If your TSH starts increasing, then it is advisable to start the treatment. Meanwhile check it every 6 months to see if it is increasing. Also try to avoid any foods with artificial colours, flavours & preservatives, non veg, maida products. Try to keep your bowels clean by consuming lots of fresh fruits and vegetables. Consume non iodised salt or better rock salt. It will help you.

Lybrate-user, if your hypothyroidism is in good control, with tsh values around 2 to 3 milli nuits /l, then there is every possibility of getting pregnant. It is essential to have tsh values in the of 2 to 3 milli units/l, for conception, development of fetus and normal outcome of pregnancy. So give a look at tsh level. Thanks.

My mother 56 years old, wt. 77kg, tsh 12.55,(free t4 level not done) given tab. Eltroxin 25mcg after 8 days tsh comes down to 6.57 and free t4 level 0.76 should I continue 25 mcg or increase to 50?

Dear, tsh should be checked only after 8 weeks. If it comes between 1 & 2, the dose of eltroxin is adequate. If it is low or high then the dose of eltro xin needs to be changed.

I am 42 years old female. I have type 2 diabetes for the past 10 yrs. I have been taking oral medication for the past 10 yrs. But now from the past 2 years doctor prescribed insulin. Since I'm afraid to take insulin I'm still continuing oral medicines. Please could any doctor help me understand whether is it safe or harmful.

Hello, Madam, the reason for suggesting Insulin treatment is that with oral drugs blood glucose control may not be proper. Ideally when in control FBS should be closer to 100 mg, PP 150 to 160 mg & HbA1c% <6.8. If there is persistent hyperglycemia even with oral drugs, then Insulin is the only option. I am sure you are aware, diabetes occurs mainly due to insulin deficiency plus resistance to its action (T2 DM). In fact safest and most effective drug to treat diabetes is Insulin injections. It helps to achieve excellent blood glucose control. If you have any doubts please do come back. Thanks.

How often should someone go for a diabetes and liver check up at the age of 25?
If your blood sugar checkup shows normal levels and you have no family history and are active enough, then you can get it checked once a year. In case of liver function tests too if you are not having known problems, a non alcoholic and tests have come normal then ther is no heed to repeat them often. Once in 2 - 3 years or if any specific problem has been noticed, then tests may be repeated.

Sir, taking dry fruits almonds, walnuts is good but these also have fair amount of carbs. Ideally daily 5 almonds, 25 grams of walnuts are recommended. Excess is not much helpful, will add to blood sugar. Most important aspect of the treatment is proper anti diabetic drugs ether the oral ones or insulin injections. In addition dietary control and exercises.

The right thing for you is visit a doctor in person. There are many options to control and manage diabetes. Before you start on any treatment, correct your diet and lifestyle. Take up activity, yoga or any kind of exercise. Take time for yourself and find out what could have triggered your diabetes. In 99% of cases, some stressful event triggers onset of diabetes in a person. It is true for any disease for that matter and it has been proved each and every time in our clinics. Resolve that problem if you can. After having tried and tested various combinations of the above, if yet your sugar levels ars high, you can try homeopathy. We have been able to reverse the symptoms and reports and patients have gone back to no medicines - both allopathy and homeopathy. Give it a thought!
