Good Morning Doctor,

Mr. G lybrate-user, since she has hypothyroidism, thyroxine supplementation has to continue for life time. Slightly elevated t4 is fine. Main parameter for control of hypothyroidism is tsh level. This has to be between 3 to 4 milli units / ml. When on treatment. However, during pregnancy (if hypothyroid patient wants to have a child,) recommended tsh levels are between 2 to 2.4 milli units. In such a situation there may be a need to increase the does of thyroxine at that time. Some times if tsh levels show any upward level then there may be a need to increase. There are patients taking dose up to 200 mcg per day.

Control of Diabetes is a is therapy done by a combined and serious team consisting of The Patient and the physician. Physician advises. Unless the recipient, I mean the patient seriously asks Physician is also can not give you the fullest. Its a psychological bond which is above all a professional advice only. Your uncontrolled diabetes may due to either your non compliance to the advice of physician or incompetent advice of the physician. I have no reason to believe the second part of the statement. I may believe at this juncture to stick to the following part and retest your BS fter 15 days. If you see any improvement, go back to your doctor and listen list him and follow his advice. If he is not giving your satisfactory attention, I know you know what to do. A patent always choose he physician not the physician choose his patient. He may love him with empathy. 1) Brisk Walking 5 Km daily - whether over weight or not, of course if it is not contraindicated by your treating physician. 2) Keep your Body Mass Index within 24 Kg / Meter Square of your body surface area, that is your healthy weight - by exercise and dietary management. 3) Diets - STOP the following - Sweet, Sugar, Potato, Fried substances, Starchy foods, Sweet drinks, Canned juices, Ice creams, Processed juice of any type.

What precautions should be adopted for diabetes curing?
Unless your lifestyle is ideal with discipline and no stress you cannot cure diabetes but you can definitely maintain it. For a diabetic it is best advised to have a diet planned as per the sugar levels, lifestyle and history. Though you can follow some guidelines - have small frequent meals. Do not fast for long hours. Avoid a very heavy meal at one time. Avoid fruit juices, aerated drinks or sugarcane juice, honey, jaggery or sugar. Avoid junk foods. Exercise and stay active. Do not attempt to try out too many remedies as you could go into hypoglycaemia. Sleep well. It's all a matter of discipline.

In diabetes frozen shoulder as well as erectile dysfunction occur as a complication of the disease. First thing is you have to achieve a stricter control of blood sugar to prevent complications. For frozen shoulder please consult a physiotherapist and follow the instructions. For erectile dysfunction if you not yet taken tab viagra please try 50 mg about 1 h before intended contact. It should help.

Yes, you may have fresh, home-made pomegranate juice without adding any sugar. It will not raise your blood sugar level too much. But whether that alone will improve your sperm count, I don't know. By the way, what is the cause for your" low sperm count" at 27 years age?

All vegetables are a good source of nutrients. You can eat plenty of vegetables as they are low in calories. Avoid fruits which are very sweet in taste (also fruit juices). Your total calories depends on your work and activity level. Having unpolished pulses and multigrains is a better option. Avoid refined foods in your daily diet. Drink enough water to maintain hydration. In order to revive health only eating right is not enough, you should exercise daily if possible. Keeping stress away is equally important. Taking your medicines on time and checking your blood sugar levels regularly is the right approach.

Lybrate-userji, t2 diabetes does run in families, passes on to children from parents. So there is a real possibility of you getting it too. However, one good thing about t2 dm is that it is a preventable disease. By that it means that if one maintains a healthy modifies lifestyle, one can remain free from it or postpone it for a number of years. Healthy lifestyle means - exercise regularly, for at least 1 hour a day, take a balanced diet, avoid excess sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries, other bakery items, high milk products, aerated sweetened drinks (colas), fructose corn syrup containing products and highly processed foods. Maintain a normal weight (bmi <23 kg/m2) your present bmi is 27.01 kg/m2, showing definite over weight. That needs to be reduced (ideal body weight + 57 kgs). By following above things you can remain free from diabetes for a considerable number of years. Thanks for the question.

Dear , since you are suffering from hypothyroidism for a long time I assume that you are taking your thyroid medications regularly. But you have not mentioned whether your blood hormone levels are remaining within normal range. For weight loss, you need to consult a dietician and follow a stricter regime rather than going in for an aggressive exercise programme.

My friend. Each of these levels in blood has immense long term impact on your system. And if the blood reports are correct, then you definitely need medications. If you can not control the level of these components in your blood but you are gonna have serious complications in later life. My general advice would be, firstly stop smoking and drinking immediately if you have any of these addictions. Reduce junk food and fatty food to a minimum. Avoid meat, especially mutton. Along with these you also need quite a few medications. Consult with your doctor or feel free to consult me privately via lybrate so that I i can prescribe you the medications after thorough assessment of your condition. Will be happy to help.
