Hi, am 28 years old and I am hypothyroid and daily am taking 150 mcg tyronorm tablets. Even my mother is a hypothyroid patient. But am totally fine and don? t have complications with my hypothyroid. I got married a year before and ma wife is currently carrying (4 months). So would like to know would my kid also could get hypothyroid in future. Because I suspect me getting hypothyroid was genetic and I inherited the disease from my mother. Also would like to inform that my wife is totally healthy and do not have any complications.

I am suffering from hyperthyroidism nd I m taking thyroxine sodium tab. 100 mg from 3 months. Bt its still not within the value. Nd does it have any affect on wight?

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Mr. Lybrate-user, after starting the treatment it takes 6 to 8 weeks for tsh values to show any change, if the value has not come down towards normal, then tere needs an increase in the dosage of thyroxine being taken. Further after 6 weeks again tsh value has to checked and if still not in the normal range, then dose may have to be increased again. Effect on weight will be seen only once tsh level goes down to normal and you are taking special effort to reduce weight.

You are definitely diabetic and it may not any symptoms initially. You need treatment .Diabetes affects all organs in the body – Eyes, kidneys, nerves, reproductive system all are affected, In fact, from toe to hair. For diabetic control, patient and doctor should be in constant touch for regular follow up and advice. The common symptoms are :-Both types of diabetes have some of the same tell-tale warning signs. Hunger and fatigue. Your body converts the food you eat into glucose that your cells use for energy. But your cells need insulin to bring the glucose in. If your body doesn't make enough or any insulin, or if your cells resist the insulin your body makes, the glucose can't get into them and you have no energy. This can make you more hungry and tired than usual. Urinating more often and being thirstier. The average person usually has to pee between four and seven times in 24 hours, but people with diabetes may go a lot more. Dry mouth and itchy skin. Because your body is using fluids to make pee, there's less moisture for other things. You could get dehydrated, and your mouth may feel dry. Dry skin can make you itchy. Blurred vision. Changing fluid levels in your body could make the lenses in your eyes swell up. They change shape and lose their ability to focus. Diabetes, often referred to by doctors as diabetes mellitus, describes a group of metabolic diseases in which the person has high blood glucose (blood sugar), either because insulin production is inadequate, or because the body's cells do not respond properly to insulin, or both. It is a difficult task to control blood sugar in the desired normal range. Whatever we eat is metabolised to sugar in the body to provide energy for our daily activities. For the absolute control, one has to monitor his / her blood sugar at regular intervals (Self-Monitoring of Blood glucose – SMBG). Though difficult, this can be done by a glucometer and keep a record. Get an idea of Fasting sugar (FBS) and 2 hours after food (PPBS), & HbA1C (inform me) and check before dinner and after every major food. The basic idea is to reduce the food intake to 1/3 of what you take now. The dictum of sugar control is diet, exercise, diet + medicine and at later stage medicine+ Insulin will be needed. There are different diet plans of varying calories for each person depending on his activity & life style. For diabetes, hypertension (high BP) and many long-term illness control there is the need for regular advice and follow up. Just one time consultation or advice is not enough to guide a diabetic in scientifically & medically correct manner. For giving you regular follow up you ask me with all details like your daily eating pattern and medicines you take. I assure you a proper guidance. If you keep in touch personally.

Dear Mr. Lybrate-user, namaskar, you must ask the first question to a psychiatrist. Spine block injections are used to treat such discs which are not so bad in the mri but still causing problem to the patient. Or where the patient does not accept surgery despite an indication in the mri. This is a palliative measure to alleviate pain temporarily. For few weeks to few months. Can not be predicted by the doctor. The hashimoto's disease is treated by endocrinologists. He will be able to answer your question properly. Take care.

The best treatment of Gout consists of restoring the balance of Vata (Air element) and detoxifying the blood. High protein diet should be avoided in cases of increased uric acid. Mix one teaspoon of apple cider vinegar in a glass of water and drink it two to three times daily. If you find this remedy helpful, you can increase the dosage of apple cider vinegar to up to two tablespoons. Take maha rasnadi kwath 2-2 tsf twice a day. Take maha yograj guggul 1-1 twice a day. Kaishor guggul and chandraprabha vati 1-1 twice a day. Avoid junk food. Fermented food. Spicy food. Tea.coffee. Do pranayama early morning. Avoid alcohol consumption. Consult me in private for more details.

Uric acid is normally produced in body. The only thing is, you are not able to excrete fully, so it's level start rising. Only remedy to correct it is medicene. Because it is produced in excess by non veg, pulses and many vegetables also. Just take one tablet a day and eat every thing in small amounts and enjoy life. Eggs have to do nothing with uric acid, you can have it. .

Requires detailed examination and investigation. Preliminary investigations suggested: hb, tlc, dlc, esr, blood sugar fasting & pp, uric acid vit d urine r/e x-ray of the affected part. Anyway it may be tried sleep on a hard bed with soft bedding on it. Spring beds, folding beds or thick mattress are harmful use no pillow under the head. Do hot fomantation paracetamol 250mg od & sos x 5days. Caldikind plus 1tab od x10. Do neck, back, knee & general exercises. It may have to be further investigated. Do not ignore it. Let it not become beginning of a bigger problem. Make sure that patient is not allergic to any of the medicines that he/she is going to take. If it does not give relief in 4-5days, inform.

Dear, unfortunately, there is no method to remove the stone. However, diabetes can be well controlled with appropriate medications. Pl. Follow up regularly with your diabetologist who can help you to control your blood sugars. Also try to incorporate coconut oil in your diet as it is a medium chain triglyceride which will benefit in your condition.

Hba1c% 8.7, means diabetes control is not good. It should be <7%. On insulin one can achieve a very good blood sugar control. You should try to maintain fasting closer to 100 mg and pp 150 to 160 mg/100ml.
