lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Post surgery it is very essential to control glucose levels strictly for quick healing as well as for prevention of long term complications. Usually after many years of treatment with oral drugs, many patients have to be shifted on to insulin for better control. If with current dosage glucose control is not as expected, then we will have to increase the dose of Insulin, both in the morning and at night. Ideally FBG <100 mg PP 160 to 180 mg. So to achieve those levels, there has to be a change in insulin dose. Plus we will have to also look at other antidiabetics that he may be taking. Thanks.

Mr. lybrate-user, If your blood glucose is in control, with fasting closer to 100 mg, PP 150 to 160 mg & HbA1c%<6.8, then you can take protein supplement free of carbohydrate so as to help build muscles. Regular exercise of over 1 hour is a must. Thanks.

I am 41 years old house wife, and post hysterectomy 13 years back, now having hypothyroidism, current test shows TSH is 17.48 uIU/ml. T4 5.8, T3 107 ng/DL. Now I have tiredness, hair loss, body ache. My doctor given 50 mg thyronorm tab 1 for every day. Can you suggest food habits and other controls for speedy recover, and future of my life.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
When on treatment for hypothyroidism, to get all symptoms in control, TSH should be maintained between 3 to 4 mU/L. So TSH 17.48 is too high, showing uncontrolled hypothyroidism. Hence all the symptoms like tiredness, fatigue and hair loss will continue. It appears the dosage of thyroxine is low. Needs to be increased to at least by another 25 mg or more. After taking that dose for 6 weeks check TSH levels again to see if desired decrease has occurred or not. As regards food please avoid soy beans, soy containing products, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, radish, mustard, peanuts and coffee. Consume more of green leafy vegetables, salads, fruits and use whole grain flour, avoid maida. Thanks.

HYPOTHYROIDISM:--- where there is deficiency of thyroxine hormone leading to sluggishness, tired feeling, weight increase, slow heart beats, intolerance to cold, swelling of legs, feet and face, difficulty in concentrating and at times in speech.

Dear lybrate-user, diabetes has affected nerves of legs of your mother. It is called diabetic neuropathy. We need to control sugar very tightly and give her medicines to treat neuropathy. Balanced and healthy diet will help control sugar but can't treat neuropathy.

Hi Khajoor is dry dates and is rich in carbohydrates when compared to fresh dates. So I suggest you to have fresh dates, 1 or 2 a day, 2 to 3 times a week with careful monitoring of your blood sugars.

Mr. lybrate-user, If your blood glucose is 340 mg, it is very high. Needs to be brought down urgently. That can only be done by taking appropriate medications regularly plus taking restricted diet and regular exercise. Persistent high blood glucose leads to serious long term complications with multiple organs and systems in the body. These complications can cause blindness, kidney failure, lower limb ulceration, loss of lower limbs and heart attacks. Thanks.

Mr. Lybrate-user, the blood sugar levels mentioned by you look quite ok. It also important to look at hba1c%, if that is<7%, then one can say diabetes is in good control. If you maintai sugar levels at the present level then it will in preventing or postponing the long term complications of diabetes. You have also not mentioned about the drugs being taken and their dosage. As regards the hypertension, it is not in control, which is clear with the readings which you have mentioned. To give any suggestion I need to know your current treatment with dosage. Another important aspect is that you have a bmi of 27.57 kg/m2, which means over weight, it also is a major contributor for high bp and sugar levels. If you are looking for any specific guidance, it will be better if you come with details like present fasting and pp levels, hba1c%, bp readings and drugs with dosage and diet and exercise pattern. Then I will be able to guide.

I am 61 years of male and under control type 2 diabetes, and initially 103 kg of weight with 6ft height but after following 1300 cal diet, my weight does not comes down below 89 kg, why?

Your bmi is 26. 6, and you are overweight. You have to persist with a low carbohydrate and low fat, high protein diet. Stop all cereals, sugar, bakery products and desserts. Take the white of 2 boiled eggs and lots of fruits and green vegetables and salads. White meat like fish and chicken made in little bit of olive oil / cornflower oil is good. If you don' t loose weight you could consider bariatric surgery. For more details read the health tips I have written on this website or send me a personal question.

Hi Apple cider vinegar has lot of good effects on the body. It reduces weight, lowers cholesterol thereby reducing risk of heart disease and also has glucose lowering effect hence reduces blood sugar. 2 tsps of apple cider vinegar at bedtime reduces fasting blood sugar. Watch for low blood sugars.
