lybrate-user, TSH 1.43 mU/L, is a good level. It means hypothyroidism is well controlled. You please continue the same dose. Check TSH level once in 8 weeks, if level goes further down, then may cut the dose by about 12.5 mcg. Thanks.

Hello, I am 23 yrs old girl and I am suffering from thyroid disease and my Tsh level is increased by 9, and my weight is increasing day by day. What should I do?

Diploma in Diabetology, MBBS

Check your levels of thyroid antibodies. If they are high then you need to start medications for thyroid. What you have is subclinical hypothyroidism. A small dose of thyroid hormone tablet will solve your problems. Your weight loss will be achieved only after correction of tsh levels & following a regular diet & exercise programme.

Your post prandial sugar raised to a high level, you should check HbA1c levels and can start with Tab. METFORMIN 500MG once a day in between breakfast. For diet you take rice in less amount and substitue with Roti and other vegitables also. Check the difference in 2 weeks by doing Fasting and PPBS and consult again.

Eating foods high in B vitamins, like whole grains, may also help. flax oil, Selenium: Tiny amounts of selenium are needed for enzymes that make thyroid hormones to work properly. Eating selenium-rich foods, such as sunflower seeds or Brazil nuts, can be beneficial. Tyrosine: This amino acid is used by the thyroid gland to produce T3 and T4.

Dear lybrate user with the limited amount of information provided it appears that you are concerned about your fathers diabetic status. It could had been better had you provided us with fasting sugars, hba1c status along with complete medication list for better understanding of his situation. He appears to be insulin deficient so will need that for now. Regular exercise, diet and medication as advised is the key to successful treatment of diabetes. He will also need test on regular basis for management of his condition. Hope this solves your query. Any more concern then kindly feel free to revert.

Hye, thanks for the query. Usually in hyperthyroidism your metabolism is much more than normal and hence your nutrient needs are very high. When your eating habits are poor or not enough it can cause drastic weight loss. Being underweight can be a concern if it's the result of poor nutrition. Here are some healthy ways to gain weight when you're underweight: eat more frequently. When you're underweight, you may feel full faster. Eat five to six smaller meals during the day rather than two or three large meals. Choose nutrient-rich foods. As part of an overall healthy diet, choose whole-grain breads, rice and cereals; fruits and vegetables; dairy products; lean protein sources; and nuts. Don't fill up on diet soda, coffee and other drinks with few calories and little nutritional value. Instead, drink smoothies or healthy shakes. Snack on nuts, dried fruits and fresh fruits. Even when you're underweight, be mindful of excess sugar and fat. An occasional slice of cake or ice cream is fine. But most sweets should be healthy and provide nutrients in addition to calories. Sheera, lassi and chikki are good choices. Exercise, especially strength training, can help you gain weight by building up your muscles. Exercise may also stimulate your appetite.

Glynase usually works during the first few years & then starts failing. You should consider starting gliptins along with metformin.

Yes your tsh is higher than the upper limit hence, to meet the thyroxine hormone need of your body those tablets have to be taken and that too for life. Dosage has to decided by the doctor, you may start with 50 mcg per day. Take it on empty stomach and nothing to be taken for 2 hours after that.

Can diabetic live longer if one has erectile dysfunction

DNB (Obst and Gynae), MS (Obst and Gynae- Gold Medalist), MBBS (Gold Medalist, Hons)
Gynaecologist,
Erectile dysfunction is not a life threatening condition. But it indicates that your diabetes is not properly controlled or you already have developed diabetic neuropathy (nerve damage) or damage to blood vessels (veins). There are multiple ways of treating erectile dysfunction in diabetes. But the most important one is to control blood sugar. And take drugs for erectile problems after consulting doctors, never take drugs directly from medicine shops. Al the best.

I have thyroid since 8 months and I have very irregular periods and I am trying to conceive what to do?

