Mr. You have hyperthyroidism, hence the treatment has to go on for at least 12 to 18 months, then when levels become normal it may be stopped. Some times it may not return to normal then other measures may be looked at. At present please continue the therapy. If you any troublesome symptoms please do inform.

About Thyroid gland

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
About Thyroid gland
Low functioning thyroid is a new epidemic of the society affecting more than 3% of people. If thyroid function is low, it causes weight gain, loss of energy, cold intolerance and menstrual irregularities in women.
All people who are aged 50 and above should have their thyroid profile (TSH test) done to look for thyroid deficiency.
In younger people, or in cases of infertility, menstrual irregularity, pregnancy, weight gain, thyroid deficiency should be looked for.
Iodized salt should be used to prevent thyroid deficiency.
Non–iodized salt is only used in two conditions: firstly in patient with thyroid inflammation and secondly, while doing Jalneti in naturopathy, a yoga–related nasal wash technique.
In pregnancy, even mild thyroid deficiency can affect the growth of fetus hence dose requirement of thyroid medicine is much higher in pregnancy than in non–pregnancy.
In the elderly, the dose of thyroid medicine to be started is always low as compared to one in the adults.
If thyroid deficiency is untreated, osteoporosis (thickening of bone) and/or atrial fibrillation (irregular and fast heart rate) may result. Osteoporosis can cause recurrent fractures and atrial fibrillation may cause brain paralysis.
In Allopathic medicine, thyroid deficiency is treated by synthetic T4 hormone replacement.
In Ayurveda, thyroid stimulant drugs are available but they are effective only if some amount of thyroid gland is available.
As per Ayurveda, eating soya and drinking water from copper vessel is good for thyroid.

Mr. lybrate-user, Microalbuminuria is passing of small molecules of albumin through urine. It increases when kidney function is affected. This happens in diabetes. Diabetes damages the filtering membrane of the glomerulous. If blood glucose is not well controlled this damage occurs fairly rapidly. Since you no such problem now. The only precaution required is strict blood glucose control. Nothing else is needed. Thanks.

Hello lybrate-user diabetic patients can eat fish. How much.?? Quantity depends upon your body requirements. Body requirements can be measured by: ideal body weight* 30/40/50 30 - sedentary lifestyle 40 - moderate lifestyle 50 - active lifestyle where as ideal bodyweight can be calculated by - for female - 21 *(height in metre square) for male - 23*(height in metre square) now 1) fish cutlets - I cutlet - 75 calorie 2) fish cultlet in garlic butter - I serving - 284.7 calorie 3) fish fenugreek curry - I serving - 196 calorie 4) fish and green mango curry - 1 serving - 388 calorie 5) fish ambotik - 1 serving -290 calorie 6) pomfret fried (100gms) - I serving - 205 calorie. I think I have solved your query Dr. Anup singh dwarka delhi.

Mr. lybrate-user, From the blood glucose levels mentioned it is clear that control is too bad. There needs to be a relook at the Insulin type and dosage being given. Plus one has to also look at the diet and exercise routine. There is need for continuous monitoring for a few weeks to stabilise the glucose levels. There is need for constant communication between your physician and the patient. There has to be a daily blood glucose check up and insulin dose alteration etc. Thanks.

Hello Madam, Generalised body pains can be due to many reasons- like Anemia, low calcium and Vitamin D levels, hypothyroidism, lack of proper nutrition in your diet leading to multivitamin deficiency etc. You can get a complete blood picture, calcium and vitamin D levels, TSH levels checked and consult a general physician. Eat a proper well balanced and healthy diet. You could take a multi vitamin tablet every day too. I hope this helps you Thank you.

Please start medication for thyroid depending on the report. Thyroid disorder does have an impact on pregnancy. Not able to conceive, or abortion and various problems during pregnancy and poor mental development of the baby. So consult with the gynecologist.

