Lybrate-user, he needs to be put on insulin injections right away, under the care of competent diabetologist. Multiple doses in a day will be needed. Plus daily monitoring of blood glucose at home is (smbg) needed. It is serious condition if appropriate care is not taken consequences can be very serious. Please do not waste any time.

Since the TSH is high it needs proper correction. Please check if you are taking the medicines regularly. It is also important for you to adapt a healthy lifestyle which can help the body to adjust naturally and thereby help in controlling the fluctuations. You can discuss with your doctor and go for regular health check ups. You can also add Homeopathy which is safe and does not interfere with the current treatment. It will enhance the natural healing mechanism (to recovery faster ). You can contact me for a detailed consultation.
