Based on sugar levels it appears the person probably has t2 dm. In the details no medicine for diabetes has been mentioned. No info on weight & height, also on hba1c% and lipid profile. I need those details to answer. If all cardiac parameters are normal there may not be a need for angio gram.

From the limited info you have given, your wife seems to have late onset type 1 diabetes. If her blood sugars are well controlled, HbA1c is below 7% and she is not gaining weight, Insulin is perfectly OK. But beware of hypoglycemia. For more info on this condition, read my "Health Tips" section.

lybrate-user, Most bakery items are made of maida, which get converted to glucose almost immediately in the system. So called "sugar free" biscuits are therefore no good at all. Better to avoid. As regards sugar substitutes which some people use in place of sugar, are also not really good. Using those often tends to increase craving for sweets. Plus none of them are absolutely safe. Thanks.

Take diet for hypothyroidism:- high-carbohydrate foods such as potatoes, rice, pasta and bread, 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. flax oil, 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 few foods in hypothroidism i.e. caffeine products tea,coffee, tabcco, alcohol / wine , kale, broccoli, spinach, mustard green, cabbage, turnip, millet, cassava, linseeds, pine nuts, soy products as soy milk, tofu, soybeans, soy souce, also avoid stress. Take Some Relax during work. Proper follow up you can feel better and reduce weight also. taking these medicines does not harm to her.

But I have also acidity problem. Especially, after taking a meal some sour substance come to my mouth from the stomach. But after a while it is vanished. When I usually consult with my doctor, he used to give a medicine, namely, Pandosun D. But as well as I want to stop on taking this medicine, after a few days the previous symptoms appear. What can I do in this situation?

Mr. Lybrate-user, hyperacidity and regurgitation problems are likely to be with you. You have to observe certain precautions like: do not keep stomach empty for a long time. Eat small but frequent meals,(every 2 to 3 hours), but total quantity should not exceed your planned daily intake. Plus please keep your blood sugar levels in check - fasting around 100 mg and pp 150 to 160 mg and hba1c% <7. All these things together will help in controlling excess acidity. Avoid spicy foods, sweets and deep fried fods, pastries and junk foods. Reduce the intake of tea or coffee. If you take alcohol that should be stopped and avoid smoking. After meal (lunch or dinner) sit erect for at least 1 hour or more. Exercise regularly for at least 1 hour a day, that helps reduce acidity.

If your daily diet lacks iodine, you can develop a condition known as iodine deficiency disorder or IDD, which is detrimental to your thyroid gland. This condition can be reversed by routine intake of iodized salt. The human body does not produce iodine, so if you do not receive iodine through iodized salt or some other means, your thyroid gland does not produce sufficient levels of thyroid hormone. This condition, known as hypothyroidism, can cause weight gain, fatigue, depression, increased cholesterol levels and muscle cramps.

First ensure that your sugar and bp are under control. Your bmi is 24 and you can do body strengthen ing exercises but before that consult your physician as you have blood pressure also as heavy exercises are not good for some patients of blood pressure.

Take low calorie diet as hypo has low metabolism. Hav more appetite for organic food rather than oily junk. Regular moderate physical activity keeps you much better esp in hypothyroidism.
