I tend to suffer from hypothyroidism. However, recent tests show that the levels are well within range. Despite of it, I tend to feel feeble, weak and fragile. Since past one month, I am feeling dizzy despite for sleeping for 7-8 hours and still tend to oversleep being unaware of the reasons behind it. Kindly provide the remedy and I shall be highly thankful to you.

Mr. lybrate-user, It would have been better had you mentioned the actual TSH values, because that would have given a clear idea as to what is referred as normal. If TSH is between 3 to 4 mU/L, then only all the symptoms are in check. Thanks.

Hello, If you are on thyroxine tablets with adequate dosage and if TSH is in the range of 3 to 4 mU/L, then all the symptoms related to hypothyroidism are in check. Secondly please do not keep thinking that your memory has gone down, because thinking repeatedly like that it self gives negative signals to your brain. Instead say you have good memory and you do remember everything very well. Hypothyroidism if badly controlled may cause such problems. Thanks.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Your thyroid test results are normal. There is no reason to worry. It is important to control your blood glucose effectively with FBG < 100 mg, PP 150 to 160 mg & HbA1c% <6.8. That will help in keeping fit and fine. Thanks.

IVF - Why Does It Fail?

M.Sc, MD, MBBS
IVF Specialist, Delhi
IVF - Why Does It Fail?

Pregnancy is not simple as you think. IVF is a result of various factors acting together. The most important requirements for an IVF to be successful are a functional sperm, healthy egg and a uterus that has the capability for the embryo to get implanted in it. Although these are the biological factors, there are several other technical factors too that contribute to the success of IVF.

These include the use of proper techniques, a clean and proper environment in the lab and the quality of the specialist. Only when all these factors are perfect and unquestionable that IVF becomes successful. Here are some of the factors that lead to IVF failure.

Abnormalities in the egg: The human egg has a tendency to get destroyed with time. It is because in women, with age the spindle apparatus is damaged which leads to unequal distribution of the chromosomes in the egg. Thus the eggs become abnormal. Another reason is that the oocyte is very sensitive. It easily gets affected by the presence of free radicals. Even the presence of reactive species of oxygen can lead to a damage of the oocyte. Not only this, but other metabolic products also create the same effect on the oocyte thus producing a non-viable embryo. According to a research, a huge number of oocyte ranging from 25 to 40% usually get damaged.

Abnormalities in the sperm: The sperm has various characteristics that add to the success of the IVF. The first and foremost thing is the sperm has specific receptors at its head because of which they can bind to the egg. If the receptors are not present the action of binding would not be possible and the sperm would be unsuccessful to fertilize the egg. Even if the sperms have bound properly and have injected its contents into the egg, a chromosomal mixing takes place at this stage. This chromosomal mixing would not be possible if the sperm is abnormal. And it has been proven that sperms have a tendency of being more genetically abnormal than eggs.

The wrong Embryo being selected: Sometimes IVF ends up as a failure due to the selection of the wrong embryo. Medical science has still not developed to that range where it can distinguish between and abnormal and a normal embryo and due to this very reason the embryo selected may turn out to be abnormal leading to the failure of IVF.

Apart from what has been mentioned above, lab conditions do play a very important role. If the pH, humidity, and other factors like light are not up to the mark then IVF is bound to be a failure. Fertilization being such a delicate process can be influenced even by the slightest alterations. If you wish to discuss any specific problem, you can consult a gynaecologist.

Sir, what are the symptoms of thyroid can you please give me a perfect report on this.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Hi there are no symptoms for thyroid because it is a normal gland present is all of us, producing hormone thyroxine. Deficiency of this hormone causes hypothyroidism and excess causes hyperthyroidism. Of these hypothyroidism is more common. This causes weight gain, slow heart rate, sluggishness, tired feeling, fatigue, joint pains, intolerance to cold, dry skin and hair, hair loss, in ladies there is irregularity of menstrual periods, excess flow, difficulty in speech, inability to concentrate, anxiety and depression etc.

Full body pain. Diabetics, cholesterol, weak eyesight, chickengunia two years ago. Age 60 years recommend home medicine.

MBBS, DGO (cal)
General Physician,
I don't know any home medicine. But remedy what you can use is reduce your body weight, do regular physical exercise with 45 mins of aerobics / brisk walking, dietary management and monitor diabetes control. Lipid insatiability can be accepted in diabetes. Monitoring for control of diabetes complications, including eye complications like diabetic cataract or retinopathy, are also very much important. Medicine part shall be taken care by your diabetologist. I believe your body pain shall go with exercise gradually.

Hi doctor, I am suffering from high uric acid 7.2. For this I am taking homeopathic medicine (mother tincture urtica urens). But there is no visible results. Please suggest some good allopathic medicine to reduce my uric acid.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Mr. Lybrate-user, to control uric acid (if raised and having any symptoms like pain in joints or gout), then there is a need for drugs to reduce uric acid or excrete it. Plus there may be a need for pain killers. If there are no symptoms at all and only blood shows raised uric acid, then there is no reason to worry about. You can control intake of foods which are rich in purines like organ meat, red meat, certain sea foods such as herring, trout, haddock, scallops, sardines, salmon, anchovies, mussels, mushrooms and shell fish. Also avoid alcohol and sweetened drinks, high fat milk products. You can consume a good deal of green leafy vegetables, fruits, and eggs, milk products etc. This will help in reducing uric acid.

Is it advisable to start medicine post diagnosis of thyroid. There is general perception that thyroid can be cured by developing a healthy lifestyle and if medicines are started it has to be continued for lifetime.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Mr. Lybrate-user, I am not aware of what you have mentioned about hypothyroidism treatment. This a hormone deficiency condition. Since thyroxine is required daily for brain development and functioning, plus for every single metabolic reaction in the body, it has to be made available. Adapting modified lifestyle is not going to stimulate thyroid gland to produce thyroxine. So I am not aware from where this information is generated. If hypothyroidism is diagnosed immediate treatment has to be initiated or else there can serious consequences. Treatment has to be for lifetime. There is no option.
