Quest" What is the initial symptoms of diabetes? How can be people be alerted from such type of diseases.
Increase thirst, increased frequency of urination are some initial symptoms of diabetes but it can vary from being completely asymptomatic to non specific symptoms like weakness, tingling in feet, dry mouth, blurry vision, burning during urination. You need to follow a healthy lifestyle to prevent such metabolic diseases.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. When a person has diabetes, hypertension then invariably a few different medications need to be taken. Like hypertension, diabetes also will remain with us for lifetime. Both these conditions can only be controlled. There is NO CURE. So she will have to take medications for lifetime, plus she also has to take a restricted diet and exercise regularly for better control of the blood glucose levels as well as maintaining normal BP. Thanks.

Thyroxine does not interfere with being pregnant. Only caution is - thyroid profile should be within normal range during pregnancy to avoid fatal and maternal consequences. So more frequent testing and thyroxine titration required.

My age is 45 years I am suffering from diabetes please give some suggestion for food plan.

My age is 45 years I am suffering from diabetes please give some suggestion for food plan.
You are a young diabetic. For control of diabetes a three prong strategy is used, that medicine, exercise and diet. I hope you are taking medicine under supervision of a diabetologist. You must do at least one hour of physical exercise every day, it should be combination of walking/ jogging, yoga, and weight training. Diet, the major portion of your diet must be salads and fruits. You must have large quantities of salad (cucumber, radish, little carrot, onion, tomato, raw broccoli, raw cauliflower, mushroom, papaya etc.). Also there every day you must eat adequate amount of protein, egg white, fish and chicken are good for you. Avoid meat as much as possible. Cut down on roti and rice as much as possible. Make salads and protein major part of your diet.

according to your tsh level you can take dose 12.5mcg of thyroxine. Deficiency of thyroxine hormone leading to sluggishness, tired feeling, weight increase, slow heart beats, intolerance to cold, swelling of legs, feet and face, difficulty in concentrating and at times in speech. Treatment for hypothyroidism is giving ' THYROXINE ' tablets. And dose are according to level of thyroid for life time. Avoid iron medicines. Avoid bad habits . Avoid stress. Some Relax during work.go walk daily.avoid oily foods,junk foods. Do Tests T3,T4,TSH EVERY 3 TO 6 MONTHS. Take plenty of water, 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 can help,

I do not think diabetes can have any issue while using Aloe Vera gel for skin problems but there are no authentic scientific data regarding use Aloe vera gel in diabetics.

After a uterus & ovaries have been removed, patient will need hormone replacement therapy. The exact dose, a gynaecologist will be able to tell. Any way diabetes must be well controlled.

I have given my blood for the self aware Thyroid test to pathology, as I was feeling some uncomfortably in me. Today I receive my report, in this Serum T3, T4 is ok but Serum TSH is coming 28.16 Micro IU/ML, which has to be between 0.3 to 5. Kindly suggest whether m I suffering from Thyroid? If yes then is it a start up stage, medium stage or a critical stage? Kindly suggest what food and medicine should be taken to cure it as per my report. Already 8 months passed of my normal delivery.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. With TSH value of 28.16 mU/L, she has hypothyroidism, fairly uncontrolled. It is a condition which can be very effectively treated with appropriate dosage of thyroxine, being taken regularly. There is nothing like early, or critical stage. What is needed is regular treatment. However, treatment has to be for the lifetime. For giving a prescription I need to know her weight, height T3 & T4 levels. It is better if you come in a private conversation, then I can give very specific guidelines. Another important aspect is that if hypothyroidism is not well controlled, then subsequent pregnancy can be a problem. Thanks.

Mr. Lybrate-user, first thing is to have a very strict blood sugar control like fasting around 100 mg, pp 150 to 160 mg and hba1c%<6.8. Ed is a common problem occurring in patients with diabetes due affection of small vessels supplying the penile musculature because of persistent hyperglycemia. So primary need is to achieve strict control as mentioned earlier. Plus there are some drugs available belonging to pde iv inhibitors, which do help. Thanks for the question.
