Dear lybrate user with the limited amount of information provided it appears that you are concerned about your father's diabetes. It could had been better had you provided us with last prescription, latest fasting sugars, hba1c levels and any other recent relevant investigations along with the complete medication list. For the successful treatment of diabetes it is advised if he can start exercising on a regular basis preferably 30-45 minutes, diet modifications with low carbohydrate and high fibre diet along with medications as advised. Hope that solves your query. Anything more then please feel free to revert.

You need to have diet plan based on your bmi & activities. Whatever we eat is metabolised by the body for the energy needed to do daily work and the excess is stored as fat. Abdomen is the first place to gain weight and last to disappear. In brief, weight reduction can be achieved only by reducing the intake of food 1/3 of what you take now. And by appropriate exercise plans for each part like belly, thighs, legs / chest etc. To burn off fat. Some tips 1) drink three or four cups of water whenever you feel hungry and just before eating food 2) take boiled or raw vegetable like cucumber, carrot etc. As half of your diet. Then take 1/2 of your total diet as sprouted pulses / proteinaceous food like roti, cooked pulses and remaining with rice or other carbohydrates. Oil or ghee etc. Should be just bare minimum. And do aerobic exercises, running, jogging or at least walking briskly 3-5 kms and swimming if possible, and in a gym if feasible. The most important is to burn off the energy intake by exercises. There is no short cut or medicines without exercise & dieting to take just as mush food as needed for your activities. The food we eat is utilised for our energy needs and the remaining will be stored as fat which leads to obesity. It is better to do some tests.

I have diabetes and sugar is very high from last couple of days. I also get hypoglycemia at times. What to do?

I have diabetes and sugar is very high from last couple of days. I also get hypoglycemia at times. What to do?
No details about actual blood sugar levels and medications being taken. High sugar at the same times Hypoglycemia meaning low sugar state suggests the management and treatment is not satisfactory. You should get your present blood sugar levels on Fasting, 1 1/2 hours after morning principal meal and before dinner. Show it to a Physician or a Diabetologist who is treating you. Always follow the instructions with discipline regarding Diet, timing, quantity, exercise and medications. You should approach the doctor frequently for follow up and sugar lvel monitoring. Physician will make necessary changes depending on situation.

Agnesji, I am not aware if hypothyroidism increases blood pressure. Your blood pressure particularly systolic seems to be varying quite a bit, it is not good. Appropriate medication should settle it. Ideally on treatment bp should 130 / 80 mm hg, altering present drugs or adding some new compound should be able to help in reducing the systolic pressure. You also control hypothyroidism effectively (maintaining tsh between 3 to 4 milli units/ml). That will help in over all well being.

My mom is of 42 age and she is a diabetes and blood pressure patient but both are in control now. She is taking allopathic and Ayurvedic medicines to control both diabetes and blood pressure.

Ayurvedic medicines together with allopathic medicines can sometimes cause drug interactions. Hence allopathic doctors usually do not know about the content of ayurvedic medicines, it will be very difficult to find out what kind of interactions are there. It could be very harmful for the body. It is better you stick to one of them.

I am sure you are on proper medicines for diabetes, if so then you have to continue. Also avoid sweets, direct sugar, deep fried foods, fruits like mango, banana, grapes, chikkoos. Take lot of salads, green vegetables, whole grain flour prepared breads (rotis, chapatis), fruits like papaya, apples, guava, pomogranate, oranges, pear etc. Maintain weight near normal and exercise for more than 1 h a day. Keep checking blood sugar levels periodically.

A level TSH 100 shows a highly uncontrolled hypothyroidism. The direct evidence for controlled hypothyroidism is a normal report of tsh which shows that it is within range. If the tsh is higher than the upper range then the dose will be increased and if the tsh is lower than the lower range then the dose will decreased. If the tsh is within range then you have controlled hypothyroid state and the dose will be carried on as such. Currently if she is on any medicine then the dose needs to be escalated and if she is not on any medicine then she needs to be started ASAP.

A diabetic person also need to attend counselling session along with their medications. Her symptoms are part of the illness. Besides this, it must be difficult for you to manage with your mother's doubting nature. It may not be possible to control everything but only those things that are under your control. Some things you may have to live with and in this case you need to know how to manage and cope with it. Counselling will help you to find this balance and tools to manage your issues in the best way. If you have any queries about this please contact me on private chat.

If blood sugar level is high there will be more urination so her sleep is disturbed. With correct medications blood sugar can be controlled.
