it is better if you avoid eating banana and prefer other fruits with low glycemic index like apple oranges pears peaches cherries and berries etc. for good blood sugar control you need to limit portion size of meal in each serving. occasional eating of single banana wont raise your sugars much if you are on regular exercise and timely medication.

pain could be due to soar throat, pharyngitis etc. if you feel its thyroid enlargement you can do ultrasonography of neck to rule out thyroid swelling. small thyroid nodules are difficult to palpate with fingers and for that USG is best option. you can send me your neck picture in private message if you are confused about swelling

Glyciphage (metformin) is known to cause gastric problems in diabetics. this could be managed by altering either dosage or medication. for this you need to consult your diabetologist. Minor gastric disturbances can be managed by altering food habbits like eating more fruits and vegetables with fiber content. drinking good amount of water. yoghurt for good intestinal bacterial flora etc. regular exercise will also help in good digestion

You need to increase thyroxine dose. Normally increament is done with 12.5 to 25 mcg dose. TSH takes around 6-8 weeks to reflect change after thyroxine dose increament. It is advisable to consult your diabetologist or endocrinologist before dose increament.

you need to take thyroxine suppliment for hypothyroid treatment. it is advisable to keep TSH level below 2.5 before and throughout pregnancy for proper brain development of baby. High TSH during pregnancy can lead to brain development defects, low iq babies, MR etc
