It might be a temporary symptom, so don't worry. Get back to your doctor, (it may me due to uncontrolled diabetes, peripheral neuropthy.) be regular in taking your medications and add some physical activity so that your sugar control balances efficiently. See that you eat something before and after the activity. Increase your activity level in a graded manner according to your convenience.

I m suffering for diabetes from last 2 months please give me any advice for prevent it.
Hi - thanks for your question. For diabetic patients two things are important 1. Proper timely low calories diet 2. Activities, mild to moderate exercise to all. Some modifications can be there as per age, life styles, status of during pp, fasting of blood glucose. Over all low rice, rice products, no junk, fast, out side street foods, no spices, salt, of course no sugar. Do max walking, jogging even can do by dynamic activities. Gourd vegetables, low calorie fruits except banana, mangoes, dry fruits. No plain rice better brown rice & breads for blood circulation. Citrus fruits are better, milk double tonned, or chana, sour curd are good. No stress. Diet & exercises are all here. For medicine can contact your diabbetologst.

May be not. The present levels are because of control that has been achieved because of diet, medications etc. And may not be long lasting. Your second reading suggests you are in impaired glucose tolerance category at least now. I think you should review the status after about 2-4 weeks of diet control and exercise. Then get your 1. Fasting, and 2 hrs after food and before dinner tests done as also hba1c. Then discuss with your consultant. For introducing medications. I don't think stopping all medicines will work and periodic review and diet anti diabetic mangement will have to be continued.

My dad its RMD (gutkha) he had an diabetic (sugar) does it RMD harmful for him or not?

My dad its RMD (gutkha) he had an diabetic (sugar) does it RMD harmful for him or not?
Mr. lybrate-user, Gutka is bad for everybody, more so for a person with diabetes. Even in normal person it is associated with conditions like fibroscitis, where cheek muscles harden and opening the mouth becomes difficult. Plus there are a large number of oral and tongue cancers reported in people consuming gutka. In a diabetic person generally immune system is a bit vulnerable, so gutka can cause serious damage. Thanks.

Krishnaji, Hypothyoidism ka treatment life time bhar lena hota hai. Motapa kam karane keliye pahale TSH levels ko normal rakhana chahiye. Usake baad, har rose varjish karani chahiye, kam se kam ek ghanta. Aur khane pe bhi dhyan dena hoga. Kisi acche doctor ko bhi dikha lijiye.

Dear lybrate user, cholesterol is naturally produced inside the body of every living animal. Human beings are no exception to that. But when we take mutton, chicken, yellow part of a boiled egg, ghee, butter etc we intake cholesterol from external source. This extra cholesterol from external sources increase the total cholesterol content of human body. In order to keep the cholesterol level under control your husband should avoid the aforesaid foods.

Dear , a proper measure for knowing and managing your diabetes will be to ensure a hba1c below 6.5%. Regarding diet, we indians have high carbohydrate diet. You have to closely observe your plate and you can come up with a better diet plan for yourself or your mother. To simplify it, identify the items which are carb rich in your plate and try to compensate the same with protein and fibres, for eg cut down a roti and increase sabji, dal or salad. To have a better control you can do a monthly self glucose monitoring 3 times a day and keep a track of the food with it. Check fasting sugar, sugar one hour prior to lunch and 2 hrs post lunch, and note down the details of her breakfast and lunch items. Modify as per my earlier suggestions and within a week you will see your blood sugar level responding. Best of luck.
