Mr. lybrate-user, When on treatment for hypothyroidism, it is necessary to bring TSH down to 3 to 4 mU/L, then only one will be freem from all the troublesome symptoms. Hence, if TSH is 6.5 mU/L, then it should be reduced to the value mentioned above. Therefore, there is a need to increase the dose of thyroxine being taken now. After increasing the dose TSH should be checked 6 weeks later to see if desired level is reached. Thanks.

Dear lybrate-user, diabetes treatment has got many options and each doctor chooses drug based on patient's age, gender and duration of diabetes. The final goal is sugar, bp and cholesterol control with protection of vital organs. If above-mentioned drugs are controlling your parameters with no side effects then you are on right treatment.

I am facing thyroid problem. It is 5.45 THS. Is it dangerous fraction? Which is its normal rage? Our family doctor advised me to take 1 tab daily in the morning for whole life. How can I heal it.

MD - General Medicine
General Physician, Delhi
Tsh value is slightly above normal range, different labs have different normal values. You must be taking levothyroxine, I advise you to continue it for lifetime since it doesn't have any side effects and it will prevent you from many complications arising due to thyroid problem if not taken regularly.

Mr asit kumar, fasting sugar 150 mg to 200 mg is high. What is the hba1c %? it appears that the anti diabetic treatment being taken is not adequate, may have to be increased. Secondly diabetes is called as a" silent killer, because there are hardly any symptoms noticed. But it affects almost every system in the body. Diabetes damages retina - leading to retinopathy, can lead to loss of vision. Damages small and large blood vessels affecting kidneys and heart. Of all the deaths occurring due to renal failure in india 25%are diabetic patients. Neuropathy affecting peripheral nerves and loss of sensation leading to foot ulceration and related problems. In india over one lack legs are amputated per year in diabetic patients. Looking at all these details it is necessary for you to take appropriate treatment. Please consult your doctor and change the drugs or add new ones. If you want me to guide please come in a private conversation with all the details, where I can prescribe specific treatment.

Lybrate-user, if hypothyroidism is not well controlled, if tsh levels are not in the normal range, then efforts to control weight do not succeed. So first thing is bring tsh levels down to 3 to 4 milli units, then work on reducing weight. So please check tsh levels and come back. Thanks.

Flax seed is a rich source of essential fatty acids, especially in the form of omega-3 fatty acids. The scientists recommend that people with thyroiditis consume between 1,000 mg and 1,500 mg of fatty acids per day. These fatty acids help to promote healthy hormone production and act as anti-inflammatory agents, although more research is necessary regarding the possible risks and benefits of consuming flax seed.

I have a border line sugar (fasting 107) and pre-diabetic condition (blood glucose level 6.3). Increeased cholestrol and triglycerides. Increased thryroid, uti 15-20 pus cells and esr 44. Do I need to start medicine for diabetes?

General Physician (AM)

Having diabetes makes high blood pressure and other heart and circulation problems more likely, because diabetes damages arteries and makes them targets for hardening (atherosclerosis). Atherosclerosis can cause high blood pressure, which if not treated, can lead to blood vessel damage, stroke, heart failure, heart attack, or kidney failure. You can consult me in private for detailed treatment which is available in biochemic system of medicine depending upon symptomatically. Eatng lots of garlic. If you cant have it get it homeopathically allium sativum (biochemic) nat phos 30x, avoid all types of fats and red meat.

How To Take Your Thyroid Medication
===============================
If you want to make sure that you are taking your thyroid medication properly, here are some guidelines to help.

Always check the prescription against what you receive. Don't allow generic substitutions.
Most doctors feel that taking thyroid hormone on an empty stomach allows for maximum absorption.
Many practitioners advise that you allow at least one hour before eating, because it allows for maximum absorption.
Be consistent about a high-fiber diet. If you start or stop eating high-fiber, get your thyroid rechecked, because it may change your absorption.
Many experts recommend you take vitamins or supplements with iron at least two to three hours apart from thyroid hormone. Iron can interfere with thyroid hormone absorption if taken too close together.
Be careful about taking calcium and calcium-fortified orange juice at the same time as thyroid hormone. Allow at least 2-3 hours apart, so absorption is not affected.
Don't take antacids within two hours of thyroid hormone. Allow at least 2-3 hours apart, so absorption is not affected.
Watch for interactions with antidepressants & thyroid hormone. Zoloft, Paxil and Prozac can make thyroid meds more or less effective. Talk to your doctor.
Don't stop taking thyroid hormone when you're pregnant or breastfeeding. It's necessary for you and your baby's health. Talk to your doctor about adjusting to the right dosage.

