Hello, BP 140 / 60 is fairly good at the age 75 years, so continue the same medication. Reducing will increase the BP. Blood glucose control is considered good when FBS is clser to 100 mg, PP 170 to 180 mg and HbA1c% <7 at your age. (HbA1c% can be aloowed up to 7.5%). Thanks.

You should avoid soy beans, soy containing products, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, broccoli, radish, peanuts, mustard and coffee. Also consume more of green leafy vegetables salads and fruits. Should use whole grain flour for chapati and roti. These precautions in addition to thyroxine in adequate dose will help in controlling tsh level in turn hypothyroidism">dipaliji, by mentioning" thyroid level" are you talking about high tsh levels? because there is nothing like thyroid levels.

Lybrate-user, yes you are nearing grade 1 obesity with a bmi of 29.29 kgs/m2. Your ideal body weight should be 60 kgs. Since you have hypothyroidism, it is essential to control that. Unless that is done weight reduction will not occur. Well controlled hypothyroidism will have a tsh level between 3 to 4 mu/l. Thanks.

Mr. lybrate-user, Diabetes mellitus if T2, then depending upon the severity of insulin deficiency or resistance, treatment can be started either with oral anti-diabetic drugs or Insulin injections or both. Plus regular exercise and diet control are also equally important. As for hernia (if it is inguinal) depending upon the severity of the situation, most often surgery is the option. Thanks.

5 Common Signs of Diabetes That Often Go Unnoticed

5 Common Signs of Diabetes That Often Go Unnoticed

At present 3 out of the 5 people are suffering from diabetes and it is the 7th leading cause of death worldwide. Moreover, it is no more restricted just to adults and affects children as well. Diabetes is a metabolic disease resulting in increase in the level of glucose in the body. Glucose is a source of energy for the cells making up the muscles and other tissues in the body. But if the level of glucose goes up, it shows the sign of danger. Diabetes is of 2 types: 

  1. Type 1: body fails to produce insulin.
  2. Type 2: Body fails to produce enough insulin which is required by the body.

There are no definite signs of diabetes. It simply varies from person to person. In many of the cases it goes unnoticed. Such signs are as follows:

  1. Sudden weight loss: You might experience a sudden weight loss of 5 to10 kgs within a month. This happens when sugar metabolism ceases very quickly.  Insufficient insulin prevents the body from taking in glucose in the body cells from the blood to use as energy. In such a scenario the body starts burning fat and muscle for energy. This results in weight loss.
  2. Intense hunger: The cells in your body might not get enough energy either due to absence or improper functioning of insulin in your blood. This makes you hungry quite often.
  3. Excessive urination and thirst: Due to diabetes, the glucose level in the body goes up. The kidneys are overloaded with the burden of working overtime for filtering and absorbing the excess glucose in your body. The excess sugar, which the kidney cannot store is excreted out of your body. This makes you urinate frequently.  Due to frequent urination the body gets dehydrated which makes you feel thirsty more often.
  4. Blurred vision: Due to the high level of glucose in your body tissues gets pulled away from the lens of the eyes. This results in vision issues. If not treated on time, it may even lead to blindness.
  5. Increased fatigue: The cells in your body might not get enough energy either due to absence or improper functioning of insulin in your blood. This makes you restless more often and you may even feel too weak to do your regular activities.

If you notice any of these signs, get the level of sugar in your checked and take the required remedies. It is good to get it treated as early as possible rather than facing immense trouble in future.

What are main problem due to which thyroid occur to women in early age like In 16-17 age?
IN HYPOTHYROIDISM:--- Deficiency of thyroxine hormone leading to sluggishness, tired feeling, weight increase, slow heart beats, intolerance to cold, swelling of legs, feet and face, difficulty in concentrating and at times in speech. Treatment for hypothyroidism is giving ' THYROXINE ' tablets. And dose are according to level of thyroid for life time. Avoid iron medicines. Avoid bad habits . Avoid stress. Some Relax during work.go walk daily.avoid oily foods,junk foods. Do Tests T3,T4,TSH EVERY 3 TO 6 MONTHS. Take plenty of water, high-carbohydrate foods such as potatoes, rice, pasta and bread. Nutrient-rich foods that improve your health may also benefit your thyroid gland, antioxidant-rich fruits and vegetables more plenty of water: Blueberries, tomatoes, bell peppers, and other foods rich in antioxidants can improve overall health and benefit the thyroid gland. Eating foods high in B vitamins, like whole grains, may also help. flax oil, Selenium: Tiny amounts of selenium are needed for enzymes that make thyroid hormones to work properly. Eating selenium-rich foods, such as sunflower seeds or Brazil nuts, can be beneficial. Tyrosine: This amino acid is used by the thyroid gland to produce T3 and T4. Taking a supplement can help,

Mr. Lybrate-user, if hypothyroidism is in control, then tsh should be 3 to 4 mu/l, at that level all the symptoms are well in check. So please look at tsh if not as desired then dose of thyroxine may have to be increased. Further, after 6 weeks check tsh again to see if it has returned to as mentioned above. Uncontrolled hypothyroidism can affect memory. As regards itching in ear you may have to consult an ent specialist and for cough, meet your local gp. Thanks.

Mr. Lybrate-user, if blood sugar level is not well controlled, then it causes damage to small blood vessels, which affects multiple organs including penile muscles leading to erectile dysfunction, so it is essential to control diabetes effectively with fasting sugar level closer to 100 mg and pp 150 to 160 mg and hba1c% < 7. Thanks for the question.
