Mr. Lybrate-user, tsh level above 6 milli units is considered as sub clinical hypothyroidism. Usually treatment is given after the tsh level crosses 10 milli units / ml. Your bmi is 34.43 kgs/ m2, which is grade 1 obesity. Is the weight increase recent one or you have been having this from earlier? because hypothyroidism does lead to weight gain. Some experts are of the opinion even at sub clinical level, it is better to give thyroxine tablets. That is done if any symptoms related hypothyroidism are noticed. You should avoid soy beans, soy containing products, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, radish, peanuts, mustard and coffee. Use iodinated salt. Exercise regularly and take a restricted diet.

Dear Lybrate User, It is good that you have kept your weight under control and also have Sugar levels in check. Since you have been at it for 14 years, you should never take it as a hurdle to being fitter and better. To improve your health you can take more proteins. Add fast walk and yoga to your exercise routine. Try to do 5 sets of Surya Namaskar daily. After every week add one additional set. Drink lots of water and take fruits like Apple and Papaya. Take about 10-15 almonds every day. Reduce sugars or refined carbs if any. Improve your health bit and bit and you can stay fit forever.

first and foremost is to control hypothyroidism. If that is not done then, weight reduction is not possible. If that achieved, then you can work on weight reduction. There is no easy way for reducing the weight. You have to following things: 1) take a restricted diet, that gives exact calories based on your ideal body weight (height in cms - 100 = kgs) and your daily exercise quantity. 2) spend at least 1 hour every day on exercise, brisk walk covering 5 to 6 kms in 1 hour, should be undertaken, 3) avoid sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods and pastries, 4) consume more of green leafy vegetables, salads and fruits, 5) avoid high fat cheese, butter, margarine and other saturated fats 6) if possible join a gym where you can do workouts under instruction. But most important is following a strict dietary regimen.

lybrate-userji, Thanks for the query. When on treatment with levothyroxine for hypothyroidism, it is necessary to maintain TSH <3 mU/L. Then only one is free from all the symptoms of that condition. Therefore, present level of 1.33 mU/L is really good. There is no need to reduce the dose of thyroxine that you are taking. You should check TSh once in 3 to 6 months to see if it in the desired range. If level goes below 0.5 mU/l then dose may have to be reduced to 12.5 mcg per day. Thanks.

Type 2 Diabetes - What Factors Can Put You At Risk?

Type 2 Diabetes - What Factors Can Put You At Risk?

Type 1 diabetes is commonly referred to as juvenile diabetes and is mostly witnessed among young people. It can also occur in adults. In this condition, the body doesn’t produce enough insulin or completely stops producing insulin. The immune system, which saves the body from foreign microbes, attacks the cells that are responsible for producing insulin. The treatment methods include taking insulin shots, oral insulin intake, taking healthy diet, increased physical activity and controlling blood pressure and cholesterol levels.

Type 2 diabetes is a condition wherein the body refuses to use insulin in order to carry glucose to each and every cell of the body. The pancreas try to produce more insulin in order to counter the condition but soon give up due to an increased blood pressure. The treatment plan includes medication, making lifestyle changes, and controlling blood-sugar and cholesterol levels.

Gestational diabetes is observed in many pregnant women. The hormones produced during pregnancy can block insulin to be used by the body. While insulin resistance is common during pregnancy, failure of the pancreas to fill in the additional insulin in the body can result in gestational diabetes. Women who are overweight are more likely to develop this condition. Although gestational diabetes goes automatically after the baby is born, it often recurs in the form of type 2 diabetes in a later stage of life.

Risk factors for diabetes

  1. Weight: Being overweight is a primary risk factor for diabetes. An increased amount of adipose tissue increases the risk of insulin resistance by the body. It is therefore essential to shed as much weight as one can to avoid diabetes.
  2. Inactivity: Immobility increases the risk of diabetes in a person. It stacks up glucose in the body, making it difficult for the body to use glucose and convert it into energy. A daily routine which is devoid of physical activity ensures fat storage in the body, which can turn into type 2 diabetes.
  3. Family history: Diabetes, especially type 2, is closely linked with family history. If a person has diabetes, it is very likely that his immediate family or extended family has a history of diabetes.
  4. Ethnicity: African-Americans, people from the Indian subcontinent, Latinos, etc., are more likely to suffer from diabetes compared to their American or European counterparts. Lifestyle and eating habits are the major reasons for diabetes in these races.
  5. Age: Age has a direct correlation with diabetes. The age group of 45–65 is considered to be more diabetes-prone. Inactivity, immobility, and an increase of sugar intake are some of the primary reasons for developing diabetes in this age group.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!
