I have been suffering from Thyroid since last seven years. At present my TSH reading is 0.36 and I am taking Thyronorm 100 mg daily. Can I reduce the dose to 75 mg because of low TSH reading. Sometime back the dose was increased to 100 mg from 75 mg because of high TSH.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. TSH 0.36 mU/ L is fine, there is no need to reduce the dosage. If one changes the dosage often then that will lead to a considerable variation in TSH levels and there will be proper control on hypothyroidism. One can look at reducing the dose only when TSH levels go <0.1 mU/L. Thanks.

Alcohol consumption is absolutely not recommended when one is diabetic. But of course once in a while it is fine. Rum by itself does not contain sugar but if taken with coke can be hazardous to a diabetic. It has 38 to 60 % alcohol and alcohol is empty calories.

Prediabetic means prediabetic not diabetic. Everyone's blood sugar changes always depending on food taken, workout done, when blood checked etc. It is dynamic. Just follow proper dieting and excrcises, nutritional supplements. Can certainly avoid diabetes if proper consistent care is taken.

Mr. Lybrate-user, you blood sugar levels mentioned are quite with in the expected range when on treatment. What is the hba1c%? it should be <7 or ideally closer to 6.5%. You are controlling the sugar levels really well. Keep it up. Avoiding hyperglycemia is essential as prevents or delays development of long term complications of diabetes.
