Tsh 12.93, can it b cured, kya bina dawa k kuchh care exercise wagerah karke Tsh level normal Ho sakta h?
Mr. Lybrate-user, tsh level goes up because thyroid gland is not producing enough thyroxine hormone. (there is a deficiency of thyroxine). Once we supplement thyroxine from outside, then tsh levels come down. There is no other way to reduce this. If you do not take the medicine, then there can be serious consequences like swelling of the whole body, excess weight gain, dry skin skin and hair and hair loss, menstrual disturbances, anxiety, depression, difficulty in concentration and in speech. A serious consequence called mixedema may develop. Hence it is necessary to start the treatment and continue it. Thanks.

It could be because of diabetes only sir. Use frolix soap on alternate day and other day don't apply soap. Apply venusia max cream after bath.

My aunt is a known case of diabetes since 20 yrs. And she was prescribed with jardiance 25 mg. And she already suffering from urinary inconvenience and itching in the pelvic area. Where as jardiance side effects include these two. How come it is possible to prescribe a medicine with out any intervention with the patient. Already patient is in insulin n metformin. Prescribing jardiance may cause hypoglycemia. What is the justification for this prescription?

Yes you right in your comments on Jardiance, if the patient is suffering from recurrent UTI, withdraw the drug for time being and treat with topical as well as systemic antifungal, control of blood sugars by adjusting dosage of insulin, mostly in this pt low sugar may be due to insulin over dosage or poor intake and delayed intake, not because of Jardiance. After complete recovery from fungal infection restart Jardiance with minimal dose of 10 mg, to minimise the requirement of total dose of insulin and added benefits of Jardiance. Even if you get recurrent UTI, then stop and can switch over other medications. Finally I like to mention timely recommended food and regular physical activity and avoiding sugary, fatty items, along with regular meditation or yoga which may help to reduce stress direct or indirect one which is also contributing for optimal blood sugar levels. All the best take care of the fundamentals.

Lybrate-user, diabetes melltus if confirmed, then has to be treated with appropriate drugs. The commonly seen diabetes in adults is t2, which can be well controlled by oral anti- diabetes drugs. There are a number of them. Choice of the drug depends on the severity of blood sugar level and presence of resistance to insulin. Some times oral drugs do not give adequate relief, then insulin injections are used along with oral drugs. Apart from drugs diet and exercise play e very important role. Because over weight, inactivity and junk foods are major contributors for development and increasing the severity of diabetes. Diet for each patient has to be very specifically advised. But general rule is to avoid sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries and other bakery items, sweetened aerated drinks (colas), highly processed food products and fructose corn syrup containing products. Plus alcohol and smoking should be completely avoided. Daily exercise of about 1 hour is a must. Weight should be maintained near normal. One should consume good deal of green leafy vegetables and salads. Thanks.

Hi. Thyroid conditions may cause generalised itching on your skin. Apply good moisturisers on your skin after bath. You may use coconut oil. Use mild cleansing lotion and avoid soap. Get your thyroid profile repeated and see of your dose needs any adjustment. Avoid direct contact of woolen clothing on your skin, wear cotton clothing underneath.
