Hello, I want to know everything about thyroid. How long one have to take medicine for thyroid? What are the effects of it if you stop taking medicine after some time?

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Hello, if you are talking about hypothyroidism, then the treatment with thyroxine which is hormone replacement therapy, hence has to be continued for whole life. Our thyroid gland produces t4 and t3 (t4 is thyroxine, t3 is triiodothyronine). Iodine required for synthesis of thyroxine. Iodine deficiency can lead to hypothyroidism and goitre. Hypothyroidism causes weight gain, slow heart rate, joint pains, swelling of face and lower limbs, dry skin, dry hair and hair fall, irregular menstruation, excess flow, speech difficulty, inability to concentrate, early tiredness and intolerance to cold. Hypothyroidism is diagnosed on the basis of tsh levels. Also another condition known as hashimoto's thyroiditis also causes hypothyroidism. In both these conditions treatment is taking thyroxine tablets for lifetime. Dose depends upon tsh levels and body weight.

I'm 29 years old and I've got TSH of 4.8,LDL/HDL ratio is 5.189 and HDL cholestrolof 30. What should I do? Should I take tablets for Thyroid?/

MD, DM
Endocrinologist, Delhi
You have subclinical hypothyroidism, and dyslipidemia. If you are not symptomatic, mensutral cycles normal, anti tpo test negative and not planning for family, you can watch the tsh over 3monthy interval if you document a rising trend then probably yes you should be treated. Because of your low HDL you have raised ldl/hdl ratio you need o good lifestyle modification with regular 45 min exercise daily. Regards.

Sir my TSH is 0.04. So what I have problem and how it can be controlled. And my AST/SGOT is 336 and ALT/SGPT is 527 what I have do.

MBBS
General Physician, Bangalore
Is it 0.04 or 0.4? If 0.4, its normal. If 0.04, you might be having hyperthyroidism and in hyperthyroidism liver enzymes tend to go high. Controlling thyroid overactivity will calm the liver too. Please see your GP. Get your cardiac status checked too. Keep an observation of the symptoms that you could be having like yellowish discolouration of the skin mainly the white part of eye. Any distension of abdomen. Too high pulse rate or bp or feeling your own heart beat is not normal. For now, decrease your iodine intake which comes from salt, egg, milk and milk products etc. Eat a lot of cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, spinach etc. Take multivitamin supplements especially vitamin B and D. Also try to take omega 3 fatty acids and minerals like zinc as much as possible. Wish you good health.

I am having thyroid. I recognized it before one year. I have been using THYRONORM 100MG. My TSH levels are normal after using this Medicine. I have been checking my TSH levels for every three months. Then I again met Endocrinologist for the opinion. But he advised me to take 100mg again. I thought the Mg should be decreased. please tell me a valid suggestion and I want to consult a homeotherapist for the permanent cure. please suggest me with the best answer.

Hi lybrate-user hypothyroidism is due to deficiency of thyroid hormones. The thyronorm medicine you are taking is supplying the deficiency your thyroid gland is unable to produce. Your thyroid level is normal because of medication. Normally thyroid medicine is required life long. So please follow your endocrinologist as proper thyroid levels are essential. There is no permanent cure as such.

Uncontrolled diabetes can decrease saliva flow, resulting in dry mouth. Dry mouth can further lead to soreness, ulcers, infections, and tooth decay & mobility of teeth.Keep Check on your Sugar levels on this World diabetes Day.

Hi doctors. How many grams of sugar and carbohydrate can a pridibatic person can eat in a day. Is honey good and safe for pridibatic person? please suggest. Thanx.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Mr. lybrate-user, It is difficult to answer about how many grams of sugar and carbs to be eaten. Basically if one is in a pre-diabetes state, then over all caloric intake has to be restricted to meet the exact requirement based on - Ideal body weight X 25 calories per kg / day. In your case IBW should be around 60 kgs. So 60 X 25 cal /Kg = 1500 calories, that means your total dietary intake should be 1500 cals per day. It best to avoid sugar or jaggery or sweets in total. Honey is also similar to sugar, there is hardly any difference. It is supposed to give some additional anti-oxidents. But only a small quantity should be used. Complex carbs like whole grain products are best. Do not use maida, pasta, bakery items, junk foods, sugary aerated drinks, pastries etc. Avoid deep fried foods and fructose corn syrup containing products and highly processed packaged products. Consume more of green leafy vegetables and salads and fruits. Daily exercise of at least 1 hour is necessary. Thanks.

I, want to loose weight. At night I'm drinking only pure carrot and beetroot juice without sugar and milk. So is it good, to have to get weight loss?

Avoid beetroot in that and have that before 3 hrs of bed. Also start taking honey and lemon water to start your day. Follow a low calorie and 60gms protein diet chart. Also start taking a plate of salad before 20 mins of your lunch. Consult privately for detailed diet chart with me.

