Mr. Lybrate-user mustafa, the glucose levels mentioned look fairly good. Ideally fasting should be closer to 100 mg (as it is now), pp should be 150 to 160 mg and hba1c%<7 (ideally <6.8%). Your sugar control can be improved by diet and exercise to the required ideal level. As regards the exact diet, it has to be very specific and individualised, based on present dietary practice, sugar levels, extent of daily exercise and present dietary pattern. So I prescribe the same if you supply all those details. In the mean time I am giving general guide lines as to which foods to be taken or avoided. Avoid sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries, sweetened aerated drinks, red meat, high fat milk products, fructose corn syrup containing products and highly processed foods. Refrain from alcohol and smoking completely. Consume more of green leafy vegetables & salads, permitted fruits (100 g a day). Use whole grain products and whole grain flour for chapati and roti, no maida. Your diet should give calories based on ideal body weight, exercise and sugar levels. Regards.

Are you still on medications? are these reports done while you are on medications? in that case, diet alone is unlikely to keep your sugars controlled. If you need convincing, you can try reducing the medicine doses gradually and continue to diet while checking your sugars every alternate day. If the sugars start to rise, then it means the medicines are absolutely required.

I am 53 years old. For last 17 years I am taking Zyloric tab to control the level of uric acid my kidney and liver function is OK. Can Benzoic acid (homoeopathic medicine) lowers the uric acid. My uric acid level is always between 6 and 7. My cousin also have this problem. What is the difference between Aamvat and Vatarakta.

Ayurveda,
I am a ayurvedic doctor, so don't know about benzoic acid. Vatrakta is compared with gout and aamvata with rheumatoid arthritis. According to ayurveda you r suffering from vatarakta.

My age is 28 years .I have been on contraceptive pill named dronis 30, (dropirenone and ethinyloestradiol)for 1 year after that my blood sugar level incrased a lot (140 on empty stomac). Now I want to get pregnant soon. Is it possible i will have increased thyroid also after taking the pill

The pills are not responsible for sugar and thyroid problems. Most likely, these are coincidental. First control your thyroid and sugar before planning pregnancy, otherwise there may be difficulty during pregnancy. But controlled sugar and controlled thyroid are relatively safe for pregnancy. Al the best.

Hi If fever has not come down with mefenamic acid, use paracetamol plus ibuprofen combinations three times a day. Give plenty of fluids orally, particularly ORS. Keep her well hydrated. Plus for acute conditions it is better to consult your local doctor, Thanks.

I am 67+ year old. I am taking diabetes n high bp medicine for last 8 years. Both are always under control. Some 8months back my left hand began to shake slightly, doctors diagnosed as nervous weakness. I took medicines prescribed by doctor. But the shaking still persists. What should l do?

Shaking that gets worse when you try to maintain one position? a family history of tremor? as many as one in four people develop essential tremor as they age. You are more likely to develop essential tremor if you have a parent or sibling with the condition. Requires detailed questioning so as to ascertain your personality and to treat you symptomatically. Treatment is available, safe and without side effects in biochemic system of medication. Consult me in private.

In hypothyroidism:-- where there is deficiency of thyroxine hormone leading to sluggishness, tired feeling, weight increase, slow heart beats, intolerance to cold, swelling of legs, feet and face, difficulty in concentrating and at times in speech. Treatment for hypothyroidism is giving thyroxine tablets. Avoid bad habits . Avoid stress. Some Relax during work. Drink more water, 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,

Yes it is safe. Its non veg sources which increases uric acid due to high purine content, high purine is to be avoided in gout, not high protein which is a misconception widespread even among doctors. But gout remains silent for many years before coming again. Specially if your uric acid remains above 6. Was the first episode really gout? increased uric acid doesn't mean its gout.

Hello doctor, I am having thyroid. TSH is about to be 44. So can suggest what should we do to reduce this TSH to the normal.. And any fundamental risk? Please answer at the earliest. Regards.

You might be suffering from overt hypothyroidism which requires thyroxine suppliment. Get your Free T3 Free T4 and anti TPO antibodies test and consult any diabetologist or endocrinologist for starting Levothyroxine dose. TSH takes around 6 to 8 weeks to reflect its change after starting thyroxine suppliment.
