High lipid profile, high uric acid 9.4, sugar fasting 134. Hb-1ac-1=5.7 sgpt/shot is also high. Age-28+

My friend. Each of these levels in blood has immense long term impact on your system. And if the blood reports are correct, then you definitely need medications. If you can not control the level of these components in your blood but you are gonna have serious complications in later life. My general advice would be, firstly stop smoking and drinking immediately if you have any of these addictions. Reduce junk food and fatty food to a minimum. Avoid meat, especially mutton. Along with these you also need quite a few medications. Consult with your doctor or feel free to consult me privately via lybrate so that I i can prescribe you the medications after thorough assessment of your condition. Will be happy to help.

She is pregnant from 2 months she has also take a medicine 75 mg of thyroid what's your suggestions at this stages.

It is absolutely alright to continue thyroid medication during pregnancy. In fact it may be hazardous to stop it, abortions, growth retardation, mental defects may occur with the baby. But three monthly thyroid test assays are to be done to see whether there is a tight control or note. The dosage needs titration during pregnancy.

I am 34 years old. I am suffering from thyroid. My t3 is 23. And due to which my weight is increasing. I am also suffering from belly fat.

MBBS, MD - Internal Medicine
Internal Medicine Specialist, Faridabad
You can take Nutrient-rich foods that improve your health may also benefit your thyroid gland, antioxidant-rich fruits and vegetables more plenty of water: Blueberries, tomatoes, bell peppers, and other foods rich in antioxidants can improve overall health and benefit the thyroid gland. Eating foods high in B vitamins, like whole grains, may also help. Selenium: Tiny amounts of selenium are needed for enzymes that make thyroid hormones to work properly. Eating selenium-rich foods, such as sunflower seeds or Brazil nuts, can be beneficial. Tyrosine: This amino acid is used by the thyroid gland to produce T3 and T4. Taking a supplement may help, avoid alcohl if you take. go for morning walk, avoid stress. eat fat less foods. for thyroid you can take tab. thyronorm 100mcg. once a day in morning.

Doctor Prescribed Glycomet GP 1 forte (Glimepiride (1 mg, Metformin (1000 mg)) two times a day after meal. But while taking as advised saw that feeling headache & nausea. So taking Glycomet GP 1 forte at night & GLYCOMET GP 2 MG/500 MG (Glimepiride (2 mg, Metformin (500 mg)) TABLET after lunch? The side effects are gone. Is there any problem is this combination? One more thing want to know which one is better in case of Type 2 sugar control of the patients having pancreatitis, GLYCOMET GP 1 MG/500 MG or GLYCOMET GP 2 MG/500 MG?

Diabetologist, Jabalpur
You should keep checking your blood glucose fasting and 2 hrs post food regularly. You may have developed some mild GI side effecr with your previous medicine which are gone with the new that tou have started. But hypoglycemia is a risk which can be prevented with regular monitoring. For chronic pancreatitis patient with diabetes this combination is okay. But insulin will be better in acute pancreatitis or with increased abdominal pain any time. Keep monitoring.

lybrate-userji, Thanks for the query. Looking at your weight and height yiur BMI is 39.22 kgs, showing almost grade 3 obesity. It is better for you to get your thyroid assay done. Because you may be already having hypothyroidism. Your ideal body weight should be 52 kgs as against you are 91 kgs. Hypothyroidism causes weight gain as one of the main symptoms. Plus also causes menstrual irregularity. So please check your thyroid hormmonal values and come back. Thanks.

Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. Let me tell you there are very few orthopaedic conditions that can lead to swelling in your feet region. Both of you are advised to see a physician and get your lft, kft, thyroid tests, cardiac check ups done as all these conditions can commonly lead to swelling. Also your protein levels in body is important, because if that goes down, then it can lead to generalised swelling. Also sometimes swelling can actually happen in vascular issues as well, so consult these dotors as advised. In orthopaedic and musculoskeletal conditions, generally such swellings can take place after injuries, infections, chronic inflammatory conditions etc. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance. Thanks & regards Dr. Akshay kumar saxena Consultant orthopaedics fortis hospital, new delhi.

