Hello You are Pre Diabetic, and you have both Impaired fasting glycemia and impaired glucose tolerance. You need to take all dietary precautions and life style modifications in same way as Diabetics dose, Evidences suggest that almost 50 % of Pre Diabetics get converted to Diabetics over 5 years duration so you need to recheck Blood sugar levels regularly while observing all life style modification and closely monitor the fluctuations.

I have diabetes. I am looking forward for some suggestions to keep in control of diabetes. Please help me.
Following are a few suggestions: 1) take your medication as advised by doctpr without missing a dose, 2) avoid sweets, direct sugar and jaggery, deep fried foods, high fat cheese, junk foods, pastries, sweetened aerated drinks and products containing fructose corn syrup. 3) take a restricted diet, that provides exact calories based on ideal body weight (60 kgs) 4) regular exercise for at least 1 hour a day, like brisk walking, jogging, running, gym exercises etc. 5) consume more of green leafy vegetables and salads, permitted fruits (100 g a day), 6) strive to maintain blood sugar fasting closer to 100 mg, pp between 150 to 160 mg and hba1c%<7.7) no alcohol or smoking. Basically it means adapting a modified lifestyle, this will help in controlling diabetes.

lybrate-user, When glucose level goes too low (hypoglycemia), then there is counter regulatory mechanism activated in the body. This leads to release of a hormone Glucagon from alpha cells in the pancreas. That hormone causes breakdown of glycogen in the liver, producing glucose, which in turn increases blood glucose. Body can not tolerate low glucose state for long time. Hence, this counter regulatory mechanism is activated. Thanks.

Diabetes, hypertension are very much related to your food choices and to control it you need to bring changes in your food choices. Keep check on your food intake, include good fat in your diet so to control cholesterol level in blood. Moreover enough of calcium in your diet such as a glass of skimmed milk to prevent body & back aches.

What is the normal blood sugar levels?

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
Pediatrician,
What is the normal blood sugar levels?
Fbs,<100 and ppbs < 140 mg/dl diabetes affects all organs in the body? eyes, kidneys, nerves, reproductive system all are affected, in fact, from toe to hair. For diabetic control, patient and doctor should be n constant touch for regular follow up and advice. It is not as easy task to control blood sugar in the desired normal range. Whatever we eat is metabolised to sugar in the body to provide energy for our daily activities. For the absolute control, one has to monitor his / her blood sugar at regular intervals (self-monitoring of blood glucose smbg). Though difficult, this can be done by a glucometer and keep a record. Get an idea of fasting sugar (fbs) and 2 hours after food (ppbs),& hba1c (inform me) and check before dinner and after every major food. The basic idea is to reduce the food intake to 1/3 of what you take now. The dictum of sugar control is diet, exercise, diet + medicine and at later stage medicine+ insulin will be needed. There are different diet plans of varying calories for each person depending on his activity & life style. For sugar control there is the need for regular advice and follow up. Just one time consultation or advice is not enough to guide a diabetic in scientifically & medically correct manner. For giving you regular follow up you ask me privately with all details like your daily eating pattern and medicines you take.

Also I want to know which branch is better for this cure like allopathy or homeopathy or ayurvedic, I am taking allopathic medicines. Thank you.

lybrate-user, TSH 21.5 mU/L is very high, showing you have hypothyroidism. This is a deficiency disease, where your thyroid gland is not producing enough thyroxine hormone. This hormone is essential for day to day development of brain as well as functioning of it. Plus it takes part in multiple vital chemical (metabolic) reactions in the body. Therefore, it is required to be supplemented daily from an outside source for lifetime. If not then there can be serious complications affecting general health, weight gain, intolerance to cold, irregular menstrual cycles, heavy bleeding, dry skin & hair, fall of hair, difficulty n speech, inability to concentrate, possible infertility, swelling of face & feet and many more problems. Other medical practices have no treatment for this, only treatment is taking thyroxine tablets for life time. Thanks.

Mr. lybrate-user, At 60 years with 167.5 cms height your ideal body weight should be (167.5 - 100 = 67.5 X 0.9 = 60.5 kgs) 60.5 kgs. Hence your present weight is absolutely fine and within the prescribed limit. In diabetes weight ;loss occurs when blood glucose is not in control. If in control then weight improves with proper treatment and correct diet and exercise. Ideally fasting should be closer to 100 mg, PP 160 to 170 mg & HbA 1c% <7, when one is in control. BP should be 120 - 130 / 70 to 80 mm Hg. But upper limit of 140 / 90 mm Hg is permissible. Thanks.

