hyperthyroidism before pregnancy means through pregnancy there is antithyroid treatment on. Carbimazole crosses the placental barrier, hence can affect the development of thyroid gland in fetus causing hypothyroidism. So propylthiouracil is preferred as it does not cross the placental barrier. However, there are possible side effects of these drugs affecting the pregnancy. Usually antithyroid drugs are given for 12 to 18 months and stopped. That could be one option when hyperthyroidism is completely controlled.

I had recently tested my thyroid profile. The results for TSH 3RD GENERATION was found to be 4.640 nIU/ml which is outside the safe range of 0.27-4.20. The T3 and T4 results are within the range. How risky is it for me?

MBBS, DNB (General Medicine)
Endocrinologist, Delhi
Tsh outside the range indicates hypothyroidism. But its not very advanced hypothyroidism because the tsh is still within 10 and since t3/t4 are within normal range - your hypothyroidism is subclinical - which means that you are still safe. However to decide whether you should be started or not - on thyroid medications- it is recommended that you undergo anti tpo antibody test - if it comes out to be high then you have to definitely take medicine.

Tips to control Diabetes

One teaspoon of methi seeds soaked overnight in 100 ml of water is very effective in controlling diabetes.

Intake of 6 almonds (soaked overnight) is also helpful in keeping a check on diabetes.

Good fats such as Omega-3 and monounsaturated fats (MUFA) should be consumed as they are good for the body.

Fruits high in fibre such as papaya, apple, orange, pear and guava should be consumed

Hello, If hypothyroidism is not in control (high TSH levels, then efforts to reduce weight are not fruitful. In fact hypothyroidism leads to weight gain. So firts thing is to bring it under very good control with TSH level maintained between 3 to 4 mU/L. If this is achieved, then efforts to control weight through regular exercise and diet restriction will be beneficial. Taking green tea by itself will not give any benefit unless diet is controlled with calorie restriction and regular exercise. Thanks.

Dear lybrate user, firstly remember that supplements which are used for weight enhancement or fat burners which are used for weight loss are all toxic to the liver. They are unnatural synthetic substances which increase bulk by wrong mechanisms. Your body will gain only by what you do naturally. Just hit the gym and increase your muscle mass- bulk will automatically follow.

I have gout. Uric acid is 7.5 mg/dl. Please tell me what precautions I need to take.

BHMS
Homeopath, Faridabad
Hi, Gout (also known as podagra when it involves the big toe) is usually characterized by recurrent attacks of inflammatory arthritis—a red, tender, hot, and swollen joint. Pain typically comes on rapidly in less than twelve hours. The joint at the base of the big toe is affected in about half of cases. It may also result in tophi, kidney stones, or urate nephropathy. Prevention: Both lifestyle changes and medications can decrease uric acid levels. Dietary and lifestyle choices that are effective include reducing intake of food such as meat and seafood, consuming adequate vitamin C, limiting alcohol and fructose consumption, and avoiding obesity. Coffee, but not tea, consumption is associated with a lower risk of gout. Medication: Take homoeooapthic medicine – Colchicum 30/ 3 times a day daily for 1 month, report back to me.

Hypothyroidism slows down metabolism so you need to burn out more calories than you consume to create negative energy balance & lose weight. 1. Be physically active- take stairs instead of lift, walk instead of hiring transport, exercise daily for 1 hr, join aerobic/ dancing/ swimming/ karate classes 2. Take your medication regularly as prescribed by the doctor 3. avoid raw cruciferous vegetables (cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli) 4. Have small frequent meals (6-8) 5. Eat slowly & chew your food well 6. Avoid junk/ processed/ packaged/ canned/ sugary/ fried foods, cold drinks, alcohol, energy drinks, chocolate, ice cream, sweets, glucose, potato, sugar, sabudana 7. Have plenty of whole fruits & vegetables (raw , cooked, boiled) 8. Replace refined grains (maida, white bread, white rice, noodles, biscuit, cake, sewai) with whole grains (atta, dalia, suji, bajra, oats, barley, atta bread, brown rice, jowar) 9. Maintain a regular sleep cycle. Sleep & wake up early. 10. Use less oil in cooking

There is no cure for diabetes. You can only control it with diet, exercise and drugs, cause is genetic, in other words destiny. Symptoms are excessive thirst, excessive urination, increased appetite, loss of weight, blurring of vision and skin infections.

Mr. lybrate-user, I do not understand the reason for this query. Revital is a vitamin plus ginseng containing supplement. If any one wants to take it, it can be taken. There is no restriction on using oit. However, what exact benefits are got is not clear. Thanks.

Mr Shiva, If you have T2 DM, then it should be properly treated with oral drugs and/or Insulin depending on sugar levels. I am sure you are already taking necessary treatment. Apart from that you have to take a balanced and restricted diet that gives exact calories based on ideal body weight (60 kgs), blood sugar levels and extent of daily exercise. You should avoid sweets, direct sugar and jaggery, deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries, sweetened aerated drinks, high fat cheese, ghee and butter. Consume more of green leafy vegetables and salads, permitted fruits (100 g a day). Exercise daily for more than 1 hour.

if you take alcohol then you have to stop drinking. you have to check your renal functions by doing appropriate blood investigations. because if your renal functions are not satisfactory then your uric acid will remain high
