hello and welcome to healthcare magic!!
well i would suggest you to continue the tablets that have been prescribed since your sugar levels are well above normal and you should start taking care of your diet too avoid sweets,junk food and consult a dietician for a complete diet chart and also start exercising atleast a walk for 45 mins a day for around 5 days a week, also get your sugar levels checked periodically both fasting and post prandial (after food).
take care.

Hi, i have been diagnosed with GDM in 7th month of pregnancy and have been taking insulin(30/70.- 18 units at night and 8 units in morning).Although my PP always came out between 100-115 but my sugar levels for fasting were always in the range of 120-140. Now since i m in my last month of pregnancy, my dr. has prescribed me Insulin N tritated as N -9AM(8units)-9PM(14 Units) along with Insulin R tritated as R -6 units before meals 3 times a day. I m 5 feet tall weighing 62 Kgs. Inspite of this insulin treatment and dietary regimen, my fasting sugar levels are shooting up than before(Fasting-130-150, PP-140-160). Pls advice if this is normal or not?

Hello. My husband is in post pancreatitis stage and is home leading a normal life . The cause of this illness remains a mystery to the doctors that attended to him as he does not drink alcohol and gall stones were also ruled out. My question is, what kind of foods shld he be eating? I don t want to know about diets that help lose your belly, I want to know about nutrition. What my husband does is if he gets an ache and upset tummy, he reviews what he ate over the last few meals and assumes a certain food caused and just says he wont eat it again, and this goes on til the next tummy ache. He does still take creon and he is not a diabetic at this stage based on tests that have been done. We are based in Cairns Aussie. Any advice or education on these issues wld be most appreciated.

I had a baby 18 months ago and previous to that suffered from Hyperthyroid due to a virus. I was suffering from significant tachycardia and excessive sweating at that time. RAI Uptake was done etc, Virus resolved rendering my thyroid now Hypoactive for the last 4 years. I am currently taking Synthroid 150mcg. I have been a runner my entire life however first trimester complications caused that to cease. I am not just getting back into it and training for a half marathon. I have noted that my heart rate even after 5 minutes of running is around 186 bpm. I went to my GP to have my TSH and T4 checked to be sure I wasn t over medicated. Everything was normal. His response to this high BPM was to add a Beta-blocker. I have leary of taking it because I have read it will greatly affect my performance while running. I also get a quivering type feeling here and there through out the day in my heart. I get extremely flush almost purple in my face when running. I m wondering if there could something significantly more wrong than the thyroid affect as my GP has mentioned. I asked for a stress test and he said I didn t need one. I am 34 years old, slightly overweight still from post-partum. no other medical conditions, no history of any previous medical conditions other than Gestational Induced Hypertension and ecclampsia which clearly has resolved and Gestational Diabetes which also resolved.