Yes, definitely. Swimming and other outdoor activities like brisk walking or playing tennis/badminton can help in improving insulin sensitivity. One of the most powerful antidotes for insulin resistance is exercise. Regular exercise paired with healthful eating can quickly improve insulin sensitivity. This change causes a host of health benefits, from lowering body weight, blood sugar and blood pressure to improving lipids. Remember: walking for just 30 minutes most days is what's recommended and the easiest exercise for most people to fit in.

Mr. Lybrate-user, frequent passing of urine can be a symptom of diabetes. This happens when blood glucose goes beyond 180 mg, glucose comes in to urine, once in urine it draws more water and bladder fills more often and frequency increases. But increased urine frequency can occur even if there is urinary tract infection. Best is to get a blood glucose test done both fasting and after food. If fasting >126 and pp >200 mg, then diabetes is confirmed.

Diabetes - The rising epidemic

MBBS, DNB, Diploma Dyslipidemia, CCEBDM, CCMTD
General Physician, Gurgaon
Diabetes - The rising epidemic

India is now in the midst of a diabetes epidemic, with an adult prevalence rate of nine per cent and almost 69 million people living with diabetes. In another 15 years, the figure is expected to rise to 101 million. In all this, more than 90 percent of cases are lifestyle-induced.

Individuals with diabetes do not have any symptoms for long periods of time and may have complications at the time of diagnosis. Common examples such as retinopathy (blindness), nephropathy (kidney disease), neuropathy (nerve damage) and diabetic foot (gangrene and amputations in extreme cases) affect a large proportion of individuals with diabetes. Approximately a third of those with diabetes are known to develop retinopathy. Diabetes is also known to increase the risk of cardiovascular diseases (heart attack and stroke); nearly half of those with diabetes die of heart attack.

A bad lifestyle is what propels this epidemic while an inadequate response from the health system results in debilitating complications. The staggering increase in cases of diabetics and prediabetics has been attributed to lifestyle changes as a result of rapid and unplanned urbanisation, an ageing population, a sedentary lifestyle and increasing consumption of unhealthy food, especially modern processed foods. Lack of opportunistic screening delays diagnosis while poor access to care and medicines, information asymmetry between doctors and patients, and a paucity of well-trained human resource, impede evidence-based management of diabetes.

Health promotion strategies

Prevention remains central in halting the current pace of the diabetes epidemic. Our focus should be on both individual and policy-level interventions. Health promotion strategies should be aimed at maintaining normal body weight by improving physical activity and following a balanced and healthy diet. Evidence from the [INTERNATIONAL] Diabetes Prevention Program (DPP) shows that small reductions in weight by the moderate-intensity activity of at least 150 minutes per week and reduced fat consumption on most days prevented progression to diabetes by 58 percent among those with prediabetes.

In general, brisk walking for at least 30 minutes a day and following a healthy diet every day which has at least 3-5 servings of locally available and inexpensive fruits and vegetables, and less refined sugar and saturated fat can prevent or postpone the occurrence of diabetes. Doing yoga may also help prevent diabetes; in individuals with diabetes, it may even help them have better control of blood sugar. In addition, every adult above 30 years should be screened for diabetes and hypertension during a planned or unplanned visit to a physician or hospital.

Policy measures also call for reinforcement of health systems. Higher taxation on sugar-sweetened beverages and high-fat junk foods and planning urban infrastructure to promote physical activity have become all the more imperative now.

Diabetes is no longer a disease predominantly affecting the rich and is fast spreading to rural communities. The poor are even more vulnerable. Thus, India has a population where the number of people with diabetes has increased substantially over time and is set to continuously grow; a large number of people disabled by complications, and an equivalent number who are unaware of the condition.

Early diagnosis and prevention is the key to controlling the disease and minimise the risk of disability. In this, we need a multi-pronged approach that involves collaboration among national leaders, clinicians, public health researchers and allied health professionals.
