My wife is in 8 month pregnancy ,her sugar level fasting is 117 and PP is 150 . Is this fearable one ? How to back to normal? if she takes insulin , will it affect the foetus ? if she takes insulin injection , will she become dependent to the insulin? after delivery will it be back to normal?

Repeat her fbs/ppbs if you have doubts about this repprt. If she takes insulin now, she will not be dependant on it for the rest of her life but she might or might not have to take oral meds after pregnancy.It will depend on her blood sugar levels after pregnancy.

Mr. Lybrate-user, you have grade one obesity with 33.34 kgs/m2 bmi. In this situation weight reduction is very tough. On top of it you have hypothyroidism, which causes weight gain, if not in complete control. To achieve very good control tsh levels should be between 3 to 4 milli units /l. I am not aware of your tsh levels. If they are high please see that those levels come down to as mentioned above. Very strict diet control and regular exercise can help you to cut 5 to 8% of present weight. Thanks.

Mr. Lybrate-user, it is good to know that you are keen on reducing weight by starting a diet programme. However, to suggest a specific diet, I need more details like fbs< ppbs, hba1c%, extent of daily exercise, current diet & bmi it is better if you come in a private conversation with above details, then I can give a specific diet suitable to your needs.

Bed rest, plenty of oral fluids and paracetamol tablets 500 mg 3 times a day for 2-3 days may be tried. However it is very important to keep blood sugar levels in normal range. For which frequent blood tests and monitoring of medications is must. Diabetes medicines should not be discontinued. If fever persists see your doctor for clinical examination, related tests, diagnosis and treatment.

Diabetes is a condition wherein the endocrine function of the pancreas has reduced. That is insulin secretion is reduced. So maintaining a good control is about substituting the deficient insulin, controlling and regulating diet to avoid glucose overload - whether the insulin will feel overwhelmed and lastly keep up body activity to avoid excess storage of extra glucose. But thats all about maintaining - that problem is consistently present and so is your treatment. Coming out of treatment regimen - however - possible only if the original cause of the problem rectified - i. E. Insulin secretion maintained or increased. Hence, medicines can be tapered and may be finally stopped if the pancreas is able to resume secretion of insulin at normal ranges

Treatment for kidney stone depends on where the stone is, its size and whether it is causing obstruction. So all this is required before commenting further. For foot pain see a physiotherapist.

I was operated for Papillary thyroid carcinoma and doing good now, currently on Eltroxin 200 mcg. I am looking for a good Antioxidant supplement which has below properties and Which can be used for long term: 1.Kills Microbes in body 2.Strength Immune system. 3.Which alkaline body 4.Which can keep all organs healthy. Please suggest a name of Good supplement. Regards.

BHMS
Homeopath, Barabanki
Dear lybrate-user Don't expect miracles. Remember antioxidants don't kill microbes, They don't give immunity For immunity and killing microbes body has its own system. Since you just recovered out of papillary thyroid carcinoma it's better you avoid experimenting with antioxidants. Antioxidants are useful but for those who are not sick. Final piece of advice; you want to gain good health; follow your physician advice or ask him to refer you to good dietitian and instead of gogelling about your disease, focus on your new life.

Mr Jackey There is no evidence showing tea drinking leads to diabetes or aggravates it. In fact there are reports showing drinking bck tea 3 cups a day does help in reducing blood glucose. Particularly drinking decaffinated tea reduces diabetes risk by as much as 25%.

You are on correct treatment . You need to adjust diet also to bring the sugar level below 100 in fasting stage and check in lab also as the glucometer reading is always higher than lab reading. You check HbA1c also . do exercises also

Homeopath,
I am diabetes patient. I have tried many treatments but no one works. Can you help me in this?
Dear lybrate user, one of the major nutritional substance required for human body is carbohydrate. We take carbohydrate in the form of rice, wheat, sugar etc. The complex molecules of carbohydrate are broken down into simple glucose molecules during digestion & released in the blood stream to be absorbed by the muscle cells. Muscle cells utilise the glucose molecules to release energy by breaking down those glucose molecules. Insulin hormone plays a vital role in the absorption of the glucose molecules by the muscle cells. In abnormal conditions, either due to less production of insulin or due to resistance to insulin, the process of absorption of glucose by the muscles comes to a stand still. The glucose molecules remains in the bloodstream which results in the increase in the blood sugar level. The failure of utilisation of the glucose molecules by the muscle cells results in production of less energy than normal condition. This is externally manifested as the fatigue & tiredness of the patient. This excess amount of blood sugar compels the kidney to function more than normal level in order to excrete the blood sugar molecules through urine. As a result the patient suffers from frequent urination. This abnormal condition is clinically known as diabetes mellitus. Once a patient is diagnosed with diabetes he has to take regular medicine to keep his blood sugar level within normal limits. However, the patient does not need to take medicine unless his/her post. Prandial blood sugar level reaches 200. If post. Prandial blood sugar level reaches 200 then patient can take homoeopathic mother tincture gymnema sylvestra q, 30 drops, thrice daily, after meals, in a cup of water. Along with intake of medicines the patient need to walk at least 1 hour daily without any interval. In order to decrease the intake of carbohydrate in diet the patient should avoid rice, sweet dishes, fruits, cold drinks, fast foods, alcoholic beverages, potato etc.

Thanks for the query. Insulin is usually recommended to be taken half an hour before food. Because by the time digestion of food converts it to glucose, insulin is available for action. Insulin does not cause any other side effects. Occasionally if food delayed or if inadequate food is taken, then there is a possibility of glucose level going down (hypoglycemia). If you have any other doubts please come back. Thanks.

Hello lybrate user, if in spite of taking oral medicine to the optimum and also making some dietary changes-your fasting blood sugar is 350, then you are highly uncontrolled. You are delaying the possibility of the start of insulin but believe me the kind of sugar levels that you have currently -insulin is the only reality for you. As days pass with this high sugar level even the small capacity that your body has for this production of insulin will also keep on decreasing. There is a thing called glucose toxicity which basically means that the exposure of high amount of sugar is toxic to the body cells that produce insulin. Your attitude and commitment should complement your doctor's efforts to save you from a bad situation later in your life. I totally agree that you have a choice in the decision-making of your treatment but when that decision starts to endanger your health and life - then you should let your Dr. Take the better decision for you. Help your doctor help you. Regards.
