Yes thyroid level plays important role in pregnancy as any change in thyroid level effects other hormones too. You may take homoeopathic treatment for the same.

My mother (45 years old) has thyroid problem. Yesterday she had a test for it. In report, T3 and T4 levels are fairly normal and close to low side but within the acceptable range. But TSH level is high upto 13.83 where its acceptable range given in report is 0.35 - 5.50. Can anyone suggest me a good cure in this regard? What should be done now?

Mr. Lybrate-user, she has developed hypothyroidism, which needs to be treated with taking thyroxine tablets regularly and that too for lifetime. There is no cure in this situation, plus she has to avoid soy beans, soy containing products, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, radish, mustard, peanuts and coffee. Should consume a good deal of green leafy vegetables and salads and fruits. Use whole grain flour for chapati and roti. Avoid refined flour like maida and products made out of it. Exercise regularly to avoid weight gain. Thanks for the question.

Dear , though your fbs and ppbs are normal your hba1c is high. That means that your average sugar control is poor and that could be one of the reasons for weakness. Are you taking any medications for diabetes?

Mr Roney, If your blood sugars are as low as stated, then it is really good. Even your earlier readings show that you only had impaired glucose tolerance, not diabetes. So if you continue to live a healthy life style you can remain free from it. As regards eating rice, potatoes and sweets, you can do it with in the limit. Because eating excess can always drive your sugar higher. Plus you have to maintain a healthy normal weight.

Hi There are many Diabetic oral medications that can be started for you but certain patient details like BMI, Recent blood tests are required to decide on that. However stopping insulin all of a sudden is not recommended, we can taper the insulin dose slowly and then stop it depending on your diabetes control.

My 15 years old son has been diagnosed with hypothyroidism being his tsh is > 100.
Anithaji, If diagnosis is confirmed then treatment also must have been started with thyroxine tablets. With data provided he is having grade 1 obesity with a BMI of 33.33 kg/ M2. Apart from taking thyroxine he will have to exercise regularly to reduce his weight. Once hypothyroidism is under control effort to reduce weight will be successful. The treatment with thyroxine is for life time. Should not be stopped in between.

Mr. Lybrate-user, it appears you have fairly severe hypothyroidism. You have not mentioned what is the t4 and t3 level. Other parameters look with in the range. To treat hypothyroidism you have to start on thyroxine tablets. 10 mcg is too low a dose. It has to be begin with 50 to 75 mcg, then check tsh level after 6 weeks and then if level has come down to the expected extent continue the same dose. Thanks.

(1. Preventive treatment for thyroid:-a healthy diet, exercise, proper nutrition, and stress reduction can all minimize the chance of developing thyroid disease. (2). Preventivet treatment for diabetes:- 30 grams of protein at breakfast may help reduce glucose spikes, among type-2 diabetic adults. Olive oil may protect against diabetes (3). Preventive treatment for hypertension:-do exercise, loose weight, reduced salt intake, stop drinking alcohol, reduced stress, take nutrients, potassium, calcium, magnesium, fish oil, garlic. (4). Preventive treatment for pancreatitis;- you cannot completely prevent pancreatitis caused by gallstones. But you may be able to reduce your risk of forming gallstones by staying at a healthy weight with a balanced diet and regular exercise. For more information, see the topic gallstones. You can reduce your chance of having pancreatitis by not drinking alcohol excessively. The amount of alcohol needed to cause pancreatitis varies from one person to another. Generally, moderate consumption is considered no more than 2 alcoholic beverages a day for men and 1 a day for women and older people. Smoking may increase your chance of having pancreatitis.

It is better if you get your blood sugar checked in a close by laboratory, that will give a clear idea. If diabetes is present then readings are: fasting >126 mg and pp >200 mg /100ml. If fasting sugar is between 100 to 125 mg it is known as fasting glucose intolerance. If pp is between 140 to 199 mg it is impaired glucose tolerance. Both these conditions are also referred as pre diabetic stage. Normal glucose is - fasting 70 to 110 mg and pp <140 mg.
