I am 53 Years old, few days ago I had a thyroid test. In the result THS shows 7.88 Unit mcIU/ml. Is it dangerous level of THS? if so what is the medicine and is there any diet by which it can be brought to the normal level.

CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology, MBBS

Ask Free Question
Mr chandrashekhara, tsh level 7.88 milli units/ml is abnormal, it should be below 4.2. Higher tsh level means thyroid gland is not functioning properly and there is a deficiency of the hormone thyroxine. Only treatment is to take thyroxine tablets in adequate dosage for life time. Certain dietary precautions should be taken like avoid soya containing foods, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, mustard and coffee. Consume good quantity of green vegetables (other than mentioned), use onion, garlic, fruits and whole grain flour for breads.

Without other medicines diabetes cannot be controlled with Fenfuro .Diabetes affects all organs in the body ? Eyes, kidneys, nerves, reproductive system all are affected, In fact, from toe to hair. For diabetic control, patient should be under proper guidance for regular follow up and advice. It is not as easy task to control blood sugar in the desired normal range. Whatever we eat is metabolised to sugar in the body to provide energy for our daily activities. For the absolute control, one has to monitor his / her blood sugar at regular intervals (Self-Monitoring of Blood glucose ? SMBG). Though difficult, this can be done by a glucometer and keep a record. Get an idea of Fasting sugar (FBS) and 2 hours after food (PPBS), & HbA1C (inform me) and check before dinner and after every major food. The basic idea is to reduce the food intake to 1/3 of what you take now. The dictum of sugar control is diet, exercise, diet + medicine and at later stage medicine+ Insulin will be needed. There are different diet plans of varying calories for each person depending on his activity & lifestyle.

Hi , Along with medication ,try dietary , exercise option as well. 1. Consume a low-calorie diet (often less than 1,400-1,800 calories a day). Most people cannot adhere to this kind of low-calorie diet. 2. Consume a Mediterranean diet, with lots of fresh fruits and vegetables, fish and beans as protein sources, and omega-3 and monounsaturated fats (olive oil), while avoiding saturated fats, refined carbohydrates, cholesterol-laden foods, excess omega-6 fats, and most animal products. An increasing percentage of health-conscious Americans are adopting this kind of diet 3. Avoid sugary fruit juices (almost all fruit juices contain too many sugars) and beverages spiked with fructose,80-84 sucrose,85-89 and/or high-fructose corn syrup.Consume a low-glycemic index and low-glycemic load diet. Brisk walks for 20-30 mins at lest 5 times a week

It is important to evaluate you clinically for the reason for such a pain. You have not mentioned the medicines you are taking. It could be neuropathy or side effect of metformin. I suggest to consult a good diabetologist for correct advise.

A tsh level of 7 milli units is a subclinical hypothyroidism. So normally there is no treatment required. Only when tsh level goes over 10 milli units/ ml treatment is advocated. But sometime even at a lower level of tsh like yours, if t4 level is low, if there are any troublesome symptoms of hypothyroidism then treatment si given.

Mr. Lybrate-user, if you have confirmed diabetes then appropriate treatment with anti diabetes drugs is needed. If diabetes is in control then fasting sugar should be closer 100 mg, pp 150 to 160 mg & hba1c should be <6.8%. If these levels are not achieved then you are inviting severe long term complications of diabetes. Taking milk is good but sugar control and overall diet restrictions must be adhered tp.

Losing weight and keeping it off, is not an easy task and often we are frustrated by failed attempts at doing so. The cause of such failure, mostly, is not making the attempt in a comprehensive and disciplined manner. A comprehensive lifestyle modification program for weight loss not only helps you lose weight but also leads to significant betterment of blood sugar, lipids, bp levels etc. And thus reduces your health risks of diabetes and cvd but also make you feel more in control of your life. Therefore, if you have not been able to lose weight on your own, should consider getting into one of these. The components of such a program should be the following: diet modification and calorie restriction: the diet plan you should follow should be driven by the following principles: it should be aligned to your eating preferences in terms of food and frequency of eating, as much as possible ; no diet plan (low fat or low carb, 4-5 meals a day or more or less frequent meals etc.) has been prov.

Hello, if you have hypothyroidism and if it is not in control, then weakness and tired feeling through out the day and even sleepy feeling can occur. When in excellent control tsh level will be between 3 to 4 mu/l. It is better if you give full details like earlier thyroid test results, current tsh levels and whether you exercise daily or not. Plus whether you are following all the guidelines about dosing and food restriction. Thanks.

You can stop your existing medication and instead start Glycomet Gp Forte (1/1000mg) at night. Also, do a HbA1c level. And repeat blood sugar levels fasting and PP after 7 days.
