Mr. Lybrate-user, you have to first take appropriate treatment with anti- diabetes drugs, plus restricted diet and regular exercise. As regards giving an exact diet plan, it has to be very individualised. So I need to know sugar levels, hba1c%, present dietary habits and extent of daily exercise being done. Unless those details are there, I may not be able to give any plan. Still a few things you should are: avoid sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries, white bread, other bakery item, sweetened aerated drinks, high fat milk products, fructose corn syrup containing products and highly processed foods. You should consume good deal of green leafy vegetables, salads and permitted fruits (100 g a day). Thanks fooor the question.

Both of your problems are due to diabetes, so you need strict control of blood sugar and take multivitamins and folic acid, antioxidants.

Hi Fasting blood sugar of 142 is diabetes. You may have to take small dose of medicine to bring it under control apart from regular exercise and proper diet.

Which is safest and minimum drug for diabetic 100/140?

M. D (Internal Medicine) , M B B S
General Physician,
You do not need medicines currently. Follow diabetic diet and regular exercise. Do a hba1c now. Repeat all these tests after 3 months of regular diet and exercise. If it is controlled, continue the same and keep checking every 3 months. Medications can be started if it goes out of control despite diet and exercise.

If you are in your initial stages, try diet-exercise routine to gain better control of your blood sugars with minimum possible medicines. Also, try losing atleast 10-12 kg of your weight. It will do wonders & there are chances that your medicines might stop for now. I would advise you and your family members to go for genetic tests as you have got the disease at such an early age.

For diabetes follow a diet low in carbohydrate, low in fat and high in fibre. Walking for 30 mins a day for at least 5 days in a week is recommended. Follow a stress free life. Try walking for 10-15 min after your meal. If still your pp level remains high than your medication needs to be changed.

My mother was diagnosed with thyroid around a couple of years back. Now again the swelling has grown and on getting the test as per the dr's advice, the results have shown the increased thryoid again. She is on medication from last 2 weeks but swelling is still there. So is there a minimum time after which the medicine's effects can be seen?

Please tell me when she was diagnosed of hypothyroidism two years back was the medication continued without any break? hypothyroidism is a condition which will need lifelong treatment with thyroxine tablets in prescribed dosage. One can not stop the drug in between. Swelling may disappear or remain even on regular treatment. Do not worry about the swelling, but continue the treatment.

She is 24 year and she has thyroid can she get pregnant but she has an normal thyroid.
Dear Lybrate user, You have mentioned that she has thyroid at the beginning of your statement and that she has normal thyroid at the end. If she has thyroid, then she should be put on appropriate treatment and then investigated whether she can get pregnant. Most of the ladies with thyroid problem conceive.

If you haven't tried exercise and strict diet control as yet then be assured that both these measures can control your diabetes. Sadly, though these approaches are the best way to control diabetes but are also the toughest to practise. Its a myth that diabetes medicines once started cant be stopped. Infact its the patient ongoing test reports and conditions which define the need for medicines.

You can use sugar in less quantities instead of sugar free. Since you are having limited intake of tea/ coffee there is no problem.
