I had been tested for vitamin d and Tsh levels approx 3months back. My vitamin d levels were less than 10 and Tsh levels were 5 (normal range as per lab: 4.9) Since then I have been suffering from muscle pain and cramps during mensuration. This time I faced a lot of neck pain during mensuration. Notes: I have taken vitamin d supplements but no medicine for thyroid.

Check your posture , do not bend your neck excessively and when you work on your laptop or computer after half hour of working move your neck slowly in clockwise and anticlockwise direction . * Do neck massage with lukewarm mustard oil . * Do not take pillow of high hight during sleeping Or avoid to take pillow . * In diet vegetable protein of cereal , B complex supplements and half teaspoon of haldi in a cup of milk for seven days will give you enough relief.

Hello, Thanks for the query. Normally there is no change in taste in the mouth when one eats sugar. Bitterness may occur following certain nuts being eaten. If nothing is taken then it is difficult to say why such a thing occurs. Thanks.

My friend is having swelling on her face and she has gone through the thyroid profile test and she is having increase in T4. So I wanna know whether she i'm having thyroid problem or not and other question I wanna ask in which thyroid womens do not get pregnant. please let me know.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Mr. Lybrate-user, knowing only t4 level it is not possible to diagnose any thyroid condition. It is important to know tsh levels, after that t4 and t3 can be looked at. So pleas look at tsh level, which should be between 0.3 to 6 milli units /ml, above this level is considered as sub clinical hypothyroidism and above 10 milli units is considered as overt hypothyroidism, needs to be treated. If a woman has high tsh level then pregnancy is not likely to occur. It is essential to maintain tsh levels below 2 mill units even before thinking about conception.

You need to give him a balanced and easily digestible diet to support the action of medicines. His diet is not balanced that's why his body constituents are breaking down causing rise in blood sugar. Consult with a Dietician to know what to eat, how, when and how much.

Hello meenakshi. You are in morbid obese category { bmi 39.4}. It is very difficult to loose weight by diet and exercise in this category. If you do not try it seriously. I will end up requiring bariatric surgery for the same. As such high bmi is really detrimental for health in another 10 years to come.

I am male 56+ and having diabetes & hypothyroidism for the past 7 years. No blood pressure. Beginning medication was 1gm metformin + 25 mg thyroxine sodium. Past one year metformin increased to 2gms in divided dose. eltroxin 25 mg remained same. But 6 months back my dosage was increased as follows- metformin 1gms + 1 mg glimepiride (twice) + 50 mg eltroxin once. Now for the past one month it's as follows- Morning 50 mg eltroxin, then before breakfast 1gm metformin + 1 mg glimepiride. Nothing in the night. My sugar levels are well in control as I go out for vigorous walks (5-6 kms) and exercise 5 days a week. The problems is with my libido which has drastically reduced to nothing for the past one and half years. My erection is limp and goes limp very soon. My testerone and sperm levels are okay for my age as per test results done recently. I don't want to take medicines like viagra or such ayurvedic medicines which shoots my pressure to dangerous levels of 145/97 and all white light becomes blue in my sight. The after effects are also very bad for me. Please suggest correctly ,so that at least, I can have satisfactory sex once per week.

Hello- Just like physical and mental health, sexual health is also of great importance. Proper medicines along with proper lifestyle habits can solve the problem and help in leading a healthy sexual life. Persons suffering from metabolic disorders must be treated with a different approach. Modern medicines are not effective in sexual weakness if the patient is suffering from any metabolic disease like diabetes, hypertension etc. Only Ayurveda has an answer (and specialized medicines) which can boost up sex life of persons suffering from serious metabolic disorders. I recommend you to consult your ayurvedic sexologist providing the detailed history, you will definitely be benefited.

Lybrate-user, in diabetes chance of getting repeated urinary tract infection is quite common. So strict blood glucose control is very essential. Fasting glucose should be closer to 100 mg, pp 150 to 160 mg & hba1c% <7. Plus there has to be appropriate antibiotic treatment of each episode of infection. It may be necessary to get a sensitivity test to see which antibiotic is most effective. But still if hyperglycemia is not controlled urinary tract infection can continue to occur. Thanks.

The child will have a family history of diabetes.Very difficult to say if the child will be diabetic or not.Regular monitoring of the baby will be required.Your sister also needs to be very closely monitored throughout her pregnancy to keep the sugars under normal control.

lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Blood glucose levels mentioned show that you have a prediabetic state. In this situation, if proper care is not taken like controlled diet in terms of calories, avoiding sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries, bakery items and foods made from maida, then there is always a possibility of progressing rapidly to wards developing diabetes. It is good to know that you have been able to manage well. But only eating oats and curd rice is not going to meet your nutritional needs. You have to take foods which provides proteins and some fats along with carbs. You have to add a lot of green leafy vegetables, salads and fruits. Some protein foods also are needed. As regards passing some" little reddish liquid" it is difficult to comment what may be the cause. Get your stools examined for presence of overt or occult blood. If need be consult a local physician or a gastroenterologist. Thanks.
