Hi lybrate-user, your thyroid levels are slightly high it should be around 2.5 when trying to get pregnant. Diet won't help that much in hypothyroidism, you can try for gluten free diet. Ideally you should have thyroid medicine it will be corrected in a month don't worry it's not major issues. Don't stop talking medicine without consulting doctor.

Mr. Lybrate-user, from your description it appears that both diabetes and hypertension are not in control. Bp should ideally be 120 to 130/70 to 80 mm hg. Your bmi is 24.91 kgs/m2, which is marginally high (normal <23 kgs/m2). You have not mentioned anything about blood sugar level and hba1c%. Unless all details are made available, difficult to comment. However, as regards bp you have to initiate treatment immediately. Thanks.

Mr. lybrate-user, It is absolutely essential to have blood glucose is strict control with fasting closer to 100 mg, PP 150 to 160 mg & HbA1c%< 6.8. If blood glucose is not in control then a considerable amount is lost ibn urine, leading to weight loss and weakness. Hence, it is essential to control the blood glucose effectively as mentioned above. You have not mentioned any details about glucose levels and HbA1c%, so it is difficult to give any opinion or advice. It is better if you come in a private conversation, with all the above mentioned details plus dietary details and extent of daily exercise, then I will be bale to help. Thanks.

Reduce your weight by 25 to 30 kg if possible by strict diet and exercise. Your medicine list shows you are hypertensive as well so it is better for your heart to do that. You should have a low carbohydrate diet (avoiding potatoes, rice, direct sugar etc) and eat a lot of salads for fiber and filling effect. Eat frequent small meals in place of 2 full meals

Papillary carcinoma is very curable. If there are secondaries after total thyroidectomy you need to undergo functional neck dissection followed by radio iodine ablation therapy. You need to be under constant follow. Results are excellent and you can expect normal life span.

Thyroid problem & Homeopathy:

Thyroid is an Endocrinal Gland that secrets Thyroid Hormones which balances the Metabolism.When the secretions altered, the depending on the lower r Higher levels, there will be Either Hypothyroidism r HyperThyroidism. In Hyperthyroidism, there will be symptoms like loss of Wt, thinning, Anxiety, increased Heart beat{Palpitation}, Tremors, Puffiness round Eyes, Excessive Sweat, Moon Face, Enlargement of External throat(Enlarged Glandular swelling called as GOITRE) in severe condition, Stare look, Mentally confusion, Dlirium etc are the main significant symptoms of Hyper thyroidism.
In Hypothyroidism, symptoms r quite altered. Like here there will be More Gain in weight, Dyspnoea, Dryness of Skin,increased sensitivity to Weather changes, mostly Intolerance of Cold,Irritability, mood swings, Disinterested in work, sleepy, Weakness etc r the Symptoms for Hypothyroidism.
But Hairloss, Unwanted hair Growth, Irregular periods, Delay in Menarche, Miscarriages or Infertility are common in both.
The reasons for Thyroid Disturbances are , Excessive r less consumption of Iodine in Diet, Excessive Intake may b either because of other medications, which indirectly contains more iodine content or, induces Gland for more harmonal secretions,Hormonal Imbalance because of lack of co-ordination b/w Hypothalamus, Pituitary gland{which is another endocrinal gland, which indirectly controls the Thyroid},Excessive smoking,any Viral illness,Chronic Disorders, Any other medications, Improper intake of Diet, Hereditary, genetical anomalies are the main reasons for this Irregularity.
Mostly it is common in women, the age of menopause, @ the age /after of Menarche or in pregnancy time, due to the natural hormonal imbalance.If its physiological, it will be normal automatically after some times, but if its related to any other pathology, then there should be medication help needed, based on various checkups, like blood test, USG etc.
Some times, it could b suspected in the neonatal , childhood period also, based on the symptoms Mental retardation, Stunted growth, Obesity, Amenorrhoea or early puberty,Lower IQ etc. Then also, we can go for Thyroid profile test along with other Growth hormonal Checkup , to explore the diagnosis.
Right Time Diagnosis, Regular Medical Checkup,Proper T/t will help to get cured gradually.
But If ignored,neglected,then the C/o will lead to other complications, even cancer also.
In Homeopathy,Medicines like Thyroidinum, Iodum, Bromium, Calcarea carb, Calc. Iod, Lyco, Nux.Vom, Nat. Mur, sepia, Lapis alba etc all will help in balancing the harmonal secretion, if taken according to their symptom similarity, individualbasis, as per Expert?s Guidance.

Mr. lybrate-user, It is clear from your blood glucose level that there is diabetes. Once diabetes is present, then treatment with drugs is absolutely essential. Plus diet control and exercise are also needed. Lipid profile also shows high LDL. It is necessary to maintain fasting glucose around 100 mg, PP 150 to 160 mg & HbA1c%<6.8. Otherwise long term complications of diabetes related to various organs are bound to set in more rapidly. Even your weight is more with a BMI of 26.98 kgs/M2. Ideal body weight at your age and height should be 69 kgs. If you are interested in appropriate treatment please come back with following details: current fasting, PP blood glucose level, HbA1c%, present dietary pattern, &extent of daily exercise. Based on those details I will be able to advise necessary treatment. Thankks.
