Your diabetes and thyroid seems controlled for now but the requirement keeps changing to your body needs. So keep track of your sugars atleast once a week, and tsh atleast once in 3 months to know if your current doses are optimum for you.

Mr Murali, Random 328 mg is very high blood sugar, it does confirm that you are having diabetes mellitus. (mostly T2). So you need to initiate treatment immediately with anti diabetes drugs.Before tha get a diabetic profile test done - fasting, PP sugar, HbA1c%, creatinine, uric acid and lipid profile. Simultaneously start treatment with appropriate drugs as advised by your doctor.Plus you have to also look at your diet and daily exercise.

(1. Preventive treatment for thyroid:-a healthy diet, exercise, proper nutrition, and stress reduction can all minimize the chance of developing thyroid disease. (2). Preventivet treatment for diabetes:- 30 grams of protein at breakfast may help reduce glucose spikes, among type-2 diabetic adults. Olive oil may protect against diabetes (3). Preventive treatment for hypertension:-do exercise, loose weight, reduced salt intake, stop drinking alcohol, reduced stress, take nutrients, potassium, calcium, magnesium, fish oil, garlic. (4). Preventive treatment for pancreatitis;- you cannot completely prevent pancreatitis caused by gallstones. But you may be able to reduce your risk of forming gallstones by staying at a healthy weight with a balanced diet and regular exercise. For more information, see the topic gallstones. You can reduce your chance of having pancreatitis by not drinking alcohol excessively. The amount of alcohol needed to cause pancreatitis varies from one person to another. Generally, moderate consumption is considered no more than 2 alcoholic beverages a day for men and 1 a day for women and older people. Smoking may increase your chance of having pancreatitis.

I am 35 years old I have diabetes. What should I do?
Diabetes affects all organs in the body ? Eyes, kidneys, nerves, reproductive system all are affected, In fact, from toe to hair. For diabetic control, patient and doctor should be in constant touch for regular follow up and advice. It is not as easy task to control blood sugar in the desired normal range. Whatever we eat is metabolised to sugar in the body to provide energy for our daily activities. For the absolute control, one has to monitor his / her blood sugar at regular intervals (Self-Monitoring of Blood glucose ? SMBG). Though difficult, this can be done by a glucometer and keep a record. Get an idea of Fasting sugar (FBS) and 2 hours after food (PPBS), & HbA1C (inform me) and check before dinner and after every major food. The basic idea is to reduce the food intake to 1/3 of what you take now. The dictum of sugar control is diet, exercise, diet + medicine and at later stage medicine+ Insulin will be needed. There are different diet plans of varying calories for each person depending on his activity & life style. For sugar control there is the need for regular advice and follow up. Just one time consultation or advice is not enough to guide a diabetic in scientifically & medically correct manner. For giving you regular follow up you ask me privately with all details like your daily eating pattern and medicines you take. I assure you a proper guidance... if you keep in touch.

I am suffering from type 2 since 2-3 years. Now I am taking SUGAMET MC500 daily 1 tab in the afternoon. Fasting sugar level is 110, most of time its normal in fasting, PBS is always shows more. Please guide me.

Skin Problems - Can Diabetes be the Reason Behind It?

MD - Skin,VD & Lepxsy

Ask Free Question
Skin is known as the largest organ in the human body. It covers us from top to toe. A healthy skin can slow down the aging process and prevent skin problems.

Diabetes is a metabolic disorder, chiefly caused by insulin fluctuation in the body. A study shows that, 1 out of 3 people suffering from diabetes are likely to develop a skin condition sooner or later.

Here are skin conditions that affect diabetics:

Fungal infections: People who have diabetes have an increased risk of contracting the fungal infection, especially the one known as Candida Albicans. The fungus tends to create a red, itchy rash, which is surrounded by blisters and scales. These are usually found in warm places of the body like the armpits, or between the fingers of the hand or perhaps even the toes. Common fungal infections in diabetic people include athlete's foot, jock itch and ringworm.
Skin problems related to neuropathy: Diabetes can be the cause of nerve damage in some cases; and neuropathy is a common symptom of diabetes. This type of damage can cause a loss of sensation in a part of the body. On event of an injury, one may not be able to feel it. As a result, an open sore or wound, if left unattended, can develop into an infection.
Bacterial infection: Although anyone can get a bacterial infection, people suffering from diabetes are likelier to contract them. Usual bacterial skin problems that tend to trouble diabetics are boils, lumps near the eyelids, nail infections and carbuncles. Diabetics are also prone to infections deep in the skin and of the underlying tissues. The affected area is usually warm, red and swollen.
Tingling and itching: Among the many causes of itching, diabetes is one. Yeast infection, dry skin and poor circulation are the primary causes of itching among patients of diabetes. Usually, the lower part of the leg tends to itch the most, if poor circulation is to be blamed.
Acanthosis nigricans: Acanthosis nigricans is the condition where diabetics get darkening of skin leading to skin tags around neck and armpits.

