Hello, pp 196 mg, is slightly high, better to be around 150 to 160 mg /100 ml. To control blood sugar regular treatment with prescribed drugs is necessary. Plus diet control and regular exercise are also equally important. Specific diet will depend on blood sugar level, extent of exercise done daily, present dietary pattern and weight of the patient. You should avoid sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods and pastries. Also avoid sweetened aerated drinks, high fat milk products and highly processed foods.

The thyroid readings are normal, there is no need for any medication. Her thyroid function is normal. About blood sugar after food sugar level is normal, but fasting is high, (fasting glucose intolerance), which is also labeled as prediabetes. No medicine required. But there is a need to exercise regularly for about an hour a day, take a diet that gives exact calories based on ideal body weight (51 kgs). Consume good deal of green leafy vegetables and fruits. Avoid too much of sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries, sweetened aerated drinks and high fat milk products. That should help in keeping diabetes away for a few years.

The very fact that you have diabetes means that insulin resistance has been present for a long time even prior to the diagnosis of diabetes in you. I personally feel that a few oral medicines can be tried out in you rather than taking huge doses of insulin. Also, do ensure that your insulin administration technique is correct. A lot depends on that. And lastly as you have mentioned of an exercise bereft lifestyle, even a small effort in starting exercise will go a long way in overcoming the insulin resistance. Wish you good health.

Hypothyroidism in India is due to iodine deficiency most of the times, autoimmunity in India is less common as compared to western countries.
Few dietary restrictions which a thyroid patient should follow
1 cabbage
2 chhole, rajma, brinjal
3 mooli, curd, achaar
Avoidance of these things will give less irritation to thyroid gland

My mother is having diebities since last 10 years at an average level of 200 to 280 (fasting) now our family doctor had suggest to stat give insulin (lantus soloster) now the sugar level is from 100 to 140. Now I wanted to know that does this insulin has any side effects or not. And if yes what are they. And for how long will I have to continue this insulin treatments, is there any chances that insulin will be stop in future. Currently my mother's age is 50 years and also having asthama problem and unit of insulin is given from 8unit to 18 units. (2 unit is increased as sugar level rises above 110, and accordingly decrease if sugar level comes below 110 (fasting)). Is it true that once you stat giving insulin, it will have to continue whole life, it can't be stop, as other tablets will now be less effective. My mother is taking tablets 1) glix m. 3 times a day 2) pioz 15. Once daily 3) telecast a once daily 4) faracort 400. Twice daily 5) tiova. Twice daily please help me, I am confused.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Mr. Lybrate-user, by saying" she is suffering from thyroid" are referring to hypothyroidism? because thyroid is a normal gland present is all of us, which produces hormone thyroxine. So please clarify that. If she has hypothyroidism, then she has to avoid soy beans, soy containing products, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, radish, peanuts, mustard and coffee. She should use whole grain flour for roti and chapati, avoid maida and products made of that. Should consume more of green leafy vegetables, salads and fruits. Should exercise daily for 1 hour and take a restricted diet. Thanks.
