It appears you have hypothyroidism. When you were taking thyroxine hormone tsh (thyroid stimulating hormone) levels were low. On stopping that levels have gone up. You have to restart the same medicine at same dosage, it must be taken on empty stomach early morning and nothing thereafter for two hrs. Please follow this meticulously for life. On taking treatment you will be able to lose weight, but the intensity of exercise has to increase to more than one hr a day. Also control your diet.

Mr. lybrate-user, If you are talking about psoriasis, then please understand this condition shows remissions and does reappear. It will not go away. Treatment has to go on. Same is the case with hypothyroidism, it is also to be treated for lifetime. When on treatment TSH should be between 3 to 4 mU/L, to be free from all symptoms. So please look at the TSH levels. Thanks.

Mr. lybrate-user, I do not know who has suggested whisky is good for diabetes. Alcohol in any form is bad for diabetes. It gives empty calories, does not provide any energy, damages liver, affects awareness of hypoglycemia, affects appetite, damages intestinal mucosa. I am not aware how it is useful Thanks.

For a diabetic it is best advised to have a diet planned as per the sugar levels, lifestyle and history. Though you can follow some guidelines - have small frequent meals. Do not fast for more than 2-3 hours. Avoid a very heavy meal at one time. Avoid fruit juices, aerated drinks or sugarcane juice, honey, jaggery or sugar. Fruits should be had as a mid meal. Avoid junk foods. Exercise and stay active. Do not attempt to try out too many remedies as you could go into hypoglycaemia. Sleep well. It's all a matter of discipline.
