Thyroid and prolactin can cause problem in conceiving. Correct those. You have to keep patience, although it's difficult. At the same time, pls have some basic fertility check up for both of you.

I am 26 year old female and I have high uric acid and cholestrol (hdl). What should I do?
Hello dear High triglycerides and cholesterol can cause atherosclerotic heart disease or narrowed coronary arteries in the heart can cause the symptoms of angina, when theheart muscle is not provided with enough oxygen to function. Decreased blood supply to the brain may be due to narrowed small arteries in the brain or because the larger carotidarteries in the neck may become blocked. This can result in a transient ischmic attack or stroke. Peripheral artery disease describes gradual narrowing of the arteries that supply the legs. During exercise , if the legs do not get enough blood supply, they can develop pain , called claudication . Other arteries in the body may also be affected by plaque buildup causing them to narrow, including the mesenteric arteries to the intestine and the renal arteries to the kidney. Change life style .do meditation,yoga, Go walk daily, do any one physically activity daily i.e.play any game., Avoid fast foods,oily foods,junk foods,alcohol,smoking,fatty foods, non-veg.,avoid stress,take plenty of water in day time. And 1 glass of water before bed at night. use flax oil, omega-3 fatty meal or cap., take .green veg., whole grain. GARLIC,. Cod liver oil. Take anti cholesterol medicines . Cap. Ecosprin gold-10 at night daily. for uric acid take tab. zyloric 100 mg once a day.

This will considerably improve your metabolic activity and helps reducing your weight. 3- Split your meals and eating in moderate amount:-Splitting your meals into 3-4 times per day (including snacks)and eating in fair and consistent amount , improves your metabolic rate as the food u take is not concentrated at one time. 4- No long Gaps and skipping of meals:-There should be no long gaps between meals. Never miss out breakfast. 5- No overeating:-Never eat in a bulk on one time .Try to have moderate amount of food each time u eat. It will help maintain your blood sugar at a healthy level and won’t let it to fluctuate.

Rather choose a variety of foods including whole grains, fresh vegetables, salads, fruits, low fat dairy products. 9- Take high-fibre and complex carbohydrates:-like oats as they are easily broken down to basic sugars. Add whole grain foods in your diet. Avoid carbohydrates like white bread, pasta, pizza , candies, and snacks .Instead include high-fiber carbohydrates like wheat bran, flaxseed and methi seeds to your wheat flour.

I Had Hyper Thyroid more than 10 Years. Now I Lost So Many Teeth. Is the effect of that disease?
Yes, there is absolutely a link between hyperthyroidism and dental health. In fact, there is such a strong link between thyroid problems and dental problems. In these patients, there is elevated risk of gum disease, heart disease, dry mouth (xerostomia), cavities, and dental caries, enlarged / swollen tongue (macroglossia, distorted sense of taste (dysgeusia) etc.

MBBS, MD - Internal Medicine

Dear , I do understand your predicament. Your tsh and t3, t4 levels are what we call as subclinical hypothyroidism which does not require treatment in most people. Do however check your thyroid profile once every year. Head spinning problem I think it might be vertigo or syncope. For which you will have to give us a few more details.

As per your height, your weight should be 60 kgs. You are 40 kgs above your ideal body weight. Diet & exercise have 90 % failure rate. Only thing that will work for you is bariatric (weight loss) surgery.

Symptoms of blood sugar and it's prevention. In case of Low BP. Pl suggest what can I do.
People with diabetes should undergo regular physical examination, which includes consultation with a doctor; fundus examination; electrocardiogram, stress test (treadmill test); foot examination for blood circulation, sensation and vibration perception, ulcer prone areas; along with necessary laboratory investigations. 30% of people with type 2 diabetes can control diabetes by proper diet, regular exercise and yoga alone. In other cases medicines and in some cases, insulin may be required. No restriction in diet is required in diabetes. Patients with diabetes should be advised to take a healthy and balanced diet. Sweet substance and fatty foods such as ice cream, sweets, cakes, biscuits, chocolate, etc. Should be avoided. Green vegetables and salads can be taken freely. Meals should be divided 4 to 6 times a day. Eating fruits are beneficial for diabetes patients. More sweet and ripe fruits like mango, sapodilla, custard apple, banana, etc. Should not be taken, if your diabetes is not under control. Diabetic patients should make regular exercise and physical activity or yoga as a routine part of their life. Generally, exercise should be done early in the morning. One should keep sweet handy during exercise for any emergency conditions like hypoglycemia. Patient education program and counseling is a must for every person with diabetes for total management of diabetes. It helps the patient to comply with drugs and lifestyle modification more effectively. The clinical management of diabetes now has significantly more options than ever before and every year new molecule and technologies are coming in the market for better diabetes management. But, everything will fail if the lifestyle is not adhered. With proper diagnosis and appropriate treatment, one can live long, healthy and cheerful life without developing diabetes complications.

lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. In this communication there is no facility to upload the reports. So nothing can be seen. Only in private consultations one can do that. You could have written the details. Sometimes if diabetes is unconytrolled, there can be many concurrent problems. When one has well controlled diabetes FBG should be <100 mg, PP 160 to 170 mg & HbA1c% <6.8. Then most of the problems are in check. If you wish to come in a private conversation then give following details: current fasting, PP & HbA1c%, medication with dosage, dietary pattern and extent of daily exercise, then I will be able to guide. Thanks.

Signs of diabetes are excessive thirt, excessive hunger & polyurea, sudden weight gain, fatigue & weakness. To avoid diabetes daily walking for 45 minutes & night. Do yoga. Eat small meals 4to5 times a day. Calculate your bmi & don't allow your weight to increase that level.

Mr. Lybrate-user, your glucose levels show a pre diabetes situation. No treatment is needed with drugs. A modified lifestyle is the requirement. Daily 1 hour exercise, maintaining normal weight and taking a balanced diet is needed. Avoid sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries & other bakery items, sweetened aerated drinks (colas), fructose corn syrup containing products, highly processed foods & high fat milk products. Consume more of green leafy vegetables, salads. & fruits. Use whole grain flour for chapati & roti. T.

I think you had" hepatitis a" 5 months back. You should start metformin 500 mg 1-0-1 after food. This will take care of your fatty liver. Quit alcohol if you take it.
