My blood sugar level is 140 early in the morning . Is it ok It keeps on changing. Why.

My blood sugar level is 140 early in the morning . Is it ok
It keeps on changing. Why.
Mr. Lybrate-user, fasting or pp blood glucose levels depend on the intake of food and ability of insulin to help glucose utilisation by cells. So levels will vary depending on our daily food intake. If one eats more, level will go up. 140 mg is high, ideally it should be around 100 mg. Levels may also change if treatment is not adequate. Thanks.

I am hypothyroid patient, I am taking thyroxine 200 now. Is there any side effect to take this medicine to me?

I am  hypothyroid patient, I am taking thyroxine 200 now. Is there any side effect to take this medicine to me?
Mr. Lybrate-user, if you feeling fine with that dose and if tsh levels are within normal (desired) limit, then there is absolutely no problem. Thyroxine is actually similar to the natural hormone produced by thyroid gland. So most often it is very well tolerated. Some times side effects may be seen, early in treatment. But majority of patients do not experience any problems. Thanks.

Hi, I am 28/M years old. Suffering from Insulin resistance. please suggest best solution.

Hi,
I am 28/M years old. Suffering from Insulin resistance. please suggest best solution.
Weight reduction, controlled diet, regular exercise, avoiding high fatty foods, junk foods, pastries and other bakery items. Sweetened aerated drinks, fructose corn syrup containing products, highly processed products, alcohol and smoking, are few of the things which reduce insulin resistance. Looking at your weight and height, bmi is 25 kgs/m2, which is not very high. But if there is central obesity, then that contributes to insulin resistance. Reducing glucose level and bringing down body fat improves insulin action. Your waist should be <85 cms. You should exercise at least for 1 hour a day or a bit more.

It's all about calories. No specific food or drink will treat the diabetes. Beta cells of pancreas which secret insulin became damaged in diabetes. So we hv to control blood sugar to match levels of insulin secreted by our body. Take a diet chart first. Your sugar levels are high. Get a kidney function test done. Then medicines can be started. Decrease body weight do daily exercises around 45 minutes. Wish you a healthy life.

What causes Hashimoto's thyroiditis, and what is the best method of treatment? Can iodine help this condition?

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Hashimoto's thyroiditis (ht), is an autoimmune disease, causing lymphocytic infiltration of thyroid gland plus there are anti bodies produced by our own immune cells against thyroid peroxidase (anti tpo abs). These antibodies destroy thyroxine secreting cells in the gland, leading to hypothyroidism. The causes are not clear, genetic predisposition, viral infections and even taking excess iodinated salt have been thought to be the reasons. In usa this is the main cause of hypothyroidism, more common in women, the patient with ht usually have other members of the family having some or the other autoimmune disease or himself or herself may have another autoimmune disorder like rheumatoid arthritis or t1 diabetes. Treatment is to give thyroxine replacement for life time. Iodine has no role in the treatment.

Can people type 2 diabetic drink alcohol and smoking cigarettes? What is side effect? Liver function? Heart function? And lung?

CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology, MBBS
Endocrinologist,
Can people type 2 diabetic drink alcohol and smoking cigarettes? What is side effect? Liver function? Heart function?...
Mr. lybrate-user, A person with diabetes is advised to avoid smoking and alcohol. The reason is smoking tobacco, affects blood vessels, lungs as in any other person. But a person with diabetes has much weaker immune system, is prone to lung infections and cardiac problems. As regards alcohol, it gives empty calories, person fails to recognise hypoglycemic situation. Plus it affects nutrition, affects liver enzymes & can cause severe liver damage. Thanks.

Will eating dates on regular basis not increase blood sugar level in diabetic patients?

Endocrinologist,
Will eating dates on regular basis not increase blood sugar level in diabetic patients?
lybrate-user, Yes eating dates repeatedly in substantial number will definitely increase blood glucose level. So one can consume just 2 or 3 dates a day, that too when blood glucose is well in check. Thanks.

to reduce creatinine and urea, you will have to consume more of vegetarian diet. Avoid high protein foods like mutton and chicken and fishes. Also avoid strenuous physical activity. Consume green tea, reduce intake of high fat cheese and other milk products. These measures may be helpful in reducing creatinine and to extent urea. For hypertension it is better to use ace inhibitors or arbs, which have a beneficial effect on kidneys.

Tsh value of 6.3 m units/ml is high, signifies that the person has hypothyroidism. This means immediate treatment should be initiated with thyroxine tablets. Dosage has to be based on patients weight and tsh level. Regular dosing as would be advised by the doctor and regular exercising for more than 1 h and avoiding soya beans, soya containing products, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, mustard and coffee, and consuming more fruits and green vegetables, using whole grain flour for making rotis and consuming onions, garlic these are other precautions to be taken.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Mr. Lybrate-user, there are many people with high uric acid, but only a few develop joint related problems. Not that every person with high uric acid has gouty arthritis. So you need not worry. You can still avoid foods which have high purines like: certain fishes, sardines, trout, herring, shell fish, salmon, scallop, mushrooms, mussels. Plus organ meats, red meat in general, alcohol, high sugarated drinks, colas, fructose corn syrup containing products. Can consume milk products, green leafy vegetables, salads, whole grain products, legumes etc.

Mr. lybrate-user, Please understand for diabetes only treatment option available is in modern medicine, either oral anti-diabetes tablets and/or Insulin injections. So please shift back to appropriate drugs as earlier. However, it is essential to look at what dosage of the tablets or Insulin has to be given. Plus please check HbA1c% and come back in a private conversation, where I will be able to guide specifically. As in this communication I am supposed to give only general guidelines. Thanks.
