It is not possible for u to live without insulin as your pancreas is not working properly. Few medicines will work to activate your pancreas to produce more insulin. Consult for details. Also send your details like your weight. Hba1c status. Daily insulin dose. Cause of pancreatitis. Old reports of ct abdomen n also usg.

Single report of sugar level is not conclusive. You can go for Fasting and PPBS and HbA1c and after getting the reports you might have to start lifestyle modifications in terms of excercises and if needed medications

Naturally sugar is present in many of foods which we have daily not only rice, potato or sweets. Don't require to eliminate any particular food from your diet. Just avoid simple carbs, sweet products, fruits which are high in sugar content. You need a well balanced diet to manage blood sugar level. You may contact me for detailed diet plan.

Sonuji, Hypothyroidism is a condition that needs to be treated for life time. So if treatment has been stopped, then restart immediately. Dose of thyroxine has to be based on TSH levels (present) and body weight. Plus follow all instructions regarding the dosage.

Can a diabetics person consume Dates, and if yes then what is the consumption per day?
Hello, Dates are a good source of fibre, energy, antioxidants minerals and vitamins. But it has glucose in considerable amounts too. Hence if you consume too many of them it would raise your blood glucose levels. I would suggest you can take about 3 medium sized dates in a day. Thank you.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for your query. I have gone through all the details given including lab values. All the values seem to be well within normal limits, except SGOT & SGPT. Both are slightly high, signifying some affection of liver functions. It points to one thing clearly that is to reduce alcohol intake. It should be preferably one or two days in a week plus much lesser in quantity. Thanks.

I am having thyroid since March 2016. Don't want to take any allopathic medicine. Putting on weight. Kindly help me.
Lybrate-user, if any one has hypothyroidism, then only way to treat it is to take thyroxine hormone as a replacement. The condition occurs due to deficiency of thyroxine hormone produced by thyroid gland. This hormone is required for development and functioning of brain on day to day basis. Plus it is necessary for multiple metabolic activities in the body. If not provided (as tablets of thyroxine) then considerable problems occur including weight gain, slow heart rate, tired feeling, early fatigue, lack of interest, dry hair, dry skin and hair fall, difficulty in speech, inability to concentrate, swelling of face and lower limbs, irregular periods and excess flow, irritability, anxiety and depression. Only remedy for this is taking thyroixine tablets for life time. There are no other options. Choice is yours. Thanks.

If the gangrene happens in the leg N th patient had the diabetic also What treatment like v had to do.

If the gangrene happens in the leg N th patient had the diabetic also What treatment like v had to do.
Hey. Well if the patient is diabetic and he is having gangrene in his leg, then there is less chance that he would be benefited by using intravenous antibiotics and regular dressings. Mostly, an amputation is done, so that the infection does not spread to other parts of leg. If you are having this problem, then please visit a surgeon near you, so that he can do the needful at the earliest. Please do not ignore this. I hope you understand. Take good care.

For a diabetic it is best advised to have a diet planned as per the sugar levels, lifestyle and history. You have to initially take the medicines to bring the sugar levels down. Once you are able to manage sugar levels you can taper off the medication dose. Also you are not advised to start any exercise till your sugar levels don't come down. Though you can follow some guidelines - have small frequent meals. Do not fast for long hours. Avoid a very heavy meal at one time. Avoid fruit juices, aerated drinks or sugarcane juice, honey, jaggery or sugar. Avoid junk foods. Exercise and stay active. Do not attempt to try out too many remedies as you could go into hypoglycaemia. Sleep well. It's all a matter of discipline.

I have thyroid  problem. how to control or what are the medications? Please help me.
Take diet for hypothyroidism:- high-carbohydrate foods such as potatoes, rice, pasta and bread, 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. flax oil, 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 few foods in hypothroidism i.e. caffeine products tea,coffee, tabcco, alcohol / wine , kale, broccoli, spinach, mustard green, cabbage, turnip, millet, cassava, linseeds, pine nuts, soy products as soy milk, tofu, soybeans, soy souce, also avoid stress. Take Some Relax during work. Proper follow up you can feel better and reduce weight also.
