Suffering from hypothyroidism ,tsh 14. Is there any medicine to get things back to normal ?
Mr. Lybrate-user, hypothyroidism is due to deficiency of thyroxine hormone produced by thyroid gland. Therefore, treatment is to a supplement of that hormone as thyroxine tablets daily. Dose depends on body weight, tsh level and t4 level. Once treatment is begun, most symptoms will be in control. Thanks.

I am 18, and I had got checked my two months before and TSH came out 8.79. I tested my thyroid due to which my doctor asked me to take thyrobless for a month n I took it only for twenty days then I got relived. So I stopped taking it becoz from when I tested my thyroid since then I was having the problem of unable to take deep breath and having a light heaviness in the left chest area when I fall on bed for sleeping or using phone or something else. Doctor can you please tell could this breathing and heaviness problem be because of hypothyroid?

No, not at all. Breathlessness and Chest heaviness are not on the symptoms list of Hypothyroidism. And by stopping your medicine you have not done the right thing. You can also watch my video here on Lybrate about Thyroid diseases for more information. LINK: https://www.Lybrate.com/hs/HT/ca4edab5576d0d6c8cd221f929c1ff0b.

I am diagnosed for hypothyroidism with 8.5 tsh. I am advised to take eltroxin 25. I have severe skin allergies and 11.5 hemoglobin. Any problem?

Hypothyroidism has to be treated by thyroxine hormone. Skin allergy and low hb are separate issues. They need to be treated wuthering specific drugs. Low hb can affect your ability to work, so take cap vitcifol 1 at night for at least 4 months.

This is a case of diabetes mellitus type 2, due to deficiency of insulin production probably. Insulin is a hormone which helps to metabolize sugar in our blood. Fasting blood sugar may remain normal sometimes, which does not mean that she cannot be diabetic. In your case, it is postprandial hyperglycemia which is also a feature of diabetes mellitus type 2. So, consult any endocrinologist or diabetologist very urgently. If she is left untreated at this moment, than her blood sugar may rise more. High blood sugar is very harmful heart, brain, kidney, nerves and eyes. So, maintain diabetic diet from now onward.

My uncle is highly diabetic. Is diabetes curable? What can we do to keep his health at par?
For diabetes follow a diet low in carbohydrate, low in fat and high in fibre. Walking for 30 mins a day for at least 5 days in a week is recommended. Follow a stress free life. Diabetes is not curable but can be kept under control.

I am diabetic from last 10 years I am on gulconorm g plus 3 in morning and metafort 500 in night. Now my sugar pp is 175 and fasting 130. My triglycerides are 220 and hdl is 34. What is the good treatment for me. Any any sideeffect of these medicine. I am 45 years male.

Hi The medications seem to be fine and they are not known to have many severe side effects. I would suggest to include lifestyle changes such as dietary control and some physical exercise in addition to these medications for better control of sugars. Diabetes rarely comes under control by taking medications alone.
