If you are effective treatment then tsh should be around 3 to 4 milli units for achieving good control and removal of all symptoms. Looking at your weight and height, right in the beginning you should have started on a higher dose of thyroxine. Now you will have to increase the dose to 87.5 mcg per day. Then check tsh after 6 weeks to see if the levels are down. So please do that from today only. Thanks for the question.

Hyperthyroidism treatment consists of oral medicines like methimazole, carbimazole and propylthiouracil. Other measures like thyroid ablation by radioisotope and surgery are also indicated in some cases. Kindly contact me with all the reports if possible.

Kidney stones treatment depends on the types and size of stone, most kidney stones won't require invasive treatment. You may be able to pass a small stone by: drinking water. Drinking as much as 2 to 3 quarts (1.9 to 2.8 liters) a day may help flush out your urinary system. Unless your doctor tells you otherwise, drink enough fluid mostly water to produce clear or nearly clear urine. Pain relievers. Passing a small stone can cause some discomfort. To relieve mild pain, according to your medical history I may prescribe pain relievers such as ibuprofen, acetaminophen or naproxen sodium. Medical therapy. I am a doctor and renal (kidney) dietitian who will aslo prescribe a customized diet plan and medications to help pass your kidney stone quickly and with less pain. Do reply back for private consultation for a detailed treatment plan including dietary therapy.

lybrate-user, If blood glucose is well controlled with fastting closer to 100 mg, PP 160 to 180 mg & HbA1c%<7, and if you are on a good healthy diet, there is hardly any need for routine vitamin supplement. If you still want to take the same may do so occasionally. Most important is to have strict blood glucose control, balanced diet and regular exercise. Thanks.

Dear Mr. Lybrate-user, your sugars are in the borderline range for diabetes esp. The fasting. Also your uric acid is towards the higher end of the normal. Since you hv a family history of diabetes, I recommend you to start metformin after consultation with your diabetologist. Also try to follow a proper diet & exercise regime to have good results.

Zoryl m 1 iis for type 2 diabetes. Type 1 requires life long insulin treatment. Zoryl M1 has glimeperide and metformin. Metformin helps to loose weight and increases insulin sensitivity. According to your height of 5 ft your weight should be in range of 50-53 kgs so you are still on higher side. Instead of googling consult the respective specialist.

Dear, your sugars are well controlled with this therapy. Hba1c is also excellently controlled. But I observe that your bmi is slightly higher. In this context piopod 15 may lead to weight gain. Although it's a very good medicine to make insulin act better, weight gain negates it's good effect. You can use other newer drugs with good track records in place of piopod. But if you are comfortable with existing treatment then all the three medicines are available as a single tablet too which can reduce the number of tablets and expenses too. Also amaryl 1 mg may make you feel low on sugar sometimes manifesting as excessive hunger or tremors. So observe sugar levels at home at various different time i. E before lunch, before dinner or randomly at 6 pm. This will help you to detect low sugar if any.

Mr. lybrate-user, If one is on proper treatment and blood glucose is in control then FBG should be closer to 100 mg, PP 150 to 160 mg & HbA1c%,<6.8. Therefore, looking at the details mentioned that is not the case. There needs to be a relook at the treatment, dietary intake and exercise schedule. Thanks.
