lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. TSH 0.87 mU/L, is within the normal range. Which means your present dosage of thyroxine is working very well. There is no reason to alter the dosage. All the symptoms related to hypothyroidism are in check when TSH is within the desired range. But hair fall takes more time to stop. Please do not alter or reduce the dose. Thanks.

Type - 2 Diabetes can be easily managed with right food and you can get off-medication. You should stop consuming these things: 1. Milk products - milk and all kinds of milk products 2. Refined products - like white sugar, refined oil, refined wheat flour, Indian sweets and fried snacks 3. Packed foods - anything that is made in a factory like biscuits, bread, salty snacks, supplement powders etc. Just by doing this, you will observe great improvement in your sugar levels. Also you need to add: 1. 3 types of fruits in breakfast 2. 3 types of salad/veggies before lunch & dinner (not with meals but before meals)

Hi lybrate-user, at the age of 29, there are good chances of conceiving with (or without) medical help. To be able to guide you further, I need to know your husband's semen report, your tubal patency test report, and blood reports (FSH, LH, AMH, TSH, prolactin). Kindly share these, so I can advise you better.

Doctor advised me to take thyroid medicine Eltroxin 12. 5 mcg in morning before breakfast but I am working in night shift, my shift starts at 6.30 pm in evening and shift over at 3.30 am in morning so I take my breakfast in evening at 5.30 pm, so kindly suggest me when should take the Thyroid medicine in morning or in evening, what timing would be best to take thyroid medicine Eltroxin because I am working in night shift.

It is quite simple. Take your thyroid medicine immediately upon awakening and don't take anything orally for at least half an hour after this. So if you are working night shift and wake up at 4 pm, then you should take Eltroxin at 4 pm. If your shift changes then you need to change the timing of thyroid meds accordingly. In case your shifts change frequently then I am afraid your body will have to bear the brunt of this stress. You will have to make a major effort to maintain your health.

As you are suffering from high blood sugar with high BP along with increased creatinine it is better to start with rapid insulin both every breakfast, lunch, dinner and at bed time lantus can be taken according to your blood sugar levels, after getting near normal sugar levels with creatinine levels then you can take tablet with minimal dose of insulin. This line of management will improve your overall general condition. Do not forget to follow timely food intake with reduced salt and oil along with proper physical activity. You should check blood sugars with glucometer before breakfast, lunch and dinner accordingly insulin dose to be planned, whenever you get low sugar that to be corrected with some snacks like, Marie lite biscuits and other easily digestible food, next dose of insulin should be reduced one or 2 units of insulin. I think this management will give good improvement. All the best.

My mother has been suffering from diabetes for the past 15 years. She has to take insulin and medicines everyday as prescribed by doctor. Because of which her blood sugar level goes below normal on certain occasions. But today, it dropped to 37 mg/dl, which has never happened before. She was feeling very weak for sometime and took some glucose after that. Please Doctor, let me know what should be done to avoid such situations in future.

If she is not taking food at the proper time after taking insulin also one reason, apart from that if she is taking more dose she can have hypoglycaemia. In such a case you check blood sugars before breakfast and before lunch and before dinner for one or two days and you can find out which time sugar is high and which time it is very normal or low, accordingly you can increase or decrease the dosage of insulin. So keep in mind and also always keep some easily digestible food, if you get low sugar symptoms you can take some amount of food, you can prevent hypo. All the best.

Diabetes and Depression: Coping With The Two Conditions

Diabetes and Depression: Coping With The Two Conditions

According to most experts, depression and diabetes have been intricately connected in a vicious cycle. While the prolonged and sustaining nature of diabetes directly makes one vulnerable to the bouts of depression, doctors tend to locate traces of depression in the family history of an individual in order to diagnose the roots of diabetes. It won't be too far-fetched to state that both causes as well as affects the other.

If you have diabetes, either type 1 or type 2, you have an increased risk of developing depression. And if you're depressed, you may have a greater chance of developing type 2 diabetes. The good news is that diabetes and depression can be treated together. And effectively managing one can have a positive effect on the other.

How Diabetes and Depression Correlated?                    
There are myriad ways in which diabetes affects depression and vice versa.

Firstly, tackling such a long drawn disease and its various pitfalls might cause a lot of anxiety to one and lead to depression. Whereas on the other hand, depression reduces the zeal to live and thus results in poor lifestyle choices which in turn causes weight gain, unhealthy food habits, physical inactivity. As we are well aware, all these have the potential to wreak havoc for any patient of diabetes. 

Similarly, diabetes ushers in various other health complications, adversely impacting one's productivity. This may cause depression in a lot of people. 

On the flipside, depression impedes one's ability and enthusiasm to work or communicate, this in turn intervenes with one's monitoring of diabetes. Since these two extremely malevolent diseases have such close connections, medical science recommends ways to grapple with both. The rigors of managing diabetes can be stressful and lead to symptoms of depression.

Diabetes can cause complications and health problems that may worsen symptoms of depression.

Depression affects your ability to perform tasks, communicate and think clearly. This can interfere with your ability to successfully manage diabetes.

Treatment: Depression is just like any other illness, it can be treated. Treatment can lift the depression and improve diabetes control.

Looking after your diabetes will help decrease the risk of getting depression. If you already have depression, good diabetes management will help lessen the negative impacts it can have. Depression is no different to any of the other complication of diabetes. It is a genuine illness for which you need to seek help and support from health professionals.

The treatment for depression and diabetes involves a coordinated approach that monitors both diabetes control and the symptoms of depression. It is about finding the treatment that works best for each person. For example, people with diabetes and mild depression may find that regular physical activity improves depressed moods and also helps control blood glucose levels.

Helping Yourself.

If you suspect you might have depression, take control of your health by:

  • Going to a doctor or other health professional
  • Getting involved in social activities
  • Engaging in regular moderate physical activity
  • Learning about depression and diabetes
  • Very particular about medicines prescribed for Diabetes
  • Eating healthily and including a wide variety of nutritious foods
  • Achieving and maintaining healthy weight
  • Limiting your alcohol intake
  • Getting help, support and encouragement from family and friends
  • Asking your doctor to check your blood pressure, cholesterol and blood glucose levels

Hi there. Your TSH, FT3, FT4 all are within normal limits. No need of any concern. You are not suffering from thyroid illness. Your thyroid is still normal after 9-10 years. Your RA quantitative is raised, while your anti-CCP is within normal limits. Uric acid is normal and ESR is either normal or borderline depending upon which type it is. Again, no need of any concern. As far as treatment for Rheumatoid Arthritis is concerned, you may or may not require treatment depending upon your symptoms. As a rule, we treat patients, not reports. So, if you have symptoms or signs of R.A. You might need treatment. Otherwise, not. I have special interest in Rheumatoid illnesses and have acquired good experience in treatment of these conditions. Feel free to consult in case you require further help. All the best .and have a great day.

Selenium and zinc are directly involved with thyroid hormone levels and not antibodies level. Main treatment of Hashimoto is controlling TSH levels and not Ab levels.
