I am a 24 year women and I am pregnent but duering blood test my thyroid level is high --> 9.45 (range 0.465-4.68). Is there any problem by this?

Critical Care Training, MD - Internal Medicine, MBBS
General Physician, Delhi
Hello, it is called subclinical hypothyroidism. And in pregnancy it needs to be treated. But recheck it (serum tsh & free t4) after 10-15 days with clia method. If it is more than 5 again, I will prescribe medicine for that. And dont worry, it is not any serious disease.

My aunt having diabites she is 40 years old and having one child she having diabitirs after when she gave birth a child is that child ok chid having any chansese of daibites.

MBBS
General Physician, Delhi
You did not tell me about the age of the child. Why I ask this is because children born of diabetic mothers have a higher chance of having congenital heart disease and various other congenital diseases. As far as your specific query is concerned, there again you data is incomplete. You did not tell whether your aunt has type 1 diabetes or type 2. However, generally diabetes has a strong genetic predisposition. If one or both of the parents suffer from diabetes, chance of the same in the child increases manifold. Thanks.

Sir, I am 64 years old a male. I am a diabetic for the last 15 years with fasting 150 and pp 250 and taking pills regularly. I have never controlled diet much. After a long time my sugar level is normal by changing medicines Amaryl 1 mg, Zitamet plus 20/1000, Piopod mf15 and Rozucor 5g but I have noticed that my sexual interest has totally gone. My question is it due to the side effect of the medicine or something else. Thank you sir.

You have been longstanding diabetic, as per your own words not well controlled, this could be a complication of diabetes rather than the medications that you are taking. More detailed information may be required from you before suggesting any medication, but surely your problem is quite commmon in diabetic males as more than 50% of them suffer from msd (male sexual dysfunction), but most of the times this is a manageable condition.

7 Skin Problems Diabetes Gives You

MD, MBBS
Dermatologist, Delhi
7 Skin Problems Diabetes Gives You

7 Diabetes Related Skin Problems

Diabetes is a metabolic disorder, chiefly caused by insulin fluctuation in the body. A study shows that, 1 out of 3 people suffering from diabetes are likely to develop a skin condition sooner or later; and in some cases, these skin problems serve as symptoms of diabetes. Although these skin problems can be cured easily if treated early, proper care must be administered at all times. Here are 7 skin conditions that affect diabetics:

1. Bacterial infection

Although anyone can get a bacterial infection, people suffering from diabetes are likelier to contract them. Usual bacterial skin problems that tend to trouble diabetics are boils, lumps near the eyelids, nail infections and carbuncles. Diabetics are also prone to infections deep in the skin and of the underlying tissues. The affected area is usually warm, red and swollen.

2. Fungal infections

People who have diabetes have an increased risk of contracting the fungal infection, especially the one known as candida Albicans. The fungus tends to create a red, itchy rash, which is surrounded by blisters and scales. These are usually found in warm places of the body like the armpits, or between the fingers of the hand or perhaps even the toes. Common fungal infections in diabetic people include athlete's foot, jock itch and ringworm.

3. Tingling and itching

Among the many causes of itching, diabetes is one. Yeast infection, dry skin and poor circulation are the primary causes of itching among patients of diabetes. Usually, the lower part of the leg tends to itch the most, if poor circulation is to be blamed.

4. Skin problems related to neuropathy

Diabetes can be the cause of nerve damage in some cases; and neuropathy is a common symptom of diabetes. This type of damage can cause a loss of sensation in a part of the body. On event of an injury, one may not be able to feel it. As a result, an open sore or wound, if left unattended, can develop into an infection.

5. Digital sclerosis

Digital sclerosis, a condition marked by tight, waxy, thick skin that develops on the back of the hand, is common among people who have type 1 diabetes. In this condition, the joints of the fingers get stiff and, thus, lose their mobility and elasticity. Skin of the toes, forehead and knees may also get affected.

6) Xerosis

Xerosis is another common skin condition that accompanies diabetes. In this condition, the skin becomes very dry and itchy.

