If diabetes is in control you can have it! If you feel that sugar is increasing than stop it! Once a week is ok.

Mr Manjunath, Along with taking appropriate medicines are exercising regularly for more than 1 hour a day? That is vey important as it increases Insulin action and helps reduce resistance to its action. Plus taking a balanced and restricted diet providing exact calories based on Ideal Body Weight, blood sugar levels and extent of daily exercise. These measure are also equally essential. Plus there may be a need to have a re look at present treatment and additional therapy may be needed.

What you have stated is suggestive of gastro oesophagial regurgitation disorder, or in simple word the secretions from your stomach ascend back in the food pipe called oesophagus in the chest. This secretion is acidic and when it reaches throat, it produces sour taste in mouth and burning sensation. You should eat small meals some 2 hours before going to bed. Raise the head end of your bed by about 4 to 6 inches. You may need some prokinetic and proton pump inhibitor drugs if there is no relief. You may consult privately.

What is the normal range of TSH. How thyroid will impact on health. Can you please explain me sir?

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Mr. Lybrate-user, normal range of tsh is 0.3 to 6 milli units/ml. Usually tsh level between 6 to 10 milli units/ml is considered sub clinical hypothyroidism. Above 10 milli units/ml, treatment is indicated. Thyroxine hormone secreted by thyroid gland is an essential hormone, needed for development and functioning of brain, required for almost every single metabolic activity in the body. Deficiency causes multiple symptoms affecting various organs and systems. Usually seen symptoms are slow heart rate, swelling of face nd lower limbs, dry skin. Dry hair, hair fall, weight gain, in females irregularity of menstrual cycle, excess flow, difficulty in becoming pregnant, improper outcome of pregnancy, difficulty in speech, inability to concentrate, anxiety, depression, early fatigue and tiredness etc. If not treated it can lead to more serious condition called myxdema.

You need to maintain your tsh between 1 &2 for a proper control. Then you will start losing weight. Also exercise only on empty stomach. That will solve your problem.

How to reduce thyroid and how to maintain the thyroid level in body and what are the symptoms of it.

How to reduce thyroid and how to maintain the thyroid level in body and what are the symptoms of it.
Hi  First: medicines are mandatory.  Otherwise ypu might have weight gain, muscle ache, sleep and anxiety issues as well as gynaecological and cardiac issues later. You need to get an USG neck done  and an FNAC USG guided of thyroid gland. FT3/FT4/TSH  If you have already done these tests Share on Lybrate I can help you better. Any history of alcohol  intake /fatty food /sugary food How much exercise do you get done every day? Ideally you should be doing a good mix of cardio, weights and crossfit  exercises to keep you healthy Together  with a balanced diet with optimum  healthy fat protein and carbs.  Avoid  deep fried fatty food and fast food. No soft drinks /sugary drinks. I am outlining  food you should avoid or restrict in Hypothyroidism. It's important  you maintain  your body weight exercise regularly. Weight gain increases thyroid hormone requirements.  Avoid cruciferous   group of veggies  like cabbage and broccoli. Avoid soya bean in all forms. No soya, nugget, chunk, tofu or milk. Limit their intake: Brussels sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower, kale, turnips, and bok choy. Cooking the vegetables can reduce the effect that cruciferous vegetables have on the thyroid gland. Limiting your intake to 5 ounces a day appears to have no adverse effect on thyroid function. Decrease gluten  intake from processed  food. Always try whole grain varieties of cereals which is rich in fibres and help improve  bowels (Take your thyroid replacement  medicine several hours before or several hours after food rich in fibres. Otherwise problem  with absorption  of hormone. 20 to 35 gram of fibres daily from all sources. Avoid excessive fatty (deep fried) and sugary food as hypothyroidism  causes your metabolism  to slow down &weight gain. Avoid highly salted food, chips, pickles, sauces as they Contain  large amount of sodium. Hypothyroidism  puts you at risk of high BP and excess sodium in salt aggravates Coffee  in excess. And coffee with thyroid hormone  replacement  can prevent absorption.  Alcohol. It is toxic to thyroid gland and prevents  hormone production and absorption. The problems of hypothyroidism  gets better with medicines, diet and exercise.  You will start  Better as the levels of your hormone normalises.  Initially  you need to do the TSH test every 6 weeks till normal TSH then every 3 months Diet /EXERCISE/Medicines/Sleep/meditation: 5 pillars of health needed to live the healthiest Hope this helps Take care

Hello Sir, It is very likely that you do have Diabetes. But, just based on one blood test report, a doctor should not diagnose Diabetes. Physical stress or mental stress can cause raised blood glucose levels. I would advise you to get your Fasting blood glcuose, your 2 hour post breakfast blood glucose and HbA1C levels checked after you recover from your cold. If these results are elevated, then you are having diabetes. I hope this answer has been helpful to you Kind regards.

Fruit salad and blood sugar estimation by glucometer do not mix.
Eating fruits with fingers and doing blood sugar by glucometer without washing fingers with soap and water can give high blood sugar just by sugar sticking to fingers.Even cleaning finger tips with alcohol swab will not help.If eaten fruit with fingers,then wash your hand first before doing blood sugar by glucometer.

Mr. Lybrate-user, some times if blood sugar is not well controlled, one may get a problem called gastroparesis, where there may be repeated nausea and vomiting, hearburn, early fullness. First and foremost is to have excellent blood sugar control - fasting around 100 mg, pp 150 to 160 mg, hba1c%<6.8. Better to shift to insulin if sugar control is not properly achieved. Plus take small quantity of meals more number of times (6 meals a day), with total intake being well controlled.

If a normal indvidual takes insulin then blood sugar goes critically down or precipitate hypoglycemia. It could be fatal sometimes. Hypoglycemia symptoms are palpitations, tremors, sweating, confusion etc in sever case coma and death. Without diabetologist or physicians prescription it is difficult to get insulin injections. Imo he is not taking insulin.
