Mr. Lybrate-user, from the thyroid test results, it is clear she does not have any problem with that gland. Alopecia areata is a condition which a dermatologist should be able to help out. Also look at her cbc (total blood cell count), to see if she has anemia. You may give vitamin d 3 supplement. Also give zinc supplement. Some times zinc deficiency also leads to hair loss. Thanks.

I have thyroid since 2 months I consult my family doctor in Hyderabad but no result how to recover this problem.

BHMS

Hi. Do you have hypothyroidism or hyperthyroidism? If you are suffering from chronic and high grade thyroid dysfunction or autoimmune thyroid disease, in all these cases whether you take allopathic or homoeopathic or any other mode of treatment, it would maintain your thyroid function. Do practice yoga along with these medicines. Yoga-Poses: Kalapbhati: This is a very effective form of pranayama. Sit down on the floor in a comfortable cross-legged position. Take a deep breath & then exhale quickly, while making a sound. Always remember while doing Kapalbhati – you have to forcefully and quickly exhale, but slowly and deeply inhale. Continue doing this for 10 times & then release. Ujjayi Pranayam: Sit down on the floor in a cross-legged straight position. Inhale slowly and deeply by both the nostrils. Try to make a hissing sound while you are sucking in the air. After that, stretch your inhale time for a while & then exhale as much as you can without giving any kind of pressure to your other body parts. This type of pranayama is very effective for those suffering from bronchitis, asthma & thyroid. Yoga Nidra (Corpse Pose) also works well in both hypo and hyperthyroidism in reducing stress and calming down. Foods to be avoided in Hypothyroidism: hypothyroidism causes skin to become dry. Once it is controlled with tsh levels becoming normal, most symptoms will disappear. Carrots and beet root are fine, can be eaten. Only cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, radish, mustard, peanuts, soy beans and soy containing products and coffee need to be avoided.

What is the cure for follicular carcinoma of thyroid after total thyroidectomy of a female of 57 years. What is the %age of prognosis and what are the precautions taken. What are the effects of no intake of Thyroxine until radioactive iodine is administered and is the iodine therapy the only remedy for it. Any suggestions in this regard are solicited. Thanks

As thyroid been removed thyroxine will continue life long. Radi iodine will continue for some time and then stop depending upon what your oncologist has prescribed. Radio iodine is to kill any residual thyroid cellsin body to decrease chances of reappearance of cancer and so os must.

Hello With all its moisturizing action, aloe vera is one of the most effective skin soothing agents. When you rub the gel over an itchy spot, it helps reduce the skin irritation in that area and provides quick relief from itching. Just break a leaf from the plant, cut it lengthwise using a knife and using a spoon, scoop out the jelly-like substance inside. Apply a little of this gel to the itchy area and leave it on for a few minutes.

I am 76 years old person and pre diabetic diagnosed in December 2015 and presently I wanted to know that dry dates, chuhara, can be eaten by me or not. I got three replies and all are different. One doctor said it can be eaten, second said it is not advisable and third says that it can be eaten once or twice in a week but none has mentioned the quantity. The reply has not been given by any diabetes specialist. Which answer I should take as correct. Please advise. Regards,

Dear lybrate-user, I can understand your confusion. Dates are sweet and high calorie food. In diabetes everything can be eaten but in moderation, calories count per day has to be maintained. The best person to answer your question is a diet specialist. But generally moderation is the key regards.

I am 58 years old and a diabetic and having hypothyroidism. I am taking metformin and thyroxine. I heard thyroxine reduces the absorption of metformin. Please advise whether I can continue the treatment ?

Critical Care Training, MD - Internal Medicine, MBBS

If your thyroid and sugar both under control, then don't think too much. Thyroxine is to be taken on empty stomach and metformin to be taken with food and both doesn' t have any interaction with each other.

Mr. Lybrate-user, since you have hypertension and diabetes, it is essential that both these conditions are well in control. Plus you should do regular exercise so as to keep both upper and lower back muscles well toned and relaxed. There are specific exercises for upper and lower back muscles, which should help in overcoming the stiffness in these muscles. Your weight is shown as 91 kgs, but height is not mentioned. It appears you are having excess weight, which can be a mean reason for stiffness in the back.

Mr Rahul, If blood sugar level is not under control then fungal infections particularly of prepuce can occur fairly frequently. So please see that your blood sugar levels are near normal (fasting about 100 mg and PP about 150 to 160 mg). Then also need to take anti fungal treatment.
