Mr. Lybrate-user, your glucose level is really good, it should remain at that level so that no complications develop related to diabetes. As regards taking honey with lemon juice, if the quantity small then no real difficulty at all. But large quantity is not advisable.

Mr. Lybrate-user, diabetes is a non-communicable disease, it does not spread by eating used food or water (jhootha khana ya pani lenese). This ia condition due to deficiency of insulin or resistance to its action or both. If your uncle has it, it is possible that it may spread to his children. Plus your uncle being a close relative of yours, you or your brother may get it because of spread in the family due to heredity.

Hi there, I need some opinion or advice. I am 37 years old, I had hypertension since I was 19 years old and I had diabetes in 2010 when my reading was 21mmol. I was admitted to the specialist medical centre february this year due 3 continuous weeks coughing and been diagnosed as bronchitis, but now I am healthy with that sickness. During my admission, they found I have slightly high reading regards to my diabetes which is 15. So they changed my medication to kombiglyze XR 2.5mg/1000 and diamicron 60mg and I am taking this medicine till present and never skip of taking my medicine daily routine but recently I feel extremely thirst all the time and felt that my mouth is dry so I keep drinking water every minutes of my time and urine frequently. Why is this still persist if even we still taking our medicine on time? Is it a side effects of the medicine to my body or diabetic still will go worst even we taking our medicine and control eat less food?

Diabetes is much more complicated than you can imagine. You are doing your bit by taking the medicines regularly and that must be much appreciated by your doctors but please remember that it's a ongoing disease process and you will have ups and downs. First you should be aware completely of your sugar and blood pressure levels and just get them controlled them by adjustment of medicines by doctors. Second remember that medicine is just a part of the solution. Your diet and exercise are equally important solutions and can become a part of the problem if you don't watch them. You are young and exercise is your best ally at this juncture. Make use of exercise to do the fine tuning of your diabetes. Third all medicines have side effects but these side effects are better than the effect of disease on the body. I hear so many people crib about side effects of medicines but no one care about the effects of the disease process. Medicines are medicines because they cause less harm than benefit and surely prevent you from getting that bad effect of the disease on the body. Diabetes is going to be with you for life. Treat it as a unwanted guest on your journey. Keep watching it and never let it take the steering wheel. Regards.

I am suffering from hypothyroidism. I am taking thyronorm 12.5 what diets I should avoid and what to prefer.
lybrate-user, If you have hypothyroidism and on treatment TSH should be between 3 to 4 mU/L, to be free from all the symptoms. As regards the diet following things should be avoided: Soy beans, soy containing products, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, radish, peanuts, mustard and coffee. Should consume good deal of green leafy vegetables, salads and fruits. Should always use whole grain flour for chapati and roti. Avoid refined flour like maida and food products made out of it. Total diet should be restricted to match the need based on ideal body weight (52 kgs) and extent of daily exercise. Thanks.

Mr. lybrate-user, Your query is very general, so it is difficult to give any answer. It will be good if you give following details: 1) Her thyroid test details like T3, T4 & TSH levels. Plus if anti - TPO antibodies test has been done. 2) What are the tests suggested, Plus what are symptoms she is complaining of. Looking at those details I will be able to guide. Thanks.
