Soft drinks may not affect thyroid directly but it predisposes to many other problems like gastritis, diabetes nutritional imbalances which aggrevate any exhisting disease. Please stop have softdrinks as they are as bad for health as alcohol drinks.

Yes you need proper testing and evaluation with complete checkup for complete radical curative treatment. Also you have diabetes, so more important to understand because diabetics are more prone to chronic infections and as you are married your wife and future children would be at risk. Its serious matter, connect directly one to one either in person or online. Move on, connect.

My elder brother is suffering from diabetes/sugar. What food is beneficial to prevent sugar.
If he is having Diabetes, merely food advise will not be enough. He must take medicines too. Food should be restricted in carbohydrate not more than 65 % of total calories. Direct sugar and sugar containing food materials should be completely avoided. There should be at least 2-3 hours gap in eating. Timing of food is also important.

Thyroid - Does It Impact Sex Life?

Thyroid - Does It Impact Sex Life?

The thyroid gland is a tiny gland that produces the hormones which affect the body's metabolic process. When these hormones are produced in less or more quantities, it may result in an imbalance of the thyroid gland, leading to a range of thyroid issues including hypothyroidism, hyperthyroidism and others. Overproduction or underproduction of the thyroid hormones can also cause a variety of other symptoms and conditions. While this affects the state of one's general well being, health and weight, it also has an effect on the patient's libido.

Let us learn more about the link between thyroid and sex:

  • Thyroid in Men: Men who are suffering from hyperthyroidism or hypothyroidism as well as related conditions like goitre or Garves Disease, have complained of sex related problems. These problems are known to affect at least 50% to 60% of the patients, as per various medical reports. The sex related issues include premature ejaculation, low sex drive, delayed ejaculation, erectile dysfunction, and others.
  • Thyroid in Women: It has been found that almost 10% of women over the age of 50 suffer from some form or the other of thyroid hormone imbalance. Apart from fatigue, depression and muscle ache as well as weight alteration, depending on the type of thyroid problem, thyroid patients who are women have also experienced problems when it comes to libido. Sexual dysfunction and arousal problems are high on the list of these issues.
  • Hormonal Treatment: One of the most common ways of treating this sex related thyroid problems for thyroid patients is through the use of hormonal therapy. Besides getting the testosterone, estrogen and other androgen levels checked, the patient must also get a full hormonal evaluation along with a check-up of the adrenal function. This can help in pointing any anomalies and the hormones that will require replacement with the help of appropriate medication.
  • Optimal Drug Treatment: A T4 only drug or Levothyroxine can lead to a resolution of sexual problems that one encounters as a part of thyroid problems. There are many doctors who may switch to a T3 drug once the libido is restored and brought back to normal.
  • Supplements: Men may require testosterone supplements, while women may need estrogen or progesterone supplements to tackle the sexual problems in such cases. These can be rendered as a patch or through an injection.
  • Sex Therapy: In many cases, sex therapy considered as a popular and effective form of addressing the problems and helping the patients get around the same. This is especially helpful if depression is one of the symptoms of the thyroid disorder.

A thorough physical check-up also helps in treating such problems for thyroid patients. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Sexologist.

Diabetes affects all organs in the body ? Eyes, kidneys, nerves, reproductive system all are affected, In fact, from toe to hair. 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), & HbA1C 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 & lifestyle. Give all the details like your daily eating pattern and medicines you take.

Diabetes can also fluctuate everyday. A better parameter is hba1c. Which gives you an average sugar of last 2 months. You should follow a good exercise and diet regimen. You may need allopathy medicines some day.

Hello, From results mentioned he has hypothyroidism due to Hashimoto's Thyroiditis. Since he has visible goitre, it better to consult an endocrinologist and start the treatment with thyroxine in specified dosage. If surgery is required, it is the local endocrinologist who can guide very well. Do not waste time and get an appointment. I am sure there excellent endocrinologists in Kolkata. Thanks.

Frst of all. Calm down urself. 22 years olds doesn't get diabetes. Diabetes type 2 will usually occur at around 40 or more. The other counter part type 1, will be found earlier in d life around 10 yrs. When a person starts taking more fluids consequently the amount of urination increases. So dnt worry about tat. Even if you think your taking fluids in lesser amount but the urinary frequency is more. Then get urself checked up for diabetes insipidus, which is a rare condition. So stop worrying Nd start living normally.
