I am 27 years old female. I am hypothyroid from past 2 years and taking Thyronorm 50 mg. I got my TSH, T3, T4 levels tested today and my TSH levels were at 0.109 which are below the optimal levels (0.555 to 4.78). T3 and T4 are within the normal range. I went to a homeopath and he decreased the dose to 25 mg along with he gave 3x. I wanted to know isint both these doses further reduce my TSH as it is already below the normal level?

Hello, Madam, having TSH level at 0.109 mU/L is fine. It not excessively low. In fact it good to have the a well controlled TSH, to be free from all the symptoms of hypothyroidism. I am not aware of what is 2x tab. In treatment of hypothyroidism only effective drug is thyroxine. No other drug has any role. Homeopathy does not have any drug at all. If you have any doubts please do come back. Thanks.

Hello, if your mother has Type 1 Diabetes then there are good chances of the inheritance, you may catch it in the early age. If your mother is having type 2 Diabetes then there are chances of the inheritance but you can save yourself with the modification of your life style. If you are following a good lifestyle then the chances of getting Diabetes are very lessen.

I am 25 yrs old girl. I have thyroid problem. I have been very slim. So what should I do?

MBBS, MD - Internal Medicine
Internal Medicine Specialist, Faridabad
pl. tell us reports of your thyroid..then we can advice you. Drink more water, high-carbohydrate foods such as potatoes, rice, pasta and bread. You can take Nutrient-rich foods that improve your health may also benefit your thyroid gland, antioxidant-rich fruits and vegetables more plenty of water: Blueberries, tomatoes, bell peppers, and other foods rich in antioxidants can improve overall health and benefit the thyroid gland. Eating foods high in B vitamins, like whole grains, may also help. Selenium: Tiny amounts of selenium are needed for enzymes that make thyroid hormones to work properly. Eating selenium-rich foods, such as sunflower seeds or Brazil nuts, can be beneficial. Tyrosine: This amino acid is used by the thyroid gland to produce T3 and T4. Taking a supplement may help,

My dad has diabetes then what I would have to do for him to feel easy and fit so what I have to do.
Mr Umar, If he has diabetes then appropriate treatment should be started, which I am sure you might have already initiated the treatment too. If not then start it now. Along with that diet restriction and regular exercise for 1 hour a day. He should avoid sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods, aerated sweetened drinks and pastries. Consume more of green leafy vegetables, salads.Should refrain from alcohol and smoking. If you want more specific guidelines please come in a private conversation with all the above details including weight, height and dietary pattern and extent of exercise being done.

Ideally to know whether a person is a diabetic or not blood sugar levels have to be checked after 12 hours of fasting (preferably in the morning) that is called as fasting sugar levels and after 2 hours of meal that is called as PP. If the sugar levels in these 2 tests are above normal then there are chances that a person is diabetic. Sugar levels checked anytime of the day are random and doesn't give the exact picture to diagnose a diabetic patient.

My father has detected high sugar level. What diet should he take at initial stage?
Once diabetes is detected apart from taking proper it is essential to take suitable diet which will depend on weight, level of physical activity and sugar levels. So it is usually a patient specific diet. General things to be kept in mind are use whole grain flour (n0 maida), very little oil, more green salads, less of potatoes, use multiple grains etc.

Kindly get x-ray both foot ap and lateral view send the scan copy of x-ray to me, as per history it is not related to thyroid, or uric acid. It is most likely---spur of calcanium--advised x-ray both calcanium (heal) review after x-ray.

lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Since you are on treatment for hypothyroidism, it is essential to maintain TSH level around 3 to 4 mU/L to be free from all the symptoms. Hence, it is clear that present dosage of thyroxine (75 mcg) is not adequate. Please increase it by 12.5 mcg and then check TSH after 6 to 8 weeks, to see if the desired level is reached. At that level all the symptoms will disappear. Thanks.

MBBS, MD
Endocrinologist, Delhi
You have not mentioned whether yoiu are having hypo or hyperthyroidism. Hypothyroidism is treated with thyroid hormone ,dose of whih is guided by TSH level in blood indefinitly. Hyperthyroidis is treated with antithyroid mediines or surgery or radioactive iodine and you have to be under supervision of a physician.

The dose of Thyroid meds depends upon your Lab parameters (Free T3, FreeT4, TSH, etc) and on symptoms. I would recommend a detailed consultation and comprehensive work up if you want optimal results.

Give him natural and nutritious small meals every 4 hrs. ( Avoid processed and packaged or outside foods ). Physiotherapy can also be helpful for him to recover as much as possible. You can also try Homeopathy as it can help natural healing without any side-effects.
