I am 51 years old my tsh level is11 I have started with thermonorm 50 twice daily. Will my thyroid be treated and problem will go after sometime or I will have to tske medicine through out my life. I am shedding too much of hair will this problem will also go through the treatment.

Thyroid medicines need not be taken twice daily. Once daily is usually the dose frequency. This treatment is replacement therapy of deficient hormone in your body. Chances are that you would require this medicine on a very long period basis. So currently don't expect any withdrawal of medicine. Be informed about thyroid better. It helps to be convinced better by your self education.

A marginally elevated uric acid level alone need not be treated. Assuming you don't have any symptoms or are not on treatment for any other medical conditions.

Take chandraprabha vati 1-1 before food, mehanil 2-2 after food for 1 week & check again. Then consult for further medication & precautions. Till then start with reducing water intake to 1 ltr in 24 hrs and eating only twice a day. Cut back on all processed sugars.

In diabetic patient as such there is raised tendency to get the infection of any part of body but ear infection is mainly due to ear pricking or cleaning by yourself, so avoid cleaning your ear by your self,

Hello, Thanks for the query. If hypothyroidism is present, then adequate dose of Thyroxine hormone has to be taken to control all the symptoms of the disease. When on treatment TSH should be maintained between 3 to 4 mU/L, then only all the symptoms can be in check. Even the efforts to reduce weight do not show results if TSH levels are high. Only method is to take adequate dose of thyroxine and keep checking TSH level initially after about 8 weeks to see if the dosage is adequate. Thanks.

What kind of food should eat Diabetic person and What's treatment. Please explain in detail.

What kind of food  should eat Diabetic person and What's treatment. Please explain in detail.
Hye, Thanks for the query. For a diabetic it is best advised to have a diet planned as per the sugar levels, lifestyle and history. Though you can follow some guidelines - The sugar levels will fluctuate depending on what you ate or did not eat, stress levels and activity levels. You have to try and manage a balanced carb intake. Have small frequent meals. Do not fast for long hours. Your diet must include whole grains, seasonal fruits, vegetables, small amounts of nuts and dairy and pulses or dals or lean meats like chicken or fish and egg. Starchy vegetables need to be planned into the diet. Avoid a very heavy meal at one time. Avoid fruit juices, aerated drinks or sugarcane juice, honey, jaggery or sugar. Avoid junk foods. Exercise and stay active. Avoid exercise if sugar levels are above 250 mg/dl. Do not attempt to try out too many remedies as you could go into hypoglycaemia. Sleep well. It's all a matter of discipline.

Can people type 2 diabetic drink alcohol and smoking cigarettes? What is side effect? Liver function? Heart function? And lung?

Can people type 2 diabetic drink alcohol and smoking cigarettes? What is side effect? Liver function? Heart function?...
Mr. lybrate-user, A person with diabetes is advised to avoid smoking and alcohol. The reason is smoking tobacco, affects blood vessels, lungs as in any other person. But a person with diabetes has much weaker immune system, is prone to lung infections and cardiac problems. As regards alcohol, it gives empty calories, person fails to recognise hypoglycemic situation. Plus it affects nutrition, affects liver enzymes & can cause severe liver damage. Thanks.

I am 48 years old male I am diabetic have 150 at fasting suggest some ayurvedic and homeopathic medicine.

A proper measure for knowing and managing your diabetes will be to ensure a hba1c below 6.5%. My guess is you would be around 7.2-7.5%. Regarding diet, we indians have high carbohydrate diet. You have to closely observe your plate and you can come up with a better diet plan for yourself. To simplify it, identify the items which are carb rich in your plate and try to compensate the same with protein and fibres, for eg cut down a roti and increase sabji, dal or salad. To have a better control you can do a monthly self glucose monitoring 3 times a day and keep a track of your food with it. Check fasting sugar, sugar one hour prior your lunch and 2 hrs post lunch, and note down the details of your breakfast and lunch items. Modify as per my earlier suggestions and within a week you will see your blood sugar level responding. Then we will plan for meds. Best of luck and let me know if you need more info.

Alcohol is a direct source of increasing blood sugars. That is it easily gets digested and increases the blood sugar levels in the body. Therefore alcohol intake further only worsens the blood sugar levels in diabetic patients. It would be better to avoid alcohol intake to help managing sugars and therefore prevent the development of any diabetic complications further.
