Sugar levels should be maintained as close as possible near normal. You may shift to tablet k - glim m 1 to begin with once a day, check the levels if still high increase one more tablet in the night. Also exercise, avoid sweets and deep fried foods.

I am 62 years old my fasting blood sugar 120 post lunch 180 I am using melmet s/r 1000mg half morning half ager noon and 1000mg night is it correct dose? I am cabg please reply.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
You take 1000 mg both times and add glimi 1 mg in the morning and inform privately. Watch for hypoglycemia and carry some sugar /glucose in case of hypoglycemia. 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.

Hi at tsh level of 6.91 milli units/ml, no treatment is advised. Hormone replacement is suggested only once tsh levels cross 10 milli units. Hypothyroidism is a condition occurring due to thyroxine hormone deficiency. This hormone is needed for brain development and normal functioning. Plus it is required for multiple metabolic functions in the body. If that is not made available, then there can be very serious consequences like myxedema. Plus in females when tsh levels are high, conceiving is not possible, fetal development is affected, brain development of fetus is affected, miscarriages occur. So please decide for your self what you want to do. In the world tody, with out taking thyroxine tablets there is no treatment for hypothyroidism.

Hi My age 60 taking medicine for diabetes. Not in control fasting its 160 to 170 after lunch 190 to 200 how to control.
Mr. Lybrate-user, your blood sugar values particularly the fasting is much high. Pp value is not that bad, but better to be closer to 150 to 160 mg. Most importantly hba1c% should be <7. Achieving these values is possible by following things: appropriate drugs and dosage adjustment, dietary restriction and regular exercise so as to maintain near normal weight. (ideal body weight = height in cms- 100 x 0.9 = kgs). Plus avoiding sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries, sweetened aerated drinks, high fat milk products and fructose corn syrup containing products as well as highly processed products. Also refrain from alcohol and smoking. Consume more of green leafy vegetables and salads and permitted fruits about 100 g a day. Daily exercise of at least 1 hour is a must.

If you are diagnosed with “pre-diabetes,” can you eat right and exercise enough for it to go away?
Mr Praveen, If one has pre diabetes, then a modified life style has to be adapted, which means : exercise regularly for more than 1 hour a day, avoid excess sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods and pastries. Avoid smoking and alcohol, maintain normal weight, consume more of green leafy vegeables and fruits. Avoid sweetened aerated drinks and fructose corn syrup containing products. These thing followed regularly can help one remain free from diabetes.

Insulin dependent since 2000 till now facing same sugar problem. Hence suggestion required please.
To achieve better sugar control you have to do self monitoring of blood glucose and set up a system of sending sms message to your doctor on daily basis and decide on a target fasting / pp blood sugarleve and up titrate insulin dosage every alternate day by 2 units till target level is reached. Then the same can be continued.

Hye. Thankyou for the query. For a diabetic it is important to understand that you don't have to just randomly restrict foods. You need to learn how to eat more sensibly. The body needs nutrients as per the activity levels or the work you have indulged in. You cannot just not eat dinner or skip eating a certain food randomly. You must eat as per the body's needs. So if dinner is late have a lighter dinner. Avoid fried foods, heavy non vegetarian foods. Stick to whole grains, vegetables and salads. Try to take a mid meal of salads, dairy two hours or so prior to dinner so you don't overeat dinner. If it's very late try to take a small stroll of 15 minutes after dinner to avoid sluggish digestion. Avoid lying down as soon as you have eaten your meal.
