Dear user, just because you are feeling like to urinate frequently, doesn't means you are diabetic. Along with this if do you have some other symptoms like, weight loss, frequent hunger or thrust, any weakness or anything. If you have all this or you have family history of diabetes then better just check one your blood sugar.

lybrate-user, Since no TSH value is mentioned, I have no way to comment or suggest change in dosage. Hypothyroidism is thyroxine deficiency disorder, so only option is to take thyroxine supplement on daily basis. Taking extra iodine is not going to help as your thyroid gland itself is unable to synthesise the hormone. Thanks.

Mr. Lybrate-user, your testosterone value is in normal range. There is no reason to take that hormone. Lack libido can be seen in hypothyroidism. It is important to have tsh values around 3 to 4 milli units/l, then only it is considered under good control and most of the symptoms improve. Unnecessarily using testosterone is an invitation for its side effects, which include: acne, oily skin, mild fluid retention, stimulation of prostate tissue, increased urination, decreased stream, increased risk of developing prostate cancer, breast enlargement and increased blood clots. So my suggestion is check tsh and try bring it to above mentioned range. Thanks for the question.

Know About Thyroid Disease, Foods and Drinks

Know About Thyroid Disease, Foods and Drinks

If you have thyroid disease -- whether you are hypothyroid (underactive thyroid) or hyperthyroid (overactive thyroid), whether you hashimoto's, graves' disease, or other conditions, what you eat can have an impact on your health. Here are ten things to know about thyroid conditions and your diet, food and beverages, and their interaction with your health and medications.

  • Goitrogens are substances -- occurring naturally in certain foods -- that can cause your thyroid gland to enlarge. The main goitrogenic foods are cruciferous vegetables like broccoli, cauliflower, kale, and cabbage, among others, as well as soy foods. Goitrogenic foods can also function like an antithyroid drug and actually slow down the thyroid and make it underactive (hypothyroidism.)
  • Coconut oil recommended for thyroid patients, and while it can be a healthful option, it's not a cure
  • One should not take coffee until an hour after you've taken your thyroid hormone replacement medication. Otherwise, the coffee can affect absorption, and make your thyroid medication less effective.
  • Iodized salt in some areas of the world, iodized salt is an essential way to prevent iodine deficiency, cretinism and retardation due to iodine deficiency in pregnant women.
  • Many thyroid patients struggle with constipation, and extra weight. One of the key tactics that can help is increasing fiber intake, particularly from foods.
  • One of the most powerful things thyroid patients can do to help their health and metabolism is to drink enough water. Water helps your metabolism function more efficiently, and can help reduce your appetite, get rid of water retention and bloating, improve your digestion and elimination, and combat constipation.

Send your details like weight. Height in centi meters and bllod pressure. Do every 3 months hba1c test for sugar. If it tells you that sugar is not in control then we can add few herbs in your previous medicine. In diabetes uncontrolled sugar is not good for your health. So keep in touch take care n also light exercise you can do.

wat you have is impaired glucose tolerance. if you control your diet by avoiding sugary items, canned foods, excess salt in diet you can maintain balanced blood sugar levels. You need to cut down on carbohydrates, include soups, sprouts, oats, dryfruits and high fibre diet. Go for regular walk, start exercises, yoga, meditation, drink 2-3 litres water per day. Check your blood sugar levels regularly to keep a watch.

Please check: 1) HbA1c 2) Serum insulin level (both fasting and PP) 3) OGTT (5samples) Above test will tell you whether you are diabetic or pre diabetic or normal. Slow healing may be due to either diabetes or any other causes which lower immunity.

Mr. Lybrate-user, you having obesity, grade 2, with 35.11 kgs/m2 bmi. This very high and can be troublesome. It is better to get tsh levels checked (thyroid assay), that will help in finding out if there is hypothyroidism. If uncontrolled hypothyroidism is present then weight gain is very common. It is better if you join a gym and do exercise under guidance, that will help. Plus a proper dietary intake has to be planned, giving calories based on your ideal body weight and extent of daily exercise. So first get thyroid testing done. Thanks for the question.

My dad has diabetes. Can he use fenfuro capsules. I read a lot in internet but not sure. Please suggest.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
My dad has diabetes.  Can he use fenfuro capsules. I read a lot in internet but not sure. Please suggest.
Without other medicines diabetes cannot be controlled with Fenfuro .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 should be under proper guidance for regular follow up and advice. It is not as easy 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 & lifestyle.
