My wife, 50 yrs having thyroid for the past 15 yrs. This blood test taken on 05-11-2015. The results are as follows. Free t3 = 3.52 pg/ml, free t4 = 2.14 ng/dl, tsh 3rd generation (hs tsh) = less than 0.005 miu/ml. Based on these results doctors advise her to reduce tab. Eltroxin to 150 microgram. But while taking for 10 days or so, the face and chest started swelling and even unable to wear the blouse. But on increasing to 200 microgram, the swelling disappeared. But doctors are threatening that organs will fail, if she takes more eltroxin than required. Please help to reduce the swelling and medicine intake. Intake of less than 200 microgram, even 175 microgram gives her the above problem.what is needed to be done?

Hello Dr. My mother is 42 years old and she has this really high Hypothyroid got her report done for Anti-TPO > 1000....
Hello, If Anti TPO antibodies titre is high, it means she has Hashimoto's Thyroiditis (HT), which leads to hypothyroidism. It has to be treated with thyroxine tablets and for lifetime. Drinking and smoking have no direct bad effect on thyroid gland, but will definitely affect her general health. Alcohol will damage liver and smoking the lungs. If she is not on any treatment then it is necessary to start. Thanks.

Eye Problems Caused by Diabetes

FRCS, MD - Ophthalmology , MBBS
Ophthalmologist, Delhi
Eye Problems Caused by Diabetes

If you have got diabetes, then it is quite natural that you will soon face acute eye troubles. This is the reason diabetic patients are always suggested to keep their blood sugar levels controlled so that eye troubles can be easily avoided. Thorough medical check-up is required in order to detect conditions of the eyes. Some of the commonest eye troubles occurring due to diabetes are cataract, glaucoma, blurry vision, diabetic retinopathy and others. 

List of eye diseases caused by diabetes:

  1. Diabetic Retinopathy: When the retina's smallest blood vessels get severely damaged due to increased blood sugar, then this kind of eye condition occurs. Early detection of this eye condition can save your eyes, but if it is too late, then nothing can be done, and it might even lead to blindness.
  2. Cataract: Fogging or clouding condition can bring this kind of condition and this can only be corrected by wearing proper corrective lenses.  However, if you fail to control diabetes, then in spite of wearing glasses, your eye condition might get deteriorated day-by-day. Glared or blurred vision is the most common symptom in this regard. 
  3. Glaucoma: When the eye fluid is not drained properly, then this kind of eye trouble occurs. In fact, eye pressure increases to a great extent as a result of which delicate eye nerves can get severely damaged. The blood vessels of the eyes can get clogged causing greater interruption in vision. Medicines can make aqueous humor to get drained in a proper manner, and thus you should go for a proper eye check-up so that you can acquire the requisite medicines. Some popular symptoms of glaucoma are headaches, eye aches, blurred vision, watery eyes, vision loss and others. 
  4. Diabetic macular edema:  This eye disease mainly occurs in the advanced stage of diabetic retinopathy. Macula is nothing, but the most delicate part of retina and when it gets swollen, then you might face this eye trouble. Only medications can help you to get rid of the same and thus immediate medical help is needed. 
  5. Blurry vision: Though this is quite a small and temporary eye issue for diabetic patients, but this condition might turn into a serious one if you neglect to correct the same in the very beginning. You might even face blindness due to negligence of this trouble. Also, fluctuating sugar-levels should be stabilized so that this kind of trouble can be easily tackled.

lybrate-user, Taking thyroxine tablets in specific dose as prescribed is the only treatment for hypothyroidism. This is a hormone deficiency condition, hence, treatment is lifelong. There is no other option. Thanks.

never stopped medicines of thyroid.pl. take tab. thyroxine. pl. tell your reports. after reports we advice dose of thyroxine. 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 alcohl if you take.

Mr. Lybrate-user, thyroid is small gland present in all of us, located on the cricoid cartilage in the front of throat, a butterfly shaped gland. This secretes hormone thyroxine, necessary for development and functioning of brain, and for all vital metabolic activities. Deficiency causes hypothyroidism, leading to weight gain, slow heart rate, intolerance to cold, early fatigue, tiredness, difficulty in speech, inability to concentrate, menstrual irregularities in women, infertility, dry skin. Dry hair, hair fall and anxiety and depression. Excess activity of the gland causes hyperthyroidism, leading to weight loss, agitation, rapid heart rate, palpitation, protrusion of eyes, excess sweating, intolerance to heat etc. Both these conditions can only be controlled by proper treatment. There is no cure.

Mr. lybrate-user, BP reading of 110/70 mm Hg, is in fact absolutely fine. That is unlikely to cause any problem. If a person's BP comes below 90 mm Hg Systolic and below 60 mm Hg diastolic it is referred as low BP. When you feel listless have you checked blood glucose level any time? It is a possibility that if blood glucose llevel goes down to 70 mg or lower a person with diabetes feels uneasy, listless, there may be blurring of vision, sweating, numbness and loss of strength. Even it can cause dizziness. If glucose goes below 50 mg and lower there may be unconsciousness. So please check glucose level when you have such a feeling. If that is the case, if it is happening repeatedly then we will have to look at your treatment and diet. Thanks.

You are taking right treatment, keep sugar levels in normal range, exercise moderately , simple walks are best but due to outside high pollution levels , some people do exercise on cycle at home because pollution is as bad as smoking 10 cigarettes/day.

Mr. Lybrate-user, if you have confirmed diabetes then the treatment has to continue for life time. Diabetes can only be controlled, there is no cure. Along with drugs, exercise and diet restriction to control weight is also equally important. Check your hba1c%, it should be maintained around <6.8. Thanks for your question.

Mr. Lybrate-user, according over all information in relation to alcohol, it is not recommended at all for a diabetes patient. So whatever may be type of alcohol (beer, scotch), hence quantity is not the case.
