I am 5'2", I weigh 128.5, I am adopted so I don't know if any of my family had diabetes. and I belong to a gym. I go 2-3 times a week for about 45 min. I use10 machines and use a rowing machine, and walk on the treadmill. I do take Synthroid for Hasimoto's, Femara fro breast cancer treatment( Post treatment), Singular for allergies and Symbicort for Chronic Bronchitis and Medcor to lower my cholesterol, it's about 150. Thanks for your help!

Brief Answer:
hi there

Detailed Answer:
Dear madam thank you for providing the information needed.

i am very happy to see that you are going to gym and very active.

After analysing your medical history i am able to make out that you are slightly over weight and your doctor also diagnosed as pre diabetes.

Pre-diabetes means that the body is already having trouble getting your blood sugar numbers down to a healthy range, but it hasn't yet reached a level considered diabetic. It also means you have the power to take important steps that can help you avoid diabetes.

The main reason for falling of blood sugar might be due to mismatch of glucose absorption and first phase insulin release.

During very early stage of pre diabetes,After taking food the signal from our stomach will reach pancreas in a delayed time.usually in a healthy individual the release of insulin and glucose absorption will be synchronized.
Due to loss of this synchronization and delayed release of insulin the sugar will drop more than expected.
To this mechanism insulin resistance also will contribute a little.This mechanism is called as Reactive hypo glycemia

i am very happy to say that you are already adopted active lifestyle by going to gym regularly.This kind of active lifestyle will keep diabetes away from you.
please follow a balanced diet pattern.
Have a diabetes free and healthy life

Hi Doc my name is Jash, 29, 5'2" in height, and weighs 102 lbs., married. I am having this dry cough since I was young and had a history of bronchitis when i was 1 year old.Just recently, Im having colds, sore throat, productive cough and excessive mucus that bothers me so much especially at night. I took muculytic syrup and capsules, natural cough remedies such as lemon and ginger but i think there's no improvement, Cough still bothers me and it gets even harder and dryer that sometimes i may experience tightness of the chest,and one thing that makes me worried is that we're in the process of having a baby. I am a year married but still wanting to have a child, Does having this (severe) cough would greatly affect of our desire to pregnancy?What are the foods that i need to get rid off that may trigger severe cough and foods that are healthy to the lungs?and if ever I am a week pregnant now then i happened to take this muculytic syrups does it affect the child? i am hoping that my query will be given clarity. Thank you so much doc.

My 8 year old has a croupy cough which comes out mor ein morning and night and when she is running around so we have restricted activity. She has no fever or other symptoms. She has been on a steroid now twice a day since Saturday. She went to school today but the cough sounds even worse now. I also have been givign her abuterol inhaler twice a day as well. My younger daughter had bronchitis last week. Wondering if she needs a nebulizer. Her breathing though seems fine. I would have thought the abuterol would have done the trick and this is day three of the meds. Help!
