Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Diabetes in the long run does affect kidney function. Persistent hyperglycemia leads to certain damage to the filtering unit in kidney known as glomerulous. That leads to protein in urine. Initially there is microalbuminuria. But when the damage is more it leads to macro-albumin uir. In your case 700 mg of protein means it is macro albuminuria. It is a matter of concern. You will have to maintain very strict glucose control with FBG < 100 mg, PP 160 to 170 mg & HbA1c% <7. Plus get a kidney function test done to see the levels of serum creatinine and urea. Thanks.

Hi My height is 5.7 inches and my weight is 107kgs. Over weight. Some one advised to check my thyroid levels. T3 and T4 are normal but TSH is <0.01. I tried to test again, report show the same. Can I know more about this.

Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Mr. Lybrate-user, thyroid report is fine, except that tsh is a bit low. But that does not appear to be the cause of tour being over weight. In fact you are having grade 2 obesity with a bmi of 36.33 kg/m2 (normal <23 kg/m2). Your ideal body weight should be 70 kgs. This needs to taken care, by regular exercise and diet control it is better if you join a gym, and start exercise under the guidance of a qualified instructor, plus regulate the diet. Aim at reduction of 5 to 8 kg of present weight. That will give a considerable relief.

There is any homeopathy tablet to reduce my thyroid level from 4.49 to 2.00 ml Please do name the tablet. Thanks.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Hypothyroidism is a hormone deficiency disorder. Here thyroid gland is not producing enough or almost nil hormone. This hormone (Thyroxine) is required every day for all metabolic functions in the body. If not supplemented then all the symptoms of hypothyroidism are seen troubling the person. Therefore, only treatment to reduce TSH level is taking Thyroxine tablets in adequate quantity. There is no other medicine in any alternative medical branches. Plus you are a young lady, post marriage conception or fertility depends on maintaining TSH <3 mU/L. So my suggestion is take adequate dose of levothyroxine tablet. If you have any doubts please come back. Thanks.

Now, you have to wait. We need to know the details of usg report. In early pregnancy if heart beat is not there, we can repeat the scan but in relatively advanced cases, we have to accept the reality.

Hello doctor, I was given 50 mg thyronorm tablet for two months as I have 5.972 TSH level. I would like to know how long does it take to come back my TSH level to normal.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. For TSH to come to normal (provided if the dose of Thyroxine being taken is adequate), it will approximately 6 to 8 weeks. So one needs to check TSH level after a gap of 6 to 8 weeks after starting the dose of thyroxine. But if the dose is less than needed, then TSh may not come down to desired level. Unless TSh is brought down to 3 to 4 mU/L all the symptoms are not in control. Thanks.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
your current test also shows tsh levels fairly high, so continue at the same dosage level. Plus keep doing periodic thyroid assay (once every 8 weeks or so, to see if the thyroxine dosage is adequate or needs to be increased. I am sure you are aware of taking thyroxine tablets in the early morning on empty stomach and nothing to be taken after that for 2 hs. Plus avoid soya and soya containing products, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, radish, mustard, pea nuts and coffee. Consume more green leafy vegetables. Salads, use whole grain flour for making rotis and chapatis. Exercise regularly to avoid weight increase.

In human blood plasma, the reference range of uric acid is typically 3.4-7.2 mg/dL (200-430 µmol/L) for men (1 mg/dL=59.48 µmol/L), and 2.4-6.1 mg/dL for women (140-360 µmol/L) As you are normal the swelling can be due to sprain or detailed check up is needed.

DIABETES AND LIFESTYLE CHANGES Diabetic diet is not a matter of deprivation or avoidance but of healthy eating habits. Genetic susceptibility appears to play a powerful role in the occurrence of type 2 DM, but the current epidemic likely reflects marked changes in lifestyle. Decreased physical activity and increased energy consumption have together promoted obesity, which is a strong risk factor for diabetes. Nutrition is an integral component of prevention, delayed onset and management of diabetes. Goals of diabetes management: Provide a nutritionally sound meal Attain and maintain blood glucose levels in the normal range as far as possible To attain and maintain desirable weight To maintain healthy levels of blood fat i. E. Cholestrol and triglycerides To prevent long term complications of diabetes Healthy eating; 60% of the calories should come from carbohydrates 12%-20% from protein 20% -35% from fats Food should be distributed equally throughout the day Choose foods from all food groups in all major meals Choose foods high in fiber as it slows digestion and gives a feeling of satiety Total fat and saturated fat should be limited, some amount of fat is essential for important body functions and it also helps slow gastric emptying. Whole grains should be chosen over refined cereals like sooji, sago, white bread, maida Whole dals have a very low GI index and should be included daily EXERCISE: · Exercise helps diabetics lower blood glucose · It helps the body use insulin better Exercising helps one control weight, develop lean muscle and reduce body fat Maintain adequate level of physical activity so as to achieve fitness and a negative energy balance 30 to 45 min of brisk walk daily is recommended.

Hi, as mentioned there are some reports suggesting that using ladies finger (okra) does help in reducing blood sugar, but these are only studies in rats in laboratory. So extrapolating that effect on to human being is not good. It is a good green vegetable, gives vitamins, potassium and fibers etc. But as a treatment for diabetes it is not supported by any clinical studies. One can consume it in good quantity because it is a good vegetable.

Sir my mother is suffering from thyroid TSH=5.9 from last 20 yrs. Is this disease not curable?
she has hypothyroidism a condition due to deficiency of thyroxine hormone, produced by thyroid gland. This leads to increase in tsh levels. To correct the condition treatment with thyroxine tablets has to be continued for life time. There is no cure. Ask her not to stop the treatment by listening to some body's advise.

My mother having hypothyroidism and weight gain. She wants to reduce weight. Please suggest.
Mr. Lybrate-user, if hypothyroidism is in control with tsh values aroun 3 to 4 mu/l, then efforts to reduce weight do succeed. So please see that her tsh levels are maintained in that range. Then let her take a diet that gives exact calories based on her ideal body weight (54 kgs), plus she should exercise daily for at least 1 hour, brisk walking is a good option. Thanks.
