I have a high Tsh level with normal T3 and t4 levels. 3 tests at 3 month intervals gave 19.32, 22.03, 11.57. The doctor suggested me to use thyronorm 25mg tabs. Do I need to use these for life long or are these ranges normal, for past 1 years I have gained around 8 kgs of weight. Is this related to my thyroid problem.

Please give current tsh and t3, t4 levels. If you have gained weight, means there is presence of hypothyroidism. To confirm whether there is hypothyroidism or not please give current test results.

How to prevent and decrease acids in stomach? And How to prevent Acidic nature in blood for diabetics?

How to prevent and decrease acids in stomach? And How to prevent Acidic nature in blood for diabetics?
Our stomach itself produces HCl which helps in digestion and breaking of food. But when too much of acid is produced then it creates problems. Acid increases due to acidic foods, alcohol, dehydration, stress. You can have cold milk, buttermilk, coconut water or some herbs such as ajwain, jeera, tulsi or pudina. You can have antacid tablets, milk of magnesia, eno. Severe acidity may lead to ulcers also. To decrease acid drink a glass of water first thing in the morning. Eat lots of non-citrus fruits such as apple, banana, water melon and fresh vegetables such as beans, legumes. Include yogurt in your diet. Avoid spicy and oily foods.

Vitamin b will definitely help in food neuropathy. Are you a member of herbal life? with diabetes you have to take more fibre, protein, variety of veg, 3-4 fruit servings in a day but in moderate amounts because of diabetes, very sweet fruits like banana, mango, sitaphal, cheeku etc are restricted. Eat dry fruits especially wall nuts & flex seeds for omega 3 & sprouts for fibre etc. In diabetes there are multiple nutrient deficiencies and food cravings. To correct them and feel better, you must take some dietary supplements as diabetic people have more nutritional needs. For in-depth understanding, planning optimum diet to deal with deficiencies & other concerns with weight gain

Hi, consumption of sugar depends upon the values of blood sugar a person if having. If your mother has slightly increased blood sugar then she can have little bit of normal sugar intake, but if she is suffering from high blood sugar then need to cut down sugar intake totally. You can consult a nutritionist for that.

Dear, first of all I would like to assure and inform you that" erectile dysfunction" is" very common" and" manageable" issue. Due to lack of proper guidance and ignorance, this issue does not get resolved easily. It is very easily treated by following measures: 1). Proper counselling 2). Exercises / techniques 3). Ayurvedic medicines (there are not much treatment options for" erectile dysfunction" in modern system).

MBBS, DGO (cal)
General Physician,
When your Diabetologist has decided you need Insulin then it is right. Insulin help to prevent complications of diabetes. There is no better or bad medicine. Matter is what is required and giving you good result that is your medicine. Of course that should not cause damage to your health - your consultant definitely knows that. Trust him.

What is the rightway to take hypothyroid medicine?

Ayurveda,
What is the rightway to take hypothyroid medicine?
Hello, we have self made specialised medicine prepared for complete management of thyroid. It includes correction of weight, stopping hair fall and alleviating other symptoms such as weakness, lethargy, increased sleep, infertility etc. This is how this treatment minimizes dependence on artificial hormones and stimulates thyroid gland to produce it's own natural hormone. At the same time, this treatment increases metabolic rate thereby helping maintain good weight over long term.

you are having pcod that is not a disease but a change in the body. you look unmarried. you have to think of cutting down your weight. ideally the problem in you is anovulation. unless you ovulate regular your periods wont come. but the treatment is ideally started after you get married as you dont need ovulation now. even if you take tablets now your periods would come regularly till you are on the tabs but once you stop them the periods would return back to the what they were before. so be patient and dont bother about your periods

I am suffering from diabetes. I want to know the solution to remedy diabetes.

M.Sc - Dietitics / Nutrition
Dietitian/Nutritionist,
Eat a lot of non-starchy vegetables, beans, and fruits such as apples, pears, peaches, and berries. Eat grains in the least-processed state possible: “unbroken,” such as whole-kernel bread, brown rice, and whole barley, millet, and wheat berries Limit white potatoes and refined grain products such as white breads and white pasta to small side dishes. Limit concentrated sweets—including high-calorie foods with a low glycemic index, such as ice cream—to occasional treats. Eliminate sugar-sweetened drinks. Eat a healthful type of protein at most meals, such as beans, fish, or skinless chicken. Choose foods with healthful fats, such as olive oil, nuts (almonds, walnuts, pecans), and avocados. Have three meals and one or two snacks each day, and don’t skip breakfast. Eat slowly and stop when full. exercise for 45 min

As hba1c is on higher side, it's important to be particular about food choices & timings. Properly follow the do's and don't of a diabetic diet. Avoid sweets & sweetened beverages from diet. Avoid high starchy foods and sweetened fruits & vegetables from diet such as rice, bananas, chickoo, grapes, mango, litchi, potatoes. Include more fiber such as dalia, & whole pulses in diet as they have low glycemic index and helps to control blood glucose levels.

A high uric acid level can be caused when your body either produces too much uric acid or your kidneys don't eliminate uric acid rapidly enough. A high uric acid level may cause increasingly frequent attacks of gout, or it may never cause problems. A high uric acid level may also cause some people to develop kidney stones or kidney failure. And some people with a high uric acid level also develop high blood pressure, heart disease or chronic kidney disease, but it's often unclear whether this is a direct cause or merely an early warning sign of these conditions. Factors that may cause a high uric acid level in your blood include: Diuretic medications (water pills),Drinking too much alcohol,Genetics (inherited tendencies),hypothyroidism (underactive thyroid),Immune-suppressing drugs,Niacin, or vitamin B-3, obesity,psoriasis, Purine-rich diet — organ meat, game meat, anchovies, herring, gravy, dried beans, driedpeas, mushrooms and other foods Renal insufficiency — inability of the kidneys to filter waste Tumor lysis syndrome — a rapid release of cells into the blood caused by certain cancers or by chemotherapy for those cancers,Also, you may be monitored for high uric acid levels when undergoing chemotherapy or radiation treatment for cancer. Avoid protein diets, avoid more milk products. bad habits , fast food/fat/oily,salty foods. Coffee, smoking, alcohol intake. Non-veg., take whole grain,oats,green veg.,plenty of water in day time, 1 glass of water at night before bed. Take tab. Zyloric 100 mg once a day. Tab. Ulracet sos for pain in joints.

Dear hyder, hypothyroidism is of many types. Autoimmune hypothyroidism requires permanent replacement but to prove we've to check for thyroid antibodies. At times the condition if mild and drug induced itcan reverse. But keep checking tsh regularly to diagnose recurrence.
