No sir, dry fruits increases the blood sugar level. So eat after some days if you desire so otherwise avoid them to maintain yr sugar levels.

lybrate-user, A strict diet can be beneficial only when blood glucose is fairly well in control with appropriate drugs. From the information it is clear that current treatment is not at all helpful to you. Ideally when in control fasting glucose should be closer to 100 mg, PP 150 to 160 mg & HbA1c%<6.8. If these levels are not achieved and maintained, then one is inviting serious long term complications related to multiple organs in the body. There needs to be a total relook at the present treatment. Thanks.

I don't know about Algina but the others are for your Diabetes & calcium & Vitamin D. You can take extra care in your diet to control your blood sugar. You can try taking 1 tsp. Castor oil at bedtime with a glass of water. It can help you for your knee pain.

If using standard glucometer and one follows the proper procedure advised like storage, expiry, pricking technique, periodical test for control (standardisation) expiry norm self monitoring glucometer is accurate and reliable. By personal experience I found much better than old laboratory colorimetry method. Some books may differ.

You will have to continue the medication (eltroxin) as advised, and get serum tsh checked after 6 weeks of regular medicine intake. If the reports are normal, you will have to continue medications. Once your tsh levels are stable, you can decrease the frequency of checking tsh and can get it checked once a year or if you experience thyroid related symptoms. If your weight does not decrease after stabilisation of tsh levels, you will need to be evaluated for other causes of obesity. You should exercise regularly and may have to follow a diet chart as advised by a dietician.

Nidhiji, What is the TSH level? If the level is above 10 milli units/ml, then it is confirmed hypothyroidism, if level is between 5 to 10 milli units/ml then it is subclinical condition. Plus do you experience any symptoms related to it? Please answer these queries. If confirmed hypothyroidism is there then treatment with thyroxine has to be started. Dosage will depend upon your body weight and TSH levels.

I am taking obimet 500 before and after lunch I am 45 of age, I am doing I hour exercise including fast walk and gym, I am eating sugarless food, like vegetables, fish, chapati and small amt. Of rice I taking this food in 4 parts beside that I am unable to control my sugar level but fact is that I have lot of tension from my home side, please suggest me how I control my sugar level?

MBBS, DGO (cal)
General Physician,
To control Blood Sugar four factors are most important. They are: 1) Exercise, 2) Diet, 3) Medicine, 4) Stress Management. I am not convinced about your taking Obimet 500 before and after lunch. Rather Obimet SR 1 G can be taken after BF only. If that is not controlling sugar you may need to add other medicine. Of course it is not clear what exactly you meant by' not controlled BS? There is no food as such which is sugar/CHO-less. Hope you need to talk to your consultant about your diet. Exercise is very much important but don' t over do or make a chaos of exercises in your life. Brisk walking for 5 KM daily shall be enough for you + some fat burning free hand exercises. You ar not that overweight. Your weight is very much near normal. Keep it below this. Stress management is done by meditation.

Which is the best medicine for Diabetes. And tell me the name of strong pain killer tablet.
These medications help lower blood glucose by assisting the body with breaking down starchy foods and table sugar. For the best results, they’re taken before meals. Options include: Acarbose (Precose) Miglitol (Glyset) Biguanides & Morphine is the strongest.

Hi Quite a few explanations for your condition. Thank God doesn't sound serious. As you get relief with kayamat tablets n it is good you do not take them regularly. If I was you .I wld start myself on even a lighter laxative .to start off with isabgol n it's various formulations. To figure ouut which one works best for me n in what amounts as excess has its own problems n less n irregular use does not give desired relief. Hope this helps Rgds.

Bed rest, plenty of oral fluids and paracetamol tablets 500 mg 3 times a day for 2-3 days may be tried. However it is very important to keep blood sugar levels in normal range. For which frequent blood tests and monitoring of medications is must. Diabetes medicines should not be discontinued. If fever persists see your doctor for clinical examination, related tests, diagnosis and treatment.
