My daughter is only 16 days old. N her tsh level is 6.3. please tell me wat is it mean.

MBBS, MD - Internal Medicine
Internal Medicine Specialist, Faridabad
if tsh of her is 6.3.it means she have hypothyroidism. Drink more water, high-carbohydrate foods such as potatoes, rice, pasta and bread. You can take Nutrient-rich foods that improve your health may also benefit your thyroid gland, antioxidant-rich fruits and vegetables more plenty of water: Blueberries, tomatoes, bell peppers, and other foods rich in antioxidants can improve overall health and benefit the thyroid gland. Eating foods high in B vitamins, like whole grains, may also help. 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. Taking a supplement may help, give her tab. thyroxine 75 mcg before meal in morning daily for life time.tests repeat every 3 to 6 months

Is it true that taking insulin is more useful than tablets for diabetes patients? why?

P.G.Diploma in dietetics and applied nutrition

Hi intake of insulin and tablets depends on the severity of the problem, actually higher the problem the person is switched from medicines to insulin. So the basic motto should be to reduce both which would be possible by a having a disciplined diet kindly consult privately for detailed diet thanks.

My wife is 57 years old her clinical symptoms were fatigue, feeling sad, tiredness, morning headache. I am retired male nurse come medical lab tech (naval hosp. Retired) got her thyroid and lipid profile. All were normal, but tsh was 13.02 hence she was advise thyronorm 25 mcg daily. After 3 months repeated test report is 0.14 where as t3 and t4 remains unchaged (t3 104.6, t4 10.00 should we reduce the dose or we can continue with same dose. Said doctor is not available. Please advise thanks & regards.

The tsh values are low because she is taking thyronorm 25 mcg, daily, and this is quite a low dose, when tsh is low t3 & t4 will be normal. Thyronorm is also t4 only. So please do not think of reducing the dosage. This has to continue. Only thing is keep checking tsh levels once 3 - 4 months.

If you have diabetes (fasting >126 mg and pp >200 mg) then treatment with appropriate drugs is a must. By avoiding to take drugs you are inviting the serious long term complications of diabetes. Diabetes causes upset in carbohydrate, fat and protein metabolism, it affects small and large blood vessels, affects eyes (retina), kidneys causing total failure, affect neres - neuropathy, affects lower limbs and heart. So proper treatment is absolutely essential. In addition to drugs, strict diet control and exercise to maintain or reduce weight is also necessary.

As par bmi calculated in your case your bmi is coming to 31. That means you are falling in the category of obese. Obesity gives rise to several health problems and diabetes is one of them. It also causes a less appreciated condition called sleep apnoea syndrome. If you are snoring too much and loud. And you have significant daytime somnolence (feeling sleepy during day. If your bystanders watch that you stop breathing for long pause. Then struggle and wake up briefly and then again fall into sleep with loud snoring. You are perhaps having this syndrome. Once it is suspected. First thing will be a proper diagnosis by a chest physician (preferably) who will carry pit a sleep test. This simple test will diagnose your problem in a day. Accordingly you will be suggested treatment. In sleep apnoea. The treatment is very effective. Your daily use of revoltril will no more be a necessity. I wish you also take care of your excess weight issue more seriously and put more endeavour to bring it down to normal level. Once you achieve that. Your diabetes and blood pressure will also come under better control and you may need to takei less medicines.

MBBS, MD - General Medicine

If you are diabetic and on diet & exercise treatment or in addition oral drugs or insulin you are required to test fasting &pp atlest once in 3 months if your control is good as in your case. Also get hba1c atleast 2-3 times a year for monitoring. Every year one should check for various organ complcions such as kidney eyes heart nerves blood vessels etc

CDIABT, MBBS

For diabetes follow a diet low in carbohydrate, low in salt, 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. Even after following a good diet and exercise, your blood sugar is out of control, then you will require medicine to control your blood sugar.

Do sugary soft drinks lead to diabetes and I have stomach pain week in three time?

MBBS
General Physician, Cuttack
It does not cause diabetes unless you have risk factors like obesity, hereditary tendency etc. It is better to minimise sugar consumption in any form since it can add on to calorie causing overweight and related complications.

For a hypothyroid condition there is no specific or special food. And it is best advised to have a diet planned as per the thyroid levels, lifestyle and history. Though you can follow some guidelines - have small frequent meals. Do not fast for long hours. Avoid a very heavy meal at one time. Avoid fruit juices, aerated drinks or sugarcane juice, honey, jaggery or sugar if having insulin resistance. Avoid junk foods. Exercise and stay active. Do not attempt to try out too many remedies as you could go into lowered metabolism. Sleep well. It's all a matter of discipline. But don't give up. A good diet and exercise will help keep metabolism going.
