Can a 3x4 mm thyroid cyst cause dysphagia and hoarseness I have inflammation in lrynx asnseen in laryngoscopy. Or this thyroid nodule is metastasis of another thyroid cancer may be oeaophaegal or laryngeal. What test/scan can confirm if metastasis has occurred? Please suggest.

Yes, a large cyst can cause problem in swallowing. But thyroid cyst and inflammation in larynx are two different things. If you have inflammation at larynx, it will cause difficulties in the things you have mentioned. Biopsy can be done if it to know if its cancerous or not. If its cancerous, you may go for ct scan too.

Does the homeopathy medicine Phytolacca Berry really help in weight loss? What, apart from generic suggestions such as exercising and restricted use of sugar.

Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Mr. Lybrate-user, phytolecca berry is claimed to be useful in weight reduction. But clinical evidence is hardly there. There are no specific clinical trials showing the beneficial effect. So if one wants to try it is left on the belief that this medicine works.

I have thyroid. I take thyronorm 75 regularly. Can thyroid be cured with homeopathy or any other treatment?

MBBS, MD - Internal Medicine
Internal Medicine Specialist, Faridabad
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, avoid oily foods,junk foods, go for walk. Tests every 3 to 6 months.

How Does Thyroid Affect Pregnancy?

MBBS, MS - Obstetrics and Gynaecology
Gynaecologist, Noida
How Does Thyroid Affect Pregnancy?

Thyroid disease is a condition that affects the thyroid gland, a small, wing shaped gland that secretes the thyroid hormone. The thyroid is controlled by the pituitary gland and its proper functioning. These thyroid hormones are responsible for the metabolism of the body and a slight tweak in the levels can also lead to the onset of thyroid diseases like hyperthyroidism (excessive production of the thyroid hormone) or hypothyroidism (inadequate production of the thyroid hormone), as well as other conditions. The thyroid hormone has a crucial role to play as far as pregnancy is concerned. Let us find out how.

  1. Estrogen and hCG: There are two distinct hormones that are related to pregnancy, the human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) and estrogen. These hormones can cause an increase in the thyroid hormone levels that are contained in one's blood. The hCG is usually created by the placenta and is quite similar to the TSH or thyroid hormone. The hCG is known to mildly stimulate the thyroid gland, which causes greater production of the thyroid hormone. Also, once the estrogen in the body increases, it can lead to higher levels of globulin, which is a thyroid binding substance. This is a protein that takes the thyroid hormone to the blood and is also known as thyroxine binding globulin. When these hormones change on a less than normal basis, it can lead to difficulties in the thyroid reading during pregnancy.
  2. Nervous System: The thyroid gland is known to be especially important for the development of the baby's brain and nervous system. In fact, the thyroid hormone supplied by the mother in the first trimester will have a direct bearing on the development and growth of the foetus. This thyroid hormone travels through the mother's placenta. Once the first trimester has been completed, the baby will start to produce its own thyroid hormone.
  3. Enlarged Thyroid during Pregnancy: While the thyroid does enlarge slightly during one's pregnancy, it cannot really be detected merely with a physical examination. While a noticeable enlarged thyroid may point at the advent of thyroid disease, it will need to be properly evaluated as these problems are difficult to diagnose during pregnancy. This is due to the high levels of thyroid in the bloodstream during pregnancy, as well as an increase in fatigue and the other symptoms that are most commonly associated with thyroid disease.
  4. Hyperthyroidism in Pregnancy: This condition during pregnancy can cause congestive heart failure as well as the risk of preeclampsia, which can cause the rise of blood pressure during pregnancy.
  5. Hypothyroidism in Pregnancy: This can cause anaemia due to a low count of red blood cells which prevents proper oxygen supply for the baby.

My dad has diabetes for many years. But never check up any kidney test. But 1 month ago when his diabetes test results come I also saw that he had also done urine test and his creatine level was 1.0 mg/dl. Bt one result disturbed my mind that is his Albumin to creatinine ratio was 930 mg. Is it possible? When Normal peoples just have 30 mg. Does he have kidney problem?

BHMS, MD - Homeopathy
Homeopath, Navi Mumbai
May b this is a effect of diabetes on kidneys that he is loosing albumin(type of protein) through urine. Creatinine is still normal so he has fair chances of recovery. Dietary control is most important. Start yoga, meditation. Listening to instrumental music also helps in diabetes. Morning walk and walking bare foot on grass is advisable. Start homoeopathic treatment, u can consult privately.

Dear sir your blood sugar levels are high. You definitely need anti diabetic treatment. I will advise you to go for allopathic treatment to get better control and prevent complications of diabetes. Your pain in joints may automatically subside when sugar levels come to normal range. If you are obese and hypertensive then additional treatment and lifestyle modifications will be required. Please contact physician near you. Your lipid profile looks at borderline. If you are obese or overweight then statin therapy is required.

First of all you need to cut the intake of sodium (if you are suffering from high blood pressure cos you have not mentioned whether you are hypotensive or hypertensive) and carbs in your diet. Then include yoga n exercise in your daily regimen. It is helpful for both blood pressure n diabetes. There r many yogasanas the help in stimulating the pancreas to keep the blood glucose levels in control. Cut down the rice intake for dinner n can have in the afternoon. Here are few tips which can help you keep your blood sugar levels at control. 1. Take fenugreek seeds 1 tspn in the morning on empty stomach 30 min before food. 2. Mix equal quantity of turmeric powder n amla powder n take it with warm water in the morning 30 min before breakfast. 3. Take cinnamon tea thats cinnamon soaked in hot water for 10 mind drink this 1 hour before breakfast and dinner.

I am 32 years male and since last 5 years I am diabetic and I am insulin dependent but my sugar level is not coming normal inspire of regular walk and work out. Please suggest.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
It is not as easy task to control blood sugar in the desired normal range. Whatever we eat is metabolised to sugar in the body to provide energy for our daily activities. For the absolute control, one has to monitor his / her blood sugar at regular intervals (self-monitoring of blood glucose? smbg). Though difficult, this can be done by a glucometer and keep a record. Get an idea of fasting sugar (fbs) and 2 hours after food (ppbs) and check before dinner and after every major food. The basic idea is to reduce the food intake to 1/3 of what you take now. The dictum of sugar control is diet, exercise, diet + medicine and at later stage medicine+ insulin will be needed. For sugar control there is the need for regular advice and follow up. Just one time consultation or advice is not enough to guide a diabetic in scientifically & medically correct manner. For giving you regular follow up you ask me privately with all details like your daily eating pattern and medicines you take. I assure you a proper guidance. If you keep in touch. Www. Lybrate.

I like sweets wery much Please tell me How to maintain sugar level from the younger age?

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Mr. Lybrate-user, there is nothing wrong in liking sweets and even eating them. Diabetes does not coe because of eating sweets, but due to deficiency of insulin or resistance to its action or both, particularly in t2 diabetes. T1 diabetes occurs in those whose pancreas (beta cells) do not produce any insulin. One needs to be more careful if parent have t2 dm, as chances of getting diabetes increase very much. Few things need to be done to prevent getting t2 dm like: regular exercise daily for more than 1 hour, maintaining normal weight, consuming healthy diet, more green leafy vegetables, salads and fruits. Avoiding deep fried foods, junk foods, aerated sweetened drinks, fructose corn syrup containing products, highly processed foods, high fat milk products. Also refraining from alcohol and smoking. Basically maintaing a healthy lifestyle is necessary.
