lybrate-user, Fasting 189 mg is high. Ideally when in control blood glucose should be: FBG:closer to 100 mg, PP 150 to 160 mg & HbA1c% <6.8. Good blood glucose control depends on - appropriate drug & dose selection, pluse daily regular exercise, weight control and exact quantity of food intake. A doctor can only guide, but it is the patient who has to follow every single instruction meticulously. In your case it is necessary to first target the fasting glucose level and bring it closer to 100 mg, by adjusting night time insulin dosage. Then we will have to look at PP & pre lunch and pre dinner levels. Plus a close look has to be given to diet and extent of exercise. Thanks.

if parents have it then children are most likely to get it. One can not escape. However, it is also a lifestyle dependent disease, so if one adapts a healthy and regulated or modified life style then can prevent it. So if you want to remain free from t2dm then follow these guidelines - 1) exercise regularly for more than one h a day, 2) maintain weight near normal, 3) refrain from deep fried food, junk food and pastries etc 4) caloric intake should match the needs of your body.

Hi, since you are diabetic use whole grains and complex carbs and essential fatty aacids like omega-3. Below are some tips for weight gain. If you want to gain weight, you need to combine a balanced eating pattern with regular physical activity. You should be eating at least 6 small meals a day, rather than sticking to 3 square meals. You could divide it as 3 main meals and 3 snacks. You need to be eating every 2-3 hours. Space out snacks during the day so you don't spoil your appetite. Bread, cereal, rice, whole wheat, dalia and pasta: biscuits, and corn-bread are good sources of carbohydrates. Fruits: dried fruits, fruit nectars, and large quantities of fresh fruits vegetables: include, potatoes, peas, corn in your diet. Meat, poultry, fish, dry beans, eggs, and nuts: beef, pork, lamb, poultry, salmon, omelets, nuts, peanut butter, kidney beans, chickpeas will help you gain weight. Include dairy products like milk, yogurt, and cheese: milk, fruited yogurts, hard cheeses, ice cream, puddings, custards, milkshakes. -nuts and seeds make a healthy option for snacks. -roasted channas and peanuts are good -peanut butter on the sandwiches are a great mid-meal choice. -you must know that cereals actually contain some healthy calories. Stay hydrated: drinking plenty of water and other fluids like juices, milk, soups etc, will work in your favour. Do not drink water before a meal and in between the meal as it may make you lose your appetite, thus calorie intake suffers. Sleep: at least 8 hours of sound sleep is a must. Since your body is actually building up muscles, while you rest.

My wife is in 8 month pregnancy ,her sugar level fasting is 117 and PP is 150 . Is this fearable one ? How to back to normal? if she takes insulin , will it affect the foetus ? if she takes insulin injection , will she become dependent to the insulin? after delivery will it be back to normal?

Repeat her fbs/ppbs if you have doubts about this repprt. If she takes insulin now, she will not be dependant on it for the rest of her life but she might or might not have to take oral meds after pregnancy.It will depend on her blood sugar levels after pregnancy.

The treatment of gout is simple. Keep uric acid continuously below 6 to prevent uric acid deposition. Yes diet control helps but, bcoz most gout pts hv a genetic predisposition, diet control will not allow uric acid to be decreased below 6/5 which will control the disease. Most gout pts will require a medicine along with diet control. A common misconception by most doctors is to stop dals, cabbage, spinach etc. But vegetable or plant sources of protein do not convert well to uric acid. If you stop dals and non veg you will hv no source of protein left. If you take your medicine properly, you can even have a bit of non veg too.

lybrate-user, You have a BMI of 33.06 kgs/M2, suggesting grade 1 obesity. This itself can be a main cause for increased lipids. High uric acid also needs to be corrected to help reduce ankle pain. Further, if hypothyroidism is not in control (TSH between 3 to 4 mU/L), then efforts to reduce weight do not succeed. Your HbA1c% shows a good blood glucose control. But if you reduce weight dyslipidemia and diabetes control will be much better and even joint pain will be reduced. For reducing uric acid avoid sea foods like certain fishes, mushrooms, mussels and red meat, sweetened aerated drinks, alcohol. Eggs and dairy products are good. If you have any specific questions please do come back. Thanks.

I hv diagnosed HyperThyroid since 2 year Taking the medicines mentioned below Are harm full?

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Mr. Lybrate-user, usually for hyperthyroidism, anti thyroid medicines are given 18 months to 2 years and stopped. Some times thyroid function returns to normal. If not, if hyperthyroidism continues then other means of treatment are looked at. Which include taking radio active iodine or getting surgery done. There is no mention about medicine or the dosage of it in your query. If you are looking for specific advise, then please give details like current thyroid test details and drug being taken with dosage and come in a private conversation, then I will be able to give specific instructions. Thanks.

Now upper limit of normal fasting blood sugar is 99 mg %. 100 mg - 124 mg % is coded as prediabetic range. Two consecutive fasting samples showing 125 mg or more confirms diabetes mellitus. Accordingly. Your value falls in prediabetic range. This has been done to let the person realise that it is the time he needs to be cautious so as not to cross the fence and become a diabetic.

Hi, my brother is having diabetes, and haemoglobin count is very less. Could you please suggest any tablet that will increase manufacturing of blood in his body looking forward for your response thanks.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Regarding online consultation there are certain points which all should know and follow. 1) the description of the diseases should be complete in all respects, including any tests done and any medicines already taking. Just saying I have diabetes since 10 years and taking metformin cannot help a discerning doctor a scientific advice. 2) your place and name and mail id and phone number should be in the question. It is necessary at times to know where you stay to give a good advice. (for example if there the climate is warm or cold and many other factors) 3) it is necessary to keep in regular touch for some diseases like diabetes and hypertension. So make it a point to be in touch by asking private questions. And repeat the essential point of the previous question to give a continuing answer. All these are said with intention to give a scientifically correct answer and talk as if in a regular consultation about which I am very keen to. 4) for personalised attention and follow up ask privately and it is better to make online payment if you are asked to by the doctor. It involves his time and dedication to give you expert advice after studying your problem. Ask personally in case of doubts about any medical matter. it is not as easy task to control blood sugar in the desired normal range. Whatever we eat is metabolised to sugar in the body to provide energy for our daily activities. For the absolute control, one has to monitor his / her blood sugar at regular intervals (self-monitoring of blood glucose? smbg). Though difficult, this can be done by a glucometer and keep a record. Get an idea of fasting sugar (fbs) and 2 hours after food (ppbs) and check before dinner and after every major food. The basic idea is to reduce the food intake to 1/3 of what you take now. The dictum of sugar control is diet, exercise, diet + medicine and at later stage medicine+ insulin will be needed. For sugar control there is the need for regular advice and follow up. Just one time consultation or advice is not enough to guide a diabetic in scientifically & medically correct manner. For giving you regular follow up you ask me privately with all details like your daily eating pattern and medicines you take. I assure you a proper guidance. If you keep in touch.
