Mam mujhe thyroid ki problem hai. Mai thrynorm 50 mg bhi le rahi hu maine apna blood tsh bhi test karaya hai report mai 8.72 ulu/ml.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Nehaji, With TSH level being8.72 milli units/ml, your hypothyroidism is not in control. It means the present dose of thyroxine is not enough. It has to be increased. Your BMI is 28.87 kg.M2, which shows you are over weight, Your Ideal Body Weight (IBW) should be 52 kg. If hypothyroidism is not in control then weight will keep going up, plus other symptoms will also come back. I am sure you are following instructions about taking thyroxine tablets - early in the morning on empty stomach, and nothing to be eaten there after for 2 hours. This is very essential to follow. Secondly you should avoid soy beans, soy containing products, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, radish, peanuts, mustard and coffee. Should consume more of green leafy vegetables, salads and fruits. Also use whole grain flour for chapati and roti, Plus exercise daily for at least 1 hour a day. Also should avoid deep fried foods, junk foods and pastries. Most important is to increase the dose of thyroxine and then check TSH level after 6 weeks, to see if the dose is adequate. TSH levels should be maintained between 3 to 4 milli units/ ml.

Can a Diabetic person eat Banana every day? Will it not increase the sugar levels in the body?
being a diabetologist this is the most common question people ask..answer is yes but you have to decide the portion size.extra small banana i.e 6 inch or less contain 18.5 gm of carbohydrate.medium (7-8inch) 27 gm of carbohydrate and large banana (8-9) 31 gm of carbohydrate....the portion size depends on how your blood sugar responds to eating banana or other fruits..good luck

You must be suffering from hypothyroidism and not hyperthyroidism. This disease is due to underfunctioning of your thyroid gland and is mostly irreversible, I am sorry, but in that case, you may have to continue with your treatment for life. Diabetes is also a progressive disease causing underfunctioning of your pancreas and requires similar treatment either through oral medicines and in later stages, insulin also may be required.

Mr. Lybrate-user, 8.29 mg is high concentration, upper limit being 7 mg. So it is possible that uric acid could be the cause for pain. To reduce uric acid intake of purine containing foods should be reduced. Foods like red meat, organ meat, certain fishes and sea foods like herring, haddock, trout, sardines, salmon, scallops, mushrooms, mussels etc. Avoid sweetened aerated drinks, alcohol and high milk products. Skin less chicken, eggs, other milk products (low fat) and a variety of vegetables are good. Plus if need be then drugs helping reduction of uric acid level in blood may be taken. Thanks.

I am 47 yrs old female. 9months ago my sugar level was 465-160 and wrigt was 68kg. Now my sugar level is in normal range and weight 51kg. Now I consume 1pcs metadose 850 ipr and amway daily. Now my problem is body weakness. Energyloss. I have no power to cook or home work.

MD - Pulmonary Medicine, MBBS

Hello, as you said your sugar level and weight both are under control, there is no worry about that. But worry is about side effects of metadose tablets. It can cause sugars to go down or lactic acidosis. So be sure about these side effects and check your sugar regularly. If sugar is low, then dose of metadose tablet must be reduced. Also check your abg to find out acidosis. Second thing is check your daily calorie intake. If you are having less calories, you may feel weak and dizzy. One of the above tests will find out your problem.

What medicines are best for the treatment of sugar? What are their side effect? 2.
Treatment of diabetes depends on many factors. What is the duration of diabetes, type of diabetes, your age, your job profile, other factors like kidney and liver parameters. So treatment of diabetes changes from person to person. The main aim is to control blood sugar (glucose) levels within the normal range, with minimal fluctuations to low or high levels. Type 1 diabetes is treated with: insulin exercise and a healthy balanced diet type 2 diabetes is treated with lifestyle changes with weight reduction, healthy diet, and exercise, oral medications. If oral medications become ineffective treatment with insulin is started. Gestation diabetes (in pregnant woman) limited oral medicine and insulin is needed.
