Dear Sir | Ma'am, I'm 23 years old, Female. I'm pregnant since 5 months. Since the start of my pregnancy doctor didn't advised to do the thyroid test and on my fifth month due to shift in the location the other doctor had suggested me to take thyroid test and my values where T3 1.36ng\dl, T4 - 7.69 ng \ dl and TSH - 5.420 uiU\ml. So the doctor said it is quite high in your fifth month so prescribed throform 50 mcg. I heard the first trimester baby totally depends upon mom for his\her thyroid. So does my thyroid level would have impacted my babies brain? My query is how often the thyroid range elevates? Since during my fifth month it found to be 5.420 so approximately how much it could have been in my first trimester?

Priyaji, As you have mentioned in the first trimester fetus entirely depends on maternal thyroxine, hence even symptom less hypothyroidism also may affect the fetal brain development. Clinical trials show that the development of intelligence may be affected. Recommended TSH levels through out the pregnancy should be 2 to 2.4 milli units /ml. Please maintain TSH at this level.

From the limited info you have given, your wife seems to have late onset type 1 diabetes. If her blood sugars are well controlled, HbA1c is below 7% and she is not gaining weight, Insulin is perfectly OK. But beware of hypoglycemia. For more info on this condition, read my "Health Tips" section.

Lybrate-user, I think you are talking about" hot fomentation" which means applying heat to the affected part by using a rubber bag filled with hot water or using a cloth dipped in hot water. It is definitely useful in relieving stiffness and pain. But it will depend on the cause of low back problem. By and large it is useful.

Lybrate-user, with bilirubin 1.7 mg/dl, there is presence of jaundice. It is not such a serious condition. He should continue taking normal food. Since he is also has diabetes, the precautions being taken in diabetes are good enough. He should avoid sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries, bakery items, items made out of maida, sweetened aerated drinks (colas), sweet corn syrup containing products, highly processed food products, red meat, high fat containing milk products. Should consume more of green leafy vegetables, salads and permitted fruits. Refrain totally from alcohol and smoking. Total diet should provide exact calories needed on the basis of his ideal body weight, exercise done daily and blood sugar levels. Thanks.

His diabetes is not properly controlled. Diabetes affects all organs in the body ? Eyes, kidneys, nerves, reproductive system all are affected, In fact, from toe to hair. For diabetic control, patient should be under proper guidance for regular follow up and advice. 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), & HbA1C (inform me) 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. There are different diet plans of varying calories for each person depending on his activity & lifestyle.

If the creatinine rise is due to diabetic kidney disease it is not completely reversible. She will need to alter her diabetic medicines though.

Hello, Both Honey and table sugar have glucose and fructose. So, there is not much benefit in substituting sugar for honey. Infact honey is far more sweeter than sugar. 1 tea spoon of honey has more number of calories than 1 tea spoon of sugar. So, if you must take honey, then consume it in only very small quantities, and please be aware that it will also raise your blood glucose values. You can eat 2 fruits everyday. You can eat the following fruits - apple, pear, orange, sweet lime, papaya, small bowl of melon or water melon, medium sized banana, pomegranate etc. I would advise you to avoid pineapple, mango, chikoo, custard apple etc. Hope this helps you. Thank you

Having diabetes makes high blood pressure and other heart and circulation problems more likely, because diabetes damages arteries and makes them targets for hardening (atherosclerosis). Atherosclerosis can cause high blood pressure, which if not treated, can lead to blood vessel damage, stroke, heart failure, heart attack, or kidney failure. You can consult me in private for detailed treatment which is available in Biochemic system of medicine depending upon symptomatically.

While diabetic neuropathy cannot be cured, there are treatments available to help manage some of the symptoms. Another treatment goal is keeping blood glucose levels under good control through a combination of diet and medication so that the neuropathy does not worsen. Keeping blood glucose levels under control has been shown to improve symptoms and prevent worsening of the pain. The pain of diabetic neuropathy can sometimes be managed with certain medications. Certain prescription antidepressants and antiseizure medications have been shown to be effective in relieving pain that originates in the nerves. Ask me privately.

What is a best treatment for the diabetes patient for diabetes type two, insulin is a best ya other is good medicine?

What is a best treatment for the diabetes patient for diabetes type two, insulin is a best ya other is good medicine?
Mr. Lybrate-user, diabetes mellitus occurs (t2) either due to lack of insulin or resistance to its action or both. In t1 there is total absence of insulin, beta cells of islets of langerhans in pancreas do not secrete any insulin. Since main reason is insulin deficiency, best drug for treatment is insulin. However, in t2 initially metformin is used, which helps in reducing resistance to insulin action and also helps in weight reduction. Then other drugs known as secretogogues (insulin secretion stimulators) are used. If diabetes is very severe with very high blood sugar levels and hba1c% >9, then insulin is preferred. So it depends on individual case and needs of each patient. There are multiple choices now, recent addition to treatment has been sglt-2 inhibitors, which act independent of insulin.
