Mr. Lybrate-user, your blood sugar levels are slightly higher. Ideally fasting should be 100 mg, pp 150 to 160 mg and hba1c% <7. With present treatment you can achieve by adjusting your diet and exercising more every day. There may be no need to change the drugs. Take a close look at your diet, icrease daily exercise to more than 1 hour a day. That should help.

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 should be under proper guidance 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 & lifestyle.

thyroid can be control by medicines. You can take Nutrient-rich foods that improve your health may also benefit your thyroid gland, antioxidant-rich fruits and vegetables more plenty of water: Blueberries, tomatoes, bell peppers, and other foods rich in antioxidants can improve overall health and benefit the thyroid gland. Eating foods high in B vitamins, like whole grains, may also help. Selenium: Tiny amounts of selenium are needed for enzymes that make thyroid hormones to work properly. Eating selenium-rich foods, such as sunflower seeds or Brazil nuts, can be beneficial. Tyrosine: This amino acid is used by the thyroid gland to produce T3 and T4. Taking a supplement may help, avoid alcohl if you take.

dear friend fasting sugar is done after a period of prolonged fast of about 12 hours, while randon sugar is done during any time of the day, the diagnosis of diabetes is based of a fasting and a 2h post 75 gm glucose load BSL. random sugar indicates towards likely hood of sugar abnormality.

What does Type I Diabetes mean?
What does Type II Diabetes mean?
What is the difference between both?
Lybrate-user, t1 diabetes is an autoimmune disease, where there are antibodies seen which destroy insulin producing cells, this leads to total deficiency of insulin. Person needs insulin for treatment and for survival. Usually ocurs in much younger age. Earlier called as juvenile diabetes. T2 is due to either lack of insulin or resistance to its action or both. This is seen in people with over weight and who are very inactive. It can be treated by oral anti diabetes drugs alone or even insulin. Some times both are used together. Dietary control and regular exercise also are required for better control. Plus this is seen spreading with in the families. But also is preventable if modified lifestyle is adapted.

I am 55 years old male suffering from thyroid from June 2015. I take thyrox-25 regular. How long the medicine is regularly take by me please Advice. Thanking you.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Mr Rajkishor, Treatment for hypothyroidism is for life time. This is a condition due to deficiency of thyroxine an important hormone secreted by thyroid. Therefore, there is a need for supplementation and that too for life time. Plus you have to keep checking TSH levels periodically to see if the dose of thyroxine is adequate or needs an increase.

I, aged 66 years, diabetic and also postural hypertension feeling giddiness most of the time, although, on medicines prescribed by a recognised military hospital.Feeling fast loosing energy, tiredness all the time, panting, already angiography done a year ago with 40% blockage, little over weight.Cant I be treated permanently for diabetes?

MBBS, DGO (cal)
General Physician,
In the treatment of diabetes there no concept of temporary or permanent. You shall have to monitor and continue treatment. Angio report is not at all bad. Brisk walking and medical supervision can take care of it. Better loose those extra Kgs by walking briskly daily. Exercise shall increase your energy and fitness level. Take some fresh fruit regularly, which are not very sweet. Can take a apple a day. It contain high fibre. Only liquid fibre containing fruit so far I know. Papya is good. Nuts are good for you - contains lots of antioxidants. Increase your protein intake either from animal or vegetable source depending on your dietary habit. Sleep tight for at least 8 hours at night. For your Postural Hypotension, Only follow these. Your above practice shall bring down the problem though. 1) Don't start walking after rising from horizontal position. Sit for a minute if no black out start walking. 2) Don't stand in a place for long time or take care while rise from squatting position suddenly. 3) If any time you have a black-out bend forward or sit and bend down your head at or at lower level to heart. And wait till black-out is cleared. It shall take a few seconds. I shall appreciate your feedback.

Dear, please work towards gaining your weight so that its easier for the body to regulate. With regards to foods, avoid any processed and outside foods, avoid salt and if possible avoid sugar as well. Include a lot of vegetables, fruits and pulses milk and milk products. Even mild walking is a good exercise at this stage. Please do not neglect. Please take care! thanks.

5 tips to prevent diabetes

BHMS
Homeopath, Hyderabad
5 tips to prevent diabetes
Regular exercise
Regular physical activity can help you prevent or manage a wide range of health problems and concerns, including stroke, metabolic syndrome, type 2 diabetes, being active boosts high-density lipoprotein (hdl), or" good" cholesterol and decreases unhealthy triglycerides. This keeps your blood flowing smoothly, which also decreases your risk of cardiovascular diseases

Avoid unhealthy food like fat food and junk food
Junk food is the type of food which has no nutritional value and is high in calories and also poses health hazards. The good taste of junk food comes from hydrogenated fats. These fats lead to obesity, atherosclerosis, hypertension, diabetes and heart diseases. Consumption of junk food increases the risk of diabetes to a great extent and should be avoided to the maximum.

Annual blood sugar estimation after age of 35
This would help an individual keep a check on the blood sugar count thus making him/her aware of how much to cut on food and exercise on a regular basis. This would make a person conscious of his eating habits and exercise regime by taking adequate steps to control high blood sugar levels.

Management of stress/change in lifestyle
Stress management has become extremely relevant in today's times as it the catalyst for many diseases specially diabetes. Managing stress levels among adults is extremely important and regular exercise and yoga can be the best way to do it. Life style changes such as continuous travel and irregular work hours can affect the normal functioning of the body leading to lifestyle diseases, diabetes being one of them. If diagnosed with diabetes, inspect your feet daily and seek early care if you get a foot injury. Modern wound dressings with antimicrobial properties like aquacel ag, which is made up of patented hydrofiber technology with ionic silver, have played a pivotal role in treatment of chronic foot ulcers.

Maintain weight as per your height (height in cms- 100 + your weight in kgms.)
If all the aforementioned steps are taken care of maintain correct weight should not be a problem. Obesity and diabetes go hand in hand hence maintain weight is a key part of preventing the onset of diabetes. Weight can be checked by eating right and exercising every day and also by limiting the amount of food intake. One should strictly avoid over eating as it causes problems like weight gain and obesity.
