Hi lybrate user. Your sugar levels indicate that you are in a diabetic stage. Random glucose test. Reading above 200 is considered as diabetic. Since your weight is also much below normal. You should get hba1c test done to confirm your sugar levels + + plus get a complete body package tests done to see if you are facing any other problem. I think you would have done this test at home or relatives with the home glucose test gadgets. Please get a complete health check done including thyroid, blood, lipid, liver, sugar, urine. Etc. And refer to a physician.

Mr. Lybrate-user, you should have been on thyroxine hormone, as tsh is too high, showing severe hypothyroidism. Plus you will have to avoid soy beans, soy containing products, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, radish, peanuts and coffee. Consume good deal of green leafy vegetables, salads and fruits. Use whole grain flour for chapati nad roti. Do not use food made of refined flour like maida. Plus you will have to take a restricted diet that provides exact calories based on ideal body weight (80 kgs). Your bmi is 34.87 kgs showing grade 2 obesity. Most important is immediate tsh reduction. Thanks for the question.

Mr. Lybrate-user, if she has diabetes since long then it is essential to get her retinal examination done urgently, because diabetes affects retina badly. This is done by dilating the pupil. It is not testing for glasses. Secondly good control means fasting should be closer to 100 mg, pp 150 to 160 mg & hba1c% <7. If this is achieved and maintained then complications can be delayed or prevented. Tsh value of 10.8 mu/l, means hypothyroidism is present and is not in control. Also needs to be treated. Treatment with thyroxine tablets with appropriate dse should be initiated immediately. Plus regular exercise for 1 hour a day is also needed. She should avoid sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries, other bakery items and items made out of maida. Should consume whole grain products always. Avoid soy beans, soya containing products, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, radish, mustard, peanuts and coffee. (fo hypothyroidism). If any doubts please come in a private conversation with all details like fasting, pp sugar levels, hba1c%, dietary habits, extent of daily exercise, present treatment with dosage then I will be able to guide specifically. Thanks.

Dear lybrate user, one of the major nutritional substance required for human body is carbohydrate. We take carbohydrate in the form of rice, wheat, sugar etc. The complex molecules of carbohydrate are broken down into simple glucose molecules during digestion & released in the blood stream to be absorbed by the muscle cells. Muscle cells utilise the glucose molecules to release energy by breaking down those glucose molecules. Insulin hormone plays a vital role in the absorption of the glucose molecules by the muscle cells. In abnormal conditions, either due to less production of insulin or due to resistance to insulin, the process of absorption of glucose by the muscles comes to a stand still. The glucose molecules remains in the bloodstream which results in the increase in the blood sugar level. The failure of utilisation of the glucose molecules by the muscle cells results in production of less energy than normal condition. This is externally manifested as the fatigue & tiredness of the patient. This excess amount of blood sugar compels the kidney to function more than normal level in order to excrete the blood sugar molecules through urine. As a result the patient suffers from frequent urination. This abnormal condition is clinically known as diabetes mellitus. Once a patient is diagnosed with diabetes he has to take regular medicine to keep his blood sugar level within normal limits. However, the patient does not need to take medicine unless his/her post. Prandial blood sugar level reaches 200. If post. Prandial blood sugar level reaches 200 then patient can take homoeopathic mother tincture gymnema sylvestra q, 30 drops, thrice daily, after meals, in a cup of water. Along with intake of medicines the patient need to walk at least 1 hour daily without any interval. In order to decrease the intake of carbohydrate in diet the patient should avoid rice, sweet dishes, fruits, cold drinks, fast foods, alcoholic beverages, potato etc.

I am a diabetic since last 2 years. I am too fat. I tried ayurvedic medication but nothing worked. Prescribe some medicine for normal daily life.

MBBS
General Physician, Delhi
You are not clear in your question whether you want help for diabetes or obesity. For diabetes, you may get your fasting blood glucose and hba1c checked and consult a physician nearby. There are many anti-diabetic medications available in the market and choice of drug varies from person to person. For obesity, yo need to make lifestyle changes first. Quit alchohol and smoking, eat lots of fibers, avoid eating fatty food, exercise daily. If you are morbidly obese, you may also go for bariatric suregry to help reduce weight. Visit your nearest bariatric surgeon for more details of the procedure.

I heard sweet potato is acceptable for type 2 diabetes. How true?

