Hi, repeat your thyroid function test. T3,4 and TSH acne may be due to hormonal imbalance. Drink more water 4_5 liters. Avoid spicy and junk food. Homeopathic medicine can cure your acne and other complaints. After taking a test contact me for further. Take care.

Lybrate-user, first thing is blood sugar must be in excellent control with fasting around 100 mg, pp 150 to 160 mg and hba1c% <7. Plus get the wound completely drained and cleaned, properly dressed. There is a need for proper antibiotic treatment for a week or more. Then the wound will heal. Thanks.

I feel I have depression and today I got a thyroid test done where I found I have a TSH level of 41.09uUI/ml. Are these to connected. What is the way ahead now.

MD - Psychiatry, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Panchkula
Hello lybrate-user. Your tsh levels are raised, that means you have hypothyroidism. Symptoms of hypothyroidism include lethargy, weight gain, feeling cold, difficulty in concentration, etc. You may also have low mood or depression like symptoms. So both are connected to some extent. Kindly see a physician and a psychiatrist who will give you required treatment.

General Physician,
CONTROLLING BLOOD SUGAR Diabetes affects all organs in the body – Eyes, kidneys, nerves, reproductive system all are affected, In fact, from toe to hair. For diabetic control, patient and doctor should be in constant touch for regular follow up and advice. The common symptoms are :-Both types of diabetes have some of the same tell-tale warning signs. Hunger and fatigue. Your body converts the food you eat into glucose that your cells use for energy. But your cells need insulin to bring the glucose in. If your body doesn't make enough or any insulin, or if your cells resist the insulin your body makes, the glucose can't get into them and you have no energy. This can make you more hungry and tired than usual. Urinating more often and being thirstier. The average person usually has to pee between four and seven times in 24 hours, but people with diabetes may go a lot more. Dry mouth and itchy skin. Because your body is using fluids to make pee, there's less moisture for other things. You could get dehydrated, and your mouth may feel dry. Dry skin can make you itchy. Blurred vision. Changing fluid levels in your body could make the lenses in your eyes swell up. They change shape and lose their ability to focus. 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... if you keep in touch personally.

My Huby blood sugar level is 375 after one-hour lunch. He have to start diabetes tablets a?

BHMS, VLIR Belgium, Canadian Academy Of Homeopathy

If it is a very recent one do try Homeopathy first. Homeopathy is a very good friend of diabetics, because it may not only reduce the sugar count in many cases, but it can cure diabetes also, provided the patient follows dietary precautions and physical movements. If it cannot cure, it can drastically help in improving the quality of life in terms of preventing or delaying the diabetic effects on kidneys, eyes etc. I observe great effects using homeopathy in diabetics. It can treat wonderfully the very common symptoms of diabetics like pain in the legs, sleeplessness, lethargy, depression, fatigue, indifference etc. You must move, go for a walk, at least half an hour and have dietary precautions. You must have physical movements, that helps to keep sugar under control and minimize all carbohydrates from the diet for ex rice. You can use the following tips: One teaspoon of methi seeds soaked overnight in 100 ml of water is good for diabetes, Drink tomato juice with salt and pepper every morning on an empty stomach. For details you can contact me for further guidance.

My mother had ultrasound of her neck today in which the doctor said her thyroid gland is increasing and its tissues are coming out. Can anyone please help me with this that why is it happening? My mom has to go for two blood tests as well yet then the doctor will tell about the treatment. Since 1.5 months my mom feels tired after working, has swelling on right side of her neck and it pains in the ear too when she tries to sleep that side. No internal pain but it pains outside and it has gradually increased. Please tell me the precautions that we should take and also is it serious? Would be very helpful. Thanks.

Hi, If thyroid gland size is increasing, it may be due to goitre formation. So it is necessary to get a thyroid assay done. The result will help in a correct diagnosis of the condition. It can be Hashimoto's Thyroiditis, a simple goitre or thyrotoxicosis. Only assay will help in finding out First get the thyroid assay done and come back with the results then only I will be able to guide. Thanks.

Mr Kishan, Diabetes and hypothyroidism should be always in control with proper drugs. If hypothyroidism is not in check it can cause constipation. To give any kind of advise i need to know fasting and PP sugar levels, HbA1c%, TSH levels and drugs being taken. So please give those details and come in a private conversation, where I can give specific suggestions. As regards low BP please mention the BP readings.

Pay close attention to your food choice. ·        Eat less carbohydrate food sources like chapatti, rice, noodles, pasta, bread etc as they help in gaining weight and storing fat. ·        While having lunch or dinner eat vegetables and dal to fill your stomach rather eating lots of chapattis or rice. ·        Have a healthy breakfast like poha, idli, upma, plain dosa, oats, dalia or khichdi with vegetables. ·        Eat a balance diet including good quality proteins like: fish, lean chicken and eggs. If you are a vegetarian then include skimmed milk, low fat paneer, butter milk, soy bean or soy milk in your diet. ·        Avoid ghee, butter or vanaspati. Prepare your diet with vegetable oil like sunflower, safflower soybean or olive oil. ·        Eat plenty of salads. ·        Eat fresh fruits including apple, orange, pineapple, papaya, sweet lime, berries, guava, watermelon, mask melon etc. ·        Avoid eating outside junk and fried foods like pizza, pasta, roll, burgers, cakes, chocolates and cookies. ·        Have an early dinner. The earlier the better, giving your system more time to digest the food. ·        Avoid cold drinks/alcohol as they add empty calories to your diet. ·        Avoid fat enriched milk products like cheese, sweets, full fat cream etc. ·        Drink 3 liters of water in a day. ·        Try to have less sugar in food and beverages. ·        Try to drink 2 cups of green tea in a day as green tea helps in weight loss by aiding digestion. ·        Avoid red meat like mutton, beef, lamb or pork. ·        Eat sprouts or roasted chana, whenever you feel hungry.
