Your mom can breast feed the baby. In fact the breast milk may improve further if she takes the medicines to correct her high TSH or hypothyroid status by consulting doctor.

Once you have diabetes may be you have to learn to live with it life long .(So far we have not found Cure for diabetes -however in near future we may find some answers) You may not require to take medicines life long since you are over weight and you can reduce your weight to near normal .In that case you can get rid of medicines and can be managed on life style modifications along with suitable exercise .Usually 1 hr exercise or brisk walk and adhering to low cal, low fat, high protein diet plans helps in weight reduction. Its always very important to understand diabetes properly so that you can get rid of fear and make friendship with diabetes. You can always be person with Diabetes but never be patient with diabetes.

Prediabetic patients ideally should not be started on medications like metformin. Preferabally they should try and learn life style modification with proper nutritious diet and regular 30-45 mintutes exercise .In view that you are already under weight you should discontinue metformin / glycomet immediately. Even in confirmed diabetic patients who are under weight I usually avoid giving drugs like T. Glycomet.

I am using lantus insulin and volibo .25 (before lunch and dinner) Can I shift to humalog + nph of pre mixed.

Lantus insulin is long acting insulin. If patients fasting/PP Sugars are not under control and and Hba1c is persistently above 8 % then some times it is advisable to go for premix insulin like humalog + NPH insulin for better glycemic control and maybe twice in a day injections. If you have recent post heart bypass surgery then it is very important to maintain Hba1c below 7%.

In one of the articles, shunning sugar completely was advised for various enumerated health benefits. Do we have to stop eating sweet fruits like mango, chikoo,dates, custard apple etc? .

I believe you have read probably an article stating that white sugar does not have any nutritional values except adding calories so reducing or avoiding it is beneficial to health ,however all fruits have natural sugar fructose along with lots of vitamins ,fibre and many more petrochemicals useful to our bodies hence can be eaten at proper timings and calculated portions even if you have diabetes.

Kindly do your HBA1C, TSH, CBC, complete lipid profile ,S.creat ,urine .R to plan or change your current treatment. Low carbohydrate ,low fat, high protein diet with regular exercise is recommended .You seem to be under weight for your height .Some times Diabetes in young (lean) requires insulin therapy and may require C.PEPTIDE, S INSULIN and GAD antibody tests.

I'm 28 years old. My grandfather is diabetic. From last week I'm itching problem, especially on legs, thighs, arms, severe during night. I used razor also to shave my legs and arms and also excessive dandruff. I got blood test done. My sugar (fasting) was 96, hb was 9 and uric acid was 5.4. What could be the reason for this itching?

To, confirm DM you need to have blood sugar fasting above 126 mg% ,pp above 200 mg% and HbA1C >6.4% Your HB is low so you could be having nutritional anemia and may need iron and Bcomplex vitamin supplements for may be more than 3 months. Regarding your itching you could be having infection on skin after using razor. You need to show some clinician or skin specialist regarding your skin problem.

All persons with diabetes should try and maintain Blood sugar fasting and pp between 100 and 140 mg % and HBA1C below 7% to prevent complications of diabetes and infections .You need to adjust dosage of your diabetic drugs along with life style modification. You may benefit by complete body profile check up to diagnose the reason for sickness .As you can also have any other disease may not related to diabetes.
