Everything we eat will convert into sugars, protein and fats by body. Sugars breakdown inside the body and produce energy for which insulin is necessary. Whenever the pancreas stops producing insulin. Sugar levels tend to raise in the blood and alters several body metabolism and prone to infection. This condition is known as diabetes. There is no cure for diabetes yet. Strict diet, physical activity and medication will improve the quality of life and prolong life time. Check his sugar levels regularly both fasting and 2 hours after breakfast. Take anti diabetic medication prescribed by a physician regularly. Contact if need further assistance.

Hello, professor, first thing is try reduce weight by at least 5 to 8%. Your ideal body weight should be (177.5 - 100 = 77.5 x 0.9= about 70 ks). Reduction in weight itself will correct raised blood glucose level. So please exercise daily (brisk walking for 1 hour a day), take restricted diet, giving calories based on ideal body weight, extent of daily exercise. If you are not on treatment for diabetes then with the levels shown it looks like a pre - diabetes situation, which can be brought under control by adapting above mentioned methods. Thanks.

Avoid stress. Some Relax during work. Drink more water, high-carbohydrate foods such as potatoes, rice, pasta and bread. 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 oily foods,junk foods, go for walk. Tests every 3 to 6 months.

I am a diabetic person suffering for last 15 yrs. High was 336 one day & it occured 4 times. Taking 2 mg glimpstar in morning &. 5mg before dinner. Problem is I have to go to urinal more than 3 times in the night.

Dear , as your report suggests that your diabetes is not under control. As high sugar level in blood increases the frequency of urination especially at night. So you must control it stringently and strictly with either change in the dosage of the existing drug or your doctor will have to change the drug. At the same time you need have better control of diet and to effect that decrease sugar, fats and calories in your diet. Another important step would be to increase your physical activities like walking, swimming or exercises. Even after bringing sugar level to around 140-160 nocturnal frequency persists then consider enlargement of prostate should be considered as it is an important cause at your age. Last but not the least keep away from constipation as it increases urinary problems.

General Physician,

The value you have mentioned is of fasting or after eating? You can control your blood sugar through light exercises (sp. brisk walking), proper intake of diet and don't take much stress/ tension/ anxiety, etc. No need to go for medication.

Hello, Madam, If blood glucose levels are well controlled, that is fasting closer to 100 mg, PP 150 to 160 mg & HbA1c<6.8, then your health remains in good shape. Cravings can only be controlled by self discipline. There is no medicine for that. Sweets have to be avoided as they increase blood glucose level very rapidly. High glucose in blood is the main reason for the long term complications associated with diabetes. Plus looking at your weight and height it is clear that you are having grade 1 obesity with a BMI of 31.25 kgs/M2 (normal <23 kgs/M2). Which means you are carrying 20 kgs extra weight. That is the main reason for cravings and uncontrolled diabetes. You will have to work on reducing at least 5 to 8 % of current weight and maintain that. Thanks.

If you do not change your lifestyle you will never be able to regulate your sugar levels and triglycerides. Stop smoking and drinking immediately. 1. Exercise at least 5 times per week 2. Eat whole/unprocessed foods at regular intervals, while being aware of physical hunger/fullness cues 3. Sleep 7-9 hours per night 4. Don’t engage in extreme diets 5. Stay consistent with your habits 6. Incorporate non-exercise physical activity 7. Ignore food advertising You need a fat loss diet which comprises of whole grains like jowar, bajra, wheat, brown rice, pulses like moong, musoor, bengal gram, lots of vegetables, fruits, eggs, fish, chicken, paneer, healthy oil, nuts and seeds. You need to eat them in right proportion. Avoid eating sugar and sweets, refined foods like maida, noodles pasta, White rice and products, bread. Drink a lot of water.

Mr. Lybrate-user, hypothyroidism is a thyroid hormone deficiency disorder. This hormone is required for development and functioning of brain, plus for all vital metabolic activities of the body. With out which there can be serious metabolic problems. Hence supplement of this hormone is the only treatment. Hence thre is cure for this condition. Taking thyroid hormone in appropriate dose is the only option.
