Lybrate-user ji, Thanks for the query Advanced Thyroid profile (T3, T4, TSH, FT3, FT4, AMA) A thyroid profile is a group of tests that are often ordered together to help evaluate thyroid gland function and to help diagnose thyroid disorders. It is better to go before 10 am. No need to go on empty stomach. The test is done to find out all the hormonal levels plus Antimicrosomal antibodies. Thanks.

YOur pancreas is getting weaker which is the cause of sugar. Can you send me your FBS, 2Hr PPBS & HbA1C to me privatelyDiabetes affects all organs in the body ? Eyes, kidneys, nerves, reproductive system all are affected, In fact, from toe to hair. For diabetic control, patient and doctor should be n constant touch 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 & life style. For sugar control there is the need for regular advice and follow up. Just one time consultation or advice is not enough to guide a diabetic in scientifically & medically correct manner. For giving you regular follow up you ask me privately with all details like your daily eating pattern and medicines you take. I assure you a proper guidance.

How can I control the diabetes of my mother, her age is 48, please suggest me fastly, or also to control the knee pain.
For diabetes follow a diet low in carbohydrate, low in fat and high in fibre. Avoid bakery products. Avoid too much rice and potato. Avoid fried stuff. Avoid chocolate, cakes, ice cream, soft drinks and fruit juices. Eat lots of vegetables. Walk for at least 30 minutes a day for 5 days in a week. Medicine will depend upon your blood sugar report. For knee pain consult an orthopaedician.

(1. Preventive treatment for thyroid:-a healthy diet, exercise, proper nutrition, and stress reduction can all minimize the chance of developing thyroid disease. (2). Preventivet treatment for diabetes:- 30 grams of protein at breakfast may help reduce glucose spikes, among type-2 diabetic adults. Olive oil may protect against diabetes (3). Preventive treatment for hypertension:-do exercise, loose weight, reduced salt intake, stop drinking alcohol, reduced stress, take nutrients, potassium, calcium, magnesium, fish oil, garlic. (4). Preventive treatment for pancreatitis;- you cannot completely prevent pancreatitis caused by gallstones. But you may be able to reduce your risk of forming gallstones by staying at a healthy weight with a balanced diet and regular exercise. For more information, see the topic gallstones. You can reduce your chance of having pancreatitis by not drinking alcohol excessively. The amount of alcohol needed to cause pancreatitis varies from one person to another. Generally, moderate consumption is considered no more than 2 alcoholic beverages a day for men and 1 a day for women and older people. Smoking may increase your chance of having pancreatitis.

Dear , you are anxious. Anxiety disorders are a category of mental disorders characterized by feelings of anxiety and fear, where anxiety is a worry about future events and fear is a reaction to current events. These feelings may cause physical symptoms, such as a racing heart and shakiness. There are a number of anxiety disorders: including generalized anxiety disorder, a specific phobia, social anxiety disorder, separation anxiety disorder, agoraphobia, and panic disorder among others. While each has its own characteristics and symptoms, they all include symptoms of anxiety. I need to know more about your anxiety so that I will be able to diagnose it properly and provide you tips to overcome and manage your anxiety. Take care.

lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. I have seen the details, following are my observations: 1)With a BMI of 39.6 kgs/M2 (normal <23 kgs/ M2), you are morbidly obese. This is the main reason for getting diabetes and not being able to control effectively. 2) There is no mention of actual fasting, PP glucose levels and HbA1c% it is not possible to talk about proper control of the condition. 3) There is no mention of dosage of drugs being taken, further no mention of extent of daily exercise, dietary pattern 4) No mention of lipid profile too. My suggestion is please come back with all the necessary details mentioned above, preferably in a private (paid consultation) conversation then I will be able to guide and prescibe if there is a need Please understand almost all the medicines have excellent action, however, there may be a proper drug selection required some times. Hence if interested do come back as mentioned earlier. Thanks.

I had pain in my heel of right foot. Mostly after inactivity or after waking up. Pain used to go down with activity and some times after passing urine. Got my uric acid test done it was ok. This occuted an year ago as well but got ok after I changed my shoe. This time also it has started after I bought a new shoe. I shall change my shoe. But does it mean some other problem. Or is it only shoe.

8 months back my tsh was 7.5 and I was put on thyrox 25 mcg. Now the tsh has shot up to 17.2 and I'm currently taking thyrox 50 mcg. I have been having bradykinesia symptoms for the past 6 months and my doc suspects that it could be PD and put me on rasalect1 mg one per day. I have been given to understand that bradykinesia is a symptom of hypothyroid as well. How do I know whether my bradykinesia symptoms are because of PD or hypothyroid?

Dear user with the limited amount of information available we can very well understand your concern for hypothyroidism and parkinsons disease. Be assured bradykinesia is not a symptom of hypothyroidism rather it causes bradycardia which is slowing of heart rate. Will suggest to get your tsh rechecked within 6 weeks so that if dose modification is needed it can be done. Hope that solves your query. Anything more then feel free to ask.
