It is not in diabetic range. If u still want to be sure, get done HBA1C test which will show sugar status of last 3 months. Current FBS & pp2bs are normal. what's ur age? fasting is borderline and postprandial is normal but ideally it should be done 2 hours after proper lunch or dinner.

Thyroid is a gland which secrets hormones. Either increased or decreased levels are found in diseased condition. Generally fat fertile female of age forty are considered to be prone to this. Your headache may be due to acidity which is disturbing your abdomen. Regularize your diet, sleep and exercise avoid tension. Some simple antacids may help. Regards.

I am 28 years old. I am having sugar but I did not maintained for diet. Please give me suggestions for food control.

MBBS, Diploma in Cardiac Emergencies in General Practice
General Physician,
I am 28 years old. I am having sugar but I did not maintained for diet. Please give me suggestions for food control.
Diet details that you might want to consider: A registered dietitian can help you put together a diet based on your health goals, tastes and lifestyle and can provide valuable information on how to change your eating habits. Anyways this is simplified version of diet. Recommended foods: Healthy carbohydrates. During digestion, sugars (simple carbohydrates) and starches (complex carbohydrates) break down into blood glucose. Focus on the healthiest carbohydrates, such as fruits, vegetables, whole grains, legumes (beans, peas and lentils) and low-fat dairy products. Fiber-rich foods. Dietary fiber includes all parts of plant foods that your body can't digest or absorb. Fiber can decrease the risk of heart disease and help control blood sugar levels. Foods high in fiber include vegetables, fruits, nuts, legumes (beans, peas and lentils), whole-wheat flour and wheat bran. Heart-healthy fish. Eat heart-healthy fish at least twice a week. Fish can be a good alternative to high-fat meats. For example, cod, tuna and halibut have less total fat, saturated fat and cholesterol than do meat and poultry. Fish such as salmon, mackerel, tuna, sardines and bluefish are rich in omega-3 fatty acids, which promote heart health by lowering blood fats called triglycerides. However, avoid fried fish and fish with high levels of mercury, such as tilefish, swordfish and king mackerel.'Good' fats. Foods containing monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats — such as avocados, almonds, pecans, walnuts, olives, and canola, olive and peanut oils — can help lower your cholesterol levels. Eat them sparingly, however, as all fats are high in calories. Foods to avoid Diabetes increases your risk of heart disease and stroke by accelerating the development of clogged and hardened arteries. Foods containing the following can work against your goal of a heart-healthy diet. Saturated fats. High-fat dairy products and animal proteins such as beef, hot dogs, sausage and bacon contain saturated fats. Get no more than 7 percent of your daily calories from saturated fat. Trans fats. These types of fats are found in processed snacks, baked goods, shortening and stick margarines and should be avoided completely. Cholesterol. Sources of cholesterol include high-fat dairy products and high-fat animal proteins, egg yolks, shellfish, liver, and other organ meats. Aim for no more than 300 milligrams (mg) of cholesterol a day. Sodium. Aim for less than 2,300 mg of sodium a day.

Hi doctor
My age is 36 but I am suffering from diabetes I have more stress in my job.
I am have sex problem pls help me.
Mr. Lybrate-user, in patients with diabetes erectile dysfunction is quite often seen complication. Most important thing is to have very strict blood glucose control, like fasting closer to 100 mg, pp 150 to 160 mg & hba1c% <6.8. Hence, you will have to work to wards achieving the above levels. As regards stress in the job, well you will have to learn to relax and reduce that stress level. There are multiple methods or ways to learn relaxation techniques. As regards relieving sex problems, there are a number of drugs available, which can be used.

Hello, biscuits are really not a healthy food. If you need fiber use vegetables, fruits, flax seeds, fenugreek seeds and whole grain products. There is hardly a need for instant energy, if your diet is balanced and healthy. Thanks for the question.

You need to keep a tab on your sugar levels regularly. Also increase the intake of veggies, salads, whole grain cereals like jowar, bajra, oats, etc and avoid foods high in sugars such as sweets, rice, potato, etc. Take medications on time and ensure you eat small potions at regular intervals. Never skip any meal.

My wife, 66 years, suffered a intracerebral brain hemorrhage stroke more than a year ago. She is not under any medication for this other than her regular drugs for diabetics and hypertension. She still feels numbness around her right cheeks and continues to feel bitter taste in her saliva. Is this a common phenomena as some doctors say? Is there any medicine that can help to improve without much side effects? (She is too sensitive to most of the common medications.)

Hello lybrate user as you asked about your problems related to diabetes and bp as well as gastric discomfort, I would like to advise you that your metabolism isn't pretty and toxins are accumulated in the form of acid and gaseous flatulence with upcoming acidic belching and cause of gaseous pressure to upward on your chest and heart. It gives you heart pain and sometimes located at your under chest. You have low hb about 7% so it is very low. You had not mentioned about your sugar levels as fasting and pp. You should have consult with ayurveda doctor who will help you for your problems.

Mr. lybrate-user, If blood glucose is not well controlled then it is possible that patient may be loosing weight. So please ensure that blood glucose levels are well controlled. Ideally FBS should be closer to 100 mg, PP 150 to 160 mg & HbA1c% <7. If this is done weight loss can be controlled. So treatment has to be be properly done. Thanks.
