Mr Kishan, Diabetes and hypothyroidism should be always in control with proper drugs. If hypothyroidism is not in check it can cause constipation. To give any kind of advise i need to know fasting and PP sugar levels, HbA1c%, TSH levels and drugs being taken. So please give those details and come in a private conversation, where I can give specific suggestions. As regards low BP please mention the BP readings.

What is the signs of thyroid?

CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology, MBBS
Endocrinologist,
Do you mean to say hypothyroidism? because thyroid is the endocrine gland producing thyroxine hormone. If it does not produce enough hormone hypothyroidism is caused. If excess is produced hyperthyroidism is caused. So which one are you referring?

You need not to take medicines now. Follow a diabetic diet, get a diet chart online. And loose some weight, do regular exercise for 30 minutes daily. It will be sufficient for you to improve your blood sugar levels.

If you have confirmed diabetes, then treatment with antidiabetic medicine is a must, which I am sure must be on. Please tell me what are current fasting and pp sugar levels and hba1c%, because unless diabetes (blood sugar levels) is under excellent control it is difficult to avoid long term problems of various complications. As regards" eating everything" for a diabetic person there will always be restrictions in food intake like avoiding sweets, direct sugar, deep fried foods and certain fruits like mango, chikoo, banana & grapes. Even your food intake has to in relation to body's requirement based on ideal body weight. (ideal body weight = height in cms - 100 x 0.9 = kgs). If you are a sedentary type of person then calories allowed would be 25 kcal /kg / day. So far a diabetic person restricted food intake is the only choice.

Mr. Lybrate-user, diabetes can only be treated by either oral anti-diabetic drugs or insulin injections or both. Plus diet restriction and regular exercise. Unfortunately there are no other drugs in any branch of medicine which control blood sugar. So my suggestion is to continue present treatment. I have seen patients in my practice who stopped modern medicine and started other therapies and have come back with exceptionally high blood sugar. Now the choice is yours.

My wife is 57 years. She has thyroid problem and regularly taking tablets. She is unable to tolerate even silly problems. Often she is loosing her patience, getting angry & scolding family members. Doing all works very slowly thus going to bed late early morning by 2 or 3 am. My question is whether due to thyroid these are all happen or is she mentally retarded? please answer.

Sir, you please cross check your endocrinologist about normalcy of thyroid medications. Once he gives a clear signal about his concern, then we can think this is endocrine related psychiatric disorder, which are very much common in such cases and managed easily.

Mr. Lybrate-user, your testosterone value is in normal range. There is no reason to take that hormone. Lack libido can be seen in hypothyroidism. It is important to have tsh values around 3 to 4 milli units/l, then only it is considered under good control and most of the symptoms improve. Unnecessarily using testosterone is an invitation for its side effects, which include: acne, oily skin, mild fluid retention, stimulation of prostate tissue, increased urination, decreased stream, increased risk of developing prostate cancer, breast enlargement and increased blood clots. So my suggestion is check tsh and try bring it to above mentioned range. Thanks for the question.
