To guide you I would need a few more details, like your weight, height, waist circumference, amount of exercise per day and fasting and pp blood sugar levels and hba1c%. Based on these details I can guide. Presently looking at your details it appears that medication may not adequate or food intake may have to be adjusted. Tab vogs 0.3 should be taken with each food that is taken, 0.3 mg three times a day, with first bite of food. I await your info.

Can dates be consumed safely be diabetic person? And if yes what is the quantity and for how many days in each week?
Dates are good, have a lot of benefits, but a person with diabetes should use just a few like 2 to 3 a day that too with excellent glucose control. Thanks.

I recommend to control your sugar level 1) a healthy and well balanced diet having regular meals. Divide your meals into 5 to 6 times. 2) one teaspoon of methi seeds soaked overnight in 100 ml of water is very effective in controlling diabetes 3) good fats such as omega-3 and monounsaturated fats (mufa) should be consumed as they are good for the body like olive oil 4) diet should be high in fiber. Let whole grain cereals & flour, salad vegetables, green leafy vegetables & fruits.

lybrate-user, With TSH 0.006 mU/L, and T3 & T4 being normal, thyroxine dosage can be reduced to 50 mcg per day. But it is better to check TSH after 6 weeks to see if that dose has worked well or if TSH has increased abnormally. Ideally TSH should remain between 3 to 4 mU/L for good control in a non prgnant state. Thanks.

General Physician,
Female of 60 yrs. What should be the correct level of urea and fasting blood sugar.
Fasting blood sugar. Less than 100 and urea In general, around 7 to 20 mg/dL (2.5 to 7.1 mmol/L) is considered normal. But normal ranges may vary, depending on the reference range used by the lab, and your age. Ask your doctor to explain your results. Urea nitrogen levels tend to increase with age.

Hi. I have thyroid related issues and facing the issue of hair loss from last 2 year what should I do?
You have mentioned you are having thyroid-related issues but not provided any specific details. Since you are on tab. Eltroxin, I presume you are suffering from hypothyroidism. Hair loss is one of the commonest symptom of hypothyroidism. I suggest you get your t4 and tsh levels checked.

How to keep the blood sugar in normal without medicine.

Mr. Lybrate-user, if you do not have diabetes, but if family history of diabetes is there, then you need to take precautions so as to avoid developing diabetes in future. One to avoid that is by adapting modified life style- which means taking a balanced diet, avoiding sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries, other bakery items, sweetened aerated drinks (colas), avoiding highly processed food products, fructose corn syrup containing products, high fat containing milk products and red meat. Consume a good deal of green leafy vegetables and salads. Use whole grain food products than refined foods. Also refrain from alcohol and smoking. Regular exercise of at least 1 hour so as to maintain normal weight, (your bmi is 24.91 kgs/m2). If this is done then diabetes can be prevented or onset can be delayed. Thanks.

Dont worry about your child. He is perfectly all right. Just give him any normal diet of his age, nothing specific. Like mashed bananas, curd, cerelac, mashed apple, papaya. To name a few.
