I want to get my thyroid tested. Most labs have 2 tests for it. I am confused about which tests should I get done First: T3, T4,TSH 2. Second: FT3, FT43. Or is it important to do both?

Hello, Thanks for the query. Get a thyroid function test done, which checks T3, T4 and TSH. That will give an idea. Getting freeT4 and FreeT3 is not routinely needed. Thanks.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. In diabetes peripheral neuropathy is a common occurrence, causing either burning or tingling and numbness in feet and legs. To reduce that you need to achieve strict blood glucose control with fasting < 100 mg, PP 150 to 160 mg & HbA1c% <6.8. Therefore, apart from appropriate medication, it is necessary to take restricted diet, that gives exact calories based on your ideal body weight (62 kgs), extent of physical activity and blood glucose levels. Plus if need be certain medication like Methylcobalamine and / or pragabalin may be beneficial. Thanks.

Does having 450 ml of Drinks once in a week harmful in diabetes? What is more preferable Rum? Whisky? Or Beer?

Does having 450 ml of Drinks once in a week harmful in diabetes? What is more preferable Rum? Whisky? Or Beer?
Mr. Lybrate-user, alcohol in any quantity is not beneficial in diabetes. 450 ml per week is a fairly large quantity when drinks like rum or whisky is considered as here is higher alcohol concentration in both. Beer 450 ml is not such a large quantity. However, alcohol gives empty calories, masks hypoglycemic awareness. Plus it does affect liver in the long run leading to alcoholic fatty liver disease and later its consequences. So in my opinion lesser quantity (about 180 ml per week) may be ok if drinks other than beer are consumed.

Mr. Lybrate-user kumar, this could be simple viral fever, which is invariably self limiting, does not need any major treatment. What is required is a good rest, good hydration with oral rehydraton solution, about one and half liter a day and some fever reducing tablets. The condition improves in 3 to 4 days.

In diabetes frozen shoulder as well as erectile dysfunction occur as a complication of the disease. First thing is you have to achieve a stricter control of blood sugar to prevent complications. For frozen shoulder please consult a physiotherapist and follow the instructions. For erectile dysfunction if you not yet taken tab viagra please try 50 mg about 1 h before intended contact. It should help.

Lybrate-user, to reduce or stop hair fall tsh level has to come down to about 3 to 4 milli units/l. If level is higher than this, then hair fall may not stop. So please check what is the current tsh level. Rest of the things like using a shampoo and various oils etc is really of no consequence. If dandruff is more you may use some anti fungal scalp lotion along with shampoos. But most important is the tsh level. Thanks.

Hi, Uric Acid level of 7.78 is not too bad. If you are on certain medications that increase uric acid (certain anti-hypertensive drugs), you will have to look for alternative medications. You can also reduce your uric acid level by diet control (avoid red meat and other animal proteins). Your actual complaint of burning micturition is probably because you are drinking less water and/or you have a urinary infection. If you also have abdominal pain while passing urine, it may be due to a stone in the kidney or urethera. So, what I will suggest is, drink plenty of water, if the burning still persists, get your urine routine and culture taken. If there is associated pain abdomen, get an ultrasound scan. Hope this helps.

Hello- follow these points for blood sugar control- a) avoid day sleep. B) avoid over eating, non-vegetarian diet, rice, potato and dairy products. C) take evening meals before 7 pm. D) walk at least 100 yards or sit in vajrasana position after meals. E) go for morning walk or kapal bhati pranayam early morning. F) physical exertion and increase sweating will help in diabetes. G) avoid small meals like break fast and supper, instead go for two heavy meals. H) amla, turmeric and shilajeet are beneficial in diabetes control and to reduce diabetic complications. No pork is not safe as it contains eggs of worms which can develop worm infestation in your brain and thus causing epilepsy (cystisarcosis).

Thank you for writing to us. Please note the following in respect to your queries: vitamin b12 deficiency can happen if you have certain conditions, such as: atrophic gastritis pernicious anemia conditions affecting the small intestine, such as crohn's disease, celiac disease, bacterial growth, or a parasite heavy drinking immune system disorders, such as graves' disease or lupus long-term use of acid-reducing drugs. You can also get vitamin b12 deficiency if you're a vegan (meaning you don't eat any animal products, including meat, milk, cheese, and eggs). Treatment for vitamin b12 deficiency: if you have pernicious anemia or a problem with its absorption, you'll need to replace vitamin b12 by injection initially and then continued injections, high doses of an oral replacement, or nasal therapy for life. If the issue is that you don't eat animal products, you can change your diet to include vitamin b12-fortified grains, a supplement or b12 injections, or a high-dose oral vitamin b12 if you are deficient. Causes of vitamin d deficiency: vitamin d deficiency can occur for a number of reasons: you don't consume the recommended levels of the vitamin over time. Your exposure to sunlight is limited. You have dark skin. Your kidneys cannot convert vitamin d to its active form. Your digestive tract cannot adequately absorb vitamin d. You are obese. Treatment for vitamin d deficiency treatment for vitamin d deficiency involves getting more vitamin d -- through diet and supplements. If you don't spend much time in the sun or always are careful to cover your skin (sunscreen inhibits vitamin d production), you should speak to your doctor about taking a vitamin d supplement, particularly if you have risk factors for vitamin d deficiency. If you still need any help get back to me. Thanks.

