Mr. Lybrate-user, these are only vitamins (benfotiamine, chromium is and b12,) lipoleic acid is an anti oxidant, chromium picolinate is a micronutrient, helps insulin action in every one plus essential for various other functions. These drugs are given as additional or supportive therapy and to treat nevous system related symptoms. These are not exclusively for diabetes. If you feel there are side effects because of that, stop the dose. Effects will go away.

Without intervention, 25-40% prediabetes are likely to become type 2 diabetes in 10 years or less. If you have prediabetes, the long-term damage of diabetes — especially to your heart and circulatory system — may already be starting. With healthy lifestyle changes — such as eating healthy foods, including physical activity in your daily routine and maintaining a healthy weight — you may be able to bring your blood sugar level back to normal. If you can lose weight by 3-4 kg, you may come back to normal from prediabetes.

High blood sugar level is really harmful. You should take proper medication, restricted diet and regular exercises. If it is not controlled by allopathic medicines it is better to switch over to insulin or ayurvedic medicines in support.

Dear Lybrate User, One of the major nutritional substance required for human body is carbohydrate. We take carbohydrate in the form of rice, wheat, sugar etc. The complex molecules of carbohydrate are broken down into simple glucose molecules during digestion & released in the blood stream to be absorbed by the muscle cells. Muscle cells utilise the glucose molecules to release energy by breaking down those glucose molecules. Insulin hormone plays a vital role in the absorption of the glucose molecules by the muscle cells. In abnormal conditions, either due to less production of insulin or due to resistance to insulin, the process of absorption of glucose by the muscles comes to a stand still. The glucose molecules remains in the bloodstream which results in the increase in the blood sugar level. The failure of utilisation of the glucose molecules by the muscle cells results in production of less energy than normal condition. This is externally manifested as the fatigue & tiredness of the patient. This excess amount of blood sugar compels the kidney to function more than normal level in order to excrete the blood sugar molecules through urine. As a result the patient suffers from frequent urination. This abnormal condition is clinically known as DIABETES MELLITUS. Once a patient is diagnosed with Diabetes he has to take regular medicine to keep his blood sugar level within normal limits. However, the patient does not need to take medicine unless his/her Post. Prandial Blood Sugar level reaches 200. If Post. Prandial Blood Sugar level reaches 200 then patient should take the following Homoeopathic medications:- 1)Homeopathic URANIUM NIT 3X TABLETS (R.S. BHARGAVA company). Take one tablet thrice daily, in empty stomach 2) 30 drops of Homeopathic Mother Tincture GYMNEMA SYLVESTRA Q, thrice daily, after meals, in a cup of water Along with intake of medicines the patient need to walk at least 1 hour daily without any interval. In order to decrease the intake of carbohydrate in diet the patient should avoid rice, sweet dishes, fruits, cold drinks, fast foods, alcoholic beverages, potato etc

Hello,Hashimoto's disease is also known as chronic lymphatic thyroiditis. It can occur at any age, but it’s most common in middle-aged women. The disease occurs when the body's immune system mistakenly attacks and slowly destroys the thyroid gland and its ability to produce hormones. Some people with mild cases of Hashimoto's disease may have no obvious symptoms. Symptoms include: fatigue depression constipation mild weight gain dry skin dry, thinning hair pale, puffy face heavy and irregular menstruation intolerance to cold enlarged thyroid (goiter) Hashimoto’s disease is an autoimmune disorder.There is no known cure for Hashimoto's disease. Hormone-replacing medication is often used to raise thyroid hormone levels or lower TSH levels.

Mr. Lybrate-user, persons with hypothyroidism should avoid soy beans, soy containing products, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, radish, peanuts and coffee. You can consume a great deal of green leafy vegetables, salads, fruits and use whole grain flour for chapati and roti, no refined flour like maida. Strive to maintain tsh level around 3 to 4 milli units/ml.

Since you are in your pre diabetic condition you should avoid sugar and all sugar products. Diabetes occurs because of insulin resistance. Which generally happens by eating too much of sugars, processed and refined foods like maida, noodles, white rice and its products. Etc etc. Stress and inactivity also leads to insulin resistance. So stop all the refined and processed foods. Packed foods like biscuits should also be refrained from. Eat a lot vegetables in cooked and salad form, eat whole grains like jawar, bajra, oats, add good quality proteins like eggs, fish chicken, paneer, curd, dals to your diet. Exercise well and remain stress free.

Your TSH value is 7.19 and its definitely out of range. If your report had been greater than 10 - then I would have recommended you to start treatment with thyroid replacement medicines straight-away but the guideline for treatment in your case where TSH is less than 10 is to correlate with another test with the name of ANTI-TPO. If ANTI-TPO is also way above range then you definitely need treatment for hypothyroidism. Your serum Creatinine is 1.3. Its not a cause for worry. Amongst the parameters tested in KFT it is Serum creatinine that is most commonly focussed by both doctors and patients. Serum creatinine is a byproduct of protein metabolism in the body. It's normal values differs for ages, for sex and for your body state of health. Hence unless it is very much out of range you don't needy to worry much because at low levels it fluctuates.

Mr. Lybrate-user, the medicines being taken are quite safe, hence can be continued for long time. Whether for life time is difficult to answer. Because as one get old, blood glucose control varies. Similarly kidney function may get affected due to diabetes itself. Periodic assessment is always required. Thanks.
