Mr dosage of thyrofit (100 mcg) being taken by your wife appears to be ok, because her tsh level is still very high. She should test the levels every 8 weeks and adjust the dosage accordingly. Your dose of thyrofit (25 mcg) also looks ok, but get the thyroid functions done every 2 - 3 months and adjust the dose either up wards or downwards.

How To Take Care Of Diabetic Nerve Pain

Sixty to seventy percent of those individuals will develop diabetic peripheral neuropathy (DPN) at some point during their lives. In fact, DPN is the most common diabetes complications and it?s an increasingly-common problem within the African-American community. There are several ways to prevent diabetes-related complications, but if you?re already one of the millions of people living with DPN every day, here are three ways to manage your symptoms.
1.Lower your blood glucose levels.
Keeping your blood sugar levels in check is absolutely critical when it comes to treating DPN because it lowers the patient?s risk of developing complications, including urinary tract infections and amputation.
?Keeping your blood sugar controlled is essential to managing DPN,? When your blood sugar is controlled, the blood flow can improve with time if it?s still early in the disease.
2. Change your lifestyle.
That means eating healthier and incorporating more raw foods into your everyday diet, exercising regularly if you don?t already and not smoking.
?Appropriate diet and exercise helps in several ways. Both of which will have a direct impact in controlling you blood sugar,? Dr. Carter says. ?You also get the added benefit of better blood flow. Exercise has been shown to improve blood flow and help regulate the hormones involved in regulating your blood sugar i.E. Insulin and cortisol. Exercise can help control the low-grade inflammation you get in the nerve cells when your blood sugar is not controlled as well.?
3. Meditate.
Depression and anxiety are quite common among people with DPN since many patients lose the ability to perform simple, everyday tasks, such as cooking, driving and tying one?s shoes. If you?re already taking medication prescribed by your doctor, then by all means, continue to do so, but consider adding meditation to your everyday routine. According to a 2011 study published in the Journal of Neuroscience, people who meditate regularly experienced less pain.
?Not often thought of, meditation can be quite helpful,? Dr. Carter says. ?By helping lower your stress levels, it will help your blood sugar control, lower your vascular tone and how tense your blood vessels are [while] improving the blood flow to those nerves as well.?

How should we calculate insulin for type 2 Diabetes mellitus condition ?plz give me with example.

How should we calculate insulin for type 2 Diabetes mellitus condition ?plz give me with example.
Normally starting dose of insulin for type 2 diabetes is roughly 0.4-0.6 units/kg weight. But in type 2 diabetes insulin resistance is variable. In long standing diabetes pt whose beta cells are exhausted and who is obese insulin requirement may go beyond 2-3 units/kg. HbA1c is approx average of blood sugar control in last 3 months. More HbA1c means more uncontrolled diabetes and may require more insulin. Normally diabetologist starts insulin considering age of patient, duration of dm, HbA1c, obesity, current medication details, co morbidities, meal pattern and few other factors. Its individualised treatment and may not work same in other individual. Even insulin has different analogues and have different duration of action. For e.g. Lantus (glargine) has 24 hr action (basal insulin) and humalog (lispro) has 4 hr action. Human actrapid or huminsulin R (regular insulin) has 6-8 hr action. Etc so dosage and timing of insulin is also variable, it depends on which insulin you are taking or which insulin is suitable for you. I hope this answer help you to understand your doubt.

I am 58 years old and diabetic. Can I take lemon with warm water. I am already thin and dont want to reduce weight. Please suggest immediately.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
You can take lemon water without sugar. 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) 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. 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. I assure you a proper guidance. If you keep in touch. Www. Lybrate.

Hi lybrate-user, your thyroid levels are slightly high it should be around 2.5 when trying to get pregnant. Diet won't help that much in hypothyroidism, you can try for gluten free diet. Ideally you should have thyroid medicine it will be corrected in a month don't worry it's not major issues. Don't stop talking medicine without consulting doctor.

Hi Anam Numbness of your hands could be related to thyroid problem. There might also be deficiency of vitamin B-12. You should start exercising daily for 30 minutes. simple aerobics will be enough. Start taking calcium, vitamin-D and Vitamin B-12 supplements. One tablet of calcium daily and One for Vitamin B-12 daily For vit.-D take cholecalciferol sachet weekly for 6 weeks. This solution is for now but it wont be permanent. For a permanent solution your thyroid problem needs to be treated and that is POSSIBLE with HOMOEOPATHIC medicines; you will be cured and there wont be any need of taking thyronorm. Your migraine will also get cured. For this a proper consultation is required so that your case can be analysed and treatment given accordingly. For this you can consult any good homoeopath or me as you are in Delhi only. Otherwise you can make good use of Lybrate.

Mr. Lybrate-user, your blood glucose levels and hba1c% show there is no diabetes. Bp 140 / 90 is slightly higer than normal. Ideally it should be 120 - 130 / 70 to 80 mm hg. As regards lipids no mention is made about the levels, hence no comment can be made. Ed therefore, is unrelated to any of these problems. If it continues to be there and tends to be more troublesome then better to consult a sexologist. Thanks.

Practically yes you can use lancet multiple times of you are using for same person considering usage is on same day or within couple of days. Repeated usage of same lancet for same person increases risk of infection. Lancet need to be changed each time if you are using for multiple patients.