Thank you for writing to us. Please note the following in respect to your queries: vitamin b12 deficiency can happen if you have certain conditions, such as: atrophic gastritis pernicious anemia conditions affecting the small intestine, such as crohn's disease, celiac disease, bacterial growth, or a parasite heavy drinking immune system disorders, such as graves' disease or lupus long-term use of acid-reducing drugs. You can also get vitamin b12 deficiency if you're a vegan (meaning you don't eat any animal products, including meat, milk, cheese, and eggs). Treatment for vitamin b12 deficiency: if you have pernicious anemia or a problem with its absorption, you'll need to replace vitamin b12 by injection initially and then continued injections, high doses of an oral replacement, or nasal therapy for life. If the issue is that you don't eat animal products, you can change your diet to include vitamin b12-fortified grains, a supplement or b12 injections, or a high-dose oral vitamin b12 if you are deficient. Causes of vitamin d deficiency: vitamin d deficiency can occur for a number of reasons: you don't consume the recommended levels of the vitamin over time. Your exposure to sunlight is limited. You have dark skin. Your kidneys cannot convert vitamin d to its active form. Your digestive tract cannot adequately absorb vitamin d. You are obese. Treatment for vitamin d deficiency treatment for vitamin d deficiency involves getting more vitamin d -- through diet and supplements. If you don't spend much time in the sun or always are careful to cover your skin (sunscreen inhibits vitamin d production), you should speak to your doctor about taking a vitamin d supplement, particularly if you have risk factors for vitamin d deficiency. If you still need any help get back to me. Thanks.

My blood uric acid level is 7.How to control the level to normal. What to eat and what not. I am also loosing weight.

PDDM, MHA, MBBS
General Physician, Nashik
My blood uric acid level is 7.How to control the level to normal. What to eat and what not. I am also loosing weight.
The first thing you should do is to eat foods that are high in fiber, This is because fiber rich foods absorb uric acid from the blood. Your kidneys then 'throw' out the excess uric acid. Try to eat Oatmeal, Spinach, cauliflowers and Isabgol in milk if possible.  Please use olive oil to cook your food. Kindly avoid vegetable oils because they become unhealthy when heated twice. This leads to rancid fat in the body. These destroy vitamin E, that in turn controls uric acid levels. Olive oil also curbs uric acid by itself.  Vitamin C chewable tablets taken 500 mg daily lower uric acid levels within 4 to 8 weeks.  Try to stop intake of sweets, cakes and pastries. Saturated fats are bad for you.  Many fruits have got potent anti-oxidant properties, like celery seeds, grapes and tomatoes, and these prevent harmful toxins from attacking your organs - releasing uric acid.

Mr. Lybrate-user, if she has hypothyroidism and is on treatment then tsh level should be between 3 to 4 milli units/ml. When tsh is is normal, most of the symptoms do disappear. As regards darkening of the skin you may please consult a competent dermatologist.

Refined Cereals are Worst for Diabetics :

Sweetened breakfast cereals can cause a spike in blood sugar, but the response can vary. "Blood sugar reactions to cereal vary greatly from person to person," Even oatmeal—which is recommended as a good choice by the ADA—can be a problem if it's the sweetened, instant type.

Have this instead: Swap breakfast cereal for a high-protein meal instead, suggests Try an egg white omelet with vegetables and turkey or Canadian bacon with a small slice of low-carb (7 grams) bread. Cholesterol in the yolk may contribute to a higher risk of heart disease and diabetes, which makes egg whites a healthier option. Steel cut and traditional oatmeal, cooked slowly, is a better choice than other types of oatmeal as it is less likely to spike blood sugar. Small portions and adding protein can help.

Mr. Lybrate-user, please tell me is she on treatment with thyronorm tablet even now? please understand in hypothyroidism only treatment is to take thyroxine (thyronorm) for whole life. There is no other option. Trying other medicines is a waste of time and money. The dose of thyronorm should be such that tsh levels are brought between 3 to 4 milli units, then all the symptoms will be in control. She also should avoid soy beans, soy containing products, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, radish, peanuts, mustard and coffee. She should consume more of green leafy vegetables and salads and fruits, use whole grain flour for chapati and roti, no maida. Alos she should follow the dosage instructions of taking the tablet early morning on empty stomach and nothing to be taken after that for 2 hours. She also should exercise daily to avoid weight increase. Efforts reduce weight and other symptoms will be successful only if tsh levels are maintained as mentioned above. Another important thing as she is only 25 years, later after marriage if she desires to have a baby then tsh levels have to be maintained around 0.1 to 2.0 milli units prior to pregnancy and in the same range during pregnancy. So her only option to get rid of symptoms of hypothyroidism is to take correct dose of thyronorm. Thanks for the question.
