Mr. Lybrate-user, this could be a simple coincidence, because usually no pain killer can cause such a serious problem, unless it is an anaphylactic (very severe acute allergy). Plus there is no mention of her other ailments. She may have had some other ailments or conditions related to heart which is not mentioned. So no explaination can be given.

lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Usually sub-clinical hypothyroidism is not requiring any treatment. TSH level up 9.9 mU/L is considered as a subclinical level. But if a person has presence of troublesome symptoms of hypothyroidism including excess weight gain, then treatment is advocated. It is better if you get a Anti TPO antibody test also to if there presence of Hashimoto's Thyroiditis (HT). Because in HT at lower level of TSh also there are symptoms of hypothyroidism. As regards CRP there in not much of a worry. There is no cure for either subclinical or overt hypothyroidism. Only thing is to take regular thyroxine for lifetime once the disease is confirmed. If you have any doubts please come back. Thanks.

Hi librate user, nice to hear from you, to avoid getting diabetes you should keep a watch on your diet, exercise and body weight. If you don't have diabetes in your family, if you are eating healthy food and doing regular exercise and maintaining your weight, there are very little chances you will get diabetes. Regular exercise should include cycling/ swimming/ brisk walking / jogging / any other outdoor sports activity for at least 30-40 minutes per day, 6 days per week. Thank you.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the question. Based on your description there could be some problem with your thyroid gland. But if the doctor examining has not found anything serious, then there is no reason to worry about. In hypothyroidism particularly due to Hashimoto's Thyroiditis, the gland may have grown a bit or become nodular or firm. But there is unlikely to be a growth towards chest. Still if you are feeling so strongly, ask your your doctor to get an ultra sono graphy done, that will clarify your doubt. Once the condition is confirmed or clear, then further line of treatment can be decided. Thanks.

For diabetes follow a diet low in carbohydrate, low in fat and high in fibre. Avoid bakery products. Avoid too much rice and potato. Avoid fried stuff. Avoid chocolate, cakes, ice cream, soft drinks and fruit juices. Eat lots of vegetables. Walk for at least 30 minutes a day for 5 days in a week. Your after meal sugar is high. Check your fasting blood sugar also. Get yourself checked by a doctor to rule out diabetic neuropathy. If it is present than you will require treatment for that. Your diabetic medicine needs to increase.

In healthy people, the HbA1c level should be less than 6% (42 mmol/mol) of total hemoglobin. The term prediabetes is often used to describe a situation where the blood sugar level is higher than normal but not yet high enough to be classified as type 2 diabetes.Yes you need to use medicines by consulting your doctor.

Your blood sugar is still very high. You need a readjustment of the dose of your medicines. Avoid oily and sugar rich food. Do exercise daily.
