My sister's tsh is 15.940
She do not have any child Her age is 29
She want to know about thyroid and fertility.
Low levels of thyroid hormone can interfere with the release of an egg from your ovary (ovulation), which impairs fertility. In addition, some of the underlying causes of hypothyroidism — such as certain autoimmune or pituitary disorders — may impair fertility.

Ayurveda,
My wife is suffering from Diabetes. Her sugar level without eating any thing, tested in early in morning found 188.
Hello lybrate-user, first line of treatment for diabetes is to avoid sugar, sweets, white rice, potato, sweet fruits and avoid sedentary lifestyle. At least 40mints of walk or 30mints exercise is must. If her diabetes is still more after avoiding sweet and doing exercise then she should consult a diabetologist.

Few details are required to give correct advise, like weight, height, waist circumference, level of physical activity every day and the dosage of medications taken. Ppg 0.2 needs to be taken with each meal with first bite. As regards the food on tour one can stick to dal roti, salads, curd and a little rice (if needed). Breakfast could be upama, 2 idlis, 1 -2 plain dosas with nil oil, and half apple or 1 orange etc. Dinner should be similar to lunch. Avoid sweets, pastries, deep fried foods, drink dilute butter milk. A glass of skimmed milk can be had at bed time.

How we can control diabetes? And what we can eat to control it?

BAMS
General Physician,
How we can control diabetes? And what we can eat to control it?
Be on strict diabetic diet. Perform regular exercises or go for 1hr walk daily. Get your sugar levels checked every month and visit your doctor at regular intervals for follow up. You can take 1tsf of methi powder mixed with water in the morning on empty stomach. Chew 5-6 neem leaves in the morning. Take bittergourd juice or koolkol juice (0ne glass) on empty stomach in the morning. All these will help to keep your sugar levels under control.

What kind of breakfast is best for diabetes patient. Is it possible to remove this problem from root.

What kind of breakfast is best for diabetes patient.
Is it possible to remove this problem from root.
To help manage your diabetes, your meals need to be: • Regular and spread evenly throughout the day • Lower in fat, particularly saturated fat • If you take insulin or diabetes tablets, you may need to have between meal snacks Matching the amount of food you eat with the amount you burn up each day is important. Not putting too much fuel in your body (keeping food intake to moderate serves) is vital to getting the right balance. Along with healthy eating, regular physical activity can help you to manage your blood glucose levels, reduce your blood fats (cholesterol and triglycerides) and maintain a healthy weight. . It is important to recognise that one diet does not fit everyone with diabetes. So my slogan for all diabetics is 'One Diet does Not Fit All'. So every individual diabetic should consult a dietician to plan a way according to individual body,tastes and requirements.Only then can you control your blood sugar levels. Diabetes can be controlled with Diet and medicines but cannot be permanently cured.

Hello, BP 140 / 60 is fairly good at the age 75 years, so continue the same medication. Reducing will increase the BP. Blood glucose control is considered good when FBS is clser to 100 mg, PP 170 to 180 mg and HbA1c% <7 at your age. (HbA1c% can be aloowed up to 7.5%). Thanks.

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.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
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,

If thyroid hormone levels are normal please continue present treatment. But periodically check thyroid hormone levels (once in 3 months). If the condition recurs at that time treatment can be decided. Presently continue with the drugs that you are on.

A high uric acid level can be caused when your body either produces too much uric acid or your kidneys don't eliminate uric acid rapidly enough. A high uric acid level may cause increasingly frequent attacks of gout, or it may never cause problems. A high uric acid level may also cause some people to develop kidney stones or kidney failure. And some people with a high uric acid level also develop high blood pressure, heart disease or chronic kidney disease, but it's often unclear whether this is a direct cause or merely an early warning sign of these conditions. Factors that may cause a high uric acid level in your blood include: Diuretic medications (water pills),Drinking too much alcohol,Genetics (inherited tendencies),hypothyroidism (underactive thyroid),Immune-suppressing drugs,Niacin, or vitamin B-3, obesity,psoriasis, Purine-rich diet — organ meat, game meat, anchovies, herring, gravy, dried beans, driedpeas, mushrooms and other foods Renal insufficiency — inability of the kidneys to filter waste Tumor lysis syndrome — a rapid release of cells into the blood caused by certain cancers or by chemotherapy for those cancers,Also, you may be monitored for high uric acid levels when undergoing chemotherapy or radiation treatment for cancer. Avoid protein diets, avoid more milk products. bad habits , fast food/fat/oily,salty foods. Coffee, smoking, alcohol intake. Non-veg., take whole grain,oats,green veg.,plenty of water in day time, 1 glass of water at night before bed.
