Hi when one is on treatment for hypothyroidism, to achieve good control tsh levels should be around 3 to 4 milli units /l. If that is achieved then most symptoms are in control and weight reduction is also possible. As regards the other tablets particularly lpuineme, fdson they are really not essential, given as vitamin supplement. D3 is some times needed. But most important for you is to achieve strict control of hypothyroidism. Thanks.

I'm 50 years old and had a mild heart attack 15 days back and treated by angioplasty. Actually I had two blocks one 100%and the other 80%. The 100 %block got cured naturally by itself. (automatic bypass). Now the 80% was treated by angioplasty. Now i'm perfectly normal. Should I avoid smoking completely or can I have 2 cigarettes a day. Will it affect the stent?

Hello based on your blood sugar levels, you don't have diabetes. For kidney function you need to get done blood urea and creatinine levels and ultrasound of abdomen and pelvis. For heart function you need to get ecg and an echo and see a heart specialist.

Dear Lybrateuser, -As per the reports the main artery supplying the heart is 90% blocked -follow the advise of the treating cardiologist as the bypass surgery is required to bring the blood flow to almost normal by restoring the the blood vessels to their normal state, it is a life saving procedure which he should undergo as soon as possible.

Dear Lybrateuser, - Your chest pain is due to acidity - follow some dietary precautions, avoid spicy, fried & junk food, restrict tea, coffee intake to not more than 1-2 cups a day, do not skip meals, have meals on time, chew your food well, have 4-5 small meals rather than three large meals, do not lye down after meals for at least an hour, have dinner 2-3 hrs before bed time avoid aerated. Drinks citrus fruits, chocolate, mint - have 8- 10 glasses of water per day - have syrup gelusil, 2 teaspoonful half hour after every meal three times a day - get your ECG done to rule out any other problem.

Hi. Sad to hear about the incidence. Here I would like to say that bypass surgery is a very big and serious surgery. Yes, it is performed on many many patients everyday, and most of the patients recover from the surgery very well. But like any other major surgery, there is around 1% risk of serious outcomes of this surgery, like death or paralysis. To find out the exact cause of sudden demise when one is recovering well from the surgery is very difficult to comment. But the most common reasons are thromboembolism of lungs artery, serious cardiac rhythm abnormality (arrythmias), and unknown cause. Take care.

Good to know about basic tests being normal. Get eyes tested too. Eat well a low carb and low fats diet but rich in natural vitamins like seasonal vegetables and fruits according to your constitution, exercise in moderation. You are overweight for your height. Reduce weight @ 5 kg per month by diet and exercise only-no health supplements to reduce weight or any medicines. Extra weight does cause blackouts and dizziness, because the body has to put in more efforts to digest food. At 27 you can change your eating habits for life. Reduce sugar, salt & fats to bare minimum but do take good fats like a spoon of desi ghee/ butter and a katori of assorted nuts, which will give you good fats plus proteins. Do take toned milk & curds as simple proteins, write back after a month. Ive.
