My father is 64 years old, have regular altoxin 50 tablet (for thyroid), but his present TSH is 7.91 (reference range - .30-5.5).Should he continue with that medicine or will change the power?

Hello, For achieving good control in hypothyroidism TSH should be maintained between 3 to4 mU/L, otherwise most symptoms reappear. So it is necessary for him to increase the dosage. Thanks.

May be you should first try and reduce your breakfast, lunch and dinner portion size of food and replace it by more vegetables, salad and soup or divide these three feeds into 6 small meals. Daily regular 30 to 45 minutes exercise also will help. If no result within 15 days the you may need to adjust your insulin dosage and additional drug therapy before lunch after doing fresh bsf/. Bspp/hba1c/s. Creatinine reports.

Why is hypothyroidism caused and what should be the diet for people suffering from this disease?

Why is hypothyroidism caused and what should be the diet for people suffering from this disease?
usually thyroid issues do not occur in isolation. It is important to look at relative deficiencies of other hormones that influence metabolism. Nevertheless, a simplistic answer to your question would be to go for what is known as a" hormone friendly" diet also known as" non-inflammatory" diet. Iodine supplements also help, but it is better to have a structured, supervised supplementation regimen.

Mr. lybrate-user, Honey contains sucrose which is same as sugar. If person with diabetes takes it then it is like eating sugar. There will be a rapid increase in the blood glucose level, depending on how much honey is taken. Plus I have no idea as what advantage honey has in "ulcer like condition" Hence I am of te opinion it should be avoided. Thanks.

Mr prediabetic condition is described when fasting is above 110 mg and pp is between 141 - 199 mg/ 100 ml. It is also called impaired glucose tolerance (igt). At 202 mg it is considered as diabetes. To rule out whether you are having diabetes ir not please get a glucose tolerance test done at lab and inform me the results. Precautions to be taken are to control your weight so that bmi does no cross 23kg/m2 which is at present 24.61 kg/m2, avoid direct sweets, deep fried foods, exercise regularly for more than 1 h a day. Plus avoid fruits like mangoes, chikoos, grapes, bananas.

Diabetes mellitus can be easily managed with dietary modification, lifestyle & ayurvedic medicine. First undergo vaman karma at a panchakarma centre near you and take rasayan medicine for 3 months. After that take light food, min. 6 hrs gap between meals, take a maximum of 1 ltr liquids in 24 hrs. Take a mixture of trifala, haldi, daruhaldi 1 tsf daily night.

Diabetic patent who is under medication and sugar level is in limits, can use HONEY?

Diabetic patent who is under medication and sugar level is in limits, can use HONEY?
Mr. Lybrate-user, well, if blood sugar levels are in strict control with fasting closer to 100 mg, pp 150 to 160 mg, hba1c%<7, then one may consider taking a spoonful a day. But honey is simply another form of cane sugar, with 50 % fructose & 50% glucose, plus some vitamins and antioxidants. It is bound to increase blood sugar levels almost immediately. Thanks for the question.

Infertility: Causes And Symptoms!

MS - Obstetrics and Gynaecology, MBBS
IVF Specialist, Dibrugarh
Infertility: Causes And Symptoms!

Infertility is a condition where a couple, trying to conceive in a natural way is not able to do so even after one year of trying. It is also a matter of worry for patients who are over the age of 35 years and those who are not able to conceive naturally even after 12 months of trying constantly.

Causes: There are many causes of infertility. It may be down to a condition present in one or both partners. Ovulation and fertilisation are the main elements of the conception process and any condition in the female or male can upset either function, which can make it difficult to conceive.

While abnormal sperm production and transport may be a common condition that leads to infertility in males, other factors like side effects of cancer treatments and too much exposure to toxins and chemicals can also play an important role in this regard. For females, the causes of infertility may range from ovulation disorders, uterine and fibroid tumours, uterine and cervical anomalies, damage to or blockage of the fallopian tubes, endometriosis, primary ovarian insufficiency and pelvic adhesions.

Infertility Symptoms in Women

In women, changes in the menstrual cycle and ovulation may be a symptom of a disease related to infertility. Symptoms include:

  • Abnormal periods. Bleeding is heavier or lighter than usual.
  • Irregular periods. The number of days in between each period varies each month.
  • No periods. You have never had a period, or periods suddenly stop.
  • Painful periods. Back pain, pelvic pain, and cramping may happen.

Treatment: Female patients can turn to medication that will stimulate ovulation, intrauterine insemination, and surgical processes to correct a uterine septum and remove endometrial polyps, or even a hysteroscopy surgery. Male patients can go through a treatment for any existing infections, hormonal injections and medication, surgical options like vasectomy reversal and art or assistive reproductive technology.

If these methods fail, the patient or the couple can always turn to methods like in vitro fertilisation. For other mild reasons, lifestyle changes along with a stress free environment can help in increasing the chances of conception. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a gynaecologist.

Hello Mr. Lybrate-user, first of all I would like to tell you that don't be disappointed, there are so many people who are living with diabetes life long but it is under controlled with the help of medicine & diet planning. Your hba1c should be in the range of 6-6.5% for good control of diabetes. There are some dietary changes that will help you. Take small & frequent meal. Take more & more green leafy vegetables & salad in your daily meal. Avoid simple sugar & simple carbs in your diet. Avoid oily/ fried / outside food. Take whole wheat products or fiber rich diet like daliya/ oats/ multi grain flour etc. Take 1 cup of green tea in a day. Do regular walk/ exercise/ swimming/ jogging whatever you like atleast for 30 minutes.
