Your blood sugar levels r normal. No need to worry but sgpt is increased means that yr liver is not properly functioning. So 1. Avoid overeating 2. Avoid excessive milk products like cheese, butter and ghee 3. Avoid fast food, spicy and fried food 4. Avoid alcohol if you you're taking 5. Avoid non veg 6. Take nutritious homemade diet.

I do not know if this is with or without treatment. Exercise regularly. Avoid sugars. Avoid oily food. Consume fiber rich food. If it still high then you need medical management.

8 months back my tsh was 7.5 and I was put on thyrox 25 mcg. Now the tsh has shot up to 17.2 and I'm currently taking thyrox 50 mcg. I have been having bradykinesia symptoms for the past 6 months and my doc suspects that it could be PD and put me on rasalect1 mg one per day. I have been given to understand that bradykinesia is a symptom of hypothyroid as well. How do I know whether my bradykinesia symptoms are because of PD or hypothyroid?

Dear user with the limited amount of information available we can very well understand your concern for hypothyroidism and parkinsons disease. Be assured bradykinesia is not a symptom of hypothyroidism rather it causes bradycardia which is slowing of heart rate. Will suggest to get your tsh rechecked within 6 weeks so that if dose modification is needed it can be done. Hope that solves your query. Anything more then feel free to ask.

Mr. lybrate-user, If you have diabetes and if it is not in good control, then fungal infections of the skin are quite often seen. Hence, primary need is to achieve a very strict blood glucose control with FBS closer to 100 mg, PP 150 to 160 mg & HbA1c% <6.8. Plus appropriate antifungal treatment should be taken both local and systemic to control fungal infection. BP also should be maintained between 120 to 130 ?70 to 80 mm Hg. There is no reason to feel sad, because if correct treatment is taken and all precautions are observed one can remain absolutely fit these conditions. However, because of your excess rather morbid obesity (BMI 53.57 kgs/M2) it is very difficult to bring all these conditions in control. Best option for you is to consider bariatric surgery, which will reduce weight and even control diabetes and hypertension. Thanks.

If you have hypothyroidism, you have start taking tab thyronorm, consult your doctor for dosage. It could be 50 mcg daily early morning on empty stomach and nothing to be taken for 45 minutes. There's no problem with pregnancy if you are on correct treatment. There's also no problem with your blood groups.

What causes Hashimoto's thyroiditis, and what is the best method of treatment? Can iodine help this condition?

CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology, MBBS
Endocrinologist
Ask Free Question
Mr. Lybrate-user, hashimoto's thyroiditis (ht) is an autoimmune disease, with lymphatic infiltration of thyroid gland. It becomes firm or globular. There are anti bodies produced against thyroid peroxidase enzyme (anti tpo ab) which destroy thyroxine secreting cells resulting in hypothyroidism. Treatment is to give thyroxine tablets. Iodine has no role in the treatment. In fact one of the causes is supposed to be taking extra iodine through iodinated salt.

Hello, weight reduction is a tough task. Following things need to be concentrated: 1) your caloric intake has to be strictly planned based on your ideal body weight (ibw) which should be 50 kg and level of physical exercise. 2) avoid sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods and pastries, 3) daily exercise schedule should be for more than 1 hour, should include aerobic activity for 20 minutes, stretching and brisk walking 4) set a target of loosing 2 - 3 kgs per month. By reducing 550 k calories per day you can cut 1/2 a kg weight per week, along with above mentioned physical activity. 5) there is no need to increase the dose of thyronorm now, but a periodic tsh levels check should be done.

Mr. lybrate-user, Your query is very general, so it is difficult to give any answer. It will be good if you give following details: 1) Her thyroid test details like T3, T4 & TSH levels. Plus if anti - TPO antibodies test has been done. 2) What are the tests suggested, Plus what are symptoms she is complaining of. Looking at those details I will be able to guide. Thanks.

She is suffering from dysmenorrhoea which is very common. Also hypoglycemia is also very common during this time. It should be treated initially with meftal spas (pain killer) tablets. If the pain is too severe it should be further investigated with ultrasound, to find out the exact cause. She could be suffering from endometriosis or ovarian cysr or fibroid. You can use glucon-d for hypoglycemia.

Hi , Your sugar is under control. For good control fasting glucose should be less than 110 and 2 hour post prandial glucose should be less than 160. HbA1C should be less than 6.5 for your age.(HbA1C gives the average blood glucose value over the past 3 months. Glucose in your blood is stuck to Haemoglobin produced by the Red blood cells) 1) Blood glucose testing should be done once every 3months when it is under control. This should include Fasting blood glucose, 2 hour post prandial blood glucose and HbA1C. 2) if the diabetes is not under control FBG and PPBG should be done more frequently - once every 3-4 weeks. But HbA1C should be repeated only once every 3 months - it is no use repeating it early as the life span of RBC ( red blood cells) is 3 months. Hope this helps you Thank you.

Hello sir, you have to follow good diabetic diet. Just have high protein, high fiber, low fat, low calorie diet. You should have idea about your carbohydrate counts. Sufficient water, every day 30-45 min physical activity or yoga, every day 10-15 min meditation, avoid tension and stress.
