Always remember three things. 1- medicines. 2-check up by doctor. 3-precautions in diet. You would be alright. You find any problem ask again.

I am 4 months postpartum. My tsh was routinely checked during preg. It was 7.2. So I was started on thyronorm 50 mcg and increased to 62.5 mcg. My tsh came down to 2.5. I was said to have subclinical hypothyroidism. Now postpartum I am on 50 mcg thyronorn. But my tsh is 32.5 mIU/ ml. And total t3, t 4 within normal limits. How is this possible and what do I do?

There may be thyroid hormone binding antibodies which make t3 & t4 unavailable. Please meet an endocrinologist.

For diabetes follow a diet low in carbohydrate, low in fat and high in fibre. Walking for 30 mins a day for at least 5 days in a week is recommended. Medicine will depend upon sugar level.

good evening, in t1 diabetes insulin is the only treatment because in those patients pancreas does not produce insulin at all. In t2 diabetes if oral drugs are not able to give adequate sugar control then insulin injections are given. Insulin is given whenever there is need for it. Age is no concern. To my knowledge ayurvedic medicines really do not help in controlling blood sugar. In case of bp they might help.

I'm 42 years old, male. My blood sugar is 122 mg/dl (fasting) and 184 mg/dl (2 hours after breakfast). Please advice if i'm suffering from type 2 diabetes. Thank you sir.

lybrate-user, If hypothyroidism is present then weight increase is bound to occur unless TSH level is brought down around 3 to 4 mU/L. So first thing is to see that TSH is at desired level. Then efforts to reduce weight are likely to be fruitful. Most important is to have a restricted diet and exercise daily for at least 1 hour. Thanks.

My wife, 47 years old , was detected with diabetes and high BP just one year back without having family history.

Hi, tsh 3.49 milli units/l, is good, but to conceive tsh levels have to be around 0.1 to 2.0 milli units / l, so it is necessary that thyroxine dosage may have to be increased. You may go ahead with the investigations suggested by the doctor, but reducing tsh level to the limit mentioned above is a must. Similarly it is recommended that during 1 st trimester tsh should be 0.1 to 2 milli units, 2nd trimester 0.3 to 3.0 milli units/l and 3rd trimester 0.3 to 3.5 milli units/l. So please take care and thanks for the question.

It is not as easy task to control blood sugar in the desired normal range. Whatever we eat is metabolized 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) 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. For sugar 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 privately with all details like your daily eating pattern and medicines you take. I assure you a proper guidance. If you keep in touch.

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.

Drink more water, high-carbohydrate foods such as potatoes, rice, pasta and bread. 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,

Diabetes is a progressive disease where there is early aging of certain organs like kidney brain heart eyes etc as they affected by the increased sugar levels early, and by preferentially. Even if the sugars are controlled well the disease in kidney can't be reversed though progress of disease can be delayed. Infections in kidney or for that matter the urinary tract has to be dealt with immediately. Follow up of creatinine and urea every month is ok. Kidney protective drugs should be used. BP medications has to be reviewed.
