase in TSH can actually precede the fall of thyroid hormone to low levels by months or years, so the first sign of hypothyroidism may be an elevated TSH level even when levels of thyroid hormones are normal. ---------------------•The treatment of choice for Hashimoto's thyroiditis is typically synthetic T4 or thyroxine (levothyroxine) along with homoeopathic medicine THYROIDINUM- 3X (Schwabe Gernam) by chewing 2 tabs twice daily so as to keep the dosage of Levothyroxine under check. The medication must be taken indefinitely, and successful treatment alleviates the symptoms and signs of hypothyroidism. Without medication, there is very little chance the thyroid would be able to maintain hormone levels within the normal range, and symptoms and signs of hypothyroidism would occur or worsen.--------------------------NowayIodine will make the things worse in erson having HT as Iodine intake increaes the TSH levels whereas HT presents itself with Hypothyroidism where the levels of TSH are already high--------

You have to ensure that your diabetes is fully under control. If it is not under control you may develop frost bite leading to gangrene of foot at such extreme low temperature. If possible you should avoid going to such area. Take your medicine regularly. Avoid taking sweets, high calorie food and carbohydrate rich diet. Take adequate protection against cold exposure and take extreme care of your hands and feet. Before going to that area, do your blood sugar test and consult Diabetologist for necessary advice

If t4 increased then what problems will be arise and what will be the medication?
The T4 test has no specific risks. Risks include those present whenever you have your blood drawn. In rare cases, you might experience a serious complication such as an inflamed vein, an infection, or excessive bleeding. More commonly, you may experience pain or discomfort during the blood draw. You might also bleed slightly after the needle is removed, and you might develop a small bruise around the puncture site. you can take your tab. eltroxin according to value of t4.

Eating selenium-rich foods, such as sunflower seeds or Brazil nuts, can be beneficial. Tyrosine: This amino acid is used by the thyroid gland to produce T3 and T4. Taking a supplement may help,

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.
