Mr. Lybrate-user, if hypothyroidism is in control, then tsh should be 3 to 4 mu/l, at that level all the symptoms are well in check. So please look at tsh if not as desired then dose of thyroxine may have to be increased. Further, after 6 weeks check tsh again to see if it has returned to as mentioned above. Uncontrolled hypothyroidism can affect memory. As regards itching in ear you may have to consult an ent specialist and for cough, meet your local gp. Thanks.

I am a 60 year old man. With random blood sugar 175 and fasting sugar 90. My doctor has prescribed me metformin but I do not take it as it decreases my blood sugar drastically. I feel sleepy all the time and I sleep while sitting. The dangerous part is that I feel sleepy while driving and occasionally my fingers get tingly. Why is this?

Your blood sugar level can be controlled by diabetic diet 1200k cal and, 5 km daily walk. Sleeppiness and tingling may be due unstable blood sugar. Please consult your doctor to change drugs/modify dose.

I am suffering from thyroid and present tsh 5.07 what could be the dose.

MD - Internal Medicine, MBBS
Endocrinologist,
I am suffering from thyroid and present tsh 5.07 what could be the dose.
You can take Nutrient-rich foods that improve your health may also benefit your thyroid gland, antioxidant-rich fruits and vegetables more plenty of water: Blueberries, tomatoes, bell peppers, and other foods rich in antioxidants can improve overall health and benefit the thyroid gland. Eating foods high in B vitamins, like whole grains, may also help. Selenium: Tiny amounts of selenium are needed for enzymes that make thyroid hormones to work properly. Eating selenium-rich foods, such as sunflower seeds or Brazil nuts, can be beneficial. Tyrosine: This amino acid is used by the thyroid gland to produce T3 and T4. Taking a supplement may help, avoid oily foods,junk foods, go for walk. Tests every 3 to 6 months.i.e. t3,t4,tsh, also do vit.D. and vit. B., s.calcium. you can take tab. thyronorm 75 mcg before meal.

Mr. Lybrate-user, your lipid levels are fairly normal. Hdl (good cholesterol) is slightly low, tgl os a little more than normal. These levels are in no way causing any problem related to heart as you are suggesting. If there is any doubt in mind meet a cardiologist or just get an echo cardiogram done. My advise please do regular exercise, avoid high fat containing foods, refrain from smoking and alcohol (if you are indulging in to). Adapt a healthy life style, then there should be no problem. Your lipid levels do not need any drug treatment. Thanks.

Doctor has diagnosed symptoms of thyroid. What precautions I should take so that my disease is cured?

Doctor has diagnosed symptoms of thyroid. What precautions I should take so that my disease is cured?
If the diagnosis is hypothyroidism, then treatment with thyroxine tablets is for life time. Precautions are do not take soy beans, soy containing products, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, peanuts, mustard and coffee. Also avoid high fat milk products, sweetened aerated drinks and fructose corn syrup containing products. Plus diet should be controlled so that weight is not increased as hypothyroidism leads to weight increase.

Hello, For a person with diabetes it is better to avoid very sweet dry fruits. But if glucose is well controlled with fasting around 100 mg, PP 150 to 170 mg & HbA1c%<7, then taking 2 to3 dates occasionally is good enough. Thanks.

you are having pcod that is not a disease but a change in the body. you look unmarried. you have to think of cutting down your weight. ideally the problem in you is anovulation. unless you ovulate regular your periods wont come. but the treatment is ideally started after you get married as you dont need ovulation now. even if you take tablets now your periods would come regularly till you are on the tabs but once you stop them the periods would return back to the what they were before. so be patient and dont bother about your periods

Type 2 diabetes can be treated with cupping therapy with only 30% success rate due to the fact that the pancreas are located deep inside the viscera behind the liver. However, a much higher success rate is achieved by applying cupping therapy.

How should Fasting Blood Sugar (FBS) and 2 hour Post Prandial Blood Sugar (PPBS) testing be done properly? Not many are aware of this. Details:
The term Fasting means "no caloric intake for atleast 8-10 hours. This means you should not take any food or drink that contains calories during the 8-10 hours before testing. Thus, plain water is the only thing that can be taken. Usually, FBS is done early in the morning. If you take medicines then, continue taking them as usual. If you exercise daily, do so. But do NOT exercise only for that day alone. It can be dangerous and also will give a wrong report.
Once your blood sample is taken, have your regular breakfast. Note the time of starting breakfast. PPBS is to be taken exactly 2 hours from this time.And NOT 2 hours after finishing.
Some people believe that the food you had for dinner the previous night will affect your FBS the next morning. This is wrong.

Mr. Lybrate-user, the various things you have mentioned are some what inter related but everything can not be predicted as you may be thinking. Various things can cause problem with heart. High cholesterol can cause blocks in the coronary artery which can lead to angina or later myocardial infarction (heart attack). High blood pressure puts extra work load on the heart. Diabetes does affect large blood vessels (coronary artery) and also aids dyslipidemia. Tests like echocardiogram and angiography do help in identifying possible causes leading to heart attacks.

Hello, Looking at weight and height this person has grade 1 obesity with a BMI of 32.74 kgs/M2. This itself is the major contributor for increased blood glucose. His ideal body weight should be 67 kgs, he carries an excess weight of 25 kgs. By brining down the weight to near normal blood glucose will come down. Fasting 127 mgg & 137 mg suggests there is diabetes. Check the HbA1c%, that will give a clear idea. SGPT is more, so alcohol has to be stopped. Taking even occasionally is also not advised. Diet should be restricted to provide calories based on ideal body weight (67 X 20 =1340 calories/day). Thanks.

In my recent blood test, my SGOT and SGPT levels are 50 and 87, and my thyroid test TSH (CLIA) LEVEL is 9.25, which are above normal. Please suggest, what should I do? Is there something really very serious?

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Mr Ashish, The liver enzymes show a marginal increase, where as TSH level is very high, signifying presence of hypothyroidism. This needs immediate treatment with thyroxine tablets. If you are taking alcohol then it is better to stop that habit, which will help reducing liver enzymes. But hypothyroidism needs to treated urgently.
