I am 47 years old. I'm a BP patient and I do consume alcohol. I'm observing that my hands tend to shake. For instance, when I'm having my food with right hand they shake and even my head shakes a little when I'm in anger or during adrenaline. First I thought of not asking this question because I found it a little embarrassing but I'm posting this question because my kids and my wife observed it. Please help.

Dear Mr. Lybrate-user, your problem is quite common in cases of long standing addiction of alcohol. You need to stop taking alcohol immediately. However I can understand that is not so easy to quit such an addiction. It will need a lot of will power to abstain yourself from alcohol. Here I am stating few rules which will effectively help you. Firstly:- reduce the amount of alcohol you consume daily. Secondly:- do not drink alcohol too quickly. A 30 ml peg of alcohol needs upto 30 minutes to get absorbed in our body. Third:- mix 60 drops of homoeopathic mother tincture acid sulph q in the water with which you will prepare your peg. Follow the aforesaid rules daily. Within 15 days your craving for alcohol will be reduced.

Mild swelling post operative over forehead and eyes is normal. That will resolve over few days. Do not worry about that. And about his behavior, there are some changes in behavior after brain injury especially in case of frontal lobe. So give him some time. All will settle with time.

Mr. Lybrate-user, you should have been on thyroxine hormone, as tsh is too high, showing severe hypothyroidism. Plus you will have to avoid soy beans, soy containing products, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, radish, peanuts and coffee. Consume good deal of green leafy vegetables, salads and fruits. Use whole grain flour for chapati nad roti. Do not use food made of refined flour like maida. Plus you will have to take a restricted diet that provides exact calories based on ideal body weight (80 kgs). Your bmi is 34.87 kgs showing grade 2 obesity. Most important is immediate tsh reduction. Thanks for the question.

A level TSH 100 shows a highly uncontrolled hypothyroidism. The direct evidence for controlled hypothyroidism is a normal report of tsh which shows that it is within range. If the tsh is higher than the upper range then the dose will be increased and if the tsh is lower than the lower range then the dose will decreased. If the tsh is within range then you have controlled hypothyroid state and the dose will be carried on as such. Currently if she is on any medicine then the dose needs to be escalated and if she is not on any medicine then she needs to be started ASAP.

If she is still on medicine or just finished, she might take some time to recover. Till then give her nutritious food and some multivitamins.
