Hello, Looking at weight and height this person has grade 1 obesity with a BMI of 32.74 kgs/M2. This itself is the major contributor for increased blood glucose. His ideal body weight should be 67 kgs, he carries an excess weight of 25 kgs. By brining down the weight to near normal blood glucose will come down. Fasting 127 mgg & 137 mg suggests there is diabetes. Check the HbA1c%, that will give a clear idea. SGPT is more, so alcohol has to be stopped. Taking even occasionally is also not advised. Diet should be restricted to provide calories based on ideal body weight (67 X 20 =1340 calories/day). Thanks.

Treatment for hypothyroidism is giving THYROXINE tablets. And dose are according to level of thyroid for life time. Avoid bad habits . Avoid stress. Some Relax during work. Go for walk, Take plenty of water, high-carbohydrate foods such as potatoes, rice, pasta and bread. 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 oily foods,junk foods, go for walk. Do Tests every 3 to 6 months. And consult doctor on time.

Dear Arunachalam BMI of 22.5 is accurately the optimum levels.... but at your age, deviation of upto 3 counts is absolutely fine. At 63, the exercises you are doing are very good. Support it with an ideal diet plan and mind positivity programs. At a senior age, it is a lazy, depressed mind that causes health problems more than blood sugar. redards

I have make a thyroid test in which T3 and T4 comes 104 & 9.2 respectively but TSH comes 6.27. Is this serious problem. If yes, how I get rid from it.

MBBS, MD
Endocrinologist, Delhi
Your TSH is mildly high suggesting low secretion of thyroid hormone. If you are symptomatic start low dose of thyroid hormone under the guidance of your physician. If asymptomatic repeat TSH after 1 month along with antithyroid antibodies test, if TSH is still high and antithyroid antibodies are positive you need thyroid replacement therapy.

My father has URIC ACID problem due to which ONLY his left foot swells up often. Kindly tell me what precautions should he take and any recommended exercise?

MBBS, MD - Internal Medicine
Internal Medicine Specialist, Faridabad
Watch your weight. Try to lose weight slowly. Eat fresh fruit, vegetables, whole wheat products and some pulses (high in purine) every day. Enjoy low-fat milk and dairy products daily. Keep an eye on the purine content of food. Avoid offal, shellfish and crustaceans and tinned fish such as sardines in oil. Eat no more than 100g of meat, sausages, fish and poultry a day. Drink alcohol only occasionally, as it affects the elimination of uric acid. Eat low-fat food. The consumption of high-fat foods encourages weight gain. Drink at least two litres of low-calorie fluids a day. Recommended fluids are water, tea and fruit juice.

I am happy to read that you are doing yoga regularly" sarvangasana" is a specific aasan for thyroid and you must practise it for at least five minutes every day. Constipation is due to thyroid deficiency, when was the last time you got your thyroid checked? please let me know the result, I want to see scanned copy of the report. Report should not be older than one month. Dizziness while walking can be because of low haemoglobin of low vit d3. Please get blood checked for these two and let me know the result.

I am male of 53 yrs and dont have bp or diabities. Since last 15-20 days there is a swelling of size of one rupee coin on the top portion of my belly button. It pains if pressed mildly else there is no pain. I have tried to reduce my breakfast, lunch and dinner intake but it has no impact. What can be the cause of such swelling and please suggest some remedy.

MBBS, DGO (cal)
General Physician,
You are overweight. This swelling is there for 15/20 years unchanged. It appears to be harmless and not growing. Do you have any such swelling over your trunk and limbs? Is the swelling hard and not reducible on pressure with finger? better do not nurture your doubt in your mind, consult a surgeon he shall be able to give you right diagnosis and advice.

Mr. Lybrate-user, with 116 kg weight you have a grade 3 obesity, that is the major problem. It is possible that uncontrolled hypothyroidism may have been the reason for triggering and increasing obesity. But now your primary objective is tackle obesity. For that hypothyroidims has to be strictly controlled with tsh levels should be maintained between 3 to 4 milli units / l. Then there has to be strict dietary control to be observed and regular exercise regimen. You should aim at cutting about 8 to 10 % of present weight. It is possible, only if you are prepared mentally. Thanks.

Thanks for the query. Because of untreated hyperthyroidism you have lost weight. Therefore, it is essential to start appropriate treatment. There's no dietary restriction. But treatment has to be started. You will need anti - thyroid drug like Carbimazole. Thanks.

Hello, Thanks for the query. Blood glucose level of 280 g (fasting or PP not mentioned) is high. Signifies uncontrolled diabetes. Iin patient with diabetes, that too when it is not well controlled, there can be multiple long term complications related to almost every single vital system of the body. Hence achieving a strict glucose control with FBG < 100 mg, PP 160 to 170 mg & HbA1c% <7. Therefore, if he himself is able to manage, then it is fine. Otherwise there is a need for providing personal assistance and attention. There is also no mention about what is the present treatment that is being taken and dosage etc. So difficult to give exact opinion. Thanks.
