Fried foods or food items that are high in cholesterol and saturated fats should be avoided as these foods can cause an increase in DHT levels (a by-product that causes hair loss).

I am 46 year old female. Today I went for a thyroid test. In that t4 is100.20 and tsh is 9.59. Whom should I approach? How to control these levels.

High tsh levels as in your case indicate hypothyroidism. It is a condition where the thyroid gland is being pushed and stimulated by the pituitary gland in the brain to secrete more t3 and t4 levels. In a scenario where only tsh is raised and t3 and t4 levels are normal, it means the disorder has only started and not peaked. But if you ask why is the brain pushing the gland to more, you will realise that the gland must be functioning less and hence the push required. Choices of treatment are either conventional allopathy which involves lifelong replacement of t3/t4 hormones synthetically, which will normalise the blood levels and hence any further stimulated will not be required and tsh will again go back to normal. But since we are not touching the glands own function in any ways, you can't stop the replacement therapy. The other choice is homeopathy where medicines are aimed to correct and revive optimal functioning of thyroid gland and bring back normal levels of t3/t4 hormone production. Once this is achieved, tsh levels will return back to normal and as also the symptoms. Since we would have correct the problem from the base, lifelong supplementation won't be required. Give it a thought!

Dear Lybrate User, you may have come across a number of gimmicking advertisement of medicines which claim to decrease body weight in a very short time. Don’t fall prey for such advertisement because the excess weight would not be shredded until each & every underlying cause of being overweight is diagnosed & treated. Normally 1 kg of fat occupies thrice the volume than that of 1 kg of muscle. That’s why accumulation of fat makes a person so bulky whereas body-builders have a shredded physique although most of the body-builders are overweight according to the BMI index. So it is evident that to lose the excess weight you have to get rid of the excess fat in your body. Now the basic role behind the process of accumulation of fat in human body is played by Metabolism. Metabolism is the set of life-sustaining chemical transformations within the cells of living organisms. The three main purposes of metabolism are the conversion of food/fuel to energy to run cellular processes, the conversion of food/fuel to building blocks for proteins, lipids, nucleic acids, and some carbohydrates, and the elimination of nitrogenous wastes. In order to lose the excess fat you need to increase your rate of metabolism. First of all you need to rule out the possibility of the presence of any hormonal disturbance that may be affecting your sister's metabolism. Just conduct a total Thyroid profile test of all her blood. If the reports are within normal limits then she should proceed further to increase your metabolism. If you find any abnormalities in the report you should immediately consult a doctor.

Hi Managing diabetes with insulin needs some education regarding how to adjust the insulin dose, about the type of insulin your taking, how to manage when the blood sugars are low or high and diet as well. You need a consultation to discuss the same. As of now it looks like her insulin dose is high. Please do not stop the insulin as the blood sugars are settling and if stopped can shoot up the blood sugars. The dose has to be adjusted gradually and may be stopped if she has repeated low blood sugars.

Hi lybrate-user, thank you for your qjery. Generally birth weight doubles by 6 months of age and trebles by 1 year of age. For example, if a baby born with 3 kg weight, baby will be 6 kgs at 6 months and 9 kgs by 1 year of age. Give her breast feeds and continue to give complimentary feeds 3 to 4 times in a day. Make feeds calorie rich by adding a few drops of ghee or edible oil. Hope I have answered your concerns. Regards, Dr. E venkata ramana.

Mr Pritam, At 27 years you have very severe hypertension and it has to be controlled rapidly. The dose of Amlodepine 5 mg, is very low and there may be a need for additional drugs. About fasting blood sugar level of 88 mg, it is absolutely normal. There is no need to worry about that. But you BP needs to be better controlled. It will be better if you come in a private conversation where I can give specific suggestions and even prescription. In this communication we are supposed to give only general guide lines like to control BP you have to reduce daily salt intake to 2.3 g, avoid smoking and alcohol. Practice yogasanas etc.

Mr., if he has diabetes (high blood sugar) and high bp, then proper treatment with appropriate drugs should be taken. In addition he should take a restricted diet, that gives exact calories based on his ideal body weight (70 kgs), extent of daily exercise and blood sugar levels. He should exercise for at least 1 hour, brisk walking is a good option. That helps better sugar control and also in reducing bp. He should consume less salt in the diet and avoid papad, pickles and extra salt while taking food. To control sugar level he should avoid sweets completely, avoid deep fried foods, pastries, bakery items, farsan, high fat milk products and sweetened aerated drinks (colas). Should consume more of green leafy vegetables and salads and permitted fruits about 100 g a day. If you are looking for specific drugs to be taken then please come in a private conversation with details like fasting, pp sugar levels, hba1c%, lipid profile, bp readings, amount of walking done daily and dietary pattern. Looking at those details I will be able to give specific guidance, thanks for the question.

With so much of TSH variation, I suspect Autoimmune thyroiditis. Thyroid issues along with other metabolic issues, if not properly managed can lead to subfertility/infertility/miscarriage/pregnancy induced diabetes and can even affect the development of the foetus. Treatment for you would not only involve optimization of thyroids but also other related hormones. I follow a very elaborate protocol for this and work closely with the local infertility specialist/center to optimize outcome.

I am 58 years old, male with Schizophrenia since 10 years. At present I am put on Amisulpride 200 mg 0-0-1 and Sizopin 100 mg 0-0-1.

If you have been stabilized with amisulpiride and sizopin , its better to continue the same treatment. if you have any side effects or if there is no improvement, then only you think of changing the medication. As such paliperidone has no serious side effects but can cause stiffness of muscles and shaking in some pts.
