Usually if one is taking good food (balanced diet), there is hardly any need for supplements. But if you are feeling good with those may continue with. All these three vitamins are fat soluble and get stored in the body, hence taking excess is not advisable. Where as bcomplex group and vitamin c are water soluble supplementing them regularly is unlikely to cause any difficulty. So you might take vit a, d & e for a few days and stop and then take again if required.

My mother (57+ yrs) is under treatment for Hypothyroid (Eltroxin 50 mcg), Hypertension (Olmezest 20 mg) & Osteoarthritis of knee joints (stage-2). Around 7-8 months back, she was diagnosed with mild anemia (Hb 10.6), which got corrected (Hb 12.4) after 2-3 months usage of 'Orofer XT' Around a week back, all of a sudden, she seems to feel lot of gas & indigestion & had to pass motion 15-16 times, out of which last 3-4 times are loose, while rest are normal. She also had stomach pain (around naval chord), which gets relieved after passing motion. This motion got stopped after taking couple of 'Lopamide' tablets in the evening. She was also seen by a medicine doctor on the same day, who had prescribed the following medicines - 1) Citran CT - twice daily for 5-days 2) Vigilac - twice daily for 10-days 3) PAN-D - empty stomach for 5-days. The antibiotic was stopped couple of days back, but she seems to have stomach pain & loose motion (3-times) yesterday evening. Also, she feels gas is not reduced much & she does not have appetite along with weakness. When we talked to the doctor over phone, he advised to continue PAN-D for 2 more weeks & nothing else. Are we on the right track of treatment ?

Janumet contains sitagliptin and metformin. This tablets basically helps to control post meal high sugars. I think you just need to take it regularly. You can continue triglynase 2 as before.

If you are in your initial stages, try diet-exercise routine to gain better control of your blood sugars with minimum possible medicines. Also, try losing atleast 10-12 kg of your weight. It will do wonders & there are chances that your medicines might stop for now. I would advise you and your family members to go for genetic tests as you have got the disease at such an early age.
