Hello, do not discontinue taking your thyroid medication. Get your recent tsh levels done and consult a physician so that your dose of medicine can be adjusted accordingly.

I have sugar type 2 and I take daonil tablets. 5 mg and please tell me that how many times do sugar test in a month.
Depends. If your sugar control is good you may do it less frequently. If your dietary control is at par. Your daily routine like exercise etc. Are regular. You observe on an average your sugar levels at different occasion are fairly the same you may reduce frequency. Take different samples like fasting (should be around 120. Random (should be around 200) and pp (should be around 140-150. Check your hba1c once in 6 months and it should be around 6.5-7.00. With danila (glibenclamide) the problem of hypoglycemia is high. It may be better if you change over to similar group if drugs like glimeperide that is less likely to have this risk. Consult your treating physician to get his advice on this.

First see that you are regular with medication and was taking it empty stomach keeping 45 minutes gap between thyroxine and breakfast. If everything was correct even then Tsh increased on thyroxine 25 ug, then increase dose to 50 ug daily especially if married and planning pregnancy.

You can control diabetes by following a proper balanced diet chart. You need to have more of whole grain fibrous food rather than refined food product. Eat at regular time interval. Do exercise regularly. Avoid taking sweet products. Eat fruits, vegetables in liberal amount.

Hi lybrate-user, this sounds like plantar fasciitis which is an inflammatory condition of the foot. This can be confirmed by consulting a pain physician/ orthopedician and taking a foot x ray. Simple things that can be done include rest, icing your foot/sole twice a day, orthotic plantar arch supports, elevation of foot in the night on a pillow. Sometimes patients require injections if the conservative management fails. Please confirm diagnosis and proceed.

I sweat a lot on slight physical activity. My thyroid test is also normal. What could be the problem ? It irritates a lot. Any medicine?

MBBS, DNB (General Medicine)
Endocrinologist, Delhi
Sweating is meant to cool your body when you physically strain yourself. Sweating - contrary to popular belief - indicates healthy state. It indicates that your sweat glands are responsive and your skin is healthy/hydrated. Medicines are for diseases - sweating is not a disease.

Mr. Lybrate-user, bllod glucose 190 mg, is it a fasting or pp level? if fasting then it is too high. If pp then it is not such a serious problem.

How to change my eating habits for type 2 diabeties?

Diploma in Nutrition
Dietitian/Nutritionist,
How to change my eating habits for type 2 diabeties?
Hello , national institutes of health (nih) recommends about 2, 000 to 2, 400 calories a day for medium-sized or large men who are physically active, large men at a healthy weight or who are medium-sized, or large women who are very physically active. Get most or all of your carbohydrates from high-fiber sources like vegetables, beans, fruits, and whole grains. High-fiber foods are digested more slowly, which helps keep your blood sugar levels stable. Protein can help stabilize your blood sugar since it takes time to digest. Even so, be sure to choose lean meats, fish, and non- or low-fat dairy products. Protein should provide about 12 to 20 percent of your daily calories. Add omega-3 fat to your diet which will balance your blood sugar. Let me know if I can suggest you the best sources of healthy food.
