lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. If your TSH is 14.5 mU/L, means you are having Hypothyroidism. This needs to be treated with levothyroxine in adequate dose. TSH should be brought down to 3 to 4 mU/L, then only you will be free from all the symptoms of hypothyroidism. Plus efforts to control increasing weight will also be successful. You have to avoid soy beans and products containing soy. Plus consume more of green leafy vegetables, salads and fruits. Plus use whole grain flour for roti and chapati. Avoid maida and products made of it. Thanks.

Hello sir, I am suffering from thyroid from last 10 days. What are precautions to be taken? Please tell me.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
I am sure since you are having the condition for last ten years, you must be aware of all the precautions. Still following are a few: avoid cauliflower, cabbage, broccoli, radish, mustard, soya and soya containing products. Plus exercise regularly to keep weight in check. Take a balanced but restricted diet matching the needs based on weight and level of physical activity. Consume more green leafy vegetables, salads, fruits and use whole grain flour for making chapati and roti. Most importantly take the medication as advised - early morning on empty stomach and nothing to be eaten after that for 2 hs.

You can take any of the suppliments for a short course. Adapt an active and healthy lifestyle. Start exercising every day. Learn Yoga and pranayam from an expert to gain good results. Try Homeopathy along with the regular medications as it can help the body enhance the metabolism very naturally. You can contact me for a detailed consultation.

Erectile dysfunction (ed) or impotence is sexual dysfunction characterized by the inability to develop or maintain an erection of the penis during sexual activity. a penile erection is the hydraulic effect of blood entering and being retained in sponge-like bodies within the penis. The process is most often initiated as a result of sexual arousal, when signals are transmitted from the brain to nerves in the penis. The most important organic causes are cardiovascular disease and diabetes, neurological problems (for example, trauma from prostatectomy surgery), hormonal insufficiencies (hypogonadism) and drug side effects. Psychological impotence is where erection or penetration fails due to thoughts or feelings (psychological reasons) rather than physical impossibility; this is somewhat less frequent but can often be helped. Notably in psychological impotence, there is a strong response to placebo treatment. Erectile dysfunction can have severe psychological consequences as it can be tied to relationship difficulties and masculine self-image generally. If you still have any doubts please ask privately for personal advice,
