Hello, excess hunger is a symptom of diabetes along with excess urination and excess thirst. Better get your thyroid test done as well as blood sugar. Those resuls will give clear idea. Thanks.

How Sugar problem controlled and what kinds of precautions are taken in sugar problem?
Hi Type 1 diabetes can be controlled with insulin alone. Type 2 Diabetes can be controlled with exercise, proper diet and oral medications. Precautions to prevent complications in diabetes are: 1. Regular exercise and small frequent meals. 2 Regular follow up with diabetologist. 3. HbA1C every 3 months to make sure diabetes is under control, once it's within the target repeat every 6 months 4. Annual eye check up. 5. Annual blood and urine tests to look at the kidney function, liver function, heart, cholesterol and many others. 6. Drink plenty of water. 7. Sleep well. 8. Avoid stress, alcohol, smoking (active and passive). 9. Eat lots of fresh vegetables. Snack with fruits. 10. Maintain a healthy body weight. 12. Stay active.

Thyroid Gland Removal - Procedure and Aftercare

General Surgeon, Delhi
Thyroid Gland Removal - Procedure and Aftercare

The thyroid may be a small gland, but plays a large role in the functioning of the body. It is located just below the voice box. Along with producing hormones that help in the transportation of blood, it also helps regulate metabolism, keeps the organs functioning optimally and helps the body conserve heat. In some cases, when the gland produces excessive hormones or when it develops structural problems, it may become necessary to remove the thyroid gland. 

There are several ways of removing the thyroid gland. The most common amongst these are:

  1. Lobectomy: A lobectomy is performed when only half the thyroid gland is affected. In such a case, the doctor will remove only one of the two lobes. 
  2. Subtotal Thyroidectomy: In such cases, the doctor will remove the thyroid gland but leave behind a small amount of thyroid tissue. This tissue can preserve some thyroid function but hormone supplements are often required to supplement the production of hormones. 
  3. Total Thyroidectomy: In cases of thyroid cancer or when swelling and inflammation affects the entire thyroid gland, it may become necessary to remove the whole gland along with all thyroid tissues. 

You will need to be admitted into a hospital for a thyroid removal surgery. Once admitted, meet the surgeon and anesthesiologist to answer any questions you may have about the procedure. It is important not to eat or drink anything after midnight on the night before your surgery. The surgery is performed under anesthesia so you will not feel a thing. 

Once you are asleep, the surgeon will make an incision in your throat and remove a section or all of the thyroid gland. This procedure can take between 2 to 3 hours. After the surgery, you will be kept in observation for 24-48 hours.
The surgery can result in a slightly raised scar that can take upto 6 weeks to heal. You can resume normal daily activities a day after the surgery. However, it is advised to wait for a week before undertaking any strenuous activities. Your throat may feel sore for a few days following the surgery. This can be treated with over the counter pain medication. You may also develop hypothyroidism. 

The most major risk of a thyroid removal surgery is an allergic reaction to anesthesia. Other risks of this surgery are damage to the nerves connected to the vocal cords and damage to the glands controlling calcium levels in the body.

It appears that you are having both t2dm and hypothyroidism. Please understand both these conditions can be controlled only by taking regular medications. For diabetes one has to take oral anti- diabetic drugs or insulin injections and for hypothyroidism thyroxine tablets for the whole life. There is no escape from this. As regards food in case of diabetes you have to avoid direct sugar & sweets, plus deep fried foods and fruits like mangoes, bananas, chikoos & grapes. And maintain your weight near normal for your height which is a bmi of 23 kgs/ m2 yours is 25.16 kgs/m2. Plus no smoking and alcohol. This life style has to be followed strictly.

lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. For treating diabetes some times multiple drugs have to be used, because blood glucose control is not adequate just one or two drugs. Hence there is no worry, if more drugs are added in the treatment. It is importannt to bring fasting glucose < 100 mg, PP 160 to 180 mg & HbA1c% <7. Thanks.

Normal Uric acid levels are 2.4-6.0 mg/dL (female) and 3.4-7.0 mg/dL (male) Some diets that are rich in purine end up causing an increased production of uric acid. In other cases, it may be due to a completely sedentary lifestyle. Less intake of water also may be to blame in some cases as water plays an important role in washing out the excess of the uric acid. Regular usage of some medicines also cause the uric acid levels to rise. Another important factor is being overweight as obese people are much more likely to get gout as compared to those who have normal weight. It is a tragedy of the modern world that the superior advertising and marketing power of the allopathic system of medicine has eclipsed the good and genuine work of Homeopathy. This is largely because Homeopathic system of medicine cannot compete with the money power of Allopathy. Just because allopathy does not have any cure for gout, patients tend to think that there is no cure for gout at all. People are not aware of the great work that Homeopathy can do in the cure of gout. I cannot stress enough here that homeopathic medicines are pretty effective at curing the acute as well as the chronic gout You can easily take an online consultation for further treatment guidance and permanent cure without any side effects

You can discuss with your doc to start dual drug therapy. Metformin alone won't help in bring sugar level down. If you need any help from me then for detailed treatment consult privately.

I was detected with diabetes one month ago with fasting 200. I am 46 year old male.

I am 49 years old male having diabetes and high bp for the last 12 years. For the last 4 years my diabetes and bp have been more or less under control. I have been taking the following drugs for the last 4 years without any change: for diabetes: galvusmet 50/500 twice daily. Glimepride 2 mg twice daily. For high bp: olmat am 20 once a day. I regularly check my blood sugar and bp at home. My total cholesterol is under control. Mt hba1c reading last checked in nov 2014 was 7 (good control). I go for regular walking and jogging for at least 45 minutes 5 days a week. I am slightly overweight 83 kgs. I wish to know should I continue with the above medicines further or I need to change them, and if yes, what medicines should I take ?

It seems u r quite conscious for your health and taking medicines regularly and everything pretty under control. Still send me your last hba1c report, last 2 fbs pp2bs report, lipid profile report. As u r having diabetes and hypertension for 12 yrs, check your serum creatinine level and urine albumin level also, get an ecg and get fundus examination by ophthalmologist. Your wright is static or increased recently? any symptoms like east fatiguability, cold intolerance etc? and continue diet and exercise.