7) Acanthosis nigricans

Acanthosis nigricans is the condition where diabetics get darkening of skin leading to skin tags around neck and armpits.

lybrate-user, If hypothyroidism is in control (TSH between 3 to 4 mU/L), then efforts to control weight can be successful. Only way to reduce weight is exercise and take a restricted diet. Your caloric intake has to be based on ideal body weight (60 kgs X 25 calories = 1500 cals, since you want to reduce weight, then the intake has to be cut by another 500 cals per day. So daily food intake should give only 1000 calories. Plus at least 45 minutes of walking also is required. Without this there is no other way to reduce weight. Thanks.

Can diabetes be cured? If not can it be controlled to a best possible level so as to avoid / minimize the long term complications of the disease? What are the ayurvedic remedies prescribed for the diabetes? It is said that most of the ayurvedic medicines for diabetes contain heavy metal bhasmas -oxides of lead / gold etc.& can damage the liver & kidneys if taken on long term basis-as they get deposited in the tissues. If you feel this is wrong could you give any evidence like research papers etc which say that they do not cause long term damage to the vital organs? What is the role of karela juice; neem patta juice & the methica powder in reduction of the blood sugar levels? What are their dosage & how long they should be taken to get reduction in blood sugar levels & to maintain them properly in tolerable limits. I have personally taken these products foe quite a long time & have not got any appreciable results-why? What is your opinion about BGR34-a product of CSIR & sponsored by govt of india a pure ayurvedic product in tablet form contain vijaysar; duru haridra (turmeric) & gud mar which is supposed to stimulate? Regenerate the beta cells of the pancreas.--they have not given me any results -why? Please note my fasting blood glucose levels are 140mg & post food-2hrs-about 164 to 178mg. I am a tea teetotaler; never took any alcoholic drinks, do not smoke or chew tobacco, not over weight for my height 63kgs / 168cms. Age about 62yrs. Do regular exercise; follow strict diat. Never eat sweets / rice ; active in life work about 8 hrs office work; never sleep in day time ; have about 7hrs sleep at night detected sugar about 6mths ago. I have tried vinegar (sirka) which is supposed to stimulate the pancreas for secreting insulin. None of the remedies are able to reduce my fasting blood sugar levels below 140mg. Could you suggest any ayurvedic medicines which will reduce & maintain the fasting sugar levels of about110 to 120mg.(pl note I am not taking any alopathic medicines for the diabetes) Please give your valuable suggestions & guidance. Withregards.

I am 42, and I am suffering from increased rate of uric acid in my foot, please tell me some precautions?

MBBS, MD - Internal Medicine
Internal Medicine Specialist, Faridabad
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.

I am 29 year old male and I suffer from uric acid problem. Can you tell me what is the right thing to do to avoid uric acid attacks?

MBBS, MD - Internal Medicine
Internal Medicine Specialist, Faridabad
Uric acid: normal values in the blood: men 3.5 to 7.0 mg/dl women 2.5 to 5.7 mg/dlwatch your weight. Try to lose weight slowly. Eat fresh fruit, vegetables, whole wheat products and some pulses (high in purine) every day. Enjoy low-fat milk and dairy products daily. Keep an eye on the purine content of food. Avoid offal, shellfish and crustaceans and tinned fish such as sardines in oil. Eat no more than 100g of meat, sausages, fish and poultry a day. Drink alcohol only occasionally, as it affects the elimination of uric acid. Eat low-fat food. The consumption of high-fat foods encourages weight gain. Drink at least two litres of low-calorie fluids a day. Recommended fluids are water, tea and fruit juice. To help with practical diet planning, it can help to gain advice from a qualified dietician. They will be able to clarify any questions you have and healthily and effectively reduce your values.

Mr. Lybrate-user, lemon water is fine, can be taken by a person with diabetes. Adding sugar free powder is also fine. But what is worrying is her blood glucose level of 300 mg, which is definitely very high. When diabetes is in control fbs should be closer to 100 mg, ppbs- 170 to 180 mg & hba1c% <7. So please see that her glucose levels are brought to necessary ones. Thanks.
