Mr. Lybrate-user, it is seen that after quiting smoking some weight increase occurs. However, if you have diabetes then regular exercise must have been advised. If you had continued that plus diet control the weight would have remained in check. It essential to control weight for sugar control. If you have no discomfort in exercising then do regular workout and reduce the weight.

I have a high Tsh level with normal T3 and t4 levels. 3 tests at 3 month intervals gave 19.32, 22.03, 11.57. The doctor suggested me to use thyronorm 25mg tabs. Do I need to use these for life long or are these ranges normal, for past 1 years I have gained around 8 kgs of weight. Is this related to my thyroid problem.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Please give current tsh and t3, t4 levels. If you have gained weight, means there is presence of hypothyroidism. To confirm whether there is hypothyroidism or not please give current test results.

Hi, My dad is suffering from fever from past one week with a backache. Doctor just advice us to do some routine tests. Following are some results for the test haemoglobin- 10.3, lymphocytes - 18%, Dengue and malaria tests are negative, platelets count is 80 thousand that usually remains in this range only. He is diabetic and when he was diagnosed with low platelets, doctor said that he is having thrombocytopenia. Now I am getting worried for my dad. Kindly provide me the best direction for further investigation as now I am thinking that the present doctor who is checking up my dad doesn't seem me convincing. Thanks.

Hi,
My dad is suffering from fever from past one week with a backache. Doctor just advice us to do some routine tests...
Give him Papaya leaves juice 2 spoons daily in morning for 5 days for increasing platelet counts. And start giving him naturamore male powder with milk for 2 months. Morning and evening. This will make him energetic, and remove the fever of what-so-ever it may be. And ask him to drink plenty of water 3-4 liters in 24 hours. He will be absolutely fine and will start feeling good with 2 days. By that time, just try to manage fever, it will also subside. Don't worry. :) Still if you have any more queries, then please let me know. I will help you out. Take care. :)

Take diet for hypothyroidism:- high-carbohydrate foods such as potatoes, rice, pasta and bread, avoid oily foods,junk foods, go for walk. Nutrient-rich foods that improve your health may also benefit your thyroid gland, antioxidant-rich fruits and vegetables more plenty of water: Blueberries, tomatoes, bell peppers, and other foods rich in antioxidants can improve overall health and benefit the thyroid gland. Eating foods high in B vitamins, like whole grains, may also help. flax oil, Selenium: Tiny amounts of selenium are needed for enzymes that make thyroid hormones to work properly. Eating selenium-rich foods, such as sunflower seeds or Brazil nuts, can be beneficial. Tyrosine: This amino acid is used by the thyroid gland to produce T3 and T4. Taking a supplement may help, Avoid bad habits . Avoid stress. Take Some Relax during work. Take treatment for hypothyroidism :- tab. THYROXINE is used in hypothyroidism. And dose are according to level of thyroid for life time. Do Tests thyroid profile every 3 to 6 months. And consult doctor regular on time.

As if now you are taking the medicine since 20 years your body has become dependent on it so you need to continue for lifetime. Else, you could continuosly monitor the tsh level and decrease the dose of medicine gradually under the guidance of physician.

To reduce the uric acid levels in blood, you may need to limit intake of alcohol, sugary foods and reduce purine rich foods like meat, poultry, seafood and pulses. Vegetables such as cauliflower, asparagus, spinach, peas and mushroom also contain a lot of purines. Add purine-rich foods—such as seafood and red meat—to the list and it can seem hard to find something you can eat.

Mr. Lybrate-user, hypothyroidism does run in families. But there is no definite genetic factor identified. Autoimmune thyroiditis (hashimoto's thyroiditis) is definitely hereditary. In the same family one may get hypothyroidism and other may get hyperthyroidism. One way is to see that there is no iodine deficiency.

My mom aged 50 years has high TSH levels=9.4. She has been taking THYROX-50 for sometime. Sometimes, mainly during night, she feels uneasy, she feels as if she can't breathe. Her feet get cold. We usually give her a massage of oil to her feet, cover her legs with a bedsheets and speed up the ceiling fan to its full extent. This generally calms her down. We also apply Navratna oil to her hair and give her electrolytes to drink, which makes her stable. So what exactly is happening to mom? Even the doctors she has consulted are not able to exactly identify her condition. So please suggest me some remedies.

Yes worm infestation is a common problem in children. I would suggest the following: 1. Repeat deworming dose every 2-3 weeks for 4-6 courses 2. Personal hygiene measures eg. Daily bathing, clean & soft towel, clean & loose clothes, clean socks (even if shoes are not worn), clean toys as the child has a tendency to put toys in the mouth, brushing of teeth, hand washing / sanitizer use & so on 3. Good nutritious food 4. In view of the itching, massage of the skin in general & area around the anus in particular, with oil / cream of your choice will be helpful 5. Periodic check by your paediatrician for this as well as immunizations and preventive & promotive health is a good idea.

lybrate-user, You are overweight with a BMI of 28.87 kg/M2, which very close to be a grade 1 obesity. You will have to take some specific measures and see that weight is reduced (ideal body weight 52 kgs). If Vit D is less then take the supplement of it. There is nothing like a specific time for exposure to sun. Early morning sun rays should fall on the skin. You may take calcium and D3 supplements. Thanks.

6 Common Causes of Infertility That are also Curable

Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)
Sexologist, Delhi
6 Common Causes of Infertility That are also Curable

Infertility is a very common problem among both men and women and it refers to the inability to conceive even after regular unprotected sex. The causes of this can be varied and some of the most prominent ones are:

Causes in Women:

1. Polycystic ovarian syndrome - PCOS is a medical condition in women in which they do not ovulate. It is a major cause of infertility in most women. It can often result in irregular menstruation and an increase in the release of male hormones in the female body. This causes male symptoms like the growth of a beard, hoarse voice etc. in females. The probable causes of this condition comprise being over or under weight, thyroid imbalance etc. It is possible to treat this condition with medical aid and weight management can also prove to be helpful.

2. Lack of sufficient healthy eggs - As you grow in age, the number and health of your eggs decline significantly. This could be a possible reason for your infertility. In this condition, optimizing egg health by maintaining a healthy weight and quitting alcohol and cigarettes can help you get rid of your infertility.

3. Blockage of the fallopian tubes - Blockage of or damage to the fallopian tubes causes the tubal factor that is responsible for infertility in women. The tubal factor can also be a result of endometriosis or any sexually transmitted disease like Chlamydia etc.

Causes in Men:

1. Ejaculatory disorders - Retrograde ejaculation, premature ejaculation, and other issues associated with ejaculation may cause infertility in men. In retrograde ejaculation, the semen enters the bladder instead of emerging out of the penis during orgasm. In premature ejaculation, the ejaculation occurs before the vagina is prepared to receive the semen.

2. Chromosome defects - Disorders like Klinefelter's syndrome can cause abnormal growth of the male reproductive organs resulting in infertility. Other such syndromes include Kallmann's syndrome, Karatagener's syndrome, cystic fibrosis etc. These conditions are mostly genetic.

3. Hormonal imbalance - Male infertility can also be a result of hormonal imbalances like hypogonadism (low testosterone levels), disorders of the testicles, abnormal functioning of the pituitary, thyroid, adrenal and the other glands as well.
