Dear Doctor, Good Morning! What is Thyroid? Why it happens? Causes & Cures? what are the remedies? Any medical help?

MBBS, DNB (General Medicine)
General Physician, Delhi
Thyroid is a hormonal organ. Hormones are signals in our body which effect various vital processes of the body. You can link them to traffic lights for the smooth and safe flow of traffic in the body. Unfortunately due to several known and unknown reasons, some hormonal organs like thyroid start to underperform or over perform leading to hypo or hyper function respectively. When we prescribe medicine for hypothyroid patients - we just provide supplementation of deficient hormone in the body. We currently have no medicine to cure the thyroid gland - we just have medicine to fulfil the hormone that was supposed to be manufactured by the thyroid gland. Since the requirement is daily - that is why the medicine is given daily. Since the requirement is lifelong- thats why the medicine is lifelong. The scope of open consult is limited to only advice and not prescription - kindly approach through private consult for prescription.

Im suffering for thyroid disorder Last year it was hyper now its hypo I'm using thyroid Give me permanent treatment.
Thyroid whether hypo or hyper should be treated. Usually hormones are given in synthetic form to treat it. Homoeopathy looks for the cause which has resulted in this complaint. To ascertain the cause the genetic make up of you has to be ascertained with proper homoeopathic consultation and the drug came after assessment has to be given.

Sugar levels are consistently 150 fasting and 250 PP (HBA1C 8.5) Tried Oxra 10 but had to stop due to infection Please advice if insulin is better than strong oral medications. Also confirm if the same nay be discontinued after sugar is under control. I feel medications are causing complications for me also leading to constipation & acidity.

As you know, your diabetes is not under control and its not good for your health. Yes, its better to take insulin to control diabetes when your sugar levels are high with 2 or more oral medicines. And yes, insulin can be discontinued after diabetes is under control, but that should be supervised and decision taken by your treating doctor.

Hello, Thanks for the query. There are some reports which claim that taking green tea reduces blood glucose levels. However, there is no well established clinical evidence on this. Thanks.

lybrate-user, You have grade 1 obesity with a BMI of 33.89 kgs/M2, this itself is the possible cause for diabetes. Even if you reduce your weight by 7to8%, there will a lot of benefit. Only way to do this to take a restricted dietgiving limited calories based on ideal body weight (72 kgs), plus exercising daily for at least 1 hour. Brisk walking could be a good beginning. Banana contains a lot of carbs, hence is not an ideal fruit for a diabetic person. Controlling blood glucose is very essential, otherwise there can be a number of complications that can occur relating to various vital organs. Thanks.

I have put about 10 kg extra in past 2 years. I have pimples and scars on my face. Also dandruff. I don't know whether the heavy hair fall is due to dandruff or over heat in my body or other problems. My menstrual period was delayed 10 days in one month. In all the other months it is normal only. I want to know that whether these all are the symptoms of thyroid. Please give me some advice.

Yes these symptoms may be due to hormonal disturbances like thyroid. But you have to confirm it by laboratory investigation. It wd be appropriate to consult your physician first.

If both tests show elevated levels of blood glucose, you may be diagnosed with prediabetes or diabetes. Fasting blood sugar levels under 100 mg/dL are considered normal. Levels between 100 and 125 mg/dL are diagnostic for prediabetes.
