Sir I am from district shahjahanpur (up) I am 24 year old I am suffering from arthritis from last 10 years Some of my tests are C reactive protein 21 mg/l Ra factor 17.8 iu/ml Uric acid 5.6 mg/dl Anti CCP <0.5 u/ml HLA b27 negative SGPT (ALT ) 19 iu/l RA factor 17.8 iu/ml ESR 15 mm/hr I tried allopathy ayurvedic and homeopathic treatment . But still suffering from disease And now my ankle hips and knees fusion. From last two month I am taking these tablets Sazo 1g twice a day Calten d 500 twice a day Retoz 90. Once a day Folitrax 7.5. Twice a week Folvite 5 twice a week Uprise - d3 60 k once a week Depo -medrol once a week And now my condition is very very chronic . Very high pain in right hip And high pain in ankle, knee, wrist, shoulder and neck. Now I am unable to stand so laying on bed and crying all the day and night. Do note one thing when I take these medicine I feel better for 1 month but after one month pain increased very high level . Before 2 years I took these medicines and then I felt better for one month after that pain increased. So I stopped these medicine and got ayurveda treatment for 2 years but didn't get relief. So I again consulted to rheumatologist and he prescribed me again to take these medicine and now again 1 month relief and after that pain is very very high. Sir why these tablets give me relief only for one month. Is any medicine not suits me. Or I should reduce dose of tablets. Or tablets are not right choice for me. Because pain is so so high.

Hi lybrate-user sorry to hear about you. But if your joint are fused then replacement of hip or knee might be a better option. The medicatios seem to be good but if they are not working ask your rheumatologist to try anti tnf injections, might be a bit expensive but worthwhile.

You are a young diabetic. For control of diabetes a three prong strategy is used, that medicine, exercise and diet. I hope you are taking medicine under supervision of a diabetologist. You must do at least one hour of physical exercise every day, it should be combination of walking/ jogging, yoga, and weight training. Diet, the major portion of your diet must be salads and fruits. You must have large quantities of salad (cucumber, radish, little carrot, onion, tomato, raw broccoli, raw cauliflower, mushroom, papaya etc.). Also there every day you must eat adequate amount of protein, egg white, fish and chicken are good for you. Avoid meat as much as possible. Cut down on roti and rice as much as possible. Make salads and protein major part of your diet.

I want to ask is it necessary to take thyroid medication if my t3 and t4 are normal but tsh is raised from normal range. Kindly tell me.

MBBS, DNB (General Medicine)
Endocrinologist, Delhi
T3 and t4 may remain normal. Tsh being high indicates a signal that your thyroid gland is under stress. Especially so if your tsh is beyond 10. Free t3 and free t4 have higher significance in this regard then just total t3 and total t4. It is highly recommended that you keep on taking the medicines if you're already taking or you get tested for anti tpo to get the full picture before we start medicines.

In my family my grandmother, father is diabetic. Can it affect me? and how to loose weight?
You have a high chance if getting diabetes since you hv a family history. Keep a healthy lifestyle. Increase thirst, increased frequency of urination are some initial symptoms of diabetes but it can vary from being completely asymptomatic to non specific symptoms like weakness, loss of weight, tingling in feet, dry mouth, blurry vision, burning during urination. You need to follow a healthy lifestyle to prevent such metabolic diseases. Type 1 usually occurs at younger age due to insulin deficiency and treated with insulin injections. It can't be cured completely but you can keep it controlled by taking these precautions.

rSugars fluctuate depending on the diet,activity, medicine and the stress hormones released in the body. The way your body metabolises your sugar depends on the internal environment .so,it's actually not feasible to check sugars frequently. So,hba1c gives fairly average sugars over a period of 3 months. So,5.5 is good control, u need not worry but follow a balanced diet to me antain the same

I am of 42 Yrs old. I conducted a blood check up before 2 months back. My blood is showing the sugar level 165 and 215 respectively before & After food. And trygiceride was above 400. Doctor recommended Metformin for glucose. Again I conducted the sugar test recently. The sugar level is almost the same. I want to know whether there is a correlation with Trygiceride and sugar. Pls.

Yes. Lipids and diabetes are very much correlated. The body handling of carbohydrates (sugars) and fats (triglycerides) is disturbed in metabolic diseases like diabetes. So we advice reduced fat intake in diabetes as a very important dietary advice. But please remember that no mathematical absolute projection is present in any human ailment becuase we all are not the same. All that can be confidently said is that the body fat handling is disturbed in diabetes abd hence fats do increase in diabetes as compared to non diabetics. Regards.

Hi! Good evening sir / madam suffering from thyroid problem this week I tested TSH value 7.70 so which tablet I have to use? How much mg tablet?

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Mr Mohiuddin, Thanks for the query. I think this question is with regard to your wife, if so you should have provided her height and weight. That would have given some idea as to whether she is overweight or obese. Giving your details has no meaning. TSH 7.7 mU/L is above normal, but falls in the subclinical stage. That normally is not treated unless there are specific symptoms related to hypothyroidism. Thanks.

Mr. Lybrate-user, if your blood sugar level is fasting 138 mg/100 ml and pp 192 mg/100ml, it can not be called as fully developed diabetes. The reason is to diagnose diabetes the criteria are fbs >126 mg, pp >200mg and hba1c%>6.5. Your fasting meets the criteria but pp is in the region of pre diabetes or impaired glucose tolerance (igt). To confirm you may get a hba1c% test and glucose tolerance test (gtt) done. Those results will be able to give a clear answer.
