Diabetes and bp can be controlled by 1. Diet - reduce sugars and salt in your diet reduce intake of rice 2. Excercise ---exercise everyday for 1hour either in the form of walking or playing sports 3. Take meds regularly if already taking 4. Check sugar levels and bp regularly.

Hi Since you are on treatment with thyroxine 125 mcg tablets, there is no need to do any separate testing. Just take iodinated salt. Since you already have hypothyroidism, the thyroid gland is not functioning optimally. So it hardly matters. All the needs of thyroxine are being met by supplement. You should ensure that TSH level is maintained between 3 to 4 mU/L. If that is not the case then dosage of thyroxine may have to be increased. Thanks.

Hello, her tsh level which is 0.53 milli units/l is with in the recommended level (by american thyroid assocn), for conception. Before conception it is better to have tsh between 0.1 to 2 milli units and even during first trimester. Later 2nd trimeste it should be 0.3 to 3 mill uits and 3rd trimester 0.3 to 3.5 milli units/l. So my suggestion is you can go ahead and try for pregnancy. Hair fall is usually the last thing to get corrected once hypothyroidism comes in control. There is no need to reduce the dose of thyroxine 100 mcg now. May be post delivery you can look at that. Thanks for the question.

till now there is cure of any kind for diabetes. Only possibility is to transplant pancreas gland, which has not been very successful or not really done. Therefore, taking regular medicines and adapting a regulated life style are the only options.

Hi For your age, fasting blood sugar of less than 110 is a good control. Have a high protein dinner and do not have heavy or high calorie dinner. Finish your dinner 2 hours before going to bed. This will keep the fasting blood sugar normal.

Hi, its not your issue its issue of asian race, but you need to take care otherwise you may land in health crises, strict glycemic control with diet n warm exercise is must. Add warm buttermilk flavored by curry leaves/methi dana/cumin seeds/ajwain seeds reduces water this transformation will support your stomach to heart, still check your bp n eyes regularly.

Hi you should have small meals in frequent intervals rather than large meals in less interval foods like cabbage, cauliflower, cucumber, green leafy vegetables can be taken plenty sweets to be generally avoided, there are some sweet shops which sells sweet for diabetic patients, probably those can be consumed in lesser quantity confirm your sugar levels to guide further

Mr. Hypothyroidism is a thyroxine hormone deficiency disorder. Since this hormone is essential for routine functioning and development of brain, plus takes part in most vital metabolic reactions going on in the body, it has to be made available every day. So supplementing it daily is absolutely necessary. If one stops taking thyroxine then there can be serious consequences. Hence, treatment has to be continued for lifetime. There is no other option. If still you do not want to take it then it is entirely your choice. Thanks.
