How often should I test my blood sugar, and what should I do if it is too high or too low?

MBBS, DNB (General Medicine)
Endocrinologist, Delhi
How often should I test my blood sugar, and what should I do if it is too high or too low?
Your question doesn't state whether you are a diabetic or not. So I will answer for both situations. If you are not a diabetic, fasting sugar twice on separate occasions is enough to know whether you need to be tested further for diabetes or not. Cut off value for fasting sugar is 126 mg/dl. If sugar on 2 occasions is beyond this then you need treatment. If on the other hand you are a diabetic, then you need a much more extended profile. You need 4 readings in a day to know the trend of your control. Fasting, 2 hrs after breakfast, 2 hrs after lunch and 2 hrs after dinner. I would recommend that you depend on your physician for management of these reports. But if the sugar at anytime is below 70mg/dl then immediately take glucose for avoiding crisis.

Lybrate-user, the levels mentioned are too high, shows totally uncontrolled diabetes. If you are on treatment, it is clear the current treatment is not helpful or grossly inadequate. Needs immediate improvement. Plus I see that you are having a bmi of 34.09 kgs/m2, showing grade 1 obesity. This also contributes to increased blood sugar. So there needs to be - efforts to reduce weight, additional treatment and proper diet control and exercise. With this multi pronged approach we will be able to bring situation under control. Thanks for the question.

My mother is 46 years old, she has come to know that she is suffering from thyroid. please give me suggestion what to eat and what not to eat and other tips.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Mr. Lybrate-user, by saying" she is suffering from thyroid" are referring to hypothyroidism? because thyroid is a normal gland present is all of us, which produces hormone thyroxine. So please clarify that. If she has hypothyroidism, then she has to avoid soy beans, soy containing products, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, radish, peanuts, mustard and coffee. She should use whole grain flour for roti and chapati, avoid maida and products made of that. Should consume more of green leafy vegetables, salads and fruits. Should exercise daily for 1 hour and take a restricted diet. Thanks.

Hi Recurrent boils needs to be best managed with strict control of diabetes, antibiotics and drainage of the boil if it is big. The pus needs to be cultured. He can take paracetamol for his pain but draining the boil would give him more relief. Pain in the left lower abdomen in men can be from the testes, please see if he has any infection there. If its crampy pain it can be because of diarrhea, gas, indigestion.

Dear lybrate user, only home remedies may not be sufficient enough to lower your blood sugar level. If home remedies could lower the blood sugar then there won't be such worldwide research on diabetes. Home remedies help to confine your blood sugar level to a certain extent. But if you want to lower your blood sugar level then you will surely need some medicine. We need detailed history to prescribe you suitable medicine. *Maintain healthy body weight by doing regular exercise like yoga. *Eat small amount of foods. Do not skip meals. *Take 5-6 times foods with small amount. *Avoid fast foods. No sugar, cola, soft drinks etc. *Drink plenty of water specially before meals. No underground vegetables etc. * Extra fish, lean meat etc will help you. *Avoid smoking, alcohol

Mr. lybrate-user, If the patient is regularly taking prescribed medicine and also following diet restriction and exercise schedule, then blood glucose does come down. That is what is seen with the patient. It means due to current medication diabetes is under control. But to remain in that good control, treatment has to be continued for lifetime. Plus periodic check ups should also be done. If you stop medication now, blood glucose levels will go high and can cause severe problems. Thanks.

Mr. Lybrate-user, to effectively control diabetes first and foremost is to take appropriate drugs, as prescribed by the doctor with out missinga dose. Exercise regularly for 1 hour a day so as to maintain weight and improve insulin action, reduce resistance to its action. Plus take a restricted diet based on ideal body weight, blood sugar levels, and extent of daily exercise. Thses things together will help in controlling diabetes. All the best.

For weight gain proper nutrition is a must. 1) you can start including more milk, cow ghee, fruits & vegetables in your diet. 2) stop eating junk & processed food. 3) make a habit of consuming one well ripen banana with a cup of warm milk with a tsp of ghee. 4) eat soaked dry grapes or dates soaked in warm milk over night. 5) boost up your apettite by working out daily for atleast 30 mins. 6) massaging whole body with vata balancing herbal oil (ksheerabala oil) is very beneficial 7) reducing stress level, sleeping comfortably for long hours and afternoon naps are very essential to increase body mass.

