Hello, I am 27 years old unmarried guy. My thyroid profile tests are as follows. 27 June 2015: Results are: T3 Serum = 2.09 nmol/L (Method: ECLIA), T4 Serum = 104.00 nmol/L (Method: ECLIA) and TSH Serum = 5.430 uIU/mL (Method: ECLIA).(After 5 months. 30 Nov 2015: Results are: T3 Serum = 1.16 ng/mL (Method: CLIA), T4 Serum = 9.30 ng/dL (Method: CLIA), TSH Serum = 9.52 uIU/mL (Method: CLIA) and ANTI TPO= 583.20 U/mL. Took Eltroxin (25mg) for 4 months regularly. 22 April 2016 (Method: ChemiluminescenceMicroparticle Immunoassay): Results are: T3 = 102.0 ng/dL (Method: CLIA), T4 = 6.29 ug/dL (Method: CLIA) and TSH - Ultrasensitive, serum by CMIA = 3.84 uIU/mL.

Mr. Lybrate-user, you seem to have hashimoto's thyroiditis, an autoimmune disease, where there are anti bodies produced against thyroid peroxidase enzyme. This results in destruction of thyroxine secreting cells. Resulting deficiency of thyroxine and hypothyroidism. This needs to be treated with thyroxine tablets and treatment has to continue for life time. There is no option, if you do stop, then there can be reappearance of all the symptoms of hypothyroidism.

Hypertension and Diabetes - How They are Related?

MBBS, DNB (General Medicine)
General Physician, Delhi
Hypertension and Diabetes - How They are Related?

Hypertension or High Blood Pressure can trigger as well as worsen complications related to diabetes. Most people suffering from diabetes tend to develop hypertension later in their lives. Diabetes tends to increase one’s blood pressure, making him/her even more vulnerable to other heart diseases and cardio-vascular disorders. Diabetes often leads to a condition known as atherosclerosis, which is the hardening of the arteries. A combination of diabetes and hypertension drastically increases the risk of suffering from a heart disease. The risks of kidney diseases and retinopathy (damage to the tiny blood vessels present in the retina) also go up, resulting in blindness. With age, chronic hypertension can also result in numerous cognitive disorders such as dementia or Alzheimer’s disease (degenerative mental disorder).

How to prevent Diabetes and Hypertension?
1. Walking for about 40 minutes each day or engaging in any type of aerobic exercise can better one’s heart health. Chalk out an exercise plan upon consulting the doctor
2. Limit drinking and abstain from smoking
3. Go for regular kidney check-ups
4. Eat food rich in fiber such as vegetables, fruits, breads or whole grain cereals
5. Examine blood pressure as well as blood sugar levels regularly at home
6. Practice relaxation techniques such as meditation or yoga to cut down on stress level; as stress is one of the major contributors to diabetes and the subsequent hypertension
7. Shed off your extra pounds as blood pressure escalates with weight

I have fatty liver. Sgot and sgpt level is high. And high cholesterol. Uric acid high level. What should i do?

MBBS, MD - Internal Medicine

I have fatty liver. Sgot and sgpt level is high. And high cholesterol. Uric acid high level. What should i do?
high 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. Avoid fast foods,oily foods,junk foods,alcohol,smoking,fatty foods, non-veg.,avoid stress, take green veg., whole grain. Take anti cholesterol medicines . take anti uric acid medicines.and medicines for liver .

Suffering from Hyperthyroidism Please give me some ways to cure it by medicine or exercise.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
hypothyroidism is a deficiency disorder, where thyroid gland is not producing adequate amount of hormone thyroxine. Hence it is needed for day to day functioning of brain and almost all important metabolic reactions in the body. Therefore, in deficiency state it has to be supplied from outside daily. So there is no cure. Treatment has to continue for life time. Diet control and exercise will help in maintaining normal weight. Any exercise is good enough, brisk walking is the best and easy option.

I am suffering from thyroid since last three month please give me some solution if this.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Hi if you are referring to hypothyroidism by saying" suffering form thyroid" then you will have to start treatment with thyroxine tablets in correct dose, which depends on body weight, t4 & tsh levels. Plus you will have to avoid soy beans, soy containing products, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, radish, peanuts, mustard and coffee. Consume more of green leafy vegetables, salads and fruits. Always use whole grain flour for chapati and roti. Avoid maida and products made with it. Plus exercise daily for 1 hour so as to avoid weight gain.

What is the treatment of thyroid?

Certified Diabetes Educator, Registered Dietitian (RD), PGDD, Bachelor of Unani Medicine and Surgery (B.U.M.S), General Physician
Dietitian/Nutritionist,
Thyroid gland affects nearly every organ in the body. Many nutritional factors play a role in optimizing thyroid function. However, both nutrient deficiencies and excesses can trigger or exacerbate symptoms. Working in collaboration with a both a physician and a registered dietitian is essential to determine nutritional status for optimal thyroid health. Improper thyroid function causes undesired weight changes, significant cardiovascular risks, and symptoms such as fatigue, mood changes, and gastrointestinal upset, which can hinder the development of healthful behaviors. I focus on setting realistic goals for healthy changes and regular exercise when counseling clients. There many potential nutrient deficiencies and interactions with medications and supplements. Hence diligent care is to be taken while designing a holistic treatment plan. I being a both a registered dietitian (rd) and doctor have been successfully helping patients with their problems through a holistic approach using customized therapeutic diet and medications. I will also suggest home remedies. Do reply back for private consultation for rx.

For a diabetic it is best advised to have a diet planned as per the sugar levels, lifestyle and history. Though you can follow some guidelines - have small frequent meals. Do not fast for more than 2-3 hours. Avoid a very heavy meal at one time. Avoid fruit juices, aerated drinks or sugar cane juice, honey, jaggery or sugar. Fruits should be had as a mid meal. Avoid junk foods. Exercise and stay active. Do not attempt to try out too many remedies as you could go into hypoglycaemia. Sleep well. Diabetes is a condition in which due to insulin insufficiency the carbs are not metabolised and hence your cells are starving. This could lead to lack of energy and hence drowsiness too. Unconsciously there are chances that you might be restricting your intake and thus nutrients leading to deficiency. It's all a matter of discipline.
