Hello, As thyroid function keeps on fluctuating if you are having hypothyroidism, so you need to control it's function with medication whether allopathic/ ayurvedic or homoeopathic. Along with that recommend you to practice yoga regularly.

Mr. lybrate-user, A person with long standing diabetes should be vary carefull about injuries to feet and toes. Because of neuropathy and improper blood supply the wounds do not heal. So please see that blood glucose is well under control with fasting closer to 100 mg, PP 160 to 170 mg & HbA1c% <7 As regards the present wound it is necessary to consult a diabetic foot specialist immediately. Thanks.

Most important thing is to have very strict blood glucose control, like fasting closer to 100 mg, pp 150 to 160 mg & hba1c% <6.8. Hence, you will have to work to wards achieving the above levels. As regards stress in the job, well you will have to learn to relax and reduce that stress level. There are multiple methods or ways to learn relaxation techniques. As regards relieving sex problems, there are a number of drugs available, which can be used.

Mr. Lybrate-user, rat bite injury has to be properly cleaned, dressed regularly. Plus if needed some antibiotic may be taken for 5 to 7 days. Most importantly control of blood sugar (fasting near 100 g, pp 150 to 160 mg and hba1c% <7), is absolutely essential. Because if sugar level remains high, then wound healing is badly affected, particularly in the lower limbs. So you have to take appropriate treatment to correct sugar levels. Thanks for the question.

Should Anti- diabetic tablets & Insulin be taken on the day of testing?

Treatment should take all the medicine and insulin injection advised on the day of testing. Further more the regular time of taking meals and medicine is to be followed. All meals taken should be as per routine and not less or more
Diabetes once diagnosed is a life long disease which has to be controlled by Diet, Exercise & Medicine, A careless attitude towards diabetes can cost the patient heavily in terms of eye & kidney damage later on life.
