You can take a basugine (glargine) substitute for lantus it comes in vial form and much cheaper. Ask your diabetologist to shift you from rapid acting lispro (humalog) to regular insulin (actrapid) which is cheaper but you need to take it 30 mins before each meal as action is little slower.

Swethaji, Hypothyroidism is to be treated for life time. There is no question of stopping the treatment It has to be continued for life time.Plus you have to avoid soy beans, soy containing products, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, radish, peanuts, mustard and coffee. Consume more of green leafy vegetables and salads, fruits. Use whole grain flour for making chapati and roti. Exercise regularly to avoid weight increase.

Hi Your diabetes is fairly controlled. With diet and exercise you can reduce it further without any change in your medicine dose. For your age I would recommend to target a HbA1C of 7 and less than that to prevent any complications in future.

How to avoid getting diabetics?
T2 diabetes is a preventable disease, if one maintains normal weight, does regular exercise for more than 1 h daily, avoids deep fried foods, direct sugar and sweets. This life style should be followed meticulously.

I hope your sugar levels are controlled. The treatment of diabetes is not that simple. There are many classes of diabetic drugs. It depends on extent of diabetes and complications to decide medicine for the diabetic person. Dosages are also decided upon depending on your acute and chronic sugar levels, fasting sugar levels, post prandial sugar levels, urine sugar levels, urine microalbumin levels, urea and creatinine levels. So, a complete diabetic profile needs to be done to reach for the best drugs and proper dosages. Here is the list of tests, please get them done and follow up with me. I will do the best and give you a proper treatment. 1. Hba1c. 2. Sugar - fasting and pp. 3. Urine - routine and microscopy. 4. Urine microalbumin. 5. Urea and creatinine. 6. Lipid profile. Follow up with the reports. I will set up a wonderful treatment plan to control your sugar levels. Additionally I will also make a customised dietary plan for you to take care of your sugar levels naturally.

Mr Pinakesh, If TSH level is 10 milli units / ml, it is high, signifying she has hypothyroidism and needs to start treatment immediately. Otherwise, symptoms of hypothyroidism can be quite severe and troublesome. Hypothyroidism leads to weight gain, so that has to be controlled, then initiation of treatment is very essential.

Do I need to take insulin for the rest of my life as for the last 1 month my sugar level is under control.

Do I need to take insulin for the rest of my life as for the last 1 month my sugar level is under control.
No. It is a common misconception that once you start insulin, you have to take it for the rest of your life. If you are a type 2 diabetic whose blood sugars are well controlled & you don't have any complications (eg: kidney disease), insulin can be stopped & oral medication may be started.

I am 55 years. Go urination every hour at night. No diabetes, or prostate problem.
Usually nocturnal frequency of urine is due to enlargement of prostate. You get sonography for the same. And also give urine for complete evaluation.
