People with diabetes have to take extra care to make sure that their food is balanced with insulin and oral medications (if they take them), and exercise to help manage their blood glucose levels. Healthy eating includes eating a wide variety of foods including: vegetables, whole grains,fruits, non-fat, dairy products, beans,lean meats, poultry,fish.

My wife has sugar level between 300 and 400 -fasting and post what you suggest. She is under the treatment of a specialist but it does not come down.

MBBS, DGO (cal)
General Physician,
Either your wife is not following advices given by her specialist or your specialist is not taking proper care. Treatment of diabetes needs 1) medicines - that a doctor specialist can only advice. 2) patient's participation in treatment (70% of the treatment effectivity depends on it) by the way of dietary management, exercise and weight control if overweight. 3) monitoring for the disease control and prevention of complication. If you are sure your wife is following advices in toto about diet and exercise and weight control, you change the doctor without further trial.

Hi First of all you seem to be underweight with the details mentioned. Improving your weight and controlling your diabetes helps in sexual enhancement. Exercise regularly and follow a proper diet which includes a lot of fresh vegetables, greens and fruits. Imbalance of electrolytes like your sodium, potassium, chloride can cause stiffening of your toes or cramps in legs. Uncontrolled diabetes damages the nerves. So keep your diabetes under control and you need to get a routine blood investigations to look into your blood count, electrolyte levels and hormone levels.

lybrate-user, When glucose level goes too low (hypoglycemia), then there is counter regulatory mechanism activated in the body. This leads to release of a hormone Glucagon from alpha cells in the pancreas. That hormone causes breakdown of glycogen in the liver, producing glucose, which in turn increases blood glucose. Body can not tolerate low glucose state for long time. Hence, this counter regulatory mechanism is activated. Thanks.

Hi, Blood sugar may fluctuate for many reasons like food, activity etc. Please make sure that your test was done accurately and do a test again after a week. Consult a doctor before making any conclusion, it can be a technical glitch in your report. But if your blood sugar is high don't leave it unattended. Please note that most of the people are diagnosed with diabetes when blood test is done for some other diseases. Diabetes may not show any evident symptoms for a long time but will be putting extra load on vital organs like kidneys, liver etc. It is always better to prevent diseases than curing them later.

My friend is having swelling on her face and she has gone through the thyroid profile test and she is having increase in T4. So I wanna know whether she i'm having thyroid problem or not and other question I wanna ask in which thyroid womens do not get pregnant. please let me know.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Mr. Lybrate-user, knowing only t4 level it is not possible to diagnose any thyroid condition. It is important to know tsh levels, after that t4 and t3 can be looked at. So pleas look at tsh level, which should be between 0.3 to 6 milli units /ml, above this level is considered as sub clinical hypothyroidism and above 10 milli units is considered as overt hypothyroidism, needs to be treated. If a woman has high tsh level then pregnancy is not likely to occur. It is essential to maintain tsh levels below 2 mill units even before thinking about conception.

Dear lybrate-user the stage you are in right now is little bit high. Good thing is you have started to walk, now keep doing it regularly. Secondly avoid eating out, avoid sugar, avoid oily stuff, use pure cooking oil nd never use refined or double refined oil. If you can eat methi ka dana regularly for 3 months without a break your sugar will come to normal. Just soak 1 tea spoon methi ka dana in water overnight and drink that water in morning and chew the methi ka dana.

What will be the symptoms to find out whether having thyroid or not. Requesting your valuable answer please.

PDDM, MHA, MBBS
General Physician, Nashik
The thyroid gland is a butterfly-shaped organ located in the base of your neck. It releases hormones that control metabolism—the way your body uses energy. The thyroid's hormones regulate vital body functions, including: Breathing Heart rate Central and peripheral nervous systems Body weight Muscle strength Menstrual cycles Body temperature Cholesterol levels Much more! So if you have any changes in above function, you should get your Thyroid profile done.

Dear lybrate user with the limited amount of information provided it appears that you are hypothyroid and pregnant. Your doctor has done the right thing by supplementing you medication because during pregnancy your thyroid state should be well controlled and upto 2.5 had you not been pregnant there was no need for medication. Continue with medication as advised and repeat your tsh levels every 4 weeks preferably during entire pregnancy. Hope that solves your query. Anything more then please feel free to revert.
