No you should reduce the dose gradually. And repeat the test at regular interval. If you want to stop treatment then first take homoeopathic treatment to cure it.

Your father has kidney failure that is why advised dialysis. Unfortunately there is no other way to treat this condition. It gives immediate relief to the patient hence do not be afraid of it. It is a supportive treatment before kidney transplant. Keep his diabetes controlled.

Her bp 160/80 .Diabetic nephropathy with nephrotic range proteinuria. Doctor suggested telmisartan 80 mg with hydrochlorothiazide 12.5 mg. Sir my query is hydrochlorothiazide safe in diabetes as it impairs glucose tolerance further and alters lipid profile. Please suggest fluid and protein salt restrictions.

As a MBBS student you need to control diabetes even more strictly and you can discuss all details with treating physician frankly. Hee may have reason for his suggestion and all drugs have some complications and if the benefits outweigh the risks we recommend the drug .Hydrochlorothiazide is a diuretic that treats water retention by reducing the amount of salt absorbed by the body. This is especially important in patients with high blood pressure, kidney disorders and diabetes. Diabetes is a metabolic disease characterized by high levels of sugar in the bloodstream.

Hello lybrate-user. Your TSH level is very high. Thyroid medicines shouldn't have been stopped. They are to be taken for lifetime. Your symptoms are because of the thyroid. Consult an endocrinologist or if there isn't one consult a medical specialist.

Dear lybrate-user Madam, Having Diabetes is like having a heart condition inspite of you not having it. So the idea is to keep your sugars in the normal range as much as possible.
