when diabetes is uncontrolled in some people it does produce classical symptoms like excess hunger, excess urination and excess thirst, plus unexplained tiredness and weight loss may occur. If you are not on treatment then all these symptoms will keep occurring. Hence please start treatment immediately. Even if you feel hungry at night eating will increase blood sugar.

Hello your statement is not very clear. But I think you want to know what happens in hypothyroidism. This condition is now a days seen more often in ladies. Patient feels weak and tired, weight may increase plus there may be swelling of legs and feet. It occurs because of lack of thyroid hormones like t3 and thyroxine. Treatment is to take thyroxine tablets regularly.

You must not take this drug unless you are hypothyroid. It will suppress your own hormones. You can get tremors or palpitation if overdose occurs.

To break that fatigue it is advisable to drink or eat protein and mineral food which would be a reservoir for you to store the energy. Anaemia always leads to the symptoms of being tired and also having body pain and laxity through out.

pulmocare is a protein supplement ,like any other protein powder. It cannot give strength to your lungs. It is recommended only for those people who have poor appetite and food (protein ) intake. try having balanced diet with milk,dal,soyabean, eggs etc. It is not sugar free, and not recommended for diabetic patients. do regular exercise and pranayam to improve lung power.