Drink some bitter gourd juice on an empty stomach each morning. First remove the seeds of two to three bitter gourds and use a juicer to extract the juice. Also, you can include one dish made of bitter gourd daily in your diet.

A high uric acid level can be caused when your body either produces too much uric acid or your kidneys don't eliminate uric acid rapidly enough. A high uric acid level may cause increasingly frequent attacks of gout, or it may never cause problems. A high uric acid level may also cause some people to develop kidney stones or kidney failure. And some people with a high uric acid level also develop high blood pressure, heart disease or chronic kidney disease, but it's often unclear whether this is a direct cause or merely an early warning sign of these conditions. Factors that may cause a high uric acid level in your blood include: Diuretic medications (water pills),Drinking too much alcohol,Genetics (inherited tendencies),hypothyroidism (underactive thyroid),Immune-suppressing drugs,Niacin, or vitamin B-3, obesity,psoriasis, Purine-rich diet — organ meat, game meat, anchovies, herring, gravy, dried beans, driedpeas, mushrooms and other foods Renal insufficiency — inability of the kidneys to filter waste Tumor lysis syndrome — a rapid release of cells into the blood caused by certain cancers or by chemotherapy for those cancers,Also, you may be monitored for high uric acid levels when undergoing chemotherapy or radiation treatment for cancer. Avoid protein diets, avoid more milk products. bad habits , fast food/fat/oily,salty foods. Coffee, smoking, alcohol intake. Non-veg., take whole grain,oats,green veg.,plenty of water in day time, 1 glass of water at night before bed. Take tab. Zyloric 100 mg once a day. Tab. Ulracet sos for pain in joints.

Hi, I am 41 years old & am suffering from pain in my heel area from past 2 months. After my blood test suggested by doctor it showed uric acid is 7.2mg/dl. My doctor said its gouty arthritis. My doctor suggested medicine tablet febuxostat 400mg & restriction of food like rice, dal, chicken etc. I took medicine tablet febuxostat 400mg regularly for 10 days but have not been able to restrict my food. The pain only starts when I stand continuously in the kitchen even for 10 minutes. Nothing happens when I walk. Please tell me if my problem is because of uric acid or is it something else. Please give me a solution without me restricting my food as I eat dal & rice daily.

Please understand that Thyroid medicines are for life. There is no permanent cure available for this problem. She will have to take these medicines forever. Just ask her to treat these pills as friends for life. Just like taking roti and dal. These medicine also can be taken. Her weight is also high. She needs to reduce it else her sugar levels will go out of control. Follow these rules for diabetic diet. 1. Eat every two hours mini meals. Don't eat big meals. Take more green vegetables/salads. 2. Eat whole grain food/grains like ragi, wheat, jowar instead of refined grains like maida/ sooji/ white bread etc. 3. Reduce foods with high GI Index like potato, white rice, banana, mango. 4. Avoid all forms of simple sugars like Colas, juices, sweets, cakes, biscuits, pizzas, noodles etc. 5. Eat daily fruits with low/medium GI index like apple, guava, mosambi, orange. 6. Eat lot of proteins like dals, sprouts, egg, chicken etc with every minimeal. 7. Drink lot of water. One glass every hour. 8. Do at least 30-45 mins of exercise everyday.

Diabetes, often referred to by doctors as diabetes mellitus, describes a group of metabolic diseases in which the person has high blood glucose (blood sugar), either because insulin production is inadequate, or because the body's cells do not respond properly to insulin, or both. It is a difficult task to control blood sugar in the desired normal range. Whatever we eat is metabolised to sugar in the body to provide energy for our daily activities. For the absolute control, one has to monitor his / her blood sugar at regular intervals (Self-Monitoring of Blood glucose – SMBG). Though difficult, this can be done by a glucometer and keep a record. Get an idea of Fasting sugar (FBS) and 2 hours after food (PPBS), & HbA1C (inform me) and check before dinner and after every major food. The basic idea is to reduce the food intake to 1/3 of what you take now. The dictum of sugar control is diet, exercise, diet + medicine and at later stage medicine+ Insulin will be needed. There are different diet plans of varying calories for each person depending on his activity & life style. For diabetes, hypertension (high BP) and many long-term illness control there is the need for regular advice and follow up. Just one time consultation or advice is not enough to guide a diabetic in scientifically & medically correct manner. For giving you regular follow up you ask me with all details like your daily eating pattern and medicines you take. I assure you a proper guidance... if you keep in touch personally.