My wife is 20 year old and she is suffering from PCOS andshe is taking Harmoni F tablet, 2 tab / day. And I hear from someone that PCOS patient did not give birth is is right. And I am 30 year old and suffering from hypothyroidism from last 2 years. And I am taking thyroxine 25mg/day. What will be the affect of Pcos and hypothyroidism to my baby? Me and my wife have fear that we we are not able to give birth.

Your hypothyroidism won't affect baby. Pcos patients have difficulty in conceiving. But most of them do conceive with medicines or other procedures. Once conception takes place, pcos doesn't harm baby.

Hi there, I'm 36 year old and having pain in my heal from past 3 years. I hv checked my uric acid and it's between normal range. I were in a job where I hv to stand for 6 hour but from past 2 year I'm not doing that job but still whenever I'm walking or playing it starts again. It seems that something is there in my heel and that's hurting me a lot.

MBBS
General Physician, Mumbai
Dear lybrateuser, - Your problem could be due to a bony growth in the heel known as spur - avoid standing for long, wear a sport shoe with proper fitting & cushion sole for proper padding effect while walking - dip foot in warm water 2-3 times a day for 10 min - do x- ray foot to know the exact cause, consult a doctor.

My mother is 56 years old. She is a diabetic for the past 15 years. She now takes the following tablets: glucoryl, Cildip 10, Telma 80 h, ziten. She also has high blood pressure. Off late she has loose motion, a common side effect of voglibose in glucoryl it seems. Any advice on how to counter that without the use of insulin?

Dear lybrate-user, I understand your concern for your mother's health. First of all I'm not suggesting insulin for your mother but please understand that insulin isn't our enemy! It is the most time tested medical molecule in market for last hundred years and it has save millions of people from premature deaths due to diabetes. Having said that a doctor can help you by titrating all existing oral drugs as well as adding new molecules in treatment can help your mom achieve better blood sugar levels without insulin. Regards.

Dear Lybrate User, I should appreciate you for the fact you believe that diabetes can be controlled by lifestyle modifications. Yes that's true, though it's not irreversible. Good that you have concentrated on physical activity , do concentrate on your diet as well. Make flaxseed, drumstick leaves, curry leaves powder and sprinkle 30 gm daily on all the foods you consume throughout the day. Also sprinkle wheat bran and germ daily 30gm throughout on all foods you consume. Consume lot of leeks and lettuce smoothie which is high in fibre content. Also you can consume raw lady's finger water soaked overnight for your diabetes condition.

I am 23 years. I would like to know the one crucial factor that will lead to diabetes. Does staying in urban or rural impact diabetes since I stay in a city. Also want to know how to stay away from diabetes ?

Diabetes onset is multifactorial. No way to predict it. Live healthy, eat healthy, act healthy, have peace of mind and regular exercise. Does not guarantee that you will not get diabetes but is advised. And be realistic, there are no absolute solutions for diseases which are 100% foolproof. What in life is 100% certain?

Is there any chances that subclinical hypothyroidism will return to its normal level if left untreated, if yes then how much (in % approx)

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Mr. Lybrate-user, it is difficult to predict whether sub clinical hypothyroidism will revert to normally thyroid. But most often subclinical hypothyroidism does become an overt hypothyroidism in about fem months to a year or so.

My husband is suffering from diabetics for the last four months what food he will take and fruit please advice.

PGDD, RD, Bachelor of Home Science
Dietitian/Nutritionist, Mumbai
For a diabetic it is best advised to have a diet planned as per the sugar levels, lifestyle and history. Though you can follow some guidelines - have small frequent meals. Do not fast for more than 2-3 hours. Avoid a very heavy meal at one time. Avoid fruit juices, aerated drinks or sugarcane juice, honey, jaggery or sugar. Fruits should be had as a mid meal. Avoid junk foods. Exercise and stay active. Do not attempt to try out too many remedies as you could go into hypoglycaemia. Sleep well. It's all a matter of discipline.
