Dear you need to make sure that your diet & exercise are regular. Inspite of that if your sugars are not under control, then you need to add some other medications or if not then insulin. The dose of your current medications is maximum &will not help much further by increasing its dose. Please consult your doctor for the same.

I am having type 2 diabetes. My last hba1c in the month of march was 8.76. I am taking metformin 1gm bd, acarbous 25mg tds. But the results are not convincing what should I need to do.

First, you should do brisk walking daily for atleast 40 minutes. Second, avoid all starchy and high calorie food. Lastly, some diabetic medicines need to be added to get the hba1c below 7%. Good luck!

Uterus can be removed with sugar control with insulin. Laser is new technic, nin invasive, no surgery is done, less complication, sugar need to be controlled in this procedure, you can try laser as she is only 40 yrs.

Mr. Lybrate-user, the glucose values mentioned show (after food) show that you have impaired glucose tolerance (igt), it is also called as prediabetes. No treatment with drugs is advised, however, a modified lifestyle adaptation is needed to prevent it from progressing to full fledged diabetes. This includes daily exercise of more than 1 hour a day, taking a restricted diet that gives exact calories based on ideal body weight, and extent of daily exercise. Consuming more of green leafy vegetables, salads, fruits. Avoiding sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods, and pastries. Also refrain from aerated sweetened drinks, fructose corn syrup containing products, highly processed foods, high fat milk products. Keep a periodic check of blood sugar.

My mother is having diebities since last 10 years at an average level of 200 to 280 (fasting) now our family doctor had suggest to stat give insulin (lantus soloster) now the sugar level is from 100 to 140. Now I wanted to know that does this insulin has any side effects or not. And if yes what are they. And for how long will I have to continue this insulin treatments, is there any chances that insulin will be stop in future. Currently my mother's age is 50 years and also having asthama problem and unit of insulin is given from 8unit to 18 units. (2 unit is increased as sugar level rises above 110, and accordingly decrease if sugar level comes below 110 (fasting)). Is it true that once you stat giving insulin, it will have to continue whole life, it can't be stop, as other tablets will now be less effective. My mother is taking tablets 1) glix m. 3 times a day 2) pioz 15. Once daily 3) telecast a once daily 4) faracort 400. Twice daily 5) tiova. Twice daily please help me, I am confused.

Recently I have diagnosed with hypothyroidism. My TSH level is 5.12. I am a PhD student in Electronics Engineering. I have a lot of exams to crack in near future. But I heard that with hypothyroidism the memory efficiency will decrease. So is it at all possible for a guy with hypothyroidism to score a good result in competitive exams. My dream is to be a scientist. But I have never heard of a scientist with hypothyroidism. So is it possible for a guy with hypothyroidism.

Nothing is impossible if you put your heart to it. Work hard and focus on your studies. Also, take your medicines at proper time. If you feel like, your memory power is lacking or you cannot concentrate, then Take Brahmi 3X 3 pills once in a day for 1 month.

Before starting medicines she needs weight reduction. Avoid high sugar foods and do regular exercise. Wait for 1 month, get your blood sugar done and then decide depending upon blood sugar.
