Mam mujhe thyroid ki problem hai. Mai thrynorm 50 mg bhi le rahi hu maine apna blood tsh bhi test karaya hai report mai 8.72 ulu/ml.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Nehaji, With TSH level being8.72 milli units/ml, your hypothyroidism is not in control. It means the present dose of thyroxine is not enough. It has to be increased. Your BMI is 28.87 kg.M2, which shows you are over weight, Your Ideal Body Weight (IBW) should be 52 kg. If hypothyroidism is not in control then weight will keep going up, plus other symptoms will also come back. I am sure you are following instructions about taking thyroxine tablets - early in the morning on empty stomach, and nothing to be eaten there after for 2 hours. This is very essential to follow. Secondly you should avoid soy beans, soy containing products, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, radish, peanuts, mustard and coffee. Should consume more of green leafy vegetables, salads and fruits. Also use whole grain flour for chapati and roti, Plus exercise daily for at least 1 hour a day. Also should avoid deep fried foods, junk foods and pastries. Most important is to increase the dose of thyroxine and then check TSH level after 6 weeks, to see if the dose is adequate. TSH levels should be maintained between 3 to 4 milli units/ ml.

Fasting blood sugar depend on various hormonal factors and the amount of sugar produce by your liver during the night. And pp level depend upon what meal you have and the amount of insulin your body produces after meal.

Mr. lybrate-user, Gestational diabetes is a condition that occurs when a lady is pregnant and high blood glucose is detected during weeks of pregnancy. This is not seen in males. It is possible you may be having diabetes itself or a prediabetic condition. If blood glucose levels are mentioned then I may be able to say what is the situation. As regards acne, some times that problem does continue for quite some time. Thanks.

Hi it appears you have proliferative retinopathy, which can affect your vision permanently. So please consult a retina specialist immediately. Also see that your blood sugar is under very good control. This a major complication of diabetes. Do not waste any time and visit a good eye hospital today only. You have already delayed a lot.

if blood sugar level shows confirmed diabetes then treatment with drugs is absolutely necessary. Plus dietary restriction and regular exercise for more than 1 hour is a must. Another important aspect is to avoid becoming over weight, have a waist circumference of no more than 90 cms, bmi <23kg/m2. Your bmi is 29.29 is closer to grade 1 obesity, can be a major contributor for becoming diabetic. Your ideal body weight should be 54 kgs. Diabetes is occurring due to deficiency of insulin an important hormone necessary for carbohydrate, fat and protein metabolism. Lack of it or resistance to its action is the main reason for t2 dm. So this needs to be made available daily hence treatment has to go on for life time.

Mr. Lybrate-user, your present bmi is 25.94 kgs/m2 which is showing you are just over weight. Your ideal body weight should be 77 kgs, which means there is just 5 kgs extra weight. You can definitely control your weight by strictly planning the diet and exercise schedule. If you give me your exact diet from morning till dinner of a routine day, plus of a holiday and your exercise routine.

Hello iam 22 year old girl and I have a thyroid and I didn't concentrate my studies and I become very lazy. And I tried a home remedy dhaniya ka pani but it didn't work please help me.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You could feel tiredness and unusual fatigue die to thyroid problems. You need to go for treatment for the thyroid problem anyway. Dhaniya water will not affect this problem. In the meantime do some of these recommendations very faithfully: Daily exercise of at least half an hour is a must. Even if you go to a gym, ask for aerobic and/or callisthenic exercises with whatever else you are doing. A healthy body harbors a healthy mind. With regard to memory, it is very important that your brain and body is ideally rested to be able to recall whatever is required, rather comfortably. Puzzles pose problems to the brain that help it to use new pathways and neurons, which give the brain considerable exercise. It taxes the left brain to use logic to solve the myriad possibilities which other activities do not stimulate. Crosswords are excellent for vocabulary learning and use. Jigsaws and Rubik cube stimulate different permutations to finally settle on the most likely one. Picture completion and anagrams help approach problem solving from several angles. Do Sudoku, and memory co-relation activities and skills. Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber (whole grains, fruits and vegetables), nuts, avocado, eat dark chocolate, consume less of fat and use olive oil instead, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. You need to check out if you are stronger visual or auditory. The visual is a better mode than the auditory. However, if you combine the two modes, you will get the best concentration. Have a special place of learning, which should be well lit, with soft painted walls, well-ventilated, with no distractions. When you get bored, study by writing. If you repeat learning at least five to seven times, you will apparently remember for a longer time. Sit comfortably but do not slouch. The reading material should be of a fairly large print. Study at small intervals of about 40 minutes and then take a break or change the subject. Short-term memory is a faculty of the left brain, and long-term memory is a feature of the right brain. When people are stressed, they tend to favor the right brain and abandon the left brain, where short-term memory resides. So, it is really very simple: deal with the stress and activate left brain functions. Here are a few suggestions to activate left brain function: shut your left nostril and breathe, move your eyes from right to left and vice versa for at least half a minute at a time, and do callisthenic exercises with some form of counting, regularly. There is a new exercise called Super Brain Yoga, which is done by holding the right earlobe with your left thumb and index finger, and the left earlobe with your right hand’s thumb and index finger. In this position you must squat down and rise up and do this for five minutes every day. There are some memory enhancing techniques and study methods that your teacher will be able to guide you with. If your home life is full of distractions and stress, it is likely to affect your memory, adversely. In that case, I suggest that the family goes for counseling too. The following foods do help too: Blueberries, walnuts, turmeric, Spinach, tomatoes, broccoli, acorn squash, green tea, oily fish, boiled egg, turkey, apples, oatmeal, leafy greens, lentils, pumpkin seeds, avocado, cinnamon, thyme, sunflower seeds, and red wine. Avoid sugar and junk food.
