Usg thyroid may be done to evaluate thyroid gland architecture. Diet: have plenty of green leafy vegetables and fruits to balance the nutrition as nutrition deficiencies exaggerate thyroid symptoms. Your treatment needs further evaluation clinical radiological etc.

The safest and best way is diet. Bariatric surgery will fail if your diet remains same. So for any method surgical/diet/ excercises /machines/ medications will not work untill you have control on diet. And diet does not mean staying hungry. Balanced diet helps in controlling all disease and nutritional deficiencies aggrevate them. Abundand fruits and vegetables in diet have all essential nutrients with best bioavailability to the body. And so this diet is the balanced and most natural diet. This normalises weight, nutrients and balance in the body. Breakfast= fruits only. Abundant amount. Lunch/dinner= half plate salad, 1 katori sprouts, green vegetables 2 to 3 katori, daal 2 to 3 katori, only 1 roti in one meal.(quantity are relative and to be varied depending upon total meal quantity which can be any quantity as per your hunger) evening time fruits are also good. Stop having: milk, milk products, refined foods, packaged food of any kind like bread namkeen buiscuits maida etc. As these have all kinds of adulteration now a days with reports of urea level exceeding the limit even in mother dairy milk. Do light excercise for two hours daily slowly without straining yourself. Have plenty of fluids and water daily.

Thanks for the query. It is difficult to give an opinion whether you should take Cardace 2.5 without knowing all the details like blood glucose control, HbA1c%, creatinine & urea level. Plus the blood cell counts. Only mentioning low counts is not the info I can rely. Thanks.

Mr. Lybrate-user, masturbation whether done daily once or more often, does not lead to any problem. But diabetes if not well controlled can definitely cause erectile dysfunction and even premature ejaculation. So it is essential to control blood glucose strictly. Fasting should be around 100 mg. Pp 150 to 160 mg/ 100 ml & hba1c%<6.8. If this is achieved and maintained throughout, then most of the long term complications associated with diabetes can be delayed or even prevented. Another important aspect is you have grade 2 obesity with 35.15 bmi. Your ideal body weight should be 60 kgs. This will hinder in achieving tight blood glucose control. You have to seriously work on weight reduction. Even a 5 to 8 % reduction will help in better control. If you want any specific guidelines please come in a private conversation with following details: fasting, pp blood glucose levels, hba1c%, dietary pattern and extent of daily exercise being done. Then I will be able to help. Thanks.

Hi, My husband is 32 year old and he has hypothyroidism. Kindly suggest how to control it.
Lybrate-user, if hypothyroidism is confirmed, then treatment with thyroxine tablets has to be initiated, which will control all the symptoms. Dose has to be decided on the basis of body weight, t4 & tsh levels. Plus soy beans, soy containing products, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, radish, peanuts and coffee have to be avoided. Tablet should be taken early morning and nothing to be taken for one and half to two hours after that. Should consume more of green leafy vegetables, salads and fruits. Also only use whole grain flour for chapati & roti. Np maida and food made out of it. Should exercise for at least 1 h a day. Thanks.

I am 28 year old and suffering from hypothyroid since last 6 years, please suggest me somethng.

MBBS, DNB (General Medicine)

I am 28 year old and suffering from hypothyroid since last 6 years, please suggest me somethng.
Dear lybrate-user, hypothyroidism is the suboptimal functioning of your thyroid gland. The hormone which is produced is in less quantity than what is required by the body. This hormone is very important for the normal functioning of many things-and that is why underfunctioning of this gland leads to far-reaching disturbances in the body. Some of the symptoms that you suffer because of hypothyroidism are increased tiredness, hair fall, constipation, dry skin, decreased libido etc. The simple rule here is that the hormone is deficient or less in quantity. So the simple solution is to supplement this hormone in the body. The the medicine that is given to you in hypothyroidism is actually a supplement of this hormone only. Which basically means that we are replacing the decreased quantity of this hormone by giving it in the form of a tablet. So all you need to do to save yourself from the ill effects of hypothyroidism is to just take one tablet a day that replaces your decreased hormone and keeps you fit and healthy. Regards.

If tsh is above 20 then you r in hypothyroid state not hyper. And if this is after treatment then get your medications checked. Impaired throid affects memory and concentration. It will be settled once thyroid levels are maintained in the normal range. T3 t4 tsh full report needed. For further advice.

The sugar levels usually are low at fasting even in diabetic patient because after 8 to 10 hrs after meal glucose is bound to be low, after food if your control is good then pp level should be closer to 140 mg/100ml. However the levels mentioned by you are high because the treatment is not adequate. In a well controlled patient rbs could be about 120 - 130 mg/100ml you need to take some additional drugs to control sugar level. Please tell me some more details like weight, height, waist circumference, hba1c % and time spent on exercise daily. Then I can suggest some changes for you.

Be on strict diabetic diet. Perform regular exercises or go for 1hr walk daily. Get your sugar levels checked every month and visit your doctor at regular intervals for follow up. You can take 1tsf of methi powder mixed with water in the morning on empty stomach. Chew 5-6 neem leaves in the morning. Take bittergourd juice or koolkol juice (0ne glass) on empty stomach in the morning. All these will help to keep your sugar levels under control. Diabetes can only be controlled and cannot be cured. Hence it is not possible to remove it from your body.

hypothyroidism is the deficiency of the thyroid glands to produce thyroid hormone. it is a disease which is often incurable ,as there are no means to regenerate the depleting gland . but there are oral thyroid medicines available which can make up for the deficiency. so, please continue with your medicine and check your thyroid profile at regular intervals.

Hello Sir, It depends on how high your TSH is. If it is above 10 and your T4 and T3 are normal and you are having symptoms you may be asked to go on tablets. If TSH is between 5-10, you can wait and watch without taking tablets and will be asked to get repeat TSH and T4 levels done once every 3 months. If TSH is very high, say above 20 and T4 and T3 are low then you definitely need to be on tablets. Initially you would need to do the tests once every 3 months. Once the TSH comes to normal range and your thyroxine tablet dose is stabilised you can repeat the tests once every year. Eat a well balanced diet, reduce consumption of sweets, sugars and refined carbohydrates Increase your protein content - dairy products, dals, eggs, non-veg. You can take nuts, flax seeds. Eat plenty of vegetables. Hope this helps you Thank you.
