My 70-year-old mom admitted to hospital with hypertension and high blood sugar last week. She got discharged from hospital after three days with normal BP and blood sugar with medications for BP and Blood Sugar. But now she is feeling nauseatic, having loss of appetite and urgency for nature's call intermittently. She is on following medications post-admission: tab glyciphage 850 mg twice a day, tab envas 2.5 twice a day, tab statix 10 mg at night, tab vertin 8 mg twice a day, tab ecosprin 75 mg once a day, tab shelcal once a day, cap darolac twice a day, tab Pan40 twice a day. Is it matter of worry? Please suggest.

Honey is also sugar, only that it is different, as it contains fructose, which is rapidly converted to glucose in the body. If you want to reduce sugar intake then simply avoid sugar, jaggery and even honey. You may use sucralose if needed. Whole milk, is containing fat, which may increase weight, skimmed milk does not do that. Your bmi is already 26.33 which suggesting being overweight. So restrict intake of fat and exercise.

First his sugar level must be controlled by insulin. If not other conditions will not controlled. If infection is causing fever a suitable antibiotic can be given. Get his blood urea and creatinine checked.

Both the disorders may not cause such a complaint normally. There can be any number of different possibilities like soft tissue pain or related to rib cage. See a general physician for direct clinical examination, investigations if at all diagnosis and advice.

Hello lybrate user once diabetes diagnosed you should restrict sugar in diet. Avoid all deeply fried foods, zunk foods. Eat in moderate chapati, rice, bread, meat, eggs, fish, chiken, cheese, butter and milk products. Avoid sweets, icecreams, chocolates. Eat plenty of salads, green leafy vegetables, fruits except banana n mango. Take clear soups, butter milk, pulses, beans. Take small meals four times a day.

I am 60 years old man. I want to ask how keep control over bp and sugar without having medicines.
Mr. Lybrate-user, if one does not have high bp or hyperglycemia (diabetes), then simple change in lifestyle helps one in keeping bp and blood sugar in control. Modified lifestyle means - regular exercise preferably 1 hour a day (even though 30 minutes is said to be enough), maintaining near normal eight (bmi <23 kgs/m2), taking healthy diet with great deal of green leafy vegetables and salads, eating 2 to 3 servings of fruits a day, using whole grain food products, avoiding refined flours like maida and items made of refined flours like pasta, bread, bakery items, sweets, aerated sweetened drinks (colas), junk foods and pastries. Also refrain from alcohol and smoking. But if diabetes has actually developed similarly if high bp has already set in then drugs are needed along with above mentioned life style modification.

What is her hba1c level (average blood glucose test done 3 monthly) all diabetics should get it done every 3-4 months to keep an eye on their sugar control. Sugar 260 is whether fasting or pp or random have different meaning. You need to show your mom to a good specialist. As she has to follow strict diabetic diet from diet chart. Plus regular walk 30- 45 i'm daily. Plus correct insulin injection technique. Also if tsh is 47 then she need to be on thyroxine replacement. I don't know whether she is receiving that or not. Please see nice endocrinologist in your town for her problems.

May I answer your questions one by one. 1) ALL food stuffs, including fruits contain sugar. If by "weight gain" you mean overweight, YES... theoretically, the sugar in fruits can cause weight gain. 2) All fruits are NOT equal in terms of the quality & quantity of sugars they contain. Therefore, some fruits are OK, while some are not. 3) Bananas, taken as such (whole), in reasonable quantities will NOT cause diabetes (if that is what you mean) or hyperkalemia. But 6 bananas/ day is NOT reasonable for a person who takes other food stuffs too!!!

Dear Lybrate User, *Eating goitrogenic foods such as rapeseed, cabbage, Brussels sprouts, broccoli, cauliflower, sweet potatoes, maize, lima beans, soya and pearl millet should be limited. These foods contain natural goitrogens, which are chemicals that cause the enlargement of the thyroid gland by interfering with thyroid hormone synthesis. Cooking is known to make the goitrogens elements less effective, but it would be wise not eat these foods raw. *Smoking depresses TH levels and produces chronic underlying hypothyroidism. Research shows that nicotine increases the synthesis of T3 from T4 in the brain, while alcohol and opiates block the breakdown of T3 in the brain. *Foods that contain iodine, such as kelp, beetroot, radish, parsley, potatoes, fish, oatmeal and bananas, should be kept in the diet.