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
I have thyroid since 8 months and I have very irregular periods and I am trying to conceive what to do?
Lybrate-user, hypothyroidism causes irregularity of menstrual periods. But if is well controlled, then all the symptoms disappear including menstrual irregularities. To achieve good control tsh levels should be between 3 to 4 milli units when on treatment. Further, if conception is desired then tsh levels have to be brought down to 2 to 3 milli units/ml. Otherwise conception may not occur, if occurs, fetal development may be affected and pregnancy outcome may not be good. So please see that tsh levels are brought down to 2 to 3 milli units even before you conceive. If you have any doubts please come back. Best of luck.

If you are vegetarian for ethical and other personal reason, then you want to be sure to include plenty of high protein plant based foods. I do not encourage regular consumption of soy "designer" foods such as energy bars. Tofu and tempeh would be better choices. Over consumption of gluten - the protein portion of grains such as wheat and oats - is also not the best choice, especially if you experience any GI disturbances. Nut butters, such as almond, are good. I was vegetarian for a long time, but realize how much better a "machine" I am now that I eat eggs and fish. 2 eggs in the morning can carry me successfully for many hours. This is giving my adrenal glands the support they need. Fish provides those heart healthy fats we all need; salmon is the number one choice. You'll just need to figure out your approach, and get a food chart to see how much protein is in the foods you choose. All grains and beans have protein, it just takes more. Your diet is now more carb focused, so it does require more fine tuning to stabilize your blood sugars. You can include flax seed oil which might work for you, but folks with long standing diabetes often need fish oil. A multivitamin, B-complex can be purchased anywhere. Just make sure your vitamins are hypoallergenic, preservative free, etc.

take tab. thyroxin 150 mcg bbf. , cap. pantop dsr bbf. Untreated hypothyroidism can lead to a number of health problems: Goiter. Constant stimulation of your thyroid to release more hormones may cause the gland to become larger — a condition known as a goiter. Hashimoto thyroiditis is one of the most common causes of a goiter. Although generally not uncomfortable, a large goiter can affect your appearance and may interfere with swallowing or breathing. Heart problems. Hypothyroidism may also be associated with an increased risk of heart disease, primarily because high levels of low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol — the "bad" cholesterol — can occur in people with an underactive thyroid. Even subclinical hypothyroidism, a more benign condition than true hypothyroidism, can cause an increase in total cholesterol levels and impair the pumping ability of your heart. Hypothyroidism can also lead to an enlarged heart and heart failure. Mental health issues. Depression may occur early in hypothyroidism and may become more severe over time. Hypothyroidism can also cause slowed mental functioning. Peripheral neuropathy. Long-term uncontrolled hypothyroidism can cause damage to your peripheral nerves — the nerves that carry information from your brain and spinal cord to the rest of your body, for example your arms and legs. Signs and symptoms of peripheral neuropathy may include pain, numbness and tingling in the area affected by the nerve damage. It may also cause muscle weakness or loss of muscle control. Myxedema. This rare, life-threatening condition is the result of long-term, undiagnosed hypothyroidism. Its signs and symptoms include intense cold intolerance and drowsiness followed by profound lethargy and unconsciousness. A myxedema coma may be triggered by sedatives, infection or other stress on your body. If you have signs or symptoms of myxedema, you need immediate emergency medical treatment. Infertility. Low levels of thyroid hormone can interfere with ovulation, which impairs fertility. In addition, some of the causes of hypothyroidism — such as autoimmune disorder — also impair fertility. Treating hypothyroidism with thyroid hormone replacement therapy may not fully restore fertility. Other interventions may be needed, as well. Birth defects. Babies born to women with untreated thyroid disease may have a higher risk of birth defects than may babies born to healthy mothers. These children are also more prone to serious intellectual and developmental problems. Infants with untreated hypothyroidism present at birth are at risk of serious problems with both physical and mental development. But if this condition is diagnosed within the first few months of life, the chances of normal development are excellent.
