I was diagnosed hypothyroidism recently one month back. T3 normal and t4 normal. But tsh 15.20. Now I am using 50 MCG tab. Now my results was came 2.27 tsh. I don't want take life long medicine. What I do?

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Mr. Hypothyroidism is a thyroxine hormone deficiency disorder. Since this hormone is essential for routine functioning and development of brain, plus takes part in most vital metabolic reactions going on in the body, it has to be made available every day. So supplementing it daily is absolutely necessary. If one stops taking thyroxine then there can be serious consequences. Hence, treatment has to be continued for lifetime. There is no other option. If still you do not want to take it then it is entirely your choice. Thanks.

He is a Type 1 juvenile diabetic with uncontrolled disease. If he is already kept on Insulin his doses need to be re planned. He needs better management under the supervision of a diabetologist.

My mother age is 48 today suddenly she was complaining that she's feeling tired after having sugar salt water still she's feeling weak. Please help me what actually happened.

Diploma in Obstetrics & Gynaecology, MBBS
General Physician, Delhi
Get her investigated for basics. Sugar + salt water does not lead to weakness unless she is diabetic and has high bp. At 48 every woman should get checked for heart because due to time around menopause, there are hormonal changes within the body. Get an ecg, halter, blood tests for cbc, sugar, lipid profile, ultrasound of abdomen. Get back here with reports and her gyne history about periods.

Does fruit juice increase blood sugar? My father is 70 years old and he is a diabetic patient but he always insist for having a glass of fruit juice daily. Can I give him juice daily?

M.sc in dietetics and community nutrittion management
Dietitian/Nutritionist, Kolkata
The main ingredient of fruit is glucose and fructose. Fructose turns into fat and increase insulin resistance. Fruits juice contains much sugar and it absorb in blood easily and increase sugar level. Instead of this take whole fruits.

it condition of menopause stage...you can continue your tab. sevista..or you can remove it by surgery. for thyroid take life time medicines of thyroid. You can take 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. 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 may help, avoid alcohl if you take.

Hi thanks for your question, i would like to ask how was your sugar control, get an hbaic checked and a blood & pus culture done for the above and can start with appropriate antibiotics, if the sugar is not in control infections take long time to heal. Do not worry first get your blood sugar levels under control and rest will be fine.

Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Please get your hemoglobin checked, because it is possible you may have anaemia, which could be the reason for tiredness. If there is no anaemia detected, then please eat adequate diet with proteins like eggs and a lot green vegetables. You also must be aware that in hypothyroidism one should avoid soya containing products, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, mustard and coffee as these items affect treatment. Please inform the hb level.

Hi, since you are on treatment for hypothyroidism, see that tsh levels are maintained between. 1 to 2 milii units in the first trimester, late in the 2nd 0.3 to 3 milli units and 0.3 to3.5 in the third trimester. If your tsh is higher than 2 milli units now, increase the dose of thyroxine. In fact it is better to have tsh levels below 2 even just before conception. Maintaining above mentioned levels is essential for proper fetal development as well healthy out come of pregnancy. Please take care.
