My hubby is having diabetes can this cause any problem for me to conceive. Please advise.
Dear madam diabetes is a disease which deteriorates the body with time- hence in youth or in early stages of diabetes - human body hardly shows any long term complications. Diabetes does not lead to infertility but does lead to loss of libido and impotence. You have nothing to fear as far as conceiving with your diabetic husband is concerned.

Higher TSH - 252 (1 month back) Under going medicine TYROUP 75 mg After 1 month dose TSH - 100 Kindly suggest what is the treatment and do I have to take medicine life long.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Mr. Lybrate-user, your tsh levels both earlier and current are exceptionally high. Therefore dosage of thyroxine 75 mcg is too low. When on treatment and on good control tsh levels should be between 3 to 4 milli units /l. So your current dose is very inadequate. With this dose hypothyroidism symptoms will not be controlled. Plus you will have to follow all instructions regarding taking the dose like early morning on empty stomach and nothing to be taken after that for 2 hours. Plus avoid soy beans, soy containing products, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, mustard, peanuts, radich and coffee. Use whole grain flour for chapati and roti, (no maida, or other refined flour). Consume more of green leafy vegetables and fruits. To decide on the correct dose I need to know weight, height and t4 levels. Treatment has to be taken for life time. There is no option. If not properly treated then it can lead to serious consequences. Thanks for the question.

Hello, It is always better to have blood glucose under control with fasting closer to 100 mg, PP 160 to 180 mg, HbA1c%<7. This will help in keeping fit and doing regular exercise will help in getting a good sleep. However, if there is sleep disturbance, some times a sleep inducing drug may be used. But taking clnazepam regularly is definitely bnot advisable. That drug has potential to cause addiction apart from multiple side effects. On kidney specifically there is no serious problem. Thanks.
