Mr. Lybrate-user, hypothyroidism does increase weight. But other symptoms also are there like lethargy, tiredness, early fatigue, intolerance to cold, slow heart rate, swelling of face and lower limbs, joint pains, inability to concentrate, difficulty in speech, anxiety and depression etc. Looking at your height and weight you are having a grade 3 obesity with 44.54 kg /m2. This is probably not due to only hypothyroidism, you are probably having this (over weight problem) condition since a long time. This is a seriuos situation, please look inti it, also bet your thyroid test done to check if hypothyroidism is present. Thanks for the question.

Lybrate-user, if you are having hypothyroidism and taking treatment, then it is essential to bring tsh levels down to <2 mu/l, otherwise conception may not occur. Further through out pregnancy tsh should be maintained as follows: 1st trimester 0.1 to 2 mu/l, 2nd trimester 0.3 to 3 mu/l & 3rd trimester 0.3 to 3.1 mu/l. If tsh levels go higher than above mentioned, then fetal development is affected, miscarriage may occur, pregnancy out come at full term may not good. So please take care of the tsh levels. Thanks.

Dear you need to make sure that your diet & exercise are regular. Inspite of that if your sugars are not under control, then you need to add some other medications or if not then insulin. The dose of your current medications is maximum &will not help much further by increasing its dose. Please consult your doctor for the same.

Hi I am 39 years old male and I am diabetic since 3-4 years. I consulted one local Ayurveda doctor for this but the medicine given by him didn't make any change. After 1-2 months of taking the medicine given by him I got erectile dis-function and as he spoke about erectile dis-function at me without any situation I suspect that because of his medicine I got the problem. I am doing physical exercise like walking everyday and away from sweets. Please suggest me a good medicine for diabetes and erectile dis-function.

If you have type1 diabetes, then you need to take insulin life long. However if you are fed up of insulin injections then you could go for an insulin pump. It is an expensive propositionas the device would cost approx 2 lacs & the running cost for the same would come to 5000 to 7000 rs. Every month. If you are fine with it then it will help you.

I am suffering from hypothyroid problem.  How can I solve that problem ?
by take medicine....do test also vit.D. Foods to Avoid Many common foods and supplements contain compounds that interfere with thyroid functions. In general, it’s best to avoid the following foods and supplements: Soy: Studies suggest that phytoestrogens in soybeans and soy-rich foods may inhibit the activity of an enzyme that makes the thyroid hormones. One study found that women who consumed soy supplements were three times more likely to develop hypothyroidism. Iodine-rich foods: Some forms of hypothyroidism are caused by a lack of sufficient iodine. In such cases, using iodized salt or iodine-enriched foods can be beneficial. But eating too much iodine can have the opposite effect and suppress thyroid gland activity. Check with your doctor before taking supplements. Iron and calcium supplements: Taking iron or calcium supplements can also change the effectiveness of many thyroid medications. High-fiber foods: Although a high-fiber diet is usually recommended, too much fiber may interfere with the absorption of thyroid medicines. Certain vegetables: Cruciferous vegetables that are rich in fiber like broccoli, cabbage, spinach, kale, and Brussels sprouts can inhibit thyroid drug absorption. Reducing the amounts of such produce in your diet may help. Caffeine, tobacco, and alcohol can also influence the effectiveness of thyroid medicine. Ask your doctor for tips on how to regulate or reduce your consumption Foods to Eat Nutrient-rich foods that improve your health may also benefit your thyroid gland, including: Antioxidant-rich fruits and vegetables: 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, but ask your doctor beforehand.

The answer is homoeopathy. I do not force you for it but I will advise you to give it a try so as to get rid of life long medicines and that too with side effects. Although you may find it difficult to take regular doses of homoeo medicines daily as compared to one tablet of allopathic medicine that you are taking but the end with homoeopathic medicines is always fruitful and moreover you will be relieved of life long medicines and will be fully treated in 2-3 years depending upon your thyroid levels and amount of effort that you are putting in, if you get the right treatment in the hands of a right homoeo doctor----------so choice is yours whether to go with life long homoeopathic medicines and its side effects or homoeopathic medicines for 2-3 years without any side effects------------

Mr hyperthyroidism can be cured by using radio active iodine, which is taken up by thyroid gland and hyperactive thyroid stops functioning. Usually one dose is sufficient but occasionally a repeat dose may have to be given. It is generally very safe drug. Since it stops thyroid function, that has to supplemented by thyroxine tablets daily. Once hyperactivity is controlled other problems will be in check.

Random sugar 120 is not suggestive of any certain diabetic control. As it is in normal level Diabetes, often referred to by doctors as diabetes mellitus, describes a group of metabolic diseases in which the person has high blood glucose (blood sugar), either because insulin production is inadequate, or because the body's cells do not respond properly to insulin, or both. It is a difficult 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), & HbA1C (inform me) 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. There are different diet plans of varying calories for each person depending on his activity & life style. For diabetes, hypertension (high BP) and many long-term illness 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 with all details like your daily eating pattern and medicines you take. I assure you a proper guidance.
