Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. WHen one is on treatment with adequate dose of Levothyroxine, TSH is maintained around 3 to 4mU/L. At that level all the symptoms are in check. If TSH level goes higher (as in your case), it suggests that your thyroxine dose is not enough. Therefore, your doctor has suggested the additional dose of the same. Please check tSH level after 6 to 8 weeks of taking that doe, to find out if TSH has come down as mentioned above. Thanks.

High Sugar During Pregnancy - Tips To Help You Control It!

DGO, MBBS

High Sugar During Pregnancy - Tips To Help You Control It!

Are you experiencing high blood sugar during pregnancy? This condition is known as gestational diabetes. It is associated with hormonal changes, which occur in your body during pregnancy. Women who are overweight, above the age of 25, and have a family history of diabetes are more likely to experience gestational diabetes. In most cases, the blood sugar levels return to normal after giving birth, and proper management enables you to keep away from any complications during pregnancy as well.

Here are ways by which you can control your sugar levels during pregnancy:

  1. Develop an ideal diet plan. You should consult a registered dietitian for framing a diet, which is specific to your condition. Your overall health, age, and other health conditions, if present, are taken into consideration while shaping your diet plan.
  2. Cut down your consumption of sugary food items and drinks. Avoid having candies, soda, cakes, cookies, and all food products, which contain simple sugar in large amounts. This can boost your blood sugar levels rapidly and worsen gestational diabetes.
  3. Have three to four small meals regularly, and also eat snacks in between. Eating frequently prevents the crashing of your blood sugar levels between meals.
  4. Reduce your amount of carbohydrate intake. Instead, consume a lot of food rich in fiber like fruits, vegetables, and whole grain.
  5. Drink a lot of water every day. Sufficient hydration of your body is important for stabilizing your blood sugar levels to keep away from complications during pregnancy.
  6. Undertake regular, light activity after your doctor’s approval. Activities like walking and swimming help in keeping your blood sugar under control. Exercising during pregnancy is also important for weight loss after giving birth.
  7. Buy a glucose meter and get your blood sugar levels checked frequently. Most common meters require you to prick your finger with a needle and drop your blood on a strip for testing. You can make changes in your diet and medication for preventing a hypoglycemic episode, based on your regular results.
  8. If your doctor recommends it, you should test your urine ketones. Ketones occur in your urine, while your body burns fat to produce energy. These are harmful for your growing baby.

Apart from these, you should take insulin strictly according to your doctor’s instructions. Your doctor will instruct you in detail about how and when to administer insulin. You will also be provided with information on storing insulin at a safe place. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Common Miscarriage Causes

Hello I am Dr. Mohan Raut, a practicing gynecologist from last 27 years and partner of ICPRM, India's first immunotherapy Center for treatment of patients with repeated miscarriages, IVA failure, rod implantation failure.

Today I am going to discuss about various causes that lead to repeated miscarriages.

Miscarriage is a traumatic experience for a woman and when it happens repeatedly it can be devastating. The problem of repeated miscarriage is huge because it affects almost 1% of couples. So at any given moment the number of patients suffering from this problem is really high. There are five common causes of this problem, those are;

  • Genetic factor-  In this case, there are chromosomal or genetic abnormalities in the pregnancy and because of which the fetus can't grow, leading to miscarriage.
  • Structural problems-  Structural problem in uterus or the womb. Here there can be double uterus. There can be a curtain or septum within the uterus which leads to compromise in the space allowing pregnancy not to grow leading to miscarriage.
  • Endocrine group-  The problem arises in conditions such as diabetes, mellitus, thyroid ( hypothyroidism or hyperthyroidism), a condition called as PCOD or polycystic ovarian disease. These can lead to repeated miscarriages 
  • Infection Certain viral infections and infections like toxoplasma can infect the pregnancy leading to miscarriage.
  • Autoimmune factor or autoimmune disorders- This includes formation of antibodies against mother's own group and conditions like anti-thyroid antibodies, or antibodies against for a phospholipid part of the mother's body. The conditions known as collagen disorders are responsible for this and lead to repeated miscarriages.

Now when all these factors are tested, it has been found that almost 50% of couples with repeated miscarriages show that all these tests are normal. Then what is the cause in these couples? And in these couples the cause is found to be called as alloimmune factor or there is immunological rejection of pregnancy by the mother.

Now what is this alloimmune problem and how pregnancy is nature's miracle? I will discuss these in my next video.

For more information you can contact me on www.lybrate.com. Thank you.

Lybrate-user, looking at thyroid test result, it is quite normal. There is no hypothyroidism. Your bmi is 24.59 kgs/m2 (normal <23 kgs/m2). Showing a slight excess weight about 4 kgs. The reason for hair fall may some thing other than hypothyroidism. It is better to consult a skin specialist. Follow the guidelines that will be given. Thanks.

Bhavanaji, T2 DM is a familial disease, it does run in family. If both parents have diabetes then 75 % of children are likely to get it. If one of the parents have it, then 25 % may get it. Fortunately it is a preventable disease. That is if a modified life style is followed like regular exercise for more than 1 hour a day, maintaining normal body weight, take a balanced diet giving matching calories based on ideal body weight and avoid too much of sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods and pastries. Plus should consume a good deal of green leafy vegetables, salads and fruits. Refrain from alcohol and smoking. If this meticulously adhered to, then one can remain free from diabetes.
