A normal person has blood sugar in the range of : fasting levels less than 100 and 2 hr post food sugar less than 140. fasting levels above 125 and post food levels 200 and above is considered diabetic. any level in between is seen in a person at risk of developing diabetes in the near future (prediabetes). 160 in fasting is diabetic , whereas 160 seen 2hrs after food is prediabetes. the closer the sugar level is to the normal levels, the better is the control.

Mr. lybrate-user, Since you have started treatment with thyroxine tablets (50 mcg), it will take some time get the TSH to desired level of 3 to 4 mU/L, when all the symptoms will start disappearing. Once on treatment TSH should come down to the above mentioned level, to be free from all the symptoms. Once that happens you will feel quite normal and healthy. Plus you should exercise regularly so that there is no weight gain, because hypothyroidism does lead to weight increase. Try and maintain a BMI of <23 kgs/M2. If you have any doubts please come back. Thanks.

If it is indeed type-1 diabetes, you will have to continue taking insulin for the rest of your life. However, if you are not comfortable with multiple daily injections, then there are different modes of insulin delivery systems like the insulin pump that you can opt for.

There are many lifestyle and dietary guidelines that can be followed to protect against future flares or prevent gout or uric acid problems from occurring in the first instance: maintain a high fluid intake (2-4 liters a day) avoid alcohol maintain a healthy body weight eat a balanced diet limit fish, meat and poultry intake. If attempting to lose weight, avoid low-carbohydrate diets. If carbohydrate intake is insufficient, the body is unable to burn its own fat properly, releasing substances called ketones into the bloodstream. This results in a condition called ketosis that can increase the level of uric acid in the blood. It is most important to avoid foods that are high in purines, to ensure that the levels of uric acid in the blood do not get too high. Here is a list of high-purine foods to be wary of: beef kidneys brains dried beans and peas liver mackerel mushrooms lose some weight by walking or other exercise, avoid meats and get always be on a prescribed diet as prescribed by a registered dietitian. I am a registered dietitian, certified diabetes educator and a doctor, consult privately for detailed treatment plans using diet and medications.

Dear , contrary to d old belief n myth that diabetic cannot eat certain fruits. I would say a diabetic can eat all seasonal fruits. Ie even mangoes when in season. D trick however is that you need to eat in them in specific quantities, at specific timings n in d whole fruit form only. Never in d form of a fruit juice or milkshake. Maintain a gap of 2 hrs between consumption of fruit n meal.

Recently I read an article about the effect of wheat on diabetes. In the olden days, in India, diabetics were advised to avoid polished rice, our staple diet, and stick to a diet of wheat and wheat products. The above article highlighted the adverse effects of high-yielding varieties of wheat on diabetes. You will kindly appreciate that traditional varieties of wheat are no longer available. Grateful if you could kindly elaborate.

Though, there are many theories of dietary aspects in diabetes. But, nothing is accepted worldwide. Food preferences varies with region and even in our vast country rice is the staple diet in the east and south whereas wheat is mainly consumed in north and west. There have been studies, but none has shown any correlation with the staple cereal on diabetes prevalence. Many authors have blamed rice and claimed wheat based diet regimen for diabetic reversal, and vice-versa, but did not mention any conclusive evidence for the same. Current guidelines only mentions whole grains with high fibre content rather than processed foods.

there are not permanent solution for it..be on medicines..manege life style only...Drink at least 8-10 glasses of water every day. Drinking water at intervals keeps your body hydrated so that uric acid crystals do not form at all. A healthy intake of water can help flush excess uric acid out of the body. Increase your consumption of antioxidant-rich foods like cherries, blueberries, blackberries, grapes and pineapples. They prevent inflammation of the joints and help in the excretion of uric acid. Try apple cider vinegar. Not only is it known to lower uric acid levels, but it also helps to reduce arthritic pain, even when used as a topical application. Stay away from foods that can cause gout or trigger inflammation. These include beans, mushrooms, meat and fish like salmon, mackerel, sardines and crab. Although patients with gout are advised to limit alcohol intake, the best option would be to eliminate it completely. Alcohol not only increases the risk of gout it also increases the severity of symptoms.

Lybrate-user, please clarify whether you want to know how to control weight gain in pregnancy or want to reduce weight even otherwise. Because during pregnancy a gain of 12 to 14 kg weight is natural. Because of uterine size increase, placenta, amniotic fluid, fetus, mothers tissues particularly breast and in general. So weight gain is inevitable and necessary. If you have hypothyroidism and it is not in complete check, then also weight increases. When fully under control tsh should be between 3 to 4 milli units/l. Then only all symptoms are under control. Further, in pregnancy tsh levels should be still lower. Recommended levels are 1st trimester 0.1 to 2 milli units, 2nd trimester 0.3 to 3 milli units & 3rd 0.3 to 3.5 milli units/l. If levels are higher than these then that can lead to improper development of fetus, miscarriages and over all bad out come of pregnancy. If you have any doubts please come back. Thanks.

My neck has black spots and has dark lines I am 10 kg over weight and I do not have diabetes.
First of all focus on losing weight. Overweight people tend to have pigmentation in the folds. Scrub your regularly with good loofah and to lose weight - Don’t worry. You can lose weight easily if you are patient and determined to shed those extra kilos. You just have to alter your daily routine, watch what you eat and be physically active. This requires you to be on your weight loss commitment for quiet long. As soon as you start seeing the results, you will be surprised as well as motivated to go beyond your weight loss and adopt and a lifelong healthy attitude. For a start please follow: 1.Watch what you eat – Are you eating too much junk, drink excessive alcohol and eating too much white food and sugar? Please cut it down to as low as you can from tomorrow. Cut down tea/coffee if you are too addicted to it. It is creating havoc inside your body. 2.Lifestyle – Are you a late sleeper and late riser? You can’t imagine what this schedule of yours is doing to your metabolism. It is degrading your digestive system from inside and your looks from outside. 3.Physically active – If you are a couch potato who loves to watch tv whole day then throw that couch of yours in the street and get yourself a treadmill tomorrow. Yes it is as simple as that. Who is stopping you? You have to be physically active all day long if you want to burn those extra calories. Do daily brisk walk, Pranayam, atleast 20 surayanamaskar everyday to start seeing the results. Take break between office work to walk a little or rather just climb some stairs to get that food you ate in lunch have space and heat to digest and absorb. What’s the harm in using your washroom to do a little middle of the day squats. Do that – No one is watching you. The key is to stay physically active all day long, no matter what. 4.Eat healthy and eat on time: Not only eating healthy is important but eating at right time is equally imp too. Have an early breakfast and early dinner and have 4 small meals between breakfast and dinner. To guide you a bit, here you go: a.Breakfast (Between 8-10 a.m) – Have oats/porridge or brown bread with milk and nuts. B.At 11 a.m - Cup of Green Tea c.Mid day meal (around 12 p.m) – Have a bowl of fruits. Citrus fruits are best taken during this hour and absorb well in the body. Have oranges, amla, pineapple etc during this hour. D.Lunch (between 2-3 p.m) – Daal, roti,mix veg, buttermilk and salad. You can also take brown rice with daal in lunch. Try to get your food cooked in olive oil. Lace your salad with apple cider vinegar, black pepper and seeds like flaxseeds or chia seeds to make it nutrition packed lunch. E.Between 4 p.m – 5 p.m – Cup of Green Tea f.Evening (4-6 p.m) – Have some nice sprouts with tomatoes and cucumber. G.Dinner (2 hours before sleeping, preferably before 9 p.m) – Paneer & veggies salad with olive oil, Roti or brown rice with Daal. H.Have a glass of warm milk.
