lybrate-user, thanks for the query. If Fasting blood glucose is equal to or above 126 mg then it is considered as Diabetes, similarly PP equal to or above 200 mg is confirmed diabetes. In this situation treatment with anti diabetes drungs is necessary. Plus diet restrictions and exercise are also important. Thanks.

No permanent cure antibodies suggest that it is of aito-immune origin suggesting all the more that you will need treatment for long time its treatable not curable. You need to take thyronorm and follow up every 6 weeks.

You can take Nutrient-rich foods that improve your health may also benefit your thyroid gland, antioxidant-rich fruits and vegetables more plenty of water: Blueberries, tomatoes, bell peppers, and other foods rich in antioxidants can improve overall health and benefit the thyroid gland. Eating foods high in B vitamins, like whole grains, may also help. Selenium: Tiny amounts of selenium are needed for enzymes that make thyroid hormones to work properly. Eating selenium-rich foods, such as sunflower seeds or Brazil nuts, can be beneficial. Tyrosine: This amino acid is used by the thyroid gland to produce T3 and T4. Taking a supplement may help, avoid oily foods,junk foods, go for walk. Tests every 3 to 6 months.i.e. t3,t4,tsh, also do vit.D. and vit. B., s.calcium.

How to differentiate whether low sugar or high sugar? What precautions to be taken? What are the remedies?

How to differentiate whether low sugar or high sugar? What precautions to be taken? What are the remedies?
One has to check blood sugar to find out if he or she has low or high sugar. If a person has been diagnosed to have diabetes, means his blood sugar is higher than normal. High blood sugar can only be detected by testing the blood, because it hardly produces any specific symptoms unless the levels have really gone very high. Low blood sugar (hypoglycemia) can occur in a patient on treatment for diabetes, who may had not taken adequate food, or there may be delay in taking food after taking tablets or insulin or dose may have been high. This causes drop in blood sugar. When it goes below 6o to 70 mg/100 ml, the person starts feeling uneasy, may get blurred vision, feeling of weakness, shivering, sweating, giddiness, hungry and at times black out. For treating high sugar one has to take anti diabetes drugs. To treat hypoglycemia one should be given glucose immediately.

Mr. Lybrate-user, in my opinion honey is not recommended in a diabetes patient, as it is another form of sucrose. It contains 50% fructose + 50% glucose. Plus some vitamins and antioxidants. Suppose if some one still wants to use it, then there has to be a very strict blood sugar control with fasting around 100 mg, pp 150 to 160 mg, hba1c% <6.8. Thanks for the question.

Hi My uric acid is 6.02 .Is it in normal range. Or shall I have to take medication for it.

PDDM, MHA, MBBS
General Physician, Nashik
Hi My uric acid is 6.02 .Is it in normal range. Or shall I have to take medication for it.
Normal Uric acid levels are 2.4-6.0 mg/dL (female) and 3.4-7.0 mg/dL (male). The first thing you should do is to eat foods that are high in fiber, This is because fiber rich foods absorb uric acid from the blood. Your kidneys then 'throw' out the excess uric acid. Try to eat Oatmeal, Spinach, cauliflowers and Isabgol in milk if possible.  Please use olive oil to cook your food. Kindly avoid vegetable oils because they become unhealthy when heated twice. This leads to rancid fat in the body. These destroy vitamin E, that in turn controls uric acid levels. Olive oil also curbs uric acid by itself.  Vitamin C chewable tablets taken 500 mg daily lower uric acid levels within 4 to 8 weeks.  Try to stop intake of sweets, cakes and pastries. Saturated fats are bad for you.  Many fruits have got potent anti-oxidant properties, like celery seeds, grapes and tomatoes, and these prevent harmful toxins from attacking your organs - releasing uric acid.
