In hypothyroidism all the evidence available points to avoiding soy and soy isoflavones as they affect the absorption of levothyroxine which is used for treatment of hypothyroidism. So my advice is not use the soy isofalvones.

You need to do regular physical exercise like walking yoga etc. Also control your diet strictly as per advice of your doctor if your blood sugar still remains high he may advise you some medicine or/and increase the dose of insulin.

Hello, Thanks for the query. It is not clear whether the communicator is male or female. Because hypothyroidism is more common in women. Having repeated boils is unlikely to be due to hypothyroidism. Where as weight not reducing can be a problem due to improperly controlled hypothyroidism. When on treatment TSH should be maintained between 3 to 4 mU/L, then only all the symptoms are likely to be controlled including weight. For repeated boils please get your blood glucose checked. Thanks.

Hello Mr. Lybrate-user. Only your hba1c average blood glucose, triglycerides and alp are not in range. Remaining all tests are almost normal and nothing to fear about. You need to start insulin as your hba1c is not in the limit. Actually maintaining 12 years on oral diabetic drugs is appreciative. Average blood sugar is 194 which need to be controlled immediately. It may be the reason for raise in tgl. And you need to test for ggt as your alp has raised. Do some regular exercise like walking, jogging are any game which ever you feel better. And consult a good physician for good diabetic care. Contact if need further assistance.

How is your sugar control? have you checked hba1c level? joint pains may not be a direct consequence of diabetes. If sugar control is very good then better consult an orthopedic doctor. If control is bad first get the sugar in control and then try other treatment.

Hi sir, I am 26 years old male. I am a diabetic type 1 patient. Either I could marry? either diabetic causes impotencecy?

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Most men have occasionally experienced some difficulty with their penis becoming hard or staying firm, but this is not erectile dysfunction, which is a concern only if satisfactory sexual performance has been impossible on a persistent number of occasions for some time. Broadly, two forms of erectile dysfunction can affect men's sex lives - the main cause is either medical or psychosocial. Here, psychosocial means psychological effects - including the effects of social relationships - on sexual performance. Of course, medical conditions can also affect psychological wellbeing, and while the main cause of sexual impotence will be medical or psychological, there can be overlap between the two. 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) 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.

I am 27 and obese.
Lybrate-userji, t2 diabetes does run in families, passes on to children from parents. So there is a real possibility of you getting it too. However, one good thing about t2 dm is that it is a preventable disease. By that it means that if one maintains a healthy modifies lifestyle, one can remain free from it or postpone it for a number of years. Healthy lifestyle means - exercise regularly, for at least 1 hour a day, take a balanced diet, avoid excess sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries, other bakery items, high milk products, aerated sweetened drinks (colas), fructose corn syrup containing products and highly processed foods. Maintain a normal weight (bmi <23 kg/m2) your present bmi is 27.01 kg/m2, showing definite over weight. That needs to be reduced (ideal body weight + 57 kgs). By following above things you can remain free from diabetes for a considerable number of years. Thanks for the question.
