lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Blood glucose 243 mg (fasting or after food or random not mentioned) is high. It signifies you have diabetes. It needs to be treated with appropriate medications, diet restrictions and regular exercise. There is no other option. So if you are willing to start the treatment with my guidelines, then please come in a private conversation with following details: FBG, Pp glucose levels, HbA1c%, dietary pattern, extent of daily exercise, lipid profile and BP readings. Then I will be able to give you specific treatment guidelines and other precautions those need to be followed. Otherwise, initiate treatment with guidance from your own doctor locally. Do not neglect or postpone it. Thanks.

Uncontrolled blood sugar can result in vaginal infections and urinary tract infection. Hypothyroidism at this age is not going to cause anything gynecological problems. Follow up regularly with your physician for diabetes and hypothyroidism. No need to have routine visits with gynaecologist.

Diabetes - 6 Lifestyle Changes You Must Do!

Diabetes - 6 Lifestyle Changes You Must Do!

Diabetes is very restrictive - living with the disease however does not imply that you stop enjoying. By bringing about certain changes in your lifestyle, you can still live your life to the fullest. For better management of your disease, these are some of the changes that you can make to improve your blood sugar levels and keep your condition under control.

1. Stay fit with physical activity: The first lifestyle change you can make is to increase your level of physical activity. This can help you in burning extra calories, thereby keeping your blood sugar levels in check. Spending 30 minutes a day exercising is ideal. If you’re not fond of exercising or don’t have the time for it, even performing simple activities like walking, vacuuming or doing your laundry can help to lower glucose levels while burning calories.

2. Maintain a healthy BMILikewise, try to lose those extra kilos that may be weighing you down and increasing your sugar levels. You don’t have to lose all the weight in one go, you can do so little by little. To lose weight gradually and consequently achieve a healthy BMI, you must have more of fruit and vegetables and less of sugary items and processed food along with exercising regularly.

3. Make the right food choices: When it comes to food, you should consume whole grain foods instead of refined carbohydrate alternatives. Make every meal a balanced one with starches, fats and proteins included in the right amount. Furthermore, avoid beverages that come with high sucrose or fructose content, as they don’t offer much in terms of nutrition, and instead just add to your calorie count. Some of the foods you can include in your diet are bitter gourd, cinnamon, green tea, amla, jamun etc.


4. Have a fixed quantity of food: Apart from knowing the right foods to eat and the balance that you need to maintain between the different types, it is also important to know about portion sizes and carbohydrate count. This is because among the different food classes, it’s chiefly carbohydrates that influence your blood glucose levels. So, you need to keep track of the amount of carbohydrates that you’ve consumed in order to arrive at the right insulin dosage.
In addition to keeping count of your carbohydrate consumption, understanding the right portion sizes for the different types of food is also extremely vital for better management of your ailment. Measuring cups and spoons should be employed to arrive at the right quantities of food.

5. Eat your meals at fixed timings: As a diabetic, you should not go longer than 5 hours without eating as it can cause your blood sugar levels to fall dramatically, making you feel weak and faint. Instead you should have your meals at fixed hours, spacing them out at regular intervals. This will ensure your blood sugar levels are always at an optimum point.

6. Control your stressStress is a risk factor for Type 2 diabetes. When you’re under stress, your body produces stress hormones (cortisol) that can cause your blood sugar levels (and even blood pressure)to rise. So, preventing or controlling stress becomes necessary to keep your diabetes under control.

How can I control lifestyle diseases like blood pressure, cholesterol & diabetes?
Mr. Lybrate-user, as you have stated these are called" lifestyle" diseases, meaning if we adapt a more positive and healthy lifestyle, these can be prevented. A healthy lifestyle means: exercising regularly, (everyday of the week, at least 1 hour), maintaining near normal weight, maintaining a bmi of 23 kgs/m2, refraining from alcohol, smoking, high fat foods, bakery items, pastries, aerated sweetened drinks, red meat, egg yolk etc. Also controlling excess salt intake. This kind of lifestyle is helpful in keeping those conditions mentioned by you.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. WHen one is on treatment with adequate dose of Levothyroxine, TSH is maintained around 3 to 4mU/L. At that level all the symptoms are in check. If TSH level goes higher (as in your case), it suggests that your thyroxine dose is not enough. Therefore, your doctor has suggested the additional dose of the same. Please check tSH level after 6 to 8 weeks of taking that doe, to find out if TSH has come down as mentioned above. Thanks.

There is lot of info on net but selection should be as per medical history, body nature and availability of certain herbs. As a primary measure, karela powder (or cap. Karela), methidana seeds or powder, turmeric powder, shigru (sahinjana) and meshashringi, manjishtha capsules/ powder should be used to address both the problems. Prolonged use will show curing trends without side effects.
