First of all, get this test repeated from a different laboratory of good reputation. It may be that this test report may have varied result. Secondly, if your report is this high then your medicine dose need to be adjusted as soon as possible. In this regard, I would further advice to get tested asap and follow up on Lybrate.

One of my friend is suffering from thyroid. What should she do to cure it. Her age is 50.

Mr K D, If you are referring to hypothyroidism, then she has to be treated with thyroxine tablets. Dose will depend on TSH levels and body weight. Plus should exercise regularly for 1 hour a day so as to maintain near normal weight. After starting the treatment periodically tsh levels should be checked in 6 to 8 weeks to see if any change in dosage is needed.

Diabetes is a very diverse condition and eery diabetic differs from other diabetics in one or many ways. However, the good thing about diabetes is that it can be controlled in an effective manner. You just need proper guidance on diet, exercises and lifestyle changes. Connect with me on lybrate to know more about the carb-intake, insulin monitoring and other important things.

There are tests whichc can determine how much insulin her body is producing. If it is adequate then tabs can be given. Otherwise she will need insulin injections.

Yes, it is safe to take both tablets even during your periods. You need to take these tablets to get your levels under control. Once your thyroid and prolactin levels come under control you have good chance of conception unless you have any other problem.

Dear patient. You should take low carbohydrate diet as you are diabetic. Reduce rice or wheat product in your diet take more green vegetables and fresh fruits. But you also take 100 gms of carbs daily not more than that. Fruits like mango contain 15 gms carb & 60 calorie per 100 gms of wt. So you can eat 2-3 mangoes / week but not more than 3. Yup papaya or apple or guava or pear you can take. No dry fruits are high in calorie you an take 5-6 gms 3 days in a week. Avoid fried food, junk food that will elevate sugar level. Take small amount of foods every 3 hours intervals in a day. Do brisk walk for 40 min any time in a day. Thanks.

Hypothyroidism in India is due to iodine deficiency most of the times, autoimmunity in India is less common as compared to western countries.
Few dietary restrictions which a thyroid patient should follow
1 cabbage
2 chhole, rajma, brinjal
3 mooli, curd, achaar
Avoidance of these things will give less irritation to thyroid gland

You need to keep a tab on your sugar levels regularly. Also increase the intake of veggies, salads, whole grain cereals like jowar, bajra, oats, etc and avoid foods high in sugars such as sweets, rice, potato, etc. Take medications on time and ensure you eat small potions at regular intervals. Never skip any meal.
