Hi, Please suggest me something. My Thyroid test shows Total T3 = 60 Total T4= 5 TSH>=150.

MD, Fellowship in Intergrative Medicine, MBBS
Integrated Medicine Specialist, Kochi
Get to know the correct tests to do as well as the treatment protocols. That is the reason world wide hypothyroid patients are on life long medications with the the autoimmune component not addressed correctly. Do the right basic blood tests for Thyroid which is 5 of them .Not the Total T4 Total T3 and TSH testing done by your Dr. Adjust drug dosage not based on Normal TSH range but optimal TSH levels .Otherwise your labs will be fine but you will not be fine and you still have symptoms like Fatigue, Constipation,Hair loss ,Inability to loose weight etc What patients are prescribed is the synthetic. T4 Thyroxine known by brands like Thyronorm./Thyrox/ Synthroid /Eltroxin which may or may not be the correct drug you need. Because T4 -Inactive hormone - T3 is the Active hormone. T4 has to get converted to T3 only in the presence of a healthy liver and adequate levels of nutrients like, Iodine,Zinc, Iron,Magnesium ,B12 ,Selenium and many others. You are told to take lifelong medicines which is probably never needed if you treat the root cause and the triggers. Please take personal responsibility for your own health and Get educated about the disease you have and question your Dr. Always take second and third opinions so that you know you are getting the correct treatment and not getting ripped off. Send a feedback with your health issue and try to most probably reverse your hypothyroidism by diet and lifestyle and few food supplements without any medication. I am a Lifestyle, and wellness Consultant from abroad . I treat the root cause and not the symptoms Treat the triggers and taper your medicine and you may be able to even stop the medication by following a complete healthy lifestyle change as well as a thyroid friendly diet and supplements.

10 Tips To Stay Healthy With Type 1 Diabetes

10 Tips To Stay Healthy With Type 1 Diabetes

1-healthy eating having diabetes means learning how to count carbohydrates and how the foods you eat affect your blood sugar. A healthy meal plan also includes complex carbohydrates, protein, fiber (beans, whole grains, fruits and vegetables), lots of green, leafy vegetables, and limited amounts of heart-healthy fats.

2-being active physical activity can help you keep blood sugar levels normal and manage your diabetes. Being active can also improve your mood and reduce your feelings of stress and anxiety.

3-monitoring checking your blood sugar levels regularly gives you information about your diabetes management. Monitoring helps you know when your blood sugar levels are within your target range and helps you to make choices in what you eat and what you do.

4-taking medication obviously, it's important that you take your insulin, but it's vitally important that you understand how much to take in certain situations. This comes from careful monitoring of your blood sugar levels and getting to know the cause and effect between your insulin therapy and your blood sugar levels.

5-problem solving everyone encounters problems with their diabetes control. If/when you have a problem, you need to know how to troubleshoot your self-care. This can include analyzing and evaluating your situation and thinking about what was different from usual that could have affected your blood sugar. It also means coming up with solutions to try, as well as looking at what worked and what didn't. Don't get bitter, get better.

6-reducing risks you can take steps now to lower your risks of developing health problems in the future. Recommendations to reduce your risks and avoid other health problems include: not smoking, seeing you doctor regularly (to check a1c), visiting your eye doctor at least once a year, brushing and flossing daily and seeing your dentist, taking care of your feet, and listening to your body.

7-healthy coping living with diabetes and its daily demands for self-care can be stressful and may negatively impact your self-management. Not only can stress increase your blood sugar levels, but it can contribute to you making poor choices. The good news is there are many healthy ways to cope with stress.

I think this last point is vitally important, and I want to share three options for managing the stress of living with diabetes:

8-be kind to yourself. Do the best that you can do. It's important to feel good about your successes. Give yourself credit when you are successful at managing your blood sugar and don't be overly critical of yourself if you fall short of a goal.

9-seek support from a network of family and friends who you can talk to when you are upset. Seek opportunities to meet other people with diabetes, such as attending support groups or participating in online forums (such as podcasts or tweet chats), so that you won't feel isolated and alone. Talk to a psychologist or other mental health provider who provides diabetes-focused therapy if you feel depressed or overwhelmed.

10.-choose to have a positive attitude, and cultivate it every day, but also accept when you feel down about diabetes. To have occasional negative thoughts is normal; research has shown that acknowledging those thoughts may help people with diabetes keep their blood sugar levels stable. Acknowledge, but don't dwell; living with a negative mindset will limit your ability to cope. The way you think about events can influence your mood, thoughts and actions.

D) Due to lack of insulin sugar is not utilised by cell for energy. Body fat breaks down as an alternate source of energy which produces high level of ketone in blood)).

I am an old man of 69 years. I have high B.P for 20 years but am keeping it under control, using right medicines as advised by the doctor. I also have been diabetic for 6 years and keeping it well with in limits. I have a great urge for sex right from my adolescence and I used to have excellent sexual potency that very few can have. But, unfortunately due to having been divorced, I haven't had sex with any woman for nearly 11 years. Though I burn with a great desire to have sex, I am afraid, I may not be so active as I was earlier due to my fear that my penis is flaccid and that there is no proper erection, when the desire for sex rises in me (I get tempted, even looking at any young and sexy woman, at this age too). I would like to know if there are any medicines or surgeries that can make my penis strong and stiff when aroused and whether I can get back my original potency at this age. Can I also have the sustaining power of retaining the erection for long ,as I used to have earlier? The bottom line is that I am going to marry an orphan, younger to me by 35 years. I don't want to be a failure and have my new wife find ways to betray me due to lack of sexual satisfaction from me. Please advise me.

My husband is 37 years old has uric acid 8 he takes medicine and becomes low when stops will increase now the problem is, he has got itching on the ball is this due to uric acid Or can you suggest me a medicine or remedy to get rid.

Increased uric acid can some times cause joint pains, however, itching on the skin is not likely due to increased uric acid. It may be due to fungal infection. So some antifungal drug treatment is required.

You can take Nutrient-rich foods that improve your health may also benefit your thyroid gland, antioxidant-rich fruits and vegetables more plenty of water: Blueberries, tomatoes, bell peppers, and other foods rich in antioxidants can improve overall health and benefit the thyroid gland. Eating foods high in B vitamins, like whole grains, may also help. Selenium: Tiny amounts of selenium are needed for enzymes that make thyroid hormones to work properly. Eating selenium-rich foods, such as sunflower seeds or Brazil nuts, can be beneficial. Tyrosine: This amino acid is used by the thyroid gland to produce T3 and T4. Taking a supplement may help, avoid oily foods,junk foods, go for walk. Tests every 3 to 6 months.

You have written that your father has high blood sugars & he has eye problems. This means he is most likely having type 2 diabetes mellitus. But in the" conditions" section, you have written diabetes insipidus. The 2 are entirely different conditions, though they sound similar. Please clarify.
