Your blood sugar reports are normal. Continue this medicine, glycomet (metmormin) is safe up to 2000-2500 mg per day. When you are hungary, you can take salad. Take care.

I am 28 year old and suffering from hypothyroid since last 6 years, please suggest me somethng.
Dear lybrate-user, hypothyroidism is the suboptimal functioning of your thyroid gland. The hormone which is produced is in less quantity than what is required by the body. This hormone is very important for the normal functioning of many things-and that is why underfunctioning of this gland leads to far-reaching disturbances in the body. Some of the symptoms that you suffer because of hypothyroidism are increased tiredness, hair fall, constipation, dry skin, decreased libido etc. The simple rule here is that the hormone is deficient or less in quantity. So the simple solution is to supplement this hormone in the body. The the medicine that is given to you in hypothyroidism is actually a supplement of this hormone only. Which basically means that we are replacing the decreased quantity of this hormone by giving it in the form of a tablet. So all you need to do to save yourself from the ill effects of hypothyroidism is to just take one tablet a day that replaces your decreased hormone and keeps you fit and healthy. Regards.

Dear your wife's t3 and t4 are in the upper limit range of normal. Tsh is absolutely normal. During pregnancy the tsh levels tarhet is below 2.0 in first trimester. Which is 1.22 in your case and is completely normal. Don't worry about t3 or t4 values. The overall picture is absolutely normal and you have to do nothing for its treatment.

I have thyroid since 2 months I consult my family doctor in Hyderabad but no result how to recover this problem.

BHMS

Hi. Do you have hypothyroidism or hyperthyroidism? If you are suffering from chronic and high grade thyroid dysfunction or autoimmune thyroid disease, in all these cases whether you take allopathic or homoeopathic or any other mode of treatment, it would maintain your thyroid function. Do practice yoga along with these medicines. Yoga-Poses: Kalapbhati: This is a very effective form of pranayama. Sit down on the floor in a comfortable cross-legged position. Take a deep breath & then exhale quickly, while making a sound. Always remember while doing Kapalbhati – you have to forcefully and quickly exhale, but slowly and deeply inhale. Continue doing this for 10 times & then release. Ujjayi Pranayam: Sit down on the floor in a cross-legged straight position. Inhale slowly and deeply by both the nostrils. Try to make a hissing sound while you are sucking in the air. After that, stretch your inhale time for a while & then exhale as much as you can without giving any kind of pressure to your other body parts. This type of pranayama is very effective for those suffering from bronchitis, asthma & thyroid. Yoga Nidra (Corpse Pose) also works well in both hypo and hyperthyroidism in reducing stress and calming down. Foods to be avoided in Hypothyroidism: hypothyroidism causes skin to become dry. Once it is controlled with tsh levels becoming normal, most symptoms will disappear. Carrots and beet root are fine, can be eaten. Only cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, radish, mustard, peanuts, soy beans and soy containing products and coffee need to be avoided.

Hi lybrate-user, your thyroid levels are slightly high it should be around 2.5 when trying to get pregnant. Diet won't help that much in hypothyroidism, you can try for gluten free diet. Ideally you should have thyroid medicine it will be corrected in a month don't worry it's not major issues. Don't stop talking medicine without consulting doctor.

Dear lybrate user with the limited amount of information provided it appears that you are concerned about diabetes. It could had been better had you provided us with latest fasting and hba1c levels along with other test reports. For the proper management of diabetes it is advised that the patient should exercise regularly, maintain diet and medicine as advised. Regarding your concern for home remedies it is my humble request not to waste time in them and start on treatment asap. Hope that solves your query. Anything more then please feel free to revert.

If your blood sugar is not in control, then there is a possibility of loosing weight as more glucose is excreted. So first thing is get your sugar level in control. Fasting should be closer to 100 mg and pp 150 to 160 mg, when on treatment. Then only your health is likely to improve.

Mr. Lybrate-user, first and foremost is a person with diabetes should achieve excellent control of the blood sugar. Fasting should be around 100 mg and pp 150 to 160 mg. Hba1c% <7. Along with this there has to be a strict diet control. Plus daily exercise of at least 1 hour is a must. Both these help in better control of blood sugar. All green leafy vegetables are good, can be eaten in any quantity. Fruits permitted are papaya, pear, apple, water melon, orange, sweet lime, pomegranate and guava. To be avoided are mango, banana, chikkoo and grapes.

Hi m bhavi. My husband suffering in gout about 6yrs. please advice to reduced uric acid level and diet chart.

DM - Rheumatology, MD - General Medicine
Rheumatologist, Mumbai
Hi gout is a very severe disease, it affects joints, heart and kidneys. Most people forget that uric acid which deposits in joints can deposit in heart and kidneys too. So basically besides most painful joints it can kill also. Also as disease progresses the arthritis spreads and can have a devastating effect (google gouty arthritis, gouty top, gouty joint, gouty erosions images). The treatment is very simple, but to be taken continuously. Also its a widespread misconception that you should stop dals. Dals are very healthy source of protein, and they need not be stopped in gout. Gout is a very severe form of arthritis. It has acute and chronic phase. In acute phase requires immediate management in the form of certain drugs. Chronic phase requires treatment to prevent attacks and later lower uric acid. Also you do not need to stop dals or even non veg as is the common misconception. You can please choose a private consult if you need more detailed treatment and dietary advice. Attacks go gout can be treated with any form of therapy. But chronic gout requires a simple tablet in allopathy (like a single tablet in patients having high blood pressure), to prevent further attacks and prevent heart and kidney disease. No drug in ayurveda can do that.
