I am 28 f, unmarried from amritsar. I am the only one care taker for myself. I am stuck into worst situations. I am surrounding into so many problems. But there are two major problems. First is- worst pelvic pain! second is- excessive hair growth on full face and on whole body! it disturbed my whole life! both has become a big full stop of my life. I spent almost 75 % and all my savings into to solve these two problems. From past 2 years I am doing nothing. I don't have even a single rupee. In short I cannot survive my life and cannot solve all my puzzles without solve these 2 major problems. I am unable to do job, work and unable to survive. I actually want to survive. I don't want to commit suicide. So that I am trying to find out where's the main problem exactly with the help of gynecologist and endocrinologist. 1. Worst pelvic pain since 18 to 19 years has been passed:- here I am describing about pelvic pain: period started-at the age of 13 it was regular till dec 2013 1 month delayed- since dec 2013 to oct 2013 (almost 1 year) after having norlut- n 2-2 in a day for 5 days (2nd dec 2014 to 6 dec 2014) then period started also in the month of 11th dec 2014. And then jan 10th 2015. It was also fully painful. Pelvic pain type - (extremely sharp, aching, crampy) pelvic pain when - when periods started, before till dec 2013, migraine like head ache when - 1 day before and after 6 day of the periods, till dec 2013 after dec 2013 pelvic pain and migraine like head ache - even on other days too. Pelvic pain location (both side on'v' shape) pain duration (4 days) intensity (10? worst? the pain is) --------------- 2nd excessive hair growth type of hair on full face - black, little long than normal. Stared at the age of 13 -14 on beard area & neck area- excessive, black, thick, long. Started at the age of 17 -18-19 on whole body- excessive, black, long, thick on legs, thighs, hips, bikni area & full area of abdomen and on chest and on underarms. Excessive, long, black on arms. I have taken lost of medicine, tonics, homeopathy, english, ayurvedic since 18 -19 years. Last medicine for pelvic pain is combiflame recent medicine for pelvic pain and migraine is dico- liv. But all are useless actually. Even all tests are like testosterone, fsh, lh, amh, dheas, ultrasound are normal then can these problem of hair growth and pelvic pain raise because of hypothyroidism? or is there any reason behind that? please give me your opinion. My tsh level was 8.56 on 20 jan 2012 7.60 on 28 feb 2013 8.93 on 5 nov 2013 7.03 on 2 dec 2014 so kindly tell me should I start the thyroid medicine? or should wait for months? if you say yess I should have to take medicine then how much mcg I will have to start 25 or 50 mcg and which company? but I have some doubts. Beacuase apart from these problems like excessive hair growth on face nd whole body, pelvic pain, cold hand and feet in winters, hair fall there's no another any such a symptoms. Kindly solve this puzzle please Dr. I shall be very thankful to you. These 4 days are like I am traveling into hell and feeling like to commit suicide. Nobody can understand my these problems. And no one is taking deeply or seriously to my these problems. Now Dr. Kindly you tell me can you help me to solve these puzzles?

hair grow on body is due to thyroid and fibroids in uterus. what are tsh level in 2015. pl. tell us.. but you may continue your medicines till then. You can take Nutrient-rich foods that improve your health may also benefit your thyroid gland, antioxidant-rich fruits and vegetables more plenty of water: Blueberries, tomatoes, bell peppers, and other foods rich in antioxidants can improve overall health and benefit the thyroid gland. Eating foods high in B vitamins, like whole grains, may also help. Selenium: Tiny amounts of selenium are needed for enzymes that make thyroid hormones to work properly. Eating selenium-rich foods, such as sunflower seeds or Brazil nuts, can be beneficial. Tyrosine: This amino acid is used by the thyroid gland to produce T3 and T4. Taking a supplement may help, avoid alcohl if you take.

Respected Dr, Sub:-Regd: Thyroid test values are TSH 19, T3 1.02, T4 5.43. I am 80 kg weight. I am using Thyro 50 mg. Is the dose sufficient or not pl advice me.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. When a person is on treatment for hypothyroidism with adequate dose of levothyroxine, then TSH is maintained around 3 to 4 mU/L. That will make one free from all the symptoms of hypothyroidism. You have a very high TSH, which means that the disease is not in control. To reach the desired level of TSH you will have to take a higher dose of levothyroxine. Then test the TSH level after 6 to 8 weeks. If then level is in the above mentioned range, then the condition is considered as well controlled. Uncontrolled hypothyroidism leads to considerable weight gain. You have mentioned only your weight, but no height is given to find out your BMI. Please see that your TSH levels are maintained in the above mentioned range. Thanks.

Either this is a lab aberration or you may have autoimmune thyroditis. If you have symptoms such as low energy, weight gain, hairfall, etc or suffering from PCOS, I would advice you to have the same treated appropriately.

Before going for a diet Plan ask your doctor about the medications and how to adjust if you change your diet. Instead of a strict diet plan why not voluntarily reduce the amount of food you eat in small bits so that you will not face hypoglycaemia (low glucose levels ). The general rules of diabetic diet is still important. What is important is increase your activity level slowly and studily along with diet. It takes time, so be patient and reduce weight within your comfort level under the guidance of your doctor.

