I am 63 years old and I am having sugar for the past 10 years. Needs your suggestion.

First thing a diabetes patient needs to do is lifestyle modification which means doing regular physical exercise, morning walk for at least 30 mins for at least 4 days a week. While having meal, restrict amount of carbohydrates ( rice, sugar, mangoes, banana ) and fat ( oils, butter, mutton) and take plenty of green leafy vegetables. If still your blood sugar is above the target level despite adequate lifestyle modification, you need to take medicines. According to level of blood sugar control, you may need to take more than one diabetes medicines regualrly. Do check your blood pressure, fbs, ppbs, hba1c, urea, creatinine, urine r/e with acr, lipid profile, ecg at 3-4 months interval and report it to your doctor. Never skip your medicines without consultation with your doctor. Stay away from anxiety and stress. Keep your mind refreshed. Always keep a close look at your feet and sole. If you find any ulcers, cuts, numbness immediately consult your doctor. Consult an eye doctor for checking your eyes at least once a year. Hope this helps. Dr. S. Modak.

Suffering from hyperthyroidism (TSH level 7.62 mIU/L, eltroxin 25 mcg tablet is correct medicine for it. Or not?

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. When on treatment for hypothyroidism with adequate dose of Levothyroxine TSh should be maintained around 3 to 4 mU/L, to be free f rom all the symptoms of that condition. Hence, TSh 7.62 mU/l is high, the dose of thyroxine needs to be increased. Thanks.

Hello, Diabetes means high blood sugar. So if you mother is having low blood sugar, that means she has been started on some oral tablets or insulin that could be reducing the blood sugar to quite low levels. Also vomitings and lack of appetite can be due to medication that has been started. Please consult your diabetologist so that he can alter the medication dose. Hope this has helped you Thank you.

Any blood level above 126 in fasting state is considered to be diabetes. It will be better to repeat the test forom a reliable lab by a proper test (not glucometer testing by finger prick). If results are same, you will need consult a doctor for a comprehensive advice.

Hi respected Sir/madam I am ravi I'm suffering from cold n thyroid pain I'm fully confused what should I do its fully pain I please get very some health tips for thyroid pain.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Cold is a seasonal problem or due to allergy, can be treated by simple anti cold remedies or by regular breathing exercise like pranayam. But I am not able to understand the meaning of" thyroid pain" because thyroid gland related conditions cause very little pain in the throat or in the neck. Some times there may be slight pain while swallowing or turning the head. But it is usually mild to moderate. Please make a mention of thyroid hormone levels, that will help in understanding the problem, plus if you have any other symptoms.

now your tsh is normal. you can low dose of eltroxin 12.5 mcg can not stop it. you can take antioxidant-rich fruits and vegetables: 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,

Pure organic honey is not bad. Unfortunately the honey available in the supermarket is usually adultrated with sugar which is bad. If you are sure of the source of the honey you may give it to her in moderation. More important is managing her diet and metabolic balance. Appropriate supplements, excercise and positive lifestyle changes equally important.

Causes And Treatment Of Infertility!

MBBC, MD
Sexologist, Pune
Causes And Treatment Of Infertility!

The inability to conceive for a prolonged duration after trying to do so is usually termed as infertility. This is usually diagnosed when a couple is unable to conceive even after trying regularly, without any kind of contraceptives. There may be many causes and factors for this and it may occur in either or both partners. So, you all need to know the causes and treatment of infertility.

