I am 50 yr. Old man and a diabetic patient with maximum sugar level of 140 after meals and on taking metformin-500 twice daily. My Blood pressure remains 146/100 in morning with pulse rate of 67-70 / per minute. Sir, which medicine should I take to control my diastolic pressure? At present I am taking amlodipine 5mg. With 12.5% hydrochlorothiazide, but of no benefits. I have now stopped taking tobacco for the last 5-6 days.

1.Your blood sugar is under control, continue with metformin tablet 2.Your Bp is not under control. The combination of amlodepine with hydrochlorothiazide is effective in controlling Bp. 3.Continue for some days, reduce your salt intake, control your diet, go for regular exercise. 4.Monitor your BP and if still it is not controlled, consult physician for alternative medicine like Telmasatan with amlodepine

Usually diabetes medicines don't result in change in urine colour. However, if you are taking vitamins, then it is possible. Please start drinking extra water. If it persists, please check a urine routine.

For diabetes follow a diet low in carbohydrate, low in fat and high in fibre. Avoid bakery products. Avoid too much rice and potato. Avoid fried stuff. Avoid chocolate, cakes, ice cream, soft drinks and fruit juices. Eat lots of vegetables. Walk for at least 30 minutes a day for 5 days in a week. Insulin will work better if taken in combination with diet and exercise. Medication and insulin dosage will depend on your blood sugar level.

Hello doctor I had TSH level of 4.93 on 06/02/16 (during my first trimester). I started taking 100 mcg of thyronorm daily since today ie. On 23/10.16 (for about 1 and half months). When should I change my dose? I am worried if my baby is unnecessarily exposed to high dose of thyroxine? Please suggest.

Hello, madam, in pregnancy, tsh level should be maintained around 2 milli units/ml. Taking thyroxine 100mcg, no way burdens the baby. In fact it is recommended that in the first trimester tsh should be <2 milli units, for better fetal growth and maintenance of pregnancy.

How to overcome thyroid problems because it may cause severe problems to our health because I need to know how it will get cured my girlfriend has can you please help me in overcoming?

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Hello" thyroid problems" is rather unclear. Thyroid is the normal gland in us, it produced thyroxine hormone, essential for brain development and functioning. Plus essential for all metabolic activities of the body. There can be hypothyroidism, where deficiency of thyroxine occurs, leading to weight gain, swelling of face, legs, feet, intolerance to cold, slow heart rate, dry skin, dry hair and hair fall, menstrual irregularities, difficulty iin conception, improper fetal development, miscarriage, anxiety and depression. Similarly hyperthyroidism where there is excess of thyroid activity, leading to weight loss, rapid heart rate, protruding eyes, trembling feeling, palpitations, anxiety etc. Both these conditions are well controlled by appropriate treatment. Low iodine in water, and diet can lead to hypothyroidism. That is why iodinated salt has to be used. Still of late cases of hypothyroidism have increased a lot. Another disease is hashimoto's thyroiditis, which also causes hypothyroidism. These can be well controlled, but there is no cure. In case of hyperthyroidism some times thyroid gland is removed, then hypothyroidism develops. In any case treatment usually for lifetime.
