I have high tsh and normal t3 and t4. The report says I have mild subclinical hypothyroidism. I have done the test twice and got the same result. What measures should I take with respect to my diet, exercise and sleep? Also is it possible to cure it completely? I'm 42 and female. What other health risks should I look out for? Thank you.

You need to start the medication if not started, If already on the medication then you need to increase your current dose.You will need to reduce your weight by following a proper diet & doing regular exercise... however that can happen only once your TSH is normalised.

Mr. Lybrate-user, the figure mentioned is 288, what is it related to blood sugar (fasting or pp). Bp can not 288 mm hg. Please clarify all the readings properly, like fasting & pp sugar levels and hba1c% as well as bp readings like systolic / diastolic. Also mention if you are on any treatment for either of these conditions.

Because of the steroid prescribed for the lichen planus it is affecting the sugar. Check whether she is having the steroids for lichen planus. Lichen planus can easily treated by homeopathy. Get her for regular walking and exercise which will benefit her a lot to overcone the problem. Steroid increase sugar and ultimately high sugar will increase more itching. So avoid having drug which will increase sugar.

Thyroid - Can it Prevent You from Getting Pregnant?

MBBS, MS - Obstetrics and Gynaecology

Thyroid - Can it Prevent You from Getting Pregnant?

The human body works as directed by the various hormones released by the endocrine system. These hormones are essential for coordination of various body functions. From the height a person achieves to the metabolic reactions in the body to the reproductive cycle to the stress levels a person can handle, all are hormone controlled.

Pregnancy is another critical, complicated phase that a woman goes through. It is one of the most awaited phases in a woman’s life; however, it is not very simple either. The above-noted hormones play a major role in this pregnancy, as the baby is dependent on the mother for its initial supply of hormones until it can start producing its own hormones. If the baby does not receive the require amounts, there could be various detrimental effects during development and post birth.

Hypothyroidism or an underactive thyroid is extremely common in women and there are multiple theories about how hypothyroidism can affect a woman’s chances of getting pregnant. While the correlation between hypothyroidism and pregnancy are quite well researched, a strong connection stating hypothyroid women being not able to be pregnant is yet to be proven.

The following are some correlations between hypothyroidism and pregnancy.

Increased chance of miscarriage: Women with reduced thyroid functions have double the chances of having a miscarriage. Women suffering from thyroid are at a risk of recurrent miscarriages during the first trimester. The chances of miscarriages during the second trimester are also about 40% higher in hypothyroid women. These women are also at a risk of:

  1. Premature labour
  2. Low birth weight
  3. Increased chances of stillbirth
  4. Maternal anemia
  5. Postpartum hemorrhage
  6. Developmental defects and/or delays in the newborn
  7. Placental abruption
  8. High blood pressure

One of the reasons identified for infertility in women is hypothyroidism. This range varies from 1% to 40% and so remains to be proven still. In addition, the hypothyroid mother will have a set of symptoms to live through, which may be further complicated given the pregnancy. Thyroid replacement should be religiously done and monitored to ensure TSH levels are at the optimal required levels (2.5 to 3 mIU/L) during the entire duration of pregnancy.

If you have the following, be sure to go through a comprehensive thyroid screening before and during pregnancy.

  1. Family history of thyroid
  2. History of thyroid dysfunction or goitre or thyroid antibodies
  3. Clinical signs and symptoms suggestive of hypothyroidism
  4. History of repeated miscarriages
  5. History of head and neck radiation
  6. Family/personal history of autoimmune disorders

While it still remains to be proven that hypothyroidism per se can stop a woman from being pregnant, there are definitely effects of hypothyroidism on the developing child and the mother. A comprehensive screening and close monitoring through pregnancy are extremely essential. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a gynaecologist.

I have type 2 Diabetes. Recently diagnosed for glomurenia (membranous). What should be the future procedure?

I have type 2 Diabetes. Recently diagnosed for glomurenia (membranous).
What should be the future procedure?
in t2 dm kidney does get affected. But a strict blood sugar control will help in maintaining kidneys in good functioning condition for a very long time, that is for whole of life time. The word mentioned by you is (glomurenia membranous) is rather unclear. Diabetes does affect glomerulous, particularly the filtering membrane in it. So it is essential to maintain blood glucose levels as normal as possible. Objective is to achieve fasting glucose close to 100 mg, pp 150 to 160 mg and hba1c%<6.8 at your age. That will help you to keep kidneys in good condition. If glucose levels go high, then damage to kidney is hastened. If you have any doubts please do come back. Thanks for the query.

you should get your pp rechecked. There may be mistake. you can also do your fasting insulin and c peptide along with FBS again. But it would be costly.

Mr. Lybrate-user, if someone has diabetes then it is essential to get it treated with appro0riate drugs either oral anti diabetes drugs or insulin. Choice of drugs will depend on the age, type of diabetes and severity of the condition. When diabetes is uncontrolled weight loss does occur. Once disease is well controlled, then patient tends to regain the weight in a few months. Thanks.

Mr Manjunath, Along with taking appropriate medicines are exercising regularly for more than 1 hour a day? That is vey important as it increases Insulin action and helps reduce resistance to its action. Plus taking a balanced and restricted diet providing exact calories based on Ideal Body Weight, blood sugar levels and extent of daily exercise. These measure are also equally essential. Plus there may be a need to have a re look at present treatment and additional therapy may be needed.

MD
General Physician, Delhi
Hi , Along with medication ,try dietary , exercise option as well. 1. Consume a low-calorie diet (often less than 1,400-1,800 calories a day). Most people cannot adhere to this kind of low-calorie diet. 2. Consume a Mediterranean diet, with lots of fresh fruits and vegetables, fish and beans as protein sources, and omega-3 and monounsaturated fats (olive oil), while avoiding saturated fats, refined carbohydrates, cholesterol-laden foods, excess omega-6 fats, and most animal products. An increasing percentage of health-conscious Americans are adopting this kind of diet 3. Avoid sugary fruit juices (almost all fruit juices contain too many sugars) and beverages spiked with fructose,80-84 sucrose,85-89 and/or high-fructose corn syrup.Consume a low-glycemic index and low-glycemic load diet. Brisk walks for 20-30 mins at lest 5 times a week
