Report of pp urine may not be correct. Get it rechecked. If your pp blood sugar is 128 do not worry about urine sugar. You are not a diabetic.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. When diabetes is well controlled then fasting remains < 100 mg, PP 150 to 160 mg & HbA1c% <6.8. Considering those levels, your glucose levels are not in good control. Since there is no mention the medication being taken to control glucose, it is difficult to say anything. For a person with diabetes it is essential to take appropriate drugs as prescribed, then ttake balanced and restricted diet that meets the exact caloric needs based on ideal body weight (78 kgs), extent of daily exercise and blood glucose levels. As regards the food, sugar and sweets should be avoided, also avoid deep fried foods, junk foods, bakery items. Pastries and foods made from maida. Avoid colas, alcohol and smoking. As regards the ayurvedic drugs, there is really no benefit, even though a lot of unsubstantiated claims are made. Thanks.

You should better consult any dietitian in your area for diet planning, according to his age, body structure and diseases. For diabetics, small and frequent meals are essential.

It's type 2 diabetes. Please tell him to change his lifestyle so that there is minimum need for medications. With a commited mind let him follow a disciplined routine. Read more about healthy lifestyle and adapt accordingly. Ensure that he does not fast for long periods of time as its not good for his health. Avoid junk food and bad habits. Yoga and pranayam can enhance his health and bring back the vitality. Let him follow up regularly with the doctor and do some tests. You can update the reports here for further clarification. If he has any complaints then he can also add Homeopathy which is safe and can be taken with regular medicines. You can contact me if needed.

I am 40 years old. I am suffering from type 2 diabetes mellitus from last 6 years. My fbs is 200.

Endocrinologist, Delhi
I am 40 years old. I am suffering from type 2 diabetes mellitus from last 6 years. My fbs is 200.
Fbs 200 mg/dl is just too high! its very improtant for you to immediately get this under control. It may lead to very critical near term and long term complications. You may feel nothing at this moment but frankly speaking your body organs especially your kidneys, eyes and nerves are undergoing daily damage which will become permanent disability very soon.

Hi, I would advise you to take your grandpa to a dermatologist. It is difficult to advise you online as the doctor should see skin problems first before diagnosing. The crack in your grandpa's foot can be anything - from a simple rash/abrasion to more deeper infection. As he is also a diabetic patient, I do not want that wound/rash to worsen, so please see a good dermatologist/skin specialist. In diabetes patients, simple wounds can turn nasty soon, and also healing of wounds is delayed especially if diabetes is not under control.

My father is suffering from diabetes. What is the common diet for diabetes patient to maintain healthy life style.

My father is suffering from diabetes. What is the common diet for diabetes patient to maintain healthy life style.
Mr. Lybrate-user, a person with diabetes has to take a balanced diet. That should contain complex carbohydrates like whole grain flour made item, proteins from various sources like dairy products, eggs, poultry, fishes and lean meat, (for a vegetarian main sources are milk products, pulses and eggs if allowed) and fats particularly unsaturated and mono unsaturated ones. Avoid trans fats or saturated fats particularly seen in deep fried foods. It is better to use 2 or 3 different types of oils. Specific diet plan has to be based on individual patients weight, height, extent of exercise and blood sugar levels.

This medication is a thiazolidinedione antidiabetic, prescribed for type 2 diabetes in certain patients. It is used along with diet and exercise. It may be used alone or with other antidiabetic medicines. It lowers blood sugar by reducing insulin resistance. Diabetes, often referred to by doctors as diabetes mellitus, describes a group of metabolic diseases in which the person has high blood glucose (blood sugar), either because insulin production is inadequate, or because the body's cells do not respond properly to insulin, or both. It is a difficult 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 diabetes, hypertension (high BP) and many long-term illness 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 with all details like your daily eating pattern and medicines you take. I assure you a proper guidance. If you keep in touch personally.

I got my thyroid results. It is hyperthyroidism. Doctor suggests to go for radioactive iodine. What to do? Are there any alternative treatments?

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Lybrate-user, hyperthyroidism is treated in the following manner: 1) using anti thyroid drugs like methimazole, carbimazole or propylthiouracil. One of these drugs is given for a period of 18 to 24 months. This causes suppression of thyroid gland. Occasionally after 18 to 24 months normal function returns. Treatment is discontinued. However, in many cases suppression does not occur. Then other options are considered. 2) radio active iodine: this is given in a small dose, absorbed by thyroid gland. It destroys the secreting cells. Thyroid function is lost, hypothyroidism develops. Patient has to then take thyroxine hormone for life time. 3) surgical removal of the gland: this is another option employed in some patients. After surgery patient develops hypothyroidism and has to be treated by thyroxine for lifetime. Thanks.
