I am 43 years my thyroid TSH is 150 last year October but again I tested this year August TSH is 117 and I started treatment of tablet 75 mg for 45 days again tested a week back TSH 15 Now what can I do.

MBBS, DNB

Kindly repeat TSH only after 3 months of changing the dose and that too if you have been taking the medication regularly. If TSH has still not normalized then increase the dose of medication by 12.5 microgram and again repeat test after 3 months.

Mam, srry to say, your hydroalpinx, is causing infertility, let me tell you bit clear IVF. Is the way you get conception, but untreated hydrosalpinx have lower conception rates than controls and it has been speculated that the tubal fluid that enters the endometrial cavity alters the local environment or affects the embryo in a detrimental way. Thus, many specialists advocate that prior to an IVF attempt, the hydrosalpinx should be removed. Lower abdominal pain, may be PID.

Hi, Is your father having any other symptoms Ina edition to weight loss like nausea, vomiting, stomach pain, constipation, fever, night sweats, any lumps in the body, any pain in the body, jaundice, urine or kidney problems, any skin problems etc? Weight loss can be due to many reasons. A few of them are mentioned below 1) general debility due to poor intake of food due to old age 2) infections like TB etc or any other chronic infections 3) diabetes 4) kidney failure, heart failure, liver failure etc 5) gastritis Lisa ding to nausea and lack of appetite 6) any tumours in body etc. All of the above would result in other symptoms in addition to weight loss. Only age related malnutrition in initial stages would give rise to weight loss without their symptoms. So I would suggest you to take him to a good general physician and get him throughly assessed. Hope this helps you. Thank you.

Mr anoop frequent urination can happen either due to uncontrolled diabetes or most often urinary tract infection. Apart from these there are many other reasons also. So it would be difficult to diagnose. I suggest get a routine urine examination done like microscopy, presence of pus cell and bacteria etc. Plus if your blood sugar levels are in proper control then frequent urination is not likely.

Mr. Lybrate-user, from your description it appears that both diabetes and hypertension are not in control. Bp should ideally be 120 to 130/70 to 80 mm hg. Your bmi is 24.91 kgs/m2, which is marginally high (normal <23 kgs/m2). You have not mentioned anything about blood sugar level and hba1c%. Unless all details are made available, difficult to comment. However, as regards bp you have to initiate treatment immediately. Thanks.

Hello Ms. lybrate-user Can you just provide some details that what is your sugar level - random, fasting & PP. One thing I want to tell you that diabetes is only a lifestyle hazard, you can treat your diabetes by just following a well structured diet. Any medicines will never cure your diabetes. Infact we have plenty of examples who have cured their diabetes by just following a good diet plan and too in a very short period of time. So I would suggest you to treat your diabetic condition with diet only instead of medicines. Hope you got your answer. If you have any query then you can text me anytime. Best Of Luck.

wat you have is impaired glucose tolerance. if you control your diet by avoiding sugary items, canned foods, excess salt in diet you can maintain balanced blood sugar levels. You need to cut down on carbohydrates, include soups, sprouts, oats, dryfruits and high fibre diet. Go for regular walk, start exercises, yoga, meditation, drink 2-3 litres water per day. Check your blood sugar levels regularly to keep a watch.

Hye. Food planning will depend on the amount of proteins that you need for the day. To decide the proteins, other nutrients many parameters need to be considered. This requires personalised planning. You don't want to end up eating low amounts of protein too. Cornflakes is not low protein, neither is it low sodium or potassium as well. You might want to skip packaged foods.

Can diabetes be cured by doing rigorous exercises regularly like jogging 5 km. Etc.

Can diabetes be cured by doing rigorous exercises regularly like jogging 5 km. Etc.
Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Type 2 Diabetes is a disease occurring due either to deficiency of insulin or resistance to its action or both. Fortunately it is a preventable disease if before it develops all the necessary care is taken like weight control, proper healthy diet and regular exercise. But once it is diagnosed then there is no way to control it other than taking appropriate medication along with diet control and exercise. Jogging 5 km is hardly a rigorous exercise. Jogging over 10 to 15 kms a day may be considered in that category. Thanks.

Hi, I am 28 years old, i am having thyroid problem and i am using neo-mercazole tablets since 3 years, but not cured my problem please tell me another way to reduce thyroid problem.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Hi, in hyperthyroidism usually anti-thyroid drugs like neo-mercazole are given for about 18 to 24 months. After that if thyroid function has not reverted to normal then other options are considered. Those include surgical removal or using radio active iodine to ablate the thyroid secreting cells. Because if neo-mercazole has not been able to suppress the activity of thyroid gland even after using for 3 years, then it may not benefit much. So you will have look for above mentioned options. Radioactive iodine is a really good option. Thanks for the question.

I am 23 year old, and have very bad asthma problem. Tried many sort of treatment but switched again back to inhalers. Was having problem of eczema & childhood which was treated through allopathic treatment at that time I didn't had asthma problem. But later after shifting to kerala my asthma problem started & used to take inhalers. Wen I was 17 I went for Ayurveda treatment with so much of restricted time table for certain food items for 2 year & I got better at initial stage I got all my allergy on my skin which so hard but doctor was saying thats to get cured with it. & only if I cure the inner allergy I would get better of asthma. I was so thin at that time & we I started curing asthma I also had put on my weight n was happy to get changed with better immunity. But suddenly I got a throat infection which really was under treated n he strictly advised not to take antibiotics which made it return frequently n I had developed a swelling on my leg n wen I went through a blood test I got aso titre so high. Which made me discontinue his treatment n I started taking pencillin400 n reduced d doses n now cured it completely but my asthma had returned severely. Then another blood test developed d problem of hypothyroidism. I started taking thyrox 150 n now d dose of 50. For this after 2 yrs I consulted a homeo doctor which was a nightmare for me as he said asthma is linked with thyroid problem n asked if I had any skin problem I said before I had he then prescribed some medicines n wid in a few days I got a bad itching on my fingers ful flare ups whole over my body oozing n weeping legs n hands I cant even sleep at night due to itching n that doctor was sounding angrily wen I saying my problem. N after 6 months also I dint cured n again went for an allopathic dermatologist n cured it. I just want to know if thyroid n asthma problem is linked n is it compulsory dat if I take treatment for asthma in Ayurveda or homeopathy I will have to face a tough time for my skin. Please doctors do reply. I really want to take your advice n go a head for treatment. Can hypothyroidism can b cured. N asthma also with out a flare ups n allergy break out?

Go for walk, Take plenty of water, high-carbohydrate foods such as potatoes, rice, pasta and bread. 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.