M.Sc -Food and Nutrition, B.Sc. - Dietitics / Nutrition
Dietitian/Nutritionist,
I heard sweet potato is acceptable for type 2 diabetes. How true?
Hi the glycemic index of a 150-g sweet potato, boiled with its skin for 30 minutes, is 46 which. So boiled sweet potato has low glycemic index. The glycemic index helps measure a food's impact on your blood sugar levels. Foods with a high glycemic index have a rapid effect on your blood sugar. Consuming these foods causes a blood sugar spike, which in turn leads to blood sugar crash. Low glycemic index foods increase your blood sugar levels gradually, so your blood sugar remains more stable after your meal. Best wishes.

I am having uric acid and my joints are paining. What should I do?

MD - Internal Medicine, MBBS
Endocrinologist,
I am having uric acid and my joints are paining. What should I do?
A high uric acid level can be caused when your body either produces too much uric acid or your kidneys don't eliminate uric acid rapidly enough. A high uric acid level may cause increasingly frequent attacks of gout, or it may never cause problems. A high uric acid level may also cause some people to develop kidney stones or kidney failure. And some people with a high uric acid level also develop high blood pressure, heart disease or chronic kidney disease, but it's often unclear whether this is a direct cause or merely an early warning sign of these conditions. Factors that may cause a high uric acid level in your blood include: Diuretic medications (water pills),Drinking too much alcohol,Genetics (inherited tendencies),hypothyroidism (underactive thyroid),Immune-suppressing drugs,Niacin, or vitamin B-3, obesity,psoriasis, Purine-rich diet — organ meat, game meat, anchovies, herring, gravy, dried beans, driedpeas, mushrooms and other foods Renal insufficiency — inability of the kidneys to filter waste Tumor lysis syndrome — a rapid release of cells into the blood caused by certain cancers or by chemotherapy for those cancers,Also, you may be monitored for high uric acid levels when undergoing chemotherapy or radiation treatment for cancer. Avoid protein diets, avoid more milk products. bad habits , fast food/fat/oily,salty foods. Coffee, smoking, alcohol intake. Non-veg., take whole grain,oats,green veg.,plenty of water in day time, 1 glass of water at night before bed. Take tab. Zyloric 100 mg once a day. Tab. Ulracet sos for pain in joints.

Tips To Help You Reduce The Risk Of Type 2 Diabetes

Tips To Help You Reduce The Risk Of Type 2 Diabetes

Here are some tips to help you reduce your risk of type 2 diabetes.

Check your risk of diabetes. Take the life! risk assessment test and learn more about your risk of developing type 2 diabetes. A 12+ score indicates that you are at high risk and may be eligible for the life! program - a free victorian lifestyle modification program that helps you reduce your risk of type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease.

Manage your weight. Excess body fat, particularly if stored around the abdomen, can increase the body&#x2019;s resistance to the hormone insulin. This can lead to type 2 diabetes.

Exercise regularly. Moderate physical activity on most days of the week helps manage weight, reduce blood glucose levels and may also improve blood pressure and cholesterol.

Eat a balanced, healthy diet. Reduce the amount of fat in your diet, especially saturated and trans fats. Eat more fruit, vegetables and high-fibre foods. Cut back on salt. 

Limit takeaway and processed foods. convenience meals are usually high in salt, fat and kilojoules. It's best to cook for yourself using fresh ingredients whenever possible.

Limit your alcohol intake. Too much alcohol can lead to weight gain and may increase your blood pressure and triglyceride levels. Men should have no more than two standard drinks a day and women should have no more than one. 

Quit smoking. Smokers are twice as likely to develop diabetes as non-smokers.

Control your blood pressure. Most people can do this with regular exercise, a balanced diet and by keeping a healthy weight. In some cases, you might need medication prescribed by your doctor.

Reduce your risk of cardiovascular disease. Diabetes and cardiovascular disease have many risk factors in common, including obesity and physical inactivity.

See your doctor for regular check-ups. As you get older, it's a good idea to regularly check your blood glucose, blood pressure and blood cholesterol levels.

To control hypothyroidism thyroxine is required. However, guidelines usually say to start treatment when tsh levels cross 10 milli units, as between 5.5 to about 9.9 milli units it is considered as subclinical hypothyroidism. Unless a person has definite symptoms of thyroid deficiency treatment is not started with thyroxine. Even if it is given a lower dose is recommended. To begin with 100 mcg dosage was a bit too high. That is the reason your tsh levels have gone down to 0.082 milli units / ml. Even now the dose of 75 mcg is high. With treatment tsh should be in the range of 3 to 4 milli units / ml so you may reduce the dose.
