Thanks for the query. T2 Diabetes is a familial disease, so chances of children getting diabetes is high if parents are diabetic. However, it can be prevented if one maintains normal weight, exercises regularly and takes healthy diet. It is absolutely necessary to maintain your BMI < 23 KGS/ Sq meter.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. All cereals that is wheat, rice, jowar, ragi or other millets contain starch, which gets converted to glucose on digestion. Our food (vegetarian) contains almost 6o% or more of carbohydrates. Only thing is one should complex carbs that is whole grain flour. No refined flour like maida or there should no sieving (chanana). Plus a good quantity of vegetables and fruits should also be taken. Plus eggs, some fried or fatty foods also be there. Thanks.

lybrate-user ji, Thanks for the query. With TSH at 9.36 mU/L, it is clear that present dosage of Levothyroxine is not adequate. There is a need for increase. You may increase it to 50 mcg per day and then check TSH after 6 weeks. Ideally it should be maintained around 3 to 4 mU/L for being free from all the symptoms. Thanks.

Lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Both the tests mentioned have nothing to with diabetes. Ferritin is measured for finding about iron deficiency anemia and Creatinine kinase is done in relation to myocardial problems. Thanks.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. In hyperthyroidism due to excess thyroxine heart rate does go up, plus there may be palpitations. Therefore toexcess activity may return. Then other modes of treatment control that Beta blocker (Ciplar) is given. That helps in controlling those symptoms. If necessary that dosage may have to be increased. However, most important is to bring TSH closer to normal range (around 3 to 4 mU/L. That will relieve all the symptoms. Treatment with Neomercazole has to continue for over 12 to 18 months or even longer. Once thyroid function returns to normal drug may be discontinued. However,

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. The levels 110 - 120 mg fasting and PP 150 to 160 mg fall in the category of pre-diabetes. With your excess obesity (BMI 32.93 kgs/Sq met), you were very prone to develop diabetes. Once fasting glucose goes over 126 mg and PP 200 mg and above, & HbA1c% >6.5 diabetes is diagnosed. So now with 9.8 HbA1 cc% you have uncontrolled diabetes. When a person is in pre-diabetes state, it is possible to prevent progressing to diabetes or postpone it, by regular exercise, weight control (to near normal) and diet restriction. However, once if the disease develops, then there is no option but to use necessary medications along with diet control and regular exercise. Even now if you manage to cut your weight by over 30 kgs, there is a possibility of coming out of it. That is a possibility. Thanks.
