Mr. Lybrate-user, tsh level above 6 milli units is considered as sub clinical hypothyroidism. Usually treatment is given after the tsh level crosses 10 milli units / ml. Your bmi is 34.43 kgs/ m2, which is grade 1 obesity. Is the weight increase recent one or you have been having this from earlier? because hypothyroidism does lead to weight gain. Some experts are of the opinion even at sub clinical level, it is better to give thyroxine tablets. That is done if any symptoms related hypothyroidism are noticed. You should avoid soy beans, soy containing products, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, radish, peanuts, mustard and coffee. Use iodinated salt. Exercise regularly and take a restricted diet.

The answer is homoeopathy. I do not force you for it but I will advise you to give it a try so as to get rid of life long medicines and that too with side effects. Although you may find it difficult to take regular doses of homoeo medicines daily as compared to one tablet of allopathic medicine that you are taking but the end with homoeopathic medicines is always fruitful and moreover you will be relieved of life long medicines and will be fully treated in 2-3 years depending upon your thyroid levels and amount of effort that you are putting in, if you get the right treatment in the hands of a right homoeo doctor----------so choice is yours whether to go with life long homoeopathic medicines and its side effects or homoeopathic medicines for 2-3 years without any side effects------------

I have elevated uric acid (8.75). Alopurinol just weakens me. What should I do? I eat food as per the urci acid content of each food. I had got five years ago. Thereafter, I am managing by changing food habits. Regards

MBBS, MD - Internal Medicine

A high uric acid level can be caused when your body either produces too much uric acid or your kidneys don't eliminate uric acid rapidly enough. A high uric acid level may cause increasingly frequent attacks of gout, or it may never cause problems. A high uric acid level may also cause some people to develop kidney stones or kidney failure. And some people with a high uric acid level also develop high blood pressure, heart disease or chronic kidney disease, but it's often unclear whether this is a direct cause or merely an early warning sign of these conditions. Factors that may cause a high uric acid level in your blood include: Diuretic medications (water pills),Drinking too much alcohol,Genetics (inherited tendencies),hypothyroidism (underactive thyroid),Immune-suppressing drugs,Niacin, or vitamin B-3, obesity,psoriasis, Purine-rich diet — organ meat, game meat, anchovies, herring, gravy, dried beans, driedpeas, mushrooms and other foods Renal insufficiency — inability of the kidneys to filter waste Tumor lysis syndrome — a rapid release of cells into the blood caused by certain cancers or by chemotherapy for those cancers,Also, you may be monitored for high uric acid levels when undergoing chemotherapy or radiation treatment for cancer. Avoid protein diets, avoid more milk products. bad habits , fast food/fat/oily,salty foods. Coffee, smoking, alcohol intake. Non-veg., take whole grain,oats,green veg.,plenty of water in day time, 1 glass of water at night before bed. Take tab. Zyloric 100 mg once a day. Tab. Ulracet sos for pain in joints.

dear friend fasting sugar is done after a period of prolonged fast of about 12 hours, while randon sugar is done during any time of the day, the diagnosis of diabetes is based of a fasting and a 2h post 75 gm glucose load BSL. random sugar indicates towards likely hood of sugar abnormality.

diabetes can only be controlled, there is no cure at least for now. 120 mg fasting is not showing presence of diabetes. It falls in pre - diabetes state. Following are the criteria to diagnose: 1) normal: fbs 70 to 110 mg/100 ml, pp <140 mg/100 ml & hba1c% <5.9 2) pre - diabetes: fbs 108 to 125 mg, pp 141 to 199 mg, hba1c% 5.9 to 6.4 3) diabetes: fbs 126 and above, pp 200 mg and above, hba1c% 6.5 and above. In your case adapting a modified life style meaning maintaining normal weight (58.5 kgs) (165 cms - 100 = 65 x 0.9 = 58.5 kgs), avoiding sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries, other bakery items, sweetened aerated drinks, fructose cornn syrup containing foods, highly processed foods & high fat milk products. You should consume more of green leafy vegetables, salads and permitted fruits. Exercise daily for at least 1 hour. Refrain from alcohol and smoking. This will help in prevent progress to diabetes or delay it. Thanks.

Increase thirst, increased frequency of urination are some initial symptoms of diabetes but it can vary from being completely asymptomatic to non specific symptoms like weakness, tingling in feet, dry mouth, blurry vision, burning during urination. You need to follow a healthy lifestyle to prevent such metabolic diseases.

Yes your hypothyroidism can cause complications in pregnancy. Thyroid hormones are necessary for brain development in children. In pregnancy tbg increases. Target tsh in first trimester is below 2-2.5.

Why is hypothyroidism caused and what should be the diet for people suffering from this disease?

Why is hypothyroidism caused and what should be the diet for people suffering from this disease?
usually thyroid issues do not occur in isolation. It is important to look at relative deficiencies of other hormones that influence metabolism. Nevertheless, a simplistic answer to your question would be to go for what is known as a" hormone friendly" diet also known as" non-inflammatory" diet. Iodine supplements also help, but it is better to have a structured, supervised supplementation regimen.
