I am hypothyroidism for last 3 yrs. Last year my TSH was 7.2. After being put on 112.5 mg Thyronorm I had symptoms of loss of appetite, libido. I also got my testosterone test done Values of testosterone are: total 260, free 5 My question are these values and can be reason for decrease in libido. If yes, then is there any testosterone treatment. I have testosterone treatment leads to reduction in sperm count and leads to prostate cancer Pls advise.

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.

I am a Diabetic patient, so please suggest me how will I get cure. Please please please.
Hye, thanks for the query. For a diabetic it is best advised to have a diet planned as per the sugar levels, lifestyle and history. Though you can follow some guidelines - you need to start medication initially to bring down sugar levels. The sugar levels will fluctuate depending on what you ate or did not eat, stress levels and activity levels. You have to try and manage a balanced carb intake. Have small frequent meals. Do not fast for long hours. You have to eat 3 main and 3 mid meals. Your diet must include whole grains, seasonal fruits, vegetables, small amounts of nuts and dairy and pulses or dals or lean meats like chicken or fish and egg. Starchy vegetables need to be planned into the diet. Avoid a very heavy meal at one time. Avoid fruit juices, aerated drinks or sugarcane juice, honey, jaggery or sugar. Avoid junk foods. Exercise and stay active. Avoid exercise if sugar levels are above 250mg/dl. Do not attempt to try out too many remedies as you could go into hypoglycaemia. Sleep well. It's all a matter of discipline.

Mr. lybrate-user, Diabetic retinopathy is one of the fairly often seen long term complication of diabetes mellitus. In this microvasculature of retina (small blood vessels supplying the retina) are affected due to excess glucose in the blood. These vessels get blocked, casing hypoxia (lack of oxygen) to retina due to this there will be new blood vessels formed on the retina. These vessels are fragile, they break causing bleeding in front of retina and behind vitreous. This can lead to blindness. Plus those vessels shrivel and pull the retina from its hold causing retinal detachment which also causes blindness. Strict blood glucose control and timely treatment is helpful. Diabetes also affects peripheral nerves, which can result in altered sensation in the feet like tingling, numbness and even burning sensation. Therefore, it is essential to achieve a strict blood glucose control. Thanks.

Please take your mother to a Proper Diabetologist or Physician and take Proper Allopathic Medicines. Please don't do all these experiments with other forms of medicines. These days there are lots of different medicines which claim to reduce Diabetes, but there is no scientific evidence to prove thisthis. Also if you want proper advice please mention Fasting - PP Sugar levels and HbA1c test levels when you ask questions. Diabetes can be controlled/managed by a proper regulated diet. 3. Avoid all forms of simple sugars like Colas, juices, sweets, biscuits, cakes etc. 5. Eat every two hours small meals/snacks. Take more green vegetables/salads. 6. Eat lot of proteins like dals, sprouts, egg, chicken etc. 7. Take chapatis made of multigrain atta. 8. Drink lot of water. 9. Take these herbs which are known to improve sugar levels - tulsi, cinnamon, karela, flax seeds. 10. Do at least 30 mins of walk everyday.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Doing good amount of exercise, taking a healthy balanced diet that provides exact calories as required definitely helps in better control of blood glucose levels. Since there is no mention of either the medication being taken and actual blood glucose levels and HbA1c%, there is no way to assess whether your glucose levels are in control. For a young person with T2 DM it is essential to maintain FBG < 100 mg, PP 150 to 160 mg & HbA1c%< 6.8. If not then you are inviting various long term complications of diabetes affecting every single vital organ. As regards giving a specific diet plan, I need to know your current dietary pattern, extent of daily exercise, current medication with proper dosage. Then only I will be able to give a diet plan. Thanks.

It keeps on changing. Why.
Mr. Lybrate-user, fasting or pp blood glucose levels depend on the intake of food and ability of insulin to help glucose utilisation by cells. So levels will vary depending on our daily food intake. If one eats more, level will go up. 140 mg is high, ideally it should be around 100 mg. Levels may also change if treatment is not adequate. Thanks.

Unfortunately there is no permanant solution for diabetic persons. Regarding line of treatment medicines are vary from person to person. Which depends on the reading of the blood glucose level of particular patient. So regarding medicine part you should ask along with the blood sugar levels.
