Please state your Sugar Test results clearly so that you can get proper advice from doc here. Fasting sugar. PP .HbA1c. Medicine you are taking Ideally your sugar level should be 70-99 on fasting. So 66 is below normal which is not good. It can mean medicine dosage is high OR your food intake is not regulated. Please give all details so that you can get correct advice. You can post in this itself or post on a new thread.

Your symptoms suggest that you are suffering from immuno-suppresion which may be due to both diabetes and HIV infection.Get your blood tested for HIV1 and 2. If positive you should be treated with Anti HIV drugs. If negative you should control your blood sugar properly with insulin/ diet /excercise and control oral thrush with local antifungal agents.

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.

Dear, alprax contains alprazolam. It is a short acting medicine that makes one drowsy/sleepy. But when used for a longer time and then suddenly stopped it can lead to rebound sleeplessness. It does have side effects and I would not recommend that you take it continuously. You may gradually try to decrease the dose to half then take it alternate day and then stop it over 2 weeks. Don't stop immediately. There are other safer drugs for insomnia that you can use instead. More than medicines there are other things that you can try to help yourself sleep better. I will be glad to help you out in case you need more information.

A normal person has blood sugar in the range of : fasting levels less than 100 and 2 hr post food sugar less than 140. fasting levels above 125 and post food levels 200 and above is considered diabetic. any level in between is seen in a person at risk of developing diabetes in the near future (prediabetes). 160 in fasting is diabetic , whereas 160 seen 2hrs after food is prediabetes. the closer the sugar level is to the normal levels, the better is the control.

Diabetes Health Tip
Chinese foods are worst for diabetics:


High-calorie, high fat, high-sodium, and high-carb chinese food dishes can spike blood sugar dramatically and keep it high for a while. The biggest offenders include fried entrees such as orange chicken and sweet and sour dishes, which contain breading and are served swimming in a sugary sauce.

Have this instead: if you enjoy chinese food, prepare a modified recipe at home using steamed veggies and low-sodium, low-fat condiments and flavorings. Reducing sodium can help lower blood pressure and decrease the risk of heart attacks. Skip the white rice and noodles; have brown rice or wild rice instead.

My fbs is 118 and ppbs is 158. Am I diabetic, what are my risks? Am 36 years and 161cms.

You have a high bmi. Though your sugars appear fine but would still like to see your hba1c along with your blood pressure. High bmi definitely makes you prone for metabolic complications like hypertension and other cardiovascular diseases along with both micro and macro vascular complications of diabetes. Best will be to exercise regularly, maintain a balanced diet and take proper medicines. Hope that solves your query.
