I am 27 years old and my weight is 43 kg. I am underweight. What is the reason? am I suffering from thyroid? Please advise.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Being under weight could be due to many reasons like genetics, metabolic reasons, lack of adequate food intake, gastro intestinal disorders, malabsorption problems, over exercise and hyperthyroidism. If you have any of these based on the assessment of doctor, specific treatment may have to be taken. Have checked thyroid functions? if that is normal then you have to eat well, take foods like cheese, milk, protein powders, fruits, nuts etc in addition to normal diet. Also exercise daily to increase the appetite.

TSH can vary between early morning and evening values. Even in the normal range that varies among the laboratories higher normal value is 25 times the lower normal value. So please do not be bothered about these variations. Having said that it seems that you may need thyroid medication after thorough clinical evaluation by an Endocrinologist. You can meet DM Endocrinology doctor for the initial evaluation. The idea is to adjust the dose of medication that is best for you.

Diploma in Diabetology, MBBS
Endocrinologist,
Can you please tell me pre-diabetic condition. Please Advise precautions.
In medical terms, pre-diabetic condition is when you have impaired glucose tolerance or impaired fasting glucose. Both these conditions increase chances of progressing to full-blown diabetes, however, both these conditions can be tackled without medicines by starting a good exercise and diet routine.

Keeping Diabetes a Secret

M D Internal Medicine
General Physician, Ahmedabad
Keeping Diabetes a Secret


Most people with diabetes – myself included – have things about their diabetes that they prefer to keep to themselves. But as a diabetes psychologist, one of the biggest challenges that I have in my practice is when I have a patient who prefers to keep their diabetes, and everything that it involves, a secret from people in their life. I’m not talking about details like their last A1c or what their blood sugar was the last time that they checked, but everything. When someone tells me that they prefer to hide diabetes from other people, it usually tells me that they aren’t taking care of themselves.

I don’t necessarily think that choosing to be secretive about having diabetes is necessarily a problem in and of itself. Everyone has the right to share, or not, anything about their health care, including what medical conditions they face. However I am a firm believer that behavior (which also includes the ‘act’ of not doing something) is functional. So when someone wants to be secretive about having diabetes, my question is ‘what function does this need for secrecy serve?’ Generally, it is one of 3 things:

Denial: A big reason that people with diabetes don’t tell others about their diabetes is because they are having trouble accepting that they have diabetes. By keeping it a secret, it helps them keep up the belief that there’s nothing wrong. Talking about having diabetes to others makes having diabetes seem more real. Not telling others about their diabetes lets them hold out hope that it will just go away (Spoiler alert: It won’t!)

Embarrassment: It’s really common for people to be embarrassed about having diabetes. This embarrassment usually comes from one of two places. First people may be embarrassed that they are not ‘healthy’ and feel like there is something wrong with them. Second, some people are embarrassed by the things they have to do to manage diabetes, like wear a pump, give themselves a shot, or check their blood sugar. They feel like diabetes makes them different and may have some affect on their relationships. To help them feel less embarrassed, some people keep diabetes a secret.

Burn-out: People tend to talk to their friends and family members about things they are excited about and that are important to them. If someone is keeping their diabetes a secret, it may be a sign that they are burned out and that diabetes isn’t a priority to them at that time. This is a normal feeling. What people forget sometimes is that keeping diabetes a secret from others can make it a lot harder to get support and encouragement.

While some people find that keeping diabetes a secret may work for a time, but it also usually causes other problems. First, keeping a part of you life hidden from those around you takes a lot of work and can be exhausting. Also, keeping diabetes a secret usually means people aren’t able to manage their diabetes very well, making them feel bad physically.

Before choosing to keep diabetes a secret from others remember to ask yourself what function does keeping it a secret serve. Your answer may surprise you!

Is contraceptive pills reduce the ova formation? Long time intake reduces fertility about 20-25 years.

MD-Ayurveda, Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)
Sexologist, Haldwani
Hello- a woman becomes pregnant when an egg released from her ovary (the organ that holds her eggs) is fertilized by a man's sperm. The fertilized egg attaches to the inside of a woman's womb (uterus), where it receives nourishment and develops into a baby. Hormones in the woman's body control the release of the egg from the ovary -- called ovulation -- and prepare the body to accept the fertilized egg. Related content slideshow your birth control options start hormonal contraceptives (the pill, the patch, and the vaginal ring) all contain a small amount of man-made estrogen and progestin hormones. These hormones work to inhibit the body's natural cyclical hormones to prevent pregnancy. Pregnancy is prevented by a combination of factors. The hormonal contraceptive usually stops the body from ovulating. Hormonal contraceptives also change the cervical mucus to make it difficult for the sperm to go through the cervix and find an egg. Hormonal contraceptives can also prevent pregnancy by changing the lining of the womb so it's unlikely the fertilized egg will be implanted. Another option for hormonal contraceptives is the extended-cycle pill, such as seasonale, which was the first one to be approved. Seasonale contains the same hormones as other birth control pills, but the hormones are taken in a longer cycle. That reduces the number of menstrual periods from 13 periods a year to only four a year. That means a woman who takes this pill will menstruate only once each season. Seasonale contains the same combination of two hormones that are commonly used in other hormonal contraceptives. But the pill is taken continuously for 12 weeks followed by one week of inactive pills, which results in a menstrual cycle. Other extended-cycle pills, such as seasonique and loseasonique use a different configuration of hormones. Both of these pills use estrogen in the final week, with loseasonique providing a lower dose option.

Hello Sir, Your results show that you are having overt hypothyroidism. You need to go on Thyroid hormone replacement medication. You have to take this tablet once a day on an empty stomach in the morning. You need to get your Thyroid function tests repeated once every 6-8 weeks. . You can consult me privately through Lybrate if you wish. Then I can thoroughly assess you and prescribe the medication. Alternatively see a good endocrinologist. I hope this answer has helped you Thank you.

Red meat is probably the most well known foods high in uric acid causing purines. Try to avoid beef, lamb, venison and mutton and instead replace them with white meats such as chicken or duck, which don't contain as many purines but should be eaten only occasionally. Even better replacements are vegetarian alternatives. Also alcohol. Repeat test after fasting overnight.
