What is the correct method for blood test for pp n fasting what time one should eat dinner for fasting test next day?...
Hi, Minimum 10-12 hours of fasting is necessary to check FBS. Therefore have your dinner within 8.00 PM. Check you PPBS 2 hours after the last bite of your lunch or breakfast. Have regular breakfast or lunch; but eat stomach full and then go for the blood test.

My mother-in-law is diabetic & under medication for the same. A couple of days back around 9am she felt weak & giddy. We asked her to lie down & immediately gave her some sugar to chew. She was not responding to us & was giving blank looks. After some time she got up and started going around normally but the previous 3 hours activity was erased from her mind. What could be the reason? whether we were correct in giving her sugar to eat? any test required?

Hello, diabetic patients are more prone to develop hypoglycaemia (low sugar level). The episode which you have narrated is because of this. You did a great job by giving sugar to your mother-in law at the time. You just saved her. Brain is mainly dependent on sugar. When blood glucose level goes down even for a fraction of seconds, patients will develop dizziness, loss of consciousness, seizure etc. Timely food intake will help to avoid such episodes.For further assistance you can concern me privately.

Glynase usually works during the first few years & then starts failing. You should consider starting gliptins along with metformin.

YOu have to check your diabetes status now and inform me. 5 Ways to Fight Depression If you feel depressed, it's best to do something about it — depression doesn't just go away on its own. In addition to getting help from a doctor or therapist, here are 5 things you can do to feel better. 1.Exercise. Take a 15- to 30-minute brisk walk every day — or dance, jog, or bike if you prefer. People who are depressed may not feel much like being active. In addition to getting aerobic exercise, some yoga poses can help relieve feelings of depression. Two other aspects of yoga — breathing exercises and meditation — can also help people with depression feel better. 2.Nurture yourself with good nutrition. Depression can affect appetite. One person may not feel like eating at all, but another might overeat. Proper nutrition can influence a person's mood and energy. So eat plenty of fruits and vegetables and get regular meals (even if you don't feel hungry, try to eat something light, like a piece of fruit, to keep you going). 3.Identify troubles, but don't dwell on them. Try to identify any situations that have contributed to your depression. When you know what's got you feeling blue and why, talk about it with a caring friend. Talking is a way to release the feelings and to receive some understanding. 4. Express yourself. With depression, a person's creativity and sense of fun may seem blocked. Exercise your imagination (painting, drawing, doodling, sewing, writing, dancing, composing music, etc.) and you not only get those creative juices flowing, you also loosen up some positive emotions. Take time to play with a friend or a pet, or do something fun for yourself. Find something to laugh about — a funny movie, perhaps. Laughter helps lighten your mood. 5.Try to notice good things. Depression affects a person's thoughts, making everything seem dismal, negative, and hopeless. If depression has you noticing only the negative, make an effort to notice the good things in life. Try to notice one thing, then try to think of one more. Consider your strengths, gifts, or blessings. Most of all, don't forget to be patient with yourself. Depression takes time to heal. If you are happy with these answers please click on "useful” link so that I can know my efforts are not wasted. If you want more clarifications please ask me directly and not in open questions session.

I belong to a diabetic family in the sense that my father had diabetes and my elder brother has also diabetes. I had diabetes when I was young. Now I am aged 61 years and I have been going for running for one hour daily for the past 26 years and I eat mostly rice or rice preparation items like idly,dosa etc three times a day. I don't have any symptom of diabetes but I have psoriasis for the past two and half years. I checked my sugar level few times for some other medical ailments and it was in border.Is it safe to count on jogging only? Is psoriasis problem due to diabetes?

Vaidya Visharad
Sexologist, Narnaul
Dear, Psoriasis is a common skin problem. Psoriasis can be considered as the vitiation of Vata and Kapha. Accumulation of low potency poisons (Dooshi vishas), are the basic pathological changes taking place in the system. Irregular food habits, consumption of foodstuffs together (Eg: diary products with fish), excessive intake of yogurt, black gram, seafood, sour and salted items etc can activate the pathogenesis. Alcohol, tobacco consumption and stress will act as a catalyst here. Visit us at www.Malhotraayurveda.Com

My wife is suffering from hyperthyroidism since last 2 year. Although she is taking Eltroxin 50 mg daily in night but since last 1 month her TSH level is 6.05.and she has having thyroid related problems. Please advise treatment.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Mr. lybrate-user , Thanks for the query. When on treatment it is essential that TSH is maintained < 3 mU/L, to be free from all the symptoms of hypothyroidism. Since her TSH is 6.05 mU/L, the symptoms are bound to come back. Therefore, it is necessary to to increase the dose of Levothyroxine initially by 12.5 mcg per day, then check TSH after 6 weeks, if the desired level is attained, then continue the same dose. If not then it may have to be increased further by similar quantity. If you have any doubts please do come back. Thanks.

Hello, With TSH at 5.58 mU/L why was the treatment started? Because TSH value between 6 to 9.9 mU/L is considered as sub-clinical hypothyroidism and no treatment is advocated. Treatment is given only when level goes beyond 10 mU/L. Normal range of TSH is 0.5 to 6 mU/L.

I have creatine in blood at the level of 15 and uric acid at the level of 8.5. What I want to do?

There are many lifestyle and dietary guidelines that can be followed to protect against future flares or prevent gout or uric acid problems from occurring in the first instance: maintain a high fluid intake (2-4 liters a day) avoid alcohol maintain a healthy body weight eat a balanced diet limit fish, meat and poultry intake. If attempting to lose weight, avoid low-carbohydrate diets. If carbohydrate intake is insufficient, the body is unable to burn its own fat properly, releasing substances called ketones into the bloodstream. This results in a condition called ketosis that can increase the level of uric acid in the blood. It is most important to avoid foods that are high in purines, to ensure that the levels of uric acid in the blood do not get too high. Here is a list of high-purine foods to be wary of: beef kidneys brains dried beans and peas liver mackerel mushrooms lose some weight by walking or other exercise, avoid meats and get always be on a prescribed diet as prescribed by a registered dietitian. I am a registered dietitian, certified diabetes educator and a doctor, consult privately for detailed treatment plans using diet and medications.

Why is onion avoided in thyroid problem? I am having thyroid 6.5 t3. Kindly suggest what foods to be taken and what to avoid? Thanks.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. In hypothyroidism following foods, vegetables are supposed to be avoided: Soy beans, soy containing products. Vegetables to be avoided or taken very sparingly include cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, onions, spinach, radish & mustard. Plus peanuts and coffee. However, most important is to avoid soy beans and soy containing products. Others (mentioned above) can be taken in limited quantity. These foods are supposed to be affecting thyroxine action. Thanks One should consume a good deal of green leafy vegetables, salads and fruits. Use whole grain flour for chapati and roti. It is important to know what is TSH value and not T3. Because in hypothyroidism there is T4 deficiency leading to increase in TSH value above 10 mU/L.Thanks.

Keep your sugar under control. For diabetes follow a diet low in carbohydrate, low in fat and high in fibre. Avoid bakery products. Avoid too much rice and potato. Avoid fried stuff. Avoid chocolate, cakes, ice cream, soft drinks and fruit juices. Eat lots of vegetables. Walk for at least 30 minutes a day for 5 days in a week. Fungal infection are common in diabetic.