Dear lybrate-user, I understand your worries. Your requirements for medicine is a bit higher for your age and duration of diabetes. Tired or exhausted pancreas unable to secrete insulin in optimum amount along with mental stress and physical inactivity may be contributing to such high sugars. You need to become physically very active, regular with healthy food habits and if possible learn some kind of stress management techniques like aol i. E art of living or vipassana. Also follow up with diabetologist regularly with self monitoring of blood glucose (smbg). If required your doctor may advise insulin for a period. Hope this helps you!

Higher TSH - 252 (1 month back) Under going medicine TYROUP 75 mg After 1 month dose TSH - 100 Kindly suggest what is the treatment and do I have to take medicine life long.

CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology, MBBS

Mr. Lybrate-user, your tsh levels both earlier and current are exceptionally high. Therefore dosage of thyroxine 75 mcg is too low. When on treatment and on good control tsh levels should be between 3 to 4 milli units /l. So your current dose is very inadequate. With this dose hypothyroidism symptoms will not be controlled. Plus you will have to follow all instructions regarding taking the dose like early morning on empty stomach and nothing to be taken after that for 2 hours. Plus avoid soy beans, soy containing products, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, mustard, peanuts, radich and coffee. Use whole grain flour for chapati and roti, (no maida, or other refined flour). Consume more of green leafy vegetables and fruits. To decide on the correct dose I need to know weight, height and t4 levels. Treatment has to be taken for life time. There is no option. If not properly treated then it can lead to serious consequences. Thanks for the question.

How to control diabetes?
Diabetes is a systematic disease that effects almost all organs of the body. It is usually of two types type 1 is when there is no insulin in the body and the only treatment is insulin. Type 2 is usually due to resistance to the action of insulin and there are many treatment options. Besides treatment, equally important are diet and exercise. Treatment option would depend on the type of diabetes, a newly diagnosed diabetic person has to undergo tests like 1. Fasting blood sugar levels 2. Hba1c levels 3. Full blood count, 4. Liver function test, 5. Kidney function test, 6. Ecg, 7. Lipid profile, 8. Urine test, and few others to determine whether any complications are there or not and to identify any contraindications to any of the medications. Please get back with the above said results and? your age? pulse? bp and? weight for a proper treatment regimen. Your bmi is 33. Which should be between 18 and 23.

Hello, with hb being so low there is a possibility swelling in the lower limbs. Very low hemoglobin can lead to multiple problems. It is essential to raise the level to at least 12 g/100 ml. 8.7 g is still very low. It does not suggest problem with the liver, but iron deficiency anemia. You will have find out the reason why anemia of such severity has occurred. Usual reasons are inadequate food intake, very low iron content in food taken daily, or some bleeding occurring which may have gone unnoticed, like occult blood loss through stools. Sometimes bleedin peptic ulcers also lead to such a condition. There may be hook worm infestation etc. So you may have to get some investigations done to see why such low hemoglobin has occurred. Thanks.

Doctor, am suffering from thyroid for the past six years. Now am taking tablet thyronorm 75 mcg for the past more than one year and I test thyroid every six months. This Sunday I tested my thyroid at Lister Lab and the results are as below: T3-2.15,T4-0.91,TSH-7.24. TSH obviously has gone up. Kindly advice if I need to change my medication. Thanks and regards Meenu Krishna.

To keep hypothyroidism in check, TSH should be maintained between 3 to 4 mU/L. Then all the symptoms are also in control. Since TSH level is 7.24 mU/L, there is a need to increase the dosage of thyroxine to at least 87.5 mcg, then check TSH after 6 weeks, to see if desired levels are achieved, if not then dose may have to be increased to 100 mcg. Thanks.
