If your thyroid hormones now normal and other hormones also normal then you can get pregnant easy. Good time for sex is 8th days to 15 days after menses period. Ovulation time mostly is 7th days after menses. To confirm ovulation of egg. Pl. Do usg for ovulation of egg. And reply on lybrate. Com

I have been found diabetic from one year. I consulted a MD and he prescribed metformin+ glimepiride tabs. After two months he prescribed only metformin SR 500. From then I am using them. After first report I never go beyond fasting 110 and PP 130 in several tests. I quit sweet taste from a year. My question is can I consume any fruit in some small quantity? Is there any problem if I drink tea with sugar occasionally?

Hello, Yes you can have results in fact high fiber content fruits will help you manage your blood sugar levels better. Tea can be taken by cutting down half amount of sugar, which you generally use. Add ginger, mint, cardamon to your tea, to compensate on the taste of sweet tea.

Remedy Required FOR THE UNFORTUNATE THING THAT HAPPENED (PLEASE SEE BELOW) Without any symptom my wife (62 years) went for T3, T4, THS test as a routine check up 1) Although TSH Level is Elevated is 7.87 uIU/ml (Normal Range-0.27-4.90), 2) T3 Level is Normal at 1.40 ng/ml (Normal Range-0.80 -2.0) 3) and T4 Level is Normal at 11.35.ug/dL (Normal Range-5.1-14.1). endocrinologist was consulted. The doctor opined it as Subclinical Hypothyroidism (beginning) and recommended Thyroxine Supplement.(Thyronorm 25 mcg) and advised to see him after 3 months of taking medicine and repeat tests. As a precautionary measure AFTER 28 DAYS ONLY I DID a REPEAT TEST FOR TSH ONLY in the same laboratory AND SURPRISINGLY TSH WAS FOUND TO BE ONLY 0.07 (Normal Range-0.34-5.60) the Normal Range Varied in the Two Cases and the Laboratory explained A) First TSH Test Was done as per cubic E411 Method and B) Second TSH Test was done as per Access 2 Method I again went to the doctor concerned and he advised to STOP THYRONORM I am extremely worried due to the fact that normally ONY AFTER TAKING MEDICINE FOR 28 DAYS ONLY HOW THE TSH FIGURE CAME DOWN SO ABNORMALLY AND MEDICINE WAS STOPPED ,ALTHOUGH PEOPLE SAY THAT ONCE STARTED THYROID MEDICATION WILL CONTINUE WHAT PRECAUTIONARY MEASURES CAN BE TAKEN NOW TO AVOID PROBLEM. SHE HAD NO PROBLEM /SYMPTOM WHEN THE MEDICINE WAS STARTED AND NOW ALSO SHE HAS NO PROBLEM When Routine Tests were done Lipid Profile checked, ALL OK, Complete Blood Count ALL OK. ECG ,Echo Cardiogram ALL OK. Urine Routine Test ALL OK Only thing is She is prediabetes and is suffering from Chronic Urticaria (Skin Itchiness. Doctors including Skin Specialists consulted and Everybody Opined Chronic Urticaria May Not be Curable, It may Go On Its Own. She takes levocetirizine (5 mg) tablet as and when needed, roughly one tablet in 5 days to stop itching. To Control Blood Pressure She is Taking telvas 3D (Telmisartan 40+Amlopedine 5+hydrochlorothiazide 12.5),One Cranberry Capsule daily to keep her urinary track normal (As per doctor) and Pregabalin 75 +Methicolabamine 1500 mcg daily As you are a leading Endocrinologist will you kindly help me /with regards and thanks.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Usually in subclinical hypothyroidism no treatment is advocated, unlee there are troubling or disturbing symptoms related to hypothyroidism. So in first place there should have been no thyroxine given. Since she was given 25 mcg, the TSH has gone down below normal. So the doctor has asked you to stop it. My subscription is stop treating now, then check TSH after 8 weeks. Then inform, if the level goes above 10 mU/L, then only treatment is needed. Otherwise nothing is needed. If you have any doubts please come in a private conversation. Thanks.

Dear, I can empathize well with you. Ed (erectile dysfunction) is very common with long standing diabetes. Firstly control blood sugar very well. Improve your lifestyle. Increase physical activity, good diet control, smoking cessation and reduce the alcohol. If you're not having any of above than you need to visit a doctor to get prescription for medicine that helps get good erection. It'll be worth taking your partner in confidence. A detailed discussion about your problems will halp.

Jalra 50/500 and zoryl, and basalog insulin are given for diabetes to my mom, why 3 different drugs?

Jalra 50/500 and zoryl, and basalog insulin are given for diabetes to my mom, why 3 different drugs?
Hello, Thanks for the query. In diabetes when required control is not achieved with single drug, multiple drugs are used. In T2 diabetes the beta cell mass is already down to 50 % by the time diagnosis is made. Then if severe hyperglycemia is present then there's further damage to remaining beta cells. In such situations Insulin injections are required along with oral anti- diabetic drugs. Thus the reason for using more drugs is to achieve better glucose control. Thanks.

gfr 53 is low, means kidneys are affected due to long term diabetes. Apart from gliclazide what other medications are you taking? how are sugar levelsand hba1c%. If diabetes is in check nephropathy can also be controlled. Do you have high blood pressure, if so what are the drugs for that? few precautions restrict salt intake and do not eat more proteins. Please inform me otherdetails.
