I got my tests done for Thyroid. The value for TSH is around 127. I was immediately put on medication. This was around 2 years back. In Jan the test showed that the value is back to Normal 5.5. I am still on medication. However this month the tests were repeated and the value is 11.7. I have no symptoms of thyroid.

This suggests that production of thyroid hormone by your thyroid gland has further reduced hence pituitary gland is trying to stimulate it by producing more TSH. You need to increase the dose of thuroid hormone supplement in consultation of your doctor.

What is role of Salmon OMEGA 3 in general health of a woman suffering from diabetes.

What is role of Salmon OMEGA 3 in general health of a woman suffering from diabetes.
It provides some help in controlling cholesterol levels and keep the blood vessels healthy. It has miniscule benefit compared to prescription medicines. You can eat the actual salmon if you wish which is best but it is not available in most places in India that is the problem. The dose that gives any form of benefit is 2.4 gm/day which means several tablets in a day. If your doctor is giving any less than that, then it is a waste of money.

Control diabets (as your levels are still high). Diabetics are known to have sex problems. Also get a cardiac work up done. If all are normal and still the problem persists, then get a check up by sexologist and take drugs. Don't take drugs shown in tv as they may not be safe for your health.

In fact you should have started with 75 mcg per day in the beginning only. However now you will have take 87.5 mcg and test the tsh after 6 weeks, to if tsh has come down. On treatment tsh should be around 3 to 4 milli units/ml, to control all the symptoms. Thanks for the question.

25 year female and 4 months pregnant. Vaginal bleeding since 2months. Fasting and ppbs sugar levels are 83, 99 resp. But gtt values are 170, 164, 120, 99 each taken at half an hour intervals. 15th week scan said placenta is 2cm above os. Does my sugar level variation cause vaginal bleeding or is it due to low lying placenta? please help me soon. I am worried.

You have impaired glucose test. You check your thyroid profile also. Placenta is not too risky as per the report. It is not as easy task to control blood sugar in the desired normal range. Whatever we eat is metabolised 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 touchly,
