In general, most cases of fatigue \weakness may be attributed to three areas: lifestyle factors, medical conditions or psychological problems. A thorough assessment is needed in all three factors to get to the actual cause of weakness. I being a both a registered dietitian and doctor have been successfully helping patients with their problems through a holistic approach using customized therapeutic diet and medications. Do reply back for private consultation.

Hello doctor, I was given 50 mg thyronorm tablet for two months as I have 5.972 TSH level. I would like to know how long does it take to come back my TSH level to normal.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. For TSH to come to normal (provided if the dose of Thyroxine being taken is adequate), it will approximately 6 to 8 weeks. So one needs to check TSH level after a gap of 6 to 8 weeks after starting the dose of thyroxine. But if the dose is less than needed, then TSh may not come down to desired level. Unless TSh is brought down to 3 to 4 mU/L all the symptoms are not in control. Thanks.

If the report comes abnormal, then we need to discuss your problem in detail. So, kindly contact me in private consults, so that I can give you prescription also. U will be fine. Thank you.

With TSH 10 you are having Hypothyoidism, means your thyroid gland is secreting less hormone than required causing metabolism of body to slowdown causing few symptoms which you may tolerate. Other things as you have asked are unpredictable.

For the last 5 years iam diabetic. I am using gemer p1 in the morning and januvia 100mg in the night. However still my sugar levels are between 170(fasting) and 250(pp). I am nonalcoholic and vegetarian weight 63 kgs. Kindly suggest me what steps should I take to reduce my sugar levels to normal range

MBBS, MD - Internal Medicine
General Physician, Delhi
Dear, Yes your sugar levels are not well controlled and you are on a number of medications. But do not worry you still do not need to be insulin as we can still increase the doses of your medications. Glimepiride 1 mg can be increased so can met for min and pioglitazone. However januvia or sisal up tin is at the highest dose possible.

By now you must have started treatment with thyroxine tablets in dosage as advised by your doctor. Foods to be avoided in hypothyroidism are soya beans, corn, canola, saffllower, flax seed & canola oil, cauliflower, cabbage, tapioca, mustard, peanuts, rapseeds, turnip, sweet potatoes, brussels sprouts, eggs red meat, pears, strawberries, peaches etc. You should take iodised salt, sea foods, salt water fish, celtic sea salt, whole unrefined grains, dairy products, garlic & onions.

Mr. lybrate-user, Blood glucose levels of 160 mg & 250 mg mean there is uncontrolled diabetes. What is the HbA1c%? Long standing diabetes invariably causes erectile dysfunction, even when there excellent control. You have uncontrolled diabetes plus grade 1 obesity with a BMI of 32.14 kgs/M2 (normal <23 kgs/M2). Both these are contributary to the present situation. Strict blood glucose control with fasting closer to 100 mg, PP 150 to 160 mg & HbA1c%<6.8, is essential. Plus reduction of weight as close as possible to normal (69 kgs). Is to be achieved. Thanks.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
I am sure since you are having the condition for last ten years, you must be aware of all the precautions. Still following are a few: avoid cauliflower, cabbage, broccoli, radish, mustard, soya and soya containing products. Plus exercise regularly to keep weight in check. Take a balanced but restricted diet matching the needs based on weight and level of physical activity. Consume more green leafy vegetables, salads, fruits and use whole grain flour for making chapati and roti. Most importantly take the medication as advised - early morning on empty stomach and nothing to be eaten after that for 2 hs.

Ayurveda and Hypothyroidism

Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)

Ayurveda and Hypothyroidism

Almost all the metabolic processes in a person's body are influenced by the hormones produced by the thyroid gland. The most common types of thyroid diseases caused due to dysfunctional thyroid glands are Thyroid nodules, Hypothyroidism, Hyperthyroidism, Goiter, Thyroiditis, and Thyroid Cancer. 

Hypothyroidism is when the thyroid gland is underactive and the amount of hormones produced is insufficient. Hypothyroidism can be caused due to multiple reasons such as iodine deficiency, radiation or surgery on the thyroid gland, and drugs such as lithium and phenylbutazone. You should note that treating thyroid is not a speedy process and a reoccurrence of symptoms might also take place. However with the appropriate remedies and proper diet control, one can make sure that these symptoms are less pronounced. 

Ayurveda: According to Ayurveda, imbalance or disequilibrium in the doshas is the main cause of hypothyroidism. The Kapha dosha i.e. the dosha responsible for body fluids and lubrication and Pitta dosha i.e. the dosha responsible for fire and water body humors, are vitiated. Lifestyle and diet discrepancies further promote imbalances in the doshas. Hypothyroidism is categorized under the Yapya diseases which recur once you cease to take the treatment. 

Treatments:

  1. It is essential to consume adequate quantities of milk. 
  2. Apart from that, coconut oil is one of the best remedies for a hypothyroid patient, since it increases slow and sluggish metabolism. Coconut contains MCFAs i.e. medium chain fatty acids and MTCs i.e. Medium chain triglycerides in abundance which help the metabolism be revved up. 
  3. Ayurvedic herbs useful for treating hypothyroidism are kanchnar, Bauhinia variegata i.e. purple mountain ebony, Jatamansi, brahmi, guggulu, shilajit, gokshura, and punarnava. 

Remedies:

  1. Consume a mixture of Indian gooseberry i.e. amla churna with honey, daily before breakfast. 
  2. One of the main causes of Hypothyroidism is insufficient amount of iodine. Drinking the juice acquired from jalakumbhi i.e. Pistia Stratiotes everyday in doses amounting from 11gm to 22gm increases the iodine content and helps treat hypothyroidism.

For the past several years I suffer from cracks under the sole of my feet. I am 63 years old male diabetic and suffer from High B.P .diabetes and B.P both are under control due to regular medicine and daily exercise. I am free from the symptoms of dry skin on other parts of the body except feet. I have consulted different doctors in allopathy, homeopathy and Ayurveda for the cracks under the sole of my feet with no permanent relief. Some doctors diagnose it dry eczema, others psoriasis and some a problem of dry skin due to diabetes. After treatment in allopathy my ailment increased. I was prescribed oral steroids which I refuse to take because I fear it may cause flare up as we had seen its traumatic impact on the health of my father who had psoriasis/dermatitis on the body and his disease flared up due to the use of steroids and could not be controlled. After prolonged treatment of around 7 years with different top hospitals of Delhi he ultimately died of skin cancer in the year 1986. I tried my treatment in homeopathy but after treatment of around 3 years I had to stop the medicine since I did not get any permanent relief. Similarly after treatment of 2 years and 4 months from Jiva Ayurveda Faridabad, I plan to stop the medicine since I have not got any permanent relief except for brief periods. During this treatment skin under feet always remained hard and dry but during the period of July to September and from December to February cracks usually heal up while the skin usually remains hard and scaly. But as each season changes the cracks re-appear. I have noticed one peculiar phenomena. Whenever there is change of season with mild summer and when I sleep under the ceiling fan with bare feet my skin tightens up and deep cracks appear. I apply moisturiser but these also dry up and do not work properly. Now I feel after this prolonged experience it is only a problem of dry skin and my sweat glands under the feet do not work properly causing dryness under the feet. Is there any permanent cure or the disease shall last with me?
