You have subclinical hypothyroidism. Its treatment is given in selected patients. If you have already started treatment, then I suggest two weeks is a short period to repeat the test because it takes at least 4-6 weeks for it to settle. Repeat it after 4 weeks and consult your doctor.

What is reason of diabetes?
There are mainly two types of diabetes - t1 dm & t2dm. T1 is due to no insulin production by the beta cells of pancreas. These patients survive only on insulin injections. T2 is due to either lack of insulin secretion or resistance to its action due to excess fat or both. This is seen in later age and is familial. Obesity and inactivity and migratiobn are main causes.

lybrate-user, If you are having hypothyroid then it is essential to control it effectively with TSH maintained between 3 to 4 mU/L. If not then efforts to reduce weight will not succeed. So first check the TSH level. You have grade 3 obesity, with 41.79 kgs/M2 BMI. This is a very tough situation. Your ideal body weight should be 60 kgs. So your diet should be based on that weight. Plus you will have to do a considerable amount of exercise daily. Dietary restrictions have to be very strictly adhered to. Caloric intake has to drop down to around 100 to 1200 calories per day. This can be very tough to sustain. Thanks.

Thyroxine therapy is not bringing down my TSH levels inspite of maximum dose of 250 mcg per day . Please advise what to do ?

You have to follow correct diet as advised by your doctor, light exercise like walk for about 40 minutes on about 5 -6 days in a week, regular visit to your doctor for monitoring of blood sugar levels and review of medications. Get blood test for sugar in morning (fasting), 1 1/2 hours after morning principal meal and just before dinner. Show the report to your doctor and take his advice. Regular detail check up once 3 - 6 months for detection of diabetes complications if any.

Your data show that you are obese. Obesity promotes diabetes. Apart from taking regular medications you have follow few things very meticulously. Try and maintain blood sugar levels as close as possible to normal. Hba1c should be below 7per cent. To reduce weight you have to cut down your food intake by at least 29 per cent daily and increase exercising to more than one h every day. Avoid deep fried foods, egg yolk and red meat. No mangoes, bananas, grapes and chikkoos. Increase intake of green salads. This has to be followed for a very long time.

lybrate-user, Results show that there is hypothyroidism, due to which there will be problem with menstruation. There can be irregular periods or heavy bleeding. The report mentions some standard values for reference. That is only for informing people about what should be the level of TSH during three different periods of pregnancy. You need to start treatment for hypothyroidism. Thanks.

Hello lybrate-user. Even nicotine chewing gum can not cure tobacco addiction. Unless he develops very strong willpower. And get his HBA1C checked which reflects 3 months average sugar.
