Urine infection, urine test shows elevated sugar level. What can be done? - Online Doctor Chats
got a query for my wife
she is around 41 yrs
welcome to XXXXXXX ,. please proceed with your query
recently she had some urine infection,
hence we got a urine test done....where it also showed the sugar level as ++
we were then advised by our family doc to do a sugar test
blood sugar test
were any blood tests done , blood sugar fasting ?
the readings were Pre fasting - 242.4
and PP was 274.6
i understand that this is really high
YES, it is very high, and could be a indicator of diabetes
1 tab in afternoon and half at night
we propose to re do a test after a week
to make sure
wanted your suggestion
firstly is the medicine prescribed ok?
HBA1C is a test, to check the level of glycemic control , in the body . it gives a level of blood sugar over the past 3 months
yes, your doctor has started her proper medications to reduce the blood sugar, and treat diabetes
also she does feel very weak
and heaviness in the head
has this started recently ?
sometimes she is not sure , but feels 'uneasiness in the head
ofter taking the medications ?
the high sugar was detected only recently
after ** ?
and she has just started taking the medicines
no, i mean the symptoms ?
the symtpons were there quite some time ago
does she have them since long ? any other issues like increased urination at night , feeling thirsty, ?
urge to urinate was only recently ... but now ok
she did complaint of feeling thirstly
and at time uneasy breathing
those symptoms are due to diabetes related
what other tests would you recommend
with time and proper treatment her symptoms will come down
we plan to do some comprehensive tests in the near furture
these urine tests, help to detect early changes and extent of involvement of the kidneys
thank you Dr XXXXX
any particular diet - though i guess sweet things should be avoided
yes, she will have to follow a low carb diet and a low fat diet
regular exercises will also be needed
she has begun to walk for around 10 mins
ask her to increase it to 30 mins daily
10 mins is not enough
reduce eating too much of rice and starchy foods like potatos
any more suggestions?
i shall ask the customer care to contact you for that
can i have ur no and email id
0000 / YYYY@YYYY
i have intimated the Customer care
they will contact u soon
in addition, she should continue to take the medications prescribed for a long time
regular blood checks, at least 2-3 times a month initially to check for proper control is adviced
she can also invest in a good glucometer, to check the blood sugar at home
also make sure that her BP is within normal
can you suggest some good brand names?
Omron blood pressure monitor and One touch ultra sugar instrument
you can check them online at WWW.WWWW.WW which give good discounts
that should be helpful - tks
