I am hypothyroidism for 3 years. Last year in September TSH was 7.2. Endocrinologist started 112.5 mg thyronorm. After 2 months TSH was 1.24 but I had extreme weakness, tremors in limbs, loss of appetite. I discussed with endocrinologist but he told to continue with 112.5 mg thyronorm. In March this year I had same problem of extreme weakness, tremors, loss of appetite, loss of libido and no erection. I stopped thyronorm for a month and TSH was 19.2/Moreover my muscles used to get rigid suddenly and again soft on their own. I again told my endocrinologist but he said my treatment is correct. I did not follow his dosage but for 5 days took 112.5 mg and next 5 days 100 mg thyronorm and my TSH is 3.71, FT3 2.5, FT4 1.31 but my problem of loss of appetite and libido still persist.

Just a small introduction about myself before going to the problem. I am of Age 30. Working in IT. Weekly once I'll apply Parachute ayurvedic oil, later after 1 or 2 hours, I'll take head bath with Himalaya shampoo and one more thing I'm suffering from Hypothyroidism for 10 years and taking Thyroxine 125 mg daily morning. 1. My hair is always oily, eventhough I don't use hair oil daily. May I know the reason? 2. Day by day, my hair growth is becoming less. I am worried that I can see baldness is started lightly and improving. Also, when hair bath, I am seeing more hairfall/hair broken for first wash, at second wash, hairfall is less. It looks like my hair root is not strong. One of my friend, he suggested me to use Minoxidil tropical solution 2% and Cipla Adgain capsule. Please help/advice me to get hair growth and avoid baldness. - Thanks for all the reply.
I had done angioplasty four years age. Regularly I am taking medicine for clostrol, diabetes, BP etc. Though I am taking diabetic medicine, my sugar level after food is around 300. What should I do?
Diabetes is a complex group of diseases with a variety of causes. People with diabetes have high blood glucose, also called high blood sugar or hyperglycemia.
Diabetes is a disorder of metabolism, the way the body uses digested food for energy. The digestive tract breaks down carbohydrates, sugars and starches found in many foods, into glucose, a form of sugar that enters the bloodstream. Diabetes develops when the body doesn't make enough insulin or is not able to use insulin effectively, or both.
The two main types of diabetes are:
Type 1 Diabetes: Type 1 diabetes typically occurs in children and young adults, though it can appear at any age. In the past, type 1 diabetes was called juvenile diabetes or insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus.
Heredity plays an important part in determining who is likely to develop type 1 diabetes. Genes are passed down from biological parent to child.
Type 2 Diabetes: Type 2 diabetes develops most often in middle-aged and older people who are also overweight or obese. The disease, once rare in youth, is becoming more common in overweight and obese children and adolescents. Type 2 diabetes is caused by a combination of factors, including insulin resistance, a condition in which the body's muscle, fat, and liver cells do not use insulin effectively.
Physical Inactivity, Obesity, and Diabetes: Physical inactivity and obesity are strongly associated with the development of type 2 diabetes. People who are genetically susceptible to type 2 diabetes are more vulnerable when these risk factors are present. About 80 percent of people with type 2 diabetes are overweight or obese.
An imbalance between caloric intake and physical activity can lead to obesity, which causes insulin resistance and is common in people with type 2 diabetes. Central obesity, in which a person has excess abdominal fat, is a major risk factor not only for insulin resistance and type 2 diabetes but also for heart and blood vessel disease, also called cardiovascular diseases (CVD). This excess belly fat produces hormones and other substances that can cause harmful, chronic effects in the body such as damage to blood vessels.
So, measuring your waist is a quick way of assessing your diabetes risk. This is a measure of abdominal obesity, which is a particularly high-risk form of obesity. Women have a higher risk of developing type 2 diabetes if their waist measures 80cm (31.5 inches) or more. Asian men with a waist size of 89cm (35 inches) or more have a higher risk, as do white or black men with a waist size of 94cm (37 inches) or more.
Simple Steps to Lower Your Risk: Making a few lifestyle changes can dramatically lower the chances of developing type 2 diabetes. The same changes can also lower the chances of developing heart disease and other life taking cancers.
- Control Your Weight: Being overweight increases the chances of developing type 2 diabetes seven-fold. Being obese makes you 20 to 40 times more likely to develop diabetes than someone with a healthy weight. Losing weight can help if your weight is above the healthy-weight range. Check your BMI. Losing 7 to 10 percent of your current weight can cut your chances of developing type 2 diabetes in half.
- Get Moving and Turn Off the Television: Inactivity promotes type 2 diabetes. Working your muscles more often and making them work harder improves their ability to use insulin and absorb glucose. This puts less stress on your insulin-making cells.
- Tune Up Your Diet: Four dietary changes can have a big impact on the risk of type 2 diabetes-
Choose whole grains and wholegrain products over highly processed carbohydrates.
- Skip the sugary drinks, and choose water, coffee, or tea instead.
- Choose good fats instead of bad fats.
- Limit red meat and avoid processed meat; choose nuts, whole grains, poultry, or fish instead.
If you are already suffering from diabetes, then do take a walk everyday and adopt healthy eating habits. Along with that relieve your stress and take proper doses of insulin or medications as prescribed by your doctor. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor.
