Hello, may I know if you are taking any medicines? are you already suffering from diabetes? if no then I can tell you that your sugar after meal is above normal level but this consider you for diabetic medicines. In my opinion you should also get screened up for blood sugar fasting and hba1c test after which I can surely advice you what to do and what not to do in this condition. Thanks for asking.

My cousin suffers from thyroid problem from past 1 year. please how to cure this one she is using tablets but no use.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Hi lybrate-user, If hypothyroidism is present, then only treatment option is taking Thyroxine tablets for lifetime. There is no cure. This is a hormone deficiency disorder. Thyroxine hormone produced by thyroid gland is needed for development and day to day functioning of brain, plus for every single vital metabolic reaction that takes place in the body. So it is needed every single day. Since in hypothyroidism there is deficiency of this hormone, it has to be supplemented daily for lifetime. There is no cure for it. Thanks.

Please get a diabetic profile, lipid profile as well as cbc. Look at hba1c%. If that is high and if lipid profile also shows abnormalities then treatment needs to be upgraded. Plus his bmi is 27.85kg/m2, which suggests he is overweight. Hence needs to control weight through exercise and restricted diet. His ideal body weight should be about 61 kgs. So diet has to be planned at this weight and also dependinhg on his daily physical activity. Present dosage of anti diabetic treatment is too less.