Best Treatment for Diabetic food is papaya and honey dressing in unani system

Is there such a thing as too much fruit? If yes, how much and how does it affect our health? Is consuming fruit for breakfast good for a normal person's our body? What about for a diabetic? Thanks!

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Mr. Lybrate-user, if a person is not having diabetes, then consuming a good quantity fruits is welcome. There is no restriction. All fruits are good. But for a person with diabetes fruits like mango, banana, chikkoo and grapes are not good as they are too sweet. Other fruits like papaya, pomegranate, apple, pear, guava, orange, sweet lime and water melon are permitted. However, a daily intake of about 100 g is recommended that too with good blood sugar control. Excess fruits in diabetes are not advisable. Thanks for the question.

I have fluffy body around my neck on my shoulder. Is this a symptom of thyroid? I had thyroid earlier during my pregnancy what should I do? Please suggest.

MBBS, MD - Internal Medicine
Internal Medicine Specialist, Faridabad
Drink more water, high-carbohydrate foods such as potatoes, rice, pasta and bread. 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, do test for thyroid.

Im high blood pressure and diabetes patient how I decrease both this by food and exercise?

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Mr Debu, For treating both hypertension and diabetes taking prescribed drugs is essential. If you are already on drug treatment, then only the diet control and exercise will provide additional benefit. If you are looking for only diet and exercise without any drug treatment, then i am not sure whether there is any benefit. For hypertension your diet should contain less of salt (not more than 2.3 g a day). Our average diet gives almost 8 to 10 g of salt. (Sodium chloride). This means all food preparations made at home should contain minimal salt, no salt on table, no salt to be added to salads or fruits. No processed foods as all those contain very high quantity of salt. No pickles and papads, no salty substances fried shave or chivada etc. For diabetes your diet should give exact calories based on your Ideal Body Weight, blood sugar levels and extent of daily physical activity.You should avoid sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods and pastries. Refrain from alcohol and smoking, red meat and egg yolk. Plus at lest 1 hour of exercise on all days of the week or at least on 5 days.

I want to know if diabetic type II person can eat curd as it controls sugar level. Secondly can any diabetic person start taking IME 9 tablet for better sugar control without nay side effects? Is it complementary to drugs like Metformin etc?

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. A person with diabetes can definitely eat curds, it provides some proteins and also a probiotic. Whether it helps control blood glucose or not I am not sure. SInce it does not contain carbs, unlikely to raise blood glucose. As regards IME 9 tablets, a lot of unsubstantiated claims are made about those. There are no properly done (double blind, cross over) clinical studies supporting various claims being made. Still if one wants to use those, as an additional treatment then it is OK. Do not stop modern drugs and switch over to those. Thanks.

Hi lybrate-user I am surprised you have discontinued your medicines. Thyroid medications are generally needed lifelong. Gastritus and bloating problems need a lifestyle and medicine together to get better.. Accordingly Thyroid hormone replacement is given according to the most recent report snd your Body weight. You need to repeat FT3/FT4/TSH: empty stomach blood to be given. Share your current reports I can help you better. It's important  you maintain  your body weight exercise regularly. Weight gain increases thyroid hormone requirements. Avoid cruciferous   group of veggies  like cabbage and broccoli. Avoid soya bean in all forms. No soya, nugget, chunk, tofu or milk. Limit their intake: Brussels sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower, kale, turnips, and bok choy. Cooking the vegetables can reduce the effect that cruciferous vegetables have on the thyroid gland. Limiting your intake to 5 ounces a day appears to have no adverse effect on thyroid function. Decrease gluten  intake from processed  food. Always try whole grain varieties of cereals which is rich in fibres and help improve  bowels (Take your thyroid replacement  medicine several hours before or several hours after food rich in fibres. Otherwise problem  with absorption  of hormone. 20 to 35 gram of fibres daily from all sources. Avoid excessive fatty (deep fried) and sugary food as hypothyroidism  causes your metabolism  to slow down &weight gain. Avoid highly salted food, chips, pickles, sauces as they Contain  large amount of sodium. Hypothyroidism  puts you at risk of high BP and excess sodium in salt aggravates Coffee  in excess. And coffee with thyroid hormone  replacement  can prevent absorption. Alcohol. It is toxic to thyroid gland and prevents  hormone production and absorption. The problems of hypothyroidism  gets better with medicines, diet and exercise. You will start better as the levels of your hormone normalises. Initially  you need to do the TSH test every 6 weeks till normal TSH then every 3 months For bloating and acidity Diet, exercise, medicines. If control is poor with once a day dose medicines may have to be changed. Avoid spicy, fried food Have plenty of water and green veggies, fruits, curd. Exercise for 40 minutes every day. Go to sleep atleast 2 hours after a meal. Hope this helps