  1. Age: Age is a major factor that can lead to infertility for either partner. Usually, the trend now is to delay having a baby until a woman is in her thirties or even forties, in some cases. This has an adverse effect, particularly on the age of the maternal egg which may or may not be effective as far as fertilisation goes. With the advancement of age, one loses the guarantee of genetic normalcy of the egg as well.
  2. Disorders in ovulation in females: Ovulation is an essential function that helps in releasing the egg that needs to be fertilised when it comes together with the sperm at the time of ovulation. This usually occurs at a certain time every month. But disorders like PCOS or Polycystic Ovary Syndrome can lead to an inability on the part of the ovaries to release these eggs. The treatment for this includes medication that will help in maintaining more regular cycles for the release of eggs.
  3. Male factor causing Infertility: In many cases, it has been seen that anomalies in the semen analysis reveal problems of infertility with males as of low sperm count, low motility of sperm, low quantity of alive and active sperm when it comes to natural conception. In such cases, a sexologist can prescribe you medicines that will increase the semen production for better quantity and quality of the sperm. The doctor can also ask the patient to go through a number of lifestyle changes too includes abstinence from smoking and excessive drinking, as well as the cultivation of a less stressful environment. Hormonal treatment or even surgery may also required to help in some severe cases.
  4. Endometrial polyps: In such cases, the female partner may develop finger like growths that can protrude in the form of tissue and come out of the uterine layer or the uterus. The removal of these polyps with the help of surgical procedures usually helps in such cases.

In many cases where mediation fails, the patients may have to go through IVF (In Vitro Fertilisation) or other such procedures to conceive a child with artificial methods. One must explore all options and find out the best one in terms of the infertility causes that the couple may be facing. You will also need to ensure that you have a well trained and experienced sexologist doctor who can help you with the process and guide you completely about the cause of problem and prescribe you best treatment to manage infertility at the right point of time.

Hypothyroidism can affect married life that means hypothyroidism patient can marry?
Hypothyroidism is not a contagious disease. It does not spread because somebody got married and most importantly it is a treatable disease. Any hypothyroid person with treatment is like any other normal person. Please don't stigmatise a perfectly easy to cure illness into a mysterious disease!

Recently conducted thyroid test at thyrocare, T3 and T4 in normal range. TSH IS 7.51. What should I do next.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. TSH 7.51 mU/L, is above normal, but does not warrant any treatment as it is considered as sub-clinical hypothyroidism. In such situation treatment is given only if one has any of the troublesome symptoms of hypothyroidism. Otherwise you have to check TSH every 6 months to see if it goes beyond 10 mU/L, then treatment is needed. You should avoid soy beans and soy containing foods. Thanks.

I am suffering from sugar so should I have to do and what type of medicine should I take please help me.

General Physician,
I am suffering from sugar so should I have to do and what type of medicine should I take please help me.
Diabetes, often referred to by doctors as diabetes mellitus, describes a group of metabolic diseases in which the person has high blood glucose (blood sugar), either because insulin production is inadequate, or because the body's cells do not respond properly to insulin, or both. It is a difficult task to control blood sugar in the desired normal range. Whatever we eat is metabolised to sugar in the body to provide energy for our daily activities. For the absolute control, one has to monitor his / her blood sugar at regular intervals (Self-Monitoring of Blood glucose – SMBG). Though difficult, this can be done by a glucometer and keep a record. Get an idea of Fasting sugar (FBS) and 2 hours after food (PPBS), & HbA1C (inform me) and check before dinner and after every major food. The basic idea is to reduce the food intake to 1/3 of what you take now. The dictum of sugar control is diet, exercise, diet + medicine and at later stage medicine+ Insulin will be needed. There are different diet plans of varying calories for each person depending on his activity & life style. For diabetes, hypertension (high BP) and many long-term illness control there is the need for regular advice and follow up. Just one time consultation or advice is not enough to guide a diabetic in scientifically & medically correct manner. For giving you regular follow up you ask me with all details like your daily eating pattern and medicines you take. I assure you a proper guidance. If you keep in touch personally.

How Ayurveda can help manage diabetes? Recently detected with it. Hb1ac at 8. And triglycerides are high too.
Abhraka Bhasma (Sataputa: Useful in diabetes and excessive urination. This can be used in several diseases with different adjuncts. DOSAGE: 1g = 4 doses. For excessive heat and dry cough, add equal quantity of sithopaladichurna and use one dose both morning and evening with sugar. But personally I feel allopathy mesicines are best for treating diabates.
