Go for vaman. After vaman start ayurveda medicnes. The main benefit will be that you will be saved from diabetic side effects. But you will have to follow ayurvedic style of living.

Dear lybrate-user, Your father in law is suffering from Diabetic neuropathy which means that his nerve cells are affected by high sugar and it starts burning, tingling. The treatment is to control sugar very well, stop smoking, avoiding alcohol and taking appropriate treatment from your doctor. Good medicines are available to control these symptoms but may take 6 weeks to 4 months time Regards, Dr. sachdev.

If a normal indvidual takes insulin then blood sugar goes critically down or precipitate hypoglycemia. It could be fatal sometimes. Hypoglycemia symptoms are palpitations, tremors, sweating, confusion etc in sever case coma and death. Without diabetologist or physicians prescription it is difficult to get insulin injections. Imo he is not taking insulin.

I have fasting sugar of 84. Is is normal? what is the normal blood sugar  level in our body before and after eating?
Normal blood sugar levels are - fasting 70 to 110 mg per 100 ml of blood, after food (2 h after) <140mg per100 ml. In normal persons inspite of heavy meal or with extra sweets too blood sugardoes not go above the limit because of presence of insulin in adequate quantity.

Last month I had a thyroid test and my thyroid level is 4.6 How can we reduce the thyroid level? Does thyroid level have any impact in conceiving? I do not have family history of hypothyroidism.

Hi lybrate-user, your thyroid levels are slightly high it should be around 2.5 when trying to get pregnant. Diet won't help that much in hypothyroidism, you can try for gluten free diet. Ideally you should have thyroid medicine it will be corrected in a month don't worry it's not major issues. Don't stop talking medicine without consulting doctor.

Doctor, am suffering from thyroid for the past six years. Now am taking tablet thyronorm 75 mcg for the past more than one year and I test thyroid every six months. This Sunday I tested my thyroid at Lister Lab and the results are as below: T3-2.15,T4-0.91,TSH-7.24. TSH obviously has gone up. Kindly advice if I need to change my medication. Thanks and regards Meenu Krishna.

To keep hypothyroidism in check, TSH should be maintained between 3 to 4 mU/L. Then all the symptoms are also in control. Since TSH level is 7.24 mU/L, there is a need to increase the dosage of thyroxine to at least 87.5 mcg, then check TSH after 6 weeks, to see if desired levels are achieved, if not then dose may have to be increased to 100 mcg. Thanks.