The increase in the blood sugar levels damages nerves and blood vessels. It also leads to complications like cardiovascular diseases, strokes, kidney problems, blindness, dental problems and amputations. High blood glucose levels also damage nerves and blood vessels. Diabetes can also lead to depression, fertility issues, and increased risk of other diseases and lack of mobility as the age of the person increases. It is very difficult to find out what exactly triggers diabetes, but health experts say that genes and environmental factors are responsible for rise in blood glucose levels. There are two types of diabetes- type 1 diabetes and type 2 diabetes. Let us study the causes that give rise to type 1 and type 2 diabetes. Diabetes is a grave medical condition, but with a healthy diet and regular exercise, managing the condition becomes a child? s play. Here are a handful of diabetes home remedies every diabetic can rely on to keep fluctuations of sugar levels under control. Bitter gourd: bitter gourds are one among the most effective ways for preventing sugar level fluctuations. Being a safe vegetable, this iron-rich gourd can be consumed by anyone. It influences the glucose metabolism in the body and helps stimulate pancreatic insulin secretion. Known to thwart off insulin resistance, bitter gourd is equally beneficial for people suffering from type 1 and type 2 diabetes. Drink a glass of bitter gourd juice, flavored with a little honey, every morning to keep diabetes away. Guava is rich in both vitamin c and fiber, both that help in maintaining normal blood sugar levels. A very good home remedy for diabetes. Just peel the skin and consume one fruit daily to reap its benefits get some physical activity daily to burn calories and stay in shape. This will also reduce the risk of cardiovascular diseases. Have a lot of fiber in the form of fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds and whole grains any queries inform me.

You will have to continue the medication (eltroxin) as advised, and get serum tsh checked after 6 weeks of regular medicine intake. If the reports are normal, you will have to continue medications. Once your tsh levels are stable, you can decrease the frequency of checking tsh and can get it checked once a year or if you experience thyroid related symptoms. If your weight does not decrease after stabilisation of tsh levels, you will need to be evaluated for other causes of obesity. You should exercise regularly and may have to follow a diet chart as advised by a dietician.

It has to be properly diagnosed first by a Consulting Physician and Orthopedician for Rhematism, Calacneous spur, Tendon inflammation, Calcium deficiency etc. Try dipping affected leg in hot water for 15 minutes and immediately after in cold water. Add little salt to water. Occasional pain killer for temporary relief can be taken with precautions about hyperacidity. Seek specialist opinion.

Will a person with Type 2 diabetes under control end up with the need for insulin?
Yes, it is possible. If the diabetes cannot be controlled with medicines, then insulin is necessary. But if it under control, then it is okay. Regular exercises especially walking helps to keep diabetes under control.

Jayashriji, Ideally when you are on treatment for hypothyroidism with adequate dosage of thyroxine then TSH should be maintained around 3 to 4 mU/L, then most of the symptoms are well in control. If the TSH levels go up, then the symptoms invariably reappear. Changing the dosage on your own is not good. It is better to take your doctor's opinion. Further there is no mention of current TSH level to give any opinion.Thanks

Healthy sleep habits can make a big difference in your quality of life. Having healthy sleep habits is often referred to as having good sleep hygiene. Try to keep the following sleep practices on a consistent basis: Stick to a sleep schedule of the same bedtime and wake up time, even on the weekends. This helps to regulate your body's clock and could help you fall asleep and stay asleep for the night. Practice a relaxing bedtime ritual. A relaxing, routine activity right before bedtime conducted away from bright lights helps separate your sleep time from activities that can cause excitement, stress or anxiety which can make it more difficult to fall asleep, get sound and deep sleep or remain asleep. If you have trouble sleeping, avoid naps, especially in the afternoon. Power napping may help you get through the day, but if you find that you can't fall asleep at bedtime, eliminating even short catnaps may help. Exercise daily. Vigorous exercise is best, but even light exercise is better than no activity. Exercise at any time of day, but not at the expense of your sleep. Evaluate your room. Design your sleep environment to establish the conditions you need for sleep. Your bedroom should be cool – between 60 and 67 degrees. Your bedroom should also be free from any noise that can disturb your sleep. Finally, your bedroom should be free from any light. Check your room for noises or other distractions. This includes a bed partner's sleep disruptions such as snoring. Consider using blackout curtains, eye shades, ear plugs, "white noise" machines, humidifiers, fans and other devices. Sleep on a comfortable mattress and pillows. Make sure your mattress is comfortable and supportive. The one you have been using for years may have exceeded its life expectancy – about 9 or 10 years for most good quality mattresses. Have comfortable pillows and make the room attractive and inviting for sleep but also free of allergens that might affect you and objects that might cause you to slip or fall if you have to get up.

You are aware that hypothyroidism can only be treated by taking hormone thyroxine in prescribed dosage. Therefore, you will have to continue taking thyroxine tablets, prescribed by your doctor. Please understand there is no cure for this condition. Treatment is for life time. Plus you will have to avoid eating cauliflower, cabbage, broccoli, mustard and soya containing products. Also better to avoid coffee. You can consume other vegetables, onions, garlic, tomato and always use whole grain flour made breads.
