Check your blood sugar levels. If it is uncontrolled than also you can have bodypain. There are other reason as well. You can consult with me regarding further management.

I think you are a juvenile diabetic because of hereditary factor. Otherwise, at the age of 19 you cannot be diabetic with such high sugar levels inspite of taking insulin twice a day.

Thank you for the query. As per the symptoms you have provided, your wife is probably suffering from a condition called diabetic neuropathy. It is a condition which causes nerve damage in diabetics. High blood sugar can injure nerve fibers throughout the body, but diabetic neuropathy commonly damages nerves in the legs and feet. This leads to tingling/numbness, burning sensation and pain in the feet and hands (gloves and stockings distribution). A nerve conduction velocity test confirms the diagnosis. Usually vitamin b12 supplements help. A number of other medications like gabapentin, duloxetine, pregabali are available for this condition, but they should not be given without consulting your physician, as they may cause sleepiness. Glycomet has metformin, which itself can lead to vitamin b12 deficiency. It is important that your wife takes adequate foot care, and note for any corns/callous or minor injuries, which need to be dealt with early in diabetics. Regards.

Diabetes is not a health concern but a condition where sugar in the blood does not allow the absorption of many nutrients, as a result, many other concerns take place. If you want results then you would have to correct the diet, deal with the deficiencies, and make a healthy diet plan. You can contact separately.

lybrate-user, Hypothyroidism causes a number of symptoms of which hair fall is a very common and one that resolves very slowly. It is not because of thyroxine, it is due to lack of it. Unless you control TSH value between 3 to 4 mU/L, most symptoms will reappear or remain. Thanks.

Hi, what do you mean by" thyroid at border? give the test results. Looking at your height and weight, present weight is actually normal (height in cms - 100 = ideal body weight). If you still want to reduce weight, then do some exercise regularly like jogging, skipping and running or swimming. Plus reduce present caloric intake by about 500 calories per day. Thanks for the question.

How is your sugar control? have you checked hba1c level? joint pains may not be a direct consequence of diabetes. If sugar control is very good then better consult an orthopedic doctor. If control is bad first get the sugar in control and then try other treatment.

Advice. Avoid sitting cross legged. Avoid squatting- quadriceps exercises- lie straight, make a towel role and put it under the knee, press the keen against the role, hold it for 20 secs. Repeat 20 times twice a day. This will help relieve some pain. Core strengthening exercise- straight leg raised with toes turned outward, repeat 10 times, twice a day. Hams stretching- lie straight, take the leg up, pull the feet towards yourself, with a elastic tube or normal belt. Repeat 10 times, twice a day. Sports taping- stretch the tape from both ends and apply on the affected area contrast fomentation (hot and cold).

Mr Chandan, Thyroxine tablets do not cause such effect at all. Do you have any cough or throat infection? There may be some different reason for blood that may have been noticed.

Mr. Lybrate-user, first thing is that ground nuts taken in small quantity, do not increase blood sugar level. They provide fair amount of protein and fats. There is hardly any carb. You have not mentioned the quantity of intake, that is important. About 30 g a day is fine. Plus having a tight sugar control is also very necessary. If your diabetes is in check, meaning fasting nearer 100 mg and pp between 150 to 160 mg and hba1c%<7, then it is good.
