Mr. C lybrate-user, Looking at your weight and height you have grade 1 obesity with a BMI of 30.06 kgs/M2 (normal <23 kgs/M2). That itself is a major contributor for increased blood glucose and and hypertension. At your age HbA1c% should be ideally <6.8. Diabetes is a life long remaining condition, there is no cure. It can only be controlled by appropriate medication, diet control and regular exercise and weight reduction. Thanks.

Lybrate-user, if diabetes is well in check with fasting blood glucose closer to 100 mg, pp 150 to 160 mg and hba1c%<6.8, then it is really good. Because uncontrolled diabetes tends to aggravate all existing symptoms. To control bach ache one of the best methods is to do specific exercises which help toning up upper and lower back muscles and strengthen them. Pain killers are a temporary solution. If need be consult a physiotherapist or do yoga asanas.

Mr. Lybrate-user, disturbance purine metabolism produces excess uric acid. Normal uric acid levels in female are 2.4 to 6 mg and in male 3.4 to 7 mg increased uric acid may be produced because derangement in purine metabolism. This is called primary uricemia. Seconday increase in uric acid may occur due to disease of kidneys, certain chemotherapeutic drugs, diabetes or acidosis can cause increase in uric acid. Elevated uric acid does not produce problem in every one, only 20% people suffer with gout. In some with gout uric acid may not be high. Gouty arthritis is the main manifestation of hyperuricemia. Gout is painful swelling of joints, great toe is first to get involved, other joints may also get affected. It is very painful condition especislly in acute attacks.

Ideally you should check your fasting blood sugar in the morning before taking breakfast(Not even tea). you should also take a light dinner in the previous night. You should check your postprandial blood sugar 2 hour after breakfast.

rSugars fluctuate depending on the diet,activity, medicine and the stress hormones released in the body. The way your body metabolises your sugar depends on the internal environment .so,it's actually not feasible to check sugars frequently. So,hba1c gives fairly average sugars over a period of 3 months. So,5.5 is good control, u need not worry but follow a balanced diet to me antain the same

My daughter aged 40 had a blood test last week her homocysteine level is 18. 34. What does this indicate? she is diabetic and also has thyroid.

Abnormally high levels of homocysteine in the serum, above 15 ?mol/l, are a medical condition called hyperhomocysteinemia. This has been claimed to be a significant risk factor for the development of a wide range of diseases, including thrombosis, neuropsychiatric illness, and fractures. It is also found to be associated with microalbuminuria which is a strong indicator of the risk of future cardiovascular disease and renal dysfunction.

I am diabetic 26 years old. Hba1c 7.5 .how long I will use metformin ?will I use it throughout my life?
The treatment of diabetes is not that simple. There are many classes of diabetic drugs. It depends on extent of diabetes and complications to decide medicine for the diabetic person. Dosages are also decided upon depending on your acute and chronic sugar levels, fasting sugar levels, post prandial sugar levels, urine sugar levels, urine microalbumin levels, urea and creatinine levels. So, a complete diabetic profile needs to be done to reach for the best drugs and proper dosages. Here is the list of tests, please get them done and follow up with me. I will do the best and give you a proper treatment. 1. Hba1c. 2. Sugar - fasting and pp. 3. Urine - routine and microscopy. 4. Urine microalbumin. 5. Urea and creatinine. 6. Lipid profile. Follow up with the reports. I will set up a wonderful treatment plan to control your sugar levels. Additionally I will also make a customised dietary plan for you to take care of your sugar levels naturally.
