Doctor, am suffering from thyroid for the past six years. Now am taking tablet thyronorm 75 mcg for the past more than one year and I test thyroid every six months. This Sunday I tested my thyroid at Lister Lab and the results are as below: T3-2.15,T4-0.91,TSH-7.24. TSH obviously has gone up. Kindly advice if I need to change my medication. Thanks and regards Meenu Krishna.

CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology, MBBS
Endocrinologist,
To keep hypothyroidism in check, TSH should be maintained between 3 to 4 mU/L. Then all the symptoms are also in control. Since TSH level is 7.24 mU/L, there is a need to increase the dosage of thyroxine to at least 87.5 mcg, then check TSH after 6 weeks, to see if desired levels are achieved, if not then dose may have to be increased to 100 mcg. Thanks.

What should be the diet in thyroid disorders?

MD - Internal Medicine, MBBS
Endocrinologist,
Goitrogens are naturally occurring substances in certain foods that interfere with the production of thyroid hormones (the hormones that people with hypothyroidism lack). They include some of the most commonly consumed foods of the health-conscious community: broccoli, cauliflower, kale, spinach, radishes, soybeans, peanuts, pine nuts, peaches and millet. The good news is that many health professionals believe that cooking may inactivate goitrogens. Although these foods provide many benefits for healthy people, goitrogenic potential should be considered by at-risk groups: people who have a family history of hypothyroidism, those who already have symptoms, and women approaching menopause. Some goitrogens, such as soy isoflavones, pose a particular quandary for menopausal women—they can reduce certain menopausal symptoms, such as hot flashes, but are thought to aggravate hypothyroidism. Hypothyroidism could explain menopausal symptoms such as depression, weight gain, and lethargy. People with deficient thyroid function often feel cold, which might help differentiate the two conditions. It is unknown whether other phytoestrogenic foods are thought to affect thyroid functioning. While avoiding goitrogens may mitigate symptoms of hypothyroidism, many other dietary and nondietary factors are also involved. At least a dozen vitamins and minerals are recommended for preventing low thyroid function—iodine, an essential trace element present in the thyroid gland, being the most widely recognized. Iodized table salt generally contributes enough iodine to the American diet to prevent goiter, a swelling of the thyroid gland visible around the Adam’s apple and associated with hypothyroidism; however, it may not be enough to counter other effects of low thyroid function. Iodine may be available in land-grown foods, but because the amount varies considerably depending on the minerals in the soil, seafood is a more reliable source. A significant amount of iodine is found in kelp, but excessive amounts (more than 600 mcg per day for prolonged periods) may actually trigger hypothyroidism, so moderation is the key.

How does thyroid effect pregnancy?

Diploma in Diabetology, Master of Hospital Administration, MBBS
General Physician,
How does thyroid effect pregnancy?
Before birth a baby is entirely dependent on the mother for thyroid hormone until the baby's own thyroid gland can start to function. This usually does not occur until about 12 weeks of gestation (the end of the first trimester of pregnancy). Thus, hypothyroidism of the mother may play a role early on, before many women realize they are pregnant! in fact, the babies of mothers who were hypothyroid in the first part of pregnancy, then adequately treated, exhibited slower motor development than the babies of normal mothers. However, during the later part of pregnancy, hypothyroidism in the mother can also have adverse effects on the baby.These children are more likely to have intellectual impairment.

Hello doctor, what are the symptoms of blood pressure and diabetes. What is the solution on it?

Hello doctor, what are the symptoms of blood pressure and diabetes. What is the solution on it?
Dear Increased urination, hunger, n thirst are signature symptoms of diabetes. Eating right is vital if you?re trying to prevent or control diabetes. While exercise is also important, what you eat has the biggest impact when it comes to weight loss. But what does eating right for diabetes mean? You may be surprised to hear that your nutritional needs are virtually the same everyone else: no special foods or complicated diets are necessary. A diabetes diet is simply a healthy eating plan that is high in nutrients, low in fat and added sugar, and moderate in calories. It is a healthy diet for anyone! The only difference is that you need to pay more attention to some of your food choices?most notably the carbohydrates you eat.

I have sugar in borderline how to prevent without tablets
My gums are very weak what I should do.
If blood sugar levels fasting is between 108 to 125 mg and pp 141 to 199 mg /100 ml, is considered as pre diabetes, or impaired glucose tolerance (igt). At this level diabetes can be prevented by restricted diet, exercise and maintaining normal weight. For gums to become healthy, regular massaging of gums and taking vitamin supplements and maintaining oral hygiene is very important.

Mr. lybrate-user, The details given clearly show that diabetes is totally uncontrolled, plus there is dyslipidemia. If you are already not on any treatment then appropriate treatment has to be initiated or present treatment needs to be upgraded. As regards the treatment for diabetes you will have to start immediate treatment with modern medicine drugs. Plus you will have take a restricted diet and exercise daily for at least 1 hour to achieve good glucose control. You have to avoid sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries and bakery items, sweetened aerated drinks. Refrain from alcohol and smoking. In this communication we are supposed to give only general guidelines, no drugs can be prescribed. Thanks.

Hello, Sarcoidosis is an inflammatory disease. No specific cause is identified, hence treatment is also mostly symptomatic. In most patients it subsides on its own. In few treatment is needed. Usually steroids are a mainstay of the treatment. There is no special diet, however, fruits, green vegetables etc should be included in the diet. Thanks.