Hello if diabetes is not in proper control, it affects almost every system of the body particularly retina, kidneys, nerves and heart. Alcohol in excess adds to the problems. It gives extra calories without any benefits. Damages liver in turn glucose and fat metabolism. It masks hypoglycemia symptoms causing serious difficulty. Can affect your overall fitness. In long-term liver damage along with chronic complications of diabetes will be very bad.

My mother is 30 years old and she is suffering from uric acid problem from many months. What is solution of this problem.

MBBS, MD - Internal Medicine
Internal Medicine Specialist, Faridabad
A high uric acid level can be caused when your body either produces too much uric acid or your kidneys don't eliminate uric acid rapidly enough. A high uric acid level may cause increasingly frequent attacks of gout, or it may never cause problems. A high uric acid level may also cause some people to develop kidney stones or kidney failure. And some people with a high uric acid level also develop high blood pressure, heart disease or chronic kidney disease, but it's often unclear whether this is a direct cause or merely an early warning sign of these conditions. Factors that may cause a high uric acid level in your blood include: Diuretic medications (water pills),Drinking too much alcohol,Genetics (inherited tendencies),hypothyroidism (underactive thyroid),Immune-suppressing drugs,Niacin, or vitamin B-3, obesity,psoriasis, Purine-rich diet — organ meat, game meat, anchovies, herring, gravy, dried beans, driedpeas, mushrooms and other foods Renal insufficiency — inability of the kidneys to filter waste Tumor lysis syndrome — a rapid release of cells into the blood caused by certain cancers or by chemotherapy for those cancers,Also, you may be monitored for high uric acid levels when undergoing chemotherapy or radiation treatment for cancer. Avoid protein diets, avoid more milk products. bad habits , fast food/fat/oily,salty foods. Coffee, smoking, alcohol intake. Non-veg., take whole grain,oats,green veg.,plenty of water in day time, 1 glass of water at night before bed. Take tab. Zyloric 100 mg once a day. Tab. Ulracet sos for pain in joints.

Diabetes With Hypothyroidism And Hyperthyroidism

MBBS, MD - Internal Medicine
Internal Medicine Specialist, Faridabad
Diabetes With Hypothyroidism And Hyperthyroidism
You'll want to see your endocrinologist (endocrine system, remember?) or primary care physician asap. You may be referred to a doctor who specializes in thyroid issues (as opposed to diabetes), but your endocrinologist will know exactly how to diagnosis you. The primary way to diagnose thyroid disease is something called a tsh (thyrotropin stimulating hormone) test, which checks the amount of thyroid-stimulating hormone in your system. It's a very easy and inexpensive blood test, so don't delay if you think you have symptoms!

However, sometimes the test will come back false-normal, so testing for antibodies or having a full thyroid panel can also turn up things that the tsh test might leave out.

Autoimmune thyroid diseases, like hashimoto's disease, are usually much easier to manage than diabetes. The hormone replacement treatment comes in pill form, so taking the medication is easy-peasey. But some patients have difficulty finding the right type of thyroid replacement pill. While there are two types of natural thyroid hormones, called t3 and t4, only t4 is found in the common thyroid replacements. For many people, this doesn't work well. In theory, t4 medication would also convert to t3, but research suggests this doesn't always happen. You'll want to do your homework and make sure you get on the right treatment for you!

Patient lindsay o'rourke writes on the tu diabetes group for hypothyroidism "I went on my generic prescription, levothroid, and even at a very low dose it was an extreme difference. I felt back to normal. My energy was back, and a slew of other symptoms went away."

Hyperthyroidism can be treated with anti-thyroid medicines such as methimazole (tapazole) and propylthiouracil (ptu), but the most common way of treating hyperthyroidsim is radioactive iodine therapy. Weirdly, it kills off the thyroid, causing permanent hypothyroidism.
