Lybrate-user, most of the symptoms of hypothyroidism including lack of energy and weight increase will be in check once tsh levels are brought down to 3 to 4 mu/l. So you will have to check tsh levels after 6 weeks of treatment, if levels are down to as mentioned above, then present dose is adequate if levels are still high then there is a need for an increase in the dose of thyroxine. Plus you have grade 1 obesity with a bmi of 32.14 kgs / m2 (normal <23 kg / m2). This also adds to the problem. Hence, apart from regular treatment and diet control you will have to work to reduce weight (ideal body weight 67 kgs). Thanks.

Normal Blood Sugars. A normal fasting (no food for eight hours) blood sugar level is between 70 and 99 mg/dL. A normal blood sugar level two hours after eating is less than 140 mg/dL. You did not mentioned that this blood sugar level is fasting/ random or after meal I can guide you about your report if you are able to tell me that how many hour before you have taken your meal before giving blood sample

Losing weight and keeping it off, is not an easy task and often we are frustrated by failed attempts at doing so. The cause of such failure, mostly, is not making the attempt in a comprehensive and disciplined manner. A comprehensive lifestyle modification program for weight loss not only helps you lose weight but also leads to significant betterment of blood sugar, lipids, bp levels etc. And thus reduces your health risks of diabetes and cvd but also make you feel more in control of your life. Therefore, if you have not been able to lose weight on your own, should consider getting into one of these. The components of such a program should be the following: diet modification and calorie restriction: the diet plan you should follow should be driven by the following principles: it should be aligned to your eating preferences in terms of food and frequency of eating, as much as possible ; no diet plan (low fat or low carb, 4-5 meals a day or more or less frequent meals etc.) has been prov.

I am both a registered dietitian and a doctor who will help you in losing your weight. Let me know your food intake details. The best diet is one which is healthy and well balanced with foods from all the food groups, and one which is varied and that you can stick to weight loss on some diets can be dramatic in the short term, but there's more of a chance of rebound weight gain. Set yourself a realistic target and aim to lose between (0.5-1.0kg) a week I being a registered dietitian strongly accommodate the patients own preferences without the patient feeling that they are on a diet not compromising the weight management goals. Don't fall for self dieting or fad diets availiable online they have harmful effects in the long run, if you lose a lot of weight very quickly, you may not lose as much fat as you would with a more modest rate of weight loss. Instead, you might lose water weight or even lean muscle tissue, since it's hard to burn that many fat calories in a short period. I will need to carry out detailed assessment in your case, after assessing your personal challenges to weight loss, I will recommend a strategy to gradually change habits and attitudes that have sabotaged your past efforts. I being a both a registered dietitian and doctor have been successfully helping patients with their problems through a holistic approach using customized therapeutic diet and medications. Do reply back for private consultation.

To treat diabetes one has to either take insulin injections or oral antidiabetic drugs. The choice of medication will depend upon blood sugar levels and hba1c%. Apart from medication one has to control the diet and exercise regularly for more than 1 h a day. Please remember the treatment is for life time, there is no cure.

Mr. Lybrate-user, body pain can be due to many reasons like over strin, having indulged in sudden exercise or a game cricket or any other after a very long gap, doing excess house hold work or simply due to fever. Dolo 650 is paracetamol 650 mg, mainly fever reducing drug with mild analgesic effect. So just taking that may not relieve the pain completely. Some times viral fevers also cause fairly severe body ache. It may just recover completely in next day or two. Thanks for the question.

Mr shivam, the sugar level mentioned (60 mg) is too low, it must be fasting one. At this level patient feels uncomfortable and further drop in level is dangerous. What is the pp level & also his HbA1c%. If fasting also is less then you may have to consult the doctor to see if glimiperide dosage be adjusted. He should be made aware of the hypoglycemia symptoms, should carry gluco tabs all the while, have an identity card mentioning his diabetic condition with all personal details. If you want me to give specific advice please come in a private conversation with all the details, then I can guide with a proper specific prescription.

How to change my eating habits for type 2 diabeties?
Hello , national institutes of health (nih) recommends about 2, 000 to 2, 400 calories a day for medium-sized or large men who are physically active, large men at a healthy weight or who are medium-sized, or large women who are very physically active. Get most or all of your carbohydrates from high-fiber sources like vegetables, beans, fruits, and whole grains. High-fiber foods are digested more slowly, which helps keep your blood sugar levels stable. Protein can help stabilize your blood sugar since it takes time to digest. Even so, be sure to choose lean meats, fish, and non- or low-fat dairy products. Protein should provide about 12 to 20 percent of your daily calories. Add omega-3 fat to your diet which will balance your blood sugar. Let me know if I can suggest you the best sources of healthy food.

I am happy to read that you are doing yoga regularly" sarvangasana" is a specific aasan for thyroid and you must practise it for at least five minutes every day. Constipation is due to thyroid deficiency, when was the last time you got your thyroid checked? please let me know the result, I want to see scanned copy of the report. Report should not be older than one month. Dizziness while walking can be because of low haemoglobin of low vit d3. Please get blood checked for these two and let me know the result.
