Thanks for the query. TGL 206 mg is not really needing any treatment. Secondly unless actual TSH level is mentioned it is difficult give an opinion about that. Usually treatment of hypothyroidism has to be continued for lifetime. As regards borderline diabetes, if your HbA1c% is 6.5, then there is definite diabetes, which needs to be treated with appropriate drugs, diet control and exercise. Thanks.

Get medical help. Sex counseling may solve the problem. Also we need to check you to make sure that you don' t have any serious disease causing these problems.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Usually with adequate dosage of Levothyroxine TSH is maintained around 3 to 4 mU/L, at which all the symptoms are in check. Therefore, you may increase the dosage by 12.5 mcg and check TSH after 6 weeks to see if desired level is achieved. Thanks.

Mr. Lybrate-user, a person with diabetes should take a restricted diet that gives exact calories based on his blood sugar levels, weight and extent of daily exercise. Few guidelines to be followed are: avoid sweets, sweetened aerated drinks, deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries, highly processed foods, high fat containing milk products and fructose corn syrup containing products. He should always use whole grain products and flour for chapati and roti. Should consume good deal of green leafy vegetables, salads and permitted fruits (100 g a day).

Diabetic Nephropathy - Ways That Can Help You Manage It!

Diabetic Nephropathy - Ways That Can Help You Manage It!

Diabetic nephropathy (Diabetic Kidney Disease) is defined as the progressive damage to the kidneys caused by diabetes. It is characterised by the scarring of the glomeruli in the kidneys due to prolonged diabetes mellitus.

What Causes Diabetic Nephropathy?

Diabetes is a condition characterized by high concentration of blood sugar. Although the cause of Diabetes Nephropathy is not yet well defined, it is likely that the high sugar levels in the blood damage the blood vessels present in the kidneys that help to filter waste products, thus resulting in decreased kidney function and ultimately, kidney failure.

Not everyone with diabetes suffers from diabetic nephropathy. Although, factors that can increase your chances of getting diabetic neuropathy are-

  1. Smoking

  2. Poor control of blood glucose

  3. High blood pressure

  4. History of kidney diseases

What are the symptoms of diabetic nephropathy?

In the early stages, there may be no symptoms at all, but as the disease progresses, you may notice swelling in the extremities like your feet. Thus it is recommended to get your blood albumin levels tested on a regular basis. If it is diagnosed in early stages, the damage can be reversed. Other symptoms that can indicate damage to the kidneys are-

  1. Severe malaise

  2. Headaches

  3. Nausea

  4. Lack of appetite

  5. Frequent voiding

  6. Itchiness of skin

  7. General feeling of illness

Diagnostic tests that can confirm diabetic nephropathy are-

Routine urine test (urinalysis) - Kidney diseases are detected by the presence of a protein in the urine called albumin and this condition is called albuminuria. Other parameters that must be regularly monitored are-

  1. Blood pressure

  2. Cholesterol levels in your blood

How can you treat/ manage diabetic nephropathy?

If this type of nephropathy is diagnosed in the early stages, the damage to the kidneys can be reversible. The key to managing diabetic nephropathy are-

  1. Diet: Reduce the dietary intake of salt, phosphorous and potassium in the advanced stages.

  2. Glycemic Control: Monitor your blood glucose levels regularly

  3. Management of Hypertension: It is important to manage your blood pressure as it can have a direct effect on the coronary blood vessels which in turn pump blood to the various blood vessels of the body

  4. Renal Replacement Therapy: In chronically ill patients, renal replacement therapy is the best option. This can include haemodialysis (a procedure to flush out toxins from the blood, such as urea), peritoneal dialysis or ultimately renal transplantation. Consult an Expert & get answers to your questions!

However, few things which should be followed are- avoid sweets, direct sugar, deep fried foods, fruits like banana, mango, chikkoos, grapes, exercise for more than 1 h every day. Eat more green salads and can consume fruits like apple, orange, water melon, pear and guava (peru)

Fasting any thing above 120 is high and requires diet modification. Simultaneously think of doing fee more blood test and urine test.

There are no specific food substances for curing the thyroid problem. Yet it is important to be physically active (exercise and yoga) and eat only healthy food so that you remain healthy and fit. In the long run, this healthy lifestyle will surely help you to overcome the thyroid problem. So please continue the medicine as usual. The dosage of the medicine can be reduced slowly as you improve your health by exercise and good diet. If needed you can also add Homeopathy which is safe and can be given with other regular medicines. You can contact me later for further details about Homeopathic treatment if the problem does not improve with diet and exercise.
