Yes, definitely. Type 2 diabetes can be inherited. But you can do a lot to prevent, or at least delay getting it. Lose weight (if you are overweight/ obese), exercise regularly & eat healthy.

lybrate-user, If you have hypothyroidism, then treatment with thyroxine needs to be started. With treatment it is essential to bring TSH level between 3 to 4 mU/L, then only all the symptoms will be in check. Thanks.

Mr Sanjeet, If you have been diagnosed to have diabetes mellitus (T2), then only way to remain fit and healthy is to take prescribed medication regularly, without missing the dose, take a planned restricted diet, that gives exact calories based on your ideal body weight, sugar levels and extent of physical exercise. Avoid sweets, direct sugar and jaggery, deep fried foods, junk foods and pastries. Consume more of green leafy vegetables and salads, permitted fruits (100 g a day). Refrain from alcohol and smoking. This changed life style has to be adapted for your life. The disease does not go away, you have to learn to live with it.

I am suffering from thyroid age 40 years what to do please help me. I am in hyderabad.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Mr kamalesh, I think you are referring to hypothyroidism, where there is deficiency of thyroid function, leading to lack of thyroxine hormone. Thyroxine is required for day to day functions almost every single cell in the body, for brain development, growth of long bones along with growth hormone, cell growth and differentiation etc. Therefore, this hormone has to be supplied from outside through thyroxine tablets, dosage will depend upon tsh levels and patient's weight. Please undersatand there is no other treatment than this. Plus it has to be continued for life time. If necessary consult a physician or an endocrinologist.

Lybrate-user, please clarify whether you want to know how to control weight gain in pregnancy or want to reduce weight even otherwise. Because during pregnancy a gain of 12 to 14 kg weight is natural. Because of uterine size increase, placenta, amniotic fluid, fetus, mothers tissues particularly breast and in general. So weight gain is inevitable and necessary. If you have hypothyroidism and it is not in complete check, then also weight increases. When fully under control tsh should be between 3 to 4 milli units/l. Then only all symptoms are under control. Further, in pregnancy tsh levels should be still lower. Recommended levels are 1st trimester 0.1 to 2 milli units, 2nd trimester 0.3 to 3 milli units & 3rd 0.3 to 3.5 milli units/l. If levels are higher than these then that can lead to improper development of fetus, miscarriages and over all bad out come of pregnancy. If you have any doubts please come back. Thanks.

What causes Hashimoto's thyroiditis, and what is the best method of treatment? Can iodine help this condition?

PDDM, MHA, MBBS
General Physician, Nashik
Hashimoto's thyroiditis is an autoimmune disease, a disorder in which the immune system turns against the body's own tissues. In people with hashimoto's, the immune system attacks the thyroid. This can lead to hypothyroidism, a condition in which the thyroid does not make enough hormones for the body's needs. There is no cure for hashimoto's, but replacing hormones with medication can regulate hormone levels and restore your normal metabolism. Yes, iodine may help.

Infertility: Causes & Treatment

MS, MBBS
Gynaecologist, Noida
Infertility: Causes & Treatment

Infertility is a condition where a couple, trying to conceive in a natural way is not able to do so even after one year of trying. It is also a matter of worry for patients who are over the age of 35 years and those who are not able to conceive naturally even after 12 months of trying constantly.

Causes: There are many causes of infertility. It may be down to a condition present in one or both partners. Ovulation and fertilisation are the main elements of the conception process and any condition in the female or male can upset either function, which can make it difficult to conceive.

While abnormal sperm production and transport may be a common condition that leads to infertility in males, other factors like side effects of cancer treatments and too much exposure to toxins and chemicals can also play an important role in this regard. For females, the causes of infertility may range from ovulation disorders, uterine and fibroid tumours, uterine and cervical anomalies, damage to or blockage of the fallopian tubes, endometriosis, primary ovarian insufficiency and pelvic adhesions.

Treatment: Female patients can turn to medication that will stimulate ovulation, intrauterine insemination, and surgical processes to correct a uterine septum and remove endometrial polyps, or even a hysteroscopy surgery. Male patients can go through a treatment for any existing infections, hormonal injections and medication, surgical options like vasectomy reversal and art or assistive reproductive technology.

If these methods fail, the patient or the couple can always turn to methods like in vitro fertilisation. For other mild reasons, lifestyle changes along with a stress free environment can help in increasing the chances of conception.
