The levels of t3 t4 and tsh should be worked up. A thyroid scan may be necessary to assess levels of thyroid functioning. After this a decision can be taken whether to withold your thyronorm pending a follow up or not. As far as vit d levels are concerned they can be continued based on their levels in the blood.

I am 64 yrs old with diabetes 2. Need to knock off 7 kgs more. What is fastest method.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology

I am 64 yrs old with diabetes 2. Need to knock off 7 kgs more. What is fastest method.
there is no fastest method of loosing weight. Looking at your height ideal body weight is 60 kg. Bmi is 26.97kg/m2, best way to reduce weight is to plan a loss of 2 kg per month, can be done by cutting 550 calories per day from existing intake, exercising regularly so that extra caloreis are burnt, which help in reducing about 1/2 kg per week. This approach will be better than any drastic reduction. If you want me to guide then come in a private conversation with the details like - fasting and pp sugar levels, hba1c%, medications being taken, level of physical activity and dietary pattern. The exercises that are to be planned should suit your age and capabilities. I am not sure if you are a person who has been exercising regularly earlier.

diabetic person it is essential to follow dietary guide lines like avoid sweets, direct sugar, deep fried foods, junk food and pastries. Sweets increase the blood sugar very quickly being a simple carbohydrate. If he wants to lead a complication free life then stopping sugar and sweet eating has to be followed. You may think of replacing sugar with sucralose,

Mr. Lybrate-user, if you are suferring with diabetes and hypertension, then it is a must that drugs for the conditions are taken regularly without fail. Plus you have exercise regularly for at least 1 hour a day and take a restricted diet that gives exact amount of calories based on your ideal body weight, extent of daily exercise and sugar levels. For hypertension reduce you salt intake to about 2.3 g a day.

Hi looking at your fluctuating sugar levels, it is better to shift to glargine the basal analogue insulin along with oral drugs (which can be reduced). Glargine is a long acting insulin needing just one prick a day. It will produce excellent control of blood sugar. Initial dosage can be 6 units once/d, to be increased based on fasting sugar level every alternate day by 2 units till target sugar level (say 100 mg or so) is achieved. For this self monitoring of sugar level is necessary. If you are willing I can guide you. In the long run this will be a better treatment.

The alcohol content of beer is less 5-9%, as compared to over 40% in case of whisky. The calorie count of beer is also important, as it varies from type to type. Avg is around 4-7 calories per ml. So, consume accordingly. Yes, you can take medicines with /before drinks as they are having calories.

Hypothyroidism - 4 Easy Tips to Help You Manage it

MBBS, MD - General Medicine, DM
Endocrinologist, Hyderabad
Hypothyroidism - 4 Easy Tips to Help You Manage it

The thyroid gland, in the lower front of the neck, releases hormones in the bloodstream that affect almost every part of your body, from your brain and heart, to your skin and muscles. It also controls metabolism which is the process of changing the food you eat into energy. When the thyroid gland does not produce enough thyroid hormone, it is called hypothyroidism.

Symptoms of hypothyroidism include:

  1. Constipation
  2. Hair loss and dry hair
  3. Dry skin
  4. Fatigue
  5. Sensitivity to cold
  6. Decreased heart rate
  7. Goitre (swollen thyroid glands)
  8. Weight gain and difficulty in losing that weight
  9. Persistent jaundice

Hypothyroidism is not curable, but it can be controlled with the right medication. Along with taking your medicines, you can also adopt the following lifestyle changes:

  1. Eat right: While there is no specific diet for hypothyroidism, you should consume vegetables, fruits, whole grains, healthy fats and lean proteins. Since gaining weight is a common symptom of hypothyroidism, eating the right things can help you maintain your weight.
  2. Regular exercise: Exercising can reduce stress, improve energy and help you maintain your optimum weight. Aerobics (for example, cardio), flexibility and strengthening workouts can help with hypothyroidism. Other than that, light weightlifting, yoga and walking, are also beneficial. Do not forget to consult your doctor before you start on any of these exercises.
  3. Reduce stress: Hypothyroidism is chronic, and the one thing that worsens chronic diseases is stress. Stress has serious repercussions on your overall health. So it is important to reduce your stress as much as you can. Meditate daily, at least for five minutes, and schedule a weekly massage to deal with your stress.
  4. Get enough sleep: Fatigue is a symptom of hypothyroidism; you feel tired and sluggish throughout the day. The best way to counter this is to establish a schedule for sleeping. Try to sleep and wake up every day at the same time in the night and in the morning. Generally, sleeping for seven to eight hours is recommended. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a endocrinologist and ask a free question.

Hello, as you said your sugar level and weight both are under control, there is no worry about that. But worry is about side effects of metadose tablets. It can cause sugars to go down or lactic acidosis. So be sure about these side effects and check your sugar regularly. If sugar is low, then dose of metadose tablet must be reduced. Also check your abg to find out acidosis. Second thing is check your daily calorie intake. If you are having less calories, you may feel weak and dizzy. One of the above tests will find out your problem.
