Hi, Good Morning Doctor I am suffering from a thyroid disorder My tsh level is 128.6 & t4 is 3 What medicine I should take to control my disorder and body weight. please suggest me medicine and how much mg is required for a daily dose. I was careless as I was diagnosed with tsh level 6.1 last year and I stop taking medicine. please help me.

Mr. Lybrate-user, such a high level of tsh signifies you have uncontrolled hypothyroidism. This needs immediate treatment with thyroxine hormone, dose will depend on your weight and tsh level as well as t4 level. So please mention your current body weight, then only dose can be advised. Treatment has to be continued for life time. I can not be stopped as one wants to do.

For reduction of fasting sugar lever first of all reduched your dinner. It should be only 250 gram carbohydrate and lots of salad and increase your insulin level and for your post prandial to have lots of fiber rich breakfast. 1 medium bowl ots, wheat flakes, egg white, 2 toast.

Your diet must include a glass of juice (any juice), fresh fruits and a full serving of salads at EVERY meal: cucumber, tomato, carrot, beetroot, radish, onion slices or spring onion, raw cauliflower , cabbage leaf, sprouted seeds etc. Add other greens I hv not mentioned. All this is essential to give you a balanced nutrient boost. Cut out any JUNK FOOD and AERATED drinks totally. Generally foods that come out of a packet, or tin can, or bottle shud be avoided. Exercise to increase circulation:- 2 mins of hard exercise then 1 min rest - do this four times a day. You can either do it all in one go or split it into sessions through the day. In total it is only 12 mins a day so should not be a big issue. A very useful exercise is to jump in one place simulating skipping. Build up your time to 2 mins. of jumping. The benefits of this is ungaugeable, and cannot be explained medically as yet, it effects the entire body. In conclusion, live and eat healthy and you will develop energy, a glowing skin and a healthy 'go' in life -regardless of age. In todays urban atmosphere, exercise indoors unless you live in rural areas or in the hills...otherwise buy electrical air purifiers, put it on full and exercise in front of it.

It is very difficult to give a clear answer why it happened. But it appears the earlier treatment of giving two sulfonylureas (SU) together was a wrong approach. Ideally one of the SUs is given along with metformin most often. Secondly diabetes itself damages glomerular filtering membrane in the kidney, this leads deterioration of kidney function. That leads to increase in creatinine level, protein excretion etc. In such situation Insulin is the best medication for blood glucose control. Ideally fasting glucose should be closer to 100 mg, PP 160 to 170 mg & HbA1c%<7, then only all the long term complications of diabetes can either be postponed or prevented. Thanks.

MBBS, DGO (cal)
General Physician,
Your HbA1C report is important to monitor. It should be within 6. 5% though many people say till 7% is acceptable. I believe you need titration of medicine. You can take a second opinion.

Pleas tell me that what is the normal blood pressure and quantity of sugar in a human body.

MBBS
General Physician,
Pleas tell me that what is the normal blood pressure and quantity of sugar in a human body.
Normal blood pressure: 120/80 mm hg. However there are diurnal as well as individual variations. Systolic blood pressure may be normal from 110 to 130 and diastolic blood pressure is normal from 70 to 90. Normal range of bp is lower for children. Normal blood glucose in fasting is from 70 to 110 mg/dl and post prandial state is 110 to 140 mg/dl.

I am 30 year old man I am a uric acid problem for which I am getting right leg and backpain.

MBBS, MD - Internal Medicine
Internal Medicine Specialist, Faridabad
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.

My sugar lavel is 135/170 and hba1c 6.8 what can i do. Can i start alopathic medicine or ayurvedic ? please advice me.

MD - General Medicine, MBBS
General Physician,
Please specify as what is 135 and 170. If it is the fasting and post meals sugars. Then both are high. Even though the blood sugars are suggestive of diabetes, the blood sugars are not very high. So I would suggest you to take a diabetic diet and a do some light excercise like brisk walking for 30 mins and repeat sugars after 1 month. Diabetic diet is mainly a diet which avoids sugar containg foods and drinks. Reduce the rice intake. Take more of vegetables.

Hello, Thanks for the query. If the patient is diabetic and has infection with pus in the operated area, then it needs to be examined by a surgeon and if need be properly cleaned and dressed. Because with diabetes infections can be really problematic. There may be need for specific antibiotics also. Therefore, please consult the surgeon who had done the surgery. It is very important. Thanks.

Major symptoms include fatigue, cold sensitivity, constipation, dry skin and unexplained weight gain. Herbal tea with ginger is beneficial for thyroid functioning. In fact, beverages including coffee, tea, carbonated drinks and alcohols should be avoided by patients afflicted with thyroid disorders. In its place herbal tea may be an alternative option. Application of watercress's paste on the enlarged neck is also an effective remedy.