I am 23 year old. From past 2 year I am suffering from thyroid. I have problem of weight gain. I am now totally dependent on allopathy medicines. I want to treat it naturally. Is their any way to treat? How can I control my weight gain?

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology

Since the question has appeared in front of me, I thought it is better to clarify certain things to you. Hypothyroidism is a thyroxine deficiency disorder. So the only treatment is to supplement that hormone. There is no other treatment. Weight gain can be controlled, but first tsh levels should be brought down to 3 to 4 milli units. Ml. If presently that level is high, then efforts to control weight will not be effective. Along with drug treatment diet control and exercise are necessary. If you still want t try any other therapy you can go ahead. Best of luck.

lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Madam what is the current TSH level? Unless TSH is very well controlled (<3 mU/L), efforts to control weight will not succeed. So please check that. To give a specific dietary plan I need to know your present dietary pattern, extent of daily exercise. General guidelines to be followed are: Stop eating sweets, deep fried foods, pastries, bakery items and foods made from maida. Increase intake of green leafy vegetables, salads and fruits. Avoid soy beans and soy containing food products. Always use whole grain flours for chapati and roti. Plus exercise daily for 1 hour minimum. Thanks.

Weight Loss With Hypothyroidism

Thyroid and weight loss

Losing weight with hypothyroidism is a challenging task. All those with hypo thyroid and weight loss on their mind, go for a very low calorie diet which can further lower the body’s metabolism, worsening the problem. Hence the correct approach is needed.
 
Keep a check on your thyroid levels: remember the answer to your weight loss question is solving the reason for weight gain. If you have a thyroid problem and weight loss is your goal, you must keep a check on your thyroid levels. Take your medications regularly and keep your levels as close to the normal range as possible. And you will see your weight coming to normal. Check your thyroid levels every 3-4 months, or at least once in 6 months.

Increase your activity: lowered metabolism is the main hurdle for those struggling with thyroid and weight loss. Increasing the activity levels through exercise will help in increasing the metabolism. Increase your activity levels by including a 30-45 minutes exercise session, be it walking, yoga, tai chi, swimming, cycling or gymming. Take the stairs every time you have to climb up or down. Short medium paced walks after your meals will be beneficial too.

Increase your water and fibre intake:

Hypothyroidism can cause chronic constipation, water retention and edema. Increasing water and fibre intake will help in regularizing bowel movements. Increased water consumption will also help in flushing out your lymphatic system, further helping water retention problems.

Increase selenium intake: to supplement selenium in your diet, include bran, whole wheat, tuna, onions and tomatoes in your diet.

Increase iodine intake: increasing iodine intake will help in improving the thyroid functions. Eat iodized salt. If your doctor advises, go in for iodine supplements as well.

Increase your metabolism: the key for thyroid and weight loss is increasing your metabolism. Here are some tips on how you can do that.

i] Have 5-6 mini meals – Small and frequent meals helps in reducing the sugar spikes and balance the blood sugar level. This will help in avoiding hunger pangs. Small frequent meals help by keeping the digestive system on the go. It helps in burning more involuntary calories and prevents storage of fat.

ii] Green tea – Drinking green tea will increase the metabolic rate and your energy levels. Hypothyroidism makes you feel tired and fatigued all the time. Green tea will help in decreasing the stress levels and will give you the most needed energy kick.

iii] Warm water and lemon – A glass of warm water and lemon early in the morning and after your main meals will help you in keeping the metabolism rate up through out the day.

Thyroid and weight loss:-

Foods to eat: Include a lot of carrots, whole grain cereals, avocado, apricots, fish, asparagus, olive oil and sunflower seeds.

Foods to avoid: Eat less of broccoli, lima beans, cabbage, peanuts, sweet potato, mustard, kale, kohlrabi, linseed and soy products. These foods may interfere with iodine uptake in the body. Don’t cut these foods out completely, just keep these to a minimum.

Whether the excess weight comes from thyroid or other hormonal issues, the key to weight loss is to correct the underlying condition while monitoring your diet, eating the right things and avoiding what’s wrong and exercising. A healthy lifestyle since the very beginning is the solution to every weight related problem, including thyroid and weight loss.
