I have given my blood to pharmacy for a self aware thyroid test. Now reports came and in that Serum T3 and Serum T4 is between range but Serum TSH is 28.16 Micro IU/ML, which has to be between 0.3 to 5, Kindly suggest me whether m I suffering from Thyroid? If yes then its in starting stage, medium stage or critical stage. Kindly suggest me what food and medicines to be taken to cure it as per my report. Already 8 months passed away of my normal delivery.

lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. With TSh value of 28.16 mU/L, there is a fairly severe hypothyroidism. This needs to be controlled, urgently with the appropriate dose of levothyrooxine daily. The treatment has to be for the lifetime. When on treatment, TSH should be maintained between 3 to 4 mU/L. Dosage has to be decided on the basis of weight, height and TSH & T4 levels. Plus you will have to avoid soy beans, soy containing products. Consume more of green leafy vegetables, salads and fruits. Always use whole grain flour for chapati and roti. If treatment is not initiated then a considerable problems will be faced, including irregular menstrual cycles, weight gain, cold intolerance, hair fall, muscle and joint pains, anxiety and swelling of face and lower limbs. Later after marriage, getting pregnant also becomes difficult. Thanks.

I am Type II patient for last 20+ years. I used to have actrapid which I have stopped and taking Diamicron 60 XR One Tab a day before lunch. I take Janumet 50/1000 twice a day. And Lantus 24 units before going to bed. The sugar checking is done every day (fasting as well as PP). The readings for the last one year ranges between 80 & 108 fasting. And the PP is between 138 to 160. I have been following a diet, a walk for 1 Kilometer & Yoga. My question is - How to completely stop the medicines (tablets + Lantus). I am 64 years old. Height 6'1" and weight 96 Kgs.

In ayurveda its called kashtsaadhya. You have to continue taking medicine to manage levels of sugar. The only difference between ayurvedic herbs and allopathic is that with former you will not get any side effects like neuropathy, retinopathy etc and if acquired already, it will start receding in 6-8 weeks. But you can't stop allopathy atonce. May gradually increase herbals and reduce allopathic. Initially parallels will have to be taken. Constant monitoring will educate you at what level balance of ayurveda or allopathy is to be kept. You will be the best judge. Parallel treatment with ayurveda will not harm you. No interaction ever. May be if it suits you, you may continue only herbals rest of your life with betterment. But it is easier said than done. Do patiently and adopt pranayam too.

Hi  First: medicines are mandatory.  Otherwise ypu might have weight gain, muscle ache, sleep and anxiety issues as well as gynaecological and cardiac issues later. You need to get an USG neck done  and an FNAC USG guided of thyroid gland. FT3/FT4/TSH  If ypu have already done these tests Share on Lybrate I can help you better. Any history of alcohol  intake /fatty food /sugary food How much exercise do you get done every day? Ideally you should be doing a good mix of cardio, weights and crossfit  exercises to keep you healthy Together  with a balanced diet with optimum  healthy fat protein and carbs.  Avoid  deep fried fatty food and fast food. No soft drinks /sugary drinks. I am outlining  food you should avoid or restrict in Hypothyroidism. It's important  you maintain  your body weight exercise regularly. Weight gain increases thyroid hormone requirements.  Avoid cruciferous   group of veggies  like cabbage and broccoli. Avoid soya bean in all forms. No soya, nugget, chunk, tofu or milk. Limit their intake: Brussels sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower, kale, turnips, and bok choy. Cooking the vegetables can reduce the effect that cruciferous vegetables have on the thyroid gland. Limiting your intake to 5 ounces a day appears to have no adverse effect on thyroid function. Decrease gluten  intake from processed  food. Always try whole grain varieties of cereals which is rich in fibres and help improve  bowels (Take your thyroid replacement  medicine several hours before or several hours after food rich in fibres. Otherwise problem  with absorption  of hormone. 20 to 35 gram of fibres daily from all sources. Avoid excessive fatty (deep fried) and sugary food as hypothyroidism  causes your metabolism  to slow down &weight gain. Avoid highly salted food, chips, pickles, sauces as they Contain  large amount of sodium. Hypothyroidism  puts you at risk of high BP and excess sodium in salt aggravates Coffee  in excess. And coffee with thyroid hormone  replacement  can prevent absorption.  Alcohol. It is toxic to thyroid gland and prevents  hormone production and absorption. The problems of hypothyroidism  gets better with medicines, diet and exercise.  You will start  Better as the levels of your hormone normalises.  Initially  you need to do the TSH test every 6 weeks till normal TSH then every 3 months Diet /EXERCISE/Medicines/Sleep/meditation: 5 pillars of health needed to live the healthiest Chronic ITP and fibroid will have to be answered by other specialists. Hope this helps Let me know.  Take care

Dear lybrate-user, diabetes is a chronic disease where your body lack a healthy mechanism to maintain your blood sugar under controlled range. You need medication throughout to keep your glycemic target under control to avoid any future complication. Good luck. Remember your HbA1c was 14 which warrants a good control.

Lybrate-user kailashji, from the details mentioned it appears there is a sudden increase in blood sugar after food. Fasting as in the evening low sugar can be countered by proper selection of type of insulin sued along with dosage. Plus there has to be a closer look at the dietary intake and exercise that you are doing daily. Plus now there a continuous glucose monitoring system available which when applied to your arm remains with you for 14 days, checks blood glucose level every 15 minutes (96 times a day), for 14 days, gives various graphs showing highs and lows of blood sugar, which should help your doctor to give clear guidance in terms of insulin dosage and food intake. This is called libre pro glucose monitoring system by abbott. Ask your physician or diabetologist to use and help. With regards.

Mr. Lybrate-user, there are no medicines to control the craving for sweets. Sometimes, if patients use artificial sweeteners, then those chemicals increase the craving for sweets. Controlling craving is entirely in your hands. If you do not control then blood sugar is bound to very high. I am sure you are aware what serious complications result from uncontrolled diabetes, things like retinopathy leading to blindness, damage to kidney leading to end stage renal failure, severe neuropathy, non- healing ulcers on foot leading to gangrene and amputation, silent heart attacks etc. So choice is yours, either control the cravings or face/invite complications. Thanks for the question.

Tsh 21 is a serious hypothyroidism and need treatment with Eltroxin. Tsh low low means the thyroid gland is not functioning less and the brain is trying to make it work harder by sending TSH as boosting agent
