Mr. lybrate-user, Presence of pus cells signifies urinary tract infection. That needs to be treated with a course of appropriate antibiotic. Potassium is moderately high, needs to be reduced. We have to look at total treatment being taken and the diet. Plus it is important to control blood glucose level effectively, with fasting around 100 mg, PP 150 to 160 mg & HbA1c% <6.8. Thanks.

Diabetes is a progressive disease where there is early aging of certain organs like kidney brain heart eyes etc as they affected by the increased sugar levels early, and by preferentially. Even if the sugars are controlled well the disease in kidney can't be reversed though progress of disease can be delayed. Infections in kidney or for that matter the urinary tract has to be dealt with immediately. Follow up of creatinine and urea every month is ok. Kidney protective drugs should be used. BP medications has to be reviewed.

Hi The number of calories you burn from jumping rope depends on different factors like your weight, jumping intensity and the pace at which you jump. Generally skipping for 15 min help you lose approximately 188 calories. If its 70 jumps per minute then your losing 430 calories for every 1000 jumps and so with 2300 jumps your probably losing about 1000 calories approximately.

Thyroid Surgery - Why Should You Go For It?

MS - General Surgery, MBBS

Thyroid Surgery - Why Should You Go For It?

Thyroid is a small butterfly shaped gland, which is present at the lower frontal region of the neck, right beneath the voice box. It produces hormones which regulate metabolism (the breakdown of food by the body to convert it into energy). It even plays a pivotal role in boosting organ functions as well as in helping the body to sustain heat. However, too much of hormone production by the thyroid gland might yield structural problems, for instance, growth of nodules (abnormal tissue growth) or cysts (non-cancerous sac-like structures containing fluid) and swelling. Hence, a thyroid surgery is a must once these problems occur. The surgery, administered with general anesthesia, eliminates the thyroid gland either wholly or partially.

Why do you need surgery?

  1. The presence of tumors or nodules on one’s thyroid gland is one of the reasons why one should go for the surgery. Although most of the nodules are benign, few can be pre-cancerous or cancerous too. Also, those benign nodules can spell trouble, if they expand in size, thus obstructing the throat. They can be problematic as well if they cause the thyroid gland to overproduce hormones, giving rise to a condition known as hyperthyroidism.
  2. Hyperthyroidism can be corrected through surgery. It is often an outcome of Grave’s disease, an autoimmune disorder wherein the body misidentifies the thyroid gland as a foreign body, thereby creating antibodies to combat it. The thyroid gland gets inflamed in the process, resulting in the overproduction of hormones.
  3. Another reason is the enlargement or swelling up of the thyroid gland, termed as goiter. Similar to large nodules, goiter too can clog the throat, thus interfering with one’s breathing, speaking and eating.

Types of Surgery

  1. Lobectomy: This procedure calls for partial removal of the lobes when a nodule or an inflammation affects just half of the thyroid gland.
  2. Subtotal Thyroidectomy: Here, a small proportion of the thyroid tissue is left behind even after the elimination of the thyroid gland.
  3. Total Thyroidectomy: Through this procedure, the entire thyroid gland is taken out along with the thyroid tissue. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an endocrinologist.

It is important to evaluate you clinically for the reason for such a pain. You have not mentioned the medicines you are taking. It could be neuropathy or side effect of metformin. I suggest to consult a good diabetologist for correct advise.
