A normal person has blood sugar in the range of : fasting levels less than 100 and 2 hr post food sugar less than 140. fasting levels above 125 and post food levels 200 and above is considered diabetic. any level in between is seen in a person at risk of developing diabetes in the near future (prediabetes). 160 in fasting is diabetic , whereas 160 seen 2hrs after food is prediabetes. the closer the sugar level is to the normal levels, the better is the control.

Mr. Lybrate-user, if you want to know whether diabetes is there or not, better to check fasting as well as after food sugar levels. If fasting is between 101 to 125 mg, it is impaired fastin glucose, if level is between 141 to 199 mg/ 100 ml it is impaired glucose tolerance (igt). It is also called prediabetic condition. Fasting above 126 mg and pp above 200 mg then diabetes is confirmed. If you exercise regularly for more than 1 hour a day, take a balanced and restricted diet that gives exact calories based on ideal body weight (height in cms - 100 = kgs) your ibw should be 75 kgs. Avoid sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods and pastries. Consume more of green leafy vegetables and salads and fruits. Plus refrain from alcohol and smoking. The modified life style will help you to prevent diabetes.

Dear sir /madam I am 52 years old male. Having type 2 diabetes since 2 years and wanted to control it without using medicines.

Please suggest what to do if I want to reduce the dose.Also suggest me what type of food that I need to consume.Anxiously waiting for your reply. Tell me how to control.

For a diabetic it is best advised to have a diet planned as per the sugar levels, lifestyle and history. Though you can follow some guidelines - have small frequent meals. Do not fast for more than 2-3 hours. Avoid a very heavy meal at one time. Avoid fruit juices, aerated drinks or sugarcane juice, honey, jaggery or sugar. Avoid junk foods. Exercise and stay active. Do not attempt to try out too many remedies as you could go into hypoglycaemia. Sleep well. It's all a matter of discipline.

Hi , an under-functioning thyroid is a hormonal disruption that could be fixed via good eating habits and an active lifestyle. At our company, we do have several clients come in with a thyroid disorder which we successfully rectify with 3-6 months of lifestyle intervention and behavioral modification. This would be a great platform to put your wife on as well. Do consult us for a preliminary consult and we could discuss this in more depth. .

Only become dependent on medicines may not help you, you have to follow your doctor advice for diet and exercise. If your sugar are not under control, than it means you may require your insulin dosage to be set again or may require any additional medications.

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.

What are your fasting, pp sugar levels and hba1c%? if diabetes is in check then such problems normally do not develop. Plus you are obese with a bmi of 35.92kg/m2 (normal <23kg/m2). Unless you work on weight reduction it is difficult to control sugar and consequent problems. On the penis the marks are due to (possibly) fungal infection, take tab gocan 150 once a week for 8 weeks and also apply candid b cream locally twice a day. One way to take care of your excess weight is to consider bariatric surgery. Which will also control diabetes too.

with tsh level of 0.26 milli units/ml, you can definitely plan for pregnancy, because recommended tsh levels during 1st trimester is 0.1 to 2 milli units, 2nd trimester 0.3 to3 milli units and 3rd trimester is 0.3 to 3.5 milli units/ml. Maintaining tsh levels in this range ensures proper conception, development of fetus and successful outcome of pregnancy. If you have questions please do come back. Best of luck.

Take diet for hypothyroidism:- high-carbohydrate foods such as potatoes, rice, pasta and bread, avoid oily foods,junk foods, go for walk. Nutrient-rich foods that improve your health may also benefit your thyroid gland, antioxidant-rich fruits and vegetables more plenty of water: Blueberries, tomatoes, bell peppers, and other foods rich in antioxidants can improve overall health and benefit the thyroid gland. Eating foods high in B vitamins, like whole grains, may also help. flax oil, Selenium: Tiny amounts of selenium are needed for enzymes that make thyroid hormones to work properly. Eating selenium-rich foods, such as sunflower seeds or Brazil nuts, can be beneficial. Tyrosine: This amino acid is used by the thyroid gland to produce T3 and T4. Taking a supplement may help, Avoid bad habits . Avoid stress. Some Relax during work. Go for walk, Take plenty of water, avoid more protein diet,milk products.

Hi Diabetes cannot be detected with just one blood sugar reading. This value of 186 will be considered as random blood sugar value AND is not normal. Get your HbA1C test done and this will confirm if you are a Diabetic.

Mr. lybrate-user, Yes it is possible to know if one has diabetes or not with random blood glucose test. If it shows glucose level 200 mg and more, then diabetes is confirmed. If level below 140 mg then it is considered negative or normal. Thanks.

Thyroid Nodules: Tests And Diagnosis

MD. CH
Homeopath, Agartala
Thyroid Nodules: Tests And Diagnosis

In assessing a lump or nodule in your neck, one of your doctor's main goals is to rule out the possibility of cancer. But your doctor will also want to know if your thyroid is functioning properly. Tests include: 
 • Physical exam. You'll likely be asked to swallow while your doctor examines your thyroid because a nodule in the thyroid gland will usually move up and down during swallowing, whereas a nodule that forms in other parts of your neck won't.
 • Thyroid function tests. Tests that measure blood levels of thyroxine and triiodothyronine, hormones produced by your thyroid gland, and thyroid-stimulating hormone (tsh), which is released by your pituitary gland, can indicate whether your thyroid is producing too much thyroxine (hyperthyroidism) or too little (hypothyroidism).
 • Ultrasonography. This imaging technique uses high-frequency sound waves rather than radiation to produce images. It provides the best information about the shape and structure of nodules and may be used to distinguish cysts from solid nodules, to determine if multiple nodules are present and as a guide in performing a fine-needle aspiration biopsy.
 • Fine-needle aspiration (fna) biopsy. Nodules are often biopsied to make sure no cancer is present. Fna biopsy helps to distinguish between benign and malignant thyroid nodules. During the procedure, your doctor inserts a very thin needle in the nodule and removes a sample of cells. The procedure, which is carried out in your doctor's office, takes about 20 minutes and has few risks. Your doctor is likely to take several samples from a single nodule. If you have more than one nodule, your doctor will usually take samples from these as well. Often, your doctor will use ultrasound to help guide the placement of the needle. The samples are then sent to a laboratory and analyzed under a microscope.
 

Thyroid scan: In some cases, your doctor may recommend a thyroid scan to help evaluate thyroid nodules. During this test, an isotope of radioactive iodine is injected into a vein in your arm. You then lie on a table while a special camera produces an image of your thyroid on a computer screen.

Nodules that produce excess thyroid hormone — called hot nodules — show up on the scan because they take up more of the isotope than normal thyroid tissue does. Cold nodules are nonfunctioning and appear as defects or holes in the scan. Hot nodules are almost always noncancerous, but a few cold nodules are cancerous. The disadvantage of a thyroid scan is that it can't distinguish between benign and malignant cold nodules. 

The length of a thyroid scan varies, depending on how long it takes the isotope to reach your thyroid gland. You may have some neck discomfort because your neck is stretched back during the scan, and you'll be exposed to a small amount of radiation.
