Alpanaji, if you have diabetes and if it is not in control, you may have to get up on a number occasions at night, which does disturb the sleep. So please let me know if blood sugar levels are in control or not? fasting should be 100 mg or there about, pp 150 to 160 mg and hba1c%<7. This plus regular exercise daily for 1 hour will definitely help you get good sleep. Taking drugs to induce sleep is never a good option.

lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. If your TSH is 5.87 mU/L, then you are having a very marginally high TSH, at best it is called as Sub- clinical hypothyroidism. This does not need any treatment, unless you have any associated symptoms of hypothyroidism like weight gain, cold intolerance, swelling of face and lower limbs, irregular menstrual periods, dry skin, dry hair and hair fall, joint and muscle pains plus anxiety and depression. Further if you have any of the above symptoms then you also need to get a anti TPO antibodies test done to confirm if there Hashimoto; s Thyroiditis. If a person has developed hypothyroidism then treatment is for life time. There is no question of 15 days treatment etc. When levothyroxine is prescribed it should always be taken on empty stomach early in the morning and nothing should be eaten for at least 1 to 1 and 1/2 hours after that. Because the drug is in very small quantity and is very sensitive. Taking it after meals is absolutely useless. F you have any doubts please do come back. Another important aspect about hypothyroidism is that it affects fertility. Thanks.

A high uric acid level can be caused when your body either produces too much uric acid or your kidneys don't eliminate uric acid rapidly enough. A high uric acid level may cause increasingly frequent attacks of gout, or it may never cause problems. A high uric acid level may also cause some people to develop kidney stones or kidney failure. And some people with a high uric acid level also develop high blood pressure, heart disease or chronic kidney disease, but it's often unclear whether this is a direct cause or merely an early warning sign of these conditions. Factors that may cause a high uric acid level in your blood include: Diuretic medications (water pills),Drinking too much alcohol,Genetics (inherited tendencies),hypothyroidism (underactive thyroid),Immune-suppressing drugs,Niacin, or vitamin B-3, obesity,psoriasis, Purine-rich diet — organ meat, game meat, anchovies, herring, gravy, dried beans, driedpeas, mushrooms and other foods Renal insufficiency — inability of the kidneys to filter waste Tumor lysis syndrome — a rapid release of cells into the blood caused by certain cancers or by chemotherapy for those cancers,Also, you may be monitored for high uric acid levels when undergoing chemotherapy or radiation treatment for cancer. Avoid protein diets, avoid more milk products. bad habits , fast food/fat/oily,salty foods. Coffee, smoking, alcohol intake. Non-veg., take whole grain,oats,green veg.,plenty of water in day time, 1 glass of water at night before bed. Take tab. Zyloric 100 mg once a day. Tab. Ulracet sos for pain in joints.

Hi, my tsh level keeps on fluctuating. I was suggested to take 125 mcg of altroxine 2 months back and my tsh went down to 0. 21 again after reducing the dose to 112. 5 it again went to 13. 85 this month. I' m not suffering from pcod, epilepsy or blood sugar. I' m taking folic acid and ecospirin 75 daily and taking caldikind(cholecalciferol) sachets once a week. Please let me know if there' s anything serious.

125 mcg dose was a bit high to start with. Ecospirin is not to be given with hypothyroidism. And 4 sachets will suffice for vit d. Please consult for proper advanced management. Dr surbhi agrawal consultant physician and diabetologist

Your medicines need to be changed as you will require a slightly higher dose of medicines for a better sugar control. Also, there is no need to check the hba1c so soon, it should be retested after 3 months. Only fasting and post food blood sugar values are required meanwhile, to check whether the medicines are having effect.

I am a Diabetic patient, so please suggest me how will I get cure. Please please please.
Hye, thanks for the query. For a diabetic it is best advised to have a diet planned as per the sugar levels, lifestyle and history. Though you can follow some guidelines - you need to start medication initially to bring down sugar levels. The sugar levels will fluctuate depending on what you ate or did not eat, stress levels and activity levels. You have to try and manage a balanced carb intake. Have small frequent meals. Do not fast for long hours. You have to eat 3 main and 3 mid meals. Your diet must include whole grains, seasonal fruits, vegetables, small amounts of nuts and dairy and pulses or dals or lean meats like chicken or fish and egg. Starchy vegetables need to be planned into the diet. Avoid a very heavy meal at one time. Avoid fruit juices, aerated drinks or sugarcane juice, honey, jaggery or sugar. Avoid junk foods. Exercise and stay active. Avoid exercise if sugar levels are above 250mg/dl. Do not attempt to try out too many remedies as you could go into hypoglycaemia. Sleep well. It's all a matter of discipline.

Hi lybrate-user Please share the TSH range of your lab report/complete report. Normally TSH should be in the range OF. 3 TO 3.3IU/ml. It might be borderline raised. Ideally Thyroid function tests should be done after 12 hours fasting in the morning. That helps in better identification of borderline hypothyroidism I am outlining  food you should avoid or restrict in Hypothyroidism. 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.  Hope this helps.

Mr. Lybrate-user, to build muscle your diet has to have a bit more proteins is right. But most importantly you have to do specific strength building, muscle building exercise along with additional protein intake. 2 tea spoons of protein powder is hardly going to give any quantity required. It will be better if you consume 2 or 3 egg whites daily, that would definitely meet the additional need more adequately tether with powder.

My sugar Level 300 to 400.
Taking oral antidiabetic drugs initially when your pancreas is already stressed vl create unhealthy living after few years. Kindly do a hba1c test and if its too high then get started on insulin for first 3 months. The best way is this. Tests to b taken are lipid profile renal function test fbs; ppbs; hba1c urine analysis.

Few details are required to give correct advise, like weight, height, waist circumference, level of physical activity every day and the dosage of medications taken. Ppg 0.2 needs to be taken with each meal with first bite. As regards the food on tour one can stick to dal roti, salads, curd and a little rice (if needed). Breakfast could be upama, 2 idlis, 1 -2 plain dosas with nil oil, and half apple or 1 orange etc. Dinner should be similar to lunch. Avoid sweets, pastries, deep fried foods, drink dilute butter milk. A glass of skimmed milk can be had at bed time.
