Hi, There has been no successful treatment found yet to completely cure a patient of Diabetes. But with good diet, exercise and medication it can be controlled optimally. Good diabetic control leads to less complications of heart, nerves, eyes, kidneys etc. In your case, you are suffering with Type 1 diabetes. Your pancreas are not producing insulin. Hence only option is to give insulin from outside. Stopping your insulin injections will lead to devastating effects, so please continue with your insulin injections and be brave to face the challenges of your condition. I wish you good luck Thank you.

A high uric acid level is considered a risk factor for developing diabetes. In addition, you have blood sugar levels in the pre-diabetic range. Continue glyciphage (metformin). You might need to add febuxostat. Get your diabetologist's advice. By the way, how is your kidney function?

Study has revealed that for type 2 diabetes risk, where you live matters

A new study has revealed that for type 2 diabetes risk, where you live matters.

The university of california san francisco study found that living in a neighborhood with resources to support exercise and with access to healthy food was linked to a lower incidence of type 2 diabetes, medpage today reported. 

Researchers found that 12 percent of the more than 5, 000 people in the study developed diabetes within the average 8.9 years of follow-up, but patients who lived in areas that had access to more physical activity resources and healthy foods had a lower risk of developing diabetes. 

The social environment of a neighborhood was not associated with the incidence of type 2 diabetes, found the researchers, who were led by paul christine. 

Researchers nancy adler and aric prather wrote in an accompanying editorial that they do not yet know what elements of neighborhoods are most essential for generating better health, these researchers provide important clues about which elements have an effect and for whom. 

They noted that the risk for type 2 diabetes mellitus is a combination of both person and place, and the national strategies need to understand and intervene across these levels. 

Christine and colleagues also found that environmental resources mattered differently to those with higher and lower incomes. Poorer patients in areas being viewed as having less social activity and as being more dangerous to go outside in were more likely to develop type 2 diabetes, but overall, neighborhood safety and social cohesion were" largely unassociated" with diabetes. 

The results suggest that modifying specific features of neighborhood environments, including increasing the availability of healthy foods and physical activity resources, may help to mitigate the risk for t2dm, added researchers.

This thyroid value that you are telling, is it t3 or tsh? please specify or consult your doctor to assess if you are hypo/hyperthyroid or in a normal state with 75 mcg thyronorm. Thyroid abnormalities may also cause you these symptoms. However vertigo and nausea problem may be due to disease of ear like miniers disease, or labrynthitis for which you need to consult an ent specialist. Ct brain will help to identify the doctor any neurological diseases if any. Hope this helps.

Dear lybrate-user, your weakness isn't related to your blood sugar levels. At your age ageing, poor heart function, muscular atrophy, nutritional insufficiency and mental stress or depression are common but overlooked causes of weaknesses. Visit a doctor in your area, get necessary tests done and treat the cause. Don't worry. Regards.
