Hello. Your mother appears to be affected by a condition called epilepsy (most probably generalised tonic clonic siezure) which is going to remain there for life. As she is taking zeptol 400 (carbamazepine) regularly, it is the drug of choice for this condition too along with valproate and is quite safe too. This medicine is not the cause for diabetes and hyperchlesterolemia. But as she has already taken medications for more than 15 years with out occurance of single episode of convulsion and unconsiousness, now she can be tried for dose tapering or drug withdrawal. Please consult your physian for that and take proper medical advise with physical cheak up. Take care & be healthy.

Metformin is a safe drug for long term use, provided you don't have any serious kidney disease. It is best taken AFTER food, twice daily.

My mother (58+ Y) is under treatment for Hypothyroidism & Hypertension. She used to have controlled BP (110/70 - 130/80) & sugar (FBS - 97) till a month back. Over last few days she is very tensed due to health issues at home. Today afternoon she suddenly felt 'chakkar' lost vision for 3-4 minutes & was about to fall down from the sitting position. Her speech was also not very clear during those 3-4 m. We also observed her left hand is shaking for that time. However, she was back to normal activities within 5 minutes. Is this an emergency? What should be our next steps?

Mr. lybrate-user, Thank you for your query, I understand your concern. Looking at your description it is not very clear whether she ahs any serious episode of storke or not. However, please get the blood pressure checked, if it has remained as mentioned then there may not be any serious issue. However, she should meet her regular doctor and go through a thorough examination. Is her TSH in good control? (between 3 to 4 mU/L), if not then thyroxine dose may have to be increased. If you have any doubts please do come back. Thanks.

Hello, don't think it's related to hypothyroidism. Please avoid spicy food and pickles. And have a glass of milk when you go for sleep. It may be be due to acidity.

Mr Maruti, To control diabetes mellitus and high BP one is you need to take appropriate medication, plus balanced and restricted diet that provides exact calories based on ideal body weight, sugar levels and extent of daily exercise. Plus exercise daily for at least 1 hour. For controlling BP you have to reduce salt intake and deep fried foods. If you are looking for specific guide lines then please come in a private conversation with details like fasting and PP sugar levels, HbA1c%, BP reading, dietary pattern and amount of exercise done daily. There I will be able to give specific suggestions.

Mr. lybrate-user, One of the main reasons for uncontrolled glucose level is your excess body weight. You have grade 3 obesity with a BMI of 40.83 kgs/M2, Your ideal body weight should be 55 kgs. There is an excess of 43 kgs. Unless you make a special effort to cut weight, it is very difficult to gain desired blood glucose control. There has to be a very strict control on food intake (reduced calories) plus good deal of exercise a day of at least 1 hour. Thanks.
